For the longest time I just accepted that a Toa of light would be bad for the Makuta because “Well of course they are the shadow people and hes a light person.” But recently I had a thought:
The Makuta while obviously associated with shadows, arent literal beings made of shadow. Its only the element they control. And while sure a Toa of light would counter that elemental power quite effectively, that still leaves them with over 40 other powers that light doesnt exactly affect much.
Im not entirely sure light would be the most effective element to use against protosteel and gas either, plasma for example would seem a lot more effective on that end.
Did the thought of one of their abundant powers being less effective realy disturbe the makuta this much or am I forgeting some aspect of the makuta that made them terrified enough to raid the fortress of, one of, the universes most powerful beings? If I did, what is it?
