Metru Nui

Not much is known about Baku except on Metru Nui, he was taken into a Matoran Sphere by the Vahki in the Coliseum. He was reawakened by the Toa Metru on Mata Nui.

Mata Nui

As a side effect for being in the Matoran Sphere. Baku not only lost his memories of Metru Nui, but he was weakened and shrunk.

On Mata Nui, Baku was a lava-farmer and short-term member of the Guard . However, he was infamous in the guard for using a practice sword as opposed to the tools the members of the Guard used. Baku was chosen by Turaga Seihu when he fought Draku's minions as they invaded Ta-Koro.

After the Bohrok-Kal were defeated, Baku was rebuilt into a stronger form specifically by Seihu.

Return to Metru Nui

After the migration to Metru Nui in about 1000 AGC, Baku was helping to reestablish Seihu’s school in Metru Nui. He was appointed as leader to the Matoran team, much to his initial discomfort, once Yahru left for Voya Nui.

Spherus Magna

After the Battle of Bara Magna, in which the Great Spirit Robot was rendered inhabitable, Baku and the other Matoran later evacuated the Matoran Universe and he is now living on Spherus Magna training with the newly established School of Mata-Taekworu Zhex.

Abilities and Traits

He is a skilled swordsman and also courageous and honorable. However, sometimes he is known to have fierce temper, fortunately his temper is often for the right reasons, like when things would threaten the peace of fellow Matoran. He didn't want to be leader at first because of the demands it gave, but he grew into the role. His fighting style is seen as direct, fierce and balanced (not too fast but not too slow).

He tends to rely heavily on his swordsmanship, although he works on improving his unarmed fighting skills.

Powers and Equipment

He wields a pair of Spark Katana, which were made for him by a good friend of his who is a sword smith in Ta-Koro.


  • If we could describe Baku's fighting style in real life terms, his fighting style is like a mix of primarily Kenjutsu, mixed with a little Karate and Northern Shaolin fighting.
