Dark Energon Dark Elemental Energy has snatched up the attention this time around, so let us celebrate this unique and innovative article.
Posing a threat to Toa everywhere, Dark Elemental Energy is the antithesis of Elemental Powers. Able to nullify a target's Elemental potential, Dark Elemental Energy is diametrically opposed to everything we know and love about BIONICLE. Conceived by Ahpolki Inika, Dark Elemental Energy traces its origins back to the Core War, where it was discovered in an uninhabited region of Spherus Magna and brought to the attention of the Great Beings. Recognizing the potential of the substance, the Great Beings were known to have programmed Dark Elemental Energy into the Marendar Unit, as well as stashing a supply inside the Great Spirit Robot as an added precaution should the Toa population ever become disenfranchised with the will of Mata Nui.
Later discovered by The Shadowed One, Dark Elemental Energy crystals were soon harvested by Dark Hunters and used for their intended purpose of counteracting the Elemental Powers of Toa. Sharing this resource with the Brotherhood of Makuta, both organizations came to use force-fields constructed from Dark Elemental Energy to imprison Turaga and Matoran.
Existing also in the Second Generation continuum, Dark Elemental Energy occurs naturally in the Shadow Realm, making it nigh impossible to harness Elemental Powers in such an environment. On Okoto, Dark Elemental Energy crystals can be found sparingly, with most of the crystals believed to have been exhausted when conjuring this Elemental Beasts.
