The Makuta are the main antagonists that appeared in the entire BIONICLE series. These species were originally intended to enforce peace and stability in the universe, until they became corrupted (except for Miserix, who remained neutral in this situation.) and began an oppressive and genocidal campaign that spanned the entire storyline.

Not all Makuta are evil, as for example the Alternate Teridax was the only Makuta to be a force of good because he once purged his inner darkness and became the warrior of light and Krika remained as an anti-villain due of being doubtful about the Plan. Miserix on the other hand, remained neutral due to his hatred towards Makuta Teridax when the latter betrayed him and taking over the Brotherhood of Makuta.


About 100,000 years ago, the Makuta species were created by the Great Spirit on the island in the far south of the Matoran Universe. He formed their bodies out of the Antidermis, the green substance created by the Great Beings. Later, several Makuta formed the Brotherhood of Makuta 

At the same time in the planet of Okoto, Makuta the Mask Hoarder was born alongside his brother, Ekimu and both of them worked as the Mask Makers as both of them are honored by the Okotans for their works.
