Nidhiki is the major antagonist that appeared in the BIONICLE franchise. He is the former member of the Toa Mangai before betraying them and joined the Dark Hunters. He was later mutated into a spider-like insectoid and became the partner of Krekka. He also served as one of the secondary antagonists alongside Krekka in the Metru Nui arc.
He was voiced by Paul Dobson in the animated show.
Nidhiki was a Toa at one point who defended the city of Metru Nui alongside Toa Lhikan. However, during a war with the Dark Hunters, Nidhiki made a deal with them to betray the Toa in exchange for rulership of Metru Nui.

Later, when Nidhiki attempted to flee Odina, Roodaka, a treacherous Vortixx, mutated Nidhiki, giving him an insectoid appearance. He was killed when Makuta absorbed him.
