Turahk was the major antagonist that appeared in the BIONICLE series and the secondary antagonist of the Mask of Life story arc. He was also the leader of the six Rahkshi who were created by Makuta Teridax who tasked them of preventing the approach of the seventh Toa.
He was also known as the Rahkshi of Fear and have the ability to spread fear and panic towards his opponents with the power from his Staff of Fear.
Being the leader of the six Rahkshi, Turahk was a powerful and sinister leader who enjoy spreading fear and chaos to his enemies. However, he was completely loyal to Teridax as he was willing to complete the mission of hunting down Takua to prevent him from fighting the Seventh Toa.
Following the failure of the three Rahkshi: Guurahk, Lerahk and Panrahk, Makuta Teridax decided to use the Kraata to create three new Rahkshi; Turahk, Kurahk and Vorahk. He believed that their powers would eventually destroy the Toa's destiny. After creating them, he sent them to find the two Matoran Jaller and Takua and prevent them from searching for the Toa of Light.
Turahk, Kurahk and Vorahk invaded Onu-Koro and start attacking the Matoran. As they advanced toward Takua, Pohatu and Onua tried to take them down only to be overwhelmed. As Vorahk drained Onua's power, Pohatu was hit by Turahk's fear energy, causing him to be unable to help his friend. When the rest of the Toa Nuva arrived, Tahu was hit by Kurahk's anger power, causing him to turn on his friends. In the ensuing chaos, Turahk went after Takua. But Tahu was frozen in ice by Kopaka, and Onua brought down the cave's ceiling on the Rahkshi, seemingly killing them.
However, Turahk and the other two Rahkshi survived the collision. They joined Guurahk, Lerahk, and Panrahk as they tracked Takua and Jaller to Kini-Nui. They cornered the Matoran just as the Toa Nuva arrived to save them. In the ensuing battle, the Toa Nuva were able to work together as a team and overpower the Rahkshi.
After the other five Rahkshi were defeated, Turahk began chasing after Jaller and Takua before being intercepted by Pewku, an Ussal Crab. But he threw her aside and use his Staff of Fear to trap Takua in a wall of terror. Turahk then used his staff to finish off Takua, only to be intercepted by Jaller, who sacrificed himself by getting himself killed by the energy blast. Turahk was then attacked by Gali and Pohatu, but he defeated them both. He then prepare dto kill Takua but Takua donned the Kanohi Avohkii and transform into Takunuva, the Toa of Light. Turahk then tried to attack Takanuva but was eventually overwhelmed by the latter's power and was incinerated by him with his beam of light, causing his armor and the Kraata to melt into nothingness.
Turahk's body was later used to build the Ussanui, along with the other Rahkshi.
Later, Icarax manages to pick up the remains of Turahk, Lerahk and Kurahk and when he was confronted
Here, Turahk serves as one of the bosses alongside the Titans and his brethren in the game. He was encountered in the Scorched Earth level of Hakann's volcano. Like his appearance in the series, Turahk wields the power of Fear and also carried the Staff of Fear, that resembles his set form rather than the animation version of the staff.
However, the difference of him is that he can be heard yelling and grunting as he had the normal voice compared to his hiss and snarl in the main story.
