Later during the event in the 2005 storyline, the Visorak along with their leaders; Sidorak and Roodaka were summoned by Makuta Teridax, who instructed them to conquer Metru Nui, which they suceeded. However, the Visorak were eventually defeated by the Toa Hordika and Rahaga along with their ally, Keetongu and were then disbanded following Sidorak's death until they were once again reformed by the Brotherhood to assist them in the quest of conquering the Matoran Universe.
The Visorak were once created by Chirox in the island of Destral following the Brotherhood of Makuta's corruption. After he named them, the Visorak created their own language, attributing the meanings; "stealers of life" and "poisonous scourge" to the species' names. Following their creation, the Visorak were then unleashed on Tobduk's island to test their ability.
