"Pohatu lost track of how far they walked. He was beginning to wonder if they would be able to find their way out again, then reminded himself that Kopaka's Mask of X-Ray Vision would show them the way."

The Akaku Nuva is the Kanohi Nuva Mask of X-Ray Vision, created when a destined Kanohi Akaku is dipped in Energized Protodermis. It allows its' user and those nearby to see through objects and illusions. They are fitted with a telescopic lens to give the user(s) enhanced viewing. For some reason, this mask's power cannot pierce certain materials, such as Karda Nui's mist or the Dome of Metru Nui. The only beings able to use this mask are Toa Nuva.

Example UsageEdit

Kopaka used his Akaku Nuva to give himself, Tahu, and Gali X-ray Vision to examine their surroundings for traps during one of their quests for the Kanohi Nuva in Tales of the Masks.
