Makuta fish were aquatic Rahi which lived in Ga-Wahi. They were an incredibly ugly breed of fish and could leap from the water to attack larger creatures.[2, 3] They got their name during a battle in an underground cavern with Toa Metru Matau, who noted that the faces of the grotesque fish reminded him of Makuta.
Schools of Makuta fish could be found in Gali's Bay. They would pursue canoes, and their jaws could easily tear the craft to pieces.
Makuta fish were prey for larger creatures, like Takea, but few made any effort to hunt them down. Makuta fish were fast and cunning, with rows and rows of razor-sharp teeth in their mouths. Although any one was powerful enough to survive on its own, they preferred to swim in a school. Together, there was little that could stop them. The [Great Temple Squid] was one creature that preyed upon them.
