1) So if any toa can infuse things with elemental energy, what about makuta? Can they charge a defensive structure with shadow or light?
2) Same question on skakdi?
3) Is there any known upper limit on how much one can charge a rhotuka?
4) Can the makuta power of quick healing heal normally irreparable wounds?
5) If someone used a disk of fusion on one or more kaitas, what would happen? Would the kaitas shatter, possibly disrupting the fusion?

I think this got buried.

3. Well, it seems that it can grant any dream. Should a Matoran dream of being a Toa, it would happen. In addition, could the power be used theoretically to bring Matoro back to life? Could the Ignika do it?

The wiki says the golden-skinned being can't resurrect the dead. However, that doesn't necessarily mean it can't make a Matoran into a Toa. However, it would need to be able to override destiny.

Hey Greg, What is the difference between a the powers of a Rahkshi of Chain Lightning and a Rahkshi of Electricity?

Why is the Mask Of Charisma not considered an immoral mask?
It forces the target to agree with the user, overriding the target's will.
BS01 describes it as: "The Mask of Charisma is a Kanohi that allows its user to subtly alter the perception of one or more targets, changing how they view the world until they agree with the user's views and serve their cause."
That sounds more like inline with Makuta than OoMN. Can the mask of Charisma force a target to do something that they don't want? Like kill someone?
Do Toa (and other MU beings) have hydraulic systems inside them? If they do, is there enough water present for a Ga-Toa to be able to restrict and control their movements? If not, do they still have enough water inside of them in liquid form for a Ga-Toa to work with?

1:would the silver Krana Kal of the destroyed bohrok Kal retain the memories of the former bohrok kal if they were placed in new bodies?
2a:if a Makuta were to create a Matoran, would they use the same process as Rahi making or something similar to the matoran making machine
2b: if so could they give Matoran toa energy upon birth?
3:did some of your story ideas from bionicle take inspiration from D.C. comics?

No details were ever created on how their internal mechanical systems work. For all I know, it could be a system that doesn't even exist on Earth.

A few points:
- Normally, masks like this -- something that stops short of outright Mind Control -- cannot make a user do something that violates their moral code. If there is a pre-existing moral objection, then the command simply won't take.
- As far as the OOMN goes, the OOMN is to the Toa what the CIA is to your local police department. The OOMN does all sorts of things that skirt the line between good and bad, because it's their job to do the things Toa can't and won't do.
- I certainly think you can make an argument on the morality of this mask. On the other hand, couldn't it be used to, say, stop a riot? Is its use really that different from what a great speaker can do in our world? I am not asserting it is a perfect and wonderful mask, but I think there is room for debate.

If you want to hit multiple targets with electricity who are standing, say, 10 feet apart, you need to either fire two blasts, or fire one really big one that is probably going to weaken you for a bit. With chain lighting, you fire one normal blast, it hits Target A and then leaps on its own to hit Target B.

4) Most of them aren't all there at this point anyway. Those who are would most likely be trying to figure out how to repair the system so they could get out.
5) I could give you a lame answer on this, but the truth is, the idea of the Matoran rebuilding themselves came from the fact that the set designs had changed. Our initial feeling was simply that the additional material for parts could have been brought from Metru Nui, and the organic tissue would grow as it needed to on its own.
6) They do not have other meanings that I am aware of.
7) "Could", yes, but we had no plans to introduce more Toa of Light into the story.
8) Not something I am going to get into, as it would wind up provoking religious discussion which is not allowed here.

1. Were the Great Beings Humanoid?
2. Were they fully organic?
3. Were the mammals?

In my opinion, yes, yes, and yes

Just one question this time: since the Ignika was sentient, is it safe to assume that the Vahi and Mask of Creation were too, or was the Kanohi's sentience a product of its control over Life?
