8549 Tarakava is a BIONICLE Rahi set released in 2001. It contains two Tarakava; one dark turquoise with a Kanohi Kakama, and one blue with a Kanohi Pakari. Each have two levers on the back to thrust the arms forward in a punching motion. They can be combined to make a Tarakava-Nui.

Background[edit]

In the BIONICLE Universe, Tarakava were fierce underwater predators. They were powerful, and extremely fast in the water, but were easy to trick, being unintelligent Rahi. Makuta controlled the Tarakava on the Island of Mata Nui by infecting their Kanohi, but these had since been removed. There was also a race of Tarakava, known as the Sand Tarakava, that was smaller and less dangerous than the common Tarakava.
