8976 Metus is a BIONICLE set released in January 2009. It contains Metus, a treacherous Agori who used to belong to the ice tribe in Iconox.
The set consists of a single model, that of an Agori named Metus. It consists of a number of pieces in the BIONICLE style. Metus includes a pair of white feet, two white bent legs, and a large blue body piece. His right arm is the same piece as his legs, and his left arm is different, and trans-blue. Metus wields a short sword in his right hand, and a larg,e snowflake-shaped shield in the other. His head consists of a trans-blue Glatorian-style head, with a white helmet on top.
After the Shattering, in which the world of Spherus Magna was blown apart, Metus, like the other Agori stuck on the Bara Magna section, was forced to scavenge and steal for a living. During this time, and perhaps even before, Metus developed a fast-talking, conniving, trickster personality. A hundred thousand years later, Mata Nui, in the Mask of Life, returned to the ravaged desert world. Metus was the first being to meet Mata Nui, and subsequently took him to Vulcanus, an Agori city where a gladiator match between 8985 Ackar and Strakk. Metus, after seeing that Mata Nui would make a good Glatorian fighter for a village, attempted to draft Mata Nui into his service. Mata Nui, however, refused.
Later, Metus betrayed Mata Nui and all of the Glatorian and Agori after he he attempted a power grab of two of the tribes of Agori living on Bara Magna. He was subsequently changed into a snake, although this has since been reversed.
