The game very loosely follows the LEGO Bionicle storylines of 2001, 2002 and 2003. The Toa must defend the island of Mata Nui against the evil Makuta's minions. At the end, a simple villager joins their ranks to battle Makuta himself.

Since the game acted as a promotional tie-in to the movie Bionicle: Mask of Light
(2003), a lot of the game's dialogue has been inspired by lines that from the movie. For example, in both the movie and game, Tahu sarcastically asks the Chronicle if he's been doing some sightseeing, Pohatu greets his sister with "Always a pleasure, Gali", Lewa talks about the drums of his village carrying a message, and so on.

The plural of Matoran is constantly spelled as "Matorans", even though technically, the name is not supposed to have a pluralized form in English, so it should simply be "Matoran". See more
