The Piraka are a group of six insane skeleton-like beings known as skakdi who went on a killing spree. Although not the direct opposite of Toa (But the Makuta Brotherhood rather), they went undercover as Toa. To a further extent, they are direct opposites of the Beta Trolls. Zaktan leads them. Their chests and weapons tell them what rank they are. Gold meant they were the first/second in line of command, silver meant third/fourth, and gunmetal meant fifth/sixth.

Although they have personalities.
- Zaktan: He is a backstabber, as told by his title and description.
- Vezok: As told by his title and description, he literally acts like a wild animal, like a literal beast.
- Hakann: As told by his title, he enjoys harassing others. As told by his description, he has a tendency to rage out of the blue. (Ironically since Vezok is the blue one)
- Avak: As told by both his title and description simultaneously, he is obsessed with guns....... and shooting innocents at that, hence the lack of charms/charisma. He's also very trigger-happy.
- Thok: As a literal drifter, Thok HATES people. He also hates socializing and prefers to be a lone wolf. He also knows that the Piraka don't trust each other. He gets slightly driven when hanging around too much with others as told by his description.
- Reidak: Despite being actually intelligent and like Zaktan, cunning, he doesn't plan anything ahead of time. Preferred to engage in brute strength.
- It is said they are good rappers, hence their theme song.
- Being polynesian rappers associated with skull imagery, Zaktan has developed a fascination with Giant Isopods.
