These Rahi appeared in types possessing powers of the six main elements: Fire, Water, Earth, Stone, Ice, and Air Burnak. A Protodermis Burnak is also known to exist. There was also another type; Guardian Burnak that were trained by the Piraka to guard their Stronghold. Piruk also owned a Desert Burnak.
The respective types of Burnak were originally created by the Makuta species using a combination of liquid protodermis and viruses. When Voya Nui was broken off from the rest of the Matoran Universe during the Great Cataclysm, Burnak were on it and survived the ascent. It is unknown what happened to the Burnak when Voya Nui returned to its original position on the Southern Continent. Additionally, it is unknown how many Burnak, if any, escaped to Spherus Magna after the death of Makuta Teridax.
