In 100,080 CMT, Tarnok was in Vulcanus when he was attacked by Kakamu, whose antidermis form was in danger of dissipating unless he found a new body to inhabit. Kakamu realized that he only had about an hour left until his antidermis dissipated completely, so he was forced to kill Tarnok and fashion his body into a vehicle suitable for Makuta by stripping off his flesh and modifying his metal skeleton to prevent his antidermis from leaking out. Now inhabiting what remained of Tarnok's body, Kakamu began rounding up the inhabitants of Vulcanus into an army, but was killed again when Blackout teleported unstable hadrium into the core of Bara Magna.
Bara Magna was recreated by Yon and the Architect in 150,080 CMT and all of its inhabitants who were alive at the time of its destruction were revived. Tarnok was dead at the time, so he was not resurrected.
- Tarnok (revision on 19:37, Mar 03, 2012): "Tarnok was a Glatorian employed by the Fire Tribe, along with Sento. Tratus was his Agori partner in the arena matches. He wielded a Fire Mace and a Thornax Launcher. He was later killed by Kakamu, so he could take over Tarnok's body. He later managed to "break it into smaller pieces" so it was loose enough to shapeshift with, thus making it a suitable body for a Makuta."
- Kakamu (OU) (revision on 17:15, Mar 24, 2013): "After realizing that he only had an hour until his energy dissipated, [Kakamu] headed for Vulcanus. There he killed a Glatorian, Tarnok, possessed his body, and began rounding up the inhabitants of Vulcanus in order to create an army. [...] Some time later, Blackout once again arrived, and placed a quantity of unstable hadrium in Bara Magna's core, causing it to explode. Kakamu perished in the blast, but not before Tratus managed to get hold of some of his antidermis."
