Te Fiti becomes Te Ka shortly after her heart is removed by Maui. He flies away from the island, and eventually encounters Te Ka.

How did Te Ka intercept Maui in the middle of the ocean? We learn that Te Ka can't touch the water.

    My instinct is that she erupted from under the ocean. – Valorum Apr 30 '17 at 11:51
  • When Moana reached the island it can be seen that there is ... for lack of the better words let's go with "empty spot". SO I'd say Maui woke Te Ka and did not skedaddled in time to avoid The Slap. Not to mention that Te Ka has substantial reach. – AcePL May 2 '17 at 8:31

    it's also worth mentioning that we only see this interaction as part of Grandmother's storytelling, which at this point may as well be ancient mythology. Remember that in her story, Maui was very much the villain, and the flashback we see certainly portrays him as such as well. It's entirely possible the "real" story didn't happen the way Grandmother narrated it. – Paul L Jun 9 '17 at 19:44
