Mahakala is is a wrathful deity and protector of dharma in vajrajana buddhism, he is a Dharmapala. Even though all dharmapalas have horrifying look, they are all bodhisattvas that protect through acting in a wrathful manner. The scary details of the way Dharmapalas look represent the transmutation of the negative and negative mind forms into positive ones. For instance, the Mahakala crown with five skulls points to transmutaion of the five poisons – hatred, desire, ingnorance, jealosy, greed – into five elements of wisdom.
