"Matoran of Sonics. Very sensitive to noise, so they train themselves from early on to not make any more than is necessary. On the plus side, their hearing is so acute that they are probably listening to every word we say ... and would be even if we were a kio away."
Jerbraz to Mazeka, Brothers In Arms

Skabelon:MatoranType The De-Matoran are the Matoran of Sonics.

Abilities and Traits[]

All De-Matoran have inactive Sonics powers which are activated upon becoming Toa. This power manifests itself in the Matoran by granting them a more acute sense of hearing than any other Matoran, being able to hear sounds that are many kio away. As a result, they train themselves to make as few sounds as possible and generally do not welcome Toa, as Toa often bring conflict and battle, which causes excessive noise. When a De-Matoran is transformed into a Toa, they retain their weakness to loud sounds.

Identifiable physical attributes of De-Matoran include gray and black Kanohi and armor, as well as yellow eyes. De-Matoran are one of the many male Matoran types.
