"Miserable, ill-smelling and ill-tempered creatures, Frostelus were happy to invade your territory but hated it when you invaded theirs."
— Narrator, Legacy of Evil

Skabelon:SapientSpecies Frostelus are a mysterious species of intelligent beings.


6,000 years before the Great Cataclysm, a large group of Frostelus launched an attack against a group of Toa tasked with guarding the Makoki Stone and stationed at a fortress. When constructing the fortress, the Toa had failed to examine the nearby icebergs which the beings used as camouflage and armor, and so did not realize that they viewed the territory as being theirs. The Frostelus killed all of the Toa in the fortress except for the young Lhikan.[1]

Two of the Toa Hagah, Norik and Iruini, also ran into some Frostelus during their travels, but they managed to defeat them by combining their Elemental Powers to create a cyclone of molten lava.Skabelon:ComicCitation

Immediately following the Great Cataclysm, a group of icebergs appeared to the north of Metru Nui.Skabelon:ComicCitation 1,000 years later, after the Matoran repopulated the city, this group made repeated attempts to invade, but Toa Takanuva battled them and drove them off.[2]

The Dark Hunters saw the Frostelus as being useful allies, and the Shadowed One sent Subterranean to discuss an alliance with them.[3] However, these negotiations went poorly.[4]

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, many Frostelus emigrated from the Matoran Universe to Spherus Magna.

Alternate Universes[]

The Kingdom Alternate Universe[]

In this alternate universe, the Frostelus were among the many beings that fled to the island of Mata Nui when the Great Spirit died. They made their home in the region of Ko-Wahi with the Ko-Matoran.Skabelon:OnlineCitation

Abilities and Traits[]

Frostelus are creatures that appear to be somewhere between a Rahi and a Toa,Skabelon:ComicCitation housed within larger suits of armor.Skabelon:CN Their armor has both two legs and four arms; one pair of arms ends in sharp claws, whereas the other pair ends in large hook-like appendages. They have the ability to launch dual Rhotuka spinners from their shoulders. As a result of their intelligence and sapience, the powers of their spinners vary between individuals.[5] The Frostelus are also known to travel within icebergs, which serve as homes and protection for the Frostelus as they float across the sea.[2]

Frostelus are fiercely territorial, and are not afraid to attack in large numbers. Their attacks are devastating, and even Toa have fallen before them.[1]
