"Walking into Le-Metru is like walking into a dense jungle. The ground is littered with tools and wires that can snag your feet."
Metru Nui - City of Legends

Skabelon:Location Le-Metru was the district of Metru Nui representing Air. It is the southern tip of Metru Nui and is the home of the island's transportation Chute System and busy Airships.

Le-Metru was a widespread area of different Moto-Hubs and Protodermis Chutes, making Le-Metru a type of jungle due to the large amount of Hubs in the area. Chutespeak was commonly spoken by the Le-Matoran of Metru Nui. The district's Vahki were the Vorzakh, and due to their reckless attempts to catch criminals, chases usually ended up with a Chute Repair Team headed to the area the Vorzakh were in pursuit.

During the Matoran Civil War that ravaged Metru Nui, Le-Metru's population of Le-Matoran joined with the Po-Matoran and Ko-Matoran.

Around a month before the Great Cataclysm occurred, Toa Lhikan went to the Test Track where Matau was trying a Moto-Sled to give him a Toa Stone to become one of the Toa Metru. However, a month later, Le-Metru was greatly damaged by the great earthquake after the Toa Metru tried to find refuge for the Matoran trapped in the Coliseum. The Toa Metru were washed up on the Le-Metru shore after their craft was hit by a storm. They started to wander through the damaged Metru, and were surprised by its ruined state. While in Le-Metru, they were captured by the Visorak and transformed into Toa Hordika.

Le-Metru was also further damaged when the Tahtorak and Krahka fought a Zivon when Sidorak summoned the latter from the Field of Shadows to get rid of the Toa Hordika who were fighting the Visorak, after Matau was fooled by the Visorak into letting them into a hangar. The Tahtorak, Krahka, and Zivon were soon sent into the field by a Kahgarak, while the Toa Hordika trapped the Visorak in their constructed tower. A few days later, the remaining Visorak were chased away and the Toa claimed the Tower as their base.

About 1,000 years later, the Matoran, Turaga, and Toa Nuva returned to Metru Nui. When Ta-Metru was repaired, Le-Metru was also given priority by the Matoran, in order to get the chutes running again. Several Le-Matoran lived in Po-Metru while their homes in Le-Metru were rebuilt. The Staff of Artakha later repaired what was still damaged of Metru Nui.

Along with the rest of Metru Nui, Le-Metru was greatly damaged when a fragment of Aqua Magna impacted the Core Processor during Teridax's battle with Mata Nui. The surviving Matoran evacuated the Matoran Universe for the surface of Spherus Magna. Later, Le-Metru, along with all other locations in the Matoran Universe, was dismantled.[1][2]
