Air was an essential-to-life Elemental Power involving the wind, the sky, and the essence of faith in the Matoran Universe and Spherus Magna. This was one of the most common elements, and was used frequently by Toa, Turaga and Matoran.

Toa of Air had near-perfect control of the element, while a Le-Matoran was simply more agile than most. Turaga of Air had powers somewhere in the middle.

All users of this element were passively quicker and more agile than other beings.

With all wielding different elements, six Toa could combine their powers to create a Protodermis Cage, capable of sealing away powerful beings, such as the likes of Makuta Teridax, or the Bahrag Queens. Freeing trapped entities required a shard of the prison to be charged with the same elemental powers used to construct it. 

Beings other than Toa could not combine their powers at all, making them the only ones able to do so.
