The Kanohi Avohkii, the Great Mask of Light

Av- was a Matoran prefix meaning "light". When used, it denoted that the object of its reference was associated with light and/or the Element of Light in particular. The prefix could also be incorporated into names.



  • "Av-" is the only Elemental prefix to end in a consonant; all the other prefixes end in vowels.
  • The prefix "Av-" was retroactively derived from "Avohkii," the name of the Mask of Light.
