Destiny was one of the Three Virtues given to the Matoran by Mata Nui. It was the third one, and represented the being's purpose in life, the final goal. When a Toa completed their destiny, they could opt to become a Turaga or remain a Toa. Mata Nui decided a being's destiny, and the Great Beings decided his. Energized Protodermis could mutate or destroy a being depending on their destiny.

Ko-Koro derived their Principle of Peace from Destiny and often used a lot of time to meditate on it and study it. Especially the Architect had a special job for this.
