Earth Claws
Weapon Information
FunctionChanneling Elemental energy, melee combat, digging
User(s)Toa Mata Onua (formerly)
StatusTransformed into Quake Breakers
This page is about the Toa Tool used by Onua . You may be looking for the Xian Weapon, the Earth Claw instead.

The Earth Claws were weapons wielded by Toa Mata Onua. They helped him dig, pick up large boulders, etc. They were part of his hands, so he could not remove them. Onua could also channel his earth powers through them. The Earth claws became Quake Breakers after being transformed by Energized Protodermis.

Set Information[]

  • The Earth Claws were first included in the Onua Mata set 2001.
  • The pieces used for them were later included in many other sets.
  • They have been available in six colors: Orange, yellow-green, black, silver and white.


  • In BIONICLE Heroes, the claws are Nuparu's default weapon. They fire out grenade-like blasts that explode after a few seconds, but can be detonated manually. They could be upgraded into Toa Whenua's Earthshock Drills.
  • A foam version of Onua's Earth Claws was released in 2003 and can be only found in certain Lego outlets (not stores) back then.
