Gravity was a fundamental Element involving pressure manipulation in the Matoran Universe and Spherus Magna. It was one of the rarest of all elements, and it was used by only a small number of Toa, Turaga and Matoran.

Toa of Gravity were extremely powerful, wielding near-perfect control over the element, while a Ba-Matoran was simply more resistant to intense pressure. Turaga of Gravity had powers somewhere in the middle.

All users of this element had a passive resistance to gravity extremes, protecting them from the crushing depths of an ocean, or other sources of immense pressure.


  • Levitating objects.
  • Increasing gravity.
  • Manipulating gravity to fly.
  • Unleashing a Gravity Nova Blast. (Toa-exclusive)
  • Creating a black hole.
  • Changing gravity to an extent which allows the user to walk sideways or upside-down on solid surfaces.


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.
