Takoro rahi

A Hoto and a Hikaki

The Hoto was a fire insect that was native to mainly Ta-Metru and Ta-Wahi.


Hoto bugs were taken as pests on Mata Nui and Metru Nui as it was shown as one of the reasons that Toa Hagah Iruini wanted to leave his fellow Toa was because he thought his talents were wasted by not taking care of threats such as a Hoto bug invasion.

They later migrated to Spherus Magna from the Matoran Universe.

Abilities and Traits

Hotos' bodies could give off enough heat to tunnel through the ground and even some buildings.

  • Hotos were supposed to appear in the Voya Nui Online Game, but did not. However, to the right there is a picture of it as it would look like in the game.
