Ice was a preservative Elemental Power involving the essence of peace in the Matoran Universe and Spherus Magna. This was one of the most common elements, frequently used by Toa, Turaga, and Matoran.

Toa of Ice had almost perfect control of the element, while a Ko-Matoran was simply resistant to extreme-cold environments. Turaga of Ice had powers somewhere in the middle.

All users of this element were passively more resistant to cold, and weaker against heat than other beings.

    • Creating concentrated beams of ice/snow/cold.
  • Controlling ice/snow.

  • "Possessing" ice. - Element Lord-exclusive
  • Lowering air temperature
  • Freezing anything (objects, enemies, etc.)


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.

  • When combined with the Element of Fire, it could be used to instantaneously form a seal.
  • When combined with the Element of Fire, it can also make Water, which cannot be controlled by the Ice-wielder.
