Now the Toa of Ice's mask was glowing as well. Suddenly, great stones tore lose from one wall of the prison cell. The rocks flew rapidly across the room to form a wall between Onewa and Whenua.

Notable Wearer(s)Nuju

The Kanohi Matatu was the Mask of Telekinesis. It gave its user the power to move targets in their range of sight with their mind and to project force via thought (e.g. a telekinetic kick or punch).[1] However, the user could not lift themselves. The only differences between the Great and Noble versions were the power duration and the mental strength given by the Kanohi.

Matatu were made from Teleport and Shrink Kanoka on Metru Nui.[2]

Example Usages[]

Great: Toa Nuju once used his Matatu to transport Vakama to the top of a cliff to confront Makuta.[3]
Noble: Onua used his Noble Matatu to make multiple rocks fly at an Infected Kanohi-controlled Lewa[4]
