The Solis Magna System was the solar system in which The BIONICLE took place. The sun of the solar system is called Solis Magna. It was located in the known Galactic Universe.


100,000 years ago, Spherus Magna faced a cataclysmic event called the Shattering that divided the planet into three pieces (referred to as Bara Magna, Aqua Magna, and Bota Magna) and began orbiting Solis Magna.

The Great Spirit Mata Nui, who controlled a giant robot, departed from Sperus Magna before the Shattering on a long journey observing the inhabited planets of the universe to witness anlien societies in order to fulfill his mission to heal the fractured planet. Upon returning from his journey to complete his mission, the Makuta Teridax, led the Brotherhood of Makuta in a rebellion against him and released a virus that rendered Mata Nui into comatose after three hundred years. This caused his body to shut down, and drawn into Aqua Magna gravity, where it crashed on the ocean surface.

When Teridax took over the robot and the Matoran Universe housing inside, he sealed Mata Nui's spirit inside the Kanohi Ignika and expelled it out of the mechanical body into Solias Magna System, where it flew onto the planet Bara Magna. Using the Red Star, Teridax later departed from Aqua Magna to begin a conquest of the known universe, after he destroys Mata Nui once and for all on Bara Magna. While in transit to Bara Magna, he teleported Helryx, Lewa, Artakha, Axonn, Brutaka, Miserix, Tuyet, Hafu, and Kapura out of his body and into the void of space, but Vezon taken them to Bota Magna.

When Teridax arrived onto Bara Magna, he began to fight Mata Nui, who'd taken over another ancient robot body. During the Battle, Mata Nui redirected a bleast of gravity from Teridax at Aqua Magna and Bota Magna, drawing them into the gravitational field of Bara Magna; the two celestrial body then fell towards the planet and Mata Nui used the last of his power to restore it back to life soon after the battles conclusion (thus fulfilling his true goal assigned by the Great Beings so long ago).

Known Planets[]

Following is a list of the known planets in the BIONICLE Solar System.

  • Spherus Magna - The planet of the Great Beings, containing the original source of Energized Protodermis in its core. During the Shattering, the planet was split into three parts: Bara Magna, Bota Magna and Aqua Magna. It is now re-fused.
    • Aqua Magna - A moon of Bara Magna, once the Great Sea on Spherus Magna. When Mata Nui fell asleep, he fell here. It was completely covered by water except for the island of Mata Nui (Location) and Voya Nui. When Mata Nui was destroyed and Voya Nui fell back into place, the planet became bare again. It orbited Bara Magna and broke off from Spherus Magna at the end of the Core War. It is now part of the planet Spherus Magna again.
    • Bara Magna - A desert planet and the largest of the three pieces of Spherus Magna. It was the planet which the Kanohi Ignika, with Mata Nui's spirit trapped inside, was cast onto. Mata Nui then fused Bara Magna, Bota Magna, and Aqua Magna together to recreate Spherus Magna.
    • Bota Magna - A jungle planet that orbited Bara Magna. It broke off from Spherus Magna at the end of the Core War. The planet was inhabited by villagers and beasts. It is now part of the planet Spherus Magna.



  • Mata Nui explored the Solar System many years ago and crashed onto Aqua Magna when he was infected with a virus.
  • With the way Bara Magna and it's former moons were aligned and the position and shape of the nebulae surrounding them, the system takes on the shape of the symbol of the Three Virtues.
