Toa of Earth was a title given to a Toa who wielded the Element of Earth. Toa of Earth were almost always transformed from a Matoran of Earth, although Onua was an exception. Should a Toa of Earth fulfill his destiny, they were given the option of sacrificing their Toa Power and becoming a Turaga of Earth. If a Toa of Earth lost their Kanohi, their Elemental powers would be halved and their overall strength greatly weakened.


A Toa of Earth's Elemental power gave them near-perfect command over soil. As such, at a basic level they were able to create, control, and absorb earth. Examples of this included creating earthquakes, creating walls of soil, and generating quicksand. Additionally, Toa of Earth were naturally stronger than almost any other Elemental type of Toa and had excellent night vision; they possessed all these abilities on a vastly greater level than a Turaga or Matoran of Earth. As a Toa Nuva of Earth, Onua wielded powers even greater than that of a standard Toa of Earth, and even had a unique ability: the power to set up a delayed Elemental Earth attack.

Personality and TraitsEdit

Toa of Earth were often a "strong but silent" type of personality, saying little but carrying wisdom when they did. They often did not act rashly, rather carefully thinking through the consequences of their actions before carrying them out. However sometimes this prevents them from acting more quickly.

Toa of Earth usually wore armor black and/or dark grey in color and had green eyes. It is possible they could have shades of purple or tan as secondary colors. All Toa of Earth were also male.
