Toa of Gravity was a title given to Toa who wielded the Element of Gravity. Toa of Gravity were typically transformed from a Ba-Matoran. Should a Toa of Gravity fulfill his Destiny, he would be given the option of sacrificing his Toa Power, becoming a Turaga of Gravity. If a Toa of any element were to lose their Kanohi, their Elemental Power would be halved and their overall strength greatly weakened.


A Toa of Gravity's Elemental power gave them near-perfect command over the forces of gravity itself. As such, at a basic level they could create and control gravitational force around an object or being. Examples of this included weakening gravity to levitate themselves or others, eliminating gravity around a target (making them fly into the atmosphere), or increasing gravity in an area to either crush an object or hold an enemy flat against the ground. Additionally, Toa of Gravity were highly resistant to extreme gravitic pressure, which meant that they could walk on a planet with incomprehensible mass unassisted.

Toa of Gravity had few weaknesses, but unlike almost all other types of Toa, they could not absorb their own element. Because of this, low-gravity environments would have posed a problem to them, as they would be forced to rely entirely on their own Elemental Energy reserves.

They possessed all these abilities on a vastly greater level than a Turaga of Gravity, or a Ba-Matoran.

Personality and Traits[]

Toa of Gravity usually wore varying shades of purple armor, with black as a secondary color. All Toa of Gravity were male.


Various Toa of Gravity came into being using Toa Stones throughout the history of the Matoran Universe, and at one point there were hundreds of Toa in the universe simultaneously, a handful of them Toa of Gravity. But after the Great Cataclysm, their numbers began to dwindle, and only a few were still alive by the time of the Battle of Bara Magna.

Toa of Gravity were incredibly rare in the Matoran Universe, even before the reformation of Spherus Magna.

Toa Cordak[]

Very early in the Matoran Universe's history, an unnamed Toa of Gravity, who started life as a Ba-Matoran, was a member of the Toa Cordak, the original Toa Team. He wore an unknown Kanohi, and died in battle against a horde of Zyglak, alongside the majority of his allies.

Unknown Toa of Gravity[]

Shortly after Mata Nui fell asleep, a Toa of Gravity fought the Dark Hunter Lariska while on one of her missions. She practiced using Levitation Kanoka to get used to a lack of gravity, thus giving her experience on how to deal with the Toa, whose standard defense to an attack was to erase gravity around his attacker. After his death, he was then sent to the red star and revived. However, the star was not working and he remains trapped there.

Unnamed Toa of Gravity[]

During an unspecified time period, a Ba-Matoran was transformed into a Toa of Gravity, and later joined the Toa Team led by Varian. Much later, Varian was captured by Dark Hunters and placed into stasis by the "Shadowed One", leaving this Toa of Gravity's ultimate fate unknown.


After Teridax's death, the remaining Toa of Gravity evacuated onto Spherus Magna, where they aided in the construction effort to build new homes for the refugees of the Matoran Universe.
