Toa of Magnetism was a title given to Toa who wielded the Element of Magnetism. Toa of Magnetism were typically transformed from a Fa-Matoran. Should a Toa of Magnetism fulfill his destiny, he would be given the option of sacrificing his Toa Power, becoming a Turaga of Magnetism.

If a Toa of any element were to lose their Kanohi, their Elemental powers would be halved, and their overall strength greatly weakened.


A Toa of Magnetism's Elemental power gave them near-perfect command over magnetic forces. As such, at a basic level they could create, control, and absorb magnetic fields. Examples of this included generating magnetic force blasts, using magnetism to fly, controlling existing magnetic fields, and using magnetism to manipulate certain types of metal. Toa of Magnetism were also capable of perfect directional navigation, thanks to their ability to sense the magnetic poles of Aqua Magna.

Due to the nature of their elemental abilities, attacks made by a Toa of Magnetism were impossible to stop completely.

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

Personality and Traits[]

Toa of Magnetism usually wore armor that was gunmetal grey, with black or light grey as a secondary color.

All Toa of Magnetism were male.


Various Toa of Magnetism 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, some of them Toa of Magnetism. But after the Great Cataclysm, their numbers began to dwindle, and only a handful were still alive by the time of the Battle of Bara Magna.

Yet the Great Cataclysm was not the only thing to effect their numbers; Because of their ability to control and tear apart ferromagnetic metals, many Toa of Magnetism were hunted down and killed by the Brotherhood of Makuta, due to their ability to rip open a Makuta's armor, allowing the antidermis to seep out, and dissipate.

Toa of Magnetism were very rare in the Matoran Universe, even before the reformation of Spherus Magna.


Jovan was once a Fa-Matoran, very early in the Matoran Universe's history, and was later transformed into one of the first Toa of Magnetism. After the disbanding of the Hand of Artakha, Jovan formed one of the first Toa Teams, believing that they would become the Hand's eventual replacement.

At some point during his time as a Toa, Jovan met Lesovikk, a Toa of Air, and gave him combat lessons.

Shortly after the Great Disruption left Mata Nui close to death, Jovan and his team retrieved the Ignika from the Southern Continent, and travelled to Karda Nui in order to heal the Great Spirit. One of their number reluctantly donned the mask, restoring Mata Nui's lifeforce in the process. With that done, Jovan and his remaining teammates teleported out of the universe core by way of another member's Kanohi Olmak.

Feeling that their collective destinies were complete, Jovan's team disbanded, and the remaining members gave up their Toa Power, becoming Turaga. For the next 78,000 years Jovan served as the elder of an area home to hundreds of Karzahni's misshapen Matoran workers. However, during the Great Cataclysm, Jovan was killed while aiding his charges in their escape from the rapidly deteriorating continent.

He wore a Great Mask of Flight as a Toa, and later, a Noble version as a Turaga.


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