Even as Icarax gloats over his triumph, I am summoning every last bit of moisture from the air for hundreds of kios around. I am merging it together, bending it to my will, preparing to unleash all my elemental power in one single explosion of force. And I do ... and I hope to the Great Beings I never will again. A wall of water a thousand feet high crashes into the realm of Karzahni, shattering buildings, leveling everything and everyone in its path.

Water was a tranquil, yet potentially devastating Elemental Power involving the essence of purity in the Matoran Universe and Spherus Magna. This was one of the most common elements, and was used frequently by Toa, Turaga, and Matoran.

Toa of Water had near-perfect control of the element, while a Ga-Matoran simply had the ability to stay underwater much longer than others. Turaga of Water had powers somewhere in the middle.

All users of this element were passively able to stay underwater for much longer than other beings.

With all wielding different elements, six Toa could combine their powers to create a Protodermis Cage, capable of sealing away powerful beings, such as the likes of Makuta Teridax, or the Bahrag Queens. Freeing trapped entities required a shard of the prison to be charged with the same elemental powers used to construct it. 

Beings other than Toa could not combine their powers at all, making them the only ones able to do so.
