Ta-Matoran are the Matoran of Fire.

Abilities and Traits

All Ta-Matoran have inactive Fire powers, to the extent that they can resist extreme heat. These can be activated in the case of transformation into a Toa.[citation needed]

The Ta-Matoran are known for their grasp of tactics, leading them to be the first tribe to establish a firm fighting force, the Ta-Koro Guard, on Mata Nui. On Metru Nui, Ta-Matoran were primarily mask makers and worked in foundries or were Protodermis reclamation workers.[MN-CoL]

The Ta-Matoran of Ta-Koro value Duty the most out of the Three Virtues, from which they derive their Principle of Courage and the Skill of Strength. All Ta-Matoran have been said to be mathematicians at heart, which makes jobs where exact proportions are needed relatively easy.[BA10]

Identifiable physical attributes of Ta-Matoran include red, orange, yellow, and black Kanohi and armor. They are also one of the many male Matoran types.
