"Most Onu-Matoran start out as miners, digging for lightstones. You get used to the dark pretty quickly. If you're lucky, you get the opportunity to become an archivist, but even then you are indoors and underground much of the time. These tunnels might be a little extreme, but nothing an Onu-Matoran can't handle."

The Onu-Matoran are the Matoran of Earth.

Abilities and Traits

The Onu-Matoran have inactive Earth powers. Onu-Matoran prefer to look to history for the answers to their questions; on Metru Nui, this placed them in direct conflict with the future-oriented Ko-Matoran, leading to various incidents between the two Metru, including Onu-Matoran undermining Knowledge Towers in their expansion of the Archives, causing the Towers to collapse. On Mata Nui, the Onu-Matoran used the term "surfacers" to refer to anyone from outside their village.

Onu-Matoran normally prefer to stay underground; they are uniquely adept at seeing in darkness, but averse to sunlight, which can easily blind them. They are also among the strongest types of Matoran, and tend to spend much of their time mining. The Onu-Matoran living in Mata Nui and Metru Nui value Duty and Destiny most out of the Three Virtues, from which they derive their Principle of Prosperity, and the Skill of Stamina.

Identifiable physical attributes of Onu-Matoran include primarily black armor, with dark gray, purple, tan, or orange Kanohi and accents, as well as deep green eyes. Onu-Matoran are one of many male Matoran types.
