"Every elder, every villager, is like a single stone... and together, you build a wall so mighty no Bohrok could ever hope to bring it down! With Vakama, Jala, and the rest of you guarding Ta-Koro, our village will stand."
Toa Mata Tahu, To Trap a Tahnok

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. The Ta-Matoran are known for their grasp of tactics, leading them to be the first ones 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.

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.

Identifiable physical attributes of Ta-Matoran include red, orange, yellow, and black Kanohi and armor. All Ta-Matoran are male.
