"Rather, he felt the need for a vision of hope, something that spoke of better tomorrows and not the tragedies of today."

Angonce is a Great Being with great compassion for the Agori and Matoran alike.


Angonce once ruled the planet of Spherus Magna with his fellow Great Beings. In a desire to spend more time creating, the Great Beings created the Element Lords, who soon took control of the planet.[3] The Core War eventually incited over the discovery of Energized Protodermis, and Angonce and the Great Beings acquired some of the substance for their experiments. Despite the diplomatic efforts of the Great Beings, the war continued to rage.[4] Angonce, after running tests, discovered that the planet was doomed to be destroyed.[5]

The Great Beings then initiated the construction of Mata Nui and the Matoran Universe in response. Angonce did not participate in the simultaneous construction of the baterra, preferring to focus on the hope that Mata Nui represented.[6] He also worked on the forging of the Kanohi Ignika, the legendary Mask of Life, which was to act as a failsafe in case the universe did not act according to their plan.[7]

He later named Mata Nui after the Matoran translation of "Great Spirit" that his fellow Great Being Heremus had said that Mata Nui embodied.[6]

Spherus Magna eventually shattered due to the damage, and the majority of the Great Beings fled. It was rumored that Angonce chose not to follow the rest of his species and remained behind to continue observing the Agori.[8]

Angonce discovered the restoration of Spherus Magna using ancient equipment, and realized that they would come searching for the Great Beings, which he knew would be dangerous for them. Remembering their creation designed to eliminate Toa, the Marendar, Angonce attempted to prevent it from escaping its prison on Bara Magna,[9] but was too late.[10]

Alternate Universes

The Melding Alternate Universe

In an alternate universe, Angonce was one of six Great Beings to whom the Matoran Mazeka and Vultraz were presented.[11] Alarmed by his nature as a Shadow Matoran, the Great Beings chose to keep Vultraz for experimentation, and permitted Mazeka to return to his universe with any being of his choice from theirs; he chose that reality's Teridax.[12]

Abilities and Traits

Like all other Great Beings, Angonce has a passion for creating. Angonce is very morally motivated, and feels obligated to rectify the mistakes his creations caused.

Angonce was known to be very interested in the Agori society.[8]


  • All female Skrall believed they were born with mental powers, and desired to meet Angonce, since they believed he enhanced one sister's powers to an extreme degree, to receive the same treatment.[8] While Angonce did enhance one's powers, it was Annona who gave them their powers to eliminate the male Skrall.[13][14]
  • In Journey's End, Angonce was described as having dark-colored eyes.[5]
