The Claws were the hands of Toa Mata Onua, which he used as a Toa Tool.[1][2][3][4] Onua used the Claws to quickly dig tunnels throughout the underground of Mata Nui, to channel his Earth power, and also as weapons in melee combat.

When Onua transformed into a Toa Nuva by Energized Protodermis, the Claws became a pair of Quake Breakers.
