The Fa-Matoran[2] are the Matoran of Magnetism.

Abilities and Traits

All Fa-Matoran have innate powers of Magnetism, which they gain full access to upon becoming Toa. The Matoran themselves can manifest this power to the extent that they have a better sense of direction than other Matoran as well as an internal compass.[3] Due to this ability, Fa-Matoran often excel as Navigators.[4] Fa-Matoran prefer to live near magnetically-attuned regions, such as magnetic poles or places with strong magnetic fields.[1]

Physical attributes of Fa-Matoran include gunmetal gray and black armor and Kanohi. They are also one of the many male Matoran types.

Known Fa-Matoran


  • As a result of the danger that Toa of Magnetism posed to Makuta, most known Toa of Magnetism were killed.[6] Until it was disbanded, the Brotherhood of Makuta kept a careful watch over the Fa-Matoran.[citation needed]
  • The elemental prefix Fa- was derived from the surname of Michael Faraday, a scientist known for his work in the field of electromagnetism.[2]
