Hoto are fiery insects that give off waves of Heat.


The Hoto species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.[MGttU, p. 1]

The Toa Hagah were once called upon to deal with a Hoto invasion, much to the disgruntlement of Toa Iruini, who considered this errand a waste of his talents.[citation needed]

Hoto bugs took up residence in Metru Nui, and the Ta-Wahi region of Mata Nui after the Great Cataclysm. After 1,000 years, the Mata Nui population of Hoto returned to Metru Nui with the Matoran.

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, many Hoto emigrated from the Matoran Universe to Spherus Magna.[1]

Abilities and Traits

The bodies of Hoto can give off Heat intense enough to allow them to tunnel through rock and earth, and even some buildings.[BEU, p. 45]

Set Information

The Hoto was released as part of the 10023 Bionicle Master Builder set. It used 40 of the set's 102 pieces.


  • The Hoto were originally planned to make an appearance in the Voya Nui Online Game, but did not. There is still a picture of them as they would have appeared.
