"The temperature suddenly dropped all around. The next moment Kapura was locked in a foot-thick shell of ice from his neck down. The Matoran cried out from the intense cold. Takanuva looked up only to see Tahu and Kopaka standing nearby, frost still drifting from the sword of the Toa of Ice."

Matoran Universe

In the Matoran Universe, Ice is often represented by the Matoran prefix Ko- as well as the colors white and gray. Here, the only naturally occurring ice was solid Ice-like Protodermis. Despite this, these beings are able to control the ice of Spherus Magna, because the substances are alike in composition and, in liquid form, behave similarly in the life processes of Matoran Universe denizens. Wielders of this Element are typically antisocial.


  • Ko-Matoran represent the Element of Ice. Ko-Matoran also contain a very minuscule amount of Elemental Ice Energy, to the extent that they are resistant to ice and cold. All Matoran, Toa, and Turaga of Ice are male.
  • Toa of Ice possess the Elemental Power of Ice, allowing them to create, control and absorb ice and snow. Their only real limitation is that when they run out of Elemental Ice Energy, they must wait for it to recharge.
  • Turaga of Ice possess small traces of Elemental Ice Energy.


  • Kohrak have a limited range of Ice powers.
  • Some Fohrok had a limited range of Ice powers.
  • The Bahrag have a wider range of Ice powers than the Kohrak.


  • One of the First Rahi can shoot Ice beams from its eyes.
  • Ice Gafna can emit pulses of elemental Ice energy from their tails.
  • Ice Burnak can emit pulses of elemental Ice energy.


  • Skakdi of Ice can only access their power if they work with another Skakdi, or if they carry a weapon (such as Thok's Ice Gun) that allows them to focus their Ice power individually.

  • When combined with the Elemental Power of Fire, it can be used to instantaneously make a seal.
  • When combined with the Elemental Power of Water, it can be used to create a hailstorm.
  • Beings other than Toa and the Krahka cannot combine powers of any sort to create a Protodermis cage. As long as each wields a different Element, and Light and Shadow are not included at the same time, any six Toa can create a Protodermis cage.
