"Now the Toa of Ice's mask was glowing as well. Suddenly, great stones tore lose from one wall of the prison cell. The rocks flew rapidly across the room to form a wall between Onewa and Whenua."
— Narrator, Legends of Metru Nui

The Kanohi Matatu is the Mask of Telekinesis. It allows its user to move targets within their range of view by utilizing the power of thought and lets them project Psionic force. This power grants the user the ability to perform other such feats like generating telekinetic attacks. The only difference between the Great and Noble versions is the power's duration and the mental strength afforded by the mask.

Kanohi Matatu were made from Teleport and Shrink Kanoka on Metru Nui.[1]

  • Nuju's mask had a telescopic and heat-sensing eyepiece installed in it by Vakama.[2] It continued to function even while Nuju was a Toa Hordika. The eyepiece, however, disappeared when Nuju became a Turaga. It was most likely lost due to damage to the mask.[OGD]
