"Less than fifteen minutes later, they were on the march, over one hundred Toa with Lhikan and Nidhiki in the lead. Clouds of dust kicked up under their armored feet as they traveled well-worn paths through Po-Metru. Each of them had lost a brother or a sister Toa in this war, and all wanted it to end. But not before they had made the Dark Hunters pay in full for their crimes."
— Narrator, Birth of a Dark Hunter

In the Matoran Universe, there arose many other Toa who do not belong to Toa teams or about which fairly little is known. All of these Toa who survived have immigrated to Spherus Magna.

Toa Teams

Jovan's Team

Toa Jovan, leader of his team

Led by Jovan, this team was the first to reach the Kanohi Ignika, traveling during the Great Disruption. They successfully claimed the mask and used it in Karda Nui, healing Mata Nui at the cost of one of the team's members. Several of the survivors became Turaga serving in other places.[OGD]

  • Jovan (transformed) - A Toa of Magnetism who became the lone Turaga of Voya Nui (revived)[15]
  • A male Toa who died while reluctantly using the Kanohi Ignika (deceased)[16]
  • A Toa who wore a Kanohi Olmak[17] and was killed by the Brotherhood of Makuta[18] (revived)[10]
  • A Toa who wore a Kanohi Elda[OGDi]
  • A number of Toa who became Turaga (transformed)[OGD]

Varian and Norik's Team

This team was originally two separate teams, who came together in order to fight off Protocairns and Parakrekks, and stayed together after the battles due to the success of their teamwork. This team would send members off in pairs on missions around the universe. During one such assignment, Norik and Varian encountered the Dark Hunters, who kidnapped Varian but released Norik.[NOGLB] Norik eventually left this team to join the Toa Hagah, and his remaining teammates presented him with metallic armor and weapons as a badge of honor.[18]

  • Norik (formerly)
  • Varian (formerly)
  • A Toa of Gravity - The leader of the team, whom Varian convinced to allow her to participate in more dangerous missions[NOGLB]

Makoki Stone Guard Team

This team was active around 7,000 years ago, defending the Makoki Stone at a Toa Fortress. All but one of the members died in an attack from Frostelus.[19] Karzahni later trapped Lesovikk in an illusion in which the Toa Cordak came to the aid of this team and saved them from utter destruction at the hands of the Frostelus.[DroD, Ch. 9]

  • The leader of the team, who ordered Lhikan to escape and warn others (deceased)[19]
  • A Toa of The Green[20] (deceased)[19]
  • A Toa who used a flail[21] (deceased)[19]
  • A Toa who used a mace[21] (deceased)[19]
  • A small group of Toa who caught and restrained Hakann[22] (deceased)[19]
  • Lhikan - A Toa of Fire who was a rookie at the time and escaped on the orders of the team's leader[19]

Lhikan's Army

During the Toa-Dark Hunter War on Metru Nui, Lhikan commanded more than 300 Toa[23], most of whom are now either deceased or transformed into Turaga.[24] The army was originally comprised of nearly 100 members who arrived in Metru Nui after Naho escaped from the city and begged for help.[25] Another 300 Toa[26] came to Metru Nui at the very end of the war to surround the Dark Hunters and force them to surrender.[8] This is considered the largest Toa team to have ever existed.[citation needed]

Gelu's Team

A team of Toa assembled by the Toa Nuva to locate the Great Beings after the Reformation of Spherus Magna, with Gelu as their guide.

Other Toa Teams

Savage, a Toa Hordika and Dark Hunter
  • Dume's Team - A Toa team Dume once led. Most of these Toa later became Turaga and ruled over various lands, possibly including an island near Metru Nui.[27]
  • Orde's Team - A Toa team to which Orde once belonged. They rescued him from Odina a few days after he was captured helping a dozen Matoran laborers escape.[TYQ, Ch. 1]
  • Savage's Team - A Toa team to which Savage once belonged. Savage was separated from his team and mutated by Hordika Venom. When he returned, his teammates did not recognize him, and attacked him, thinking him to be a dangerous Rahi. In the ensuing conflict, Savage badly hurt his teammates and fled into the wilderness.[28]
  • Spinner's Team - A Toa team who fought mutated Rahkshi while traveling abroad[29] and whom Spinner blamed for his fall into a deep pit.[30]

  • At least six teams of Toa Hagah that served Makuta other than Teridax, such as Antroz, Mutran,[31] Chirox, Spiriah, Tridax,[18] and the Makuta of Stelt[OGDi: Dec 22 2009, 11:23 AM]. Most of these teams had six Toa apiece, though they were not limited to the six main elements.[32][33] After Teridax's Toa Hagah rebelled, some of these Toa were put to death, while some remained alive.[OGDi: Apr 3 2008, 06:58 PM][OGDi: Sep 7 2009, 02:59 PM] However, several Toa Hagah may have become corrupt and served in the Brotherhood's army.[34]
    • Several Toa Hagah who were used as raw materials for Rahi by Chirox. (transformed)[Bios][17]
  • A team of Toa that fought and imprisoned the Kanohi Dragon the first time it appeared in Metru Nui.[35]

  • A team of Toa that fought against the Dark Hunter called Poison.[38]
  • A team of four Toa on the Northern Continent who were killed off as part of a Dark Hunter plot. (deceased)[NOGLB]
  • Five other teams of Toa from which Makuta Teridax chose his Toa Hagah.[citation needed]

Alternate Toa

  • A Toa of Plasma that defended the Coliseum and killed Kojol
  • A Toa of Magnetism that defended the Coliseum.

  • Half a dozen Toa who were killed by Guardian before his death. (deceased)[DM, Ch. 8]

The Melding Alternate Universe

In this dimension, the Great Spirit Mata Nui was never built, and the Toa were designed to be small and agile in order to complete their mission: retrieve Energized Protodermis from the core of their world, Spherus Magna, and repair it as well as possible. Known Toa of this universe include:

Spherus Magna Alternate Universe

In this universe, Mata Nui completed his mission with little difficulty and reformed Spherus Magna. The Toa then took up positions helping the Agori and Glatorian to rebuild their villages. Known Toa of this universe include:
