Abilities and Traits
The Po-Matoran have inactive Stone powers. The Po-Matoran on the city of Metru Nui take on the occupation of craftsmen and carvers, whereas those on Mata Nui tend to be athletic and often play the Matoran game of Kolhii. On the island of Voya Nui and Mahri Nui, the Po-Matoran share the many occupations there.
Po-Matoran are the most involved in sports of the Matoran, and are highly competitive. However, few of them can swim, and they seem to all share an instinctive fear of water. On Mata Nui and later Metru Nui, they valued Unity and Destiny the most out of the Three Virtues, from which they derive their Principle of Creation and the skill of Strategy.
Identifiable physical attributes of Po-Matoran include different shades of brown, yellow, orange, tan, and black Kanohi and armor. Like many Matoran types, their armor colors vary by region. They are also one of the several male Matoran types.
