Takanuva's Spirit Star appears above Mata Nui.

Spirit Stars are celestial bodies formed when new Toa come into existence. Every Toa has a spirit star.[1] Spirit stars are able to track the movement of their Toa, as seen when the Toa Metru followed Lhikan's spirit star in order to find him.[2][1]


Spirit stars inside the Matoran Universe were electrical impulses by the Great Spirit Robot's systems, while those outside the universe have some connection with the Red Star.[3] They have the ability to appear before their Toa has been created, such as in Takanuva's case.[4][1] On some occasions, spirit stars only appear when a Toa properly becomes one or completes a first task, such as when the Toa Metru sealed Teridax in Protodermis.[2]

Six stars that were above the island of Mata Nui were believed to be the Toa Mata's spirit stars.[1] When the Toa Inika were transformed, they had no spirit stars, but created their spirit stars in a burst of energy from their six weapons.[1][5] The spirit stars then fell into orbit around the Red Star.[5]


  • Toa who are mutated into other forms (such as Nidhiki or the Rahaga) still retain their spirit stars.[6]
  • Had a revived Toa returned to the Matoran Universe, their Spirit Stars would have reappeared on the sky as well.[7]
