Solis Magna System
The Solis Magna system is a solar system located within the Galactic Universe. It consists of a binary star, Solis Magna, and is known to have at least one habitable planet, Spherus Magna.
Spherus Magna was the planet of the Great Beings and the origins of the Energized Protodermis, but was shattered at the end of the Core War into three fragments. It was later reformed through the efforts of Mata Nui, and is now the home for the Agori, Matoran and other species previously residing on Bara Magna and the Matoran Universe.

Aqua Magna (Post-Shattering - Pre-Reformation of Spherus Magna)
After The Shattering, Aqua Magna became one of the two natural satellites orbiting Bara Magna. It was here where the Great Spirit Mata Nui, whose robotic body housing the Matoran Universe, crash-landed on, creating the island of Mata Nui and later the location where Voya Nui rested on.
Mata Nui was a large, tropical island that covered the face of the slumbering Mata Nui. Matoran resided on it for nearly 1,000 years, but the island was later deserted after the rediscovery of Metru Nui. The island was returned to its original, barren state by the Bohrok, and was penetrated and destroyed when the Great Spirit Mata Nui awoke.

Voya Nui (Post-Great Cataclysm-Pre-Usage of the Staff of Artakha)
Voya Nui, also known as the "Daggers of Death," was a highly dangerous and low-resource island located south of Mata Nui. Voya Nui was once the central region of the Southern Continent, but during the Great Cataclysm, it was dislodged from the Great Spirit's body and rocketed to the surface of Aqua Magna. It has since returned to the continent. Below are some of the unique locations of Voya Nui.
- Matoran Cliff Village
- Cavern of Historical Records
- Piraka Stronghold
- Chamber of Truth
- Piraka Outposts
- Lagoon Entrance
Formerly a coastal city built on hardened molten Protodermis from Voya Nui's Mount Valmai, Mahri Nui sunk beneath the sea, linking with the island above with a narrow stone formation called The Cord. The city was destroyed when Voya Nui returned to its position on the Southern Continent. Below were some of the geographical locations on Mahri Nui:

The Great Spirit Mata Nui houses the Matoran Universe inside its massive body.
Metru Nui is a city that the Matoran had lived on for centuries before they immigrated to Mata Nui. It was later ruined by the Great Cataclysm after Teridax emptied the city's only power source, the power plant. The Matoran of Mata Nui have recently returned and the city has been reconstructed by the powers of the Staff of Artakha.

The Southern Continent is a continent which is located within a giant underground dome. This continent was the location where Matoran repaired by Karzahni were sent to.
Below is a list of geographical locations on the part of the continent named Voya Nui:
- Mount Valmai
- Lake of Lava
- The Green Belt
- Desert of Sorrows
- Nui Caves
- Ring of Ice
- Cape of No Hope
The Pit is a massive jail complex where beings who are considered irredeemable by the Order of Mata Nui are taken. Botar was the Order of Mata Nui member responsible for sending defeated beings there. The Pit was destroyed by the Great Cataclysm and thus the prisoners went to the Black Water outside it, where they were altered by a Mutagen in the water. The Pit has since been repaired and drained of water.
Karda Nui is the core and power source of the Matoran Universe, located beneath the Southern Continent. It is here that the Ignika is to be used to save the life of the Great Spirit Mata Nui. The Av-Matoran colonized it briefly before the Energy Storms first struck, after which it was uninhabitable. Following the Great Cataclysm, Karda Nui became partially flooded with water from Aqua Magna, causing the floor of the cavern to become a swamp. When the Great Spirit was reawakened, the Energy Storms decimated the swamp and almost all other matter in Karda Nui. Stalactite Villages
Odina was the base of the Dark Hunters, which is situated on an island barricaded by tall cliffs. The base has many training facilities for Dark Hunters to practice their skills. Below are some locations of Odina: Nidhiki Beach Odina Fortress
Daxia was the largest base of the Order of Mata Nui. The island was a hot, tropical paradise with dangerous Rahi and plants, and was equipped with strong weapons to defend itself, if needed. Daxia Fortress
Destral was the largest base of the Brotherhood of Makuta, and was armed with many traps and hidden weapons, to prevent intruders. Large amounts of Energized Protodermis could also be found here. Destral Fortress
Xia is a mass producer of weapons for many organizations, including the League of Six Kingdoms before its destruction, the Brotherhood of Makuta, and occasionally the Dark Hunters, along with other islands which are willing to pay. Xia also houses a giant, living mountain, named "The Mountain".
Artakha is a legendary refuge for good workers ruled by Artakha, a being of the same name. This island is home to the world's best Matoran carvers, and many famous artifacts they have created. The island is currently hidden away from the outside world after an invasion from the Brotherhood of Makuta.
Karzahni is where damaged or injured Matoran used to be sent and be fixed, although all attempts by the land's ruler, Karzahni ended in failure. He eventually gave up in frustration and blamed the Matoran for his inability to fix them. The location eventually became a part of legend, saying that it is where bad or poor workers are sent.
Tunnel of Darkness
Tren Krom's island is a barren piece of rock serving as the location of Tren Krom's incarceration.
The Red Star is a space object in which beings are known to reside, and which travels with the Matoran Universe to be used to transport it from planet to planet. It is currently in orbit around Spherus Magna.

Alternate Locations===Alternate Universes==
Alternate Timelines are spawned from an act or choice made in the primary universe; for every decision made there, an alternate timeline exists where a different choice or outcome occurred.
The Melding Alternate Universe is an alternate universe in which the Great Spirit Mata Nui was never built. It diverged from the prime reality before the planet of Spherus Magna was destroyed by the Shattering.
This alternate universe diverged from the prime reality when the Brotherhood decided to remain benevolent, the Great Spirit Mata Nui's task was never interfered with. Mata Nui went to Bara Magna and traveled north to complete his mission to repair Spherus Magna.
The Toa Empire Alternate Universe is an alternate universe which diverged from the prime reality during Toa Mangai Tuyet's betrayal involving the Nui Stone on Metru Nui. Toa ruled the universe in a oppressive dictatorship, led by Tuyet. Here, Dark Hunters and the Brotherhood of Makuta act as freedom fighters.
For a full list of locations, please go here.
The Kingdom is situated in an alternate universe that diverged from the prime reality when Toa Mahri Matoro failed to use the Kanohi Ignika and Mata Nui died, forcing most of the inhabitants of the Matoran Universe to migrate to the island of Mata Nui to escape the collapse of the Matoran Universe.
The island of Mata Nui has been extended and strengthened after the inhabitants of the Matoran Universe migrated here. It serves as the home of almost every single species which lived in the Matoran Universe.
