Vatuka are large and fearsome elemental beings made entirely out of Stone.


The Vatuka were created when rock material was exposed to Energized Protodermis.[2][3][4][1][5]

When the Toa Metru fought the Energized Protodermis Entity in the Maze of Shadows a Vatuka was created. However, the rock monster was quickly destroyed by Onewa.[2][3][4][1][5]

Some Vatuka found their way to Mata Nui. There they mostly resided in Onu-Wahi, but some also lived in Ta-Wahi.[6] Vatuka interacted so infrequently with Matoran that the Matoran questioned if Vatuka even existed.[7] Near the end of the Great War, a Vatuka captured Turaga Whenua. The Vatuka was defeated and Whenua rescued by Takua.[6][1]

The Vatuka on Mata Nui later returned to the Matoran Universe following the Matoran's and Rahi's return after the defeat of Teridax.[citation needed]

After the destruction of the Matoran Universe, many Vatuka immigrated to Spherus Magna.[citation needed]

Abilities and Traits

A red version of the Vatuka

Vatuka appear to be made entirely of rock. They are slightly wider and twice the height of a diminished Matoran of Mata Nui. They are humanoid from the waist up and a pile of stones from the waist down. Though Vatuka are normally gray with red eyes, a red variation with green eyes once lived in Ta-Wahi.[6]

Vatuka are capable of creating blasts of Stone.[6]
