Widgets are a form of currency used mainly by the Matoran of the Matoran Universe.


Widgets were based on the Protodermic currency that was used on Metru Nui prior to the Great Cataclysm.[1] They were accepted by other beings of the Matoran Universe, although most other species had their own forms of currency.[2][3] After the Bohrok-Kal attack on the island of Mata Nui, the Matoran began using Widgets instead of the simple barter system that they had been using previously.[1][4] The Matoran continued to use Widgets when they returned to Metru Nui.[5]

It is unknown if Matoran continued to use Widgets after the death of Teridax and the mass evacuation to Spherus Magna.[6]

The Matoran on other islands also used widgets are currency.[7]
