* NoHuggingNoKissing: [[{{Handwave}}Handwaved]] for Matoran, at least, by the fact that they're cyborgs with no need for romance in the human sense, as they cannot reproduce sexually. There was a Hewkii/Macku pairing and some Jaller/Hahli teasing in the flash animations of ''Chronicles'', as well as the films, though they didn't really have any significance as the storyline progressed. Note: this trope has not stopped [[{{Shipping}} shippers]] in the ''slightest''. (Does anything really?)

** Subverted however in the case of the Makuta. They were originally working to maintain order and peace in the Matoran Universe, as well as create rahi (the Matoran Universe equivalent of animals). It wasn't until Makuta Teridax, with dreams of taking control of the Matoran Universe, overthrew their leader Makuta Miserix, that the Makuta became a force of evil.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In Destiny War, when Vezon is asking Trinuma what they're supposed to do when they arrive at their destination, Vezon asks: "So what am I supposed to do on Destral? Theft? Assassination? Running with sharp objects?"

* DiminishingVillainThreat: While most of the Barraki are arguably less intimidating than their backstories had implied (having started a war that Toa couldn't contain and required ''Makuta'' of all people to step in and resolve), Carapar got the worst of it after the Mahri Nui Arc. [[spoiler:He became essentially a prisoner of the Order of Mata Nui and was sent on a suicide mission with his jailer, then gets killed by Tren Krom's eyebeam in an instant.]] This is a far cry from his original position as a ruthless and cunning warlord who commanded a whole kingdom. That said, it is explicitly stated that being hypnotized repeatedly by Takadox did a number on his mental faculties.

** Prior to the Karda Nui Saga, a single Makuta was a big enough threat to warrant an entire team of Toa. No less than 7 Makuta, one of which is Teridax's second in command, shows up and gets beaten like the generic villains of any other arc. However each of them do have something holding them back (see DramaPreservingHandicap)

** Matorans who become Toa was ret-conned to take on the appearance of whatever they thought a Toa was suppose to look like at the time of their ascension. This way Takanuva could re-use the pieces and molds for the Toa Nuva (who were the newest toas at the time) and not have to explain why he resembles a set of Toa that was the byproduct of a freak accident and not the original Toa Mata or the next set of toas; the Toa Metru.

** The "Creeps from the Deep" short film/commercial depicts Dekar finding the Ignika while running away from all 6 Barraki. This is only loosely based on the events in other media as anyone who so much as touches the mask gets cursed (and Dekar does indeed get cursed in the story when he touches the thing).
