Pantheon / The Pantheonic Toa

Go To

Upon ascending to the Pantheon, Mata Nui realized that the Pantheon had a need for balance. He knew that the Toa, protectors and heroes of the Matoran Universe, each with a unique Elemental Power were a good choice. As such, he set about creating a group made up of all 16 elements.

Each Division is led by a Toa hero from the Matoran Universe, chosen personally by Mata Nui himself.

Any member of the Pantheon with Elemental Powers may join, though they must act for balance and good while actively working amongst themselves. Outside they are free to act as they wish.


In Cyberspace, pulses of white run along the Tron Lines of deities who have joined the Pantheonic Toa; any previous colouration remains alongside them.


The Three commanders of the Pantheonic Toa.

Mata Nui, the Benevolent God and Leader of the Pantheonic Toa (The Great Spirit, The Being, not the Island)

Avatar Aang, God Of The Elements (The Avatar, The Last Airbender, Twinkletoes, Kung-fu Action Jesus)

Avatar Korra, Goddess of Harsh Personal Growth (Water Tribe Stallion)


The Advisory Council:

In the Matoran Universe, almost every village, town or city was led by a Turaga, a wise former Toa who had sacrificed their powers for the greater good. Such beings, Mata Nui thought, would be ideal to guide the Pantheonic Toa and ensure that they did not lose their way as defenders of balance - and what better Turaga than Turaga?

The 16 Elements of the Matoran Universe. Each Division is led by an actual Toa of the Matoran Universe.
