Toa Nuva

The Toa Nuva were heroes gifted with greater strength, stronger armor, and greater control over their elemental powers than ordinary Toa possessed. Toa Nuva had the ability to use Kanohi Nuva, masks which allowed the wearer to share their power with those in close proximity. The only known means of transforming a Toa into a Toa Nuva was by exposure to energized protodermis. The only six Toa Nuva ever known to exist were Tahu Nuva, Pohatu Nuva, Onua Nuva, Lewa Nuva, Kopaka Nuva, and Gali Nuva, who were originally the Toa Mata. Their transformation made them more powerful than before and for a time threatened to shatter their unity. However, they were able to combine forces to defeat the Bohrok-Kal and the Rahkshi.1


The strange energies of the protodermis transformed the Toa into the Toa Nuva, with new tools, new armor, and greater power than ever before.2

As Toa Nuva, the Toa had greater power, and control over that power, than ever before.3

After their transformation, the Toa Nuva discovered that they had greater control over their power than ever before.4

The Toa Nuva's new adaptive armor adapted to any environment, making them ready for battle wherever they went. In the swamp of Karda Nui, its flying jets kept the Toa safely in the air above its terrible waters. The Toa weapons adapted to be Nynrah ghost blasters, capable of firing a burst of energy which could then be shaped and controlled by the mind of the Toa into any form. Like their armor, the Toa Nuva's masks also adapted to combat in the swamp, becoming more streamlined for flight.5
