Onu-Matoran are a sub-species of Matoran imbued with an Elemental influence over Earth.


Similarly to all other Matoran sub-species, the Onu-Matoran were conceived by the Great Beings on Spherus Magna. For a number of years, they aided in the early construction of the Matoran Universe with no worldly desires or true consciousness. After a considerable period of heavy labor, the Onu-Matoran were eventually placed in strategic underground climates of the Great Spirit Robot, notably staking a regional foothold in Metru Nui. Sharing their terrain with the larger Matoran populace, the Onu-Matoran endeavored to carry out their purpose by maintaining their villages, to ensure the continued functionality of the Great Spirit. Shortly after the successful launch of the Matoran Universe, all Matoran gained true sentience due to Velika's tampering with the Matoran species. Although they continued their original task, Onu-Matoran became imbued with emotions and became self-aware.

Roughly 79,500 years ago, the Onu-Matoran populace of Metru Nui became complicit in the Great Disruption following a trading dispute between Po-Metru and Ta-Metru. With the dispute escalating into a full-scale war, the residents of Onu-Metru were at first impartial to the conflict before they were ultimately forced into an alliance with the Ta-Matoran. Although the Brotherhood of Makuta would eventually intervene to end the conflict and restore Metru Nui, the Great Disruption would cause lingering hostilities and resentment between Ta-Matoran and Po-Matoran across the Matoran Universe.

Abilities and Traits[]

Onu-Matoran are known to be a peaceful and industrious tribe who have adapted to subterranean regions across the Matoran Universe. Often proving to be the most diplomatic of Matoran breeds, Onu-Matoran are generally considered mild-mannered and wholesome.

Possessing the vestiges of dormant Elemental Earth Energy, Onu-Matoran exhibit a natural affinity towards underground climates. As such, Onu-Matoran generally have access to limited night-vision and greater physical endurance than most other breeds of Matoran.

Typically male, Onu-Matoran are known to adorn themselves exclusively in black and gray armor, occasionally complimented by secondary shades of orange, tan and purple.
