Sand is an Elemental Power. It is not very common within the Matoran Universe, with only three known beings recorded as possessing it at one point in history.

Species Wielders[]


  • Matoran of Sand, or Sa-Matoran, would come in the colours of Yellow, Black and Brown, and have inactive sand powers. They would also be naturally good at making sand sculptures and building using glass. 
  • Toa of Sand can manipulate, absorb, create and (in some cases) turn things into Sand. If they use all of their elemental Sand energy, they must wait for it to recharge.

All of the following locations are affiliated with the Element of Sand:


  • Initially, the Great Beings excluded Sand from the Matoran Universe during its creation. A possible reason for this is that sand may not exactly have been common within its environments, nor would there much need for it.
    • However, the Element does appear within the Great Spirit Robot (albeit as a rarity).
    • Si is a prefix from the word siliceous.
