Greg Farshtey has revealed that canonically: 

 

[color=#006666;]Matoran of Magnetism[/color] are called [color=#006666;]Fa-Matoran[/color].Prefix: [color=#006666;]Fa[/color] (Michael Faraday)[color=#008000;]Matoran of Plant Life[/color] are called [color=#008000;]Bo-Matoran[/color].Prefix: [color=#008000;]Bo[/color] (botany)

 

Any other information such as Matoran traits or primary locations for the missing Matoran types will be revealed later when I get the info.

Well, Michael Faraday was a scientist studying the field of electromagnetism, so I guess Greg decided to go with that prefix.

Nice to see more new stuff. I don't think there are any unknown Matoran type names now. Also, botany is the study of plants (or something like that).

Okay check, but why not Amps. It is the unit of measure, since the French man Amplie, something like that made the unit of measure.

Maybe volts seemed more appropriate for electricity/lightning?

Because ampere is the unit for electrical current, which is unrelated? If we were going for relevant SI-unit based names, the proper one would be Te, for Teslas, the unit of magnetic flux. Which, incidentally, would sound a lot better than Fa as well. Also, if Te were used, we would already know some of the elemental traits of such Matoran: being recluses and having a fondness for laser pigeons.

Fa - Matoran is just weird. It sounds so much like Ba - Matoran. Bo-Matoran just kinda felt obvious, however. 

 

Although with those three prefixes being so similiar - Fa, Ba, Bo - I think it will be easy to confuse the three. But that's probably just me. :shrugs:

"Why not" can be asked of any prefix choice anyways and is therefore irrelevant. ;) If that was chosen, we could ask "why not 'Fa'?"

 

Anyways, awesome. This is the full list, now, right?

Bo-Matoran was the obvious choice, but for that reason it works.Now, Fa-Matoran? That was pretty clever in my opinion, and I like it for that. ^_^~|ET|~

I'm grateful that Greg is making these things solid canon, but a little voice in the back of my head is saying that he's only fixing these things because it pleases us fans without usurping much of his time at all.  Otherwise he'd continue the serials.

Second: Something strange out here, didn't we say a legal stuff was needed even for prefixes, and since Greg lost tha list he couldn't add more, we explained Vo with the fact it was already comfirmed with the Kraata, but I never saw a Krana/Kraata named Fa, how do you guys explain this?

I like Bo-Matoran as the name for Matoran of Plant Life. Fa-Matoran, however, sounds a little weird to me. Though I still like in a way.

Yay! More matoran prefixes! I am so glad he didn't go with "Gre" for the Bo-Matoran. He probably didn't like it because they are the 1st letters of his name. Thanks Greg and Erebus!

 

PS. After checking BS01, it appears that all of the elemental prefixes for the MU have been assigned! :D

Shadow Matoran (which isn't an existing type of Matoran except of Vultraz, now in the Melding Universe). For those of you that don't know, Kra-Matoran is not the canon term.

It is according to http://biosector01.c...php/Shadow]BS01[/url] and this http://www.bzpower.c...ntry=83461]Greg Feed[/url].

 

So, technically, we now have all the Matoran prefix.

There's just a little problem: the Shadow Matoran do not see themselves as a tribe, and as such they do not use a prefix in their moniker, like Av-Matoran (or Kra-Matoran, as it is supposed to be)

Kra-Matoran? Why would there be a prefix for Shadow Matoran? They were never supposed to be created, let alone have a name for their type.

Well this is very exciting news!  Glad to finally have prefixes to match to each Matoran element.  I still wish the serials could continue at some point

 

[color=#ffa500;]I particularly like the Fa prefix for Faraday.  Also could be linked to the electrical measurement of Farads (named in honor of Faraday, so I guess the prefix is linked to both however you look at it).[/color]
