New Elemental Prefix - Magnetism + Plant Life

Recommended Posts

Greg Farshtey has revealed that canonically:

 

Matoran of Magnetism are called Fa-Matoran.Prefix: Fa (Michael Faraday)Matoran of Plant Life are called Bo-Matoran.Prefix: Bo (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.

Two of my questions have anwsered. Now for the rest. Just one question, why Fa?

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?

Agreed. Really, really, great to have so many updates coming, even if they are minor. It shows Greg is still alive, at least. Hope for more major things in the future.

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.

*Watched my friend goes :hyper: on Skype because his theory about the prefix for the Plant Life Element was correct*

:unsure: (Not sure if I want to calm him down)

"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?

Clever! These are nice news. Good job on getting them Erebus!

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|~

Bo-Matoran, eh? I have a character who's element is plant life, so this came in handy. Thanks!

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.

First: ALL HAIL EREBUS AND GREG

 

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'm back!

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.

 

Thanks for the updates Greg and Erebus! :)

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

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:
I agree. Fa-Matoran sounds something like Matoran of Music :D. Just kidding.

I think there's still one matoran element that has not been counted. But which one...
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.com/wiki/index.php/Shadow]BS01[/url] and this http://www.bzpower.com/board/index.php?app=blog&module=display&section=blog&blogid=59&showentry=83461]Greg Feed[/url].

 

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

Oops. Didn't see that. I just went on BS01 to the list of Matoran types and all of them had (prefix here)-Matoran exept of Shadow (it says Shadow Matoran). Someone's got to update it.

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)

Then how come on the page for Shadow on BS01 it says Matoran prefix.

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.

 

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).
