    Matoran word meaing "mask." The Kanohi Masks of Power were vital to the survival of the Matoran and the power of the Turaga and Toa. Kanohi masks were created using Kanoka disks and were made in Ta-Metru in Metru Nui. There are Matoran masks, which are powerless masks, and are worn by Matoran for the sake of keeping them healthly. A Matoran having a mask off for too long can lead to comatose. Matoran cannot access the powers of Noble or Great masks, which is why they wear powerless ones, just for survival. They are made from Kanoka disks with a power level of 6 and under. Noble masks are commonly worn by Turaga, but can also be used by Toa. Turaga and Toa alike can use Noble masks. These masks are made from Kanoka disks with a power level of 7. Great masks are effectively used by Toa, as only Toa have the mental discipline and willpower to use such masks. They are made from Kanoka disks with a power level of 8. Such masks as the Kraahkan, Mask of Shadows, and the Avohkii, Mask of Light -- although differently powered and unique -- are still considered Great masks. The most powerful mask type has been dubbed "Legendary masks." The Vahi, the Mask of Time, and the Ignika, the Mask of Life, are the only two known Legendary masks at this time. They are considered legendary because life itself cannot exist without one or the other. A Matoran wearing a Matoran, powerless mask will wear a Great mask if that Matoran transforms into a Toa. Then once that Toa transforms into a Turaga (if so), that Great mask will become a Noble mask.
