    Description: Pohatu is so immensely strong that he can literally move mountains. He can make massive rocks explode like bombs or roll with great precision towards an attacker. His huge feet contain great power, smashing even the most unyielding stones with a single kick! All the Toa like Pohatu for his kind nature and for his rock-solid dependability. He's slow, but friendly and reliable. He's not good at snap decisions, but when he makes a decision to do something, he stands firm until the end--so DON'T get in his way! Whenever there is trouble, Pohatu will always be there behind you, an immovable force that few enemies can dislodge. His only fear is water: he cannot swim, and he a stone. Pohatu inhabits the foothills of Mount Ihu, moving slowly but sure-footedly among the rocks and boulders at the base of the great mountain.

    After being summoned by Takua, Pohatu arrived on Mata Nui with little memory of his past life. After he met the other Toa Mata, they proceeded to collect the Great Masks scattered around the island. Once they had accomplished this, Pohatu, Onua, and Tahu merged into Akamai, the Toa Kaita of Valor to face the Makuta. After they defeated him, he unleashed the Bohrok swarms onto the island. Pohatu and the others were then forced to collect every breed of Krana to unlock the Exo-Toa, so that they could face the Bahrag queens. After defeating and imprisoning them, Pohatu and the other Toa were plunged into energized protodermis and transformed into Toa Nuva.

    Pohatu is the friendliest and most reliable of the Toa. A strong believer in team work, he can always be depended upon in battle. Pohatu normally wears the Kanohi Kakama, the Great Mask of Speed.
