    Toa Matau Hordika hates his new form and considers himself to be a monster now; he is willing to do anything to change back to a Toa Metru. He is impatient to rescue the Matoran so that the search can begin for a cure for their condition. Coming on the heels of the battle with Makuta, Matau is now realizing that being a "Toa-hero" is not all glory and victories. But he will discover that he has a natural talent for taming and bonding with Rahi beasts. Physically, Matau is the most affected by the transformation.

    After defeating the Visorak, Keetongu turned the Toa Hordika back into Toa Metru.
