Mata Nui was created hundreds of thousands of years ago, by the Great Beings, to explore and observe the galaxy. He contained the Matoran Universe within his body, and created much of what existed within, among them Teridax. However, due to his neglectfulness, and Teridax's own great ambition, Teridax betrayed him and poisoned him with a virus that sent him into a deep slumber, and, ultimately, killed him (for a time). When Teridax seized control of his body and banished his soul outside of it along with the Ignika, Mata Nui was given a body and became conscious. With the knowledge of his past failures, he decided to become a true hero, one worthy of the Matoran Universe's respect.

Classification: Guardian of the Matoran Universe
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Extrasensory Perception (Can sense life from an interplanetary distance), Flight, Biological Manipulation/Technological Manipulation (Can create biomechanical lifeforms), Elemental Manipulation, Energy Manipulation, Limited Fate Manipulation (The Great Spirit Robot decides the fates of all those within it, giving them a rough outline of their destiny, which they will fulfill), Gravity Manipulation, Matter Manipulation (Created the Makuta, shaping them from Antidermis, which he turned to solid matter), Memory Manipulation (Erased the Time Slip from memory), Mind Manipulation (Can insert thoughts into Teridax's mind), Pocket Reality Manipulation (The Great Spirit Robot contains several pocket dimensions separate from the rest of its space), Soul Manipulation (Can move souls between bodies and remove them from them as well), Weather Manipulation (He has control of the Matoran Universe's climate), Power Nullification (Teridax prevented Artakha from teleporting back inside the Matoran Universe), Limited Precognition (Can see which beings are destined to be transformed by Energized Protodermis), Telepathy, Teleportation (Can teleport those within his body to anywhere he pleases within the Matoran Universe, or outside of his body, into space), Longevity, Resurrection with the Red Star (Can resurrect beings in the Matoran Universe as long as enough of their body, mind, and soul remains, by moving their souls back into their bodies), Resistance to Mind Manipulation/Telepathy (Teridax would have trouble breaking his will), possibly Death Manipulation (As the Great Spirit Robot, Teridax could end the lives of any living being in the Matoran Universe with a thought, but he'd need the means to do so) | Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Life Manipulation (Wields Ignika and has access to all of its abilities, allowing for Age Manipulation, Biological Manipulation, Illusion Creation, Matter Manipulation, Memory Manipulation, Mind Manipulation, Teleportation, and Transmutation), Possession (Can leave his body to possess unoccupied ones), Immortality (Types 3 and 6), Regeneration (Low-High; can regenerate from just the Ignika, which contains his spirit, by creating a new body out of his surroundings) | Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Energy Manipulation, Gravity Manipulation
Attack Potency: At least Large Planet level (When Teridax was in the Great Spirit Robot, he had the power to instantly destroy Bara Magna, a planet large enough for the Earth-sized Great Spirit Robot and the smaller Prototype Robot to walk and fight on without causing planetary destruction, and pull in its moons to recreate the even largerSpherus Magna) | City level+ (Glatorians are capable of fighting against Rahkshi and Skakdi alongside the Toa, though they are quite a bit weaker, and Mata Nui fought against Glatorians) | At least Large Planet level (Despite being outmatched in terms of power, the Prototype Robot was able to fight against Great Spirit Teridax and redirect an attack that could've caused Bara Magna to collapse in on itself. Recreated Spherus Magna itself after Teridax's defeat)
Speed: Massively Hypersonic+ (Should be at least comparable to Toa and others within his body). Nigh-Omnipresent in the Matoran Universe (While it is contained within his body, his awareness of what's occurring within is not perfect). Unknown, possibly Massively FTL+ travel speed with the Red Star (Capable of travelling across the universe in an unspecified timeframe). | Massively Hypersonic+ (Should be somewhat comparable to Toa, who can fight with Avohkah, lightning-based Rahi that possess the properties of lightning and were mistaken for lightning bolts, as well as Bohrok-kal, Rahkshi, and Makuta who can manipulate electricity) | Massively Hypersonic+ (Traded blows with Teridax in the Great Spirit Robot)
Lifting Strength: At least Class Z (The Great Spirit Robot is only slightly smaller than Earth, and Teridax can pull planets with gravity manipulation) | At least Class 1 (The average Toa is able to lift over 1 ton), likely at least Class 100 (Onua Nuva lifted a boulder, as have other Toa and beings on their level) | At least Class Z (The Prototype Robot is the size of a small planet and could pull and move planets with gravity manipulation)
Striking Strength: At least Large Planet Class | City Class+ | At least Large Planet Class (Traded blows with Great Spirit Teridax)
Durability: At least Large Planet level | City level+ | At least Large Planet level (Took blows from Great Spirit Teridax)
Stamina: Limitless. | High. | Poor, due to its unstable power source.
Range: Interplanetary (Can pull multiple planets at once with gravitational forces). | Extended melee range. | Interplanetary.
Standard Equipment: In his "Toa" Body, Mata Nui utilized the Ignika, a Scarab Shield, and a sword made from a Vezon's stinger. In the Prototype Robot, he retained the Ignika.
Intelligence: Mata Nui is inexperienced and somewhat naive.
Weaknesses: Mata Nui is inexperienced and does not have a full understanding of the Ignika's powers. The Great Spirit Robot must be constantly maintained by the Matoran within to remain functional, while the Prototype Robot's power source is unstable and limited.
Key: Great Spirit Robot | "Toa" Body | Prototype Robot
Note: While the Red Star has been stated by Word of God to be incapable of surpassing the speed of light, Mata Nui traveled across the universe in a short timeframe with it.
Notable Attacks / Techniques:
The Great Spirit Robot: Mata Nui's original body. Standing at forty-million feet tall, the Great Spirit Robot contained all of the Matoran Universe within itself.
Mata Nui can control and manipulate the environment within the Great Spirit Robot, and can teleport those within outside to suffocate in space. He has control over all things in the Matoran Universe; all the elements that compose the world, and all the environments themselves. The robot can fire energy beams and exert powerful bursts of gravity that are capable of destroying and reforming Spherus Magna.
The Great Spirit Robot’s power is also dependent on the constant maintenance and work of the Matoran within, and substantial damage to these systems will incapacitate it.
