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.

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.
