The Matoran that would one day be known as Takanuva, the Toa of Light, was the first of all Matorans, created as Takua, an Av-Matoran. During the Time Slip, he manipulated light to disguise himself as a Ta-Matoran. Takua was a restless and curious adventurer who traveled in search of adventure, and eventually became the Chronicler. Ultimately, after many adventures, he found the Great Mask of Light and realized his destiny, becoming the Seventh Toa - Takanuva, the Toa of Light.

Attack Potency: Town level (Comparable to other Toa, such as Gali and Lewa, who made a storm together), Large Island level with Nova Blast (The damage caused by an average Toa’s Nova Blast is enough to destroy Metru Nui, which is the size of a large island)
Speed: Massively Hypersonic+ (Comparable to other 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), possibly Speed of Light through his abilities (He's theoretically capable of using the abilities of lesser Av-Matorans, such as being able to move at the speed of light, and was working on it, but it's unknown if he mastered it).

Striking Strength: Town Class
Durability: Town level
Range: Extended melee range, Hundreds of Meters with abilities, Hundreds of Kilometers with Nova Blast
Standard Equipment: The Staff of Light / Power Lance / Twin Light Staffs.
- Avhokii: The Great Mask of Light. In addition to granting him control over elemental Light (though he already has it), it allows him to sense the moral light in other beings, and he can also induce peace and understanding in them to end conflict.
- Midak Skyblaster: A ranged weapon that fires spheres of Light, which is highly effective against beings of Shadow, such as the Makuta. This works by drawing in the light in the user’s surroundings.
- Ussanui: A flying vehicle that Takanuva created from the remains of dead Rahkshi and Bohrok-Kal.
Intelligence: Takanuva is inventive, creative, and skilled in combat.
Weaknesses: Takanuva is vulnerable to elemental Shadow. After being drained of his inner Light, his Light powers became weaker, though he later managed to recover his lost light. Using a Nova Blast drains his powers and leaves him incapable of using his elemental powers for a few days.
Notable Attacks / Techniques:
Toa of Light: Takanuva is the only Toa of Light, and can thus control, create, and absorb Light however he pleases. He can fire focused beams of light, create solid or intangible holograms, absorb light, and alter its appearance to disguise his real appearance. He can absorb light, as well, and with practice and discipline, can even move at the speed of light.
- Shadow Powers: After being partially drained of his inner Light, Takanuva temporarily gained the ability to manipulate Shadow.
