"Light can do a lot of things. It can illuminate. It can welcome. It can warm. As it turns out, it can also make laser beams that slice through protosteel."
Toa Takanuva, Takanuva's Blog

Light was an element that allowed the user to augment their abilities with the properties of light or create light-based objects, as well as manipulation of light. It was associated with good due to its great power against the Makuta.

  • To show the difference of the power levels of a Toa, Matoran, and Turaga of Light, Greg Farshtey said that if a Toa of Light were a sun, a Turaga would be a 100 watt bulb and a Matoran would be a lantern.
