"Even as [Icarax] gloats over his triumph, I am summoning every last bit of moisture from the air for hundreds of kios around.

A Nova Blast was an extremely powerful ability, often considered to be a last resort, which was unleashed when a Toa gathered and released all of their elemental energy at once. After a Toa had performed one, they were unable use any elemental powers until their energies had recharged. They were rarely used because of their highly destructive, and often lethal force.
