BIONICLE G1 Toa Color Guide?

Hey y'all! I was wondering if anybody knows the commonly accepted rules when it comes to Toa Element/colour (especially the more obscure ones. IE: What colour should a Toa of Magnetism be? Or a Toa of Plasma?

I believe Biosector lists the colors known for each element.


Electricity: White and blue
Sound: white and silver
Magnetism: Gunmetal grey and black
Plasma: orange and white
Gravity: black and purple
Plantlife: green and blue
Psionics: blue and gold
Iron: black and silver
Shadow: black and some other colour
Light: any colors, but usually white and gold/yellow

Fire, Ice, Water, Stone, earth, and air are simply red, white, blue, brown/orange/yellow, and green, respectively, with similar colors, i.e. a Toa of Fire could be red and orange.
Hope this helps.


Darn, I guess the dark red and black Toa I'm trying to create a back story for doesn't really correspond to any known element...

:stuck_out_tongue: there ya go

@Willess12 is slightly misinformed.

Black is also a color that can be attributed to fire toa.

Albeit more minor than red, orange, or yellow.


Not misinformed. Just not thinking of that when I made the post. I was literally just about to say the same thing.

Red and black works for a toa of fire.
Look at Dume.


Yep... I don't recall anything about De-Toa being white, and I'm pretty sure Fe-Toa could have orange or bronze as a minor secondary color.
There were a few posts I saw on tumblr where people were creating different color schemes for the elements, and that project was fantastic, but I can't seem to find it again. If I do, I'll post here.


I was about to make another post giving an accurate whatever, but was too lazy.

De-Toa are Grey and silver, IIRC, and Fe-Toa could have burnt Orange, last I checked. In addition to gunmetals, silvers, and greys. >.>

Here's a quick photo of the guy who inspired me to make this topic. I still can't decide what element this Toa should be. Any suggestions? (BTW, name ideas would also be appreciated smiley)

Gravity maybe? I'm not really thinking of any good names for it at the moment though.


Something to start with a V.

Looks to me like Shadow or maybe even Gravity.

Can't think of a name right now, but he looks like a Toa of Fire or a Toa of Fire, that was turned into a Toa of Shadow (They keep their former primary colour as secondary colour).
Btw, this is one of the best Metru builds I have ever seen.
