BIONICLE Headcanons

Welcome to the Boards.

Iron has the ability to create metal, but aside from that Magnetism appears to have more advantages. Both are ridiculously overpowered, however.

My headcanon is that there are only a handful of Toa of Magnetism in the universe because to me it isn’t befitting of a normal matoran/toa/turaga element :gregf:
(I would say the same about some of the other secondaries)

I don’t mean to go off topic, but how is Magnetism superior?

Greg mentioned a few superior skills here.

Also, think anything Magneto was able to do with Metal (in some versions he’s kinda OP)

While this might be a bit too technical for anything that would actually be written in Bionicle canon, Magnetism could allow generation of an electric field in the right circumstances.

A proper degree of control over a magnetic field would allow a Toa of Magnetism to heat up metal extremely quickly through induction. A Toa of Iron may also be able to heat (and cool) metal if he had atomic-level control over the metal, but that seems less likely.

Also, Magnetism could plausibly allow for a similar degree of metal manipulation as a Toa of Iron, though Greg has said otherwise in the past:


As for a more general idea, I’ve thought before that Toa of Magnetism, Lightning, and Iron would be a ridiculous team, and could form a very synergetic kaita.
