Range: Extended melee range, Kilometers with abilities (Destroyed the massive Odina Fortress with a single timed Stone Blast), Tens of Kilometers with Nova Blast

Standard Equipment: As a Toa Mata, he wore "Feet Additions", which made his kicks stronger, and as a Toa Nuva, they became stronger, and he gained Climbing Claws.

  • Kanohi: Like all Toa, Pohatu possesses a Kanohi. While he has a primary one, Kakama, he possesses the Kanohi of all the Toa Mata / Nuva, in addition to the Kanohi of the Toa Metru (though he lost these after he became a Toa Nuva), and is able to rapidly switch between them at will. He eventually acquired the Golden Kanohi, which gave him all the powers of the Toa Mata’s Kanohi, but he lost it when he became a Toa Nuva.
    • Kakama: The Great Mask of Speed, and Pohatu's primary mask. It allows him to move at high speeds, faster than the eye can see. Its Nuva version allows him to share this ability with his allies, on top of allowing him to phase through matter by vibrating his molecules at high speed.
    • Hau: The Great Mask of Shielding. It allows Pohatu to form a forcefield that protects himself from physical attack. Its Nuva version allows him to shield not only himself but others as well.
    • Kaukau: The Great Mask of Waterbreathing. It allows Pohatu to breathe underwater for a limited period of time. Its Nuva version gives the power to only breathe water, as well as being able to survive intense water pressures indefinitely, an ability that can be shared with others.
    • Miru: The Great Mask of Levitation. It allows Pohatu to float and glide on air, though flight relies on wind currents. Its Nuva version allows him to share this ability with his allies.
    • Pakari: The Great Mask of Strength. When used, it simply raises Pohatu's physical strength past his regular limits. Its Nuva version simply enhances its effects and allows him to share them with his allies.
    • Akaku: The Great Mask of X-Ray Vision. It allows Pohatu to see through solid objects and is outfitted with telescopic lenses that enhance his vision further. Its Nuva version strengthens the effect to the point where Pohatu can see through illusions and can share it with his allies.
    • Huna: The Great Mask of Concealment, which allows Pohatu to become invisible, though he still leaves a shadow.
    • Rau: The Great Mask of Translation. It allows Pohatu to understand and speak virtually any written or spoken language, as well as the meaning behind carvings.
    • Mahiki: The Great Mask of Illusion. Through its power, Pohatu can create a variety of illusions. He can shapeshift to change his appearance, and mimic voices as well.
    • Komau: The Great Mask of Mind Control. Using Komau, Pohatu can see into the minds of others, control them, and attack their minds with mental blasts. However, the mask cannot be used to direct someone against their morals.
    • Ruru: The Great Mask of Night Vision, which releases a beam of light that illuminates Pohatu's surroundings and grants him limited X-ray vision. It can be used as a weapon, too, as the bright light can blind opponents.
    • Matatu: The Great Mask of Telekinesis, which allows Pohatu to manipulate other objects within his field of vision through his psychic powers.
  • Adaptive Armor: A special armor given to Pohatu by Artakha prior to the final battle with the Makuta on Karda Nui. The Adaptive Armor’s onboard artificial intelligence analyzes whatever situation and environment Pohatu finds himself in, and adapts its construction to best suit the conditions. It can grant Pohatu the ability to fly in aerial combat, and can even adapt to the vacuum of space.
    • Midak Skyblaster: A ranged weapon granted to Pohatu by the Adaptive Armor. It 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, and can potentially drain all the light from one's surroundings if it is overused.

Intelligence: Pohatu is an intelligent and skilled warrior.

Weaknesses: Pohatu is weakened without his Kanohi. 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 Stone: Pohatu is a Toa of Stone, giving him the ability to manipulate stone and rock as he pleases, and he can even absorb it. He can shatter stone easily, manipulate it on a molecular level, and throw stones at his enemies with great force. As a Toa Nuva, he can set timers on stones that cause them to explode.
