Air is an Element in Bionicle. This element is used by Toa and Turaga of Air. Toa of Air have almost perfect control of the element. Turaga abilities are far weaker than a Toa's.


  • Creating air.
  • Controlling air.
    • Manipulating wind currents to glide on.
    • Creating cyclones.
  • Absorbing air to create a Vacuum.
  • Setting a delayed reaction of air (Nuva-exclusive).
  • Unleashing an Air Nova Blast.
  • Increased agility also comes with this power.


  • When combined with the Element of Water, it can be used to create a storm or a water cyclone.
  • When combined with the Element of Fire, it can be used to create a tornado of fire.
  • When combined with the Element of Stone, it can be used to create a powerful sandstorm.
  • When combined with any other five different Elements (not including Light and Shadow together), it creates a Protodermis cage around the target that is only breakable by a second union of the Elements.
  • When a Skakdi wishes to use their power of air, they must be paired with another Skakdi in order to do so.
