"Fire never surrenders. If it cannot burn through, it burns around. Block its path and it sends sparks through the air, to begin the blaze anew somewhere else. Fire always finds a way."

Fire was an Element representing thermal energy. This element was mainly used by Toa and Turaga of Fire and Ta-Matoran. Toa of Fire had almost perfect control of the element, while a Turaga of Fire's power were severely weakened. This element gave Ta-Matoran the ability to work in extremely hot environments.
