Insects is a secondary Elemental Power sometimes also referred to as "The Swarm".
- Rahkshi and Kraata of Insect Control and all Makuta of Murtua have a limited range of Insect powers.
In the Matoran Universe, Insects is represented by the Matoran prefix Pe-, as well as the colors orange and white. Those who wield it tend to be scrappy and blindingly loyal.
- Pe-Matoran represent the Element of Insects. Pe-Matoran also contain a very minuscule amount of Elemental Insect Energy, to the extent that they are more intuitive to bugs. Almost all Matoran, Toa, and Turaga of Insects are male.
- Toa of Insects possess the Elemental Power of Insects, allowing them to control and absorb insectoid Rahi. Their only real limitation is that when they run out of Elemental Insect Energy, they must wait for it to recharge.
- Turaga of Insects possess small traces of Elemental Insect Energy.
- Summoning and manipulating a swarm of insectiod Rahi.
- Absorbing insectoid Rahi.
- Unleashing an Insects Nova Blast. (Toa-exclusive)
- Beings other than Toa and the Krahka cannot combine powers of any sort to create a Protodermis Cage. As long as each wields a different element, and providing that Light and Shadow are not included at the same time, then any six Toa can create a Protodermis Cage.
