Te Fiti is a goddess with the power to create life and a major character in Disney's 2016 animated feature film Moana. After her heart had been stolen by the demigod Maui, she became Te Kā, a demon manifested of fire and magma that served as the foremost antagonist of the film. A damaged and emotionless shell of her former self, Te Kā looks to slowly plunge the world into darkness and eradicate humanity as punishment for Maui's insolence. Te Fiti has a pink flower crown around her head.

Essential guide descriptions

Te Ka

Te Ka is a mountain of red-hot lava and flame, surrounded by clouds of scalding steam and ash. The molten monster is by far the most dangerous foe Moana and Maui are about to face. But face it they must, if they are to reach the island of Te Fiti!

Te Fiti

Peaceful, loving Te Fiti is the mother island who generously gives life to the sea and the other islands. She is part island, and part spirit of life. When Te Fiti is happy, all is well!

Role in the film

Te Fiti is first seen in traditional animation during Gramma Tala's opening story. She tells the surrounding children about the day in which Maui stole Te Fiti's heart, and warns that it must be restored before humanity faces a slow and painful death at the hands of the lava demon Te Kā. Shortly afterward, the Ocean selects Tala's granddaughter, Moana, as the heroine capable of saving the world. Years later, Moana journeys with Maui to Te Fiti's island, which has been covered entirely by molten rock. Te Kā acts as a demonic guardian and prevents anyone from approaching Te Fiti's shores. Fortunately, Moana manages to do so, but she finds that Te Fiti is nowhere to be found. She looks to Te Kā and notices a spiral on the lava goddess' chest, indicating that she is actually Te Fiti. Moana sings "Know Who You Are" to Te Kā, which in turn reforms the beast as she succumbs to Moana. Moana gently rests her forehead on the bridge of Te Kā's face before placing the heart back into her chest.

Te Kā's lava skin turns to molten rock and crumbles away, releasing Te Fiti from her century-long torment. Te Fiti silently restores her island and undoes the damage caused by Te Kā across the world, as well as Moana's boat. Maui bashfully tries to joke with Te Fiti, but the goddess is not amused. He then apologizes in a formal matter, confessing that he has no excuse, which earns Te Fiti's forgiveness. As a reward for helping Moana restore the heart, Te Fiti recreates Maui's fishhook, which had been previously destroyed by Te Kā. She then bids farewell to Moana and lays herself down to rest as the heroine returns home.
