Mato's signature Nail Art is the Cyclone Slash, which allows its master to spin their nail in a circular fashion, damaging all enemies around them.
Nailmaster Mato is found in Howling Cliffs.
I'm impressed you found my sanctuary here at the top of the world. No doubt you've endured many trials and overcome many foes in your quest to find me.
No, don't speak a word. I, Nailmaster Mato, who was taught the Art of the Nail by the Great Nailsage himself, hereby accept you as my pupil! Let us begin the lesson immediately!
Subsequent offers of training
Refusal of training
Do not fret. I too was once like you, unsure of my own strength. Stay here with me and meditate, and once you are ready we can begin the lesson.

After learning Cyclone Slash
I hope you don't think me too forward when I say that I consider you to be my child. Yes! When I saw you perform my Nail Art I felt a bond between us suddenly flash into existence!
You honour me beyond words, my pupil... Thank you.
After learning Great Slash
Sheo and I were very close when we trained together under the Great Nailsage. He often spoke of becoming tired of the Nail Arts and wanting to try something new.
After learning Dash Slash
So he is still alive then. Hm. I still haven't forgotten what he owes me and I never will.
Oh, I'm sorry. I shouldn't bother you with such things. I'm happy that you were able to train under another Nailmaster and grow stronger, my pupil.
After acquiring Nailmaster's Glory
Your achievements humble my own, my pupil. I myself have sworn never to lay eyes on the Nailsage again. Not until I have truly mastered his teachings.
But if you see him again, please... let him know that I am forever grateful.
Do you ever close your eyes and remember the years we spent together with Oro and our master? I like to think you do...
- According to the Nailmasters' dialogue, there seems to be bad blood between Mato and Oro. Their dialogue implies that Oro owes Mato something that he will never forget.
