* TanyaHuff's ''Quarters'' series has them all, as well, as a kind of NatureSpirit. They can be "sung" (controlled) by those with the proper elemental affinity. Most have only one or two affinities, but some rare individuals can control three or even all four kinds.

* Salamanders appear as fiery serpentine spirits in ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}''. One in-universe point of view on why no one sees the other three types of elementals is that they have all been corrupted by human pollution.

* In L. Jagi Lamplighter's ''ProsperosDaughter'' trilogy, at one point, one character sneers at Paracleus for having gnomes instead of oreads. Eramus explains that the original document had had oreads, and the Circle of Solomon had tampered with it to prevent that knowledge getting out -- you see, gnomes don't cause earthquakes. Other than that substitutions, they are the typical four.

* Appear in ''{{Drakengard}}'' as your allies' pact-creatures. Leonard gets a sylph (a SmallAnnoyingCreature), Arioch gets Undine and Salamander (who appear as a glowing blue/red orb respectively), but Seele gets a golem so huge its fists fill up the screen.
* Averted in ''GoldenSun'', where the elementals are called Djinn, {{Mon}}-like creatures with different appearances depending on their effect (in DarkDawn, the previous games gave them all the same appearance). However, the standard elementals (gnomes, salamanders, faeries and a merman) do appear as enemies.

Except for the [[FierySalamander Salamander]][[note]]See the Myths section for a detailled explanation on that one[[/note]], they first appeared in the alchemical works of Paracelsus. From there, these elementals took root in popular imagination, and frequently appear as a set representing their respective elements. They are the most common form of ElementalEmbodiment for the classical elements.
