** From the same part, we have the stand Judgment, which has the ability to manipulate earth into convincing duplicates of any matter or object. Rather than attacking directly with dirt or sand, as is typical for those falling under this trope, it uses this ability to... pretend to be a JackassGenie, complete with barnacle-encrusted lamp.

** The most major difference between the two types, in gameplay terms, is that Ground attacks focus on the opponent touching the ground, therefore Flying types (or Pokemon with the Levitate ability) NoSell Ground attacks. On the other hand, Rock attacks tend to focus on using rocks as projectiles, therefore they are very effective against Flying types.

Earth users can be [[HurricaneOfPuns down to earth, rock solid, and slow to act but with a lot of momentum once they finally get rolling]]. If the FiveManBand has {{elemental powers}}, TheBigGuy will usually have this. In a FourTemperamentEnsemble, this character is likely to be Melancholic. Can be found on the BoisterousBruiser or other types of jolly and large {{Blood Knight}}s or {{Proud Warrior Race Guy}}s. If female, they may be motherly characters due to the extension of the "Earth Mother" archetype (Gaia of Greek myth fits the archetype and is an example of this trope). Sometimes the [[PersonalityPowers stock personality]] is inverted by making the character [[GlacierWaif physically small]] or [[TheStoic quiet and introverted]] instead of a big, loud, guy.

* Earthbenders in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' control most stone and sediment-derived things. While it is most often stylized as telekinetic martial arts shaping and moving stone as attacks and defense, the strongest benders can even levitate giant boulders through the air. Most Earthbenders also exhibit an innate level of invulnerability to blunt force trauma, though [[ElementalArmor forging literal rock armor]] around themselves is a technique several advanced benders use (usually against Firebenders).\\
In both series, earthbending has two subtypes: [[ExtraOreDinary metal]] and [[MagmaMan lava]], both of which pratically unknown throughout the world's history and invented within the series' storyline. The former relies on manipulating "impurities" within metal, so it was discovered by a blind earthbender who relied on earth vibrations instead of sight. The latter is difficult for unspecified reasons, and was historically only used by the Avatar (who, having all four elements at his/her disposal, can heat things faster with [[PlayingWithFire firebending]]), but in ''[[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Korra]]'' the earthbenders Ghazan and [[spoiler:Bolin]] found a way to melt rocks. Some fans theorize that, with the latter at least, it may have something to do with his mixed heritage; his father was from the Earth Kingdom capital city-state, while his mother was a descedent of the original Fire Nation colonists. Others theorize that it relies on the same techniques [[MakingASplash waterbenders]] use to change their element between a liquid and a solid.

* Hazel Levesque from TheHeroesOfOlympus series has this as one of her main powers. She's powerful enough to dig tunnels big enough for three people or cause earthquakes if she chooses.
* Golem of the ''SeekersOfTruth''. Down side: it comes with skin like rough concrete. Up side: she can make really awesome sand castles. Interestingly, she is also a CuteMonsterGirl.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Earth is one of the basic ElementalPowers in the shinobi countries; users include Yamato, who combines it with [[MakingASplash water]] to let him control [[GreenThumb wood]], and Kakuzu, who can turn his skin rock hard for defense and attack. Not surprisingly, the Hidden Stone Village tends to produce ninja who specialize in this: [[MadArtist Deidara]] creates moving sculptures made of explosive clay; the Third Tsuchikage can combine it with [[BlowYouAway Wind]] and [[PlayingWithFire Fire]] to make Dust, which is basically a DisintegratorRay; and his bodyguards Akatsuchi and Kurotsuchi can respectively create stone golems and combine earth with fire to create quicklime.

* The Quiet People in ''[[Literature/RiversOfLondon Whispers Underground]]''. Peter, always quick with a pop-culture reference, actually calls them earthbenders, although under ''Rivers of London'' magic rules, it's more likely they're using the standard "moving stuff about" spell, and the focus on earth is just personal preference.
