* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', Cinder's Semblance (her superpower) is the ability to manipulate glass and sand. Most notably, she can't manipulate ''dirt''; it specifically has to be molten before she can control it. Once the glass is molten she can then freeze it into projectiles or weapons that are strengthened by her Aura to make them stronger than metal. Once she acquires the Fall Maiden's powers, which include control over heat, cold, lighting, and wind, she uses the power to control fire to instantly melt sand into glass and shape it into weapons, or melt the weapons to break them apart and reshape them.

* Lorelei "Badger" Linden in ''VisualNovel/VillainousNights'' controls rock, with the blunt and no-nonsense personality to match. In addition to making barriers and disrupting enemies' footing, she often covers her fists with stone to add weight to her punches in combat.

** And on the game's Villain side we have signature super-villain, [[BeingEvilSucks Sciocco]], notable in that he literally uses dirt to do his dirty-work via sand-storm conjuration.

* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' has Malphite, a sentient rock who can steal movement speed by throwing a shard of rock at an enemy, punch enemies or burrow under the ground and [[FoeTossingCharge send enemies flying.]]
** The League now also has Taliyah, the Stoneweaver who fits the traditional earthbender concept much more closely. Her primary spells include surfing on rocks to gain movement speed, shooing the enemy with stone shards and knocking them back with small cliffs; while her ultimate creates a physical wall across the map that she can ride on top of.

* Earthbenders in ''Franchise/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' control most stone and sediment-derived things. It is most often seen as a form of telekinetic martial arts that shapes and moves stone to attack and defend, with the strongest earthbenders capable of casually levitating 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 earthbenders use.
** In both [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender the original show]] and ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', earthbending has two subtypes: [[ExtraOreDinary metalbending]] and [[MagmaMan lavabending]]. The former was unknown for most of history until it was invented in the original show; it relies on manipulating "impurities" within metal, so it was discovered by a blind earthbending prodigy 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 later [[spoiler:Bolin]] can melt rocks, presumably through a technique similar to the one [[MakingASplash waterbenders]] use to change their element between a liquid and a solid.

** 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.
