** ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' is sort of weird about this, in that it splits Earth-based powers into two separate categories, Rock and Ground. This is something of an [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness artifact from the first generation]]. The Rock-type attacks are solely involved with chucking stones and using it for a variety of uses while the Ground-type is a hodgepodge of different Earth powers like sand (Sand Tomb, Sandstorm), mud (Mud Slap, Mud Bomb), lava (Earth Power), bones (Bone Club, Bonemerang), tremors (Earthquake, Magnitude), [[ThisIsADrill drills]] (Drill Run), fissures (...[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Fissure]]), and travelling in it (Dig), among other abilities.

* From ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'', Tara Markov alias Terra true to her name. She can control and manipulate all forms of rock and earthly substances and materials. There is no set limit to how far or how close she needs to be to the earth for this power and ability to work. She has been able to be completely off the ground and still control the earth. She has created tremors, earthquakes, sharpen rocks to a needle point, and has control over these elements for as long as she can physically maintain them.

One of the ElementalPowers. A character with the power over '''[[color:#662211:earth]]'''. Despite being the least used of the classical elemental powers in [[TheProtagonist protagonists]] ("earth" powers usually manifest as the more nurturing and proactive GreenThumb) there are many things one can do with Earth. Earth users may be able to cause earthquakes, rockslides or split the earth itself and crush their opponent between two slabs of crust or drop their opponent into a fissure; use sand, rock, or mud as an extension of their body to create tentacles or other objects, encase themselves in a rock shield to avoid attack and many other possibilities.

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. 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.

** Pica, one of Doflamingo's top pirate members, can not only control earth and rocks but also assimilate himself into them, turning into gargantuan RockMonster. Once he merges with rocks it's also hard to actually hit him "inside" them, which he exploits to do sneak attacks. He's so powerful in his control that he can "become" [[GeniusLoci an entire castle or entire mountain]].
