* 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.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', Atronachs are a type of unaligned [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] which are essentially the {{Elemental Embodiment}}s of the elements they represent. The most common are the [[FireIceLightning Flame (also known as "Fire"), Frost, and Storm]] varieties, but others exist as well. One type are the Stone Atronachs, who possess this power. The [[OurElvesAreBetter Altmeri]] Clan Direnni of High Rock once summoned an "army" of them to build a massive prison out of rubble in a single day.

** ''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.
