* '''[[BlowYouAway Air/Wind]]:''' The element of change and movement; unpredictably calm one moment and flying into a tempest the next. [[FragileSpeedster The quickest of the elements, but sometimes seen as physically fragile]] or lacking in raw strength (unless it is referred to as "sky" or "heaven"). Therefore, what it lacks in raw power it makes up for in offensive and defensive maneuvers. It can also include WeatherManipulation. Aligned with the sanguine temperament, Air characters are often cheerful, energetic, free spirits. [[MakeMeWannaShout Noise]], when used as an elemental attack, is sometimes depicted and treated as an air-like attack. It can also sometimes feed energy to Fire, so an Air Mage working with a Fire Mage is not a team to tangle with. [[WindIsGreen Green is often used to represent it in eastern products]], but it's also fairly common to see Yellow, Light Blues, Purples, or White. Air typically corresponds to the gaseous state.

* '''[[CoveredInMud Mud]]''': If MakingASplash + DishingOutDirt doesn't result in GreenThumb, it will result into this, which, admittedly, is far more logical. The user might be a BlobMonster, or just a general [[ThePigPen pig]]. As for the power itself, it can be thought as a more fluid earth, with a bigger focus on the sinking to death aspect.

* '''[[DishingOutDirt Earth]]:''' Stable and resilient, earth is the element of solidity and support. Earth characters are frequently dependable, strong, protective and, if female, motherly; on the negative side they may also be stubborn, repressive, or just far too stuck in their ways. As such, it is aligned with the melancholic temperament. It is frequently [[MightyGlacier the strongest element, but also the slowest]] or it's good at defensive magic, but not in offensive depending on the writer. Generally represented as by either the color Green, Brown, Orange, Tan, or Yellow (the latter four especially if [[DishingOutDirt actual earth]] is distinguished from [[GreenThumb plants]] or other stuff). This is the "element" corresponding to the solid state.
* '''[[PlayingWithFire Fire]]:''' Has positive connotations like warmth, light, [[FirePurifies purification]], and even rebirth. On the flip side, it's very, very easy to {{exaggerate|d}} it into [[EvilIsBurningHot an antagonistic element]] by emphasizing its wild, destructive, and unpredictable nature. As it is aligned with the choleric temperament, fire characters have a habit of being impulsive, hotheaded, and brash. As such they make a great RedOni to any BlueOni and are typically TheHero, TheLancer or an [[TheDragon important]] [[BigBad bad guy.]] More rarely they can be TheSmartGuy as the ability to make and manipulate fire in Real Life is often seen as the being first step towards "inventing" science. [[FireIsRed Usually associated with the color Red]] and [[ColorCodedCharacters Red Rangers]], even though it is naturally more Orange in color, if not outright Gold/Yellow. This is the "element" corresponding to either the plasma state or to [[HeatIndex heat energy]].

* '''[[MakingASplash Water]]:''' The element of change and adaptability; capable of taking any form. Water is pretty much always seen positively, symbolizing {{healing|Hands}}, adaptability, and [[TheStoic calm]]. While earth is strong and solid and air is weak but fluid, water is both strong and fluid, but not to the same extent as the other two. This is analogous to the liquid state of matter, insofar as liquids have a definite volume as solids do, but lack a definite form just like gasses.[[note]]Gasses have neither definite form nor volume, Solids have both definite form and volume.[[/note]] Aligned with the phlegmatic temperament, water characters are usually laid-back and "go with the flow". [[WaterIsBlue Usually depicted as Blue or Cyan.]] Although not thought of as much of a combat power, when roused a Water Mage can be unstoppable and [[ConfusionFu unpredictable]] -- especially combined with Wind (think ''Hurricanes.'') Almost always the absolute BlueOni, and often TheHeart.

Some shows that absolutely need a FiveManBand will come up with a [[ElementNumberFive fifth element]] in addition to the classical western ones, and find a way to make it a team attack that uses AllYourColorsCombined. Anime usually employs Light or Lightning, but Western Animation prefers to make something up like [[PureEnergy Energy]] or [[KiAttacks Spirit]] or possibly [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway heart]].

* '''[[ShockAndAwe Lightning/Electricity]]''' is sometimes paired with air or fire, but more often is considered a separate form of power. In most games, it forms the [[FireIceLightning basic trio]] of available powers. Lightning usually carries the same connotations as fire, but may also include speed (i.e. "moves like lightning"), [[AntiArmor penetration]] or [[PsychoElectro mild insanity (from having fried his brain too many times)]], [[LightningCanDoAnything or even more]]. Like fire it's sometimes an ability of TheSmartGuy as [[{{Technopath}} controlling and conducting electricity]] is integral to [[GadgeteerGenius modern day gadgets.]] Usually depicted as either [[YellowLightningBlueLightning very yellow or very blue]], although in real life it's actually more often white.
* '''[[AnIcePerson Ice/Snow]]:''' may or may not be combined with water or air. As a [[AnIcePerson separate element]], it carries connotations of [[EvilIsDeathlyCold coolness, detachment, harshness]], and even [[KillItWithIce death]]. As a foil to fire they tend to be TheLancer or villains, and play Blue Oni to anyone's Red. [[FireIceLightning Like the rest of its trio]] it can be TheSmartGuy, likely because [[GreatBigLibraryOfEverything old monasteries, libraries and places of learning]] are known for being cold inside. [[ProudScholarRaceGuy They'll be scholarly, by the book smart guys]] however instead of [[ShockAndAwe techies]] or [[PlayingWithFire curious types.]] Snow is almost the same as Ice generally but carries connotations of fun, softness, cheerfulness, and even [[SnowMeansLove love]].

* '''[[MagmaMan Lava]]:''' May overlap with fire due to both being hot substances, even though it's molten rock, so if anything it should be part of earth. Sometimes it's both, as a hybrid of Earth and Fire. Usually stresses the more negative connotations of fire, and may be considered "hellish".
* '''[[ThePowerOfTheSun Sol/Sun]]:''' Power relating to the sun. It's usually something of a mix of [[PlayingWithFire Fire]] and [[LightEmUp Light]]. May involve gravity, as well.

* '''[[PsychicPowers Psychic Force]]:''' Power relating to the mind. The power either plays with other people's minds, or [[MindOverMatter causing direct effect on their surroundings.]] Frequently opposed by the pure magic power (above) as an expression of "Magic vs. Science" (as this power sounds more sci-fi), or sometimes the heart (again, as Logic vs. Emotion). It can involve other elements as well.

* '''[[SuperSmoke Smoke/Gas]]''': The ability to control a cloudy-looking element like smoke, mist or some other gaseous substance. While this kind of power has limited capabilities at dealing direct damage, it can still be effectively used in combat by suffocating enemies or hiding oneself from view for a potential sneak attack. The associations tend to be pretty negative as smoke or gas rarely signal something good (fires, eruptions, imminent explosions, health risks caused by smoking, gas chambers, etc), thus they could be considered the DarkerAndEdgier form of [[BlowYouAway Air]]. Mist is not much better due to its presence in [[OminousFog mysteries, hauntings and supernatural phenomena in general]]. Often becomes a subset of Fire or Poison (or Water/Ice, in the case of mist), but it might also show up as its own thing.

* '''{{Hellfire}}''': Usually a suped-up version of fire, with negative, demonic, and dark connotations. Expect it to not obey the usual laws of physics of regular fire.
