Skylanders Wiki
“May the strength of earth, steel and iron be with us! We're tough as rocks!”
    —Ring of Heroes Relationship Description

Earth is one of the ten elements in the Skylanders series. The most solid and dependable of all Elements that make up the Core of Light, Earth interacts with the other Elements in some very unique ways.[1] This element is associated with the color brown and its many shades.


What does Earth make us think of? Rocks, soil, dry, dusty landscapes? Maybe. But the Earth element has much more to it than that, and Skylanders who draw on its power are a real force to be reckoned with. Whether causing earthquakes, projecting energy beams through crystal or swimming through rock, Earth Skylanders have all manner of tricks at their disposal for battling evil.

Even now we have only just began to explore the vast mysterious world beneath our feet. Many creatures aligned with Earth are rare and fantastic beasts, from Rock Golems to Dirt Sharks.[2]

When Earth Portal Masters were taken from their homeworld into Skylands, Portal Master George became the Earth specialist.


Skylanders associated with the element of Earth in this game manipulate the soil and the earth itself against their enemies. These Skylanders are weak to Air and strong against Tech in the Battle Arena. In Skylanders: Ring of Heroes, Earth is strong against Water and Tech, and weak against Air and Undead.

In their toy form, Earth-based Skylanders also stand on a brown pedestal with crystals protruding from the sides.

All Earth Skylanders can destroy rock formations with their attacks, and some of them can destroy purple Tzo Crystals as well. After opening an Earth Gate, they move nearby floating rocks together to form a bridge.

In the turret sections of Skylanders: Trap Team, Earth Skylanders can use the ability Stone Storm, which summons a giant boulder in the targeted area. In Kaos Doom Challenge, they can summon a rock with crystals erupting from it that fire lasers. It can be upgraded to have more crystal outcrops for focused shots and floating support crystals.

In Skylanders: SuperChargers, Earth-aligned Portal Master Powers include a protective barrier of stones, turning enemies to stone, and gaining a temporary Armor boost. Those are distributed in several conditions, and the names are as follows:

  • Stony Barrier - Earth Skylanders get a protective barrier of stones in an Earth Zone.
  • Stony Entrance - Earth Skylanders turn enemies to stone when summoned.
  • Gorgon Strike - Earth Skylander attacks have a chance to turn enemies to stone.
  • Earthen Guard - A chance for Earth Skylanders hit in an Earth Zone to gain a temporary Armor boost.
  • Rocky Desperation - Earth Skylanders get a protective barrier of stones when their health is low.

Battlecast Spell Cards

Earth spells are a combination of great damage and great energy. Being able to create extra crystals, they are able to use stronger abilities before their opponent, and those abilities, though costly, are a force to be reckoned with, from increasing a character's power to raw damage dealt to both frontline and sidelines.

The scrapped Earth team spell for this are the Bonds of Earth, which increase the health of the active ally by bonding it with the ground for each Earth character on the team.

Quicksand Rock Solid Hurling Boulder

Snare the active enemy. Give it -30 power until your next turn.
