“I am under your feet, but also touch the sky. When I move, buildings fall.”

Earth is one of the four main elements of Creation taught by Master Wu. It represents rock, dust, and other minerals of the ground. It corresponds with the Scythe of Quakes, the Earth Dragon, and the Elemental Earth Dragon, and is generally associated with the color black or brown.

When the Ninja were training Lloyd in Dareth's dojo, they discovered that Lloyd is capable of using all the elemental powers, including Earth, without the use of a Golden Weapon when Lloyd caused a fissure inside the dojo while chopping boards in half.

Notable uses


During a battle between the Elemental Alliance and the Anacondrai, the Master of Earth was manipulated by Chen to turn against his own and create a large rift in the earth that disoriented the members of the alliance.

The Greatest Fear of All

When the ninja break out of Kryptarium Prison Cole uses his quakes (Earthquake Generation) to break through the walls.

Users' abilities

  • Geokinesis/Terrakinesis - The user is able to manipulate and generate rocks, dust, and earth. They can also control massive amounts of the earth (for example a mountain). The user can change and manipulate any type of terrain (for example a mountain or a valley). The dust is mainly used to blind opponents.
    • Psammokinesis - Some users of this element can create, shape, and manipulate sand and dirt, commonly to trap enemies (As displayed by the Earth Elemental Blade).
    • Petrification - The users can immobilize enemies by covering them in a layer of earth, as shown by a Stone Warrior petrified by Lloyd.
    • Rock Manipulation - Users of this element can make rocks burst out of the ground.
    • Tectokinesis - Gives the user (possibly only a very powerful one), the ability to move tectonic plates, and generate fractures and chasm (as displayed by Garmadon's Mega Weapon).
      • Earthquake Generation - It can be used to cause earthquakes and fissures. Also, the user can create shaking tremors along surfaces (walls, ceilings, etc.) to create dust and dust particles to discover a hidden enemy. This ability can also be used to rupture the ground.
      • Shockwave Generation - The user has the ability to create giant shockwaves.
  • Superhuman Strength - Some users of Earth have demonstrated the ability to possess superhuman strength.
  • Superhuman Durability - Some Elemental Masters of Earth are able to withstand attacks better than an average person.
  • Geo-Thermokinesis - Some users of Earth may be able to generate or manipulate magma or lava.
  • Elemental shield - The user can create an Earth elemental shield.
  • Earth Wall - The user can make a wall completely made out of rock to block or stop incoming attacks.

Via the user's True Potential

  • Earth Mimicry - The user can temporarily transform their body completely into the earth.
  • Enhanced Super Strength - Enhances the user's strength, making them stronger than original super strength.

Higher-level powers

  • Earth Punch - The user can transform their arms into magma/molten rock and punch through anything, excluding Vengestone and corrupted Ice. This ability does not have a specific meaning as True Potential does, but rather it is simply a higher level of the Earth power. Cole is the first Master of Earth to have this ability and it is exclusive to the Earth element.


The symbol of Earth appears to be a gorilla, as seen on a few of Cole's gis. This likely represents Cole's strength.

Notable users


Golden Power




  • Despite the element being named as such, it has been pointed out in the show by the characters (specifically, the Cook in "Enkrypted" and Jay in "The Mask of Deception") that they do not know what "Earth" is, which implies that the planet on which Ninjago takes place is not called this.
    • However, the word is still used to refer to the ground or land in general, such as when Vania asks "What is it like to command the very earth?" and Cole says "I'm surrounded by earth" in "Into the Dark" and when Hazza D'ur says Vengestone is being mined "from the earth" in "The Skull Sorcerer."
    • It was later confirmed by Tommy Andreasen that, within the world of Ninjago, "Earth" simply means dirt or soil and does not refer to the planet of Ninjago.[1]
  • Cole's elemental shield is pure black and gray energy, with no hint of the brown, green, or orange colors seen in his other elemental abilities.
  • It's possible that the powers of Earth and Fire could be combined to create magma.[2]
  • According to The Book of Elemental Powers, sand is included as part of the element of Earth.
  • Kruncha and Chopov are affiliated with Earth in promotional material and the Ninjago Spinners game, though this is non-canon.
  • While Lloyd was shown to move mountains in "Blackout" and had the element of Earth at the time, this ability was due to his Golden Power.[3]
  • Earth is also an Element in LEGO Bionicle.


The images on Earth need to be organized.
