"Earth attacks are mighty strong against, er... foes that are close to the ground, I guess."
―Matt upon using Tremor, Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Earth is one of the recurring elements in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It is mainly associated with rocks and the ground, but develops some connections with plants in later games; these skills tend to focus on woody roots or logs, as opposed to Bio's vines and leaves.

Since Epic Battle Fantasy 4, Earth has gained an association with Tired and Stagger.

Characteristics

Earth is a semi-common element in the Epic Battle Fantasy series; it is particularly common among enemies, but relatively scarce on the player's side. Matt and Anna are generally the only ones who can learn Earth skills naturally, although they only actually learn a single series of skills outside of Limit Breaks.

Despite its relative rarity as a skill, Earth is fairly common among weapons; EBF4 and 5 generally have two or three Earth-based weapons per character. The main exception is Lance, who had no Earth-based guns in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and only one in subsequent games; however, he has two Earth weapons in the Equip Remix Custom Game of EBF5.

Earth tends to be effective against nature, thunder, and ice-based enemies, as well as foes that come out of the ground. Conversely, it is ineffective against flying and armored/robotic foes, as well as some enemies with a strong Earth affinity themselves.

In Epic Battle Fantasy 4, several Earth attacks can inflict Tired, Stagger, or Stun; between the Battle Mountain update and the v2 update, the latter status also boosted elemental Earth damage. In Epic Battle Fantasy 5, Earth attacks do more damage against Heavy targets and less against Light targets.
