Skylanders associated with the element of Earth manipulate the soil and the earth itself against their enemies. The color for this element is brown. Skylanders of the Earth Element are stronger against Tech, but are weak against Air Skylanders in the Battle Arena.
All Earth Skylanders can destroy rock formations with their attacks, and Prism Break, Flashwing, and Crusher can destroy Purple Tzo Crystals as well. After opening an Earth Gate, they move nearby floating rocks together to form a bridge.
In Giants, rock pillars act as gates to Earth elemental zones.
In their toy form, Earth-based Skylanders stand on a brown pedestal with crystals protuding from the sides.
