Purebred earth dragons are the strongest and heaviest of this list, and their appearance varies depending on their talent. Most are flightless and have razor-like teeth and intense crushing power. Their forelegs may be short or even useless, while their hindlegs can withstand tremendous pressure. They are often covered in stone and crystals and are capable of burrowing in an instant using their immense strength and elemental magic to break into the earth. They often hunt by crushing their prey with their jaws or feet after emerging from the ground, and they can use their tail like a battering ram if they feel threatened. It is rare for an earth dragon to feel fear because they are so massive—they are easily the largest land-dwelling dragons of them all. They enjoy using their strength to its maximum and how they use it is a reflection of their Rider. Their bodies, especially their crests, resemble the forms of ancient dinosaurs.

They choose Riders who have a similar desire to gain or show off their strength. Due to the discipline that body training normally takes, their Riders are often responsible and their dragons are set to work in quarries, farms, mines, construction, or other occupations which require heavy lifting. They impart great strength to their Riders, who often gain a fair bit of muscle themselves. An earth dragon that has bonded with a more sinister person or a show-off can run rampant and injure many others. For this reason, earth Riders and their dragons are sent to train with other earth Riders until they and their dragon are certified for unsupervised work.
Known Rider Attributes:
- Hard Worker
- Fast Learner
*Riders never have all attributes at the same time.
On top of being physically adept, Earth dragons can concentrate their power to make themselves a monstrous force. To a lesser extent, they can diminish the strength of their foes. Both Riders and dragons have an innate combat ability and enhanced reflexes that only become more apparent as the dragon uses more magic. Particularly strong Dragons and Riders can unlock a feral mindset that helps them battle on pure instinct without being hindered by emotion.
Earth dragons can generate dust and stone from thin air. They can manipulate rocks and crystals, which makes burrowing through the ground a quick and simple process. On top of manipulating dirt and stone, they can snack on them like rock candy whenever they want. Both Riders and dragons get familiar with dentists because of this. Due to their somewhat simple natures compared to other dragons, they are able to communicate with creatures slightly less than sentient. This includes wildlife like birds, deer, and wolves.
On top of the general Tier IV magic effects, your dragon can have these traits. This is only available to dragons with Tier IV Earth magic or Elemental Anomaly. Feel free to get creative and use things outside of this list.
- Crystalline Growths
- Parts Melting Into Sand
- Club Tail
BASE COAT RULES
Their scales are invariably a dark green, but the color of the dirt in the area will tint them over time or even form a solid barrier around the dragon. The end result is a dragon that looks like red clay, gray clay, brown dirt, yellow sand, and similar such colors. Feel free to take inspiration from natural dirt hues. When these dragons take a dip in the water, their normal colors might melt off as mud and show a bit of the green underneath! Their colors quickly return to normal once they have a good dust bath.
