Earthbending is one of the four main bending arts from the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. It is the ability to manipulate natural earth substances. While rock is the primary and universal earthbending material, over the years, masters of the art have developed sub-skills involving the bending of metal, sand, and lava.
According to the Nickelodeon series, earth is the element of substance. The people of the Earth Kingdom are diverse, strong, and enduring – characteristics that we’ve seen in some of the Avatar and Korra‘s most popular and skilled earthbenders, like Toph Beifong, King Bumi, Lin Beifong, and Bolin.
Previously, I rounded up the best waterbending GIFs so that, whenever I felt like copying the moves in the privacy of my own bedroom, I’d have a single page to which I could refer. Well, finally, I’ve put together the same for fans of earthbending. Here are 58 of the best earthbending GIFs from Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko‘s Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.
For the sake of clarity, the following GIF library includes metalbending and lavabending, in addition to traditional earthbending.
