  • Mud Control
  • Mudbending


User can create, shape and manipulate mud, a mixture of water and some combination of soil, silt, and clay, which harden over geological time to form sedimentary rock such as shale or mudstone. Mud that is mostly clay, or a mixture of clay and sand may be used for ceramics, of which one form is the common fired brick, or dried with the inclusion of straw reinforcing to form an unfired adobe brick.






  • May be unable to create mud, being limited to manipulating only from already existing sources.
  • Distance, mass, precision, etc. depend upon of the knowledge, skill, and strength of the user, and their power's natural limits.
  • Unless specifically treated, mud is sensitive to moisture and very weak against water-based attacks.
