Land Umber is the Benevodon of Earth. It appears as a boss in Trials of Mana and takes the form of a monster made out of rocks. Though it is assumed to be sentient, Land Umber doesn't display any personality aside from a desire or instinct for destruction.

Background[edit | edit source]

Land Umber was described as being an "incarnation of disaster" that existed before the world had been fully born. It wrought destruction on existence until the Goddess of Mana defeated it with the Sword of Mana and sealed it away inside the Mana Stone of Earth.

Heroes of Mana[edit | edit source]

Land Umber is used as a summon in the main game like most of the other Benevodons. However, in bonus mission 42, it is mysteriously released from its stone. Gnome, Valda, Loki, and Belgar arrive on the scene and manage to take advantage of its newly risen state to force it back in the stone. Though everyone else is left in the dark on how the benevodon got out; it is revealed to the player that Land Umber was accidentally released by Belgar.

Release[edit | edit source]

When the villains in Trials of Mana obtain the Sword of Mana, they release the Benevodons from the Mana Stones. Once released, Land Umber remains near the former location of the Earth Mana Stone in Gemstone Valley Daria in order to build its strength in preparation for wreaking havoc across the land. As a result, the Benevodon becomes stronger depending on how many of its brethren the heroes have defeated before they challenge it.

Battle[edit | edit source]

When the heroes reach the end of the Gemstone Valley, Land Umber forms itself from the stones around the area and engages them.

As an Earth-elemental creature, Land Umber is weak to Wind-based attacks and magic. It is also healed by Earth-based attacks and magic.

  • In Trials of Mana, the musical theme played when battling Land Umber is titled "Rolling Cradle". It shares this musical theme with Bil & Ben and Belladonna.
