She also has a deep link with nature even by her race's standards, allowing her to manipulate massive amounts of earth with ease, fighting on a scale surpassing almost every other character in the series.
Weaknesses: None notable
Creation (創造, Sōzō): This ability, which is exclusive to members of the Giant Clan who have a deep connection with nature, this power enables Diane to raise the ground in the form of towers, to bend iron as if "it is made of toffee", and, by making certain hand symbols, to also turn minerals in the ground into sand. The wielder is also able to turn their body into metal, thus increasing their mass and enabling them to use the resulting increased gravitational force in attacks.
- Sand Whirl (砂の渦, Suna no Uzu): After performing some hand signs, Diane touches the ground with her knuckles, converting it into sand. The whirling sands then pull down her opponent, burying them.
- Heavy Metal (重金属, Jūkinzoku): Diane hardens her body into metal, which increases her weight and defensive capabilities.
- Mother Catastrophe (大地の怒号, Daichi no Dogō): The earth is torn apart with a single strike of Diane's sacred treasure, Gideon. The debris, from the strike, is launched high into the air and gathered to form a massive mountain like structure that falls towards the ground and crushes anything caught in it's wake. This technique was powerful enough to cause the destruction of an entire town.
- Ground Gladius (大地の剛剣, Daichi no Gōken): Gideon is slammed into the ground, raising the earth up into a sharp, gigantic spire with the appearance of a blade. The attack instantly dispelled the combined technique Dragon Castle, and was so large it could be seen from across the capital.
- Double Hammer (双拳, Sōken): As she is spinning Gideon behind her back, Diane summons two stone fists from the ground on both sides of her opponent. She then performs a hand sign to crush the target between them.
- Rising Meteor (昇天隕石, Shōten Inseki): Diane raises Gideon high above her head, erecting an enormous star-shaped pillar from below her opponent. The pillar hits the target at an incredible speed, the force of which traps them against the pillar as it extends toward the sky.
- Rush Rock (千の礫, Sen no Tsubute): Diane uses her power to raise a number of jagged rocks from the ground. These rocks are then rapidly fired at her opponent.
- Fillet and Loin ( 双子の巨像, Futago no Kyozō; literally meaning "Twin Colossi"): After performing multiple hand signs, Diane summons a pair of golems, Fillet and Loin, to pummel her enemy.
- Friends (土人形, Tsuchi Ningyō; literally meaning "Earth Doll"): Diane creates golems in the likenesses of Hawk, Elizabeth Liones, Meliodas, Matrona, and King, although some details are wrong. Because of her emotional connection to the originals, these golems are more complete and stronger than Fillet and Loin.
- Crazy Rush「乱撃衝クレイジーラッシュ Ran Gekishō (Kureijī Rasshu)」: Diane summons an array of massive earthen fists to pummel her target.
