Palworld features a wide range of Ground Pals, with some excelling in combat and others mining resources efficiently. To help you make the right choice, here’s a list of the best Ground Pals for combat as well as bases in Palworld.

Palworld features hundreds of Pals that belong to nine types. These types are very crucial as they impact combat and determine the tasks your Pals will be able to carry out on the bases.

Just like most Fire Pals are masters of Kindling and Water Pals effortlessly water your plantations, Ground Pals are usually the best for mining. In combat, Ground Pals are also the best counters to most Electric Pals, and the latter comprises some of the best attackers in the game.

On that note, let’s take a look at the best Ground Pals in Palworld, including a tier list ranking all Pals from the type best to worst.

SAnubis, Warsect, Menasting

Best Ground type Pals in Palworld

5. Robinquill Terra

Robinquill Terra in Palworld
Robinquill Terra is the Ground variant of Robinquill.
  • Paldeck: No. 048B
  • Where to find:
    • Found in the desert region on the eastern end of the map.
    • Breed Robinquill and Fuddler.
  • Partner Skill: Hawk Eye – While fighting together, you deal more damage to enemy weak points.
  • Work Suitability: Handiwork (Lv. 2), Lumbering (Lv. 1), Medicine Production (Lv. 1), Transporting (Lv. 2), and Gathering (Lv. 2)
  • Food: 3/10
  • Possible Drops: Wheat Seeds and Arrows
  • Skills: Sand Blast, Wind Cutter, Focus Shot, Stone Blast, Sand Tornado, Solar Blast, Rock Lance

Although Robinquill Terra cannot mine resources in Palworld, it’s hard to ignore its brilliant work suitability. Even in combat, Solar Blast and Rock Lance are two of the most powerful moves in the game that can easily shred any opponent.

Grass counters Ground but Robinquill Terra is also a Grass type Pal which negates the type advantage.

4. Digtoise

Digtoise in Palworld.
Digtoise can be hard to find in the open world.
  • Paldeck: No. 67
  • Where to find:
    • Found at the northeastern end of the map’s desert region.
    • Breed Nox and Penking, Mossandra and Tanzee/Floppie, Woolipop and Penking,/Cinnamoth, or Killamari and Nitewing.
  • Partner Skill: Drill Crusher – Performs Shell Spin and mines ore at a very quick pace.
  • Work Suitability: Mining (Lv. 3)
  • Food: 5/10
  • Possible Drops: Ore and High-Quality Pal Oil
  • Skills: Aqua Gun, Stone Blast, Shell Spin, Stone Cannon, Sand Tornado, Aqua Burst, Rock Lance.

Digtoise isn’t the strongest Palworld creature for combat, but by mining as quickly as Anubis, it certainly compensates for it. On top of this, Mining is the only work this Pal knows, so you don’t have to worry about it getting distracted by other tasks in the base.

Despite the low attack, Digtoise has high defense and you can use it as a tank in battles.

3. Warsect

Warsect in Palworld.
Warsect can be used to get powerful Pals through breeding.
  • Paldeck: No. 92
  • Where to find:
    • Found as a level 30 Pal right beside the Goblin’s Turf waypoint.
    • Hatches from Huge Rocky Egg.
    • Breed Elizabee and Pyrin, Mossanda and Menasting/Lyleen, Woolipop and Penking,/Cinnamoth, or Menasting/Relaxaurus Lux and Nitewing.
  • Partner Skill: Hard Armor – When fighting together, the Pal applies fire damage to player attacks and increases player defense.
  • Work Suitability: Planting (Lv. 3), Handiwork (Lv. 1), Lumbering (Lv. 3), Transporting (Lv. 3)
  • Food: 7/10
  • Possible Drops: Honey
  • Skills: Wind Cutter, Seed Machine Gun, Stone Blast, Stone Cannon, Giga Horn, Solar Blast, Rock Lance.

Warsect is easily one of the best Pals in Palworld, let alone Ground type. It boasts one of the highest HP and DEF stats in the game and interestingly, most of the end-game bosses aren’t effective against it so you can use it as a tank while capturing them. With the right attacks, it can also take care of the offense in such hard battles.

2. Menasting

Menasting in Palworld.
There are three Wildlife Sanctuaries in Palworld full of rare creatures.
  • Paldeck: No. 99
  • Where to find:
    • Found in the Pal Endangered Zone 2.
  • Partner Skill: Steel Scorpion – Increases player defense when fighting together and Electric Pals drop more items when killed.
  • Work Suitability: Lumbering (Lv. 2) and Mining (Lv. 3)
  • Food: 7/10
  • Skills: Sand Blast, Poison Blast, Shadow Burst, Stone Cannon, Nightmare Ball, Rock Lance, Dark Laser
  • Possible Drops: Coal and Venom Gland

Getting a Menasting in Palworld is quite difficult but worth all the risk. Be it mining or collecting wood, this Pal will be one of the best workers in your base, and moves like Rock Lance and Dark Laster are truly explosive during battles.

Even in boss battles, Menasting’s defense buff is critical for your survival, and using it against Electric bosses will make farming resources a breeze.

1. Anubis

Anubis in Palworld
Anubis is one of the fastest working for base work in Palworld.
  • Paldeck: No. 100
  • Where to find:
  • Partner Skill: Guardian of the Desert – Applies Ground to player damage
  • Work Suitability: Handiwork (Lv.4), Mining (Lv. 3), and Transporting (Lv.2)
  • Food: 6/10
  • Skills: Stone Blast, Power Bomb, Sand Tornado, Spinning Roundhouse, Forceful Charge, Ground Smash, Rock Lance
  • Possible Drops: Bone, Large Pal Soul, Innovative Technical Manual

Anubis is the best Ground Pal in Palworld by far. Based on the Egyptian god, this Pal lives up to its name by being the fastest base worker and a nightmare to face in battles. Even for mining and transporting, it is one of the most reliable Pals that you can realistically acquire during the mid-game through breeding.

Anubis’ stats are high enough to make him a top-tier Pal regardless of type, and it has access to the best Ground-type moves as well. Through breeding, you can aim to get an Anubis with the best passive skills and it is bound to make your journey a lot easier.
