In much of Golarion, people consider all matter to be composed of four basic elements, or forms of elemental energy, or elemental forces—air, earth, fire, and water. Elemental creatures are outsiders that are created from these elements and reside in one of the four Elemental Planes associated with each element:
- Elemental Plane of Air has air elementals
- Elemental Plane of Earth has earth elementals
- Elemental Plane of Fire has fire elementals
- Elemental Plane of Water has water elementals
Elements mix at the borders between Elemental Planes. The secondary elements formed at these planar points of friction can cause create elemental outsiders. Elemental energy can also be concentrated into planar power components.

People of Minkai believe five elements exist: Earth, Fire, Void, Water, and Wind. Void energy forms from the friction between Elemental Planes and the Negative Energy Plane, with the Shojinawa manor serving as a focal point of this friction on Golarion.
An elemental augmentation is a type of wondrous item which permanently alters a portion of the recipient's body by infusing it with elemental energy. An augmented body part is forever altered; the elemental augmentation remains until the body part is removed, which can have some unfortunate side effects. Elemental augmentations come with some powerful advantages, but also carry some corresponding weaknesses, though these latter tend not to be too debilitating.
