Wow, I hadn’t noticed before, but when Korra goes into the Avattar state during the fight in “attle of Zaofu, a variant of Aang’s Avatar theme plays.

But, it’s not the usual six notes that’s like “daaa da na na da na” (wow, that’s horrible), it’s only the first four repeating.

It turns into its own LOK variant of the Aang theme, which I think is pretty subtle, but also appreciated. 

Instruments of Battle

This is a list of some of my favorite instrumental battle music!  stuck to only music used during fight scenes for this one.

This contains themes from Mulan, Pacific Rim, Precure, Undertale, Read or Die , ATLA, the Wonder Woman movie, Yona of the Dawn, Boku no Hero Academia, Sailor Moon, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, One Punch Man, Pokemon, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and The Legend of Korra.

Play on Playmoss

Most of the songs can also be found in the Instruments of Action list, though this list has quite a few new songs. 

And yep, Precure has some pretty hardcore fight music on occasion. Take a listen.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas coming to Nintendo Switch

In Starlink: Battle for Atlas, you’re part of a group of heroic interstellar pilots, dedicated to free the Atlas star system from the Forgotten Legends, an evil robot force. Starlink: Battle for Atlas offers a whole new gameplay experience: build your own modular Starship model, mount it on your controller, and take part in epic space combats. Equip your model with different parts and your Starship changes in game in real time. Assemble your fleet, mix and match your pilots, Starships and weapons to create your own play style and defeat the enemy.

FULLY CUSTOMIZE YOUR STARSHIP: THE CHOICE IS YOURS
Mix and match pilots, hulls, wings, and weapons to assemble your ideal starship with an unprecedented level of customization and creativity. Changes to your physical ship instantly appear in-game allowing you to immediately jump into the battle.

EXPLORE AN ENTIRE STAR SYSTEM
Travel seamlessly through the exotic alien worlds of the Atlas Star System. Each one of its planets has its own identity, ecosystem and wildlife. Be careful, as space is a hostile environment and will present many challenges. The world evolves depending on your actions and your choices. Everything you do has an impact on your journey, and enemies will react and fight back intelligently and take over the star system if you don’t stop them.

GET CREATIVE IN COMBAT
Build your unique play style. Experiment with different pilot abilities, weapon types, and status effects to discover and unleash devastating combos upon your enemies and overcome deadly challenges.

I killed Chin the Conqueror. A horrible tyrant, Chin was expanding his army to all corners of the continent. When they came to the neck of the peninsula where we lived, he demanded our immediate surrender. I warned him that I would not sit passively while he took our home. But he did not back down. On that day, we split from the mainland.

Avatar Day // Battle of Zaofu Parallels

Note: These are the superficial parallels between the events of Kyoshi’s final encounter with Chin the Great and Korra’s first encounter with Kuvira, the Great Uniter. Both are situationally similar, as Kuvira and Chin are both conquerors, but Kuvira is not Chin, just as Korra is not Kyoshi. Kyoshi is not at all hesitant to use the Avatar State to defeat her enemy, where Korra opts to use it as a last resort only. Similarly, Kyoshi kills Chin without hesitation, while Korra in her final encounter with Kuvira actively chooses not to do this. Kuvira and Kyoshi, however, are hugely similar in their willingness to go to extremes and in their motives. To make this clear, I left the last parallel from Kyoshi’s testimony for the end.

In many ways, Kuvira and Kyoshi are also two sides of the same coin, just as Korra and Kuvira are.
