I chose Aang for this primarily because his journey has been completed. When compared to Korra’s journey so far, he had more at stake at a younger age, was placed under an impossible time limit, forced into things against his will and beliefs and did not let it break him. He found his own path through it all.
Both are pictured here out of fairness. Personally I believe the relationships in this show were kind of unnecessary and I’d have found it more refreshing had Korra remained happily single or at least dated someone outside the group.
Katara easily tops this list for me despite me liking almost every single character from the show. Her growth throughout the series was tremendous and I loved seeing her master waterbending at such a young age. Her mature attitude contrasted the rest of the group well and caused her to really stand out for me.
I think it’d be near impossible for me not to choose Toph for this. Everything about her is incredible. Toph was able to master earthbending so young to a point that it compensated for her blindness. I love her unique mantis form of fighting and I find her earth bending forms so aesthetically pleasing. Toph has such a strong personality as well, in that she doesn’t care what people think about her and I really admire her. Plus she invented metalbending.
I don’t know if I was just feeling super emotional at the time but the whole ending of the first season of Legend of Korra made me cry. Both in happiness and sadness. This post is for the latter. Both sequences were handled so beautifully and contained a lot of emotion. It made me tearbend.
Clearly I took a side and chose Kataang. This doesn’t mean I dislike Zutara, but I am pro canon. Sure I didn’t fully agree with some aspects of this relationship but I liked how it developed over the series, and think it’s adorable they stayed together to the end.
This was a tie between Asami and Sokka. Both are amazing characters in their own way and are worthy of much admiration. They overcame the handicap set by being non-benders and became irreplaceable components of their respective groups.
I chose Bloodbending because it is the darkest and most versatile of all subsets, in my opinion. Its multiple uses only hinted at on the show for fear of content too mature for children and that only makes me love this idea even more. It’s rare a kids show gets this dark.
This is like choosing which piece of a pie is your favorite when you could have the whole pie. I love these kids each for their own reasons. They work so well as a team when they get the chance, and never fail to deliver great humor. So I pick them all. End of story.
Zuko’s ship was a vessel for his extreme anger and a haven to nurse his honor wounds. It was smaller and older than all the other Fire Nation ships and the fact he had it at all was an insult to him. I was glad when it exploded.
The Agni Kai between Zuko and Azula during the finale. The drama, intensity, contrast, emotion, and animation were all astounding and brought the series to a new level of art. Runners up for this category are the season three fight between Katara and Hama, and the fight between Korra, Lin and the Equalists on the roof of the stadium.
Sokka is an obvious favorite for funniest character. An interesting thing I’ve noticed upon reviewing the humor of the series is that a lot of it is shared in group or pair situations. Though Sokka does have a great sense of humor and quick wit. His humor is very much an integral part of the show’s humor overall.
