@arcus true, but non avatar state aang did manage to block a sozin's comet boosted ozai's lightning and make an earth-sphere that tanked multiple shots from him no problem. i dont think korra can break through aang's defence

Is that what he's doing in the picture? Seems inconsistent for lightning

True, but Aang's not gonna win by curling up and hiding

@arcus yeah, ozai shoots lightning and the rock top (the one above the ploom of dust coming up) is aang using earthbending to block the lighting.

its true that aang wont win soly by being defensive, but it shows that korra wont be able to get through to aang to damage him, and he can wait it out until korra gets tired or until he sees an opening to strike

Interesting, I'll have to rewatch that, considering Aang's shields have failed against weaker attacks-like after he redirected the lightning

I'll go with Korra. Aang mainly used earthbending defensively and he can't be on the defensive forever.

Ozai was far more aggressive with fire-bending than Korra has ever shown. Aang isn't particularly the aggressive type or one to fight, but he does what he needs to and his earth bending is powerful. Considering this sits outside the walls of Ba Sing Se, I feel like Aang has a massive chance to overwhelm her.

Good match. I can see this going either way but I think Aang would edge out a win 5.5-6/10.

Aang. he's a bit different with his earthbending using a lot more speed and versatility then we see from even Korra era benders. Korra's just strong in this instance and we haven't seen much creativity in comparison to Aang with the available elements.

Korra wins in a close fight. Aang has no real offensive feat with earth, and he can't wrap himself up in an earth sphere, he did it against ozai because his life was at stake, he was even thinking in the sphere, he has never used something like that against zuko or azula.

Aang's earthbending >> Korra's firebending.

@arcus said:

@redbird3rdboywonder: more like he blocked her hand. This was after she blasted through his earth shield

For one, aang was tired from working down the drill, it was shown at the start of his fight. And second, his earth shield had blocked her hits earlier. He was chucking away parts of it to attack her.

I'll go with Korra. Aang mainly used earthbending defensively and he can't be on the defensive forever.

And korra can't break through his defense - so she's not winning.

It's a matter of when he will go on the offensive really. And he does use earthbending offensively, he used it to take down ozai's ship, and later attack ozai, for example..

Aang was able to fight against a amped Ozai with earth bending for a little bit.

Most earthbenders use slow but powerful attacks

Aang is one of the few that does both that and speedy hits(mainly thanks to his great teacher Toph)

Korra tends to close un in her fights( see vs kuvira) and that will juat help the more agile, often rock-armored aang.

korra's firebending is good, but Aang has fought mainly great firebenders, so ahe ain't impressing him

aang takes this 7/10 imo

It could probably go either way, but If had to pick, I'd probably go with Aang. Korra's fightning style is very direct and can be quite predictable. Aang is versatile with Earth and can use seismic sense. At the same time, Azula was able to blast through Aang's crystal armour in the crystal catacombs. Korra could probably overwhelm him with her sheer power, similarly to what Azula did. Additionally, with morals, Aang is going to be less likely to attack Korra.

@nighthunder: most of Aang's agility feats involve his airbending, which he doesn't have here. Aang's rock armor isn't impenetrable

He's gone up against opponents that are more capable firebenders than Korra IMO.

Aang's earthbending feats of raw power beat out Korra's fire blasts by a good degree. He's also shown more versatility in the element whereas Korra usually sticks to fire blasts..she doesn't have many if any defensive options whereas Aang has plenty.

@black_of_shadow: @johnfrank120: any reasons? @juiceboks: Korra's got some pretty good feats of raw power, like the gif with the fish I posted above. The lack of defensive options is pretty characteristic of firebending in general, but it hasn't stopped firebenders from beating earthbenders

@princearagorn1: true, it did block some attacks, she broke it with a stronger attack. His earth shields also don't didn't hold up real well in the Crystal Catacombs

His shield was blocking blows from ozai in the final fight.

@arcus: Korra's firebending is great, in raw power it roughly matches Aang's earthbending, but Aang can also defend very well, his earth shields have barely been damaged by Ozai's Sozin's comet amped blast. The only reason many fire benders beat earth benders is because they have more raw power, but here it is not the case.

I'd argue that Korra doesn't consistently display that level of firebending in fights, whereas Aang's most powerful earthbending feats come from fighting other benders. This is the more standard level of firebending we see from Korra..

Korra firebending

..and even then like I said this is usually the full extent of her firebending usage. There are actually defensive techniques for firebending, Azula and Jeong Jeong taught us that. No element claims superiority over another, I'm just stating Korra has little to no defensive options other than to dodge Aang's earthbending whereas Aang can dodge and block. Giving him one of his few advantages.

I think Korra probably wins this. Not easily, but she seemed to be better with fire than Aang was with earth, and she's more experienced, in some ways, and more offensive in combat than Aang. Aang is a tricky little guy to hit, but without air to help him he's a much easier target.

@arcus: Aang to me was just always an overall better fighter. Korra's good, just aang has the normal airbending tactics to fall back on which suit him quite well in situations.

earth beats fire here...

fire is only offensive while earth can be both used for offense and defense.

Plus what was said somewhere above, korra is too wildly aggressive, which won't do much against Aangs defensive style... all Aang needs to do is wait for the right time to counter.
