Interesting responses, any reasons? I'm particularly curious about why 5 or 9 (why not anything in between?)

For me its 7 or 9.... Though to be honest if Korra is limited to just water she may surprise and stop her at 4 just because of less options.

For 7 its the same logic as four, Korra's more likely to pull out water since Azula is going to beat her on a mainly fire offense.

For 9 Korra' got her most versatile element her strongest element and her favored element. She's in a good zone for a win or to at least stalemate azula who won't be able to overpower or out match her easily... And the longer the fight goes the more it favors Korra due to the big pool coming into play.

I honestly feel she stops at 9 why because as much as i love azula she struggled against aang using 2 elements at ba sing se korra is using 3 at round 9 that can be devastating since they can be used for offense and defense simultaneously.

could stop at round 8 or 9, but azula would do pretty well in the other fights, if not clear. Korra generally goes for a brute force approach for fighting and can be outsmarted most of the times, and with azula being not only an amazing bender, but also the queen of underhanded tactics/cheap shots, she would be able to take korra out more often than not

@primebonnick:

She had Tarrlok beaten before he started bloodbending, beat the Lieutenant, beat Unalaq in Civil Wars, maybe others. To be fair, Korra's villains, mainly Unalaq and Amon since she never got a fair fight with the Red Lotus or Kuvira, have been some of the most powerful benders we've seen. Also, just because she maybe chooses to use multiple elements doesn't mean she can't win a fight with fewer

Stops at 5. Korra wasn't the greatest in earth or air bending, but her skill in those two should be able to get the upper hand against Azula. Can't remember if she's ever faced a lightning user before, but Azula's never faced her more modern style bending, which she is really great at. Azula should stop there, though, in a good fight.

@arcus she was outsmarted/beaten constantly by chi blockers in season 1 and unalaaq managed to rip Arabs out of her by using her own attack against her, among other examples

@knightofzero: Season 1 Korra had lived her whole life sheltered away, she's much more experienced now. Unalaq used convenient plot power to rip Raava out

I love the talent and skill of Azula. She was the Bobby Fisher of firebending. And that is why she stops at round 1.

Firebending is something that has evolved from two or three people able to lightning bend, to entire industries built up on a reliable stream of conjured electricity.

Many of the best people in a dynamic field a generation ago would be laughed off stage if they just showed up today trying to compete.

A 14 year old Azula took firebending to a new level, everyone adapted and got better as a result. Add in that anyone who became Avatar would almost certainly get a primer of the tween that almost ended the entire cycle SOLO.

PS. The chess metaphor is true in spades. Even those who were believed to be better than Fisher (Karpov 1970s and Kasparov in the 80s) have faded because they could no longer keep up with the speed of adaptation in the meta game. The same thing here.

@senglord:

Interesting argument, but that's not exactly based on feats. You seem to be thinking that Korra has trained to take down Azula or something like that, when there's no evidence of that. This isn't chess

I'm impressed with Korra's airbending actually, considered it's her latest addition to her arsenal....and earthbending gives her metal bending too, that we've seen is quite good(lol at her not using it to deviate kuvira's attacks however)

@pierpat: especially considering she wasn't able to airbend at all for almost a whole season I think she's gotten respectably good too. I'm looking forward to seeing her metalbending against Kuvira when she's fully recovered

Yeah, now that she's getting back into the game i'm also eager to see a second confrontation against Kuvira.

But first....i want to see old Toph against the army :3

There's so many fight scenes I still want to see, but those are two of my main ones

I'm still hoping for an old Gaang fight, like the White Lotus taking Ba Sing Se

Zuko was so disappointing against the red lotus and i want to see katara in combat, not only healing.

Maybe they'll make them stop a part of the army in the finale.

That would be fantastic, hopefully Zuko will be more impressive when he's not limited by the environment and plot
