Korra with air alone could win this. With fire and metal to counter some of Lins own metal it becomes one sided.

Unless Korra also initiates with metalbending, Lin would win. Considering Korra's go-to is usually fire or air, it doesn't look good for Korra.

Her performance against Kuvira (a comparable metal bender to Lin in an enclosed metal space) suggests she could win this, especially since there's much more room for Korra to maneuver about and use her higher end moves. It's tricky and close but I'd back Korra, since she also has pretty consistently great defensive and offensive feats against metal with fire and air

With her performance against Kuvira under identical elemental restrictions in mind, I'd back Korra in a close fight.

Kuvira beat Su who is about = to Lin, and Korra was getting the upperhand in their fight having her metalbending well. So Korra should take it.

@korraalone: @chloros: @minhcake: Can someone please elaborate why this is close?

Like I get there’s a lot of metal, but Kuvira is better than Lin, Korra has a much more open environment to leverage scale, and her own metal can counter and even tag Lin, considering she got Kuvira.

@vengefulshot: Yeah but they are still surrounded by metal, meaning Korra will have to continuously be moving and on her guard in order to prevent getting hit and dragged around. Plus metal is a pretty sturdy defense, meaning Korra will have to exert a lot more effort in order to try and tag Lin. And even though there's the opportunity for Korra to surprise her with metalbending, it's more likely for Lin to counter her moves.

Korra wrecks even restricted(not clear from OP).

The difference is clear in seeing how Korra one shots Kuvira's guards while Lin gets in a prolonged 1 on 1.

I think the location is just being overestimated as noted by @vengefulshot

With airbending alone Korra could:

  • Deflect or destroy air and earth projectiles from Lin(Korra has literally disintegrated earth with her airbending and punctured solid meteorite)
  • Deflect or unwind cables
  • Stay afloat on a airspout
  • Use a sphere of air grounded or mid air for 360 defense
  • Use an asphyxiation sphere

Not even including that Korra would have more than enough earth in this Volcano, and her combat feats with earth are miles better than Lin's. Her firebending prior could clash evenly with Kuvira's metalbending, here she can command full scale explosive attacks, enhanced by the volcano's heat. Not even touching that Korra can metalbend herself and even tagged Kuvira with it.

@tektonic: yeah that's what I thought. It's so weird how lowkey the lowball of LOK characters (especially Korra) is. Thanks for the feats btw. I was blanking on some of Korra's air feats (not that she needs it to win anyways).
