Not saying who wins but equal speed doesn't change that Korra's projectiles are too slow.

After making this I realized his iron soles can be bended. I don’t know Korra’s bending strength, but if she were in the Avatar State, it’d be enough to crush his feet.

Whip Black, although it cannot be used for more than a second, is still strong enough to grab three cars in mid-air, moving at perhaps more than 40 or 60 km per hour. and gently bring him to the floor without mentioning that he can grab at least 6 more opponents at the same time. Or you can have a spiderman to pull yourself in when you're in the air. this gives the midoria more room to maneuver than it korra. now that i think about it it's really hard to find a winner right off the bat this is a good fight.

Speed equalized, Korra kicks his ass. Not only is she the better fighter, but she has vastly superior versatility and total field superiority. While most of her rock and ice constructs are no big deal to Deku, the fire, water, and air abilities will be challenging. The Avatar state would ragdoll him.

It is subsonic today. It is currently 15% and can reach 20% with effort. Black whip speed is also subsonic. Since it is driven by the OFA.

I don’t see what would be so challenging about fire, water or air. I agree he destroys or dodges her ice and earth attacks. He’d either dodge or tank her other attacks as well. His two biggest rivals both use heat/fire attacks. Deku has tanked a direct explosion and a massive air pressure attack from All Might while in base. He can also counter water bending and certain air bending attacks with his Air Force move.

At 5% he‘s a bullet timer that can dodge automatic gunfire. Currently he’s operating at 10-15% casually.

Explain the equal speed to me? Does that mean base speed is equal? So Deku at 5,8, or 20% would still be able to blitz right because his amping his speed after the fact right? Or is he permanently disabled? If so you've taken away like 1/3rd his kit.

Ugh speed equal can get so boring, especially with a character who even within his own verse utilized his speed as an essential part of his kit once he gets full cowl.

People forget that when Deku thinks he’s going to lose he has gone “fuck it” and tries to use 100%. If he’s lose he’ll probably throw a 100% and smear korra.

@co-boss: the rules say he wont go past 20 and he only goes to 100 when a third party is in danger.

But yeah I agree about equal speed being bad in certain match ups.

I don’t see what would be so challenging about fire, water or air. I agree he destroys or dodges her ice and earth attacks. He’d either dodge or tank her other attacks as well. His two biggest rivals both use heat/fire attacks. Deku has tanked a direct explosion and a massive air pressure attack from All Might while in base. He can also counter water bending and certain air bending attacks with his Air Force move.

Here's how I see the danger of each element:

  • Earth: If Korra can trap Deku properly in a earth construct like Chisaki did, then she can render his strength moot. A single pinpointed rock-shot to the base of the neck would put Deku out of the fight and Korra is well aware of that weakness.
  • Wind: Korra can use powerful winds to slow Deku and maintain air-superiority. Deku already has trouble moving in mid-air so she can take advantage of that to hit him with a hurricane drop that would daze the hell outta him. In close-combat, she can augment her powerful blows with air pressure to deal more critical direct damage to particular areas of his body. Also, she moves better thanks to her ability to cut wind resistance.
  • Water/Ice: Ice constructs can work just as well as the earth constructs, if not better due to Korra's ability to change it's state fluidly. Deku can break ice and rock all day, but if she changes ice to water at the point of contact, he punches through and gets his arm frozen in place. Piercing, slashing, and cutting damage isn't easy for Deku to resist, and worst case scenario, blood-bending.
  • Fire: Clearly the most dangerous out the gate, without resistance to heat or regeneration, Deku is thoroughly screwed against fire attacks. He can survive explosions fine, but not a direct shot and not at point-blank range--something Korra is easily capable of making happen. Bakugou is powerful but his fire lacks intensity, so a flame dagger like what the fire benders typically use is more potent in close combat than his explosions.

the biggest reason Korra would win is clearly her versatility, closely followed by her mastery of martial combat. Deku has very little actual combat skill so he has no chance of beating her in close combat, which is both of them specialize in but Korra can fight at almost any range. The Avatar states ramps her to like x10 normal so he wouldn't even stand a chance against it.

He honestly can't. Korra's mastery of multiple fighting styles combined with her increased perception thanks to her earth connection means she can predict his attacks and counter them fluidly with air/water bending, styles that focus heavily on evading/countering physically stronger opponents. Deku's lack of experience is going to be his downfall here, not his lack of power.

With speed equalized, I can see Korra pulling off a hard fought victory. If speed wasn't equalized, he'd blitz her, even limited to 20%

I honestly can't understand the merit of posting matches where a character has to be nerfed to make a "fair" match. Doesn't that just prove Deku is superior anyway?

@silentnightz: wait what ?! It is certain that he is not as skilled as the leading heroes. and despite not being a guy with pure combat instinct like the bakugou. it is a debit of analysis and forecasting. we're talking about the guy who managed to predict a point-blank explosion and move accordingly to avoid them. this same guy was able to predict the direction of the shisaki attacks based only on the dissolution of the environment. he was able to use the "air" platforms of the gentle the gentle criminal. he was literally falling at high speed and was able to use the gentle's own quirk against him in his favor. Since these air platforms are invisible and the gentle criminal only knows where they are because he creates them. so I believe it is debatable how your point can make a difference in skill but the deku is not lacking in skill. The fact that korra can't shoot him right at the beginning of the fight is what makes it a close fight, this fight goes on too long he can win it easily because he has much more mobility than she

Korra doesn’t have the seismic sense like Aang so what enhanced perception are you talking about?

water bending focus is channeling offense into defense, when has it ever been used against to overcome super strength?

Deku is Very good at studying people so he Can Somewhat offset korra superior skill and the force of his attacks can plow through most of korra moves. She probably still wins though

Earth: If Korra can trap Deku properly in a earth construct like Chisaki did, then she can render his strength moot. A single pinpointed rock-shot to the base of the neck would put Deku out of the fight and Korra is well aware of that weakness.

He wasn't trapped inside anything, he had spikes surrounding his body. And even with that his strength wasn't rendered moot as he broke out on his own. If speed is equalized to Deku's level he'd have no problem dodging any attempt she'd made at capturing him. In the event he can't block he just destroys it as he's consistently done,again, and again.

A hit to the back of hit the neck may be a weakness in the Avatarverse but Deku tanked a direct chop to the neck from an amped Gentle.

Wind: Korra can use powerful winds to slow Deku and maintain air-superiority. Deku already has trouble moving in mid-air so she can take advantage of that to hit him with a hurricane drop that would daze the hell outta him. In close-combat, she can augment her powerful blows with air pressure to deal more critical direct damage to particular areas of his body. Also, she moves better thanks to her ability to cut wind resistance.

This location isn't favorable for how Deku usually jumps and moves around during combat so in the air Korra would have a slight advantage. However, Deku's air mobility has gotten better as he can now move himself around with air pressure and use it for long ranged attacks. If that doesn't help he can always use Blackwhip to pull Korra towards him. He's physically stronger than her and the whips are strong enough to lift multiple cars and lower them down safely. Do you have any showings of how powerful her amped strikes are?

Water/Ice: Ice constructs can work just as well as the earth constructs, if not better due to Korra's ability o change it's state fluidly. Deku can break ice and rock all day, but if she changes ice to water at the point of contact, he punches through and gets his arm frozen in place. Piercing, slashing, and cutting damage isn't easy for Deku to resist, and worst case scenario, blood-bending.

I see no reason why he can't just break out if his arm's frozen and Deku already knows how to deal with ice thanks to Todoroki. While Deku isn't imperious to piercing attacks he does have a pretty good pain tolerance. In the fight against Stain he kept pushing himself even though his leg was cut and he did the same thing against OH. He does casually fight with broken bones after all. Blood-bending is a tactic that'll only work with speed equalized and she'd still have to do it before she got ko'd.

Fire: Clearly the most dangerous out the gate, without resistance to heat or regeneration, Deku is thoroughly screwed against fire attacks. He can survive explosions fine, but not a direct shot and not at point-blank range--something Korra is easily capable of making happen. Bakugou is powerful but his fire lacks intensity, so a flame dagger like what the fire benders typically use is more potent in close combat than his explosions.

Fire is the most dangerous, but it's also what he has the most experience with. His two biggest rivals have heat/fire quirks and so does his current trainer (Endeavor). We've seen Deku tank a point blank and direct shot when he fought Bakugou the 2nd time. Bakugou's attacks can't be lower intensity than fire-bending. Bakugou's attacks tear up the ground and walls as it travels and can penetrate through solid stone whereas Aang's rock armor can tank fire from an amped Oazi. A flame dagger would get brushed away by his air pressure which is a tactic Deku has already been shown to use. He's done it against Bakugou and Todoroki.

the biggest reason Korra would win is clearly her versatility, closely followed by her mastery of martial combat. Deku has very little actual combat skill so he has no chance of beating her in close combat, which is both of them specialize in but Korra can fight at almost any range. The Avatar states ramps her to like x10 normal so he wouldn't even stand a chance against it.

The only reason Korra could potentially win is because speed is equalized and Deku's iron soles. Her versatility gets countered hard by Deku's physicality and his own versatility. You can't say Deku has no combat skill when he's been in constant combat since the show started. And he's been collecting data on heroes and moves his whole life and was implementing them before he had a quirk. He's the one that came up with the plan that rescued Bakugou and was adept enough in combat to counter Gentle. While Korra has more raw technical skill, Deku isn't completely lacking and his stats advantage compensates. Deku also has combat experience against people with similar powers while Korra has never encountered someone as agile, fast and powerful as Deku. Current Deku without equalized speed would beat Korra whether she's in the Avatar state or not.

@silentnightz: wait what ?! It is certain that he is not as skilled as the leading heroes. and despite not being a guy with pure combat instinct like the bakugou. it is a debit of analysis and forecasting. we're talking about the guy who managed to predict a point-blank explosion and move accordingly to avoid them.

I broke this up because there's a lot to address. Deku predicting the moves of an opponent he's known and has faced/seen fight all his life isn't very impressive. Bakugou's explosions aren't life-threatening until he's worked up a decent sweat and Deku knows this, so he's knows the inherent risk factor going into combat against him, but not Korra. Korra is vastly superior to Bakugou in combat skill, experience, elemental variety, and potency.

this same guy was able to predict the direction of the shisaki attacks based only on the dissolution of the environment. he was able to use the "air" platforms of the gentle the gentle criminal. he was literally falling at high speed and was able to use the gentle's own quirk against him in his favor. Since these air platforms are invisible and the gentle criminal only knows where they are because he creates them.

Deku was able to predict Chisaki's attack pattern and style, but did it stop him form being on the wrong end of them for most of their battle? Nope. Korra has at least 4 combat/element styles to swap between at a moments notice, he doesn't have time to waste mapping out his next move and she won't give him any leeway.

I don't doubt Deku's ability to predict/plan/adapt to a situation, but he's got massive stat advantage against most of his verse in average, he's been studying Quirks all his life, and there's normally someone or something to interfere in his battles on his behalf. None of that is happening today and Korra has a power set he's never even conceived being a possibility at a level he can't even fathom.

so I believe it is debatable how your point can make a difference in skill but the deku is not lacking in skill. The fact that korra can't shoot him right at the beginning of the fight is what makes it a close fight, this fight goes on too long he can win it easily because he has much more mobility than she

Deku is severely lacking in skill and even a novice fighter can tell that. His moves are too basic, telegraphed, straight-forward, and he completely lacks technique and style; he just throws himself into battles and has never fought anyone capable of really challenging his strength with skill. Anyone would fodderize him in non-Quirk combat. I get what you're saying, but Deku is a novice fighter and that is the fact of the matter.

Korra can't one-shot from the start and it's not her way so we won't entertain the thought, but Deku doesn't have a prolonged fight ahead of himself: he needs to take her down fast and hard, before she can restrain and significantly harm him. He doesn't have mobility advantage as she can travel on the ground/air/water in a variety of ways and she also has full field advantage.

Korra doesn’t have the seismic sense like Aang so what enhanced perception are you talking about?

Well, then scratch that. I haven't peeped Korra in a while and I was never truly into it. This matters little considering air and water techniques still focus highly on evasion in close-combat situations.

water bending focus is channeling offense into defense, when has it ever been used against to overcome super strength?

That's entirely incorrect. Water bending flows effortlessly between offense and defense, using the liquid state for quick fluid movement and counter attacks while using the solid states for piercing/slashing damage and restraint. It doesn't need feats of overcoming super strength, it needs to be applicable to the situation at hand. If you can't understand that, then there's no real reason for us to continue chatting.

Deku is Very good at studying people so he Can Somewhat offset korra superior skill and the force of his attacks can plow through most of korra moves. She probably still wins though

I agree that Deku is very skilled in analysis, but he's going to have a hard time doing that in the middle of a CQC with a multi-elemental who is also a savage in H2H and combat analysis.

@samjackson:

If speed is equalized to Deku's level he'd have no problem dodging any attempt she'd made at capturing him. In the event he can't block he just destroys it as he's consistently done,again, and again.

1. Speed equalized means combatants are at the slower combatant's speed, which is Korra's not Deku's. Now you know.

2. Did Chisaki restrain Deku or not? Did, so you don't have a valid argument here. I'm using a strategy that has actually been proven to null physical strength in multiple verses and has even stopped Deku.

A hit to the back of hit the neck may be a weakness in the Avatarverse but Deku tanked a direct chop to the neck from an amped Gentle.

And I totally don't give a shit. Human biology trumps fan fantasy every time. Gentle's strength isn't really comparable to a precision attack from a single point at the base of the neck. Korra can literally paralyze Deku for life with a single sharp point to the base of his spine at any moment; Gentle's blunt force can't compare to that.

This location isn't favorable for how Deku usually jumps and moves around during combat so in the air Korra would have a slight advantage. However, Deku's air mobility has gotten better as he can now move himself around with air pressure and use it for long ranged attacks. If that doesn't help he can always use Blackwhip to pull Korra towards him. He's physically stronger than her and the whips are strong enough to lift multiple cars and lower them down safely. Do you have any showings of how powerful her amped strikes are?

She has total air superiority and we won't be discussing it any further if this is all you have to offer. She can float, glide, slide, or outright fly; there is no debate to be had in regard to this.

It's hard to judge strength in Avatar since so many people can demolish rock/steel with bending, but Earth benders are superhuman strong. What happens when Korra does a twister move and spins Deku at 70mph? Also, she can ignite the Blackwhip to cause serious burns to Deku since she has 4 elements to play with.

I see no reason why he can't just break out if his arm's frozen and Deku already knows how to deal with ice thanks to Todoroki. While Deku isn't imperious to piercing attacks he does have a pretty good pain tolerance. In the fight against Stain he kept pushing himself even though his leg was cut and he did the same thing against OH. He does casually fight with broken bones after all. Blood-bending is a tactic that'll only work with speed equalized and she'd still have to do it before she got ko'd.

Korra can't bloodbend so we can forget about it, even if she can do it in the Avatar state. Piercing/slashing will work, especially if she cuts to kill. Severed tendons means no strength can be used(immobility).

Todoroki is a basic ice type and can't change ice to water and back, not the right comparison to go after. Todoroki's ice will always originate from his point to the enemy and is super telegraphed, Korra doesn't have any of those issues so she's not comparable to Todoroki; she would demolish him in battle.

Fire is the most dangerous, but it's also what he has the most experience with. His two biggest rivals have heat/fire quirks and so does his current trainer (Endeavor). We've seen Deku tank a point blank and direct shot when he fought Bakugou the 2nd time. Bakugou's attacks can't be lower intensity than fire-bending. Bakugou's attacks tear up the ground and walls as it travels and can penetrate through solid stone whereas Aang's rock armor can tank fire from an amped Oazi. A flame dagger would get brushed away by his air pressure which is a tactic Deku has already been shown to use. He's done it against Bakugou and Todoroki.

Fire bending, like Bakugou's explosions, come in a variety of intensities and you should have known better than to try to generalize it. I'm not very forgiving of these kinds of mistakes once I notice them. Deku has never tanked Bakugou's AP Shot and his gauntlet shot would probably kill if not severely injure Deku(almost did). Todoroki and Bakugou aren't the same caliber of fighter as Korra so they don't compare in combat prowess or versatility. Deku CANNOTwithstand a torrent of fire to the face so stop trying to convince me, I've read the manga.

Fire daggers are made for close combat piercing attacks, not long/mid-range attacks. Mid-long ranged fire bending attacks can blast or sever straight through stone with ease. Deku can't use air pressure on an air bender, its just stupid.

The only reason Korra could potentially win is because speed is equalized and Deku's iron soles. Her versatility gets countered hard by Deku's physicality and his own versatility.

So I'm gonna take this opportunity to eviscerate your post bit by bit because it's truly illogical. Speed is equalized and Deku has iron shoes so Korra wins easily. Deku has no versatility to be spoken of that's worth a damn in this fight, air pressure is a foolish move on a mountaintop against an air bender, especially the Avatar. Like, what?!

You can't say Deku has no combat skill when he's been in constant combat since the show started. And he's been collecting data on heroes and moves his whole life and was implementing them before he had a quirk. He's the one that came up with the plan that rescued Bakugou and was adept enough in combat to counter Gentle.

No one here is questioning Deku's tactical skills or mind so stop bringing it up. I never said anything about Korra outsmarting him, she would just stomp his ass. He's never faced or even heard of something as powerful as the Avatar; no one has a quirk with 5 elements and spirit god.

Deku has a single year worth of fluctuating combat experience and spent most of his life getting his ass handed to him by Bakugou's basic ass. Gentle's fight with Deku is littered with limitations and restrictions, but Gentle is by no means a martial god. Korra has been practicing crossing martial arts with elemental bending for at least a decade; they don't have shit on her in combat skills and no one you have mentioned is even close to her in basic combat skills.

While Korra has more raw technical skill, Deku isn't completely lacking and his stats advantage compensates. Deku also has combat experience against people with similar powers while Korra has never encountered someone as agile, fast and powerful as Deku. Current Deku without equalized speed would beat Korra whether she's in the Avatar state or not.

I never said Deku has never thrown a punch before, stop trying to strawman my argument. I didn't imply Deku has 0 combat ability, but his 3% mastery is extremely irrelevant to Korra's 400% mastery. My point is his comparative skill is nothing to her and with speed equalized on a mountaintop he's gonna be her bitch.....her other bitch.

Honestly, what is Deku gonna do is Korra encases his feet in rock and floats him bully-style 100m high and thins the oxygen?

In physical combat, I see 20% Deku far superior to Korra, obviously. One for All greatly enhances Deku's physicals while Korra is ultimately just an (athletic) human.

Still Korra has a huge versality advantage, which she can partly use to defend her body(like Aang surrounding his body with wind and stone) and also attack from a distance.

If Deku comes close enough, it could potentially end in one blow.

If Korra manages to keep him at distance, she will wear him out sooner or later.

I would say 60/40 in Korra's favor.

Korra doesn’t have the seismic sense like Aang so what enhanced perception are you talking about?

Well, then scratch that. I haven't peeped Korra in a while and I was never truly into it. This matters little considering air and water techniques still focus highly on evasion in close-combat situations.

water bending focus is channeling offense into defense, when has it ever been used against to overcome super strength?

That's entirely incorrect. Water bending flows effortlessly between offense and defense, using the liquid state for quick fluid movement and counter attacks while using the solid states for piercing/slashing damage and restraint. It doesn't need feats of overcoming super strength, it needs to be applicable to the situation at hand. If you can't understand that, then there's no real reason for us to continue chatting.

Deku is Very good at studying people so he Can Somewhat offset korra superior skill and the force of his attacks can plow through most of korra moves. She probably still wins though

I agree that Deku is very skilled in analysis, but he's going to have a hard time doing that in the middle of a CQC with a multi-elemental who is also a savage in H2H and combat analysis.

Korra? Combat analysis? When? I agree with everything else.

how is korra durability?

Let me know if the post is too long, I'll try and shorten my next one.

1. Speed equalized means combatants are at the slower combatant's speed, which is Korra's not Deku's. Now you know.

Eh, I've seen OP 's choose who speed was equalized to..

2. Did Chisaki restrain Deku or not? Did, so you don't have a valid argument here. I'm using a strategy that has actually been proven to null physical strength in multiple verses and has even stopped Deku.

You're argument is that she can trap him and make his strength moot. The example you used of him being "trapped" also has him breaking out on his own. Clearly his strength isn't moot if he can just break out of whatever she tries to trap him in.

And I totally don't give a shit. Human biology trumps fan fantasy every time.

What exactly is this suppose to mean? Human biology means nothing dealing with fictional characters. Deku is a lot durable than Avatar characters, therefore something that harms isn't guaranteed to harm him.

Gentle's strength isn't really comparable to a precision attack from a single point at the base of the neck. Korra can literally paralyze Deku for life with a single sharp point to the base of his spine at any moment; Gentle's blunt force can't compare to that.

Once Gentle got his amp he was matching Deku in strength and even overpowered him when he first got the amp. Deku at that time was operating between 10% and 15%. Deku at 5% could already casually shatter stone and rocks. Someone with equal strength hit him with a direct chop to the neck and he tanked it. And there's still no reason why he can't dodge it even with being nerfed to Korra's speed.

She has total air superiority and we won't be discussing it any further if this is all you have to offer. She can float, glide, slide, or outright fly; there is no debate to be had in regard to this.

Not to the point where he gets stomped. New movie shows how casually he can move and fight while in the air and he can even change directions midair now. As I have mentioned before he also has Blackwhip to grab and trap her midair.

It's hard to judge strength in Avatar since so many people can demolish rock/steel with bending, but Earth benders are superhuman strong.

Prove it. And there's nobody in the Avatarverse that compares to Deku physically.

What happens when Korra does a twister move and spins Deku at 70mph?

Show me a video or a gif of it and I can properly answer.

Also, she can ignite the Blackwhip to cause serious burns to Deku since she has 4 elements to play with.

How exactly is she going to ignite Blackwhip? It's a black energy, what makes you think she can burn energy? And I doubt he's getting any serious burns from Korra. Even though you ignored them, I've shown you Deku tanking explosions while in BASE. Deku operating at 20% won't have any problem at all.

Piercing/slashing will work, especially if she cuts to kill. Severed tendons means no strength can be used(immobility).

I never said piercing/slashing wouldn't work. My point is he has an insane pain intolerance and has shown to push through being cut and stabbed not once, but twice. This is the same kid that keeps fighting after breaking his bones over and over again.

Todoroki is a basic ice type and can't change ice to water and back, not the right comparison to go after. Todoroki's ice will always originate from his point to the enemy and is super telegraphed, Korra doesn't have any of those issues so she's not comparable to Todoroki; she would demolish him in battle.

It still shows he's no stranger to an opponent using ice and has combat experience fighting against it. And Korra wouldn't demolish Todoroki, not even close. Her best bet is a stalemate since she can bend his attacks. The problem is he's faster than her and can tank a majority of her attacks.

Fire bending, like Bakugou's explosions, come in a variety of intensities and you should have known better than to try to generalize it.

Um... you're the one who tried to generalize it lol. You said Bakugou lacks intensity and I provided feats showing otherwise.

I'm not very forgiving of these kinds of mistakes once I notice them. Deku has never tanked Bakugou's AP Shot and his gauntlet shot would probably kill if not severely injure Deku(almost did).

I never said he tanked an AP shot, I was showing you how powerful Bakugou's attacks were. And I've already shown you a gif of Deku tanking a gauntlet blast while in base.

Todoroki and Bakugou aren't the same caliber of fighter as Korra so they don't compare in combat prowess or versatility.

This is just false. I don't feel like arguing for Todoroki right now but Bakugou definitely has comparable if not downright better combat prowess and comparable versatility with his quirk. The manga and anime frequently comments on Bakugou's battle instinct. This has been shown in the Sports Festival, during Class 1A vs Class 1B training and definitely against Nine in the recent movie. Korra is more versatile but Bakugou's own versatility is more useful in a fight between them. He's way faster than her he'd blind her with stun grenade and one shot her.

Deku CANNOTwithstand a torrent of fire to the face so stop trying to convince me, I've read the manga.

I'm not convinced you have. Because he has already done it multiple times, I'm not sure why you're ignoring the gifs I'm posting.

Fire daggers are made for close combat piercing attacks, not long/mid-range attacks. Mid-long ranged fire bending attacks can blast or sever straight through stone with ease.

Oazi was amped by the comment and couldn't blast through Aang's stone armor which is just stone. Towards the end of the fight it took him multiple blast to get through Aang's stone ball iirc.

Deku can't use air pressure on an air bender, its just stupid.

There's no reason why he can't use air pressure to block her fire bending while she's fire bending. Air pressure attacks are a viable counter to her fire bending and good for defending against air bending.

So I'm gonna take this opportunity to eviscerate your post bit by bit because it's truly illogical. Speed is equalized and Deku has iron shoes so Korra wins easily.

I literally just said she could only win because he has iron soles and speed is equalized, how am I being illogical? I never even said who wins this fight I was initially commenting on how her fire, earth, water and air bending attacks wouldn't be challenging. And he'd blitz and one shot with iron soles if speed wasn't equalized.

Deku has no versatility to be spoken of that's worth a damn in this fight, air pressure is a foolish move on a mountaintop against an air bender, especially the Avatar. Like, what?!

Korra goes for a fire attack, Deku uses air pressure to brush it aside or blow it away. Why is air pressure foolish? And you keep ignoring Blackwhip. While he can't use it for very long, he can use it long enough to wrap something and yank it towards him for an attack. Korra's not breaking out of it either because just a few are capable of holding a cars. Deku only needs to land one or two good shots. He'd cave her head in with a solid kick.

No one here is questioning Deku's tactical skills or mind so stop bringing it up.

You literally said Deku had no combat skill in your previous post.

I never said anything about Korra outsmarting him, she would just stomp his ass. He's never faced or even heard of something as powerful as the Avatar; no one has a quirk with 5 elements and spirit god.

While there's no one who can manipulate the elements like Korra and the avatar Deku has face way more powerful opponents than Korra. And the Avatar is more powerful than anything Deku has heard of? Lmfao... All For One stomps, All Might stomps, Shigaraki stomps, Nine stomps, Muscular stomps, Overhaul stomps hell even Bakugou would blitz and stomp Korra.

Deku has a single year worth of fluctuating combat experience and spent most of his life getting his ass handed to him by Bakugou's basic ass.

He spent his entire life idolizing heroes and watching their every move. He compiled a book of all their best moves and tactics and has said book memorized. Bakugou beating his ass his entire gave helped him learn Bakugou's fighting style and quirk. He incorporated Bakugou's movement along with Gran Torino's in his Full Cowling. Because he got his ass kicked by Bakugou so much he knew Bakugou always opened with a big hook which helped him in their fight. Combat experience is still combat experience, he hasn't fluctuated at all he's consistently getting better. And saying Bakugou is basic makes me believe you aren't familiar with MHA.

Gentle's fight with Deku is littered with limitations and restrictions, but Gentle is by no means a martial god.

Never said Gentle was, but he's very skilled at using his quirk. Deku following his tracks and then back tracking his attack to follow a path to Gentle is a solid combat skill showing and shows how he can adapt in battle.

Korra has been practicing crossing martial arts with elemental bending for at least a decade; they don't have shit on her in combat skills and no one you have mentioned is even close to her in basic combat skills.

Gentle was 32 year old who's been using his quirk longer than Korra has been bending. As I've already said, Bakugou trumps her combat skills. She has more raw martial skill and that's it. Martial Arts isn't the only aspect of combat skill.

I never said Deku has never thrown a punch before, stop trying to strawman my argument. I didn't imply Deku has 0 combat ability, but his 3% mastery is extremely irrelevant to Korra's 400% mastery. My point is his comparative skill is nothing to her and with speed equalized on a mountaintop he's gonna be her bitch.....her other bitch.

You said this, "Deku has very little actual combat skill so he has no chance of beating her in close combat" which is completely false. And taking away his speed only stops her from getting blitzed. It doesn't stop him from blocking, destroying or tanking her attacks and wrecking her in CQC with his superior physicals. Any hit Deku lands will rag doll Korra and as I said above a solid kick will cave her head in.

Honestly, what is Deku gonna do is Korra encases his feet in rock

Simple. Break it.

and floats him bully-style 100m high and thins the oxygen?

Simple. Use air pressure to launch himself towards her or use black whip to pull her towards him.
