Avatar Korra of The Southern Water Tribe

"Some can bend primal elements to their wills. But only one can bend them all. To fight evil, she'll need every one" - Reintroducing Avatar Korra of the Southern Water Tribe

Hey Everyone! So as many of you know Legend of Korra has been released on Netflix, and it’s a roaring success becoming the #1 TV Show in all of America, 8 years after it's premiere in 2012.

With that it’s gotten a newfound revival, As Avatar Korra herself would say - "We are Entering a New Age".

And with that being said it's time for Korra fans to...

Find the Light in the Dark
Find the Light in the Dark

I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to do an updated Korra respect thread, that’s expansive, immersive, and most of all gives the readers all the information they need.

This thread is NOT:

  • An opinion piece, it will essentially be a evidence/feats depository, and the intro's and captions will be careful to not have hyperbole in describing the images and gifs shown
  • There will be no scaling or character stacking to avoid escalation and inflammation, other characters will be rarely brought up who aren't directly related
  • There won't be calcs or pixel scaling, those types of analysis aren't needed here since it isn't a VS comparison

So this thread won’t be about about attacking other characters or shows related to her let’s just discuss the evidence the shows and comics have provided us, and draw your own conclusions.

The Thread contents will be uploaded in Three Parts -

Part 1: Mastery of the Four Elements

Part 2: Spirituality and the Avatar State

Part 3: Physical Stats(Strength, Durability, Speed, Acrobatics, etc.)

As of now I'm almost done part 1 and will be posting it shortly.

Just like the show and character herself, this thread will constantly be changing as new comics or other materials pertaining to Korra are released so I'll keep you updated.

Below are the tags if you don't want to be tagged, of course let me know.

An updated and fresh respect thread will be nice! There is much to go through and a lot of work needed, but it seems like you have an organized and efficient plan ahead. I look forward to reading it.

When @tektonic: makes a post, you know it's about to get real, lol.

I wanted to say there's already a respect thread but I have a feeling this would be better.

Avatar Korra: 2020 Legendary Respect Thread - Part I - Mastery of the Four Elements

No Caption Provided

Unprecedented even among the echelon of Avatar's, Korra has been able to bend 3/4 elements at the age of 4. Since her discovery by the White Lotus, she's been immersed deeply in the bending arts for the first 3 elements to incredible degrees. Upon starting her journey as The Avatar, she would learn the final of the four elements, air in Republic City, which she would hone over the remainder of the series as her adventures took her back to the Water Tribes, and into new territories at the Air Temples and the Earth Kingdom. As her legend progressed she would develop and pick up even more unique bending styles to add to the plethora of bending arts she had already mastered, becoming one with the elements.

Below are 4 sections, devoted to each element, in the order she learned them with the details of her mastery embedded within.

Credits too @arcus1 for so many of the gifs you see here, holla if you notice a gif you've made, AvatarSpiritNet for the A1 quality snapshots, KorraHD.AMV for the clips needed to help me isolate the necessary bending moments, and a few very talented Tumblr/KorraNation artists who you'll find signatured in corners of their work.

Prologue:

The last of the four main elements Korra learned. As her spirtual awareness grew Korra finally gained access to Air. Over the course of the remainder of the series she vastly developed her Airbending in tandem with her spiritual journey, to the point it became her go to element in the back half of the series and for the comics.

Wow. The amount of time needed to put into making a thread like this is insane, and one could even say you went overboard with the info in some areas (I wouldn’t because the more detailed, the better). Amazing job, can’t compliment your dedication and detail in each different sub section of each section.

Korra is strong and skilled, no amount of personal bias against her (for reasons referring her show or her character) is going to be able to take that away, and you did a good job showcasing that.

The whole Fire section really impressed me tbh. I already knew how good she was with water and air, but never sure where I'd place her as a firebender. But looking at all these stuff, they were really impressive.

Oh, and once again, the introductory gifs of water and fire sections are amazing.

I'm torn between "you put in a lot of effort, and this should be really interesting", and "I just don't like Korra, so I think I'll ignore this" lol. I'll use this post as a bookmark for now -- in case I want to come back and read everything later. Kudos for all the hard work thus far though. That's dedication lol.

@tektonic: There are other feats you don't have here, though I don't know if it's by design or not. Or will you be adding more feats to this later?

Anyway, really good work so far. She deserve more love. The show was really good and Korra was one of the best characters that we have gotten in a long ass time.

I do wonder though, when you are done with this all, if you will put everything in the OP or if you will have them in different post on here.

@tektonic: I really liked the ice crystals gif, I never noticed how beautifully that was animated before. And I'm a big fan of the protective air bubbles she used around her and Asami's head.

Nice work!
Nice work!

It really was! And thanks!!!

Part of me wants to detour and do I little Kuvira/Unalaq(Pre Fusion only) thread, because I really like the contrast of these characters.

Wow. The amount of time needed to put into making a thread like this is insane, and one could even say you went overboard with the info in some areas (I wouldn’t because the more detailed, the better). Amazing job, can’t compliment your dedication and detail in each different sub section of each section.

Korra is strong and skilled, no amount of personal bias against her (for reasons referring her show or her character) is going to be able to take that away, and you did a good job showcasing that.

Wow thank you, makes me glad to know it all payed off!

@thevivas said:

Not to mention there’s still *three* more sections to go through.

Eventually but I'll definitely need a break lol, the hardest section has been delivered at least, so it will be easier when I pick it back up.

@tektonic:

Anything in particular that caught your eye about Korra?

The whole Fire section really impressed me tbh. I already knew how good she was with water and air, but never sure where I'd place her as a firebender. But looking at all these stuff, they were really impressive.

Oh, and once again, the introductory gifs of water and fire sections are amazing.

Glad to share something new, and thanks!

@tektonic: damn dude plz tag me whenever awesome stuff like this comes up

For sure!!!

I'm torn between "you put in a lot of effort, and this should be really interesting", and "I just don't like Korra, so I think I'll ignore this" lol. I'll use this post as a bookmark for now -- in case I want to come back and read everything later. Kudos for all the hard work thus far though. That's dedication lol.

Thanks I guess lol.

I wanted to put the things relevant to the sections I was outlining, so that things flowed better in an already overwhelming post. And I was tired AF lol. If anything I might do a few mentions in a seperate throwaway post if I think anything really needs a mention.

Thanks!

I was literally thinking about that! If the OP can fit it properly than I might do that or even edit the earlier posts I have in the thread to include later parts.

@tektonic: I didn't know how to word it without it sounded like a slight, but that's the best I could do lol. What you've done so far is great, I just don't like Korra like that. XD

Very nice work. Korra's bending isn't always very flashy, but you showcased the sheer precision, tactical applications, and subtly of some of her moves very well. Especially her earthbending, which many consider to be one of her weakest elements. You showed off how she uses it to destabilize and surprise her opponents. Catch them off guard or trip them up. Korra is a very intelligent and tactical fighter.

Thank you!!! I know you don't use CV that much but I'm grateful you put aside time to read and respond to my thread. Means a lot since you're one the OG Korra supporters from when the show started.

LOL thanks! Did you already finish LOK or you're still working through it?

@tektonic: I’m almost done. I’m watching it with friends and it’s been somewhat difficult to match up our schedules.

Anyways, most of her S4 feats I’ve already seen in a lot of the battles, but I did purposefully stop reading through the respect thread a little early to try to avoid any unnecessary spoilers. Lol

Nonetheless, you’ve done a terrific job with this!

@tektonic: I really liked the part where you talked about her Staff. That probably the one thing I overlook in terms of Korra's abilities.

Sidenote:

I am honestly shocked at the attention and amount of responses I am getting in this thread, PM's, and even on Reddit. When I was making the thread I honestly wasn't expecting all of this, but I'm glad I did it.

ATLA/LOK respect threads/CaV's don't get much responses in the first place, that being said it's still a lot and I really like the quality of responses, rather than generic responses. I have the rest outlined but it won't be posted for a while homeboy needs a break.
