Howdy fellow Avatarians, and welcome to the Avatar: The Last Airbender / The Legend of Korra Orginal Sountrack Tournament!

Thank you for coming! In this tournament, we will — after a series of matchups — crown the best music track of the Avatar franchise. It’ll be quite the ride!

Tournament Information:

Just like most other tournaments, the participants will face off against each other in randomly chosen matches. The winner of each of the matches will be decided by you guys through your votes. Like I previously mentioned, each of the matchups will be chosen randomly; however, if two major contenders get matched-up by the random generator in one of the earlier rounds, I will make an exception, and have the random generator select a different matchup. It would be a shame to lose a major contender very early due to an unlucky matchup.

There will be a total of 84 participants in this tournament (at least, currently), and as a result, there will be 6 rounds. We will go from 84 participants to 42 to 22 to 12 to 6 to 3 to 1.

Tournament Rules:

  • One vote per person unless specified otherwise.
  • No alts. If you use an alt to vote extra times then this tournament simply means too much to you. Let the winner be decided fair and square. If I assume someone is an alt, their vote won’t be counted.
  • No unkind, mean, or derogatory words.

If everyone obeys these rules, we will have an awesome, fun, and civil tournament!

Tracks That Will Be Competing For The Title:

I, with the help of some Avatar companions, have greatly attempted to gather the “top” 84 tracks of the Avatar soundtrack. Admittedly, even with the guidance of others, it is still possible for this list to be flawed. If there is any track not featured that you feel should be, please let me know below, and I’ll see what I can do!

You know it. Loads of great pieces, from location themes and character work to war criminal representation.

@eslay03: You remember Avatarians, but not how it came about? Sad lol. But remove me from Avatags, please and thank you. And double removal because I'm retired from tournaments now. But best of luck for this one. If I knew the pieces better, I would give a prediction.

Interesting start…although, I can’t say I didn‘t pick a match that featured the war criminal on purpose. Let’s see how this all unfolds!

For the record, I oppose such terms as "Avatarians" and "Avatags".

These two are too good compared to the ones they're pit against.

As soothing as Iroh’s voice is, I have to go with To Heal. It’s absolutely one of the best pieces of music in the franchise!

Now for the second match, I’ll go with Peace, although, losing any track as good as Kyoshi’s in the first round stinks. We have to make sacrifices, I suppose.

To Heal, of course, and Peace, but I hate that I have to vote out Kyoshi's theme this early. It's quite iconic, has been there as soon as the third chapter of the first book. But at least we've already gone over two series finale pieces as soon as the first round.

What can I say, I had to start with a bang. ;)

I will continue to use them just for you.

You're supposed to choose one song from each matchup I guess, not 2 from four.

Do you have a pick for the first match, “To Heal VS Four Seasons”?

Perhaps if this was one of the lengthier remixes, I might vote for "Four Seasons." However, given how short the version in the show is, I have to go with "To Heal." It wonderfully captures the struggle, the anxiety - I can mentally picture those strings as Korra's heartbeats -, the paradoxical comfort of remaining confined within one's pain, the fear of stepping out into the open again, and the intense relief at the end after finally pushing through those doors.

The second one is a far easier choice for me. Kyoshi's theme is kind of all over the place, whereas "Peace" is a soothing, melodious piece that remains so mostly throughout, aside from a few anticipatory cliffhangers, as more instruments are added to heighten the grandiosity of the sound, until it climaxes at the end as full-on triumphant.

Idk if I should be voting in The Legend of Korra rounds, seeing as I'm literally listening to the pieces as they're posted and haven't heard them in context (due to me not having watched the show yet), but I'm going to do so anyway.

My votes go for "To Heal" and "Peace".

Certainly! I’m now curious how you even ended up on there if you’ve never seen either show considering I borrowed from the community tag list, and from ANTHP’s Avatar tournament.

I highly recommend watching the series! You and @nevesytneves are definitely missing out on a worthy sequel series. While it might not be as good as it’s predecessor, it still stands as one of my favorite cartoons. The music from it is incredible as well; some of my favorite pieces from the franchise - and my favorite track altogether - come directly from the show.

I could gush and gush about The Legend of Korra, but I won’t bore you. Just do yourself a favor and watch the show. :)

I've been meaning to watch it for ages, but kept getting distracted watching other shows. Neves and I finally started making our way through it this evening - we made it through episodes 1-7 - and I'm really enjoying it thus far.

That‘s so epic! Season 1 still stands as something I enjoy a grand amount. It takes a drop in Season 2 - at least, in my opinion - but immediately picks it back up in Season 3 (which is widely viewed as the shows best season, and one of the top 3 seasons in the franchise). Season 4 closes it out solidly as well.

Keep your ears peeled for those lovely tracks though! My personal favorite occurs in one of the last scenes of Season 1 so you should encounter it soon - I think you’ll know it when you here it!

Attack on Titan's. Which pretty much single handedly put Hiroyuki Sawano, the composer, up there with greats like Hans Zimmer and John Williams, IMO.
