I've found an alarming lack of respect threads for Sokka on websites such as Comic Vine and even Reddit, so I decided to compile all the Sokka related gifs and comic scans I've created or took from Google and my previous Sokka CaVs.
Feel free to steal them to boast and respect everyone's favorite top underdog: Sokka!
Trusty Boomerang skills/feats:
Sokka is a highly accurate marksmen through his signature weapon of a trusty boomerang which has the unique ability to always return to it's owner even after striking any target from any distance with notable stealth.
Sokka was trained in the art of swordsmanship from Master Piandao who is likely the most skilled non bender in the Avatar Verse.
Piandao was said to be undefeated during his involvement in martial combat, and was also apparently skilled enough to defeat 100 Firebenders single handedly in a legendary battle on his bio from an official but now defunct official Avatar website from Nick.com
To navigate to Piandao’s bio, click on one of the circles to the right that says Sokka’s Master, then click on Characters, and then Piandao.
I’ll still post it below.
The greatest sword master and sword maker in Fire Nation History, Piandao was born to two Firebenders. Ashamed that their only son wasn't a bender, his parents left him on the doorsteps of an orphanage. Growing up, Piandao was a nervous and agitated child, but he showed interest in the arts and enjoyed painting and calligraphy. It helped him relax and focus his mind. At the age of 10, Piandao attended Fire Nation boys' camp where his natural talent with the sword was recognized. He furthered his studies in the army, where he developed a vicious and fearsome sword fighting style. Piandao fought many battles for the Fire Nation and won them all. But after several years of fighting, Piandao lost his taste for war and wanted to become a more enlightened person. So he left the army and traveled the world for many years, studying under a variety of benders, warriors, and artisans. He then returned to the Fire Nation and settled in the town of Shu Jing. One day, the Fire Nation army came to arrest him for deserting the army. In a legendary battle, Piandao defeated all one hundred soldiers and the army has never bothered him again.
Piandao is rumored to be a member of the Order of the White Lotus, but it cannot be confirmed.
With 2 days worth of training, Sokka became a fairly proficient swordsman and created his unique Jian sword forged from a black meteorite.
Space Sword feats:
Sokka's Space Sword has been consistently depicted as unusually strong in striking strength against various materials in the Avatar Verse.
Unfortunately, the sword was sacrificed on the Day of Sozin's Comet when thrown overboard a Fire Nation airship to save Toph and himself from a Boosted Firebender.
Sokka currently wields a blunt bone club.
Agility/Reflexes + Skill:
Often highly underestimated, Sokka has still shown impressive reflexes and agility against skilled opponents which likely puts him at roughly peak human level.
And in another encounter shortly afterwards, Sokka would deflect an accurate arrow with his boomerang, avoid another arrow near his feet, disarm Vachir's bow, and craftily gloat Vachir to fight without his bow where Sokka would subsequently own the archer in h2h due to Sokka's Kyoshi warrior training. Since Vachir is a former Yuyan Archer, it's arguable whether or not Sokka actually aim dodged his arrows, (which still shouldn't be taken too lightly).
Apparently, a Yuyan Archer's precision is legendary to the point that they could all pin a fly to a tree from one hundred yards away without killing it. On top of that, Vachir claims he could do it blindfolded.
Regardless, the Yuyan Archers aren't lacking in accurate archery feats either.
Sokka is very intelligent and is known for his strategical mind and ingenuity on and off battle. Since he is Team Avatar's official idea guy, Sokka is smart enough to pick up on things, and come up with plans on the spot which often help him and the Gaang survive against skilled opponents and martial forces.
^Was smart enough to realize Azula was baiting and distracting the Gaang from their mission.
Sokka resourcefully came up with a plan to use Toph's metalbending to unscrew the wheels of the Fire Nation tanks to immoblize them and cripple the Fire Nation army.
^ Sokka displayed notable talent with poetry and nearly won a Haiku contest on the spot without any formal training!
Was able to design a fancy armor for Toph to metalbend out of excess Fire Nation Armor.
Thanks for reading! Peace out!
