    I'd call her a less good bender because it wasn't sustainable in the long-term.

    Her skill was still higher than his. As was Iroh's, Ozai's, and Jeong Jeong's. That she had a mental breakdown after being betrayed by her two best friends doesn't change that.

    I like how buff Korra is.

    Because when you spend your life practicing martial arts you should be, but so many people ignore that on female characters.

    Well it depends on the style really. Certian martial arts don't focus on building muscle but focus more on technique and leverage.

    Still yeah a Bender who masters all four would probably need to be a little buff.

    It'd be hilarious if Azula eventually reformed and trained one of the good guys.

    Nothing like blue flame, rocket boots and LIGHTNING being used to defeat the bad guys.

    That'd be cool, but from a narrative perspective I wouldn't like it. Her character isn't really a "reforming" type, in my mind.

    As far as characters go, she's a 14 year old girl. Condemned to being crazy for the rest of her life is a pretty harsh punishment, even if she was the villain of the series.

  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus Registered User regular
    well I mean it's not like anybody's forcing her to be crazy

    but they didn't have anti-psychotics back in medieval times

    Yeah in the finale she goes from under-control-sociopath to absolutely unhinged lunatic.

    Also in that trailer, it showed what looked to be an arena. Kind of like what we saw with THE BOULDERRRRR

    I would classify Azula's sociopathy as different from her psychotic break. The sociopathy where she lacks a conscious seems like a permanent character trait. As a sociopath, she can still be a useful and productive member of society. Hell, a lot of famous world leaders and heroes throughout history have exhibited sociopathic traits.

    Her being psychotic could have easily been a temporary thing caused by the situation. Her only friends in the world betraying her, her father abandoning her, and her being suddenly required to rule a country. That's a lot of pressure, a hell of a lot more than having to take the SAT's. And I've seen people years older than her crack from just that. They end up just fine once they get time to settle down.

    Not to mention she just spent 6 months behind enemy lines in what amounts to a special forces squad facing lethal combat every day against her brother, the living embodiment of nature, and the entirety of the earth kingdom. Granted that she won, but that's some PTSD right there.

    she was always a sociopath. She grinned in sadistic glee when her baby brother got half his face burned off by their insane, grotesque father

    When I trained in a martial art that had a mix of northern and southern chinese styles the advanced female members had builds exactly like korra.

    The sociopathy was because her father basically treated her like a mini golden god(dess), whereas her brother was scum and everyone beneath her was also scum.

    Her psychotic break was because she was beginning to learn the hard way that not everyone HAD to bow down to her, and people were more and more beginning to defy her and turn on her, despite her supposed grip on them. And to top it all off, her father basically gave her the title she wanted when it was little more tan a token at that point, not an actual title worthy of what she saw herself as.

  • ZombiemamboZombiemambo Registered User regular
    If she was a sociopath, why would she care if her friends betrayed her? It would only be another obstacle.

    I really want to hug that dog wolf bear thing

    Fucker looks huggable but I bet you when he fights shit gets real. Appa was always sorta passive unless provoked. a Bear and a wolf though? Gonna fuck shit up.

    I wonder if it has water bending abilities or if Roku and Air benders are exceptions?

    She seemed to relish the whole constant lethal combat thing though. I mean, she sure threw herself into every opportunity to fuck someone up, and she never betrayed the slightest hint of fear or hesitation.
    If she was a sociopath, why would she care if her friends betrayed her? It would only be another obstacle.
    It wasn't that she felt bad that she lost her friends. She just enjoyed having complete and utter control over them (which you could see in her interactions with Kaylee (?)). When they turned on her, she was forced to confront the fact that she wasn't an all-powerful manipulative force of personality. She couldn't read and predict everything that everyone was going to do.

    the bear moles were able to earth-bend. I bet there's an animal that can water bend.

    That type of aggression doesn't require psychopathy. Psychopath's typically rarely feel any strong emotion.

    You'd think a water bending animal would be a sea dwelling creature. Like a whale or something.

    I don't know if it meant that they learned by observing the actual moon or not, but one of those fishes almost literally is the moon

    This resolves *part* of my bitching about no progress being made after Steampunk Era + 70 years.

    I wouldn't go so far as to call it progress, but I would like to see change.

    I was wondering about that. Will Korra have to learn from a Skybison. Are there still Skybison? We saw one in the trailer.
