Any holes in the theory?
To address those saying that Chi Blocking and Energy Blocking are different: Very good point. But there was content a while ago with the theory that when Aang was stuck with lightning, a part of the avatar spirit was split and went to the spirit world - lost. When he died, Korra got a lot of the avatar spirit, but some is missing (hence is she is described as 'not bending spiritually'. The content said that Amon must have gain the spiritual avatar, and can actually see the spirit world.

I have recently finished watching
Avatar: The Last Airbender and,
after watching the first few
episodes of Avatar: The Legend of
Korra, I have come up with a
conspiracy theory.
After Aang defeated The Fire Lord
or Phoenix Lord) this scene took
place:
I Beamed there was another way
to defeat him and restore balance:
I took his bending away."
Wow! Who taught you that?"
A Giant Lion Turtle..."
As you can see, Suki heard
who has the knowledge to
take bending away _ and of
course it remains a mystery
in The Legend of Korra how
Amon has the power to take
bending.
Now, I' m not saying Suki is
directly involved in the
creation of the Equalists . but
look who Joins The Kyoshi
Warriors:
Ty Lee.
So far, we have seen a lot of
people' s legacies:
Aang and Zuko: Work together to
create Republic City.
Toph: Metal Benders‘ Police.
Katara: Still alive.
There are some that we
haven' t seen, including
Suki' s warriors and Ty Lee.
I can easily imagine a
conversation between the
two girls:
Suki: "Wow, Chi Blocking is a
great new technique for us.
Imagine we could take away
bending permanently, like
the Avatar."
Ty Lee: "He can do that?
Suki: "I dunno, he said
something about Giant Lion
Turtles."
Not only does this give a legacy
that explains where Chi Blocking
developed, it could also indicate
Ty Lee hunting down the Lion
Turtle.
She already mentioned that she
feels . being a
sextuplet.
Perhaps, she wanted benders to
be stop having the advantage over
her, and gave her son . Amon - the
knowledge to change the world.

**oneofthefew rolls 000** I think I know the only way to solve this for good. First one to roll trips gets to decide who Amon is. (If nothing else, it gives us a reason to roll without looking dumb)

... I still believe that it was the cabbage-man's son, who, after years of feeding cabbages to the giant lion turtle, finally got it to teach him how to bend energy.
User avatar #132 - odonnell (05/16/2012) [-]
What if the Lion turtle is Amon? That would explain him hiding behind the mask, no-one fits in when they're a turtle in the middle of a city.
#115 - auesis (05/16/2012) [-]
Because Amon is totally energybending.

<- Energybending, visible for miles
User avatar #122 - xiroku (05/16/2012) [-]
What if Amon is the son of the Cabbage Stall owner?...

Through out The Last Airbender, the Cabbage seller was always getting his stall ruined, and then he was not heard or seen again but mentioned, he might have just forgot about the Stall and settled down or went back to an existing wife to care for another way, and had a son. Amon mentioned a firebender attacked his home, killing his parents and scaring him. After hearing stories from his father about his cabbage stall ,what what was going on in the world, and what currently happened to his parents, he was bent on finding a way to end bending.
#127 to #122 - Sammael (05/16/2012) [-]
Cabbage Corp. is richest company on the world. He learned to deal with adversity and keep going, and that made him powerful and rich. I doubt he carries any grudges.
User avatar #126 - trezon (05/16/2012) [-]
Amon's parents were killed by firebenders, theres no way Ty Lee would get taken out by firebenders.
#172 to #126 - ZakyNine (05/16/2012) [-]
maybe Amon made up that story to get the non-benders to feel bad for him

Aang took Amons bending, Amon is a liar, he got mad and is like "If I can't, no-one can."

That's just my thought. Oh and yes I'll post this on every theory post.
#153 - damngurl (05/16/2012) [-]
Here's my two cents:

In order to create an attack, benders need to use their chi. Chi flows through the body like blood, and there are certain pressure points you can hit to stop the flow of chi, thus temporarily (or in Amon's case, permanently) blocking the person's ability to bend.

There is another way to take away someone's bending: energy bending. As we've seen from the finale of the first series, energy bending creates a great deal of light and can easily be seen from miles away, and it also takes a lot of energy and time.

Amon takes bending away in a matter of seconds, and there is no great flash of light. My guess is that instead of actually taking their ability to bend, he just permanently blocks their chi. I wouldn't be surprised if they could regain their bending by learning to unblock their chakras like Aang did with that Guru.

Would you believe me if I told you it's actually spelled qi?

first of all you should'nt make theories when you still need 5 episodes. second of all... who says that Ty Lee invented chi-blocking!? It seems like everyone thinks that! She could have learned it at the Acadamy Of Fire, like Mei learned those ninjaweapon skills.

You are missing the fact the creators already said Ty Lee was not involved in any manner

I believe that Amon has no relation to the original series. To seek revenge he "did his research" and found out Aang learned to take away peoples' bending from a lion-turtle. For those who say only the avatar can do this, I think not.
Waterbenders learn from the moon.
Earthbenders learn from the badgermoles.
Firebenders learn from the dragons.
Airbenders learn from the sky bisons.
#47 to #46 - anon (05/16/2012) [-]
(same anon needed to reply due to max lines reached)
Energybenders learn from the lion-turtles.
I'm just saying that there is an origin to each "element"(if you count energy as on of them, which i do) I don't think only the avatar can bend energy. He can just bend all 5 elements and go to the spirit world.

This might help.
User avatar #103 to #59 - JwBread (05/16/2012) [-]
That picture is all wrong anyway.
Plant bending is just waterbending, and combustion is just advanced Fire bending,
#52 to #46 - littlethommy (05/16/2012) [-]
I've been wondering. If the first benders learned from the original benders (dragons, moon, badgermoles,...) , why cant they learn to bend multiple elements. eg a born waterbender learing from the badgermoles how to earthbend etc. ?

Because, for some reason, it's linked to their ethnicity, if you will. Why, I don't know, but it seems so.
#173 to #63 - RageGuyyourmom (05/16/2012) [-]
I don't think so, I think they just moved to where the animals are or where it would be most convenient to bend, those swamp benders were not the same ethnicity as the northern/southern water tribes. Maybe they just never tried?
#198 to #173 - habibijan (05/18/2012) [-]
True, but only the Avatar can learn all disciplines, and considering that there are no Earth-Kingdom firebenders, except those of mixed heritage (like the mayor of Yu Dao's daugther), I think it makes more sense if it's related to ethnicities in some way.

Perhaps those swamp rednecks learned it from the moon like the Tribes, but independently, and their genes get locked or some weird-ass pseudo scientific explanation.

tl;dr only the Avatar can learn everything, so there must be some lock of a sort that is linked in a way to their kingdom/ethnicity
#200 to #198 - RageGuyyourmom (05/19/2012) [-]
I still don't see why for instance a earthbender cant learn from the dragons, they taught the original fire benders who had no bending before learning from the dragons.
#201 to #200 - habibijan (05/19/2012) [-]
Neither can I, that's why I jump to the conclusion of an ethnicity-related lock.

Or - Avatar magic!
#202 to #201 - RageGuyyourmom (05/19/2012) [-]
It can be assumed however that it is spiritually based as the avatar inorder to master all 4 elements needs to be spiritually balanced so if a bender has a in with the spirit world then maybe they could learn other types of bending. I just find ethnically based weird as for cross bending children they should be able to bend both elements not just one or the other of their parents.
#203 to #202 - habibijan (05/19/2012) [-]
Well, I don't know otherwise. I agree it doesn't really make that much sense, but I believe that's the reason, considering what I've seen on the show and comics as of yet.

Funny thing they've never addressed it in the show. Perhaps they'll do it now, what with all these cross-bender siblings and what not.

Actually, I think the Lion Turtle said they had used it 'Before the time of the Avatars', Which means maybe it was an ability that fell into disuse and was forgotten, and Amon simply unearthed how to do it again, maybe the same way Aang did?

User avatar #143 to #135 - generaljosh (05/16/2012) [-]
Its actually a pretty noble goal, just being executed wrongly by Amon. There are a lot of benders who unfairly use their powers to oppress non-benders, as shown by the gangs. Ty Lee may have taught Amon how to do both these things, and after Amon's family (meaning Ty Lee) was killed by benders, Amon put the skills to work shutting down not just the tyranical benders, but all of them.
User avatar #194 to #143 - wyckalas (05/17/2012) [-]
If you haven't realised yet, our world don't have benders, yet a lot of people are being treated badly by others.
