He was awesome, I'd love to see a spin-off episode that involves his backstory.

what about Texas?
User avatar #132 to #90 - cyanskater (08/29/2013) [-]
No no this is all wrong. The West should be the Fire Nation due to their fires and firey reputation.
The midwest should be the Earth Kingdom because...well it's mostly dirt.
The south should be the Water Tribes because it has the most water related activities.
The northeast should be the Air Nomads because well, they have a reputation with planes..

wouldnt that fall in the center of the circle then?

That's just tiny earth bending.

wouldn't say that mate, i said that. turns out i'm wrong.
User avatar #100 to #84 - coldactill (08/29/2013) [-]
Your argument was dumb though, saying "nobody looks at snow and says water". well nobody really looks at sand and says rock either.
User avatar #102 to #100 - thatonesouthernkid (08/29/2013) [-]
that was really just sarcasm. i just didn't like his analogy. sand is a rock but broken up into pieces right? a drop of water being taken from a puddle could have been used as a better alternative. my actual argument is further down with all "japanese philosophy" and all that.

Am I wrong for agreeing with you?

I was just being cynical. but apparently it's just not a very popular answer.
User avatar #87 to #5 - TheLastNinja (08/29/2013) [-]
Should be air + earth, but if that's possible, what in the hell could you do with fire and water?!
User avatar #98 to #87 - coldactill (08/29/2013) [-]
smoke
User avatar #101 to #98 - TheLastNinja (08/29/2013) [-]
Well, in that same sense, that should be air + fire if you consider smoke hot as fire, or air + earth, if you see it as the burned pieces of the earth (tree, cloth, etc.) But smoke should be air. I was actually imagining just controlling both... but idk.
User avatar #104 to #101 - thatonesouthernkid (08/29/2013) [-]
would steam make more sense?
User avatar #105 to #104 - TheLastNinja (08/29/2013) [-]
As I said above, I would think it would be the same exact as Water + Air... Seeing as snow is the same as water, same should go for steam... So, it should be steam and snow

i'm starting to have doubts in the quality of this diagram.

The closest thing to fire and water is boiling water... Or maybe acid rain.
User avatar #6 to #5 - thatonesouthernkid (08/28/2013) [-]
sand is rock. rock is earth. it's technically the same thing.
User avatar #9 to #6 - geitenman (08/28/2013) [-]
and snow is water. water is liquid. it's technically the same thing.
User avatar #10 to #9 - thatonesouthernkid (08/28/2013) [-]
yeah, well snow is water in a different state. so it isn't water any more, it's ice. sand is literally just a bunch of tiny rocks, it's not a boulder but they're still rocks. sand isn't rock in a different state, it's just significantly smaller.
#12 to #10 - anon (08/28/2013) [-]
>snow is water in a different state, so it's not water
Did you go to middle school?
User avatar #13 to #12 - thatonesouthernkid (08/28/2013) [-]
yeah, that's how i know that nobody looks at a pile of snow and says "look at all that water"
#152 to #13 - anon (08/29/2013) [-]
Whereas when people go to the beach, it's totally normal for them to say "oh look at all those rocks."
#14 to #13 - anon (08/28/2013) [-]
Knowledge is knowing that snow and ice are both forms of water, and therefore still water.
Wisdom is knowing not to treat a snowdrift like a swimming pool.
That's not how you know that, you know that because it's common sense. In middle school, you learn at some point that snow and ice are still water, just at different temperatures. Your username is coinciding quite conveniently with your evidently ineffective education.
#18 to #14 - thatonesouthernkid (08/28/2013) [-]
if that's the case why is it a problem that sand is still rock but small? what you are saying is true but remember that we're arguing over a tv show that loosely uses the classical periodic table of japan (composed of fire, water, earth, air, and void), in which the element of water represents thing in the liquid state. at any rate, modern chemistry an science only loosely applies in this situation.

i like this post, but methinks lightning should be between air and fire, and purest form of firebending should be heat bending, like firelord sozin did to the lava.
#59 to #4 - marcomarco (08/28/2013) [-]
lightning bending is actually closer in style to fire and water than it is to fire and air, iroh learned the movements from the water tribe
User avatar #77 to #59 - adu (08/28/2013) [-]
The movements Iroh learned from the water tribe was for redirecting lighting, not simply the lightning itself. It had to do with allowing it flow through the body and change its course. Iroh, Zuko and Aang are the only people I know of that can redirect lightning, but Ozai and Azula can use lightning without this knowledge. (This is demonstrated when Zuko redirects Ozai's lightning after the passing of the eclipse, and Ozai is forced to evade.)
User avatar #7 to #4 - grimsho (08/28/2013) [-]
Only firebenders can lightning bend, which makes it the purest form of firebending, whereas it's safe to say that both firebenders and airbenders can heat- or steam- or "combustion"-bend. I believe the lower picture isn't 100% correct, since "combustion" bending was only used by combustion-man, and that seemed to be a special case. As well as air and water's mutual bending form being cloud bending, as seen in the episode The Fortuneteller.
User avatar #108 to #7 - Flarfnijig (08/29/2013) [-]
theoretically air benders could produce and direct lightening, naturally it is caused by friction between particles in the air. airbenders could just, for lack of a better way of putting it, "rub" the air together. and water benders could also likely do it by forcing the water in clouds (clouds they could make) to rub together. whereas firebenders make lightning from raw energy. so i still think the purest form of firebending would be heat/energy bending.

blood bending, eh?
User avatar #83 - Ragumshnagum (08/29/2013) [-]
Lava and snow don't make any sense.

Lava is not fire. It's just really really hot rock. It may be capable of causing fires, but it is not fire. It's purely earth.

Waterbenders are shown to be able to bend snow just as easily as they can bend water. Snow isn't some mixture of air and water -- it's just water.
User avatar #86 to #83 - thefunnykiller (08/29/2013) [-]
Let us assume that fire is heat and wind is cold. fire plus rock equals relly hot rock aka lava. water and wind equals really cold water aka snow or ice.
User avatar #88 to #86 - Ragumshnagum (08/29/2013) [-]
Fire and heat are far from the same thing.

And trying to say "wind" (or air) and "cold" (the absence of heat) are the same thing is just totally ridiculous.
User avatar #89 to #88 - thefunnykiller (08/29/2013) [-]
I'm not saying they are the same thing, I'm just suggesting what they might represent in this bending system. All this elemental stuff stems from some asian tradition so I don't think we really have to use perfect logic.
#93 to #83 - llamadude (08/29/2013) [-]
True, but since snow is so porous (reason why snow isnt ice) and has gaps filled with air, an airbender should be able to bend the air in those pockets with the actual water component while a waterbender should be able to bend the snow with the air pockets intact. Similar to how Toph bent metal for the first time, focusing on the traces of earth in the metal, she can cause the metal to bend.

Bending is a spiritual thing.
User avatar #189 to #184 - Ragumshnagum (08/29/2013) [-]
That may be true to an extent, but it's not like you're firing "spirit blasts" at each other. It's foremost physical thing. You're controlling physical matter, and are therefore bound by laws of physics. You're only manipulating the elements; not changing the way in which they behave.
User avatar #191 to #189 - dragemit (08/29/2013) [-]
Yeah, it's obviously bound by the laws of physics as we understand them.

Seriously though, it's about spirituality, and using spiritual energy to influence stuff.

(oh, and you probably realize, but earth, fire, water and air aren't real chemical elements)
User avatar #94 to #83 - Crusader (08/29/2013) [-]
But it takes knowledge of how to control the heat of the lava as well as the knowledge of how to control the earth in the lava in order to bend it, taking simultaneous control, this is why the only person ever shown to bend Lava was Avatar Roku/

User avatar #200 - halotalim (09/02/2013) [-]
What if there was a form that didn't involve the user actually bending an element, but bending off someone else's chi. A bend stealing style that could be coupled up with Chi blocking that makes the 2 opponents equal to each other on the battle field. You come with whatever bending you specialize in, The person starts fighting hand to hand and soon they are rolling off your bending using your energy to attack you back with your own style. Not like the avatar which can bend anything by themselves, but one that works your opponent against themselves.

I would exchange snow with steam or mist and plant with mud. Lava is solely earth, as it is just melted rock, but I can't think of anything to exchange it with.   
Otherwise it's cool
