amon a masked man who had a good character until they decided to bring in his "actual" character, what could have been a good thought prevoker/moral (typical of TLA) would have been the philisophical differences between benders and non-benders, and having a non-bender so badass that he could take on even the avatar would have been amazing on the same level of tai lee, and the other girls from TLA.
but no we get some punk ass water bending god who can use the force.
Tarrlok a guy who's motivations don't make any sense and who's bloodbending break the rules about blood bending.
Zaheer, a decent villian except for his bullshit powers that break the rules of the pre-existing conditions for bending just like the rest of these characters
adult ang was neeto
koora has few redeeming qualities
like it's animation
and fight choreography.
#118 - sephirothpwnz (07/03/2016) [-]
amon-blood bending without a full moon, and not using any of the waterbending stances or techniques to do so (goes with tarrlok as well)
zaheer-flying without a glider, and other airbending feats that clear defined rules.
"impossible" you mean they couldn't write a character that could be that, when they had characters who beat benders all the time while being non-benders???????
amon is like kylo ren, a pretty cool,threatening, decent character with a real motivation and is believable. until they take off their fucking masks, then you find out what they really are, with amon, he is a blood bender who was bullied by his dad so decided to kill all the benders for some reason even though he is an apparent water bending god?

It was stated directly that they don't require a full moon to blood bend, why they don't I don't think is ever stated, but they did absolve them of having to follow that rule.
Zaheer flying was stated to be an ancient airbending technique, directly from the one of the last true Airbenders alive. You can argue about how he was a new airbender with very little experience, but complain about him flying is showing ignorance of the show.
Aang literally had to go into the Avatar state to counter Yakone's bloodbending, and you're telling me you'd be okay with some random fuck being able to do it just by sheer will? It wouldn't make any sense, it would invalidate the Avatar state as pretty much the most powerful thing in the entire show. You can't compare random bending to bloodbending, it's nothing like it and much more debilitating for the person inflicted.
Is it really so hard to believe that the lessons that Yakone put Tarrlok and Noatak had a lasting effect on him? He could've seen the effect that bending had on his father and the corruption that it lead to.
#120 - sephirothpwnz (07/03/2016) [-]
zaheer using a techique developed by the fucking avatar right dude sure, it couldn't possibly be that the writers just made fly to make him look cool instead of having him just use a glider.
yakone's "character" is just as bullshit as tarrlok's and amons instead of following the traditional rules of bloodbending which were clearly defined in TLA he is just a random god in it able to take on everyone
yakone's teaching had an effect of course, but what they resulted in don't make a heap of fucking sense, why the fuck did amon become what he did, he just became what his father wanted him to become, even though he left initially due to his father bullying his brother....
#121 - nathanbiggs (07/03/2016) [-]
And time has passed since then, it's not crazy to think that bloodbending techniques have also changed.
Tenzin himself called it an ancient airbending technique, whether or not it was developed by an Avatar I can't remember. To call it made up bullshit made up by the writers on the fly would mean you could call a lot of bullshit in both shows the same thing. There's no reason to believe it was made just to make him look cool.
Again, as time passes things that seemed hard, difficult, or impossible become much easier. Just look at the amount of lightening benders, when just a generation ago there were literally 2.
He only became what his father wanted him to become because their goals intersected at the Avatar, aside from that he was nothing like what his father wanted him to be. His father didn't want Noatak to equalize everyone, he just wanted revenge on the Avatar.

oh dont get me wrong i liked teh show, but what made the first avatar for me, besides teh crazy antics and the bending, was iroh helping zuko find himself and i liked him helping kora in the spirit realm and i liked that zuko named his son iroh, after his uncle. zuko was my favorite character outside "team avatar"
the legend of korra was good, but i liked the last airbender more. i guess i could relate to the struggles aang went through more than korra.

Thats cause the only good xharacters were Bolin,the air bending girls,amon and the old characters from avatar. The rest were shit.
They made lightning a common skill.
The shitty early newyork talk radio feel.
Korra was fucking stupid
The air bending boy was fucking dreadful.
Bending was a game and a means for bullying not something of pride for the indivigual nations. Granted it might just be republic city but still. The giant statue of anng just screamed new york.
Avatar's main selling point was the setting. The lands were charted but you never knew what youd find. Each area had something awesome about it no matter where you went. The hundred year old boobie traped fire nation ship,omahsu and it mountain,ba sing se,the fire nation natives island. And the beasts in the show.. were so creative. Sure some were just a mox of animals like platapus bear (or just normal bear which was weird) but you have opha,the giant bettle in the great desser,canyon crawlers,that whole zoo episode,three horned ryhnos and many more. The characters were great but it was the setting that blew me away. Not the shit they had in korra still I liked the comics of team avatar leading up to korra so theres that
I guess Korras polar bear dog was cool too.

yes but it's supposed to be the ultimate fire bending. anyone can learn to paint but not everyone can be Rembrandt. it was just a little hard to swallow for me that fire benders became literal batteries for the city. that's just low. it would be like making all water benders healers who have to draw puss out of wounds. I get what you are saying I just feel it was overplayed.
#94 - boundangel (07/03/2016) [-]
that's why I like Airbender better. for me they answered enough questions that I don't feel confused by the power difference. in Korra it all feels half assed. Oh we need someone scary to break her spirit, how about a blood bender? it's like just because they didn't go right out and say Korra is gay, the rest of the plot suffers for it. and I did enjoy it overall, there were just holes in the story I can't really get over. but that doesn't deter my liking it.

And yet both of them are labeled fragments, it still makes no sense to allow the chosen undead to get 1 but not the rest. I'd say New Londo Ruins is actually harder than Demon Ruins/Witch of Izalith at the very least. There's no real explanation for why you can get one fragment of the lord soul aside from assumptions and guesses, the same thought processes that explain why you can't get over a pile of rubble in 2.
