i think you need to be the avatar to be able to do that type of bending because you need to combine the different elements for example to bend lava you bend both fire and earth
#3 to #2 - amuzen (06/04/2012) [-]
I dunno, both toph and Katara are show bending mud so it's not to unreasonable. An extremely powerful bender with experience beyond that of Iroh sure since bending a dilluted form of your element is always difficult (blood bending, metal bending, etc)
I expected this kind of thing to be what would happen during Sozins comet TBH.
User avatar #4 to #3 - Animefreake (06/04/2012) [-]
With what logic, earthbenders should be able to bloodbend too, since human blood cells is iron based.
#8 to #4 - amuzen (06/04/2012) [-]
Not quite because as they point out iron itself isn't earth, that's why when they refine metal enough so it has no dirt in it they can't bend it.
People bend things with their element attached to it that isn't their element all the time. that's a thing. that happens. multiple times.
and when it happens they show it requires a more skilled type of bender depending on exactly how far off it is from their element, like when blood bending occurs it requires(d) a full moon because blood is a lot more than just water so it's a difficult thing to bend. or how metal bending was only first done by toph despite thousands of years of bending history because only she who relied on earth bending for a basic function of life was skilled enough with it to pick out the earth in steel.
User avatar #9 to #8 - Animefreake (06/04/2012) [-]
You have most likely right...
But even so, a complete purity of a metal have not yet been proven, to make bending impossible. In the right circumstances of skills and power, a bender may be able to bend pure iron, or even more miraculous, the atoms themself.
I would say, it would probably take inhuman amount of skills to bend something like that, but they thought the same of metalbending, right.

Atom bending... it could be plausible.
User avatar #17 to #9 - smede (06/04/2012) [-]
No in episode 7 of The Legend Of Korra it is shown that a pure metal ( platinum to be exact ) with no earth in it, is indeed unbendable.
User avatar #13 to #9 - mrwalkerfour (06/04/2012) [-]
i think the rule is the more pure the element is, the harder to bend e.g. metal is pure and therefore harder BUT doable but platinum is much purer so it is much harder to bend

to bend atoms is beyond any human ability or skill so it is unlikely that a bender could do so

chemistry bending, creates atom bombs
User avatar #41 - tehee (06/05/2012) [-]
only th avatar can bend lava being a combination of fire and earth
User avatar #16 - mcstorms (06/04/2012) [-]
I hate people like you, they did not bend lava or else Roku would still be alive. Fire bender is !! combustion !! that's why they don't need pre made fire to bend it. They combust the oxygen molecules in the air.
#25 to #16 - lordbuttersi (06/04/2012) [-]
If you want to bring physics into a a show like that you're going to have a bad time.
User avatar #26 to #25 - mcstorms (06/04/2012) [-]
Chemistry bitch. But that's how fire bending works.

What if he just did that stuff with airbending

User avatar #52 to #42 - skateabuga ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
I think that the unknown bender of the lava was actually just a past avatar controlling both the heat from the lava and the earth in it
User avatar #56 to #42 - connorsg (06/05/2012) [-]

The ******* le. Its right there... and i cant kill it.
#11 - avatarbro (06/04/2012) [-]
how to you know that the avatar was not using earthbending to move the lava
User avatar #65 - zapgod (06/05/2012) [-]
yes, fire benders actually bend heat, this is a known fact, they can raise and lower the temperature of things, so much so that they can shoot pure heat from there limbs and that reacts with the oxygen in the air to crate flame. and only and avatar can bend lava because its both heat and rock. no one els band bend lava or molten magma other than an avatar
User avatar #75 to #65 - epicalania ONLINE (03/15/2015) [-]
Bitch you know you wrong now
#12 - mrwalkerfour (06/04/2012) [-]
only the avatar can bend lava because it is both fire and earth all elements have a "inbetween" so to speak that only the avatar can do alone because only he/she has access to more than one element, however if an earthbender and firebender work together, they can bend lava

picture is a chart of the elements and how they link
#23 to #12 - anon (06/04/2012) [-]
so why couldn't katara an toph bend the wooden cage in the "The Run Away". According to this diagram it should work.
User avatar #74 to #23 - mrwalkerfour (06/05/2012) [-]
I think that katara was only bending the water which then carried the rock in it as well and that's why when toph joined, it had a greater affect because she was then moving the rock as well

I obviously can't say for sure but that's my theory
#28 to #12 - mcstorms (06/04/2012) [-]
MFW lava is liquid so you would need water bending as well.
#33 to #28 - anon (06/04/2012) [-]
pretty sure waterbending only applies to liquids with water in them. Last I checked, magma was not a solution of water and rock.
User avatar #46 to #12 - RedPurpleRain (06/05/2012) [-]
What about that time that Toph and Katara both bent the mud to fight each other?
User avatar #15 to #12 - mcstorms (06/04/2012) [-]
That chart is ********
User avatar #18 to #12 - JwBread (06/04/2012) [-]
That chart is fan made. It is inaccurate and wrong. 'Plantbending' and 'Snowbending' is waterbending, and Combustion is literally just advanced Fire bending.
User avatar #67 - truemox (06/05/2012) [-]
This means firebenders can also bend cold, if they remove all the heat from an area!
User avatar #63 - jurple (06/05/2012) [-]
it says in one of the avatar facts episodes that lava bending is a combination of fire and earth bending.
#61 - anon (06/05/2012) [-]
If Sozin was able to cool lava, could a firebender, with enough practice cool objects to the point of freezing temperatures? If they are simply controlling the vibration of molecules and focusing the extreme friction to create extreme heat and fire, could they not also perform the opposite and slow down the vibration?
User avatar #62 to #61 - shadowstepone ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
a tangent off of that, that way they they would actually be controlling all energy, even kinetic. that way, they could bend just about anything by controlling the kinetic energy. there is a similar way that any of the benders could bend anything, and guru patik verified.
User avatar #66 to #62 - GeneralLeeInsane (06/05/2012) [-]
Yes, but consider it as an enormous amount of kinetic force being created within a miniscule area, rather than a miniscule amount of kinetic force being created within a large area; a compressed form of all other types of bending. This would explain how the Avatar is considered to be such a powerful figure, as they have control over things in both large, and small scales.
User avatar #68 to #66 - shadowstepone ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
true, but i also think that the avatar has more natural potential ability than most other benders; remember when they said that "Only a fully realized avatar can open the door alone"? or when roku made those massive blasts of each elements when not in the avatar state?
User avatar #69 to #68 - GeneralLeeInsane (06/05/2012) [-]
Of this, I would not know, I have never watched the show, ever, not a single moment of it. However, I do have an understanding of the basic concept of it.
User avatar #71 to #69 - shadowstepone ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
well, in the end, all of the elements could be used to bend anything else if the user has even a rudimentary understanding of basic physics.
User avatar #72 to #71 - GeneralLeeInsane (06/05/2012) [-]
Ah, but this is where the problem lies...
Any bender has the capacity to control any of the other elements if they have a basic understanding of physics.
However, outright controlling multiple elements simultaneously is an entirely different matter altogether, it would take supreme comprehension and concentration to achieve; which, apparently, the Avatar has.
User avatar #73 to #72 - shadowstepone ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
no. the avatar can bend each element on it's own. that means that they don't have to understand it, they basically just have to look and make it so. if a non-avatar bender wanted to bend all of the elements at once, it would take a great deal of concentration, but the avatar is inherently more capable.
#53 - anon (06/05/2012) [-]
wait if you could heat bend and heat/energy is given when any thing moves. and atoms are in a constant motion (except when they are at absolute zero). So couldn't firebenders heat bend anything

On the subject of lightning bending...isn't lightning plasma? Isn't plasma also technically fire considering its high temperature and ability to ignite all it touches? Could be wrong on that though so its just my guess
User avatar #49 to #48 - sledmondson ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
lightning is electricity, plasma is ionised gas, fire is super heated gasses which emit light due to having so much energy
#51 to #49 - nobleknight (06/05/2012) [-]
btw fire is oxidation
User avatar #57 to #51 - sledmondson ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
fire due to oxidisation yes but the actual flame is super heated gas, oxidisation is not a thing it is a process, a chemical reaction, which causes fire, which is super heated gas
#50 to #49 - nobleknight (06/05/2012) [-]
You need to login to view this link a_(physics) says here lightning is a plasma.
User avatar #54 to #50 - sledmondson ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
no it doesn't, it doesn't say it anywhere lightning will create plasma but it in itself is not plasma it is electricity which super heats and cools the molecules in the air causing the light and sound
#55 to #54 - nobleknight (06/05/2012) [-]
its says in the link that lightning is Terrestrial Plasma, also upper atmosphere lightning is plasma
User avatar #58 to #55 - sledmondson ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
okay well i can't see it on the link i've got there's like 5 things on there and none of them say that, i ended up on a different page coz it redirected, not disputing your claims just saying i'm not seeing it
#59 to #58 - nobleknight (06/05/2012) [-]
but yeah even in school they taught us that lightning is a form of plasma
User avatar #60 to #59 - sledmondson ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
through everything i've just read, what i can can gather is lightning is electricity
'Lightning is an atmospheric electrical discharge (spark) accompanied by thunder, usually associated and produced by cumulonimbus clouds, but also occurring during volcanic eruptions or in dust storms.'
And also that it produces plasma
'Lightning causes ionisation in the air through which it travels,'
but in itself is not plasma it's just electricity. Even the wiki page on lightning doesn't say that it is plasma
User avatar #70 to #60 - ahj (06/05/2012) [-]
You're both right. Lightning is an electrical discharge, but an electrical discharge is simply the motion of electrons from atom to atom. Lightning is super-heated gas with electrons flowing through it, and is therefore both plasma and electricity.
User avatar #47 - cupcakessss (06/05/2012) [-]
The guy bending lava was a avatar right so could he be bending both earth and fire into one?
#44 - anon (06/05/2012) [-]
all of them are intertwined in some way then? fire--->magma(earth)---->{other connections i'm too lazy to think of go here}
#43 - anon (06/05/2012) [-]

Waterbenders have a "special form of waterbending called bloodbending"


So then for fire Lavabending would be the equivilent of bloodb and metalb
#45 to #43 - anon (06/05/2012) [-]
Lightening bending is their equivalent.
I've also heard that the airbending equivalent is sound. I'm not really sure how that works though.
User avatar #36 - jessewright ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
it had nothing at all to do with fire bending. if you watch that episode again he didnt fire bend i am pretty sure for the whole thing he used air bending earth bending and water bending. if he was able to control the lava he could of just sent it back down into the earth and covered the holes back up with earth bending
User avatar #37 to #36 - herecomesjohnny (06/05/2012) [-]
and sozin?
User avatar #40 to #37 - jessewright ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
there is hot ash in the clouds that is what happens when a volcano begins to erupt he is pulling out the ash from the clouds. the ash its self being super hot
