Earth queen did get the air ripped from her lungs and suffocated to death if that's classed as brutal

That was pretty brutal and I'm surprised by that. That's a horrifying way to die
User avatar #137 to #106 - littleliz (08/22/2014) [-]
this is how the whole "what bending can do" started. once they saw that there were a lot of discussions on what bending can do.

I don't watch the show, but why didn't she just use her earth bending?

She isn't a bender, her father wasn't either.

No! That's not ******* brutal... compared to what happened in the last episode...

what happened?
User avatar #175 to #171 - spooooce (08/22/2014) [-]
I can tell you what happened if you want to know. SPOILER: Tenzin got all ass whoppin on the Red Lotus and was doing pretty good at fighting Zaheer, but then all 4 of them got the better of him and we only heard the sounds of the benders beating tenzin up. He might have died.

Heh... you know what else sucks dick? I'm in the UK. Nick didn't think to stream it to the UK. Nope, UK don't get **** from Nick. If they're not willing to LET ME SUPPORT THEIR STUFF then I'm left with the choice to do nothing and wait patiently whilst people come and spoil EVERYTHING for me or just do the cheap and easy route. I'm gonna buy the DVDs when they come out in a box-set anyway since if I ever have kids I want THEM to be able to enjoy this show, but I'm not gonna WORK to give Nick **** if Nick's not gonna do dick for me.
User avatar #213 to #209 - darthblam (08/22/2014) [-]
Well it doesn't help that Nick doesn't give a rat's ass about the LoK series.
They did **** all to promote this season and and took it off their channels because it wasn't bringing in enough ad revenue, because no one ******* knew it was back on except for people that found out about it on the internet.
So they put it online without any promotion there either, potentially leaving the series at an end with season 3 it feels like. They say they will do a 4th, but with the series not on TV anymore they probably aren't getting as much money, so they will have to cut their budgets on animations/writing/voice acting/etc.
It's all ****** and Nick is to blame as they try to pile in another **** season of Spongebob.
User avatar #227 to #213 - snowshark (08/22/2014) [-]
Nick screwed the series over but given the last few episodes... that's not why they took it off the air. I don't think it's a coincidence that the series was taken off the air shortly before:

The graphic forced-asphyxiation of a monarch, the mind-blowing death of combustion-lady, the graphic electrocution of woman-who-I-swear-is-voiced-by-azula, and then the vicious lava-suicide of lava-guy.

I mean... **** got pretty graphic at the end there and I don't think Doug's quite right about exactly why Korra was taken off the air, though I can't blame him. This stuff is pretty un-broadcastable even if it's relatively tame for what it is depicting.

Also... props to the show. Bald little girl. Didn't think they'd have the balls. They had the balls. She's probably gonna grow some hair back sooner or later but I'm glad they had the stones to go there and take away the one thing that the media has, even in it's more mature productions, almost never taken away from a woman.

So yeah... I don't think Nick took it off the air to screw the show, but to save themselves a LOT of trauma and maybe to promote streaming on their website. What is more, given what the series contained at the end there are you surprised they didn't want to promote it? They knew the fans would watch it but they didn't want to get a load of first-timers into the series through THAT series and especially those last few episodes... because **** me...

All-in-all... I completely understand where Nick was coming from regarding the handling of this last season. Plus, the first season of Korra contained a lot of graphic stuff too so I'm not shocked that Nick wanted to give it a test-run and not put their eggs in one basket. The second season I don't blame Nick for entirely though because honestly... there were some fundamental failures in the writing of that season that even when rushed a good author knows to avoid like the plague.

I figured as much but it pays to be unsure.
User avatar #180 to #175 - elynichujy (08/22/2014) [-]
What I'm wondering is why he didn't just summon tornadoes and hurricanes. One tornado of considerable size and speed and no one could escape it really. Then while they are in the tornado, just turn the tornado into a large pressurized ball of air with them inside. They should end up tearing apart at enough speed.
User avatar #314 to #180 - commontroll (08/23/2014) [-]
Because he would probably need the Avatar state for that, and seeing how he's not the Avatar, that ain't gonna happen.

Plus, he was teamed up on with explosions and lava and air bending and water whips (kinky) beating the **** out of him. Bending takes energy just like regular fighting does, so it only makes sense he was just getting more and more worn out.

If Benders did this constantly then Amon would probably have been the good guy of the show
#50 to #15 - stalini ONLINE (08/22/2014) [-]
but he was a good guy anyway. is fighting for equality a bad thing now?
#61 to #50 - John Cena (08/22/2014) [-]
Thats the same as saying we shouldnt have a government/president/king&dictator/ruler, beacuse everyone should be equal
#68 to #61 - John Cena (08/22/2014) [-]
Honestly though the Equalists did have a good point, the council at the time was made of entirely benders and then they all voted to hardcore repress the nonbenders even though arguably most of the crime was done by the benders.

The one scene that always made me think was during the protests when one of the women tells Korra "You're our Avatar too". I really wish they did more with that in season 1 rather than "lol Amon is a bender so the equalists go away now"
#70 to #61 - stalini ONLINE (08/22/2014) [-]
They were not against authorities though, just pro-equality.

idk if this is actaully true, just quoting from something I read earlier.

"Sucking all of the air out of someone's lungs would produce a vacuum. The negative pressure gradient and ensuing vacuum would have burst the blood vessels in her lungs, thus drowning her."

i doubt any kids watching this would realize it, but if this is actually true then that is pretty ******* brutal for an airbender.

not really tho, since ratings only needed for airing and such, digital releases do not actaully need a rating. only airing and physical copies need them

"basically" What? Did she not literally suffocate, but instead died from a heart attack?

To quote mechanity, "Sucking all of the air out of someone's lungs would produce a vacuum. The negative pressure gradient and ensuing vacuum would have burst the blood vessels in her lungs, thus drowning her."
So basically, they suffocated her. Not basically, ^that.

I almost expected to see the remains of her body, like the lower half with the torso blown off just standing there for a bit and then falling over. But seriously, that was awesome, though it's a shame they didn't show at least an explosion happening, they just sort of cut away.
User avatar #244 to #243 - snowshark (08/22/2014) [-]
They made it for Nickelodeon so they've gotta pull their punches a little but... c'mon now... the imagination does all the work.

>He could have used air to fling her into the ceiling and let her drop leaving blood and gore splatted everywhere
>He could have compressed the air and turned it into a blade or a bomb (gasses tend to ignite and explode when compressed)
>He could have accelerated his fist through her chest, they can bend enough air to send a 180ish pound man several feet in the air...they have more than enough power to accelerate a punch or a rock or a knife... **** with air bending a weapon becomes 10x deadlier

Even without air bending a powerful martial artist like him can do a lot of very graphic stuff to an old woman. Taking the air out of her lungs is probably the least graphic.
User avatar #10 to #9 - samxdaxman (08/22/2014) [-]
Oh, I realize all the ****** up **** an airbender could do to someone if they really wanted to. But I said "On a kids show", you're not gonna see blood and gore on a kids show. Although there are a lot of "kid friendly" ways to kill someone with airbending.

You can't ignite air...
#59 to #55 - John Cena (08/22/2014) [-]
You are aware that diesel engines work by compressing air to ignite the fuel instead of using a spark plug, right?
User avatar #57 to #55 - moistnuggests (08/22/2014) [-]
Did research and apparently oxygen doesn't auto ignite when compressed. If you release the compression it can still simulate an explosion I guess...meh

#219 to #199 - John Cena (08/22/2014) [-]
Y'all are retarded. Oxygen is an oxidizer, not a fuel. Oxygen Oxidizes fuels allowing them to combust. Diesel engines work by high compression, increasing the temperature of the fuel (pv=nrt), until it auto ignites. Thats why we also have various octane grades of gasoline, they resist combustion more in high compression engines.

TL;DR Air is not flammable, but it makes fuels be flammable

they showed the boat blowing up, So that sorta was on screen. They didn't show Earth queens dead body tho, Not actually shown dead bodies as such, Lavaguy dies in a cave in, and boom boom girl blows her head off and you see the smoke, but not her headless body. They could allude to it THAT MUCH MORE but as long as you get what happened then i guess its ok, ITs online only now so they could bump the rating up a little TVpg v

Probably because they aren't strong enough to propel such small particles with such destructive force. Remember, even lifting and earth-kicking boulders for them is like a set of push ups for us.
#33 to #28 - frostbeard (08/22/2014) [-]
cuz the avatar uses air element for thorwing the rock shards, not the earth itself
if that makes any sense whatsoever
User avatar #36 to #33 - UlquiorraCifer (08/22/2014) [-]
He's the avatar though, who uses all 4 elements, it probably is earth bending, just a high level skill that only he can do (for now) since he is in the avatar state
User avatar #99 to #36 - cfeuer (08/22/2014) [-]
Hes also in the avatar state with power that is supposed to be unchangeable by anybody period.

#48 to #36 - frostbeard (08/22/2014) [-]
Not as clear as snow, but from here I judged he used element of fire and/or element of air to make and throw rock shards - that is what i chose to believe

And this is Xzibit B
User avatar #54 to #48 - dbBlues (08/22/2014) [-]
Fair guess just from this gif. But what actually happened is Aang was cornered by Ozai and went into the avatar state. Then made a fire ring + air sphere because bending fire and air can be done almost anywhere and then pulled massive boulders from the ground and compressed them into those tiny rocks you see floating around him. And then just pulled some water from the lake/sea/ocean.
If you watch the whole episode, you'd see he uses maybe one or two mixed element techniques.
Also, it may show air and fire in the background of the gif, but that's just the air sphere and fire ring rotating around him. I don't think it was used for the technique.
Lastly, those don't look like fire or air bending movements.
User avatar #64 to #54 - unikornking (08/22/2014) [-]
No earthbending can send those tiny grains of earth that fast and make it explode like that
User avatar #76 to #28 - gravysponge ONLINE (08/22/2014) [-]
I think to do that you have to be a very powerful bender, since you have to crush the rock down to a small size, then fire shards of compressed rock that explode on impact.

Aang could only bend earth like that with the strength and skill of every previous avatar combined, and he was established to be a very powerful bender in the first place, so I doubt most earthbenders would be capable.

The stuff they already do should be lethal, but miraculously isn't because nickelodeon. I've always just assumed humans in the avatar world are more durable than normal humans, so it doesn't break the fourth wall when someone takes a rock to the skull like it was nothing.

Airbending: Air pressure can squash someone under enough atmospheres. They could also suto fire bend by using air friction to cause spontaneous combustion.

Waterbending: Almost everything in the human body is under this category thought let's get a but more creative. Using blood bending on yourself you could theoretically do superhuman feats of power and even flight

Firebending: Fire bending is under a broader power of temperature manipulation. To create fire they cause spontaneous combustion in the air around them though at temperatures like that lot of stuff around them would catch fire, including them to put it out all they would need to do would be stop bending, but they have shown to also have influence on existing fires meaning that they can also cool the environment. Firebenders can make things freeze.

Earthbending: By putting a rock under enough pressure you can super hear it from friction. Enjoy bending liquid rock. They also have demonstrated the ability to bend coal meaning they can turn it to diamond using the same idea as creating liquid rock. However they also have shown to be able to bend crystals dragging in god only knows how many different elements. Uranium bending. Oh, and metal bending also basically makes you Magneto so majority of his tricks as well.
#35 to #21 - isonig ONLINE (08/22/2014) [-]
Uranium's a metal so they could at least bend it. Conventional fission would would be neigh on impossible though as you need a high energy particle to start the reaction. Airbenders might be able to fuse helium though.
#91 to #21 - John Cena (08/22/2014) [-]
I'm DMing in an RPG session and the setting is all about the elements, everybody's an elemental mage. To list few of the more creative ideas for characters my players (or me) had:

1. Using water element to specialize your tissues in absorbing it and basically becoming nearly unkillable plant person, that absorbs water all the time, from everything (blood included) to heal
2. A berserker using air element to be able to go into murderous rampages while muting every sound in certain radius
3. An earth mage that puts so much pressure on both side of a rock, the enemies get faceful of pointy rock pebbles (think: shotgun shot)
4. An ice mage that specialized in transferring her consciousness with low temperature and didn't realize her body died for a week
5. A fire mage who could fuse everyday objects with his spells and detonate them at will, on top of having riddiculous destructive power and 0 resistance to fire

What if an airbender was strong enough to push all the air around a persons head away, creating a small vacuum, letting go, and having the vacuum collapse with great force, knocking out the person, or killing them?
User avatar #152 to #107 - cormy (08/22/2014) [-]
Creating a void around a person's head would be enough to kill them, no need to lay the smackdown of re-compression.
There's a reason you can't just hold your breath and survive in space, the answer is not the cold although that's a definite factor.
(The answer is that the lack of pressure causes your insides to boil away, despite the cold)
User avatar #81 to #21 - Eiza (08/22/2014) [-]
Earthbending is even more overpowered if you consider the fact that if they're bending non-metallic elements, particularly crystals, they should be able to manipulate carbon if they are skilled enough. Every living organism would be at the mercy of an Earthbender of that caliber.
User avatar #198 to #81 - commontroll (08/22/2014) [-]
But in that universe, their elements aren't our elements. The elements are just earth, air, fire, and water. At least as far as I can tell.
User avatar #156 to #21 - cormy (08/22/2014) [-]
Although firebenders can manipulate existing fires, they've never really been shown to put them out, I don't think they can make things freeze. They've never cooled anything, just heated randomly.
You need to go deeper. Air bending is either A: Controlling any of the atom/molecules present in the atmosphere, if it happens to be Nitrogen which makes up most of the atmosphere, virtually all living things will be at their mercy. The same could be said about Oxygen and Hydrogen; or B: Air bending is simply applying pressure to ANYTHING in any form. In this case you're basically a bender of everything, it's just a matter of how powerful you are in order to do certain things.
Turning coal to diamond would require an insane amount of power, the likes of which Aang didn't have as seen in the final battle vs Ozai. He compressed rock A LOT but did not achieve diamond status. I guess that could be because the rock didn't have a lot of carbon in it but it still seems quite unlikely to me that any earthbender would be able to create diamond.
Using Blood Bending on yourself should be nigh impossible since you would constantly have to be doing the movements needed to bend in the first place, although most bending just requires arm movement.

God dammit Nick, why you gotta have nothing but Spongebob?

I would love to get a ton of money and buy the rights to make a more realistic Avatar series/film. I wouldn't want to make it overly grimdark though, because it'd be very easy to overdo it. But something along the lines of GOT with bending would be pretty legit.

I am gonna watch the finale right now. It really didn't help that the week before it a reviewer saw the season 3 finale of Korra and said it was the best ending ever because that set the bar a little too high

but I'll watch it right now and see the result

They're mad because the Lotus were still right in their principal and we wanted them to win but they lost because of handicaps

Suyin ******* popped P'Li head like a meat balloon

Bolin and Mako overpowered Ghazan because Bolin magically needed to learn Lava Bending.

Mako only beat the armless one because there was no ******* water anywhere even when she found that small crevasse full of it she gets electrocuted for her troubles

and let's not forget Zaheer ******* curb stomping Korra into oblivion Dragon Ball Z style until Jinora had to ******* save the day...again
User avatar #303 to #299 - auesis (08/23/2014) [-]
How the **** were they still right? They had a good idea and then went miles too far. Throwing the world in to complete chaos because you don't like leadership, so basically all of the civilised world will end up like Ba Sing Se is now - fantastic. The moral ambiguity got thrown out the window in the last episode. Zaheer wanted to do what he did in the finale to Korra when she was a baby. I'm not going to be agreeing with a man who wants to destroy a baby with mercury poisoning. They were more humanised than the villain douche of Book 2 but they were not right.

I legitimately could never understand how any sane person would want them to win.

They went out like champs as well, so I don't know why anyone is complaining. Bolin's lavabending was obvious the moment he couldn't metalbend, people should be over that already, and maybe Ming Hua could have thought about a lack of water before engaging opponents in a dry cave? L2kite. Also Ghazan could have held some lava over Korra's head before she entered the Avatar state so that no matter what happened, she would be roasted. They partially handicapped themselves.

P'Li's death was metal as **** (no pun intended). I don't even know why you could complain about that, she lost to talented benders fair and square.
#304 to #303 - murrlogic (08/23/2014) [-]
Well to tell you the truth mostly these are the reasons why /co/ is complaining i'm bummed the lotus lost but I have a whole year to burn off

<-- that asami

once again

is being left in charge of comforting the avatar when it's not her ******* job. All the people (myself included) who wanted Asami to become evil now have to stomach this.

Asami is gonna ******* blow off millions of dollars of her companies money just to make Korra happy. Disgusting. I hate it.

Couldn't Earth specifically Metal Benders also bend blood? I mean... technically, blood contains a quite decent amount of iron...

I'd so be an Earth Bender, even if I couldn't bend metal,
couldn't you use impacts of large rocks to bend metal as well... kinda like, on an anvil.
User avatar #118 to #115 - boneblast (08/22/2014) [-]
The earthbenders actually bend the impurities in metal, or atleast that was the way it was explained in ATLA.
User avatar #301 to #118 - RipperMan ONLINE (08/23/2014) [-]
metalbenders LEARN by bending impurities.

the last episode just showed bending pure mercury and avatar-state korra bent a platinum chain
User avatar #121 to #118 - matexius (08/22/2014) [-]
Right, right. But I'm talking Metal Benders here, their sub-''family''.
Kinda like Magneto did in that movie... where he pulled all the iron out of that guard...
Should work ''kinda'' the same way emphasis on kinda .
Also, by that logic, the iron in blood also isn't exactly pure, it's bonded with both the cells it's contained in and the oxygen it's transporting...
My brain's going into overdrive here...

#295 to #148 - John Cena (08/23/2014) [-]
Anon is right though, Metal Bending is just bending earth inside the actual metal. The iron in human blood doesnt have rock or other earthly elements in it, meaning its unbendable by them.

step 1: be earth bender
step 2: in every fight, make hole and hide under ground, seal off hole.
step 3: use senses to know where every body is
step 4: earth impalement.
this would not work because?... it would make a ****** cartoon and not get aired

the hole is sealed off though... neither would work, how do you attack some one 5 feet under ground? they also don't know what location they are at under ground.
User avatar #98 to #96 - warzon (08/22/2014) [-]
You went ******* underground.

Not ******* invisible.

Also, Air would be a problem.

And water benders could still probably **** with you, with the water in the soil.

Fire benders might have a problem.
You know, If they dint have drill tanks.
User avatar #154 to #98 - twentyseconds (08/22/2014) [-]
if I told you that there is a person buried some where 5-30 ft underground in a 100 foot radius of you, how long would it take to find them? Now what if they were constantly changing location (they could still move while underground). yes, in fact they may as well be invisible, even better then invisible because you can still spam attack an invisible person. if you need air pop up an air hole for a second, dude I'm telling you this plan is bullet proof. water cant move through stone. at the VERY LEAST it would give them a GIGANTIC advantage in the fight.
User avatar #155 to #154 - warzon (08/22/2014) [-]
Four problems:

Stone conducts heat better then soil.

The air pops give you away, and A air bender can bend in some bad air **** (smoke) into that air hole.

And also, Your made mostly of water.

And if your moving Stone its easier to hear you, Even feel you.
User avatar #158 to #155 - twentyseconds (08/22/2014) [-]
four things? you forgot the ONE that matters. Your still fighting from the hole. how long does it take to kill some one? its a matter of buying time, its like your just chillin in a hole eating lunch, by the time any "weakness" you've imagined can even be seen, every one should be dead by then that they are fighting.
User avatar #168 to #158 - warzon (08/22/2014) [-]
"Should"
That gets people killed.
User avatar #176 to #168 - twentyseconds (08/22/2014) [-]
so does not thinking... "stone is a better conductor of heat then soil" well both are huge improvements over nothing, dude were talking up to 30 feet underground vs being above ground, there's no argument here. one is clearly better then the other.
User avatar #194 to #176 - warzon (08/22/2014) [-]
30 feet underground, That's a long way for a air bubble

And very poor choice vs. Air benders, But I already made my arguments.
User avatar #18 - monswine (08/22/2014) [-]
except most of these characters are intensely morally opposed to killing. The general sense of whimsy surrounding the depiction of bending allows the actual moments of pain, danger, and destruction to feel powerful. Like in Book 1 when Aang accidentally burns Katara.

One thing that sort of bugged me out though during the original series is Combustion Mans death. I mean Sokka throws his boomerang and strikes Combustion Man in his "third eye" and caused him to blow himself up.

We also saw his arm just fall into a chasm. But they never seem to bring up the fact Sokka brutally murdered someone and blew them up.

Also that time Katara turned rain into ice and almost killed him.

The explosion eye thing is chakra based. By hitting him in the right spot he blocked it forcing a backfire
User avatar #322 to #321 - themilkisdead (08/24/2014) [-]
Oh I understand how Sokka killed him. It's just that Sokka pretty much caused a man to blow up, and I'd imagine it'd be pretty gory due to the fact the man lost a limb and no trace of him could be found. I just found it kinda odd how no one ever really told Sokka how he just brutally murdered a man.
