Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino’s sequel to “Avatar: The Last Airbender” has been praised by many outlets. “The Legend of Korra” comes in a close second to the original show full of rich lore and climactic fight scenes that don’t last for 40 episodes (*cough, cough, Naruto*).  Bryan and Michael’s shows are strongly influenced by anime and its series is set in a fictional universe which people can bend the elements of water, earth, fire, or air. Only one person, the “Avatar” is able to bend all four elements and their duty is to maintain balance in the world. One of the most awe-inspiring aspects of the “Avatar” series is the combination of martial arts fight styles correlating with the character’s ability to wield the elements as if they were an extension of their own bodies. So, to review the highlights, here is a list of my top 10 favorite fight scenes from “The Legend of Korra.”

If you haven’t seen either of these shows, I suggest you get ready to binge because these are seriously addictive.

1) Kya vs Zaheer

After the Harmonic Convergence in Season 2, Zaheer grants the ability of Airbending and breaks out his comrades known as “The Order of the Red Lotus”. Zaheer, being disguised in plain sight decides to find the whereabouts of Korra while training under other fellow Airbenders. While confronted in Tenzin’s study, Kya learns the truth about this ‘new Airbender’ only to find out its really Zaheer.


 2) Korra and Lin vs  Chi Blockers in “And the Winner Is”

Korra and the Fire Ferrets prepare for the pro-bending finals, during the midst of battle Amon threatens the United Republic Council to cancel the tournament or else consequences will follow. Korra and Lin Beifong disregards the threat and allows the Pro-bending match to proceed. Right after the end of the match Amon and his Equalists attack the arena and Amon openly declare war on all benders.


3) P’li escapes from prison

Zaheer, Ghazan, and Ming-hua proceed to free P’li from her prison only to be engaged with Tonraq and Firelord Zuko with the assistance of Desna and Eska.


4) Su, Lin & Toph vs Kuvira

After a confrontation in the underground prison, Bolin, Lin and Toph liberate the rest of the Beifongs. They return to the surface where Opal informs them of the camp’s current situation. Bolin and Opal rush to save Zhu Li while the rest of the family fights back Kuvira and her army testing the spirit vine.


5) Team Avatar vs Kuvira’s Mech

Team Avatar escapes from the rubble of the Future Industries factory and devises a plan to take down Kuvira’s giant mecha suit. The Benders try to slow the suit down but its power overwhelms them.


6) Avatar Wang vs Vaatu

Having Lost Raava, Korra has given up until Tenzin suggests she try connecting with own spirit as a way to defeat Unalaq. While meditating in the Tree of Time, she is able to tap into the energy of the universe and see how the Avatar Wan, the first Avatar helped Raava in her battle against Vaatu.


7) Avatar Korra vs Dark Avatar Unalaq

Using the spirit lights to travel to Republic City, Korra reignites her fight with Unalaq, who has besieged the city. After an intervention by Jinora’s spirit, who brings Raava’s residual light back into the world and reforms the light spirit within the Dark Avatar, Korra manages to extract Raava from him. Using his own spiritbending technique to dissipate the Dark Avatar, Korra returns to the spirit world where she uses the last of the energy from Harmonic Convergence to permanently merge with Raava once again.


8) Team Avatar vs The Order Of The Red Lotus

Zaheer and his gang try to kidnap Korra in Zaofu. Although Korra’s friends are able to save her following this climactic fight, the group comes to suspect that someone inside Zaofu actively conspired to allow the Red Lotus to infiltrate the city.


9) Tenzin, Kya and Bumi vs The Order of the Red Lotus

In an attempt to warn Tenzin of the Red Lotus’ imminent arrival at the Northern Air Temple, Team avatar heads back to Zaofu to use the radio transmitter. The warning is too late and the Red Lotus captures all the temple’s inhabitants. Tenzin, Kya and Bumi try to fight off Zaheer and his gang but are eventually overpowered.


10) Korra vs Zaheer

Zaheer orders the poison to be administered to Korra which forces her into the avatar state. While Korra is battling the poision and Zaheer, Jinora and the other Airbenders think of ways to help her.
