Cross Over _ Korra vs Azula by kelly1412 Cross Over _ Korra vs Azula by kelly1412
You can think of it as another version of Korra's firebending training with Azula, or a fighting scene, but I personally don't think she got any chance to win this fight at this point, the new avatar is way too weak both mentally and physically. But both are awesome badass!~ :XD:

Why Korra is wearing Mako's scarf? Well, you can make up your story from there. but my reason is definitely nothing romantic. :evillaugh:

This is an experimental piece for applying my portrain ink paint style into full body action, but it seems doesn’t work out very well, so... what do you think about it, shall I keep developing this way or maybe think about it later? Real hope I can get some feedback from you~ especially about the coloring method and the action

I'm betting on Azula. Korra's got the brains of Leeroy Jenkins. Azula only has one element, but at least she's got tactical prowess.

Azula: So you're the little airbending monk's successor, eh?  It'll be even more satisfying putting a lightning bolt in your back as well.

I think that Azula would fight her at first, but then, impressed by Korra's prowess, and intrigued by her weak mind, she would take her under her wing and try to flatter and mold Korra into the perfect weapon, as Ozai did with her.

So, yes, Korra could easily stand in a fight with Azula. Azulas weakness would be water, Korra can just stop her like Katara did.

I doubt that. In "Crossroads of Destiny", Katara unleashed that wave on Azula, and the princess easily dispersed it with some blue fiery explosion. :P So as much as I love Korra, I think that Azula would trample her down to the ground and leave her as a grease spot.

I see your point but think about it, we all know Aang could beat Azula. And basically Korra is him, so if she went into Avatar state she could beat Azula with a clear
advantage. 
The only reason Azula was able to take down Aang when he was in the Avatar state was because she caught him by surprise. So head on, it Korra could defeat Azula.
We all know Azula is a bit nutting right now anyways. But no matter what either of us say it's clear that we can't really decide who would win until all four seasons of the Legend of Korra
come out. That would be the fair thing to do, considering we don't know how strong Korra will become.

But entering the Avatar State is...essentially cheating on Korra's part. Yes, she would win with it, but what without?

In a flat-out firebending match where Azula has not gone insane...well, Korra's firebending isn't shoddy at all; I'd say that it's her best element, actually, but Azula's firebending is simply phenomenal. She's a firebending prodigy. Even though Korra's a bending prodigy as well and is considered a master in water, earth, and fire (right?), what we have seen of Korra's firebending hardly compares to Azula's.

Seriously, I could go on more about this (which I will if you choose to reply, :), I'll be waiting), but there are so many factors that decide an outcome of a sort of match like this: what age are they? Skill level? Solely firebending for Korra or not? What's the terrain? Is Azula crazy or not?

As for the end of LoK, I'm pretty sure she'll become at least as powerful as Aang; maybe less, maybe more. But in my Azula-crazed mind, I like to think that she was only defeated by Katara because she went crazy, and we all know that Katara and Zuko would have been incinerated if the princess were in her right mind. :P I love my headcanon.

Actually, your the one cheating by completely changing the story line because you want your favorite character to be the winner of every battle. Korra going into the Avatar state is cheating? That's like saying Aang using the Avatar state to defeat Ozai was cheating. It's not. The Avatar has their powers fair and square, whether you like it or not. And I disagree that fire bending is Korras strongest element. I think she would be a better water bender, it's just she couldn't water bend very much is LOK because there wasn't water around to bend, so she had to resort to fire bending. Azula is a stronger fire bender but Korra can use any type of bending pr ability she wants, because she can. 

Even if Azula hadn't gone insane she still would have been defeated. Team Avatar so far has been the greatest Avatar team to ever exist in my mind. They're strong and they fight for each other, and they don't give up no matter what. It is simply dumb to believe Azula can beat team avatar head on. In fact, she would have been defeated in the episode where she was cornered by everyone if Iroh hadn't gotten distracted. 

As for when you talked about it depends of factors to whom wins the fight, you clearly dont believe that if you flat out say Azula wins. I can go on much more too, because in the world of avatar good will always win. No matter what you say, the truth is Azula isn't as great as you think she is.

I am not changing the storyline. I am merely stating that if Korra couldn't use the Avatar State in their battle, I don't think that she would stand as great of a chance against Azula. Yes, I admit that my favorite character may be Azula, but in retrospect...I could say the same to you about Korra. Wouldn't you want her to win all the battles? Moderation and bias.

When I say that Korra going into the Avatar State is cheating, I mean to say that they are not in a life-or-death situation like Aang was with Ozai. I am talking about a simple training session...or teaching session...or whatever the art is supposed to represent. I think it's training. And in firebending training...heh, well, the name speaks pretty much for itself.

I do think that fire is Korra's strongest element, and not just because she used a lot of firebending in Book 1. Indeed, there was not much water to go around, and Korra didn't carry a water skin. But from what I've seen of her firebending to her waterbending, I think that she would be a more capable firebender--again, just from what we've seen on the show. And she didn't HAVE to resort to firebending. She has earthbending.

I never denied that Korra could use any element she wants. I listed all the possibilities: in a fight where she could use all the elements, yes, she has a slight upper hand, simply because she can...but in a pure Agni Kai, say, Korra...doesn't stand a chance. :P

Oh? Really, now? I could counter that Korra isn't as great as you appear to think, either.

For instance, if they were battling in the Crystal Catacombs and Korra were allowed to use all four elements, then of course, Korra would win: the Crystal Catacombs, as seen in the Crossroads of Destiny, have an abundant amount of water, obviously earth (underground), and air is just there, as with fire. Korra evidently has a clear advantage, and it is very likely she could subdue Azula, if not with simply water- and firebending, but with earthbending as well--for that was why Katara lost to Azula, I think...she only had waterbending. And Azula took Aang by surprise in his...crystal thing...which was how she blasted him with lightning. But if Korra and Azula were only firebending, then Azula would probably gain the upper hand: as you said, she's a better firebender and Korra wouldn't be able to use the other elements to her advantage.

If the terrain were, say, Roku's island while the volcano were exploding but each combatant were only allowed to use firebending, it's hard to say on this one. Azula's native to fire, not to mention she's wickedly agile and fast. While Korra also demonstrated physical prowess in her fight against Tarrlok, it's simply not what she is inherently used to. And she has an advantage with the lava as well, with the fire and earth inside of it.

Then, if you're talking about something like the Fire Lord's throne room (not sure how that'd ever happen, but oh, well XD), Azula has the clear advantage in this, I'd think, even with Korra being able to bend all four elements. Korra doesn't have water to her advantage in this situation, and as shown with Aang, Azula can probably eventually batter through any earth shield that she puts up. She can avoid the air, and then, the princess may be able to overwhelm the Avatar with sheer prowess in firebending.

Getting to the good and evil part...have you ever considered why? Good always triumphs over evil. Avatar is a cartoon. In the real world, does good always win? I won't delve into the messy world of politics and such, but no, good does not always win. And in a real situation, it doesn't matter whether or not Korra is good and Azula is evil. That plays no factor whatsoever in a fight. They each fight in what they believe in and that is all. You can't even say that they are good or evil. Azula may think that Korra's evil while she's good, while Korra thinks in the retrospect. It's all a matter of perspective.

Actually, my favorite character is aang and I adore Azula, Im just being realistic. And doesn't the entire show revolve around the Avatar? If they werent aloud to use Avatar state in a battle it would just be stupid and unfair. 

We arent talking about fire bending training, we are talking about a battle. And what I am saying is that if Korra and Azula got into a REAL fight, Korra would be able to take Azula down. 

Actually, a lot of the time while she was fighting it was somewhere made of metal, so earth bending wasn't usually an option. You haven't seen enough of her water bending to say she was a better fire bender, so thats a pretty unfair assumption. But i think since season 2 is taking place is the southern water tribe we will see more water bending. 

In an agni kai, Azula probably would win. But Korra would put up a hell of a fight and Azula wouldnt have an easy win. I think you over estimate azulas strength and under estimate korras strength. But even so, strength and talent doesnt make up the fight. There are other properties that matter, like endurance and will power. Those are two major factors and I believe Korra has the upper hand in those areas. 

Your right, Korra isnt as great as I think. In fact, she is probably 10x greater. Dont even try to argue about that with me until all the seasons are done.

If it were only fire bending, Azula would probably win. BUT, i am here to talk real fights, not little cage matches with stupid rules. 

In the thrown room situation, you forgot to mention Korra can tap into Avatar state, which if she did she could defeat Azula. Especially is Korra was made angry or ticked off... as with aang we have seen how it is a HORRIBLE idea to mess with an angry avatar. However, if Korra was not able to enter the avatar state, your scenario may work.

Well, I dont see how you think your putting up a valid argument in the last paragraph. Avatar is a cartoon, so comparing it to real life is pointless. And good and evil is NOT a matter of perspective. At all. It's very hard to explain, but good and evil is not a point of view. People may THINK they are doing good when what they are doing is bad, but that does not change the fact that they are doing something wrong, it only changes the idea of it, not what it actually is. In the real world, good does not always win, and I know that. But I do believe in the end it won't matter. However thats a topic unrelated to this situation so Im not going to start and argument about that. I do believe Azula is evil, but I won't know for sure until I've read the search part 3, to know whats going on with Azula and what happens. So far I think Azula has gone too far down the wrong path to ever come back. The only reason I like Azula is because where she is now isnt completely her fault.

All right. Your favorite character is Aang; I can respect that. :) I personally like Korra a little better. Probably because I watched LoK before A:TLA. "You strange creature, you." x)

...? I still don't think you're getting my point. Some of my arguments are strictly relating to the artwork itself, which is called firebending training. Firebending training. No waterbending, no earthbending, no airbending, therefore, no Avatar State. I am not "neglecting" to acknowledge that it exists. I am merely stating that in the scenario I am envisioning, Korra should not be allowed to use the Avatar State, or the other three bending disciples, for that matter.

Well...if you put it that way...there's: Aang vs. Azula on the Fire Nation drill (The Drill). Aang vs. Azula in the Catacombs (Crossroads of Destiny). Gaang/Zuko/Iroh vs. Azula in "The Chase". Indeed, Aang was much less experienced at those points, but you cannot deny that she is an extremely formidable opponent...especially in the last battle mentioned. That was, like, seven (Gaang + Zuko/Iroh) against only Azula. Azula escaped without any injuries, while she severely harmed Iroh in the process. And technically, that would be somewhat like battling against an Avatar: Aang/airbending, Katara/waterbending, Toph/earthbending, Sokka/boomerang-bending (xD), Iroh-Zuko/firebending. All four elements were involved.

I don't think so, about the earthbending: Triple Threat Triad vs. Korra (Welcome to Republic City), Korra/Mako/Bolin vs. Lieutenant, Korra vs. Equalists (Aang Memorial Island), Team Avatar vs. Equalists (Dragon Flats Borough), Korra vs. Tarrlok (City Hall), Korra vs. Equalists (Tarrlok's mountain hideout; no victor anyways), Team Avatar/Tenzin vs. Equalists/mecha tanks (Police HQ),  and finally, Korra/Mako/Tenzin vs. Amon/Lieutenant (Equalist Victory Rally) were all opportunities for her to use earthbending, although she did not use it in some of the duels. Then, with metal; only: Korra vs. doorman (The Rally) and Korra/Lin vs. Equalists/Lieutenant (Pro-bending Arena Rooftop), Seven compared to two. Not really.

Korra certainly has the drive to put up a good fight in an Agni Kai. Once again, I will say that I believe that her firebending is exceptional. She would indeed put up a hell of a fight...but she still has much to learn about the art. And then Azula: avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Azula#Fi… That has all I have to say about her. I don't think I'm overestimating her by a lot. She really is a true master and a prodigy.

Jeez, I wasn't trying to . :P If all goes according to schedule, I'll take you up on that in, what, 2015, hmm?

If you rewatched the Battle of Tu Zin, I don't think that you would be saying that.

...I'm not going back into that again. Refer back to the second paragraph.

Avatar also got made into a crappy live-action movie. And yes, I do think that it's a matter of perspective. But providing examples for that would have me going into stuff about terrorism and religion, and I'm not going to venture onto any of those for fear that I unintentionally insult someone about it, which is infinitely worse than throwing jabs at each other in this admittedly petty but fun argument about Korra vs. Azula. :/ So let's just leave it at that.

I really doubt this fight wouldn't at least be a tie, with a slight advantage in favor of Korra. Aang was fighting her to a standstill, and remember that Korra 1) is much more capable in ways of physical combat 2) prodigy in ways of bending. Trielemental from three years old - in perspective Azula is the one with no chance.

Hmmm... I probably am not talented enough with words, or with describing art, to really write an official critique, but...

I think this coloring style looks like it can work pretty well on a full body action piece, but I think that a background is more needed for this style of picture, with this style of coloring? I dunno, maybe that's just me being a bit demanding and wanting a background. :XD: The coloring IS quite cool, though, and gives it a unique feel compared to the other different ways you color some of your other works.

Now for this picture specifically, I think the depth of the characters' positions in this picture, isn't quite as clear. This possibly is due to the coloring style, or just due to the poses themselves (I don't know, as I'm not good enough with shading to know if that can have that much of an impact on depth perception ^^; ). But I think for kicking each other as they are, it appears to me that Korra and Azula are too close to being on the "same dimensional plane", as like they're equal distance away from the "viewer". This makes it appear to be a somewhat awkward way for two people to be kicking at each other, at least to myself. ^^;

But overall, I still think I like this quite a bit. Very nice work!!
