What is advanced air bending? by Katangaroo What is advanced air bending? by Katangaroo
Avatar (C) Bryke
Korra (C) Bryke
[posted 6.May.2012]

i was on tumblr going through shipping stuff and someone said "Korra is weak."

I thought "oh HELL no! Korra isn't weak, she the friggin AVATAR! She has four types of bending!"

When i was naming them i thought, 'no wait, then what are the metal benders?'

So i continued thinking 'oh shit, when korra gets advanced enough, she will have... 7 types of bending!'

water, fire, earth, air, for the main ones, then metal, blood, and lightning for advanced...

But that leaves the question "what does airbending become?"

any ideas?

(so i was watching amon identity theories when someone was talking about Aang teaching "energy bending" the ability to take someone's bending away.)

IMO now that i've heard about energy bending, i think it may be that. Air-->energy, simple enough, right?

(EDIT: if it were fartbending, then Meelo is secretly a Grand Master Airbender!)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Any suggestions for what air bending becomes?

I figured that Jinora's astral projection ability was an advanced form of airbending.

Suffocating people.

I might say Armbending, as demonstrated by Meelo, but Sokka did that too, albeit when he was hyped up on cactus juice.

Storm bending? Changing the weather, ending droughts, clearing or creating hurricanes... You'd need the patience and wisdom and spirituality of senior air benders to understand how a butterfly's wings can change the world and then not abuse the power.

Perhaps that information was lost when the Fire Nation committed Genocide against the Air Nomads.

Being able to bend gases like Helium, Hydrogen, Oxygen and such since air is just a bunch of gases mixed together in our atmospeare.

In some place (i don't remember where) i read that Aang once said the maximum airbending level is the waether

I don't know if it cold be true, but it think it have sense, the base will be that the benders could master the air pressure and with it I think could be controles de waether BUT..... i don know wich could be the limits of this bending, i mean, create rain? storms? tornados?

Abot the "size" of this... i think it could be like Storm form X-men, who can create all this in diferents sizes



Well, may be, XD

Sound bending? amplification of soundwave to make powerfull explosions. A bending judged immoral by the airbending monks?

well air in real life is hot air that "colds down" so how about a "temperature bending" you know heating AND colling things

Sound bending; compressed air that vibrates.

If "energybending" was the second bending for airbenders then all airbenders would be able to do it. Any airbender would be able to take away anyone else's bending. I don't think that sounds right because then they would become the superior benders of the world and everyone would fear them.

I think air bending is so varied in techniques that it doesn't need a secondary element. Where does sand bending come in, though? Maybe?

Same as earth bending. Sand is just rocks that have been tossed and eroded to the smallest possible size.

True. Toph seemed to have a problem bending it because it was so loose.

First theory: soundbending could work but im not saying it will work because yeah sound is still vibrations but probably if you use airbending you can probably move the sound to a different target.

Second theory: I just dont think fartbending would count as airbending because its mostly smell and probably there might be vibrations but to me... It seems weird to move fart or something.

Third theory: breath bending doesnt seem to fit. What does breathbending do? Do you just bend breath???

This is pretty much what i think...

yea sound bending is right but it wasn't used for combat it was used by aang twice to call the animals in ba si sang and the other to call for help when Zuko and Aang were trapped at the sun warrior temple. air bending is a defensive bending art btw. Thanks avatar wiki!!

sound bending and yes sound travels through the air in vibrations so if aang moves the air he can move the sound
