'Ultimate' Bending Moves
« on: January 03, 2015, 12:10:44 AM »
I remember very vaguely discussing at some point what the ultimate bending moves or abilities are for each of the elements. Just wondering what everyone's opinions are regarding what each ultimate ability is?

Here's what I think:
Water - bloodbending, easily.
Earth - probably metalbending, doesn't sound particularly aggressive though.
Fire - maybe lightning bending?
Air - this is the hardest one - maybe Zaheer's "oxygen" bending?

I'd say you're pretty much on the ball. Earth has lavabending too though now.

Air is difficult, it has a ton of potential and properties to it. You got that oxygen bending, there's also the air gliding, astral projection which I think  was explained as an airbending form? And then freaking flying itself which Zaheer accomplished. The last two though I guess deal with spiritual aspects that may not technically be airbending as much as spiritual. I mean water has that thing with stopping spirits and sending them back to their world.

I wonder if all the elements have untapped exclusive spiritual potential, but air is just ahead of them all because they have in fact tapped into their spiritual side.

Oh yeah I completely forgot about flying! I just find it very interesting that there's that whole spiritual side which unchanged the element - something to think about. Awesome

I know right? I'm so intrigued by the spiritual side of the elements now that I kinda wanna see a whole other new series that explores it. It could be so dang cool!! Especially since Korra kinda tackled both the spiritual and the technological progressives sides of bending. Most of it was the technical so I wanna see the former.

I remember seeing that on tumblr! XD

I completely agree with what everyone has said. Air is a bit difficult, but I think the "oxygen" bending is probably the ultimate move, in terms of what's deadliest. In terms of coolest though, I'd have to agree with Fenix about flying and astral projection and the moves that are more associated with the spiritual side of bending.

I think perhaps we could even say there are ultimate spiritual moves and then technical moves for each element. Maybe air is oxygen bending and then flying? Water's could be the spirit vanquishing thing and bloodbending. But earth and fire are much harder this way!

Maybe bending lightning would count for both for fire?
