* CurbStompCushion: Unlike the other Earthbenders, Xin Fu is actually able to put up a fight against Toph. He puts her on the defensive for awhile, but we know he's screwed the minute Toph senses where he lands after dodges her attack.


Added DiffLines:

** Master Yu proudly admits that Toph is an amazing Earthbender. It doesn't stop him from going after her with a dangerous man to get a bounty.


Added DiffLines:

* TheWorfEffect: The Boulder is clearly a skilled Earthbender and somewhat easily defeats the other wrestlers. Toph comes along and defeats him even more easily.

** Her ability to sense vibrations only works if she is in physical contact with the ground (specifically it has to be made from rock-but later it extends to metal too). She cannot sense earth and metal in the air, which is how Aang sent her flying in one blast.

* [[{{Kayfabe}} Marks/Smarts]]: Sokka seems to completely buy into the Earth Rumble 6 storylines, including Fire Nation Man's supposed citizenship. Katara, on the other hand, is so skeptical of everything that she doesn't initially believe Toph is really blind.

Added DiffLines:

** Also when Toph "gets even" with Aang. Near the end of the episode, when Toph runs away from home to join the Gaang, she asks Aang to get down off Appa. When Aang landed, Toph used Earthbending to punt him into a tree; in a RewatchBonus, one can see the rock emerging from the ground hit Aang between the legs.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Jerkass}}: Lao Beifong considering the above trope. [[UngratefulBastard He doesn't care that Aang sacrificed himself to get Toph away from her kidnappers as long as Toph is safe, never mind the fact he's the Avatar, the world's hope.]]. He deludes himself that Toph should still be confined and banned the Gaang from his home. When Toph obviously runs away, her father hires two guys to get her back, deluding himself that Aang "kidnapped her".
