** GroinAttack: She also struck an Equalist there as well.
*** While anatomically ineffective, Tenzin dispatches the last Mecha-Tank in this manner, as well, launching it upward with a particularly strong blast of Airbending.



* {{Fartillery}}: Meelo fartbends on an Equalist mook to take him down. Lucky for the mook he/she wore a gas mask.



* GreenEyedMonster: Justified, but Asami continues to manage it well (the car incident not withstanding) and makes it perfectly clear her issues are with Mako's behavior and the fact that he was not honest about his feelings, and not with Korra or her actions. It doesn't affect Asami's focus on the mission at all.

* WhamLine: A pair of them at the end, although it is not exactly the content but the ''context'':
--> ''Commander'': General, I've just received a wire from the Avatar; she says Amon and his forces have control of the city. How do you want to respond?
--> ''General'': [[Creator/DanteBasco Tell her we will be arriving in 3 days time,]] [[IdenticalGrandson and that I look forward to winning back Republic City. Together.]]
--> ''Commander'': As you wish, '''General Iroh'''.

* HeyItsThatVoice: General Iroh, Zuko's grandson, has the same voice actor as Zuko.



* InferredHolocaust:
** A police airship gets shot down and landing in water. But Amon has sabotaged all the rescue boats.
** During the seige of the city, at least two more police airships are seen crashing at very high speed into ''skyscrapers.'' While an airship isn't quite as fast, it still weighs as much, or more than... [[FridgeHorror A jumbo jet...]]
** The numerous bomb explosions around the city. Unless there are Chi-blockers and such helping people get to safety, Amon and the Equalists just killed a whole lot of them.

Once [[spoiler:the kids show up]], it's at least partially [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as the Equalists were probably not prepared (or, perhaps, [[PetTheDog will]][[WouldntHurtAChild ing]]) to fight [[spoiler:children]].
