* BigBeautifulMan: Bolin.



-->'''Tenzin:''' You ''must'' promise me your teenage years won't be like this!

* FanGirl: Apparently, Bolin has a ''ton'' of them.
** One of them can even be heard screaming very loudly "I love you Bolin!"

* FlexibleTourneyRules: Averted; Korra makes two fouls in about as many seconds in her first match, since no one bothered to explain the rules to her. And although [[AintNoRule technically there's no rule that says the Avatar can't compete]], they do restrict her to only waterbending.

Bolin's first scene. May be one of the best [[EstablishingCharacterMoment character introductions]] ever.



* NotSoAboveItAll[=/=]NotSoStoic: After complaining about how disgraceful and frivilous Pro-Bending is for the entire episode, Tenzin can't help but cheer when Korra wins a match. He quickly tries to pretend it never happened.

* OffscreenTeleportation: Somehow Tenzin makes it from Air Temple Island to the Pro Bending Ring in the 30 seconds between the match resuming and Korra getting knocked into the pool below.
** He's an airbending master, and the arena is just a few kilometers away. He could probably fly there himself with fair ease.
* OhCrap: Tenzin's face shows this trope perfectly when he overhears the White Lotus listening to the radio and learns that Korra is playing in the pro-bending playoff.

* ShipTease: Bolin is obviously smitten with Korra and tries to impress her when he meets her, and there's the HeldGaze that Korra and Mako share after the match and they are (finally) on somewhat friendlier terms with each other than they were previously.
** Not to mention the ending scene with Korra and Mako staring across the bay at the other's place of abode. While they might not be thinking of each other, the way the scene is set up - soft lighting, upbeat, lilting music, and the focus on those two characters in particular - is clearly meant to foreshadow a romantic arc between them.

-->'''Mako:''' ''(to Korra)'' Don't do anything too fancy or aggressive... in fact, don't do anything - just try not to get knocked off the ring!
* TwitchyEye: Tenzin displays this on hearing that Korra has participated in a pro bending match.

* WhyWeCantHaveNiceThings: Korra destroys the 2000 year old airbending training device out of frustration.
--> '''Tenzin:''' That was a 2000 year old historical treasure! What is ''wrong'' with you?!

* CanonImmigrant: The airbending-training device with the spinning panels doesn't appear in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', but it did appear in the (poorly received) film ''TheLastAirbender'', which has an AlternateContinuity.
