* AcclaimedFlop: Throughout it's run, ''The Legend of Korra'' struggled to maintain consistent ratings with the actual target demographic. While Season 1 mantainted strong ratings, season 2's switch to Friday nights saw the series' ratings start to freefall. By season 3, ratings got low enough to the point where Nick completely pulled it off air, and ran the remainder of episodes they ordered exclusively online.

* DuelingDubs: The show has two Russian dubs made for two different channels, one of which was a VoiceoverTranslation. Both dubs seem to have the same script translations. Strangely, Korra's VA is the same in both dubs. Even more stangely, it's [[CrossDressingVoices the same VA that voiced Aang]] in WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender dub.
