*** It's HarsherInHindsight when you realize what happened to [[Creator/RobinWilliams her dad]], and it's almost synonymous with Kuvira's views on the fractured Earth Kingdom.

* NamesTheSame:
** There's a real person named Hiroshi Sato; a retired Japanese football player.
** Also, Varrick's a name that might be familiar-sounding to [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Bioware fans]].
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: While not closely visually related to their historical equivalents, some characters share features of famous people of the World War era (with one or two more modern examples).
** Varrick's eccentric mannerisms, quick temper, and business layout are very similar to that of American media mogul William Randolph Hearst. In the episode "Peacemakers", he furthers the similarities by openly filming the civil war and splicing it with fake footage to make it propaganda, a practice Hearst used in the Mexican theatre of WWI.
** Varrick can also be seen as an expy of Howard Hughes, since both men were incredibly prolific and highly eccentric inventors. Hughes was also a well known film tycoon and businessman.
** The Earth Queen is a dead ringer for the Empress Dowager [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empress_Dowager_Cixi Cixi]], known for her conservatism, autocratic rule, and - according to even the most charitable accounts - her immense wastefulness.
** After getting his head shaved, Zaheer bears a striking resemblance to his voice actor Music/HenryRollins.
** Hiroshi Sato after some years in jail looks a lot like Hayao Miyazaki.

LyingCreator: Bryke said there would be no more romance for Korra past Book 2. Then the finale [[spoiler: had her hook up with Asami.]] They later wrote lengthy essays about how they planned this all along, but many fans don't buy it and see it as PanderingToTheBase because it contradicts with their previous statements and actions.

** Asami was not going to last past Book 1, she was supposed to be join the United Forces. This is why she does not appear on any promotional material or even the official Nick website. Mike and Bryan also joked about her becoming romantically involved with Iroh II.

* DuelingDubs: The show has two Russian translations made for two different channels, one of which was a VoiceoverTranslation. Both translations seem to have almost the same script. The 2x2 voiceover only covers the first season, while the dub covers all four. When 2x2 started airing books 2-4, they used the dub instead of voiceover. Strangely, Korra's VA is the same in both the dub and voiceover. Even more stangely, it's [[CrossDressingVoices the same VA that voiced Aang]] in WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender dub.

** There were jokes that the new Firelord was named 'Zutara' by Zuko choosing to name her after Katara but giving it a Fire Nation twist by putting a "zu" in, thus finally making the Zutara "canon" in a way. Book 3 revealed her name as "Izumi" but she was indeed named in honor of Katara (Izumi means "spring of water").
