** Mako made even greater strides in his CharacterDevelopment than in Book 3. While still ultimately remaining a heroic example of a character that fans LoveToHate, he at least regained a good deal of respect for admitting how he was a jerk for pulling an {{Archie}} on both Asami and Korra, as well as coming just seconds shy of making what would have been ''the'' biggest {{Badass}} HeroicSacrifice in the entire franchise. To top it off, his last scene with Korra affirms that he is happy to follow her as a friend, and is heavily coded to suggest that [[spoiler:he acknowledges and is supportive of her developing relationship with Asami.]]

** The discovery by Bolin [[spoiler: that she is [[ANaziByOtherName taking people (Earthbender and not) to "re-education camps"]]]] don't win her any favors, either.

** To finish it off, Vaatu bursting out of the tree and hammily proclaiming his freedom "at last after 10,000 years!" is...rather reminiscent of [[Series/PowerRangers Rita Repulsa]] after emerging from her Dumpster prison.

** And then there's Varrick. We're supposed to feel sorry for him as he suffers all manner of angst over Kuvira taking his inventions and uses them for military purposes [[spoiler:and he is led to believe that Zhu Li has betrayed him in favor of Kuvira]], but even with CharacterDevelopment Varrick remains incredibly vain and narcissistic, and he never did pay for his crimes in season two, and then [[spoiler:he marries Zhu Li, a woman he mistreated for years and this is treated as a happy ending that the other characters cheer for]]. Again, how much sympathy does Varrick really deserve?

** Perhaps it shouldn't be surprising that grumpy old granny Toph Bei Fong also has some of this going for her. We're supposed to feel bad for her when she and Lin are finally together again for the first time in thirty years and things don't exactly go smoothly. Although Toph does admit she was a bad mother and says she's proud of Lin, it does not change the fact that Toph still acts like a nasty, arrogant old woman who is generally disrespectful towards people because she thinks it's funny. And it is still her fault that the estrangement happened in the first place due to her insensitive hypocrisy.
** Suyin, Baatar JR. and grumpy old granny Toph aren't the only Bei Fongs who come off looking less than sympathetic this season. Baatar Sr., Huan, Wei and Wing show absolutely no sympathy or compassion for the countless people who suffered outside their city due to Suyin's refusal to get involved in reuniting the Earth Kingdom, which is what led to Kuvira and Baatar Jr.'s defections in the first place, and as near as the audience can tell Baatar Sr., Huan, Wei and Wing never even so much as question whether or not Suyin was right to refuse to lend aid to the struggling Earth Kingdom settlements before Kuvira and Bataar Jr. went out and decided to "fix" the problem themselves. Instead, as near as the audience can tell, Suyin's loving husband and other three genius sons were more than content to follow their great matriarch's lead and live it up in the lap of luxury following their pursuits (Huan in particular is so hung up on his art that he doesn't even seem to realize that there ''is'' a problem outside their city). It wasn't until ''their'' city was threatened by Kuvira that they actually took an interest in what was going on outside their home. The audience is meant to sympathize with the outrage and indignity that Suyin and the rest of her family suffer when Kuvira finally does conquer their city and imprisons them, but they pretty much brought it on themselves, so how much sympathy do they really deserve?

** Baatar Jr., [[spoiler:after Kuvira tries to kill him along with most of the main cast. Baatar is devastated that Kuvira would try to kill him, and he realizes he has alienated his whole family who might never forgive him, though Suyin assures him they will in time. This being his last scene, it's hard to accept that he would be so EasilyForgiven when up until now he was fully complicit in Kuvira's actions.]]

* BadassDecay: Katara was an ActionGirl in Avatar who resented being sent to the healing huts, now in Korra she never gets involved in fights and is a highly regarded healer with her combat skills never being mentioned. Some fans, especially those who watched Korra first, could not believe that the Katara in Avatar was the same person in Korra due to how different she became.
** Toph also refuses to fight in battles because she doesn't care for it and is "too old", this totally goes against her previously established love for fighting and the age excuse comes off as flimsy when there have been many elderly fighters in the franchise before. Zuko continues to fight as he travels the world and the Order of the White Lotus from the original series all continued to kick butt at very old ages - Bumi was over 112 years old. [[DoubleStandard Perhaps this rule only applies to old women.]]
