** Korra's speech at the end of "The Last Stand" stating that her trauma from her fight with Zaheer and the long, painful recovery from it was "necessary" in order for her to grow and improve as a person has also proved to be divisive; though it's worth noting that coming to know compassion through suffering is one of the core tenets of Buddhism, and the series has always been centered around Eastern philosophy, to its detractors claiming that it expresses an implication that female characters[[note]]despite the fact that this has been the foundation of many great protagonists male and female alike[[/note]] can only grow from physical and emotional suffering.

** Despite being regarded as one of the show's best pair of episodes, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5gGEWqO_Ag a sizable part of the fanbase]] hate how "Beginnings" seems to contradict (though it doesn't) the established lore.
** At the same time, many fans get really upset when some parts of the fanbase assume that "Beginnings" ruined the franchise's lore and created plot holes when it actually filled in holes and respected the lore established by the previous series.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Korra in the first half of season 2. Faced with her father being falsely imprisoned on charges of conspiring to kill Unalaq, you'd expect to feel sympathetic for Korra's believing her father's denial of guilt. At least you would if she didn't decide the judge was corrupt based solely on that one denial and then chase down the judge ''and threaten to murder him'' if he doesn't tell her exactly what she wants to hear. Luckily she gets better in the second half of the season.

** Kya. While Aang was wrong to exhibit ParentalFavourism towards Tenzin at her expense, and the extent to which she was a BigSisterBully is never clearly shown, hearing her joke about beating Tenzin up when they were children, and him being afraid of her in the present day, does not win her sympathy points.

* HarsherInHindsight: Bolin's comment in episode 3 that Korra had better watch out for "heart-breaker" Mako seems harsh [[spoiler:when they break up in episode 5]].

** Bolin giving Ginger an unscripted kiss during the Nuktuk scenes - against her will, mind you - became a lot harder to watch in late 2017 ([[DudeNotFunny if it was ever easy to watch originally]]), when the entertainment industry was rocked by a wave of sexual abuse and assault allegations.

** Tarrlok taking advantage of fears from the equalists to rise in power can be pretty uncomfortable since conservative populists have taken to power the same way.

* DesignatedHero: The spirits. Book 2 goes in-depth on the history of the world and reveals that humanity was once confined to living in cities on the backs of lion-turtles, and the spirits viciously hated them and would try to kill them if they left (and could possess their bodies and horribly mutate them). The spirits, including Raava, all talk about how HumansAreBastards and are selfish and violent, and show no regard for their wellbeing even if humans haven't directly done anything to them. Then in Book 4, when Korra asks the spirits to help her defend Republic City from Kuvira, they flat out refuse and don't care what happens to the city or the people living there. Characters constantly talking about how humanity needs to learn to respect the spirits and live in harmony with them, but no one ever brings attention to the problem that the ''spirits'' are the ones practicing FantasticRacism towards humans even without Vaatu influencing them.

** Another fan idea was that Bolin would learn metalbending and become a cop. [[spoiler: Mako is a cop in Book 2.]]

** Prince Wu's suggestion that they take down Kuvira with a team of highly-trained badgermoles seems less stupid come ''Day of the Colossus''. It may not be ''feasible'' due to a lack of available highly-trained badgermoles on such short notice, but definitely not stupid.
