** A common criticism of Asami Sato is that despite being a part of the main Krew, she doesn't receive any development or storylines of her own beyond Book One, and largely remains an accessory SatelliteLoveInterest throughout the series [[spoiler:regardless of whether she's with Mako or Korra]]. Most of the qualities that make her stand out, such as her business skills and technological prowess, are subsumed by other more proactive characters such as Varrick or relegated to the background.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: While the announcement of the show continuing as a comic series was cause to celebrate, the creators also announced that [[spoiler: the Korrasami relationship would receive heavy focus.]] This seems to be to address the complaints that while many praise the relationship, very few feel there was a sufficient amount of focus on it.
%%BrokenBase requires at least to sides.
%%* BrokenBase: The spirits from Season 2 are back and are just as [[CantArgueWithElves annoying, morally superior and obnoxious as ever]], with plot previews indicating they will not face any comeuppance for their actions and it's up to Korra to placate them. This has soured many but others believe it to be an open plot thread that needs to be addressed.

Added DiffLines:

* WinBackTheCrowd: ''The Legend of Korra'' is this for Nickelodeon itself as the network drew criticism after ''The Last Airbender'' ended and there were barely any other cartoons that were as good. Then ''Korra'' came along, and brought back many of the fans that had lost faith in the channel.


Added DiffLines:

* WinBackTheCrowd: After the lackluster reception to Book 2 (except for "Beginnings", which was universally acclaimed), many people either dropped the series or did not expect the series to be able to pull itself back up again. But Book 3 managed to do away with the problems that cluttered the previous seasons, created a tighter, focused storyline, and made most of the characters develop wonderfully. Because of this, many people who were no longer on board with the series started watching it again.

** Books 1 and 2 have been a critical darling among professional reviewers, but there's been no shortage of fan criticism, especially towards the latter. Season 1 was mainly criticized for pacing issues, whereas Season 2 caught flack for frustrating story/characterization choices being particular points of contention, as well as seemingly [[RetCon|ning]] the Avatar's backstory.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Avatar Wan only appears in two episodes, but those two episodes are considered among the best the show ever put out, leaving Wan one of the most popular new characters

Added DiffLines:

** 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 it (at fist sight) contradicts most of the established lore.


Added DiffLines:

** Although "Beginnings" is considered one of the series highlights, no small number of fans hate how it seemingly contradicts the lore established in ATLA and ignore it for that reason.

* UnexpectedCharacter: In the third season finale, three dead villains appear to Korra in a nightmarish hallucination with each of their voice actors getting a line in just to jolt the audience who had become accustomed with their absence.

* UnexpectedCharacter:
** Oh, yes. Prior to his appearance, there were ''zero'' hints that the now over-a-hundred years old Iroh would show up. Both times after that, he just arbitrarily shows up to offer helpful advice, even lampshading it the third time.
** The appearance of long-dead Zhao comes completely out of nowhere in the season 2 finale and lasts only a few seconds.

** And then there are the similarities between Amon and Lelouch from CodeGeass. They are both masterminds hiding behind masks to conceal their identity, which contradicts with the propaganda they feed their followers, and their uniformed mooks fight against the establishment by using non-conventional tactics and increasingly more powerful technology given to them by a genius scientist/inventor. Hell, Amon's first appearance with the line of Equalists behind him is practically the same shot as Lelouch first appearing as Zero with the black knights behind him.

* AwardSnub: The two episodes of "Beginnings" are generally seen as the best episodes of the franchise except for the Book 3 Finale of ''Korra'', but it didn't win ''any'' awards at all, which was met with quite a negative reaction.
