[[caption-width:350:How's that for an EstablishingCharacterMoment?]]

Considering how popular the first series was, it's no surprise we should expect the same treatment from Aang's literal SpiritualSuccessor.

''Please add entries in the following format:''

* The meme. [=[[labelnote:Explanation]]The explanation behind the meme.[[/labelnote]]=] [[labelnote:Example]]Like this.[[/labelnote]]
----

* [[http://bryankonietzko.tumblr.com/post/23083601845/it-seems-like-on-tumblr-you-cant-reblog-an-answer Lin's father is Azula.]]
* Bolin's stage-whispered "''The'' Avatar!", the first line heard from the new series.
* Buttering bagels.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A [[http://freedomfighters-sc.deviantart.com/art/Butter-That-Bagel-Bryan-288075199 story]] about what Bryan Konietzko was doing when the opening for the series leaked, ([[http://bryankonietzko.tumblr.com/post/23767353765/yeah-i-know-this-photo-is-stupid-ironic-b-boy which wasn't actually true]]) has made this a joke about getting mad in response to a leak, or just ''Avatar''-related anger in general.[[/labelnote]]
* Korra's [[AMinorKidroduction introduction]] as the Avatar: "I'm the Avatar! You gotta ''deal'' with it!"
* No [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Bender]] is safe. [[labelnote:Explanation]]When Tenzin says this line, Bender appears in the bottom of an image with an OhCrap on his face.[[/labelnote]]
* Lin Beifong making the EyeAmWatchingYou gesture at Korra as she walks out with Tenzin, and Korra returning the gesture, but with a [[http://media-worlds.theotaku.com/23-4-20120415024251.jpg much more ridiculous rage face]]; as well as Lin shrugging with the most "whatever" expression ever animated afterwards (after initially having a "What the Hell?" look on her face).
* Many fans proudly identify as [[MemeticSexGod Korrasexual]].
** Asamisexual, Makosexual, Bolinsexual, and Linsexual are starting to float around too.
*** Shortly after he first appeared, even though he had ''two lines'', Irohsexual was ''already'' being tossed around.
* "Korra, get in my office! I need pictures! Pictures of Spider-Man/The Avatar/The Blue Spirit!" [[note]] Tenzin is voiced by JKSimmons.[[/note]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnEbvTqouME Tenzin doesn't want your damn lemons!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2VF_QKK4w0 Be]] the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUQjY-iHiUE leaf!]] So popular that the phrase "you only live once" has been co-opted to become "you only leaf once."
** Meelo in general.
* Fucking Hasook. [[note]] After his bad performance as one of the Fire Ferrets and subsequently leaving them (which nearly got them disqualified), the fandom has taken to blaming Hasook for everything bad that happens on the show.[[/note]]
* According to a certain commentator, Mako and Bolin are still "fresh and juicy".
* Mako is Batman! Really, there's proof! [[note]] In episode three, it's revealed that they lost their parents when Mako was eight years old when a mugger killed them right in front of him. This, of course, led to Mako being declared Franchise/{{Batman}}.[[/note]]
** EVERYBODY IS BATMAN! [[note]] Comparisons to Franchise/{{Batman}} were already being made before Mako's revelation. This and the fact that Amon's backstory is apparently similar to that of Mako and Bolin's cued this saying.[[/note]]
*** Except Chief Lin Beifong, who IS SPIDER-MAN! [[note]] After ''And The Winner Is...'', people immediately began making comparisons between the metalbending chief of police and the wall crawler.[[/note]]
**** Comparing Lin to various superheroes every episode has become quite common. First she was "[[SpiderMan Spider-Lin]]", then "[[{{Wolverine}} Wolverlin]]" in "[[WolverineClaws The Aftermath]]" and "[[IronMan Iron Lin]]" after the dressing montage in "Out of the Past". Basically, Lin is ''all'' of the superheroes!
*** [[HilariousInHindsight And now Tenzin needs pictures of her.]]
**** [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Also, the X-men may have caught a little public favor.]][[note]] [[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Astonishing_X-Men#Issue_7 J. Jonah Jameson'll be tongue-kissing Spider-Man before the X-Men catch a little public favor.[[/note]]
*** Now there's "[[IronMan Iroh Man]]". [[note]] In reference to Iroh II using firebending to "fly".[[/note]]
*** And prior to Amon's facial scarring [[spoiler:was revealed to be fake]], Amon is SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom.
*** Parallels between Amon and [[TheDarkKnightRises Bane]] have also been made.
*** From Book 2: Tonraq's Exile [[spoiler: via causing a lot of destruction]] and Unalaq's shifty-looking appearance makes one think of [[{{Film/Thor}} Thor and Loki respectively]].
*** In season 3 the Bane mantle was passed on to Zaheer.
* Mako's garnered quite a few different interpretations by the fandom. The last scene of him looking out the window brooding in the second episode has gotten people to hilariously dub over, or caption, what he's thinking. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfJ8XT1ynlg Case in point]]. There's also "Tsundere" Mako, "Uke" Mako who ought to just stay in the kitchen and let Korra do all the work, and Beautiful Mako Problems.
** And now, [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m71b39GRhO1r1nxuqo1_1280.jpg Mermako]].[[note]]Spawned out of a joke fic with Mako as Ariel the Little Mermaid.[[/note]]
** The Equalist Mako concept has gained popularity since FanFic/TintedGreen.
* Comedy Amon. [[note]] [[http://i.imgur.com/bXmun.jpg A series of panels featuring Amon,]] [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m2x9qp0rdM1rttfquo2_250.jpg in which he tells a (presumably) bad joke,]] [[http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g160/Space_Jawa/Bad%20Joke%20Amon/NoFirebendingJoke.jpg gets no response from the assumed audience,]] [[http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g160/Space_Jawa/Bad%20Joke%20Amon/NoAirbendingJoke.jpg and then generally finishes by saying]] [[http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g160/Space_Jawa/Bad%20Joke%20Amon/NoWaterbendingJoke.jpg "Well, I thought it was funny."]][[/note]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84lw4ouziF4&feature=youtu.be Also comes in video format.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdMMKRW4gnk&feature=plcp video number two]]: Amon realizes no one likes his jokes, and vows to get rid of all bending!
--->''[[SpringtimeForHitler Spri~ngtime~ for A~mon~, and Equalists!]]''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TeR_bs1o4s video number three]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLkQfmUEyvk&feature=relmfu And one final video.]]
** And SteveBlum [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9HC7jMlYb0 gets in on it]].
** [[http://boomeraanged.tumblr.com/post/26878466296/amon-just-wants-someone-to-laugh-at-his-jokes Korra does not like his jokes.]]
** The Book 3 version of this meme is Bad Joke Kya. [[labelnote: Explanation]] Screencaps from "Original Airbenders", featuring Kya following in Uncle Sokka's footsteps and unleashing myriads of puns. Found [[http://jinoras-light.tumblr.com/tagged/bad-joke-kya here]]. [[/labelnote]]
* Bad Luck Bolin. [[note]] It seems that no matter what Bolin does, he will always have [[http://blondescrewball.tumblr.com/post/22088391990/bad-luck-bolin-made-by-blondescrewball-tumblr-com horrible things happen to him.]][[/note]]
* [[ButtMonkey Where's Sokka's Statue!?]] [[note]]Occasionally throughout season one, statues of Aang, Zuko, and Toph would be shown prominently as they were founders of Republic City. This caused the fandom to collectively question why Sokka was getting snubbed. The writers took note of this and finally displayed Sokka's statue in season 2. Naturally this prompted the fandom to start questioning why Katara didn't have a statue either.[[/note]]
* Asami's HairFlip, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9MUTmJdwFA seen here]].
** [[http://quillery.tumblr.com/post/22821368352/so-i-spent-all-day-rotoscoping-this-totally And Tahno got in on the action too apparently]]
* Asami as Carmen Sandiego, [[http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=asami+carmen+sandiego&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8]]
* Perfect Man Bolin/Feminist Bolin. [[note]] [[http://diylol.com/meme-generator/perfect-man-bolin/memes Speaks for itself.]][[/note]]
* '''[[NoYou YOU'RE]]''' a bad idea! [[note]] Generally used as a TakeThat against Mako, as it was used by Bolin in the show when he was "drunk" off of noodles.[[/note]]
* Since there are plenty of creeps so far in the show, it's no surprise that there would be a lot of JustForPun MemeticMolester memes floating around. Here's one of [[http://data1982.tumblr.com/post/22019209884 Amon]], and one of [[http://araiyoudechan.tumblr.com/post/22575969614/fangirlingforeverz-screams-flails-dies-etc Tahno]].
* The line in which Tahno offers "[[DoubleEntendre private lessons]]" to Korra was made into an [[StupidStatementDanceMix electro house remix]] on Tumblr. [[http://chongthenomad.tumblr.com/post/22482779323/private-lessons-feat-tahno-electro-house The song spread like wildfire]].
** All of [[http://chongthenomad.tumblr.com/music Chongthenomad's]] house remix songs qualify.
* Substituting Bolin's name into different songs is popular, such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G96XkBoSe1A Bolin in the Deep]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifUcUGK1x0k They see me Bolin.]]
** This, of course, isn't limited to Bolin. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdIVAviQV58 Somebody that I used, Tahno]] for example.
* [[http://bryankonietzko.tumblr.com/post/21833245381 Every time you leak something from an episode of Korra, Koh steals a kitten's face.]] [[note]] When Bryan Konietzko found out fans leaked episode 4 online, his response was a cat macro with this line and a kitten with a shopped-out face.[[/note]]
* [[http://domkorra.tumblr.com/post/22832708740 Korra and Mako]] [[http://thinkhappythoughtsx.tumblr.com/post/22768054143 kiss]] [[http://on-your-own.tumblr.com/post/22815955848 each other]] or [[http://pokemonmasterkimba.tumblr.com/post/22767276141/i-dont-even-know-what-im-doing-anymore-fandom other people]] while [[http://pokemonmasterkimba.tumblr.com/post/22830044391/well-this-is-awkward-korrakorrakorra a third character]] walks in on them, wearing a heartbroken expression while holding a bouquet of roses and Pabu is around their neck. [[note]] This happened in episode 5, when Korra and Mako kissed, and Bolin witnessed it by accident.[[/note]]
** This meme even ended up [[http://bryankonietzko.tumblr.com/post/23041805784/archejoiyo-did-someone-do-this-already-or featured on Bryan Konietzko's tumblr]].
** [[http://atla-annotated.tumblr.com/post/56199037278/purpleneenee-sailorstephy Even more]] hilarious versions of the meme here. Especially [[GirlOnGirlIsHot the last one]], which is now HilariousInHindsight since [[spoiler: it's canon.]]
* [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3kd15Twb51rtopnso1_250.gif "Makooooooo-oh."]] [[note]] A random guy calling out Mako's name in episode 5 (only to be ignored) has been christened "Mof", which stands for "Mako's only fan".[[/note]]
* Mako's one true love is [[CargoShip money or his scarf]].
* [[CommercialPopUp Inappropriate Timing Spongebob]]. [[http://korravangelist.tumblr.com/post/22926491820/wow-spongebob-youre-a-fucking-asshole-korra He laughs at your pain.]] [[note]] More of a SpongeBobSquarePants meme rather than a Korra meme, a screenshot showed a [=SpongeBob=] promo laughing while Korra falls back into the Pro-bending Arena.[[/note]]
** There are also [[http://korravangelist.tumblr.com/post/22931842893/inappropriate-timing-spongebob other instances from Korra]], [[http://korravangelist.tumblr.com/post/22953848647/inappropriate-timing-spongebob-atla-edition-i the original series]], [[http://victyrion.tumblr.com/post/22954444026 Disney]] [[http://lt-alenko.tumblr.com/post/23040745262 Mass Effect 3]], [[http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/inappropriate-timing-spongebob and many more]].
** [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3ycp6Kpup1rsf12oo1_500.jpg Payback]] [[http://i2.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/304/830/76a.gif time]]!
** It's also oddly reminiscent of [[http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/6924/zsponge.png this screenshot]] from the airing of [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheBeach The Beach]].
* [[MyParentsAreDead Everybody's parents]] being killed by a firebender. [[note]] Mako and Bolin's, Amon's (but as an UnreliableNarrator), and Asami's mother.[[/note]]
** Some fans have joked that all these people were killed by the same person, named [[StevenUlyssesPerhero A. Firebender]]. And he's a waterbender for some reason.
*** [[spoiler: Partial credit for whoever started this meme, since Amon is a waterbender and claims his parents were killed by a firebender. He [[DeathByDespair kinda did kill his father]] (though some would say his father had it coming) by running away.]]
** Due to the similarities in appearance and the manner in which they were killed, many fans claimed that [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Lust was Asami's mother and Roy Mustang was the Fire-bender that killed her]]
* Even his hair is broken! [[note]] After Tahno lost his bending to Amon in a BreakTheHaughty moment, he later appeared with way worse hair than his old stylized look.[[/note]]
* "Get in, loser! We're going Equalist hunting/shipping/etc!" [[note]] The gif of Asami skidding up in the "Korramobile" or a shot of everyone inside from the preview for episode eight. Sometimes shown with a side character replying to the offer. A reference to a scene from ''Film/MeanGirls''.[[/note]]
* A growing number of fans have taken to identifying the real-world counterparts to the cars seen in the show.
** On that note: Team Avatar's transport from the start was almost universally agreed upon to be called the Korramobile.
* "I Hope Tarrlok [bad inconvenience here, such as 'drinks orange juice after brushing his teeth']" jokes have sprung up en masse after episode 8.[[note]]Similar to the "I hope Rick Santorum... meme".[[/note]]
** After the [[spoiler: reveal of Tarrlok's past and sacrifice in the]] finale, "I Hope Tarrlok" [better hopes] sprung up.
** Examples can be seen in the [[http://hopes-for-tarrlok.tumblr.com/ Hopes-for-Tarrlok Tumblr]].
** Now [[http://www.quickmeme.com/i-hope-mako/?upcoming Mako has his own]]. [[http://i-hope-mako.tumblr.com/post/26156370465/submitted-by-margaritas-and-microwave-pizzas Even has its own Tumblr]].[[note]] Due to many fans being displeased with his behavior during the show.[[/note]]
* Avatar Kyoshi giving Korra [[AxCrazy overly violent advice]], or [[InLoveWithYourCarnage reveling in the destruction Korra causes]], including a [[http://asklittlebloodykyoshi.tumblr.com/ blog]] based on the idea.
* Using "doozy" to refer to every intense episode [[note]]Before it was released, Bryan said episode 8, easily one of the most intense so far, would be a "doozy". Furthermore, it refers to a line from episode 2. "Grab your kids and grab your snacks, because this match is gonna be a doozy."[[/note]]
* [[http://screwtherulesihavesmosh.tumblr.com/post/24617362196/only-two-more-days IS IT SATODAY YET?]] [[note]]In America, new Korra episodes air on Saturdays, and it's a very suspenseful show, so the fans get a little anxious during the weekdays. The name is derived from the Asami/Hiroshi Sato family name.[[/note]]
** [[http://kitteh-pants.tumblr.com/post/23037920783/happy-amonday IT'S AMONDAY]] [[note]]Same concept; derived from Amon and Monday, as Mondays are the days that the new episodes are put up on Nick's website[[/note]]
* Amon is a [[MemeticMolester rapist]].
* "But first, let me [[http://www.quickmeme.com/Councilman-Sokka/ tell you about my boomerang]]." [[note]]a reference to Councilman Sokka's speech during Yakone's trial, during which he couldn't seem to resist bragging about taking out Combustion Man.[[/note]]
* Meelo and [[Series/{{Firefly}} Wash]]. [[http://www.funnyjunk.com/channel/bendingtime/Dammit+Meelo/MBcTGZO/]][[note]]Both characters are known for quotes involving leaves.[[/note]]
* Amon is Amonster.
** Amon puns are running rampant in general. [[note]]Amon the edge of glory, Amon a horse, Amon a boat ([[spoiler:This becomes HarsherInHindsight when he dies on a boat in the season finale.]]), etc.[[/note]]
* Amon: "I am the solution."
* "But everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked." [[note]]Fan reuse of Katara's narration from the original series to describe General Iroh's fleet showing up at the end of episode 10 to retake Republic City from the Equalists. Sort of a fan-made IronicEcho. (Or is it �Irohnic� Echo?) [[spoiler: Amusingly, Iroh's fleet was wiped out in minutes.]] [[/note]]
** In Book Two this became "But everything changed when the [[spoiler: Water Tribe attacked]]." [[note]]Referencing the events at the end of the second episode of Book Two.[[/note]]
* Lin is my hero. [[note]] Lin Beifong's HeroicSacrifice to assure the safety of Tenzin and his family. Meelo's response? "That lady is my hero." [[/note]]
* A lot of people are also claiming Iroh II is secretly a [[http://theradiantlin.tumblr.com/post/25340003350/the-last-enemy-is-death-actual-disney-prince Disney Prince]]
** Not to mention that the "Honor" jokes made a comeback, including (although that one is a bit older) the FanNickname for [[spoiler: Zuko's daughter:]] Honora.
* Uninterested husband. [[note]]The husband of the councilwoman that only responds with "(something), dear" to everything she says.[[/note]]
* Comparing the Lieutenant to Team Rocket or claiming that he'll be sleeping on the couch. [[note]]The Lieutenant hasn't been very successful as of late in capturing the Avatar or Team Avatar.[[/note]]
* As of Endgame, [[http://www.quickmeme.com/Weve-got-Naga/?upcoming We've got Naga]]
* [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Oh no, he's hot!]] [[note]]Reactions to Amon's surprising attractiveness have inspired gifs and comments.[[/note]]
* Avatar Fatty/Fatvatar/Cakebender [[note]]One of the past avatars (an Air Nomad) looked noticeably overweight. The jokes wrote themselves.[[/note]]
** Avatar [[{{Disney/Aladdin}} Jafar]][[note]]A past avatar (presumably from the Fire Nation) with similar facial hair, pointy shoulder-pads and a tall hooded hat.[[/note]]
* Korra [[http://i46.tinypic.com/zvx4s1.jpg shipping chart]][[note]] [[http://i.imgur.com/yWk3I.png Like so]] [[/note]]
* [[http://avatarparallels.tumblr.com/ Avatar Parallels]][[note]]Comparing scenes from both series.[[/note]]
* Mermako. [[note]]Drawings and photoshops of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Mako as a mermaid]].[[/note]]
* Making gifs of the scene of Korra's horrendously shocked reaction when Ikki blabs to Asami that Korra likes Mako.
** Likewise, a follow-up scene, Ikki's feral reaction after Korra locks the door on her.
* "Iroh Man," named after Iroh's rocket boot-like firebending in episode 12 that draws straight from the IronMan playbook.
** For that matter, the shock gauntlets Amon's henchmen tote around have led to a ton of ''IronMan'' jokes about ripping off his weapons.
** Amon is Tony Stark.
*
--> '''Korra:''' If you're a waterbender, why are you white?\\
'''(random character):''' [[Film/MeanGirls OH MY GOD KORRA, YOU CAN'T JUST ASK PEOPLE WHY THEY'RE WHITE.]]
** This one's making a comeback with Bolin's "Nuktuk, Hero of the South" mover.
* SHUT THE FUCK UP ASAMI CAN'T YOU SEE KORRA IS UPSET BECAUSE SHE LOST THREE OF HER FOUR SUPER POWERS [[note]] Comes from the ImageBoards where someone posted a picture of Asami saying something bad that's happened to her [[http://i.imgur.com/uno9IEe.png before being interrupted by someone else and yelled at for not paying attention to Korra's problem]]. [[http://i.imgur.com/K6Djkr8.png Here's a different result from another thread]]. [[/note]]
* "Wait, did [X] just die?" "You know, it was really unclear." [[note]]In the original show, the character Jet was very subtly killed off due to censorship, leading to debates on whether he was dead or not. When the Ember Island Players play reenacts his death, it has the characters lampshading the uncertainty of it. Censorship of deaths is very much alive and well in ''Korra'', so this joke gets pulled out quite a bit.[[/note]]
** "Wait, did [[spoiler:the Lieutenant]] just die?" "You know, it was really unclear."[[note]]In the first season finale he was bloodbended, thrown against the wall, and never seen again. Fans suspect he was killed, but the show does not confirm or deny it.[[/note]]
** "Wait, did Mako [[spoiler:even break up with Asami]]?" "It was really unclear." [[note]] Mako and Asami's break up was ambiguous to a lot of fans, leading to people wondering if Mako and Korra kissed while he was still in a relationship. A later episode both confirmed that they'd broken up at that point and lampshaded the ambiguity of it.[[/note]]
** "Wait, did the [[spoiler:Earth Queen]] just die? "Y'know, it was really unclear." [[note]]Despite the gruesome way in which Zaheer murdered Hou-Ting, every subsequent mention of the death used phrases like "took down" or "brought down", making for one of the most bizarre uses of NeverSayDie in programming.[[/note]]
** "Wait, are [[spoiler:Korra and Asami]] in a relationship now?" "You know, it was really unclear." [[note]]The final scene is shot to heavily imply a budding romance, paralleling the final scene of ''ATLA'' with Aang and Katara, but never explicitly confirms it, just short of an on-screen kiss.[[/note]]
* Almost from the second he was introduced, people have been making jokes about how "Wan" sounds like "one".
* "You amuse me. I will make you mine." with regards to Bolin.
* AUGH AUGH AUGH [[labelnote:Explanation]] Eska and Desna's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFrmEk2mTjQ hilariously awkward]] laugh is sometimes written as such. [[/labelnote]]
* Well that Eska-lated quickly. [[note]] In response to Eska's NotSoStoic {{Yandere}} moment at the end of "Civil War, Part 2." [[/note]]
* [[http://sherbies.tumblr.com/post/62106049551 Dammit, Unalaq!]] [[note]] Chief Unalaq has an unfortunate tendency to be a jerk at the most inopportune moments. [[/note]]
* Meelo is a [[{{Pokemon}} Pokey-mon]] master. [[labelnote:Explanation]] In ''Peacemakers'' Tenzin teaches Meelo how to train his pet lemur Pokey.[[/labelnote]]
* [[IronMan Varrick is Tony Stark and Zhu Li is JARVIS.]]
** Or alternatively, Pepper.
* Nuktuk, Hero of the South![[labelnote:Explanation]]The name of the ShowWithinAShow that Bolin stars in.[[/labelnote]]
* I am sex and melancholy.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A description of Mako based on [[http://peteysprivatefeels.tumblr.com/post/60947426883/i-went-to-the-danish-nickelodeon-website-and-i this tumblr post]][[/labelnote]]
* [[spoiler:Varrick]] is behind ''everything.''[[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]]Following his villain reveal in "The Sting," a certain image board exploded with wild "theories" about Varrick secretly funding Amon, hiring the firebenders that killed Asami's mom, giving Yakone plastic surgery, etc.[[/labelnote]]
* Avatar Aladdin[[labelnote:Explanation]]Due to the preview clip of Wan for The Beginnings: Part 1, people have been noting the similarities between him and [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Disney/Aladdin Disney's Aladdin]]. [[/labelnote]]
** Wan jump ahead of the breadline... [[labelnote:Explanation]] Wan's introductory scene is quite similar to Aladdin's introductory song. See Wan puns, below.[[/labelnote]]
* Wan puns are becoming the new Amon puns. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Fans are substituting Wan in various words and phrases (e.g. "wanderful", "[[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants he was number wan]]", "wan hour premiere", etc).[[/labelnote]]
* Being Asami is suffering. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Asami Sato seems to just keep on going through hardship, like a certain [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica pink haired magical girl.]] [[/labelnote]]
** Or Asami Abuse[[labelnote:Explanation]]In series a lot of bad things seem to happen to Asami, from losing her only family to having her company stolen. So some forums have just continued this trend of everything going wrong into Asami's future. Often adding that no one seems to care.[[/labelnote]]
* Vaatu was the original Reaper.[[labelnote:Explanation]] Vaatu's shape, color, [[EvilSoundsDeep deep voice]], superior attitude and [[DroneOfDread roaring]] [[WaveMotionGun energy beams]] make him reminiscent of ''Franchise/MassEffect'''s Reapers (minus the living machine aspect, of course).[[/labelnote]]
* "Zhu Li, do the thing!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Varrick's CatchPhrase has proven to be rather popular, especially on Tumblr, where "do the thing" was already a popular form of BuffySpeak before his first appearance.[[/labelnote]]
* "This artifact was passed down to me from my uncle." [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the season 2 pilot, Tenzin shows Korra a map of the Air Temples - complete with a smiling [[SuperDeformed chibi]] Tenzin - and Korra's reaction is one of bemusement. It did not take long for gifs to appear, substituting the map for one of Sokka's notoriously bad drawings, or screencaps of him looking extremely silly, or anything else that might fit with Korra's reaction.[[/labelnote]]
* [insert situation]
--> '''Mako''': Korra...[[spoiler: I broke up with you.]].[[note]]Mako waiting until the last second to tell Korra he broke up with her after her memories were erased.[[/note]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdAVRglNhxI Republic Rim]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The final battle between Korra and Unalaq/Vaatu is similar to the battles in Film/{{Pacific Rim}}[[/labelnote]]
* Fanart of [[MoeAnthropomorphism human!]]Raava - typically a pale, [[TheHighQueen regal]] woman wearing a kimono and hair ornaments, with [[WhiteHairedPrettyGirl white hair]] and blue facial markings - is practically as popular as fanart of her true form.
** Waava is my new OTP![[labelnote:Explanation]]The Wan/Raava pairing - humanized or not - has received considerable popularity.[[/labelnote]]
* Putting a blush on Unalaq face especially [[http://immabenben.tumblr.com/post/67429006056 when he looks at Vaatu.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] The Unavaatu pairing becomes popular as the finale pretty much shows Unalaq's strong desire to be one with Vaatu. This leads to jokes like "I wish my boyfriend looks at me like Unalaq looks at Vaatu."[[/labelnote]]
* "Jinora Christ" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Jinora descending from the heavens in golden light to bring Raava back.[[/labelnote]]
* You're an Airbender, and you're an Airbender, EVERYBODY'S AN AIRBENDER!! [[labelnote:Explanation]] A parody of [[TheOprahWinfreyShow Oprah Winfrey]] that comes from the reaction of people randomly becoming airbenders in season three.[[/labelnote]]
* Zaheer puns have begun. [[labelnote:Explanation]][[http://loansharkrawrrawr.tumblr.com/post/90224211170/zaheer-zanotheer-zaouttaheer Set of three screencaps from Zaheer's jailbreak (one with him glowering out of his cell, one of the cell now containing several stunned White Lotus sentries, and one of Zaheer leaping off the cliff) in "A Breath Of Fresh Air," with the comments "Zaheer, ZaNOTheer, ZaOUTTAheer."]][[/labelnote]]
** To a lesser degree, P'Li puns. [[labelnote:Explanation]][[http://avatar-dacia.tumblr.com/post/96896916824/i-kind-of-made-a-half-assed-gif-because-the-pun Gif of P'Li sniping at squad cars in "Old Wounds," with the appropriately anti-authoritarian caption "Fuck the P'Lice!"]][[/labelnote]]
* Hipster Zaheer. [[note]]When infiltrating the air temple Zaheer claims to be from a village far North that "you've probably never heard of." Cue everybody making jokes about Zaheer being a hipster.[[/note]]
* Zaheer is a [[{{Pun}} weeablew]]. [[note]] Likely started with [[http://disgruntledturtle.tumblr.com/post/92030135776/ this Tumblr post]] and is a reference to his Air Nomad ForeignCultureFetish and Guru Laghima fanboyism.[[/note]]
* Toph ReallyGetsAround. [[labelnote:Spoilers]] Toph is revealed to have two daughters with by two different fathers, both unknown even by Lin and Su, so the fandom has latched onto this and made Toph a nymphomaniac, who doesn't [[AnythingThatMoves care who her partner is]], though it does have its [[{{Slutshaming}} dark side.]][[/labelnote]]
* R.I.P. Bosco. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Fans were ''horrified'' to learn of the rumor that the Earth Queen had ''eaten'' her father's pet bear.[[/labelnote]]
* Opal is evil. [[labelnote:Explanation]] In the episode ''The Terror Within'', Opal [[http://31.media.tumblr.com/a84a34774558d40dc3015d8943251459/tumblr_n94o30RSb31rogcuio2_r1_500.gif makes a bizarrely ominous facial expression]], when feeding Bolin no less. This has led to several edits reminiscent of the [[Disney/{{Frozen}} "If only there was someone out there who loved you"]] and [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier "Hail HYDRA!"]] memes.[[/labelnote]]
* Episode ten/Zaheer is breathtaking! [[labelnote: Explanation]] Zaheer asphyxiating the Earth Queen with the air from her own lungs. [[/labelnote]]
** Also gifs of that event accompanied by a litany of songs about taking breath away, e.g. "No Air" by Jordan Sparks, "Take My Breath Away" by Berlin, and [[WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers "T is for the way you take my breath away".]]
* Never trust episode ten. [[labelnote: Explanation]] Episode 10 of Avatar and all three seasons of Korra always contains something shocking. [[/labelnote]]
* Zaheer is [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises Bane]]. [[labelnote: Explanation]] Zaheer giving control of Ba Sing Se to its citizens after killing the Earth Queen led to inevitable comparisons to Bane's liberation of Gotham in the film. [[/labelnote]]
* "As long as I'm breathing, it's not over." [[labelnote: Explanation]] Tenzin refuses to give up Korra to the Red Lotus. As the Red Lotus starts beating on a battered and bruised Tenzin, [[BolivianArmyEnding the camera slowly pans to the wall...]] [[/labelnote]]
* "Guru Laghima. An ''airbender''." [[labelnote: Explanation]] In "The Stakeout", Zaheer tells Korra "Do you know who once said, 'New growth cannot exist without first the destruction of the old'? Guru Laghima, an ''airbender''." Since then people have begun attributing [[IceCreamKoan nonsensical phrases]] to "Guru Laghima, an ''airbender''." [[/labelnote]]
* [[spoiler: P'Li's]] death was [[YourHeadAsplode mind-blowing]] [[labelnote: Book 3 finale spoilers]] P'Li dies when Suyin metalbends her armor around P'Li's head right as she's about to fire off a combustion blast, causing it to backfire and incinerate her; fans have taken to making jokes abut it using variations of the phrase "mind-blowing." [[/labelnote]]
** And to a lesser extent, jokes have been made about [[spoiler: Ming-Hua's]] death being "shocking" [[labelnote: Explanation, Book 3 finale spoilers]] Mako hit her with a blast of lightning and electrocuted her to death.[[/labelnote]]
** And to an even lesser extent, crushing/buried or "earth-shattering" puns about [[spoiler: Ghazan's]] death [[labelnote: Explanation, book 3 finale spoilers]] He decided to bury himself alive in a cave rather than go back to prison. [[/labelnote]]
** And we are not "yanking your chain" about [[spoiler:Zaheer's]] [[SoleSurvivor ultimate defeat]]. [[labelnote: Explanation, book 3 finale spoilers]]He tries to escape, but is dragged back down by Korra entangling his leg with one of her broken chains.[[/labelnote]]
* It's Aang! [[labelnote: Book 3 finale spoilers]] Jinora finally gets her airbending tattoos. Fans have noted her similarities in design to Aang before, but with her head shaved, the only difference between her and her grandfather are their different colored eyes and different shaped ears. [[/labelnote]]
* All my friends are dead. [[labelnote: Book 3 finale spoilers]] Zaheer's face is often photoshopped on the dinosaur on the cover of the book because P'li, Ming-Hua, and Ghazan are all dead by the end of the finale. [[/labelnote]]
* Put a sock in it! [[labelnote: Book 3 finale spoilers]] When Zaheer has lost and is ranting about the Red Lotus will prevail, Bolin shuts him up by gagging him with a literal sock. Naturally, he [[DontExplainTheJoke points it out]]. [[/labelnote]]
* [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic You know, for kids!]] [[labelnote:Explanation, spoilers]]Jokes about how un-kids'-show-like LOK is. Started with [[spoiler:Amon and Tarrlok's murder-suicide]], but it really took off in Book 3 with how [[spoiler:the Earth Queen and P'li die.]][[/labelnote]]
* ''SOON.'' [[labelnote: Explanation]] When Nick released the title for book 4, Bryan's only comment (on tumblr) was "''SOON.''" Turns out "soon" meant "next month". [[/labelnote]]
** ''OCTOBER 3!'' [[labelnote: Explanation]] When the release date was announced - with only three weeks left to go - the fandom was launched into an emotional whirlwind of anticipation and dread. [[/labelnote]]
* Prince Wuzko [[labelnote: Explanation]] A clip from the first episode of book 4 shows Prince Wu, the soon to be king of the earth kingdom. He hits on Asami and is incredibly full of himself -- and remarkably like [[Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove Kuzco.]][[/labelnote]]
** Let Kuvira take over! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Between badass-looking Kuvira and her well-organized army and the obviously incompetent Wu, quite a few fans are saying (jokingly or not) that it would be preferable to have the former on the throne. It's even an in-universe sentiment.[[/labelnote]]
* Kai's voice! [[labelnote: Explanation]] With the new book 4 clip released featuring Kai and Opal, the fandom has been quick to note that puberty was very, VERY kind to Kai - and his voice.[[/labelnote]]
* Gifs of Kuvira's high speed metalbending have become popular, [[http://gifsound.com/?gif=i.imgur.com/tOhSfXS.gif&v=8NjbGr2nk2c&s=60 especially]] [[http://gifsound.com/?gif=i.imgur.com/tOhSfXS.gif&v=kxopViU98Xo when]] [[http://gifsound.com/?gif=i.imgur.com/tOhSfXS.gif&v=JGw8DWctAts paired]] [[http://gifsound.com/?gif=i.imgur.com/tOhSfXS.gif&v=Ym0hZG-zNOk&s=87 with]] [[http://gifsound.com/?gif=i.imgur.com/tOhSfXS.gif&v=2HQaBWziYvY&s=30 music]].
* The Great Divider... of legs. [[labelnote: Explanation]] It took only a single episode for Kuvira to be cemented as a [[MemeticSexGod Memetic Sex Goddess]].[[/labelnote]]
* Lin is Momboss. [[labelnote:Explanation]] "Momboss" is a FanNickname, referring to her increasingly maternal relationship with Mako. This was cemented by the Book 4 premiere, where the normally gruff, unflappable Lin becomes apologetic when telling Mako he'll be accompanying Prince Wu, even letting Mako ''grab and shake her'' without comment.[[/labelnote]]
* "That can't be it! Where's the rest of it?" [[labelnote: Explanation]] Zuko's reaction to to reading the abrupt end of Sozin's story is ''the'' standard fandom reaction to the end of an episode.[[/labelnote]]
* "I can't believe it. Hama?" [[labelnote: Explanation]] [[http://33.media.tumblr.com/94c26335f5e9842bbd3b8bf55db9289e/tumblr_nd8k2weAFr1u0t409o1_1280.jpg Toph's new appearance]] quickly resulted in comparisons to a first series villain. [[/labelnote]]
* [[https://38.media.tumblr.com/536fbd3e5391215126b5fcd4d5b030b5/tumblr_ndll4mamDu1rkv6jko1_1280.png The face Mako]] made when Bolin said Kuvira was a lot like Korra became memetic practically the moment it was first seen.
** Similarly, Bataar Jr.'s look of [[http://jinoras-light.tumblr.com/post/102028267653/daddymako-they-were-seriously-asking-for-this bug-eyed shock]] after [[spoiler:Varrick blows up his trainboard lab with a spirit energy bomb]] became an instant hit after "The Battle of Zaofu". Editing him into various shocking scenes is particularly popular.
** And Lin's look of [[http://38.media.tumblr.com/c7dbaf51ec4267738e6e1ffe24a53332/tumblr_ng3qvacC7I1ro0n55o1_1280.gif rage]] when Bolin asks Toph who Lin's father is.
* [[http://imgur.com/a/epC9G The Earth Empire is America]]! [[labelnote:Explanation]]When arguing with Mako, Bolin states that they (the Earth Empire) bring FREEDOM wherever they go.[[/labelnote]]
%% * The brooch is a lie!
* Frog-squirrels. [[labelnote: Explanation]] The frog-squirrel that lands on Korra's shoulder while she's training/being pushed around in the swamp has gained many followers. [[/labelnote]]
* Best Avatar Dad Unalaq. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Considering the terrible track record WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender and WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra have with attentive parents, it became a thing that Unalaq was the best father in the Avatar universe, as (as far as we know) he never did anything to his children that some of the other Avatar parents have, such as send them to live in a military compound for 15 years (Korra) or cover up their crimes (Suyin)[[/labelnote]]
* Bad Pick Up Line Meelo. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the style of Bad Joke Amon, combining images of Meelo flirting with Tuyen with cheesy pick up lines.[[/labelnote]]
* Toph summarizes Avatar. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Toph gave some rather curt summaries of Aang learning Earthbending and Sozin's comet.[[/labelnote]]
* NOT THE THING! [[labelnote: Explanation]] When Zhu Li calls Varrick out for never appreciating her help, she says, "Guards, [[BorrowedCatchphrase do the thing."]] -- to much fanfare from the fanbase. [[/labelnote]]
* "[[WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} What are you doing in my swamp!?]]" [[labelnote: Explanation]]With Toph living in the swamp and Kuvira's plans to tear it down for spirit vine, a lot of Shrek jokes ensued[[/labelnote]]
** Avatar is {{Film/Avatar}} now. [[labelnote: Explanation]] With a circle of military aircraft preparing to take down an enormous, spiritually significant and highly connected tree, parallels to James Cameron's film were easily made.[[/labelnote]]
* The [[http://media.tumblr.com/7976ebe69f461d5aba3ff5b1942c7178/tumblr_inline_nf1r2ruDLt1qd7jvp.png bedroom eyes]] [[labelnote: Explanation]] Korra makes this face when Mako mentions the arguments that he and Korra have had in the past. [[/labelnote]]
* Combined with "Bad Joke Amon" from the first season, [[http://imgur.com/gallery/CT5ZlZv image macros of the villains talking]] in "Remembrances" popped up within hours of the episode coming out.
** [[Film/MeanGirls "You can't sit with us."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Zaheer, Vaatu and Amon excluding Unalaq from their circle drew instant comparisons to a certain girl clique.[[/labelnote]]
* Remember when Bolin [did X] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Photoshopping Bolin's face over Korra's in any given situation and crediting him, based on Varrick's mover pitch in the last third of ''Rememberences''.[[/labelnote]]
* Hairbending [[labelnote: Explanation]] Joining Asami...Korra's short hair in Book 4: Episode 9 looks AWESOME blowing in the wind. [[/labelnote]]
* "We're going in blind!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]When "Beyond The Wilds" ended, fans realized that every scene from the Book Four trailer had been shown in the series, leaving them with no clue as to what the last four episodes would contain. They [[MassOhCrap reacted appropriately]].[[/labelnote]]
* "Hey chief." [[labelnote: Explanation]] Lin and Toph's long-awaited reunion. [[/labelnote]]
* Where the hell is Kai? [[labelnote: Explanation]] As Book 4 winds to a close, the fandom is going crazy waiting for Kai to show up again - whose last appearance was in episode ONE. [[/labelnote]]
* Baatar Sr. is a huge dork. [[labelnote: Explanation]] In "Operation Beifong," we get to witness the engineer and architect of Zaofu get thrown from a wooden cage and cartwheel through the air, - unlike the rest of his family - [[http://31.media.tumblr.com/29a5f201384899de31332f536fb643f0/tumblr_ng4ts0emuv1toglhwo7_250.gif screaming the whole way.]] [[/labelnote]]
* "You give metalbenders a bad name!" [[labelnote: Explanation]] Said to Kuvira by Toph when she saves her family. Often mixed with Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name." [[/labelnote]]
* RIP Hot United Forces Guy. [[labelnote: Explanation]] [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/82e506d33a8374693780d2576995c088/tumblr_ngh5zwFsNy1swextfo1_500.png This guy]] is one of the United Forces guards who sees Kuvira's giant mecha coming for Republic City. Unfortunately, he is killed when Kuvira fires her spirit at the watchtower. (The fandom has noted that he is also very, VERY attractive.) [[/labelnote]]
* Varrick sinks his own ships. [[labelnote: Explanation]] Alluding to when Varrick attacked his own ships in an attempt to instigate a war and take over Future Industries in Book 2, Varrick sinks an entirely different kind of ship in Book 4 -- his relationship with Zhu Li. Twice they have had a romantic moment, twice Zhu Li has basically shoved a neon sign in his face telling him how she feels... and twice Varrick seems to follow through but diverts it at the last minute.[[/labelnote]]
* After [[spoiler:Korra and Asami's RelationshipUpgrade]] in the GrandFinale, many, many jokes were made about [[spoiler:Mako being such an awful boyfriend that both of his exes went lesbian afterwards]].
** Related: Makorra is the new Zutara. [[labelnote: Explanation]]When the series began, Zutara shippers proudly jumped board to Makorra, claiming that it would be the AuthorsSavingThrow to make up for Zutara not happening. [[HilariousInHindsight The end result was hilarious indeed.]][[/labelnote]]
** IT'S CANON vs. JUST FRIENDS. [[labelnote: Explanation]]Due to the ambiguity of Korrasami in the final, most Ship Combat dissolves into this.[[/labelnote]]
** IT'S CANON probably counts on its own too. [[labelnote: Explanation]]Shipping wars aside, the fact that a highly popular, "non-standard" ship received what is hard not to read as confirmation, many jokes have been made about the fandom's reaction. Example [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUkDC9Xf1Hw here]].[[/labelnote]]
** The LEZZING OF KORRA! [[labelnote: Explanation]]Like it or not, [[JustForPun puns]] had to show up at some point.[[/labelnote]]
** AND YOU GOTTA DEAL WITH IT. [[labelnote: Explanation]] After the release of an official statement from the creators on Tumblr that the Korrasami ship was both intended and canon, there can be no denying it. Ironic that the very first meme of the series becomes its last.[[/labelnote]]
** Not to mention all of the sudden schadenfreude had at Mako's expense, [[spoiler:for two of his ex-girlfriends suddenly hooking up]].
** And then there's Korra's apparent new ability to [[spoiler:bend sexual preference]] that's been making the rounds.
** Many fan edits show other pairings [[spoiler:walking into the spirit portal]].
** Calling the RelationshipUpgrade "The Thing," complete with capitals, short for "the thing that broke the Internet."
* [[http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=korrasami Korrasami is now a verb]].
* "Feudal lord and handmaiden". [[labelnote: Explanation]]Someone made a post [[http://memedocumentation.tumblr.com/post/113661472715/pokemoneggs-this-deserved-its-own-post claiming Korrasami was "heteronormative" due to one being feminine and the other more butch, and that their ship of Makorra defied gender roles.]] After the initial disgust and shock wore off, fans embraced this as a new meme.[[/labelnote]]
* "She's ''SO'' pretty. She's ''so'' pretty and cool." [[labelnote:Explanation]]The opinion about Asami that Janet Varney expressed on the commentary track. Used in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mg1RnAGncBQ&t=16s this]] GagDub.[[/labelnote]]
