[[caption-width-right:294:Here's your [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheLibrary Callback]] with a side order of [[NightmareFuel/TheLegendOfKorra Nightmare fuel]].]]

''Radar/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' got plenty of crap past the radar itself - let us see how its successor holds up.
As with all 'Korra'' pages, '''SPOILERS AHOY!'''
%%NOTE: This page has had many examples that have misunderstood the Getting Crap Past The Radar trope. Please read the trope's definition carefully to make sure your example actually fits.

[[folder:Book 1: Air]]

[[AC:"The Spirit of Competition"]]
* Tahno lacks subtlety in this department:
-->'''Tahno:''' (in an extremely suggestive voice) Y'know, if you'd like to learn how a [[DoubleEntendre real pro bends]]... I could give you some ''private lessons''.
* Korra isn't too heavy on the subtlety herself:
-->'''Korra:''' Yeah, but when you're with her you're thinking about me, aren't you?
* After Bolin catches Mako and Korra kissing, Mako finds him drunk at a bar. [[DrunkOnMilk On noodles, not actual liquor]], but the viewer can put two and two together here.
** The next day he acts hung over, and "loses his noodles."
* When Korra is (noted in universe) at the absolute depths of despair, she goes to the top of a cliff. [[InterruptedSuicide Why there specifically?]]

[[folder:Book 2: Spirits]]

[[AC:"Rebel Spirit"]]
* Ginger's demonstration of what the new invention of movies (or movers, as Varrick calls them) can do. We get the distinct impression that Varrick is looking to go into stag films.
** In real life, when "moving pictures" were first getting popular, they were often used as ways for people to view "mature" material. TheRuleOfFirstAdopters, and all that.

[[AC:"Civil Wars"]]
* That betrothal necklace Eska puts on Bolin? ''[[CrossesTheLineTwice It's a BDSM collar with a skull on it]].''

* Lin's "What the flameo?" is GoshDangItToHeck like Aang's "Monkey feathers!" line in [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender the original series]].
** Also a Shout Out to Aang's use of it when they first visit the Fire Nation in season three.

[[AC:"The Sting"]]
* Bolin shouting "My instrument!" after Mako heats up the hot tub water to the max.
** Doubles as a Shout out to Toph's "delicate instrument" line in the original series.
* Ping questioning Mako on dating Korra. His tone of voice and Mako's reluctance to speak on the matter make it sound a lot like he's asking him how the sex is.
--> '''Ping:''' Come on, if I was dating the Avatar, I'd be telling ''everyone'' about it!

[[AC:"A New Spiritual Age"]]
* As one can see from the page picture, it's shocking on how they got away with showing a genuine human corpse in a more realistic stage of decay ([[FridgeLogic likely naturally mummified by the dry desert air]]) instead of using the typical bare-boned skeleton. Good thing the shot itself was quick...

[[AC:"Night of a Thousand Stars"]]
* After seeing President Raiko in Varrick's mover, Mrs. Raiko leans toward her husband and says, in a seductive whisper, "the seal lion seemed a bit far fetched, but the portrayal of this president is right on the money." Raiko responds with a sly smile toward his wife.
* In the "Nuktuk" movers, Naga's character Roh-Tan had a dubbed voice with the VerbalTic of adding "Nuk" to the beginning of or in front of some words, such as "Nuktastrope" instead of "catastrophe". A sneaky UnusualEuphemism version of this trope is arguably used during Pabu's character Juji's death scene in the final mover: Roh-Tan's reaction is "Nuk No!"


[[folder:Book 3: Change]]
[[AC:"A Breath of Fresh Air"]]
* Watch carefully when Korra and Asami's car stops in the middle of the road during Korra's driving lesson. The frustrated driver behind them passes them, and very subtly moves as if to flip them off [[CurseCutShort right before he moves out of the shot]].
* It's only onscreen for a frame or two in both cases, but when Ghazan turns his shuriken on the White Lotus Guards, a liquid a little too dark and red to be lava accompanies each slash.
* Korra talks one of the new airbenders down off of a bridge in a scene that functions identically to her talking down someone who is on the verge of [[DrivenToSuicide attempting suicide.]] It's possible that he got up there by accident, given the context of the scene, but it doesn't really come across that way given the actual dialogue.

* Ming-Hua and Ghazan are rather liberal with their mutual battle tactic of ''throwing their opponents into molten lava''.

[[AC:"The Earth Queen"]]
* P'Li is said to have been in a relationship with Zaheer. When Zuko shows up to check on her, she figures Zaheer must have escaped and, in the most treacly voice she can muster, quips "[[DoubleEntendre I'm feeling warmer already.]]"
* When Korra asks Tenzin about how the Earth Queen's like, his answer seems like a LastSecondWordSwap from the "b" word:
-->'''Tenzin:''' I hear that she can be quite ''[{{beat}}, with a suspicious "a" sound]'' demanding.

[[AC: "The Metal Clan"]]
* Lin and Suyin are half-sisters, which is unusual for a cartoon but not unheard of. Less common is the fact that neither met their fathers, which raises some [[ReallyGetsAround interesting implications]] about Toph's love life.
** [[MemeticMutation So Toph didn't stay with Azula?]]

[[AC: "The Stakeout"]]
* A BadGuyBar is seen in the opening, with one guy [[DrowningTheirSorrows clutching a mug with his head on the table]].

[[AC: "Long Live The Queen"]]
* After seeing Zuko's dragon, the airship captain heads off to [[INeedAFreakingDrink get a drink]].
** In the commentary, one of the co-creators jokes that it was just tea, lampshading the plausible deniability.
* P'li is shown lounging around with what looks like a martini.
* According to the commentary track for Book 3, the Earth Queen's death required a bit of radar-dodging... not because of the graphic on-screen suffocation, but because the censors were unwilling to let anyone say she was actually dead. The solution? Have the radio broadcaster say that her "reign has come to an abrupt and violent end" and show Mako's grandmother saying, "may she rest in peace."

%% Zaheer's murder of the queen has determined to not be an example because it is out in the open, not hidden and snuck in. It is not an example.

[[AC: "Enter The Void/Venom of the Red Lotus"]]
* ''Something'' just too distant to identify can be seen falling back to earth after P'li blows herself up.
* WordOfGod has confirmed that Ming-Hua is dead. What ''hasn't'' been confirmed is whether she died in the cave-in or when Mako electrocuted her. If the normal rules of electricity apply here (HarmlessElectrocution has happened before in the Avatarverse, but it's been averted more often than not), it's almost certainly the latter.
** A storyboard artist claimed that Mako wasn't intended to have killed Ming-Hua, but one of the co-creators heavily implied in a commentary track that we actually saw her die on-screen.
* The "metallic poison" the Red Lotus used on Korra is mercury, and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercury_poisoning mercury poisoning]] is, suffice to say, a ''very nasty'' way to go.

[[folder:Book 4: Balance]]
[[AC:"Korra Alone"]]
* The way the seafood-seller describes Avatar Kyoshi, coupled with the dreamy expression he has on his face, makes one wonder [[AmazonChaser what he means by "getting to know" her.]]

[[AC:"The Coronation"]]

* Wu demonstrates "The Dance of the Badger-Moles", which includes him thrusting his pelvis in a very sexual manner.
* Eska states that ordering a suite with [[ThereIsOnlyOneBed only one bed for her and her brother was]] ''not'' [[IncestSubtext a mistake]]... ({{Beat}}) [[BaitAndSwitch Desna sleeps in the tub]]. [[AsideGlance Eska then briefly turns her head towards the audience]], as if to say "Psst, no he doesn't."

[[AC:"The Calling"]]
* The berry vomit scene. Why does Meelo get a VomitDiscretionShot but his flying lemur Poki not only gets a VomitIndiscretionShot [[CrossesTheLineTwice but then]] [[{{Squick}} eats his]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice own vomit]]? Probably on the technicality that Poki isn't a depiction of a human. Also note that even despite the discretion shot, Meelo still has vomit-stained teeth in the aftermath. It really looks like the storyboarders and animators got away with as much as they could have concerning the grossness of the scene.

[[AC:"Battle of Zaofu"]]
* Varrick's speech sounds suspiciously like he's about to [[DrivenToSuicide blow himself up]] because his girlfriend left him. Only [[LargeHam the way he delivers it]] makes it [[CrowningMomentOfFunny funny]] instead of [[NightmareFuel creepy]].
** He actually [[CrossesTheLineTwice used the phrase "Varrick'd himself" as a euphemism for "killed himself."]] And it's not entirely clear that he didn't actually intend to blow himself up.
* Varrick says Zhu Li's name will be synonymous with betrayal. But the way he says the first syllable in "betrayal" is so loud it seems like he's about to say the B-word.
* Bataar Jr. says Varrick was "crazier than a sewer pipe elephant-rat." which sounds rather similar to the old saying, "crazier than a shithouse rat."
* There are heavy implications that Suyin wanted to [[SlainInTheirSleep assassinate Kuvira in her sleep]], though it's left ambiguous enough to argue she was going to simply kidnap her.
** "Take out" is the standard euphemism for "kill" in the series -- it's as closed to confirmed as they could get.

* Kuvira's "reeducation camps" are sounding more and more like ''[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything concentration camps]]'', especially after TheReveal that she's "purging" ''anyone'' who isn't from the Earth Kingdom and sending them there.
** Both "purging" and "reeducation camps" are things that are commonly associated with communist regimes such as that of the former USSR.

[[AC:"Operation Beifong"]]
* Lin tells Bolin "It's suicide" in reference to [[spoiler:saving Zhu Li basically a SuicideMission]]. It averts NeverSayDie and such language is pretty unknown in a TV-Y7 kid's cartoon.
** This isn't actually the first time such language has been used in the series -- Bolin called Team Avatar's attempt to get to the southern portal during Harmonic Convergence a "suicide mission" back in Book 2.
* Though it's hard to tell because of the [[GoryDiscretionShot distance and clouds of dust]], several Earth Empire soldiers appear to get crushed underneath massive boulders during the fight by the spirit cannon.

[[AC:"Kuvira's Gambit"]]
* Kuvira is all but explicitly stated to have killed the soldiers in a UF outpost when she fired the spirit vine cannon on it.
** It ''is'' explicitly stated that she killed them in the commentary track for the episode. There's also a bit of back-and-forth between the co-creators about how many casualties each thought occurred when she blasted the UF ships in Yue Bay.

%%Do not put the HeroicSacrifice from 'Day of the Colossus', because like Tarlok and Noatak's death, it's directly shown on screen and not slipped by the radar at all.

[[AC: "Day of the Colossus]]
* When Varrick proposes to Zhu Li, he asks her "will you [[CatchPhrase do the thing]] for the rest of our lives?". It kinda sounds like he's referring to sex.

[[AC:"The Last Stand"]]
* It doesn't take a huge mental leap to figure out why we never see Korra dragging Kuvira's copilots from the Colossus. We never see any of the other soldiers walking away from the wreckage, either...
* And in the end, the reveal of the OfficialCouple had to be rendered as this--evidently, the world still isn't ready for same-sex couples in a kid's show. There's no BigDamnKiss or other open acknowledgment, but the moment hits all the same beats as the final moments between Aang and Katara in the original show. To their credit, Nickelodeon expressed wholehearted support of the relationship, but their hands were tied by the network's S&P.

%% The murder-suicide has been determined to not be an example because it is out in the open, not hidden and snuck in. It is not an example.
%% The maybe-suicidal thoughts of Korra is speculation. Barring Word of God, it doesn't really belong here. Fridge Horror or WMG is a better fit.
%% Crashing a biplane into a statue as being reminiscent of 9/11 is REALLY stretching. It properly belongs on WMG, not here.
