For theories about other subjects, see The Legend Of Korra Wild Mass Guessing Index. The Legend of Korra feared, and that was have regular humans be lower class citizens under the Demigod's rule. With The Golden Spider/Chakratarvin irritating and making the avatar spirit angry and full of rage at the demigods for ruining the balance it tried to keep together so much, the spirit twisted into Gohma Vlitra, and thus caused the first war of creation between the gohma and the Demi-gods. So now, instead of keeping the world in balance, the former Avatar now turned into Gohma waged war for thousands, if not millions of years, thus the Avatar never being able to reincarnate ever again. It was now up to the demi-gods to take back their world from the Gohma.
Korra takes place in the new Pokémon games.A lot of nature vs. technology stuff in both this show and Pokémon Black and White.
The obligatory Magic: The Gathering WMG
Obligatory Haruhi Suzumiya WMGHaruhi saw Avatar: The Last Airbender , and thought it would be pretty snazzy to be an avatar, and her unconsciously omnipotent reality-warping head brainfarted the Korraverse into in existence, where:
Amon is Rodger Smith, and is related to Mako, Bolin, and Lightning Bolt Zolt in some way.Amon is voiced by Steve Blum and has blueprints for a Giant Mecha. Also, Rodger Smith is obviously Batman/Bruce Wayne, just like Amon and Mako are. Finally, Mako and Zolt have a very similar appearance to Rodger. Coincidence? ...Most likely.
Amon is the other Roger Smith, because why not?Roger DOES like wearing disguises and being a sociopath.
Hiroshi Sato is an ancestor of Hoshi Sato from Star Trek: Enterprise.They have similar names.
It isn't a firebender going around and killing everyone's parents......it's actually a non-bender with a flame-thrower.
Amon is Zero.When Amon takes away a bender's bending he's actually placing a Geass on them.
Amon is secretly setting up for the Holy Grail War!And he's going to summon Sokka as Saber!!
The three Councilmembers apart from Tarrlok and Tenzin are hopelessly senile.They're lucky if they can remember the topic at hand by the time it's time for a vote. Tarrlok just moves their hands up with some Bloodbending at the right moment, and they just assume that they meant to do that.
Tarrlok is a TimeLord.Because every WMG page needs this.
Asami is a Time Lord. She used to be Azula.Ya know, because yeah. She probably forgot how to firebend.
The book Jinora read about a heroine riding a dragon into battle and burning down a country was A Dream of Spring.
In the end...Mako and Asami will break up somewhere in season two and the rest of the time he and Korra will be Twice Shy. Mako and Korra will finally confess their love and get together a few episodes before the final battle and they will share a night of passion before the battle. In said battle, Mako will be killed in saving Bolin or someone and Korra tries her best to save him but fails, leaving her heartbroken. After Mako's funeral, Bolin and Asami get together and Korra is found to be pregnant with Mako's child. A time skip of about seven or eight years will reveal that RC has achieved the dream Aang had for it. It is a peaceful place and the streets are safe and gang-free. Amon, Tarrlok, the Equalists and that annoying protester are all gone, benders and non-benders are friends again and Bolin and Asami have married and had kids. Korra, who is still living at Air Temple Island with Tenzin and his family, never married, remaining faithful to Mako even after his death. She has not only lived up to Aang's legacy as the Avatar, but she also the proud mother of opposite-gender-twins who look and act just like their respective parents (A feisty waterbending daughter who looks like Korra and a calm firebending son who looks like Mako) and spend the better part of their time bickering. The boy cherishes his red scarf just as his father did. This is only here because it is unlikely to happen on the show seeing how young Korra still is. If anyone would like to make this into a fic, they have my permission. Wham Episode after Wham Episode, the center protagonist is a female with the potential to change things, and the main villain focus is someone with a mostly white and red face that is frozen. All it needs is for Asami to make a contract with him and have the city wiped out.
Amon is Gommu.noteWe do not know much about Gommu, and it would be a shocking plot twist.
Amon is a cabbage.I don't mean that he's the Cabbage Man, but that he's literally a crop of cabbage seeking to avenge its fallen kin. Hell, it even adds motivation for why Cabbage Corps was framed; it was angry that the Cabbage Man decided to abandon it to go into industry, so it takes revenge on his descendents.
There is a connection between Airbending and Gurren Lagann.I'm sorry, but the fact Tenzin stresses SPIRAL movements as key to Airbending is too good to pass up. For those who don't know, Gurren Lagann is a Mecha anime where mechas are powered by being Hot-Blooded and Crazy Awesome. Note the contrast with Airbending in general.
Amon and Tarlockwill be reborn as Korra's children. They will finally find the happiness and peace both so longed for.
The Sequel Series to Korra will be set in the equivalent of the modern day.The show will then proceed to go meta by having people argue about Shipping on the internet. Or would it be avatarnet?
Everything Really is Hasook's faultYou know all those jokes that Hasook is the source of all problems in Korra? There's a truth to those. He is. He never meant for things to get so out of hand, but it was born out of anger. Here's what happened: Hasook was pissed off at Mako for insulting him all the time. Every time he messed up he became the worst person in the world. Mako never treated Bolin like that because they were brothers. Mako protected Bolin and never blamed him. Everything was Hasook's fault. He felt like a third wheel with Mako and Bolin being so close and him just being "the Waterbender." Sure, Hasook isn't the best Waterbender in the world, but he'd appreciate just a little respect from Mako. This hit its breaking point when we last see him in "A Leaf In The Wind." Pissed off, Hasook left and never planned to come back. He left looking for a way to get revenge. Koh the Face Stealer, being the jerk he is, saw this and offered him power. Power to rewrite reality to his liking. Hasook, being very emotional at the time, took him up on the offer. He attained this power right around the time of "The Revelation", and Hasook planned to make them suffer. His first target was Bolin. Mr. I Can Do No Wrong. He made Mako start being rude to him. Rude in a way that he never was before. Mako became snappy and dismissive of Bolin. He made sure Bolin was kidnapped. Seeing him freak out in front of Amon made Hasook happy. He then decided to make Mako a huge jerk by having him suddenly develop feelings for the girl Bolin liked while still dating Asami. Mako and Korra kissed and made Bolin suffer more than Hasook had ever seen. This was when he started ignoring Bolin. Bolin became merely window dressing at this point. Now Hasook toyed with Mako's feelings. He made his feelings for Korra drive his actions. He made him rude to Korra, giving her an ultimatum and lacking any reasoning for his arguments. He used Hiroshi Sato being an Equalist to his advantage. He made Hiroshi reveal himself to everyone. He made sure Mako was there and that his girlfriend lost everything. He didn't really have anything against Asami, so he didn't really bother with her. She ended up saving everyone. Everyone except the police. Hasook didn't mind. He didn't want anyone to really get debended. After he was satisfied he would just make everything better. After that Hasook got everyone arrested and then made Tarrlok reveal his true nature. But then Korra got kidnapped. Hasook tried to stop this, but realized that things were starting to get a little difficult to control. He didn't want anything truly bad to happen to Korra, so he had Korra suddenly discover Yakone's story, and made sure people discovered Tarrlok's lies and then had Amon pop up to debend Tarrlok. It was justice, right? During this time, he tried to make it easier for the Krew to find Korra, but something strange happened. Everything heaped onto Mako. Mako became the only one to show any real emotion in the situation. Hasook found that he couldn't stop it. His control over his powers were slipping. They found Korra, and Mako disregarded everything for her. Hasook started to freak out. He wanted to stop Mako but he couldn't. It had gone too far. Mako became of force all his own. Hasook had to watch Asami be hurt by Mako denying all of the things that he caused. Mako was obsessed with Korra. When Amon took over Republic City, Hasook made sure that General Iroh got the message. When the fleet was attacked, Hasook ensured General Iroh's survival, and at a loss of what to do, sat back and watched Mako degrade. Hasook tried to have Mako apologize to Asami, but all he could do was make Mako give an ambiguous statement. When Korra and Mako found Tarrlok, Hasook tried to explain Amon, but he couldn't think of anything. He made up some story about Amon being Yakone's son. He tried to explain things, but all he could think of was how bad it would be if Amon was a Bloodbender. Then Amon was a Bloodbender. Hasook was horrified. Being a Waterbender, Hasook feared Bloodbending more than any other kind of bending. When Amon had debended Korra and was about to debend Mako, Hasook gave Mako a boost so that he could break the rules on Lightning Bending and hit Amon. But Amon wasn't so easy to stop. Hasook had to pull out all the stops to get Korra to Airbend, and made Amon reveal himself as a Waterbender. Amon escaped and went to Tarrlok. Hasook took his chance to get them both out at sea and then made Tarrlok kill both himself and Amon. Seeing how much he hurt Korra, Hasook tried to help by unlocking her spiritual side and giving her her bending back as well as giving everyone else their bending back. But Mako came out and kissed Korra. Hasook was ashamed. He made so many people suffer just to get revenge. He realized that Bolin really didn't deserve what he got. He dragged Asami through the dirt just to get to Mako, and Mako became unstoppable. He couldn't make everything better. He had lost total control of his powers. It took everything to give Korra Energybending. Now Hasook is stuck in the Spirit World, unable to leave. Koh is amused, and everything is so much worse than he ever anticipated.
Lin's father is really AzulaAnd she's an hermaphrodite. Doubles as explanation for why Azula stated her mother thought of her as a monster: Azula accidentally overheard her complaining how awkward it was...
Season two will see the emergence of alchemy, which may or may not eventually lead to the world of Fullmetal AlchemistIt gives bending a more scientific but still fantastical counterpart fit the modern vs traditional theme and would give the now fully realized Korra something to master. And if it does lead to Fullmetal Alchemist, Korra's teacher could PASS HIS BEAUTIFUL ARTISTIC ALCHEMY DOWN HIS LINE FOR GENERATIONS!
Tarlok smells like a lady because of bloodbendingHe bends his own body to alter his ferramones to smell pretty.
In his youth, Noatak was known to tell inexplicably horrible jokes.And during his travels, he once got kicked out of a town because of it.
Tarrlok can mimic the sounds of various animals almost perfectly.Because Dee Bradley Baker.
The Big Bad of Season 2 is a fan of Amon who's angry that Amon's just an Arc Villain rather than an overall Big Bad.Credit to Archereon for the idea [lol]
Jinora and Wan Shi Tong will create the avatar equivalent to the internet.Jinora will learn about spirit library from reading her's grandfather's journals. When old enough she'll travel to desert and “somehow” unearth the library. Wan Shi Tong will try to turn her away. After all the humans just going to abuse his knowledge again! She'll manage to convince him to stay and offer new medias to store knowledge on records and record players, silent films, etc The owl spirit will be impressed by her devotion to knowledge, and as the years pass Jinora will drop by the library during her travels and catch up with him. The knowledge spirit and the airbender would bond over their love of learning,and Jinora would want others to have access to the library. Saddened by the fact he'll outlive mortal friend. He'll see that her wish comes true in a way that can still protect the library and share it at the same. So together they create a global network where people share and save information and communicate with each other. Noatak and Tarrlok. Noatak = NO Avatar Korra, Tarrlok = The Avatar - Rage!! Legend of Korra?!
Possible sequels, spinoffs, and extended universe that no one would expect from nickelodeon.Happy Avatar Days, That 70s Avatar, Avatar 90210, Avatar Jersery Shore, Avatar Glee...continue if you have more ideas.
Pointless and possibly disturbing reincarnation theory.The souls of Mai, Ty Lee, and some air nomads Aang knew got wanted to be together in their next life. Some spirits reincarnated theme as Jinora, Ikki, Meelo, and Rohan. Then their souls wanted to live on another world...our world. These are there reincarnations:
The series will end when Korra and her Krew are at the North Pole.One of the Krew, probably Korra, will use Waterbending to shatter an iceberg (for the sake of Book Ends). Inside the iceberg is Ursa. Just because.
prosthetic limbs in Avatarverse.It's hard to believe that after the Hundred Year war in the previous series that even primitive prosthetics have not been developed. Coupled with the ability of metal, earth, and water benders it would be possible to create advanced bending powered prosthesises for the severely injured and powerful benders.
The Equalists are an alternate version of COBRA.Because defacing the local equivalent to the Statue of Liberty by covering it with your leader's face is such a COBRA move.
The person causing all the murders and death is not a Firebender.Really its one person named Amadeus Firebender and it just so happens they bend water
Varrick will use his "Mover" technology to create this.Sozin's Comet: The Rise of Wang Fire.◊ At the very least, something like it will appear as a poster in the background.
The dark spirits are actually HeartlessAnd Unalaq is a keyless keyblade master.
Eska and Boling WILL get married.After the end of the series, after Eska spent a decade or two playing as the waterbender on the Fire Ferrets. In that time, she gets to be slightly less creepy. Except in bed. Badass Beard. What's not to like?
Senna is a surprisingly good driver.Because they can't have used that name for nothing.
Varrick has a crazy water bending ex.When Bolin asked if the boat was fast enough to escape his crazy waterbending ex. Varrick's response? "Why do you think I built this thing?" Of course, he could be implying it was made for quick escapes.
Asami is shipping Varrick/Zhu Li and/or has a dirtier mind than we expected.Note her subtle tone of reading something more into it when asking if Varrick's assistant is also in the bear with him.
Advice!Varrick will be a thing.He spends a whole episode giving relationship/political situation advice from inside a bear suit. How does that not sound like a meme?
There will be a Hays Code or something like it in the future.The Nuktuk films already get quite a bit of crap past the radar, and who's to say there aren't some more risqué movers out there already? Well, someone's going to clutch their pearls and demand a very strict policy to censor them... Either Korra or the next Avatar will take note of the Hays Code, and deliver some epic, well-deserved jabs at Moral Guardians and Nickelodeon.
Eska and Desna are Ravers.Seriously, they're apparently devoid of empathy, lack much in the way of distinct personalities (so far) and the creepily synchronized way they act when they're together bears a strange resemblance to how the Ravers Herem and Jehannum act when they're on-page together in The Power that Preserves. And Unalaq having to specify that he wants Korra, his niece and the person he needs for his plan to succeed, alive is exactly the kind of order you'd need to give a Raver. E and D's emotional detachment is a side-effect of the Ravers trying to conceal their natural Ax-Crazy behind a veneer of humanity, but since they don't really get how and why people do things, they can't get it quite right. Of course, the question is whether Unalaq knows that his kids are possessed by ancient spirits of pure evil, and what exactly Lord Foul is getting out of having two of his lieutenants doing this gig. Unless Foul and Vaatu are the same being, or different manifestations of the same power, and Unalaq seems to be playing right into Vaatu's hands... Of course, that begs the question of where the third Raver is. Unalaq himself? Varrick? Zhu Li?
The Avatarverse is the same universe that JoJo's Bizarre Adventure takes place in.A long time ago, before humans had permanently inherited bending from the Lion Turtles, a race of benders known as Pillar Men, who had shared a common ancestor with the Lion Turtles, created several masks of stone carved from the shell of one. These masks, when soaked in blood, would give their wearers an alternate form of waterbending. This technique, though limited in its uses, was immensely powerful, allowing its user to weaponize their own bodily fluids, freeze the water vapor around them, and even live thousands of years longer than a normal human. But the technique was also very dangerous, as it was so potent that the user required the blood of others for sustenance, and they shared the Pillar Men's weakness to sunlight, but instead of turning them to stone, exposure to the sun would kill them. This specific group of waterbenders would later become known as vampires. When Avatar Wan sealed off the gate to the spirit world, the Pillar Men, who had a strong connection to the spirits, turned to stone indefinitely. Thousands of years later, a few decades after the end of the Hundred Year War, the mask found its way into a part of the world that remained separate from the four nations and was unaffected by the war; a little continent called Europe, which consisted almost entirely of non-benders. An English man named Dio Brando donned the mask and became a vampire with the intention of taking over the world, but was quickly defeated by his stepbrother, Jonathan Joestar, who harnessed the power of the sun using an ancient form of firebending known as the Ripple. Some time after the next Harmonic Convergence, the last four remaining Pillar Men had awakened from their ten-thousand-year sleep; Santana the Waterbender, Esidisi the Firebender, Wham the Airbender, and Kars the Earthbender. They were soon defeated by Jonathan Joestar's grandson, Joseph Joestar. Over the next several decades, bending began to disappear, and spirits found their way back into the human world, becoming one with the humans. They had learned to join with humans without harming them, and these new spirits became known as Stands. During this time, the great-granddaughter of Avatar Aang, who lived in a district of Republic City known as Morioh, married into the Kishibe family and had a son, who she named after her father. Rohan Kishibe would grow up to be a famous manga artist. Yes, this whole elaborate theory was a setup for a name similarity joke.
The Friday Night Death Slot will unfortunately lead to the show being cancelled.Unfortunately, shows screwed over this badly tend not to do so well, which may or may not lead to the inevitable.
Vaatu and Raava were husband and wife.Don't tell me no one saw it.
Future hurricanes and/or tornadoes in the Avatar world will be rated on the Tenzin scale.From zero to, "You threatened an airbender's daughter, didn't you?"
Add Varrick to that list of possible Time Lords we have going.He's got the eccentricities for it, he's Crazy-Prepared, has a ridiculous amount of post-modern technology at his disposal, and he can practically predict the future. Also, like most Time Lords, he's arrogant, manipulative and self-serving. About the only dissimilarity he has is his spite for non-interference policies (mainly when they get in the way of what he wants).
The Avatar!verse is one of the Nine Realms, and Unalaq was enacting his plot to utilize Harmonic Convergence at the same time Malekith was enacting his.Because the Book 2 finale releasing the same month as Thor: The Dark World is too much of a coincidence to ignore.
Zhu Li is Varrick's bastard daughter.Her mother was an employee of Varrick's and died in childbirth. Foreseeing that having an illegitimate daughter would cause succession issues with any other children he might have down the road but not being completely without a conscience, Varrick ensured that she was brought up by loving foster parents, paid for her education, and ensured that she would have a job where he could keep close watch on her.
Mako is a very successful version of Bud Bundy.Crazy, I know, but David Faustino does both Bud AND Mako, and imagine if Mako is actually one of Bud's alternate egos that were actually successful, and he was kept that way!
The main plot of Book 3 is that some jerk steals the cast's clothes.Korra and company have to go on an epic quest in their underwear to retrieve them. And before you call me crazy, keep in mind that most of the Book 3 screenshots seen so far have the characters undressed. Hence the title. Book 3: Change of clothes.
