* Kuvira conquers the city of Zaofu and earns her MagnificentBastard credentials in record time. ''One episode, no less!''[[noteFor reference, it took Amon 6 episodes.[[/note]] To elaborate, she highly anticipated that Suyin would strike first and try to stop her, so she set up a BatmanGambit to capture her, thus maintaining her VillainWithGoodPublicity status while making Suyin and Zaofu the aggressors and giving her a PretextForWar. That forced Korra to challenge Kuvira to a one-on-one duel for the fate of Zaofu which she loses badly. Kuvira then attempted to murder Korra, an act that would benefit her either way she would either be rid of an enemy or it would force Opal and Jinora to interfere and break the terms of their agreement, thus giving Kuvira the excuse she needs to invade Zaofu. Though Bolin and Varrick manage to escape, Baatar has seen enough of the spirit vine experiment to restart the project with Zhu Li's help. Put simply, [[TheBadGuyWins she won decisively]].]] Amon would be proud.

Added DiffLines:

*** It has to be stated; Kuvira is a woman who effortlessly took out an entire bandit gang on her own, and overpowered the daughter and student of possibly the greatest earthbender in the world, who just so happened to be her teacher...and Korra not only holds her own, but arguably outmatches her.


* Korra energybending the spirit vine cannon blast when it's powered by the entire Republic City Spirit Wilds, ripping a hole in reality and creating a new spirit portal. You read that right. Korra. ''Tanks''. The Spirit Vine Cannon. [[SaveTheVillain While protecting Kuvira, [[WhatYouAreInTheDark when no one would have blamed Korra for letting her die.]]]]

Korra also points out to Kuvira that they're NotSoDifferent in a well-done way. ''This'' is the moment when Korra truly becomes greater than Aang. While her predecessor would have energybent his opponent to finish the fight, Korra ''empathizes'' with Kuvira, proving that the strength to understand and pacify one's opponent is greater than forcibly subduing them.
* After the surrender, fans were likely wondering if [[EasilyForgiven Su would forgive Kuvira, given her insistence that everyone deserves a chance to atone for their mistakes and we just saw her eagerly accept her son back after his HeelRealization. Instead, she coldly says "You're going to answer for everything."]] For all she's said before, Su knows when someone has good and well crossed a line that can't be uncrossed.

** Korra's first move in the fight proper is to vault in on fire jets and KO Kuvira's copilots with airblasts flat out before either knew what hit them before battering the Great Uniter with a barrage of elemental attacks. Kuvira responds by metalbending the ''entire control room'', ripping up panels from the floor and ceiling and parts of the interface to use against her. Things get really awesome when Kuvira's liquefies the console's meteorite-metal trackballs, which the two bend so skillfully it appears to really ''be'' a liquid. The two proceed to deal out a huge amount of punishment on each other, softening their impacts with the walls of the Colossus by bending craters beneath themselves.

** At one point, Kuvira uses the gyroscopic control platform to throw Korra into the ceiling, with which she then tries to crush her ribcage . Korra, however, is not having any of that and prevents the clamp from contracting fully without ''any external metalbending moves'', forcing Kuvira to slam her into the control bank instead.


* Baatar and Huan's stand in defiance of Kuvira while the whole Zaofu kneels before her. Even more impressive is the fact they keep their calm while doing so; in fact, Baatar Jr ends up the one getting irritated and tries to order them to do it. Baatar Sr's sole reaction is to give him a sad, calm look, and [[DisappointedInYou tell him how disappointed he is. The Earth Empire may have won, but Baatar Jr clearly gets no satisfaction out of this victory.]]

Baatar Jr had a day of getting owned today.

* The [[spoiler: the RelationshipUpgrade itself is a moment of awesome! One of the single most influential pieces of animation in the twentyfirst-century, 21st century, rife with action, aesops, and life-lessons galore, and the animated series it tops it all off by confirming the most [[LesYay popular ship in the sequel series]], which is not only a crowning moment for [[WordOfGod Bryke,]] but for the advancement of LGBT representation in childrens children's media. Truly a beautiful ending to a magnificent series.]]

* Kuvira again shows why she is such a major threat and an awesome villain. She was immediately suspicious of Zhu Li when she heard about the first malfunction and then caught her red handed moments after the second. Kuvira then fights and beats Suyin in an epic fight with no outside help or interference. Finally, Toph shows up takes out Kuvira's forces and calls her out, but Kuvira doesn't even flinch. Kuvira may be the BigBad of the season, but she is clearly a {{Badass}}.
