"She is the first female water avatar in about 1000 years "
- Korra is the first female avatar to hail from a water tribe in about 1,000 years. --KiumaruHamachi (talk • contribs) 00:56, July 24, 2010 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi
- I think your rounding it. You are close but let's get info from the creators so we can can varify. Unless someone minds working out the math here.

- What about Avatar Kyoshi? She died in 82 BSC --> Avatar Roku --> Avatar Aang --> and Korra was born in 153 ASC. The math says that Korra is the first female avatar in abour 235 years, not 1,000. Which is actually very, very funny because Kyoshi lived to be 230 years old.

- It says female WATER avatar. The last Avatar from the Water Tribe was Avatar Kuruk, who was male. Domestibot (wall • contribs) 14:46, December 23, 2014 (UTC)
- I'm just gonna insert myself here. Looking at a few images, it looks as if the Water Avatar before Kuruk was female. You can clearly see her in Korra's vision of all the past Avatars (on the actual Avatar page here) but after the third row, the order gets messed up. Looking at Aang's vision, though, you can clearly see she's 7 back. Thus there are 7 entire Avatar lifespans between her death and Korra's birth. This includes Kiyoshi's and Aang's rather long chronological lifespans, counting 396 years between the two. Roku was 70 at his death so 466. Kuruk was about 33 at death so we'll just say about ~500 years for that cycle. Then comes Yangchen and the two unnamed Fire and Earth Avatars that came after the female Water Avatar we want. Those three would have to average around ~166.6 years of age each to hit the 1000 year mark between female Water Avatars. Now, I don't know about the longevity of people in this world, but I know Azulan passed away at 95, so I can assume people have fairly normal lifespans compared to us today. Kyoshi is an extreme exception, as she's also stated as being the oldest human ever. So all-in-all, Korra being the first female Water Avatar in 1000 years seems like a slight exaggeration. Avatars seem to die younger, Kiyoshi aside, so I'd put the number more accurate at ~710 years, using an average age of 70 for the other three. Math. The only exception would be if Avatars naturally have longer lifespans.Vernanonix (wall • contribs) 17:27, January 9, 2015 (UTC)
You'd think people who worry about possible incest ruining their ship would worry less about whether she might be tenzin's cousin X times removed, and more about the fact that, oh, I don't know... she's technically HIS FATHER.
They'd be like in the middle of making out, and then Aang pops up and is all "Son, did you clean your room, you always forget. :-/" 18.104.22.168 03:00, August 3, 2010 (UTC)aran
Nope....--Courage 21:07, November 7, 2010 (UTC)
OMG IT'S OMNIBENDER. But, nah. The line test is the latest. The people in the clip kind of gives an insight on how the rest of the people will look though. For one, they're not in like typical steampunk clothing, like I feared, so that's good. And they seem to be using normal weapons and not super advanced.
OH MY GOODNES!
I think it should be listed as 16-17, as Bryan says they need to clear it up, implying there is not yet a definitive answer and they need to talk about it first.-- Olórin The White Talk・Friends 00:59, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
- Mike: Korra is 16 so she’s older than Aang was.
- Bryan: I thought Korra was 17 so Mike and I have to get our stories straight.
- Mike definitely states the age as 16. Bryan implies that some of the stories need to be fixed, because he thought Korra was 17, when she isn't (note use of past tense). The 888th Avatar (talk) 02:45, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
- Note, Bryan says they have to get their stories straight, implying they need to talk about it and make the final decision, not just "I guess nevermind then."-- Olórin The White Talk・Friends 08:28, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
- "Get their stories straight" doesn't imply a final decision needing to be made about ages, it implies some "straightening" of the storylines they are writing. The 888th Avatar (talk) 08:32, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
- I thought it was pretty obvious. Mike said point blank that "Korra is 16", whereas Bryan mistaken her age as 17 ("I thought Korra was 17").AvaFan MsgMe 07:42, March 10, 2011 (UTC)
- I remember reading somewhere it was 16, maybe it was here. Just put 16-17 until we know for sure. Moon Beam (talk contribs) 07:29, May 5, 2011 (UTC)
I must bring this up again. The creators said they needed to get their stories "straight", they haven't decided if she is 16 or 17, I think we should have her age as 16-17. Seriously, here is the quote:
Michael DiMartino: Korra is 16 so she’s older than Aang was.
Bryan Konietzko : I thought Korra was 17 so Mike and I have to get our stories straight.

The recent parts of this article are very badly written. Too much unnecessary detail, the sentences are too long and all logic and clarity is lost because of this. Example (in the "Defeating Amon" section): "Korra and Mako stayed behind and acquired the attention of Amon where they eluded him across the hallways and hides in one of the rooms".
Somebody should consider rewrinting/rephrasing the article - it is about the main character of the second Avatar series.

In the infobox where it has the position category, should it say "Fully Realized Avatar" instead of "Avatar in training"? Because Korra has mastered all the elements and control the Avatar state.126.96.36.199 18:30, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
"Fully realized Avatar"
I'm not sure if calling Korra a fully realized Avatar would be appropriate just yet. After all, she's only just unlocked airbending, let alone mastered it. As far as I know, the term "fully realized" is only valid for Avatars who have completely mastered each bending discipline and have gained exceptional prowess in each.
Is it not fatal to so often unconscious, like this girl? An avatar should could tolerate a bit more. She was exactly 8 times unconscious alone in season one ... so please
I noticed that Korra's successor as the waterbender for the Fire Ferrets is still listed as "TBA." Given that the series is now over, I would say that his no longer applies. So I think that we should replace "TBA" with "Unnamed male waterbender" or just "Male waterbender", but I'm honestly not sure what is appropriate to be added.

- The first suggestion is fine - I decided to put that in. We do after all, have a history with that - an Unnamed fire Avatar article. PSUAvatar14 Want to have a word? 15:44, February 18, 2015 (UTC)
- Pretty sure it is a guy. In this image of the new team, the person on the right is wearing blue for waterbending, and definitely looks like a guy. HAMMEROFTHOR 23:57, February 19, 2015 (UTC)
KorrAsami - never officially confirmed!
KorrAsami has NEVER been officially confirmed. Yes they went to the spirit world together and hold hands but this doesn't confirm that they are in a relationship now. A wiki is there to only add CONFIRMED information and KorrAsami is just a theory. I think you should at least add possible in front of girlfriend. I know there are a bunch of KorrAsami shippers but face it: It's not official and this is a wiki not a speculation site. —Preceding unsigned comment added by MarvinX (wall • contribs) 22:12, February 26, 2015 (UTC)
- It was confirmed by Brian Konietzko on a tumblr post that they did indeed enter into a relationship. HAMMEROFTHOR 22:15, February 26, 2015 (UTC)
