    • A few things. For one, they gave her a body and outfit that accentuates her feminine features, namely the chest and hips. She also has a rather non-threatening personality, which tends to draw people in more than, say, Azula's intuitive aggressiveness or Mai's cold iron stare. There's also her flirtatious nature, which paints her as more receptive to romantic advances than the other female leads. All this builds up to a "sexy" character.

      Personally I'm more for the intuitive aggressiveness, but that's just me. To each his own.

      Really works, though. If you think about it, Azula is also quite classically beautiful, but she doesn't get quite as much attention. As Ty Lee says, a lot of this is probably because she intimidates people.

    • Yes, but even at her most relaxed times, she doesn't seem to have a naturally cheery face. Case in point- chronic b face. I've got one. Even when i'm bursting with joy, thanks to my blasted cheek bones and pouty mouth, people think i'm haughty or peeved off. I still think she's the most beautiful of the characters, followed closely by Mai... I have a thing for the brooding types ;) kekekekekekeee

      I can vouch for her there! My family isn't exactly wealthy, but i've certainly never gone without (except when I was really young and we lived in and out of hotels for a few months). My own mum was a great beauty, and me being the opposite, I learned to value other things more. Perhaps it was the same with Toph?

        Loading editor
    • Toph was kind of a beauty, maybe not the most attractive in Avatar but I think she's pretty. She just COULDN'T value it because she's blind. 

        Loading editor
    • Yea, my friend's current girlfriend looks slightly similiar to Toph, in a way.

        Loading editor
    • I think what I meant more specifically is that since her family held their wealth and status to such a high degree, she learned to value other characteristics that determine an individual's worth. Since I didn't get the beauty gene, I turned my efforts towards things such as improving my mind. Does that make any sense?

        Loading editor
    • Yeah I get it, like when I was little I wanted to stand out from the kids around me, who treasured fame. Toph is pretty, but probably wouldn't have valued beauty all that much even if she wasn't blind. Though she would be a lot different.

    • Can I take a moment to just say that even though Ty Lee was a flirt, she at least had SOME morals? I'm catching up on LOK since I gave birth around the time the 2nd season came out and what is with the love triangle between Mako, Korra, and Asami? It really makes me dislike all three of them... I would NEVER date ANYONE that my friends have dated and vice versa.. its a respect "thing". I think the creators really lost my vote here... pretty disappointed right about now :/

        Loading editor
    • Don't know if I'd care. We hypothetically broke up for a reason, & I don't own this hypothetical woman or my friends, so what does it matter if they date?

        Loading editor
    • It isn't a matter of "owning" anyone. As I previously stated, it's something that is done out of respect for your friend's FEELINGS. So yeah, it SHOULD matter because you're causing a FRIEND PAIN.

        Loading editor
    • that isn't a good rule; there are way too many situations where your friend (who we're assuming is the same gender as you, since we're talking about both of you dating the same person) wouldn't be in any emotional pain from you dating their ex: if your friend did the breaking up, then you dating them wouldn't be causing them any pain, for example, cuz she'd be over it. actually, the only situation in which you'd be causing them pain is if they got dumped and still had feelings for the dude. and if you're in a situtation where you could possibily date the guy, then he must have feelings for you, and by denying him, you're causing him pain. so in the end, you cause someone pain either way.

And even if my friend was the one who dumped the guy, I could never feel comfortable being intimate with someone who was intimate with a friend of mine. I'm not stating these as rules for all, just the rules that I follow. I'd much rather hurt some random guys' feelings than break the heart and trust of my friends.

      I think I was trying to say, in a roundabout way, that projecting one's own subjective standards of dating etiquette onto others is foolish. Mako, Asami, Bolin, & Korra are obviously okay with how things worked out for them. If we wanted to hold them to the same standards as real people, then I'd just say that it's nobody else's business.

    • With the whole love-triange thing, I think it's just Mako being... Mako. Asami and Korra had feelings for him, and you can't control who you like. Asami broke up with Mako for Korra, so by doing that she gave Korra her blessing. Asami didn't know he and Korra were still together when they got back together, that was all Mako being a jerk. And Korra didn't know he and Asami had hooked up while she was away, that was also Mako being a jerk. I'm sure after Korra and Mako broke up the second time, Asami and Korra had a nice evening b*tch slapping Mako in the face.

    • She's hot, IMO, because, in a way, she's kind of designed as an "eye candy" character. She's quite flirty and also ditzy, which causes a lot of boys to see her as easy and a one night relationship kind of girl to sleep with. In a way, she's kind of like a female counterpart to Sokka, since she's seen as attractive as a lot of boys and gets a lot of attention from them. She's also, as shown in "The Beach", there to show Azula's inability to get guys.

      Because apparently when someone such as myself gives an opinion on something, others like to think that i'm telling them thats how things should be. I never stated that the characters were supposed to follow MY thought process or rules of "dating", I was merely expressing my dislike for how the situation happened. Its like saying, "hm, I didn't really like that so and so could do this or that" Just my opinion.

      And Ty Lee is very squishy and adorable, but I wouldn't define her as "sexy" as far as I'm concerned. AGAIN, just my opinion.

    • Ty Lee is interesting....I mean, her personality makes some people think she's just a silly little girl, but her chi-blocking is totally powerful and can take out people like Azula (caught off surprise, yes), Katara, or people way older than her like those Earth Kingdom soldiers. But, I guess I can see what you mean, like some people would find her too flirtatious. 

        Loading editor
    • ^In all honesty, her chi blocking is usually extremely effective when the person against whom she's up either is new to her abilities or caught off guard. But she is an effective fighter and and even better hand to hand combatant than Azula and one of the absolute best in both "Avatar" shows.

      I guess that, for being attractive, she's designed to be the sexy type, with a big chest, cute face, and really fit, acrobatic body. This may be due to the fact that she spent years on end training in acrobatics in the circus, giving her a very nice, attractive body. This, coupled with the fact that she's nice and friendly and isn't the type to harm anyone too badly like the Fire Nation Royal Family would, makes her a really cute, fit girl whom a lot of guys look at as eye candy. Unfortunately, however, she is extremely objectified in the series and, IIRC, none of the guys whom she's encountered look at her as anything more than easy date for one night or so.

      I think that's what I really like about Azula. Girls that are overtly aggressive (like myself) tend to get shamed, overlooked, or we get the usual "girls should be more..." saying. I really loved that the boys created a girl who is so powerful, who doesn't sit around pouting or batting her eyelashes to get what she wants, and while she did turn a bit loopy in the end, she was REAL. She was RELATABLE. Same with Mai. I like that we have a girl who is pretty indifferent, yet one of the most desirable men in the series HAS her. Ty Lee is, in my opinion, is the average girl. I see types like her everywhere I go. It isn't necessarily BAD or anything.

    • To be fair, she is also willing to stand up and fight if she has reason to. She's not nearly as pwecious as she could have been, and to some extent she has a reason for her behavior in her "matching set" family. Heck, Katara was terrified of her for some times. None of the women of Avatar are well and truly in the "pretty girl" trope, in my opinion. All of them are warrior born in one way or another.

Azula is great & all, but if left to her own devices, every single scene she was in until the infamous breakdown would have just been her bragging about something. Ty Lee is the one who talks to the other 2, the most likely to comment on some outside event or person, & so on. They're always little things, but still, they serve to inject some personality into the trio. We don't know what a full conversation with Ty Lee would be like because no one ever really tries to have one. That said, it is not unreasonable that she would at least have some interesting stories from the circus, & later Kyoshi Island.

      I have to disagree on a few points. That woman in the first image is certainly NOT what the Greeks would have considered "classically beautiful". The Greeks admired a softer looking woman, not one who looks to be skin and bones. Mai's outfit isn't impractical- she's has porcelain skin. Some women with fair skin NEED to cover up because they don't tan well and get burned or have very sensitive skin. And honestly, there isn't a way to "try" to look like a slob. You either are or you aren't. I, personally, am a slob. Toph incarnate. I shower when I feel like it, brush my hair when I feel like it, etc. Just adding pomade to your hair to make it look like you just rolled out of bed... you can always tell you care how you look because you're using PRODUCT.

      I like that Mai doesn't need to show off her body. I like that she doesn't need to openly display her personality, that she doesn't lay all her cards out on the table. I like that she's boring, because it's exhausting to have so much going on. Just my opinion, tho.

    • "That woman in the first image is certainly NOT what the Greeks would have considered "classically beautiful". The Greeks admired a softer looking woman, not one who looks to be skin and bones."

      Yes she is. First, I have no idea why you're commenting on body shape. It isn't in the picture, so you couldn't possibly know & it probably isn't what I was getting at. Secondly, classical beauty refers to having symmetrical, proportional features. Compare her face with Aphrodite's.

      "Mai's outfit isn't impractical- she's has porcelain skin. Some women with fair skin NEED to cover up because they don't tan well and get burned or have very sensitive skin."

      Then it wouldn't make sense to have so much of her back & shoulders uncovered, as that is statistically the most likely place she'd end up being burned after coming out from under her umbrella, which I would know because I AM someone with easily burned & irritated skin.

I'm talking about their standard ethnic costumes, not bathing suits and such. I agree that it's nice to see a girl look sexy without needing to dress so :)

Azula, despite being more important, does not dress like her, & Ty Lee is considered the most attractive of the trio. Now, I'm sure Mike & Bryan, as always, drew from ancient culture, but we know that they were also basing Mai on the modern goth subculture. Actually, that's something I really should have mentioned when I compared Samurai Champloo to Avatar.

      Science says that you will consider the same person more or less attractive depending on how we do her hair & make up. I would not be surprised at all if that extends to how nicely a person acts. Most of the people I talk to say that they see it that way.

      Well, if a girl is wearing a dress, she will automatically act more ladylike. She'll cross her legs and sit up straighter. Even if that girl doesn't like wearing dresses, it's an automatic thing for a girl over the age of five. And that does translate into behavior.

      I know. I wonder if that applies to guys in dresses, too. But then again, Ive never seen a guy cross his legs. I'd imagine that'd be slightly painful.

    • Meh, I never wear dresses or have fancy manners, but I always cross my legs. But not sure how you define "ladylike", Ty Lee didn't seem to be doing anything especially "ladylike", she displayed her impressive acrobatics and all the guys still liked her. Not saying acrobatics are bad, but not what comes to mind when one thinks of "ladylike".

    • I would hypothetically say that it would conflict with his sense of gender identity, causing anxiousness & self-consciousness, & thus unable to lose themselves in the role. If you could bypass that, then it would raise an interesting question. I would say that either it's so far from their minds that they just act normally, or they would act even more stereotypically feminine than the girls.

      Also, it depends on how you cross them.

      EDIT: I would call Ty Lee "girly." "Lady like" is more like Katara & Toph when they infiltrated that party.

      I've gotta disagree with you on that, m'dear. I've seen a lot of girls.. A LOT OF GIRLS who, are definitely not what boys would generally consider "attractive" that have a lot of boys pining after them. I want to go into detail, but I think a lot of people would get offended here. One girl I knew in particular was pretty overweight, had bad acne, chipmunk teeth, a strong obsession with MLP, had a really high pitched voice, and when she would talk, she had to take several breaths in between because she would talk so fast. But she had at least 3 guys desperate to be with her, and I could never figure it out. She wasn't even a kind person! She was always cheating on her boyfriend and constantly would harass people for drugs.... She would always complain about her life on her FB wall... But again, this girl had lots of guys wanting her! So really, i'm pretty sure at some point, looks really don't matter to a majority of guys.

    • Oddly enough, it is actually slightly less probable to have a girl than a boy, because the X chromosome is literally a lot heavier than the Y, relatively speaking, which slows the sperm down.

    • qin, lovely pun.... if you can call that a pun.

      you bring up a lot of good points neo. although the actual mass of a chromosome is so insanely small, that it really doesn't have a notable effect on the speed of the sperm cell. also, in order for a sperm to penetrate the egg and merge nuclei to form a zygote, many many sperm are required to weaken the outer layer of the egg cell before one can break through. and by that time, it's a fairly equal chance of X and Y carrying sperm to get into the egg.

      A poor choice of words...the ass that you had a huge crush on was 12 years old at the time those new episodes came out. I'm pretty sure the rest of her was about the same age. Ty Lee was only a few years older...maybe 15. That's jailbait. Leave it alone. Not worth the trouble.

      This whole thread about hot underage girls is weird and creepy. I'm not sure if the Avatar universe has a version of To Catch A Predator, but if they did, Chris Hansen would totally be knocking on your door right now. Does the Fog of Lost Souls hold pedophiles?

      Also, they are cartoon characters, not real people. Just saying.

      2. Boobs of Steel. Sorry, but 'nough said.

      3. Because her bubbly, supersocial personality, her modesty and her desperate need for attention make her the hottest fictive female that would ever consider nerds like the most of us as boyfriend-material.

      4. Once again: Ty Lee

        Loading editor
    • ^^ Yup. Unlike Mai and Azula, Ty Lee seems like she gives any guy a chance, despite being way out of their leagues. Mai seems like the hot loner type some guys seem to dig. I don't think I have to explain much about Azula. She's much too intimidating for a relationship or a one night stand. People don't really like having to be constantly anxious and afraid of their partner in an relationship. Ty Lee, however, is incredibly bubbly and has a nice body. Of course, I think it was pretty obvious most of her flirting with the guys in The Beach was so they could do small favors for her. I don't think she was actually remotely romantically interested in them, but she likes the attention. 

        Loading editor
    • I think Ty Lee may also be a people pleaser... she gives people attention to make them happy which makes her feel good, and then she can't do anything to hurt them because then she would feel bad.

      Intimidating is an understatement. Try borderline psychotic.

    • borderline psychotic is being very generous, if we're talking about Azula. The girl is completely mental, and only gets worse as the show goes on. She's hot, yeah. But she's also an arrogant, sadistic psychopath, which to me is rather a big turn-off.

      Out of the two that weren't total basket cases (Ty Lee and Mai), Mai's not bad-looking (not as good-looking as the other two, but still), but far too apathatetic where everything(except Zuzu and/or that other guy she dated in the comics) is concerned, which makes her kinda boring IMO. 

      So while I would describe Ty Lee personally as more "cute" than "hot", she's still definitely my favorite of the three both in terms of physical appearance and personality, for many reasons that have already been described above by several people.

      I loved that scene the most! But, like, what if Chan didn't totally chicken out and actually agreed her with her idea to be the strongest couple in the entire world? How different would you think Azula's story would be? I imagine her plan would have been to burn the Earth Kingdom with her boytoy and become the Phoenix Emperor and Empress. But since that didn't happen, her plan was left with ruling the planet with her dad.

      1. Hyper-flexibility.  Great for getting into some... interesting positions.

      3. Bare dat midriff, gurl.

      4. Perpetually playful and cheerful.

      5. Being a quirky weirdo gives her the appeal of unusual uniqueness, and potential insecurity.  The knowledge that the majority of people around Ty Lee don't think she's normal means that she'd have a greater need for closeness and acceptance with her romantic partner.  That right there seriously amps up the Waifu Factor for a lot of people.

I first watched the series back 7 or 8 years ago when I was 9 or 10 and definitely had a huge crush on Ty Lee then. Rewatching it now, I still do and it might even be bigger. Despite girls like Ty Lee not really being my type, I still find her a bit irresistible. Probably not any long term stuff but I definitely would date if I could. I don't care as much for the feminine features or the clothes she wears but they do play a little part. Her face is really cute and I love her personality and also her hair, for whatever reason. Toph and Mai would definitely come next for me.
