|"That's what I really admire about you, Toph. You're so strong, and confident, and self-assured. And I know it doesn't matter, but you're really pretty."|
|— Katara to Toph.|
This ship isn't overly popular yet it has a decent amount of fans. It mainly stems from the two episodes where we really got to see the two bond. This first of these episodes is "Tales of Ba Sing Se" when the two went to go get a makeover. Toph was reluctant to do this but ended up enjoying it anyway. Then Star and her friends come to make fun of her so she and Katara get even by using their bending. Afterwards, Katara compliments Toph's confidence and tells her that she is beautiful. The second episode is "The Runaway" which includes a lot of conflict before they finally settle. Toph and Katara had butted heads in the past and this episode goes back on that aspect. However, Katara decides to pull a scam with Toph in order to prove that she can be fun. They ended up being locked in a wooden prison together where they finally bonded. After escaping, Toph trusted Katara with helping her write a letter to her parents.
I've never been much of a Katoph shipper. I'm sure that most of you know that I have no problem with femalexfemale ships but I don't really ship any in A:TLA as none of them really interest me. I already ship both Katara and Toph with multiple people but I have never shipped them with each other. The main issue is the fact that they butted heads a lot and had trouble getting along. Even if they were both attracted to females, I could not see a relationship between the two working out. There is just too much of a personality clash between them.
- They have a huge amount of respect for each other.
- Toph and Katara have argued a lot and probably would not get along well in a relationship.
- The two have never been seen to be attracted to each other or even other women.
- Katara ended up with Aang, making this relationship impossible. Toph would eventually end up with Kanto and then somebody else.
