WaterbendingWaterbending, one of the four elemental bending arts, is the hydrokinetic ability to control water, as well as its many forms. The people of the Water Tribes utilize this type of bending. The Water Tribes are divided into the Southern Water Tribe, the Northern Water Tribe, and the lesser known Foggy Swamp Tribe, each with their own bending style.Water is the element of change. The moon is the source of power in Waterbending, and the original Waterbenders learned from the moon by observing how the moon pushed and pulled the tides. The Water Tribes are the only people to not learn Bending from an animal.The fighting style of Waterbending is mostly flowing and graceful, acting in concert with the environment. Foggy Swamp Style Waterbending, however, is more rigid and straight – likely in concert with the often stagnant nature of swamp water. Waterbenders deal with the flow of energy; they let their defence become their offense, turning their opponents’ own forces against them.Fighting StyleWaterbenders use slow movements and elegant forms that evoke the feel of flowing water. Waterbending's strength is its great versatility. Rather than supporting a separate set of offensive methods, Waterbending employs defensive techniques that can be transformed into attacks and counters - defence into offense. Instead of simply deflecting an attack, Waterbending's defensive manoeuvres focus on control, achieved through turning an opponent's own strength against him, rather than directly harming the opponent.
Waterbending Abilities and TechniquesWater Manipulation: Almost all forms of Waterbending involve moving and shaping a body of water to the Waterbender's desire. By simply levitating a large mass of water, Waterbenders can move water anywhere they wish, even parting it under the surface of a lake or sea, allowing them to walk along the bottom of a basin without the need to swim. These large bodies of water can also be used as weapons, either by shaping them into gigantic whips, swung repeatedly at a target as a snake-like body, formed momentarily into a razor-sharp edge that can cut through even metal, or simply dropped onto an opponent to smother them or put out a fire. On the sea or ocean, Waterbending can be used to create giant maelstromsSnow Manipulation: A move that pushes and levitates snow for attack, shielding and defence. Living on the poles of the Earth, Waterbenders are accustomed to living in the snow. The snow is used as the first source when Waterbending. They are able to compress the snow together in order to slice through objects, even metal. Masters can bend the snow to make a snow spout that can carry the bender around, and they can still attack and dodge at the same timeWaves: By moving a large mass of water without separating it from its original source, Waterbenders can create waves of nearly any size. They do this by using an upward movement that raises the source, which they then send away in their desired direction. This can be used to sweep opponents away or even as a form of transport, with the bender surfing on the crest of the wave. This same process can be used to propel waterborne craftsWater Walls/Water Shields: Water can be moulded into a variety of shapes and can be used to deflect an attack, trap opponents in a viscous body, reshaped and propelled at attackers before they can recover, or solidified into a shield of ice. This diversity and ability to swiftly change to suit the situation is what makes the Waterbender's defence so adaptable. Although usually protective, the shield needs some type of compression or else it won't be effectiveWater Temperature Manipulation: Waterbenders also possess the ability to alter the physical state of the water they manipulate (between liquid, solid and gas) at will. Changing the phase of water allows for multiple techniques in the course of a battle, from encasing an opponent in ice to hiding behind a wall of mist. Ice and steam/fog can also be moulded in a diverse range of shapes. Ice provides a degree of hard lethality since it can be moulded into spikes or blades to pin down or impale opponents. Steam or mist can obscure a battlefield and mask movement. A Waterbender can easily superheat and boil water and other liquids to scalding temperatures. Waterbenders also possess the ability to breathe an icy mist that freezes water and other substancesWater Pressure Manipulation: Waterbenders are also able to manipulate water pressure, allowing their techniques to grasp other objects or cut through without simply parting around them. Since water is nigh-incompressible, it can be used as a semi-solid while being able to move and flow like a liquid. Water can be pressurized to such a level where it can slice through metal. Waterbenders can also use this to avoid sinking in water, effectively allowing them to walk on waterCloud manipulation: A skilled Waterbender or Airbender can easily manipulate clouds, which are of air and water, to create various shapes, used in that particular instance to provide a message to nearby villagers of an erupting volcano. It is unknown if a Waterbender can perform this technique without an Airbender and vice versaHealing: Waterbenders can sometimes use a unique sub-skill: the ability to heal wounds by redirecting energy paths, or chi, throughout the body, using water as a catalyst. Waterbenders can use their abilities to heal by surrounding a sick or injured person with water, which then glows with a brilliant, silver-colored light. The use of healing Waterbending techniques is generally taught only to female Waterbenders of the Northern Water TribeIce Claws: A move where the bender draws water around their fingers and freezes it. They can also be sent forward, shooting them at an opponent. A Waterbender can also use this as an advantage; being small and unnoticeable, they can hide them in their sleeves. Additionally, this technique uses very little water and thus can be performed quickly using the Condensation technique. It can also be assumed that Waterbenders can also create ice glovesIce Creeper: A Waterbender can send a ray of ice on the ground, speeding at an opponent to freeze them. This technique freezes a trail of water beginning with the Waterbender performing the move and ending with their targets freezingIce Shield: A Waterbender can freeze an amount of water in front of them, creating a shield of iceIce Discs: A Waterbender can create a cylindrical column of ice and proceed to slice razor-sharp sections of it off and send them at an opponent. They are sharp around the edges but all very thinBreath of Ice: A Waterbender can use their breath to rapidly freeze objects, such as metallic chains, or an opponent. For a more advanced version of the technique, the user takes a deep breath and exhales the air as a cloud of freezing mistWater Filtering: When working in concert with an Earthbender, a Waterbender can purify polluted water. The Waterbender suspends the polluted water in the air while the Earthbender removes the pollutantsWaterbending master levelThe mark of a master Waterbender is the ability to swiftly change from one state of water to another and rapidly switch techniques during combat, keeping the opponent off guard while constantly adapting to the enemyBubble: When in need to cross large bodies of water, capable Waterbenders are able to create a bubble around themselves, keeping an air supply for them and for othersWater Drill: A high-pressure, rotating column of water. Capable of exerting a significant amount of pressure upon a solid surface, that allows the action of a drill. The move takes mastery of Waterbending since the motions to create a constantly twisting body of water takes bending skillWaterspout: This high-level technique involves controlling a whirlpool-like pillar of water as a weapon, rotating it and directing its movements at the same time. Another form exists, which is nicknamed the "Water Snake", in accordance to the waterspouts constantly shifting and coiling movements. It forms a giant snake of water around the lower body, elevating them from the groundIce Dome: A highly advanced technique, a Waterbender may surround a foe in a viscous sphere of water and then freeze it, trapping their opponent insideWater Dome: A master Waterbender can collect water from the rain, forming a dome which can be used for both offense and defenceIce Floor: With a sufficient amount of water a master can cover a large area of the ground with ice, trapping enemies' feet in ice and allowing the Waterbender to slide around Ice Prison: This technique covers an opponent in a prison made of ice. By finely controlling the position of the person within, this technique can restrict the motions of a opponent's hands, thus rendering them powerlessIce Tunnelling: Waterbenders are able to swim through thick ice with the same ease as through water. This allows them to surprise their foesMaelstrom: In a large body of water, a Waterbender can create a gigantic whirlpoolWaterfall: Waterbending masters are able to stream water above them and cause it to stream down cliffs and hills, creating waterfallsIce Ramp: Waterbenders can manipulate ice as a means of short transportationRazor Rings: An experienced Waterbender can create multiple simultaneous water rings capable of cuttingIce hand Razors: A specialized technique that involves freezing water on the side of the hand, a waterbender can use this as a tool to cut through objectsIce bridge: Underwater bubble: Ice craft: Water stream: Steam barrier: Ice bullets: Water jaws: Ice armour: Glacier formation: Waterbending masters can create enough ice to create a glacierAvalanche: Waterbending masters are able to control enough snow to create avalanches and stop it from overflowing or reaching a destinationSpecial Waterbending TechniquesCondensation: Not only can skilled Waterbenders condense clouds into a usable source of water when they are within close range of one, but they also can condense invisible water vapor right out of the air. Although, due to the limited quantities of water present in the air, as a mere 1% at most of the earth's atmosphere is water vapour, the amount of water extracted from the air is quite minimal. Favourable environment and climatic conditions increase the amount of water one can remove from the air.Avatar Level WaterbendingAvatars born into the fire nation have greater difficulty learning and mastering Waterbending, since water and fire are natural oppositesTsunamis: Since they can control larger amounts of water, Avatars are capable of creating and controlling water bodies of far greater size and scale, including causing massive tsunamis, at will. A large wave can be made by a Waterbender by making a circular motion with his/her armsDistanced Waterbending: Avatars can use Waterbending from distances which a Waterbender would not normally be able to access. An avatar can pull water in from a sea towards them and raise tides from the seaWater Compression: Normally nearly incompressible, an Avatar in the Avatar State has enough power over water to compress its volume, compacting several thousands of gallons into a small volumeWeaknessesExternal water source: A Waterbender gains a significant advantage or disadvantage over other benders depending on the amount of water in the vicinity. Enemies are able to take advantage of this by driving them away from water sources. As a result, travelling Waterbenders often carry a water skin with them at all times. Master Waterbenders are able to extract water from plants, ultimately killing the plants, and even condense water vapour out of thin air. Both the latter and the former of course cannot yield very large quantities of water, particularly in the case of water vapour use, which depends on weather conditions. It is not known, most likely due to the disturbing nature of the concept, whether a Waterbender could extract the water from an animal or human in the same manner as a plant. It is implied that such a thing is possible, though the skill would most likely be of a difficulty level on par with Bloodbending. Additionally, the ethical repercussions would most likely have a detrimental effect on the user's emotional state, possibly so intense as to prevent the technique from being practicedEmotional state: A Waterbender's power comes from the internal life energy chi. Due to this; a Waterbender's power is connected to his or her present emotional state. If an inexperienced Waterbender were to lose his or her temper, their Waterbending force is intensified, but in turn, control is lost. Although this has the potential to be quite dangerous, it also serves as a boon to a bender with proper training and experience, as well as balance over his or her emotions.Binding: Waterbending is almost entirely dependent on the movement of the bender's arms, quite the opposite of Earthbending which mostly uses the lower body. This leaves the Waterbender vulnerable when he or she is bound at the hands or has had the flow of chi blocked in the arms.EarthbendingEarthbending, one of the four elemental bending arts, is the geokinetic ability to manipulate earth and rock, in all their various forms. It is utilized by people of the Earth Kingdom.Earth is the element of substance, making Earthbenders and their people diverse, strong, persistent, and enduring. The first Earthbenders, Oma and Shu, learned the art from Badgermoles The key to Earthbending is utilizing waiting and listening for the right moment to strike and, when that moment comes, acting decisively. In other words, Earthbenders generally endure their enemies' attacks until the right opportunity to counterattack reveals itself, then strike with unyielding forceFighting styleEarthbending is generally based on heavily rooted stances and strong kicks and punches that evoke the mass and power of earth. The martial art is based on the movements of animals, including the tiger, which is utilized when initiating hard blows, and the crane, which is used to land gently back on the Earth. Earthbenders, mostly Earthbending soldiers and generals, typically travel barefoot to increase their connection with the earth and their powerEarthbending is also one of the most diverse of the bending arts fighting styles, ranging from the most commonly used Earthbending, the rigid and collectively learned Earthbending of the Dai Li and the individually taught styles such as Toph's unique Earthbending technique. Earthbenders are generally muscular, tough and direct and like all benders, their technique reflects on their individualized personalitiesEarthbending differs from the other bending arts in that it maintains a distinct balance between offensive and defensive capabilities (though Waterbending involves a more refined version by channelling defence into offense). Earthbending uses a balance of strength and defence to overwhelm opponentsThe principle of jing is the essence of battle strategy of all bending arts, with a total of eighty-five possible actions. Positive jing occurs when one chooses to fight, while negative jing is when one chooses to evade. The Earthbending discipline stresses neutral jing, which involves listening, waiting and attacking at the right moment The concept of neutral jing is also closely related to the philosophy of "sticky hands", a practice common to some southern Chinese martial arts such as Chu Gar Southern Praying Mantis Kung Fu and Wing Chun. The purpose of sticky hands is to enable the practitioner to predict their opponent's next move. Similar to Toph detecting the movements of others through her connection with earth, a practitioner learns to detect their opponent's upcoming move by maintaining constant contact between their own arm and their foe's arm (may also be between their hands or wrists). By practicing with a partner in this manner, a practitioner will learn to "read" the slight movements of their opponent's arms to detect their next attack and then move accordingly to either strike before the attack is made or move in the same direction with the attack and effectively neutralize it. Concepts such as listening, reacting, balancing attacks and defense and drawing power from a stable lower body are often referred to in the practice of sticky hands, again, closely relating to many primary concepts in Earthbending.Earthbending Abilities and techniquesEarth & Stone Levitation: The most common attack involves levitating nearby pieces of earth and stone of numerous sizes (more powerful benders can move larger masses) and propelling them at foes with punching or kicking motionsRock Shield: A levitated slab of rock can also double as a shield when positioned in front of a bender. This can also be performed with a slab or sheet of bedrock thrust out of the earth's surface. The shield can be hurled at the opponent for quick retaliationEarth Smash: Earthbenders can easily destroy rocks and boulders with punches and kicks, even if they have a very small amount of muscle mass, possibly by making the earth in the rocks weaker, although the exact nature of this technique, if it even is a technique, is never explained. This technique is useful when facing other Earthbenders, as it allows the Earthbender to destroy any earthen projectiles sent at them and break out of imprisoning techniques. However, it does not seem to affect objects not made of earthEarth Sinking: More advanced Earthbenders can forcibly sink their opponents into the ground, imprisoning them or even suffocating them in earthEarthquakes/Fissures: Striking the ground with feet, fists, or hammers, and can create localized earthquakes or fissures to throw opponents off-balance. This same process can be used to sculpt a landmass or to slice large chunks of rock clean off a surface to create avalanches or rockfalls. More advanced Earthbenders can make very narrow fissures for precise attacksEarth Block: Earthbenders can bring up blocks of earth and launch them at their enemiesEarth column: Earth Gauntlet: A much less advanced version of Earth armour that can be used to throw back opponents with hard solid force. The technique is useful in that it grants some level of the protection of Earth Armour but allows the rest of the body to remain flexible.Quicksand: Earthbenders turn the ground to quicksand to immobilize an enemy, or to create a soft landing for themselves should they fall from a height. Earthbenders can also do the reverse of this, compacting sand together to create harder projectiles or a firmer grip on the ground. Rock Slide: If an Earthbender is near a cliff or mountain, he or she can cause many rocks of a multitude of sizes to rain down on his or her opponent.Earth Wall: Earthbenders can create walls of earth, which can be used for both defense and offense, as well as for practical things, like constructionEarth Column: A more powerful version of rock projectiles, involving forcing columns of rock out of the ground. Using a similar principle, an Earthbender can shoot a stream of small ruts and protrusions from underground at their opponent. This can also be used to enhance the benders' jumps. It is, however, limited to the ground and does not have the same range as a rock projectile.Earth Line: As an offensive attack, Earthbenders can create a line of twisted columns and propel it forward.Earth Material Manipulation: Earthbending is not limited to rock or soil alone. An Earthbender can also manipulate coal, gems, crystals, and other earth-based materials, like meteorites and jennamiteRock Hanging: Earthbenders also possess limited magnetic capabilities, allowing them to grasp vertical surfaces and cling unsupported to earthen structures. The Dai Li are the only ones that have demonstrated this ability, although it may be that they used their earth gloves to cling onto the rocky surfaceEarth Launch: While Earthbenders like being routed to the ground, with some like Toph being unable to see in the air, they can quickly move rock beneath them and launch them several tens of feet into the air, whether to catch airborne opponents or to travel fasterEarth Shelter: This can be used by Earthbenders to create a shelter or dome which can provide an instant shelter in the wilderness. It can probably also be used to trap enemies, but this application would not work against an Earthbending opponent, who would be able to cancel out the technique.Earth Compression: It is possible for Earthbenders to compress large chunks of rock into smaller, denser chunks, or to compress several smaller chunks into one big piece of rock. This technique is quite difficult; ad may need two earthbenders, possibly causing too much strain if done by a single Earthbender. Water Filtering: When working in concert with a Waterbender, an Earthbender can purify polluted water. The Waterbender suspends the polluted water in the air while the Earthbender removes the pollutants and sets them asideEarth Mannequin: An Earthbender with a decent grasp of sculpting can cause human-like figures to sprout out of the ground and slide from place to placeEarthbending master levelEarth Tunnelling: Earthbenders can move through the earth to out-manoeuvre their foes either by opening tunnels or by pulling the earth past them, literally swimming through the groundEarth Armour: Earthbenders can bring rocks, dusts, pebbles, or crystals around them and mold them to fit their body and create something similar to armour. They can also hide inside the earth by bending the rock around them as a shellMountain formation: Earth Wave: High level Earthbenders can create a wave of earth to ride on and use it as a form of transportation. The downsides of the wave are that it takes a lot of energy to produce, as well as intense concentration; the slightest distraction could cause the user to lose control of the wave. They can also force a wave of earth outwards and use it as an extremely powerful offensive attackEarth Bomb: By sending a rock towards the ground, Earthbenders can cause massive damage as well as throw their opponents off their feetRemote Earthbending: If an Earthbender is suspended from the ground, but is aware that there is earth somewhere near, the Earthbender can focus his energies and bend that earth out of his physical reach out of sheer concentration.Avatar level EarthbendingGreater Earth Levitation: With their greater power and stronger connection to the earth, Avatars can move hill-sized statues at willTectonics: An Avatar can Earthbend on a scale vast enough to move and separate entire landmassesPowered Compression: This is a much more powerful version of the Earth Compression technique. An avatar can gather boulder-sized rocks and simultaneously compress each fragment into smaller, denser and harder rocks, essentially keeping the rocks under pressure for more volatile attacks if needed. Lastly, the rocks are directed to orbit until they are put to useSpecial TechniquesRock Gloves: The Dai Li have mastered the rock glove technique. Similar to an Earth Gauntlet, they cover their hands in small rocks then project them at a target as bullets or compacted fists to bludgeon the opponent. A more refined and favoured method however is to use them as detachable hands, maintaining the hand shape and literally grabbing and restraining the opponent from a distance.Seismic Sense: A technique originally developed by the blind Badgermoles, skilled Earthbenders are able to sense vibrations through the ground, "seeing" by sensing their surroundings and making a mental image of it. It allows for a 360 degree field of "vision", outside of normal line-of-sight. To operate, the user needs direct contact with the ground, preferably without something like shoes in between. It presumably only works on earth-based material, including metal. Thus it is unknown the extent of material for which Seismic Sense can be applied. The seismic sense is so acute that an Earthbender is capable of sensing even ants moving about, they can identify people by the way they walk, and can almost always tell if someone is lying by sensing his or her physical reactions, such as breathing and heart rateWeaknessesEarth connection: An Earthbender's powers are firmly rooted to the ground on which they stand. Removing them any substantial distance from the earth, such as in the air or on the ocean, strips them of their ability to bend. However it has been shown that Earthbenders are still able to Earthbend if the ground connecting them to the earth is made of metal. Particularly powerful Earthbenders are able to bend effectively with the smallest gestures, and quite possibly with sheer concentration, Earthbending has a distinct advantage or disadvantage as a form of martial art depending on the amount of earth present in the vicinity.Metal and wood: An extension of the last weakness, because nearly all Earthbenders do not know how to bend processed metals, the bending abilities of an Earthbender can be negated by securing them within a metallic barrier, separating them from any contact with the earth. however, Metalbenders are an exception to this. Wood, contrary to the Western notion of earth, cannot be subject to Earthbending because it is neither a mineral nor mineral-likeReliance on the lower body: Earthbending is at its strongest when the feet are in direct contact with the ground, enabling them to transfer their kinetic energies into their bending for fast and powerful moves. Since a skilled Earthbender could overcome this weakness by bringing the other parts of their body in contact with the earth, as stated above, the danger level of this weakness could be debated. FirebendingFirebending, one of the four elemental bending arts, is the pyrokinetic ability to create and control fire. The people of the Fire Nation, as well as the lesser known Sun Warriors, practice this type of bending.Fire is the element of power, consisting of overpowering force tempered by the unflinching will to accomplish tasks and desires. However, the recently militaristic Fire Nation twisted this into Firebending being fuelled by rage, hate, and anger. Firebending draws its power from the sun, and the first human Firebenders derived their Firebending techniques from the dragonsFirebending is notable for its intensive attacking style and general lack of adequate defence moves, although some notable Firebenders utilize creative defensive moves such as creating walls of fireFighting stylesFirebending moves are based mainly on martial arts that are featured quick, successive attacks that exert extreme power momentarily, much like an explosion. It optimizes a strong continuous offense, sacrificing defence for greater power, the principle behind a pre-emptive strike, making Firebending the most aggressive of the four bending artsFirebenders use their internal body heat as a source of their bending. This facet of Firebending is in sharp contrast to the other bending arts, which manipulate already present sources of their element, though Firebenders can also control or enhance flames nearby. Unlike other bending disciplines, Firebending has few defensive moves aside from blocking and dodging, although master Firebenders are able to create walls of fire to absorb incoming attacks or shoot down incoming projectilesFirebending uses concentrated barrages of fire to overwhelm opponents before striking a fatal blow. Swift, whirling kicks and punches generate diverse shapes for offensive attacksCircular motion also seems to be a crucial element to the skill as it seems to be a precession to "power up" the Firebender's flames. When creating lightning, the Firebenders often move their arms in slow, circular motions, similar to Waterbenders but with more tension. As said before, whirling kicks or punches are used many times in the series to create arcs, or just to power their bendingFirebending AbilitiesFireballs: A basic ability; jabs and punches produce miniature fireballs and missiles of flame. These can be charged up (refer to Charged Attacks) to create larger, slower bursts, or swift repetitive strikes to keep opponents off balanceFire Streams: Another basic Firebending ability, Firebenders can shoot continuous streams of fire from their fingertips, fists, palms, or legs. These streams can be widened to create flame-thrower like techniques. Fire Nation soldiers are often seen using this technique to damage or destroy villages or townsBlazing Rings & Arcs: Spinning kicks or sweeping arm movements create rings and arcs to slice larger, more widely spaced or evasive targetsFire Bomb: Considered a short range attack, a Firebender can create a flame at the end of a limb, and thrust the flame down in an explosive burst. Fire Daggers: Creating blowtorch-like jets from the fist or fingertips to use as close range sword-like attacks. However, these lack the ability to actually block physical objects. This technique seems very inefficiencyFire Whip: An extension of a fire stream, this continuous stream of flame can be utilised as a whipFire floor: Fire dome: Force of fire: Fire Blade: A more advanced version of a blazing arc, Firebenders can narrow their fire arcs to create thin blades of fire that they can launch at their opponents Fire Lashes: An even further extension of the Fire Whip/Stream, Firebenders can create a long lash of fire, and bring them down on their enemies or create smaller, multiple lashes and envelop an area with fireFlare Glove: Firebenders are able to surround their hands with fire, using it as an offense for close enemiesFire Circle: A technique demonstrated by the Sun Warriors. They created a circle of fire and suspended it in the air for an extended period of time.The only time these are seen, the circles were made with the Original Flame. It may be that this technique is exclusively used in the Sun Warriors' religious rituals and has no use in combat, as it's never seen anywhere elseShield of Fire: Creates a protective fire shield around the front of, or the whole body of, a Firebender that can deflect attacks and explosions. May be a lesser version of the Wall of FlamesHeat Control: Certain advanced Firebenders appear to have the ability to control heat. Using this technique, Firebenders can heat a wide range of liquids, like water or tea, heat metal to scalding temperatures, or melt iceBlocking Fire: A skilled Firebender can diffuse and extinguish an oncoming fire blast from another Firebender with a swift kick, jab, or defensive movement, allowing them to stop attacksFirebending Master LevelWall of Flames: One of Firebending's few defensive techniques, a situated explosion or controlled inferno, this wall of concentrated flames acts as a barrier to incoming attacks. It may be a more powerful version of a Fire Shield. It not only protects against attacks, but when used right, can be used to stealthily escape from foes. If a Firebender is precise with this technique, his flames can burn on waterFire Disks: A whirling disk of flame, capable of being used at long rangeHeat Redirection: Heat absorption allows for the absorption of heat from one hand and passing through one's body and out the other hand. It can be used to cool down lava or boiling waterCharged Attacks: Certain Firebenders have been shown charging their attacks before releasing them, allowing them to create enormous blasts of fireFire Augmentation: Firebenders can also control the size and intensity of any nearby flames and can draw them in to manipulate them at willPressure Control: An advanced form of Heat Control; the Firebender superheats the air around him or her, causing a rise in air pressure in small, enclosed areas which often has explosive implicationsJet Propulsion: Skilled Firebending Masters are able to conjure huge amounts of flame to propel themselves at high speeds on the ground or through the airAvatar level firebendingLong-Range Multiple Fire Whips: An Avatar-level Firebender can produce fire whips, the most being five at once. They are capable of reaching across long distances. Each fire whip is also very wide and moves in a similar fashion to squid or octopus tentacles. They have enough destructive power to demolish large rock formations.Fire spout: This move would be too extreme for normal master firebenders, and so only avatars can perform this technique. Similar to the Waterspout, avatars are able to rotate and control the direction of a spout made of fire enough to levitate them off the ground and remain in the air for as long as they wish to or can maintain it. the technique would prove fatal to a ordinary firebenderSpecial techniquesBlue Fire: Firebenders can control the intensity of their Firebending, reflected in the colour of the flames. These blue flames are more efficient than the standard yellow and orange flames produced by lesser forms of Firebending, channelling more energy into the attack and likely travelling further without dissipating. While not to be confused with lightning, blue fire also seems to possess more physical force and produces a combustive effect more intense than that of normal fire, likely due to the fact that it superheats the air around it as it strikes, which is the same process that creates thunder. It is possible that these colours of flame may also have special properties, allowing firebenders to create not only orange, yellow and blue flames, but purple, green, pink and red fire as wellBreath of Fire: The Breath of Fire involves the user Firebending out of his or her mouth, mixing air from the lungs with the flame creating a wider, hotter blast. With its wide, encompassing range, the technique allows for staving off multiple opponents and is also shown to be able to instantaneously warm the body even under frigid conditions. It is also useful for stealth, as it requires no hand motions and can thus be impossible to predictWeaknessesPoor breath control: It is said that true Firebending power comes neither from physical size nor strength, but rather from the very control of one's breath. Even the fattest, squat man with no exceptional strength or physique can remain a powerful Firebender. Firebender discipline stresses self-restraint and breath control as a means of directing and containing the fire manifested. Poor breath control means dangerously poor control of any fire generated. For this reason, breathing exercises are one of the most critical first steps for beginning Firebenders. Though anger, rage and other intense emotions can amplify the power of Firebending, it can lead to dangerous explosions or wildfires and can also cause any nearby flames to burn out of control.Lack of drive: In order to Firebend properly, one must have "inner fire", his or her drive, without which one's Firebending becomes weak. Lack of defence: The major combat weakness behind the applied art of Firebending is its confrontational nature. Due to its aggressiveness and pursuit of continuous assault, it traditionally lacks basic defensive techniques, which can leave an inexperienced bender considerably vulnerable to enemy counterattacks, though masters can effectively use Firebending for defence. It also consumes a vast amount of energy leaving the bender at a considerable disadvantage in a prolonged battle. A common mark of a Firebending master is the ability to sustain attacks for long periods. AirbendingAirbending is one of the four elemental bending arts, the aerokinetic ability to control and manipulate currents of air. The peaceful Air Nomads utilized this type of bending in their everyday lives.Air is the element of freedom. The Air Nomads detached themselves from worldly problems and concerns, and finding peace and freedom was the key to solve their flaws in life. Airbenders continually sought for spiritual enlightenment, and, as a result, all children born into the Air Nomads were benders. The key to Airbending is flexibility and finding and following the path of least resistance. Airbending is notable for being almost entirely defensive, as well as the most dynamic of the four Bending Arts. Airbenders can overwhelm many opponents at once with large and powerful attacks that could prove fatal; however, due to the pacifist nature of the Air Nomads, such attacks are rarely used.Fighting styleAirbenders never seek a fight and they never seek to strike an opponent directly. Their martial arts feature swift, evasive manoeuvres that evoke the intangibility and explosive power of wind, drawing energy from the centre of the abdomen. Airbending is known for its constant circular movement, which makes it difficult for opponents to attack directly or land a blow. Manoeuvres employ the entire body with smooth coiling and uncoiling movements, utilizing dynamic footwork, open-hand techniques, punches and throws. A common tactic is to manoeuvre behind an opponent and mirror their movements, preventing them from turning to face the practitioner.Unlike other bending disciplines, Airbending is almost entirely a defensive art, similar to its practitioners, and is the most dynamic of all other elements.Airbending AbilitiesAir Manipulation: By using circular, evasive movements, Airbenders build up massive momentum; this build-up of energy is released as massive power. It also allows for wind-based counter-attacks that knock opponent’s off-balance, mimicking the sudden directional shifts of air currents. Attacks vary from simple gusts of wind to miniature Aang using an Air Shield. Tornadoes and cyclones, maintaining the circular theme. Even a simple movement can create an air gust and Airbenders increase the power of their moves by performing larger sweeps and spins, using the momentum of their movement to simulate larger gusts. This is also demonstrated with their use of staves or fans to increase or create precision within the air currentsAir Shield: The most common defensive tactic involves circling enemies, suddenly changing direction when attacked and evading by physical movement rather than bending. However, an Airbender can still deflect as needed by throwing up gusts of air close to their bodies as a shield. This is rarely to stop attacks directly and more often pushes the attack aside and away, conserving energy and allowing them to turn the movement into an attack at the same moment. Since air can affect almost all physical objects, it can also be used to enforce the momentum of thrown objects or manipulate other objects, though requiring a higher degree of precisionAir Barrier: This is a more powerful defensive technique where the entire body is surrounded by a dome of air that deflects attacks from all directionsAir Bullets: An airbender can cause two or more marbles to spin in a circle between his hands. It could be used to shoot small objects, like marbles, at very high speeds, similar to bulletsAir Blast: A more offensive move involving a direct pulse or jet of almost solid wind from the hands or feet. The force of the attack is generated more from the bender's own power rather than assisted by momentum. This direct blast can reach further with greater accuracy and is used to inflict greater damageAir Punch/Kick: Another more offensive move than is typical of Airbending discipline, air punches or air kicks are small, compressed formations of air that can be fired off the fists or feet of an Airbender. This is similar to many Firebending abilities and the air blast, yet in the sense that it involves the firing of compressed or solidified air at an enemy in a non-continuous fashion i.e. the bender does not create a single great stream of airAir Swipe: The air swipe is a dual defensive and offensive technique in which an Airbender conjures a crescent-shaped construct of solidified air capable of deflecting colossal projectiles (such as the catapulted flaming rocks often used by the Fire Navy ships) and sending them off-courseAir Suction: A technique used to bring people or things towards the AirbenderBreath of Wind: Very similar to the standard air jet but created from the mouth and lungs. It requires extremely good breath control to employ effectively. Size and focus is more easily controlled, from narrow jets that can strike targets as small as insects, to large gale force gusts capable of cooling magma into solidified rock.Enhanced Speed: Airbenders enhance their movement in battle; they can run swiftly by decreasing air resistance around them and even sprint across or run up vertical surfaces by generating a wind current behind themselves to propel them forward. When used by a skilled Airbender, this technique can enable the Airbender using it to travel at a speed almost too swift for the naked eye to be able to see properly. A master Airbender can use this technique to briefly run across waterEnhanced Agility: Air movements can also be used as a levitation aid. Airbenders jump high and far by riding on strong gusts of wind and can slow or deflect falls by creating cushions of air. The constant movement required by this art makes Airbenders naturally flexible and agile. Even without bending they can easily manoeuvre around an opponent by ducking, jumping, and side stepping, appearing to flow around their opponents without expending any energy at all, letting the opponent tire themselves out and thus creating exploitable openings. This conservation of energy combined with high stamina gives them an advantage in prolonged combatAir Funnel: Similar to an air vortex but on a smaller scale, airbenders can use this technique as a cannon by creating a small air funnel through which small rock projectiles could be entered through the top and could be fired out of the opposite endAir Bomb: A technique which creates a powerful, outward-moving air current in all directions around the bender. Usually performed after landing on the ground from above, this Airbending form has great concussive force and the capacity to completely blow away anything within its radiusAir Ball: An Airbender can create a compressed ball of air by moving their hands together in a circular motion. This technique has many applications such as levitating small objects or tripping opponentsAir slash: An airbending can cause scratches and cuts on another in defence Multiple Target Attacks: An Airbender can send large, wide-spanning waves of air towards multiple enemies with one long, sweeping motion from an Airbending staff or from the bender's limbsAirbending Master LevelAir Vortex: A spinning funnel of air of various sizes. This can be used to trap and disorient opponents or as a potent defence, since it will deflect and repel any objects and can even throw them back at an opponent. In Avatar State an air vortex can reach winds up to 125 miles per hourAir Spout: Similar to the Waterspout, master Airbenders are able to rotate and control the direction of the Air Spout enough to levitate them off the ground and remain in the air for as long as they wish to or can maintain it.Air shockwaves: By collecting enough wind, an airbender can create waves of air through their hands, able to blast through object, strong enough to smash them to pieces and cause them to crumble Air Wake: By running in a circle and instantly building huge momentum, a master Airbender can shoot a blast of compressed air shaped like the user's body at a target. This move seems to have great concussive forceAir Blades: A more offensive move than is typical of Airbending principle, this involves a focus slicing air current that can cut through stone or timber with relative ease. This is frequently conjured with a staff rather than the body, using the narrow profile of the object to create a more focused and precise air movement. This move could prove fatal if used on an individualMini-Tornado: This is a smaller scaled version of the air vortex which Airbending masters can use as a means of both combat and transport. By encircling themselves in a spiralling air current, masters can travel at high speeds and even ascend near-vertical dropsFlight: In the same way sky bison can fly and stay aloft for extended periods of time, a master Airbender can achieve this same feat by generating and controlling air currents around their bodiesAvatar Level AirbendingAugmented Airbending Moves: While in the Avatar State, all of the previously discussed Airbending moves are generally augmented making them far more powerful in an Avatar than even a bending master. This ability of the Avatar State to increase the power of an Avatar's bending technique is not restricted, of course, to Airbending; in fact an Avatar's power increases with all the bending styles once they have entered the Avatar StateTornadoes/Hurricanes: In addition to very large and powerful air movements, an Avatar level bender can create massive tornadoes and hurricanes at willAir Sphere: An avatar can initially create this to hover in the air for extended periods of time while in the Avatar State. The Avatar flies at high-speeds while inside the air sphere, which also acts as a barrier to protect the bender during impacts, strong enough to withstand a high velocity impact with rockAir Barrier: Similar to the air shield, this powerful defence surrounds the bender in a sphere of spinning air that deflects anything coming in at them, levitate across varied distances and can even disintegrate the ground beneath themStrong Wind: It is possible for the Avatar to unleash extremely powerful winds. An opponent may not apparently take much damage from this sort of attack. However, the same attack did great damage to a nearby rock pillar, weathering through the entire thickness of the pillar in a matter of secondsSpecial techniquesGliding: Although all Airbenders can levitate or extend jumps via Airbending, most if not all Airbenders possess a glider for mid range flight. These hand-crafted portable wood and canvas structures can collapse into a staff for storage and as an aid when bending. In glider form, it is used in conjunction with bending to fly as long as the bender has the strength to maintain the air currents. With stronger winds, multiple people can be carried for short distances. As a normal staff, it can be used as a weapon in battle, to aid in bending, and even as a levitation aid when spun above the head like a helicopter propellerAir Scooter: The Air Scooter is also shown to be capable of levitating in the air for short periods, only 5–10 seconds in a stationary positionCloud Manipulation: Because they are made with air and water, a skilled Airbender or Waterbender can manipulate clouds easily to create various shapes. It has not been revealed if an Airbender can perform this technique without a Waterbender and vice versaAirbender principles regarding fatal moves: Though deemed the most dynamic of the Bending arts, the most controversial aspect of Airbending is its supposed lack of fatal moves, being a more defence-inclined art. This aspect in itself is a reflection of the principles held by the Air Nomads, which preaches the preciousness of all life and avoidance of violence whenever possible. But on the issue of principles, there are instances where an Airbender has resorted to lethal force during a conflict, though it is vital to note that the airbender would attack out of anger, something which Airbenders are told to avoid. An air nomad Avatar would display deeds that were in direct violation of Air Nomad teachings, even though for the greater good. Nevertheless, when applied correctly, Airbending can be as lethal as any other Bending art. Airbending moves such as the air blade and air blast could prove particularly fatal against living creatures seeing as they can cut through stone/timber and break entire rock-columns in half respectively. Although an elderly and gentle person, when confronted with an obvious attempt of genocide to harm or kill all of his or her friends and family, an Airbending is enabled to eliminate enemies before succumbing to fatigue or injury and ultimately, death.Enclosed spaces: Though rarely exhibited, an Airbender would be significantly disadvantaged in an enclosed space, restricting their movement and ability to dodge attacks, but this weakness can be neutralized by creative use of Airbending. Though it is difficult to separate an Airbender from their element, if one was submerged under water or earth, or even chained, their ability to bend could possibly be compromised. Though, with ingenuity an Airbender could likely use a minuscule amount of air in their lungs, similar to a Waterbender's ability to use their own sweat. In many situations, this likely would not be sufficient due to its limited supply.EnergybendingEnergybending is the ability to bend life energy. It predates the four main bending arts, as well as the arrival of the Avatar and the formation of the Four Nations.Before the arrival of the Avatar into the world and the separation of the four elements, people bent the energy within themselves. At some point, they discovered the other four bending arts, and over time knowledge of Energybending was almost completely lost. The capabilities of Energybending are not well understood; what is known is that bending a person's life energy can impart them with knowledge instantly or remove one's bending completely. This bending art is dissimilar to the others because it is so perilous to the user, which is why so few have ever used it.Energybending is an extremely powerful and potentially dangerous technique. If the bender's spirit is even slightly weak (bendable), they will then be infected by the spirit of the one they are bending. As a result, the bender can be corrupted and even killedBending Removal: Energybenders can bend the bending energy of a human, removing their bending.Death: Energybending can remove the life of a person, causing instant and painless death.LightningCertain powerful Firebenders are able to generate and manipulate lightning by separating their energy forces. Lightning, also known as "the cold-blooded fire", is considered the most powerful Firebending technique, and its use is available only to a select few Firebending prodigies and masters. Some experienced Firebenders are unable to lightning bend because they don't possess inner peaceLightning Generation: Lightning generation is the ability to generate and direct lightning. It requires peace of mind and a complete absence of emotionLightning Redirection: After observing the redirecting techniques of Waterbending, to redirect lightning, a firebender must absorb the lightning through one arm, guiding it through the stomach, and out the other armPlantbendingTalented Waterbenders can manipulate plant life. Plantbending has enabled members of the swamp to control and manipulate every form of plant life from the highly water-saturated vines and roots found within the swamp lands to seaweed from the ocean floor - they can even rapidly regenerate the plant mass of the plants they bend, since the cell tissues of a plant are more versatile than the cell tissues of an animal, also explaining why Bloodbending can only be achieved on the nights of the full moonGoing further, a skilled Waterbender is able to separate and completely extract the water from plants for more effective utilization just as they are able to separate the water from mud, sand, and even polluted river systems, etc. In the case of plant life, this process will then leave behind the withered remains of all the affected plant life or even making them collapse in the case of large trees. The degree of skill in manipulating plant life depends on the experience of the bender and whether or not a full moon is present. Simpler and smaller forms of plant life, such as grass, flowers and seaweed, can be bent with relative ease, with or without a full moonPlantbending movesPlant control: The most basic plantbending move, plant control is the ability to control a plant my manipulating the water in the plant.Water removal: Water removal is the ability to remove the water of a plant. Once the water is removed, the plant will wither and die.Poison control: When a plantbender meets a poisonous plant, he or she can remove the poison. The poison can then be used. This is also done to make a plant non-toxic before its use.Plant Monster: A powerful plantbender can have plants wrap around him/her to make him/her a plant monster. This has been done with both vines and seaweed.Plant Regeneration: Powerful plantbenders can make plants regenerate from damage, assuming the damage is not to severe.Avatar level PlantbendingSwamp formation: An avatar can bend plants more effectively than regular plantbenders, able to surround an entire area of land with plantsSeismic sense: An avatar can connect plants together and sense someone or something’s location, much like how an earthbender can use earth to sense movement without seeing BloodbendingSince the human body is roughly 70% water, Bloodbending does not necessarily bend blood, but the fluids in one's body, allowing the user to manipulate a body's muscles to move as they wish or to stop movement completely. This technique is very similar to Plantbending, but instead controls animals and humans instead of plants. Potentially, a Bloodbender could do a number of other things by bending the water in a person's body, such as stop a victim's heart or crush his/her internal organs; pressurize, boil, or cool the water to kill their opponent; or even completely extract the water from one's body, imitating the technique used with plants, though this technique has not been shown. Bloodbending is considered to be quite a sinister art since it forces a benders will over the victim's will. Those who practice the technique open themselves up to homicidal madnessBlood freezing: is when a bloodbender freezes the water inside a human body and causing the person to stop moving instantly, possibly causing hypothermia and death instantly.Blood evaporation: is when a bloodbender evaporates the water into the air and causing the person inability to stand or move.Blood draining: When a bloodbender pulls all the blood out of the body causing all the organs to stop functioning, leaving the victim to die a quick yet agonizing death.Brain Crushing: The Waterbender causes the blood supply in the brain to take in water, essentially pressuring the brain to death. Instantly lethal, I'd say.Blood Sleeping: A bloodbender prevents fluids from getting to the brain, causing the victim to become unconscious. Extended use will kill the victim.Blood Absorb: A bloodbender is able to use Target's Blood as Healing Water.Lava/Magma BendingAvatar-level Firebenders are able to bend lava and magma, although not with the same ease by which Waterbenders bend water. They can even because dormant volcanoes to erupt at will. This ability contrasts sharply with other types of Firebending, as lava and magma are superheated physical substances, rather than a chemical reaction. An ordinary Firebender would be incapable of performing the technique. Some suggest that this kind of bending can only be done by Avatars because it involves a mastery of Earthbending, since lava/magma is molten rock and possibly a good knowledge of Waterbending, as this art would require fluid movements, on top of FirebendingLava Manipulation: Lavabenders can control, move, and shape lava.Ground melting: A lavabender can make the ground under them melt using the lava under it.Lava cooling: A lavabender can bend molten lava and make it become solid once again.Advanced Lavabender movesVolcanic Eruption: An advanced lavabender can make volcanoes erupt by making the magma inside it rise or explode.SandbendingSandbenders use Earthbending in a specialized style, which emphasizes the manipulation of sand. Because sand is sediment which travels in flows, their style resembles Air and Waterbending more than Earthbending. It is displayed that most, if not all, Earthbenders are capable of easily bending sand, but because of the loose shifty nature of sand it is not an easy transition for the average Earthbender. The Sandbenders of the desert are especially proficient with it due to their particular habitatSand control: Sandbenders can control any sand near them.Sand compacting: Sandbenders can compact sand into a hard ball.Sand blast: Sandbenders can hurl sand at high speeds.Sand forming: Sandbenders can form sand into specific shapes and forms.Advanced Sandbending movesSinking: Sandbenders can make people or objects sink in the sand.Earth splitting: Sandbenders can make regular earth fall apart into many individual grains of sand. This can then be bent like normal sand.Sandstorm: Powerful sandbenders can have sand fly around at high speeds to make a sand storm.MudbendingMudbending is a bending form that allows control of mud. It can be done by Waterbending or EarthbendingBasic Mudbending AbilitiesMud control: Mudbenders can control mud.Mud ball: A mudbender can create balls out of mud, and use them offensively.Earth extraction: Earthbending mudbenders can take earth out of mud.Water extraction: Waterbending mudbenders can extract water from mud.MetalbendingMetalbending is a special subset of techniques within Earthbending that allows an Earthbender to ferrokinetically bend processed metals much as they would bend regular earth, Since metal is merely earth that has been purified and refinedMetalbending seems to be restricted to close-range manipulation; maybe in all cases a metalbender might have to be standing close to or in direct contact with the metal they intend to bend. They may be able to deform sheets of metal, and cause it to freely reshape itself the way they would do with earth. Metalbender may not be able to use metal closeby if they are trapped in a cell or restrained. In addition, they may be able to bend golden jewellery, but maybe not all metals can be manipulated by Metalbending, as precious metals like gold naturally contain fewer impuritiesMetalbender are able to crunch metal, much like an earth fissure, crush it and rip it apart, they are able to bust down doors and knock doors off their hinges.The Seismic sense works with metalbending just like earthbending, possibly even with greater clarity as metal would conduct vibrations far better.Metalbenders can make a suit of armour in the same manner as the more traditional Earth Armour technique, though it is worth noting that a sighted Metalbender may have had difficulty doing so as there are no peepholes left the metal armour. While covered in metal armour, they probably achieve a magnetic effect, allowing them to climb and move on walls, this technique may need constant bonding and rebonding if multiple metals are usedThey are also able to manipulate metal plating to pin opponents to walls, floors or ceilings.WoodbendingWoodbending is a form of Plantbending, which in turn is a form of Waterbending. It allows a woodbender to control woodBasic woodbending abilitiesWood control: The most basic ability, wood control is the ability to control wood. This is the basis of all woodbending. More powerful benders can control more at a timeReshaping wood: Woodbenders can reshape wood into different formsWood shield: A wood shield is when a large chunk of reinforced wood is held in front of the woodbender. This is a defensive move, but it can also be used offensively by hurling the wood at an enemy. Firebenders can easily overcome this obstacleWall of Wood: A wall of wood is when large pieces of wood are merged together. This can be used as a defensive technique, or just for construction and/or fabricationTree ripping: A woodbender can tear the bark off of a tree, as bark is woodWood fusing: Woodbenders can fuse lots of wood into one big chunk. It can also work the other way around, taking wood apartLifting Wood: Woodbenders can carry heavy logs with little to no effortWood Forcing: Woodbenders can bend a piece of wood and throw or force itMaster level abilitiesWood spike: A woodbender can form a large spike out of wood. Powerful woodbenders can create spikes as big as trees. The easiest way for a bender to do this is to sharpen the top of a treeWood platform: A powerful woodbender can make a sheet of wood hover in the air. This can be used for transportationBuilding crushing: A very powerful woodbender, or many woodbenders, can crush buildings made of woodWood melting: Powerful woodbenders can make wood turn into sawdustWood Blade: Benders of wood can form wood into a blade. They can keep it from breaking with their bending abilitiesAvatar Level WoodbendingAdvanced Woodbending: Avatars are more powerful benders, and can bend more woodWood Expansion: Avatars are powerful enough woodbenders to expand wood to a larger size, while still keeping the strength of the wood before the expansionGlassbendingGlassbending is a unique art, and a form of earthbending. It is the ability to manipulate glass. It is often used by powerful earthbendersTo perform glassbending, an earthbender must concentrate on the earth in the glass, similar to metalbending, except glass is earthBasic Glassbending abilitiesGlass control: Glassbenders can control glass forms, and manipulate them as they wish. More powerful glassbenders can control more glassGlass shield: Glassbenders can levitate glass, and make it into a form of bullet proof glass. This is a powerful and highly resistant shieldGlass shatter: Glassbenders can make glass shatter at will. It is easiest if they touch the glass, but can do it from a distanceGlass shard: Glassbenders can make a shard of glass, and use it offensivelyMaster level abilitiesGlass creation: Powerful glassbenders can take earth, and turn it into glass. This is done by super heating the earth, and then cooling it just as quicklyGlass spike: Powerful glassbenders can form glass into a deadly spike, and hurl it at their foes. IT is also very heavy, and could even spear though a buildingGlass bullets: Powerful glassbenders can make many small shards of glass, and shoot them like bulletsAvatar level bendingAdvanced Glassbending: Avatars can control much more glass at a timeAmplification/SoundBendingSoundbending is a special subset of techniques within Airbending that allows an Airbender to sonokinetically generate sound waves and manipulate already existing ones as they travel through the air.Sound can pass through anything but it is mostly travels through the air. Therefore, sound is merely air that has been vibrated and sophisticated. A soundbender is able to perceive vibrations in the air around him/her with Sonar Sense, target them, and utilize it to "bend" the sound itself.The key to Soundbending is a combination of flexibility and endurance, finding and following the path of resistance as well as enduring enemies' attacks until the right opportunity to counterattack reveals itself, then striking with unyielding force. Soundbending's strength is its offensive capabilities which, rather than supporting a separate set of defensive methods, are transformed into defences and opposition - offense into defence. Soundbenders can overwhelm many opponents at once with large and powerful attacks that could prove fatal; however due to the pacifist nature of the Air Nomads such attacks are rarely used. Just like Waterbending and Earthbending, Soundbending has a distinct use of offense and defence. Instead of sacrificing defense for more powerful offensive tactics or allowing defense to become offense, Soundbending transforms offense into defense.Basic soundbending abilitiesAmplification: Amplification allows a Soundbender to amplify his or her voice, or to amplify another soundSound Halting: Sound halting is the ability to stop a sound before it reaches someone's earsSound Modification: Sound modification allows a Soundbender to change a sound. There are many ways to do thisVoice Changing: Voice changing allows a Soundbender to change someone's voiceSound Generation: Sound generation allows a Soundbender to make sound out of air. It can be a voice, or any other soundSound change: Sound change allows a Soundbender to change a sound into a different soundSound Control: Sound control allows a Soundbender to keep sounds in a certain area, by not letting them go in any direction. This can be used to make it so only one person can hear a soundDeafness: A Soundbender can make someone deaf by letting sound reach his or her earsSound Blast: A sound blast is a blast of sound with concussive force. Vibration can vibrate objects such as the ground to start earthquakes or make volcanoes erupt or it can vibrate the water to form a tsunamiRadius amplification: detect all sound waves in a 100 mile radiusAtmosphereBending Basic atmospheric bending abilitiesTemperature Bending: creating gusts of cold air or hot air.Vibrational Discharge: creating very powerful gusts of vibration that manifest in the form of intense sound. The more common activity uses in vibrational discharge is communication over vast distances,Gravitational Control: because the Earth is floating in space on the gravitational field the Earth attracts said gravity and binds all life to the shell of the earth, very powerful Earthbenders can separate or remove the earth's control of gravity in a given radius allowing said bender to manipulate gravity in a number of ways, most often for the use of levitation or flying.Eco Bending: otherwise known as the manipulation of plant life and the ecosystem. Users of this technique can create plant life in virtually any area including in the middle of the desert or in the middle of the sea.CrystalbendingMindbendingChemicalbending
