Avatar's Advanced Bending Techniques Explained!

  • Published on:  6/12/2019
  • You asked for it, you got it, Avatar Fans. What’s up, guys! I’m Kris Carr and today we’re going in-depth on all the sub-bending seen in the world of Avatar. When we’re talking about sub bending, we’re talking about the specialized bending techniques that exist within each of the four bending arts; water, earth, fire, and air. These sub-skills can usually only be accessed by skilled benders, and often requires the bender to have some sort of deeper understanding of their bending form, as opposed to just sheer raw power. We’ve talked in other videos how over time, certain subsets seem to be more easily accessed by a greater number of benders, such as metal and lightning bending, while others, like Bloodbending, remain accessible by a select few. We’ll be covering all the bending the shows clue us into, regardless of mastery level.#thelastairbender#avatar#bending Support us on Patreon ►► https://bit.ly/2CYJmKISubscribe For More NerdWire! ►► https://bit.ly/2MUgI0iBecome a NerdWire YouTube Member ►► https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7vv...Follow @NerdWireHQ on Twitter ►► https://bit.ly/2XagDfkCheck out our site: http://www.obsev.comLike us on Facebook: https://bit.ly/2tkWhCdFind us on Instagram: https://bit.ly/2TJ0gnIWatch us on ROKU: https://channelstore.roku.com/details...TopBuzz: https://www.topbuzz.com/user/64881988...

    There are a lot of similarities between Avatar: The Last Airbender and Game of Thrones when you start to break them both down. However, the endings of the two popular fantasy series couldn’t be more different. We decided to explore what lessons GoT could have taken from A:TLA in our video here: https://www.102tube.com/video/wvZMZeTO4wQ/video.html

    One thing that gets glossed over a lot :
    Fire Lord Sozin showed the ability to siphon away heat and send it into the air. (S3:E6-The Avatar and the Fire Lord). A fire bender can possibly freeze an area by redistributing heat energy.

    I think lighting became more common because the fire nation was hoarding the knowledge and techniques so no one could learn.

    I always thought that lava bending was possible because the user had a fire bender in their lineage, as like a recessive gene or something. Similarly, i thought combustion bending was possible because the practitioner had an air bending recessive gene. Those two bending styles seem to be more of a combination of two forms as opposed to something like metal bending which seems to be a concentration of the earth form. I know the theory doesn't hold up when talking about spirit projection or lightning, but still, that's what i thought.

    Lavabending is just the earth version of ice/mist bending, it only harder because changing the state of matter in earth is much harder then in water.

    Water - ice - gas- blood - plant -healing
    Fire - lightning - combustion - plasma - radiation - chi manipulation
    Earth - metal - lava - sand - crystal - seismic sense
    Air - sound - gravity - vibration - weather - flying

    Yeah, when Iroh said he learned lightning redirection by observing waterbenders. I think that element bending crossovers are totally a thing. Earth and Water benders can bend mud because there is dirt and moisture in it. Bend one half of it, and you can bend it all.
    The same thing goes for Lava Bending. Fire benders and Earth benders can be Lava Benders because you are moving firey rocks.
    After all. Guru Pathik once said, "The greatest illusion of this world is the illusion of separation. Things you think are separate and different are actually one and the same."

    I love how weirdly disjointed subsets of air are compared to the others.
    Lava is liquid earth and metal has earth in it so that makes sense
    Combustion is just consentrated fire, and since fire itself is technically not actual matter, but a result ON matter from heat then plasma can also be controlled so lightning makes sense
    Blood and plants have water in them, and ice is just solid water
    (Although the healing stuff is iffy)
    But air is all like "Oh you can fly without using actual airbending and yiu can also send out your fuckin soul!"
