This is why i think Avatar should be R rated
If you wanted to take it a step further, you could argue that water benders could take out all the fluid from someones body, turning them into a mummified husk
and a highly skilled metal bender could control the iron in another person’s blood, kinda like what Magneto does in X-Men a lot
What a great time to be anaemic.

"on a wave of blood"
but yes, let us continue with this gore fest!
Is there possibly a way that firebenders or airbenders could raise the body temperature of an individual to the point where your burning/melting from the inside out?
or what about earthbenders being able to break bones since bones are made up of various metals
of course along with non-metals but that’s beside the point?
The VMAs are definitely Britney’s show.
Even when she’s not there.

I think what makes this scene especially emotional for fans is that we are witnessing even parent’s nightmare; losing a child. Tonraq is portrayed as a strong man and a leader, but he is also a father. He is the father of the Avatar, and we’ve seen in the past seasons that he’s always worried about his daughter’s safety. He is well aware of the responsibilities she has to endure as well as the dangers. In this moment, this is everything that he has ever feared. Even though they defeated Zaheer, his daughter did not make it out all right.
In the moments that Korra doesn’t respond to him, we as the audience can picture all the years Tonraq has had raising Korra. We can imagine her entire life flash before us and we feel the weight of the loss Tonraq is experiencing watching his daughter, his baby girl, slip away from him.
He isn’t watching The Avatar die. He is watching his child die.
