The Best Characters On 'The Legend of Korra'

August 18, 2020 2.4k votes 182 voters 1.1k views33 items

Following in the footsteps of Avatar: The Last Airbender was no easy task, but the best The Legend of Korra characters prove there were still more exciting stories to tell within this universe. This time, the legendary Avatar is a girl named Korra, who has to face spiritual and political unrest in an increasingly modernized world. 

Korra is Aang's successor, but she's different in a lot of ways from the previous Avatar. She's headstrong and rebellious, but she has to transform from a warrior to more of a spiritual leader. And just like The Last Airbender, this Avatar has plenty of friends and foes throughout the series. Characters like Amon are a very different kind of antagonist than Zuko. As the mysterious yet charismatic leader of the Equalists, he seeks to bring about an anti-bending revolution.
