Iroh showed exceptional agility throughout the series, and all before he got in much better shape in the prison(which he broke out of single handed without firebending) before the finale. I don't think Ozai has more agility or power, considering Iroh blasting the hole in Bai Sing Se was more powerful than anything Ozai performed on his fight with Aang. I also interpreted what Iroh said differently than how some others took it. I took it to mean that he may not have been willing to kill his brother in a fight and would probably be too hesitant if he ever did fight him.

I'm going with Iroh and Zuko for the win, due to Azula being crazy. If she wasn't I'd probably give it to her and Ozai.

@bigcimmerian: I didn't ignore everything, I commented on what I found relevant and was able to comment on. Hagrid's been shown putting animals much bigger than him(and with claws) in their place. So I don't believe something with claws would automatically pose a serious threat to him, especially considering the fact that he's dealt with far more powerful animals.

But this bear has human level intelligence, and I doubt that Hagrid used his strength to put Fluffy in his place.

He most like did, Hagrid seemed to have a great deal of respect from very powerful beast in the HP world.

Even here(excuse the dub LOL, but it's the best quality one I could find), Hagrid does not stand down when Buckbeak attacks Malfoy. It's strongly indicated that Hagrid can exercise force if necessary on these creatures.

@bigcimmerian: giants uproot trees for fun in this series, bears can't do that. Hagrid has tanked shots from giants, giant spiders and wizards.

@leo-343: it isn't really a fight IMO, Hagrid is too far above a bear.

Bears anatomy prevent's them from uprooting trees. But they can move boulders which are 1+ tons with ease to get food. It's not only Bear's size and physicals that are problem. His fangs and claws are the biggest problem. If the bear has average human inteligence he will fight smart.

thissssss!

Does Hagrid have any slashing/stabbing resistance feats? So he can tank a punch from a giant but has he ever resisted cutting or stabs?

With the sort of strength Hagrid has, he could easily snap the poor bears arms and break its neck.

@bigcimmerian: How did he snap the gun though? Did he twist it into a knot like Hagrid until it snapped or did he break it with his leg or something?

This is what I mean by easily and no effort at all.

The train sounds plausible, but it doesn't compare to what Hagrid did with the pine tree. Which was casually pulling it through the snow all the way into the school(not to mention he must of done it for all the trees in the school main hall).

You guys are funny, Polar Bear is going to shred him into pieces. They can be 10-12 feet tall, and largest recorded was 2000 lbs with razor sharp 5 inches claws. Try fighting that when you are not agile and quick lol.

That's around Hagrid's height. Add superstrength to that and it's a stomp. IIRC, he easily twisted Uncle Vernon's gun into a knot and was shown pulling a giant pine tree(easily 2+ tons) all on his own.

Batman did the same with machine gun and he pulled one train wagon with his legs which was 2500 lbs. And he's not superhuman. Bears are superhuman.

Did he do this easily(and I'm not buying the machine gun)? And Hagrid IS superhuman. He's half giant and also has enhanced durability.

Zuko is better than crazy azula as proven. Ozai's feats as a firebender looked far better than iroh's imo, but he gets killed by redirected lightening, which is ic for him to spam. So team 1 more often than not.

Iroh really didn't get to fight during the comet though, but from what was shown, he was easily on Ozai's level after shown being capable of blowing a giant hole in the impenetrable Bai Sing Se wall and blocking several comet amped up fire blast. We don't know how powerful Ozai was without comet, but Iroh was one of the most powerful firebender in the series.

Kyoshi is ok.

Roku&Yangchen were the best side avatars

After reading the Rift 1 & 2, I think Yangchen is definitely up there with them now. I would probably place her above Kyoshi at this point, but I thought she was a really cool Avatar after finding out she created and trained the Dai Li, being the Avatar that lived the longest(230 IIRC) and easily moving that island with little effort and turning it into her own sanctuary. I also thought her style with the fans were a nice touch.

@thunderbolt30: Happy to have been of service. :)

@thunderbolt30: According to the last episode, the tiny Earth King ruler was too stubborn to move out of the way(he was likely using his earth bending to withstand her winds). The wind was most likely used to push all of the people back(considering the ground would become unstable), and not technically used to push or move the land mass at all.

and that clip was amazing. Kyoshi was my second favorite(Roku being my top favorite).
