What Types of Bending Are There? 

If you watch through all Avatar series, you can find out pretty much everything there is to know about the “magic “system of the world. Basically, there are four bending art types:
  • air
  • water
  • earth
  • fire
Plus, there is one additional type - energy. We’ll talk about that later in the Avatar quiz.


This element has proven to be a destructive force in capable hands. Stereotypically, wind mages are among the strongest, alike fire mages. In the Avatar world, this is an element of freedom. It was utilized to create a free and peaceful life initially. Airbenders used the art in everyday life and preached enlightenment. Thus, all the children in the tribe were born benders. Unfortunately, we know what’s happened to Aang’s tribe - genocide. Though airbending is mainly a defensive art, the benders can overpower an enemy with massive power. 


I’ve already mentioned that fire mages are noted for their strength in most universes. In this world, fire benders live up to the stereotype and wield a powerful type of art. A crucial part of its powerful nature is that this is the only bending type where people can generate the element themselves. Benders use them to create fire and manipulate the existing flames. It’s a highly offensive type of bending with almost no offensive moves. Contrary to popular opinion, firebending doesn’t require hatred to fuel it. 


This is the most fluid and gracious type of bending. Most benders don’t use sharp edges and ragged, uneven gestures. They are all about flawless implementation. Waterbending is a well-balanced type that can be both defensive and offensive at the same time. Only a bender controls its nature. Waterbenders can also master one of the most dangerous forms of bending - blood bending. It allows them to control a human fully. However, this is a rare skill, and only the most experienced waterbenders can master it. 


Earthbending is an underestimated technique. Yes, it’s a strong connection to neutral jing - a complex state of a myriad of possibilities makes earthbending less dynamic. However, it doesn’t mean the art is weak. Given the right moment, earthbenders can easily overpower any enemy with a powerful technique. 


Energybending was one rare and additional type that was once used by the most powerful Avatars. Unfortunately, it’s a highly powerful and dangerous technique that can even destroy the practitioner. You can also complete this Spirit Animal quiz to uncover your true self.
