0:01 - 0:02 Water...
0:03 - 0:04 Earth...
0:05 - 0:07 Fire...
0:07 - 0:09 Air.
0:10 - 0:14 Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony.
0:14 - 0:17 Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.
0:18 - 0:21 Only the Avatar, master of all four elements,
0:21 - 0:22 could stop them.
0:22 - 0:24 But when the world needed him most,
0:24 - 0:25 he vanished.
0:26 - 0:27 100 years passed,
0:27 - 0:29 and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar―
0:30 - 0:31 An airbender named Aang.
0:31 - 0:33 And although his airbending skills are great,
0:33 - 0:36 He has a lot to learn before he's ready to save anyone.
0:36 - 0:37 Oof!
0:37 - 0:40 But I believe Aang can save the world.
0:49 - 0:50 We need to find King Bumi
0:50 - 0:52 so Aang can learn earthbending somewhere safe.
0:52 - 0:54 Sounds like you're headed to Omashu.
0:55 - 0:59 I present to you the Earth Kingdom city of Om― Oh, no.
1:00 - 1:03 I guess I need to find someone else to teach me earthbending.
1:03 - 1:07 You need to find someone who waits and listens before striking.
1:08 - 1:11 In the swamp, we see visions of people we've lost,
1:11 - 1:13 people we loved.
1:13 - 1:14 But what about my vision?
1:15 - 1:16 It was someone I had never met.
1:26 - 1:30 It's pricey, but I really do like it.
1:30 - 1:33 Then you should get it. You deserve something nice.
1:33 - 1:34 I do, don't I?
1:35 - 1:38 But no. It's too expensive. I shouldn't.
1:38 - 1:39 All right. Then don't.
1:44 - 1:45 You know what? I'm gonna get it.
1:47 - 1:48 Psst, psst.
1:48 - 1:50 Hey, you kids like earthbending?
1:50 - 1:51 You like throwing rocks?
1:52 - 1:55 Then check out Master Yu's earthbending academy.
1:58 - 2:00 Look. There's a coupon on the back.
2:00 - 2:01 The first lesson is free.
2:02 - 2:04 Who knows? This Master Yu could be
2:04 - 2:06 the earthbending teacher you've been looking for.
2:17 - 2:18 Take your stances.
2:19 - 2:23 Now strike as if you're punching through your opponent's head.
2:25 - 2:26 Hyah!
2:28 - 2:31 So are you ready to commit to more lessons?
2:31 - 2:33 If you pay for the whole year in advance,
2:33 - 2:36 I'll bump you up to the next belt.
2:39 - 2:41 Eh, he's not the one.
2:42 - 2:44 I think the Boulder is gonna win back the belt
2:44 - 2:45 at Earth Rumble 6.
2:45 - 2:47 He's gonna have to fight his way through
2:47 - 2:50 the best earthbenders in the world to even get a shot at the champ.
2:51 - 2:54 Excuse me. But where is this earthbending tournament exactly?
2:54 - 2:55 It's on the island of Noneoya―
2:55 - 2:57 None o' ya business.
2:57 - 2:58 Ha ha! Ha ha!
2:59 - 3:01 Ha ha!
3:01 - 3:04 Oh, I got to remember that one.
3:04 - 3:05 I'll take care of this.
3:06 - 3:08 Hey, strong guys, wait up.
3:10 - 3:13 What was I thinking? I don't need a new bag.
3:13 - 3:16 Why'd you let me buy this?
3:19 - 3:21 You ready to find an earthbending teacher,
3:21 - 3:24 because we're going to Earth Rumble 6.
3:24 - 3:26 How did you get them to tell you?
3:26 - 3:28 Oh, a girl has her ways.
3:36 - 3:40 Hey, front row seats. I wonder why no one else is sitting here.
3:41 - 3:42 I guess that's why.
3:50 - 3:53 Welcome to Earth Rumble 6.
3:53 - 3:56 I am your host, Xin Fu.
3:56 - 3:59 This is just gonna be a bunch of guys
3:59 - 4:01 chucking rocks at each other, isn't it?
4:01 - 4:02 That's what I paid for.
4:03 - 4:05 The rules are simple.
4:05 - 4:07 Just knock the other guy out of the ring,
4:07 - 4:08 and you win.
4:12 - 4:18 Round one― The Boulder versus the Big Bad Hippo!
4:20 - 4:25 Listen up, Hippo. You may be big, but you ain't bad.
4:25 - 4:29 The Boulder's gonna win this in a landslide.
4:29 - 4:32 Hippo mad!
4:35 - 4:37 Hyah!
4:44 - 4:46 Unbelievable, ladies and gentlemen.
4:46 - 4:48 The Hippo is rocking the Boulder.
5:03 - 5:04 The Boulder wins.
5:06 - 5:07 How about the Boulder?
5:07 - 5:09 He's got some good moves.
5:09 - 5:12 I don't know. Bumi said I need a teacher who listens to the earth.
5:13 - 5:15 He's just listening to his big muscles.
5:15 - 5:16 What do you think, Sokka?
5:16 - 5:18 Ha ha! Whoo!
5:18 - 5:25 Next match, the Boulder versus Fire Nation Man.
5:28 - 5:30 Boo! Boo!
5:31 - 5:32 Please do rise
5:32 - 5:35 for Fire Nation national anthem.
5:35 - 5:40 Fire lord, my flame burns for thee
5:42 - 5:45 Go back to the Fire Nation.
5:50 - 5:52 No. No, please!
5:55 - 5:57 Aah!
5:59 - 6:01 Yeah! Whoo!
6:01 - 6:04 The Boulder knows how to put the hurt in the dirt.
6:04 - 6:06 Yeah! Whoo!
6:25 - 6:29 Now the moment you've all been waiting for―
6:29 - 6:35 The Boulder versus your champion― The Blind Bandit.
6:40 - 6:42 She can't really be blind.
6:42 - 6:44 It's just part of her character, right?
6:44 - 6:45 I think she is.
6:45 - 6:46 I think she is...
6:46 - 6:47 Going down!
6:50 - 6:52 The Boulder feels conflicted
6:52 - 6:55 about fighting a young blind girl.
6:55 - 6:58 Sounds to me like you're scared, Boulder.
6:59 - 7:02 The Boulder's over his conflicted feelings,
7:02 - 7:06 and now he's ready to bury you in a rock-alanche.
7:06 - 7:09 Whenever you're ready, the Pebble.
7:09 - 7:11 Ha ha ha!
7:14 - 7:15 Ha ha ha!
7:18 - 7:19 It's on.
7:45 - 7:46 Whoa!
7:47 - 7:48 Ooh.
7:48 - 7:50 Ooh!
7:56 - 8:01 Your winner, and still the champion, the Blind Bandit.
8:01 - 8:04 No!
8:05 - 8:06 How did she do that?
8:07 - 8:09 She waited and listened.
8:12 - 8:14 To make things a little more interesting,
8:14 - 8:17 I'm offering up this sack of gold pieces
8:17 - 8:22 to anyone who can defeat the Blind Bandit.
8:22 - 8:25 What? No one dares to face her?
8:26 - 8:27 I will.
8:31 - 8:34 Go, Aang! Avenge the Boulder!
8:34 - 8:37 Do people really want to see two little girls
8:37 - 8:38 fighting out here?
8:38 - 8:40 Ooh.
8:41 - 8:42 I don't really want to fight you.
8:42 - 8:44 I want to talk to you.
8:44 - 8:46 Boo! No talking!
8:46 - 8:47 Don't boo at him.
8:56 - 8:58 Somebody's a little light on his feet.
8:58 - 9:01 What's your fighting name, the Fancy Dancer?
9:04 - 9:06 Where'd you go?
9:06 - 9:08 Please, wait.
9:08 - 9:09 There you are.
9:11 - 9:12 Aah!
9:21 - 9:23 Please listen!
9:23 - 9:24 I need an earthbending teacher,
9:24 - 9:26 and I think it's supposed to be you.
9:26 - 9:28 Whoever you are, just leave me alone.
9:31 - 9:32 Wait!
9:40 - 9:41 Way to go, champ.
9:49 - 9:50 I got to admit,
9:50 - 9:52 now I'm really glad I bought this bag.
9:52 - 9:55 It matches the belt perfectly.
9:55 - 9:57 That is a big relief.
9:57 - 9:58 If we want to find the Blind Bandit,
9:58 - 10:01 The earthbending academy is a good place to start.
10:05 - 10:07 Oh, great. You again.
10:08 - 10:09 Aah! Aah!
10:09 - 10:11 Yeah. I didn't think so.
10:11 - 10:12 Nicely done.
10:12 - 10:15 Hey, you're the kid who beat the Blind Bandit.
10:15 - 10:17 We need to talk to her.
10:17 - 10:18 Do you guys know where she lives?
10:18 - 10:20 The Blind Bandit's a mystery.
10:20 - 10:23 She shows up to fight, then disappears.
10:24 - 10:26 Let me handle this.
10:26 - 10:28 You're not telling us everything.
10:28 - 10:30 No, no. I swear it's true.
10:30 - 10:32 No one knows where she goes or who she really is.
10:33 - 10:35 That's because we're asking about the wrong person.
10:35 - 10:38 In my vision, I saw a girl in a white dress
10:38 - 10:40 with a pet flying boar.
10:40 - 10:41 Know anybody like that?
10:41 - 10:45 Well, a flying boar is the symbol of the Beifong family.
10:45 - 10:46 They're the richest people in town,
10:46 - 10:48 Probably the whole world.
10:48 - 10:50 Yeah, but they don't have a daughter.
10:50 - 10:53 A flying boar is good enough for me. Let's check it out.
10:53 - 10:55 Yeah. You better leave.
10:55 - 10:58 Hey. I got my eye on you.
10:59 - 11:00 Water tribe.
11:01 - 11:03 I'm telling you,
11:03 - 11:05 the Boulder was standing right there.
11:05 - 11:08 I saw the kid strike, but there was no earthbending.
11:08 - 11:10 Nothing made contact.
11:10 - 11:12 The Blind Bandit just fell out of the ring.
11:13 - 11:14 She must have took a dive
11:14 - 11:16 and split the money with the kid.
11:21 - 11:23 Nobody cheats Xin Fu.
11:30 - 11:32 That's the flying boar from my vision. Come on.
11:48 - 11:50 What are you doing here, twinkle toes?
11:50 - 11:52 How did you know it was me?
11:52 - 11:55 Don't answer to twinkle toes. It's not manly.
11:55 - 11:57 You're the one whose bag matches his belt.
11:57 - 11:59 How did you find me?
11:59 - 12:01 Well, a crazy king told me I had to find
12:01 - 12:03 the earthbender who listens to the earth.
12:03 - 12:05 And then I had a vision in a magic swamp, and―
12:05 - 12:07 What Aang is trying to say
12:07 - 12:10 is he's the Avatar, and if he doesn't master earthbending soon,
12:10 - 12:12 he won't be able to defeat the Fire Lord.
12:13 - 12:16 Not my problem. Now get out of here
12:16 - 12:17 or I'll call the guards.
12:17 - 12:20 Look, we all have to do our part to win this war.
12:20 - 12:22 And yours is to teach Aang earthbending.
12:23 - 12:25 Guards! Guards, help!
12:28 - 12:30 Toph, what happened?
12:30 - 12:34 I thought I heard someone. I got scared.
12:34 - 12:37 You know your father doesn't want you wandering the grounds
12:37 - 12:39 without supervision, Toph.
12:47 - 12:48 I'm pleased to hear
12:48 - 12:51 that Toph's private lessons are going well,
12:51 - 12:54 but I want to be sure she's not trying anything too dangerous.
12:55 - 12:56 Absolutely not.
12:56 - 12:59 I'm keeping her at the beginner's level―
12:59 - 13:02 Basic forms and breathing exercises only.
13:02 - 13:03 Very good.
13:04 - 13:07 Excuse me, sir, but you have a visitor.
13:08 - 13:09 Who thinks they are so important
13:10 - 13:12 they can just come to my home unannounced?
13:12 - 13:14 Uh, the Avatar, sir.
13:26 - 13:28 Blow on it. It's too hot for her.
13:28 - 13:29 Allow me.
13:33 - 13:34 Oh, my.
13:34 - 13:38 Avatar Aang, it's an honor to have you visit us.
13:38 - 13:42 In your opinion, how much longer do you think the war will last?
13:42 - 13:45 I'd like to defeat the Fire Lord by the end of summer,
13:46 - 13:47 but I can't do that
13:47 - 13:50 without finding an earthbending teacher first.
13:50 - 13:54 Well, Master Yu is the finest teacher in the land.
13:54 - 13:56 He's been teaching Toph since she was little.
13:56 - 13:58 Then she must be a great earthbender,
13:59 - 14:02 Probably good enough to teach someone else. Ow!
14:05 - 14:07 Toph is still learning the basics.
14:08 - 14:11 Yes. And, sadly, because of her blindness,
14:11 - 14:13 I don't think she will ever become a true master.
14:15 - 14:17 Oh, I'm sure she's better than you think she is.
14:18 - 14:19 Uh!
14:34 - 14:36 What's your problem?
14:36 - 14:37 What's your problem?
14:40 - 14:43 Well, shall we move to the living room
14:43 - 14:45 for dessert, then?
14:48 - 14:49 Good night, buddy.
14:52 - 14:53 Hyah!
14:53 - 14:56 Relax. Look, I'm sorry about dinner.
14:56 - 14:58 Let's call it a truce, ok?
15:01 - 15:04 Even though I was born blind, I've never had a problem seeing.
15:06 - 15:07 I see with earthbending.
15:08 - 15:10 It's kind of like seeing with my feet.
15:11 - 15:13 I feel the vibrations in the earth,
15:13 - 15:15 and I can see where everything is―
15:16 - 15:20 You, that tree, even those ants.
15:23 - 15:25 That's amazing.
15:25 - 15:27 My parents don't understand.
15:28 - 15:30 They've always treated me like I was helpless.
15:30 - 15:33 Is that why you became the Blind Bandit?
15:33 - 15:34 Yeah.
15:34 - 15:37 Then why stay here where you're not happy?
15:37 - 15:38 They're my parents.
15:38 - 15:40 Where else am I supposed to go?
15:42 - 15:43 You could come with us.
15:43 - 15:46 Yeah. You guys get to go wherever you want.
15:46 - 15:50 No one telling you what to do― That's the life.
15:50 - 15:52 It's just not my life.
15:55 - 15:57 We're being ambushed.
16:14 - 16:17 I think you kids owe me some money.
16:24 - 16:26 Whoever took Aang and Toph left this.
16:27 - 16:29 "If you want to see your daughter again,
16:29 - 16:31 bring 500 gold pieces to the arena."
16:31 - 16:34 It's signed "Xin Fu and the Boulder."
16:34 - 16:35 I can't believe it.
16:36 - 16:38 I have the Boulder's autograph!
16:40 - 16:43 Master Yu, I need you to help me get my daughter back.
16:43 - 16:44 We're going with you.
16:45 - 16:47 Poor Toph!
16:47 - 16:48 She must be so scared.
16:49 - 16:51 You think you're so tough, why don't you come up here
16:51 - 16:53 so I can smack that grin off your face?
16:54 - 16:55 I'm not smiling.
16:55 - 16:57 Toph!
16:58 - 17:00 Here's your money. Now, let them go.
17:11 - 17:12 What about Aang?
17:12 - 17:16 I think the Fire Nation will pay a hefty price for the Avatar.
17:16 - 17:19 Now get out of my ring.
17:35 - 17:37 Go. I'll be ok.
17:40 - 17:44 Toph, there's too many of them. We need an earthbender.
17:44 - 17:45 We need you.
17:45 - 17:47 My daughter is blind.
17:47 - 17:51 She is blind and tiny and helpless and fragile.
17:51 - 17:53 She cannot help you.
17:53 - 17:55 Yes, I can.
18:02 - 18:03 Let him go.
18:04 - 18:06 I beat you all before, and I'll do it again.
18:07 - 18:09 The Boulder takes issue with that comment.
18:12 - 18:14 Wait.
18:19 - 18:21 They're mine.
19:07 - 19:08 Ugh.
19:09 - 19:10 Hit it harder!
19:10 - 19:11 I'm trying.
19:45 - 19:47 Aah!
20:13 - 20:16 I never knew. Your daughter's amazing.
21:08 - 21:13 She's the greatest earthbender I've ever seen.
21:14 - 21:16 Dad, I know it's probably hard
21:17 - 21:18 for you to see me this way,
21:18 - 21:20 but the obedient little helpless blind girl
21:20 - 21:22 that you think I am just isn't me.
21:23 - 21:24 I love fighting.
21:25 - 21:26 I love being an earthbender.
21:27 - 21:29 And I'm really, really good at it.
21:30 - 21:32 I know I've kept my life secret from you,
21:33 - 21:35 but you were keeping me secret from the whole world.
21:35 - 21:37 You were doing it to protect me.
21:38 - 21:40 But I'm 12 years old, and I've never had a real friend.
21:42 - 21:44 So now that you see who I really am,
21:44 - 21:47 I hope it doesn't change the way you feel about me.
21:47 - 21:50 Of course it doesn't change the way I feel about you, Toph.
It's made me realize something.
21:53 - 21:54 It has?
21:54 - 21:58 Yes. I've let you have far too much freedom.
21:58 - 22:00 From now on, you will be cared for and guarded
22:00 - 22:02 24 hours a day.
22:02 - 22:03 But, Dad―
22:03 - 22:06 MRS. BEIFONG: We are doing this for your own good, Toph.
22:06 - 22:09 MR. BEIFONG: Please escort the Avatar and his friends out.
22:09 - 22:12 They are no longer welcome here.
22:12 - 22:14 I'm sorry, Toph.
22:14 - 22:17 I'm sorry, too. Good-bye, Aang.
22:22 - 22:24 Don't worry. We'll find you a teacher.
22:25 - 22:28 There are plenty of amazing earthbenders out there.
22:28 - 22:29 Not like her.
22:39 - 22:41 Toph, what are you doing here?
22:41 - 22:43 My dad changed his mind.
22:43 - 22:46 He said I was free to travel the world.
22:47 - 22:49 Well, we'd better get out of here
22:49 - 22:51 before your dad changes his mind again.
22:51 - 22:53 Good idea.
22:53 - 22:55 You're gonna be a great teacher, Toph.
22:55 - 22:58 Speaking of which, I want to show you something.
22:58 - 22:59 Ok.
23:00 - 23:01 Aah!
23:02 - 23:03 Now we're even.
23:03 - 23:05 Um, I'll take the belt back.
23:08 - 23:09 Ow!
23:10 - 23:11 Sorry.
23:13 - 23:15 MR. BEIFONG: I know you two are very different,
23:15 - 23:18 but I believe you have a common interest.
23:23 - 23:25 The Avatar has kidnapped my daughter.
23:25 - 23:30 I want you to do whatever it takes to bring her home.
