1.) Water Bending.

You must be registered for see images


At its pinnacle, one could use blood bending to pressurize the blood vessels in their opponents brain causing an aneurysm to develop and rupture, killing them in seconds. In addition, the blood bender can freeze the blood in the brains blood vessels into senbons and pierce through the cerebellum and cerebral cortex causing near instant death.


2.) Earth Bending.

You must be registered for see images


At its pinnacle, a metal bender can form senbons from the iron in their opponents blood and instantly kill them like the blood bender does. Alternatively, they could also bury their victim 100's of meters into the ground and
crush them with tonnes of force from the rocks.


3.) Air Bending.

You must be registered for see images


An air bending master would be able to evacuate the space around their victims nose and mouth, leaving it absent of oxygen, suffocating them in minutes.


4.) Fire Bending.


You must be registered for see images


At its pinnacle, a lightning bender can strike your heart at a very high voltage and current, killing you in seconds.
Only reason this is last is because as the others are completely unavoidable, this attack can be redirected.



Any other cool ways to use bending to obliterate your oppenets?
And if you dont' agree with this list, provide your own and justify with attack examples.

Well you missed a few things.

Air bending you limited to only suffocation and asphyxiation when it can not only do that but also bend the air in your lungs and kill you from that way you made it about creating a vacuum absent of space around the opponents head and also the pinnacle of air bending is " emptying and becoming wind " that means to be able to fly and that alone puts air bending at the top along with its ability to allow air benders greater reflexes dues to sensing air current changes air bending is number 1...

dude you could disperse the air like in the imaage

Im talking lethality of usage. Just the that air bender could shove pressurized air into your ear canals until your head explodes under pressure.

Air bending only seems like number 1 to most because Aang was an air bender and the star of the show. Blood bending is definitely the strongest bending, I completely forgot it was an aspect of water bending til' you mentioned that. I agree with your list, blood/water #1, Earth#2 because everything in a civilization is made from the Earth to some degree so an Earth bender could take out whole villages if they were as good as Toph of course. Air 3rd for the many varied ways to use it and Fire last by process of elimination.

And most of my list considers what could technically be performed by the benders. obv this would make benders way to op but it certainly is possible.

This pretty much goes against the entire philosophy of the Avatar world, namely that all the elements are in balance with each other. It's quite redundant you make a ranking of the bending arts based upon what you think would be the pinnacle of the element while in reality pretty much all four of them could kill you in an instant if you start thinking about the most extreme case scenarios. Your ranking is not based on which one is the most powerful, but on how far you personally went with each element. For waterbending you go all the way to being able to mess with the blood vessels in someone's brain despite that the series never went so far, while for firebending you stuck completely to what we have seen. Some firebenders have shown to be able to control warm temperatures, so going further on that a firebender could potentially increase the body temperature of a person and if your body gets hotter even by a few degrees, it means instant death. Or what about the electrical impulses that run throughout your entire body and make it so you can actually move? Same with airbending. You only talk about possible suffocation, while with all the oxygen in your lungs and body an airbender could blow up your heart from inside your body by making the air expand.

It would more accurate to say that this is a ranking of which element can cause the most brutal death rather than which element is the most powerful as I don't see how having a frozen brain would be objectively stronger than having an exploding heart.

they're supposed to be equal but based off of what was shown waterbending takes the cake. Bloodbenders can take your bending away, not to mention bloodbending itself. Too hax.
