On the surface, Korra is fierce, independent, tomboyish, and pugnacious. One only has to dig a little deeper to realise that, beneath her most prominent character traits, she possesses a strong loyalty towards her comrades and duty as Avatar and an admirable compassion seen in moments when she expresses love, such as towards pro-bending or Naga. Her offensive battle style means that she is always quick to initiate or rise to a challenge and she is extremely quick witted and impulsive, especially in heated situations. Unfortunately, as an 'Avatar-in-training', she lacks perception towards the damage her bending is capable of, and her rash decisions often result in her accidentally insulting others.
True to Korra's character, Lin has once said to Tenzin, "Hard to believe your sweet tempered father was reincarnated into that girl". Her personality is, in many ways, the opposite of the previous Avatar's; Aang was a peaceful, diffident, nomadic airbender, whereas Korra is tough, impatient, headstrong, sarcastic, and assertive. However, like Aang, she also has a good sense of humor and enthusiasm, and a vulnerable teenage charm.
