    While I love Zuko, he unfortunately suffers from never getting a power up during the whole of Avatar, cause all that development went into you know... being a better more complete person

      @MrGemHunter I guess what i meant with the Dragon training was the fluidity he got after that. His style of firebending evolved due to the influences of the other bending disciplines. But yeah it's less of a boost compared to lightning redirection.

    • MrGemHunter
      MrGemHunter 3 months ago +1

      @Jo Da Dragon Training was just to get back to his per-reformation levels, like getting absolved after falling for a paladin. Lightning redirection is genuinely something he learned tho fair point

      @Sydney Carton yeah all that sounds good but with azula using her fire to move around. dabi would burn himself to a crisp before killing azula. He's a ticking time bomb the more fire he uses the worse his condition gets. So he's got azula burning him and him burning himself. even if he goes all out if she gets away he's only crippling himself. We've only seen him push past his limits in regards to his dad and bro so I don't think we will get that intensity on azula I think her actual cruelty would win out over his tenacity.

    • Son Omni

      @Papa Drew420 Nah if he had fire resistance then he wouldn’t even have those burns on his face and body, hell Endeavor wanted Shoto born in the first place so he could raise someone to have a counter to that drawback in the first place.
      Edit: My mistake, I just remembered none of the Todoroki’s would even survive if that were the case.

      Both also appreciate their moms, are close with tea-loving people (Iroh and Momo), are of the same age, are just as awkward, and went through a redemption arc that turned them into more genuine peaceful heroes involving their respective universes' best hero in-training with inherited power-accumulated abilities, all despite the fact that defeating said best hero in-training to prove themselves to their dads was their original goal.

  • FBadge

    I think one thing that should have been considered is that Zuko can not only create fire, but manipulate fire from sources that don't come from himself

    • kaos1118
      kaos1118 10 days ago

      @Quinton Venegas did you watch the anime. Todoroki isn't at that level yet. That's his dad technique

    • Quinton Venegas
      Quinton Venegas 10 days ago

      @kaos1118 true. He may have lightning fast reflexes. But one thing I noticed that they didn't mention is that prominence burn takes time to charge up. He couldn't have been able to fire them off willy nilly

    • kaos1118
      kaos1118 10 days ago

      @Quinton Venegas i mean, if we're going by the logic in the video todoroki has "lightning-fast reflexes" so it wouldn't be a problwm for him anyway

    • ChiyoDesu
      ChiyoDesu Month ago +3

      He… can’t though? I’ve never once seen a firebender take control over fire that they didn’t make themself. Unless you’re talking about the live action movie, in which case I humbly implore you to erase that garbage from your memory lmao

      Precisely..... Zuko should've won. They never had him use lightning once.

  • Sasha Shahriari

    Zuko demonstrated amazing efficiency with his swords and could likely mix fire and those attacks. I feel like zuko wasn’t adequately represented.

    • Winged BluJ
      Winged BluJ Month ago

      @RadiantGeneral Zelcina Except Zuko could breathe as his head was still exposed. As demonstrated in Katara vs Azula, being completely encased in ice to the point she couldn't move, Azula was helpless. Todoroki can do the same thing and completely freeze him solid. Not to mention the fact the only time we've seen Zuko unleash city block level fire attacks was when he was boosted by Sozin's Comet, and normally his attacks just don't match the scale of Todoroki's quirk.

    • WhatsMyName?

    • RadiantGeneral Zelcina
      RadiantGeneral Zelcina 3 months ago +3

      Not only that, but he could've freed himself from being frozen. There was a scene in the first season of the show where Zuko was fighting Katara and she froze Zuko almost exactly like Todoroki did. Zuko then freed himself by snorting hot steam. He couldn't move, like Wiz and Boomstick said he needed in order to free himself. He just merely snorted.

  • Princess Sia
    Princess Sia 2 years ago +94

    I just remembered Zuko can hold his breath for an extended amount of time an still be able to melt ice without taking a breath. Book 1 episode 19 is proof of this so he would have gotten out of Todoroki's ice.

    • kaos1118
      kaos1118 10 days ago

      @BrothaMan i mean to be fair i don't believe its ever seen for firebenders to even bend other firebenders fire so idek if thats something zuko can do

    • kaos1118
      kaos1118 10 days ago

      @Red Palladin expolding the ince is different from melting the ice- exploding has nothing to do with the temperature of the ice- it has to do with the ice's durability which generally speaking its not that durable unless your encased in it.

    • The Crusader
      The Crusader 6 months ago

      @BrothaMan It applies to fire in general, not fire produced by other benders.

    • BrothaMan
      BrothaMan 6 months ago

      @The Crusader but todoroki isn't a bender so the rule "can't bend a more powerful flame" doesn't apply because that rule only works on benders and todoroki isn't a bender.

    • The Crusader
      The Crusader 7 months ago

      @BrothaMan His fire is still way more powerful than Zukos. Plus Zuko can't do anything against Shoto's ice.

  • Zolen

    Yeah, this was pretty obvious, while Zuko clearly is better trained in martial arts and hand to hand in general, Todoroki has more raw power. It does not matter how much technique someone has if their opponent is powerful enough that its like a single ant vs a tank.

    I dont think it would end with Zuko just frozen in ice. Zuko was able to break out of Kataras ice in the north pole as soon as the sun rose and he's done this many times before, he has a lot of control over his body temprature

  • Luke Peters
    Luke Peters Year ago +6

    Power scales on both shows are different. Todoroki is capable of "bending" ice and fire to scales that the avatar can in the avatar state or like a firebender can during sozins comet. Also, him being able to control two elements already puts zuko at a disadvantage

    I sort of knew without watching MHA that Zuko would lose. He doesn't have much special going on besides fire bending.
    He's never successfully lightning bended, only redirected it, he's never lava bended... And his physical abilities are just peak human.

    • Sydney Carton
      Sydney Carton 7 months ago +3

      @Bob If we are using End of Series Zuko with Sozin's Comet Amp, then it's fair to use Current Manga Todoroki, and the outcome would be the same (if not even more one-sided).
      Todoroki is now mostly on Endeavor's level in terms of firepower (who is beyond Sozin's Comet Firebending), and he instantly put on ice an entire city block, including several skyscrapers from an immense distance.
      He also withstood Dabi's flames. He was able to neutralize Dabi's flames despite being hit by them point blank and at one point even being engulfed in them, and Dabi's flames are explicitly hotter than Endeavor's.

    • Bob
      Bob 9 months ago +5

      Lava bending is for earth benders. Zuko has used fire bending with his dual swords before to do some cool techniques. He might have stood a chance if the fight was during sozin's comet and not boosting todoroki's fire with it but I'm still not sure

  • Louise

    • kaos1118
      kaos1118 10 days ago

      technically if an airbender can get close it can completely overpower firebending and render them useless. It's been seen in legend of korra that airbenders can steal the air from people's lungs rendering people unable to breath- the one thing a firebender absolutely needs to firebend.

    Zuko could redirect lightning so I think they'd be the same speed, but the 2 elements gives him a major advantage

  • magnusm4
    magnusm4 9 months ago +6

    Comparing the shows visually directly. It seemed Todoroki would've won even in the early seasons of his show.
    In his match for the exams he froze the arena so fast to such a degree that even if Zuko had lightning reflexes, he wouldn't have any time to make any movements to cast fire.
    Even then they only showed that scale of fire during the comet. While Todoroki basically has an ice age in no time without flinching.

    • Elijah Jefferson
      Elijah Jefferson 9 months ago

      I feel like it could’ve gone either way, even with todo winning my only problem is we’ve seen Zuko break out of a block of ice in the North Pole at night, and that was season 1. Him being frozen during the day time when the sun makes fire benders stronger and he loses like that? Feel like he was downplayed in that aspect. But we all know they’d just have group therapy with Iroh anyway if they ever met.

  • Classyboo
    Classyboo 8 months ago +12

    I like how everyone is bad that Zuko didn’t use lighting in the battle lol..
    1. He never use or created lightning
    2. He has only redirected it once (I think? Or a couple times maybe? Idk)
    3. The fact that he can redirect lighting is also not relevant because Shoto can’t create lighting

    • Classyboo
      Classyboo 2 months ago

      @Chrispy_0 if they did tale in the comics then yeah, it would've definitely gone by differently. But again, they aren't using anything from the comics and only from the show so it really doesn't matter in this case.

    • Chrispy_0
      Chrispy_0 2 months ago

      @Classyboo They literally used a door melting feat from the comics (Smoke and Shadow) to gauge the temperature of Zuko's Firebending, but they didn't use any of Zuko's feats from that comic.
      That same comic showed Zuko in control of 'dragon fire' creating a giant twister of different colored flames to show his power and control over fire, easily equaling Any flame Shoto made as of the posting of this death battle.
      That same comic also shows Zuko getting hit by a bolt of lightning. He literally got hit by it (didn't redirect it the second time it hit him), And this was Azula's lighting, the same stuff that killed Aang way back in season 2, Zuko stood up moments later pissed off with no damage.
      That same comic also shows Zuko and Azula's fire daggers that actually clash against each other like solid objects despite being made of fire. Their fire daggers were literally light sabers they were so hot and and dense
      If these feats from the comics were considered and not just the door melting feat (which was done by a child with no experience in fire bending, so it was a terrible metric to use against experienced users like Zuko), the fight should have been much closer.

    This was close when it aired, but Shoto can now manipulate his Fire/Ice together way better & has better control over how hot his fire gets, even matching Dabi who's stated to be hotter than Endeavor.

      @I Hate These Rappers Shoto has better temperatures than stated in this fight & can manipulate both Fire/Ice much better, even mixing them. Zuko had a chance when this aired, but the Gap is now closed & Shoto always comes out as the winner.

    Todoroki is just another Zuko from another dimension.
    Same Scar.
    Same Papa issues.
    Same edginess.
    Both seeks honor.
    Same faces.
    Same Mama's boy.
    Both have siblings who controls blue flames.
    Both have best friends who can pass on their power, that also stacks.
    Both have girlfriends starts with letter M.

      @CosmicG777 ik am late💀😂. I believe Zuko would've won, but, bro, he doesn't have lightning powers. He was only shown to redirect lightning. I also think death battle should've showed off Zuko's sword fighting skills more. (They didnt think much about the fight. Why would Zuko be training without his swords, when he already a great firebender? He should've been practicing his sword fighting skills, maybe mixed with his firebending.)

    TBF, Zuko and Todoroki do have similar design in that they have the same mark on the same sides of their faces. Have similar origin stories. And their ways of fighting are similar in a way in that the both specialize in long range attacks. Only difference is todorki doesn't really specialize in close combat on the level of zuko that is. Plus they even say THEY ARE JUST LIKE EACH OTHER. The only reason Shoto won was bc of the ice.
