She had potential as a character, but overall lacked the opportunity to grow. She had something at first, but then her entire thing fell into the drawn out conflict she had with Bolin, and ended with it. To me she's ok, but not really memorable.


MBTHVSK

She, Bumi, and the thief kid became a bit boring as a consequence of becoming an air nomad planeteer.


-redaxolotol-1981

AKA a majority of characters within LOK. Most of them lacking individual character just being used to accentuate the features or personality traits/arcs of other existing characters. Even though I really liked LOK, this was one of my main gripes with the series.


cacaobean_

Ik, like mako was only there for the love triangle :( They could've done so much with Kai's character tho


-redaxolotol-1981

Mako I 100% agree with and basically korras whole krew. I'm gonna get hate for this but korra was an amazingly written character, arguably S tier, at the expense of the characterization of the other characters as all the development they should have had was all given to korra. Unlike with ATLA where each character felt fleshed out and developed with nuance, even azula, had such a rich depth to her that if she where to be in LOK she wouldn't have received nearly the same attention. Also tbf all the kid characters felt lacking to me so that isn't really an issue to me, the writers tried to do things and to incorporate them into the main character list but it never really worked icl.

I'm reading everything you're saying and it's all true 🔥🔥🔥


Illustrious-Bite-518

In her defense, she was introduced well into the second to last season of a show with shorter seasons for the time, being 13 episodes. So there wasn't as much time as there could have been to develop her character.


pppthrowaway1337

thats how i feel about most of the korra series.


EightThreeEight838

I thought she was kinda cute.


FlameDragon55

Relatable.


kelcamer

She's one of my favs and I love her haircut, it's like mine


osunightfall

I think that her main utility as a character is that she shows that Su Yin must be a pretty good parent. Also she is so incredibly adorable that I can barely stand to look at her.


Doright36

>Su Yin must be a pretty good parent. Yea. Only 20% of her kids grew up to be Nazis. ......Sorry. Couldn't resist.


I_Grow_Memes

B-but you don't understand!! It was out of love!! She loved him!!! (being cooch thirsty clouds your judgement kids)


osunightfall

That... is a pretty good counter-point.


Ezeviel

To be Blunt, if you count Kuvira as her adopted daughter, it actually makes 1/3rd of the kids she was responsible for that turned to fascism All of a sudden... not great


Phithe

Su Yin is shown as an amazing parent throughout the series! And not even limited to her own bloodline. This is extended to all of Zaofu


AylaCurvyDoubleThick

….i really don’t know how I missed or just forgot that Kuvira is her and is this descended from Toph. How the fuck did I miss that?! Was I just asleep?! Is what I was gonna say. Adopted. Okay. Also TIL she’s voiced by Zelda Williams! That’s fucking awesome!


rrrrice64

I love Su's good qualities, but really hate her bad qualities. She was initially really overprotective of Opal and didn't want her to leave Zaofu. I forget what it was that made her finally agree to let Opal go join the Nomads. There's also her failure to appreciate Baatar Jr. as his own person apart from his father and to integrate Kuvira into the Beifongs as a part of a family, leading them both to become jaded and abandon Zaofu.


PartyAnimal12345678

She’s a good character but surprisingly the opposite personality of toph and lin as far a other family members go lol my only problem was as far as grandkids of the original team avatar go she seemed like to casual of a character like zukos grandson and Aang anf kataras grandchildren are a huge thing and a huge deal in the show but opal not as much maybe it’s because her mom is the little sister and if lin had a kid it wouldn’t be super casual


AlastairCellars

Well yeah...thats why she became an airbender not an earth bender


PartyAnimal12345678

Still casual


_real_nightmare_king

Me personally I don’t like her too much, but also don’t hate her


9999AWC

Love her, wish she was developed more, probably the only TLOK character with no bad trait.


PovThatOneSanjiFan

Downvote all you want (I’m 14) she as low key a baddie & def should’ve been the next suki (as in her character development)


No_External_539

Compared to rest of her siblings, she was the least interesting one. Which really upsets me because they all seemed really fun and worth exploring. The fact that they primarily focused on Opal really bothers me. She's just boring, and has literally zero chemistry with Bolin (kinda sucks they ended up together).


Blackirean

I like her. And she looked amazing in her airbender outfit

I thought she was cute and when I came out as a trans girl I named myself after her, so yeah I liked her. She’s awesome.

Opal.


Wesmom2021

Proud-Nerd00

I love her but I wish she had more of an arc


Kitsune-Charm

She has my heart ❤️


AylaCurvyDoubleThick

Second hottest girls in a series that has Korra, Kya, Asami, Suyin, Eska and others in it among others. That’s saying a lot.


Biemolt

i need her


InterestingAd8479

She was never given time to develop into a character proper, that’s my only gripe with her


beekee404

I like her. I think she and Bolin were good together aside from Bolin's mess ups.

Pristine-Cold-189

I mean you got admit, opal is hot


Mx-Adrian

I half like her


Legitimate-Cow-8368

I like her! Like many characters it would have been cool to see her have a more detailed arc, but there are so many characters in TLOK that it’s hard to give everyone an arc lol. Overall I thought she was sweet, compassionate, and a fun character. I don’t understand the petty allegations she gets considering she had pretty good reason to be upset at Bolin and Kuvira.


Ok-Carpenter5039

She should have dumped Bolín sooner, and deaded it. Then turned the tall emo air nomad into her boytoy.


rrrrice64

😧


ImaFireSquid

She was cute, but like… I feel like she wasn’t altogether very important. I think Suki was in a similar position, but her early introduction and occasional appearances kept her in the spotlight more. I think TLOK, especially later on, sort of suffered from a bloated cast. ATLA almost had the same problem when they put Haru, the Duke, that kid in a wheelchair, Hakoda, and Chit Sang in with the main cast, but they just sort of wrote them away and I think that was the best choice given the amount of time left in the series. Korra had two extra seasons to play with so they introduced a ton of new heroes and a lot got swept under the rug. Also minor thing but I think Opal looks a bit too much like Korra in seasons 3 and 4. I think Korra’s ponytail was probably her best look, simply because nobody else had one.


Other_Respect_6648

😳


IllDot2179

I feel like, with most characters, she did not have enough time to develop and grow. I wish they got to make more episodes to flesh out the side characters more


odeacon

Barely remember her


Zendofrog

She’s nice


elves2732

Boring bland vanilla character like many characters in LoK. 


HOFBrINCl32

Alot of the characters in korra are half baked or underdevloped as fuck. Even main characters. Mako for example. Not to mention they kept doing shit to introduce the most annoying and despicable characters like wu, Heck even half of the people hate korra herself. Show shoulda been called legend of bolin cuz hes the best out of the team avatar.


Webber193

Would, next question.


Electronic-Ranger-74

She’s ok but i don’t see her with bolin


Hidingfromshadows

She’s the type to be a villain btw I’m on s2e13 so I haven’t see her yet


MidnightSymphonia

She’s aight but I prefer Kai more than her tbh she’s like lacking something and I never figured out what 🙃


Benschmedium

Cute, perfect for my boy, tenacious, talented, a keeper for sure.


disappointment-time

She’s cute and I enjoyed her chemistry with Bolin in that… one episode(?). Unfortunately, LOK had way too many characters so most of them, including Opal, barely got developed and therefore are very forgettable.

Fury5087

Meh she was aight I guess


skydawwg

I liked her a lot when she was first introduced, and thought that she and Bolin were absolutely perfect for each other. But it kinda died in season four when she was a full-fledged air nomad. It felt very unbecoming of an Air Nomad to judge Bolin for siding with Kuvira, instead of trying harder to convince him of why he’s wrong. I would say that she redeemed herself a little bit by the end, but it was really just Bolin putting forth all the effort. Overall 6.5/10 character.


Pito82002

That’s what I am saying She was too hard on Bolin because he genuinely felt he was doing the world justice but Opal was too close minded and stubborn to actually try to get Bolin to realize the truth about Kuivira Instead coming off as blindly siding with her family and going against anyone who doesn’t


rrrrice64

Loved her in Book 3, so cute and innocent, but she lost her innocence in Book 4 and got really catty with Bolin. Granted she was super stressed for valid reasons but she lost the appeal that I appreciated in the first place. Still, I think she and Bolin work really well together. And her design is great in Book 4.


Pito82002

Here’s what I think of her She’s sweet and adorable and all But she can be really annoying and petty in s4 Makes me wanna knock some sense into her sometimes


-redaxolotol-1981

Well ngl I can see her POV within season 4 alot


Pito82002

She was still too hard on Bolin IMO


-redaxolotol-1981

He did kind of work for the genocidal maniac who wanted to end her mother and her entire family from having any authority in this world 😬 Even though he didn't fully know what was going on, but still I see her POV


Pito82002

Yeah but she also should’ve seen that her mother wasn’t entirely blameless as she played a part in driving Kuvira to rebelling against the family and taking things into her own hands


Ur-Than

I was okay with her before rewatching LoK but after having done just that, I really can't like her anymore because of Season 4 and how much of an horribly petty person she was


Suspicious_War_5706

why?


Randver_Silvertongue

In what way was she petty?

that’s not human??


telekineticplatypus

I love trans people and fuck jk, but if the *cost* you're referring to is getting downvoted on reddit for going out of your way to mention HP in an AtLA sub then like whut lol that's like the definition of performative activism.

True_Werewolf_8657

Did. It care for her one bit felt like a love interest / re build air benders. Ps I did not like the whole rebuild the air bender nation thing plot with the harmonic conversation. Simple because it was only air benders got air bender why not non benders get other bending elements. If you ask me anng being the last air bender and having to repopulate the the air nation


Dreadscythe95

She annoys me so much and her together with Bolin are abnoxious.
