Avatar: The Last Airbender. Hedrick, Tim (writer) & MacMullan, Lauren (director). Arriving at the factory, they all sneaked in and Toph used her metalbending to tear a hole in the hangar's wall, before seamlessly sealing it again. Sokka asked how they could prove Liling and her daughters were the ones sabotaging the factories, to which Toph replied that she planned to question Yaling about it while pretending to teach her metalbending. Due to her blindness, Toph had no reading or writing skills. An elderly Toph found an unconscious Korra in the Foggy Swamp and nursed her back to health. [57], She also displayed a remarkable amount of agility for one who preferred to have her feet planted on the ground at all times. [41], When she went on to teach her unique talent of metalbending, she realized how her dogged pursuit of her own dreams of becoming the world's first metalbending teacher disrespected who her students were. Katara advised otherwise, saying that they did not know why the factories were attacked or the extent of Liling's involvement, and that they could not arrest her without evidence. Toph was initially designed as a jock-type, bad-mouthing, muscular, sixteen-year-old boy[64] who would act as a foil to Sokka's nerdiness,[65] as revealed by the co-creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko during an interview with Toon Zone. [45], While hijacking an airship, Toph mistook Sokka's comment about taking the wheel, thinking he was referring to her. [1] Toph's total mastery over earthbending, unique personality, and thoughtful pragmatism made her a valuable addition to the team. She is introduced in the second season of Avatar, and travels with the protagonist Aang as his earthbending teacher. This style greatly differentiated from the rigid training and fighting style that earthbenders like the Dai Li implemented. Being the Avatar, Korra has a unique relationship to natural and spiritual forces both of which are evident in the banyan-grove, Toph is taking refuge in. Toph asked. When Sokka barged in and told Lao to follow him down toward the iron mine, Toph accompanied them. Acting upon the orders of Toph's father, he did not teach her anything other than beginner's moves, unaware that she had already achieved mastery in the art. Afterward, she attended a banquet in celebration of the election with her friends, during which Katara inquired about the state of her metalbending academy; she answered without excitement that her school was doing well, to the point that she had more students than she could properly house. A group of benders was trapped by Toph, who enclosed them in between metal walls. [32], Despite her tough exterior, Toph is not above warming up during intimate moments, as evidenced when she joined in group hugs with Team Avatar and held hands with Aang at the prospect of friendships lasting more than one lifetime. Jordan Alexander Groggs is survived by Anna and their four children Joey, Jayden, Toph, and Ari. While raised in a wealthy and prominent Earth Kingdom family, Toph deliberately lacked manners as a form of rebellion. When Satoru refuted the accusation, Toph used her seismic sense lie-detecting abilities to corroborate the engineer's story and took his side in the argument, once again preferring the future over the objections of the past. With Bolin's help, she catapulted Lin atop the wooden cell, so she could swing back all the prisoners on her cable and Bolin could catch them. She continued to say that they were both needed to help her stop Zuko's army from going to war against the Earth King. He conceded that perhaps he was, but retorted by asking if she was not trying too hard to escape hers, to which Toph replied that some people simply had to run away in order to live. But it caused both of them to feel that she was ignoring them as their mutual need for her attention caused them to react in different ways: the older and strict Lin following in her mother's footsteps as a Republic City police officer while the free-spirited Suyin rebelled against Toph by hanging with the wrong crowd. Her design became a subject of difficulty for the staff, who wanted her to return to the size of her twelve-year-old self from the original series despite flashbacks in the earlier part of The Legend of Korra showing her as having grown in height. Toph Beifong was born into the wealthy Beifong family. Chronological information Entering her father's office, Toph was once again told by him that he was not his daughter, as he had raised a poised, demure, obedient young woman. Although Toph's hair appeared to be short, it was shown to be very long and bushy when she let it down. Unlike the nurturing Katara, flighty Aang, or gruff but goofy Sokka, Toph was fiercely independent, sarcastic, direct, stubborn, confrontational, and somewhat spoiled. [26] When morning came, Aang returned to Earthen Fire Industries, informing Toph, Katara, and Sokka that the saboteur, out of gratitude to Aang for saving him, revealed that he had been hired by a pair of teenage girls, one of whom was a skilled earthbender. After waking up and seeing Lao and a refinery worker in panic, Toph asked what was happening. However, sometimes this acted as a ruse to hide personal insecurities. [1] Her blindness and patience helped her to develop a keen sense of hearing. As Korra lamented about her inability to recover her old form, Toph told her there were still traces of mercury in her body. The two girls earthbent at each other, and Toph ran up the side of a wall, luring Yaling to the roof. Despite this and wanting to soak her feet in mud for a few weeks, Toph still decided to train Korra, stating that she simply could not stand the Avatar to be "so pathetic and getting [her] butt kicked all the time". This moment in Sozin’s Comet where Toph and Sokka think ‘this is it, we’re going to die, we did everything we could’ is heartbreaking for so many reasons.Because it’s tragic and seems final and they were just kids.Sokka holding on to Toph with all his strength even though his leg is broken and Toph putting all her trust in Sokka because he’s the only thing saving her? Nickelodeon. She ended her reasoning by asking him if he really wanted to sacrifice what she and Satoru deemed to be the future for a "stupid, backwards holiday". Despite her substantial prowess on land, Toph did not perform well in water and on ice. The next morning, Toph and her metalbending students began doing construction work on Maliq and Malina's factory as protesters gathered at the fence surrounding the site. Her action, however, earned her a reprimanding speech from Aang, much to her annoyance. That night, Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Suki followed Toph as she accompanied Yaling to the location of the meeting. [1] Her success rate in intercepting projectiles was also tied to her sensing of vibrations, being able to feel an opponent's movement, and proceeding accordingly.

[9][better source needed]. [4] Although initially uninterested in directly aiding the war effort, she eventually chose to leave behind her old life, and travel with Avatar Aang and his friends as his earthbending teacher, when her parents finally became unbearable for her. A laid-back individual, Toph is fine with her blindness. She took the unconscious Avatar back to her home and laid her to rest in her bed while she made a meal. Due to her time as a competitor and champion of earthbending tournaments, she was an expert in verbally taunting and insulting her opponents and, on occasion, her friends, particularly Sokka. Toph dismissed the question as there was no story there, considering she merely "threw some rocks at the Avatar, he got all whiny, and Sokka fell in a hole". The relationship did not work out, however, and six years later, she had another daughter, Suyin, with another man though she ended up raising them as a single parent. From this idea which blossomed as a joke and after long discussions, Toph was given her gender and turned into the character that was introduced in the show, ironically becoming one of Bryan's favorite characters. Despite exclusively using Praying Mantis-style earthbending, it is possible Toph knows some very basic Hung Gar earthbending, at least in form only, since Master Yu gave her beginner-level instruction up until her meeting with Team Avatar. Toph also began to travel the world to teach metalbending to other earthbenders, founding an academy for the art near the former Fire Nation colonial city of Yu Dao. She learned that the scientist had run away from home and, after hearing his story, said he was not a "sniveling flunky" as he claimed for not confronting his uncle. Toph returns in the tenth episode, "Operation: Beifong", to aid Lin, her granddaughter Opal, and Bolin, in freeing Suyin and her family from Kuvira's Earth Empire forces. Her affinity with the earth is further illustrated in that Toph does not know how to swim and expresses an aversion to flying. Episode 17. [27] When Toph questioned why, they all went quiet, but she insisted on her idea, claiming that Liling could not lead a bender supremacist movement if she was not a bender. [47], Because of the restrictions placed upon her by her parents and the fact that their servants waited upon her hand-and-foot lest she hurt herself, Toph often seemed to want to take on the responsibilities and obtain the freedoms of adulthood. She told Katara that "one of the good things about being blind [was] that [she did] not have to waste [her] time worrying about appearances" and was not looking for anyone's approval. As the infant seemed to lack the \"spark in [his] eyes\" that is typical for most firebenders, the royal family was unsure if Zuko was a bender at all. Ignoring Bolin's antics, she informed the threesome of her discovery that Suyin and her family had been moved to a prison camp. The major difference with Toph, however, is that unlike Ozai and Hiroshi, the actions of Toph's father were geared more toward paranoia and overprotection rather than directly inflicting pain on her out of some sense of morality. This was probably a product of her learning earthbending by crawling on all fours like badgermoles. When Liling's followers approached, the walls suddenly began to move, being controlled by Toph. [34] It is categorized as the most diverse and enduring of the "four bending arts". After Asami's brainwashing was undone, Toph and Suyin listened to a radio report about Guan's unexpected victory after Wu moved up the election date.

Retreating back to the hills surrounding the facility, Toph noted with irritation that she had not come to fight with Kuvira or destroy a cannon, as Opal and Bolin, respectively, suggested to do and emphasized that she was solely there to save her family, adding that it would already take everything that they had to survive the endeavor. One of the most persistent mysteries that has bedeviled the Avatar fandom since the release of The Legend of Korra centers around the parentage of Toph's children. "Lake Laogai". She revealed that she heard Ru and Yaling's footsteps after the explosion at the Earthen Fire Refinery, and that Yaling's claim about not being up the cliffs was a lie, guessing that she was the earthbender who nearly killed the saboteur. However, because Toph was dependent on vibrations in the earth, she was vulnerable to air-based attacks, as shown in her fight with Aang in Earth Rumble VI. There, Ty Lee immediately became excited, prompting Toph to question why she never went back to being a circus acrobat.

[1] Through this heightened seismic sense, Toph could visualize where people were, their relative distance to her, and their physical build, but was unable to visualize faces. He went on to say that benders across the city had lost their jobs as other factories installed machines like his, and that some benders refused to work for factories owned by nonbenders as a result, the earthbender guards who used to work at Earthen Fire Industries being an example.

Following Toph's retirement, Lin Beifong became the new Chief of Police, demonstrating her prodigious metalbending and leadership abilities. Later on, when the time came closer to the character's debut, the creators pitched about the humor behind a little girl being able to take on all the strong, buff earthbenders, an idea introduced by head writer Aaron Ehasz that was initially rejected by co-creator Konietzko. They went to extreme measures to protect her, including hiding her existence from the rest of the world, which resulted in very few people knowing that the Beifong family even had a daughter.

In the third-season episodes, "The Metal Clan" and "Old Wounds", it is revealed that Toph made her peace with a repentant Suyin and spent some years living with Suyin's family in Zaofu, a city of creative metalbenders founded by Suyin, which recognized Toph as the inventor of metalbending.
