By the way, this says "Name is of Some Team."

Not only is the plural form of "Names" wrong, shouldn't "Teams" be plural, too?

I imagine it with the shark body/build but with the budgie wings that fold over its body.

Oooooh, that'd be interesting, all I know is that I'd love it to have shark teeth in a budgie beak. I have a budgie and the idea of it makes me laugh :XD:

is that team list actually canon to the show or are those just fanmade? That list looks similar to the ones I've seen for the Tumblr probending competitions, lol

My fanon has the White Liger Team, one of the oldest and most successful teams in the history of the sport. It was the legendary Haruka Rong Yan's team, she not only created and played for many years, but she currently owns it in her retirement.
Haruka was a legend back in the sport's early days, back when there were far, far less rules and way more room for creative brutality, like American football's early days, when it was so violent that President Teddy Roosevelt, one of our most badass presidents ever, nearly outlawed the sport.

Don't you mean a ligerdillo?

:giggle:

I mention that hybrid-of-two-hybrids in my fanfiction (armadillo-lion and tigerdillo are both canonical.)

No, I mean Liger. It is a hybrid animal (and a very big one at that!), and in the Avatar World it would be near-mythical (and in fact a major spirit takes the form of a liger).
I could always go with Gwazi if you prefer.
The Kirin would also make for a badass team mascot. It's essentially a cross between a dragon and a unicorn.

I know, I know, I was just being a devil's advocate. In the real world, ligers grow because they lack a growth inhibitor of some sort, right?

But, the Avatar world doesn't have canonical ligers, is all I'm saying. Ot Gwazis, or Kirins, for that matter.

Tiger-dillo and Camelephant lolz.

Of course, the Lion Turtle would pwn all.

I'm kind of disappointed they didn't come up with any NEW hybrids for these names. :(

The pro-bending might be more interesting had the "ring" been shaped like an hourglass- it gets harder the further you push the other team back. It shouldn't get easier and easier to force them back, with them having less room. The ones that have already lost territory and points should have more of a chance, not a disadvantage. This means that the matches will likely be decided within the first few moments.

On the other hand, I envision cool strategies like positioning one person intentionally behind your territory, to throw off the other team and draw more water (I'm assuming there's a fixed amount of water)

And I can just PLAINLY SEE Amon taking advantage of this "distance"-oriented bending training!!! Think of how up-close-and-personal Ty Lee got to people, and how fast! Training for probending where you reliably have so much space between your opponent is not going to help the benders much in that situation. They need to be skilled in hand to hand too. (I intend to point up this same weakness in my fanfiction, with Toph. Think of when Pakku blocked Katara's direct punches- even though we never saw her train to improve that, I'm sure she did at some point.)

What about the fire ferrets?? Or is it because Korra hasn't joined their team yet??

Or do they actually call themselves Avatar Squad III?
