Abilities EditTy Lee blocking Chi.
Added by RenatablsMaster Acrobat: Ty Lee was extraordinarily acrobatic. Even at a young age, she was able to execute cartwheels and somersaults in mid-air with a skill that surpassed even the agile Azula's. Her acrobatic abilities allowed her to join the Fire Nation circus, where she frequently performed high-wire acts with balance and grace. People traveled for miles to see her perform. Because of this, she was very fast and agile in battle, able to outmaneuver almost any opponent she came across. Her abilities allowed her to dodge dozens of powerful Earthbenders, who were unable to land a hit on her. She was also very flexible, able to contort herself into positions nearly impossible for a normal person to achieve and walk on her hands without any struggle. These abilities allowed her to scale almost any surface very quickly, and squeeze through most barriers and into small spaces.
Pressure-Point Master: However, Ty Lee's defining, most noticeable ability was her mastery of pressure-point striking martial arts, chi blocking. She was able to strike sequences of pressure points immobilize her enemies to various degrees. She had the ability to paralyze a single body part, or even the entire human anatomy. This technique allowed her to block certain Chi paths in benders to compromise their abilities. This made her especially dangerous to warriors like Katara, who relied solely on their Bending and possessed no secondary fighting skills. She was so powerful, that outside the walls of Ba Sing Se, she was able to defeat dozens of powerful Earthbenders within seconds. However, if her target had faced her before or is expecting it, the effectiveness of her Chi blocking decreased as her opponent took measures to prevent her from using the technique. Fighting her before, Suki was able to avoid her attacks at the Boiling Rock, and Katara and Sokka were able to do so as well. She also took Azula by surprise when she was about to strike Mai. It might be possible that she could kill someone with her chi blocking skills, but did not do so because of her kind-hearted personality and lack of need to do so.
