Nicktoons - Tenzin by NewEraOutlaw Nicktoons - Tenzin by NewEraOutlaw
So, folks. Now we've reached the very last playable character for Nickelodeon Brawl Stars, and how appropriate....the last character is an airbender! *insert The Last Airbender jokes here*

It was a pretty tough call putting Tenzin here. I was juggling between several characters (check the footnotes below) and even up to that crucial time, I still didn't make a decision. What clinched it for Tenzin was actually Zuko, believe it or not. I think I might have fussed about his appearance causing an imbalance in the cast, because there were now more LoA characters than there were LoK characters, and I wanted to keep them even. Now, with Tenzin included, there is now an even 4 characters per series, as well as a playable airbender.

You may have noticed that Tenzin, unlike the others, is not a Time Release character. He's an unlockable. To get him, you have to visit his Trading Post and buy every Alternate Costume using the special Tenzin Tokens you earn during normal/online gameplay (hey, his family's got to eat, after all!) Or, you could skip all that and try to buy them online. Do so, and Tenzin will be yours to play with. However, unlike the other characters, Tenzin's Alternate and Halloween costumes are -not- available through conventional means.

So, without further ado...



Ultimate Nickelodeon Brawl Stars #56
Tenzin

From: "The Legend of Korra"
First Appearance: "Welcome to Republic City", March 24th, 2012


Special Powers:
- Airbending Master, has been trained in various offensive and defensive forms of aerokinesis
- Proficient in various forms of martial arts
- Limited Flight/Hovering using air gusts/wind balls
- Empathy with his loyal Sky Bison, Oogi


Quotes:

INTROS:

"Fight me at your own peril."
"I will meditate, and then I will win. Any questions?"
"I don't wish to harm you." (Occasionally Against a Hero)
"An ill wind approaches." (Occasionally against a villain)
"Remember your training, Avatar. I won't hold back!" (Against Korra)
"My children were once at your mercy. Never again!" (Against Amon)
"You remind me of Lin when she was your age." (Against Toph)
"Uncle Sokka? I am honored." (Against Sokka)
"You are a brave young lady for joining the fight, but let us see if you have what it takes." (Against Asami)
"Your flames burn brightly, but the winds of change will quickly blow them out!" (Against Azula)
"Many burdens face you. I feel your pain." (Against Zuko)
"You...have problems." (Against Mr. Crocker)
"Unfocused anger will only lead to your downfall." (Against Tai Lung)
"Apparently, Meelo would greatly enjoy your company." (Against Ren and Stimpy)

WIN POSES:

"I honestly expected much better."
"Do not mistake my peaceful nature for weakness. It is a very grave mistake to make."
"Where my family is concerned, I will not relent!"
"Did it ever occur to you that fighting me is literally like fighting the wind?"
"There were much more peaceful ways to end this conflict. Pity this incident was not one of them."
"You must conquer your recklessness before you become a well-rounded Avatar, Korra." (Against Korra)
"The annals of history does not remember cruel tyranny with kindness, princess." (Against Azula)
"...and that's for calling my father 'Twinkle Toes.'" (Against Toph)
" Your sense of humor reminds me of Bumi growing up. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not." (Against Sokka)
" Let not your sense of honour fade with your new obligations. You have a long road ahead of you!" (Against Zuko)
" I thought your stay at Air Temple Island would have inspired you to see how diligent we airbenders are. Perhaps I was mistaken." (Against Asami)
" You were wrong to go after my family, Amon. Very wrong." (Against Amon)
"Like I said. Unfocused anger. Downfall." (Against Tai Lung)



VICTORY SCREENS:

"I am not a violent man, but I can hold my own just fine. As you can see."
"'Old man'? You should feel that much worse that you lost, then!"
"Well....back to meditating."
"Thank you, friend. It was a good fight." (Occasionally against a Hero)
"If only you chose the path of righteousness. Then you wouldn't be unconscious right about now." (Occasionally against a Villain)
"Resist, and I will simply go with the flow. Comes with the territory of the mastery of airbending."
"Perhaps I haven't trained you hard enough, Korra. You have a long way to go before you bring balance to the world." (Against Korra)
"My father had great respect for you. As do I, young Fire Lord." (Against Zuko)
"Well, I can certainly see where Lin gets her *ahem* tenacity from." (Against Toph)
"It seems that in your haste to eliminate all benders, you had neglected to account for the power of airbending. As Korra would say, that led to you "getting your butt kicked and utterly handed to you." (Against Amon)
"You are far too young to carry such resentment in your soul. I hope, at least, that this defeat has humbled you." (Against Azula)
"Keep fighting the good fight. You will grow up to be an inspiration to us all." (Against Sokka)
"Technology is no match for the human spirit, but the purity of your heart despite your hidden pains is to be admired." (Against Asami)
"Had you meditated and cleansed your soul, the rage you feel would have long since passed. But alas, your mind is consumed, and thoughts of vengeance have led to your defeat." (Against Tai Lung)
"You remind me of my young daughter, Ikki. So vibrant, so playful, so eager to embrace the world. I wish you well, child." (Against Bessie)
"Such a brilliant young man. I have a rather intelligent young daughter that I'd like you to meet...." (Against Jimmy Neutron)


OTHER QUOTES:

"I am here!" (Tag In)
"I will return!" (Tag Out)
"A fierce wind comes!" (If First to perform a Delayed Hyper Combo)
"Here comes the storm!" (If Second to perform a Delayed Hyper Combo)
"NO!!!" (Loss if hit with a Hard Attack)
"Pema.....my family...." (Loss if hit with a Soft Attack)
*face turns red and facepalms* "How embarassing!" (Loss via Time Over)



FOOTNOTES:

- The choices I was milling over when I was choosing the last character were Skipper, Sandy Cheeks and Tenzin. Skipper pretty much came at the last second in the decision making process, but I thought it would be a bit anti-climactic to make him the last playable character. To give it more significance, I decided it should be Tenzin, to balance the Avatar roster and make it somewhat symbolic as well (he's a mentor who has been guiding the heroes from the beginning, to become playable at the end.)

- Why Tenzin and not Aang? Well, the answer for that is - *gets kidnapped by Smurfs*

Just came back here because I remembered this quote the other day and I personally think it's brilliant:

"Apparently, Meelo would greatly enjoy your company."

I completely missed it the first time, but I just noticed the " his costumes are not available by conventional means" part. So, how are they unlocked? Playing through the story mode with him?

You unlock his alternate costume by purchasing all of the other alternate costumes in the shop. Likewise for his Halloween Costume.

Certainly love how you handled his personality, particularly his reactions to Ren/Stimpy, Crocker, and the Avatar cast. Think it would be interesting to see how he reacts to Aang.

I just had an odd thought. Would Tenzin get any alternate costumes? I ask because I don't think we've seen him wear anything else outside of his airbender robes.

Toss Reed Timmer and the Dominator in there.  I would love to see him go up against a master airbender with his tornado intercept tank. ;)

Lol.  Reed Timmer is a famous storm chaser who takes this modified car called the Dominator out to intercept tornadoes.  It has been tested in and has withstood an EF5 tornado (I don't care what the damage says; the radar says it's an EF5).  Reed has nothing to do with Nickelodeon, but I still find the idea of a storm chaser facing off against an airbending master to be highly entertaining.  I know, this is for a game, but still, you gotta admit the idea is a fun one.

Wait a second, you said there would be three time release characters and the mid-boss before fighting Paraiah Dark. Tenzin is counted as a TR character, but you still have to do Fright Knight (I assume it is him, because the connections with the Halloween Costumes etc.)

Yeah, Tenzin was actually supposed to be the 3rd Time Release character, but I decided at the last moment that since he's the last playable character, there should be a bit more weight to his debut, so I made him an unlockable instead.

As for the unplayable mid-boss, there's a chance that character will be released early before Halloween (unless that Schedule option when you submit art works like how I think it does.)

Sandy was an option? :iconcryforeverplz:

But yeah Tenzin, cool. Although I don't think it matters if there are more Avatar characters than Korra characters, because Avatar is a bigger show (currently).

For Clarification: By bigger I mean as in more seasons and that Korra is a sequel to it, which also gives it some priority.

Huh... I thought there were a few more time-release characters left... That's disappointing...

...Still, an airbender was needed in the roster. Looks like Zuko being included worked out after all!

Tenzin was going to be a Time Release character, but I decided that since he's the last playable character, his debut should have a bit more significance to it, almost like a reward at the end when a player purchases all of the alternate costumes in-game.

Cool, so he is the last character in the roster... for now. That you actually considered Sandy, she is awesome though but I didn't expect that. And I'm glad you didn't choose Skipper, one character from a show based on a Dreamworks film is enough (though he was an OC from the show).

And now hurry up with the Alternate/Halloween costumes : p

I thought you said that it wouldn't make sense to have two Avatars at once and that's why you chose Korra rather than Aang.

*saves you from Smurfs* There. Now tell us more about Aang.

LoL In all seriousness though, I actually don't mind Aang not being on the roster, and Tenzin is freaken awesome! I'm just curious as to why you decided not to include him. Then we could have had an Avatar-on-Avatar smackdown!

Thanks. Now, as promised, I will proceed to tell you some more about Aang.

- He's bald.
- He has a crush on Katara.
- He once froze himself into an iceberg.
- His grandson Meelo looks a lot like him, if you smacked Aang in the face repeatedly with a frying pan.
