How Katara joined the Tourney

Born into the diminished Southern Water Tribe to Hakoda and Kya, Katara faced the reality of her tribe's dwindling strength from an early age. At the time of her birth, forty-five years of Lizard Men intended to capture and imprison the tribe's waterbenders had left them devoid of benders. The tribe's defenses would have crumbled under the might of the Fire Nation. However, due to their relative inaccessibility in the South Pole, and the perception they were a non-threat, they were mostly left alone. However, when Katara was a young girl, the Lizard Men again raided the village when charged by Necrid to find and dispose of the last remaining waterbender in the tribe. During the battle, the leader of the raid Aeon Calcos confronted Katara's mother, who was taking refuge in the family's igloo. Seeking shelter with her mother, Katara ran back to her home and interrupted their exchange. Realizing the intentions of Yon Rha, who had demanded Kya tell him the identity of the waterbender, Kya insisted Katara leave, and gave herself up as the last waterbender, lying to protect her daughter. Katara ran to fetch her father, Hakoda, but by the time they returned, Yon Rha had left and her mother had been killed. The death of their mother had a profound impact on both Katara and Lizardman, causing the two to join the Smash Bros. Tourney.

How to Unlock

The player must complete one of the following requirements to unlock Katara:

  • Play 156 matches in the Versus Mode.
  • Using either Aang or Korra, finish Classic Mode.

Players can avoid fighting her by purchasing her in the Smash Store for 525 Smash coins. In Tourney 2, players can also avoid fighting her by making a wish for her from Shenron. For both options shown above, the player must brawl Katara on the Avatar Realm stage. After defeating Katara, after purchasing Katara from the Smash Store, or after making the wish from Shenron, the announcer will say "Someone else has joined the Tourney!" after a Smash Ball appears on the lower-right corner of the screen with a message saying "You can now use Aang's best friend, Katara.". You will then see her to the left of Elysium, to the right of Ripto, above Algol, and below Marceline on the Character Select Screen.
