Toph doesn’t even know WHAT a moon is
@Saurutobi, "THERE'S A ROCK IN THE SKY????"
It seems like most benders need the element to be somewhat present (near them). Idk but it'd be ridiculous if they could bend stuff on the other side of the world. You could literally just be like oh nice house you have ozai too bad it's gone now. Same with any fire benders they could just destroy the food and houses without any invasion.
@Cousteau, I believe in one of the comics Toph says "If you can see it, I can bend it." I think this works as a general rule of thumb barring extreme circumstances , such as bending something you see miles away.
@Cousteau, it was pointed out to me, that during the blimp fight at the end of the show, was the first time she bent something she wasn't touching.
@That one lurker, I mean she did bend rocks in the air...
@Cousteau, i mean old toph could feel the esrth all around the world so its possible she could have bended it anywhere
@jerriest jerry , could she though? Because she should be able to bend poopoo and therefore could've killed the fire lord any day of the week. Or when he's taking a drink change the cup and force it down his throat. Even while he's sleeping you could just shove a spike up his ass every time he tries to sleep or cause a small earthquake.
@Cousteau, definitley dont disagree that toph is super op if you think about it even a little bit.
