~ Toph to Master Yu and Xin Fu

Toph Beifong is one of the main protagonists of the Avatar series. She appeared in the 42nd episode of Death Battle, Gaara VS Toph, where she fought against Gaara from the Naruto series. She was voiced by Kira Buckland.


Toph Beifong was born into the wealthy Beifong family. However, she was born a blind child. Her parents became extremely overprotective of her. One day when she was 6 years old, Toph ran away, upset that she was essentially trapped in a cage. She went into a cave and met some badgermoles. She took a liking to them, as they were also blind, and learned to Earthbend from their ways by "seeing" with her other senses and her "seismic sense" where she senses the every vibrations in the ground to know where everything is. She eventually returned to her home, and because she had left unannounced and by herself, her parents put a tighter leash on her and didn't even permit her to leave the house. Years later, she would constantly sneak out and compete in bending tournaments under the alias "The Blind Bandit". One day, she met Aang, the Avatar, and his friends Katara and Sokka. After Toph helped them defeat some criminals, she revealed to her parents her bending skills and they put an even tighter leash on her. Not being able to stand the overprotection any longer, Toph joined Aang on his journey and taught him Earthbending.

  • "Whew. Sorry, grumpy. I'm not ready to be a shish kebab just yet!"
  • "Come on! Are you really that scared of a little BLIND girl? I'm touched."
