Minecraft: The Last Airbender is a Minecraft plugin for a Bukkit server. It is designed for Survival Multiplayer, and allows players to choose an element to bend as the benders do in the world of Avatar (the stage of Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel The Legend of Korra).

Some quick notes: I will warn you that you will not be able to do everything they do in the show. There are limitations both in Minecraft and in Bukkit that prevent such extravagance. In the details of each discipline you can see exactly what you can do. As such, the description of the bending disciplines is a little altered to reflect their role in the world of Minecraft: The Last Airbender.


  • Play as a bender and choose which type you would like to be.
  • Battle other users and see who is the best of the best.
  • Compatible with WorldGuard, Factions, PreciousStones, GriefPrevention, and CreeperHeal. (Many more plugins will be added to this list)
  • Nothing is required client-side
  • Permissions support!


Users may bend water, earth, fire, air, or can go with being a chiblocker.. You may pick which type of bender you would like to be with the command: /bending choose [water/air/earth/fire/chi]. You may only choose one, with the exception of the Avatar, and you may never change it so be careful in your decision.


  • Specializes in maneuverability in and on the water.
  • Oceans are perfect for water benders.
  • Techniques range from shooting water that do damage, freezing lakes, or even pushing enemies back with powerful waves.
  • This bending style is a mixture of offensive and defensive.
  • Water bending opens up many options in bodies of water that are otherwise closed to the other disciplines.


  • Specializes in manipulating the earth around them.
  • Any area which contains land is perfect for earth benders.
  • They have the abilities to pull columns straight up from the earth, drill their way through any mountain and launch themselves through the air.
  • This bending style, like water bending, is a mixture of offensive and defensive.
  • Earth benders do not take fall damage as long as they land on the ground.


  • Specializes on destruction and incineration.
  • Any environment, besides on any bodies of water, is perfect for them.
  • They may create rings of fire on the ground, shoot lines of fire, and even create exploding fireballs.
  • This bending style is pure offensive, and very little mobility/defense.
  • Fireball is the only ability they may use that does not require any solid ground beneath them.


  • Specializes in mobility & defense.
  • The land is the ideal place for airbenders, although they may also bend over the water.
  • Bending air allows you to use wind to blast things away, forming a shield of air around you, or using a tornado to lift you, or your opponent, off of their feet.
  • This bending style is perfect for pacifists and explorers for they lack any raw damage output, but make up for it with their utility and speed.
  • Choosing air as your element increases your overall speed, decreases the rate of hunger and disables fall damage.

Chi Blocking

  • Specializes in bare handed combat.
  • Move faster, jump higher, take less fall damage.
  • Can block someones chi, stopping them from Bending for a short period of time.
  • Abilities range from Higher Jumps, Faster Punches, and Paralysis of enemies.

HELP! It's not working!

This is a Bukkit plugin, not a single player mod. It will never be a single player mod. Go to the Bukkit Wiki to set up your own server. You can play on it just like you would single player, and it requires nothing more than setting it up.

If anything is not working, look around for a development build of Bending.

Development progress

School has picked back up, so plugin development will be very intermittent at best. I've done away with the ordered releases, and will most likely be keeping 1.0.7 the "official" version until I release it as 1.1.0. It's a jump, I know, but if I were forced to stick to a schedule, the plugin would never get done. This is because there are things I like coding and want to code now, and I shouldn't have to wait just because I have something else planned for the version.

As such, there is no ETA on the release. The dev build will of course be updated as I add features, but 1.1.0 will only be officially released when everything is completed, and that could take a very long time.

    @monstercat101: Go

    I used PEX and have one ladder which players climb. Each successive rank inherits the last. Are you saying I should be explicit about permissions and remove inheritance completely and then dump this into a world entry for the survival world?

    @CyanLights: Go

    I can assure you, if you negate the permissions, it stops bending any/all moves. The issue may be the configuration of your permission plugin and what worlds it inherits to. Make sure the world in which you want to stop bending has a separate groups file, and that the default group there has all the disabling perms. Also make sure that that world isn't listed as inheriting the groups and users from any other world. :)

    @orion304: Go


    I appreciate your help, but I'm afraid I'm still having problems revoking bending permissions. My goal is to revoke all bending in my main survival world, so that it doesn't change our gameplay mechanics.

    I revoked myself all of the nodes listed on your permissions page (using -bending.perm.perm, etc), including the passive ones, I did this so I could further debug in case it was because -bending.* having inheritance issues.

    Unfortunately, even with -bending.water.waterspout and -bending.water.passive, I can still use WaterSpout and HealingWaters. I assume it is the case for other things like AirSpout as well.

    Would it be at all possible to just have blacklisted worlds in config.yml? I'm sorry for causing so much of a hassle.

    penquin as long as you post comment relative to the plugin then there's no problem. I'm very sorry you're having those issues however, from the sounds if them they cannot be resolved here nor should they be addressed here. I hope everything is solved as soon as possible. If you're upset, please don't be. :)

    Let me just type in advance before any chance of being warned that I'm aware my messages might have been acknowledged as spam and for that I'm very sorry. I do not wish to make it inconvenient for anyone. :(

    penquin I don't mean to be rude or anything but please post comments that are ONLY related to the Minecraft: The Last Airbender plugin here. Secondly, bloodbending is a target controlling ability so when you hold SHIFT the target will be held in your bloodbending grip. (Originally set so only ops can perform this). The animation for entities being bloodbended is to float around in circular motions whilst in the grip however, you can still move them around with your cursor (still hold SHIFT) as they do this. If the bloodbender left-clicks whilst gripping something it will be launched in the direction of the cursor. As you SHIFT at a target they will flash red as if being hit to indicate your control on them. Avatar State bending is bending without previous limits and increased power. For example, airblast is much powerful and when something is caught in it will thrown over a distance of 100 blocks by the looks of it. When using the waterwall feature in surge the wall is much greater in size, raise earth is similar. Charged abilities no longer require charge and can be instantly executed from sneaking. Firejet and airshield is now a toggle therefore, they do not have any cooldowns. You gain super fast regeneration, faster running speed, higher jumping and I don't think chiblocking works on you. Those are some outstanding features of one in the Avatar State.

    @Asurakwesi: Go

    • Np: this is what is in the config:
    1. Tornado:
    2. Radius: 10.0
    3. Height: 25.0
    4. Range: 25.0
    5. Mob-Push-Factor: 1.0
    6. Player-Push-Factor: 1.0
    • Change the Player-Push-Factor: 1.0 to Player-Push-Factor: 1.3/1.4 that is much better, but I think it will not make the enemy go higher only futher away from you.

    Pemguin you do it again but I will explain: "the servers of MC are down not ours... All our servers have online mode to true that means that you need an account that is bought via the site: minecraft.net (this is also a kind of a server), so when this server/site is "down", OUR servers can't check if you bought the game, so it will say bad login which means:"You didn't buy it", and than you think... :( but I did, and yes you did but the servers can't check that so you have to wait till minecraft.net is back online and than!!! It will say again that you bought it! And you will be happy, but plz STFU now about that you can't join it and be patient!", The only weird this is that you still can login into minecraft... Weird...
