Ming-Hua is the third character to have a physical disability, with the others being Combustion Man and Toph. Having been detained in a volcanic cell that deprives her of any sources of water, she gets liberated by Zaheer and Ghazan, and personally escorts P’Li out of her jailhouse. During the fight with Mako, her defensive maneuvers deplete her water tendrils. While retreating, Ming-Hua trips over a protruding crystal, causing her to fall back and lose the little water she has left. As Mako corners her and points out it that it’s over, Ming-Hua jumps into a pool of water in a cave below and fashions eight tendrils in an attempt to overwhelm her opponent. No longer defenseless, she lashes out at Mako with a series of whips, though he retaliates with a lightning bolt aimed toward the pool, electrifiying her and resulting in her immediate death.
