As we all know about the television animated series “Avatar: The Last Airbender” screened by Nickelodeon from February 2005 to July 2008 in 3 seasons.
But we are here to share about one of its characters, The Boulder, the paradigmatic earthbending wrestler.
The character of “The Boulder” was originally based on Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The story of Avatar: The Last Airbender revolves around Aang and his friends who left no stone unturned to bend the four elements- Air, Water, Earth, and Fire to become an Avatar and defeating Fire Lord Ozai and bring immense peace and balance to the world.
Here is a glimpse of The Boulder:
During the earth bending tournament, Aang met Toph Beifong while she was wrestling with The Boulder disguised as The Blind Bandit. Want to know about the superpowers of Aang?
Well, Aang was the 112-year-old last Airbender. He was into the iceberg for 96 years, that was the reason he looked like a 16-year-old kid. His partner was Katara.
Toph vs The Boulder:
The Boulder first appeared in episode 6 of season 2 as “The Blind Bandit”. He was the one who attracted the attention of Team Avatar by fighting with The Giant Bad Hippo is an earthbending championship and helped him conquer Fire Nation in later episodes. It is proved that how powerful The Boulder was right!!!
The unique part of the trait of Boulder was to rent for himself as the third person, amusing his audience in the crowd with his immoderate wrestling style until he was defeated by Toph Beifong.
From his wrestling style and his muscular and vigorous body, he was often referred to as a wrestler, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The production team has worked very hard to give an animated appearance to the iconic wrestler The Rock as The Boulder by having similarities like strong, vigorous, and muscular bodies. As the personality of Rock in the wrestling ring, The Boulder is an attractive but very self-proudly and swaggy kind of character.
The character of The Boulder was voiced by Mick- Foley, a wrestler being Johnson to be the first choice to give his voice but he denied due to some reason. Alas!
