Wan: If you and Vaatu has the same fight every ten thousand years, why isn't one of you destroy the other?

Raava: He cannot destroy light any more than I can destroy darkness. One cannot exist without the other. Even if I defeat Vaatu in this encounter, darkness will grow inside me until he emerges again. The same will hold true if Vaatu defeats me.

~ Raava, regarding that light and darkness (symbolizing good and evil) cannot exist without the other.
Vaatu cannot win. Do not give in to ten thousand years of darkness. You are the Avatar.
~ Raava encouraging Korra to keep on fighting.

Raava is the spirit of peace and light and, after fusing with Wan, the Avatar Spirit. She is one of the oldest known spirits, having existed over ten thousand lifetimes before the appearance of the first humans. She and Vaatu, the spirit of darkness and chaos, spent much of their existence combating each other, at least since the Harmonic Convergence in 19,829 BG, with neither able to fully vanquish the other. Even if Raava were to destroy Vaatu and usher in a new era of peace, what little darkness existed in Raava would magnify until Vaatu was reborn and burst forth, beginning the cycle again. The reverse would happen to Vaatu if he were victorious over Raava.

During the Harmonic Convergence in 9,829 BG, Raava permanently merged her essence with Wan's, creating the Avatar. However, during the next convergence in 171 AG, Raava lost her connection to Wan and all the Avatars after him (including Aang), but was able to merge again with Korra, recreating the Avatar and starting the Avatar Cycle anew.


In some ways, Vaatu share some similarities with Anu from Diablo series.

  • Both are trapped with a battle with their dark equivalent(Vaatu for Raava and Tathamet for Anu).
  • Both Raava and Anu represent Light and Peace
  • Both Raava and Anu are the first beings to exist in their respective franchises
  • Both Raava and Anu can move their essences into something else

Differences with Anu

  • Raava can ressurect herself after being destroyed, while Anu cannot, as Anu's essence split into Angels with he's positive aspects becoming Imperius, Tyrael, Auriel, Malthael and Ithreal, and the rest of it's essence transformed into Heaven since his destruction.
  • Raava and Vaatu are separate entities, while Anu and Tahthamet used to be one single being due to Tathtamet's true nature was embodiment of all negative inside Anu.
  • Raava and Anu's final fate after their conflict with their dark counterpart was very different. Raava merged her essence with Wan creating the first Avatar, Anu and Tathamet effectively destroyed each other, though their separated essence still fought each other
