Template:Organization infoboxThe Triple Threat Triads is a gang that operates in Republic City, consisting of three male benders, a waterbender, a firebender, and an earthbender. The gangsters use their abilities to rob citizens of Republic City of their money.
When the trio made a routine visit to a phonograph shop to collect money from the shop's owner, the man informed them that business had been slow that week, and he could not pay what he owed. One of the gangsters replied, saying that he couldn't "guarantee that he [could] protect this fine establishment". The shop owner offered a free phonograph to compensate for the money, but the gang did not accept, and only threatened him once again. As one the gangsters warned the owner, Korra intervened to stop the crime.
The gang simply laughed at her, commenting that they were about to put her "in the hospital". In response, the Avatar threatened to put them in the hospital, which was followed by attacks from each of the gang members. After being assaulted, they attempted to drive away in their car, only to have the vehicle flipped by Korra, using earthbending. Metalbender cops then arrived to apprehend the criminals and Korra.
