In an oddly a propos case of synchronicity, an Avatar crossover fic currently being released on the Pit of Voles has a very similar passage.
From Sokka's private thoughts:
And besides, we're talking Zuko and Toph. Two of the most badass benders
out there, and Zuko never goes anywhere without his swords. And… Toph. I
mean – taking her out? You'd need… gah, I dunno, an entire army of flying
mutant ninja were-lemurs!
…Except that flying mutant ninja were-lemurs would probably still get their
butts kicked, and then they'd take Toph to their secret ninja lair and make
her their queen, and he should probably stop there, because the world wasn't
ready for Toph, Tyrant Queen of Flying Mutant Ninja Were-Lemurs.
