** The episode climaxed in one long Crowning Moment of Awesome for Katara, starting with the line, "No! I will never, EVER turn my back on people who need me!"

** From the same episode, Hakoda tries to start a riot unsuccesfully. Chit Sang appears and Sokka asks him if he wouldn't happen to know how to start one. Chit Sang just non-chalantly says "A Riot? Please...", picks up a random prisoner as he walks towards the gathered prisoners, shouts "RIOT!" while lifting said prisoner above his head...and a successful riot starts.

* [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheStorm "The Storm"]]: When the4 ship is about to be struck by lightning, Iroh redirects it.
* [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheSiegeOfTheNorthPart2 "The Siege of The North Part 2"]]: When Zhao threatens to kill the spirit, Iroh tells him "Whatever you do to that spirit, I'll unleash on you ten-fold! Let it go now!". When Zhao does it anyway, [[UnstoppableRage he goes berserk]] and just [[CurbStompBattle annihilates]] four fire-benders by himself in seconds. [[OhCrap Zhao just slowly backs away when he saw that display.]]
* [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheAvatarState "The Avatar State"]]: In their first encounter with Azula, Iroh takes on a whole royal escort single-handily (without Firebending) then [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomps]] ''Azula'' in about a second.

** That moment when he becomes empowered by the comet. Without him making a single gesture, a ring of fire appears around him and his comrades. It steadily grows in intensity, until at last he condenses it into a ball and sends it through the wall.

* [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheSouthernAirTemple "The Southern Air Temple"]]: Zuko defeating Zhao, a smug, experienced commander at least twice his age in an Agni Kai, specifically by not doing anything flashy. Just two episodes ago, Iroh was insisting he needed to master basic forms before moving onto advanced techniques. During the Agni Kai, Zuko appears to be beaten by Zhao using exactly that simple form, only for him to get up and respond in kind. Even in his third episode this villain' is being shown in an intelligent and, through the SwordOverHead moment, admirable light. As an added bonus, it was a ShirtlessScene.
* [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheWaterbendingScroll "The Waterbending Scroll"]]: Zuko is pretty awesome in the one episode past the beggining of the series where he's a legitimately threatening villain. He effortlessly physically overpowers Katara and ties her to a tree, manipulates the pirates into helping him find Aang by threatening to burn their precious scroll, and is smart enough to see through Sokka's TalkingYourWayOut ploy. Even Aang didn't realize what Sokka was trying to do!

** Zuko's first successful redirection of lightning, Not just regular lightning. It was double-strength lightning, fired at him by the most powerful firebender in the world.
* [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheSouthernRaiders "The Southern Raiders"]]: Zuko's fight with Azula for pretty much the first time ever he's fighting his fire-bending-prodigy-daddy's-favourite-child-magnificent-bastard sister on equal terms. Whilst on top of an moving airship, after jumping onto it from another one. He matches Azula blow for blow, and holds a rather even fight against her! Looking closer, one realizes that this is their first one-on-one since Zuko learned the original art of Firebending, which didn't rely on being fueled by rage and hatred... and this was only a few episodes after Zuko just learned about it!

** Toph launcheing herself, Sokka, and Suki on board the nearest airship.
** Toph metalbending a door into a full-body suit and using the contents of an airship's control room to take out the crew, all while dodging fireblasts and jumping around the metal cockpit like SpiderMan. The awesomeness really comes from the fact that to do what she does in that scene, she has to be metalbending with every motion. To repeat, she has to perform, with perfect dexterity, a feat that was thought to be impossible before she invented it, every second]. Oh, and she started this by knocking "ShaveAndAHaircut." With the last knock replaced by the crash of her blowing the door across the room.

* [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderSozinsCometPart4AvatarAang "Sozin's Comet Part 4: Avatar Aang"]]: Suki Just as more benders arrive and Sokka and Toph accept death, an airship lunges out of nowhere and IMPALES their airship, and they fall onto it. It was hijacked by Suki- who was last seen on a fragment of a sinking airship.

** Sokka's willingness to take on Ozai, the BigBad at the height of his power, who posed a serious challenge to even the Avatar, and Sokka is a BadassNormal at best, if Aang couldn't get there in time. And he was willing to fight him. Alright, he would have had backup from fellow BadassNormal Suki and CuteBruiser Toph, but that takes some straight up testicular elephantiasis. And how calmly he realizes it. Sokka asks Iroh what he, Toph and Suki should be doing when the group split up at the camp. Iroh asks 'him, and he simply states they need to do what they can do, together, to tackle Ozai. Once standing on the airship he says "Fire Lord Ozai, here we come." with a wonderfully determined/fierce expression on his face.
** Sokka diverting the crew of an airship to the bomb bay ''by telling them it was a crewmember's birthday and then ejecting them. Bonus points for it actually being one of the crew member's birthday.

** When Mai taunts Katara, who had been Chi-Blocked by Ty Lee, by asking him how she expect's to fight without her bending. Sokka knokcs the knife out of her hand with his boomerang and tells her that he seems to manage.

** The entirety of his escape attempt with the Blue Spirit where he uses his [[BlowYouAway airbending]] and practically [[CurbStompBattle blows away all the of the prison guards that stood in their way]] Granted that he is the avatar which allowed him to master airbending at a very young age and would also increase his airbending powers a lot.Just goes to show you how powerful airbending can actually be.
