** Where to even begin? Azula cements her place in villain history here. First, single-handedly taking over Ba Sing Se in under 48 hours by promising Long Feng an opportunity to take the throne, and exploiting the alliance to sway the loyalties of the Dai Li to herself. Which also brings about this gem of an exchange:

** Finally, during the last fight, Aang realizes Katara and he can't beat Azula, Zuko and [[EliteMooks the Dai Li]] without some serious power. Aang goes into the Avatar State and rises into the air, encased in a pillar of light. Katara looks on with admiration and awe, the music gets upbeat and [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome seriously epic]], and it looks like we're about to see a repeat of [[CurbStompBattle the Book One finale]]... and then [[HeroKiller Azula]] fries him with a bolt of lightning, in the middle of the transformation sequence. While everyone else just gawked, she hit Aang with her most powerful attack, at the exact moment he was most vulnerable. It's nightmarish and shocking (even the soundtrack sounds stunned and frightened), and it's exactly what a [[MagnificentBastard cunning, dangerous villain]] should do. Honestly, the episode could probably be renamed "[[TheChessmaster Azula's]] [[TheBadGuyWins Finest Hour]]".

** Before that, there's Suki making it clear she's taking exactly ''none'' of Sokka's sexism.
-->'''Sokka:''' There's no way a bunch of girls took us out.
-->'''Suki:''' "A bunch of girls", huh? ''(grabs Sokka)'' The unagi's gonna eat well tonight.
* ''The Serpent's Pass:'' Leaping into the water to save Toph before Sokka could.



** Followed by her being one of only two characters to fight Ty Lee hand-to-hand without being paralyzed (the only other one was Sokka).

* [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheWarriorsOfKyoshi "The Warriors of Kyoshi"]]: When Aang figures out he's the reason their little peaceful island is being burned to the ground, and so he decides to leave to allow Zuko to follow him and leave the island alone. But not before Aang jumps off of Appa in midair and into the water [[{{Badass}} to ride a giant water spitting dragon that he ran from in the beginning of the episode]] just to put out the fires and douse Zuko and his cavalry. It ends with Aang noting how stupid the act was to Katara and her agreeing, but also with [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming her giving Aang a big hug, obviously glad that he survived the ordeal]]. Good Stuff.

* "[[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderAvatarDay Avatar Day]]": Avatar Kyoshi showing us just how powerful a fully realized Avatar is. In the space of a few seconds, she humiliates the tyrant she is fighting, splits off part of the mainland, and uses Airbending to blow it out to sea, creating Kyoshi Island. Avatar Kyoshi, people - so much of a {{Badass}} she can stand her ground even while retreating.

** Masters Pakku and Piandao fighting against Firebenders on ice. Piandao's performance is doubly {{badass}}, given that the Firebenders are all powered up by the Comet, while he [[BadassNormal has no powers at all]].

** Let's not forget that he agreed with Aang that the moon is important to everyone, including the Fire Nation. This is one of the first times where he sides with the Avatar, proving that the Fire Nation has people with good hearts and strong morale.
