* BewareTheNiceOnes: They were friendly, easy-going monks that'll [[SacredHospitality never turn away a hungry guest,]] had no military and according to ''Turf Wars,'' accepted people of all sexual orientations without judgment, ''but'' Gyatso's remains prove they took ''plenty'' of [[TakingYouWithMe Fire Nation soldiers down with them]] during the genocide and Aang implied it could only be due to an ambush they went down or they'd still be around.

** Sublty deconstructed as Aang is initially treated as the sole person capable of saving the world and his word is treated as law, while Korra is met with resistance such as [[spoiler: the World leaders not including her in war strategies against Kuvira due to her not being fully recovered. Only when the situation became so bad that they had to defer to her wisdom]]. ''However,'' the deconstruction [[OlderThanTheyThink actually began in Aang's era]] as while he was still respected and word treated as law, people, such as the [[JerkHasAPoint fisherman]] weren't afraid to [[WhatTheHellHero call him out on his absence]] compared to ''only'' the most audacious/evil challenging The Avatar, so this was on the eve of society getting increasingly modern/secular enough to not be so in awe of one.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: Like Imperial Japan, the Fire Nation is an authoritarian volcanic archipelago state technologically superior to its neighbors, with a coal-based military-industrial complex that justifies its conquests with the premise of "sharing prosperity" and uses methods like Emperor worship (the Fire Lord in their case) and schoolbook propaganda to control its people. However, its material culture is primarily Chinese. The Fire Nation also utilizes elements of Thai architecture, most noticeably in the roofing. The geology of the Fire Nation capital was based on Iceland, which may seem a little weird until you remember that Iceland is one of the most tectonically active places on the planet.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: The Fire Nation prides itself on its militarism and use of martial force. This dates back to their ancestors in Avatar Wan's era who often ventured out to conquer territory after harnessing firebending from Lion Turtles.

* TheChosenOne: Treated as one as far as the world is concerned, with each nation having the same, or similar methods to recognize the him or her when he/she is born, and during the War was treated as a symbol of hope to be revered or destroyed. [[spoiler: A tribe feuding for a hundred years took Aang's bald-face lie at face value simply because he claimed to know the tribe's forefounders.]] Avatars are commonly involved with, connected to or directly responsible for history changing events and important individuals. On top of all that, their destiny is to battle Vaatu every ten thousand years to prevent a dark-spirit apocalypse.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: The Southern Water Tribe borrows from various Polynesian and Native American cultures, while the architecture of the Northern Water Tribe capital also adds a heavy dose of Chinese and bits of Nordic influence.

The Avatar's mission in life, a task set forth by Wan himself, is to maintain balance of the world. This job includes bringing peace between groups in conflict, or defeating threats to world peace such as imperialist tyrants bent on conquest. The Avatar is also the spiritual leader of the world; due to being half spirit, the Avatar is most powerful in the Spirit World, as opposed to other humans who normally are powerless in comparison. The Avatar must master the four elements and attain a certain degree of balance within themselves; they are then referred to as a "fully realized Avatar".

* MessianicArchetype: Each avatar is a reincarnated man or woman who possess incredible power and connected to a spiritual plane of existence, and in every life has faced off a tyrannical or amoral enemy. Their advice is treated with near-religious worship and world leaders are willing to listen to the advice of a ''10 year-old'' with no knowledge of war or even a complete history of the last century.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: The Air Nomads are primarily based on Shaolin and Tibetan Buddhist monks and their slaughter and near-extinction parallels near-extinction parallels that of the invasion and sinification of Tibet by the Chinese Communist Party.
