* PhysicalGod: Any fully-realized Avatar, but especially one in If you manage to push him into the [[SuperMode Avatar State.State]], you've lost the fight, if not your ''life''. Even a master with the power of a hundred suns can't defeat an Avatar fully in tap with Raava's spirit.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Retcon}}: The main series never explained what the Avatar State was or what made the avatar so special. Only a tie-in game briefly spoke of The Avatar being the spirit of the planet in a human body. ''Legend of Korra'' book 2 then spent a two-parter establishing that the Avatars (Roku, Aang, Korra herself etc.) are all basically {{Heroic Host}}s for Raava, the spirit of light and peace, and when the current host dies, Raava takes them with her to the next one.

* GodInHumanForm: The Avatar is a reincarnation of Wan, a human who bonded his soul to the spirit of life, Raava. All Avatars can tap into her power by entering the Avatar State, which also allows them to access all the knowledge she has and all the knowledge of Wan's incarnations.

Since then, the Avatar has also maintained equilibrium between the four nations of the physical world.

Added DiffLines:

* TheFederation: In the larger scope of things, Earth Kingdom is more of a collection of states with the Monarch of Ba-Sing Se as the influential leader rather than a single authority. As a result, many states like Omashu maintained their own rulers while connecting with other states via common culture.
* TheKingdom: Despite its fair share of GeneralRipper and SleazyPolitician, Earth Kingdom is generally mostly benevolent at least until [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Hou-Ting]] succeeded the throne.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: While the political situation of the Earth Kingdom (particularly in the capital of Ba Sing Se) parallels that of the Qing Dynasty's last days, its culture draws from every Chinese dynasty; Toph's family wears Tang-era clothing, Aunt Wu's usage of oracle bones for divination comes from the Shang Dynasty, etc. It also has areas influenced by Vietnamese tribal cultures (the Foggy Swamp Tribe, despite their Mississippi Delta accent), pre-Meiji Japan (Kyoshi Island), the Gobi Desert (the Shi Wong desert), and Korea (as seen with the hanbok worn by Song in the episode "Cave of Two Lovers"), each paralleling a real-life tributary held by Imperial China. [[spoiler:After the Earth Kingdom falls, the parallels extend to early 20th-century China, with warlords and bandits running loose until a revolutionary nationalist despot is finally able to reunite the country.]]

And finally, in the sequel series The Legend of Korra, we meet an Earth Kingdom villain clearly based off the Chinese communist revolutionary Chairman Mao Zedong.
