* BlessedWithSuck: Sure, he's the Avatar, a godlike human being who can manipulate all four elements to balance out the world. Sure, he's the bridge between the Spirit World and the regular world. Yeah, okay, he's the spirit of the planet all rolled into one dude. His past lives worked out just fine being the Avatar. Unfortunately for Aang, he doesn't get to wait until his 16th birthday to be told that he's the Avatar. Nope, some grumpy old dudes tell him when he's ''twelve'' because they fear a war is soon to break out. They make plans to take Aang away from his guardian, so Aang runs away...and gets frozen inside an iceberg for 100 years while a war sweeps across the world while he's gone. Then when he gets out of the iceberg, he has to fix everything! By himself! With a bunch of scary guys trying to capture him! And he's 12. Plus, the first thing he learns about the new world he's entered is that he is [[LastOfHisKind the only Air Nomad left]] since all of the others were wiped out by the Fire Nation in the opening moves of the war, who were the priority targets due to having the Avatar. Finally, there's what comes with being the Avatar: [[AllYourPowersCombined the ability to draw on the power and experiences of all past Avatars]]. It seems good... But until Aang learns how to control it the Avatar State manifests when he's in grave danger or furious beyond control, has the power of an EldritchAbomination and absolutely no care for collateral damage. There is a ''good'' reason why Aang had nightmares about the Avatar State for a while... Additionally, whereas every other Avatar (that we know of) had years to learn how to bend all the elements (Roku mentioned taking roughly a decade), Aang has less than one year. Oh, and even after he can control the Avatar State there's a downside (for the world, at least): if he dies while in it, the Avatar Cycle is broken. No more Avatar. And given he's the spirit of the ''world'' and that killing the spirit of the moon made the moon disappear until it was resurrected...

* NotHyperbole: When she says that she is the greatest earthbender in the world, you better believe she can back that claim up. This is the girl who duelled King Bumi, who literally had a hundred years of experience on her, and she fought him to a draw! At age 12! Even earlier, she figured out how to subvert a WeaksauceWeakness of Earthbending by figuring out [[ExtraOreDinary Metalbending]], which none in history had done before. [[spoiler: In WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra, this claim ''still'' applies.]]

* YouKnowImBlackRight: Or in this case "You Know I'm Blind, Right?" The rest of the Gaang (especially Sokka) tends to forget about her disability, leading to [[DeadpanSnarker many of Toph's great one-liners.]] [[note]]Though to be fair, it ''is'' easy to forget due to her DisabilitySuperpower. Her constant "unfocused stare" and visibly cloudy cataracts are pretty much the only clue you get most of the time.[[/note]]

* CrazyJealousGuy: In ''The Beach'', all it takes for Zuko to lose his cool is seeing some guy flirting with his girlfriend.

* CrazyJealousGuy: In ''The Beach'', all it takes for Zuko to lose his cool is seeing some guy show the slightest bit of interest in his girlfriend. When Ruon Jian invites Mai to the party, Zuko gets immediately upset and storms towards the guy until Azula stops him. When Ruon Jian is flirting with his girlfriend.Mai at the party, Zuko grabs the guy and spins him away, orders him to not talk to Mai, and when the guy tries to get Zuko to calm down, Zuko shoves him '''clear across the room''' to smash into a vase.
