* FighterMageThief: When the Gaang was made up of three people, warrior-proud Sokka is the Fighter, healer Katara is the Mage, and wily Aang acts as the thief. As Aang begins to accept his powers as the Avatar, he becomes the Fighter of the group, while Sokka accepts [{{BadassNormal}} lacks the powerful bending of the other two]] and uses his tactics and luck to become the resident GuileHero who takes on the role of the Thief.

* ChildSoldier: Successfully led and commanded an army in the Battle of Yu Dao and fought on the front lines against Earth Kingdom forces as a [[AChildShallLeadThem 16- to 17-year-old boy king.]] Zuko's also seen in countless combat situations throughout the show, including skirmishes with army soldiers.
** It's implied that Zuko might've even seen action ''before'' he was banished - in "The Storm", a thirteen-year-old Zuko is seen wearing the armor of common soldiers, while in other flashbacks, a younger Zuko was wearing the red and gold silk of Fire Nation royalty. His firebending had also improved massively, to the point of Zuko feeling confident enough to challenge an old, experienced general (who was also a firebending master), and WordOfGod states that he was already a master swordsman at that point. And there has to be some reason that, out of all the times Zuko could've chosen to listen in on a war meeting and gain experience on how to run a country, he chose to do so then... and a recent experience on the battlefield seems like the perfect motivator.
** It's also implied in how Zuko conducts himself and his bending during combat - in "The Blue Spirit", even when Zuko was vastly outnumbered, he never hesitated. And unlike almost every other firebender (and even the other benders in the Gaang) in the show, Zuko is very careful with his fire, only ever accidentally harming something/someone in "The Western Air Temple", when Toph startled him from sleep - for all the Gaang likes to harp about Zuko "burning down Kyoshi Island", if you watch closely, you'll notice that none of Zuko's flames actually set anything on fire; the village burned both because of Zuko's soldiers and because Aang blew Zuko's fireballs ''into'' the buildings. And in real life, careful is what is seen from martial artists who know that they can actually hurt someone. Combine that with the fact that Zuko would've been in a lot of areas where firebenders aren't welcome during his banishment, and the fact that he often had to be smacked upside the head with the obvious, it's very possible that Zuko experienced lethal self-defense at some point. This is all in addition to the fact that Zuko was trained to be a conqueror/warlord from a young age, and was under the tutelage of The Dragon of the West, a renowned general who broke through a wall that had withstood a century of warfare. Really, Zuko experiencing full-blown war is depressingly plausible.

** A few years later, Ozai was fully prepared and willing [[OffingTheOffspring to murder his eight-year-old son in his sleep]] as a way to compensate for a mistake he made. Again, Zuko's death was only prevented by [[MamaBear his mother's intervention]] - and this time, Ursa was banished as a result, leaving Zuko alone with his father. Five years after this, Zuko is brutally scarred by his father and exiled [[SnipeHunt to find the century-missing, all-powerful Avatar.]] He eventually returns home, only to leave again - but not before his father mocks him and tries to shoot him full of lightning, marking the third time Ozai attempted [[OffingTheOffspring.]]

* {{TheFettered}}: Ask Zuko about honor and/or destiny. Then prepare yourself for the hours-long lecture and endorsement he'll have ready for you off the top of his head.

* DeadpanSnarker: Given that Zuko's the most ill-tempered character in the show, this is a given. He's actually a lot like Katara in that respect: particularly sarcastic in books one and two, less so for a part of book three, and then more so for the other half.

* InstantExpert: Katara goes from being so poor at waterbending that she accidentally freezes her brother to being one of the world's greatest waterbenders in one season. She did this in under 4 months [[note]]The episode before she finds The Waterbending scroll, which first lets her learn waterbending, is the winter solstice -- December. By Episode 8 of Season 2, we learn it's spring, meaning anywhere between March and early June, though it seems closer to the early spring, and the summer solstice is not before Season 3. Either way, Katara is declared a master long before that Season 2 episode.[[/note]], while Waterbending is described as something that can take years to master.

It's implied that she has always had a lot of innate talent as a waterbender, but since she was the only one left in her tribe, there was no one to teach her how to use her skills properly.

* CosmicPlaything: He's so sure he's this, he shouts SmiteMeOhMightySmiter on top of a mountain during a thunderstorm. He [[spoiler:wants to be struck by lighting to practice redirection, and doesn't get his wish. His track record would suggest that at any other time he ''would'' have been struck]]. Given all the crap he's put up with, he just might be right.
