This trope is played straighter when facing Katara, as she's already a full-fledged master, and any tricks Azula at the time had amounted to nothing]].

Even as Ozai's wife, Ursa was a caring mother to their children. (Though she had considerable problems dealing with [[CreepyChild Azula.]]) She was one of the few people who consistently supported Zuko, and it came as a hard blow to him when she suddenly disappeared.
