* ForegoneConclusion: This will ultimately end in the founding of [[CityOfAdventure Republic City]], as seen in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', or at the very least the first steps toward that end. Additionally, though Zuko had at that point not appeared in ''The Legend of Korra'' yet, he had been confirmed by WordOfGod to be alive, Aang will never have to make good on his promise.

* StopWorshippingMe: Aang is quite upset when he encounters members of the Avatar Aang fan club who wears clothes in his style and even have tattooed arrows like his own onto to themselves. While he acknowledges that they might do it in reverence of him, he still tells them that they have no right to do so as they do not fully understand the symbolism behind these things, and he feels the gesture reduces the Air Nomad culture into a "game". In the end, though, after seeing them putting their lives at risk on the battlefield in the name of peace, he decides that their hearts are in the right place so he decides to become their teacher in the ways and philosophy of the Air Nomads.

-->'''Suki:''' It's so dark down here. I can hardly see anything!\\
'''Sokka:''' ''Shhh!'' Toph's really touchy about that!

** This is even acknowledged ''in-universe''; simply returning the stolen territory wouldn't work because numerous multi-ethnic families have formed during the war, so it would either break up those families or expel people from homes they ''did'' have a hereditary right to. On top of ''that'', in many cases the territory in question was a lot less valuable(to the point that the Earth Kingdoms didn't ''care'' about "losing" it a hundred years ago) prior to the Fire Nation industrializing it, so "returning" the territory wouldn't be fair either. In the end, [[spoiler:the Fire Nation and the Earth Kingdoms ''both'' surrender the territory in favor of building an independent fifth Nation.]] [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Seventy years later]], [[spoiler:season 4 BigBad Kuvira justifies the '''biggest battle in recorded history''' over reclaiming that territory.]]

* WhiteMansBurden: ''Fire Man's'' Burden in this case. Despite stridently rejecting the idea that the war was the Fire Nation's way of sharing its greatness with the rest of the world, Zuko comes around to thinking that the war accomplished something positive in the colonies. He defends Yu Dao, social inequalities and all, to Aang and Katara in terms reminiscent of the White Man's Burden. It very much mirrors Rockefeller's idealogy of common wealth; even if wealth is not shared equally among all parties, if the standard of living has become higher for all people involved, than it is fair to say that everyone has benefitted.

* AsleepForDays: Zuko is under immense stress and can barely sleep, which only gets worse as the plot progresses. When [[spoiler:the Yu Dao conflict is resolved and it turns out he wasn't turning into his father]], he promptly collapses. Later, he mentions that he feels like he's been asleep for weeks; Aang replies that it's only been ''four days''.

* RealityEnsues: The long-term consequences of a century-long war in which many people died and some land changed hands will not simply go away because one of your friends has replaced the EvilOverlord in charge of the aggressor nation. Even if both sides have well-intentioned individuals in charge, there is still the potential for conflict.

** Doubly so [[FantasyCounterpartCulture given what the Earth Kingdom is based off of]]. China does ''not'' recognize the concept of dual citizenship, and still believes heavily in Ethnic Nationalism, that is to say, you are who you are born, and [[ImmigrantPatriotism any feelings otherwise]] are [[CategoryTraitor traitorous]] and [[NoTrueScotsman false]].
