* Aang: Since they can't kill off the KidHero, many [[PortmanteauCoupleName Zutara]] shippers make Aang so childish that he makes [[Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub Honey-sempai]] look like a man of deep ''gravitas''. Other shippers discounted Aang because he was 12 years old. They usually assigned a [[LikeBrotherAndSister big sister/little brother]] type relationship to Aang and Katara, villainizing neither and viewing their relationship as one that they would naturally grow out of as they got older, or claiming that a romance between them would be creepy. There's also the camp that claims that because Katara has a maternal personality towards the team a relationship with Aang would not work as a romance. People who like Katara in yuri ships often bash Aang for being "heteronormative" and "boring". Katara/Toph shippers often make Aang RonTheDeathEater to get him out of the way.

Some more extreme Zutara shippers, on the other hand, are ''brutal'' to Aang; treating him as a selfish, entitled asshole who forces himself on Katara and would glare at Zuko for so much as ''talking'' to her, or claiming he doesn't "understand" Katara the way Zuko does due to the conflict in "The Southern Raiders".

[[folder:Avatar the Last Airbender]]
The ATLA shipping wars were legendary. Seriously, [[ShipToShipCombat they're the poster series for this trope.]] Now let's reminisce on the [[FlameWar great battles]]:

SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' is also plagued by this trope. Three characters in particular seem to be getting a special amount of ship-related hate.

* Katara: Extreme Mai/Zuko and [[ToyShip Aang/Toph]] fans bash Katara as a CanonSue who became too good at waterbending quickly or being a "generic" animesque heroine. Some Maiko fans have a RealWomenDontWearDresses mentality and hate Katara for her TeamMom personality, preferring Mai's {{Goth}} {{Jerkass}} one because RuleOfCool. There is a great exaggeration of Katara's faults such as how she threatened Zuko once and would therefore be a horrible partner even though this was back when they were still enemies, and Mai is not exactly nice to Zuko in the first place. They have even written essays explaining that [[UnholyMatrimony Mai liked Zuko back when he was still evil]] whereas [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan Katara only liked Zuko after he became good]] which is why the Maiko ship is better. [[InsaneTrollLogic This obviously doesn't make much sense.]]

* Jin: Jin had quite a few attacks on her from a vocal section of the Zutara fans and even some early Maiko fans. Most of it called her a slut or a gold digger (even though she canonically didn't know Zuko was a prince), apparently because she is more endowed than most of the girls. Rage against her was relatively short lived -- it quickly became clear that she would not be a recurring character or have any lasting romantic interest in Zuko. The comics and viewing the series in retrospect has made many fans become more supportive of her because even if she isn't someone more popularly paired with Zuko such as [[LauncherOfAThousandShips Suki, Sokka, Katara, Aang, etc.]] she is still better than [[TheScrappy Mai]].

* Asami: This girl may never get a reprieve. Even after proving her loyalty to the Krew and her personal ideals by [[spoiler: going against her own beloved father]], some of the crazier sections of the Makorra fanbase complain about how "slutty" she is and even through the Book 1 finale kept insisting she would turn out to be an Equalist spy. Even though Asami has proven herself a good ally to Korra time and time again by fighting against her father and even though Asami stuck by her convictions despite Mako and Korra's ''aaaaaawkward'' treatment of her, there are still people who insist that Asami will "turn evil" in Book 2 because they're still upset that she anchored Makorra for a good portion of Book 1.

The series finale has her being bashed all over again for being a SatelliteLoveInterest after she [[spoiler: hooked up with Korra.]]



* Korra: And we're not even counting how ''Korra'' also took massive heat for daring to freely choose Mako instead of rejecting him in favor of other ships. Borra rabid fans who swear that "[[EntitledToHaveYou Bolin deserves Korra's affections because he's ~the nice one~]]" are specially bad in these regards.
