*** That could just be the fact that [[spoiler:Kuzon]] was so familiar with them. After all, they were sort of like adopted children. Shirong probably had less than a few days to analyze [[spoiler:Ty Lee]]'s fighting style.

*** That could just be the fact that [[spoiler:Kuzon]] was so familiar with them. After all, they were sort of like adopted children. Shirong probably had less than a few days to analyze [[spoiler:Ty Lee]]'s fighting style. As well, Shirong and Zuko were reduced to hand-to-hand and bending at the time [[spoiler:and Zuko was out cold]], which was bad to use against Ty Lee, who's trained for that stuff. [[spoiler:Kuzon used a sword, which is extremely effective against the weaponless.]]

** Min Wen & Jia are [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Xander and Cordelia]]: there's some speculation that Suyin is based on Willow, or that she and Jinhai are [[RurouniKenshin Kaoru and Yahiko]].

** Vathara has a ''huge'' thing for claws. Has given them to people in ways that involve Zuko (and Kenshin, in two other universes) being part dragon, some [[FanFic/ProjectTatterdemalion AU space version]] of the Manga/{{Bleach}} cast becoming [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot octopus-cat-alien-hybrid]] survivors of TheVirus, some ''bizarre'' gene-sharing with Godzilla, [[NomDeGuerre Battousai]] being a psychic dragon-tooth demon sword which possesses the mild-mannered [[RurouniKenshin Kenshin]], genetic tampering on the ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' cast by [[Series/StargateSG1 Goa'uld]], and a ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'' AU in which Zack and Cloud [[SerialEscalation become part griffin because of a conversation Aerith has with a sentient gargoyle]]. These are all considered good things.

* ShownTheirWork: Waterbenders being considered blessed by the spirits is a plot point, but not an invented one: [[http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Writing_in_the_World_of_Avatar#Bending the Canon pinyin for the bending arts]] translate so that Earth and Fire are "abilities," while Air and Water are divine.

* {{Xenofiction}}: The CentralTheme is that ''absolutely no-one in the story'' is a human as the reader comprehends humans - specifically, ''[[TheEvilsOfFreeWill no-one has truly free will]]''. In Embers, ''every'' character except Aang(who has [[YouCantFightFate even worse baggage of his very own]]) has some kind of RestrainingBolt, MagicallyBindingContract and ExplosiveLeash InTheBlood which gives their respective leadership both subtle and ''lethal'' control over their actions and thoughts, and ''every'' culture has both a form of MindControl and MoreThanMindControl - and everyone and every culture not only [[IThoughtEveryoneCouldDoThat thinks that theirs is normal and any other type is monstrous]], but only their leadership is likely to be fully aware of their own culture's controls. And since they never talk about those secret control functions, a lot of people have no understanding how and why they work - ''even those from the same culture''. A key part of resolving the conflicts Vathara puts in place is everyone ''finally'', '''after aeons of interaction''', gaining widespread understanding - both internally and externally - of those functions so they can avoid setting them off or abusing them in the future. Vathara never really talks about how those mind control functions express themselves in multiracial pairings, either.
