* {{Chickification}}: Katara gets hit with a case of this. Where the series depicts her as highly talented bender capable of going toe-to-toe with fairly skilled benders despite having no training, the film version blunders her attempts at bending so often that it renders her nearly completely useless and a couple of her defining moments of bravery and compassion from the series were given to Aang.

* InformedDeformity: Zuko's "disfiguring" scar is much less comically large in this than it was in the show. It looked like part of his face was burned off in the series, while here it looks like he forgot to put sunblock under his eye or something.

** Aang, a happy-go-lucky and eager kid in the series, is a quiet and somewhat angsty boy in the film.

** During their escape it take's six earthbenders several seconds to move then throw a small rock at a firebender. A feat that, in the series could be accomplished by a single earthbender in an instant.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: Several. The most famous is in the retelling of the episode "Imprisoned". In the show, the Earthbenders are trapped in a metal ship out at sea, far away from any sources of earth to bend. In the movie, they're imprisoned in a camp on land, which would be like building a prison and then giving all the prisoners assault rifles with infinite ammunition... and then the prisoners not using them for no adequately explained reason.

** The Firebenders in the movie need existing fire to bend, meaning they could potentially be weakened or defeated by extinguishing the defenders' fires. This wouldn't stand out so much if one of the characters didn't actually suggest it as a tactic, which nobody follows through on at all.

* BrokenAesop: The film muddies the motivations and fate of Admiral Zhao. In the original, Zhao [[spoiler:murdered the Moon Spirit]] strictly to de-power his targeted enemies and secure easy victory for his forces. In the movie, he is now trying for some vague idea of freeing Humans from the spirits' power, declaring that with his act, they are now the gods. He is the villain, so his already villainous act should now also look blatantly blasphemous. However, his final fate is also changed, from in the original series being [[spoiler:dragged to his doom by the enraged Ocean Spirit]] to in the movie meeting his end by [[spoiler:being caught and drowned in floating water by a team of Northern Waterbenders]]. So Zhao declares his contempt for the Spirits, and his fate is changed to be taken down by men. So was he blasphemous, a rebel, or something entirely different?
