*** Or we can take a third option and say that the animator wasn't familiar with the character. Toph had only appeared in two episodes prior to episode 29. The majority of the animation was outsourced to JM Animation, DR Movie, and MOI Animation, all studios in South Korea, so it's entirely possible that a worker looked at the storyboard and tried to fix what he perceived as a mistake.

* So, why isn't the Fire Nation as proactive at capturing the heroes, especially in later seasons(particularly Season 2)? If anything, all Fire Nation personnel do is just wait for the Gaang to run into them, then they skirmish them, and lose. They only run into them by chance without really expecting them. That's not very coordinated, let alone good preparation. Why don't they, for example, pull {{Batman Gambit}}s or set up traps to draw them out of hiding, which sounds like Azula's thing? While rebellion is inevitable, the Gaang is more principled than other cells, and they present a specific threat; I highly doubt Ozai or Azula would not be concerned with what their officers allow them to represent by failing to stop them--hope. The Gaang's actions have no doubt led to whispers about them in the streets, and in time, such whispers would spark relief in something other than the strength and security of the Fire Nation, and that is something Azula cannot have.

** Some of Koh's faces resembled masks. They were probably other spirits, but they could just as well have been masks. Some masks only exist to portray an emotion (think comedy and tragedy). Then, why would someone wear an emotional mask if it could be taken by Koh. Or, would wearing a mask in itself be a sign of fear?

*** Or maybe it's the opposite and she doesn't want to creep everyone out with her almost blank slate mask.

** It is, watch the finale -- Aang, in the Avatar State, sends five fireblasts out simultaneously, while Ozai can only manage three at a time.

* Another Koh question: How does someone survive after having their face taken by Koh? I mean, certain parts of the face, like the nose and mouth, are needed for such things as respiration and eating.

* I wasn't quite sure where to put this because it bugs me on so many levels, so here goes: what the hell was going on at the end of "The Chase"? So Azula "surrenders" (and no one sees through it), then she hits [[BadassGrandpa Iroh]] with lightning, who so far was the only person in the series to stand up to her and redirect her lightning, a technique only he knew. When he falls, Aang, Zuko Katara and Toph bend their elements at her(which for Toph really doesn't make much sense). So Azula shields herself with... fire? How does that work? Then the whole [[CaptainPlanet Captain Planet]] nightmare explodes(?!?), Azula disappears, [[YouFailPhysicsForever and the whole town is on fire]]. So, uh, what part of this makes sense?

**But going back to the original question: maybe is a case of unreliable narrator, for anyone in that situation months of captivity or even a few years can feel like decades, also Hama could just making the Fire Nation even worst. It is unlikely that they really kept the prisoners that long.

For Buddhism an Avatar or more commonly call a Bodhisattva, is a enlighten being that, again, reincarnates or manifests as a physical being. Buddhists have no gods in the religious sense, so the closest they have to deities are the Bodhisattvas. Gautama Buddha, for example, is considered one of this in Mahayana and Vajrarayana Buddhism. The Dalai Lama is an Avatar or Bodhisattva or the Buddha Avalokitesvara, the Panchen Lama and other many high rank Buddhist masters are generally considered Bodhisattvas of some Buddhist deity. Tibetan Buddhism is probably the branch with the highest number of Bodhisattvas, but their existence is common in all branches. \\\
