* In the video game, Zuko replaces Katara as TheNarrator. Unless he's somehow omnipotent, how does know about events like how Aang was found?

*** Given that benders have to take a few seconds to build up their chi, a quick non-bender probably could do so.

* So, apparently they're planning to make the sequel. Nonwithstanding why they'd want to do that when the original tanked so hard, how will they manage it? They cut Bumi, the Kyoshi Warriors, the Freedom Fighters, and several other people who would go on to play important parts in the next season.

** First of all, that little rock was NOT floating, it was being ''bent'', and it never stopped touching the table. It doesn't need to be explained. Different levels of imbalanced emotion effect the way the elements around a bender are subtly manipulated, just like the cartoon. Mild imbalanced emotions will only be capable of manipulating ''small'' samples of elements, and even then it might be too subtle for anyone to care, ''unless you're a banished prince trying to find the master of all four elements''. On the other hand, EXTREME imbalanced emotions (like Cartoon!Zuko getting angry in a room full of candles while meditating, or Cartoon!Katara getting furious next to an iceberg or inside a room made entirely of ice) can be strong enough to cause devastation in the area if not properly managed or relaxed... Nobody knows what the purpose of the test is, otherwise Iroh wouldn't have been so secretive when explaining it to Aang. And obviously, Aang at the time would never be expected to make an anvil-sized boulder stand upright, or expand an entire bed of flames, or be the obvious cause of rippling/waves in a big bowl full of water. That's why Zuko and Iroh used ''small'' samples of elements, because those objects have more physical freedom and will therefore be easier to manipulated with mild emotion. Zuko and Iroh didn't even need the little rock to stand upright, or the little puddle of water to form into a perfect circle. They both watch the element samples closely, and even the tiniest hint of unnatural movement will show them whether someone is the Avatar or not. If the elements hadn't been bent so quickly after placed in front of him, it's safe to presume that Zuko and Iroh had already planned to provoke emotional reactions so that Aang would subconsciously bend any of the small elements. It's just lucky for them that Aang was already in a state of considerable emotional imbalance (uneasiness and fearful confusion) from what was going on, that he bent the small elements more blatantly.
