* Occasionally accompanies the more hopeless plans on ''AvatarTheLastAirbender''. For instance, in "The Cave of the Two Lovers", the Gaang decides they're not going to walk through the eponymous haunted cavern, they'll just fly instead. Smash Cut to a Fire Nation artillery battery using them for target practice, and they change their minds. In the Extras version of this episode, the smash cut was {{lampshade|Hanging}}d.
