* AdaptedOut: Notably, Zhao isn't mentioned at all throughout the play, with Zuko taking his place during the events of ''The Blue Spirit''. Meaning Zuko gets attacked by his own secret identity.
** A tiny doll of him does appear at the end of the first act to be grabbed by Aang-as-enraged Ocean Spirit
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Inverted with every single character, as none of the Ember Island players are as attractive as their real life counterpart.

* CharacterExaggeration: The play versions of the characters are all exaggerated versions of them, mostly based on their pre- character development selves. Aang is annoyingly cheerful and childish, Sokka is shallow comic relief and just makes bad jokes about eating [[note]] The real Sokka is more annoyed that the topics never change than anything, to the point that he slips the actor some new bad jokes during intermission [[/note]], Katara is an emotional wreck who keeps launching into speeches about hope, and Zuko has his angst and focus on his honor dialed up to eleven. Toph is rendered as a BoisterousBruiser (played by a muscular man no less) who does nothing but take down bad guys and make quips, which the real Toph thinks is ''awesome''.

* DecompositeCharacter: Zuko and the Blue Spirit are seperate characters in the play. The author probably never knew who the masked man was. Thanks to Zuko taking over Zhao's role for that sequence they end up fighting each other.

* EvilIsHammy: Played with by the ShowWithinTheShow. The actor character playing Ozai on stage is even hammier that the other actor characters playing the other ''Avatar'' characters on stage. To the RealLife audience, this might seem like a straight example of this trope, but to most of the in-universe audience it would seem like an InvertedTrope since said audience is mostly composed of Fire Nation citizens who think of Ozai as the hero.

* MoodWhiplash: Toph and Zuko talk about his relationship with Iroh, with Toph mentioning her meeting with Iroh, and then she randomly punches him. Because that's how Toph shows affection.

* TheAbridgedSeries: ''In-Canon'' at that!

to:

* TheAbridgedSeries: ''In-Canon'' at that![[invoked]] Their show is a vastly condensed version of Aang's journey, gleaned largely from second-hand accounts (surprisingly accurate ones), though with a TwistEnding that's "Fire Nation friendly", you might say.
