* BadassBoast: BadassBoast: ** Vaatu boasts that no human can defeat him several times during the battle, and quite awesomely too.

* [[CantArgueWithElves Can't Argue With Spirits]]: There were no spirits in the Human World before Vaatu broke through the barrier between realities, at which point the spirits followed through the polar portals. When the few surviving humans struggle to survive on the DeathWorld their planet has become, the spirits charge humans with being violent and destructive worthy only of contempt... despite the spirits being aggressive colonizers who have no qualms about exterminating the natives whenever they get in their way, and are impossible to kill by virtue of being spirits. Wan deals with this at the end up sending them all back to the spirit world and sealing the portals. Very few remain after this.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar / ParentalBonus: Aye-Aye calls Wan's friends [[PlayingWithFire fire]]-[[DoubleEntendre tossers]]. A tosser is British slang similar to the word bastard.

** For Wan, by inspiring people not to accept things as they are, he's started a cycle of conflict between humans when before the turtles kept them protected. ** For Korra, opening the spirit portal. Turns out Wan sealed them for a good reason.

* ActorAllusion: Creator/BarbaraGoodson once again voices a shaman who heals an injured young woman, using "spirit water". She even gave the character a very similar accent, to the one she gave to [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Mother Talzin]].

* BadassBoast: Vaatu boasts that no human can defeat him several times during the battle, and quite awesomely too. Wan gets one as well.

Wan too. --> '''Vaatu''': I lived ten thousand lifetimes before the first of your kind crawled out of the mud! It was I who broke through the divide that separated the plane of spirits from the material world! To hate me is to give me breath. To fight me is to give me strength. Now prepare to face oblivion! **Wan gets one as well.
