** June, the girl who was introduced to us by breaking open a ship hull to capture a fugitive, wishes she could get dressed up more often, complains about her outfit, then giggles.

** Later, she kills Mai in a painful manner. Although it was in the heat of battle, which would be an acceptable excuse, Katara explains that it's because Mai poisoned her to cause her to miscarry. While the anger within Katara is understandable, the ProtagonistCenteredMorality comes from the fact that Sokka tells her that it was a heroic thing to do.

While the anger within Katara country, and is understandable, the ProtagonistCenteredMorality comes now suffering from the fact that Sokka tells EasyAmnesia on top of that.

* WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent: A scene in Chapter 4, which was meant to be a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, but comes off as a retroactive example of this trope. After nearly a year at Toph's estate, Azula meets Zuko and [[spoiler: Ursa]]. The two proceed to monologue about how much better Azula is now than she was when she actually had a personality. The canon Azula's claim that her family never loved her for who she was actually looks more feasible in this light.

Moral Mypia is when it's acknowledge in-universe. Protagonist Centered Morality fits better.
* MoralMyopia: Zuko quickly declares Mai's heart darker than either his tyrannical father or manipulative sister. Her crime? Not telling Zuko that Katara was pregnant with his child. This is portrayed as a horrible thing, even though Katara herself decided that for the good of the world Zuko must never know. (See IdiotBall for how Mai, and ultimately Zuko find out anyway) When Mai tries the same logic, she's declared selfish. ** Later, she kills Mai in a painful manner. Although it was in the heat of battle, which would be an acceptable excuse, Katara explains that it's because Mai poisoned her to cause her to miscarry. While the anger within Katara is understandable, the MoralMyopia comes from the fact that Sokka tells her that it was a heroic thing to do.
