** Zuko is clearly conflicted on what to do regarding the colonies and decides to ask someone for help.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That he consults his uncle, whom always gives the best advice he needs or better yet, someone from the Gaang surely could give him a useful advice regarding the whole Harmonious issue.\\
'''Instead:''' He consults the {{Jerkass}} and manipulative Ozai. While he does give Zuko advice regarding leadership, it makes Zuko acting more his father and makes the people believe that he is starting to become one.

'''Instead:''' She attacks them with only two Dai Li agents. The Gaang defeats them, and they even manage to catch Azula herself! It was basically luck that she wasn't injured, or killed. Azula does manage to escape, but so does the Faang (again), and Aang inevitably fulfills his destiny, defeating Ozai and the Fire Nation. Oops.

* Hama eventually does find a potential student by accident: Katara, who is also from the Southern Water Tribe and has a reasonable grudge against the Fire Nation, since Fire Nation soldiers killed her mother. During the full moon, she reveals to Katara the art of blood-bending as well as her role in kidnapping random {{Innocent Bystander}}s at night.\\
'''You'd Expect''': For Katara to go OhCrap on realizing that she's facing a BlackAndWhiteInsanity woman that can manipulate people like puppets with their bodily fluids and has done so for decades. Katara could then try to make an excuse to leave as soon as possible, create a distraction and run for the cover of the woods where Hama won't be able to see her without the moonlight, or beg to only learn the movements without having to use them on a living thing. Either way, it's best for her to go ScrewThisImOuttaHere and find the others.\\
'''Instead''': Katara openly declares that she will never use blood-bending. Hama then blood-bends her, forcing her to learn the movements anyway, and lampshades Katara "betraying" her without having learned from her. Although Katara eventually overpowers Hama, the scars of blood-bending stay with her, especially when forced to use to to save Aang and her brother.

'''Instead:''' Zuko being [[DidntThinkThisThrough Zuko]], only practices his "Hello, Zuko here" speech on a frog and while apologizing to the Gaang for [[ListOfTransgressions his past actions]] reveals that he sent "Combustion Man" after them. ([[ComicallyMissingThePoint "That's not his real name."]]) If not for Combustion Man arriving just in time and aid the Gaang against him some earning him some good favours, he would have had no chance of convincing them ''at all''.
* Meanwhile Aang still needs a Firebending teacher, and lo and behold, Zuko appears and basically offers assistance to the Gaang.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That Sokka and Katara put aside their grudge against Zuko, consider the fate of the world and how Aang ''really'' needs to learn Firebending and reluctantly allow Zuko to join. Keep in mind that he's quite possibly the ''only'' Firebender in the world now who would be willing to help.\\

In addition, given the Gaang has three benders [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg "and Sokka"]] as Toph put it once, they could all serve as BetrayalInsurance if Zuko is lying or becomes tempted to return to the Fire Nation's side, especially Katara with her TeamMom attitude and recently-gained ability to bloodbend.\\



'''Result:''' This explanation completely fails to satisfy Toph, who assumes that Aang is once again putting his people's traditions over the rest of the world, and the two of them get into a battle that could have ended in one of them getting killed if Old Iron hadn't shown up when he did.

* Ursa is told by Ozai that in exchange for [[spoiler:a undetectable poison that will kill Azulon, [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation apparently]] saving Zuko's life]], she must leave the capital and never return.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Ursa to discretely gather her children and leave in the middle of the night.\\
'''Or:''' Ursa to threaten to take the children in the hopes that Ozai will let her stay in the palace to insure that Zuko and Azula also stay, and then take them anyway when he disagrees.\\
'''Instead:''' She tells Ozai she is going to take the children with her, he says no, and she goes on her merry way alone, leaving Zuko and Azula with their father, who, just moments ago, was planning on [[spoiler:killing his son]].

* ''[[ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheRift The Rift:]]'' As Aang prepares to destroy the Earthern Fire Refinery and the surrounding town in order to try and pacify General Old Iron, Toph appears and demands to know what's going on, being one of the biggest fans of the refinery and all it represents. Aang now has to give her an explanation.\\

* ''[[ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheRift The Rift:]]'' Rift:]]''
** Aang decides to celebrate Yangchen's festival, an old Air Nomad holiday, with the rest of the Gaang and the Air Acolytes. Toph soon soon stops enjoying the holiday when Aang insists on following through with the ceremonies of the holiday despite not knowing any of their purposes, since it reminds her of [[GildedCage her unenjoyable childhood]]. It gets to the point that she becomes visibly upset, and Aang notices.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That Toph would explain her issues with participating in the holiday to Aang, and either ask if she can be excused from the celebrations or just suck it up and stick it out. Aang may have been a bit overly-enthusiastic about celebrating Yangchen's Festival with his friends, but it's not like he chained her up and dragged her along. Alternatively, Aang could just ask Toph what her problem is.\\
'''Instead:''' Toph pretty much decides to behave like a spoiled brat, whereas Aang immediately treats her like such without ever thinking that she might have a reason for her behaviour.
