* ''[[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. ** 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.\\

Aang now has to give her an explanation.\\ '''You'd Expect:''' "There's a giant, all-powerful spirit who's going to go to war with humanity if this land isn't returned to its natural state!"\\ '''Instead:''' ''(paraphrased)'' "One of the previous Avatars made a deal with a giant, ancient spirit, then humans built over this land and the spirit's probably coming back now...you know what, forget it! I have to do this, so just trust me!"\\ '''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.

Fixing language problems.
'''You'd Expect:''' That Azula would bring a large squad of Dai Li agents to overwhelm them. Or she could have surrounded the area with firebenders, and had them attack after the eclipse was over. Granted, one could argue that resources are important elsewhere, but the Fire Nation had more than enough troops to force a surrender, and the Avatar is kind of the most important figure in the entire war! \\ '''Instead:''' She attacks them with only two Dai Li agents. The gaang defeats them, and they even manage to catch Azula herself! It was essentially luck that she wasn't injured, or killed. Azula does manage to escape, but so does the gaang (again), and Aang inevitably fulfills his destiny, defeating Ozai and the Fire Nation. Oops.

Azula made a big mistake on the Day of Black Sun.

!Graphic Novels: * ''[[Comicbook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderThePromise The Promise:]]'' Following Ozai's defeat and the subsequent end of the Hundred Year War, the Harmony Restoration Movement is established to remove the Fire Nation's colonies in the Earth Kingdom. One year later, Zuko travels to the colony of Yu Dao, where he learns that the Fire Nation colonists and the Earth Kingdom citizens have integrated deeply with one another over the last century, to the point that forcibly relocating the colonists would cause more problems than it would solve. Because of this, Zuko decides to end his support for the Harmony Restoration Movement.\\ '''You'd Expect:''' That before taking any "drastic" action, Zuko would get in contact with Aang and/or the Earth King, explain the situation to them, and see if they could work things out peacefully.\\ '''Instead:''' Zuko publicly withdraws his support for the Harmony Restoration Movement, orders the departing colonials to return to the colonies and fortifies Yu Dao, not letting anyone in or out. Unsurprisingly, a lot of people see this as Zuko refusing to give up his colonies, and another war nearly starts.

* Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee sneak into Ba Sing Se, planning to overthrow the Earth King and capture the city.\\ '''You'd Expect:''' That Azula, being a MagnificentBastard, has something planned in advance to take over the city.\\ '''Instead:''' She tries to take over the Dai Li, despite not knowing they existed before she got into the city or what their duties are, and that they betrayed their old leader without any apparent guilt, and might do the same to her, and never making any mention of having another plan. It worked out for her, but still, she was effectively flying by the seat of her pants that whole time.

The loud fuss was the key to this.
'''Instead:''' He uses Firebending to heat the tea up, putting himself (and, by extension, his nephew) in danger of being lynched as Fire Nation spies. And, in fact, he ''does'' get noticed by Jet; while things don't exactly go as Jet planned, he still comes ''very'' close to outing them as Firebenders.
