** '''Pakku''': The fact that after generations of tradition and his own personal beliefs he decides to accept a woman, Katara, as his pupil for combat water-bending. Some believe Katara legitimately earned this right for proving her natural talent and tenacity against Pakku, well timed with the reveal of Pakku's past and loss of his first love, Katara's grandmother, leaving him in an emotionally vulnerable state and allowing him to consider bending the rules. Others, however, feel the timing seems too coincidental, coupled with the reveal later in the series that Pakku had approached Kanna and married her, making fans theorize Pakku only allowed Katara to study under him so he could use it as leverage on Kanna to convince her he's changed his ways. The fact he is never mentioned again (nor is Kanna) after the series is concluded doesn't help get a read on what his current beliefs are (if he still refuses to teach women other than Katara, or if he is open to teaching everyone now).

* CompleteMonster: [[EvilIsBurningHot Fire]] Lord [[BigBad Ozai]] is a genocidal, [[WouldHurtAChild child-abusing]] fascist dictator who has dedicated weeks at a time and large portions of his national army to hunting down and killing a twelve-year-old and his friends. He forced Ursa into marrying him, and tried to kill her old lover out of spite. He obtained the throne when he manipulated Ursa into murdering his father to usurp the throne from his grieving older brother Iroh. [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves He then thanked her with banishment from the Fire Nation]] and threatened to hunt them down and kill the children if she took them with her. He [[AbusiveParents abused his son Zuko]] out of spite when [[spoiler:Ursa claimed that Zuko was not his son even though he knew it was a lie]], burned his face for speaking out of turn, and [[OffingTheOffspring tried to shoot him with lightning]] [[spoiler: when he decides to join Aang]]. He manipulated his loyal daughter Azula into becoming his [[DaddysLittleVillain perfect little villain]] to the point where she snaps from the pressure, only to later discard her to a completely meaningless position. Finally, his reaction to news of rebellions in the Earth Kingdom is to try to [[KillItWithFire incinerate the continent]]. Even after his downfall he stills tries to [[ManipulativeBastard manipulate his son Zuko into being a tyrant like himself]]. He doesn't regret any of those moments and feels no remorse for the consequences.

* DistractedByTheSexy: Potentially one of the purposes of Joo Dee [[spoiler:not just the first one introduced but all of them]]. [[spoiler:It's seems that Long Feng and the Dai Li choose young attractive women to brainwash into these smiling tour guides. It makes sense when you think about it. Not only do they have to put up with "being handled" like Team Avatar was but she could potentially distract any male VIP/Visitor. Though most people find Joo Dee's smile creepy, I know I'd be distracted]].

** '''Azulon''': Considering how little is known about him and how ambiguous a certain scene is, alternate interpretations have cropped up about the order to kill Zuko. Some see it as a sick display of affection and loyalty for his eldest son Iroh, others saw it as a SecretTestOfCharacter that went out of hand, much like Abraham being ordered to sacrifice Isaac in Literature/TheBible. It has even been suggested that he ''never'' gave any such order- that Azula made it up in order to pick on Zuko, and Ozai went along with the lie in order to gain Ursa's cooperation. One FanFic even suggested that when Azulon said that Ozai would feel the pain of losing his son, it was because Azulon wanted Zuko to become Iroh's heir.

** '''Kyoshi''': Of the Avatars seen so far, she's the most inclined to follow the letter of the law. However people of Tumblr seem to be under the impression that just because she doesn't regret putting down Chin the conqueror to save her people, apparently she is now labeled a full on BloodKnight, who apparently ''loves'' to battle and kill her enemies.

** Zuko/Katara is favored in most places, but East Asia has other Zuko ships in mind: Zuko/Toph is the most popular in Korea, Zuko/Aang is the most popular in Japan, and Zuko/Jet is the most popular in China.
*** A poll where over 150,000+ people were surveyed showed that Zuko/Katara continues to be more popular than Aang/Katara even after 10 years since the premiere.
*** Even the majority of the Avatar crew members preferred Zutara over Kataang. Head writer, Aaron Ehasz and director, Giancarlo Volpe shipped Zutara. However, none of them are as vocal about it as Zuko's voice actor, Dante Basco.

** Many Japanese fans of Avatar exist though, and begged for a Japanese release of Book 3. As of the 6th of March 2016, their wishes have finally been answered because [[http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B01BW1UB2M?ref_=aiv_dp_season_select Book 3 of Avatar has been released on Amazon Japan.]]



** Zuko/Katara is favoured in most places, being especially beloved in Japan (which is saying something since Avatar never really caught on there).

** Zuko and Katara's battle against Azula in the finale is often regarded as the best fight scene in the series.

*** Careful reading of the old drafts for Avatar will reveal that Aang was not the last airbender and many were just out there hiding. After the war had ended, he set off on a quest with Appa and Momo to find his people. This idea was dropped as the show went on and Aang truly did become the sole survivor as a way to make him tragic and give him more depth. His status as TheLastOfHisKind has been confirmed by WordOfGod.
