** And then there's Diaz's copy-pasting antics. She's copied things from ''photographs'' with absolutely no effort made to make them fit into the cartoony world around them (see the basket of fruit).

* {{Narm}}: Some of the "romantic" or "sad" scenes are absolutely ''hysterical''. Such as Aang glowing avatar-style when having sex with Toph, Azula asking the badly photoshopped duckturtle to be her friend, the photoshop talking panda, etc.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Katara is supposed to be seen as the [[StarCrossedLovers torn heroine who has to fight to be with the man she loves even with the stigma]]. However, the story portrays her as being very shallow and self-centered,who does not care about the fact that she is a conceited homewrecker. Her miscarriage was supposed to give her sympathy, but all it showed that she would make even her dead child all about her.

* UnfortunateImplications: The Sokka-Azula romance only coming around because Azula got amnesia and cannot remember whatever she did. Diaz thinks that the only way these two characters would romantically work out, is if Azula became an entirely different person, who comes across as child-like and immature, leaving the already {{narm}}y sex scenes to come across as {{squick}}y.

Either that, or said women pull all kinds of crap on others either just to get the men to look at them, or to punish other women for taking away "their" men's attentions.

* TheUntwist: The fruit Katara ate was what caused her miscarriage. Despite this being shown in the beginning of Chapter 2, albeit as a flashback-dream, Katara is ''convinced'' that it was her longing for Zuko that caused it. It isn't until Mai flat out tells her that she gave her poisoned fruit that made her miscarry, that Katara even realizes it.

* MarySue: Let's count 'em, shall we?
** FixerSue: Pretty much all the female characters take it in turns to get their friends to hook up amongst each other.
** GodModeSue: A possible interpretation of Katara's infamous daytime bloodbending, as well as the several times when her HealingHands are ''vastly'' more powerful than in the show. It's either this or CriticalResearchFailure.
** JerkSue: Zuko gets away with DomesticAbuse, abandoning the realm to run away with Katara, ''impregnating Katara (thrice) despite all the drama it would bring''.
** PossessionSue: Katara, who looks more and more like the artist as the comic goes on.
** PuritySue: Azula. Also Toph, whose tomboyish personality seems to have degenerated into the occasional matchmaking mischief and one curse when she's fighting Sho.
** RelationshipSue: Zuko and Katara are this for each other, since a good part of the damn plot is centered on how their personalities are changed for the worse so they can hook up.
** VillainSue: Sho displays some shades of this, especially in his [[DeusExMachina exit.]] [[{{Badass}} Though considering Sho is arguably the best character in this comic,]] [[TropesAreNotBad this may actually be a good thing.]]



* StrawmanHasAPoint: Mai hides letters from Katara to Zuko telling him that she's pregnant. When confronted by Zuko, she gives a reason that [[http://i762.photobucket.com/albums/xx265/ReneeLuvsZutara/HIBY%20Chapter%201/028.jpg does make sense]]: She wants to prevent a possible civil war coming from all the succession problems that the existence of a bastard child of the Fire Lord would bring. (And, well, Zuko impregnated Katara ''[[YourCheatingHeart when he already was married to Mai]]''.) However, since this is [[RonTheDeathEater Mai]] and she is [[PossessionSue Katara's]] [[DieForOurShip love rival for Zuko]], she's [[DerailingLoveInterests presented as a]] [[ClingyJealousGirl petty and clingy]] DesignatedVillain who does this only out of bitterness and jealousy... and we're supposed to side with ''Zuko'' [[DomesticAbuser when, in response to her rant, he humiliates and beats her]] before abandoning his war-torn nation to run away with his babymama. Interestingly enough, Katara herself, who is not a strawman, has similar reasons for not telling Zuko.

* ThirtySuePileup: [[PossessionSue Katara]], [[PuritySue Azula, Toph]], [[RelationshipSue Zu]][[JerkSue ko]]... Sokka stops just short of Studom and Aang doesn't do enough to qualify.

** [[JerkSue Zuko]] is supposed to be the romantic, male lead that is torn between duty and the love of his life. However, his actions could be seen as a philanderer who puts his heart before his country and his [[DomesticAbuse hitting Mai when he found she hid the letters about his child with Katara]] showed that he doesn't give a damn about his wife, who he cheated on.

** 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.
