* EnsembleDarkhorse: Sho, to an extent. Probably because (a) he's an original character, and therefore does not bastardize any Avatar characters simply by his presence, (b) his "evil" alignment means he's generally trying to kill off said bastardizations of Avatar characters, and (c) he's pretty much the only {{badass}} and good-looking character in the comic.

* RootingForTheEmpire: Given how our "heroes" are more or less [[DesignatedHero complete assholes]], it's no surprise that most of the comics detractors root for Mai and Sho due to Mai being a lot more sympathetic than Katara and Sho being a {{Badass}}.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: [[{{Badass}} Sho]] is far and away the best thing about this story. Unfortunately, he barely appears in it.

* * UncannyValley: Good ''lord'', Aang. He's usually drawn with a preteen's head, an adult's body, and grotesquely extended limbs.

* TheyJustDidntCare: "Chard monster" was probably supposed to be ''charred'' monster, years after Zuko's scar has stopped being such a sore point for him.
** 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).

* GodModeSue: Katara. It's {{Downplayed}}, but still there: She's a bloodbender who isn't restricted by the full moon. There's no way Mai could be a real threat, as Katara could easily incapacitate her at any time, and as ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfKorra'' shows, she could even use it to take away bending. The only way to resist it is to be the Avatar (who's on her side), or to be a more powerful waterbender than she is (neither Mai nor Sho are waterbenders).

** Zuko confronting Mai about her actions regarding his love child with Katara. It's memorable partly because it's a good indicator of the comic's sense of morality (the guy who had a child out of wedlock is the sympathetic character), and writing (two words: "[[RougeAnglesOfSatin chard]] [[MemeticMutation monster]]").

* 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 homewrecker. Her miscarriage was supposed to give her sympathy, but all it showed that she would make even her dead child all about her.

** Katara also falls into this a couple times because of Diaz's lazy artwork.

* IdiotPlot: Had Sokka not been an idiot and checked where the Messenger Hawks were going, Mai would never have got the letter. Had Zuko not been an idiot and contacted Katara on his own, many misunderstandings would have been cleared up before they became problems (and he'd have less to {{Wangst}} about). Had Mai not been an idiot and burnt the letter from Katara, Zuko would never have found out about the baby. Common sense would have made for a much shorter and far less melodramatic plot.
