** X, there is Y under your feet! Why don't you fight? (Aang motivates the imprisoned Earthbenders by pointing out that the material that they can ''[[DishingOutDirt magically manipulate]]'' was ''[[ForgotAboutHisPowers completely surrounding them]]''.

** Nicola Peltz and Jackson Rathbone as Katara and Sokka, given the white actors looked nothing like the characters in the cartoon. This was made worse not just by the fact all the Waterbender extras ''were'' Asian or Inuit actors, meaning the main characters don't seem to belong to their own tribem, but also by their DullSurprise acting.

%% * GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: M. Night Shyamalan claims that while American audiences received the film negatively, the Japanese audience view him as a genius.

* DorkAge: Widely seen as rock bottom for Shyamalan's career, with many of the director's most infamous tropes once again in play and its unfaithfulness to the animated series it was based on attracting immense backlash from longtime fans and newcomers alike.

Added DiffLines:

** The mispronunciation of the characters' names; for example, Aang being pronounced as "Ong", and Sokka is pronounced "Soh-ka". The fandom went to town with this and it quickly became symbolic of the film's faults.

* CriticalResearchFailure: Despite him claiming to be a fan of the show, Shymalan sure seems to have forgotten a lot about it. For example: In the corresponding episode of the show that the Earthbending prison scene comes from, the prison was made of metal and floating in the ocean[[note]]it's only because Aang and friends reveal that the prison has a large supply of Coal - which the Earthbenders can control - that they are able to stage a successful prison break[[/note]], so that there was no earth they could directly bend[[note]]metalbending was discovered by an Earthbender later in the show, but that character was not introduced until the second season; the episode the prison scene is from is in season 1[[/note]]. In the movie, however, the prison is more like a standard prison camp on the ground - not cages suspended from trees, or even metal plates directly below the feet of the prisoners. In real life, this would be like giving POWs loaded assault rifles with armor piercing bullets.

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Shaun Toub and Dev Patel, though at least the latter was somewhat close to his character's original portrayal.

* NeverLiveItDown: Played straight with Creator/MNightShyamalan, who has yet to distance himself from the spectacular failure of this film on top of his [[Film/TheVillage previous]] [[Film/LadyInTheWater three]] [[Film/TheHappening outings]]. Likewise, Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} and Creator/{{Paramount}} have not been allowed to forget that they paid for it.
