** Toph also refuses to fight in battles because she doesn't care for it and is "too old", this totally goes against her previously established love for fighting and the age excuse comes off as flimsy when there have been many elderly fighters in the franchise before. Zuko continues to fight as he travels the world and the Order of the White Lotus from the original series all continued to kick butt at very old ages - Bumi was over 112 years old.

** Books 1 and 2 have been a critical darling among professional reviewers, but there's been no shortage of fan criticism, especially towards the latter. Season 1 was mainly criticized for pacing issues, whereas Season 2 caught flack for frustrating story/characterization choices being particular points of contention, as well as seemingly {{RetCon|ning}} the Avatar's backstory.

* GrowingTheBeard: The first two books polarizing. Books 3 and 4 had a much clearer idea of what they wanted to do, which greatly helped out overall.

* GrowingTheBeard: The first two books were, shall we say polarizing. Most of the problems can be stemmed to Beggins the scenes trouble. Fortunately, books 3 and 4 had a much clearer idea of what they wanted to do, which greatly helped out overall.

** Korra and Asami [[spoiler: being an official couple]] is either seen as one of the most progressive moments in the history of children's television, or seen as a weak attempt of being progressive while accusing the creators of PanderingToTheBase. Doesn't really helps that the writing of the relationship of both girls to Mako throughout the first two seasons was bungled so badly that [[TakeThatUs the writers even acknowledged]] (InUniverse and out) [[TakeThatUs how much they screwed up]], making some of those who disliked the relationship (and some who ''did'' liked it but felt it was poorly foreshadowed) to assume that the only reason why they ended together was because writing any of them going back to Mako would have been ''even more of a cop-out''.

* InformedWrongness: The narrative tries to present HumansAreTheRealMonsters when after leaving the lion turtles they began systematically attacking any spirit they came across. The problem is that it disregards the fact that they were only confined to the lion turtles when the spirits took over the world and isolated them there. Plus as Jia stated the spirits do the exact same thing to the human so they canít exactly claim the moral high ground.
** Plus despite the FantasticRacism repeatedly displayed by the spirits when ever balance needs to be maintained is talked about it is always the human that need to respect the spirits.
** There is also the fact that Wan was stopping humans from hunting for food and when the hunters were angry with this and chased him, Wan unintentionally lead the party to their deaths or mutilations in the process. If he hadn't left to explore the world, the people of Wan's former lion turtle city might have eventually starved.

** On the opposite end, the Chouís are presented as oppressors. While they arenít exactly nice, [[JerkassHasAPoint they have a point]] in that food is a scarce resource and the Chou's have to protect it.

** Humanity in general. Spirits moved in on their turf, forcibly separated all of mankind and then killed and mutated them with capricious spite. How are they not justified in their anger?

* DesignatedHero: Wan is introduced as an Alladin type, i.e a savvy StreetUrchin who has no qualms about stealing from others to feed himself. The problem with this is that food is a very scarce resource something Wan either doesnít understand or care given that he immediately gave the food away leaving others to go hungry. Adding to his misunderstanding of scarce resources once banished he began actively hindering the hunters trying to obtain food going so far as to kill two and maim a third. The show itself seems to lampshade this as the spirits referred to Wanís act of murdering two people who were merely trying to get food to feed themselves and their village as selfless and it also why they accept him. So Wan once again allowed another person to starve to save himself. Finally Wan never actually claimed responsibility for his actions when he met up with his villiage again after hearing that they attack any spirit they seee he asks when did they become so violent convieniently forgetting that he was the one who taught them that ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer but also by aiding the spirits in preventing the hunters from hunting he made leaving the turtle and killing any spirit they saw as the only viable means of survival.
** Furthermore the story tries to present Wanís actions as the result of the Chouís oppression the problem with this is that no one in the lion turtle city is shown to be discontent or hurting unfairly under the chou regime.
** Even the idea of hunters risking there lives in the spirit wilderness to gather food isnít shown to be for or do to the Chouís in fact itís for the people. In fact the only people shown to be negatively are wan and Jaya who live in a tree house on the outskirts of the turtle and the handful of people who end up leaving the city with no resistance from the chouís at all. The only clue that Wan and his friends have ever done anything to earn a living was his friend being disfigured hinting that he might have been a hunter. This means that Wanís approach to getting fire comes across as incredibly disrespectful.

** Finally Wan never once showed any character development. He keeps making impulsive decisions that puts other people in danger freeing Vaatu being the biggest. All in all Wan comes across as a hypocritical entitled bastard and murderer who repeatedly endangers other peoples lives for his on selfish whims yet never takes responsibility for his actions.

** Finally Finally, Wan never once showed any character development. lives up to the title of the Avatar. He keeps making impulsive decisions that puts other people in danger danger, freeing Vaatu based only on the spirit's word being the biggest. biggest and typically putting the needs of spirits over the needs of humans. Despite being the first Avatar, Wan never manages to peacefully reconcile any conflict with words, only through fighting, and even then, he separates the spirits from the humans so the two sides never learn to get along. All in all all, Wan comes across as a hypocritical entitled bastard and murderer who repeatedly endangers other peoples lives for his on selfish whims yet never takes responsibility for his actions.

** By the end of the series is Mako aware [[spoiler: of Korra and Asami's feelings for one another?]]. There is evidence that seems to support either interpretation [[spoiler: such as the scene in Reunion were he asks what's going on between Korra and Asami]] and his final words in the Finale which are coded in such a way that some fans say [[spoiler: he is telling Korra that he understands and is supportive of Korra's decision to get together with Asami]]. Plus some fans have pointed out that Mako is a pretty intelligent guy and [[spoiler: he's dated both Korra and Asami so he probably could tell if there was something more then friendship going on between the two]].
