* Toph is awesome in this comic
** She launches herself into the air with Earthbending and makes a perfect landing on Appa's back as he flies overhead. Keep in mind Appa was probably miles above her and she had no way of knowing where he was except for sound.
** When the Earth Kingdom rioters outside of Yu Dao throw a rock at Sokka as he tries to calm everyone down, Toph then shuts everyone up by announcing herself as the greatest earthbender in the world and threatens to smash the next person who speaks up with a boulder.
** She uses Earthbending in mid air a long way above the ground to precisely let her and Sokka slide down. She determined the altitude using her ''sense of smell'' to identify the location of the trees near her dojo.
** She makes a monstrous looking MetaMecha by remodeling Fire Nation armor and powered by Metalbending despite the fact that she can't see. Special credit to Sokka for somehow communicating the design through to the blind girl. Seriously, this girl is the greatest earthbender of all time.
* Katara is also awesome
** [[PunctuatedPounding "STOP *waterbends* TRYING *waterbends* TO *waterbends* SET *waterbends* MY *waterbends* BOYFRIEND *waterbends* ON *waterbends* FIRE!"]]
** How much her waterbending has improved even further since Sozin's comet. She can make floating staircases and even use water like a flying carpet for crossing chasms. It's not so much as her ability as much as the effortless ease with which she does it -- it goes almost unnoticed.
** The SugarWiki/MostTriumphantExample of ''the entire series'': Katara uses ThePowerOfLove to break what was seconds from becoming a ViciousCycle of {{Could Have Avoided This Plot}}s. Aang is angsting over having to kill Zuko to fulfill the titular Promise and restore the balance by separating the Nations once more, when Katara points out that if the nations have to be separate, how can the two of them build a life together? She doesn't even ''say'' it as any kind of threat, just as an observation, because she wants peace more than anything. Thus [[TheFederation The United Republic Of Nations]] is born. Bravo, [[WhoopiEpiphanySpeech Katara Water Tribe]]. '''''Bravo.'''''
* Protesters attack Sokka for being a "Water Tribe Savage" and then make fun of him for only having a boomerang. He shuts them up quickly with a simple flick of his signature weapon.
* Toph's students figuring out how to Metalbend literally overnight with nothing more than self confidence and then going {{Badass}} by shooting the daylights out of the rival Firebender students, and their teacher.
* Though it has negative consequences, Earth King Kuei finally [[TookALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]] and declaring that he will send his army to enforce Harmony Restoration.
* The final page of volume 3 and the entire story: [[spoiler: AZULA'S BACK.]]
