SPOILERS are very likely to appear, so be wary.
open/close all folders
Accidental Pervert: Katara wishes she was this. Problem for her is that all to often, her perversions are either obviously deliberate or fail to materialise.
Anger Born of Worry: Katara got extremely pissy with Zuko after he fought Azula while escaping the Western Air Temple.
Angrish: Katara is pissed after Aang tries to force a forgiveness aesop on her
Annoying Patient: Zuko gets very cranky at having to stay in bed with cooler fever. This also happens somewhat when Dr. Yang prescribes a week of strict bed rest for him after his Agni Kai with Azula.
A Threesome is Hot: In The Boy in the Iceberg, the play's rendition of Zuko often had threesomes, which becomes a Running Gag in Not Stalking Firelord Zuko because people only know him through the play and women proposition him.
Fragile Flower: Invoked by Toph in A Spoonful Of Sugar to avoid getting her feet binded. 1 in 12 twelve girls die from the infection caused by procedure, so by making her parents think she's too weak and sickly she gets to keep her feet.
Also, foot-binding, to put it bluntly, mutilates the feet so badly that a woman so "treated" can barely stand upright. Earthbending, as a style, depends on a strong, sturdy stance and adept footwork, especially Toph's home-brewed style. If Toph had got her feet bound? Her Earthbending would have been completely crippled.
"Well Done, Son!" Guy: Toph wants her parents to accept her for who she is and it is explored in depth in the story. Everytime their letters come showing they clearly don't is shown to really upset Toph. It's rectified by Poppy by the time of Not Stalking Firelord Zuko.
Cool Big Sis: Katara sees her as one for she is older and more wordly than Katara and Toph reluctantly views her as one
Lethal Chef: Her food tastes like congealed sadness and burned a roast to an inedible crisp. Sokka ate it anyways because he loves her. Justified in that she never had to cook before as the other Kyoshi Warriors did. She gets better in Not Stalking Firelord Zuko when she makes a dish that's tasteless but edible. She's learning
Satellite Love Interest: Averted as Suki got more Character Development to avoid being one. Discussed by Suki herself as she competes with Zuko in Not Stalking Zuko to establish herself an identity in the group outside of being Sokka's girlfriend
Team Mom: Was this to the Kyoshi Warriors and she missed being one. She regains it in Not Stalking Firelord Zuko
Uptown Girl: He's the Earth King while his love, Song is a healer.
Awful Truth: She gave Long Feng and the Dai Li their power to rule in her place when she did not desire or know how to rule and to preserve the culture of Ba Sing Se. Was completely horrified by Long Feng's abuse of power and the treatment of the Joo Dee
Yamato Nadeshiko: an older example, she typically sticks to the private sphere and the manners of the Earth Kingdom court, she has a strong sense duty. She became regent after Long Feng was taken down and when her son too spineless
The Joo Dee
Ascended Fridge Horror: What would a all-male, amoral organization do with beautiful brainwashed women with no ties?
Deprogramming: What Yugoda and Katara are working to break them out of.
Sex Slave: The Dai Li used sexually abuse many of them
Naked People Are Funny: Iroh's "Naked Iroh Time" is used frequently as comedy, until Jet realized that he had proof that Iroh was a firebender due his comfortable nudity in the cold early spring in a poorly insulated apartment.
Chekhov's Gunman: She is first mentioned in Stalking Zuko as the instructor who taught Zuko to dodge by throwing fireballs at him and making him turn despite injury until he fainted. She becomes a major character when introduced in Not Stalking Firelord Zuko.
Cool Teacher: Was one to Toph as she had to give Toph a "lady's education"
Magical Nanny: She discovers Toph is an earthbender due to Toph smoothing the rock samples and organizing the rocks by age
Master Poisoner: It's implied this is how she killed Azulon, she also notes that she could have used her talents to become something else.
Mundane Solution: Hides the fact she doesn't know anything about the Earth Kingdom by giving Toph an extensive lesson on geology
Noble Fugitive: Who would think the Fire Lady would hide as an Earth Kingdom nanny?
The Colonial Kids: Rozin, Rei and Rena
The Water Tribes
City Mouse, Country Mouse: Northern Water Tribe is metropolitian, wealthy and traditional while the Southern Water Tribe are poor, small and adaptable. The South became that way due to Fire Nation raids and receiving no help from the North.
Enemy Mine: The Fire Nation gave the Southern Water Tribe good reparation terms and far more respect. The Southern Water Tribe tends to side the Fire Nation as opposed to their Northern counterparts
Who Needs Enemies?: The Tribes attempt to present a united front to get better say in the peace conference. Otherwise, they despise each other. The Southern Water Tribe remembers that Northern Water Tribe didn't lift a finger to help them when they were being slowly killed off while the North thinks the South as poor, uneducated yokels.
The Matchmaker: tries to set Katara up with Hahn in an Arranged Marriage to set an alliance with the Northern Water Tribe and the increasingly resentful Southern Water Tribe. Katara refuses and Hakoda respects her decision.
No Guy Wants an Amazon: His advice to Katara for a marriage with Hahn is to not show off that she's a better fighter than him.
Noble Bigot: Is sexist and isolationist, but willing to listen and help.
