YMMV / Mako

  • Memetic Badass: Iroh; Mako himself due in part to Iroh.
  • Older Than They Think: His career, to those who knew him only as Iroh or Aku; they'll be surprised at his résumé. For example, the fact that he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor back in the 1960s.
  • Tear Jerker: His last televised work (as Iroh) was a big one.
    • Also a tearjerker is that Mako died midway through the show. What do the creators of the show do? Not only to they devote an episode to his memory, but they name a main character after him in the sequel series.
