* LooseCanon: It ties in to the film, however the writers went out of their way to include references to the animated series with the Western and Eastern Air Temples, the Great Gates of Azulon, Crescent Island, Avatar Roku, Fire Sage Shyu, Guru Pahtik, the Sun Warriors, and Azula looking identically to her animated self. Except for Zuko and Iroh being drawn like their film counterparts, this would fit right in with the animated series' canon. There is however no word whether the series considers this manga to be canon. (Indeed, the canonical comic ''ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheSearch'' suggests a different inspiration for Zuko's alter ego the Blue Spirit.)
* MythologyGag: The Red Spirit's look is identical to the animated Blue Spirit, with a different colored mask.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Fire Lord Ozai actually manages to be even worse in this version. Like in the cartoon canon, he scarred and banished his son, but in the cartoon he at least gave his son a small ship and crew, even if they were not royal guards or special forces. Zukos Story revealed that when Zuko was banished from the palace in the film universe, he was forced to live on the streets and try to recruit a crew from bars and failed. Ultimately, Zuko had to resort to asking Azula to ask Ozai to give him a ship. And even then, Ozai only give Zuko the ship to get rid of Iroh.



* KickTheDog: Not only did Fire Lord Ozai scar and banish his son, he didn't even bother to give Zuko anything to help him. He did not even pretend that Zuko's quest to capture the Avatar wasn't a way to get rid of Zuko, and only gave him a ship and crew to get rid of Iroh.



* PetTheDog: After Zuko is banished and is forced to live on the streets and fails to find a crew, he resorts to asking Azula to ask Ozai to give him a ship, noticing that Ozai would listen to her because she's his favorite child. Azula agrees, and gets Zuko the ship and crew he needed.



* SnipeHunt: Like in the series, the search for the Avatar is heavily implied to be this.

* SnipeHunt: Like in the series, the Zuko's search for the Avatar is heavily implied shown to be this.this, even more so in Zukos Story then in canon. When Zuko was banished from the palace, he was left to live on the street, Ozai not even bothering to give him anything to help him, as opposed to canon, where he at least gave him a small ship and crew. Here, Zuko has to resort to trying to recruit a crew in bars, which fails, with one bar patron outright telling Zuko his quest to get the Avatar was just a way for his father to get rid of him. Zuko had to ask Azula to ask Ozai to give him a ship, but even then Ozai only give Zuko the ship to get rid of Iroh. Upon arriving at the docks of a nondescript town celebrating the Fire Days festival, Commander Kanku refuses to produce any maps or intel on the surrounding region for the banished prince in fear of losing the Fire Lord's good favor. Basically everyone can see that Zuko's quest for the Avatar for what it is except Zuko, because of his misplaced love and loyalty to his father and hope that capturing the Avatar can end his banishment.



to:

* WhatTheHellHero: When Guru Pahtik encounters Zuko, Zuko demands answers, even physically tackling him at a point. Once the guru gives Zuko a prophecy and leaves, Zuko snaps at Iroh, who had come to the guru's aid, only for Iroh to [[BewareTheNiceOnes snap back]] that there was no excusing harming an elder who's done no harm in return.


* TheProphecy: Guru Pahtik delivers one to Zuko.
