* JerkassBall: Katara holds this when she rather nastily taunts Zuko for losing his firebending, insulting him by saying that perhaps he wasn't a good firebender to begin with, and mocking his new form of firebending. Granted, she has some understandable reasons to be mad at Zuko. [[note]] Examples being his constant jabs of "barbarian" and "peasant", kidnapped Aang at the North Pole, and betraying her in Ba Sing Se to help Azula.[[/note]]

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: The Sun Warrior leader frees Zuko and Aang from the trap and learns about why they were investigating the ruins. He then lets the masters judge them on their worthiness. When they pass, he's visibly happy and only warns them not to tell anyone.



* SecretTestOfCharacter: The Sun Warriors are stern with Zuko and Aang after freeing them from the glue trap. They say that since they discovered them, they have to undergo a meeting with the masters and face their judgment. When the dragons deem Zuko and Aang worthy after they do a firebending dance, the Sun Warriors become visibly nicer and congratulate them. Their only request is that the two not tell anyone that the Sun Warriors are still active.



* WhatTheHellHero: The Sun Warriors gave these to Aang and Zuko.

Added DiffLines:

* LampshadeHanging: After Zuko and Aang are captured by the Sun Warriors, who accuse of them of being thieves, Aang tells them that he is the Avatar in order to win their trust. The sarcastic and confident manner in which he delivers the line is an obvious nod to the numerous times in which Aang has used his status as the Avatar to get himself out of trouble in the past.

** When Aang brings up his status as the Avatar in hopes that'll get the Firebending masters' approval, the Sun Warriors remind him that his abandonment of the world is what lead to the Dragons' ''extinction''. Because of that, it's highly unlikely that the masters will accept Aang because he's the Avatar.
