Added DiffLines:

* UncertainDoom: Of the four hunters that chase Wan after he rescues the cat deer, at least 3 are unaccounted for. One falls into a pit of spirit vines and is dragged underneath, another is carried away by a swarm of the fruit wasps, and the third one is [[PartialTransformation briefly possessed by the Aye-Aye spirit]] leaving his body deformed. The third one runs screaming into the wilds. The three hunters are are not specifically mentioned as 'dead' but the hunting leader comments all 3 are gone.


* [[TheTimeOfMyths]] The Time of Myths: The story takes place in a long time, when humans are hiding of the spirits and live in the cities of the giant lion-turtles, and the wilderness is dominated by the spirits.

* BeeAfraid: Wan finds a fruit in the spirit wilds which is actually a clumped-together colony of bees. He later uses them as a weapon against the hunters.

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Except for a short prologue and epilogue featuring Korra, this two-part episode is devoted to chronicling the life of the first Avatar Wan, 10,000 years ago. Even the art style is different than in regular episodes.

Added DiffLines:

->''Go back. Return to the beginning. Find Raava.''

Added DiffLines:

* ChildrenAreInnocent: The friendlier spirits that stick up for Wan speak with child-like voices.


* ActorAllusion: Creator/BarbaraGoodson once again voices a shaman who heals an injured young woman, using "spirit water". She even gave the character a very similar accent to the one she gave to [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Mother Talzin]].

Added DiffLines:

* UngratefulBastard: Pretty much ''all of humanity'' qualifies as this, since it's revealed that for quite some time, the lion turtles protected humanity from a DeathWorld swarming with spirits, and gave humanity the power of the elements. How did humans thank the lion turtles? By hunting them to near-extinction.

Added DiffLines:

** Lion-turtles only give humans Bending for protection when they hunt and forage for food in the "Spirit Wilds." They're supposed to give it back when they return, but Wan breaks the rules by "stealing" (as Jaya calls it) Firebending and taking it back to the city, making him a "fire thief" just like the famed Greek mythological figure Prometheus.
** As the Lion-turtle of Wan's city gives humans the power to control an element (in this case, fire), he says, "[[WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers The power is yours]] to keep..."


** Also, the aye-aye spirit says None-Of-Your-Business Valley, which is like in ''The Blind Bandit'': "It's on the island of Noneoya...none o' ya business!"

* DeathWorld: In Avatar Wan's time, the planet is a very dangerous place to be for humans, ever since the spirits have colonized it following Vaatu's penetration of the veil between realities. Even if their patron lion-turtle lends them some bending for protection outside the rare few cities, life is still nasty, brutish, and short. Wan searches for ''two years'' before he finally locates other humans.
