This countdown contains examples of:

  • Advertisement:
  • Damned by Faint Praise: Inverted; Critic points out that these are the worst episodes by default because the others are simply better, not because these ones are bad, as he doesn't think there are any bad episodes of Avatar.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Invoked; Critic's decision to discuss the "bad" episodes of Avatar result in Malcolm and Tamara being disappointed in him, guns shooting at him from nowhere, and Dante Basco deciding to deal with him personally.
  • Spoiled by the Format: Invoked
    Malcolm: I don't know Critic, there's still two minutes left in the time bar.
  • Whole Plot Reference: His reason for putting "The Headband" on the list. "Footloose? Really?!"
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: The reason why he believed the "Sokka's Master" episode was unneeded. He never viewed Sokka as The Load and thought he was already a well rounded character from the start.

How well does it match the trope?
