Escape from the Spirit World is a canonical Avatar: The Last Airbender online game. The cutscenes are also available as an "animated book" on the series' home release sets.

Set between Books Two and Three, it follows Aang as he journeys through the Spirit World while his body lays unconscious. He meets Yue, who informs him that he must reconnect with his previous four lives or the Avatar Cycle will end.

This game contains examples of:

  • Ascended Extra: Koh only appeared in one episode of the main series. Here, he runs into Aang four times to quiz him on trivia. He also appears in Kuruk’s story, which describes him as taking Umi away when they were getting married.
  • God in Human Form: Discussed. Aang asks Yangchen why the Avatar takes the form of a human instead of an all-powerful spirit. She explains that the Avatar must live among people to understand and be compassionate toward them.
  • Ladykiller in Love: Kuruk describes himself as being quite a flirt in his youth. When he met Umi, though, he had eyes only for her.
  • Mini-Game: The player must complete mini-games to find each past Avatar.
  • My Greatest Failure: Kyoshi informs Aang that one thing she regretted the most is creating the Dai Li. Although her intentions were good, the Dai Li didn’t turn out the way she hoped they would.
  • Pop Quiz: For each Avatar, the player must answer a trivia question, presented by Koh.
