Top 10 Avatar: The Last Airbender Characters

Here is were you'll find the best avatar characters.
The Top Ten
1 Zuko Prince Zuko is a fictional character in Nickelodeon's animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender. Zuko is a master firebender and his younger sister is Azula . He is the son of Prince Ozai and Princess Ursa .

SUCH. A. GREAT. CHARACTER. ARC. I mean, he starts off as the classical villain sort of guy in the show, but after a short amount of time, you come to understand why he's chasing Team Avatar around the world. Honor, honor, honor. At the start of Zuko's life, he was a kind, compassionate Fire Nation prince who had a kind mother and an abusive, evil father. His mother disappeared when he was, like, eight years old, and he's just AMAZING. He also grows so much in the TV show.

I remember when I first saw him I was intrigued, but I didn't really like him. In the first two episodes he's just the person who wants to capture the avatar. but in the third episode, I realized he was my favorite character. I always found myself rooting for him, even before season three. He's both strong and smart and awkward with funny moments. in the one episode where his ship exploded, I looked at my sister and I was talking for the next five minutes, saying "WHY WOULD THEY KILL ZUKO?!" He's just such an amazing character with an amazing redemption arc and character development. They didn't rush anything with him, they just took it super slow. He is an AMAZING character.

I mean, he's not my favorite character (though he's up there) but the way his character is written is just so clever with his whole redemption arc and he's just really a great character

Zuko is most likely one of the most well put together characters I've ever seen in any show in general. He has a very good backstory and is a very heroic person but seems very brutal and tough to try to hide it. He was never evil, even in book 1. He was just confused in life and vulnerable with no guidance and hiding it by acting stubborn and brash when on the inside he was crying for help. All he had left was his uncle Iroh and he was letting his outer personality get the best of him by making him constantly deny the love and compassion Iroh was attempting to give to him. Zuko was allowing his father's teaching of "respect" force a destiny upon him causing him to believe that he had to restore his honour when he had the answer right in front of him the whole time. He constantly let the judgment of his father get the best of him. He had to live with a broken, unhappy family with a father that treated him like a stranger and a sister that treated him like a ragdoll and a punching bag. ...more

2 Iroh Iroh is a major character in the Nickelodeon cartoon, Avatar: The Last Airbender, as well as an minor supporting character in The Legend of Korra.

Iroh is my favourite character because he's not like his brother (Ozai) who wants to conquer everything; he gives anyone advice and tea, even if they are considered an enemy. He sees the positive in everything and gives lots of wisdom. I love how he never really forces anyone to do what he wants, he tells them to find their path and to believe in themselves. He is so kind and wise that it makes me emotional sometimes. He cares for Zuko, and I think that Iroh would make a great Fire Lord. Unfortunately, his son died, and he gave up the throne. But he gave the throne to Zuko after Ozai was defeated instead of taking it back. He thinks more about other people rather than himself and wants to make everyone happy. He truly is the best character.

Iroh is simply the best character in this great show. He is as wise as he is understanding and patient. He's a better version of Dumbledore who, in a parallel manner to Harry, cares so much about Zuko that it's really heartbreaking watching the two's dynamic throughout the show.
Full disclosure: I have yet to finish but at least from a few chapters into the third book, Iroh has made a lasting impression. He makes the fullest, most quality character, especially when paired with Zuko's anguished-lost-soul storyline. His backstory is well thought out and he has quite a few funny moments as well.

Iroh: "This tea is nothing more than hot leaf juice!"
Zuko: "That's what all tea is, Uncle."
Iroh: "How can my own nephew say such a thing?!"
Uncle Iroh is amazing, powerful, and sooooo funny. He is a talented Firebender and the one who shows Zuko paternal love. Also, if you read The Promise Issue #3 comic, you'll find that he invented milk tea and boba (referred to as tapioca pearls in the comics). He says he is a 'man ahead of his time' as a response to Zuko and Aang disliking his invention, and while I'm not a big milk tea fan (no offense to anyone who is), I think that was really funny. Go Iroh!

For me, it was a tough fight between Toph and Uncle Iroh. On the scale for hilarity, they tied for me. They were both the funniest in their very ways. But what made Iroh win was his heart of purity and absolute kindness. It's like this man has no evil in him. Only wisdom. Endless wisdom and a big heart. From his unbounded love for his niece to his down-to-earth and humble self highlighted in the Tales of Ba Sing Se - that did it. It made him my favourite character. The way he snores, the way he grins when there is tea, the way he plays the tsungi horn. The way he sings, his emotions so raw.
I know it's silly and I sound dramatic asf, but the scene where Zuko cried as he apologised to Iroh for losing the right path. The instant Iroh hugged him and told him he was "never angry." I bawled.
This cartoon series is irreplaceable and legendary. It has one too many scenes that hits the heart in ways you'd never imagine a cartoon will ever. Hell, even real life action movies can't move ...more

3 Toph Toph Beifong is a fictional character in Nickelodeon's animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, voiced by Jessie Flower in the original series and Kate Higgins and Philece Sampler in the sequel series.

She's so funny, brave, tough, and creative! Toph is a on-of-a-kind character. At age six, she ran away from her overprotective parents who didn't love her, and learned earthbending from the badgermoles. She is blind, but she can see the truth. She taught Aang earthbending, has a great taste for nicknames, and most importantly, invented metalbending, changing the world forever.

My FAVORITE character hands down. I mean, she's a POWERHOUSE and invented metal bending as a CHILD, and is literally blind and somehow makes that a strength. Plus her attitude and sass is matched only by Sokka.

If I were to start anywhere with Toph, it's her introduction. She's introduced as a total beast, then we get more background as she's actually a member of the Beifong family, which adds more exploration in her character as she doesn't want to be seen as a helpless little girl, but as the best in her field. Then she joins Team Avatar, when they start making the blind jokes & I gotta say, the blind jokes are funny. She soon became the founder of Metalbending, which at that moment, was low-key one of the most badass scenes in the show. She's low-key one of the best if not THE BEST character.

My absolute favorite character in T.V.. Period. Her design, her voice actor, her creativity, her personality, the fact that she practically invented an entire type if bending. She's just perfect. And unlike Katara ( who I still really like as a character) they made katara a bit too perfect to the point where it can get just a LITTLE bit annoying. Toph acts like a normal character who I wish got at least a LITTLE more focus. I mean goodness, they couldn't have replaced ONE of the many many katara episodes for toph? Really? But she is in my opinion, the best character in T.V.. history.

4 Aang Avatar Aang is a fictional character and the protagonist of Nickelodeon's animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender, voiced by Zach Tyler Eisen. Aang is the last surviving Airbender, a monk of the Air Nomads' Southern Air Temple.

As great as Zuko's arc was, Aang's arc was also incredibly huge. Not only does he learn all 4 elements, he learns forgiveness, responsibility, and the courage to stay true to himself. Aang is also a fantastic combination of goofy and serious, which I don't think I have seen a lot in most characters.

First off, Zuko is a great character good back story and everything. Honestly I love all the characters and the show but Aang is the best for these reasons.

He ran away in training to be avatar because the monks were going to take him away from Giotzu. Thus resulting in him falling into the ocean, surrounding himself in a ball of ice.

He wakes up 100 years later to find out that AS soon as he left the fire nation attacked his people, but he doesn't know that yet. He is just a fun-loving, silly, and at most times juvenile until season 3. Which was arguably his best season. He goes on epic adventures like the eclipse and to that special library, through ba sing se to find appa, and then the final battle.

They meshed him together perfectly showing his progress in maturity through the seasons. Who couldn't love him? He is the most powerful bender ever! Through his epic journeys he grows up too become the mature, powerful bender he becomes. As he beats the firelord by ...more

Aang was a great main character, they made sure to explore a lot of his personality so that he wasn't bland. I was very glad that they added parts where he wasn't his usual self... It helped him be a much better character.

Aang is by far my most FAVORITE character in the entire series. His character development throughout the show is amazing, and he definitely has his moments. I especially like how the writers of the show first introduce Aang as an adorable goofy kid who had to deal with a lot of stress and didn't want to be the Avatar because of the pressure, but overtime became more mature and more wise. He eventually accepted his role and knew his responsibilities to the world. What I like most about Aang is that he's very gentle, understanding, kind and forgiving. He's especially a good friend to all of Team Avatar. People insult him for being a wimp and a weakling because he didn't kill Ozai, but they fail to understand that it's how he was raised and it's in his nature. He's always willing to give second chances, even to the Fire Lord. I loved watching him grow up and make the decisions of an adult rather than a child, and I admire his cleverness and determination every time I re-watch this series

5 Sokka Sokka is a fictional character in Nickelodeon's animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel series The Legend of Korra.

Sokka is a super funny sarcastic character, and he's also a generally good person. I loved the desert episode where he drank the cactus juice, and it was so sad when he lost Space Sword and Boomerang! He's selfless and knows when he has to give up to help his friends. He really cares about Katara and Aang, and then Zuko when he got to know him. He's definitely in my top ten favorite characters.

The truth is, he didn't give me a first good impression with the sexist talk and everything, but when he learned his lesson I started to warm up to this dude. I realized how underrated people may see him and how people can mistake him as just that funny regular guy in the group. But now I see him as a relatable character because of his doubts and insecurities as the only non-bender in the early parts of the series. But in the end, he finds his purpose as a leader and protector which is why "Sokka's Master" is one of my favorite episodes. Also, he's funny.

Sokka is an underrated character. He was not jut comic relief but instead a very complex character with multiple personality traits and dynamic character development. Sokka always felt very real to me because he was not just there to be the eccentric inventor or the trigger for laughs. He was deeper and more complex than people gave him credit for. He desperately wants to be a great warrior like his father and his insecurities lead to his arrogance and sexism in the first season ( arrogance that get him into many comedic situations). He realizes throughout the show that he is an asset to the team due to his creativity and ingenuity. He is also very supportive of others and will always make people laugh. In the end he embraces his abilities and in his own way becomes his father's son. He is also very protective of other especially his sister. Another interesting part of his personality is his natural skepticism. He is the only one who does not trust Jet when they first meet him. I ...more

This character is hilarious, but I love him so much, the fact that he loses his self worth and finds it again within a sword just kills me, he is the best leader, and can't be more like his father; strong, independent, a leader, adorable, I love him so much.

6 Azula Princess Azula is a fictional character and antagonist of Nickelodeon's animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Azula is such a well-written, complex character. Her slow descent into insanity after her world view, 'Fear is more reliable than trust', is completely shattered after Zuko, Mai and Ty Lee betray her. Her mental breakdown at the end really humanised her as well as lightened a spark of sympathy from me for her and I'm sure it did the same for a lot of other people.

And of course, there is her relationship with her mother. She never felt loved or cared for by her mother so she turned to her father, Ozai, instead. Her father soon became power-hungry and cruel so in order to survive and stay the "golden child", she followed his fundamentals. This estranged her connection with her mother, Ursa, even more so a divide started to form between the siblings and their favoured parent.

Furthermore, Azula is confident, cold, calculating and intelligent, not to mention her striking beauty. Azula dominated nearly every scene she was in. She was so well put together and perfect that ...more

I think she could have become a much better person if her childhood had been different. like, say, Zuko. He started bad, but changed because of his banishment. Azula could have been a much better person. I think deep down she really does care for people, but doesn't want to show it. She's a horrible person at times, but the final battle for Zuko and Azula, with the music and the beauty of the fire, it practically had me in tears. She's such an amazing character, the best female character in both TLOK and ATLA

WARNING: This is gonna be really long,

I felt sorry for Azula, she was a powerful firebending prodigy and a good bad guy, but I wish they could've redeemed her in the series. There's just something more to her than just the badass, sadistic and manipulative bad guy. The writers of avatar were better than that. Azula was a complex person with a complex personality and complex story. I wish we saw more of her in the series. It wasn't her fault she became insane. She wasn't born evil. If only things worked out for her. She had a messed up life and family her mother loved her, but was just concerned for her to the point where Azula thought her mother ignored and despised her. Azula was only shown disregard from her childhood. She thought Zuko was the only one her mother truly loved. This caused Azula to lost her trust.

Zuko wasn't really the 'responsible big brother' that Azula needed. Zuko showed only weakness, hate, and cowardice towards Azula. This might have caused Azula ...more

Azula is one of the most complex characters in the whole series, to be honest. She was raised as a literal child soldier because of her exceeding abilities and talent in firebending; she was a prodigy. Ozai corrupted her with his perfect ideology.

There was no one to support and help her to understand love, something she was never shown in her entire life. Not Ursa or even Iroh were there for her. They only showed a lot of attention to Zuko.

In the end, Azula is a tragic, misguided and abused character, just as much as Zuko if not, more. Her end was tragic as well. She started to break down after all the emotions she hid inside and it tore her apart.

First, Zuko betrayed the Fire Nation (though it's debatable if that was a cause of her collapse in her mental health). Then, Mai left, saying she loved Zuko more than she feared Azula - which actually fits what she though her mother thought of her. Afterwards, Ty Lee left her. Finally, came the most heartbreaking ...more

7 Katara Katara is a fictional character in Nickelodeon's animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.

Female characters in fantasy are usually a disappointment. Too often the writer will model them into a stereotype of some some flawless Mary-Sue, object and prize of affection, or token "girl of the group." Katara is the heart of team avatar and its mediator along with and. She is the nurturer who keeps the group together. Kindly nature, her story is flecked with some stubborn and controlling moments made relatable by the fact that she had to be a mother to her clan early on after loosing her own. Her repeatably dutiful, traditional personality, while writhe in our world world is one rarely seen in high fantasy. Defying trend and viewer expectation, Katara represents an unobtrusive character that Avatar would be remiss without.

My favorite Nickelodeon character. Katara is a lovely combination of kind, weak, strong, insecure, confident, brave, scared, relatable, persistent, and feministic. I loved her from "The Boy In The Iceberg" to The Legend of Korra. Such a great character.

I saw Katara as a figure of feminism in the very first episode and I think she ended up living in that image. She fought for her place as a woman under the teachings of (sexist) Pakku and she ends up being one of the strongest benders we see in the series. She's not just a fierce and courageous woman, but also a kind and selfless person who ends becoming that mother figure we all know and probably all love. I just love the strength she embodied and I hope more people do too.

Katara is VERY underrated. I didn't know she was hated... When watching the series she was a really good character! I also like the interaction between her and Aang... Definitely one of the best relationships I've seen in cartoons!

8 Appa

Awesome. Still not entirely sure what kind of creature he is, but I call him a six legged flying bison with a giant arrow along his head and back.

I always saw Appa as some sort of Toothless to Aang. These two should never be apart! They're both 10,012 years old for crying out loud!

From the start, he was so adorable. Yip yip! It was so cute seeing the flashback of Aang and APPA together for the first time. When Aang said "I guess that means we'll always be together" just warmed my heart!

Appa should be right after zuko! Appa is the best besides zuko. He has saved team avatat a couple of times and provides them with fast travel. Boo to the sandbenders who captured him and the circus guy who was cruel to him.

9 Ty Lee

Ty Lee is a force to be re conned with. She has taken Katara, Suki, Azula, and many other opponents. Her Agility, Chi blocking, and endless list of skills are great.

While Ty lee isn't one of my favorite characters, I would like to talk about one reason I like her:
She isn't stupid.
I know it sounds like a given that I wouldn"t enhoy a stupid character, hear me out. She's this very perky and nice person, the kind of character that already makes the audience feel like she's on the wrong side. While this kind of character isn't exclusive to ATLA, the fact that she isn't the stupid comic relief of the villain team. She's smart and a good fighter, making her a valuble member of the team and better character.

She is very sweet and friendly and it was very she'd to believe she was a bad guy at firs.t I honestly just thought she did it because of all the attention she was getting. But when she joined the Kyoshi warriors I was really happy?

Wow, she's just fantastic. She's pretty, strong, sweet, and just pure kindness. I think she helped Azula because she is the only one who really sees how much she hurt.

10 Mai

Mai is such a baddie, and hands down my favorite character (except maybe Zuko). She saved everyones asses countless times, and Team Avatar would be nothing without her. Some people be arguing, "oH, ShE DOeSn't CaRE aBOuT ZuKO's fEeLInGs." LIKE BRUH. Did your forget when she told Azula, "You miscalculated. I love Zuko more than I fear you." Like, that scene was straight up fireee. Also when people say they that Zuko and Mai shouldn't end up with eachother, I'm like, I'LL WHOOP YO ASS, cause they're just so cute together! They both had a crush on eachother since they were kids! Guys seriously, they BELONG together! I SHIP THEM

Shes a ASSASSIN. Nobody gets as many kill chances as she does. she has the most pins, and open kill windows. Just imagine if this wasn't a kids show.

I bet this sack of sighs is me if I ever find myself to be an extremely skilled fighter who would love something to do in life. I'm glad they gave her some time in the spotlight during The Beach because that gave more insight into her character and the person she is. And I just hope people would stop giving her unreasonable hate.

Mai is a total badass who gets so much hate because of stupid fangirls. Pointless arguments made: 1. She's useless, only created as a love interest. Well you know what? Without Mai, half of team Avatar would've taken a nice dip in the boiling lake. Get your facts straight. 2. She and Zuko don't go well together. Once again, she saved his sorry butt even after he dumped her, and she stood up to Azula, straight up saying that she loves him more than she fears her. 3. Her personality is drab and undeveloped. Someone clearly hasn't seen "The Beach". And she's got some funny lines, too. example: "Just take the bear." 4. She's not a good fighter. Mai has beaten firebenders, Kyoshi warriors, KATARA(in case you forgot), etc. Mai is awesome, my 2nd favorite female character on the show(yes, I like her more than Katara(though Katara is awesome); However, Toph will always be #1)

The Contenders
11 Suki

"'I was treating you like a girl when I should've been treating you like a warrior!'
'I know I'm a warrior, but I'm a girl too.' *kiss*" She is what every woman/girl should strive to be. Not afraid to get your hands dirty, but accepts who you are. Everyone is made who they were, and it's up to everyone to decide who you're going to be, what you decide to master, I love Suki and Katara

Does anybody else remember her spider man scene at the boiling rock. That was epic she along with the rest of the Kyoshi warriors are awesome.

I don't even know why people have a problem with the shipping of sokka & suki. It was the most developed ship, as suki helped him grow, and suki during sokkas stay at her village liked how funny he was and how he was willing to eat his words and wear a dress to get stronger. Sokka & yue where cute, but it really wasn't much better as it was more sokka that seemed to have developed a crush over her. Toph all he saw her as a friend, the crush was a one time thing by toph and she went to zuko once he came in. Azula just plan makes no sense as both showed no interest in each other. Ty lee he seemed more intimidated at her than anything and was fine with telling her that he has a girlfriend.

Despite what you might believe otherwise, it was no out of no where like zumai and they trusted each other and got along better than they did, and it wasn't a confusing half forced mess like kataang. And it wasn't just plan @$$ forced like S1 lok's makorra.

Besides that, taang & sukka is ...more

Suki. Is. Wonderful. I. Love. Suki. She's a nonbender that, in her first appearance, takes out the avatar, The best water bender in the world, and one of the smartest people, however sexist he may have been at the time, in the world of avatar, all while wearing a dress. That looks to be very heavy for that matter. AND she's a better warrior than Sokka.

12 Momo

WARNING: This is long. But if you want someone to help you with your votes, please read it.
Momo is very funny. He's also smart, for an animal. Plus, he's so cute! The way he always sticks with Aang is just adorable. He even got food for Sokka when Sokka first met him and wanted to eat him. In the Tales of Ba Sing Se, he had his own, litttle part that reminds you just how much he actually matters in the series. Besides, we can't leave all the humor to Sokka, now can we? That's Sokka and Momo's job together. They show that when they eat the cactus juice in the desert. I think you should vote Momo. He's too far down. He should be soaring in the sky with Appa and Aang. Not all the way down here. Help me bring Momo higher.
- Kittykitty23

Momo is the best. Right now, Momo's all the way down in twelfth place! Momo is funny and smart. I loved the episode in Ba Sing Se where Momo had his own little part all centered on him. That entire thing was great! And the cactus juice! The cactus juice! (You know what I mean by that, right?) The cactus juice Momo and Sokka drank after they found the spirit library in the desert. Momo is the best. Why are everyone else's responses so short? Vote Momo! He should be up there flying with Appa! But he's not. So vote Momo!

Momo's way too far down. He should be much higher! He's funny, he's adorable, and he's very smart for an animal. He showed compassion for Appa in the tales of Ba Sing Se. Whoa nothing has changed on the list since like three months ago and there aren't even any new Momo comments. By the way it's like four weeks into the school year of 2021 - 2022. Just so you know when this was written.

I just love dis flying monkey. Especially after I watched The Tales of Basingsay 'cause it reminded me that this little guy is still a character of this show who has been there almost from the start.

13 Bumi

Bumi is more important than one realises and is nit just any other side character. He was born just around the birthdate Avatar Aang did. He is Aang's last physical living node which bridges/links his past to his present. He greatly symbolizes childhood and past connections to Aang's life way before. He also is important since he thinks in many other different techniques and believes their are better solutions what seems obvious. In the second book when Omashu is destroyed it shows how Aang is losing his childhood and is moving on to when he left/escaped the Western Air Temple. Man of the other complementary items/attachments allocated with Bumi are usually purely comical. However he is still a huge inspiration that you can always be what you want to be even when it seems impossible while goofing off.

He may seem pretty goofy at first, but he is actually pretty wise. He taught Aang a few valuable lessons, and taught him how to find the ideal earth-bending teacher, which would eventually lead to Aang discovering Toph. Bumi's wisdom really helped them throughout the show.

Strictly speaking, Zuko is better character, but a lot of people underrate Bumi. I mean, the guy single-handedly liberated Omashu, in one of the most badass sequences in the show. And he can even earthbend just with his face! Sorry Toph, you're awesome for being able to see without eyes and discover metalbending, but Bumi gets my vote.

Is this Uncle Bumi or Aang's 100 year old friend Bumi?

14 Bolin

This is an ATLA (Avatar: The Last Airbender) list. I don't get why Bolin from LOK (Legend of Korra) is here. They are two different series, they are just part of the same world.

Bolin's innocence just makes me feel so much affection for him. He is very pure and genuine. He is my #1 favorite from LoK.

Bolin is one of the best characters in LOK and one of the few that could've fit in ATLA. He's awesome

I do not like him.It's like he tried to be as funny as sokka and failed.

15 Jet

When I first watched Avatar, I met Jet and thought, "Huh, he's a cool character" but then when he betrayed the gaang, I hated him. Even when he showed up later, I hated him. When he became a better person, I hated him. But when he died, I didn't really know why, but I was super upset. Then I rewatched the show and found myself loving him. He had a redemption arc, and made up with the gaang. actually, when I watched the episode with my sister, I paused the part where he died and said, "Did Jet just... die?" I swear I had not watched the Ember Island Players, and I said that. We laughed later when we found out

Jet is an interesting character that meets the eye. I'll admit, I hate how they portray him as the cliche good looking guy that starts up as the hero which turns out is not the hero and is actually a villain. What I like about him is his decision to change his ways and become a good guy for once. that's what made him original and a fitting character since he had a horrible past which is by far worse than Zuko's problems. I'm dissapointing that he was killed by Long Feng because he had so much room for a great character development. I wish he could've take his anger out on Colonel Mongke since he was practically cursed by him. Rather than kill him off why not focus on making him a better character, Team Avatar are great and all but the protagonists don't have to be the only relevant characters. Give Jet some attention.

Jet is a little different comparing to the other characters Team Avatar met. When they first met Jet he seemed like a great leader who want to help out those who suffered with the Fire Nation after his own experience with them. For the most part it's true but Sokka was the only character that knew Jet's plot for revenge making Katara mistrust him when he flood a whole village in an attempt to kill Fire Benders and innocent lives. Jet soon realizes his mistakes and wants to make amends and heads to Ba Sing Se. I think the most memorable moment of Jet is when he met up with Aang and the others again and was wiling to help them find Appa by leading them into the Dai Li base of Lake Laogai. Sadly this was the first and last good thing he did for anybody, he died after getting hit by Long Feng's Earthbending which left him fatally wounded. I guess anybody can agree that Jet deserve that second chance that's why I think Jet is one of the best characters that happened in the series. RIP Jet.

Don't hate him because of his beginning. He lost both of his parents because of the fire nation also he redeemed himself. Plus, come on, Katara basically went crazy trying to get to the soldier who killed her mother. I'm not saying he didn't do anything wrong. I'm saying that we should give him a second chance, just like Zuko.

16 Roku

Roku is one of the strongest Avatars ever and his fire bending abilities greatly surpass any fire lord. Also he can simultaneously bend the elements. In addition, his lava bending abilities are incredibly strong, so strong than he can bend multiple thick streams of magma at once. Lastly, without even trying he beat Fire Lord Sozin in less than 15 seconds.

He trained for about a decade, then he got married, intimidated and infuriated Sozin (provoking him even more to start the hundred year war), then he saved the inhabitants (by this I mean about 50 people) of a puny little island, and was left to die, THE END. Didn't do anything to stop the hundred year war (which I bet killed millions of people). Real cool Avatar.

I have this theory that Katara is the reincarnation of Avatar Roku's wife - Ta Min.

He's still awesome, even if he still believed in Sozin when he was at his jerkiest.

17 Korra Avatar Korra is the title lead character in Nickelodeon's animated television series The Legend of Korra, in which she is depicted as the current incarnation of the Avatar, responsible for maintaining peace and balance in the world.

Korra is an inspiring character and a fantastic protagonist. It's quite rare to see a strong realistic female lead in western animation. Especially in a Nickelodeon show. Although she is at first tomboyish, hot-headed and a bit reckless. She eventually grows into a mature, wise and a charismatic Avatar of great power and spiritual understanding. A worthy successor of Aang indeed.
Her character development is well written and her humanity is accurately depicted and the writers were wise not to focus too much on her as a hero, but rather as a person and also a good role model. For boys and girls alike.

Her arc was so good, though I don't like how they wrote off her development in the end as simply being "I had to learn compassion." For me, it was about how she was able to reconcile with herself in the final season. I loved Korra from the start, even though many people disliked her temper. She was fiercely driven, powerful, and unapologetic, and she shined as a character.

She starts off as hot-headed, reckless and a bit selfish. However, throughout the series, she matures into a more wise and spiritual avatar. Korra's flaws is what makes her a great realistic and inspiring female lead.
This generation's kids are lucky to have such an inspiring role model.

Korra is so underrated as a protagonist. She has so much depth. Her suffering feels so real, her triumphs feel so real, her flaws feel so real. It's just outstanding writing and VA.

A pretty bad-ass character, when you think about it. That mole she has is actually quite a formidable animal.

Am I the only one who remembers this character and hates her with a burning passion?

19 Asami

Hugely underrated. Asami is the most genuine character in LOK. She is unfathomably honest and faithful, understanding, and supportive. She never fails to find justice and fight for it, even when she's double crossed by her own father. Plus, she's unrivaled in mechanical operation. Varrick may have her beat when it comes down to inventing, but he literally becomes clueless trying to operate anything, even his own inventions. Asami is the best Pilot/Operative in the series. Also, she can keep up with benders in combat with her Future Industry Shock Glove. To top it all off she's gorgeous.

I love her, she's so cool, and I feel for her. I haven't lost my parents, but I still feel for her.

Basically just a character to be shipped randomly. And her most annoying ship actually happened on the show...smh

Pretty awesome character

20 The Duke
21 Haru

He was an okay character.

22 Ursa

The biggest question I have about avatar (along with sparky sparky boom man). What happened to her? I have no idea. She was banished...and so?! If anyone had information I would gladly take it.

Ursa was one of my favourite characters on the show. Her unconditional love for Zuko was just beautiful. She even died to save him! I think she's an underrated character. Plus she's one of the prettiest characters on the show.

A beautiful character. She was so brave and kind. It made me cry when I found out that she saved Zuko. Wish she was in ATLA more.

What happened to her is finally revealed in the graphic novel The Search

23 Piandao

He is so amazing, the fact that he sees Sokka as, not a failure, but a masterpiece to be resculpted into something with more worth and more honor than anything.

My favorite OOTWL member, other than Iroh, cause he's like Batman. No powers, but uses his incredible skill to fight alongside bending masters. He also trained Zuko and sokka very well

24 Yue

Yue is too far down. She became the moon to save her tribe. She's in last place! I mean, how's Haru above her? (No offense to Haru lovers) She should be higher. Even if she wasn't the greatest character.

WHAT?! She's so low! She may not be perfect for Sokka but that is no reason to treat her differently as a character. She was brave and a perfect princess. OK, so she was basic, but she was a side character. She wasn't supposed to be so emotionally built. She's great.

A strong character doesn't have to fight or try and get attention, Yue was a perfect ballence between, bravery and tenderness. She showed love to Sokka but at the same time did what was right for her people and the world. She should AT LEAST be in the top 10!

Okay yes I don't like her because I found her kind of boring but she shouldn't be at the bottom. She did sacrifice herself for the moon spirit after all.

25 Hakoda

He is the best dad ever, he is so accepting and kind, I want him as my dad!

Dad of the year.
