Top 10 Avatar: The Last Airbender CharactersHere is were you'll find the best avatar characters.
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
Zuko's the bomb because he's like me in terms of personality and because he has a bad past like I do. One example is that he has a bad dad like I do.
Those Zuko haters who badmouthed him are narrow-minded lairs who can't get past his faults. If I'm him, I'd burn all of them.
As for those who claim that he's goofy and funny, they're liars. How the hell can you think that he's funny? He went through a lot of tough times. Maybe you should put yourselves in his shoes and experience what he experienced.
Another reason why I like Zuko is because he's serious-minded. And I like serious character more than funny ones because I can relate to them. Besides, I gave up on the usual kind of humor long ago, especially since I treat the word funny like an insult due to people using humor as an excuse to antagonize.
Zuko is an absolutely brilliant and dynamic character. His struggle is so genuine. I think I'm one of the few people who liked him from the very beginning. Even when he was the temperamental antagonist it was apparent very early on that there was much more to his character than meets the eye even before his back story was revealed. Any scene with Zuko is a scene worth watching. He is just a fascinating character to watch. The writers outdid themselves and even all these years after the show was first aired there a still lessons to be learned from Zuko. Overall he is by far one of if not the best character in the history of cartoons.
Where do I start? Zuko is possibly the most well-built and dynamic character that has ever been created in any form of media. He goes through so many struggles and despite all of the criticism, problems, battles, and doubts about himself, he was able to break through the proverbial walls and become the man that he was always destined to be. Zuko worked hard to survive and succeed, his uncle never too far away, waiting for his nephew to reach out to him and ask for his help. Zuko started out as the first villain that we ever saw and became the single most memorable character in the whole series! Zuko truly embodies what a real life looks like with all the struggles and doubts. He is the proof that a good character can actually be created if the time is put into them.
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.
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
I have always thought that Iroh was the best character, both for his sheer firebending skill, but also for his capacity to understand almost any situation and provide advice in a way that any of the other characters, aside from the constantly angsty Zuko, are glad to receive.
Iroh was likely one of the greatest firebenders during ALTA, possibly only matched by Azula and Ozai, and even then his knowledge and understanding of firebending were far superior.
In the end, he lived a man, and died a titan. His funeral (by the time of The Legend of Korra) would have been the greatest the Four Nations would have seen in centuries. Zuko would have spent anything the Fire Nation had to honor his uncle, and I have no doubt that all of the White Lotus and Team Avatar would have been there to lay him to rest.
You can judge a man by how he lives, and by how he dies. Iroh would have been the exemplar of both.
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.
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.
Okay, who doesn't like Toph? Anybody? Nope everyone likes Toph. Toph is my favorite character because while she may seem a bit self absorbed she has a reason too. Her parents were incredibly overprotective and she never even was allowed to make a friend. Imagine this, your whole life you are blind and you were trapped in the house. Then you find a way to show off your abilities and gain confidence so you don't always get stuck with nothing to do. But no matter what your parents will not accept you for who you are. This is Tophs life and everyone ignores her backstory in favor of Zukos. It's so annoying! Toph went through a lot and everyone ignores that! By the way I don't hate Zuko I just think it's ridiculous the amount of attention he gets. Okay now onto Tophs personality, she is hilarious! All those jokes she does are funny and I laugh at them all the time. Another good thing is while she doesn't show it she does care about the gang. Also the mini crush she has on Sokka is great! ...more
Toph is #1 to me. She's funny, strong, knows how to take care of herself, created metal bending, but has a disability in which no other characters have even a slight disability. She can't see, but she even jokes about it, & isn't used as a handicap most of the time & she mostly jokes about it with the other GAang. But she isn't all OP though. She can't really fight on sand or attack people in the sky without help, & she can b pretty rude at times, so she isn't like a Mary Sue at all. And then we get into her family problems where even when she proves herself, they feel the need to protect & baby her. So she's a well rounded & fun character.
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 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
Aang is such a brave young boy, but everyone seems to think of him as an immature, stupid, and carefree little boy. Aang has gone through so much in his life, and yet he's strong enough to be optimistic. He can come across as immature, but he's a very daring, courageous, and compassionate boy inside. People only like him because he's the protagonist of the whole show, but you have to look deeper inside of him to fully appreciate his strong heart.
Twinkle-Toes was not your stereotypical male hero. He embodied being gentle, humble, and kind. Traits that are not usually prioritized in the media to depict masculinity or male heroism. I just love how the world never brought him down to their level. He flew above it, free from revenge or anger. He was a peaceful spirit in a war torn time and he was exactly what the world needed. Aang showed the world that kindness is not weakness. I love him!
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
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.
Except in the pilot the 2nd best character; great dry wit, incredibly clever and creative, immeasurably important to events that transpire in the series all without being a bender and doesn't let his baggage cloud his judgement or define his actions (unlike so many of his compatriots). Only reason he misses number 1 for me, is that "Zuko Alone" is one of the best episodes of T.V. I have ever seen.
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.
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
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
I just love how strong, cunning and cool she is. She is totally the best firebender and the greatest villain in the entire series. And she's totally cute with her awkward lack of social skills.
Despite what other people thinks, she's not even pure evil: she's just the product of an abusive environment. Being a clever child, she quickly understood how to appeal to a cruel and authoritarian father. What did she gain, acting like this? Her mother started being partly afraid of her behaviour (so similar to that of her hateful husband), showing favoritism towards the meek Zuko. Azula's loneliness increased, together with the feelings of being unloved and unlovable. Scared of rejection and abandonment, she built relationships based on fear instead of honest friendship. The betrayal of Mai of Ty Lee was definitively the last straw that finally drove her into total madness (and what an awesome breakdown it is, full of pain and despair).
Does it mean all of her dreadful deeds are ...more
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.
I don't understand how people can call Katara cardboard or boring because her personal growth throughout the series was apparent - from the naïve girl jealous of Aang's waterbending to someone powerful enough to defeat Azula and let her fury over her mother's death go. I know people tend to prefer Toph because she's a rebellious powerful tomboyish character, but even though I like Toph I love how they made Katara motherly, and unafraid to show her emotions, yet also incredibly powerful and feminist. These days strong female characters just have to balk at housework and other traditionally feminine tasks and be a masculine warrior, but you can be strong and a little feminine and Katara showed this to young girls. And, If it weren't for katara, would Aang have been found in the iceberg?
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.
NOOO! This is going to be a long rant so get ready. She is terrible, she is always getting in the way, she is useless, and she is sooo annoying! First off she is always crying about hope and her feelings, your mom died... Aang's entire race died not to mention the person he called dad (Gyatso) and he isn't going around crying about it. Also she mastered water bending in like a day only because the plot needed her to, prior to going to the northern water tribe aang was better than Katara, after aang is bad and Katara is a master. She is always getting in the way! The best example is the fight scene with Zuko and Azula, which is the BEST fight scene ever, and Zuko was winning, he was close to beating her but Katara was there and Zuko had to take a dive for her or else she would have been dead. The only reason Katara was able to beat Azula is that there just happened to be a sewer that Katara froze Azula in. She is so annoying! The worst is when Zuko joins the group and he looses his ...more
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.
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.
The episodes without Appa made me realize how much I loved the big, furry guy! Plus, Aang's anguish over it was absolutely incredible!
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.
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.
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
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)
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.
One of the best things about Mai is that she doesn't fear Azula because that is the one thing that everyone else does. She is also skilled at knife-throwing - you see a lot of benders in the series but Mai is the only knife-thrower. You also see that she cares about Zuko a lot, even though he dumped her (saved him from Boiling Rock, need I go on?)
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
"'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
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.
I love Suki so much, she does so much for the show. Also she is the only character that can really contribute to the hand to hand fighting on the show without havering any bending abilities. Though some may say "what about sokka" he did a lot in many of the battles, but the hand to hand combat not so much
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.
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.
Momo and APPA are so cute! Momo was so adorable and I felt so bad for him when APPA was gone. He even saved those tigers in Tales Of Ba Sing Se and shows that he is more than just a pet lemur.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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 just like me... Brave, Good looking, complicated. He was my favourite character by far in the series. I can't believe the fact that they killed him off. I could imagine Jet helping team Avatar in the final battle. He could have even saved Sokka and Toph instead of Suki doing it. He was such an amazing character and the best one in my opinion. He definitely deserves the number 1 spot on the list.
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?
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
He was an okay character.
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.
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.
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
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
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!
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.
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.
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 one of the best characters. How is she 10? She's strong, powerful, and fierce. She also changes so much throughout the series and becomes an incredible avatar.
Okay, where did this photo of Jin come from? As of writing this, I am seeing a rather lewd picture of Jin for her profile photo. Not that I'm complaining or anything, it is just a curious choice of picture..0-0
I didn't know her name was Jin?! I LOVE HER! That would have been cute.
Did anyone else but me totally ship her and Zuko?
