Top 10 Worst Avatar: The Last Airbender Charactersrockrockmountain
The Top Ten
I always saw Zhao as the char that whispered in my ear "See? Zuko is not that bad... I'm more evil".
He is a character that wasn't well developed and overall not that cool.
Yea he was one dimensional but most characters take all 3 seasons to progress he only has one. That being said can I take a moment to point out the absolute pointlessness of this list? It's a list of "bad" characters from a show known for having awesome characters.
I just really hate this guy - PeeledBananaV 7 Comments
My problem with her is how much she complains about her mothers death. Sure her mother was killed right in front of her eyes but that's nothing compared to other people. Here's a list.
Aang- Was alienated from the by other people because he was the avatar. Them had his entire race wiped out along with almost everyone he cared for.
Zuko- Had to deal with losing his mother as well, but with the added bonus that his own father scared him for life and humiliated by his whole nation.
Iroh- Had his only beloved son killed in a pointless then was humiliated by his whole nation for retreating.
Sokka- Had his mother killed and the one figure he idolized in his life, his father, leave him for the longest period of time.
And none of these characters whine about what happened to them as much as Katara does.
She's so full of her self almost thought the entire series, it's always got to be about her loosing her mother or the fact that she wanted to learn water bending and got jealous that The Avatar was obviously gifted in learning the element of water before she could. Sure every is imperfect but not everyone complains as much as she does and is she really that important to the group's victory? If love were not involved the group would do just fine with a more mature waterbender.
Katara is constantly getting in the way of Team Avatar, and is extremely self righteous and condescending to others. Everyone credits Katara with the defeat of Azula, but if she hadn't been standing there, Zuko would have easily beat her. In addition, she toyed with Aang's emotions. Also, when Zuko was losing his firebending and she had the nerve to say "Maybe you're just not as good as you think you are," my only thoughts were "HE BEAT YOU SO MANY TIMES SHUT UP! "
She is too annoying and complains so much and was very mean to Zuko at firstV 39 Comments
You know, I truly liked Mai. Yes she was created to be a love interest for Zuko, but you know what, I thought they were cute together. It was nice to see two gloom bags be happy when they are together. Her personality I found interesting, it was a nice contrast I a cast usually full of psychos and cheerful optimists. As for her having no bending, I think this made her more fun. It's nice to see that characters are able to hold there own without the fancy tricks. People also complain about how Katara and the rest of the cast instantly forgave her after what happened, to which I respond that they kind of forgave the fire nation as a whole at the end. Overall I feel that Mai is an over hated character that should be lower on this list. But I do wish she got more development as a character.
Have you guys realized the only reason she was created was to be Zuko's love interest? Like Ginny in Harry Potter.
I dislike Mai because she is so... emotionless. I don't care that she is a badass, she does not have empathy and was very rude to Zuko in many times; their relationship was toxic as hell.
She's boring.V 16 Comments
Wow, hating a character that was added for comic relief, and provided good comic relief.
Come on he wasn't that bad, and he added extra humour to the seri - ShadowArceus736
Oh no! My poor cabbages! Waa! What you have just heard is an imitation of"Cabbage Merchant ".
I thought he was pretty funny. And there are some pretty crazy fanfics about him wanting to exact revenge on team avatar in honor of his cabbages.V 2 Comments
"Oh come on people! She's an awesome villain and makes the show 10 times better! I love her but I hate her! I love to hate her! "
What a hypocrite you are. How you're hypocritical is that you can't seem to make up mind about whether or not hate Azula.
You wish that Azula's awesome and makes the show ten times better. All she did was be a super spoiled brat thought that she could do whatever she wanted if it meant terrorizing the hell out of others.
Besides you, Azula's also hypocritical in that she's a perfectionist and claimed that some guy or guys were shallow when she was being shallow herself.
Tell me, would you want to spend the rest of your life with a gal who bosses you around and threatens you if you don't do exactly as she wants? Think about it.
Azula is my second favourite female character after Toph and I'll tell you why. There's definitely more to her than meets the eye. She spent her childhood being praised as the firebending prodigy of the Fire Nation, yet never got the love and acceptance from her own mother, who seems to consider her a monster, or so she thought. You can't really blame her for her actions, she was taught to do so by Ozai since her childhood, and she may look old but actually she was just 14 in Avatar: The Last Airbender! Would a 14-year-old kid turn against the father that is their only family member left in the world? Zuko was raised by Ursa as a child, which resulted in who he is now. Azula on the other hand was taught to be sadistic since she was young. If she doesn't do so, even her own father wouldn't accept her anymore. She grew up unloved by her mother, envious of Zuko for having their mother's love, but she hides her feelings and emotions, having been taught so since birth. Zuko has support ...more - Goku02
Azula suffered more than most characters on the show and still people see her as a true villain. If anything blame Ozai and Ursa! Ursa hated Azula even as a child, and that was wrong. Calling your child a monster is a terrible thing to do. And it eventually drove Azula crazy! I think she should be appreciated instead of hated for at least having some sensibility! Haters gonna Hate
She sucks Ozai's cock. :PV 17 Comments
What why is the good people on this list
Why cabbage merchant he's funny
Why aang he beat my worst character ozai
Why suki she's very cool
Why zuko this list
I like everyone on this list but azula and ozai they ruined years of zuko's life. They need to die but I know aang is too sad to end a man's life I understand because he doesn't hate. I can't believe some cool people is on this list he should be 1 he's at the bottom this sucks he used to be good but he just had to become fire lord and burned zuko's face that's JUST MESSED UP! Azula just likes playing stupid games with the avatar and who could live in ashes. I feel bad for every good people and definitely team avatar they lost the people they loved thanks to sozin, ozai and some evil fire nation. I'm glad there lives are tortured and I'm glad the war is over but I hate this list ozai and azula needs to be at the top and I also want jet to be higher I guess he died or something

Yep another dumb evil bastard who wanted to take over the world except he's cartoon man I love this show
Yeah, Ozai should be on this list. He's a really one-dimensional character, and seemed to be evil ju st because he could. Not a lot of character development at all.V 4 Comments
These comments make me vomit. I'm not much of a korra fan & she is far from my favorite character, but the hatred for her that I'm seeing is stupid. Of course she isn't like aang. I'd hate her if she was just some aang clone. It's good that she was her own character. And aang was not mature in the beginning like she was. He dragged katara into a place that he knew that they weren't supposed to go, & goofed off a lot. Not to mention he put the whole world in pearl because he didn't want to leave a temple & take on responsibilities as avatar. At least korra always embraced her duty & took her avatar job seriously, no matter what she faced & how everyone tried to hold her back. & she was only really bad in season 1 & in the beginning of season 2 where she was immature. But obviously she was never the only one all characters were immature at one point.
And speaking of people who are immature, so what about her bewbs? They never put any focus on them during her run. And that brat ...more
I just hate her. She's so immature. Aang handled being the Avatar way better than she ever did... And he was 12 and she's 17. Worst avatar ever. Just a poor ripoff Toph.
Does anybody get the fact that they didn't include Legend Of Korra on the title!
She doesn't deserve her own spin off show.V 14 Comments
Um.. What's the difference between Lo and Li?
They personally just annoy me
Ty Lee is actually one of the best characters. And she's the hottest
She is like undefeatable, Team Avatar never had real revenge against her.
Why is Ty lee on this list?!
Her fighting style is amazing and her betraying Azula was one of the most emotional scenes in the show!
All of you Ty Lee fans are liars.V 2 Comments
If Avatar: The Last Airbender had ended at the end of Book 2 / the beginning of Book 3, I can understand the Zuko hate. But since it was ended at the end of Book 3, then why could anyone hate him? Zuko's a complex character with a tragic past, he's always been so kind, even in Book 1. He always tries his best to earn respect from his father, wishing for Ozai's love and acceptance as a father, like how he's always treated his sister Azula. He's always had to live in the shadow of his prodigious sister, having been mistreated and misunderstoof by everyone but his uncle Iroh. When he finally gets what he's always wanted for so long, he's realised that it's against his nature and belief, realising that Iroh was truly his real 'father'. So he redeemed himself by joining Aang gang and helped them defeat his father, bringing peace to the world and became a great Fire Lord who ruled the kingdom with just. Not only is he a kind-hearted and complex character but he's also unintentionally funny, ...more - Goku02
Zuko's an outstanding character. As a child he was abused by his father while watching his sister receive praise for almost everything, he got a permanent scar from his father, and he was banished from the fire nation. He hunted down the avatar and appeared to be the main antagonist, but then he actually realized his mistakes and became a member of Team Avatar. Maybe he's a bit overrated, but he really is amazing. After all of the abuse Zuko went through, it's incredible that he found the right path.
The only reason people say he shouldn't be on this list is because he was abused... So just because his father abused him we have to like him? Every episode he's so angsty and the plot always revolves around him, and he whines and complains about it nonstop. I understand, it's sad, but people dealt with worse through the series. Aang had his entire family wiped out and he was the only one left of his family and knew not a single person. He never complained about it though, and he was so nice and optimistic. Zuko is an immensely boring character and an extreme complainer. Annoying. The list goes on.
You guys have lost it.Zuko should not be here he is totally dope apart from his anger management issuesV 17 Comments
How the heck is amon on here? He's awesome!
Uhhh, the title says The Last Airbender. Amon is from Legend Of Korra. - HudsonFlynn
You suck Amon. I can't believe Mai, Zuko, Azula, and Katara are higher than you! What's wrong with the world?
THIS MAN RADIATES BAD ASSERY. HE DID STUFF ONLY THE AVATAR COULD DO HOW DID YOU THINK HE COULD BE ON THIS LISTV 1 Comment
People who hate Mako can kiss my ass. Just because he's imperfect, it doesn't mean that he's bad. Sure, he did some things that I don't approve. But would you want him to be perfect?
He's my favorite character 'because he's serious and mature. I can't stand characters who are funny. Therefore, I can relate to serious ones better.
For someone obviously created to be the love interest, Mako is a very well developed character, with his own goals and ambitions. He actually even says that he needs to figure out who he is without a lady in his life. Still not as cool as Zuko, though...
I don't hate him. I just don't get how so many awesome characters rank higher on this list.
I hate how korra is above mako. Where the f did all these mako fans come from? He was petty cool in season 1 episodes 1- like 3, but then they completely ruined his character after that to be a moronic Gary Stu. Two strong girls loved him, as well as the girls in his fighting thing. Bolin is cute too, but no one cares as he has a 'better, hotter' brother. And did I tell you he even gets attention from the main villain for no reason in season 1? W t f not even zuko or soka was that special.
But let's talk about how the writers ruined him. We get that when anon kinapped his younger brother (like his only family he has), he was calm, collected, kept his cool, & was able to easily save bolin with the help of korra without out at all despite what was all happening. Then korra gets kidbapped by anon & he's useless, out at every second, & being dumb. What a slap in the face to not only his brother, but his girlfriend at the time.
Oh & how he handled the whole 'Korra vs asami' ...more
WHO PUT TOPH IN THE LIST! - djghostboy
Why is Toph here? She's one of the best (with Iroh and Zuko). Katara's the awful one.
Although her voice can be annoying, it suits her. I love her bratty sense of humor and that's her personality. She is extremely strong while being blind, and I feel like she has great character!
I know, right?V 17 Comments
So you people think she goes over the top with feminism? When Sokka was blatantly disrespecting her and her gender? Sexists in general should learn a lesson from Sokka and his character development.
Mary Sue without a personality and is just too perfect without a flaw in a bad way. She is just a blank slate who can fight. She annoyed me and a lot of other people too
She goes over the top with feminism. 'We don't let outsiders join, let alone boys. '
She is a Mary Sue. She didn't have any flaws.V 6 Comments
Aang barely received any character development. Just in the final episode which was too late. In the whole series he acted so immature. Take his feelings for Katara as an example. In Episode 17 season 3 when they went to watch the PLAY, he acted like a immature, jealous child and it was just a play. If Katara hadn't chosen him, he would have gone to rage (Avatar state). Or before his battle with Ozai, although the previous avatars told him not to be selfish and finish Ozai off, he didn't. He almost lost to Ozai when he was trying to destroy his firebending and he barely won. Aang risked the world's balance for his own morals...
Aang and Zuko are easily the best characters of both series. For those who find Aang was hypocritical of his actions, one of the main conflicts in his journey was that of Aang the Airbender versus Aang the Avatar. Aang the Airbender was a pacifist and would not harm anyone if there was no need. Aang the Avatar, however, needed to maintain balance in the world through whatever means necessary to do so. When he is in the Avatar state for times such as becoming Koizilla and destroying the fire nations' forces, he forgoes his needs and ideals in order to defeat them. Unlike Korra who abused her connection to the Avatar state, Aang ever only used it as a trump card, when he has no other options. There is no hypocrisy in this.
And if you're gonna say that he was immature, come on he's 12 years old, give him some slack. He actually matures a lot by the end of the series, when he finally understands and comes to terms with his role as the Avatar and faces the consequences of his ...more
Aang is simply a hypocrite. He says "All life is sacred." but you never hear about those poor people he killed in the sea by hypothermia. I can only imagine how HAUNTED the North Pole is by the death of thousands of Fire-benders who probably won't receive a burial, because their bodies kind of got wrecked by a SPIRIT.
If Spirits can haunt places at all, the Avatar just unleashed spirit warfare on the North Pole.
Aang would have been a lot stronger if he learned to counter Katara's "teachings" (pretending to be the painted lady when she's about to destroy the factory). I'm not saying he's my least favorite (I'm fine with him at times, except when he and katara got all lovey-dovey), he just could've been better. To be honest, I disliked katara the most (she's also my least favorite from the gAang) - warioladyV 5 Comments
I hate jet and that dumb twig in his mouth. he makes me really angry for no good reason
His character served no purpose no the plot. I mean he was okay in the 1st season but his return in 2nd season was unnecessary and meaningless. In the end,he was killed off and everyone forgot about him and he became a joke in Amber Island episode... - Tia-Harribel
Oh gawd he's so annoying
Why would anyone hate Iroh? He's too nice!
Who would hate Iroh?! He helped Zuko choose the right path and he is the wisest character on the show! What kind of tea hater voted for him?!?!
Who tf put IROH on this list?!
Duuude, why would you hate iroh? He's so nice. No no no no. Take him off the list. U have no idea how awesome He is. Duuude. your messed up if u THINK he should be on the list let alone actually PUTTING him on the list. U know wut? your probably jealous because he can make better tea than u. 😂V 1 Comment
Tenzin is the man!
Annoying and extremely immature for his age. Absolutely terrible character, although I did like how he learned lavabending
At last! I'm glad that he's on this list. It totally serves him right for being an asswipe to Zuko, whom I can relate to. Why, I hate him for the same reason I hate my dad: abused by parent. I'm glad that his own son got back at him, although I wish that he (Zuko) could do that more.
All the people who objected to Zuko's retaliating at his old man are lying goody-goodies. That son of his deserves to be his pop for all the crap that he gave him.
I also wish that Zuko got back at his sister for being a bully to her and his haters for dumpin' on him.
He's WORST CHAR TOGETHER WITH AZULA
"He's WORST CHAR TOGETHER WITH AZULA"
Right you are. Anyone who hates them is cool in my book just as those like those villains are my enemies.
By the way, I mistakenly put "be" between "to" and "his" in the second paragraph of my first anti-Ozai comment. I meant to put "kill" in place of "be" because I wish that's what Zuko did his ""dear ol' dad.
Sokka is frustrating. The writing of all the other characters made them feel like real people with real struggles. Sokka lacks dimension and is inconsistent. Towards this point I will ask you the following question: Is sokka smart or dumb? The fact that it's hard to answer this just means that the writing for him is inconsistent. He shows little to no growth or trajectory over the course of the show.
This guy is so funny what's he doing here?
Sokka is WAY Sexist he makes fun of women and he insults them to. Women honestly kicked his ass in the show and I'm glad they did!
I think Avatar is a perfect show and so it's hard for me to critique anything but sokka is a character that makes zero sense. He switches between absolutely incompetent and totally on top of things in a non predictable way. I know he's supposed to be our "every man" and be the relatable one but he seems like a thoughtless oaf who can't possibly be related to Katara. He does not add that much to team Avatar and hinders them often. His character does not have a growth ark. It is not like he learns lessons and improves. He's hot headed and when he gets his way it's by luck or kindness of others. It's frustrating. (Why would the Kiyoshi warriors have given him a chance. He never really apologized or acknowledged the error of his ways.) He's good for occasional comic relief but he's the weakest part of the show in my opinion.
He reminds me of bolin but bolin in is more likeable.
Not that much screen time, but I felt she really could have been a good character.
Asami haters, do me a favor and shut the hell up. I have good reason to like her. It's true that she isn't perfect by any means. But at least, she's the perfect girlfriend for Mako.
But there's no way that she's Korra's, especially since those gals aren't lesbians.
Korra's girlfriend. I really like her.
Still more bearable than Korra.
F**k off, Asami haters. The reason that she acted that way to Mako is because he acted like he was cheating on her. Even though she's not perfect, I still like her since she's more sensible and mature than Korra.V 1 Comment
She toys with Sokka's emotions too much
He didn't do anything but get captured, what a dumbass
This character has no point in the show except for a filler
AND HIS STUPID DUMD ASS MUSTASHE
Kinda annoying, but really is a nice character!
The worst character in ATLA universe history. I was going to chose Jet until I saw Ikki. Anyone who hates Ikki should vote for her until she gets into the top ten and better yet number one. - Anonymousxcxc
Yakone is the name of Kallik's "friend" in Seekers. Random facts.

Love her! She's like Toph's twin which just makes this entire series better!
She's Toph's daughter. Only until the fourth season they had mother-daughter issues actually. - Anonymousxcxc
It was like she was PMSing 24/7...annoying.
