Avatar: The Last Airbender, a series so popular, it's no surprise that it has a huge number of memes that fans will be familiar with.

The Series

The Movie

  • The Racebending community was created in protest of casting decisions made by M. Night Shyamalan for The Last Airbender. Named after the hiring of Caucasians playing Aang, Sokka and Katara as well as brown people as the Fire Nation. Thus, phrases like "Aang ain't white" and "Aang Can Stay Asian And Still Save the World" became popular among some Avatar fans.
  • Before the movie had even come out, early test screening reviews mentioned a scene that has turned the phrase "punching the fish" into a meme[30].
    • Speaking of Movie!Zhao, did you hear that he found a secret library? He got a scroll that his men are trying to decipher, did he mention that it was a SECRET LIBRARY?[31]
  • PEBBLE DANCE! [32]

 Bill: Let us never speak of what just happened again.

  • Kat-tackle! [33]
    • "Are you an airbender, boy?" [34]
  • AANG! JUST ONCE! [35]
  • X! Why are you acting this way? There's Y right beneath your feet! The Z is the extension of who you are! [36]
  • X scene was cut from the movie because it was too "distracting".
  • The amazing line Yue says in the movie, "We need to show them that we believe in our beliefs as much as they believe in their beliefs." is very popular in capslock_atla. What is this, Gurren Lagann?
    • Speaking of which, there's a spiritual place. The city was built around this place.
    • Her penis hair. Dear god, her penis hair...
  • Movie!Ozai's glowing ass, as shown in the picture above.
  • At least the effects were decent. [37]
  • That boy's an earthbender, he was bending tiny stones at us from behind a tree. It really hurt! [38]
  • ....Yes.
  • I am pleased. [40]
  • Watch out for the Fire Nation and their machines.
  • My brother and (insert girl's name here) became friends right away.
  • To get airbending tattoos, you have to meditate...for long periods of time, without losing focus. Some of the great monks...can meditate...for four days. [42]


  1. In the episode "The Desert", Sokka drinks some cactus juice and has a Mushroom Samba.
  2. Later in that episode he sees a mushroom shaped cloud and says this.
  3. In the wake of defeating SpongeBob SquarePants at the 2008 Kids' Choice Awards, the pervasive meme was this quote from Azula, after she beats some people at volleyball.
  4. Referring to a truly epic instance of Getting Crap Past the Radar when Zuko accidentally interrupts Sokka and Suki's attempts to have sex. Later on, when they go to the theater, he sits between Aang and Katara just as Aang was trying to sidle up "smoothly" to her.
  5. More Getting Crap Past the Radar, this time involving a colossal drill and The Impenetrable City.
  6. Sokka mentions the group's incredibly bad luck immediately before a giant water serpent attacks some pursuing enemies, allowing them to escape and prompting this line.
  7. Though not even close to what was actually said, the situation in the episode "The Southern Raiders" was so similar to The Princess Bride that this meme was formed.
  8. Play!Zuko After getting Killed by Play!Azula.
  9. The writers hanging a lampshade on the fact that Executive Meddling had forced them to leave Real!Jet's fate unclear.
  10. Play!Aang's Catch Phrase.
  11. Play!Katara is a big crybaby.
  12. Play!Iroh during the play's version of Zuko's Heel Face Revolving Door moment.
  13. A universal response to M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender. Adaptation Decay squared, but it had Visual Effects of Awesome. And Iroh's awesomeness ALWAYS triumphs.
  14. Toph's Disability Superpower allows her to sense heartbeats and therefore when someone is lying.
  15. An enormous piece of Fridge Logic that concludes Toph knows everything that anyone is doing in close proximity to her.
  16. Toph's name for Aang, used throughout her conversations with him.
  17. The name Sokka uses when he disguises himself with a beard, while in the Fire Nation
  18. The name Toph creates for a training dummy, briefly treating it as a real person.
  19. Sokka's failed attempt to be dramatic.
  20. A bard in "Cave of Two Lovers" begins ad-libbing this song rather loudly the moment he hears about the tunnel.
  21. Mai, after she and Ty Lee defeat Sokka and Katara.
  22. A Running Gag where some cabbage merchant gets his mechandise destroyed in some form.
  23. Iroh's affection for tea is legendary. The creators even admitted (jokingly?) that IrohXTea was canon.
  24. An unintentionally creepy screenshot of Katara in ‘The Day of Black Sun, Part 1: The Invasion’.
  25. After hearing legends of Airbenders still at the Northern Air Temple, Aang explains that he also laughs at gravity.
  26. Sokka, completely deadpan, sums up how the call kills one's dating life.
  27. Zuko is a master of empathy.
  28. A character who's only defined trait was to collapse into a frothing seizure upon mention of the Avatar
  29. "The Boulder feels conflicted".
  30. He actually stabs it with a knife.
  31. The wonderful Rufftoon of Deviant ART, who worked as a storyboard artist on the animated version, pointed out that Zhao mentioned the library (That's supposed to be a secret) several times, as compared to the one time it was vaguely mentioned in the series. The meme was created after she posted a series of humorous guides and overviews of the movie. The one containing this meme is here:
  32. The most notorious example of Flynning Six earthbenders. Four seconds of kata. One rock, slightly larger than a human head.
  33. Katara pushing over a random guard and then just standing there.
  34. What the random guard said that causes this.
  35. How the many changes in the movie affects the audience.
  36. A speech to some prisoners, made incredibly bizarre because of the large deviation from the equivalent moment in the series.
  37. Originated from the Ember Island Players, the effects are in fact one of the few saving graces of the movie.
  38. Proof that the movie Fire Nation are pretty weak.
  39. A battle cry done horribly.
  40. Good news pleases the Fire Lord.
  41. Zuko wants your elderly.
  42. Stoicness. Dramatic emphasis. Unnecessary information sharing. All rolled...into one.
