S1E12 we see Aang leave the air temple without saying goodbye. We also find out in S1E18 that Katara and Sokka's grandmother left the Northern Water Tribe (and her arranged fiance) without saying goodbye.

Even outside of the Ursa stuff, a major insecurity Katara struggles with is that her father left during wartime to take care of her older brother, essentially she had to take on the role of his parent. It was not out of any disregard for his children on his part, which they both acknowledge, but the emotional pain and resentment this caused is still made explicitly clear to the audience. They meet each other again in the 3rd season and attempt to work through their baggage together.

If anything there’s a bait and switch in which Zuko assumes Iroh’s gonna tell him to forgive his sister ,but his uncle actually agrees that he’s justified in trying to take her down

This also happens several times to several characters, but is especially a major plot point in season one, with the main character being stalked by two separate major antagonists.

In the backflashes to Zukos past it's shown that in his family are some very toxic vibes at work. (surprise?)

SPOILER: Zukos father Ozai is very dismissive and cold. It's implied that his grandfather (the old firelord) demands from Ozai to kill his (underaged) son. This is averted by plot points that lead to Zukos mother leaving her children.

both azula (who many see as a poor example of a psychotic break) who becomes the villain in the end after being groomed (?) by her father and neglected by her mother, but also zuko (who had been abused by his father) is originally a main antagonist.

The fire lord and other fire nation characters are manipulative and mentally/emotionally abusive both explicitly and in subtext. Throughout her entire time on screen Azula is almost always emotionally and mentally manipulating those around her. S2E14 (and other episodes that take place in Ba Sing Se) has explicit gaslighting/psychological manipulation and brainwashing, especially towards the end of the episode.

Alcohol doesn’t exist in the series, but a character drinks juice from a cactus when he doesn’t have any water, giving him a similar effect to being drunk. He’s fine in the end.

Appa is treated horribly by several characters throughout an entire episode. He is stolen, tied up, sold, beaten, starved, threatened with flames, attacked by other animals. It's a very sad episode, and is hard to watch, and it doesn't really end happily.

Appa is reunited with Aang a few episodes later.

Subverted? I think? I'm not so sure.
A persistent bully tries to lash out and even burn our main character in 3x2 but fails miserably because he's just a regular kid and our main character is so much more athletically capable than him so he just dodges him the entire time. The main character doesn't seem very shaken up by it at all and the bully ultimately gets out completely scot-free by the end so... Honestly Idk--

In Season 2 Episode 1, a character is forcibly buried alive. It's shown that she is scared and resisting. She is rescued and survives unhurt, but not before being completely buried. Additionally, in season 2 episode 10, there is an entire building that sinks beneath the sand with multiple characters trapped inside it. Most escape but two are left inside & implied buried forever.

Sort of. In season 1 episode 20 Aang visits Koh, the face stealer. A huge centipede bodied spirit with multiple stolen faces he switches between. Outside, Aang encounters a monkey without a face.
In season 3 episode 8, we see bloodbending in action which distorts/twists the bodies of unwilling victims. One of the most unsettling and intense scenes in the series.

It depends on what you see as mutilation. A third of a character's face is burned, including his eye, which is constantly squinted. It's not graphic, but could be triggering to some.

“The Beach” has some “spicy” moments meant to parody anime tropes. Mostly just swimsuits and there’s a scene where Zuko dramatically takes off a towel and birds fly by. Nothing super sexual, it’s just meant to parody anime tropes.

Loads of times. The main character is constantly being kidnapped, and most of the secondary characters have also been kidnapped at least once. It's "kid friendly" and they usually rescue themselves or are rescued by friends; but sometimes it's played more seriously.

Two notable instances.

In Season 1: Aang is captured and held in a military stronghold briefly. A villain threatens to keep him in imprisoned in perpetuity. He is rescued pretty quickly.

Zuko has a few breakdowns. The most major of which he goes on top of a mountain top during a lightning storm to “practice” lightning bending. He overcomes them.

SPOILER: Azula has a major breakdown at the end of the series where she becomes unstable, hallucinates her dead mother, and chops off part of her hair. She battles the heroes in this state and loses. She’s last shown crying in defeat.

Not dysphoria proper, but in the Ember Island Play episode, Aang's actor....is an actress, which is shown to piss Aang off, moreso when Toph makes a joke about it. ("At least I'm not a flying bald lady!")

There is a scene in season 2, episode 19 where a character is stuck in a very small space. Some stuff happens and then there are 2 characters stuck in that same space.

One character who is definately on the spectrum was severely abused by his dad. Some of the things that his dad disliked about him, such as his weak firebending (poor fine motor skills) and extreme empathy are parts of his autism.

Sort of. When Princess Yue was born, she was “basically asleep”, her eyes were closed and she wasn’t crying, and she was essentially stillborn and none of the healers could save her. They then brought her to a Spirit Oasis and the Moon Spirit brought her to life. She was stillborn at first, but is okay in the end.

In the episode The Serpent's Pass" (Book 2 Chpt 12), the female character Smellerbee is mistakenly identified as male, and takes offense to it. This leads many to believe she is MTF.

There are no black people in the show. It's all based on Asian cultures, so it's safe to assume everyone is based on various Asian races. There is one darker skinned man, but he's just fine.

No, but there is in world racism between the various nations, and the Air Nomads were almost entirely wiped out (except Aang) in a genocide by the Fire Nation.

Sokka trains with the Kyoshi warriors, a group of warriors who are all women, who make wearing their uniform a requirement for training. The leader convinces him that he should be proud to wear it, but he is then immediately teased for wearing it by a different character waking by.

In this version, not the netflix live action, Oma and Shu are a heterosexual couple. Only in the remake are they both female.

Toph's parents restrict her freedom and treat her like she is helpless, because she is blind. The show makes it very clear that they are wrong.

Aang makes a joke about him not looking like he's 112 years old, since he's actually 12 but was stuck in an iceberg for 100 years. It is not implied that he is actually that old.

Spirituality is a major theme throughout the franchise, mainly focusing on fictional faith but it takes influence from real religions such as Buddhism. Especially considering how the main character is a monk

A teenage girl sneaks into a teenage boy's tent at night; he is waiting for her in a mildly suggestive pose. Sex is implied, but kids would probably miss it. A teenage couple cuddles on the couch; again, sex is implied in way that kids would probably miss. Multiple instances of kissing. Multiple instances of a character being clearly attracted to another character (getting flustered, blushing, staring, flirting.) Some cleavage shots & cheesecakey swimsuits.

In the beach episode there's a brief focus on Zuko's shirtless body. Ty Lee gets more attention from guys at the beach as she's viewed as the most attractive girl present. However, none of these scenes feel blatantly objectifying.

It is implied that Sokka and Suki had some fun together but there never is any confirmation and is easily missed by children.

Not in the show proper, but during a voice actor panel (near the end), Azula's voice actress makes a quick joke about it, much to the horror of Zuko's voice actor.

In a flashback showing how Zuko got his scar, Zuko is crying because he doesn’t want to fight his father, and Ozai calls him “weak” among other cruel terms. All other times where male characters cry (such as Aang) they’re comforted by their friends.

No cars in the show. A cabbage cart is smashed multiple times, meant to be humorous, and less funny, several airships are crashed in the four part finale. Also, there's at least one boat crash in episode 2.

Cars haven’t been invented yet, but ostrich horse drawn carriages have. There’s no honking or tire screeching, but ostrich horses will make sounds if that counts.

There is a very small amount of animated wounds shown throughout the show, but they are not graphic and aren't drawn in a bloody way, but rather with a pink-ish color. For reference, as someone who is bad with blood and gore myself, these didn't affect me at all.
One of the main characters, zuko, does have a burn scar on his face throughout the show.

In Season 1 Episode 6, which takes place on a ship, an antagonist is thrown overboard despite protesting that he can't swim. He is not rescued and it can be assumed that he drowned. The comment below by DouglasCarpenterFamily contains heavy spoilers for the season 1 finale, more than is necessary & I advise you skip it if you care about plot spoilers. The essential information is that another antagonist is likely drowned in the season 1 finale. Not graphic.
