Avatar: The Last Airbender: 10 Crazy Techniques Aang Has That Are Kept Hidden

Avatar: The Last Airbender introduced us to Aang, the titular Avatar, a boy gifted with the ability to bend all four elements. He rose from a 100-year slumber inside an iceberg and freed the world from the clutches of the tyranny of the Fire Nation and its villainous ruler, Ozai. In less than a year, he accomplished more than most Avatars did in their entire lives. Aang, as the series makes clear at every possible moment, is very powerful and is able to master numerous techniques.

But what about the less obvious abilities, the ones not made clear from the onset or not addressed altogether by the show? Thanks to the comics and The Legend of Korra, the abilities of the Avatar have become clearer, not to mention the little moments where the show peeled back the curtain and revealed pieces of Aang’s mostly untapped arsenal.

Avatar: 10 Things Every Fan Should Know About Fire Bending

The world of Avatar: the Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra has its own magic system known as "bending," and this Asian-inspired setting features the four Greek elements: fire, water, earth, and wind.
