considering eragon ripped off star wars big time, you could apply that too

I'm almost tempted to watch Eragon again just to test that claim

You could just have said "Read the Hero's Journey" and saved yourself all the work and pretending that you've discovered something.

Toph, Katara, and Zuko filled the role of mentor a lot more than Roku. Although Roku did guide Aang towards more of his stronger dormant power he didn't really prove to teach him much in comparisons to his actual teachers. Also Gyatso had no relations to Aang but he was a bad ass guardian and was practically a father to him.

Hey, that's the hero's journey. It's actually a formula, and almost all of the examples you show follow it to a T.

This is textbook story making, it's not a coincidence that avatar has the same mechanics as something such as harry potter.

All the comments are pointing out flaws in the post, and i'm just here, ashamed that none of you are commenting on the animated epic that was avatar.

Actually, this is a theory called the "monomyth" or "hero's journey", developed by joseph campbell. most myths featuring heroes use it, so it only makes sense that stories follow it too.

except this rythmic is getting too used up and unoriginal. Its almost the same plot in a different story.

This is the most forced attempt at making something fit in that I've seen in a long time.
