For enthusiasts of Harry Potter and Avatar: The Last Airbender, it’s not hard to see that there are numerous likenesses between these two mainstream arrangement. While there are additionally some key contrasts, they are both rambling, epic tales about a trio of young people sparing the world from a scalawag.
Thus, it’s a pleasant exercise to envision how the characters from The Last Airbender would work on the off chance that they were shipped to the wizarding scene. This is the reason we’ve assembled a rundown of the Harry Potter professions that Airbender characters would exceed expectations at.
10 Princess Yue: Astronomer
Princess Yue might be a supporting character that only shows up in a few episodes, but she is memorable because she sacrificed herself to become the moon and save the world.
While this is a rather sad but important ending for her, in the wizarding world, she would likely use her connection to the moon to become a renowned astronomer with a special connection to the sky.
9 Suki: Curse Breaker
Suki is a rather underrated character who often gets left out as a member of Team Avatar. However, when she is on screen, she proves how talented of a warrior she is.
Because of her passionate personality and skills, she would do great in a demanding and interesting career such as Curse Breaker. She could help others and also be adventurous while doing so.
8 Ty Lee: Head Of Muggle Relations
Ty Lee might start out as a villain, but she really just seems to want to have friends. So, when she breaks off from Azula, she becomes friends with the Kyoshi warriors. She’s also not a bender which could translate to being a Muggle-born in Harry Potter.
Because of her charisma and her willingness to make friends with all kinds of people, she would be great for working directly with people and helping others understand Muggles.
7Azula: Director Of Azkaban
Azula would most likely be a Death Eater if she was in the wizarding world, but since that isn’t exactly a career, she would likely either be in charge of Azkaban or the head of the Muggle-Born Registration Commission.
She is rather soulless and cruel, so she would want any position where she could be powerful and in control of others. However, she’d also likely aspire to be Minister of Magic.
6 Zuko: Auror
While Zuko might start out as a villain whose only goal is to find and kill Aang, he becomes an ally to Team Avatar and spends the rest of his life on the side of good.
He would make a great Auror because he would understand how the minds of villains and criminals work given that he used to be one himself. He would also likely feel that it was his responsibility to keep others from harm.
5 Iroh: Leaky Cauldron Owner
There are two careers that Iroh would excel at in the wizarding world. The first is that of Hogwarts professor as he has a kind disposition and likes to help and teach young people.
However, given that his end goal at the end of The Last Airbender was owning his own teashop, it makes more sense that he chose to run the Leaky Cauldron. There he could help and offer advice to many people.
4 Toph: Dueller
Toph is a character who could do well in almost any career that involves using physical strength or toughness, but it’s hard to imagine her wanting to work in Magical Law Enforcement as she’s not really a person who loves authority.
So, instead, it makes more sense that she would do something kind of out there and intense like being a professional dueller as this is the equivalent of what she was doing when the Gaang first met her.
3 Sokka: Member Of The Wizengamot/ Director Of Magical Security
There are a couple of careers that would make a lot of sense for Sokka.
For one thing, given that he serves as a representative on the United Republic Council in his later life, it would make sense for him to also serve on some sort of wizarding world council such as the Wizengamot. But, given his love of protecting others and strategy, being Head of Magical Security would also suit him.
2 Katara: Healer/Professor
Going off of the canon of The Last Airbender, Katara would likely be both a healer and professor in the wizarding world in turns. She takes up both of these roles in later life as she trains Avatar Korra in waterbending and also is a healer.
So, it’s easy to imagine her teaching at Hogwarts and/or working at St. Mungo’s at different points in her life.
1 Aang: Hogwarts Professor
Similarly to Katara, Aang would also make a great Hogwarts professor.
Most of his later life is spent teaching his own son, Tenzin, about airbending. But, if there had been other airbenders around at the time other than Tenzin he definitely would have taught them, too. This is a role he would excel in as he overall has a gentle soul and likes to help others.
