Aang was a male Air Nomad and the Avatar during the century-long conflict known as the Hundred Year War. His immediate predecessor was Avatar Roku, and his immediate successor is Avatar Korra. As the Avatar of his time, he was the only person capable of using all four bending arts: airbending, waterbending, earthbending, and firebending. He was also one of a select few Avatars, and one of the first in many cycles to learn the ancient art of energybending, and the first Avatar known to have actively used the technique. Shortly before the beginning of the Hundred Year War, Aang was frozen in an iceberg for a hundred years; he later emerged, still biologically twelve years old, into a world engulfed by war.

- Water Whip: Aang can create water whips by water bending, and secluding his arms in water.
- Seismic Sense: After being taught this by Toph, Aang is able to sense all movement on the ground allowing for a radar of sorts.
- Earth Armor: This technique allows Aang to coat his entire body (excluding his eyes) in a layer of earthly armor, and can even do it with crystal.
- Avatar State: Aang taps into the cycle of reincarnation, and gains the accumulated knowledge, skill and experience of countless previous lifetimes in addition to a dramatic increase in skill and knowledge it dramatically augments the power of his bending, allowing him to perform feats of power that would require multiple master level bender to replicate. However if he's killed in this state, the cycle of reincarnation is permanently broken.
- Air Shield: In his Avatar state, he can conjure an omnidirectional sphere of condensed air. This air shield protects him from melee attacks as well as elemental attacks. It also levitates Aang and allows him to fly at high speeds.
