    • The Man With No Name
      The show makes yet another reference to western cinema within this chapter. On regular terms, Zuko would supply his false alias, Lee, whenever asked for his name. However, due to the fact that the boy he meets happens to have that name, he doesn't provide one at all, which the father understandably has no issues with, until he announces himself just after defeating the thugs at the very end. "The Man With No Name" is a stock character in western movies (personified by Clint Eastwood) which usually depict "him" as a hardened, skilled, self-reliant, outcast anti-hero. All characteristics which Zuko exhibits.
