New Animal Crossing 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' House Has All the Elements

One Avatar: The Last Airbender fan pays homage with an Animal Crossing: New Horizons house that contains locations and characters from the iconic show.

All four elements from Avatar: The Last Airbender are present and accounted for inside one Animal Crossing: New Horizons player’s custom house, which also brings characters and locations from Nickelodeon’s beloved series to life. Talented fans of Nintendo's highly successful island life simulator have been making brilliant tributes to games like Breath of the Wild, movies, and TV shows using Animal Crossing’s flexible customization tools and item sandbox ever since the latest installment arrived on the Nintendo Switch in 2020.

Among the various properties being frequently honored is Avatar: The Last Airbender. Players have recreated classic characters like Toph and Princess Azula, remade key locations such as the Water Tribe's Spirit Oasis, and have even reenacted the entire Last Airbender intro sequence within Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s colorful island world. These come alongside other great tributes to famous shows of the pas, including The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air and modern favorites like WandaVision.

Now, Reddit user sadladybug846 has posted images of their in-game Avatar: The Last Airbender-themed house on the r/AnimalCrossing subreddit. This house has different rooms devoted to the Four Elements, Air, Water, Earth, and Fire, as well as spot-on recreations of characters like Prince Zuko, Katara, Aang, and even the perpetually unlucky Cabbage Merchant. There are also impressive recreations of outdoor locations from the series, like the aforementioned Spirit Oasis and the Crystal Catacombs under the city of Ba Sing Se.

In the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender, certain individuals called Benders can manipulate the four elements for both combat and everyday life - with the titular Avatar being able to control all four. This simple premise served as the backbone of the show's mythology throughout its original three-season run on Nickelodeon in the mid-2000s, allowing it to spawn a sequel series in The Legend Of Korra and a not-quite-as-beloved live-action film in 2010. Currently, the franchise is set to return to the big screen in a new animated film under the watchful eye of original creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino, alongside a slew of new projects from their new production company, Avatar Studios. A live-action adaptation is also in development at Netflix, without the original creators' involvement.

Redditor sadladybug846’s in-game Animal Crossing: New Horizons house is a fun tribute to Avatar: The Last Airbender, capturing the colorful setting of the iconic Nickelodeon cartoon and the four elements at the heart of its mythos. The Avatar-based villagers are also a cute touch, especially as they reenact memorable moments from the show like Katara and Zuko’s discussion in the Catacombs from the end of Book Two. Overall, it’s just another great example of Animal Crossing fans using their creativity to pay tribute to the shows and characters that sparked said creativity, such as Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available on Nintendo Switch.
