Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender season 1 ended with eight episodes, and the story will continue till the next two confirmed seasons. While fans and viewers await the next chapter, let’s delve into the series to learn who’s the best healer in Avatar: The Last Airbender.


The live-action of Avatar: The Last Airbender has ignited the hardcore fans to once again go back to the original series, and commend the exceptionally crafted show. From the classical elements to the bending techniques, the 2005 show excelled at every aspect fans could ever desire from an animated series.

Despite the presence of numerous healers in the fictional world, there only exists one supreme healer, and if you’re thinking about Avatar Korra, Sifu Atuat, or even Avatar Kyoshi, then you’re off base. Because the greatest healer in Avatar: The Last Airbender is none other than Katara!

Katara is The Best Healer in Avatar: The Last Airbender

In the latest live-action of Avatar: The Last Airbender on Netflix, we saw Katara’s potential to become the greatest healer, as she astonished the Northern Water Tribe with her self-training. The original animated series which premiered on Nickelodeon gradually depicted the significance of Katara’s water-bending skills.

In the initial episodes, Katara majorly focuses on offense and defense, as she has to offer great support to Aang, but later her compassion and desire to help as many people as she can, the young waterbender masters her healing abilities. Many might think Avatar Kyoshi or Avatar Korra must be the finest healers due to unimaginable challenges and fights, but unfortunately, they couldn’t master as much as Katara.

Katara started healing with water, way before she mastered the ability. Some of the best examples of it include the time when Aang was under Jeong Jeong’s firebending training, and Katara used water to cool him down. She continued to provide help and support to the Gaang through their journey, which was just the beginning of mastering the superior talent in Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Unlike other healers, Katara emerged as the most creative by using her ability to gain different results. While healing was majorly done to cure injuries, Katara used her power to restore Jet’s memories after he was brainwashed by Dai Li. Katara and Jet initially had feelings for each other but after the waterbender learned his way of justice, Katara parted ways with Jet.

Despite that, she helped Jet erase the false memories from his mind and brought back his original thoughts. Katara even saved Aang from dying of ruthless Azula’s lightning strike, when the Avatar almost died. Following Katara’s unparalleled determination and mastery, the world labeled her as the World’s Greatest Healer. Katara passed on her skills and power to heal to her daughter Kya, who perfectly mirrored her mother’s skills.
