Avatar: The Last Airbender has always been known for its incredible storylines, battle scenes, and characters. Even years after the show first premiered, fans new and old can't get enough of seeing Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph, and the rest of the gang as they try to save the world in the middle of a big war against the Fire Nation. Even though these kids basically have the fate of the whole world on their shoulders, you might be surprised to know just how young they actually are.

Here's everything you need to know about the ages of the characters of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Age: 12/112

Ages can get a little tricky when you accidentally get frozen in an iceberg for over 100 years. Aang was only 12 when they disappeared and he wasn't set free until 100 years later, technically making him 112 at the start of the series.
