The Southern Air Temple - S1-E3

Other mistake: When the gang is in the Hall of Statues of Past Avatars, Katara points out the avatar cycle pattern of statues and Aang zeroes in on Roku's statue. The earthbender avatar statue next to Roku is of an unknown man with a sword, not Kiyoshi. (00:12:50 - 00:13:35)

The Southern Raiders - S3-E16

Other mistake: When Azula attacks The Western Air Temple, there is a close up shot of her when she says that she is about to become an only child. Pay attention to the smoke coming from the airship behind her, especially above her head: it doesn't move. Even if this was remotely possible, it does move when the camera zooms out, making it a mistake nonetheless.

Show generally

Other mistake: The Air People were wiped out by the Fire Nation through Suzon's Comet enhancing them, we even have confirmation of this by the dishevelled exposed skeleton of a VIP of them (presumably any Air Nomad who escaped would have given Monk Giatsu honorable burial), but we never see scorch marks on the Air Nomad buildings or the aforementioned skeleton.

The Library - S2-E10

Trivia: Wan Shi Tong is of one the few things in this show that is not a reference to Asian cultures, but to Ancient Greece instead. In their mythology owls were the symbol of wisdom and their goddess of wisdom, Athena, was often depicted with an owl.
