Avatar: The Last Airbender, while its anime status is debatable, shows a lot of strong Buddhist influences. The most prominent of these influences is reflected in the Air Nomads. They have a philosophy of detaching themselves from the world and obtaining inner peace and happiness. Furthermore, the trials that the main character, Aang, goes through to become the Avatar are similar to that of the Noble Eightfold Path in Buddhism.
