Sokka Quotes That Prove He Is The Funniest Character
15 “Oh Great And Powerful Sea Serpent, Please Accept This Tasty Offering.”
When Aang leads Team Avatar and a group of refugees through the Serpent’s Pass to get to Ba Sing Se, they are attacked by a giant sea serpent…because that is what happens in a place called Serpent’s Pass.
The sea monster looms above the group, apparently about to eat them. Brandishing Momo, Sokka tries to appease the giant water snake. After all, Sokka understands the delight of some fresh meat.*
14 “Hey! We’re In Enemy Territory. Those Are Enemy Birds.”
As the group infiltrates the Fire Nation in Season 3, they are careful not to reveal their identities to anyone around them. If anything they say is overheard, it could betray Aang’s identity as the Avatar and put them all at risk (especially since their greatest tactical advantage is that the Fire Nation does not know Aang is alive).
That said, Sokka might have possibly taken this caution a bit too far when cautioning his friends not to speak in front of the birds.
13 “What’s Going On? Did We Get Captured Again?”
Sokka says this as he is woken from slumber. Seriously. Just think about that. He wakes with a start in the night and his first response is to curiously wonder through his yawning whether he has been kidnapped…again!
This unconcerned response speaks volumes about the sort of life he and the rest of Team Avatar have lived.
12 “All Right, Team Avatar Is Back! Air. Water. Earth. Fire. Fan And Sword.”
This is a great little bit of dialogue for two reasons. First, Sokka invokes the old Captain Planet cartoon from the 80s (one of several cultural references peppered throughout the series).
But the other reason is that he and Suki are standing alongside four Benders. Sokka has a pointy iron blade and Suki has a war fan, but these two are expected to keep up with elemental sorcerers. It is patently ridiculous, and yet they still pull it off.
11 “Bye, Space Sword.”
After acquiring a new sword forged from the ore of a fallen meteor, Sokka proves himself quite a capable warrior. In fact, his arc throughout the series is one of rising from a buffoonish meat-loving loud-mouth into a competent military commander.
In the final battle with the Fire Nation, he scales one of their flying ships, but while clinging to the outside of the vessel, drops his sword. It plummets through the sky, falling to the Earth below.
10“Aang, This Is My Friend, Foofoocuddlypoops.”
While at first Sokka is determined to hunt and kill the baby saber-toothed moose lion for food, things don’t go according to plan when he gets stuck in the earth.
However, in typical Sokka fashion, while at first he is somewhat abrasive and acts like he doesn’t care, he grows to get a little bit attached to the baby animal giving it this hilarious and memorable name.
9 “I’d Like To Spend My Vacation… At The Library!”
During season two of the series, the Gaang decides they are all going to take mini-vacations to visit interesting places around the Earth Kingdom.
So, when Sokka decides he wants to go to Wan Shi Tong’s library, he doesn’t just say it calmly. He says so very exuberantly, and this is a short line that has been quoted by fans many times.
8 “Just Some Angry Freak With A Ponytail Who’s Tracked Us All Over The World.”
This hilarious line is something that Sokka says when asked about who Zuko is. While eventually Zuko does get a redemption arc and joins up with the team, for a long time he is one of their main enemies.
So, when Sokka says this succinct but accurate description of Zuko, it’s pretty funny.
7 “You Know What I Love About Appa The Most? His Sense Of Humor.”
Sokka is someone who spends a lot of the first couple of seasons trying his best to seem tough and not too attached to anything. It’s great to see his journey as he becomes more confident in himself and more open and in touch with his emotional sides.
However, it is always entertaining when he doesn’t quite get along with Appa and Momo. While he especially has it out for Momo at times, he also teases Appa quite frequently, and this good-natured joke is rather endearing.
6 “It’s A Giant Mushroom! Maybe It’s Friendly!
Probably one of the most memorable episodes when it comes to Sokka is the one where the Gaang is lost in the desert after App has been kidnapped by sand benders.
He accidentally gets high on cactus juice, and he spends the rest of the episode saying some pretty hilarious things. His overreaction to the giant cloud of sound is one of his most quoted lines.
5 “Sparky Sparky Boom Man.”
Sokka is always trying to be funny and joke around, but most of the actual jokes he makes aren’t that great. He often tries too hard, and his jokes make people groan more than laugh.
However, fans find this trait adorable, and some of his bad jokes actually make for great quotable lines. This name he gives to the Combustion Man might be ridiculous, but it is funny.
4 “If I Can Just Get Out Of This Situation Alive, I Will Give Up Meat… And Sarcasm. Okay? That’s All I Got.”
This quote is said in the same episode as the Foofoocuddlypoops line. When Sokka is trapped in the earth, he makes some pretty hilarious promises that he definitely never had any intention of keeping.
He says that he will give up his two greatest loves in life, meat, and sarcasm if he manages to survive. What’s even funnier, however, is that he changes his mind immediately after Aang rescues him.
3“Boomerang! You Do Always Come Back!”
While meat-eating and sarcasm might be two of Sokka’s favorite things, his third favorite he’s probably his trusted boomerang.
This weapon comes in handy many times and saves Sokka’s life often. As someone who isn’t a bender, he gets really attached to his weapons as he relies on them. So, his love for boomerang is both comedic and also kind of cute.
2 “My First Girlfriend Turned Into The Moon.”
This line that Sokka says to Zuko while they are on their way to the Boiling Rock might be one of the most, if not the most, well-known lines from the entire Avatar: The Last Airbender series.
The way Sokka says this is both matter of fact and a little sad, and the comedic timing is just perfect.
1 “Drink Cactus Juice! It’ll Quench Ya! Nothing’s Quenchier, It’s The Quenchiest!”
While Sokka says and does a lot of funny things over the course of the show, this quote might be one of the best. After drinking the cactus juice, which clearly has some hallucinogenic effects, Sokka starts acting both weirder and funnier than usual.
