Azula and Ty Lee were childhood friends. They always enjoyed being around each other, even though Azula picked on her occasionally. She was jealous of Ty Lee's acrobatic skills.

Because of this, Azula stayed for her performance and purposely made it more dangerous for her in order to coerce her into joining her. It worked and Ty Lee decided to join Azula.

Ty Lee immediately started to cry so Azula apologized to her and admitted that she was jealous. Ty Lee then gave Azula advice with flirting. Later, the group was at the beach together and Azula laughed when Zuko made fun of Ty Lee and called her a circus freak. After Zuko left the Fire Nation, Mai turned on her in order to help him escape from the Boiling Rock. Azula was about to attack her until Ty Lee chi blocked her. Azula was very hurt by Ty Lee's betrayal. Over a year later, Ty Lee was seen to still be afraid of her.
