Zhao has mixed popularity in the Avatar fandom. He is regarded as being one of the best villains but is also hated for killing the moon spirit and causing Yue's death. A lot fans wished that they could have seen more of him beyond Book One. When he made a cameo in the Legend of Korra, many fans were excited and loved seeing him again. When it comes to shipping, Zhao is most often shipped with Ozai due to his loyalty to him and the fact that they are both evil. Zhao's sideburns are sometimes made into a meme.


  • Zhao was thought to have been killed when he was dragged into the ocean until it was revealed that he was actually taken to the Spirit World and thrown into the Fog of Lost Souls.
