Aang Sees Past Avatars refers to an object labeling meme featuring a still from Avatar: The Last Airbender. The still shows the protagonist Aang seeing a vision of all his past incarnations or Avatars lined up, with Avatar Roku standing closest and turning to face him as his eyes glow. The meme is used to joke about being involved in long and often trivial traditions. The meme format first emerged in 2015.
In season 2 episode 1 of the Nickelodeon TV show Avatar: The Last Airbender, the protagonist Aang has a vision where he sees and speaks to all the past versions of himself.
