Fire Nation emblem
Zuko tries to explain himself
Well, that's not its name ... but ...

The term "Sea lion" has not been confirmed by official sources.

The sea lion is an aquatic creature that is used in the Fire Nation as a mode of transportation over the seas. This large and powerful creature is used to pull boats that lack engines or sails.


A sea lion was used to transport the children of Fire Lord Ozai, Princess Azula and Prince Zuko, as well as their friends, Mai and Ty Lee, to Ember Island.[1]


The sea lion's skin is maroon-brown on its back and tan on its underside. It has small ears and small eyes, a large nose, and a somewhat plump snout, with short whiskers coming off the sides of its cheeks.


The real-world sea lion is a marine mammal. It is distinguished from the seal in that it has small ear flaps, whereas the seal does not.
