Cover for the series, which is a screenshot of Avatar: The Last Airbender. The torn image of Aang is used to represent his continuous struggles and moral dilemmas, while the stone pillars parallel the sins of man, an ongoing theme in Better World.

Chapters of the fan fiction series Avatar: Better World are divided into sets of "Chronicles" which feature serial story arcs. The series, created by SuperFlash101, is published on the Avatar Wiki. Formally, it was released on the Avatar Fanon Wiki, though ceased after the website merged with Avatar Wiki, along with, where low amounts of reviews and viewership caused SuperFlash to stop updating the series for the website.

Better World follows the lives of Team Avatar after the end of The War. The beginning of the series sees Avatar Aang being pursued by a seedy assassin organization run in secret by Fire Lord Ozai. Aang is attacked by multiple assassins over the course of a month before finally facing the overseer of the assassination, Yino. Their battle stretches across the lower ring of Ba Sing Se before Yino is finally killed by Sokka. Aang faces issues with his own morality following the assassinations and is furious when the dead corpse of a member of the Ba Sing Se Construction Committee washes ashore. Mysterious murders follow the first and Aang is forced to investigate while dealing with difficult political meetings.

Each chronicle follows different themes and recurring elements. For the first, "New World," the plot of series was introduced and employed the general idea that the world could never be peaceful even following the defeat of Ozai. Aang's moral decisions become looser and looser as his world falls into chaos. The titles of the chronicle were simplistic and followed the emotion of the characters that were featured. For "New Politics," the central theme employed is the idea of innocence and that no man is without sin. Biblical parallels are heavily utilized in both story elements and titles, as well as through narrative chronology.
