According to TV Line, the platform’s version of the character is described as the “ruthlessly-driven leader of the Fire Nation who demands everyone live up to his impossible standards, especially his teen son, Prince Zuko”. Ozai’s desire to conquer and unify the globe under Firebender’s authority stems from his belief that it is his destiny to finish a battle begun by his forefathers. Mark Hamill provided the character’s voice in the animated series.
