After many years of his tribe being picked apart by the Fire Nation to deplete them of Waterbenders, the last straw came when they came to claim his daughter. His beloved wife pretended to be the one they sought, which ended up getting her killed, and he had to fight to protect what remained of his family. He took all of the able-bodied men from his village, and they departed to fight in the war.

After joining the Avatar on his quest, his children would eventually meet with him again in the Earth Kingdom, though the fall of Ba Sing Se occurred shortly after, forcing them to attempt to overthrow the Fire Lord without military assistance. Hakoda trusted in Sokka's careful planning and even had him give the motivational speech, but stepped in when his son lacked the confidence to complete it. But during the battle that followed, Hakoda was wounded and Sokka was forced to take command of the mission, making his father proud. When the attack proved to be a failure, Hakoda made yet another sacrifice when he instructed his children to take the Avatar and the remaining youths to seek refuge while he and his men surrendered to the Fire Nation.

Imprisoned at the Boiling Rock thereafter, Sokka set up a successful plan to rescue him. This time, his children made sure he and their friends got to safety while they took the fight to the Fire Nation. Following Ozai's defeat, Hakoda couldn't be prouder of Katara and Sokka's accomplishments.
