Avatar is the incarnation or incarnated manifestation of a Hindu deity, a theory both characteristic of Vishnuism and marking a new epoch in the religious development of India.[1]

Recently, the term avatar has been used to signify "an interactive representation of a human in a virtual reality environment",[2] that is, an online persona used in computer gaming or internet communities.

Avatar: The Last Airbender is also the title of an animated television series which airs on Nickelodeon.

There's a hit movie out now called Avatar (2010), by James Cameron (of Titanic fame).[3]
