* ToBeAMaster: {{Deconstructed}} HARD with Ryu in the later parts of the story. The fic points out just how pointless and unhealthy this mindset is. His WalkingTheEarth tendencies make him absent from some of the bigger conflicts (Seth, for example) solely because nobody can contact him. His constant training makes him have NoSocialSkills to the point that he can come off as stupid, as seen when [[spoiler: he tries to get Naruto to leave Sakura to prevent Dark Sakura from coming out]]. Even then, he doesn't even know HOW to become the strongest, because there will always be people to fight. [[spoiler: This culminates in him officially becoming evil during the fight with Akuma, losing himself to the desire to win.]]

* RedemptionPromotion: Dan's Gadoken is flashy, but poofs out of existence after travelling only a few inches. Seems like a joke, but it can actually cause quite a bit of damage if the target is in very close proximity to the user, [[spoiler:something Sakura figures out and exploits.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HiddenDepths: For all his bumbling and arrogance, Dan Hibiki can be really good with words when he wants to be. Case in point: when Ryu comes to complain about [[spoiler:Naruto's refusal to break off his relations with Sakura (because he thinks doing so would prevent her from being corrupted by the Satsui no Hadou)]], Dan patiently listens, then proceeds to [[WhatTheHellHero tear Ryu a verbal new one]] for his insensitivity and lack of social skills.

* EnragedByIdiocy: Urien flips his lid when he learns of what Naruto did to [[spoiler:his invitation to the Third World Warrior Tournament.]]



* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:Akuma survives his cataclysmic battle with Naruto and Ryu - and becomes Oni.]]



** Urien has this view of others, as well.

** Akuma, in a way. He seems to be more in control, but he is so confident in the supposed potency of the Satsui no Hadou that [[spoiler:he immediately assumes that Evil Ryu's Hadoken killed Naruto without bothering to check first. As a result, he focuses entirely on Ryu, thus allowing Naruto - who ''absorbed'' the energy - to attack him from behind and damage him enough for Evil Ryu to land a killing strike, crushing Akuma's head to a pulp.]]

** [[spoiler: Later, during the final battle with Akuma, Naruto uses a redirection move he taught himself to launch Evil Ryu's Hadoken at Akuma, badly wounding him. Enraged, Evil Ryu rushes Akuma and smashes his head to a pulp with Messatsu Goshoryu.]]

* TrainingFromHell: Happens at various points during the fic, mostly before the tournament arcs. In particular, Batsu going through utter agony to get the ability to perform [[SuperMode Burning Vigor]] and Naruto's one-month long training session to learn [[HoistByHisOwnPetard energy redirection]] [[spoiler: for his final showdown with Akuma]].

* SmugSnake: Every major villain in the story falls into this trope. Even the more BadAss villains - such as Bison and Akuma - are ''way'' too arrogant for their own good, and it always comes back to bite them in the ass. ''Always''.

* BurnerPhones: Naruto uses disposable phones with pre-paid minutes for his mercenary business.



* CharacterDevelopment: All of the main teenagers in the series get some kind of development and change as people over the course of the story. The same goes for some of the main StreetFighter players that are used prominently.



* TheDarkSide: Also the Satsui no Hadou

* TheDarkSide: Also the Satsui no HadouHadou.
* DarkActionGirl: Juri Han and Poison.



* ElaborateUndergroundBase: The American headquarters/laboratory of S.I.N. in Las Vegas.
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler: During their first meeting since being separated in the StreetFighter world, Naruto and Sasuke are about to come to blows to finish their Valley of the End fight. [[OhCrap Then Akuma shows up.]]]]



* [[HowCanSantaDeliverAllThoseToys How Can Santa Delvier All Those Toys]] / [[TheKrampus The Krampus]]: It is revealed that upon first arriving in Aohura City and experiencing his first Christmas season, Naruto had an unhealthy, paranoid fear of Santa Claus and his many perceived powers. Considering where he comes from [[WorldOfBadass can you blame him?]]

* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Naruto and Sakura are big fans of [[BruceLeeClone Fei Long]]. Naruto's first reaction seeing him in the Second World Warrior Tournament is to call Sakura. Then he uncharacteristically gapes at awe (and takes his picture on his phone) realizing that they'd be fighting each other in the first round.

* LoveMakesYouCrazy: [[spoiler: Given the nature of the focus for Sakura's Satsui no Hadou, this counts.]]



** Sasuke and Akira later become much more open with each other ([[TheStoic: and ONLY each other]]) with their feelings.

* MadeOfIron: [[Series/{{24}} Special Agent Jack Bauer]] has survived sleeping in gasoline and tin and having an entire house dropped on him. Might not seem that impressive considering this fic, but note that he's ''a cat''.

* BadassNormal: Karin isn't a ninja, or a superpowered clone of an all-powerful overlord, and she lacks the ability to use ki-based attacks such as Hadoken. Actually, she's just a regular female fighter for most intents and purposes. Still, she's able to easily keep up with the other more special female fighters with [[WeakButSkilled nothing but pure martial arts skill].

** After Bison's defeat, Naruto later faces Guile, trying to beat him out of a HeroicBSOD that's lasted for months at this point. Naruto wrecks even when he's purposefully using a stupid fighting style that intentionally leaves way too many openings.

* DeconstructorFleet: The story points how the many realistic problems of some of the tropes of the franchise. In particular, how hollow the concept of being strong and searching for strength is when you have nothing else to live for.

** Ryu in the last few arcs is hit the hardest by this. Because he was raised alone in a dojo, he's a SociallyAwkwardHero. His WalkingTheEarth tendencies leave him LockedOutOfTheLoop, being absent from several crises that could've used his help because he's off wandering and with no way to contact him. Finally, [[ToBeAMaster his will to be the strongest]] is pointed out to be hollow and flat out impossible, and he can never grasp that strength without purpose is meaningless.

** A more far-reaching one was Sagat, one that was entirely his own fault. After Ryu defeated him, he never bothered to rest and repair his body, and his obsession with beating him lead him to lose any actual drive to fight. [[spoiler: Culminates in him surrendering to Naruto after he realizes Ryu won't fight him in the second World Warrior Tournament, and having a DyingMomentOfAwesome against Bison]].

* ObliviousToLove: Naruto. Justified though since his time in Team 7 (mainly with [[NamesTheSame Sakura]]) has soured him of trying to get a girl's affection and the fact he has minor self-image issues (not helped by the xenophobia he experienced when he came to Japan).
