* 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''.

* 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.

** 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.

* NoodleIncident: Dark Sakura proudly reveals to a surprised Juri that she lost her virginity to Naruto sometime ago after a training session went awry. This has never been brought up before, or even been implied. Perhaps she was lying.
** Dark Sakura was referring to having broken her hymen during a training session with Naruto. So technically she was telling the truth, but she was really just trolling Juri at the time.

** Dan constantly harkens to his canon 'victory' over Sagat and claims several characters as his equals or his students, but no real name character in the story takes him seriously in the slightest. he also advertises a photo of him landing a punch on Naruto during their fight - which happens to be the ''only'' good hit he landed on Naruto, and the only reason Naruto didn't decimate him almost immediately was because the spectators were getting too close to the ring, a problem that Karin rectified by bribing them into backing up, at which point Naruto wasted Dan with ease.
