* "Naruto turns out to be secretly related to Sasuke/Hinata/Sarutobi/etc" were common prior to Naruto's heritage being given depth. The manga did eventually canonize Naruto being distantly related to [[spoiler:Tsunade]], [[spoiler:Karin]], and [[spoiler:Nagato]].

* Works where either Boruto and Sarada or Inojin and Sarada are ChildhoodFriends are commonplace. The anime itself shows that Boruto and Sarada were probably close when they were very young but ultimately grew apart by the time they were academy students.

* For fans who disliked the canonical pairings, many fanfics (usually Naruto/Sasuke or Naruto/Sakura) revolve around the preferred couple either having an affair or the canonical couple divorcing.
* ''Naruto'' fans have a fandom specific video plot: the "chatroom" video. Most popular circa 2007-2010, they're Youtube videos usually made in Windows Movie Maker where the plot revolves around the Konoha 12 talking to each other in chatrooms. Most are also Naruto/Hinata and Sasuke/Sakura themed.

* Characters having to go on seduction-related missions pops up in many fanfics. This is because real ninjas did do such things. How the character reacts and how this effects their relationship if they're already with someone depends on the writer.

* Fics where Hinata is in danger of getting the Curse Mark are everywhere, despite the fact either sister getting the mark isn't even implied in the series. Expect every Hyuuga but Neji to be evil and abusive to Hinata, including Hanabi who ironically adores Hinata in canon.

Expect every Hyuuga but Neji to be evil and abusive to Hinata, including Hanabi who ironically adores Hinata in canon. There's also the opposite idea: Hanabi fears she's in danger of getting the Curse Mark so she either keeps her distance from Hinata or acts like she hates her and tries to always best her.

* Nearly every story starts with Naruto being hated and attacked by the citizens of Konoha and the Third doing absolutely nothing about it or is too late.
** He is sometimes saved by a crossover character or an OC.
* Also there are many fics that deal with Naruto bringing back Sasuke only to be betrayed by Sakura and is later exiled/executed by the elders and the "civilian council".
** It usually ends up with Naruto gaining ComboPlatterPowers, becoming the leader of a village while Konoha gets destroyed economically and loses their allies as well. With war between Orochimaru, Kumo and Iwa.
* Twelve-plus young characters of the same age, with a variety of personalities? Let's put them in [[HighschoolAU high school]]!
** Let's add Camp or a rock band.
** And one or two are {{New Transfer Student}}s.

** Wouldn't the fact that all Uzumaki possess pretty much the same physical attributes count as a bloodline? Kushina flat-out says that the Uzumaki were famous for their massive chakra levels, almost endless stamina and inherent skills in fuinjutsu.



* Another very popular is [=NaruHina=] shippers making Naruto as dumb as possible and having constantly mocked by everyone for not noticing Hinata's feelings. Hinata, herself is usually portrayed as a stuttering like crazy for two seconds before fainting.
** This one got so popular that [[Manga/RockLeesSpringtimeOfYouth it's found its way into licensed Naruto-franchise material.]]
* Sasuke at times is usually portrayed as a SmallNameBigEgo SpoiledBrat. Demanding everything should be handed to him because he is an Uchiha.
** Sakura is also portrayed as a screeching harpy and Sasuke's loyal groupie. This ''has'' some canonical basis as in the early days Sakura would yell at Naruto for insulting Sasuke, but [[RonTheDeathEater because a number of fans hate her]], this gets taken UpToEleven in fanfics.

* Superhero crossovers will have Naruto be an [[AntiHero antihero]] who'll kill villains[[note]]Even though he doesn't believe in killing either and some crossovers may take place after he fought Pain and established his no killing rule[[/note]] and will berate certain [[Franchise/{{Batman}} heroes]] for not killing.[[note]]Mainly because the author wants them to despite the fact most heroes will usually have grounded reasons for not killing.[[/note]]
** Though it's worth noting that quite a few examples use an alternate backstory for Naruto (being trained and joining ANBU, for example) that led to him not developing his [[AllLovingHero canon moral code]] or have him come really close to crossing the DespairEventHorizon at some point in the series and changing because of that.
* Minato and Kushina survives the Kyubi attack and has another child. They later focuses all their attention on the [[TheFavorite child]] completely [[ParentalNeglect neglecting]] [[TheUnfavorite Naruto]] in the process..
** For some reason the other child will usually be a girl.
** There are very few fics that had Minato and Kushina loving both Naruto and the younger child equally. If they did survive. The neglect is rather baffling because Kushina and Minato are actually loving parents who will love their child equally and this can be made into an {{Irony}} as Kushina canonically wishes to have a big happy family...

* The in/famous plot of [[GenderBender gender bendering]] Naruto into a girl (whose fan-given name is Naruko). Usually she'll end up in either a [[YaoiGenre Yaoi relationship with]] Sasuke (Thus giving [[YaoiFangirl the Yaoi fangirls and boys]] pointless justification for their [[SlashFic slash fics]]) or in a harem [[YuriFan with the Ladies]] [[YaoiGenre or with the guys.]] "Naruko" often also appears as Naruto's HalfIdenticalTwin in [=AUs=].

* Many Naruto/Hinata fanfics have quite a few elements in common, besides the [[FanPreferredCouple obvious]] [[RelationshipUpgrade one]]. Hilariously, some of this elements [[AscendedFanon made their way into]] ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie''.

** Hinata being in an ArrangedMarriage with either Neji or a Hyuuga OC but being in love, or dating, Naruto. This usually goes hand-in-hand with Hiashi opposing her relationship with Naruto.

* Just like many authors use fics to point out their perceived impression of Kakashi being an awful teacher (see above), there are just as many who do the same with the Ninja Academy. It's very common fanfics in which a Jonin-sensei tests a team of newly minted Genin, finds that they're much weaker and ill-prepared to be a ninja than expected, asks them what did they learn at the Academy, and gets shocked upon finding how much the standards decayed since the Jonin was an Academy student. This may or may not end in finding out that a spy has been trying to sabotage Konoha's future generations of ninjas by quietly lowering the Academy standards.

Added DiffLines:

* There are a LOT of {{Self Insert Fic}}s, usually where someone either falls through a portal from the real world into the ''Naruto'' world, or dies in the real world and is reincarnated in the Naruto world. The codifier that [[FollowTheLeader almost all the others attempt to follow]] is ''FanFic/DreamingOfSunshine,'' where a girl is reincarnated as Shikamaru's twin sister; the page for that fic even includes a long list of imitators, at least six of which have their own work pages on this wiki. Almost all of them claim they were inspired by ''Dreaming of Sunshine'' at some stage.

* A sometimes seen one takes place after the Sound/Sand invasion where the Sand Council decides that this shinobi that beat Garaa (IE; Naruto) could become quite powerful someday and getting ties to him would benefit them. So let's send a marriage proposal to the Leaf about hitching him to Temari!
