* TrueCompanions: One of the most heartwarming elements of the story is seeing the members of the eponymous team turning into this as time goes on. Specially in the case of [[AllTheOtherReindeer Naruto]] and [[AbusiveParents Hinata]], as the team eventually becomes their main solace given their horrible childhood and the closest thing they have to a real family.

* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: Iruka. During the border patrol mission in chapter 7, Naruto and his team confront a trio of missing ninjas that kidnapped Konohamaru and Hanabi. Konohamaru tries to prevent Naruto from fighting them, telling him that they killed Iruka, which only contributes to Naruto's moment of UnstoppableRage. Turns out later that Iruka was alive, just badly injured, and Naruto visits him in the hospital. This instance only makes it more poignant when another character [[KilledOffForReal really dies]] later in the story.]]

* CurbStompBattle: Naruto vs Sasuke. [[spoiler:One punch, right in the jaw, and Sasuke is '''OUT'''.]]
** Well, Sasuke had only [[spoiler:deliberately and with malice aforethought slammed down on Naruto's BerserkButton regarding Hinata, ''immediately after Naruto had just watched Neji beat her half to death''. WhatAnIdiot.]]
** The author gives some arguments at the end of chapter 15 as to why [[spoiler: Sasuke]] lost, suggesting that, among other things, [[spoiler:Naruto is in better condition in this fight, and has been training with someone who defeated Sasuke in canon]].

* DarkerAndEdgier: In a general sense, the altered history of the fic serves to make Naruto and Hinata's life struggles significantly worse, and both of them start out much more cynical and insecure than in canon. [[spoiler:At separate points, they both even have ''suicidal'' thoughts.]]



* {{Determinator}}: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] during Hinata's fight with Neji, where instead of showing how determined she is toward living up to her and Naruto's ninja way, Kurenai instead interprets Hinata's actions (i.e., fighting doggedly) as a failed suicide attempt, followed by a scene in the hospital where Hinata denounces her own existence and confirms Kurenai's suspicions.

* GratuitousJapanese: A lot of it. Common expressions include "Ano", "Gomen," and "Arigato."

* ColossusClimb: The fight between Naruto and Gaara during the Sand/Sound invasion eventually involves this. Given that [[spoiler:he didn't sign the toad summoning scroll and can't call Gamabunta]], when his opponent enters the Shukaku form, Naruto doesn't have any other option than to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome run up the giant tanuki demon in order to reach Gaara and awaken him.]] Granted, he used the Nine-Tails's chakra to power himself up for the climb, but still...

* PayEvilUntoEvil: At the end of their fight, Naruto grabs the already beaten and defenseless [[spoiler:Neji]] by the collar of his shirt and [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown claws at his face with the Kyuubi chakra]]. Although [[WhatTheHellHero he does get called on it]], most spectators of the fight think it was done in retaliation for [[spoiler:Neji almost killing Hinata during the preliminaries]], so they don't really make a ruckus about it. [[spoiler:The trope is actually [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] when the [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming real reasons]] behind Naruto's actions are revealed later.]]

** NotSoStoic: He yells for medics after Hinata's brutal beatdown by Neji. He soon followed that with the [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome most epic]] display of TranquilFury in the story.

* ThatCameOutWrong: In chapter 3, Naruto tries to compliment Hinata on how she's worried about doing her fair share of the work [[spoiler: a D-rank mission where they do housework for an injured homeowner]] and not avoiding it altogether like he believes other girls would. With each word out of his mouth, [[EpicFail he fails harder]], [[HilarityEnsues and harder]], [[CrowningMomentOfFunny and harder]].

** While is still in the air whether or not Sasuke will go the same path as in canon, some of his actions can be interpreted as either one of these tropes. [[spoiler: Namely, [[KickTheSonOfABitch his killing of one of the Sound team]] in the Forest of Death after receiving the cursed seal from Orochimaru, and his [[BerserkButton mocking of Hinata to Naruto's face]] during the preliminaries.]]

* WhatTheHellHero: Kurenai to Hinata, regarding [[spoiler:pushing herself too far, believing that she doesn't care how they would react if she died]]. Naruto takes issue with her doing so. She also, more indirectly, criticizes Shino's suggestion that Tenten buy flowers for Neji's funeral, and Naruto's risking forfeiting his match to wait for Hinata by suggesting that they're her fault.

** A lesser example is Naruto taunting Neji by saying his dead father would be disappointed in him. Only slightly mitigated by it probably being quite right then (Hizashi was more-or-less a good man, Neji was, at the time, a {{Jerkass}}).



** Hinata, a relative underdog, still loses to her more experienced cousin, Neji. TheDeterminator is also deconstructed and seen [[spoiler: as suicidal if one refuses to give up despite very bad odds.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Naruto is trapped by Shikaku during the Sand/Sound invasion. What does he do to break out of the grasp? Use his Chakra pulse technique, with the energy causing the paw to explode since it was being contained.
** [[spoiler: The Third Hokage may have survived the Invasion, but he has lost an arm in the process. He has no choice but to step down. Tsunade points out that regrowing his arm would potentially kill him, since it requires a lot of energy, something the Third doesn't have much of anymore.]]
** Hinata, a relative underdog, still loses to her more experienced cousin, Neji. TheDeterminator is also deconstructed and seen [[spoiler: as suicidal if one refuses to give up despite very bad odds.]]
** Unlike Naruto and Hinata, who could spend many hours training together without anyone caring, Shino isn't as lucky and CantCatchUp, since he has clan duties and a family at home waiting for him.
** AnyoneCanDie, even [[spoiler: main characters like Kurenai]]. PlotArmor does not exist.

** Naruto is given weights to attach to his limbs to help him grow stronger. He decides to pile as many as he can onto him in an attempt to get stronger even faster...only to be weighed down by all of the added weight. He is taken aside and told to adjust the weights gradually, otherwise he would just hurt himself.
*** Similarly, Hinata tries using the weights while in an exhausted state and collapses in exhaustion. Naruto tells her that she will just damage her muscles if she overexerts herself.
** After being coldly rejected by her many times, Naruto gives up on [[{{Tsundere}} Sakura]], and advises Lee to do the same. Lee listens to what he has to say.
*** Sakura overhears the conversation above and is shocked by what she heard. She [[NeverMyFault initially tries rationalizing it by thinking that Naruto was being unfair and that she didn't want to ruin her chances with getting with Sasuke]] [[SubvertedTrope before remembering how she ''rejected'' the frequent date requests (i.e. hitting him)]] and [[JerkassRealization realizing how it has been negatively impacting her relationships with others]].
** The story demonstrates what would happen if someone were to be hit by Choji's Human Boulder attack head on and doesn't manage to block it. Yoroi is crushed underneath and it is implied that the majority of his bones were broken as a result.
** Shikamaru's fight with Misumi shows how Misumi's jutsu could backfire on him. Shikamru captures him in his Shadow Possession Jutsu while his body is elastic, and bends backward then forward. The motion, along with Misumi's neck being disjointed, means he is unable to stop his forehead from hitting the ground and gets a concussion.
** Hinata, a relative underdog, is defeated by her more experienced and talented cousin.
** [[spoiler: Sasuke [[KickTheDog taunts Naruto by calling Hinata weak in an attempt to throw him off before their match in the preliminary round.]] Instead of being shaken by the taunt, it only pisses Naruto off, who proceeds to [[CurbStompBattle knock Sasuke out within the first five seconds of the fight]]]]. This also alienates [[spoiler: Sasuke]] from the others, such as Sakura (who took sadistic pleasure at his defeat), who thought that he went way too far.
** Naruto's fight with Gaara in his Shikaku form has him enclosed in the demon's fist at one point in the battle. How does he break free? Charging up his chakra pulse move until it explodes, destroying Shikaku's hand in the process. WordOfGod states in his notes:
--> S'TarKan: Light a firecracker and let it go off in the open palm of your hand you will get a bruise and a minor burn. Let it go off inside a clenched fist and you will likely need help picking up your fingers.
** [[spoiler:Kurenai]] is killed after escaping [[spoiler:Tsukuyomi]], being in a weakened state after escaping. It also doesn't help that this fic's version of [[spoiler:Itachi]] has no qualms against killing people.
