* StationsOfTheCanon: It's actually going down the road towards ultimate defiance; the divergence point is set well before the anime opens, and ultimately will part with established canon altogether. Granted, [[JustifiedTrope this is largely because]] the fic itself was fully outlined before posting, and so contradicts many subsequent plot points and revelations made in canon.

* StationsOfTheCanon: It's actually going Although there are major differences from canon (including the removal of the Land of Waves arc), the fanfic still has many significant events and arcs from Part 1, such as the Chuunin Exams, the Invasion of Konoha, and the Search for Tsunade (albeit distinctly modified). However, the story is to go down the road towards ultimate defiance; the divergence point initial [[ForWantOfANail nail]] in question is set well before the anime opens, and ultimately will eventually causes the narrative to part with established canon altogether. Granted, [[JustifiedTrope this is largely because]] the fic itself was fully outlined before posting, and so contradicts many subsequent plot points and revelations made in canon.

On the other hand, Shikamaru's finals match goes much the same as in canon, and still ends with him taking advantage of holes in the ground that Naruto made earlier even if the cause of the holes is different.

* BadassAdorable: Hinata.

to:

* BadassAdorable: Hinata.Hinata is a petite, extremely meek girl who blushes whenever she receives a compliment (especially one from her crush), but she also can kick highly trained grown men's asses when sufficiently motivated and displays great skill in a variety of areas.



* DecoyProtagonist: [[spoiler:Prior to [[spoiler:Chapter 20]], if not for the fact that [[spoiler:Naruto and Hinata are displayed as the two main characters]], you could be forgiven for thinking that [[spoiler:Kurenai is TheHero of this story.]] Much of the altered backstory and the changes the proverbial nail has wrought are thanks to [[spoiler:her mentoring of Team 8]], after all.
* DeconstructionFic: The entire story deconstructs many aspects, plot points, and characterizations of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' as a whole. Naruto's status as a pariah is the result of something more serious than a case of AllTheOtherReindeer. The teaching methods of a SinkOrSwimMentor like Kakashi are shown to be vastly inferior when compared to the more involved methods of Kurenai and Gai. The abuse Hinata has to deal with at home (albeit much more severe than in canon) has horribly warped her sense of self worth [[spoiler: to the point where she would rather die in a pointless duel than lose and be considered a failure again]]. Even Naruto's [[HighlyVisibleNinja own style of dress]] is critiqued.
* DesignatedGirlFight: In addition to the two from the preliminaries, [[spoiler:Hinata versus Temari]] during the Sand/Sound invasion stands out. In part because most of the previous group battles involving Team 8 had been against fully male teams (so Hinata and Kurenai tend to fight men more often than not), in part because of the intensity of the fight, as both combatants were desperately trying to defend someone.
* {{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 (aka - 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.

** Shino invokes this in a positive way during his confrontation with his clan's elders:

I've dealt with that issue among my peers, as I am sure each of you have done at some point. Many cannot look beyond our allies. The presence of kikai bugs hosted within our bodies makes it impossible for many to relate to us in any meaningful way. But just because I have two colonies of kikai doesn't mean I ''am'' a kikaiÖ just as Uzumaki Naruto containing the Kyuubi no Kitsune doesn't mean he ''is'' the demon."
