* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* DivingSave: Naruto side-tackles Kiba out of the way and Hinata snatches up Akamaru before the two rescuees would be struck or maybe eaten by a giant snake.

** Shino invokes this in a positive way during his confrontation with his clan's elders:
--->'''Elder''': "He's still a damn demon!"\\
'''Shino''': "No. He's the demon's ''jailer''. We, of all people should understand that what someone holds inside themselves is not the sum total of their being. 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."

* CrazyPrepared: Naruto strangely enough. During the Forest of Death chunnin exam the characters kept mentioning how they had no idea why Naruto brought X item but it sure came in handy: e.g. he brought multiple collapsible tents by himself and other things. This is Hinata's influence. One way her poor self-esteem manifests is that she always makes sure she has any item that she might foreseeably need, within reason. Naruto notices this tendency in chapter nine (after Naruto throws up during a training session, Hinata offers him a clean cloth and cup of tea from her thermos) and decides he should emulate it. Being Naruto, of course, he doesn't worry about the 'within reason' part.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Team 8 was originally assembled to specialize in reconnaissance. Kurenai, however, chose to switch Naruto in place of Kiba to avert this trope.
** Naruto, Shino, and Hinata were able to defeat an enemy Jonin early on partially because he specialized more in ''stealth'' than in fighting.

* JerkAss: As mentioned before, most members of the Hyuuga clan fall into this, including Neji, Hanabi and ''especially'' Hiashi. The members of Team 7 are initially portrayed as this as well.

** Narrowly averted during [[spoiler:Kurenai's funeral; Naruto becomes an emotionally distraught mess, so Hinata rushes to his side without thinking (or even acknowledging the DeathGlare her father was giving her). This pissed Hiashi off. Shino then comforts the grieving Naruto. This pisses Hiashi off further. He's about to haul an also-grieving Hinata off when Asuma and Kakashi [[StealthHiBye appear on either side of him]]; their reaction to Hiashi's intentions is summed up as 'One step further and I will Chidori you right in the face, then teach the entire village how to Chidori you right in the face'.]]

* LaserGuidedKarma: An interesting case in which there's good karma and bad karma dosings involved. The majority of Konoha shuns Naruto for being the host of the Nine-Tailed Fox and as a result, the betting odds for the Chuunin Exams have their ratio heavily skewed against Naruto. So Naturally, when Naruto starts winning every fight that comes his way, all of the townsfolk that shunned him are screwed out of a lot of money and Iruka, who always believed in Naruto from the beginning and always bet on him ,gets not only a fortune in bet earnings, but also gets to bankrupt a lot of Hyuuga clansmen.

* LightningBruiser: Thanks to the supplemental training in taijutsu he is taking with Gai and Rock Lee, Naruto has gradually turned into an example. This is especially evident during his fight with Gaara in the Chunin Exams. [[spoiler: He not only manages to outrun the other jinchuuriki's sand defenses, but hits him so hard that Gaara ends up with a concussion]]. And that's not taking into account the [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Kyuubi chakra]], which not only increases his speed even more, but also gives him enough strength [[OhCrap to punch through metal]].
* [[LikeASonToMe Like A Daughter To Me]]: Kurenai says she would be proud to call Hinata her daughter. [[spoiler:In her will.]]

Cut to a scene of Iruka suddenly getting shivers, reacting as if a major violation of the Universe laws was happening.

** Although his language is generally coarser, Naruto dropped his first actual F bomb on Neji in chapter 19 (although it may have been more of an F mine, since it was in the middle of a prepared speech).
