* Early on in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Kakashi says "Ninjas who break the rules are scum. But ninjas who abandon their friends are ''worse'' than scum." Later, there's a flash back in which, on a mission, Kakashi had been attempting to follow the rules strictly to the letter at the expense of a captured teammate, and his other teammate pretty much says this.\\
\\
On paper, this looks like an asspull, as the flashback takes place in the Shippuden series, which takes place after a 3-year time skip, which is also ''after'' the 200+ episodes of the original series... In the manga, though, the flashback happened much earlier - they just didn't animate it until Shippuden, for some reason.

Sometimes they come up with it themselves and automatically remember it due it occurring at a pivotal moment in their lives. Other times it's depicted in more of a throwaway-moment where they just like the way it sounds.
