** {{Double Subver|sion}}ted when [[LivingEmotionalCrutch Hinata]] jumps in to try to save Naruto from [[TheDragon Pain]]. She tells Naruto that she can't stay back while he's in danger [[AnguishedDeclarationOfLove because she loves him]], then attacks Pain - who simply smacks her down, stabs her, and insinuates to Naruto that she's dead. [[BerserkButton Naruto promptly]] [[UnstoppableRage loses it]] [[DespairEventHorizon worse than]] [[DarkestHour he ever]] [[FromBadToWorse has before]]. The anime turns it into a MeaningfulEcho with both characters in the opposite positions when they were younger, against a trio of bullies (the manga and ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' later [[RetCanon canonized the flashback]]).
*** Naruto and Hinata play this straight in ''The Last''. Now adults, [[spoiler:Naruto again saves her, this time from [[BigBad Toneri]], and after the FinalBattle, they ''finally'' begin their romantic relationship]]. It also serves as a CallBack and MeaningfulEcho to the story of how Naruto's parents fell in love (see below).
** Naruto and Rock Lee believed in this with Sakura in Part I, but [[SingleTargetSexuality she only had eyes for Sasuke]]...who tries to kill her twice in Part II, later leading to Naruto having to save her again, although [[ShipSinking Naruto no longer had any romantic feelings for her the second time around]].
** Played straight with Karin, who's implied to have fallen for Sasuke after he saved her from a bear in a Chuunin exam she was taking.
** Also spoofed in [[{{Filler}} Episode 101]] of the original anime. In a flashback Kakashi easily defeats the pathetic Moya Triad who had been pestering a random woman, and afterwards she's completely smitten with Kakashi. [[spoiler: Rin also loved Kakashi before and after he rescued her, even jumping in front of his attack so that the tailed beast inside her couldn't be unleashed--this was [[TearJerker her idea]] of a "rescue".]]
** Played straight with Naruto's parents, Minato and Kushina. She fell in love with him when he saved her from the Kumo ninjas that kidnapped her when she was a kid, and then [[HeroesWantRedheads boldly complimented her red hair]], which other children [[KidsAreCruel used as a reason to bully her]].
