* BirdsOfAFeather: Naruto and Hinata. In regards to personality and fighting style, they embody OppositesAttract. Other than that, they actually have quite a lot in common. Both of them are [[DarkAndTroubledPast incredibly lonely people with painful pasts]]. Both were [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer deemed failures by everyone around them]]--for Naruto, it was nearly the entire village of Konoha; for Hinata, it was [[AbusiveParents her own family]]. Both were hated by everyone around them because of the respective statuses they have carried since birth--Naruto is the host of the Nine-Tails Jinchuuriki, which led to almost everyone in the village hating him throughout his childhood; Hinata was slated to be [[HeiressToTheDojo the heiress of the illustrious Hyuga clan]] but was disinherited due to her refusal to hurt her younger sister in a duel, which led to her entire clan hating her and claiming her to be weak, which led to her being [[ParentalAbandonment disowned and kicked out]] for a while. Both craved to be acknowledged and accepted by the people around them. Both [[IJustWantToBeLoved wanted to know that they mattered and desired love]]. Both have a tendency to [[HeroicSelfDeprecation get really down on themselves when they think they're "useless"]]. Both [[InsecureLoveInterest feel unworthy of being loved by someone else]], especially when it comes to [[spoiler:their love for each other]]. Both [[IGaveMyWord never go back on their word]]. Both are {{All Loving Hero}}es who are incredible empathetic, despite living in a world where that trait is easily looked down upon. This is one of the reasons why they developed a strong friendship [[spoiler:that led to [[OneTrueLove true love]] and [[HappilyMarried a happy marriage]]]]. Both are {{Determinator}}s who have proved to everyone around them that they are '''not''' failures after all. Both are respective [[TheChosenOne Chosen Ones]] and [[TheUnchosenOne Unchosen Ones]] who have helped each other throughout the series. Both are TheHeart among their friends who have [[HopeBringer inspired hope in each other and in others]] during some of the darkest moments of the series. [[AllThereInTheManual According to the databooks]], they share similar habits and likes, from the food they like (red bean soup is listed as one of their individual favorite foods) to their hobbies with plants--[[RealMenWearPink Naruto talks to them while watering them]]; Hinata likes to collect pressed flowers. Both wear [[LightIsGood bright-colored clothing]] that match their [[NiceGuy friendly nature]]--Naruto wears bright orange; Hinata wears bright purple/lavender and cream/white. Finally, Naruto and Hinata's respective signature colors--orange and purple--are placed on [[RuleOfSymbolism opposite ends of each other]] on the [[https://designcode.io/cloud/chapter1/Colors-Wheel.png color wheel]].

** Justified, to some extent; many of Naruto's opponents, such as Gaara, initially view the compassion that forms the core of Naruto's world view as weakness. By defeating them, he demonstrates that he is not held back by his views, which makes them more likely to listen to him.

By defeating them, he demonstrates that he is not held back by his views, which makes them more likely to listen to him. Many of them also used to be idealistic, so often, it's a matter of undoing the processes that made them who they were when Naruto first met them, or forcing them to see them in a new light.

Added DiffLines:

** Also sometimes justified by outside circumstances. Zabuza, for example, has just experienced the loss of his MoralityPet [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth Haku]], and Naruto's ranting makes him realize that yes, you idiot, you did in fact care for the boy. He them proceeds to acknowledge that feeling, but rather than convert to Naruto's path, he goes out in a blaze of glory instead by killing the BigBad of the arc. Like with many Wave Arc examples, EarlyInstallmentWeirdness was in full effect all around.

* BalanceOfPower: The distribution of the Tailed Beasts among the earliest villages helped stabilize the region. One of the main reasons the 4th Hokage couldn't simply let the Nine-Tails escape was that its presence would disrupt that balance and potentially start a new war. [[spoiler: One of the major final motions of the manga was about Sasuke coming to the conclusion that this system was inherently terrible and needs to get rid of.]]

** Many of Naruto's tactics during the FinalBattle are actually ones that he relied on during the earlier half of the manga. [[spoiler: First, for the first time since the post-TimeSkip section of the series began, Naruto attacks with a swarm of shadow clones, which he'd been using much more conservatively since he got back from his training trip. Then, he disguises one of the clones as the real him in order to lure Kaguya into attacking it, all while having the rest of the clones defend it fiercely, which is the same tactic he used against Neji during the Chuunin Exam.]]
** The way the FinalBattle of the series begins is full of call backs galore to the beginning and ''end'' of Part I of the series. [[spoiler: Sakura begs Sasuke not to go through with his plans on revolution, crying and trying to get him to stay, just like she did at the end of Part I. Sasuke, in turn, calls her annoying, much like how he did at the beginning of Part I when Team 7 first came together. And to cap it all off, Sasuke and Naruto begin their final battle in the Valley of the End, a very deliberate CallBack to their final fight in Part I.]]
** The very last chapter contains a callback in the form of [[spoiler: Naruto's son Boruto vandalizing the mountain portraits of the hokages, just like Naruto did in his own youth. Except that while Naruto did it because of how ostracized and lonely he was, Boruto did it because Naruto's duties as Hokage mean they don't get to spend much time together anymore.]]

* CynicismCatalyst: Tons of them. Almost every antagonist has one, usually involving a loved one being killed in some very unfair way. There's [[spoiler: Sasuke (clan killed), Itachi (forced to kill said clan), Neji (father died), Orochimaru (parents died), Tsunade (younger brother died, then lover died), Sasori (parents died), Nagato and Konan (best friend died), Tobi (teammate died), Madara (brother died), Kabuto (tricked into killing foster mom), [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Danzo (inferiority complex)]], etc.]] Most of the protagonists have this kind of thing in the backstory too, so you could argue that the main difference between them and the antagonists is that they don't let their traumas turn them evil.

[[ObliviousToLove except for Naruto himself]], due to his emotionally-stunted childhood. [[spoiler:When Naruto [[LoveRevelationEpiphany finally realizes his love for Hinata]] in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'', he is incredibly unsubtle with his feelings (which makes Hinata's ObliviousToLove status painfully ironic), causing many characters to give them knowing looks]].

He's pulled a YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness on Orochimaru, Suigetsu, Jugo, and Karin, including actively attempting to murder Oro and Karin (the latter just because she was in his way), plotted to destroy his home village and everyone in it by becoming a terrorist and joining the Akatsuki, assaults the Kage Summit killing many innocent {{samurai}} and cause the building to collapse, shuts down [[spoiler: Sakura's declaration of her love for him by {{mind rap|e}}ing her [[KickTheDog with an illusion of him stabbing her to death]], and attempted to kill Naruto, the five Kages (who were helpless and comatose due to a LotusEaterMachine at the time by the way), and the Tailed Beasts in order to take over the world. The team he assembled forgives him with no hard feelings, including Karin going right back to being in love with him. And what does he get at the end of the series? He loses a hand in his fight with Naruto, apologizes briefly for what he did, and all of his crimes get pardoned since he had a part in saving the world and Kakashi, as a kage, puts a good word for him. He's now EasilyForgiven, treated as redeemed, and marries and has a daughter with Sakura]].

Like Orochimaru [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse we have no idea what happened to him]] after he [[spoiler: helped save Sasuke]] despite causing the events of the war in the first place by reviving Madara along with every other famous shinobi and forcing them to fight against their will to assist Obito in essentially destroying the world. ''Manga/{{Naruto Gaiden}}'' reveals that he not only wasn't punished for his part in the war, but is now running an orphanage with the Leaf Village's approval.

* BirdsOfAFeather: Naruto and Hinata. In regards to personality and fighting style, they embody OppositesAttract. Other than that, they actually have quite a lot in common. Both of them are [[DarkAndTroubledPast incredibly lonely people with painful pasts]]. Both were [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer deemed failures by everyone around them]]--for Naruto, it was nearly the entire village of Konoha; for Hinata, it was [[AbusiveParents her own family]]. Both suffered because of the respective statuses they have carried since birth--Naruto is the host of the Nine-Tails Jinchuuriki, which led to almost everyone in the village hating him throughout his childhood; Hinata was slated to be [[HeiressToTheDojo the heiress of the illustrious Hyuga clan]] but was disinherited due to her refusal to hurt her younger sister in a duel, which led to her entire clan hating her and claiming her to be weak, which led to her being [[ParentalAbandonment disowned and kicked out]] for a while. Both craved to be acknowledged and accepted by the people around them. Both [[IJustWantToBeLoved wanted to know that they mattered and desired love]]. Both have a tendency to [[HeroicSelfDeprecation get really down on themselves when they think they're "useless"]]. Both [[InsecureLoveInterest feel unworthy of being loved by someone else]], especially when it comes to [[spoiler:their love for each other]]. Both are [[LightIsGood incredibly]] [[NiceGuy empathetic]], despite living in a world where that trait is easily looked down upon. This is how they developed a strong friendship [[spoiler:that led to [[OneTrueLove true love]] and [[HappilyMarried a happy marriage]]]]. Both are {{Determinator}}s who have proved to everyone around them that they are '''not''' failures after all. Both are respective [[TheChosenOne Chosen Ones]] and [[TheUnchosenOne Unchosen Ones]] who have helped each other throughout the series. Both are {{All Loving Hero}}es who have [[HopeBringer restored hope in each other and in others]] during some of the darkest moments of the series. [[AllThereInTheManual According to the databooks]], they share similar habits and likes, from the food they like (red bean soup is listed as one of their individual favorite foods) to their hobbies with plants--[[RealMenWearPink Naruto talks to them while watering them]]; Hinata likes to collect pressed flowers. Finally, Naruto is associated with the color Orange, and Hinata is associated with the color Purple. Orange and Purple are secondary colors that are placed on [[RuleOfSymbolism opposite ends of each other]] on the [[https://designcode.io/cloud/chapter1/Colors-Wheel.png color wheel]]. What do they have in common? The primary color {{Red|StringOfFate}}.
