** Hinata's little sister Hanabi played a significant role in the former's backstory; Hanabi was considered stronger and more promising than her sister ''despite'' the age gap, and this (among other things) led their father to hold Hinata in great contempt and eventually disown her, while presumably choosing Hanabi to eventually inherit the clan. Following this plot hook, Hanabi disappears off the face of the Earth, and for most of the manga she is not even mentioned in passing (which, understand, is a really sad place to be; in this manga, even the most minor of recurring characters get mentioned in passing now and then). [[spoiler:Hanabi finally resurfaces--after a fashion--during the ongoing climax of the Fourth Great Ninja War arc, where she appears briefly in Hinata's LotusEaterMachine dream world. And then she truly returns ''at last'' at the end of the series in ''Naruto: The Last''.]]

** Naruto chews out Sakura for her [[BreakHisHeartToSaveHim painfully fake]] [[FalseConfession love confession]] rather angrily. [[ShipSinking He stopped having a crush on her afterwards]], and their friendship was strained for a while.

* WrapItUp: The DistantEpilogue (Chapter #700) and the movie, ''Naruto: The Last''. Due to pressure from the manga's publisher, the author found himself having to tie up the story in way, ''way'' fewer chapters than he had (probably) originally intended. Though the effort to wrap things up in the last few chapters is very evident, it was pretty clear from the start that doing a decade-and-a-half manga justice in half a dozen chapters of continuous storytelling is impossible. The last chapter and movie take advantage of the inherent {{Time Skip}}s to resolve Naruto's ambition to become Hokage, paint the aftermath of the war in broad strokes, and, most of all, make a dedicated effort to (finally!) unravel the LoveDodecahedron. In contrast, we [[AbortedArc never find out]] what [[spoiler:Kaguya needed an army of white Zetsus for]], and the details of what ''really'' happened with Sasuke in the end aside from his [[spoiler:redemption]]. Nor do we know what happens to Orochimaru.

** After [[JerkassHasAPoint getting called out by Sai]] for how much of a burden telling Naruto to bring back Sasuke was, [[FalseConfession Sakura tries confessing to Naruto]] [[BlatantLies that she loves him now]]. Under a lot of stress at this moment, Naruto immediately sees right through it, [[WhatTheHellHero calls her out for lying to him and to herself]], and [[ShipSinking outright rejects her]].

** Hinata somehow manages to survive being stabbed point-blank in the neck, getting caught in the blast radius of a WaveMotionGun and lying there alone, bleeding and unconscious, for several minutes, while two PersonsOfMassDestruction summon gravity blasts and giant chakra balls all over the resulting smoking crater.

** GeodesicCast: The team 7's [[TwoGuysAndAGirl structure]] "''Two males that are [[RedOniBlueOni of contrasting personality]], [[TheSmurfettePrinciple one]] female''" [[PowerTrio group]], repeated again and again. As the manga progresses it seems to slowly drift away from this gimmick. Justified for Team 7. It's explicitly stated Sasuke and Naruto were both assigned to Team 7 because Sasuke was first-ranked in their Academy class and Naruto was last, and it's tradition to put first and last on the same team to balance out its capabilities.

** Sakura's infamous [[FalseConfession fake love confession]] to Naruto reads like a bullet list of all the oft-cited reasons why they should be together, which makes Naruto's flabbergasted reaction to it ("[[ShipSinking I hate people who lie to themselves!]]") very suspect of being this trope in action.

** In Episode 499, the penultimate episode of ''Shippuden'' (the arc of the preparations for [[spoiler:[[OfficialCouple Naruto and Hinata's]] wedding]]), after learning of the rest of cast's mission to get the perfect wedding gift for them, Hinata innocently says "I never thought [[spoiler:our wedding]] would cause so much trouble". Considering the amount of shipping wars that [[BrokenBase split the fanbase]] through the course of the series, despite [[spoiler: Naruto/Hinata]] being one of the ''biggest'' {{Fan-Preferred Couple}}s in anime and manga for the last fifteen years with the manga's entire run, this is perfectly fitting.
