* OnlyAFleshWound: ''"Oh, my god! That was my arm! They ripped off my arm! AARGH!"'' - A quote not uttered by anyone at any point in the series, though logic dictates it ''should be'' on at least five separate occasions. On ''two'' separate occasions, a villain has this done to them, and instead of the battle being over right there and then, they just kept fighting to eventually ''win''. This is especially jarring given how much Orochimaru was both furious and terrified at the loss of his arms (Which, granted, were ''sealed'', not just cut off, but still...).

This is especially jarring odd given how much Orochimaru was both furious and terrified at the loss of his arms (Which, granted, were ''sealed'', not just (sealed, rather than cut off, but still...).off) - however, his reaction's based around being no longer able to use ninjutsu, rather than the loss of his arms' functionality ''period''.

** Tobi revealed to Sasuke that [[spoiler:Itachi was GoodAllAlong.]]
--->'''Sasuke:''' Why would Itachi do such a thing?\\
'''Tobi:''' Don't you get it? He did it... to protect you.\\
'''Sasuke:'''Then why did he kill our family??? \\
'''Tobi:''' It is true that he slaughtered the entire Uchiha clan and then fled the Hidden Leaf Village, but it was his mission to do so. He was ordered by members of the Hidden Leaf.



** ' ''Kakashi''' to just unmasked Tobi: You are... [[spoiler:Obito]]??? One of the biggest wham lines of Naruto.

* TakeAThirdOption: The whole point of the series. From the beginning, Naruto faces people urging him to follow the "ninja way", basically saying, "Give up X or be a failure." X being human feelings (Zabuza), the will to fight (Kabuto, Pain), Sasuke (Jiraiya, Itachi, Pain, Sasuke ''himself''), etc. Being a [[TricksterArchetype trickster]] possessing the "wisdom of the fools," Naruto always [[{{Ubermensch}} dismisses that dilemma]] saying, "I won't give up X and I won't be a failure." This leads him doing some things (namely, not killing [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Nagato]] and never ever giving up saving [[BaseBreaker Sasuke]]) which are highly controversial in the Fandom.

* ToiletHumor: * There were a few examples early on, namely in the second episode of the anime where Naruto drinks badly spoiled milk, then his shadow clones all get diarrhea at once, fighting to get to the bathroom. In the Chunin Exam, Naruto won his match against Kiba strictly through a [[{{Fartillery}} fortuitously timed fart]] that momentarily stunned Kiba when he had enhanced his sense of smell several hundred times.
** It became a RunningGag; every time Naruto farted, Kiba was ''always'' in the vicinity.
** Also Naruto had a habit for stepping in dog poop, not to mention Akamaru peed on his face once.

* MassResurrection: It seems this is one of the abilities of a person who possesses the Rinnegan as long as they have enough Chakra to do so.

* ManBehindTheMan: Averted in Part I, where the villains (Itachi and Orochimaru) are presented as free agents acting completely of their own volition. [[UnderStatement Not so averted]] in part II, where we 1) gradually find out that Itachi was effectively under orders from Danzō, and 2) encounter the villain ensemble Aktasuki, which is taking orders from their leader Pain, who has been groomed and manipulated by the legendery Uchiha ancestor Madara, who is actually not Madara but has been groomed and manipulated from the start by the actual Madara, [[spoiler:who has been unknowingly dancing to the tune of Black Zetsu, who is a mere puppet carrying out the will of the BiggerBad Kaguya]].
