** The Rinnegan then gives users access to a host of new, completely unrelated skills including: TheBeastmaster, GravityMaster, EnergyAbsorption, SoulEating, PoweredArmor, HealingHands, MassResurrection, LieDetector, and chains made out of chakra. Nagato displays a few other manners in which the Rinnegan can be used. Through splitting his abilities into 6 different bodies, he gains SeeingThroughAnothersEyes as well. Finally, just like the Mangekyou Sharingan, it seems that users of the Rinnegan gain unique abilities as well. Madara Uchiha gains the ability to summon invisible clones of himself, while Sasuke Uchiha gains a completely new type of teleportation unrelated to any of the other versions displayed in the series and DimensionTraveler.

** The Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan doesn't change the users abilities, but it does allow them to SpamAttack their abilities as long as they have chakra, without having to worry about going blind.

* SuperpowerLottery: The members of the Uchiha Clan, with their Sharingan eye fall into this naturally. It's revealed, however, that they have the ability to win another lottery by attaining the Mangekyou Sharingan. While the Mangekyou comes with the NecessaryDrawback of blinding the user over time, this can be overcome in the event that the user transplants the eyes of a sibling. Furthermore, we eventually discover that the Rinnegan, a superpower lottery in its own right, is actually the final evolution of the Sharingan. This means that anyone who gains the Sharingan has the potential to gain the Rinnegan, in which case they can all the abilities of both eyes!
** Abilities of the Sharingan include: PowerCopying, CombatClairvoyance, and turning the user into a MasterOfIllusion.
** The abilities granted by the Mangekyou Sharingan vary from user to user. Those we've seen include: TechnicolorFire, Teleportation, Intangibility, more advanced MasterOfIllusion skills, and the ability to summon a giant construct around the user made of PureEnergy.

* LoveHurts: Naruto's love for Sasuke has torn him apart ever since he defected. [[LovingAShadow His one-sided shallow crush on Sakura]] at the beginning didn't give him anything nicer until the end either. Poor guy can't even be relaxed in a mutual romance when [[spoiler:he confesses his love to [[OneTrueLove Hinata]] in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie''; he gets coldly [[BreakHisHeartToSaveHim "rejected"]] and finds out that she's getting married to [[BigBad Toneri]], which leads him to get a HeroicBSOD for four days--three of which he spent in an AngstComa--until his friends snap him out of it. Fortunately he gets to [[EarnYourHappyEnding Earn His Happy Ending]] with all of the listed above]].
** And Sakura herself hasn't had it easy either because of Sasuke (whom she has decided to kill ''with her own hands'' to spare him from more grief and betrayal). At the end of the manga [[spoiler:she finally [[EarnYourHappyEnding Earns Her Happy Ending]] by getting together with him]].
** Actually this series of rife with this, whether romantic or not. There's Hinata, who takes a suicidal attack to protect Naruto, whom she loves because he gave her the will [[PluckyGirl to be strong]]; Gaara, who only wanted to be loved, but was hated by everyone until he befriended Naruto, and later cries when facing Sasuke; Konan, whose LoveInterest is none other than Pain; Jiraiya, who was Tsunade's [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Unlucky Childhood Friend]]; Kakashi, who learned what friendship and love were when he lost his best friend Obito and then was forced to kill Rin who loved him and which he promised Obito to protect; Obito who actually survived and witnessed all this; etc.

** Inverted with Naruto and Sakura; Naruto says that Sakura "kind of" is his girlfriend, which is blatantly false and earns him the obligatory smack upside the head. In retrospect, Naruto was put on the spot and didn't actually know how to answer, which is evident by his hesitation and bland facial expression before he finally said the first thing that came to mind, while Sakura was genuinely put off by this outlandish claim, because she and Naruto were [[LikeBrotherAndSister closer like siblings]] than anything else and Naruto ''knew'' that [[SingleTargetSexuality she only ever loved Sasuke]] (he outright confirmed this in Chapter 474). At the time, though, fans were left to ponder whether Naruto was perhaps being sincere and whether Sakura was perhaps protesting too much; bonus points for Minato thinking that Sakura reminds him of his wife, Kushina. [[RedHerring This ambiguity]] [[TrollingCreator was very much intentional]].

** Subverted with [[spoiler:Sasuke and Sakura]], who act out several scenes that give this impression ([[spoiler:even going as far as trying to kill each other when they're still enemies]]) but are shown to be married in the DistantFinale.
* ShipTease: The series is caught between an insistence on milking fan interest in the LoveDodecahedron for all it's worth on the one hand, and a [[FightingSeries genre-typical]] reluctance to actually deal with {{Romance Arc}}s on the other. As a result, whatever bones are thrown to the {{shipper}}s tend to end up in this category. Even though "moments" do happen, they are never played to the point where a RelationshipUpgrade or ShipSinking can be declared with any certainty; instead of following through, the plot quickly, elegantly, and invariably pulls away, sometimes for ''dozens of volumes'', before revisiting the issue. In the series' final arcs, the teases become gradually bolder, and yet the "tease-backpedal" dynamic is still in place in spite of that, with the backpedals becoming markedly more calculated and deliberate; by his own admission, they was essentially the author's favorite way to [[TrollingCreator troll]] that part of his audience still masochistic enough to pay attention. This goes along right up until the DistantFinale (see under "Shipping Rollercoaster" in the [[{{Analysis/Naruto}} Analysis page]] for more details).
