* WizardDuel: Ninjutsu being [[MagicByAnyOtherName what it is]], the battles become more arcane as time goes on. By the final arc, all the relevant fights are essentially fights with pure chakra, summons, shapeshifting, sealing and reality warping; there's little if any hand to hand combat, and even that is often enhanced with chakra.

** The specifics of what Hinata wrought upon the Juubi-lings with Divination: 64 Twin Lion Fist strikes are left to our imagination (even in the anime), which is especially {{egregious}} given that we never got to see what the Twin Lion Fists do in the first place.

* OutOfFocus: Most of anyone in this series who has just played some significant part in the plot and is not part of Team 7 or a top-tier villain goes straight to the OffstageWaitingRoom. In fact, more often than not, when the focus shifts to any of the secondary characters it's because something ''[[ADeathInTheLimelight bad]]'' is about to happen to them. Particularly {{egregious}} in that Sakura, who ''is'' a main character from Team 7, also falls prey to this for most of Part II of the manga.

** Also, as mentioned above under ShipTease, this applies to nearly all would-be romantic relationships in the series. Apparent turning points just pass the story by, make a wooshing sound, leave the impression of a resolution and then go away, as if they were never there. Apart from the ones mentioned already, the most {{egregious}} instance has to be the sudden, violent disappearance of Karin's solemn disillusionment with Sasuke.

* LastConfessionWins: {{Inverted|Trope}}, with Sakura's [[NeverLiveItDown infamous]] [[FalseConfession fake love confession]] to Naruto in Chapter 469, which came after Hinata's sincere AnguishedDeclarationOfLove in Chapter 437. Not only does Sakura's fake confession spectacularly ''fail'' to win, it explicitly ''loses''--it is rejected outright, rightfully accused of not being emotionally honest because it was genuinely ''not'' an honest confession, and in retrospect, serves as the '''definitive''' ShipSinking for [=NaruSaku=].

** Sasuke ''was'' a straight-up [[WatsonianVersusDoylist Doylist]] example. Naming a ninja "Uchiha Sasuke" is akin to naming a nurse Fanny Nightingale (you may have heard of SarutobiSasuke). Then we find out that in-universe he's named after the Third Hokage's father, whose name actually ''was'' Sarutobi Sasuke.

* SarutobiSasuke: Sasuke Uchiha and the family of the Third Hokage (Hiruzen, Asuma and Konohamaru Sarutobi) take part of their names from him. Incidentally, Sarutobi Sasuke is the name of the Third hokage's father, whom Sasuke is named after InUniverse.

** 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.
