** Tobirama, aka the Second Hokage, killed Madara's last remaining brother, which led to Madara obtaining the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan; gave the Uchiha clan a base of operations that was isolated from the village ''and in a former prison to boot''; invented the Edo Tensei, which was used detrimentally multiple times in this series; and, after Madara's death, hid the body for further study instead of disposing of it, [[spoiler: which led to Madara resurrecting himself through a time-delayed Izanagi]].

* RegionalRedecoration: Madara mentions this as a BadassBoast, saying that it's a good thing that his rival Hashirama isn't present since they won't have to redraw the map "that much". He then cuts a mountain in half.

He then cuts a mountain in half. His climatic battle with Hashirama in ''Naruto'''s backstory was also what created the Valley of the End, where Naruto and Sasuke battled before the timeskip, in the first place.

* This is actually the default way of "copying" other mages' spells in ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'': instead of taking spell formulas over verbatim, a mage usually adapts one of their own spells to emulate the effects of the one they want to learn. Two of Nanoha's students, for instance, have "inherited" her signature spells, but Subaru's Divine Buster is an extremely close range version of the original (long-ranged) spell, while Teana's Starlight Breaker is essentially her own Crossfire Shoot boosted with Nanoha's mana-gathering technique.

* OnePiece
** In Thriller Bark arc, by virtue of merging the gigantic zombie Oars' shadow with his own, Gekko Moria the shadow-man can manipulate Oars' shadow to shape-shift his body (think shadow puppets, but in reverse), including copying the moves of Luffy, the RubberMan.
** In Fishman Island arc, Luffy, with his Haki and Gear Second, can emulate his brother Ace's signature Fire Fist attack (called Gomu Gomu no Red Hawk) even though Ace is a flame user and Luffy isn't.

* VariantPowerCopying:
** Early on in the story, neither Sasuke nor Naruto can do Rock Lee's Front Lotus attack combination, so they make new versions. The Front Lotus kicks an opponent in the air and then uses an IzunaDrop to smash an opponent on the head. Sasuke's variation is the Lion Barrage, which copies the initial kick but instead kicks them all the way down. Naruto's variation is the Naruto Uzumaki Barrage, which uses clones to perform the multiple attacks and falling attacks, since he lacks the skill to do it normally.
** Naruto's signature move, the Rasengan, was created by the Fourth Hokage to copy a Tailed Beast Ball. Later in the story, Naruto also learns to combine the attacks together since they're so similar.

* WomenInRefrigerators: Invoked a few times in a toned-down version where the women at least survive to maybe be important to the plot in a real way another day.

* WarIsHell: One of the main themes of Naruto is that war is part of an everlasting CycleOfRevenge that has plagued humanity since the beginning of time. Love breeds sacrifice, sacrifice breeds hatred, and hatred breeds war. War is regarded as the source of everything's gone wrong in the world, and the evidence provided does not suggest otherwise.
** In fact, Tobi said "For a child, war is hell". War was responsible for making Itachi who he is and also very much had something to do with Pain's motives. When the three Sannin met Nagato (Pain), Yahiko and Konan, Orochimaru suggested killing them because only more pain and hell would await them and tragically that turns out to be the case.
** The Fourth Shinobi World War defines this trope when you hear the death toll of the Alliance forces for the first day. 40,000 Ninja and samurai died in a single day of fighting.
** Flashbacks show that the era constant warfare that Hashirama and Madara grew up in was even worse than anything in the present day. The average life expectancy for soldiers and civilians alike was 30 thanks to the deaths of so many child soldiers. Illustrated perfectly in one page depicting Hashirama's youngest brother Itama crying in fear while surrounded by a band of angry Uchiha, with the next panel showing his bloody corpse.
