* TheManBehindTheMan: 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]].

* TheManBehindTheMan: Averted in Part I, where the villains (Itachi Naruto exaggerates this trope to absurd extremes, it's first revealed that [[StandardEvilOrganizationSquad Akatsuki]] is lead by a mysterious figure known as [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Pain]]. Some chapters and Orochimaru) are presented as free agents acting completely of their own volition. [[UnderStatement Not so averted]] in part II, where an important character death later, we 1) gradually find out that Itachi was effectively "Pain" is actually a [[PeoplePuppets collection of dead bodies controlled]] by a man named Nagato, who [[APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil once studied under orders from Danzō, and 2) encounter the villain ensemble Aktasuki, which same sensei]] as Naruto. Then Nagato is taking orders from their leader Pain, who has been groomed and actually being manipulated by a masked man known by the legendery Uchiha ancestor Madara, alias "Tobi" who claims to actually be the [[TheDreaded legendary shinobi known as Madara Uchiha]]. Later on, Tobi [[DeadPersonImpersonation isn't the real Madara Uchiha, but is actually not a former leaf shinobi named Obito who used to be a student of Naruto's father and later turned evil.]] Then, it turns out Obito's [[AssimilationPlot "Moon's Eye Plan"]] was actually the real Madara's plan, and Obito was also supposed to bring Madara but has been groomed back to life to he become the jinchuuriki of the Ten Tails. [[GambitPileup But later we learn that Obito never had any intention of reviving Madara and himself using him in order to become the jinchuuriki of the Ten Tails]]. But then, turn out they both was being manipulated from the start entire time by the actual Madara, [[spoiler:who has been unknowingly dancing to the tune of Black Zetsu, who is a mere puppet mysterious member of Akatsuki and a being that Madara thought he himself had created to carry out his will. And Black Zetsu? He's actually carrying out the will of Princess Kaguya, an ancient [[PhysicalGod Physical Goddess]] whom the BiggerBad Kaguya]].current shinobi clans are descended from and who created Black Zetsu centuries ago right before she was [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away]] to ensure that she would be revived. And ''then''… [[OverlyLongGag okay, just kidding.]]

** As of Chapter 675, it's revealed that [[spoiler: Madara was behind EVERYTHING that happened to Obito because HE'S the one who brainwashed the Rain ninja into chasing Rin and then having Rin get killed by Kakashi, thus starting his descent into darkness. This ALSO means he was indirectly responsible for EVERYTHING that has ALSO happened to Naruto and, to an extent, Sasuke.]]

** Sakura is a rose-haired {{Tsundere}} who was very loud about her affections for Sasuke, even though [[LovingAShadow they were initially very shallow]], and she was one of his considerably large UnwantedHarem. Hinata is a [[ShyBlueHairedGirl Shy Blue-Haired]] {{Dandere}} who [[CannotSpitItOut couldn't confess]] [[FanOfTheUnderdog her love to Naruto]] for a very long time, despite being the only one to recognize the hard working, cheerful boy for who he really was. By Part2, even their fighting styles became total opposites to each other's: they both use chakra, but Sakura is using it to increase the strength of her punches to [[SuperStrength monstrous levels]], making her a CuteBruiser, whereas Hinata is using the PressurePoint-based Gentle Fist-style of the Hyuuga clan, making her a LadyOfWar. Furthermore, as a result of their respective personalities and body figures, Sakura has ACupAngst whereas Hinata is [[HiddenBuxom hiding her buxom in baggy clothes]]. Also, according to the anime, Sakura is a LethalChef whereas Hinata is a [[SupremeChef supreme one]].

* MenGetOldWomenGetReplaced: Most kunoichi from older generations managed to somehow stay young, particularly Tsunade, whose youth is a spell, and she has never been seen on-camera in her withered old form. Mei Terumi is a kunoichi from an older era who is [[ChristmasCake worried about getting married at her age]], although she is still in her thirties and gorgeous. The only female BigBad [[spoiler:Kaguya]], is an immortal, unkillable goddess. The single exception to this, Elder Chiyo, is used mostly as a {{Foil}} for her evil grandson, Sasori, and after he dies, she does too not long after.

* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Considering the brutal nature of the this universe's profession, it becomes somewhat inevitable that certain individuals, including the the titular character, needs someone to help them find the means to carry on, despite the terrifying lifestyle.
** Itachi being the Living Emotional Crutch for Sasuke with Sasuke not realizing it until [[spoiler: Itachi dies and Sasuke learns that Itachi had done everything to protect him in an HORRIBLY convoluted way; he then goes mad with grief]] and has a huge moment of SanitySlippage.
** It's implied that Orochimaru was this for Kabuto.
** Rin. ''Oh, dear lord, just Rin''. She is not only a crutch for one, but ''two''. She was Obito's entire reason for living, and also the only one who keeps Kakashi's mental health together out of a promise he made with Obito. When she dies [[spoiler:by basically commiting suicide by Kakashi's hand after she's forcibly turned into an ApocalypseMaiden]], everything goes to hell for both boys: [[spoiler:Obito becomes a psychotic terrorist hell-bent on an AssimilationPlot,]] Kakashi becomes a mentally damaged person whose sanity is barely hanging on and is dangerously close to being DrivenToSuicide like his father before him.
** Naruto and Hinata. Both characters with self-esteem issues helped out each other during the darkest of times in their lives. Naruto's determination inspired Hinata to never give up on herself, while Hinata gently encouraged Naruto during his moments of despair. After Hinata's [[spoiler:apparent rejection to Naruto's LoveConfession in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'', our {{Determinator}} found himself in deep depression, almost giving up on saving the world. A pep talk regarding the depths and unwavering nature of Hinata's love for him snaps him out of it and gives him a HeroicSecondWind. The two would later get married and start a family.]] Hinata's status as a LivingEmotionalCrutch first becomes apparent during the Pain Invasion Arc. Along with still reeling from his master Jiraiya's death, Naruto has just [[spoiler:seen his village completely demolished, confirmed that his sensei Kakashi is dead, and just saw his frog-sensei get killed in front of him]] and still maintains control of his emotions. But as soon as he witnesses her [[spoiler:get impaled by Pain's chakra rods, right after her AnguishedDeclarationOfLove towards him, apparently killing her]], Naruto [[spoiler:crosses the DespairEventHorizon, completely loses his will to live, and nearly releases the Nine-Tails]].
--->'''Naruto:''' When Pain struck Hinata I was so mad, so full of rage, my heart ''instantly'' connected with the Nine-Tails' will.

* 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''.
