* Iruka's tearful apology to Naruto for ostracizing him with the rest of the village for years, especially when Naruto starts crying too. Iruka's just taken a giant Shuriken to the back that was meant for Naruto, making the scene even more emotional.

* When Naruto's forced to clean Hokage Rock after defacing it with paint, Iruka tells him he's not going home until it's completely clean. What's Naruto's answer?
-->'''Naruto''': So what? It's not like there's anyone waiting at home for me!
* The way Mizuki manipulates Naruto throughout the first chapter; taking advantage of his loneliness and desire to graduate just to trick him into stealing an important scroll. And to make matters worse he reveals the reason why Naruto's been treated as an outcast, then tries to murder him ''and'' Iruka, all with a smile on his face.

-->"Hiruzen... It's my turn next. Just as you gave your life to protect the Hidden Leaf Village, this time I will, too. I will stop them, but in the end, I never got to be Hokage. No matter how far I ran, I could never catch up to you... You were a tree leaf upon which light shone. I... was nothing but a foundation hidden in darkness. So, what do you think of me, eh, Hiruzen? ...What was I to you?"

As he sees a flashback of himself and Hiruzen as boys, young and happy and friends, before the burden of handling the darkest affairs of the Leaf turned Danzo into the ruthless extremist he'd become.

* After Naruto shares his memories with everyone, we also sees a shot of...Jiraiya's grave and memorial. Cue ''Orochimaru'' looking unusually solemn as a result along with Tsunade.

** What makes it even worse? Their final talk has Jiraiya playfully tell Tsunade bet he won't make it back, saying that her horrible luck is sure to save his life. He then adds that if he returns alive...before trailing off and looking at her meaningfully, shocking her...before he deflects the conversation instantly and laughs off how he's not meant to be happy. When she's waiting for his return, Tsunade privately smiles and muses when he's back, she won't allow him to put up a tough front any more for her...there are strong hints that she was ''finally'' starting to reciprocate his feelings, only to have him die on his most important mission, breaking her heart all over again.

* During Gaara's speech (Shippuden 261), there's a flashback to a younger Deidara blowing up Iwa, and Kurotsuchi standing watching. The expression on her face is sad enough, but remember that it's not just because her village is being destroyed- it's because Deidara is the one doing it and leaving the village, the guy she addressed as her nii-san.

* Karura's death scene and the revelation that she really did love her son, enough that death itself couldn't stop her from protecting him, just like she'd promised. This doubles as both awesome and heartwarming, because while it's known that the One-Tail can control sand, it's Karura's love that's protecting Gaara. To put it simply: her love for her son was so strong that she could force the One-Tail's chakra to protect him, and when the One-Tail was removed, that bit of it's power never left.

* Despite Naruto's efforts, the Ten Tail's reaches it's final form and annihilates the alliance in one fell swoop, the face Naruto makes, nearly breaking in tears as he stands drained before those he failed to protect is a testament of how awful the situation has become.

** Obito finally dies and reunites in passage to the afterlife with Rin, reverted back to his old self again, before he was torn apart by the cave-in and corrupted by evil. Rin has been watching him all this time and waiting for Obito. They go to paradise together. But his death has Naruto tearing up. It's also a KarmicDeath- Obito once called Kakashi trash for letting Rin die, and Black Zetsu equally refers to him as rubbish for being a traitor. But Obito accepts his fate and soldiers on through it. He cries TearsOfJoy when Rin confirms her feelings for him by saying she waited and watched him until now.

* Orochimaru's minions. The genin and the Sound Four-- all dying horrible deaths, with the oldest one being no more than fifteen. That's right-- when kids in our world were talking on their cell-phones and wondering who was dating who, or what's for dinner, these kids were ready to risk their lives to kill for Orochimaru, whom they obviously felt respected them but really could only care if their deaths furthered his plans, or did not hinder them. And some--such as Dosu--understood, but still followed orders. WHY?! It's worse than the usual child-soldiers just because how obviously dark their stories are.

* Konan's last battle with Tobi, which also counts due to CharacterDevelopment that came too late. We finally learn the circumstances behind why she would be willing to stay in the background while Nagato and Yahiko were doing the badass stuff: she sees herself as the pillar supporting their dreams to peace - aside from being obviously already falling for Yahiko. That she finally learned how to stand and rationalize for herself in a hopeless last stand against the psychopathic BigBad amplifies the impact of what was supposedly a SatelliteCharacter's demise.

** Sasuke acknowledging the true measure of his friendship to Naruto and Team 7's resemblance to a family, and he defected not for selfish reasons, but because being around them drove him away out of pain for what he had once lost. When the anime touched upon this, it made this entire sequence worse, with a montage being included where there are frequent cuts to Naruto and Sasuke, only when it cuts to Naruto each time, more of his friends, allies and even the Tailed Beasts appear alongside him, while Sasuke remains by himself. By the time it shows everyone Naruto has become allies with up to now, Sasuke is stil alone and sees himself appearing right next to Naruto as a true comrade. This montage is the final moment that makes Sasuke suffer an '''enormous''' MyGodWhatHaveIDone regarding his actions, [[http://i.imgur.com/jf6bIjJ.gifv with his head tilt in shame being most memorable and heartrending.]]

*** Even then, Itachi's past itself was just nearly as messed up. Despite being a simple-yet-smart child, he tried to handle many tough decisions all by himself and didn't feel that anyone had the vision of peace that he did. Then when it came to trying to find a peaceful way out of the Uchiha Revolt, he had no choice but to massacre his clan in the end and be regarded as a fugitive all to protect his brother....the aforementioned tears Itachi sheds for both killing his father and mother just after their last words and when Sasuke first awakens his Sharingan drives that point home. Even up to now, Itachi realizes that everything he's done on that end via manipulating Sasuke was a huge mistake.

* During the same battle with Zabuza and Haku, mirroring the scene from their first fight, Kakashi attempts to strike through Zabuza with Lightning Cutter, but just like the first time, Haku gets in the way and is hit instead. Once again, Zabuza attempts to slice through Haku to get to Kakashi, and he leaps back along with Haku; but this time, Zabuza ''suceeds'', completely slicing through Haku.
* After meeting again Kakuzu, The Ino-Shika-Chou trio is stunned to see their master Asuma on the enemy side. Shikaku decides that it will be their task to deal with him. Shikaku's words ("I won't stand dor any complaining! This is war. And it's one that we have to win.") are harsh, but true. After all, they know Asuma best and, thus, can save a lot of lives.
