'''Instead:''' Nagato's dad is so paranoid about shinobi in general during the war that he takes leave of his senses: he pulls a LeeroyJenkins and bum rushes one of the shinobi, not even so much as speaking to them to make them ease their guard. In fact, he screams angrily. Yeah, like ''that's'' gonna make you look harmless and civilian.\\
'''Result:''' The Leaf shinobi he attacks easily outmaneuvers and slays Nagato's dad, thinking he's an enemy. Then, Nagato's mom is immediately mistaken for a subordinate/partner and slain shielding her son, who neither shinobi could see in the dark. Nagato is orphanized and set onto the spiraling path of becoming a jaded antagonistic figure who will ultimately die himself because he let being a victim define his life. Neither father nor mother nor son knew well enough to play nice and more tolerant and accepting of things and cool-headed when death was on the line. Nope, they just jumped to conclusions, and as such, got their tickets punched prematurely.

The mother says and does nothing to stop him; in fact, had the mother taken the lead and been the one to do the above, in an earnest and maternal voice of protection, the Leaf Shinobi might have been even more inclined and convinced to sympathize and lower their guards and be friendly.\\

* The deaths of Nagato's parents themselves are very stupid and senseless. Two Leaf shinobi enter their house unannounced looking for essentials and Nagato's dad picks up a weapon to defend himself. The lights are off and no one can see clearly.
'''You'd Expect:''' Nagato's dad to turn the lights on and tell the shinobi that they have actually not entered an abandoned house but instead entered an occupied house filled with civilians and that he is a dad with a wife and young son and mean them no harm and will provide them food and shelter if they need it and he is willing to peacefully let them be.

'''You'd Expect:''' Nagato's dad to cautiously turn the lights on or yell something like "Help us, please!" that is definitely not hostile and conducive to a more peaceful and inviting and approachable reaction and tell the shinobi that they have actually not entered an abandoned house but instead entered an occupied house filled with civilians and that he is a dad with a wife and young son and mean them no harm and will provide them food and shelter if they need it and he is willing to peacefully let them be.

'''Instead:''' Madara decides that the peace between Uchiha and Senju impossible, then makes a nonsensical warning to his clan to leave the village (which they understandably reject) and later the dedicated all his time to studying the Uchiha stone tablet leading to the following one.

* Tobi can teleport wherever he wants on a whim without anyone having any way of actually knowing he's done so until he's there, and them similarly having no actual way of stopping him.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Tobi to appear whenever Naruto leaves the village, ever, and/or is either alone or with only a few people who aren't expecting immediate danger, and try and capture him and replace him with a Zetsu. Hell, Naruto's childhood would have been a perfect time to try it (remember, Naruto was alone most of his life, Iruka and others acknowledging him is a major part of his story arc). Then he can either extract the Kyuubi to use as a weapon, or hold him until the Kyuubi is necessary. Granted, he might not have known what happened to the Kyuubi after his last intrusion into Konoha, but he could have easily infiltrated the village and kept his ears out for any information on the fox.\\
'''Instead:''' Tobi just leaves Naruto alone for 13 years instead of actually trying to capture him. Then sends Itachi and Kisame to try once, then ignores him for 3+ years, particularly while he's out in the world with only Jiraiya to protect him.\\
'''Addendum:''' Obviously this applies to the other 8 Jinchuriki as well, making Akatsuki ultimately totally superfluous in nearly every possible way, aside from unsealing the tailed beasts.

'''Instead:''' [[TooDumbToLive He uses the uber-move]]. To make matters worse, his opponent, Dosu, is unaffected, thanks to Zaku's intervention. Ultimately, Lee's actions become a [[StupidSacrifice stupid sacrifice]].
** In his defense, though, he wasn't fully aware of Zaku's abilities and might not have been able to predict that.

In her defense, As Madara later revealed, Rin didn't really have a choice, as she was being controlled by Madara. Same goes for her pursuers.

In Kurama's defense here, it is stated that dying is still, y'know, painful. Even for a Tailed Beast. And it did turn out well in the end.
