Beginning with pulling out very large meteors out of thin air, summons a Susanoo '''without eyes''' and ending extracted the Bijuu in mere minutes despite earlier it had 9 members of Akatsuki and 3 days to complete, and being able to terminate the contract with user Edo Tensei despite the fact that even original creator jutsu does not know how to do it.

** Itachi's true reasons for killing the entire Uchiha clan ([[spoiler:they were planning a coup and Itachi was ordered to kill them all by Danzo]]).
** Hanzô [[spoiler:giving Mifune the antidote to his poison at the conclusion of their battle, because from their initially diametric philosophies they seemed to reach some sort of mutual understanding during the course of the battle by a process nobody was able to follow]].
** In chapter 562, it's revealed that three minor characters know the [[TeleportSpam Hiraishin no Jutsu]], a secret technique of the Fourth Hokage that he never taught to anyone else, even his own students or teacher.
** Itachi Uchiha suddenly having [[spoiler: Izanami just so he could defeat Kabuto with it.]]
** [[spoiler: Madara apparently being able to Edo Tensei summon himself to counteract Kabuto releasing the jutsu.]]

*** Sasuke has many asspulls attached to him, ranging from random allies suddenly gaining healing powers, to random hawk summons. The author is {{lampshad|eHanging}}ing this practice when it comes to Sasuke's [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands new moves]]. Even know-it-all TheManBehindTheMan Obito is left wondering when he had time to acquire the summoning contract.

** Itachi Uchiha suddenly having [[spoiler: uses Izanami. Izanami just so he could defeat is only useful against Izanagi users and Kabuto with it.]]
or those like him, whom the user happened to be fighting at that moment. The fact that Izanami was (in-universe) created solely for a very specialized purpose (countering the extremely rare Izanagi) yet turned out to also be the perfect counter to a completely different threat seals the deal.

*** Madara is either seen as a complex WellIntentionedExtremist and the embodiment of EvilIsCool who managed to become one of the heroes greatest threats, or a boring InvincibleVillain who made all the other villains look like imbeciles and broke too many rules of established canon.

* FoeYay: Gaara was a bit too obsessed with Sasuke before their fight at the Chuunin exam, basically stalking him while he was training, and calling him his "prey". Madara taking the trouble to come and see Naruto in the latter's hotel room ''just to chat'' can also be seen this way. Mind you, it seems he watched Naruto sleeping for a while, and he didn't even ''try'' to capture him!
* FranchiseOriginalSin: Even in early episodes you could already see that Sasuke was going to be really important and tips about how the Uchiha clan's MythArc is key were dropped. Then Sasuke became ''really'' important, and the Uchiha clan's MythArc swallowed the plot.

** Itach Uchiha, the man who murdered his entire clan, joined the evil organization the Akatsuki, and MindRaped his little brother twice turns out to be [[spoiler:a loving brother and under orders from his village the entire time.]]

** Danzo. So many questions surround him: Why he was after the Kyuubi, how he got the sharingans, what role he exactly played in the Uchiha massacre, the extent of his involvement with Madara and Orochimaru; not to mention his rise to power as acting Sixth Hokage and his ideology being the opposite of Naruto's-- all this could've made for an interesting plot. Instead he is sacrificed to hype up Sasuke's new powers before any of this gets resolved.

** You know those amusing scenes that painted Tobi as a complete goofball? [[spoiler:Rewatch those with the knowledge that he's an evil, creepy old man and try not to be a little disturbed]]. It's worse when you look at the databooks and realize that person he's being all HoYay with, Deidara, is only ''19 years old''. DirtyOldMan much? Alternatively, it's HilariousInHindsight, because he's apparently [[spoiler:just screwing with people for the hell of it]].

*** Of course, it's less of an IdiotPlot than EarlyInstallmentWeirdness once you realise that, pre-time skip, ''Jinchuuriki didn't exist'' in the story, and Naruto certainly wasn't one. The original concept of Naruto was a living prison for an unkillable demon, not a living weapon. He wasn't ''supposed'' to be able to manifest any dangerous powers as a result of the Kyuubi being sealed inside him, let along that being ''what he should be doing.''

* FriendlyFandoms: With ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia.'' One thing helping it is that the manga started around the same time ''Naruto's'' ended, leading to some looking to it as something to fill the void. Another thing helping it is that Kohei Horikoshi was a fan of ''Naruto'' and named it as one of his inspirations.

** It also has one with ''Manga/HunterXHunter,'' with some fans even accusing it of ripping it off. Ironic, considering Kishimoto and Yoshihiro Togashi are friends in real life.

** Toyed with regarding one particular character who seems to constantly teeter on the edge of it. He'll successfully commit his final, irreversible act of abhorrent villainy any second... aaaannny second now... Some argue that it's the thought that counts, and he has already crossed it.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: While the anime is moderately popular in Japan, it's even bigger in America and Europe (and the manga is ''comparatively'' more popular, though as with all manga sales they are much lower in foreign markets).

** One aspiring BigBad [[spoiler: Tobi, aka Obito Uchiha]] held a newborn baby under the threat of death at the ripe old age of one minute. That's not very nice. And add the fact that the boy is his [[spoiler: senseri's.]]
