** In one of Lee's skits in Episode 35-B he suggests that Hinata gives Naruto a handmade scarf as a gift but Tenten dismisses the idea. [[RedStringOfFate A red scarf]] is one of the key events that actually [[spoiler:help begin their romantic relationship]] in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie''.

* HilariousInHindsight: The series has so many of these moments now that ''{{Naruto}}'' has ended that it's not a stretch to wonder if Kenji Taira was trying to subtly spoil it for the fanbase. The fact that he was an assistant to Kishimoto doesn't help either.
** In Episode 35-B everyone gets codenames at one point. Kiba and Akamaru get Mittens and Boots, which are clearly cat-related names. When Tenten points that out to them, Kiba says "We don't discriminate in our home."

** When the Narrator reveals Lee's most embarrassing secrets in Episode 33B, he mentions that the reason why Neji is a girl in a lot of Lee's skits is because Lee finds it to be cute. Make of that what you will.

* TearJerker: Chapter 33. It's more like a somewhat sad moment than a full-blown TearJerker, but due to some EasyAmnesia, the only thing that Sasuke and Itachi can recall is how they used to be good brothers before everything went to hell...and they promptly act like such. While hilarity still ensues, Lee notes that Sasuke and Itachi are genuinely having fun and Neji notes that maybe if things had been a little different, perhaps they could be like this all the time. Apparently even a gag manga like ''this'' couldn't make light about such a tragic backstory, as there's just a shot of Tenten, Neji and Lee quietly looking on at what could have been.

** Episode 25-A, when Team Guy notices that the middle character on Gaara's forehead has changed from “Love” to “Romance”. Lee deduces that the person who Gaara has a crush on is...Neji, the former falling for him while he was once again DraggedIntoDrag by Lee.

* IdiotPlot: Even for the sake of comedy taken into note, chapter 35's problem would have been easily resolved if Tsunade had just done a shadow clone jutsu so she could " be in two places at one time". And even if she wanted someone to take her place, as her "lesson" with Sakura shows, Tenten was probably the ''worst'' person she could have chose to replace her.

* LesYay: Tenten wins the "Mr. Leaf" contest despite being female. Even though Tsunade explains why (she protected Tsunade from the other contestants when they got a bit too HotBlooded), it's unavoidable. Tenten's HeroWorshipper tendencies regarding Tsunade don't help either.
** The ''Love Bugs'' drama in Episode 42-A, where Hinata plays a schoolgirl who has a romance with a boy that saves her from gangsters...and ''Tenten'' is the one who acts as the boy.

* OneSceneWonder: Mild example. "Male Tenten" shows up briefly in the second half of Episode 3, yet has a good amount of fan art and fanfiction.
* RelationshipWritingFumble: Between [[KissingCousins Neji and Hinata]] of all the characters, as it's clearly implied quite often that Neji has more than familial affection for Hinata.
** Although that was quite likely being intentionally PlayedForLaughs.
