!!This fanfic contains examples of:
* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: Naruto is immune to many poisons after he tried to eat several of them as a child to the point he drinks [[UpToEleven antifreeze]] as juice.
* TheAlcoholic: Sasuke, who usually drinks alone to get to sleep (thanks to [[spoiler:the abuse he suffered as a child, including being forced to drink]]); underage alcoholism is noted by Kakashi to be a problem amongst genin.
* AllAbusersAreMale: [[spoiler: Subversion - Sasuke's abusers were women, oneof whom was a serial child molestor.]]
* AlmightyJanitor: Naruto grew up, sorted out many of his affairs and eventually became Hokage [[spoiler:in Gaara's timeline]], but because he never received a prior promotion he had to retake the Chunin Exams. Many people had joked that Naruto was the new "Eternal Genin", or that one has to be Kage-level to become a Chunin.
* AlternateTimeline: Jiraiya, Tenzo, Kakashi, Naruto [[spoiler: and Gaara]] all come from different timelines with different Bad Ends. Invoked in the {{Omake}}, [[spoiler: when Kakashi finds out that Obito survived and he killed Rin in the new timeline, where Obito died for real in Kakashi's original timeline.]]

* AssShove: The Uzumaki were infamous for this in Water Country, for the time they shoved the Seven Swordmens of Mist's swords up their butts. According to Zabuza, his mentor ''still'' finds sword shards in his rectum... Tazuna thanks God that Naruto takes after his dad in that respect.
* TheAtoner: Kakashi, PlayedForLaughs, as he tries to make it up to Naruto for being a bad teacher, but gets misunderstood by everyone else.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: You know Naruto's {{Canon}} personality? That's when he's on ''medication''! As it turns out, his extremely high chakra levels (due to being both an Uzumaki and a jinchuuriki) apparently make him so uncontrollable that at ''age 2'', he needed to be kept in padded room until they found a way to give him his medication - without it, he not only can't live a normal life, he'd probably ''die at a young'' due to his body being unable to handle the constant tension and lack of sleep. Sasuke, Sakura, Zabuza, Haku and Tazuna's family all witness firsthand just how out-of-control a Naruto without his meds can get:
--> '''''Bright! Bright! Leaf! Bright! Tree! Bright! Oooh squirrel! Bright! Eeew spider! Bright! Pakkun! Pakkun! Pakkun! Kakashi-sensei! Huh, leash? Bright! Pretty bird! Owww! Acorns! Owww! Badger! Owww!'''''

* BreadEggsMilkSquick: To why Jiraiya wasn't taking care of Naruto
-->'''Naruto''': ''The reason I haven't been living with Ero-senin all along is because he's been away the last twelve years peeking into women's baths, writing perverted books, and keeping track of a child murdering freak.''
* ButterflyOfDoom: [[PeggySue Jiraiya, Naruto, Tenzo and Kakashi]] note the minor effects make major changes, like Kakashi giving Naruto a new outfit with his clan symbol on prominent display results in Kiri nin fleeing because they realize he's an ''[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Uzumaki]]''.
* CannibalClan: The Uchiha Clan eat their dead as funerary tradition.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Naruto finds out when he and Sasuke go out for drinks to celebrate a successful D-Rank that Sasuke is a melancholic drunk and [[LooseLips tends to reveal personal secrets]]. [[spoiler: Which is how Naruto finds out Sasuke was neglected and sexually abused by his caretakers post Uchiha Massacre.]]

* DeconstructionFic: of the PeggySue fic, but differently as the Peggy Sues all come from different outcomes in the future which create alternate timelines. Their efforts to change the future can cause [[GambitPileup problems as they can interfere with the other's plans]] and people notice that they are acting different from their usual character.
** [[spoiler: Gaara demonstrates that the PeggySue doesn't have to come from a BadFuture, or even ''mean'' to come in the first place!]]
* DeconReconSwitch: A lot of ContinuityDrift from {{Naruto}} is lampshaded and justified within story.
** Why Kakashi or Jiraiya didn't care for Naruto if they knew his parents? As Naruto said, Kakashi was only fourteen and Jiraiya is an irresponsible adult who can't take care of small children.
* DeliberateValuesDissonance: While the Uchiha eat their dead, talking about an Uchiha's funeral arrangements while said Uchiha is still alive is consider just as bad as eating them while they are still alive.
* DepartmentOfChildDisservices: Hiruzen found out what [[RapeAsDrama happened to Naruto]] wasn't an isolated incident, he cleans house trying to correct this
* DespairEventHorizon: Kakashi in his original timeline, Naruto in Tenzo's timeline [[spoiler: and Hinata in the current timeline.]]

* EarlyBirdCameo: Shin, Sai's older brother, gets a short scene where he's buying Sai a teddy bear.
* EasyEvangelism: Lampshaded by Tenzo in that many enemies of Naruto convert to his side and change their ways or die in repentance. Tenzo then locks Danzo and Naruto in a closet in hopes of [[InvokedTrope invoking it]]. Subverted as it had been tried six times before and Danzo would remain the same. Double Subverted as it turns out it does work on Danzo, but ROOT mindwipes him back to normal.
** Invoked by Naruto himself, when he decides to beat up Neji [[spoiler: for driving Hinata into nearly committing suicide.]]
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Well-Intentioned Extremists Has Standards]]: Koharu was horrified to learn of Sasuke's mistreatment and realized that Danzo might had a hand in it. [[spoiler: Koharu decided to confide in Hiruzen of her suspicions and rein Danzo in.]]
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Including Naruto, who actually ''knew'' that Hinata was stalking him. Her being [[ObliviousToLove in love with him, however..]]

* IAteWhat: Naruto, after being invited to a Uchiha funerary [[ImAHumanitarian feast]].
* ImAHumanitarian: The Uchiha clan. Naruto was invited to a Uchiha funeral after one of them tried to adopt him and make him part of the clan and offered some of the meat...
** Kakashi, Rin and Minato ate Obito, along with Obito's parents who wanted him to have the proper Uchiha funerary rites since Obito was disowned by the clan after giving Kakashi his eye. [[spoiler:But only in the timeline(s) where he actually ''did'' die.]]
* ICanExplain: Naruto fast-talks Hiashi [[spoiler: from forcing Gaara to marry Hinata by explaining that Gaara and Hinata were with him but to Gaara, having a chaperone meant something else]].
* InnocentInnuendo: In-Universe, when Konahamaru ask Sarutobi if go play tag with Naruto, Gaara, and Sakura.
--->Konohamaru:"Jiichan, can I go outside and play with Naruto?"
--->Sarutobi:"Why do you want to go and play with Naruto? It's three fifteen in the morning?"
--->Konohamaru:"He, Gaara, and Sakura are playing a game that looks really fun."
** Which leads to Hiruzen to drawing the wrong conclusion and thinks it's [[AThreesomeIsHot something]] ''[[DoubleEntendre else]]'' until Konohamaru thinks he being denied because Sakura is chasing Naruto and Gaara with live kunai.
* [[spoiler: InterruptedSuicide: Naruto stops Hinata and manages to talk her down.]]
* ItAmusedMe: Naruto didn't tell Kakashi, Jiraiya or Tenzo that he's also a time traveler because he works their plans with his and missed being treated like a kid.
* KidsAreCruel: Played with - Inari put a hole in the escaping mercenaries' boat knowing full well that they'd drown, but he felt bad about it when his mom tells him that was wrong. His mother simply punishes him with no dessert, knowing her son accidentally committed homicide but unable to ''not'' feel relieved by those men's deaths.
* LethalChef: Jiraiya, which is why Naruto learned how to cook.
* LethalJokeCharacter: The Uzumaki were a clan of these, known for their [[BlackComedy deadly and comedic]] techniques. They were infamous for their humiliating tactics.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Naruto tells Haku, Sakura and Sasuke that he's from five years in the future, but doesn't tell Tenzo, Kakashi or Jiraya that. The latter discover the other time travelers, but don't know of Naruto [[spoiler: until they have a planned meeting and Naruto reveals from what point in the future he's from.]]
* MistakenForPedophile: Kakashi and Jiraiya were seen as ''suspicious'' to Iruka. Then again, anyone would be suspicious when two adults shower gifts and attention to a boy they just met.
* MundaneUtility: Haku uses his senbon as knitting needles
* NailedToTheWagon: Kakashi made sure that no liquor store would sell alcohol to Sasuke as a way for Sasuke to go sober.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The Uzumaki to Kiri nin. Literally, Kiri has a Run-On-Sight order.
* NoodleIncident: The Iwa Incident for Gaara, all is known that Kankuro had to marry an Iwa nin.
* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: Why no one speaks bad of the Uchiha clan when they were otherwise hated and distrusted when they were alive. They chose not to remember that the Uchiha were suspected of causing the Kyuubi attack and remember an old and distinguished clan....and project it on to Sasuke.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Kakashi helped Jiraiya and Anko capture Orochimaru in the Forest of Death, but as a resulted he accidentally got Team 7 disqualified.
* NoMedicationForMe: Kakashi forgot to refill Naruto's prescription for Chakra-Induced Attention Deficiency Hyperactive Disorder, it ends badly.

* NotWhatItLooksLike: When Kakashi meets Naruto for the "first" time, he randomly gives him hugs, buys him sweets and helps him shop, among other things. Iruka comes to the mistaken conclusion that he's a paedophile.
* {{Omake}}: There is one in ch.31.
* OrwellianRetcon: The author had to later edit the earlier parts in order to comply with the new reveals of the manga.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Kakashi's being affectionate towards Naruto, repeatedly, is this to outsiders. As was his arriving to a meeting with Hiruzen early (which had actually slipped from is memory over the years - he'd come for unrelated reasons).
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Hiruzen almost had a ''heart attack'' when Kakashi came to a meeting an hour early.
** Temari and Kankuro ''freak'' when [[PeggySue Gaara]] suddenly acts nice.
* PaedoHunt: Mocked at first, but taken seriously when Naruto accidentally finds actual pedophiles and tells Iruka. Afterward, all genin were required to take a seminar on how to recognize sexual predators. Naruto was forced to explain why Kakashi and Jiraiya weren't pedophiles, just horribly misguided.
** A couple of parents called for the execution of the newly convicted pedophiles.
* PeggySue: Naruto, Kakashi, Jiraiya, Tenzo [[spoiler: and Gaara.]]
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Pretty much the story's strongest theme
* RantInducingSlight: Gai unintentionally accuses Naruto of being a possible traitor, Kakashi gets angry and goes off a rant demanding to know why people immediate blame Naruto for everything.
** Justified - Kakashi was proposing an IHaveThisFriend[=/=]WhatIf scenario to try and get advice on how he's supposed to feel about Sasuke (who has betrayed/will betray the village and Naruto); Gai mistakenly assumed he was referring to Naruto. After offending Kakashi, he started kicked himself for not noticing the parallels between Neji/Sasuke and Lee/Naruto.
* [[spoiler: RapeAsBackstory]]: Sasuke was [[spoiler:molested by his caretakers as a child. Naruto was nearly molested by an orphanage caretaker taking out his anger over the Kyuubi on him.]]
* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Sexual abuse of minors is a literal death sentence in Konoha.
* RealMenWearPink: Gaara likes to do macrame, design and make clothes and blankets for his siblings.
* ReallyGetsAround: The Second Hokage, Senju Tobirama, to the point his brother made a law trying to rein in his promusucity. Tobirama instead extended his tastes to outside Konoha. Many people in Suna, Iwa, Kiri, Wave and Kumo can claim him as their ancestor.
* RightForTheWrongReasons: Gai and Asuma believe Kakashi is so nice to Naruto because Kakashi feels guilty that Naruto almost got killed and framed by Mizuki. Kakashi was offered to adopt Naruto once and he has a precedent of having drastic personality changes when someone close to him dies.
* RunningGag: Water Country and the Uzumaki.
-->''All throughout his childhood his mother had told him that if he wasn't a good boy, an Uzumaki would get him. He'd never believed her, and had instead believed it when his friends had told him that the Uzumaki were all dead. His mother had been right all along. He hadn't been a good boy, and if that Uzumaki hadn't been kept on a leash he would have gotten him.''
* SarcasticConfession: Tenzo is quick to reveal he's from the future to his ANBU captain. The captain lets him go on medical leave.
* ScareEmStraight: Naruto [[InvokedTrope invokes this]] when he tells his classmates about Orochimaru's heinous crimes while Sasuke is in hearing distance.
* SecretKeeper: Naruto has Sasuke and Sakura, as well as Haku (who was listening in) and by extension Zabuza; later, Gaara joins in. The other three time travellers find out about each other's time-travel, but are aware neither than Naruto knows of it nor that he's also involved [[spoiler:until he finally tells them - leading to a SpitTake.]]
* SelectiveSquick: InUniverse, Sasuke was disgusted by his future self, not that he ate Orochimaru, that he ate Orochimaru ''alive''
* ShotgunWedding: Gaara was nearly forced to marry Hinata because Hiashi thought he was [[IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow "training"]] with Hinata without a chaperone. They were measuring Hinata for the wedding kimono (while she was ''unconscious'') before Naruto cleared things up.
* ShroudedInMyth: The Uzumaki are infamous outside of Konoha to the point that mothers used them as a boogeyman to scare their children into being good. Several characters thought Uzumaki were a myth until [[OhCrap they met Naruto]].
* TheSleepless: PlayedForLaughs, what bothers Gaara is not his inability to sleep, but the boredom of being awake in sleeping hours with nothing to do.
--> ''He had a feeling that what had freaked Kankuro and Temari out about his game of Orochiball so badly was the fact that he had been behaving somewhat "out of character" rather than the viciousness and brutality of his actions. This was a side of him that almost nobody ever saw because, they were usually asleep when it came out. During his youth, he'd had to fill his empty hours with something, and killing assassins only took a second or two...''
* TheStationsOfTheCanon: Played With, Kakashi considers holding Sasuke back from the Chunin Exams and wait until he's more mentally stable, but realizing if they do they lose their information advantage.
** Ultimately, justified while they want and do change certain outcomes, they mostly try to stick with previous events to not lose their advantage.
* TakeThat: To Sasuke's early ''Shippuden'' outfit, in Chapter 23:
--> ''It wasn't just the whole curse seal and attempted body takeover thing that he feared. While he was willing to wear the ridiculous tracksuit since it actually served a purpose, he'd seen a sketch of what Orochimaru had him wearing in three years, and...He suppressed a shudder as he pictured the open fronted shirt, and purple assbow that apparently matched the one belonging to Orochimaru. The fangirls were bad enough now. He could only imagine what they'd be like if he wandered around with his shirt half-off. They'd probably try to rape him in public or something.''
* TalkingDownTheSuicidal:[[spoiler: Naruto talks down Hinata after Neji performed his BreakThemByTalking, which was successful due to Naruto's absence from the exam.]]
* ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight: In Water Country, the Uzumaki are boogeymen used by mothers to their misbehaving children.
* TookALevelInKindness: Gaara, [[spoiler: who was the Godaime Kazekage who accidentally time traveled]]. PlayedForLaughs as everyone who personally knew him freaks out at sudden change in behavior.
* TricksterMentor: Sasuke asks Naruto to train him after seeing Naruto single-handedly take down an army with prank jutsu. Naruto accepts because he wants to distract Sasuke from revenge and get back at him.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: Sasuke's alcoholism as shinobi have to be at least 16 to be allowed drinking and he has been drinking since a very young age.
* WaxOnWaxOff: Sasuke realizes how much skill, speed and planning to pull off Naruto's pranks and get away from the ANBU...in a fluorescent pink jumpsuit. [[spoiler: Neji also becomes a believer....in a fluorescent yellow jumpsuit!]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Played for laughs with Temari's deathly fear of insects - she ends up facing ''Shino'' in the Chnin Exam Finals, and makes herself look completely worthless as opposed to the decent showing against Shikamaru in the normal timeline.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Played With, Tenzo knows that Naruto was pushed into releasing the Kyuubi and wouldn't do it otherwise. Kakashi and Naruto considered killing Sasuke, but realized they would have too many repercussions.
* YouWillBeSpared: Gatou's mercenaries thought Naruto was averting it when they discovered there was a hole in the boat he dumped them in. Turns out Naruto did intend to spare them, but ''Inari'' put a hole in their boat.
