[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7934398/1/Naruto_Wind_Monk_Banishment Naruto Wind Monk Banishment]] is a Naruto fanfiction by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/3452516/Born_of_Prayers Born Of Prayers]]. Naruto is banished from Konoha by Tsunade in an attempt to secretly hand him over to Jiraiya for 3 years of training while winning some political ground to deal with the council.

Unfortunately, she gets drunk and approved some clauses that essentially screw Naruto over, including removing his ability to use hand seals and canceling his contract with the Toads. By the time Jiraiya and Tsunade find out, he's already gone, never to be seen again until 4 years later, escorting the Wind Daimyo, Kanna.

From there, Akatsuki begins to make their move.

Unique in that it takes a realistic look at what actually could have led to Naruto's banishment in the aftermath of the successful Sasuke Retrieval Mission, rather than just writing it off to the entire village irrationally hating Naruto (A line that ''far'' too many fics seem to follow), and in that no characters are bashed. Even Sasuke, who is usually portrayed as some sort of {{Jerkass}} in the "banishment" fic genre actually is a pretty good guy in the story. It is also one of the few stories starring Fu.

The story has been split into three different ones, with the main series being joined by two side-series that recounts the past of Fuu ([[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10266254/1/Naruto-Wind-Monk-Banishment-Beetle-Chronicles Beetle Chronicles]]) and Naruto ([[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10266223/1/Naruto-Wind-Monk-Banishment-Fox-Chronicles Fox Chronicles]]) prior to their meeting.

* ChildhoodFriends: ''Beetle Chronicles'' reveals that Fuu and Shibuki are this to one another, due to her being the Jinchuuriki and him being the Village Leader's son at the time. They were close until an incident led to her staying out of the village, but the feelings never once wavered.
* ChildSoldiers: Cool jutsu is nice and all, until you remember the fact that they are meant to be used during war, where even 8 year olds have fought in.

* TheMagicGoesAway: [[spoiler:Naruto's goal post-merging with Dark Naruto is to sever the ability to link physical energy with spiritual energy to stop shinobi from abusing the Sage of the Six Path's gift. He's essentially ridding them of the ability to use Chakra entirely.]]

* OneManArmy: Itachi, sick and dying, managed to take out ROOT and Danzo before doing battle with Tobi.
* OnlyFriend: Shibuki was this to Fuu when she was a child. She states to herself the only reason she didn't run away from the village and let Grass burn it down was because of him.
* PragmaticVillainy: The smarter Akatsuki members practice this. It's the reason Naruto hates it when the smart ones get away.
** Kakuzu and Sasori both attacked when they saw an opening, and retreated when things turned against their favor. Because of this, Akatsuki gained information against Naruto.
** Itachi waited until Orochimaru ScaledUp and then attacked him from the back while he was focused on other things. Pain called out Tobi on using the Box of Ultimate Bliss because having berserk men in their ranks was not pragmatic towards peace.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Jiraiya, Tsunade, and Kakashi ''attempt'' this.
