[[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 (Beetle Chronicles) and Naruto (Fox Chronicles) prior to their meeting.

!!Tropes found in this fanfiction:
* AdaptationalBadAss: Iruka and Asuma being the main cases.
* BadAss: Might Gai is this, and a BareFistedMonk BadassTeacher. [[spoiler: He deals the most damage to Naruto overall in the Battle of Old Uzushio.]] Naruto even calls him the monster of Konoha.
* BigDamnHeroes: The Author loves throwing these in.
* BerserkButton: Calling Naruto the Kyuubi.
* BreakTheCutie: Hinata was mentally bullied until she could no longer see Naruto as anything but the Kyuubi.
** Above does not convey the extent. She is to Naruto what '''canon Sasuke was to Itachi'''. It is '''that''' bad.
* BrutalHonesty: Shino pointing out how Fuu could've led to Naruto being killed by Akatsuki or Orochimaru. Dark Naruto doesn't hold back either.
* 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.
* CoolOldGuy / LovableSexManiac: Jiraiya (Pervy Sage) and Hyoudou (Pervy Master)
* ClingyJealousGirl: [[spoiler: Dark Fuu makes Fuu out to be this.]]
** MurderTheHypotenuse : [[spoiler: She suggests doing this to Kanna]]
* CrapsackWorld: Pointed out, numerous times.
* CurbStompBattle: The Battle of Old Uzushio. [[spoiler: Once Orochimaru and Akatsuki showed up, there was no chance in hell for Naruto to win.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Shino, even while giving a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Fuu.
* {{Determinator}}: Naruto fought desperately and stood up when it would be easier to quit, but [[spoiler: he still got captured and taken back to Konoha.]]
* DoggedNiceGuy: Kiba, ironically, to Hinata.
* DoubleEntendre: A lot in the earlier battles involving Fuu and Akatsuki.
* {{Expy}}: [[HighSchoolDxD Hyoudou Issei]] is Naruto's kenjutsu teacher
* FriendlyEnemy: Naruto and [[spoiler: Sasuke, during their first rematch. He honestly forgives Sasuke for the assassination technique through the chest and he really just wanted to be left alone.. Sasuke honestly feels bad, but he's loyal to the Sannin.]]
* FriendToBugs: Shino and Fuu.
* GetOut: Gaara's follow up to his ReasonYouSuckSpeech to Kakashi.
* HannibalLecture: Dark Naruto excels at this, and best of all, never lied. [[spoiler: Dark Fuu]] is attempting this currently.
** Orochimaru tried to give one to Jiraiya. [[ShutUpHannibal He cut his tongue off and hit him with a Rasengan]].
* InSpiteOfANail: [[spoiler: Orochimaru still gets sealed by Itachi.]]
* ItIsBeyondSaving: Dark Naruto's take on the world crafted by the Sage of Six Paths.
* MyGreatestFailure: Hyoudou ran away and left Mifune to confront Hanzo alone, despite being older.
* OldMaster: If they're old and a shinobi, monk, or samurai, ass will be kicked.
* 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.
* ReasonYouSuckSpeech: A beautiful one by Gaara to Kakashi.
* SealedEvilInACan: Hidan and [[spoiler: Orochimaru.]]
* ShootTheShaggyDog: Naruto's [[spoiler: Fight and Capture by Konoha ended with his new village burning down.]]

[[spoiler: She sent The remaining Konoha 12, Yamato, Asuma, Gai, Kakashi, Jiraiya, Iruka, Shizune, and then she showed up as he went into a partial transformation.]] He never stood a chance.
* SteppingStonesInTheSky: Gai, using Ningame similar to canon.
* SwordBeam: Naruto, Asuma, and other Samurai.
* TookALevelInJerkAss: Several characters towards Naruto, most for stupid reasons...[[BreakTheCutie Except Hinata]].
* UnstoppableRage: [[spoiler: Hinata nearly kills Fuu in an attempt to get rid of Naruto while they were planning a retreat and he goes to Six-Tails. Unfortunately, [[SubvertedTrope even going to eight didn't help because of the war on three fronts]] and he was defeated.]]
