''Manga/{{Naruto}} The Abridged Series'' is another of the myriad Abridged Series on the internet, this one done by two guys named [=MasakoX=] and [=Vegeta3986=].

It rather heavily riffs on all the FridgeLogic the series provides (e.g. "Why does Naruto wear ''orange''?).

Episodes are found at both [=YouTube=] and [=DailyMotion=], though the original account for the former is suspended. They also [[http://www.myspace.com/narutoabridged have a [=MySpace=] page]]. As of September 3rd, 2011, the series has 31 episodes. A movie is also supposedly complete, with Part 1 up. Not to be mistaken for ''WebVideo/NarutoTheAbridgedComedyFandubSpoofSeriesShow''.

On June 20, 2011, [=MasakoX=] told his fans in a video that he would no longer be working on ''Naruto Abridged'', due to work-related reasons. Seeing as [=Vegeta3986=] left Creator/TeamFourStar around the same time, [[EpilepticTrees the theories for the creators' split are flying thick and heavy]], though both insist it was amicable.

However, on September 3rd, 2011, Vegeta has posted episode 31 of NTAS, with a new addition, [=ZeroMaster=] serving as the show's editor. On August 2013, [=ZeroMaster=] stated that he and Vegeta are going to continue the series along with a brand new cast.

But then earlier that month, Creator/MasakoX announced he was making his own revival of NTAS called Naruto: The Rebridged Series, now co-starring Nullmetal Alchemist's (and also Team Four Star member) Faulerro, beginning with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nlifRkY--Y another episode 31]].

!! This abridged series provides examples of:

* TheAbridgedSeries (of course)
** ''WebVideo/NarutoTheAbridgedComedyFandubSpoofSeriesShow'' is an abridged series of the abridged series.
* AFateWorseThanDeath: The Filler Arcs.
* AscendedExtra: Iruka
* {{Beat}}:
-->'''Third Hokage:''' Ooh, ooh, [[NeverSayThatAgain Abbott and Costello]]?
-->'''Orochimaru:''' ''(sarcastically)'' Yes Hokage, I resurrected [[WhosOnFirst Abbott and Costello]] to kill you.
* BerserkButton: '''Do not''' eat a Klondike bar in front of Sasuke.
* BiTheWay: Kakashi's retelling of his, Asuma's and Kurenai's encounter with the Akatsuki makes it sound like he fantasizes about the other two.
* BigNever: When Kabuto asks Orochimaru to turn down his music.
* {{Big No}}: Several but the best so far is probably this gem.
--->'''Naruto''' (Helping Sasuke up after getting his butt kicked by Itachi); Oh hey look like they left you something.
--->'''Sasuke''': Really? (See The Log and a half eaten Klondike Bar): NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
** There's also the one Kakashi gives when Gai challenges him to a contest of Who Can Get The Most Naked. [[spoiler:Gai wins.]]
** This is the glorious reaction of Team 7 when Kakashi informs them that they've entered "the wonderful world of [[AFateWorseThanDeath filler]]".
* BittersweetEnding: In episode 27, they defeat the villain, but lose the race.
* BookEnds: Episode 25 has Naruto, before the opening theme and before the stinger, saying "''[[CurseCutShort Son of a]]''-"
* {{Bowdlerization}}: "Nope! Not today, fangirls! You know who you are!"
* BrainBleach: Gaara needs some mind soap after this line:
--->'''Gai''': That's right Lee, shake ya goods!.
** Everyone's reaction to the naked pictures of Gai. As shown in Episode 14.
---> '''Naruto''': Jesus Christ, somebody gouge out my eyes!
* BrickJoke: Sasuke tells us in Episode Three or so that he wants to kill his brother because Itachi took the last Klondike bar. Twenty-some episodes later...
** It happened ''twice'' with a RedShirt character: Shigure, a one shot character Gaara killed during the Chunin Exams, is referred to the episode after his death (he was working for charity), and again in episode 26 for mocking his use of an umbrella.
* ButtMonkey: Sakura. Oh god, Sakura
** They've implied that they'll start treating her better once they hit Shippuden, given that she becomes competent in the real series at that point.
*** Shippa-who?
** And let's not forget the series itself is a butt monkey of the series it drew from, being ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''.
* CanadaEh: Rock Lee is depicted as a Canadian, claiming to represent Maple Syrup, Hockey, and the Mounties.
* CatchPhrase: So many:
** Naruto's "Believe it!" is cranked up to such levels ''he's'' annoyed by it.
** Everyone else but Iruka's "Ah, touche".
** Boom chicka chicka chicka Gaara....of the funk!
*** Which is later parodied(yes, a parody parodied ''itself''!):
-->'''Naruto:''' We finally found you, Gaara...of the fu-
-->'''Temari''': NO! NOBODY'S in the mood right now!
-->'''Naruto''': .....funk. (Boom chicka chicka chicka Naruto's a douche!)
** Heh, heh... moo.
** Ninja Info Cards
* CharacterExaggeration: In proud Abridged Series tradition, everyone gets either this or AlternateCharacterInterpretation.
** If you're up on the manga, [[spoiler:Itachi]] manages to be ''both at once''.
* ChargeIntoCombatCut: In Episode Nine, Sasuke gets cut off in this manner twice before going into a fit of profanity and later refusing to do the scene.
** Double subverted in episode 31.
--> '''Sakon:''' ''"I hope they don't cut off our figh-"''
--> '''Kiba:''' ''"Dude, what did you stop for?"''
--> '''Sakon:''' ''"Oh, sorry, I thought they were going to cut off-"''
--> ''(scene switches to Naruto vs. Kimimaro)''
* ClusterFBomb: Gamabunta.
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: "SASUKE'S BEEN KIDNAPPED!"
* ConfusingMultipleNegatives: "Were you never not a non-ninja?"
* ConsolationBackfire:
** In episode 11, after being put down by Kakashi, Sakura comments, "At least I still have my fans." Sasuke immediately interjects [[TakeThat "What fans?"]]
** In episode 13, after being ignored by all the other characters, Kabuto consoles himself with, "At least Orochimaru still loves me." Cut to Orochimaru saying, "You're creepy, go away."
* CookingDuel: Three words: DDR Dance-Off.
** Recently, it has been revealed that Temari has ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' powers.
** Kankuro also has funk powers, but got slammed before he could reveal them.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Instead of a stabbing, Itachi uses the Tsukiyomi to make Kakashi go through 72 hours of [[spoiler:[[MemeticMutation Caramelldansen]]]].
** Haku makes "Mickey Mouse" and his lackeys listen to the 4Kids' dub of One Piece when the former tries to "touch Zabuza's face for no reason."
** Naruto stops Gaara from killing Rock Lee by ''dancing''.
* CurseCutShort: After they lose the race (See BittersweetEnding), Naruto ends the episode with "Ah '''FFFU'''--"
* CutAndPasteTranslation: Vegeta3986 did NOT like Kiba's defeat in the Chunin Exam arc against Naruto and edited the scene so that Kiba lost but with some degree of dignity.
** Another point would be their re-editing of the Baki/[[EnsembleDarkhorse Hayate]] fight. In this series, Hayate kills Baki with the "Death From Above!" attack and Baki dies from the infections. In the real series, its reversed. Baki kills Hayate, in other words.
* DanceBattler: Gaara
** Rock Lee puts up a decent fight.
* DeadpanSnarker: Kakashi and Sasuke (and pretty much everyone else, at least once).
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Parodied with MortalKombat when Naruto defeated Gaara.
--> '''Voice Over:''' Flawless Victory! Friendship!
--> '''Naruto''': [=*Pissed off*=] God'''dammit!'''
* DevilInPlainSight: "*Evil laughing for half a minute* Do you have... ''evil'' tea?"
** As a matter of fact, yes, yes they do.
*** Excellent! *More evil laughter*
* TheDitz: Naruto has his moments of these; in episode 26, he thought Idate was Franchise/{{Batman}} until he slipped and fell... then he thought he was SonicTheHedgehog.
* DramaticPause: Orochimaru tries to employ this, to no avail, as his dramatic reveal was kinda irrelevant.
* TheDriver: Rower.
* FaceHeelTurn: Sasuke in episode 28. The first thing he asks for after becoming a villain?
--> "Get me a goddamn [[RunningGag Klondike bar]]."
* FastForwardGag: Kakashi uses a remote to fast forward over the Wave Country {{filler}}, but ends up breaking it right before the opening.
* {{Filler}}: "Sasuke, I've got three words for you: Curry Of Life!"
** Don't forget:
--> '''Kakashi:''' Welcome to the wonderful world of filler.
--> '''Everyone else:''' [[BigNo NO!]]
** As of episode 26, there's a small label titled "The Filler Chronicles" [[note]]Now with 60% less Neji[[/note]] to lampshade this.
** During Sasuke and Naruto's fight in 28, Sasuke says that he'll kick Naruto to the filler episodes. When he does kick Naruto, he literally kicks Naruto into the Curry of Life arc for about a minute.
* FillerVillain: The guys Naruto's team fought before Orochimaru during the second round of the Chunin Exams return. Vegeta isn't pleased...
--> '''Vegeta3986''': Really? ''Really''?! The villains of this arc are the ''Map Quest'' ninjas? That is the '''''best''' they could come up with!?!''
--> '''[=MasakoX=]''': Hold on, Vegeta. In a later arc, they bring back ''Mizuki''.
--> '''Vegeta3986''': (Frustrated groan) I hate filler arcs.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: After Naruto's stupidity gets to him one too many times by the Tea Country arc, Sasuke drops this line: "Know what? Screw it. After this arc, I'm ''gone''." He also mentions he'll be leaving again the next episode.
* ForgottenFallenFriend: Not so much forgotten, but after Tsunade becomes Hokage, Sarutobi isn't missed ... Well, except by Naruto and Konohamaru.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Naruto is actually visible from ''miles'' away.
* HypocriticalHumor Episode 11:
-->'''Vegeta3986''': "Me? Well, I'm Temari. I'm Vegeta3986's girlfriend and..."\\
'''Masako X''': "Vegeta, What the hell are you doing?!"\\
'''Vegeta3986''': "Shut up, and just go along with it!"\\
'''Masako X''': "Dude, you can't do that!"\\
'''Vegeta3986''': "Oh, come on!"\\
'''Masako X''': "Gimme that mic..." ''[Sounds of fighting]'' "God, you're acting like a kid. Now where were we?" ''[in Hinata's voice]'' "Sorry Naruto, but I'm going out with Masako X."\\
'''Vegeta3986''': "What the ***?!!! You goddamn hypocrite! Gimme that mic back!" ''[Sounds of fighting]'' "Now where were we? Oh yeah..."\\
''(As Temari)'' "My Name's Temari, and I'm Vegeta3986's Girlfriend. He's Awesome."
* IDoNotOwn: "[=NarutoisthepropertyofMasashiKishimotoandTVTokyo=]. Thismovieisaparodyandnothingmore. Sopleasesupporttheofficialrelease. Gotit? Youdamnwellbetterbynow. Beendoingthisforthreeyears."
* ImprobableAge: Discussed
--> '''Naruto''': Hey, old guy!
--> '''Old Guy''': You bunch of--! What constitutes as ''old'' to you people?
--> '''Naruto''': Eh, in this show, anyone over 18.
* InformedAbility: Parodied in episode 26, after Sakura suddenly lifted the mast of a ship with her bare hands.
--> '''Naruto''': [{{Angrish}} stutter] Since when could you ''do'' that!?
--> [[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: [[color:pink: (Sakura's been training with Tsunade.) ]]
--> '''Naruto''': What the!? Are you telling me we just throw lines on top of the screen and people will buy it!? Why the hell didn't anybody tell me this sooner?!
--> [[/folder]]

[[folder: [[color:orange: (Since the Hokage's death, Naruto has learnt the ability to summon hamburgers.) ]]
--> '''Naruto''': Oh boy!!! [eats a hamburger]
--> '''Sasuke''': Hey, let me try that.
--> [[/folder]]

[[folder: [[color:blue: (Sasuke has learnt the ability to defeat the log and his brother... [Short Beat] [[Subverted Trope Yeah, no. ]]
--> '''Sasuke''': [[YankTheDogsChain Damn it!!]]
* IntercontinuityCrossover: After dying, the Third Hokage ends up in a better place... [[spoiler: with [[WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged King Yemma. Mahogany.]]]]
** The Sound Ninjas are only stopped by The Neighborhood Watch Committee of ''WebVideo/YuYuHakushoAbridged''.
* TheLoad: Everyone, ''especially'' Sakura.
* LarynxDissonance: Masako's female voices (Hinata, Ino) are surprisingly convincing, while Vegeta's (Sakura, Temari)... Aren't.
* [[ManOfAThousandVoices Men Of A Thousand Voices]]
* [[{{Meganeko}} Mega Chicken]]: Clucky in episode 18:
--> '''Jiraya''': Holy sh** itsagiantchicken!
** And again in episode 24:
---> '''Clucky''': Cock-a-mother-f***in'-do!
* MrExposition: Lampshaded: everyone who does it is either incompetent at it or is just doing it to pad for time.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: From the movie trailer: "Three heroes... And Sakura."
* NeverSayThatAgain: "Believe it!"
** And hookers.
* NinjaLog: [[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow What clomps down stairs, alone or in pairs, and crushes the neighbors' dog]]? Sasuke's greatest rival- The Log.
** It's lo~og, lo~og, It's big, it's heavy, it's wood; It's lo~og, lo~og
** It's better than bad, it's good.
** Shut up, Log-Boy.
** [grumbles]
* NoFourthWall
* NoSwastikas: "Dude. It's an 'x'."
* NotQuiteDead: Parodied:
-->'''Tsunade''': Very well. I'll be your Hokage. I'll do it for the memory of my brother and boyfriend.
-->'''Dan ''(in the background)''''': WE'RE STILL ALIVE, YOU CRAZY BITCH!
-->'''Tsunade''': I'll miss you two.
-->'''Dan ''(in the background)''''': GODDAMMIT!
* OfficialCouple: Apparently Kakashi and Anko.
* OnceUponATime: "...There were magic balls. And now there's a race!"
* OnlySaneMan: Probably Kakashi, but that's debatable.
** "Heh, heh...moo."
*** That's actually been explained. [[spoiler: Turns out they make Makeout Paradise on tape.]]
** By the later episodes, the series really doesn't have one at all. They're ''all'' totally nuts.
* OrphanedSeries: After the fallout between Masako and Vegeta.
* PaperThinDisguise: "Hey guys! It's me, Nay-roo-toe!"
** Given a CallBack in episode 30.
* PolitenessJudo: In episode 14, several ninjas arrive to ambush Naruto's group in the forest. However, the enemy ninjas proceed to argue amongst themselves about matters regarding tropes in anime, and a desperate Naruto simply asks if he can take their scroll (which would allow them passage to the next part of the Chunin exams). The distracted ninjas give them the scrolls without a second thought, and continue arguing with each other.
* PragmaticVillainy: Orochimaru brings Tsunade's dead brother and boyfriend back to life just to ensure she'll treat his soul-damaged arms. Too bad for him she doesn't buy it and beats them both up.
* RageAgainstTheAuthor: The Baki Appreciation Society, Gaara after the Shigure tribute
* RamblingOldManMonologue: ''Weaponized'' by the Third Hokage, in his fight against Orochimaru. "Old Man Monologue Jutsu!"
* RelaxOVision: Subverted. On a couple of occasions, an extremely graphic scene is replaced by soothing landscapes and music, though we can still hear the screams of pain and sickening crunching noises.
* RunningGag: Several, including:
** Sasuke's ongoing rivalry with [[/folder]]

[[folder: The Log ]]
** People stealing Iruka's catchphrase ("Ah, touche!"), followed by his expressing annoyance.
*** By Episode 17, he's given up on the "expressing annoyance" part, and just leaves whenever someone says it.
** Kakashi's fascination with a milk carton ("Heh, heh. Moo.").
** Orochimaru's utter inability to fool anyone with his disguises.
** Everyone telling Kankuro to shut up.
** A discontinued one would be Naruto's One Foot Tall Brick Wall to counter Sasuke's log. Clucky, Naruto's pet chicken from the comment special, however, is still around.
** A relatively short-termed running gag was the Rower's incessant singing... And how awful it was...
*** Which is actually refferenced in LittleKuriboh's Naruto parody, with Naruto being the rower's biggest fan... Except here, the rower doesn't know what the hell Naruto is talking about.
* SchizoTech: Lampshaded, and the source of the quote on the article.
* ShesAManInJapan: Haku is female in this version, despite being canonically a very effeminate boy in the series itself.
* ShoutOut: To ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', naturally. LittleKuriboh actually guest-starred in a couple of episodes.
** One to ''WebVideo/YuYuHakushoAbridged'' is made during the Forest of Death when a certain someone in a truck reveals the location of the Sound ninjas. "Damn you, Neighborhood Watch Committee!"
** "Note to self: Naruto's getting a Manga/DeathNote."
** The computer gives some names to abridged creators, like {{Lanipator}}.
** Also later in Episode 29
--> Naruto: C'mon, it'll be an adventure!
--> Kiba: An [[Film/BillAndTed Excellent Adventure?]]
--> Naruto: Yuuppp!
--> Kiba: Excellent! *air guitar*
* SimpletonVoice: Kisame's voice is a reference to {{Jabberjaw}}, and he's [[CloudCuckoolander just as bright]].
* SuddenlyFluentInGibberish: Naruto's group come face to face with Zabuza... Except they initially can't understand a word he says because of his face mask. Cue Kakashi revealing he can speak muffle.
* SureLetsGoWithThat:
** Orochimaru to Sasuke:
--> '''Orochimaru''': Oh, what a wit you have! But now it's time to come with me, Sasuke! I need you.\\
'''Sasuke''': For my power?\\
'''Orochimaru''': Uh, yeah...sure....
** Naruto to Tsunade in episode 24
--> '''Tsunade''': "Where are they [Orochimaru and Kabuto]?"
--> '''Naruto''': "I beat em!"
--> '''Tsunade''': With the Rasengan?
--> '''Naruto''': "Uh... Yeah! (Stammering) With... the... Ra... sen... gan."
* TakeThat: So, so many. There's Sasuke's opponent during the Chunin Exams, Yoroi, aka [=AnimeFlagger123=], who "keeps flagging anime videos on [=YouTube=]". Also, in episode 20, some people lambast Gaara for copying [=LittleKuriboh=].
-->''"You're copying him! He said "the" in one episode and so did you! Quit copying him!"''
** And then there's when Shino mocked Zaku's [[SamRiegel voice actor]] for lacking range.
** "First rule of Naruto: you let the person finish their long monologue no matter how many flashbacks or conversations they have with themselves."
* TemptingFate: Subverted when the giant snake destroyed the guard tower ''next'' to Bob and Mike.
** Played straight with Zaku announcing nobody could save Sakura, "not even that pussy, Sasuke!", cut to Sasuke "You were saying?"
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Sasuke's "Sharingans only, bitch!" line
* {{Touche}}: Spoofed, because Bob's plan was pathetic.
* TotallyRadical: Neji and Kiba, intentionally invoking ''BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure'' (complete with air guitar).
** This is probably a nod to the Naruto AMV [[http://www.animemusicvideos.org/members/members_videoinfo.php?v=88017 Real Ninjas]].
** Likewise with few bits with Orochimaru and Kabuto
--> '''Orochimaru''': Pack your bags, Kabuto, we're going on a roadtrip! (Cut to a scene of some cars driving across a desert and loud blaring rock music)
--> '''Orochimaru''': NEVER!!!
* TheUnintelligible: Zabuza, whenever he has his bandages on (when he doesn't, he sounds like [[spoiler:Jerry Lewis]]). In his first appearance, even the other characters have trouble understanding him, except for Kakashi, who can also speak Muffled (for [[NoMouth obvious reasons]]). His dialogue is helpfully subtitled in later episodes.
** His fluency in Muffled isn't quite perfect, though.
--> '''Naruto''': Well? What'd he say?
--> '''Kakashi''': He either said he's been hired by Disney to take out the old guy so he can't finish the bridge...or we're going out for coffee next week.
* ViewersAreGoldfish
--> '''Naruto''': Wait, this is only the eighth episode! Why am I having flashbacks? ...Oh yeah, the audience can't remember the stuff that happened in episode ''5''!
* WeDidntStartTheBillyJoelParodies: Has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4UEtHmUTF0 its own "We Didn't Start the Fire" parody]].
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Vegeta3986 disappeared after the release of episode 31 in September 2011. It wasn't until July 2013 that the fans recieved an update on the facebook page. But this was actually given by his girlfriend (coincidently in the same week where Masako announced he and Faulerro were rebooting the series) and it quickly degenerated into a flame war between her, the series' fans and other abridgers. An update video was uploaded to his channel but it was actually Zeromaster who made it. So Vegeta is still missing in action since he's never officially returned.
* YankTheDogsChain: Sasuke, often in terms of the Log and/or Itachi. See InformedAbility above.
