* BaseBreaker: NTAM, or Naruto The Abridged Movie. No two reactions will be the same, not everyone thinks it's actually serious or a case of Vegeta being a {{Troll}}, the comment section is a complete war zone, and the quality has been argued as the lowest the series has ever sunk. Doesn't help that [[LittleKuriboh LK's version came out first, provoking comparisons all over the place.]]
** The new voices from NTAS 31 onward. If you've watched ''Shippuden Abridged'' by CanadianJutsu, you'll probably become fans of these episodes. If you haven't, then you'll probably hate them.
* BrokenBase: Over Masako's returning to the series with Faulerro. Reception was somewhat mixed. Especially by Vegeta's girlfriend, who attacked Masako on Twitter over his returning.
* EarWorm: "I fought the log and the... log won, I fought the log and the... log won!"
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Took advantage of Iruka being one in the anime and got him into a running rivalry with Kakashi.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The creators in-show arguments become bitter when you realize one of the reasons [=MasakoX=] quit.
* HarsherInHindsight: All of episode 28. This is where Sasuke (voiced by [=MasakoX=] ends his friendship with Naruto and Sakura (both of whom are voiced by Vegeta) and leaves. Like the FunnyAneurysmMoment above, it's very bitter when taking the creators into account.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** Mickey Mouse takes on the role of the BigBad in the Wave Country Arc (as Gatou). In a fanart contest submission, he explains he dressed up as a 60-year-old man since as a cartoon mouse "how the hell [is he] supposed to scare anybody?". [[EpicMickey Cue a few years later, then...]]
** Naruto is eventually convinced that Idate is SonicTheHedgehog. About three months later, [[RogerCraigSmith guess whose voice actor is announced to be the new Sonic]]?
*** Which is even funnier because earlier, he mistook him for Franchise/{{Batman}}. Well, it was recently announced that RogerCraigSmith will be voicing a young Bruce Wayne in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins''.
** Orochimaru offers Baki a pony in exchange for his services to the Sound, to which Baki replies: "I like the pink one." This episode predated ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' by about two years.
* HoYay: With Jiraiya and Orochimaru, surprisingly.
* MemeticMutation: "Son of a bitch! GYAAAAAAAAAH!!!"
* TearJerker: Masako's announcement that he will be leaving the series.
* YokoOhNo: Vegeta's girlfriend Serstoic is shaping up to be this, if only for being responsible for Naruto the Abridged Movie's... less than satisfactory editing.
