* AcceptableTargets: The series made numerous and rather venomous {{take that}}s toward YaoiFangirls and the original series's HoYay (to the point of [[GenderFlip turning a character female]] in order to avoid it). However, this eventually lead to many accusations of homophobia against the creators.
* 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.
** 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 [[Creator/LittleKuriboh LK's]] [[WebVideo/NarutoTheAbridgedComedyFandubSpoofSeriesShow version]] came out first, which was far more well received.
** 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.
* 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.
* FandomRivalry: With most of Little Kuriboh's works, mostly due to his sometimes uncalled for [[TakeThat Take Thats]] towards this series and the fact that he likes to remind people of ''Naruto The Abridged Movie's'' poor quality [[NeverLiveItDown six years later]].
* 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, [[Creator/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, that was before the announcement that Creator/RogerCraigSmith voiced 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! GRRRRRRRRRR!"
** "A chicken! I'll name you Clucky!"
** The "Gaara of the Funk" sequence that happens whenever Gaara mentions his name is popular.
* {{Misblamed}}: Contrary to popular belief, the quality of ''Naruto The Abridged Movie'' didn't get [=Vegeta3986=] fired from Creator/TeamFourStar. He left because he had gotten a teaching job in Japan, and he wasn't able to commit to schedule.
* NeverLiveItDown: As of 2017, some people (or just Creator/LittleKuriboh) won't let [=Vegeta3986=] live down ''Naruto The Abridged Movie.''
* TearJerker: Masako's announcement that he will be leaving the series.
* TheScrappy: Sakura in the series.
* WeirdAlEffect: ''WebVideo/NarutoTheAbridgedComedyFandubSpoofSeriesShow'' has gradually grown more popular than this.
* 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.
