The movie opens with Naruto dying...or rather of vision of him. In the present time, a man name Yomi attempt to resurrect a demon named Mōryō. With the only thing that can stop him bring a special presitess name Shion. As such Konoha is hired to protect her with Naruto, Sakura, Neji, and Rock Lee charged with doing so till they can reach Moryo's seal. However Moryo has his subordinates looking for them to ensure Shion is killed and is the prophecy of Naruto's death a true vision of things to come or can fate be changed?
Naruto Shippuden The Movie has the following tropes:
- All Up To You: Naruto and Shion have to save the day since Neji, Sakura and Lee have to stall the enemies currently chasing them.
- All Your Colors Combined: Shion's fully unleashed Chakra looks like it's made of multiple colors. Granted, she appears to get it from her mother.
- Bare Your Midriff: Shion
- Barrier Maiden: Shion
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: Moryo isn't fooled when he hears that Shion is dead. He quickly points out to his men that she can't be dead because he can still sense her presence.
- Eldritch Abomination: Moryo
- Determinator: Naruto's always been this, but he takes it to an extreme level in this film, considering he has his prophesied death hanging over him the whole time.
- Disney Death: Shion when it seems Yomi's subordinates killed her. Turns out it was her servant acting in her place.
- Girl of the Week: This weeks girl is named Shion.
- The Hero Dies: Well that was the tagline of the movie and it does seem to start off that way, even having a funeral for Naruto. But its just a fake out and its obvious they wouldn't really kill him off.
- The Movie
- Sealed Evil in a Can: Moryo
- Ship Tease: Shion strongly implies that Naruto should couple with her to produce an heir. Naruto unknowingly complies
- You Can't Fight Fate: How Shion feels due to her predictions...at first.
