Elsewhere Naruto, Sakura and Shikamaru are on a simple catch and retrieve mission to bring back a ferret to its owner. However en route, the same knights attack the trio with Naruto himself taking on the leader, Temujin. Their battle winds up knocking both of them off a cliff and getting picked up by a caravan of people seeking a new homeland. Eventually Temujin head back to his boss, Haido, who is hoping to find the mysterious Gelel Stone so he can create a utopia. Of course, all isn't what it seems and the stone's power could lead to widespread destruction if Naruto and his friends don't stop it.

* AmazonBrigade: Haido's knights.
* BuriedAlive: Ranke's fate since she had Gaara for an opponent.
* CrazyPrepared: Gaara unveils a sand technique specifically developed to disable lighting users when he is fighting one.
* FrankensteinsMonster: Ranke.
* {{Gainaxing}}: A strange example where Ranke's breasts jiggle during her fight with Gaara, despite the fact that she is wearing (armor (albeit flexible armor, as it stretched along her body when she hulked out).
* GreenRocks: The eponymous stone is a vivid green mineral suffused with energy more potent than chakra that can be channeled into jutsu like techniques or enhance ones own body and lifespan.
* HeelFaceTurn: Temujin over the course of the film as he learns his past and Haido's true nature.
* HeroicSacrifice: Temujin attempts this by stopping the out of control power of Gelel and going down into the void with it. Naruto however will have none of it.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Fugai tries to uses her howl blast on Sakura, but the kunoichi tricks her into doing it underneath a few gigantic chime structures, causing the sound to vibrate and it to collapse right on top of Fugai.
* JekyllAndHyde: Haido for his two-faced nature.
* MakeMeWannaShout: Fugai's main power.
* MindRape: Kamira does this to Kankurō during their first battle, though he characteristically reveals himself as a disguised Karasu and attacks her in midst of her illusion.
* MonsterMash: Haido and his three female warriors all sport this in their [[OneWingedAngel Gelel forms]].
* MookFaceTurn: After Haido reveals his true colors, the faceless knights sacrifice themselves to save the protagonists.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: As Don East pointed out in his review, Haido bears a striking resemblence to Music/EltonJohn.
* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist: Haido's real interest in the power of Gelel is for world domination.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: After their scuffle, Kankuro chases Kamira personally while throwing kunais at her, his puppets tidily packed on his back despite having used them minutes before. This clashes against his common characterization, which involves him fighting through his puppets and never fighting by himself if he can avoid it. It also ends in a note of humor when he and Naruto end up falling to the sea.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Kamira
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Fugai
* OutsideContextProblem: Haido and his knights take the main characters and the Land of Wind by complete surprise, having abilities, equipment, and artifacts completely unknown to them.

* PoweredByAForsakenChild: All of the faceless knights Haido uses [[spoiler: are actually powered by the souls of the children from Temujin's village.]]
* ProphecyTwist: When they reach the main room where the stone lies, there are murals on the wall which depict the rise and fall of Temujin's kingdom ending with a mural of nothing but utter blackness which they perceive as the destruction of everything. [[spoiler: After Haido is stopped and the stone is no more, the blackness breaks off revealing a mural of two tribes shaking hands to symbolize Naruto and Temujin's friendship.]]
* RoyalBlood: Temujin.
* ShockAndAwe: Ranke's main power.
* StrawHypocrite: Haido doesn't practice what he preaches at all and doesn't care for a utopia.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Ranke towards Gaara, who even says it best when one of her attacks fails against him.
-->'''Gaara''': First time fighting a ninja?
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: Haido who claims he wants to use the stone to create peace across the lands. In truth, he's just another power hungry psychopath.
* YouKilledMyFather: Temujin to Haido.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Haido does this to Temujin when he finally locates the stone. Luckily Naruto shows up to prevent Haido from killing him.
