Broken Bird: Her sarcasm helps her cope with her past. And boy does she need the coping.
Dark and Troubled Past:Her best friends and teacher were brutally murdered, she just barely escaped the same treatment and she finds out that the whole hellish affair was orchestrated by a high ranking member of her village.
Cute Bruiser: Becomes a Lightning Bruiser thanks to Gai's taijutsu training and the Kyuubi's chakra and can now punch through metal if he's focused and angry enough.
Dark and Troubled Past: In addition to his canon troubles, people tried to kill Naruto as a toddler (usually around the first of each month), the hospital staff hate him and shopkeepers and store owners regularly try to screw him over.
Heroic BSOD: After his first kill. Hinata and Kurenai snap him out of it.
Again after Kurenai's death. Shino, Hinata, Jiraiya, Iruka and Konohamaru bring him back around.
Highly-Visible Ninja: He eventually buys several dark green uniforms and a grey scarf to counteract this.
The McCoy: Much more given to emotion than Shino and Hinata, though not nearly as much as his canon self.
Oblivious to Love: Deconstructed. Hinata's shyness and his childhood means he doesn't notice the signs. Kurenai spits it out for him in a letter.
Power Incontinence: Tends to put a lot of chakra into his ninjutsu which can backfire if the jutsu doesn't really need that much. Eventually begins supercharging them anyway to use them on multiple targets.
Protectorate: Team 8 and Konoha are this for Naruto and he takes his duty seriously.
Wide-Eyed Idealist: Significantly less so than in canon, since he does hope to become Hokage to disprove everyone who ever persecuted him.
Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: The possibility of Naruto becoming one of these is discussed. Itachi is attempting to break Kurenai's mind with his Dojutsu by making her live and relive the killing of herself and her team by a mob. She breaks it by forcing the illusion to faithfully recreate Naruto's likely reaction if he were to see Hinata killed: releasing the Kyuubi of his own will and letting it destroy the village.
Determinator: Noted as one of Hinata's strengths and weaknesses. Her father's abuse hasn't stopped her from trying to be a better ninja and impress him (among others) but it warps her self-esteem to the point that almost anything is better than being a failure.
Death Seeker: Years of abuse from her father have made Hinata this. As Kurenai later points out, Hinata would rather die than disappoint someone.
Beware the Quiet Ones: Possibly the quietest person in the story but just as dangerous as the rest of his team.
Big Brother Instinct: Is eldest of the 3 genin and is very enraged by threats to the others' safety.
Calling the Old Man Out: After learning the truth about Naruto, Shino tears his clan apart over their treatment of his teammate and influencing Shino's opinion about him.
Defrosting Ice King: While he was, at worst, neutral to Naruto at the beginning of the story, Shino didn't think highly of his skills and temperament. This changes in short order after Naruto proves himself.
Guile Hero: On the occasions he does speak, Shino tends to verbally harpoon people he dislikes and get them to do what he wants.
I Am Not Left-Handed: Was a lot more skilled than he let on when the team was first formed and eventually stopped hiding it.
Jack of All Stats: Not as strong or as tough as Naruto, not as fast as Hinata but well-rounded enough that it's rarely a problem. Though to people outside his team, he's a Lightning Bruiser. Sasuke has trouble keeping up with his foot speed.
Mana Burn: What he frequently uses his bugs to do to his opponents.
Break the Haughty: Not as bad as his students but Kakashi finds out they aren't quite as strong as he thinks they are.
Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Subverted over time, as the author has him cut back on his eccentric behavior as he is forced to train his team seriously.
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Because Naruto's on Team 8 in the story, we rarely get to see the Badass. And his eccentricity is dialed back as he starts taking training his students seriously.
Disappointed In You: Has this reaction when all three of his students fail the Chunin Exams before the finals.
Let's Get Dangerous: When he gives his team their orders during the invasion, they realize that this is the ANBU Captain in him speaking.
Sink-or-Swim Mentor: Deconstructed. Without Naruto to mitigate some of the Team's weaknesses, his students don't do nearly as well in the Exams. Eventually they demand more involved teaching.
Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: The Top Rookie of his class and legitimately powerful though not nearly as much as he thinks.
Break the Haughty: He mocks someone who helped save his life while he was unconscious. He gets his jaw broken in a Curb-Stomp Battle by her enraged classmate who happens to be the dead-last of his class.
Charles Atlas Superpower: While only one of its genin is unable to use chakra, all members use more comparatively mundane methods to defeat opponents that fostered by constant practice i.e. Gai and Lee punch people really well, Neji pokes people really well and Tenten stabs people really well.
Hypocrite: For all his apparent fatalism, Neji tries very hard to be anything other than just another Branch Family member, even though it's clearly his caste in life and thus what he is supposed to be.
Action Girl: Bit of an Informed Ability but she helps Lee and Naruto in taijutsu training by using them for target practice and neither of them are slouches. It took a while for her to not be able to hit Naruto in the face.
Sink-or-Swim Mentor: Similar to Kakashi. The difference being his team actually does relatively well during the Chuunin Exams.
Brilliant but Lazy: It's the former Trope Namer, for crying out loud. He actually manages to win his prelim match without moving from his starting stance, but gives it up, realizing Temari is up to something.
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Has a much better showing in-story than he does in canon. He fights Shino in the Semifinals of the Exams and mostly loses due to Shino's bugs being able to attack from long distances.
Cool Teacher: With the exception of Hanabi and maybe Sasuke, all of his students look back fondly on their lessons with him.
Guile Hero: Best seen in the Chuunin Exams arc, where he disguises himself and essentially cons several Hyuugas out of their money and investments. He also, along with Kurenai and Sarutobi are trying to unravel the Government Conspiracy against Naruto.
No One Could Survive That: Konohamaru says this of him when Iruka tries to intercept his and Hanabi's kidnappers. While injured badly, Iruka mostly received flesh wounds.
Rags to Riches: Becomes quite wealthy after the Chuunin Exams, thanks to all of the bets he made and took on others' behalf.
Kick the Dog: Several examples. A few of the more notable ones include:
Forcing Hinata to train all night even though she tells him she has a mission the next day.
Planning on punishing Neji for losing against Naruto.
Complaining about how a "peasant" like Kurenai's teammate Mattai ended up with a Byakugan, which ends up coming back to bite him when he tries to manipulate the person in question into joining the Branch Family.
Entitled Bitch: Looks down on everyone except her father and completely takes it for granted that she will be protected. She actually says that Iruka shouldn't have tried to save her because he was clearly outclassed, despite the fact thatIruka was trying to save HER.
Frogs and Toads: The Toad Summoner of course and holder of its Contract.Because of his friendship with Shino, Naruto decides not to take the Contract.
Parental Substitute: Becomes one of the primary adult figures in Naruto's life after Kurenai's death and honors her Last Request to make him both a great ninja and not quite as perverted as he is. Makes sense because he's still Naruto's godfather.
Spared by the Adaptation: Zabuza is killed by Kakashi in the Land of Waves and Haku takes his vengeance against Gato and later surrenders. Team 7 brings him before the Hokage who chooses to recruit him instead.
Walking Spoiler: Talking about him reveals one of the major ways in which the fic diverges from canon, as well as the fact that one of the people involved still has more of a role to play in the story.
Action Girl: Gets into an epic fight with Naruto that he only wins on a technicality and proceeds to beat him up and down the street.
Broken Bird: The deaths of her loved ones still weigh on her conscience.
Birds of a Feather: Would have gotten along well with Kurenai, laments never having met her.
Older Than They Look: Because of circumstances here, when revealed, she doesn't look ancientnote Like how she appears after using Genesis Rebirth after fighting Orochimaru and Kabuto, just clearly older than her genjutsu would suggest.
Graceful Loser: He's more curious about Naruto than pissed he didn't get to kill him.
Hidden Depths: He's essentially a prince of the Sand Village and on the rare occasion he's not behaving like a stoic Serial Killer or an overzealous Serial Killer, he can present and conduct himself as one.
The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: He takes an immediate interest to Naruto on their first encounter due to their similar circumstances, and even goes so far as to delay leaving the Forest of Death for several days just so he can have a chance at killing him.
Pet the Dog/Pragmatic Villainy: The latter is when he formally surrenders to Naruto in chapter 18 because he realizes that just because Naruto doesn't want to kill him doesn't meant he can't and wouldn't if he feels he has to. The former comes in because his surrender means his siblings no longer have to fight and possibly be killed by Team 8 for his sake.
