Fan Fic: Naruto: Game of the Year Edition

A Naruto fanfiction written by Majin Hentai X. Takes the concept of a Peggy Sue and adds an interesting twist: what if the character sent back (in this case, Naruto) suddenly finds themselves at a "Game Over" screen, and soon realizes their entire life has become a video game?

...Well, in Naruto's case, an opportunity to do things over again through leveling up, defeating "boss characters", and collecting secret inventory items.

...And dying. Lots and LOTS of dying. Thank the Game Makers for Save Points.

The game begins here.

New Tropes//>>Load Tropes<<//Extras//Options//Help:

  • Anchored Ship: Naruto decides, after a talk with Iruka, not to pursue either Sakura or Hinata romantically, considering all the ill-will towards him and the many way's he's been brutally killed, until he's strong enough to deal with the situations that he runs into on a regular basis. It doesn't stick, though, after Hinata kisses him in a post-sleep delirium. Now the two seem to be going fairly steady.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Of all the end-of-game penalties to Naruto's score (i.e. breaking his nindo, losing a precious person, etc.), one penalty is "Ignored Hinata". Naruto being Naruto, he STILL doesn't get it
    • Also "Died a virgin: -1000 points". That's biggest penalty he gets for any single infraction!
      • Of course considering that Susano is the main programmer it makes a lot of sense.
  • Brain Bleach: Naruto attempts to do this via Head Banger. He fails.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: ...Hoo, boy. Naruto's reaction when he hits the Game Over screen the first time is not to be printed on a family-friendly wiki.
    • Or when he actually finds out Hinata likes him....
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Naruto, as in canon. However, he slowly starts to shift away from "moron" and towards "badass" due to collecting several Intelligence stat powerups.
  • Evil Weapon: The Cursed Katana is very much this. Powered by Kyuubi's malicious chakra? Check. Hostile towards anyone else that tries to touch it? Check. Lights anything non-Naruto it touches on fire? Ohoho, check.
  • Game-Breaking Bug: Of all things, Haku's gender.
  • Hit You So Hard Your X Will Feel It: A subtle example of this happens during the Chuunin Exams. Sasuke, high off his rocks on morphine, is kicked in the balls by Tenten in retaliation for uncharacteristic perviness. He doesn't react one iota, but Uchiha Madara, patriarch of the Uchiha clan, falls to the ground writhing in pain half a world away.
  • I Can't Hear You: Naruto after the Kyubbi mentions it might be masturbating.
    ""NOPE! NOPENOPENOPENOPENOPE!" Naruto lung himself into the air. "I CANNOT NOPE HARD ENOUGH! NOPENOPENOPE!" he ran in circles in the kitchen, flailing wildly. "ALL ABOARD THE NOPE TRAIN TO FUCKTHAT VILLE!""
  • Jerkass Gods: The Game Makers however, they show a tiny bit of kindness; when Hinata's Yamato Nadeshiko subroutine is accidentally activated, they leave it on in order to give her a better chance of surviving the Invasion of Konoha.
    • Chapter 20 shows just how jerkass-ish these gods can be. After Jiraiya loses his temper at two of them they sabotage what they themselves are working towards by cutting him off from all outside help, other Sysadmins' help included, purely out of spite. They didn't make things impossible, just so much harder. To the point where one of the other gods actually apologizes to him.
      • To make things worse. The god that apologizes? Susano. Yes that Susano. When you are so much of a Jerkass that Susano apologizes you know this trope is in effect.
  • Karma Meter: One is in place, and as of yet, Naruto is on the Good side. There seem to be no extra powers for being of a particular karma as of yet, but there are certain jutsu and weapons that he must have certain karma to use (the only one seen so far is Zabuza's sword).
  • Monster Arena: The Hellspawn Pit, fashioned in a similar matter to the Bloody Palace from the Devil May Cry games; a bonus area that Naruto finds in the Forest of Death filled with one hundred floors, with a Boss Battle against a tailed beast every ten floors. Of course, Naruto is a bit confused when he looks around and only counts nine doors...then Kyuubi tells him to look down... The place is so terrifying that Kyuubi himself begs Naruto never to go back to it.
  • My Greatest Failure: Naruto has several of these, most recently failing to get Kin to talk willingly, which leads to Ibiki implementing his own methods.....
  • Nerf: Naruto, during training for the Chunin Exams, stumbles on a brilliant idea: why not send a crowd of Shadow Clones in all directions to find the stat powerups? Unfortunately, after using this a couple times, he is kindly informed by an ANBU operative that using that technique could be interpreted as being used to spy on other candidates, and if he uses it again in that fashion, he'll be disqualified. Fortunately for Naruto, this seems to be an issue only during the Chunin Exams.
  • Orwellian Editor: In-Universe. The Sysadmins frequently have to wipe Naruto's memory after a major glitch.
  • Out of Character: In-Universe. The glitches sometimes makes people act very strange and completely out of character.
  • Power Perversion Potential: The Hyuga's perversion tic is commented on by the Kyuubi in an argument with Naruto, pointing out that not only does Neji activate it randomly around Tenten, but that the girl with X-ray vision is the only girl not fangirling after Sasuke, but him. Naruto is oddly happy at that statement.
  • Status Quo Is God: Naruto quickly finds out that doing anything out of the ordinary as a baby gets him killed, it takes him about five or so times.
  • Sudden Game Interface: The option to Peggy Sue only appears after his first death, in the form of floating text boxes.
  • Time Stands Still: Naruto has the option of pausing the video game at any time by saying the word "pause". Unfortunately, as he discovers during his battle with Itachi, he can't actually attack anyone while in this mode. ...until he is given the option of Skill Tiers, that is.
