- All Issues Are Political Issues: Konoha thinks Naruto's move to an apartment near the Uchiha district and being sponsored by Mikoto is a move by the Uchiha to control the Kyuubi.
- The Aloner: Ino, as a result of Sakura never becoming her friend. Recent chapters have indicated that this might change, though.

Oh, and one of the older cousins is, in the original timeline, the Godaime Mizukage.

- Disease Bleach: Daisuke's white hair- as well as, probably, his "invisibility"- is the result of him dying for a few minutes as a child.
- Education Papa: Fugaku only wants his sons to become stronger, gain prestige for the clan, put the clan above all else and to interact only with the clan, not for their benefit.
