"Itachi didn't kill the clan, instead he and his friends are teaching the next generation to drive them (and maybe the rest of Konoha) crazy. Won't that be fun?"
Itachi chooses a different path and arranges for several academy children to receive extra training.
- Creepy Child: Apparently Kisame was one.
- Deadpan Snarker: Quite a few. Itachi has quite a few moments. Actually, everyone seems to have their moment at some point.
- The Gadfly: Shisui seems to be this. At one point he claims he is Itachi's fiancé.
- Loophole Abuse: How Itachi managed to pull off the extra training program.
- Mythology Gag: When Sasuke asks Itachi what would happen to Shisui if he revealed to Ino, Sakura and Shino the identity of his girlfriend, he states:
Itachi: “Then, little brother, I may just have to plot against him, and maybe kill him and make it look like suicide if things go too far.”
Kiba: "…That was weirdly specific."
- Once Killed a Man with a Noodle Implement: Ninja. Bound to come up.
Shikamaru: "Whoa…I think my mom just killed a guy with her sandal…"
- Pass the Popcorn: Itachi at one point states his in this sort of mood.
- Sneeze Cut: It happens to Deidara when Itachi talks about him to the children.
