- Alternative Character Interpretation: Gouki. Is he an Anti-Villain and borderline Only Sane Man, or just a self-righteous, self-deluding megalomaniac.
- Evil Is Sexy: Aika Kouin and her sisters invoke this in their fights.
- I Knew It: The author made a habit of this:
- Naruto's mom had a similar personality? Check.
- Attacking with a multitude of miniature Rasengans? Check.
- Yugito Nii resurrected as a Path of Pain? Check.
- Kyuubi openly and readily working with Naruto to keep out from under Madara's thumb? Check.
- Memetic Molester: If they share nothing else, Orochimaru and Madara share skin crawling creepiness.
- Nightmare Fuel:
- Madara's form of Body Surfing.
- The Kyubi's description of what she would like to do Naruto.
- The effect of Hinata's Singularity Rasengan.
- Konan's past is comparatively mundane but still creepy: her uncle dressed her up and presented her as a porcelain doll. She would have to sit or stand still for hours on end. She eventually ran away.
- Ron the Death Eater: Madara, being far more sadistic than normal.
- Tear Jerker: Over here.
