** Also in the Invasion of Pain arc, Hinata confessed her love to Naruto, which left him [[StunnedSilence completely stunned]], and she got stabbed before he could respond or let her confession truly sink in. Upon being ForcedToWatch her get stabbed, Naruto came close to crossing the DespairEventHorizon. Here, [[SwappedRoles Naruto]] confesses his love to Hinata, which leaves her completely stunned, and [[MomentKiller Toneri ruins the moment]] before she can reaffirm her love for him. Upon Hinata [[spoiler:"rejecting" him and leaving with Toneri to have a better chance at saving Hanabi]], Naruto crosses the DespairEventHorizon so badly that he comes very close to ''giving up on everything''.

* LoveRevelationEpiphany: Naruto realizes the true nature of Hinata's feelings for him, and his own for her, after witnessing her feelings for him firsthand when they were trapped in a genjutsu that makes them relive their memories. Considering Kakashi stated in Chapter 314 that Naruto is a kinesthetic/direct learner (someone who learns with his body or by doing, [[LikeFatherLikeSon just like his father Minato]]), this actually makes sense--Naruto ''needed'' to physically walk through his and Hinata's merged memories to finally understand both her feelings and his own.

* LovingAShadow: Sakura helps Naruto realize that his former crush on her was ultimately another facet of his rivalry with [[TheAce Sas]][[ChickMagnet uke]] than any actual romantic feelings, because when they were younger, particularly in their Academy years and early on in Part I, [[GreenEyedMonster Naruto]] just wanted to beat out [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter Sasuke]] at something for once--which was implied in Chapter 3. What Naruto has with Hinata is his first and ''only'' experience of both FirstLove and [[OneTrueLove true love]], because he genuinely fell in love with the person, rather than the idea of winning someone over by beating out someone else. Finally, [[WordOfGod Kishimoto himself explicitly stated]] that Sakura was his first crush while Hinata is his FirstLove.
