* TraumaCongaLine: The author uses this trope to great effect. He's like Shakespeare with this trope. He always finds a way to ruin his main characters lives, often putting them in positions where they have to make [[ShootTheDog rather questionable decisions]] or make their backstories even more tragic - except Naruko, she's had it ridiculously easy compared to everyone else. But this is a case of TropesAreNotBad. A lot of great CharacterDevelopment comes out of their trauma.

Added DiffLines:

* HateSink:
** Behind his status as a Konoha jounin, a philanthropist and the founder of an orphanage, [[WouldHurtAChild Kenta Ayatsuri]] experiments on children, turns them into [[TykeBomb Tyke-Bombs]] or into prostitutes to fund his activities. Raising Kakashi after his father's death, he turned him into a child soldier, and out of spite towards Minato when the latter took Kakashi away from him, sold information to Iwa and orchestrated Obito's death. Kidnapping a pregnant Rin in the ''Wave-Verse'' after she married Kakashi, he killed the baby and tortured Rin to death. In the Alive!Yondaime verse, Kenta is introduced sending his dogs to maul a young Kin to death [[DisproportionateRetribution because she cried when he gave her to a brothel]]. Kidnapping Alternate!Rin, he blamed her for taking Kakashi away from "his rightful owner" and tried to kill her. He later revealed that he committed all of this to turn Kakashi into his "masterpiece", and so that he will be remembered. When Kakashi replies that he will do everything to forget him, a spiteful Kenta attempts to kill him and Rin. AM hypocrite, he claimed that bonds with others were useless, while constantly using others to fulfill his ambitions.
** In Kitsune's world, [[ItsAllAboutMe Fugaku and Mikoto Uchiha]] have none [[AdaptationalVillainy of their canon counterpart's qualities]]. Forced in a [[AwfulWeddedLife political marriage despite hating each other]], they grew jealous of Minato and Kushina's happy marriage, (especially Mikoto, because Kushina rejected her advances) and revealed their location to Amaterasu (Kitsune's World!Madara Uchiha), during Kushina's pregnancy, leading to the Kyuubi attack, resulting in Minato and Kushina's sacrifice and countless deaths in Konoha. They later plot a coup against Konoha, supposedly for the good of the Uchiha clan, but Fugaku in truth doesn't care about the clan, not even telling them of his role in Konoha's attack, and just wants power for himself, not caring about who lives and who dies in their coup attempt. While Fugaku was uneasy about handing over a Jinchuuriki, Mikoto happily promised to [[WouldHurtAChild give Kitsune]] to Amaterasu as a weapon out of spite towards Kushina. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Amaterasu]], one of the main villains, is disgusted by their actions, and call them out on it, to no avail. Fugaku and Mikoto end up being so despicable they're responsible for everything bad in Kitsune's world.
** In the "Ame-Verse", [[TheCaligula Yagura, the Fourth Mizukage]], also lacks his canon counterpart's redeeming qualities, leaving only a murderous SocialDarwinist. Willingly starting the canon graduation program in Kiri's Ninja Academy consisting of students killing each other (to weed out the weak in favor of the strong), Yagura sent his "Blood Police" kill any "weak" civilian, shinobi and clansman, and also plans a genocide against anyone who's unlucky enough to have a bloodline. Allying with Ame's Hanzo, he chose to kill Nagato, Yahiko, and Konan, not due to his alliance with Hanzo, but because he hated them, stating that he [[ForTheEvulz would have killed them even if he wasn't allied with Hanzo]]. After killing Yahiko, [[KickTheDog he laughed while Konan cried, and mocked Hanzo when the latter also regretted having to send Yahiko to his death]]. When challenged alongside Hanzo to a fight by Kazama and Tsukiyomi, he accepted and later came close to killing part of the audience during one of his attacks, and [[TakingYouWithMe released the Sanbi out of spite when Kazama defeated him]].
** In the "Road to Ninja" verse, [[Characters/NarutoObitoUchiha Obito Uchiha]] discards [[AdaptationalVillainy his canon counterpart's likable traits]]. Winning against the Shinobi alliance, Obito launched the Infinite Izanagi technique, [[OmnicidalManiac killing everyone in his world]], and creating a new world in his image, where he creates people. While claiming that he respected Naruto and regretted to kill him, it is only MoralMyopia as he is an emotionally {{Abusive Parent|s}} to Menma Uzumaki, Naruto's alternate counterpart, and he can't even bother to care about the people he personally knew and ruined, much less for the people he murdered who he did not know personally, failed to replace them in his new world, citing them as unneeded or unimportant. His entire fighting style is bullying, and to gain a small psychological advantage against Kazama, he wipes out his own world's Konoha, not caring for his own creations. When it's pointed out his wife, Rin, was there, Obito replies that he doesn't care, as he can always recreate her. His pettiness is upped to eleven as he plans to spread the Infinite Izanagi in the multiverse, [[EvilIsPetty despite already having a personal paradise]].


* [[CrapsackWorld Crapsack Multiverse]]: With traces of WorldHalfFull, but (in this fic) as Tsukiyomi tells Kazama, [[spoiler:most everyone he's ever known has had an ulterior motive including people he's long-respected, there's a conspiracy in his past made up of his Konoha peers' parents and assorted, and in nearly every world ''someone'' is screwing over his counterpart For The Good Of Konoha.]] Though admittedly part of the reasoning ''is'' warped into looking its absolute worse for Kazama's eyes [[spoiler:because of Mikaboshi.]] The heroes are basically a ray of sunshine amidst this simply because they actually ''give a fuck about each other''.

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7028564/1/Echoes Echoes]]'', by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2825943/Kagaseo Kagaseo]] is a ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' fanfiction where a modification of the seal holding back the Kyuubi has surprising consequences. [[spoiler:It's also something of a crossover with Yet again with a little extra help by Third Fang]].

The story begins with a slightly different version of the canon Naruto's fight with Orochimaru in the Land of Grass. However, [[spoiler:Sai betrays the group early]], leading Naruto, renamed "Kazama" to avoid confusion, into a battle with Orochimaru, during which his seal is twisted. This alters the mechanics of the seal, giving Kazama the ability to travel into other worlds, meeting alternate versions of himself, his friends, families, or even enemies. Most prominently featured are Naruko, a female Naruto, Chibaku, one that was trained by Sasori, and Kitsune, one that had [[DemonicPossession some issues with his Kyuubi]].

[[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters And more]]. Problem is, the group ends up followed by Madara and two of his duplicates, who want to control Kazama's power.

The story contains a deal of artistic license, created to fill in plot gaps that existed in the manga, while the driving force behind the fic is being a DeconstructorFleet - not just from the manga, but moreso certain cliches that appear in Naruto fan fiction. However, being written prior to several revelations in the manga, there are discrepancies. For instance, Madara, the entire trio, actually possesses the abilities that ''Tobi'' had, before [[spoiler:it was revealed that Tobi was Obito Uchiha, and that Madara Uchiha had a largely different powerset]]. There is ''another'' Tobi that joins the trio, but that one has [[spoiler:little to nothing to do with Obito]]. Fortunately, given the premise, these changes tend to work out.

This suffered from InternetBackdraft due to the nature of their cameo.

* BiggerBad: [[spoiler: Amatsu Mikaboshi and the Shinigami]], both of whom have their hooks in the protagonist. [[spoiler:The Shinigami may qualify as BigGood]].


* FiveBadBand:
** The main one is, debatably...
--> TheLeader - Tsukiyomi
--> TheDragon - Amaterasu
--> TheBrute - Susanoo
--> EvilGenius - Izanami
--> SixthRanger - [[spoiler:Kazama]]
*** [[spoiler:By chapter 36 it has completely fallen apart. Amaterasu is dead. Nobody knows what Tsukiyomi's up to - if he's even planning ''anything'' anymore. Susanoo has teamed up with a new Madara renamed Izanagi and has gone [[TheStarscream Starscream]] to Tsukuyomi. While Izanami has fallen in love with Kazama and is stopping him from falling completely off the deep end into a FaceHeelTurn.]]
** The Kumogakure arc:
--> BigBad[=/=]EvilGenius - Orochimaru [[spoiler: from Kazama's home dimension.]]
--> TheDragon - The Raikage, A
--> [[TheBrute The Brutes]] The Sandaime, Jiraiya, and Tsunade revived with Edo Tensei.
--> TheDarkChick - N
--> SixthRangerTraitor - Yugito
** The Dystopia arc:
--> BiggerBad - [[spoiler:[[EldritchAbomination The Juubi]]]]
--> BigBad - [[spoiler:[[ItsAllAboutMe Alpha.]]]] She shares the EvilGenius position with [[spoiler:Five]] because while she makes the plans Five is the only one who actually seems to use his brain and ''think''.
--> CoDragons -
---> EvilGenius - [[spoiler:[[TragicVillain Five.]]]] He is easily [[spoiler:Alpha's]] most competent, loyal, and powerful servant almost killing both Chibaku and Kuebiko. He shares EvilGenius status with the BigBad despite being AxCrazy because he is the OnlySaneMan and seems to be the only person in the ANBU to capable of higher brain functions.
---> TheBrute - [[spoiler:[[SycophanticServant Three]]]] - While she is CoDragons with [[spoiler:Five]] her lack of higher brain functions, love of burning things, being a SycophanticServant, and losing her fight ''off-screen'' compared to her hypercompetent counterpart firmly puts her in this position.
--> TheDarkChick - [[PunchClockVillain Ninety and Twenty]] - They were just unlucky enough to be present at the final battle.
** The Past Enemy arc (though they're not all truly working togther - some were just manipulated by Kenta to be at his location so he would have meat shields):
--> BiggerBad - [[spoiler:GodOfEvil Amatsu-Mikaboshi]]]] - Incarnates through Hidan to give the villains orders and later [[MassOhCrap physically backs them]] when Hidan summons it.
--> BigBad - [[TheSociopath Kenta Ayatsuri]] - Kakashi's ArchEnemy and by far the most evil thing in the story.
--> TheDragon - [[HonorBeforeReason Inugami]]. A Boss class dog Summon that is summoned by Kenta and plays the traditional Dragon role of acting as the key physical threat to contrast Kenta's mental one.
--> {{The Brute}}s - [[CanisMajor Hatake and Kakashi]] - Kenta's two AxCrazy Nin-Hounds.
--> TheEvilGenius - [[HeroKiller Kakuzu]] - The only member that is actually [[OnlySaneMan sane]]. On top of that he is a NoNonsenseNemesis CombatPragmatist HeroKiller.
--> TheDarkChick - [[ReligionOfEvil Hidan]] - The weakest member and in the end he is just [[spoiler:Amatsu-Mikaboshi's meat puppet.]]
** Susanoo uses Edo Tensei to form the most powerful Six Paths of Pain ever in the Seperation arc.
*** BigBadDuumvirate: [[TheFatalist Susanoo]] and [[spoiler: [[DomesticAbuser Izanagi]] as the [[GravityMaster Deva Path]].]]
*** TheDragon: [[GreenThumb Hashirama]] as the [[SummonMagic Animal Path]].
*** TheBrute's: [[TheJuggernaut The Third Raikage]] as the [[TruthSerum Naraka Path]] and [[DisintegratorRay Mu]] as the [[EnergyAbsorption Preta Path]].
*** The EvilGenius: [[ExtraOreDinary The Third Kazekage]] as the [[ShapeshifterWeapon Asura Path]].
*** TheDarkChick: [[MasterOfIllusion The Second Mizukage]] as the [[YourSoulIsMine Human Path]].

* PassingTheTorch: The Will of Fire has suffered a brutal deconstruction in this story. It is pointed out that the Will of Fire passes ''everything'' down to the next generation, including things like hatred, bigotry, revenge, and racism, which in turn creates people like [[RightWingedMilitaryFanatic Danzo]], [[DarkMessiah Kazama]], [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Kitsune]], and [[OmnicidalManiac Kitsune's Kyuubi]]. Realistically, the Will of Fire actually ''propagates'' the CycleOfHatred, not stops it. Pretty much every Naruto's suffering is ''caused'' by the Will of Fire due to the hatred that is passed down from adults to children. And let's not get started about what it did to the [[CrapsackWorld Dystopia-verse...]]
