Added DiffLines:

* DigAttack: Sakura's first jutsu, and one of her best. She turns it into an amazingly flexible tool.


* {{Frameup}}: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with.]] Sakura is seemingly framed for the death of Morino Ibiki. While few doubt she could have killed the Jounin, they note she has a strange power and she's the only person who'd have a grudge against him while still walking around. They know she's innocent, however, they had to take her in and make it seem like she's under suspicion or some people might decide to take it personally... like Anko.

Added DiffLines:

* IRegretNothing: Sakura realizes in a conversation with Ino that she didn't regret what she had done in Chapter 25.
-->'''Sakura:''' Wow. I really dont regret it. Im a better person now, Ino. A better ninja. I think I can help my village and Konoha a lot more like I am now than I could have just being a regular genin. Im a better person because of it.


Once upon a time Haruno Sakura was recruited as a spy. What follows is a tale of her struggles under all the difficulties this entails. Most would be crushed under the pressure, the never-ending questions (do they know, do they suspect?) and the constant prodding, demands for more information. Instead of melting down, Sakura rises to the occasion.

* DishingOutDirt: Sakura gets a major power upgrade- and several earth jutsu -due to some serious motivation via Kabuto and knowing [[spoiler: Naruto is the Kyuubi container]]. Eventually she gets good enough to perform it seal-less. Kurotsuchi as well.

Added DiffLines:

* TaughtByExperience: Sakura learned how to fight from her trip from Sand to Leaf, not in training. Because Sasuke wasn't there to see it, he [[UnderestimatingBadassery underestimated her]] when Kakashi ordered them to spar.


Added DiffLines:

* TemptingFate: Sasuke told Sakura it wouldn't be much of a spar when Kakashi ordered them to do so before he could leave. She has him scurrying up a tree like a squirrel to get to safety a few paragraphs later, much to Naruto's delight.


--> "My whole point is this: a village is just a place, Sakura. It's just some buildings and dirt. The idea is that the people who fill that space, and the connections between them, are what really matter. That those things are worth fighting and dying for."

Added DiffLines:

* MyGreatestFailure: Kakashi feels Obito and Rin's deaths, along with Naruto's parents, was this. He believes he wasn't fast enough to save them.
* PetTheDog: Kakashi, despite Sakura being both a spy and traitor, is easily the one person on her side regarless of what happened.
--> "I was already a jounin when I was your age, Sakura. What I would have done in your situation is completely different than what I should expect you to do. It wouldn't be fair to hate you."


Added DiffLines:

* ThePowerOfFriendship: Kakashi believes in this, despite Sakura thinking that it was the sort of thing they, as ninja, were taught to be just the sort of thing you told kids.
--> '''Kakashi:''' "I can see you don't really believe me. Just trust me on it. I'm a lot older than you. When you've seen as much as I have, you start to really appreciate the connections you've made and you miss them when they're severed." \\
