* TheMeddlingKidsAreUseless: For a long period of time, the main characters can actually do very little to improve their situation or the situation of their village. This is actually noted several times in character as a major frustration for the main character because of the lack of [[RealityEnsues control and influence she has in the situation as the lowest rank of shinobi]]. It's also noted she lacks information because the events in Kirigakure are not very well documented at all in the Naruto universe and most of the underlying problems were started decades ago and have been perpetuated since then. This changes however once they catch up the the beginning of the series (the first eighty chapters or so take place starting five years before the start of the main series).

* MusclesAreMeaningless: Averted and explained. It's explained a lot of shinobi prefer a thinner build because it makes it easier for infiltration missions so they can pose as merchants and courtiers and chakra can make them much stronger than a normal person regardless. Also it's just harder for shinobi to build muscle because you have to really exhaust muscle for it to get bigger and the healing factor of chakra requires you to do so either to the point where you've exhausted your chakra as well, or by actively suppressing chakra while you exercise. The former is very difficult but also increases your chakra endurance, the latter gets results more quickly and your overall strength is based how much your chakra can boost your existing muscles. As such most of the characters have done the latter and Ume in particular has to wear baggy clothing to hide how unnaturally muscular her tiny frame is.

* HollywoodHealing: Averted, very much so averted. Every time something horrible happens to someone, they will usually have scars.

* HollywoodHealing: Averted, very much Explained in story that chakra give shinobi a potent [[HealingFactor healing factor]] that heals a wound perfectly thus not leaving any scar tissue unless they're so averted. Every time something horrible happens to someone, low on chakra when they're hurt that they will usually heal start healing normally before they're chakra replenishes. Averted with Ume, [[spoiler:because her chakra is so low, she doesn't have scars.enough to spare when she's hurt.]]


It is a first person story about Ume, a normal girl who was reincarnated into the Naruto universe. Except she wasn't born in Konoha, instead she was orphaned and then raised at an orphanage in another famous village, specifically Kirigakure, during the time of the Bloody Mist.

The story spends a lot of time on world building within the village of the mist, and focuses mainly on several original characters besides the protagonist as well as expands more on less seen canon characters. It also explains a lot of problems and fallacies of the village that caused it to fall into the state that pushed it to have so many strong ninjas defect.

* WordOfGod: The author reads all their reviews on fanfiction.net and if someone asks a question will usually reply back with an answer or an explanation.

Added DiffLines:

* Call-back: The series has a consistent internal continuity which often calls backs especially to minor characters throughout the story. It's usually not played for humor and in one case [[spoiler: Ume is almost killed by a character who has a grudge against her for something she did in the academy which in story time is three years and a hundred and twenty six chapters in the past).]]

* KillerRabbit: Averted with [[SummoningMagic summons]] used throughout the story, especially the rabbit summons. Unlike the normal summons in the show, it's shown most of the rabbit summons can't fight at all and are in fact cowardly in natural, getting jittery around summons or normal animals they consider predators. They however are excellent trackers, natural sensors as well as a great means of sending messages.

* HeroicBSOD: Ume has one after [[spoiler:most of her graduating class dies in the Kaguya invasion]].
* HeroicRROD: One of the reasons some people think Ume being a shinobi is a horrible idea is [[spoiler:every battle she has can result in this happening because of her lower than average chakra, her pushing herself to keep fighting lowers her overall durability. The worst injuries she's gotten so far was her hitting the ground so hard after running away that she broke most the bones in her body.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BadassAdorable: Ume is actually very cute in the sense she looks a bit like a doll, she's small and wears bright colors. This is deliberate on her part, since she vies a lot of her battles by surprising her opponents and takes great pains to hide her appearance when she's outside of the land of water. Kiriko is the same being considered the most physically attractive but also being very effective in her own specialty.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayingWithSyringes: There is a huge focus about how Orochimaru does this by kidnapping people from the Land of Sound as well as in the Land of Earth. The former were so brutally maimed and poisoned that those who didn't just die were forever scared and crippled, the later they couldn't even properly give that much because of how dangerous the experiments had made them and the lack of resources available to do so.
