* NormalFishInATinyPond: The Shukaku is officially the weakest Bijuu, but unfortunately for Naruto he is still a Bijuu, socould perfectly destroy Konoha if he wanted to, and the only reason why Gamabunta has a chance against him, is because the Shukaku does not is at 100% of its power.


* NotSoDifferent: Naruto sympathizes with Gaara as he realizes he had the same rough childhood he had.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: With most of Gaara's past shown of what led to him and war breaking out ending Hiruzen's death, it does qualify for this trope.


* GoThroughMe: Attempted by Sakura with Sasuke; when Gaara moves in to finish off Sasuke, who is injured and too weak to move, Sakura jumps between them--wielding a kunai and sporting a huge DeathGlare--to protect him. Unfortunately for her, Gaara just slams her against a tree, pins her there, and knocks her out, but this does save Sasuke, as it buys enough time for Naruto to get there.

* VillainousBreakdown: Gaara as Naruto starts gaining ground on him. So much so he completely goes OneWingedAngel just to gain the edge.
** And once Naruto actually beats him, he sees an exhausted but still determined Naruto crawling ''by nothing but his chin alone''. Gaara, who through most of the arc scared the crap out of everyone, ''pleads'' for him to stay away.
