* DemotedToExtra: Kimimaro's other Sound Five members aren't fought in the story chapters, despite the fact they're actual playable characters. This causes him to be elevated to AscendedExtra because the entire Sasuke Retrieval arc involves fighting him most of the time. In fact, he appears ''way'' sooner than when he did in the manga.

* BouncingBattler: Well, it is a game about ninjas, but this game in particular is quite bad for it, any and all AI opponents who are not giant bosses can and will hop around like caffeine addicted monkeys, denying you a chance to get in for a hit, to almost HairPulling degrees. Thankfully, the chakra charge move seems to mitigate this as you home and shoulder check them, stopping them in their tracks.

** The way exploration is handled in general; You can run up walls and jump from rooftop to rooftop, and even fly through the air with the Naruto Cannon. None of this comes back in the sequels.

** Jutsu clashing was originally carried over from earlier ''Ultimate Ninja'' games as well. When certain moves such as Rasengan or Rotation collide, a brief button mash contest starts up. Later games dropped this mechanic.

Added DiffLines:

** Naruto and Sasuke's Awakened forms (Nine-Tailed Fox and Curse Seal Level 2) could be selected as separate characters, would last for the whole fight and had their own Ultimate Jutsus. In later games they're strictly Awakening only.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: Since in this game's story mode you only play as the good guys, you get to control Tenten, Hinata, Rock Lee and Sakura during the Chunin Exam preliminaries. The problem is that, in the manga, the first three characters lost their matches and Sakura's fight with Ino ended in a draw. And no, they aren't shown losing in a cutscene after that; the game treats their victories as genuine. Which is even weirder when, during the finals, you get to fight against the people they supposedly beat.
