* Kabuto revives Deidara. Whose ultimate technique is pretty much a nuclear explosion.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Have Deidara use it immediately. As a bonus, if he can convince Tobi, have Tobi teleport to the Shinobi Alliance HQ and summon Deidara there and nuke them immediately. If Kabuto was feeling sadistic, he can have Deidara teleported and nuke Konoha and the 4 other villages or wherever the innocents were hiding. \\
'''Instead:''' Deidara uses his common techniques and resorts to nuking himself only when he's captured. He's restrained before he can use that technique again.



'''Instead:''' Instead, he turns off the Preta Path ability thus enabling him to be blindsided by Itachi in [[PowerArmor Susano'o]], and Naruto and Bee get freed. To add insult to injury, he has Nagato use Chibaku Tensei and just ''stands there'' instead of you know, summoning another bird or one of the Rams or Rhinos in his disposal. He doesn't even keep the Preta Path ability up for the slim chance that Chibaku Tensei gets destroyed, and thus, Nagato gets sealed. Granted, Kabuto probably wasn't aware that the Chibaku Tensei could be stopped or avoided, but he was facing three very crafty ninja; you'd think he'd be more [[CombatPragmatist pragmatic]].

'''Worse Still :''' He also could've just used [[OneHitKill Human Path]] to remove Naruto and Bee's souls killing them. Then wait for the Eight Tails and Nine Tails to be revived to capture them.


'''Result:''' Fourth Shinobi World War and Tobi kills Konan and takes the Rinnegan back.

* Nagato is dead and Konan defects from Akatsuki. Konan has Nagato's corpse with the Rinnengan eyes. Konan also knows Tobi will come back for those eyes.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Konan destroy the eyes. Even if she couldn't do it, she could just remove the eyes, and give it to someone else like Naruto. \\
'''Instead:''' She keeps the eyes and the body in a shrine somewhere. \\

** Naruto is framed for attempting to assassinate a number of important ninja from various nations, including the Raikage himself. Tsunade knows that Naruto's innocent, but decides to send him to Blood Prison, due to the fact that there's a MacGuffin there that Konoha wants destroyed.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Tsunade to assure Naruto that she knows that he's not guilty, and give him a mission to play along with the accusations, and go to Blood Prison to destroy the MacGuffin. It's not like he'll mind such a mission, given his patriotism.\\

** In her defense, As Madara later revealed, Rin didn't really have a choice, as she was being controlled by Madara. Same goes for her pursuers.
* Kushina is the jinchuuriki of the Nine-Tails. When she gives birth, the seal holding it will weaken.\\

'''Result:''' Naruto lives the first twelve years of his life in isolation and depression and only through the sheer luck that he had the strength of character as a MessianicArchetype to move on from their mistreatment of him did the Leaf Village dodge the bullet of a walking nuclear bomb with the emotional stability of an Uchiha turning their village into a speck of dust out of despair and anger.
* Sarutobi has to break the news of what happened to the Kyuubi and 4th Hokage to the village.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' He (lies and) tells them that the Kyuubi died with 4th Hokage and Naruto is 4th Hokage's son asking the village to help raise their hero's son.\\
'''Instead:''' He tells them the truth (except 4th Hokage's son part), forbids people to talk about it and then does nothing as Naruto experiences the worst childhood ever. Even worse, he does nothing to help make Naruto's life better yet has the gall to feel guilty about it.
* Gaara's father needs to insure that he has control over the Shukaku to make sure that he won't lose control of him.\\

* Itachi Uchiha was given a mission to wipe out the whole of the Uchiha Clan, to prevent them starting a civil war. Itachi agrees, but is unwilling to kill his beloved little brother, Sasuke. He also wants to ensure Sasuke's survival and dispel the Uchiha's negative reputation it gained following the Nine-Tails attack.\\

'''Result:''' In the end, the destruction of the entire clan brought a strong weakening of the military power of Konoha, allowed Tobi acquire a large number of Sharingans in his laboratory and also acquire another member of the Akatsuki for sealing Tailed Beasts. Itachi's scheme with Sasuke ends up working [[GoneHorriblyRight a little too well]], before [[GoneHorriblyWrong failing completely]]: In order to become strong enough to kill Itachi, Sasuke ends up defecting from Konoha to Orochimaru, a guy who wants to possess him for his eyes. And Sasuke happily embraces the possibility of this happening if it would help him get his revenge. When Sasuke does kill Itachi, he's taken into the custody of Tobi, who explains the truth of what Itachi was up to, causing Sasuke to want to [[DisproportionateRetribution destroy]] [[MisplacedRetribution the whole of Konoha]].

BigBad Akahoshi hires the heroes to protect the village's secret weapon, but then takes measures to recover it himself, then declares them enemies of the Hidden Star Village, in front of a large crowd because they know of their motives. In the finale, everybody comes together, Akahoshi's plan to mutate the children of the village with the power of the meteorite into an army that will help him conquer the other nations is exposed, and he decides to use the meteor by himself to slaughter his own people and the Leaf genin present.\\

'''Instead:''' Nagato's dad is so paranoid about shinobi in general during the war that he takes leave of his senses: he pulls a LeeroyJenkins and bum rushes one of the shinobi, not even so much as speaking to them to make them ease their guard. In fact, he screams angrily. Yeah, like ''that's'' gonna make you look harmless and civilian. The mother says and does nothing to stop him; in fact, had the mother taken the lead and been the one to do the above, in an earnest and maternal voice of protection, the Leaf Shinobi might have been even more inclined and convinced to sympathize and lower their guards and be friendly.\\
'''Result:''' The Leaf shinobi he attacks easily outmaneuvers and slays Nagato's dad, thinking he's an enemy. Then, Nagato's mom is immediately mistaken for a subordinate/partner and slain shielding her son, who neither shinobi could see in the dark. Nagato is orphanized, kills the Leaf as well in a fit of anguish, and set onto the spiraling path of becoming a jaded antagonistic figure who will ultimately die himself because he let being a victim define his life. Neither father nor mother nor son knew well enough to play nice and more tolerant and accepting of things and cool-headed when death was on the line. Nope, they just jumped to conclusions, and as such, got their tickets punched prematurely. All in all, five dead, none of whom had to die.

He'll do Judgements and Executions himself and bear the hatred of all the people towards him. That way the five great countries will be united. But he wants to kill the Bijuus and the five Kages trapped in the Eternal Tsukuyomi and Naruto too since he has the chakra of all the Bijuus. It's his way of preventing the past from interfering.\\

'''Instead:''' Madara decides that the peace between Uchiha and Senju impossible, then makes a nonsensical warning to his clan to leave the village (which they understandably reject) and later the dedicated all his time to studying the Uchiha stone tablet leading to the following one.

Added DiffLines:


* Tobi can teleport wherever he wants on a whim without anyone having any way of actually knowing he's done so until he's there, and them similarly having no actual way of stopping him.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Tobi to appear whenever Naruto leaves the village, ever, and/or is either alone or with only a few people who aren't expecting immediate danger, and try and capture him and replace him with a Zetsu. Hell, Naruto's childhood would have been a perfect time to try it (remember, Naruto was alone most of his life, Iruka and others acknowledging him is a major part of his story arc). Then he can either extract the Kyuubi to use as a weapon, or hold him until the Kyuubi is necessary. Granted, he might not have known what happened to the Kyuubi after his last intrusion into Konoha, but he could have easily infiltrated the village and kept his ears out for any information on the fox.\\
'''Instead:''' Tobi just leaves Naruto alone for 13 years instead of actually trying to capture him. Then sends Itachi and Kisame to try once, then ignores him for 3+ years, particularly while he's out in the world with only Jiraiya to protect him.\\
'''Addendum:''' Obviously this applies to the other 8 Jinchuriki as well, making Akatsuki ultimately totally superfluous in nearly every possible way, aside from unsealing the tailed beasts.
