But there's a benefit to being wild and unpredictable; no one has the faintest idea what you're going to do next.' Naruto is a LOT more adventurous when he's younger and the decisions he makes changes the story in huge ways.께!! List of tropes appearing in Drifting께* AccidentalPervert: Naruto is surprised when [[spoiler:Haku]] doesn't attack him for walking in on her getting changed, as she recognizes it was just an accident** Later on, [[spoiler:Samui]] is similarly sane; she only attacked Naruto because he surprised her and was a potential enemy, not because he walked in on her taking a [[WaterfallShower shower]]** Walking in on people when they're in the shower is apparently a common event at his place....--> '''Kin''': THIS IS THE THIRD TIME THIS MONTH! DON'T YOU EVER KNOCK?!* ActionGirl: Most of the Kunoichi and also the female OC, Misora Amaya, she's good enough to be considered for a spot in the Akatsuki.* ActionPet: Swift-chan, Naruto's sparring partner, is a bird world renowned for their speed and agility. * AdaptationalBadass: So many minor characters in canon end up becoming more badass in this fanfic. * AdaptationalHeroism: special mention goes to Tayuya and Kin* AffectionateNickname: [[LadySwearsALot Tayuya]] calls Naruto "shithead"* ArtisticLicensePhysics: During the Chunin exam, it's mentioned that the hot climate of the area prevents lift, keeping them from rigging up a glider. As one technique of gliding is moving from thermal to thermal to keep aloft, this is the exact opposite of how it works in reality. * AscendedExtra: Virtually all of the filler/movie villains are working together and are given much more significance in the plot.* BadassBoast-->'''Naruto (to Yukie)''': I've been fighting against assholes like [[NarutoTheMovieNinjaClashInTheLandOfSnow Doto]] ever since I was kicked out of the orphanage. I've beaten up entire street gangs with my bare fists, fought against whole armies of mercenaries, defeated a girl who was practically a walking slab of metal and one who could literally turn herself into lighting, rescued two countries from a fucker named Gato, and killed an S-Rank nuke nin who wouldn't die no matter how many times you stabbed him in the face. (...) The point is that there's not a single creature on this beautiful ball of water and dirt, living or dead, that I can't beat. Fact.* BadassNormal: The first major opponent that Naruto faces is Crow, a {{muggle}} assassin. He manages to evade the authorities and earn a unusually high bounty for someone without any ninja skills in a world where breathing fire from your mouth is common.%% * TheBeastmaster* BerserkButton: ** Don't harm the ones Naruto cares about. You ''will'' regret it. ** Don't break Crow's mask.* BishonenLine: Moryu's final form is mostly human-looking* BlowYouAway: Much of Naruto's fighting style incorporates his Wind element and special mention goes to his SignatureMove "Jet Hand", which at maximum power can send opponents flying across the continent with just a single touch.* BodySled: Naruto rides Nadare down a mountain [[spoiler:which ends up killing the latter]]--> "SURF'S UP! WOOO!"* ChickMagnet: Naruto has many girls who are attracted to him, usually with him [[RescueRomance rescuing them]].-->"Stuff like this just happens when I go places." * CluelessChickMagnet: Naruto doesn't have a clue about his many admirers for the longest time.* ConfusionFu: Naruto's specialty and main strength.* CorruptCorporateExecutive: ''Gato'' has destroyed the livelihood of entire countries just because he felt like it. * CovertPervert: Isaribi is the one to suggest competing about "bedding" Naruto first* CrazyPrepared: Tenten carries around scrolls with all sorts of things sealed into them, including a huge mass of water. * CuteMonsterGirl: Isaribi.* DanceBattler: Some of Naruto's moves make it look like he's dancing. * DeadlyPrank: Most of Naruto's pranks are meant for fun and enjoyment. He never really tries to hurt or harm anyone. Occasionally, however, he uses his pranks as a form of combat. * DefeatingTheUndefeatable: Naruto is the only genin to have ever defeated [[spoiler:Tsubaki]], although [[spoiler:Samui]] came pretty close to doing it.* DelayedReaction: it takes Naruto some time to register that Shion's death predictions are said to be 100% accurate* {{Determinator}}: Crow should have died a ''long'' time ago. The facts that he had vital injuries and took a knife to the throat and still managed to keep fighting is a credit to his will. * DoorStopper: This is the second longest Naruto story on, at over a million words as of April 2014.* TheDragon: Crow is this to Gato. He is the first major opponent Naruto faces. * DramaticWind: Naruto's "Eiyuu Kaze" (Hero Wind) jutsu is a joke technique he made to make himself look more badass before a fight. [[spoiler: It's later weaponized as he uses this technique to NoSell all of Tsubaki's lightning attacks.]]* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:Kakuzu and Misora]] and Naruto vs Moryu. Helps that the fate of the entire world was literally on the line. * ExactlyWhatIAimedAt: Zabuza's water attack didn't miss, it [[spoiler:washed away Hidan's blood circle]]* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: Gato says this word for word to Naruto when he meets him for the first time. * {{Expy}}: Many of the [[OriginalCharacter OCs]] are these:** Misora Amaya's looks and abilities are based on Uzumi from ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}''.** Kiyoko's [[SuperpowerfulGenetics Kekkei Genkai]] is based on [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Greed's]] powers.** Tsubaki appears to be a bit of a mishmash of various characters from Manga/OnePiece. Her general appearance is based on Nami, while her Kekkei Genkai is based on [[ShockAndAwe Eneru's]] Logia powers. Lastly, some of her move set taken from [[LightEmUp Admiral]] [[LightIsNotGood Kizaru]].* EyeColourChange: Kajiki's eyes turn yellow and slitted when "possessed" by Orochimaru* EyeScream: [[spoiler:Sasuke]] has an eye taken in chapter 32* EyepatchOfPower: after recovering from losing an eye, [[spoiler:Sasuke]] wears one of these* FaceDoodling: Kiba suffers this after a party--> "There's a dick on my face, isn't there?"%%* ForWantOfANail: (frick I've no idea how to explain this)* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:Crow.]]* GoshDarnItToHeck: Kaede is fond of "mother-hubbard"* HairTriggerAvalanche: one of these buries [[spoiler:Hidan]] after he yells for help while [[spoiler:dismembered and embedded in a mountain]]* IControlMyMinionsThrough: [[spoiler:Hiruko]] is respected and feared for his power, treats his followers fairly, and promises to reward them; the first and third reasons are why [[spoiler:Dosu]] joins him* INeedAFreakingDrink: [[spoiler:Kakuzu and Misora]] after the fight with Moryu* ImpossibleTheft: Early on when Naruto faced a trio of [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain incompetent female Chunin]] who had infiltrated the village, he managed to steal [[PantyThief all their underwear]] without taking off or damaging their clothes, or even them noticing until he showed them his "loot".* IntelligibleUnintelligible: Naruto is capable of understanding everything Swift-chan says, even though she's a bird. * IronicEcho: "Hide and clap. Try and find me." [[spoiler:Naruto to Tsubaki]]* LadySwearsALot: Tayuya, just like in canon, has a swear word in every sentence. * LargeHam: Moryu, once he starts feeling threatened--> '''''"Your insolence just cost you this world! I'll blow it all to pieces... AND THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO STOP MEEEEEEEEEE!"'''''* LethalChef: Kaede's cooking looks and smells delicious; it just happens to be inedible. He's really sensitive about it too. %%* MadBomber* MadScientistLaboratory: Naruto has one in order to create his many bombs, fireworks, and paintball pellets he uses for his pranks. %%* MagicMusic* MagnetismManipulation: one of Tsubaki's abilities from her [[ShockAndAwe kekkei genkai]]* MegatonPunch: the result of Naruto's Jet Hand, especially as used on [[spoiler:Hidan]]* MindControlMusic: Tayuya uses her flute in order to cast genjutsu on people.* NotSoStoic: [[spoiler:Tsubaki]] seriously loses her composure when [[spoiler:not only is Naruto able to NoSell her lightning attacks, but he can land solid hits on her too and negate her MadeOfAir abilities]]. What's more, when it becomes clear that [[spoiler:Naruto is winning]], she completely loses it.* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: when the Kyuubi sounds worried and tells Naruto to stay away from [[spoiler:Hidan and Kakuzu]], Naruto ''listens''* OriginalCharacter: Misora, [[LethalChef Kaede]], [[ShockAndAwe Tsubaki]], Kiyoko. Everyone else is canonical, possibly from a movie or filler arc. * ThePrankster: Naruto. %%* PrinceofPranksters* ProfessionalKiller: Crow is an assassin by trade.* PunchedAcrossTheRoom: a common effect of Naruto's Jet Hand* RapunzelHair: Kiyoko has a ''lot'' of hair* RightManInTheWrongPlace: Naruto becomes this in the third chapter when he [[spoiler: saves an entire country from Gato's tyranny]] after getting accidentally knocked out and sent out of the village.* RuleOfCool: Many of the things Naruto does, he does precisely because it would look, sound, or seem cool in some way. * ShirtlessScene: in the second part of the Exams, both Naruto and Sasuke end up taking off their shirts due to the heat. Sakura is... ''appreciative''. * ShockAndAwe: Tsubaki. [[spoiler:Just don't assume that her lightning powers are her only strength.]]* ShoutOut chapter 33, "You have my permission to die."* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: denied by the author, with the Moryu fight--> "...the order doesn't necessarily have to be that every villain the hero fights next is stronger than the last. That's bullshit. Sometimes one of the stronger opponents shows up in the middle and wrecks absolute hell."* SpannerInTheWorks: Naruto is this to Gato. Everything was working out fine for the businessman, until Naruto just happened upon the oppressed country and started screwing things up. * SparedByTheAdaptation: ** Tayuya came back with Naruto to Leaf, and never joined Orochimaru** Haku never fought against Kakashi, and was prevented from committing suicide by a dying Zabuza.** Kin left Sound after being severely injured in the Exams, and also came to Leaf with Naruto.** Everyone who would have died during the Invasion, because it never happened; this includes Hiruzen and the Fourth Kazekage.* SpeaksFluentAnimal: Naruto, although we [[IntelligibleUnintelligible only hear his side of the conversation.]]* SpitTake: Onoki spits out his tea when he realizes who Naruto's father is.* StuffBlowingUp: Naruto's skilled at making bombs for demolition and other things. * StunnedSilence: the reaction Kakuzu gets from the other Akatsuki members after telling them where Hidan is: [[spoiler:"Somewhere to the north. His opponent sent him packing with a technique that put him into low-level flight and sent him across the entire continent."]]* SuperReflexes: A major part of Naruto's taijutsu style is his incredible speed and reflexes. They become so great that [[spoiler:in the Chunin Exam, it culminates in Naruto dodging every single strike from [[RapidFireFisticuffs Neji's 8 Trigrams 64 Palms]] at point blank.]]* TakenForGranite: Ishidate kills [[spoiler:Gato]] by turning him to stone. * TakingYouWithMe: a dying Zabuza, to [[spoiler:Kakuzu]]. It didn't kill him, but it did remove him from the situation. * TelephonePolearm: Naruto attacks [[spoiler:Hidan]] by ''throwing a tree at him''* TournamentArc: The Chunin Exams naturally. [[spoiler: Although with the difference being that all Five of the Great Shinobi Villages participate and the exams themselves take place in Yugakure instead of Konoha.]]* {{Tsundere}}: Tayuya. She gets better and more open about her feelings as time goes by.* VomitDiscretionShot: after the terrifying "ride" ending the second part of the Chunin Exam, Sasuke "puked off-camera".* WorthyOpponent: Crow to Naruto. "Good fight."
