- When Shikamaru asks Soku to stop using the word "like" in every sentence. She responds with a rather blunt no.
- Temari's way of scolding Shikamaru for almost giving up and joining the enemy is somewhere between this and CMOA. She hits him with a wind blast so powerful, he crashed into the ceiling and then flew all the way across the room before hitting a wall. All he had to say when he got up again -having finally realized he's in love with Temari- was "How troublesome".
- While Shikamaru having a vision of Naruto that helps him fight off the Mind Control jutsu is heartwarming. The fact that the illusion of Naruto only says the single word "ramen" is hilarious.
