- Creator's Favorite: Masashi Kishimoto states that Chocho quickly became his staff's favorite character.
- I Knew It!:
- There were several people who correctly predicted that the DNA test made by Suigetsu was flawed, as well as the explanation of it that Karin was actually Sakura's midwife and that the umbilical cord used for the test actually belonged to Sarada.
- Also, more than a few fans who remembered previous instances of it, quickly called the Trolling Creator theory on the whole affair.
- Jossed: The fan theory that Sarada was in reality Karin's daughter, the author apparently got a good laugh out of it:
- Trolling Creator: The whole "Sarada's real mother" ordeal seems like a laser-guided jab to the upset shipping fans who, post main series finale, dared to suggest that Sarada was in reality the daughter of Karin.
- What Could Have Been: According to the author, there was going to be a flashback scene of Sarada's birth which was actually drawn but it was never included in the final chapter (it was supposed to come when Karin made her I Want My Beloved to Be Happy remark).
