Webcomic / Naru-Hina Chronicles

Go To

Naru-Hina Chronicles by mattwilson83 on DeviantArt is a Naruto fan doujin. As it says, the story mainly revolves around Naruto and Hinata as they start a relationship and face many obstacles and conflicts, like OC villains Seireiko and Nanami, ninja related threats and other such problems. Unusually for a fan-written doujin or indeed any kind of artistic medium, the series has been drawn and produced religiously, with new pages produced almost daily for over ten years since early 2008.

Here is the first chapter... And be prepared to binge read. As of February 2019, the story has over 4,700 pages, spread across over 240 chapters and 30 separate volumes. By way of comparison, this is nearly half of the total output, in terms of page count, of all of the combined Naruto original manga.

Also included are the Mini-sodes/Eroti-sodes. The Mini-sodes are omake/side comics for Naru-Hina Chronicles, detailing minor romantic worldbuilding between Naruto, Hinata, and the rest of the main cast. The cast gradually expands to include Naruto and Hinata's gender-reversed alternate universe selves, Naruko and Hinago, and then later the Yuri-verse versions of Naruko and Hinata. And while the Mini-sodes are generally funny, occasionally they break out the deep pathos and get you right in the feels. Canon status to NHC is questionable at best (although at least one Mini-sode has been referenced in the main NHC comic), but they're best enjoyed as fun little What-Ifs. Generally posted every Friday. Here is the first Mini-sode.

The Eroti-sodes are explicit erotic Mini-sodes posted behind age-verification barriers on Twitter, Pixiv, and Patreon every Monday... but we're not here to talk about the smut, we're here to talk about the gut-busting hilarity of the censored versions posted on Deviantart the same day, chronicling in a (mostly) SFW way the wacky sexual hijinks Naruto and Hinata get suckered into. Here is the first censored Eroti-sode.

    Naru-Hina Chronicles 
  • Accidental Kiss: When Miho pushes Lee out of the way so she can spar with Gai, this results in Lee accidentally kissing Arekusu.
  • Actually Pretty Funny: Naruto smiles and says "Oh, funny." when Hinata says "Believe it." in response to him asking if he really shouts a lot.
  • All Men Are Perverts: This comic lives off this trope and is prepared to have lots of guys having nosebleeds.
  • Almost Kiss:
    • The fourth chapter has Naruto and Hinata almost kissing each other, only for the latter to remember she has to return home for a clan meeting.
    • At the hospital, Sasuke and Sakura almost kiss each other, but they are interrupted by the arrival of a messenger.
    • Sasuke and Sakura are travelling alongside Naruto, Hinata, Kiba, and several other nameless characters to some place for a mission. The former two have a discussion which ends with Sakura telling Sasuke he can tell her anything. They're about to kiss, only to be interrupted, much to their annoyance, by Naruto telling them to get a room.
    • In Chapter 126, Minato and Kushina almost end up kissing each other. However, before they could do so, Kushina suggests to not do that in front of Naruto and Hinata.
  • Alone Among the Couples: In Chapter 47, Choji is surrounded by so many of his friends dancing with their respective lovers, while he himself has no one to dance with. That is until Ino arrives...
  • Alternate Continuity:
    • This comic diverges from canon between the Hunt for Uchiha and Invasion of Pain arcs, when someone utterly wipes out the Akatsuki except for Tobi during Naruto's Toad Sage training.
    • Another divergence is Hinata's knowledge of Naruto being the host of the Kyubi. In canon, she was aware of it during the Hunt for Uchiha arc. NHC takes place after the events of that arc, and yet Hinata in NHC is unaware of Naruto being the host of the Kyubi until Chapter 6.
  • Amazon Brigade: Anko's Angels, an all-female squad leaded and trained by the Snake Lady herself.
  • And This Is for...: While fighting Rokuro, Naruto yells "This is for hurting Hinata-chan you son of a bitch!!!" before punching him.
  • Anger Born of Worry:
    • After Naruto saved Hinata by jumping off a cliff with her, Sakura finds them hours later and checks his injuries. Naruto then notices that Sakura seems angry, to which she responds by doing an angry rant over him being a complete moron for what he's done and how much she and their teammates were worried over whether or not he and Hinata were still alive.
    • Naruto is declared KIA during a mission, causing Hinata to be severely depressed. Several days later, Naruto is revealed to still be alive in Suna and reunites with Shikamaru. When the two of them return to Konoha, Shikamaru forces his friend to keep his face hidden until they see Tsunade, as he doesn't want anyone to freak out over seeing Naruto alive. They come across Hinata and Sakura, the former still sad over thinking about what happened to her boyfriend. When all four of them meet Tsunade at the hospital, Shikamaru finally allows Naruto to reveal himself, much to the shock of everyone else. The first thing Hinata does is to angrily and tearfully slap Naruto for being right behind her and not even saying anything. While crying, she tells him that she hates him for that before saying that she missed him so much.
  • Angry Cheek Puff: Chapter 130 has a flashback where Yuko fought a trio of rogue ninjas. At one point, one of those rogue ninjas said that "she's not much fun". In response to that, Yuko puffed her cheeks, had some Cross-Popping Veins on her forehead, and complained that what he said was "just downright rude!"
  • Ass Shove: When Suigetsu makes fun of her umbrella, Yuko threatens to "shove it where the sun don't shine."
  • At Arm's Length: Yuko tries to grab Kei's mission report so she can see what the latter has written regarding Yuko's performance. However, Kei prevents Yuko from grabbing it by putting her hand on the latter's head.
  • Back from the Dead: Due to Seireiko's experiments, Minato, Kushina, Itachi, Jiraiya, and Asuma come back to life, and the former three play an important role in the story during the second half.
  • Bad Liar:
    • Sakura notices that Naruto is hiding his right arm behind his back and asks what is he hiding. Naruto claims he's not hiding anything and thought he'd just put his hand back there. Soon enough, he admits that he's hiding a gift intended for Hinata.
    • Naruto is waiting for Hinata outside some restaurant. He sees Sakura and Sasuke coming to the same restaurant to have a date, with Naruto considering it to be a coincidence. However, after seeing Mina and Ino coming to the same restaurant with Kiba and Choji respectively, he's getting suspicious and asks them what's going on. Both Sakura and Ino claim this isn't some kind of conspiracy like he thinks this is, but the fact they're both blushing and stuttering while talking to him says otherwise.
    • Hiashi notices Hanabi trying to leave their home even though she's grounded. She claims, while hesitating, that she's just going to the kitchen, but he doesn't buy it. Especially given that she's dressed and cleaned up like she's going on a date.
    • When Tenten meets Kushina for the first time, she freaks out upon coming to the conclusion that the latter is a ghost. Later on, when Kushina comments that Tenten is at least no longer panicking after her initial reaction, Tenten replies "It was... umm... screams of joy, in honor of your return to the world of the living... and... umm... the excitement made me pass out... I'm pregnant, can't handle the surprises, you know. Hahahaha...", all while blushing, sweating, and nervously smiling. Both Kushina and Hinata give her a look that can be summed up as "Seriously? You think we're gonna believe that?", causing Tenten to nervously ask "Wh-What?!"
  • Bait-and-Switch: Neji and Tenten find Lee and Gai glaring at each other. At first glance, it looks like the latter two are about to have an epic fight. However, right after they scream and look like they're about to start their fight, it turns out they were just playing a game of Rock–Paper–Scissors.
    • Something extremely similar happens when Lee is shown interacting with Miho for the first time several chapters later.
  • Bait-and-Switch Comment:
    • Hinata initially thought that Hiashi wouldn't approve of her dating Naruto because of Hyuga standards, even going so far as to lie to her father while her boyfriend was present by claiming he's just a friend. After she explains the whole situation to Hiashi, he replies that he indeed does not approve... of her lying to him while Naruto was present. He then tells her to go apologize to Naruto and that he expects them to be present at the Hyuga residence the next day so they can have a talk and lay down ground rules.
    • While Kakashi is on a mission with Team Gai, Rokuro steals his body in order to infiltrate Konoha. However, Kakashi had memorized Icha Icha Paradise and takes this opportunity to recite it to Rokuro. Eventually, the latter has enough and yells at Kakashi to shut up already, causing Team Gai to be confused at "Kakashi":
      Gai: Oh?! Why didn't I see it before. I know why you're so acting strange.
      Rokuro: Ummm... You do!? [thinking] Damn it. He knows I'm inhabiting Kaka...
      Gai: [smiling and pointing at "Kakashi"] Yes! We haven't had a challenge in a while. And our rivalry is so powerful, you're eager for more.
      Rokuro: [Sweat Dropping] Err... Umm... Sure Gai... That's it.
  • Beach Episode: Chapter 43, which is the start of a vacation arc, focuses on Naruto and his True Companions having fun together at some beach in a resort town. Among other things, Gaara builds a sandcastle that results in Shikamaru having Blank White Eyes given its size, while Naruto and Kiba both have a Nosebleed upon seeing Hinata and Mina in their swimsuits.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Several groups of rogue ninjas have claimed to be the Akatsuki in the years since the actual Akatsuki disappeared. In the flashback from Chapter 130, Yuko met one of those groups and called them "Fakesuki" as she sees them as nothing more than two-bit rogues:
    Yuko: You and posers just like you have been a nuisance to the shinobi nations for a while; a nuisance, but not a problem. Not one 'Akatsuki' copycat group has ever lived up to the reputation they stole.
  • The Big Damn Kiss:
    • Being the main couple, Naruto and Hinata have several of these:
    • After Naruto is able to give the cure for Mina's disease before she could die, Mina wakes up while being on an hospital bed and is greeted by Kiba smiling at her. She smiles back and says she wants a kiss from her boyfriend. Kiba says "Well. Since you asked so nicely." and they kiss each other while wrapping their arms around each other, the two of them relieved they were able to make it through this severe situation.
    • Neji makes the mistake of proposing to Tenten so soon after learning that she's pregnant. This upsets Tenten as he gives the impression that he only wants to marry her for that one reason. The next day, he goes to her appartment and tells her he's been thinking about it. He apologizes to her before saying that he doesn't care if they get married or not and if they have a child or not. After Neji tells her how much he loves her, Tenten is touched by it and she passionately kisses him. He kisses her back and puts his arms around her, both of them relieved that they were able to get past this disagreement.
    • Ino tells Choji how much she's scared about their relationship given that her previous relationships with other boys ended up poorly. She's afraid that it could ruin their friendship. Choji tells her "Those other guys... they didn't see what they had, or who they had within their reach. I've known you for a long time and... I see you for who you are and... it's beautiful. Inside and outside." Ino looks at him in surprise over what he said before asking him to "[c]ome down here for a moment." She then rises from her feet and kisses him with more passion than with any of their previously-shown kisses.
  • Big Damn Reunion:
    • The final page of Chapter 3 and a good chunk of Chapter 4 focus on Sakura being reunited with Sasuke after the latter decided to return to Konoha for the first time since his Face–Heel Turn, with Naruto joining the reunion halfway through Chapter 4.
    • Naruto and Hinata have one after the former was declared KIA during a mission, only coming back to Konoha over 11 days later.
    • In-universe, Naruto has written an Icha Icha novel where the hero and the heroine have this kind of reunion. When reading the chapter that features said reunion, Naruto imagines himself and Hinata as the hero and the heroine respectively.
  • Big "OMG!": This is Kiba's reaction when he realizes that he accidentally grabbed Hinata's left breast instead of her left hand.
  • Big "WHAT?!":
    • Both Sakura and Ino do this upon seeing Naruto asking Hinata out on a date for the first time.
    • This is Naruto's reaction when being told by Shikamaru that he was declared KIA 11 days ago (with Naruto suffering from memory losses due to the explosion that seemingly killed him).
    • Sakura does this when Naruto reveals that he's trying to propose to Hinata, after the latter and her girl friends thought he was going to break up with her.
    • Sasuke, Sakura, Naruto, Hinata, Miho, and Yuko all exclaim "SAY WHAAAAAAAA?!" when Kei agrees to let Sai touch her breast.
    • In a flashback from Chapter 131, this was Minato's reaction upon learning from Tsunade that Naruto was unaware of who were his parents until a couple of weeks ago.
  • Blatant Lies: In Chapter 128, Tsunade comments that it always surprised her that Jiraiya never took Minato and Naruto on his "missions" (i.e. peeping). In response to that comment, Minato appears in a chibified look, blushes, and has a big opened mouth while saying "Whaaaat?! Nooooo~ Of course not!" However, Naruto looks confused at what his father just said and says that Jiraiya told him he did that with Minato.
  • Blunt "Yes": Hinata complains to Naruto about how the latter didn't seem to be putting much of a fight when dealing with Nanami. He asks her "What did you expect me to do... Hit her?", and she replies with this trope.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: When Naruto is angsting over his parents having limited time among the living, he tells Hinata that he sometimes believes in destiny, saying that maybe this is his punishment for having a good life and that he's destined to be alone. Reminding him that he's always fought against destiny, Hinata tells him he should do what he always do, which is to look ahead, slam his hand on the counter and shout out, 'I make my own fate!' Naruto then asks her if he really shouts a lot, to which she replies while giggling "Believe it.", which was his catchphrase in the English dub of the anime. Smiling, he replies "Oh funny."
  • Breaking the Bonds: In Chapter 112, Sakura is chained to a wall after being captured by Evil Sasuke. A few chapters later, she uses her chakra to break free from the chains.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: In the second chapter, in the panel where Sakura and Ino are doing their Big "WHAT?!", Kiba asks Shino "Why are we over here?", only for the latter to reply "I wanted to be in the picture."
  • Bridal Carry:
    • After Mina manages to save Akamaru, she is unable to move and tells Kiba to leave her in the forest that they are currently. Kiba decides against it and carries her in his arms.
    • Hinata faints after imagining herself as Naruto's wife following a comment from Tenten. When she wakes up, she finds herself being carried by Naruto in his arms while Tenten is carrying their shopping bags. Hinata tells Naruto he doesn't have to carry her, but he says it's OK given that he enjoys holding her.
  • Buffy Speak: During a picnic with Hinata, Naruto has an "Eureka!" Moment that makes him exclaim "SO IT'S OFF TO... Err... THE PLACE WHERE THE BOOKS ARE!!", with the Hyuga correctly guessing that he means the library.
  • Call-Back: Besides most chapters making references to events that happened in either previous chapters or the canon manga, some chapters also mention events from the anime Filler episodes, such as the Mizuki Strikes Back arc or the Search for the Bikōchū arc. Even the first movie is given a nod when Arekusu mentions Director Makino from that movie in Chapter 78.
  • Call-Forward:
    • Chapter 45 is a Whole Episode Flashback taking place during the canonical Time Skip that Naruto spent training with Jiraiya. At the end of that chapter, Jiraiya asked Naruto about the book the latter was writing, which was first shown in Chapter 24.
    • Chapter 66 has a flashback set during the canonical time skip. In that flashback, Hinata had her Part 1 design, but her hair was slightly longer. She mentioned that she was thinking about growing her hair down to her waist, which is of course how long her hair became after said time skip.
    • The flashback from Chapter 134 shows Tsunade kissing Naruto on his forehead when he was a baby. This brings to mind when she kissed him on his forehead over a decade later during the Search for Tsunade arc.
  • Cat Fight: In one chapter, Hinata confronts Naruto about the compromising position she found Nanami and him in. While Naruto manages to convince her it was not what she thought it was, she still states if Nanami were still present, she would "Jyuuken her skinny little a-" before she catches herself.
    • In a later volume, Nanami and Hinata finally have it out. Several of Nanami's strikes do severe damage to Hinata's dress, threatening to expose a few intimate parts to the public.
  • Change the Uncomfortable Subject:
    • Naruto tries to talk about Hinata's outfit after his fiancée witnessed his then-latest encounter with Nanami.
    • When Mina tries to convince Kei to go on a date with Sai, Kei asks her if she managed to have sex with Kiba yet. Mina blushes and remains silent for a moment before saying they should continue eating their ice cream:
  • Chekhov's Gun: A couple.
    • The Namekaze scroll is something Seireiko desperately wants.
    • Something happened at Seireiko's base in the Nation of Steel, and Naruto is not okay. We catch glimpses of body horror, and bloodshed, and the Fox Contract, but a whole picture and its effects on Naruto is still unclear. Whatever happened was enough to severely unsettle Minato and Kakashi will not finalize Naruto's ANBU training until a professional takes a look in Naruto's head.
  • Chirping Crickets: A tumbleweed rolls by in front of Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke when Sai asks Anko's Angels if he could examine their breasts sizes. Bonus point for having Kosuke chasing after the tumbleweed.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Naruto asks Sai to think about the similarities between the various girls he dated. This is followed by a panel showing eight girls with ponytails (one of them being Ino) all slapping Sai in the exact same way. The black-haired young man wonders if that means he likes being slapped, only for Naruto to be exasperated and say that his friend has a thing for girls with ponytails instead.
  • Conjunction Interruption: During one mission, Naruto and Sasuke have a disagreement over the latter wanting to use the former's jacket to cover the naked Itachi. This goes on until Sakura has enough and yells at them to quit it while making a Comical Angry Face. Both Naruto and Sasuke tell her "But, Sakura...", only to be interrupted by her shouting "No 'But's!"
  • Corner of Woe:
    • Both Naruto and Sasuke do it when Tsunade reminds them that they're both still Genin (Naruto overslept and missed the previous Chunin Exams, while Sasuke was on probation and wasn't allowed to take them at all).
    • Naruto does this again after Ichiro found an item that Naruto needed for the Chunin Exams while in the Forest of Death.
    • Shino does it as well when he thinks that Naruto finds him boring after the blond-haired ninja admitted that Shino talking about bugs the other day was a little boring.
    • Mina goes to that corner when she takes it the wrong way while Naruto is trying to compliment her beauty.
    • Naruto does this once again when Tsunade makes him realize he was waiting at the hospital to get some results regarding some thieves for nothing.
    • Shino returns to that corner when Hinata is surprised to learn that he has a date.
    • Anko goes to that corner when Kei ignores her suggestion of having a night on the town after the mission.
  • Creator Cameo:
    • On page 471, from Chapter 25, mattwilson83 has drawn himself in the second panel, standing next to Sasuke.
    • He makes another cameo on page 1519, from Chapter 78. On that page, he appears as a cashier working at the movie theater.
  • Curse Cut Short:
    • While Sasuke is fighting Rokuro inside of Naruto's mind, we get this exchange:
      Sasuke: What the...?! Are you saying you could have left Naruto's body at any point? Why you son of a...
      Rokuro: Of course I could have.
    • Naruto tells Hinata he can leave the hospital and get some ramen without Sakura knowing about it. However, he doesn't realize Sakura is right behind him while he's saying that:
      Naruto: [smirking to Hinata] Don't worry about it. I know exactly out to sneak out of here. There's no way she'll catch me. She wouldn't know I was out of my room unless I walked up right behind her and kicked her right in her skinny little...
      Hinata: [nervously points behind him while having Blank White Eyes and a Sweat Drop]
      Naruto: Huh?! Hinata? What are you point... [suddenly makes an Oh, Crap! face] She's right behind me isn't she?
      Sakura: [angrily smirking] Yes I am. Me and my skinny little... ass were you going to say?
    • When Hinata is complaining to Naruto about how the latter didn't seem to be putting much of a fight when dealing with Nanami:
      Naruto: Aww... N-No... You got it all wrong. I... I was taken by surprise. What did you expect me to do... Hit her?
      Hinata: [turning around to face him and looking angry] YES... YOU SHOULD HAVE. IF SHE WAS STILL HERE, I'D JYUUKEN HER SKINNY LITTLE A...
      [Naruto looks chibified and has Blank White Eyes while having a hard time believing Hinata is really saying that.]
      Hinata: [suddenly blushing and doing her trademark Shy Finger-Twiddling upon realizing what she said] Oh... U-Umm... Sorry Naruto. I guess I got a little angry. F-Forgive me.
    • Naruto has a conversation with Kakashi and Sai regarding a jutsu that could be useful for a mission. When the blond ninja says he always tries his best:
      Sai: [making a large innocent smile] Yes, but could you try even harder than that? We have limited time.
      Naruto: [frowning] What's that supposed to mean, Sai?
      Sai: You get distracted by Hinata.
      Naruto: So... She's beautiful. Is it now a crime?
      Sai: No, I mean you get distracted by wanting to use your pe...
      Kakashi: [smiling] OK, you two. We don't have time for this kind of discussion.
    • While fighting Jugo, Miho is in pain and says "Son of a...", only to be interrupted by her opponent hitting her.
    • Karin exclaims "No! You crazy son of a... Don't mix them!!" to Evil Sasuke when he decides to drink multiple specialized chemicals at once to become stronger and defeat the real Sasuke.
    • When Yuko finds Suigetsu and Jugo to ask them to give her information about Seireiko, Jugo agrees only if she shares some information with them. Suigetsu then says "Yeah. Tell us where that ponytailed bit...", only to be interrupted by Yuko shooting a pellet from her umbrella at his head. He survives given that his body is made of water, but she forgot about that detail.
  • Defensive "What?":
    • After Sasuke accidentally convinces Naruto to join the ANBU, Sakura frowns at her boyfriend and says "Oh... Way to convince him, Sasuke!" He replies with this trope.
    • This is Tenten's reaction when both Hinata and Kushina give her a skeptical look after she tried to explain her panicking reaction to meeting the temporarily resurrected Kushina.
  • Delayed Reaction:
    • Kei asks Mina if Sai normally goes around feeling breasts like a pervert. Mina explains Sai's behavior, only to be shocked several seconds later when she realizes that Kei allowed him to touch her breasts.
    • After a training session, Moegi tells Udon that he can't buy her lunch if he just stands there:
      Udon: Oh, right, I... Hey, wait! Why am I buying lunch?!
      Moegi: I'm a lady, and you should treat a lady. Aren't you a gentleman?
      Udon: [thinking] ...Err... Yeah... Sure.
  • Designated Girl Fight:
    • In Chapters 76 and 77, Sakura fights Karin in response to the latter stabbing the former and leaving her to die in Chapter 75, all while Sasuke is busy dealing with Evil Sasuke.
    • In Chapter 107, Sasuke is fighting his evil clone. Sakura is about to intervene and help her boyfriend, only for Karin to prevent her from doing so by fighting her.
  • Distracted by the Sexy:
    • While on vacation, Tenten doesn't pay enough attention to Ino because she's too distracted by Neji swimming nearby.
    • When Hinata tells Naruto that she's done with the shower, he replies to her only to interrupt himself when he sees her wearing nothing but a towel. He ends up making a perverted face and giggling upon seeing her like that.
    • After a visit from Kakashi and Sai, Naruto is explaining to Hinata what Sai just did. However, the blond ninja interrupts himself when he sees his fiancée wearing a shirt that reveals a significant percentage of her cleavage.
    • While sparring with Arekusu, Lee is distracted by her beauty long enough for her to punch him in the face.
  • Door Stopper: As seen in the description, this comic's number of pages is literally in the thousands.
  • Double Date:
    • After learning that Sasuke and Sakura will have their first date together, Naruto suggests that he should go get Hinata so they can have a double date together. His two friends decline, preferring to have their first date just the two of them alone.
    • Over a year later, the two couples do have a double date after Naruto returns to Konoha following a mission where he was presumed to be KIA. It begins with Sasuke and Sakura joining Naruto and Hinata for some lunch at Ichiraku. Then, after Naruto and Sakura have to go to the hospital for a check-up, the four of them go watch a chick flick at a movie theater. Both Hinata and Sakura end up enjoying the movie, while Naruto ends up falling asleep and Sasuke has a painfully bored look while watching it.
  • Double Entendre: Sai and Kei discussing a mission briefing. Poor Naruto almost gets his brain broken trying not to say anything.
  • Embarrassing Old Photo: Shikamaru really hated it when his mother showed pictures from his childhood to Temari.
  • Enemy Without:
    • Due to the messing of Seireiko's ritual, all of the hatred and anger inside Sasuke got stuck inside a clone of him.
    • Seireiko weaponizes this trope with his Dark Soul Shadow Clone. It creates a clone of an individual that only has their negative traits, and this causes the clone to feel the uncontrollable need to kill the original. Said clones also have Black Eyes of Crazy.
  • "Eureka!" Moment:
    • Shizune needs to find someone who can be a messenger in charge of running important messages between Konoha and Suna, or else she'll have to do that job herself. She asks Naruto if he's willing to do that, but he declines, much to her disappointment. Naruto then wishes he knew someone who wanted to go to Suna alone, only to immediately realize that Shikamaru might be that person. The latter accepts the job, as it will allow him to spend more time with Temari, although Naruto never even thought about that and only assumed Shikamaru would accept it just because he doesn't mind being by himself and the job requires little work.
    • During a picnic with Hinata in Chapter 90, Naruto has a conversation with her that leads to him having an idea regarding a jutsu he's practicing.
    • In Chapter 95, Naruto has an epiphany regarding his jutsu after Hinata says "I guess if we are both feeling it... then we must be one...". However, he mispronounces it as "an apipananny".
  • Everyone Has Standards: In Chapter 89, Naruto tells Hinata a story from when he was a kid. One day, some mother pushed him away when he tried to befriend her kids at a park. However, Naruto was right next to some stairs and pushing him resulted in him being knocked down those stairs and getting injured in the process. Later on, the mother apologized to him, as she didn't mean to knock him down those stairs.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Tayuya has a hard time understanding why Mina is willing to help her even though they're supposed to be enemies.
  • Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: While discussing with Naruto about a job, Shikamaru notices that his friend is holding a bag:
    Shikamaru: Hey, Naruto. What's in the bag?
    Naruto: Huh?! Oh this?! It's a present for Hinata's bir... OH CRAP! I'M SUPPOSED TO MEET HER!
  • Face Fault: Naruto suggests to Hinata they can go eat anywhere, even at some place other than Ichiraku for once. She chooses to go to a teahouse, to which he agrees and he's already on his way to a teahouse. However, he stops walking and sheepishly asks her if she knows where one is, causing Hinata to do this trope.
  • Facepalm:
  • Failure Montage: When Naruto asks Sai to think about the similarities between all the girls he dated, it leads to a panel showing eight girls (one of them being Ino) slapping Sai on his face in the exact same way.
  • Flirtatious Smack on the Ass:
    • Sasuke does this to Sakura when the latter is saying what follows to Naruto:
      Sakura: And you know... It's rude to sneak up on your AAHH!
      [She blushes after Sasuke pinches her butt.]
      Sasuke: [smirking at her] Yeah. It's not nice to sneak up people and surprise them.
    • Choji does this to Ino while they're walking around Konoha. Surprised by that, she blushes and smiles at him while telling him to watch those hands of his.
    • After Hinata gives a Motivational Kiss to Naruto, the latter gets excited to resume his training and pulls his fiancée along pretty fast. She complains about it, saying "N-Naruto!! Slow down, don't pull me so fast!! I give you one kiss and you get excited!" He replies with "Don't you know it. Rawr!" before pinching her butt, making her reply "Eeep!! N-Naruto!! Th-That's not what I meant."
  • Forceful Kiss:
    • In his first appearance, Yori forcefully kisses Tenten, much to the latter's displeasure.
    • When she first meets Naruto, Nanami is so attracted by him that she kisses him, even after he tells her that he has a girlfriend.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • Naruto is upset that Tsunade can't use any jutsu to make him remember stuff he forgot due to his amnesia, but she tells him she just wants to protect him from any more harm. Tsunade then notices he's smiling and asks him why he's doing that. Naruto replies that he kinda feels like she's his mother when she's acting all caring like that. Several chapters later, he accepts to become her adopted son.
    • In Chapter 46, three masked ninja are with a group of captives. One of the masked ninja take a look at one of the women among the captives and is reminded of Kurenai. Several chapters later, it's revealed that this one masked ninja in question is none other than a resurrected Asuma.
  • Funny Background Event:
    • After Naruto returns to Konoha after being declared KIA during a mission, he learns that Sasuke really missed him during those days where he was presumed dead. With a big smug grin, Naruto takes this opportunity to tease his friend over it, much to Sasuke's annoyance. Soon enough, one panel shows Hinata and Sakura having a discussion, while in the background Sasuke has put Naruto in a headlock while the latter is laughing:

At one point, he said he got an idea on how to make everyone in Konoha like him and pointed in one direction. She looked up and realized he was pointing at the Hokage Rock.

However, Gaara says that Kankuro once told him about how, when she was about two or three years old, she hated wearing dresses and would remove them whenever and wherever she had the chance.

Our lives may have been different, but we both desired the same thing. We both sought to be recognized. The two of us wanted to become shinobi to prove to our families and the world just how strong we are. I'm sure you've noticed it too, when it came to the thugs we've taken on, during missions. Always letting their guards down and calling us weak, and for what? Being women?

    Naruto: [drooling while having stars in his eyes] I can still taste those Hinata-shaped cookies.

    • Naruto is a victim of this trope when he gets attacked by three pups.
  • The Big Damn Kiss:
    • After another one of their dates, Hinago walks Naruko all the way home. With a smile and a slight blush, she asks him "So what now?" This is followed by Hinago giving to Naruko a kiss far more passionate than any of the few ones these two had in previous Mini-sodes. What makes this even more notable is this is the first time where Hinago is the one who initiates the kiss instead of Naruko.
    • Naruko and Hinata from the Yuri-verse ended up doing this type of kiss right after they confessed their love to each other.
  • Blazing Inferno Hellfire Sauce: Naruto is surprisingly an okay cook, although he douses his cooking in this to Hinata's chagrin.

    • This is Sakura's reaction when she comes to the conclusion that Naruto might enjoy it a little too much whenever she physically hurts him.
    • Naruto and Hinata decide to check up on Tsunade given that she's been focused on trying to help the still unconscious Jiraiya so much. When Naruto opens the door, he and his girlfriend see Tsunade sitting on top of Jiraiya, with her vest revealing her bare right shoulder as if like she was about to have sex with him. She notices the presence of the young ninjas before saying "I'm... checking his vitals..." The Uzumaki then closes the door without entering the room. Both he and Hinata are stunned while he, after saying earlier on that he doesn't want to see Tsunade sad, comments that he didn't want to see that either.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: In the 50th Mini-sode, Naruto and Hinata are kissing each other. After the kiss is over, she asks him if they gave their watchers what they wanted.
  • Call-Back: During their day at the lake, Hinata does a move that reminds Naruto of a dream he had on a mission of a naked girl dancing in a waterfall (it was from the Search for the Bikōchū filler arc, and it was very much real). Hinata immediately becomes flustered as she can't believe that Naruto remembers that.
  • Cat Fight: At a lake, Sakura, Ino, and Tenten (who are all wearing swimsuits) have a fight that turn into a Big Ball of Violence over which one between them is the hottest. The guys look at them while this is happening and Naruto comments "I wanna look away... but I can't."
  • Christmas Episode: Between the 70th and the 71th strips, there is a Christmas strip (labeled a Christmas Special) that was published on December 24, 2015. It focuses on Hinata attending a Christmas party alongside many of her friends and waiting for Naruto to be back, presumably from a mission.
  • Comically Missing the Point:
    • When Hiashi decides to have a talk with Naruto regarding the latter's perverted reputation, the young ninja constantly misses the point of what the Hyuga Clan Head is asking:
      Hiashi: With such a reputation, I am sure you know much about the habits of... romantically involved adults. So... Umm... Please tell me... *Ahem* what it is you know.
      Naruto: Wow, I thought you would know. But OK... When a man and a woman...
      Hiashi: No, no. I know about it. I just want to know what you know. And if you are looking into wanting sex.
      Naruto: M-Mr. Hyuga, I'm not sure I'm your type.
      Hiashi: [making a Comical Angry Face] N-Not with me, you idiot!
      Naruto: [smiling and blushing] That's a relief. Then with who?
      Hiashi: With Hinata!
      Naruto: Wow, you're really giving me permission? You're not as mean as I thought, you're pretty awesome!
      Hiashi: [making an even bigger comical angry face] I'm not giving you permission! You're not touching my daughter!
      Naruto: [making a comical angry face himself] Then why were you asking if I wanted to?!
      Hiashi: I wasn't!
    • Hinago's mother orders her son to invite Naruko so she can judge the Uzumaki girl. When Hinago meets Naruko to tell her about it:
      Hinago: [with tears in his eyes] Mother wants you to come to dinner. *Sniff* If you do not come, she may not let me see you anymore!
      Naruko: Wow... Mealtimes sound pretty important at your place!
  • Cranial Eruption:
    • A snake gets one after touching Sakura's butt and getting punched by her when she thought it was Naruto touching her with his penis.
    • While sitting next to the still unconscious Jiraiya, Tsunade decides to essentially relieve the old days by grabbing his hand and making him touch her breast before calling him a pervert and punching his forehead, resulting in a lump on his head.
  • Denser and Wackier: They are far more comedic than the main NHC series, similar to how Rock Lee's Springtime of Youth is more comedic than the main Naruto series.

  • Distaff Counterpart: Everyone from the Alternate Universe, but especially Naruko, Hinago, and Hinago's mother (for Naruto, Hinata, and Hiashi, respectively). Only Naruko from the Yuri-verse is one.

  • Dress Hits Floor: Hinago goes to Naruko's home for a sleepover. While there, he thinks she's wearing a yukata. However, she reveals that she's actually wearing a bath robe and she's about to take a shower. The next panel is a shot of her legs while her robe hits the floor, with Hinago having a major Nosebleed upon seeing her naked.
  • Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: When Naruto and Hinata are babysitting Kurenai's baby AJ, Hinata is smiling tenderly at Naruto playing with the baby. At one point, the Uzumaki gives to the baby a shuriken. The Hyuga continues to smile and says "Aww, he's playing with a shuri..." before making an over-the-top panicking face upon realizing what her boyfriend gave to AJ.
  • Fanservice: A regular feature, especially of the Eroti-sode censors. Of special note is Sakura removing Hinata's coat for Naruto's birthday. Using nothing but her teeth.
  • Flirtatious Smack on the Ass: Naruko from the Yuri-verse does this to her Hinata in one Mini-sode.
  • Fog Feet: When Shizune reveals to Tsunade that the law forbidding anyone discussing Naruto as the Nine-Tailed Fox has never been revoked even after Naruto showed his powers during the Chunin Exams, Tsunade asks why it wasn't repealed. The next panel shows Hiruzen Sarutobi in the sky as a ghost with a halo and this type of feet, saying "Don't look at me... I died." Minato and Kushina are also present with the same appearance, both of them frowning at the Third Hokage and Kushina saying he could have at least repealed it when her son found out, to which Sarutobi replies that he was busy.
  • French Maid Outfit: When Hinata asks Sakura and Ino some advice on how to make Naruto tell her that he loves her, Sakura suggests to make some instant ramen for him.

  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: Hanabi has a shoulder angel and a shoulder devil when she hesitates over causing some trouble to Naruto and Hinata by claiming to Hiashi that the baby they're taking care of is their secret love child (when in reality it's Kurenai's baby they're babysitting).
  • Guilt by Association Gag: After Hanabi pulls a prank by claiming to Hiashi that Hinata and Naruto had a baby together (when in reality they were simply babysitting Kurenai's baby), she tells Konohamaru that they must be on guard for reprisals from her sister and the Uzumaki. Konohamaru asks Hanabi why she's dragging him into her problems even though he didn't do anything and she replies that it's because he's her boyfriend.
  • Hand Gagging: Naruko, Naruto's female clone, does this to Hinata while kidnapping the latter from behind.
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    • Sakura gets on Hinata's case for being so lovesick with Naruto when she's already that with Sasuke.

    • During a fight between Naruto and Lee, Hinata is encouraging the former while Arekusu is encouraging the latter. They both comment on how the boys are quite competitive. The girls then agree that they can support the boys without being competitive themselves. However, they immediately do so anyway in the next panel.
    • In the gender-reversed alternate universe, Tsunade's male counterpart becomes aware of Naruko barging into the Hyuga's home and chewing out Hinago's mother. The Hokage tells the Uzumaki "It's just plain rude. And if you have an issue with someone, then just remain calm and talk it out in a civil manner." Naruko then reveals that Hinago's mother thinks the Uzumaki is only worthy of being Hinago's mistress, like "some kind of whore to be used by him". Upon hearing that, Tsunade's male counterpart does not remain calm and does not talk in a civil manner to Hinago's mother.
  • I'm Standing Right Here: While in a lake, a snake touches Sakura's butt. She thinks it's Naruto touching her with his penis given that he just jokingly warned Hinata about a 'snake' poking her, resulting in the pink-haired girl angrily punching the actual snake. Upon seeing the latter, she's horrified and says "Ehh?! A-A-A real snake?! Snakes are creepy!" Sasuke, who is just nearby, frowns and exclaims "Hey! I work with snakes!"
  • Imposter Forgot One Detail: Nanami decides to get Naruto's attention by disguising herself as Hinata. When she tries to convince him to go with her to some hotel, he's not fooled at all and tells her she didn't quite get Hinata right, although without elaborating about it. For one thing, Nanami didn't have the Hyuga's Byakugan eyes (it looks like she didn't think about having any contact lenses that would give the impression she has those eyes), but she also acted in a much bolder way than how Hinata would usually behave.
  • Innocent Innuendo:
    • While Naruto is absent for a mission, Hinata takes this opportunity to use her toy. The way she's talking about it, it sounds like it's some kind of sex toy. However, it turns out to be a life-sized Naruto doll she uses to snuggle against.
    • During a sleepover, Hinago asks Naruko if, for dinner, she has enough to satisfy them both. He says that he knows how she gets when she starts, that she can really be intense and go at it for a while. Naruko tells Hinago to not worry about it and adds, while making a seductive face, "Because, Sweety, it's all you can eat!" However, she then holds a pair of vouchers in her hand and says she feels sorry for the BBQ restaurant for giving them out.
  • Instantly Proven Wrong: With some help from Hinata and Lee, Naruto tries to find Naruko, his female clone. The Uzumaki comments that she could easily stay hidden for as long as she wants and that they'll never find her. However, this is immediately followed by some guy mentioning to someone else that Naruko is making an impromptu bikini contest. Both Naruto and Hinata are stunned to hear that, while Lee exclaims "Or we could follow those people!"
  • Kidnapped from Behind: Naruto, Hinata, and Lee try to find Naruko, Naruto's female clone, who is making an impromptu bikini contest. However, Naruko gags Hinata with her hand and pulls her away, with Naruto and Lee not noticing it before it's too late.
  • Kill It with Fire: Naruto receives a letter from Nanami that comes with several pictures of her. One of them is a folded up one that makes Naruto blush upon seeing it. When Hinata sees it, she makes a Comical Angry Face and angrily yells "BURN IT! BURN IT!!"
  • Lampshade Hanging: During a sleepover at Naruko's home, Hinago tells her he didn't want to assume they were sharing the same bed, hence why he brought a sleeping bag:
    Naruko: [smiling] Oh come now Hinago, you know you can sleep with me whenever you want.
    Hinago: [blushing and having Blank White Eyes] R-Really?! Wait... You do mean just sleep... right?
    Naruko: [also blushing and having blank white eyes] Huh?! Oh! I err... I-I guess that did come out a little awkward, heh-heh!
  • Literal Split Personality: One arc focuses on Naruto's Shadow Clones becoming real with different personalities. They include a female version, a smart one, an aggressive one, a flirty one, and one who keeps eating ramen.
  • Love Confession:
    • At the end of one of his dates with Naruko, Hinago nervously tells her that he loves her. She then kisses him on the cheek and leaves. However, when she's alone, Naruko ends up crying, saying she had no idea how to react given that no one ever said that to her.
    • Naruko and Hinata from the Yuri-verse confessed their love to each other on the day Naruko left Konoha for her three years-long journey with Jiraiya.

    • During a heated argument between Hinata and Nanami, Naruto is subject to this by both girls. Eventually, his head gets crushed by both girls' breasts, making him have a major Nosebleed.
    • Naruko does this to Hinago a few times. The first time is to keep herself warm given how hot Hinago becomes in such situation. The second time is while telling him that he has no idea how much seeing him stick up for her means to her.
  • Mistaken for Incest: Hanabi is granted permission to call Naruto her big brother. As it turns out, she asked for it just to pull a prank: When Naruto is kissing Hinata, Hanabi takes this opportunity to yell "EWWW! MY SISTER IS SMOOCHING MY BROTHER!" Several bystanders hear what she just yelled and fall for it. This results in Hinata fainting once again, Naruto being angry at Hanabi, and the latter running away while laughing.
  • Mistaken for Transformed: Hanabi pulls a prank by claiming to Hiashi that Hinata and Naruto had a baby together (when in reality they were simply babysitting Kurenai's baby). Later on, she comes across her father and thinks it's actually Naruto pulling a prank on her (who transformed into Hiashi to pull a prank on her in a previous Mini-sode) as a revenge for her own prank. She then starts insulting Hiashi right in front of him, only to realize her mistake when the real Naruto appears nearby.
  • Mood Whiplash:
    • Hinago's Love Confession is adorable, but it leaves Naruko weeping in private, barely able to understand why, and at a complete loss as for how to respond.
    • Right after shoving his face into her breasts, Naruko expresses how much she genuinely appreciates Hinago for sticking up for her, telling him that he has no idea how much it means to her.
    • In one Mini-sode, Naruto and Hinata have a romantic moment where they are drawn in a more realistic style and he declares how much he loves her. Then, the final panel shows Sakura and Sasuke in chibified form, the former having blank white eyes, the latter frowning and asking why are Naruto and Hinata always acting so weird (while the Uzumaki and the Hyuga themselves are back to being drawn in a chibified form and making a cartoony smooch to each other).
  • Most Definitely Not a Villain: During an undercover mission, Naruto takes on the appearance of Hinata and spends the night with an hotel manager while the real Hinata is investigating the hotel. At one point, Naruto tries to find an excuse to leave without giving off any suspicion. After getting an idea, he then asks the manager "Hey, I need to go take a piss, I won't be long. But, where's the girls room, cuz, you know, I'm a girl. I pee sitting down and everything." Taken aback at first by the coarse language, the manager doesn't realize yet who "she" really is and reveals where the girls room is.
  • Mundane Utility: Naruto using the Kage Bunshin makes moving day a breeze along with delivery services. He also uses his clones to regularly pamper Hinata.
  • My Eyes Are Up Here: During an undercover mission, Naruto takes on the appearance of Hinata and spends the night with an hotel manager while the real Hinata is investigating the hotel. At one point, the Uzumaki notices the manager staring at his breasts with a pervy face and pushes the manager's chin upward while frowning and telling him "Eyes up Mister! If you wanna look at me, look at my face."
  • Naked People Are Funny: When Naruto accidentally creates clones with different personalities, one of them is Naruko, his female version that represents his Sexy Jutsu. At one point, she decides to completely get rid of her clothes, leaving herself naked. When she runs past Tenten and Temari, the latter two both have Blank White Eyes at her sight (and so do several nearby guys).
  • Never Gets Drunk: Type 3b. Nanami tries to get Naruto drunk so they could have sex together. She does so by claiming that her clan has a tradition to share a bottle of sake to wash away bad feelings. He agrees to do that tradition. However, an hour later, Nanami is drunk while Naruto still isn't yet. Much to her shock, he explains that his healing ability makes alcohol burns twice as fast in his body, meaning he can drink twice as much as other people before being drunk.
  • No Periods, Period: Averted. One strip has Naruto having a conversation with Sakura where he tells her that, every month, Hinata gets all moody and they don't see each other for a few days. However, Naruto thinks it must be some kind of chore she has to do every month. Sakura asks him if he knows what PMS is. He gives two wrong answers (first a courrier service, then a television channel) and he still doesn't understand what Hinata's monthly "chore" actually is by the end of the strip.
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: At some lake where all the characters are wearing swimsuits, Naruto, Sasuke, Kiba, Shikamaru, Choji, Neji, and Lee are all waiting for the girls to arrive. When the girls arrive with their revealing swimsuits, all the guys are blushing at their sight... with the exception of Lee, who continues to splash around in the water. Subverted in the next strip, when Lee is blushing heavily while seeing Arekusu wearing her swimsuit.
  • Not What It Looks Like: Naruto buys a bouquet of flowers from Ino so he can give it to Hinata. However, he accidentally drops it to the ground and kneels down to grab it. When Hinata arrives to ask Ino if she's free for something, the way Naruto is holding the bouquet gives the impression that he's offering it to the Yamanaka, making the latter panic over this misunderstanding.
  • Nothing Is Funnier: Ino decides to pull a prank on Naruto by claiming that the girls changing room (where Hinata is currently changing into a two-piece swimsuit) is actually unisex. Naruto enters it and Ino is waiting to hear a major reaction. However, she's confused when she hears nothing. She looks into the changing room and says "Oh, that explains it.", but what she's seeing is not shown.
  • Official Kiss: Naruko and Hinata from the Yuri-verse had their official kiss after they confessed their love to each other, which happened on the day Naruko left Konoha for her three years-long journey with Jiraiya.

  • Out-of-Context Eavesdropping: When Naruto and Hinata are moving into the same home, Naruto unpacks a box where one of Hinata's bras is caught on one of his pair of pants. Meanwhile, Konohamaru and Hanabi are standing outside the room and carrying some boxes. They hear what follows without knowing the context:
    Hinata: Naruto! Don't pull my bra so hard, you'll break it! The clip is at the front, just undo it!
    Naruto: OK, I opened your bra... but... my pants.
    Hinata: I see, let me take care of your pants for you.
    Naruto: I got it!
    Hinata: Naruto, just take it out and give it to me
    Hanabi: [to Konohamaru while they're both blushing] Think we should come back later?
  • Playboy Bunny: Tsunade hears a rumor about Naruto and Hinata. When the Uzumaki comes to her office, she says she heard they were going at it like 'rabbits'. However, Tsunade notices Naruto having a pervy face and angrily asks him if he's thinking about Hinata in a rabbit suit.
  • Poke the Poodle: Hinata is told that she's too much of a good girl to stand a chance with dating Naruto if the latter was into bad girls. She tries to prove she can be a bad girl as well... by not putting her cup back on the saucer and instead putting it directly on the table:
    Hinata: [suddenly wearing a leather jacket and sunglasses while having a cigarette in her mouth] Father would be furious at such bad etiquette and manners! See, I can be wild!
    Naruto: [smiling and sweat dropping] I'd have loved to see you in your rebellious stage!
  • Porn Stash: When Hinata is moving in with Naruto, Shino tells the latter "You're a brave man, Naruto." before adding "I wouldn't leave my girlfriend alone to clean my room in case she found my porn stash. Unless you threw them out?" Not only does Naruto immediately leave in a hurry after that, but Kiba is shocked to learn that Shino owns porn.
  • Power Perversion Potential: This is the subject of a discussion between Naruto and Hinata. The former asks the latter if she ever used her Byakugan to see through people's clothes. Heavily blushing and having Blank White Eyes, Hinata replies she never did that and that the Byakugan does not even work that way (or at least she doesn't think so).
  • The Prankster: Hanabi in spades, although Naruto and Hinata give as good as they get.
  • Right in Front of Me: One strip has Naruto and Hinata pull a prank on Hanabi by turning into Hiashi and forbidding her from seeing Konohamaru. Several strips later, Hanabi pulls a prank by claiming to Hiashi that Hinata and Naruto had a baby together (when in reality they were simply babysitting Kurenai's baby). Eventually, Hiashi learns the truth and decides to confront Hanabi over it. Upon seeing him, she wrongfully guesses it's Naruto in disguise and tells him "You think if you do my father's stupid frowny face I will fall for it, you are as dumb as Sakura says!" It's only when Naruto and Hinata appear several feet away from them that Hanabi realizes her mistake and makes an Oh, Crap! face.
  • Running Gag: If you thought Hiashi waved his swords at Naruto a lot in the main comic...
  • Secret Test of Character: Parodied. After Hinago confesses to Naruko that he loves her, she comes to the conclusion, after remembering some advice from Slutty-Sage, that he just wants to get in her pants by saying that. Naruko starts removing her clothes as a result. However, when Hinago makes it clear that he does love her, he has an over-the-top blushing reaction and asks if she was asking to have sex with him. Before he could finish his question, Naruko has an over-the-top embarrassed reaction and says "What?! Umm... N-No... Th-This... This was... Err... A test... Yeah, a test of your intentions!"
  • Self-Insert Fic: In-universe, Hinata has written a fanfic depicting her reunion with Naruto after he came back from his three years of training with Jiraiya to be much more romantic than how it actually happened. Much to her embarrassment, not only does Naruto find the fanfic, but he points out that they recall that reunion quite differently.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Naruko cleans up very nicely into a proper young lady. Subverted, though: One of Slutty-Sage's favorite roleplays was the Dirty Noble Lady, which required you to start off an angel before being a demon in bed.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: When Naruto refers to Arekusu as Lee's girlfriend, Lee nervously denies it. Afterwards, Naruto is confused over whether Lee and Arekusu are dating or not, while Hinata tells him they just need time.
  • Shout-Out:
  • "Shut Up" Kiss:
    • After Hinata pushes Naruto away so that Hiashi wouldn't see him after a prior discussion that went badly, the young Uzumaki ends up in a nearby river. After Hiashi leaves, Hinata panics upon seeing Naruto unconscious and with his face in the water. She pulls him out and thinks about giving him CPR, but she blushes heavily over kissing him while he's unconscious and thinks it would be "so naughty!" However, Naruto opens his right eye and impatiently tells her to just give him a kiss already while pulling her towards him. Hinata then exclaims "Eeep! Narut-MMM!" while the kiss is happening.
    • In the Christmas Episode, while attending a party, Hinata is waiting for Naruto to be back, presumably from a mission.

    • At the end of Hinago's first date with Naruko, the former hesitates on whether or not he should kiss the latter. Smirking, the Uzumaki girl says "Hey... Hinago..." The Hyuga boy then says "Ye...", only to be interrupted by a kiss from the blonde-haired girl.
    • Naruko from the Yuri-verse gives this kind of kiss to her Hinata when they are buying clothes for the latter.
  • Side Bet: During Naruto's first dinner time at the Hyuga Clan house, the other members of the clan hold a betting pool for how long it would take Hiashi to kill Naruto. Naruto bets anonymously and wins the pot.
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: Subverted, Hinata and Naruto deliberately insult each other to have a post-fight makeout session, but they come off as adorkable rather than angry at each other.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses:
    • Parodied. In one strip, Naruto is portrayed as being intellectual while wearing glasses. Then Hinata removes his glasses from his face and he goes back to being his normal, significantly less intellectual self, much to her joy.

Also, Naruto is wearing a Santa hat and a Santa beard, while Hinata is wearing an elf hat and has elf-like pointy ears.
  • Spit Take: During a dinner at the Hyuga residence, there's a silent moment and Naruto decides to say something to Hiashi to break the silence. The Uzumaki then says that Hinata has a great body and that it's amazing how all Hyuga women are so sexy. Hinata spits her meal upon hearing that and naturally expects her father to have a negative reaction. However, much to her shock, Hiashi smiles and says that, despite Naruto's statement being rather crude, he accepts the compliment on behalf of the clan.
  • Spy Catsuit: Hinata wears one during an undercover mission at some hotel. When the manager finds her like that, he assumes she has "a cat-suit fetish".

    Hinata: Did you break up with Sasuke?
    Sakura: What?! No!
  • Super-Deformed: In NHC, the characters are drawn with realistic proportions, similarly to the Naruto manga and anime. By contrast, the Mini-sodes and Eroti-sodes have the characters drawn with a chibi artstyle to fit its Denser and Wackier tone, similarly to Rock Lee's Springtime of Youth.

She then gets into the bed and, because of the darkness, doesn't realize she's fondling Hinata instead of Naruto. Soon enough, she's confused upon touching Hinata's breasts. This is immediately followed by the Hyuga turning on the lights, having Blank White Eyes, heavily blushing, and revealing that Naruto is on a mission, much to Nanami's embarrassment.
  • That Came Out Wrong:
    • Hinata has a conversation with Sakura, Ino, and Tenten where she says that she got angry with Naruto and told him she would punish him if he didn't stop teasing her, and Naruto now keeps asking her "When?" The girls think he's waiting for some punishment of the BDSM kind. Ino says there's nothing wrong with some Kinky Role-Playing, causing Sakura to say that Hinata isn't into that kind of thing. The Hyuga then says she wouldn't even know where to start if she was, only for Tenten (who's a weapon specialist) to tell her "I could lend you a whip." Both Hinata and Sakura look at Tenten in shock, who makes a Comical Angry Face and angrily explains that whips are weapons too:
      Ino: [grinning] Oh ho ho! So you really do have Neji 'whipped'!
      Tenten: Ino!!

      Hinago: [blushing and having Blank White Eyes] R-Really?! Wait... You do mean just sleep... right?

    Shikamaru: Huh?! Compliment?!
  • Through His Stomach: Hinata asks Sakura and Ino some advice on how to make Naruto say that he loves her. Sakura says this trope word-for-word and tells Hinata to make instant ramen for Naruto, specifically the rare kinds.

  • Twin Threesome Fantasy: During an undercover mission, when the hotel manager finds Hinata and Naruto (the latter having taken on the appearance of Hinata), he wrongly assumes they're twin sisters and gets excited over having "some private fun".
  • Under the Mistletoe: This is how Naruto and Hinata end up kissing each other at the end of the 2015 Christmas Episode.
  • Undercover as Lovers: Averted in the Undercover Mission arc. Tsunade gives a mission to Naruto and Hinata where they'll have to gather information and their cover will be as a couple on vacation. She explains that she previously sent fake couples (thus playing this trope straight), but they tend to be spotted easily. As such, for this mission, she decides to send an actual couple and it turns out Naruto and Hinata are the only actual couple to be completely available for this mission.
  • Unsettling Gender-Reveal: During an undercover mission at some hotel, Naruto takes on the appearance of Hinata while the latter is investigating. The pervy hotel manager is quite attracted to Naruto with that appearance. However, at the end of the mission, the Uzumaki reveals to the manager that he was a man all along, causing the manager to shout a Big "NO!" and to cry tears.
  • Whole Episode Flashback: The story told from the 205th through the 213th Mini-sodes is about how Naruko and Hinata from the Yuri-verse fell in love with each other and got married, taking place before these two were introduced in the 200th Mini-sode.
  • Wrong Bathroom Incident: Naruto ends up in the girls changing room (where Hinata is changing into her two-piece swimsuit) as a result of Ino pulling a prank on him by claiming the room is unisex. However, what happens afterwards is not shown beyond Ino being confused to not hear any reaction, looking into the changing room, and then saying "Oh, that explains it."
  • You Do Not Want To Know: Naruto asks Sasuke if the latter's Sharingan can copy anything and not just ninjutsu. The Uchiha replies he never used it outside of battle, but he could try as it could bring up some advantages. However, Kakashi arrives and warns him about it. Pointing at his own Sharingan eye, he has a disturbed look while saying "What you see... you cannot unsee... even by accident. I know details of things that would chill your bones to ice and haunt your dreams!" Sasuke then has a rather nervous look upon hearing that.
  • You Owe Me: When Hinata insists on giving a gift to Naruto, the latter reluctantly admits that he would love to see her kissing Sakura. The latter refuses, but decides to help Hinata by unzipping the latter's coat with her teeth. Naruto blushes heavily and has a nosebleed coming from both nostrils upon seeing that. This is followed by Sakura throwing the coat at Naruto and exclaiming "There! I took her coat off with my teeth, you owe me, Naruto!"
