    Naruto ripped several ideas from HxH. The chuunin exam is basicly copied from HxHs Hunter exam.

    And lo and behold God did create both plagiarism and homage and the Angels did ponder upon these ideas for many a moon before asking God, "So what exactly is the difference oh omniscient, omnipotent and beneficent one?" To which God did reply, "A lawyer!" Now the very idea of lawyers did not exist at that time so God did explain this concept to them and the Angels did shudder with fear. To which God replied "Very well I shall set you a test you shall read both Naruto and Yu Yu Hakusho/HunterXHunter. Knowing that Yu Yu Hakusho/HunterxHunter came first and tell me whether there is plagiarism involved or homage, if you answer correctly then there shall be no need for lawyers however should you fail then I shall create lawyers." And so the Angels did read the mangas and argue bizarre theories and write bad fanfics but still they could not come to a decision and the Heavenly Host was split in twain. So it did come to pass that what was once merely discussion and debate did slide into the flames of war as Angel fought Angel until God himself was forced to intervene and sit in judgement upon the most fanatic and blind of the Angels led by Lucifer. These were the Angels who wrote out of character yaoi fanfics and argued the most foolish of theories based on the flimsiest of speculation such as the fourth being the Akatsuki leader and various other bizarre thoughts that make sane men smash their heads off of walls. And then did Lucifer beg for a lawyer as God pronounced the words of exile to which God did reply, "Oh where you're going you'll get all the lawyers boyo!" And so did end the great war in Heaven as the Angels did realise once Lucifer and his followers were gone that the answer to the great question did not matter as long as they enjoyed the manga which they did read. Unfortunately we still got lawyers, maybe if they'd pulled their heads out of their asses sooner we might not have that, frickin angels.

    Anyway the main point is that despite what we think a truly original idea is a rare, rare commodity. We are all influenced subtly and overtly by what we have experienced in life and this can be noticed and the influences dissected if we examine it enough. But as long as you're having a good time don't worry about it and leave the nitpicking to the soulless husks that drain the life out of everything, aka lawyers.

    Also I gotta agree direct manipulation of Chakra has it's uses, the rasengan for example, but it seems in Naruto's world that it just doesn't hold a candle to the effectiveness of the elemental influenced techniques. Even with the elemental weaknesses or more people would use raw chakra techniques rather than elemental influenced ones.

    Noone mentioned Dragonball Z in this thread but suggested inspiration/ripping off of Yu Yu and HXH otherwise I'd have thrown in Dragonball as well. That and the Angels weren't worthy enough at the time for God to share his Dragonball Z and One Piece.

    Survival-Exam with getting something in particular...

    Naruto: two scrolls
    HxH: participants' number plates
    -> yes...

    Naruto: Combat Tournament
    HxH: Combat Tournament
    Especially the fact that at first everyone thought only one would be able pass
    the last exam, due to the system the Hokage/Netero had shown the participants....in both series...

    -> yes...

    Well the Jounin-Exam and the Hunter-Exam are mostly with those two tests similar to each other...With the difference that no girl had a time of focus of attention in Hunter X Hunter....because there wasn't a important girl >.< oh well....
