The often line "Dattebayo" that Naruto repeats in dialogs is changed in the English version as "Believe It." Also, in the Spanish version, it's changed to "De veras." In Portuguese it's changed to "Tô certo". This is largely due to keeping the words to line up with the "Dattebayo" mouth flaps. Additonally, Naruto, on occasion, just shorten the word to "'Ttebayo."
