Minato Namikaze was the Fourth Hokage of The Hidden Leaf Village. He was the student of Jiraiya, and Sensei to Kakashi Hatake, Obito Uchiha, and Rin Nohara. He was famous in life for his speed, leading to being dubbed Konoha's Yellow Flash. He died during the Nine-Tails' attack on Konohagakure, sacrificing his life to seal half of the Nine-Tails into himself, and the other half into his newborn son, Naruto Uzumaki.

  • Expert in stealth & ambushing
  • Trained by Jiraiya, Hiruzen Sarutobi, and Fukasaku & Shima.

Sage Mode[]

  • Taught to Minato by Fukasaku (Presumably)
  • Minato gains yellow, toad-like irides with orange pigmentation around his eyes
  • Is very inexperienced with Sage Mode, requiring long amounts of time to collect the Chakra necessary to enter the form, however, has better mastery over it than his Sensei, Jiraiya. (Minato can enter Sage Mode on his own, and doesn't gain Toad like features.)
  • Sage Jutsu (Senjutsu)
    • Gathers natural energy from the environment and combines it with the user's own Chakra: increasing their power.
      • The user's physical strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, perception, and durability are enhanced.
      • Allows Minato to refuel his Chakra so long as there is enough natural energy to do so.
    • Senses surroundings and can detect Chakra: allowing Minato to locate other Ninjas and thus avoid ambushes.
    • Natural Energy is harmful towards Chakra absorbing techniques, as a lack of control over it can turn the user into a frog statue.

Kurama (Former)[]

  • AKA the Nine-Tailed Fox
  • A kaiju made of pure Chakra that, after being split in halves, had it's Chakra sealed into Minato prior to his death.
  • Immeasurable chakra reserves, the highest reserves in the world, excluding some Otsutsuki Clan members and the Ten-Tails.
  • Can sense negative emotions & natural energy
  • Techniques
    • Nine-Tails Chakra Mode
    • Tailed Beast Bomb
      • Tailed Beast Bomb Barrage
    • Tailed Beast Chakra Arms
    • Tailed Beast Shockwave
    • Tailed Beast Telepathy
    • Nine-Tails Twister
    • Nine-Tails Beam
    • Wind Style Jutsu
    • Fire Style Jutsu


  • Since he was a child, has been able to move faster than a well trained human eye can track, a feat requiring speed of well over 9,000 mph. With Flying Raijin, can move instantaneously.
  • Reacted to and avoided the Fourth Raikage's lightning speed at last second, putting his reaction time at well over 220,000,000 mph.
  • With his teleportation barrier, was able to deflect Tailed Beast Bombs from both the Nine-Tails and Ten-Tails, saving the lives of the Hidden Leaf Village and the Allied Shinobi Forces respectively.
  • Defeated Obito Uchiha, who's Mangekyo Sharingan essentially allowed him to become intangible.
  • Sacrificed his life to split the Nine-Tails Chakra in half, sealing one half in himself and the other in his son in hopes that he would be able to gain control over that power and stop "Madara" in the future, where he could not.
  • With the Nine-Tails Chakra, managed to use Flying Raijin on the entirety of the Allied Shinobi Forces, albeit was exhausted after doing so.


  • Despite having decent Chakra reserves, can run out and be exhausted. Has mastered Chakra control in order to postpone this from happening.
  • Could not save Obito Uchiha from his 'death', as he was busy on another mission at the time, ignorant to the events that had taken place.
  • Could not save Rin Nohara from becoming the Three-Tails Jinchuriki, and her subsequent death, as he was busy on another mission at the time, ignorant to the events that had taken place.
  • Could not figure out that Obito Uchiha was the one who attacked the Hidden Leaf Village on the day of his son's birth, jumping to the conclusion it was Madara Uchiha (A reasonable assumption). Obito, after Minato was reanimated, ridiculed him for this.
  • Had not mastered Sage Mode to the same extent as his son, and requires large amounts of time to gather the Nature energy required to enter Sage Mode.
