In the manga and anime series Naruto, Minato Namikaze (波風ミナト, Namikaze Minato?), also known as the Fourth Hokage (四代目火影, Yondaime Hokage?) or Yondaime Hokage, is a ninja who has sealed a nine-tailed fox demon into his son's body, Naruto Uzumaki. After performing the sealing and convincing the public not to declare Naruto a monster but a hero, Minato died from the side effects of the move. Minato is described as very similar to his son, and they have a number of relationships and similarities. Minato along with two unknown genin are students of Jiraiya. He is also the teacher of Kakashi Hatake, Obito Uchiha, and Rin Nohara. Minato Namikaze has a wife named Kushina Uzumaki and a son named Naruto. Naruto's name follows his mother's surname, namely Uzumaki. It is said that Minato is the greatest ninja Konoha has produced, with very rare natural talent. Minato made several special techniques, including the Hiraishin no Jutsu (飛雷神の術?) which was able to make him arrive at any location quickly, using a special seal, or jutsu-shiki (術式?). By incorporating the seal into a kunai or enemy, Minato can switch places to the seal's location without attracting attention.
Minato also appears in the movie 6: Naruto Shippuden Road to Ninja.
This ability earned him the nickname "Konoha's Yellow Flash" (木ノ葉の黄色い閃光, Konoha no Kīroi Senkō?) or the Yellow Flash from Konoha because his campaigning speed (with his yellow hair) is almost unobservable even without any moves, this is shown as instant reflexes and indeed his true speed. It was never known how strong Minato was in battle. However, during the Third Great Ninja War, orders to flee immediately were given to enemy ninja if it was discovered that Minato had appeared in battle. Minato is the creator of the Rasengan, a technique that does not require hand seals, but uses a concentrated Chakra vortex in the palm of the hand that inflicts a certain amount of damage to the victim. His son, Naruto also mastered this move. Even Naruto can develop this move into Rasenshuriken by adding his own element, one thing that Minato has not had time to do because his death is so fast. Minato is also known to have extensive knowledge of the Seal Kick or fūinjutsu. Minato Namikaze and the other dead Hokage were resurrected by Orochimaru. His focus is so that Sasuke can inquire about the past that he does not know. In Chapter 627 Sasuke has determined the solution, that he will help Konoha. Accompanied by Suigetsu, Juugo, Orochimaru, and Karin, as well as the four other Hokage Edo Tensei. Minato also appears in the movie 6: Naruto Shippuden Road to Ninja. It is said that Minato and Kushina are still alive and have a child named Menma, who is Naruto in the story Road to ninja. Minato Namikaze also known as Konoha Yellow Flash (Konoha no Kiiroi Senkou) is the Fourth Hokage (Yondaime Hokage). Minato is considered the most powerful Hokage and the strongest Ninja from Konoha that has ever existed.
Kushina no longer saw him "unstable", she fell in love with him.
For most people (sensei Jiraiya, Raikage, etc.), he was the "Savior" of the Shinobi World before he died. Minato trusted this "role" to Naruto, his son. Background When Minato was at the Academy, his classmate and future wife, Uzumaki Kushina thought that he looked "unstable" and even "feminine". He dreams of being recognized by the Konoha village community by becoming Hokage, which Kushina considers an absurd dream for someone like him. Years later, when Kushina was kidnapped by the Kumogakure ninja, Minato was the only one to pick her up based on the fact that she let loose strands of her red hair to mark their path. After saving her, Minato explained that he had always admired her hair. Kushina no longer saw him "unstable", she fell in love with him. According to those who knew him personally, Minato was a very talented oddball boy - a rare genius ninja that appeared only once in a generation. He graduated from the Academy at the age of ten, and was added to the genin team under Jiraiya's tutelage who took Minato's special interest and accepted him as a student, among them teaching him Kuchiyose no Jutsu.
39;s ninja ranks, Minato uses his Hiraishin no Jutsu to kill the Iwagakure ninja.
He even believed Minato might be someone Yogen no Ko who would one day save the world. Konoha no Kiiroi Senkou At that time, Minato was assigned to lead a genin team of his own consisting of Rin, Obito Uchiha, and Kakashi Hatake. During the Third Shinobi World War, Minato guides his team on a mission to Kusagakure to destroy the Kannabi Bridge. Since Kakashi had just become a Jounin, Minato gave Kakashi a intelligence mission while he went to help Konoha's troops on the front line. After encountering an army of survivors outside of Konoha's ninja ranks, Minato uses his Hiraishin no Jutsu to kill the Iwagakure ninja. He eventually returned to his team just in time to save Kakashi and Rin from the rest of the Iwa Army, but it was too late to save Obito. As Kakashi and Rin improved from the exam, Minato helped them complete the mission. At one point before becoming Hokage, he clashed with A several times. At their first meeting, he confessed to A as Jinchuuriki Killer B's brother from Hachibi. After receiving the signal that Konoha had withdrawn he stated that later they would meet each other to assume the title of Kage and also gave an advice from his brother to determine who he was, before he became a human or a Jinchuuriki. Fourth Hokage When the war was over, Minato was not yet thirty years old, when he was chosen to be the Fourth Hokage.
At one point during his reign, he read Jiraiya's first book. He likes the determination of the main character who he trusts like Jiraiya. Since Kushina was pregnant with their son, Minato told Jiraiya that they planned to name their child "Naruto" with the wish that he would be like the main character, after Jiraiya. Jiraiya reminded them that it would make him look like Naruto's Grandpa, but they insisted that this was a good thing. Since Kushina was the Jinchuuriki of the Kyuubi no Youko, a special agreement had to be made for Naruto's birth. Since the Kyuubi seal keeps it inside her womb, but weakens during childbirth, Naruto will be secretly sent to a remote location outside Konoha. The ANBU will guard the area and Minato will guard the seal while Kushina enters labor. Soon after Naruto's birth, they were found by Tobi who had killed the ANBU seated outside and infiltrated the cave. Tobi killed Biwako Sarutobi and Taji then took Naruto hostage and threatened to do the same to him. Minato was able to take Naruto back, but this gave Tobi a chance to escape with Kushina. Minato found a secure place to seat Naruto and then teleported to Kushina. He arrived in time to stop the Kyuubi that had been left behind from Kushina's body, to cause her death, and teleported back to Naruto. Minato reunited his mother and son and then left to help defend Konoha from the Kyuubi. Minato reached at the start of the Kyuubi's attack. After protecting the village from the Bijuudama, Minato tried to find the Third Hokage to inform him of what had happened, but was dismissed by Tobi.
Minato managed to escape but was accompanied by Tobi. When the two started fighting, Minato had a hard time hitting Tobi. Tobi who doesn't materialize whenever he doesn't still attack. Carefully, when his Hiraishin no Jutsu manages to attack in one of the rare moments and seals his Hiraishin no Jutsu on him, he teleports directly to Tobi. He sat Keiyaku Fuuin on Tobi to remove the Kyuubi from his control, forcing the two to retreat. When Minato returned to the village he found a lot of ruins. He summoned Gamabunta to distract the Kyuubi. Long enough to teleport away from the village to Naruto and Kushina's location. Kushina who was in pain and still dying from the trauma of the Kyuubi's release, voluntarily resealed the Kyuubi into her body so that it would die with her, but Minato didn't agree and instead decided he will use Shiki Fuujin on the Kyuubi to weaken it and eventually seal the rest into Naruto. Kushina objected because it would mean her death and leave Naruto an orphan. Minato insisted it was for the best because it was possible to resurrect the Kyuubi himself without the Jinchuuriki to contain him, inevitably causing losses to Konoha and the Fire Nation. In addition, Minato believed that Naruto was the "Son of the Prophecy" that Jiraiya had told him about and would need the Kyuubi's power to one day defeat Tobi. After using Shiki Fuujin to seal away the beast's Yin chakra, the Kyuubi realized their intentions and tried to kill Naruto, Minato and Kushina. Minato and Khusina used their bodies to protect him. When Kushina gave Naruto her last words, Minato summoned Gerotora, gave him the key to the seal he used on Naruto, and sent it to Jiraiya.
39;s past freely and Minato is said to be very kind.
After Kushina told Naruto how much her parents loved her, and finished all her words and finally sealed the Kyuubi and all of their chakra into Naruto, so that they would be able to watch him again when he grew up, ending their lives. Since the Third Hokage has come to his aid, using the last moment to ask Konoha to declare Naruto a hero and not an institution of the monster that causes so much death and destruction. Before he died, he sealed some of his own chakra into Naruto, so that he might one day be able to meet him again, especially if earlier the seal would break so he could restore it. Personality Jiraiya and Tsunade explain that Naruto bears a great physical resemblance to Minato, and his personality is almost identical to that of his mother. Even though Naruto was tough and relatively stupid. Minato seems calm, sociable and very perceptive. He also seems to be aware of the horrors of his reputation inspired by his enemies. He seems to respect the people around him, he doesn't like to talk about other people's past freely and Minato is said to be very kind. He cared deeply for and loved his wife and child, was very nervous because of Kushina's pain during childbirth and even cried out of joy at the birth of his son. He also enjoys reading and likes to read Jiraiya's works. Jiraiya said that Minato was a smart person, and not a man who would do something without argument. He was knowledgeable of the ninja world, he concluded that only Madara Uchiha would have the power or reason to have the Kyuubi attack Konoha during their battle.
Minato is known for his invincibility and extraordinary drive, which he passed on to his son. In his youth, Minato also had a desire to be recognized by everyone in the village and to become a great Hokage, again a trait that was passed down to his son. His devotion to the kelurahan and his love for his friends inspired everyone around him, and as a result, he became deeply loved by the kelurahan community. Minato still understands that Naruto must feel hurt by the fact that his own father has sealed a monster within him. Appearance Minato is quite tall, with darker skin compared to Naruto in terms of physical appearance; both have bright blue eyes and spiky blonde hair. Unlike Naruto, Minato has waist-length bangs framing both sides of his face. According to Jiraiya, Minato is considered very handsome, because many women are crazy about him. His normal attire consists of the standard Konoha-nin uniform with two bands each on both sleeves, a flak jacket and a forehead protector, after becoming Hokage he started wearing a short white long sleeved coat over his normal attire decorated with a fire-like motif on the edges with kanji.

In his youth, he wore sportswear with three stripes on the sleeves, a mesh t-shirt, dark colored trousers and long black calf sandals. Ability According to Jiraiya, Minato is one of the most talented ninja ever present.
Anko Mitarashi in his discussion with the Third Hokage with Orochimaru's extraordinary powers and threats to the village, stated that he hoped the Fourth. During the Third Shinobi War, enemy ninja were seen fleeing—and Minato was also able to counter the Kyuubi's attacks that Tobi needed to meet him head on. After their battle, Tobi praised Minato and declared him worthy of the title of Fourth Hokage. His abilities so far surpassed others, that even the Fourth Raikage thought that no one would be able to surpass him. Minato was so extraordinary that even at a young age, he was able to save Kushina alone from three Kumogakure Ninja. Like Tobirama Senju, Minato is also able to detect the presence of people in an event just by placing his finger on the ground. Minato is often without the time-consuming hand seals that give his enemies an opening so he looks forward to his two original techniques: Hiraishin no Jutsu and Rasengan. Taijutsu One of Minato's trademark attributes is his incredible speed and instantaneous reflexes. As a testament to his speed, C compares Minato's reflexes to the Fourth Raikage's own even when he uses his Raiton no Yoro, although the Raikage admits to something that Minato is faster than himself, Even without using his Hiraishin no Jutsu, Minato was fast enough to catch baby Naruto falling to prevent him from Tobi's stab. He is also able to respond to Tobi's Jikuukan Ido quickly enough to escape. He is often referred to throughout the series as the fastest, ever, with the fastest speed, a shinobi alive today, often compared to himself, such as A in his Raiton no Yoro or Naruto in Kyuubi Chakra Mode. When fighting, he often uses unique kunai, he wields them skillfully and takes advantage of their special form, which makes them more suited to close combat than standard kunai. campaigned to save his brother from Minato's backlash though to little effect, explaining the high amount of power he had.
Moon Breathing (月 (つき) (こ) (きゅう), Tsuki no kokyū?) is a Breathing Style derived from the Sun Breathing used by Upper Rank One, Kokushibō, who was one of the first Demon Slayers who utilized breathing techniques. The techique allows the user to create many "chaotic blades" when slashing that varies in length and size. It is known that Kokushibō continued to develop and add techniques to the Breathing Style over the centuries as an immortal Demon. At this point in the story, it is the only known Breathing Style to possess at least 20 different techniques, easily surpassing the other Breathing Styles. It has been revealed that, like all of the other original breathing styles, the Moon Breathing also branched out of the Sun Breathing. When its creator, Michikatsu Tsugikuni, attempted to learn the Sun Breathing from his twin brother, Yoriichi Tsugikuni, he discovered he was unable to master the breathing style and so was instead trained in an alternate Breathing Style. Yoriichi created it fit and cover his individual strengths and weaknesses, and Michikatsu then continued to train and develop this breathing until it eventually evolved into its own unique Breathing Style, which he named the Moon Breathing.
