Minato Namikaze | Narutopedia | FANDOM powered by Wikia
After all the planning is over Madara tells Obito that the one to revive him will be Nagato Tobi and Minato then charged at each other one last time, but this time Minato . Tobi and Kisame then meet with Taka and Tobi asks Sasuke what he's . From the manga onwards upto , we see the entire incident happen, from the cave collapsing to obito meeting madara for the first time. No, He fought Obito thinking it was MADARA, The first tip off that it wasn't should have been him “winning” the fight. I think he knew it was Obito when he was.
From observing a Tailed Beast BallMinato began a three year process of creating the Rasenganthe height of shape transformation. He would spend the rest of his life trying to combine it with his own nature.
After proving himself an accomplished and responsible ninja, Minato was placed in charge of his own team, consisting of Rin NoharaObito Uchihaand Kakashi Hatake. In the anime, the Third Hokage gave Minato the special task of helping Kakashi overcome the bitterness caused by his father 's death and remind him of the human element of being a ninja.
Unfortunately, Kakashi realised this, but only used Obito and Rin as a means to an end to obtain the bells. Nonetheless, he passed them because they accomplished the goal of the test by working as a team. Although he did encourage them to improve their teamwork afterwards, a message that Obito and Rin took to heart, but fell on deaf ears with Kakashi.
When Konoha became involved in the Third Shinobi World WarMinato's obligations became split between training his students and helping with the war effort. He met up with the surviving and out-numbered Konoha ninja and single-handedly wiped out the opposing Iwagakure forces. In the anime, his victory in this battle against a thousand ninja convinced the Third Tsuchikage to accept a peace treaty.
He rescued them, helped them complete their original mission once they recovered, and returned to Konoha with them to mourn Obito. Minato encountered A of Kumogakure a number of times during the war. A pursued Minato, so Minato moved against B, threatening to kill him if A didn't let him and his team go. As Menma and friends congratulate Tenten, she apparently smiles that she belongs in the dream world.
As Yugito and Bee free Naruto and Kurama from being locked up in the mouth of Tsunade's statue from the Leaf Village, they trigger a fail-safe trap and being sucked there and detained underground by Tsunade, Shizune and the Anbu Black Ops. Soon after protecting the castle from the clones of White Zetsu, the nine Jinchiriki combined powers with the Tailed Beast Bomb to counter against the Gedo Statue's.
As the nine triumph at the castle in Bee's dream, he apparently chuckles while being trapped in Madara's genjutsu. Mourning for her mother and being horrified from the bite marks on her body, Karin is assigned to the medical team, while she stays at home. Later, she heals the group of grass ninjas at the battlefield, before she collapses from exhaustion. Fearing that she will die from biting injuries, Karin arrives and heals them.
Orochimaru saves Karin from two thugs and she joins him. Soon after Orochimaru recollects information with Karin, she sees Sasuke again strolling through the room. Sasuke recovers Karin who asks him to smile. She looks at the papers, which are titled "Jiraiya's Ninja Scrolls" and recalls when he was still in the middle of writing it and he asked her to be the first one to read it, even though she declined.
As she reads it, the story begins with the tale of a nine tailed fox spirit, which can smash mountains and create tidal waves and a band of ninja arose to defend their village when it attacked until a lone shinobi staked his life to seal the beast away. The hero who fought the Nine Tails is revealed to be Minato, who survived the battle.
One morning, he greets Kushina, who also survives and asks him how his meeting with the Third Hokage went. Minato remembers him and the Third meeting with the Uchiha clan to insure their allegiance with them will continue forever.
Naruto wakes up and goes outside for the mission. He arrives at the Uchiha compound to pick up Sasuke and greets Itachi.
Sasuke is displeased to have to be picked up Naruto every morning and denies Naruto's insistence they are friends before running off to meet up with their team. At the village's gates, two guards find a passed out ninja, who only says "Ageha" when they ask him what's wrong.
Team 7 goes to the cemetery to visit the grave and monument of the ninjas who died in combat and tells them a story of a shinobi captain who committed suicide after being condemned for saving his comrades rather than completing the mission. He reminds them the importance of teamwork and asks them to go train. Sasuke privately asks why was he placed on the same team with Naruto, even though he says he is not against it. Kakashi assumes Sasuke, the best student of his class, is frustrated that the team is getting S-rank missions and blames Naruto, the last of their class, for this.
As Naruto and Sakura walk, he shows excitement for their mission and when asked by Sakura for this, he replies he is going to be Hokage one day. Sasuke agrees but adds due to Naruto being the Fourth Hokage's son, he is shown favoritism. Angry, Naruto and Sasuke fight but Sakura stops them.
Naruto challenges Sasuke to race with him to the top of a rock and takes off without warning. Sasuke and Sakura see a signal fired into the sky, and Kakashi tells them the Hokage is calling for them to assemble. As Naruto races to the rock, he vows to himself to never give up, and doesn't notice the crack in the ground and falls. As he panics, he remembers Jiraiya telling him it would be interesting to see if the power that was given to him is truly for him and Naruto has to figure a way out if he lives.
Naruto enters into his consciousness and encounters Kurama. Naruto is fully aware of Kurama being inside his body and demands Kurama lend him its chakra, to which Kurama replies he is mistaken and envelopes him with its chakra, saying that if Naruto dies so does Kurama.
Naruto snaps back into reality and remembers when Jiraiya taught him the Summoning Jutsu, and Naruto successfully summons Gamabunta, saving himself. Kakashi, Sasuke and Sakura later arrive to find Naruto unharmed.
In his office, Minato remembers the day the Nine Tails attacked the village and Kushina was about to reseal the beast back into her body, at the cost of her life. Minato convinced her to instead seal half of Kurama's chakra in her and the other half in Naruto.
In an earlier talk, Jiraiya told Minato that Naruto will learn how to control Kurama's chakra in no time. Minato wonders that if Naruto is the "Child of the Prophecy" but has not fully controlled the Nine Tails' chakra, was he too soon to give Naruto his mission.
Team KakashiGuy, Asuma and Kurenai gather together and are informed they will be searching for missing shinobi, and they scatter to different routes. A concerned Minato interviews the injured genin, who can only remember Ageha butterflies, and discusses this finding with Tsunade. Minato provides the details of the mission to the four Leaf teams, instructing them not to attempt to rescue the missing shinobi should they be found, and instead contact Konoha immediately.
Shikamaru instantly understands that as they are being given this mission because more experienced shinobi seem to be the ones targeted. Team 7 stops for a moment, noticing the Ageha butterflies, Naruto goes off chasing them, followed by Sasuke, intent on bringing him back. At the sites of their disappearances, the Flying Raijin Kunai given to them by Minato.
Just before Guy's disappearance, Neji detects an underground chakra flow, that vanishes after Guy is taken. Shikamaru deduces that what happened to their team also happened to others, and decides to wait for Team 8 to reach them, as they are the best trackers, before deciding on a plan. Team 7 is intercepted by Hidan while looking for Team 8. Hidan wounds Naruto, managing to acquire his blood, and proceeds to curse and injure him. Team 10 is attacked by Yahiko, Konan, and Nagato. The Naruto that Hidan cursed is revealed to be a shadow clone, and the real Naruto reveals himself with more clones and defeats Hidan.
Black tendrils rise behind Team Kakashi and Hidan uses the distraction to defeat Naruto's shadow clones. The tendrils try to capture Sakura, but Naruto and Sasuke intervene. Team Jiraiya pushes Team Asuma in certain direction, and stops attacking. Hidan escapes and meets up with Kakuzu who is carrying Kakashi.
Kakuzu leaves Kakashi with Hidan, and goes retrieve the other captured team captains. Team Kurenai finds signs of Team Asuma's fight, and follows them. Team Asuma finds an abandoned village. Team Guy meets up with Team Kakashi, and the two catch each other up on what happened. Team Asuma spots two children in the village and decides to follow them. Team Jiraiya observes the children, and when Team Asuma arrives, Yahiko attacks them. Shikamaru strikes back, which riles Nagato up, causing his powers to flare up and collapse the house.
The crumbling attracts the attention of the other teams. Team Jiraiya goes into the sinkhole to save the children. In it, Shikamaru advises his team not to go into the sinkhole. Teams Kakashi and Guy arrive in the village, and notice a commotion. From outside the village, Team Kurenai also notices the sinkhole. Team Jiraiya look for the children, and Nagato worries about his Rinnegan. Shikamaru explains to his team why they should prioritise meeting up with the other teams.
Team Jiraiya finds an underground tunnel, and Konan finds a teddy bear belonging to the children. They head down the tunnel. Team Asuma comes across with a praying woman, who explains strangers told the villagers the village could become a battlefield, and to evacuate it, as well as telling them about the village's protector, Mashima.
Team Jiraiya is attacked by a creature in the tunnels, but Nagato protects them. Teams Guy and Kakashi witness their team captains inside a sphere. The one responsible berates the genin for sacrificing their comrades to follow rules. Naruto and Neji jump into the sphere after the kidnapped shinobi, and the spheres disappears with them.
Konan saves the two children from the creature in an underground lair. Team Asuma investigates a shrine to Mashima and find a trapdoor. During a fight, Team Jiraiya discovers there is a second creature.
Teams Kakashi and Guy wonder where Naruto and Neji vanished to. Naruto and Neji wake up in a strange location, and are met by a masked individual, who Neji notices to have a Byakugan. The masked individual berates them for putting rules ahead of the lives of children, and invites Neji to discover the secrets Konohagakure has in that village. The two teams return the children to their mother. Team Jiraiya thanks Team Asuma for coming to their aid, and surmises they also share some of Jiraiya's values.
Team Jiraiya asks them to join, but Team Asuma refuses, wanting to find Asuma. Shikamaru deduces Team Jiraiya does not want them dead, and is following orders from someone else. They prepare to fight again, but Team Jiraiya leaves just before they're joined by Team Kurenai. Shikamaru does not tell them about Team Jiraiya, and decides they need to both report to Konohagakure and regroup with Teams Kakashi and Guy.
Lee and Sasuke discuss about returning to the village or keep looking from their vanished team-mates and sensei. The three discuss the events witnessed, and the masked man asks Neji to join him and force change in Konohagakure. Elsewhere, Jiraiya finds one of Orochimaru's compounds.
Tsunade attributes it to not being able to put down Jiraiya's novel about the younger generation of Konohagakure.
Shizune offers to bring her dinner, and Tsunade resumes reading. In the novel, Neji question the masked man's motives. He says that by changing how a village such as Konohagakure operates, the other hidden villages will follow, changing the world for the better. The masked man requests Neji to see what he means.
Neji agrees to hear him out, and when Naruto tries to interfere, the masked man paralyses him. Neji promises to return to Naruto once he has seen what the masked man wants, and the two depart. Jiraiya ventures into Orochimaru's hideout, and comes across a bandaged individual. Team Jiraiya reports to the masked man about the incident with the children, including how the Konoha genin eventually helped them, despite the directives of their mission.
The masked man ponders about it, and instructs them to resume surveillance. Neji asks with the Konoha genin are his team-mates, which the masked man confirms, and asks Neji if he wants to see if they can change the future of shinobi.

Lee and Tenten are attacked with explosive tags, directing them towards the same location. Sasori lands a hit on Sasuke, poisoning him. The Nine-Tails tries to convince Naruto to open the seal so it can use its chakra to aid Naruto. Jiraiya suddenly appears to Naruto. Her dinner is too salty, and her beverage is too hot, so Tsunade resumes reading.
The masked man prevents Neji from coming to Sasuke and Sakura's aid, assuring him he won't let them be killed, insisting Neji watch the battle to witness their true selves.
The masked man reminds Sasori of the mission and Sasori begins attacking Sakura, who manages to dodge and land one of her own, causing him to retreat. She proceeds to treat Sasuke, removing the poison in his system. The masked man tells Neji there is more to come.

Lee and Tenten stop running after noticing they're no longer under attack. Kiba smells Sasuke and Sakura nearby, and Hinata spots Sasori near them.
While Sakura heals him, Sasuke thinks back to his childhood.

Itachi and Sasuke discuss their father, and the recent negotiations between the Uchiha and the village. Sasuke requests Kakashi to teach him a new jutsu, so Kakashi begins teaching him the Chidori. Itachi learns from Minato he intends to keep his promises to the Uchiha clan. Sasuke witnesses Naruto being taught the Giant Rasengan by Minato. Fugaku dismisses Sasuke and is unimpressed by his training. Sasuke learns the Chidori, but knowing that Naruto is expanding his Rasengan, he asks Kakashi how much further he can take the Chidori.
Itachi invites Sasuke to participate in a discussion with their father. Fugaku questions Itachi, who reports he believes Minato's efforts in changing the way the Uchiha are treated are sincere. Itachi adds that for it to happen, the Uchiha must change as well, meeting them in the middle. Sasuke is appalled by Itachi's comment, but is cut off by Fugaku, who is certain Itachi came to that conclusion after careful consideration, and considers finding common ground a good decision.
Sasuke resents Fugaku always siding with Itachi. Itachi reveals the Uchiha have been chosen for a long term mission that would keep some of them away. Fugaku's support for Itachi taking on the mission angers Sasuke, who channels his frustration into his Chidori training. Sakura brings him food, but an enraged Sasuke tosses it aside, causing Naruto to request him to apologize. Sasuke further antagonizes Naruto, and the two begin fighting, despite Sakura's attempts to defuse the situation.
Minato intervenes just as they are about to clash Chidori and Rasengan. Minato is taken aback by Sasuke's anger, which only grows stronger when he sees the destruction caused by Naruto's Rasengan is much greater than what he has achieved with the Chidori.
Minato asks Naruto why he used the Rasengan against Sasuke, and Naruto explains Sasuke's constant refusal in acknowledging him, vowing to make it happen someday. Sasuke and Fugaku talk, and Sasuke decides to no longer expect anything from his father, and asks something from him. Sasuke requests to be taken off Team 7, is transferred to the Leaf Police Force, and leaves to shadow other Uchiha on their long term mission.
Jiraiya makes Naruto realize that Sasuke's request means that in some way, he is aware of Naruto's strength. Jiraiya intends to leave to find out more about Orochimaru, and Naruto suggests going with him to train. With Team 7 split up, Sakura, unwilling to lag behind Naruto and Sasuke, takes up the opportunity and requests to be trained by Tsunade who accepts.
On the move, Shisui questions Sasuke's resolve in joining the mission, when everyone else is ranked above him and Sasuke explains his motivation. Three years go by, during which Naruto trains with Jiraiya and learns senjutsu, Sasuke trains with Shisui and further develops the Chidori, and Sakura trains with Tsunade to learn the Reverse Seal. Upon his return to the village, Fugaku learns from the reports Sasuke became second only to Shisui, and when Sasuke declares he will also surpass Itachi, he promotes him in the Leaf Police Force, to see it Sasuke can back his claims up with action.
Sasuke accepts, and leaves, angrily remembering the day he left Konoha. The unit takes them through Konoha, where the population is scared by their aggressive methods. Sasuke and the other Uchiha discuss their jobs and the relations with the village. Minato, Hiruzen, and Itachi discuss the group's escalating violence in their duties, agreeing they must tread carefully.
A recently arrived Naruto observes the same. The four update Naruto on how things have changed. The Uchiha harass an elderly shopkeeper, but Naruto intervenes. Naruto and the others discuss curbing Sasuke's overreach, and are overheard by the other Uchiha, who inform Sasuke. The villagers gossip about the police's run-in with Naruto, and, unauthorized, they look to confront Naruto at his home and also threatening to arrest Kushina. The Uchiha involved are arrested, Fugaku expresses his disappointment in Sasuke's development, and dismisses him from the police force.
He is intercepted by Kakashi, who asks what he is doing. Sasuke thanks him for his training, but explains he is unsatisfied with his progress, revealing he is going to train with Orochimaru, and incapacitates Kakashi with genjutsu. Upon waking up, Kakashi relays the information to Hiruzen, Minato, and Tsunade, herself informing the others about Jiraiya's intel regarding Orochimaru's imminent need for a new vessel.
Sakura overhears their conversation. Minato wants to handle the situation internally as discreetly as possible, to avoid worsening the already delicate situation with the Uchiha, and orders a lockdown. The Konoha 11 meet up at the Academy at night, where Sakura and Shikamaru informs the others about Sasuke's departure.
Naruto and Shikamaru sneak out of the village through a tunnel created by Kiba, and Naruto promises Sakura to bring Sasuke back. Neji notices someone else sneaking out as well. Kushina informs Minato that Naruto and Shikamaru have escaped the lockdown.
Team Guy intercepts the attack. As the fight goes on, Shikamaru realises these are not regular Anbu. Sasuke continues on his way to Orochimaru. From above, Deidara flies on his dragon, and sends one of his clay figures their way, killing them.The Reunion of Kakashi & Obito Two-Man Squad, Minato Stumbles Trying to Counter Madara
Zetsu watches it from afar, and its halves discuss Deidara, who arrives shortly. They are met by Hidan, who berates Deidara for blasting the Sand shinobi, and Kakuzu, who manages to retrieve a body not too damaged. They all leave together. Naruto manages to unmask the Root member fighting him, revealing her to be Anko. Shikamaru realizes their mission is to ensure Sasuke reaches Orochimaru, and has the group flee from the fight and continue pursuing Sasuke.
Lee stays behind to stall the Root shinobi, but one of them engages him, allowing the others to continue. Lee takes off his weights and opens the fifth of the Eight Gates. Kakuzu delivers the corpses to a bounty station. Zetsu, Deidara, Kakuzu, and Hidan meet up with Sasori, who intervenes when an argument begins between Deidara and Hidan. Hidan accuses Sasori of siding with Deidara, and in turn is reminded of the Hizashi incident, and that Akatsuki as is might exist because of Deidara.
He was the one responsible for the explosion that destroyed the village and killed Yahiko years ago, and Sasori presented Nagato and Konan with a Flying Raijin Kunai, blaming Minato and Konoha for the explosion. Lee fights the Root shinobi, and Tenten stays behind to stall another when they begin to catch up with the group.
Orochimaru waits for an approaching Sasuke. Naruto, Neji, and Shikamaru continue to give chase, followed by two remaining Root shinobi. Anko reveals she is accompanied by an ink clone, while the other Anbu flies above them on an ink bird. Shikamaru stays at the tower's entrance to fight Sai.
Sasuke meets up with Orochimaru. On his way up the tower, Naruto is captured by Yamato. Naruto taps into the Nine-Tails' power, freeing himself and growing four tails. Yamato tried to stop him, but his jutsu fails, and Naruto begins growing a fifth tail. Sasuke demands power from Orochimaru, and screams in pain when he is branded with the Cursed Seal of Heaven. His screams snaps Naruto out of his transformation, whose chakra knocks Yamato out. Naruto reaches Sasuke, and after a few words the two begin fighting.
Naruto gathers natural energy from a shadow clone he prepared and enters Sage Mode, which catches Orochimaru's eye, despite expiring soon. Sasuke sends a Fire Release jutsu up in the sky, setting up a thunderstorm. Sasuke uses Kirin against Naruto's Rasenshuriken. Sasuke lands a blow on Naruto, who explains why he's going so far to bring Sasuke back. Naruto again channels the Nine-Tails' chakra. Itachi suddenly appears and throws himself into Sasuke's attack, getting killed in the process.
While Tsunade updates Minato on the shinobi Sasuke attacked when he left the village, Shizune arrives with news someone infiltrated the village. Pain arrives and talks to Tsunade, vowing to cause the village pain. Pain attacks the village with a gigantic Chibaku Tensei. Naruto and the others arrive in the morning to find a crater where Konohagakure was supposed to be, with the Chibaku Tensei floating above it. Neji confirms the chakra of the villagers is inside it with his Byakugan.
Naruto meets up with Sakura, who was away on a mission and is also puzzled by what happened. Sakura begins healing Naruto's injuries, and Naruto uses the time to mould sage chakra. Inside the Chibaku Tensei, Minato discovers he can't teleport outside. The Chibaku Tensei begins compacting, and Shikaku and Inoichi begin coordinating a strategy to protect the village from being crushed. Minato asks Hiruzen, Tsunade, and Kushina to help him setting up a Four Crimson Ray Formation to counter the crushing and buy them some time.
The Six Paths of Pain meet up with Naruto, who releases a shadow clone, and enters Sage Mode, and they begin fighting. Naruto manages to take out five of the six, but is pinned down by the Deva Path. Hinata comes to his rescue, but is struck down by Pain, causing Naruto to grow six tails. Pain traps Naruto inside another Chibaku Tensei.
Sakura treats Hinata's injury. Shikamaru looks up to the True: In his mind, Naruto grows angry, and demands the fox to give him more chakra, who cautions him that he can still not control its power. Kushina feels something is wrong with Naruto because the Nine-Tails' chakra in her is disturbed. Minato has Ino contact those outside, and Shikamaru updates them on what is happening outside.
Hearing about Naruto, Kushina decides to take a drastic measure. She manages to contact him in his mind. She intends to pass on her Nine-Tails entirely to Naruto, but the Nine-Tails in Naruto assures her it won't be necessary. She passes a portion of the chakra to Naruto, who manages to break through the Chibaku Tensei and defeat Pain.
Naruto tracks Nagato down, who's words remind Nagato of Yahiko, convincing him to release Konoha. Minato and Fugaku discuss Sasuke and Itachi. Sasuke attacks Orochimaru, but collapses from being poisoned. Sasuke wakes up and is approached by Sasori, who offers him Akatsuki's help in achieving his goals. Sasuke wants to destroy Konoha.
They head to search for him while Sasori reveals a mass of puppets to rule the world. Sasuke questions his decision to destroy the village. Itachi appears, alive, to help Sasuke realize the wrong path he is walking. When Konoha 11 fight Sasori and the other Akatsuki members, Sasuke joins with his former comrades. Minato and shinobi from the other hidden villages arrive to help seal away the puppets. Itachi comes to assist Sasuke and defeat the Kage puppets.
Naruto and Sasuke combine their powers to destroy Sasori. Afterwards, Naruto asks Sasuke to return home and he agrees but says he will change the world in his own way. Naruto and Sasuke fight on Orochimaru's old hide out, arguing about the past, Sasuke accusing Naruto of advancing too fast, leaving him behind.
