Known throughout the ninja world as the “Yellow Flash”, Konoha’s Fourth Hokage was praised for his speed and efficiency in battle. Namikaze Minato was trained in the ninja arts by Jiraiya (one of the Legendary Three Sannin) and is widely considered to be one of the most capable fighters in the Naruto universe. Not only does he become the fourth Hokage at a young age but also saves the Leaf village from the Nine Tails Fox by sealing half of the it’s chakra within himself and the other half in his newborn son Naruto. During the Fourth Great Ninja War his body is resurrected by Orochimaru and is finally able to fight along side Naruto against Madara and the Akatsuki. In terms of ability there are two techniques he is most known for, the first being the Rasengan which Naruto later adapts and surpasses. The second is the Flying Thunder God technique. This move allows him to teleport instantly to locations marked by kunai with special inscriptions attached to them. The Fourth Hokage is so skilled in this technique during battle that he even surpasses the Second Hokage’s ability, who happened to have created this jutsu.
