Minato Namikaze was the fourth and strongest of the Hokages, and Naruto Uzumaki's father.

Minato Namikaze, also known as Konoha’s Yellow Flash, (because of his technique) was a very talented Shinobi from the leaf village. But more than a Shinobi, he was the fourth Hokage, and most powerful of them all. Minato was trained by Jiraiya along with two other unnamed ninjas. He was taught many different techniques, including the powerful summoning jutsu and holds the record of been the only one to actually full control the powerful toad chief Gamabunta (Jiraiya himself couldn’t accomplish this). Minato was a skillful ninja and a genius at such a level that he created several jutsus, including the all-powerful rasengan (which took him three years to master) and the Flying Thunder God Technique.


  • Flying Thunder God Technique: Allowed him instant transportation, and gave him the fame of Konoha's Yellow Flash.
  • Rasengan: A destructive force of wild compress energy that delivers a devastating blow to the opponent
  • Dead Demon Consuming Seal: Summoning Death itself to do what it does best: take souls. Used to seal the Fox inside Naruto.
