Minato was an extremely active and fast Ninja and the mentor of old Team 7, i.e. Kakashi, Rin, and Obito. He became the fourth Hokage and the one who saved the village by sacrificing his own life. He was the one who sealed nine-tails fox in Naruto and landed a hard Rasengan on Obito. There is more to discuss. So hold tight.
How Old Was Minato When He Became Hokage?
We just read that he became the Fourth Hokage of the leaf but how old was he when he got the highest title of the village? He became Hokage when he was 21 years old. He was extremely talented and intelligent that he gain the highest title at this early age. First Orochimaru was considered for the fourth Hokage but the council didn’t choose him and gave the title to extremely smart Ninja, Minato. After the attack of Nine-tails on Konoha, YonDaime and Kushina sacrificed their life and saved Naruto from the aftermath of Obito. At the time of his death, he was 24 years old which means, he remains Hokage only for 3 years still managed to create a legacy that will inspire the new shinobi for ages to come.
Minato had tonnes of abilities as a shinobi. He had a large chakra reserve and was able to summon giant Toad leader, Gamabunta. He gained mastery in Teleportation Jutsu. All he needs to do is mark the opponent and then he can instantly teleport toward the opponent and the mark never fades until their death. He was the one who created Rasengan and Dead Demon Sealing Jutsu. Due to his large chakra reserve, he was able to learn Sage Mode from Mount Myoboku. At the time of his death, he became the Jinchuriki of Ninetails as he sealed half the powers of Nine-Tails within himself. Apart from all these abilities, he was extremely smart and intelligent. When he became Hokage, he marked every place of Konoha with his chakra so he can reach that place instantaneously in case if there is a threat.
When Did Minato Meet Naruto?
Yes, you read it right. Naruto does meet his father in the series. Naruto met Minato when he was fighting with the Pain. When Pain knocked down Hinata, Naruto could not stop himself from the wrath of Nine-Tailed Chakra and he decided to open the seal of Ninetails to get the extreme power. As he untighten the seal, Minato’s chakra get activated and there he met with his father. He talk for some time and Minato told him about his mother and what happened on the day he was born. Minato tightens the seal again and told Naruto to not get lost in disillusion. He encouraged him to walk on the right path and then fades away. These all things happened in the 168th episode of Naruto Shippuden which you can watch from here.
