This thread will most likely be flamed by Minato fans but I'm going to go ahead anyway. This thread is to show why A beats Minato(or draws if Minato uses Reaper Death Seal)
Fourth Raikage vs Fourth Hokage
The rasengan is Minato’s only offensive Ninjutsu but he uses in really well. He can combine this with FTG to combine a deadly combo. The fact that it requires no seals allows him to combine it with FTG easier. Minato’s rasengan is larger than Naruto’s normal one and is roughly the size of Naruto’s Odama Rasengan. However it will not be able to pass the
4th Raikage’s defence due to it being an attack that uses blunt force rather than a stabbing attack. Minato also has the summoning jutsu which allows him to summon toads. However if he tries to use the foodcart destroyer on A then it will just be a waste of chakra since he will easily be able to dodge it.
Minato was famous for his unique space–time technique, the Flying Thunder God Technique, which essentially allowed him to teleport to any location. I believe that FTG however is very limited because Minato needs a kunai at that position to teleport to it. His teleportation is able to outshine other speed monsters like Naruto and A. Minato can also form a barrier that can redirect incoming long-range attacks even an attack as powerful as TBB from the 9-tails.
Minato was quite proficient in sealing (fuinjutsu) and had an Uzumaki(who are known for their sealing) as a wife.
Minato is able to use complicated sealing jutsu’s like the 8 trigrams seal and the 4 symbols seal which Killer Bee stated was more intricate and durable than his own seal. Minato’s ultimate sealing move is the Reaper Death seal which seals both Minato and his opponent.
Minato is one of the smartest in the series and is also very strategic. He was able to work out Tobi’s weakness and even managed to do something with that information. He is also able to keep calm in difficult situations as when Tobi had the upper hand in their fight.
How the 4th Raikage would beat Minato
1) Can tank all of Minato’s attacks
A can tank all of Minato’s attacks and most of his sealings will be useless against A.
2) A only needs one attack
A only needs one attack to connect with Minato to win the fight. While Minato would need loads to even start injuring A and when one of A’s punches is that close
to hitting Minato.
3) Minato unable to tag A
Minato would be unable to tag A with a seal because of his Lightning Armour and if he tried to he would get electrocuted.
4) Special theory
If A breaks one of Minato’s kunai and then dashes at him and Minato tries to teleport to the kunai(that A has broken) and it will fail. And that split-second that his teleport fails A could hit him. Also Minato is not able to feel if one of his kunai is broken.
5) Large scale attacks could mess up Kunai
Large scale attacks would mess up the positioning of Minato’s kunai and might even teleport him in front of A’s attack. Also if he smashes the ground near him then could stop Minato from teleporting into his immediate vicinity. And if one of his kunai goes underground and Minato teleports to it then he would have killed himself.
6) Speed Blitz before Kunai’s are ready
In the fight they had in the manga A waited for Minato to get out his Kunai and scatter them around instead of just rushing to him before he got his Kunai ready. This was because of plot.
7) A could use Gamabunta against Minato
A could severely injure Gamabunta with a few of his full power punches and he is capabale of doing so since he was able to slam the 8-tails onto the ground. A could even use Gamabunta against Minato because his attacks are very devastating and would destroy some of Minato's kunai. Minato doesn't have the strength to stop A's assault on Gamabunta and is not stupid enough to try.
8) Which will last more A’s endurance or Minato’s stamina ?
A has more chakra than Minato which would potentially help him to outlast Minato since he would soon run out of chakra dodging all of A’s attacks. So even if A doesn’t hit him Minato could still lose because of exhaustion. Minato will no doubt manage to hit the 4th raikage a number of times but the amount of times both of them need to hit eachother to win the match is too large. Remember A only needs one hit to win while Minato would need dozens to even injure A. If the fight lasts long then it would come down to stamina which A wins in.
But Minato could use Reaper Death Seal which would end the fight in a draw.
So this is the end of my thread. . Hope you enjoyed it and even if you don’t agree with it please respect the effort I put into it.
