    From what I've seen Itachi seems like a better strategist than Minato

    Minato's a great strategist but Itachi seems for efficient, skilled and better strategically than Minato. His quickness to exploit Nagato's weakness and to exploit Kabuto's weakness surpass that of Minato's exploitation of Obito's weakness.

    I speak the truth but I guess
    that's just a foreign language
    to y'all.

    How does one surpass the other? All 3 are really good feats.

    Re: From what I've seen Itachi seems like a better strategist than Minato

    His feat of stopping CT was not of his own doing. He had assistance from Bee and Naruto. Also Naruto was one of the few people on the planet that had full knowledge of all of Nagato's abilities. This is the only reason he was able to stop CT.

    As for Kabuto, he didn't really need a strategy, he just abused an OP technique without the worry of losing his eyesight because he was already dead anyways.

    All in all I think Minato exceeds Itachi in the intelligence department, but only just slightly.

    Re: From what I've seen Itachi seems like a better strategist than Minato

    Neither of them have any notable strategical feats in the manga , what you're referring to is their analytically ability. Which I agree that Itachi seems to be more analytically capable than Minato....


    His feat of stopping CT was not of his own doing.
    It's not about stopping the technique.. it was about breaking down how the technique works and quickly coming up with a counter... while bee and naruto basically gave up.. he analyzed the technique in seconds, and gave them a lesson on keeping calm etc...


    When kabuto used the sound genjutsu, he once again , in seconds strategically came up with the plan to overlap genjutsu's with Sasuke...


    Minato figured out how tobi's kamui works.... So did fu, torune and many other ninjas.. I won't comment on his intelligence(considering he lacks alot of manga time), i'll just say, there's no way he's above Itachi with that alone..

    Re: From what I've seen Itachi seems like a better strategist than Minato

    Itachi also figured out Obito's weakness. Faster than Minato did, too.

    (Before some idiot says it's just a movie: the movie was written by Kishimoto. AKA canon.)

    Re: From what I've seen Itachi seems like a better strategist than Minato



    Minato was more analytic than Itachi. He figured out Tobi's Kamui like no other Sorry Owarij, but Fu and Torune had just scratched the surface,

    As far Minato, I'll suggest this : Ending Minato vs Tobi/Obito direct eye contact myth

    Also Itachi always thought that Obito was Madara, so another fail on his part

    Itachi needed another chance [ET] to convince Sasuke which also happened by luck because the Hokages got summoned [all credit to suigetsu and kabuto]

    But Minato's plan of mere minutes succeeded as seen here

    When Minato couldn't hit Obito, his resolve was to go faster. I don't see any analyzing skills in that.

    well itach has had many more fights that we have seen than minato. so we really dont have alot to compare each to.

    But i would say they are about equal.

    Re: From what I've seen Itachi seems like a better strategist than Minato

    Like Owarij said what you talk about is analysis, not strategy, but in terms of analysis, Minato is quite above him:

    - Minato discovered and exploited Obito's weakness all that in mere seconds while fighting someone who knew everything on his fighting style since he was his student when he knew nothing of his opponents new found level of power. Itachi on the other hand never knew the secret behind Obito's jutsu like Obito said himself when he attempted Amaterasu on him, when in the contrary of Minato, he had decades to watch over him

    - Itachi had much more time to think of plans than Minato, yet Minato's plan were the one to succeed when Itachi's failed

    - Minato was actually one of the rare people who never believed in the Tobi = Madara thing after observing him for just seconds, when Itachi with decades going around and watching over Tobi(who even was his mentor) always believed he was Madara

    - Minato predicted Naruto to be the savior of the world, he predicted the masked guy to be the hardbringer of disaster like he saw thru Bee's motivation of becoming strong(because of A's words) just by observing him once, something that A himself only noticed decades after

    In fact, Minato's insight is quite formidable and what's even funny about it is that the guy doesn't even have sharingan or super eyes but it's almost as if he had it. The guy can basically predict future lol

    Wait what? Itachi did kno the secrect of Orbito space time jutsu he most likely used izanagi to escape Amaterasu..you don't even kno how long it took itachi to come up with that plan of his..minato plan worked an itachi's did not that's wrong cuz they both hit orbito so what are you talking bout? Nether of them killed him...I believe minato did believe it was madara an also I don't think Orbito ever said he was madara to minato where as he told itachi he was madara leaving itachi with no other choice to go with the madara thing even gave him history about madara an everything..

    Of course his prediction about naruto being the savior was gone be true he's the main character of the show..kabuto said itachi was unlike anyother ninja because he could read what you do befor you even do it with or with out the sharingan.

    lol

    itachi spying akatsuki for years, sets a trap on sasuke's eye to kill tobi but failed miserably.

    minato saw tobi once, fought tobi for 5mins and defeated him in one shot.

    now who's a better strategist?

    manga page pls??

    he cant use perfect izanagi because he dont have senju cells, so dream on fanboy.

    itachi doesn't have infinite tsukuyomi, you need juubi to perform that according to madara.

    itachi never controlled a single ninja in the manga <---fixed lol
