    [Theory] Why Minato Arrived First

    Honestly, it's really quite obvious. You have to take into consideration the sheer fact that he's the fastest character in the series, well, 2nd fastest. And even though you could say that both him and Tobirama can use the Flying Thunder God, and ask why he isn't there? Well, there's an explicit reason for that: [IMG] http://narutobase.net/manga/Naruto/630/18 [/IMG] As you can clearly see, Minato is holding his kunai that's indicative of his using Flying Thunder God Level 2, so that's like his top-speed mode. That's why he's there first, and if anything, I would imagine that all of the other kages, and the Orochimuddafackers, are using some variation of the Flying Thunder God with Tobirama! From here on out it's purely abstract speculation: Maybe transporting 7 people with the Flying Thunder God takes a good amount of time, I mean, a jutsu like that would probably even take a toll on the 2nd.

    1. Minato and Naruto (mentioned in anime/manga)
    2. Raikage (mentioned in anime/manga)
    3. Neither Tobirama nor Shisui (not mentioned who's faster in both anime/manga)

    Okay, so, I just want to say that I haven't made a thread in a very long time. So that's why I posted it preemptively. Sheit.

    Re: [Theory] Why Minato Arrived First

    Minato is the fastest of the past, present and future. Future Ninjas if they try their best maybe match his speed but never surpass it.

    naruto yellow flashed raikage's fastest punch, which means he's on equal terms as minato as mentioned "just like the yellow flash"
    and during his BM kakashi thought naruto his sensei cuz of his speed and clothes

    Re: [Theory] Why Minato Arrived First

    Okay, I contend that Naruto isn't the fastest really, but he is on par with Minato.

    I gave facts which was proven from the anime/manga. Right now you're giving out your opinion not a fact, so there's nothing to argue about opinion which is already proven in the anime/manga.

    Or maybe he left his FTG mark on Naruto. How else would know where to go?

    now your talking about how to use jutsus, we're talking about who's fastest.

    both minato and naruto are equal.

    minato reaches his target using a sealed kunai
    naruto reaches his target using his feet

    Re: [Theory] Why Minato Arrived First

    Unless he has pure running speed like Lee or Raikage (which the manga hasn't shown any feats of this besides Minato catching baby Naruto), it still wouldn't explain how he would FTG to the battlefield. Did he leave a mark on Naruto? Did he keep throwing his kunai far and teleporting to it like in Road to Ninja? The latter seems cumbersome.
