Re: Naruto Manga Chapter 595 Discussion and 596 Predictions
People are starting to over-power tobi recently, somethings need to be made clear in this whole tobi vs Minato argument.
Tobi's intangible(go through objects) ability was easily countered by Minato's speed and precision. Minato wouldn't be taken by that ability which currently no-one has been able to overcome.
Tobi's fan(Originally Madara's fan) has been shown to be able to repel a rasengan. Minato is not careless enough to go head-first with a rasengan, if he threw a kunai and it was repelled, Minato would still be able to teleport to it gaining a close-ranged where-as the fan is supposed to knock people back. If tobi dodges the kunai, Minato is able to teleport behind the person giving him an advantage.
Tobi would be able to absorb ninjutsu, in this case, being the rasengan but its a matter if he is fast enough to activate it, or if he can counter with ANYTHING at all.
Almighty Push/Universal pull would be trouble for minato but if he was caught by either I'd expect him to teleport to safety.
Robot-like abilities, Im not sure how Minato would be able to handle this so tobi would have a some-what advantage but firing rockets doesn't seem like it'd do much.
Reviving - Useless in the 1 on 1 fight
Summoning - Would be very difficult for minato to defeat the over-powered summonings such as the multiplying dog but Minato would have frog summonings to handle them as naruto did.
Soul-taking - If minato is caught it'd be dangerous but whenever he is caught he is able to freely teleport away to safety, as seen when Tobi tried to suck Minato in with his sharingan and caught him in chains.
A few points to highlight are that it is proven that Tobi does not have enough chakra to make good use of the rinnengan abilities and that is why he hasn't been using it. It would be a serious strain on him. Tobi's sharingan would be useful but the results are the same as before.
Minato was always planning on adding nature element to progress the rasengan into an even more advanced state but sadly, he died before he could finish. If minato had continued his life we can presume his advancement in sealing techniques/space-time techniques/rasengan-abilities and even sage-mode if Jiraiya wished to teach him.
Tobi did not kill the 4th hokage, he didn't even manage to scratch him. This was a short fight without showing the full extend of Minato's powers. Tobi left with multiple injuries and without one arm. It was the kyuubi that got minato struggling a little. Minato chose to die, Kushina wanted to draw the kyuubi back into her but minato chose to seal half of it within the reaper death seal using his own soul and then seal his chakra in naruto to one day meet him. He did this for the sake of naruto, kushina and the village.
Tobi has nothing over Minato.
