The title say it all but i not looking for flame war.I just curious about people opinion because of all these praises in this forum is not important enough for people to view him as strong as itachi and others.We donot know how much battle he won or lose in the past
Minato skill from what we saw is basically
Contract seal:This make the user remove the seal between the summoner and the beast or summon entity.How many people use or how often people rely on summoning jutsu in kombat in the manga
Flying thunder god:The place a seal on several kunai which allow him to port to the location of the kunai.
Disadvantage:IF the oponent get rid of the kunai from the field then Minato is helpless because his base speed is not impressive
Resengan :This is basically large amount of chakra molded into a ball.
Diadvantage:From seeing all naruto resengan ,his oponent still survive after a hit from it.Even resengan sharingan kakuza was able to talk afterward for sometime.Resengan not a one hit move .
Death god reaper ;This is basically summoning a Shinigami hovers to capture the user oponent with it hands.The shinigami must pass it hand to the user to grab the oponent.
Disadvantage:This basically a close range technique and it also require the oponent to be in one spot or held down.Anyone can escape it by staying far and avoiding the user of the death reaper seal.Hiruzen was able to use this jutsu effectively because he use bringer of darkness first to make the oponent lose his sight or sense of direction but minato have not shown knowledge of that jutsu
Summon toad jutsu:This is the only thing i believe make minato good because each toad have it own element and kombat style.Hower they are large and will not be miss by any strong jutsu like amaterasu as an example.
From what i seen minato only faught twice in the manga ,he shown little feature from other ninja in the manga but people think he invincible .We donot know if minato have other jutsu or he just spam like naruto the jutsu we seen in the manga.
1.Minato faught killerbee and A :
Minato using taijutsu and FTG to fight A and killerbee.A was very young at that time and he did not use version 2 of his speed against minato,that how minato was able to dodge the attack.Version 2 chakra mode cause A hair to raise as we seen when he faught sasuke.I just find the battle was not impressive from minato side.
2.Minato faught Obito
We found out that obito was truly Tobi who faught minato.If obito was to truly kill minato in the past then it will happen but minato got plot shield because we saw how obito true fighting style against kakashi and other in the war arc.Obito was fighting his teacher ,therefore there was some emotional held back for obito.
