Re: Itachi and Minato it ends here....
Tobi did NOT fear Itachi at all. Itachi even admitted inferiority. Tobi should also get credit since Itachi couldn't had done it himself, and it was Danzo's idea.
Itachi only succeeded in stopping a weakened Chiyo, a weakened Muu, and Kimimaro. All of the other Edos were already defeated, and Madara is boss. Itachi also had significant help from Sasuke, so they should get shared credit.
The Jinchuuriki were already defeated.
Hashirama was told that Itachi killed his own clan to save the village, to which Hashirama said that Itachi is a "better" shinobi than him since he obviously wouldn't had done that.
Itachi brutally tortured Sasuke, physically and mentally, breaking his body and making him helplessly watch his family get slaughtered for 6 days, forcing the Uchiha's curse of hatred onto him. Why? Because Itachi wanted to motivate Sasuke to kill him since he thought he should be judged by another Uchiha. Even when Sasuke started to make bonds and be happy again, Itachi ruined that, made him become an enemy of the village, and try to kill all of his friends.
Naruto/Bee also saved Itachi.
Itachi didn't make Sasuke good again. After meeting with Edo Itachi, Sasuke wanted to destroy Konoha more than ever. It was talking to the Hokages that convinced Sasuke otherwise.
