    Minato Namikaze (in Japanese: 波風ミナト, Namikaze Minato) is a major supporting character of the Naruto franchise. He serves as the posthumous overarching protagonist of Part I of Naruto, a major supporting character of Part II of Naruto Shippuden, and a posthumous character in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. He was the Fourth Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village (Konohagakure), and the father of the titular protagonist Naruto Uzumaki.

    Why He Rocks

    1. For his performance during the War, Minato was chosen over Orochimaru to become Fourth Hokage, and he became the Fourth Hokage at the young age of 24.
    2. His design is extremely badass.
    3. Years after Minato and Kushina graduated, Kushina was kidnapped by Kumogakure forces. Konoha mobilised its ninja to retrieve her, but only Minato noticed the strands of red hair Kushina left behind to mark their path. Minato, acting alone, rescued her from her captors. On their way back to Konoha, Minato confessed his admiration for her hair and her strength, causing Kushina – who had previously believed Minato "unreliable" and even "girly" – to fall in love with him.
    4. With his love, Kushina was able to keep the Nine-Tails sealed within her at bay. They eventually married.
    5. During the Fourth Great Ninja War, he was reincarnated by Orochimaru, and he met his son in the flesh, and they teamed up together to defeat Madara, and had a few father-son moments together.
    6. When he was reincarnated, he learned Nine Tails Chakra Mode from Naruto.
    7. He was the inventor of the Rasengan, one of the most well known jutsu in Naruto
    8. He has a great relationship with Kushina
    9. In the anime, the Third Hokage gave Minato a special task of helping Kakashi overcome the bitterness caused by his father's death and remind him of the human element of being a ninja, which he did.
    10. During his death, when he saw the Third Hokage nearby, Minato communicated to him a final request for the villagers of Konoha, to think of Naruto as a hero and not the container of the monster that caused so much death and destruction. However that sadly failed.
    11. His appearance in the first episode of Naruto was short, but epic. It made you wonder who he really was.
    12. In the Road to Ninja movie, Naruto and Sakura were transported to an alternate universe where Minato was alive, and because of this, we would get to see how Naruto's life would be like if his parents were alive, even if it was for a short time.
    13. He restored Naruto's Nine Tailed Seal when Pain attacked.
    14. While he didn't appear much in part 1 of Naruto, he did make a few cameos in flashbacks, such as the beginning of the first episode.

    The Only Bad Quality

    1. He sadly died while protecting Konoha, so he didn't appear very much
