Minato Namikaze Jutsus


Minato Namikaze, also known as the Yellow Flash of the Hidden Leaf, is a beloved fictional character in the fan-favorite manga and its anime adaptation, the Naruto series, written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto.


Disclaimer: This article will contain details revolving around Minato Namikaze and might contain spoilers for some viewers. Readers are advised to proceed at their own discretion.


Minato was a shinobi from the Village Hidden in the Leaves and a member of the esteemed Namikaze clan. Minato was a prodigy with such natural talent and it was believed shinobi with such natural talent only comes across once in a few generations. He graduated at the top of his class and holds the highest scores in the history of the Hidden Leaf Ninja Academy.


Eventually, Minato was appointed as the Fourth Hokage of the Hidden Leaf after Hiruzen Sarutobi stepped down from his position. Although Minato had a limited appearance in the series as compared to other characters, he showcased formidable abilities and proved himself to be a force to be reckoned with. Minato possessed numerous jutsus and techniques at his disposal. Here are some of the popular jutsus that he used in the series:


Rasengan


Minato is the inventor of the A-rank jutsu, the Rasengan, which later became one of the signature moves of his son and the protagonist of the series, Naruto Uzumaki. Minato intended to add his chakra nature to the Rasengan but was unable to do so before his unfortunate demise. Although the Rasengan is an incomplete jutsu, it does not lack destructive power and potency.


Flying Thunder God Technique


Flying Thunder God Technique, popularly known as Flying Raijin Jutsu, is space-time ninjutsu developed by the Second Hokage, Tobirama Senju. Although it was not his own jutsu, Minato mastered this technique and utilized it to its maximum potential. Tobirama Senju stated that even though it was his original jutsu, Minato was a better user of this technique than he himself ever was.


Sealing Jutsu: Reaper Death Seal


Reaper Death Seal is a sealing jutsu that seals away its target’s soul in the belly of the Death Reaper Shinigami at the cost of the user’s soul sealed inside it as well. As it resulted in the demise of its user, this jutsu was classified as a forbidden jutsu. Minato used it to seal the Yin half of the Nine-Tailed Fox’s chakra and save the village.


Sage Mode


Minato had the ability to use Toad Sage Mode. Despite learning Sage Mode at Mount Myoboku, Minato was unable to keep it up for very long. He rarely utilized Sage Mode because it took time to accumulate nature energy and since he relied on speed, it made it impractical for him to use in the heat of battle. The only time Minato was seen using Sage Mode was in the Fourth Great Ninja War.


Eight Trigrams Sealing Style



Minato was rather skilled in sealing techniques of the Uzumaki Clan, which he supposedly learned from his wife, Kushina Uzumaki. Minato used the Eight Trigrams Sealing Jutsu to seal half of the Nine-Tailed Fox’s chakra inside his newborn son, Naruto Uzumaki.


Kurama Chakra Mode


Like his son, Naruto, Minato befriended the Nine-Tailed Fox, Kurama, sealed within him after his unfortunate demise. He had mastered Kurama’s chakra and utilized it to its full extent in the Fourth Great Ninja War.



Here is a list of all the jutsu that Minato possessed at his disposal:


  1. Chakra Transfer Technique
  2. Contract Seal
  3. Dead Demon Consuming Seal
  4. Eight Trigrams Sealing Style
  5. Flying Thunder Formation Technique
  6. Flying Thunder God Mutually Instantaneous Revolving Technique
