Minato’s Team in Naruto

Minato is a character from Naruto, and Naruto Shippuden, and is the fourth Hokage. Although he doesn’t play a prominent role in Naruto apart from that of a deceased hero, he becomes a much more active character in Naruto Shippuden.



Minato’s team consists of Kakashi Hatake, Obito Uchiha and Rin Nohara. Out of the members in the team, only Kakashi Hatake is alive as of now. The rest have died due to various reasons.

Formation and History of Team Minato



Team Minato was formed right after the trio graduated out of school. They were assigned to Minato Namikaze, a prodigal ninja who was called the saviour of the world. Minato taught them many things and emphasised on the importance of teamwork.



Kakashi Hatake always failed to capture this, since he himself was a prodigy. He believed in his ability to get things done by himself and always prioritised the mission over comrades. Eventually, the team participated in the Chunin exams, with only Kakashi Hatake passing.



Minato Namikaze was given a duty during the Third Shinobi war so the team’s leadership was temporarily given to Kakashi Hatake since he was already a jonin. However, they had an encounter with Iwagakure’s Ninja, who captured Rin Nohara. But while trying to rescue her, Obito lost his life and he gave Kakashi Hatake his Sharingan as a parting gift.



In another instance, Kakashi and Rin are sent on a mission yet again. During this encounter, Rin is made the Three Tails Jinchuriki by the enemy shinobi. Realising this, Rin asks Kakashi to kill her but he refuses. However, Rin jumps on Kakashi’s Lightning Blade, taking her own life. Obito, who was presumed dead, had been saved by Madara Uchiha and sees Rin being killed by Kakashi.



With now Kakashi, Obito and Minato being the only ones alive, Minato becomes Hokage, Kakashi joins the Anbu and Obito becomes an unknown rogue Ninja under the names Tobi and Madara Uchiha. By this time, Team Minato naturally disbanded.



Obito then launches an attack on the Hidden Leaf using the Nine Tails causing Minato to die. Kakashi believes he is the last member of the original team but is proven otherwise when he faces off against Obito in the Fourth Ninja war. After Minato is reincarnated, three of the original team reunite.
