This event gained him the nickname, The Yellow Flash of the Leaf Village.
After the war ended, Hiruzen Sarutobi, Third Hokage of the Leaf, shouldered all the blame for the war and stepped down from his position. Minato was named the Fourth Hokage of the Hidden Leaf.
During the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox’s attack on the hidden leaf, Minato confronted and battled against the masked man, later revealed to be Obito Uchiha, who was behind the fox’s attack on the village. Minato was able to deduce his ability’s weakness and attacked him with a combo of FlyingRaijin and Rasengan. The masked man was forced to retreat. Later, Minato divided Nine-Tails Chakra and sealed half of it in his newborn son, Naruto Uzumaki with 8 Trigrams Seal and sealed the other half in himself with the use of Reaper Death Seal. He died as a consequence of using the Reaper Death Seal.
