Minato and raikage are same age.
Minato hadnt mastered rasengan when he fought A, neither did he use FTG level 2. And ur prime A couldnt tag obito (not even once).
Not to mention that minato became a jinchuriki a few minutes b4 his death. He could bijuu dama A into oblivion. Not to mention contract seals to remove trouble some abilities from his opponents (same thing he did to make sure obito could no longer control kurama).
Wow so now you think kakashi is faster than minato. DMS didnt increase kakashis spd it only allowed him access to susano, kamui shuriken and hiding btw dimensions and kamui chidori, he literally had no spd feats. Madara (so6p) is the only incarnation of madara faster than minato, and even at that, he only had reaction spd (ie dodging attacks and then countering. He never blitzed anyone).
Same with kaguya.
STOP LOWBALLING MINATO. YOU WONT GET ANYTHING OUT OF IT. OTHER THAN BEING CALLED, TRL, LWBALR.
1. So what? That doesnt change the fact they both were featless at that moment. And Minato probably died before achieving his prime, or probably not. Anyway, they were both featless when they had confrontations.
2. Adult Obito is >>>>>> base Minato in speed and reaction. He has much better feats. The Obito who fought Minato was young, featless and far below his prime.
3. How much better is FTG level 2 to the one he used against Raikage? And how much faster he became after that?
4. Prove that Minato could use Kurama's chakra when he got it. And "just before he died", well, it could be the Minato who fought Obito.
5. Contract seals, as i know, has nothing to do with abilities, but ok, maybe i am wrong. It is up to you to prove otherwise. And it is up to you to prove Minato could tag prime Ei as easily as he taged younger Ei numerous times.
6. Rikudou Kakashi is tiers above Minato's speed, if that what you are talking about. You better re-read the manga. Because it seems you dont know what you are talking about.
7. EMS Madara was faster than Minato. Madara has much better speed feats than Minato, realy. If you wanna debate about that, go to Madara Uchiha vs Minato Namikaze thread. Any vertion of Madara, except MS Madara, is faster than Minato.
8. SoSP Madara blitzed Sage Mode Edo Minato in 3 hits. And i wanna add that even 7 Gates Guy was faster than Sage Mode Edo Minato, because he did much better against SoSP Madara.
And looooool, Kaguya? You wanna mention her here? She can kill an army of Minato's easily. An army .
Plus, this thread is not about her, or SoSP Madara.
I am not lowballing Minato - its a fact his speed is overrated. He is not, and never has been, the fastest shinobi of all time.
But Itachi has even worse speed feats than Minato. KCM Naruto wasnt as fast as when he fought Raikage, because he made many clones and send them to battlefields of 4th Shinobi World War. And Itachi reacted to Kirin only thanks to his MS precognition.
