- and people,.. stop with saying that Minato can only use teleportation. Almost every shinobi we've seen, used several jutsu's, and not everything he has in his arsenal.
BUT I AGREE with Artifice, that it would be awesome, if Kishi showed us in his flashbacks, that someone of Minato's calibur, could use this or that. And let us not forget; Minato showed us lots of advanced stuff during his battle against Kyuubi and Madara. Teleportation through those seals is " his mark ".
1. Minato teleported Kyuubi's blast away
2. Copied Bijuu's blast and made an un-perfect rasengan
3. Dead Demon Seal
4. Hiraishin level 1 and 2
Why even trying to use other jutsu's, when you can get your job done with your best jutsu's? Minato, Itachi's hype are so huge.. that we're excepting too much from them.
