Guys just one little correction regarding the ftg. U dont need to place a kunai in an object to teleport ir or what ever.
U just need to the sealling the mark, this mark is also on his specially made kunai.
Sorry just annoyed reading if stuck a kunai here and there over and over.

The Master's Legacy
If a theory can't explain the mysteries of the past, it has little chance to explain the mysteries of the present and future.
I think that often times we also underestimate the value of looking at a fight as a learning experience for the two opponents. Fights are not one and done. Both parties learn about the other from fighting, and I think Minato from what we've seen has a precociousness to pick up things much quicker than most. His reflexes were described as "instantaneous," and once he gets a seal on you you know that you might be pretty much dead.
The main difference I think is that this main form of attack that he has is so strong that it is probably backed with his other ninjutsu and the like. Example: Naruto's clones are known to be his trademark because they can help him accomplish lots of tasks with a collaborative effort, mask his true chakra, manipulate his chakra easier, and gain more experience from battle than he would normally. But note that for someone to do that, they must split up chakra and energy. Minato basically had the same effect as the clone (in terms of appearing everywhere) except for the fact that he himself without any splitting of chakra could meet any situation. It's like PaulBee says, once he touches you, you should be dead. Throw a kunai in space or inbetween rocks or at the bottom of a trench or in a volcano or in between a coffin or something. I mean theoretically he should have a touch of death. Which is pretty scary.
So how would he deal with people who don't let him touch them? Cue Genjutsu users, clone users, long distance fighters.
Genjutus - the obvious biggest problem. Most people say its hard to react to Genjutsu. I agree. There's two types of genjutsu one has to deal with - "environmental" types, and "personal" types. Personal meaning things like Tsukiyomi, and environmental being things like changes in the abstract objective reality (which im not even sure physically exists). To avoid the "personal" ones, you have to eliminate the process in which it is sent (ie, looking into the user's eyes). For the latter, you have to sort of figure it out.
the problem is that every powerful shinobi in the narutoverse is defined by their one skill, possibly 2 skills that made them powerful. for hashirama it was his wood release, for madara it was sharingan/rinnegan, for minato it was FTG, for the 3rd raikage it was is tough body, i can go on and on. the problem gets even greater when you try and compare ppl like madara who had the OP sharingan and now the rinnegan to some1 like minato who had nothing but his own skills because then ppl will argue that the sharingan is a big part his skill and taking that out of the equation isnt fair or that you cant imagine how powerful minato would have been if he had the sharingan too etc. At the end of the day, this whole discussion is pointless because none of us are right or wrong, none of us can say that what he is saying is right nor can any1 say what he is saying is wrong. it basically comes down to opinions and arguements and not facts(which by itself is relative and prone to individual interpretation)
i think that this battle would end up in a stalemate because either opponent cannot hit the other, but i would give the upper hand to madara.
susanoo will protect madara from minatos attacks, and as minatos status stands now i see no way for him to break through. minato is too fast to hit though, it would take a lot of predictive prowess and luck for madara to guess where he is going to flash in and land a direct hit.
minato is too fast for amaterasu to hit so it comes down to tsukiyomi and susanoo
minato would of course know not to be looking in madaras eyes but hopefully he is not uchiha tactic ignorant like asuma and kurenai. to date i havent heard of madaras itachi style tsukiyomi finger cast so for now i will say that tsukiyomi is canceled out
havent seen strong enough attacks from minato to break through susanoo and theres no way to get one of his kunai inside of it once its already up like someone else was saying
result: stalemate (as post says madara and not edo tensei madara i am not factoring the rinnegan into this assesment since madara did not have it till after he had fought the first and was about to die)
StareIntoMySharingan was talking about itachi v madara, this would be a great battle but again i give the advantage to madara. itachi is so intelligent in real time situations that he would not have trouble strategizing a way to win if he was serious
also if itachi was as selfish as madara was he would definately win. itachi has this vexing selfless streak going that can and will hinder his fighting ability
[QUOTE=psukkar;922446]What about taking on a tailed beast. How many kahashi's would it take to subue the 8 tails like the third raikage?/QUOTE]
30, at least
