Naruto’s father is a hero to all of Konoha. He sacrificed himself in order to stop the Kurama from destroying Konoha.
Minato became the Fourth Hokage of Konohagakure no Sato (Hidden Leaf Village) at age 25. He gained his nickname “Konoha’s Yellow Flash” due to his relative speed when compared to other ninjas. He had a dream of peace that could become a reality with the help of Naruto Uzumaki, whom he loved more than his own life and thus Jiraiya was instructed to teach Naruto how to control Kurama’s power.
Dealing with the Nine-Tails
Minato Namikaze’s fatherly love for Naruto was very evident in the way he taught him to control the Nine-Tails’ power. He would combine his own chakra with Naruto’s whenever the Nine-Tails took too much control and threatened to take over Naruto’s body. This helped Naruto greatly in controlling the beast so that it never fully overpowered him.

Death and legacy
Minato died sealing the Nine-Tailed Fox inside his son, Naruto. He is praised as a hero for this act by the villagers and many others who know about it, including four of the five Kage.
After Minato’s death, all shinobi worldwide were ordered to protect Naruto from Akatsuki, because he was the container of Kurama. Minato also left behind a letter for Naruto, telling him that he had always loved him as his own son.
Minato is a prime example of the success and failures of the shinobi world. His life was short, but his legacy has had a lasting impact on the world of Naruto and the shape of the shinobi world to come.
