One notable instance was during the attack of the Nine-Tailed Fox on his village when Obito unleashed the rampaging Tailed Beast from Minato’s wife, Kushina. Surprisingly, even in this life-threatening event, Minato refrained from utilizing Sage Mode.

It is possible that Minato opted not to exhaust his chakra reserves, as activating Sage Mode and harnessing its immense power demanded a significant amount of chakra.

Furthermore, when Minato enters Sage Mode, the distinctive orange pigmentation surrounding his eyes becomes evident, signifying his ability to tap into the true essence of Sage Mode.

(8) Reason Why Minato Was Unable to Maintain His Sage Mode for Too Long

However, while many believe that Minato possessed an immense chakra reserve and complete mastery over it, he openly acknowledges his inability to sustain his sage Mode for extended durations.

(9) The Forth Great Ninja War & Minato’s Perfect Sage Mode

Now, he could rapidly accumulate chakra and enter Sage Mode instantaneously, although struggled to sustain this form for extended battles. In comparison to other shinobi who possessed Sage Mode, Minato’s mastery of it appeared flawless.

(10) Minato is A Time-Constrained

Minato possessed immense prowess and mastery in various forbidden techniques and Jutsu. He was a proficient user of Sage Mode. However, he refrained from frequently utilizing Sage Mode due to his time-constrained nature.

Minato strived to conclude his battles as swiftly as possible, as harnessing Sage Mode required substantial chakra and time investment.

(11) Minato Proved That He Was A Genius Shinobi For His Fans
