madara has the dominant abilities and power on paper
but he is also VERY overconfident
i could see minato winning almost any battle so long as he plays his cards right
that doesnt mean he should be the favorite against madara, but it would be foolish to automatically assume minato would lose
With the Sharingan's perceptional ability the user notices even the slightest of details immediately. Any Uchiha worth a damn would notice the seals on Minato's Kunai as soon as he pulls it out of his pouch... and since they have no idea what those seals can do (explosive tags or whatever), they'd come to the conclusion simply sidestepping or parrying them would be an unnecessary risk.
Most likely any of Minato's Kunai targeting the Uchiha would get deflected by Shuriken's thrown into their path... which means a speedblitz is very unlikely, even when disregarding Susanoo.
I think Madara or Itachi don't have such low observation skills as to allow themselves to be marked. Specially Itachi who proved how fast he can be.
While I don't give Minato much of chance against either of them, it has to be known that in any taijutsu exchange he could tag them and they wouldn't know it.
The key for either of them is that Itachi primarily uses Genjutsu, so it's very likely Minato would never engage the real him.
And Madara utilizes long range attacks and abuses the shit out of Sussano. So the likelyhood of Minato getting near him isn't very high.
As for Hirashin 2.0, I never saw how it was different from level one other than Minato going to a moving kunai.
Even still, the idea of Minato getting close enough to tag one of them, more so close to Itachi, is something that may never happen.
This thread is now closed it has a continuation thread Here
Well, if Minato doesn't use the jutsu then he can hide it. How would Madara know about HIraishin anyway, considering Minato rose to prominence while Madara was underground attached to the Mazou? Itachi would know about Hiraishin though, but it's probably a moot point as Itachi could get Minato in a genjutsu right off the bat. But when did Itachi serve under Minato? He wasn't even out of the academy yet....
Me either, but I guess teleporting to a moving seal is infinitely more difficult? Could also be an asspull to beat Tobi. I can see Minato getting close enough to Madara if Madara charges at him. It'd be hard to hit MInato because of his speed/reflexes.

Madara saw Naruto coming - it may be like Hiraishin but it's still footspeed, somethin that Sharingan can predict. Hiraishin is reverse summoning so Sharingan shouldn't be able to track it.
