Nagato was younger then Minato, as he and the other orphans were still teenagers during the Third War while Minato was already an adult. So his ages would have lied somewhere between Kakashi's and Minato's.
The 3rd war involved Konoha, Iwa, Kumo, and Ame, hence when we see Danzou and Hanzou ambush Nagato's forces took place sometime during the 3rd War.
I was unsure whether or not I should read through this storm of posts, but I learned a lot lol.
Karin = Uzumaki and Nagato is younger than Minato.
The proof being that Nagato was around when his Uzushio nation got wiped out so he had to live in Ame and that he was a young teen in the 3rd World War while Minato was an adult.
J-Man found Nagato, Yahiko and Konan in the 2nd ninja war not third. Also you can measure it by J-Man's eye lines ... when he meets Nagato they reach his cheek bones ... when he is with Minato they go all the way down to his jaws

Minato can't be younger. He was an adult jounin during the Third War, whereas Nagato and co were still teenagers when they fought during it. The face lines don't really mean anything considering they're drawn on.

also it was never stated that Nagato and co. fought in 3rd ninja war .. it was some war it has never been specified which one ... it could have been ending of 2nd war ... or another war altogether
And it was the Third War as Jiraiya didn't begin training them til after the Second War had ended. Anyway, the incident with Hanzo and Yahiko dying happened in the middle of a war between Konoha, Iwa, and Suna, which was the Third Ninja War.
If Kushina has the same age of Yondaime, then Nagato is indeed younger, probably.
Remember that Kushina was "shipped" from Uzugakure to Konoha to host the Kyuubi, when Uzu was still standing, and she was, like, 4-5 years old.
On the other hand Nagato, as a kid, lived ( and was likely born ) in Ame probably because Uzu was already destroyed, very much like Karin that was a Kusa ninja. Uzumakis scattered all around the world after the fall of Uzu.
So Nagato being older really doesn't make too much sense
Nagato couldn't been older. The timeline simply doesn't fit with all that we've seen. Not only was Minato clearly an adult, but he was a jounin already with a squad of chuunin-rank students before the Third War. Meanwhile, only a few years had pass since they were 13 years old and Jiraiya left, before they got involved in the Third War. In addition, Jiraiya's book that he wrote while training the Ame Orphans wasn't read by Minato til he and Kushina were about to have Naruto, after the Third War, which makes little sense unless it had only recently been finished.
And dose that mean that when Minato was training his squad , Jiraiya was training the orphans....3 years later he returned to the hidden leaf and the 3rd war began in which Nagato was in his early 20s and minato was in his late 20s so i would say minato is maybe 5-8 years older then nagato
Yeah Jiraiya mentioned the book was a flop, which would have been old news if it had been on sale for a long time.
whose lines mean timeline ... it only makes sense ... when he is kid there are virtually none and when he gets older it grows ... Did Kishi messed up? Maybe but those line suggest he met Nagato before training Minato ... it doesn't make that it would follow time everytime but in this instance ...
aalso those 3 countries were at war during second ninja war .. who says it must have been third war when they dided ... it could have been just the end of the second ninja war ... it just stretched that long
also Madara died pretty young ... it couldn't have been few years before 3rd ninja war he would be about 80 years old ... then he would have been revived as an old dude
