The only real predictable gift would be Kurama's other chakra half, but how boring is that?
I hope Kishi does something unpredictable here!!
I don't want to see the manga end with Naruto being dependant on the tailed beasts, he'd better grow some real powers on his own, or I'll facepalm at the story at the end.
What was the point of all the other techniques he learned in the past, heck what about Naruto's other chakra element? What happened to his Wind element? What happened to Sage mode? Heck even Hirashima has Sage mode, and he's the strongest in recent history, so why can' Naruto go down a similar path?
I can only accept the gift being Kurama's other half, if Naruto actually looses the Kurama at some point, and has to learn to fight on his own.
The world could think it's doomed, but Naruto will have to raise up and become the strongest to ever in history with or without the great Sage of the six paths, I wouldn't accept anything else after all this hype.
Not to sound annoyed, but I've had enough of Kyuubi mode, it's super boring, and the story is loosing touch with its past events, just saying.
Even with Kyuubi can't do a thing against the Juubi. Even with Bee Naruto was having so much trouble against the Juubi.

Actually naruto did cut his tail with the FRS, the alliance was just behind him
From the looks of it, it was the Alliance who did it, not just Naruto even though the Alliance was behind him.
Actually, one present I'd like Minato to give to Naruto is his cloak. It looks so much better than Naruto's cloak when he fought Pain.
It will obviously be the other half of the Kyubi, and Naruto will be able to let him loose and not just sit inside his body.
It will be an ultra summon with a much stronger Kyubi than ever before.
After reading the posts in this thread I have come to this conclusion. The fight between Good and Bad is more like 40/60 in Bad's favor and Naruto definitely could use the other half of Kurama's power regardless of what has happened prior. And that is hoping that the other half of Kurama is the gift Minato will give Naruto (which is almost a given but I'll leave a 2% chance that it could be something else, who knows.)
you could be right, but i only follow the wiki
Explain how he managed to cut two of its tails when there was only one of him or how he even managed to cut the thick tail off with just a FRS. STILL does not change the fact that I think it was the Alliance who did the work, not just Naruto.
I don't think it's the first time, and the way he's used it means there is no cutting power. It'd be more like the FRS used against Kakuzu, Kyuubi, or Nagato's dog. The only FRS with cutting power is his Sage Mode FRS where he throws it.
This seems to indicate that it's not raw power you need to take down the Juubi, but rather requires a special skill set.
Notice how Hirashima could handle the full power of the Kyuubi without any monster within himself and the Great Sage could handle the Juubi without any monster within him.
If Naruto is to be the strongest, at least from the point after the great Sage, then he has to surpass them.
If by surpassing said power is by using that said power, then you haven't surpassed that power to begin with, you merely used it yourself.
See how this can be a problem? The story is contradicting itself, even in some aspects running in circles, and it has loose ends to boot, it's a weird cocktail.
Sure this is a shounen, but it better play out more intelligently than this, and therefore I'm against Minato's gift being the other half of the Kyuubi's chakra, cause it'll only reinforce the low storytelling.
If Minato has something else for Naruto, or if Naruto will loose Kurama eventually despite of getting the other Kyuubi half back, then I'm all in for it, but if the manga ends with Naruto only usng Kurama, then I for one will feel greatly disappointed.
