I'm still not entirely sure who wins this, but that's because Minato has as about as much of an opportunity for instapwnage as Itachi does. Throw kunai, teleport, Rasengan, GG. That vs...look at you, Tsukuyomi, GG.
@xXan - I'm not sold on him activating it quicker than Hiraishin, which let Minato teleport twice in basically a second, vs. Raikage. Raikage seemed to think he could counter it if he tried again, so who knows...but for now, I'm not convinced.
All i have to say is how the hell did Itachi beat Tobi and how did Minato beat Nagato? This "tournament" is going exactly how i predicted. Naruto vs Minato in the finals. Demi god vs demi god lol.
I remember the how intense the original "Itachi vs Minato" thread was...none of the debaters came out on top.
The "Minato never fell to genjutsu" argument uses very broken logic and we can easily turn that around and say "Itachi never fell to Hiraishin". Also, this kind of logic defeats the purpose of the fight threads in general, which is to compare their known abilities and feats to determine a winner.
Minato has a real shot at winning, but IC he would look in Itachi's eyes and get hit by genjutsu.
Are you going to instantly give your vote to Minato now?
Raikage is looking back in Minato's direction so he noticed where he disapeared. Then here:
He again is looking back at Minato. He just can't dodge it. Itachi would have no problem using Susano at that moment. But of course Itachi is just going to genjutsu him and any Kunai trowen at him Minato will be forced to teleport right in front of Itachi and that will not work.
Add the fact that Minato starts by trowing his kunai about giving lots of time to Itachi to summon a clone and/or using genjutsu. Its not like Itachi is just going to sit there and do nothing in that time. Also the time it takes for the Kunai to get to Itachi its enough time for Minato to end up in genjutsu.
Go ahead and post counters to Itachi's main way of fighting because you showed none.

minato was a genious,the best genious of ever it seems.then he wouldn't fail against genjutsu,that need intelligence to be used and to be countered. of course itachi is better than minato in genjutsu,and the hypnotic sharingan would be a pain in ass for minato. but amaterasu can be avoided with the shunshin,as did A. susanoo can be avoided too,and tsukuyomi would be very dangerous but minato would be smart enough to attack itachi before being defeated.
No matter how this fight goes, it's too quick for chakra to become a factor, IMO. It's a very quick fight, less than a minute, really.
