What if Minato was a Senju

Family trees

Rikudou Sennin

The Rikudou Sennin had two sons, whose descendants founded the Uchiha clan and the Senju clan.

The Uchiha clan died out at the beginning of the series. Only Sasuke and Tobi, who claims to be Madara Uchiha, are still alive because Itachi exterminated the clan and only spared his brother. Itachi later died of an unknown illness while fighting Sasuke.

The clan lived in the Uchiha district in Konohagakure and operated the Konoha military police.

The head of the clan was Madara Uchiha, the most powerful shinobi among the Uchihas. Together with Hashirama Senju he founded the first hidden village: Konohagakure no Sato. However, since Hashirama was Madara's archenemy, Madara attacked him with the help of the Kyuubi, but was defeated. According to Tobi, Madara did not really die, but lived on and is now, as Tobi, the leader of Akatsuki.

The Kekkei Genkai of the clan is the Sharingan. The innate element is katon.

At the top of the Senju clans stood Hashirama Senju, who was considered the strongest shinobi of all time. When he negotiated a peace treaty with the Uchiha clan after countless wars, they founded the first hidden village together: Konohagakure no Sato. Hashirama became the Shodai Hokage. He was succeeded by his brother Tobirama Senju. Touka Senju was another member of the clan, but not much is known about.

Tsunade and Nawaki are grandchildren of the first Hokage. In this family, the will of fire, which represents the need for protection for Konoha and its inhabitants, is very strong. Of the well-known Senju descendants, only Tsunade still lives.

Furthermore, the Uchiha and the Kaguya clan could be closely related, since the eldest son of Hagoromo Ootsutsuki, Indra Ootsutsuki, has characteristics of both clans.

Sarutobi clan

At the top of the Sarutobi clans is Hiruzen Sarutobi, who was elected third Hokage after Tobirama Senju. His son is Asuma Sarutobi and his grandson is Konohamaru, who is the son of Hiruzen's unknown second child.

Kurenai Yuuhi, the partner of the late Asuma, is expecting a child from him.

The Sarutobi clan is characterized by the will of fire, which represents a strong need for protection for Konoha and its inhabitants. For Asuma, the king in the Japanese game of chess was not the Hokage, but the unborn children of Konoha, who represent the future and hope.

Hyuuga clan

The Hyuuga clan is a clan divided into the main family and the secondary family. So the firstborn always belongs to the main family, and the younger sons form the secondary family. All members of the secondary family have the Hyuuga Souke no Juin-Jutsu stamped on their foreheads, which can be activated by a finger signal from a main family member. When activated, the mark causes unspeakable pain for the wearer and can even lead to death. This uses the main family so that the secondary family can never oppose it. Furthermore, the mark seals the eyes of the wearer when they die, so that the eyes cannot be stolen by anyone.

Since only the main family is initiated into all the secrets of Byakugan, it is almost impossible for a member of the secondary family to become as good a member of the main family. That is why Neji is also considered a genius after being able to perform the Hakke Shou Kaiten excellently.

The Kekkei Genkai of the clan is the Byakugan. Her sublime juuken tai jutsu fighting style is her trademark.

Namikaze / Uzumaki

Naruto Uzumaki is the son of Minato Namikaze and Kushina Uzumaki. Kushina comes from the Strudel Empire, but later lived with Minato in Konohagakure. When Minato was already an excellently trained shinobi under Jiraiya's guidance, he was expecting a child with Kushina. Minato decided to name his unborn son "Naruto" because that was the main character in Jiraiya's book The Legend of the Brave Ninja, and Minato hoped that his son would become as strong-willed as the protagonist. According to Kushina, the Uzumaki clan is related to the Senju clan by blood.

Minato died in the Kyuubi's attack on Konoha when he saw the Shiki Fuujin as a last resort to defeat the Kyuubi. This jutsu inevitably leads to death. With his last strength he also used the Hakke no Fuuin Shiki on his child, which sealed half the strength of the Kyuubi in him and thus made him a Jinchuuriki. Kushina died when Minato sealed her up in Naruto so that one day she could see her son again.

According to Tobi, Nagato also belongs to the Uzumaki clan because of his red hair.

Karin also belongs to the Uzumaki clan.
