  • Hello everyone!! I would like to hear about your opinions regarding whether a briefing on the Namikaze Clan (Minato's Clan) should be introduced in the new Boruto Manga and Anime. Do give your comments and speculations on their background, founding, their role in the founding of Konohagakure (Or are they affiliated to another village, one which could even be of their own), their abilities (Currently they are known to have an affinity towards wind release, but according to the clan name, it is also possible that they also know water release and by extension ice release), patriarchs and notable members. Thank You

    • there is no Namikaze clan. Minato didn't belong to a clan. the Namikaze is just like the haruno, a Family not a clan. there is a difference

    • Literally one Namikaze has been shown in the series, not counting Naruto who has taken the name Uzumaki. It would seen that it is a minor family like Sakura's or Ten Ten rather than a full blown clan.

      Also when was it stated that Minato's affinity was wind?

      Well, in the fourth databook, natures were given to most of the characters, even if they've never used them in the series so far. Wind Release actually is amongst Minato's elements, along with Fire, Lightning, Yin and Yang. However, the such a statement about a Wind affinity is still incorrect, it was never said that Minato's affinity is exactly Wind Release, since the databook doesn't specify it, so it could be either Fire or Lighning as well, they have even chances with Wind.

      Naruto has his primary nature affinity to wind release, so it is obvious as of how he inherited it. Of course Kushina was also proficient in wind release, but why I am referring to Minato is, his second name Namikaze means 'waves and winds' and hence it strongly indicates his ties to wind release (just my speculation). Kishimoto himself has stated that he designed Minato based on the Shinto God 'Susanoo', the god of seas and storms. Lord Susanoo's wife was Princess Kushina, whom he saved and married after killing the Yamato-no-Orochi. This fact also makes me wonder whether the Namikaze is just merely a family name or a clan, because just like the Senju clan of the forest, it could be also the Namikaze clan of the seashore or something.

    • here is the thing drawing inspiration doesn't dictate abilities. and you are assuming he has a clan which is not true if he had a clan it would have been said so already

    • This whole Kushina x Minato thing is confusing. Should there be a Namikaze Clan, then Kushina should have been Kushina Namikaze and a member of said clan. But should the Namikaze Family just be a ordinary one, then Minato would have married into the Uzumaki Clan. Yet both kept there birth name. Were they even married? Is Naruto a bastard? Haha

    • Uzumaki clan was destroyed. People can be married and both keep their original last names.

    • There is another member of Uzumaki survives. If you guys notice it is Karin ( the girl on Sasuke' team). Orochimaru once mention she is an Uzumaki clan member (red hair).

      http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Karin You can find something about Karin here. Yeah, my mistake if you count Nagato before 4th Ninja War, he would be another Uzumaki member.

    • Clans are more of a family structure. It is a binch of inter-related families that have formed a community. Since the Uzumaki clan structure is gone, and has left only a few members of the Uzumaki bloodline alive.

      Not every family belongs to a clan. Since the Namikaze have not been mentioned to be a clan, then we assume that is a bloodline that follows a narrow familial structure (parents to children, maybe with siblings and a few cousins) rather than a a large group of families who share ancestry and are only distantly related to other families.

    • LegionZero wrote: Clans are more than a family structure.

      I changed it to be more accurate. A Clan doesn't have to be a family structure. It can be, but doesn't have to be. More than that, a clan is a political structure, where the clan head has (formal) power over the clan and it's decisions. Considering that the Uzumaki have no political structure going on, the clan can be considered lost. Alternatively, considering only he bears the name outright, Naruto and his family can be considered the "uzumaki clan", as a continuation of the clan in name only.

      Clans however, can vary in form depending on where you are on the planet. It doesn't have to be family, or it can be family mixed with non-family. Either way, what's important is that it's a political unit. E.g. the Senju clan is gone, yet senju (Tsunade) still exist. We see from Neji/Hinata that their fathers held considerable power in Konoha for instance. Sasuke's father regularly met with the family heads of his clan to arrange the coup.

      How is the Senju Clan gone? I'm sure there are survivors bound to be present other than Tsunade.

      Oh there are probably plenty of surviving Senju, but as a clan, a political strucuture? If they were still around we'd know.
