Minato died at around 30+, Tsunade is only 50 in Part 1. Dan and Jiraiya might have noticed a kid running around her feet when they were romancing her.
You just proved that Tsunade is indeed Minato mother. 50-30 =20. Why couldn't she have a kid at that time with Dan and Jiraiya was rejected long ago.

As in, Minato isn't actually related to the Senju at all and was trained by Jiraiya, who was trained by Sarutobi, to trained directly under the Senju. In the same way Sarutobi isn't related to Senju. Although, 3/5 is still good odds for Senju's rule.
The theory is interesting, but I don't buy it one bit and think that Madara is just an old, jealous fart.
I did not say Sarutobi not being directly related. I think and totally confident that:
Sarutobi, Jiraiya, Minato
are all Senju. What is the problem with people that every time someone brings this up and it gets squashed. What does people have against Senju clan. Is someone going to say "Senju clan are totally dead forever except Tsunade".
What is Madara's revenge for then if not to wipe all the senju clan off since Uchiha and Senju clan are like fire and water. Madara still feels the pain of approx 100 or so years ago. Exactly what has generated this Naruto story if not this rivalry between Uchiha and Senju clan, and if there were no other Senju clan members then what is the reason for all this blood shed on Madara part. He won and he should be happy since there is no Senju clan blood line left (as Tsunade is too old and has no one else) whereas uchiha blood line is till there.
For Gods sake please someone read the last thing I said.
Narutos parents might be dead but where were his grandparents who are never mentioned and did not even bother to look after him from such troubled childhood?
This is the main point of the post. Is Minato son of Tsunade? is just a side question that intrgued me so i decided to share with you all.
