Honestly, that's kind of irrelevant. Kishi just needed easily replicatable powers to create some kind of challenge against Ninja Jesus without things being anticlimatic. For all the power of Naruto and Madara, Obito could just suck them up into his dimension along with Kakashi and Black Zetsu, leave them all there and implant Madara's other Rinnegan/EMS. Certain abilities just trump raw power.
For all the Hashirama hype, he's still being balanced to give Naruto a legit big battle when combined with Uchiha ultra hax. Meanwhile, Minato was created without any regard for balance. Chakra levels? Can pull off a boss-level summon, teleport Kurama, two Tailed Beast Bombs, summon the Death God, and drag out half Kurama's chakra without ever complaining about his chakra levels. FTG limitations? Pretty much all tossed out the window. He can apply the seal instanteously on a target with touch, can transport to the seal while it's motion, and he can carry over 70 of his special kunai
. No landscape changing tech? Not a problem, he can teleport those jutsu away to any location of his choosing, permitting him to instantly kill users of such jutsu by teleporting them into the user's body.
