Re: Minato's Gift.
To be fair to KYF I'm going to ignore points 2 and 3 and the subsequent post he's written in this thread.
But given the way the manga has proceeded I think point one could easily happen.
We all believe naruto is going to get the Kyubi half that is in Minato. Since Minato is using the Kyubi chakra (and give that the way this works has been explained to us previously) the Kyubi in him would normally be leeching his chakra unless it voluntarily chose not to. So when it goes over to naruto it should be pumped up with extra power.
Another point is that it could also be share its experience when it merges with its other half, allowing for naruto to learn his dads techniques, it may even be that his dad doesn't get a chance to pull of that technique he's been trying but naruto does instead.
As someone else mentioned about sasuke doing jack all so far, he might be the cover whilst naruto is learning all this from the kyuubi.
@kyf - you may get a little more appreciation if you limited you posts sometimes (I know I can't talk as I ramble one plenty, but still IMO you had one decent point and 2 crap ones)
