Which one is it? Plot trap for a character reduced to crap? Or just plain inconvenience? Considering both are quintessential Kishi, we might never know...
I figured it unliminted because they could regenerate and never die. So while there may be chakra costs, it would never get to the point of collapse, coma or death. Essentially, as long as they weren't sealed, they could take damage until recovered chakra and do everything again while their mortal opponents would exhaust themselves.
However, that Minato couldn't do a specific jutsu at a specific moment is strickly plot driven circumstances, more like that not..
A simple souvenir of someone's kill
And like the sea
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
oh, how I'm breaking down
