The fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze, sacrificed his life to seal Kyuubi, alo the nine-tailed, in Naruto's body. This was namely released by an unknown person and threatened to destroy the village.

He has always been considered very talented and yet not conceited, and not only because of that, was popular with a lot of people. Before the time when he became Hokage, but already after the mission with his old team 4, on which Obito died, he met his future wife and Naruto's mother, Kushina Uzumaki. In addition, Minato was a student of Jiraiya, along with two other, previously unknown people. He adored him very much and once said that he couldn't imagine a better ninja than Jiraiya and that everyone should take an example from him. Minato was also a big fan of Jiraiya's first book, in which Jiraiya described his adventures. He liked the book so much that he and his wife Kushina decided to name their unborn son exactly as the book's hero: Naruto. However, he soon had to sacrifice his life and give Naruto, his own son, a heavy burden, namely the Kyuubi. He made this decision because the unknown person, after Minato defeated him, said that one day he would destroy the village and rule the world. Since Minato thought he was very strong, he decided to entrust the kyuubi to his son. He figured that only Naruto could master and control the power of the nine-tailed man and then one day defeat this mysterious person.
