leader of the village, the Fourth Hokage sacrificed his life to seal the Nine-Tails into a

Trivia
Gaara died during the Kazekage Rescue Mission after Akatsuki extracted his tailed
beast from inside him. He was, however, revived by Chiyo.
In a similar manner Fukasaku, Kakashi Hatake, Shizune and several other unnamed
Konoha shinobi died during Pain's Assault. They were, however, revived
by Nagato's Outer Path: Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique.
