I don't think he needed it.

I don't get the feeling that Jiraiya and Naruto would ever have achieved overwhelming speed without Sage Mode. Of course, they could have trained like Lee and Gai and become gods - but I doubt Jiraiya or Naruto felt they were worthy of training with and becoming as great as Maito Gai.

Anyway...

Minato is a natural super-genius, who, according to Jiraiya, had a great work ethic to match.

No, Fukasaku stated Sage Mode was about Jiraiya/Naruto specifically. Due to their large chakra pools.

the thing is though, SM was all about achieveing raw power and not so much getting speed.

minato was already fast so him getting SM would have meant he became incredibly powerful too and his jutsu would have become much more prevelent.

such as his rasengans becoming even more beastly

Minato trained with the frogs, we know this since he had Frog summons...

But, Fukasaku clearly stated that only J-man and Naruto were right for Sage Mode.

What do you mean? Nobody "needs" to be a force-sensitive version of superman, but I fail to see how it would have hurt Minato, or anyone else, to have it in their arsenal.

More than likely Minato wasn't suited to that type of training.

While I agree with you that Minato did not have sage mode, I have to take exception to the idea that he did not need it. The beauty of sage mode is that its ninjutsu is not sui generis, it only enhances what you already have. If Minato had sage mode, he would have been able to (1) use MUCH stronger rasengan, (2) probably complete rasengan because of the chakra boost (3) automatically acquire high level genjutsu casting skills and genjutsu defense through Ma and Pa and (4) Be able to use kawazu naki in combination with hiraishin (insta-kill combo) and (5) become a greater sensor than he was

A sage mode Minato would have been unbeatable. He could literally throw a kunai and purposely miss, teleport to the kunai via hiraishin, use kawazu naki phantom punch and you are dead.

exactly my point!

minato with Sm would have been almost invincible, which is probably why kishi didnt give it to him

Minato needed to borrow chakra to transport the Kyuubi away, something that wouldn't be necessary if he had Sennin Mode.

It has been stated that you need to have a huge natural chakra reserve in order to master Sennin Mode, something Minato doesn't have. Naruto inherited his stamina from his mother, not his father.

That's not really true.... Sage mode has a number of boosts for the user, makes ninjutsu stronger, allows for invisible punches, increases physical strength etc. Sure Minato was a strong shinobi and unlike naruto doesn't need such things in order to fight top class shinobi, but it never hurts to have something to fall back on just in case.

Jiraiya was also a very strong shinobi without sage mode, but it didn't hinder him from learning it.

Great point.

...although, Minato could have been tired from the intense battle with Madara...

He didn't have Sage Mode. He likely didn't have the chakra for it. Sage Mode doesn't fit him anyway (Though it would certainly be of big use). Minato wasn't a brute type like Naruto and Jiraiya. He was a finesse type of ninja like Kakashi and Itachi.
