The Minotaur (Ancient Greek: Μῑνώταυρος [miːnɔ̌ːtau̯ros], Latin: Minotaurus, Etruscan Θevrumineś), is a creature In Greek mythology that have the head of a bull on the body of a man or, as described by Roman poet Ovid, "part man and part bull". Originally there was only one Minotaur said to exist and it was the centre of a regular sacrifice involving Athenian youths. Pasiphae cared for Asterion and as he became ferocious and monstrous and she was unable to feed or care for him any longer. The Minotaur resided within a labyrinth created by King Minos and was depicted as half-man, half-bull. The beast was eventually slain by the Greek hero known as Thesius.
Final Fantasy Mystic Quest
Minotaur was the second boss and a minor villain in the RPG game Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, where he was poisoning the forest - prompting Benjamin to stop him alongside Kaeli, a girl who also wished to see the corruption end. However when Kaeli cut down the cursed tree that was being used by the Minotaur to poison the land he attacked, poisoning her before engaging them both in battle. Eventually the Minotaur was defeated and Benjamin is sent to the Sand Temple to find an Elixir to save Kaeli's life.
The Minotaur is a monster found in the video-game "Legendary" and is based on the man-bull hybrid of legend - in the game it is depicted as a large vaguely anthropomorphic bull that attacks with a berserker rage and feral instincts such as charging on all fours, gorging with its horns and smashing through pillars and walls with its brute strength. If caught, the Minotaur will spank the hero's bottom until his health reaches zero. Minotaurs are very durable but ultimately will succumb to death if they recieve sufficent damage, so are by no means impossible to defeat.

The Minotaur somehow took refuge in the catacombs on the Isle of the Sacred Mountain. The Winged Ones were forced to make a sacrifice to the Minotaur in order to keep him from reeking havoc on their city. Alexander defeats the Minoataur in his lair by showing him the Red Queen's red scarf and tricking him into falling into a fire filled pit.
It is said that when Alexander became King of the Land of the Green Isles, another minotaur has since taken up residence in the catacombs.
