The Minotaur is a large humanoid bull who enjoyed causing mayhem and destruction in the city of Heraklion, the capital of Crete. When Crete's king Minos finally captured him, he requested of Daedalus and Icarus to build a large maze to keep the Minotaur imprisoned. However, the insane king only wanted to use the maze for entertainment by throwing innocent people into the maze so they could be hunted by the Minotaur.

History

In the film, Hades sends him, the Griffin, and Stheno to gang up on Hercules, but all 3 of them were defeated by a punch each from Hercules in less than a few seconds. The Minotaur was at the bottom of the pile when they landed, followed by the Griffin, then Stheo.

In the animated series, Hercules encounters another Minotaur in "Hercules and the Minotaur" and "Hercules and the Grim Avenger".

Trivia

  • In the original storyboard for Zero to Hero, the Minotaur does fight Hercules in the same way he does in the film, but instead of the Griffin and Stheno (who in the original storyboard was fought instead of Ceto), a huge green fish with a unicorn horn and a giant lobster helped the Minotaur fight Hercules.
  • In the original myth, the Minotaur was the stepson of King Minos, but in the animated series there is no mention of the two being related.
  • In the film, the Minotaur had red eyes, white straight horns, and lacked clothing and facial hair, and in the episode "Hercules and the Parents Weekend", he had purple skin as an infant (although this may be due to a lack of fur).
  • The Minotaur only speaks in "Hercules and the Minotaur" and "Hercules and the Grim Avenger". In these appearances, he is voiced by Michael Dorn as a sophisticated yet easily frustrated monster.
