The Minotaur (ミノタウロス,   Minotaurosu) is an ancient kaiju created by Hanna-Barbera that appeared in the 1978 Godzilla episode, "Island of Lost Ships."


The Minotaur was called upon by the Siren Sisters to chase Captain Majors and Brock when they journeyed into its maze. Before the Minotaur could capture them, Pete and Godzooky saved them. The Minotaur then left its maze and returned to its statue-like state until being called once again, this time to capture Pete and Godzooky. The Minotaur almost caught them, but Pete made a plan to trap it. He lured it toward a small room and Godzooky pushed it in. Pete managed to get out in time as Godzooky closed the door to the room where the Minotaur was now trapped in.


The Minotaur does not have any known powers.


  • During the episode, the Minotaur's bottom teeth change from sharp to smooth.
  • The Minotaur is one of the few monsters in the series who never encounters Godzilla.
