Minotaur (Kong: The Animated Series)
Name[edit | edit source]
The Minoutar's name comes from the eponymous monster from Greek Mythology, as it was based on a statue of the beast.
Design[edit | edit source]
The Minotaur takes design elements from both its namesake, and the Greek Centaur, as it has a quadrupedal stance, something the Greek Minotaur was only ever depicted as having in artworks from later civilizations. It sports two large bull horns, a muscular humanoid torso with two metal armbands, and flat, bull-like face with two yellow, humanoid eyes.
Origins[edit | edit source]
On receiving a statue of the mythical Minotaur for his museum, Ramone De La Porta is inspired to create his own Minotaur using the technology of the Cyber-Link Computer. Despite the Cyber-Link's ability to combine DNA, and De La Porta's proclamation that the Minotaur is biomechanical in nature, he appears to remotely control it like a robot, and it emits gas upon its death, and its eyes go blank, which could indicate that it is a robot.
History[edit | edit source]
Minotaur was kept in the tunnels beneath Ramone De La Porta's museum to be used in conjunction with the Primal Stones as a trap for Kong and Jason Jenkins. Minotaur was used to fight Kong off, and was nearly successful, but one of his allies hacked the security system, which allowed Kong to gain the upper hand. Minotaur was later sent back through the labyrinth after De La Porta had taken control of the tunnels again and rearranged them for Minotaur to attack them. Minotaur attempted to break into the room that housed his adversaries with a stick, but it broke on contact with the wall. Minotaur then managed to use an elevator to a higher floor where it attacked Kong again before being defeated and releasing a cloud of red gas and his eyes going blank.
