Minotaur is a Biomechanical kaiju that first appeared in episode 19 of the 2000 animated kaiju show, Kong: The Animated Series titled Welcome to Ramone's.

Name

The Minoutar's name comes from the eponymous monster from Greek Mythology, as it was based on a statue of the beast.

Design

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

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

Kong: The Animated Series

Welcome to Ramone's

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.

Abilities

Physical Strength

  • Minotaur's physical strength is so great that it can withstand a punch from Kong without even flinching on impact.
