The sprites used for the Minotaur in Castlevania: Rondo of Blood were also used in Dracula X, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, and Castlevania: Harmony of Despair.

Castlevania: Rondo of BloodEdit

The Minotaur is the standard boss of Stage 3 and Stage 3'. In this game he has quite a few attacks, including two axe attacks (one high, one low), a fire attack, an attack where he uses floor panels against Richter, and a charging attack. The player can move under him when he uses his jumping axe attack, and do a backflip over the Minotaur when he uses his charging attack. Once the Minotaur is defeated, the Minotaur will make a final strike by charging at the player in a last ditch uppercut attack, once after that, It will explode and fall down into pieces. Defeating of the Minotaur moves the player to Stage 4.

Castlevania: Symphony of the NightEdit

The Minotaur is a large beast summoned by Richter Belmont in the Colosseum, he comes teamed with a Werewolf, impaling and slashing with his great axe at the player dealing a lot of damage if not careful, eventually the Minotaur will ram from one corner of the room to another, just like he does in Dracula X Chronicles.

In the Reverse Castle, the Minotaur appears again in the Colosseum as a regular enemy, using the same battle tactics and accompanied by Werewolves and other Minotaurs which can be even more difficult to deal with than before.

If you attack him with a not too slow sword repeatedly he'll be locked on the attack until it is destroyed. Also, it is considered a "were-bull", so the were-bane is extra effective against him.
