** Two off-shoots of the Tauren have been introduced in expansions. The bison-styled Taunka of Northrend have a bleaker outlook than the Tauren, their harsh homeland forcing them to fight for survival. The yak-styled Yaungol of Pandaria are even worse, having developed a ProudWarriorRaceGuy mentality to help them survive on the steppes. The Taunka joined the Horde, while the Yaungol are enemies of all races.

The Taunka joined the Horde, while the Yaungol are enemies of all races. In addition, the Highmountain tribe, while still strictly Tauren and not an offshoot, is visually distinct from the rest of the species for the moose-like antlers bestowed upon them by the demigod Cenarius.

* ''FanFic/ThePalaververse'': Minotaurs are one of the subraces of cattle alongside shorthorns, longhorns, bison and yaks. They are thought to have first arisen due to the chaotic magic that filled the word after the Fall of Antlertis, which would explain their great degree of physical divergence from other cattle. They don't have any magic active or latent, unlike almost every other sapient species, but their hands and bipedalism (and more specifically the resulting advantages in tool usage) have historically more than made up for this.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The series' backstory includes Morihaus, an [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Aedric demi-god]] who aided the [[SlaveRevolt Alessian Revolt]] against their [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleid]] masters. Morihaus took the form of a massive "winged man-bull" with a favored fighting style of [[HornAttack goring enemies with his horns]]. Morihaus fell in love with Alessia, the human "slave queen", and remained with her for the rest of her life. [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse What happened to Morihaus after her death is unknown]].
** Minotaurs, a massive race of half-man/half-bulls, are are believed to descend from the union between Alessia and Morihaus. They are believed to be a sapient [[PettingZooPeople beast race]], but are treated as little better than monsters by most other denizens of Tamriel. Alessia's son, Belharza, was said to be the first Minotaur, and became the second Emperor of the Alessian Empire following her death.

* The Minotaur himself is actually a summonable Servant in ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' as a [[PowerBornOfMadness Berserker-class]] Servant, with his Noble Phantasm being [[TheMaze the labyrinth he was trapped in most of his life]]. In a twist, however, he's mostly referred to by the protagonist and his closest friends by his real name Asterios (lightning) and he's actually a pretty nice and loyal guy by Berserker standards. Also, while he does have the horns, his face is actually humanoid though usually covered by a metal mask in the shape of a bull.

* Minotaurs in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' are usually portrayed as {{Proud Warrior Race Guy}}s. [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=201401 Hurloon Minotaur]] was an iconic creature in the early history of the game, but it wasn't actually a very good card. Minotaurs also feature prominently in the Myth/ClassicalMythology-inspired plane of Theros, where they're vicious and barely sapient monsters who worship Mogis, the God of Slaughter (who himself takes the shape of a colossal minotaurs) and in the Myth/EgyptianMythology-inspired Amonkhet, where they have ovine upper bodies instead, with the overall effect being reminiscent of the ram-headed Egyptian god Khnum.
