* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Putting Your Hoof Down" introduces minotaurs to the mythology of Equestria, in the form of a motivational speaker named Iron Will. Left unexplained is how he's a minotaur instead of a bipedal bull [[FridgeLogic in a world with cows but no humans]].

** But ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVII'' had a subversion. Fernando Bullforth may be a bull, but he's also a shy gentleman who runs a store in Falderal specializing in exquisite and delicate china. Yes, a bull in a china shop. The writers loved their puns.

* In ''VideoGame/GemsOfWar'', the Wild Plains region is home to minotaurs (specifically the Tauros and Soothsayer troops). They live next door to the land of the centaurs, and across a strait from the land of the cat-people, so that part of the world seems to belong to animal-inspired creatures.

For some reason they tend to [[AnAxeToGrind wield axes]], [[note]]The axe in question is the labrys, an ancient weapon associated with the island of Crete, the legendary home of the minotaur,[[/note]] and no self-respecting labyrinth level is complete without one of these as a BossBattle. Mostly carnivorous and [[ImAHumanitarian man-eating]], despite the FridgeLogic this raises for something with a herbivore's head. [[note]]The original Minotaur was a man-eater.[[/note]]

* In A. Lee Martinez's ''Helen & Troy's Epic Road Quest'', Helen was born with minotaurism: an hereditary condition that runs in her mother's otherwise-human family. Five thousand years ago she'd likely have died fighting heroes in an arena; instead, she has to muddle through suburban life with horns, hooves, and an embarrassing propensity to shed brown-and-white fur.

* Minotaurs appear as mooks in ''VideoGame/WillRock''. They throw axes at you and can split up into two smalle Blood Minotaurs if killed with anything but the Sniper Crossbow, the Acid Gun, Medusa Gun or Atomic Gun.

* [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-432 SCP-432 ("Cabinet Maze")]]. It's strongly implied that the labyrinth inside SCP-432 and the monster SCP-432-1 that haunts it are the Labyrinth of Knossos and the {{Minotaur}} of Myth/GreekMythology. In the Discussion for SCP-432, its creator admits this to be the case.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasy8'' has Sacred and Minotaur, a pair of brothers who start out as bosses, and then become the Brothers Guardian Force, working on your side.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasy8'' has Sacred and Minotaur, a pair of brothers who start out as bosses, and then become the Brothers Guardian Force, working on your side. They are fought inside a tomb that has practically identical corridors, and a map that costs a bit of money early on in the game, making it easy to get lost.

Talking bulls or bull-men, especially those who stand on two feet (usually hooves, though not always). They tend to take strength-based characteristics, often being either a MightyGlacier or a LightningBruiser, and rarely a FragileSpeedster.
