Added DiffLines:

* The Minotaur appears, of course, in ''Literatre/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. Amusingly, this isn't in book four (wherein the characters end up in the actual Labyrinth) but the very first book, possibly because he's one of the creatures in ClassicalMythology [[PopularityPower most people know about/remember]]. Also amusingly, he is both easily dodged (because once he gets up a head of steam he can't stop or turn aside) and easily fooled (because of his lack of intelligence and HotBlooded nature).

* Babe the Blue Ox of Myth/PaulBunyan fame.

* ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsI'' gives us the Taurus Demon, along with the non-bovine but very much minotaur-inspired Capra Demon. They appear as early game bosses and come back much later as DegradedBosses.

* El Odio from ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' is a giant, pink bull that not only terrorizes one character's mind, but also the player, for the entire level.
** And as it turns out, killing him would be unthinkable as [[spoiler: he is, in fact, the character whose mind he is found in]].
* Goht in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' (the one who had to be beating by being out-raced and bashed as a Goron).

* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' had two Decepticon characters in G1 that turned into mechanical bulls: Tantrum, one of the Predacons (who is unusual compared to other examples of this trope in that he's noted to be on the physically weak side) and [[PunnyName Horri-Bull]] who [[InformedSpecies really looks]] more like a [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Terror Dog]] than an actual bovine.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
