* 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.

** Their spiritual heirs, the Baal-Hadad (alternatively, "Gudthabak"), appear in ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheForsaken'' and are much less nice.

The second, the "Wild Minotaur" is a wild bull awakened to an incredibly powerful form that can rise up on its hind legs, and grab things with its triparte front hooves.

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 an herbivore's head. [[note]]The original Minotaur was a man-eater.[[/note]]

** The Beasts of Chaos utilize minotaurs in their ranks as well, as well as their heavily mutated variants, the gigantic Ghorgons with an extra pair of arms ending in bone blades and the one-eyed Cygors whose mere presence disrupts and prevents magic casting.

** The Beasts of Chaos utilize minotaurs in their ranks as well, as well as their heavily mutated variants, the gigantic Ghorgons with an extra pair of arms ending in bone blades and the one-eyed Cygors whose mere presence disrupts and prevents magic casting. Regular minotaurs are powerful, dangerous monsters given to berserker rages at the mere smell of blood, and are often used by the powers of Chaos and their servants as guards for shrines, tombs and other such sites.
