The Minotaur is a large humanoid bull who enjoyed causing mayhem and destruction in the city of Heraklion, the capital of Crete. When Crete's king Minos finally captured him he requested of Daedalus and Icarus to build a large maze to keep the Minotaur imprisoned. However the insane king only wanted to use the maze for entertainment by throwing innocent people into the maze so they could be hunted by the Minotaur.

Trivia[]

  • MinotaurBaby

    The Minotaur as an infant

    In the original myth the Minotaur was the stepson of King Minos but in the animated series there is no mention of the two being related.
  • In the film, the Minotaur had red eyes and lacked clothing and facial hair and in the episode Hercules and the Parents Weekend he had purple skin as an infant (although this may be due to a lack of fur).
  • In the episode Hercules and the Bacchanal, it is implied that there may be more than one Minotaur.



Gorgon[]

Main article: Medusa (Hercules)

An image of a Gorgon resembling the one from the film is seen in the episode Hercules and the Parents Weekend while Echidna is singing about her children. Whether Echidna is the mother of all Gorgons or just this one is unknown. In the film, Hercules fights a gorgon in the Zero to Hero sequence, and Medusa appears in the animated series as a friend of Hercules, though Hades tries to use Medusa to turn the hero-in-training to stone.
