Minotaur I is one of three minotaur shadow variants that appears in the 6th World of Magatsu Mandala within the Midnight Channel. This white Minotaur version will use physical strikes and Power Charged physical strikes to attack the party. After being defeated, it may drop Platinum Hide. Selling 4 Platinum Hides will unlock the Gigant Fall weapon for Chie Satonaka in the shop.
In Golden, Minotaur I has single- and multi-target light and dark spells. It protects its weakness with Evade Elec. It has the passive skill Counterstrike. It may heal itself or allies with Diarahan.
Inexplicably separated from its minotaur brethren, Minotaur I appears near the end of the game, in the last few floors of the Clock Tower. While it has incredibly impressive stats for a regular monster, it nulls neither Light nor Dark, and as such can be dispatched effortlessly by most endgame parties. Should the player desire a Bull Horn for crafting purposes, it must be downed using Ice attacks. As the monster is resistant to St Bind, using Panic to prevent it from firing off a Power Charged Rampage is advisable.
