Minotaurs and Minotaur Kings are level 5 creatures of Dungeon town. They are recruited from the Labyrinth.

"Minotaurs and Minotaur Kings live in labyrinths and devour all who enter. These bull-like humanoids are sure of their ability to dominate in battle and have good morale. This self image is well-founded as they are durable and have a very damaging axe attack." RoE manual

Tactics and info[edit]

They are one of the main forces of the Dungeon, aside from the Red and Black Dragons, mainly because of their specialty, high stats, and especially because of their damage that is comparable to a level 6's.

Special ability[edit]

Minotaur's positive morale ability can be affected only with Cursed Ground magical terrain or Spirit of Opression artifact. Their morale cannot be decreased below +1 by the Sorrow spell, Holy Ground magical terrain effect, the morale forfeit for units from different towns or undead in the army, Bone and Ghost Dragon ability, any morale decreasing map objects effects and anti-morale artifacts in Horn of the Abyss.

Heroes with a specialty[edit]

  • Dace Dace the Overlord has minotaurs as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any minotaurs or minotaur kings for each level attained after 5th level and gives them a speed bonus of 1.

Trivia[edit]

In one of the Armageddon's Blade teasers, the Minotaur was shown together with an electricity-shooting Ogre and ranged Goblins. The cause for this was because the teaser was supposed to include the Forge version of these creatures, the Minotaur bearing a jetpack on his back and the Ogre a rocket launcher or bazooka. However, due to fan backlash, they had to change the Forge creatures into "regular" creatures, and so the teaser became somewhat off-topic with ranged Goblins, a Minotaur and an Ogre guarding the so-called Varn 1904 Vault where the Armageddon's Blade was kept.

Their Forge equivalent was gonna be called Jump Soldier and the upgrade Jump Trooper, level 5 troops.
