The Minotaur (ミノタウロス Minotaurosu) is Jiro's shadow in the Blue Dragon universe. 

Appearance[]

Blue Dragon[]

Minotaur is a slim, dark blue bull humanoid. They have large black horns on their head, a black nose and red eyes. They are significantly slimmer than other shadows like Blue Dragon and Saber Tiger. They have gold bands around their wrists.

Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow[]

The Minotaur in Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow is significantly different to Jiro's Minotaur. It appears more like a bull than a minotaur since it doesn't have the body of a man. Nevertheless, it resembles a bull with a humped back and has the same black horns and nose as Jiro's Minotaur. Its arms are hoofed and has gold bands around them. It also has gold covers over its horns.

Anime[]

Minotaur in the anime is very similar to the shadows original game appearance. The only changes are that he is a bit more muscular and has an overall green colour.

Biography[]

Blue Dragon[]

In the original game, Minotaur is a user of white magic. He can heal his allies and cure them of status effects. These same healing abilities appeared in Blue Dragon Plus.

Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow[]

In Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow, Minotaur appears slightly different being more bull-like. This Minotaur shadow may be a different being entirely to Jiro's Minotaur.

Anime[]

Minotaur is one of the wiser shadows, knowing when Jiro has reached his limit. He always chides Jiro for using more energy than required (even though he fails doing so), but always takes an opponent seriously. He even expresses a calm demeanor when fighting a new opponent. However he is not shown as much in the anime during the second season as Jiro is relying more on his warrior skills and his swordsmanship.

In the English dub, he is cheerful and carefree except his wisecracks tend to annoy Jiro at times. Minotaur's quintessential power lies in hand-to-hand combat where he stays relentless and never quits, no matter how hard the battle.
