—Description of Minotaur from Strange Notebook
A Minotaur (ミノタウルス Minotaurusu ) is a monster that resembles the mixture between a human and a bull. In short films, they are often found in the Luna Nova Academy dungeons while in anime, in various parts of the school as custodian or janitors. In Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time, some wild minotaurs also exist.
The minotaurs have a humanoid body about three meters long, with hooves on their feet, a long tail and a large bull's head with bright orange eyes without pupils and two big horns.
Minotaurs in short films are extremely aggressive and violently attack anyone who comes near them. Ones that featured in anime however, appeared to be more civilized and have more anthropomorphic qualities since they wear Luna Nova custodian uniforms, but still temperamental. The same cannot be said on other members of these creatures that encountered as wild monsters by Akko and co. as they venturing through dungeons accessible via. Sealed Door of Horologium Room with use of Magic Keys. Of course, a plausible explanation of this is mainly due to the difference of lifestyle of these creatures.
Powers and Abilities
The minotaurs have an immense amount of physical strength. They also show incredible stamina, as a minotaur was unaffected when Diana nailed multiple swords into his back.
