Minotaur is a minotaur monster created by Finster. It manages to cause mass havoc against Jason, Zack, and Billy while Trini and Kimberly are preoccupied fighting the putties at the waste dump. After the Minotaur grows, the Rangers regroup and call on their zords, but after a brief confrontation in Megazord Tank Mode, Zordon determines the monster is too much for the Rangers' zords. Zordon gives the Rangers their Power Weapons to battle the monster. When confronted by the Minotaur again, they bring their weapons together to form the Power Blaster and defeat the monster, and Minotaur vows to return one day.
Minotaur would later appear on Eltar, fighting against Zordon's warriors there. He fights well against Alpha 5, who is fitted with cybernetic strength-enhancing armor plating, but is soon defeated by him after he gains the upper hand. He is turned good by Zordon's energy wave, and like with Puppetman before him, he vows a rematch against the princely robot to test his skills. He then joins several monsters in traveling to Earth where he hones his martial arts skills in several rough-and-tumble US neighborhoods.
Powers and abilities
Minotaur possessed incredible strength, so strong that he could knock human opponents several feet away with a single punch or kick. His two-legged lower torso gave him the speed of a bull, allowing him to travel vast distances with ease and possibly unleash powerful charge attacks. He possesses a razor-sharp tail that fires energy blasts from its tip. Perhaps Minotaur's most notorious ability is his absolute immunity to most melee attacks.
Minotaur is a Minotaurian, meaning that he has the body of a bull and the torso of a man. He also has a pair of capricorn-like horns and a long, metallic rat-like tail he can use as both an energy channeling point and a limb. He is 6 feet tall.
