Battle Edit

Minotaur only uses physical attacks. He absorbs the Holy element. Once Minotaur has lost all his HP, he will try to cast Holy as a final attack, but will fail since he does not have any MP. He can still perform Holy at the end of the battle, if the player gives him an Ether.

Strategy Edit

Minotaur is a fight best suited to the party's hardest hitting physical characters. The party should not have the Excalibur or Holy Lance equipped. The easiest strategy is to have either Ninjas or Monks who know the Guard skill in a party. The Ninjas can cast Image so Minotaur cannot hit them, and the party can just throw items for high damage. The Monks can guard repeatedly to reduce all physical damage to zero, and since Minotaur uses only physical attacks, he will be unable to do harm letting the Monk's automatic counterattacks finish him off.

This battle can be simply taken on with a character who has the Blood Sword equipped and the Rapid Fire command. Gil Toss also works well.

If the player feels unsure of the party's defensive capacity, a party member with the Healing Staff equipped may be brought, since the Healing Staff restores HP without using magic.

Etymology Edit

The Minotaur was a creature from Greek mythology with the head of a bull and the body of a man. He is descended from the union of the Queen of Crete and a white bull. He roamed the Labyrinth, where he hunted and killed a tribute of young men and women until he was slain by Theseus.
