Minotaur is a type of monster in ADOM. They are early-to-mid game opponents that can smash doors, but have no other special powers. A minotaur named Spardakius is one of the possible 20th opponents in the Arena. Ironically, none at all are found in the Minotaur Maze; only higher ranking minotaurs are found here.

Monster memory[]

Once thought to be a legend, these muscular humanoids with a bull's head are now frighteningly real. At home in the twisting underground labyrinths, these cursed beings search for unwelcome visitors, who are given a very violent greeting. With those horns that seem sharp enough to pierce plate mail, you hope it doesn't see the red blood on your weapon.
