Minotaur is a playable character in LEGO Worlds, based on the Minotaur character from LEGO.com.
The Minotaur is made totally up out of brown pieces, except the horns, which are white, and the piece which connects the two legs and the body together, which is dark blue, to match in with the printing of his skirt. His Greek-styled skirt is printed on the belt and both legs, as tattered dark blue pleating. They have a white and gold patterned strip running across them. He has an exclusive bull headpiece with two sockets for the bent horns to be placed in, with printed orange eyes. His body is printed with a muscled torso and fur on the sides, and his feet are printed with hooves.
The Minotaur will stand hunched over, then periodically paw the ground with one foot or moo loudly, then look around as though startled by its own moo.
In Greek mythology, the Minotaur was a creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man. The Minotaur dwelt at the center of the Labyrinth, which was an elaborate maze-like construction designed by the architect Daedalus and his son Icarus, on the command of King Minos of Crete. The Minotaur was eventually killed by the Athenian hero Theseus.
“Wait, was it left at the next passage, or right?”
Half Minifigure and half bull, the legendary Minotaur is said to make his home deep within a great, maze-like labyrinth that only the most brave or foolish of heroes dares to enter. And while that much is true, the rumor that the ferocious beast guards a fabulous treasure is not…in fact, he’s only in there because he can’t find his way out!
The thing is that the Minotaur is just terrible at directions. He used to have a map of the place, but he lost it somewhere and ever since, he’s wandered around the labyrinth hoping to run into somebody helpful who can show him where the entrance is. Unfortunately, everyone that he’s met so far either tries to fight him or runs away. Maybe it’s the horns…or the axe…or the cow-breath?
- The Minotaur has a "Charge" ability that is activated by pressing and holding the interact button (E on PC). While charging, the Minotaur will flatten things in its path. Sometimes while charging, the Minotaur will trip and land on its head, horns first.
- The Minotaur is very aggressive and will attack any Character it can, even other Minotaurs.
- The Minotaur does not spawn in any existing Biomes at first. The only way to unlock the Minotaur so that it will spawn in Medieval Dungeons is to complete the Quest:

|Head to the Curious Canyon for this one. You'll need to locate the Heroic Knight - he should be standing next to a large Minotaur Feeding Pit, with a Village Man trapped in the bottom. The Knight asks you to free the man using the Landscape Tool. Once you've done this, he'll thank you and toss you a Wooden Gladiator Sword, then ask for a "Healing Potion" (or something that looks like one). He'll accept a Magic Potion (Red) and give you a Blueprint (if you don't already have it) for the "Castle Kit (Tower Straight)". After this, he wants a way to watch over the area. Build him the Tower from the Blueprint that he just gave you, and he will toss you another reward. Finally, he'll offer you his Battle Sword if you can give him something to sharpen it with. He'll take a Clear Jewel and trade you his Battle Sword (and toss you a Gold Brick, at which point, the Minotaur will now be allowed to spawn in Medieval Dungeons. Go find a Dungeon in the Fantasy Forest, Watchful Wilderness or Whispering Woodland, keep looking through them until you find a room with Minotaurs, defeat one and you can add him to your discoveries!|
