Minotaur I is one of three minotaur shadow variants that appears in the 6th World of Magatsu Mandala within the Midnight Channel. This white Minotaur version will use physical strikes and Power Charged physical strikes to attack the party. After being defeated, it may drop Platinum Hide. Selling 4 Platinum Hides will unlock the Gigant Fall weapon for Chie Satonaka in the shop.
In Golden, Minotaur I has single- and multi-target light and dark spells. It protects its weakness with Evade Elec. It has the passive skill Counterstrike. It may heal itself or allies with Diarahan.
Minotaur I appears near the end of the game, in the last few floors of the Clock Tower. While it has impressive stats for a regular Shadow, it nulls neither Light nor Dark, and as such can be dispatched effortlessly by most endgame parties. Should the player desire a Bull Horn for crafting purposes, it must be downed using Ice attacks. As the monster is resistant to St Bind, using Panic to prevent it from firing off a Power Charged Rampage is advisable.
Minotaur I appears in Area 4 of the second Theater, Junessic Land. It uses strong Physical strikes to attack the party and may be able to 1-hit or 2-hit KO party members at that part of the game. The Bull Horn it drops is used to unlock the Femur Club for Ryuji Sakamoto, Basalt Axe for Haru Okumura, Downpour Fan for Yukiko Amagi, Power Plate and Hard Board for Kanji Tatsumi, Raging Bull for Naoto Shirogane, Tyranno Claw for Teddie, Poison Kunai for Yosuke Hanamura, Great Sword for the P4 hero, Nanman Gusoku for Chie Satonaka and the Tigerhide Belt male armor. Its Bull Crystal drop is used to unlock the Rubble Launcher for Morgana, Primal Naginata for the P3P heroine, Demon Pipe for Ryuji, Hell Knuckles for Makoto Niijima, Mega Axe for Haru and the Beast's Scarf cat armor.
