Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • The Medusa Minusaur is portrayed by suit actor Yuichi Hachisuka (蜂須賀祐一 Hachisuka Yūichi).

Notes

  • This Minosaur is based on Medusa, a Gorgon from Greek mythology that can turn anyone to stone through her eyes. The sword and the face with open mouth showing curved teeth also implies inspiration from Indonesian things like Keris and Leak. It is the first Minosaur to be based on a female mythological creature.
    • Its design (IE: Its face not showing any eyes) draws some similarities to Dayu UsukawaNaria, and Akyanba (All were also portrayed by Yuichi Hachisuka, her suit actor).
  • Curiously, a Medusa-like monster appeared in Dino Super Charge, another dinosaur-themed series.
    • Unlike the adaptation, his counterpart debuted in a movie before appearing in the series on which Dino Super Charge is based.
  • The Medusa Minosaur's EXP value (304) is a Goroawase pun. It could be read as mi (3) - rei (0) - yo (4);i.e. "to look at", "to see".
  • In the stage shows at Japan, the Medusa Minosaur has a male variant, with black and red sword.
  • The Medusa theme brings to mind of MedusaIcon-crosswiki from Kamen Rider WizardIcon-crosswiki.
