The Mighty Minotaur is a Minotaur monster created by Finster who serves as the primary antagonist of the episode "Teamwork".

History

Mighty Minotaur was created by Finster. Rita sent the Mighty Minotaur to Earth to not let Trini and Kimberly neutralize a garbage dump. He fought with Jason, Zack, and Billy and was winning, while Trini and Kimberly were preoccupied fighting the Putties and Goldar at the waste dump. Then Rita enlarged the monster after which the Rangers regroup and call on their Zords. The Minotaur was more powerful than the Zords and, a brief confrontation in Megazord Tank Mode, Zordon determined the monster was too much for the Rangers's Zords. Zordon gives the Rangers their Power Weapons to battle the monster. When confronted by the Minotaur again, they destroy his weapons and then they bring their weapons together to form the Power Blaster and destroy the monster. Teamwork

Personality

Minotaur was a brutal, sinister, wild, savage, arrogant, stubborn, destructive and menacing monster. Like with most monsters, the Minotaur was very unintelligent, speaking only in roars.

Powers And Abilities

Although Mighty Minotaur is one of the very early monsters to appear in the series (being the third monster as a whole), he is shown to be more powerful than the previous two monsters fought by the Rangers before hand.

  • Strength: The Mighty Minotaur was able to overpower Jason, Billy and Zack, the Rangers in battle and single blows from his club were able to take down all three Rangers. A double kick to his shield from Billy and Zack had no effect on him and he was able to easily deflect them. Single blows from his club were able to take down all three Rangers. Leaping up and stabbing the Tyrannosaurs with his horns was powerful enough to knock it down.
  • Durability: The Mighty Minotaur shrugged off multiple blasts to his chest from the Triceratops Dinozord and Sabertooth Tiger Dinozord. Even being blasted by the Dino Megazord in Tank Mode had absolutely no effect. Mighty Minotaur posses incredibly thick skin that can with stand powerful, blows from the Dino Zords and not get scratch. A couple of blasts to his chest from the Triceratops Dinozord had little effect and even less happened when the Sabretooth Tiger Dinozord blasted him. Being slashed across his chest did absolutely nothing except make him drop his club from the impact. Getting blasted by the Mastadon's ice breath had no effect whilst being slammed to the ground by the Triceratop's horn chains had no effect at all. Even being blasted by the powerful Dino Megazord in Tank Mode had absolutely no effect.
  • Hand-To-Hand Combat: In addition to his raw strength, Mighty Minotaur is also a skilled fighter, being able to take on both Jason, Billy and Zack, the Rangers with ease.
  • Extraordinary Leaper: The Mighty Minotaur can leap at incredible distance.
  • Fire Breath: The Mighty Minotaur can spew out strong flames from his mouth.
  • Horn Lighting Beam: The Mighty Minotaur can fire red and blue colored lighting beams from his horns. This was able to cause large explosions behind the Sabertooth Tiger Dinozord and badly shake up Tank Mode.

Arsenal

  • Spiked Club: The Mighty Minotaur uses a spike club for combat.
  • Horn Shield: The Mighty Minotaur also uses a shield to block his enemies's attacks such as a powerful double kick from Billy and Zack.
    • Reflection: The Mighty Minotaur can reflect his enemies's energy based attacks with his shield. This was shown when he blocked blasts from the three male Rangers's Blade Blasters and knocked them back, despite the attack having disassembled Bones in the previous episode.
