NAME ORIGIN
    The Minotaur is a creature of Greek mythology. It was the half-man, half-bull offspring of the queen of Crete, Pasiphaë, who was tricked by the god of the sea, Poseidon, into falling in love with the Cretan Bull. The Minotaur grew ferocious and was then confined within the gigantic Labyrinth. The hero Theseus was the one who finally killed the beast. The name Minotaur means "Bull of Minos" in Greek. Minos was the wife of Pasiphaë.
    In the original NES release, this enemy was called Bull. A bull is a male bovine animal. The word comes from the Old Norse word boli.
