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. A zombie is the body of a dead person given the semblance of life, but mute and under the control of another through a supernatural practice in the Voodoo religion. The word comes from the name of a West African snak god, nzambi which is Kimbundu for "god". It may also derive from the Spanish word sombra meaning "shade, ghost" through Louisiana creole.
    In Final Fantasy Origins, this enemy was called Necrotaur. Necro is a prefix pertaining to the dead, and comes from the Greek word nekrós meaning "dead person, corpse". Taur comes from tauros which means "bull" in Greek.
    In the original NES release, this enemy was called ZomBull, a compound of Zombie and Bull. A bull is a male bovine animal. The word comes from the Old Norse word boli.
