"These creatures have the body of a man and the head of a bull, and are cruel man-eaters. They are not particularly intelligent, but can track a man by scent alone. they are very strong and slightly resistant to magic."
―Official Arena Player's Guide.[UL 1]

Minotaurs are creatures encountered in The Elder Scrolls: Arena.


Minotaurs are creatures with a human body and the head of a bull. In Arena, these creatures have a strong yellow body with a short brown garment.

As man-eaters, Minotaurs are normally found in dungeons and will assault any human who enters their lair. They use a cleaver to attack their victims, possibly a reference to their nature of feeding on humans.

Minotaurs have a strong and tall appearance, however they are weaker than Spiders and Ghouls. During their first encounter, Minotaurs may be a challenging opponent if the Eternal Champion is low level. However, after reaching medium levels, Minotaurs will be no match for them. Besides their natural strength, Minotaurs have some resistance to magic.

Minotaurs are first seen in the dungeon of Stonekeep, roaming the inner rooms. They are between Spiders and Skeletons in terms of strength.
