Minotaurs inhabit Labyrinths (marked with a # on the Travel map). As you explore the labyrinth, the Minotaur will taunt you until you find and kill it.

In Fortress mode, they will attack your fortress once it reaches 50 population, 5000 exported wealth, and 50000 created wealth. They can be quite dangerous, easily overpowering normal dwarves, but a well-equipped military should be able to take care of one. They are susceptible to traps and can easily be restrained via a cage trap and can then be used in a labyrinth of your own.

In Adventure mode a quest may be given to slay a particular Minotaur that may have previously killed other adventurers in the history of the world. Upon entering the labyrinth the butchered corpses of these fallen adventurers can be found throughout the labyrinth
