Not only in Labyrinths?[edit]

I just had a minotaur as a random invader. Caverns, aquifers, magma sea at my embark site, but no labyrinth. It arrived over land like a goblin raiding party. Is this a bug, or just an intended behavior not on the wiki page?

They live in labyrinths, but in Fortress mode they'll leave their homes in order to attack your fortress just like all other semi-megabeasts. --Quietust 02:47, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Minotaur arrived at fortress with no weapons. Article inaccuracy?[edit]

I checked his her inventory and it showed nothing. Monkeyfetus 23:05, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

AFAIK, the minotaur is supposed to have a weapon. Have you tried opening a bug report? --Dree12 (talk) 00:49, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
Same for me, Minotaur arrived, no weapon in inventory, no weapon dropped when dead. Was also easily dispatched by just a skilled Axedwarf and a competent Speardwarf, with the help of a bunch of wardogs. He killed some of them but not many. --Old Ancient 18:16, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
Same for me. It seems that Minos just don't come with weapons although they'll use whatever comes upon their hands at the moment.
I had a similiar situation, with a minotaur arriving unarmed. She still managed to tear a merchant or two apart with her bare hands though. And amusingly, it proceeded to pick up a glove to use as a weapon, rendering it far less lethal. Speaking of which, should that be mentioned on the article, the minotaur's occasional tendency to pick up wildly inappropriate improvised weapons?-- 19:50, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
