How to Beat the Minotaur Boss in "God of War"


By the time you've reached Pandora's Temple in "God of War," you've likely grown proficient at slaying minotaurs. However, that's when the game decides to throw a curveball at you in the form of an armored minotaur that is many times larger than you. To defeat this boss, found in the "Challenge of Hades" section of the temple, you must first remove his metal armor and then find a way to deal the killing blow. Knowing not only the best times to attack but how to dodge his attacks is the key to victory.

  • Return to the main platform at the south of the hall as soon as you encounter the boss. The minotaur will follow you to the platform and will place both of his hands on the platform to attack. As he slams his hands onto the platform, lava will spew forth from the floor. Jump early to avoid this attack and use this opportunity to employ various attack combinations to deal damage to the foe.

  • Use the right analog stick to evade most of the minotaur's attacks. When he attacks with his right hand, it will be a grab move that can be avoided by double jumping to the left of the platform.

  • Continue attacking the minotaur until you deplete a section of his health bar, located in the upper right corner of the screen. Once a section is fully depleted, the minotaur will retreat to the back of the hallway and a large circle will appear over his head.

  • Press the "Circle" button while standing next to the minotaur and use the left analog stick to mimic the actions that appear on screen. Completing this mini-game successfully will stun the boss.

  • Return to the platform and pull the switch located on the far left side. This will trigger the cannon to fire a wooden spear at the boss, causing a section of his metal armor to weaken. Repeat this until you completely destroy his armor.

  • Continue attacking the minotaur until his health bar is completely depleted. Once this occurs, he will retreat to the other side of the hallway. Use this opportunity to pull the same lever on the left side of the platform to deal the final blow.

Tips & Warnings

  • Attack the Minotaur as often as possible to absorb orbs that will replenish your health and magic meters.
  • The Poseidon's Rage magic attack can deal a large amount of damage to the minotaur in a short time.
