Minotauros (ミノタウロス Minotaurosu) was a Phantom born from within Toriizaka Station detective Amino (網野) when he gave in to despair, ripping his host to pieces from the inside and assuming his identity.
Kamen Rider Wizard
Phoenix and Medusa send him to create a new Phantom using Rinko Daimon. However, while drawing her into an ambush, he is interrupted in his Phantom form by Haruto, who shoots off the end of one of his horns, making his human disguise wear a head bandage when he reappears. Later revealing his identity and intent, he destroys Rinko's locket, her source of continued hope, to ensure her Inner Phantom's birth. However, Minotauros is destroyed by Kamen Rider Wizard's Strike Wizard Rider Kick, after which the Kamen Rider enters Rinko's Underworld to undo the damage.
A version of Minotauros was evidently consumed by the cannibalistic Phantom, Ogre, who channeled his power while fighting Kamen Rider Wizard, using Minotauros' power of creating fireballs to bombard Wizard Flame Dragon and knock him out of his transformation.
