The Minotaur and its lair in The Gallows is an example of the developers leaving as few empty rooms as possible, so when a boss is killed, something else takes its place. Sometimes the new entity is a demi-boss.
First boss of the game, in The Gallows.
The Gallows Edit
- Cutscene upon entering
- The Minotaur. The Minotaur does around 40 damage per hit, and can hit Ashley on the ledge, so jump down immediately.
Obligatory battle: Congratulations! screen and Stat Reel
- Minotaur. Only spawns once. Arms, normal attacks. Head: Giga Rush. Armed with a BRONZE "Hand of Light" Heavy Mace which never drops, but does drop from its much later replacement.
Drops Chamomile Sigil, Grimoire Guerir, and Grimoire Debile 255/255 chance
- Chest: WOOD Pelta Shield, Three Vera Bulb, Fifteen Yggdrasil's Tears. Removed by Trigger 1
- Cutscene upon exiting
- Sydney satirizes Ashley's killing ability, claiming he is a puppet with no soul. The picnic reappears, and now Ashley is there, with his wife and son. Bandits attack, and kill his family. Sydney accuses Ashley of failing, of letting them die. "You killed them!" Hardin enters, with Merlose bound as his prisoner. "The City of Shade will forgive your sins, my son, and call forth a power...a power that lies within you even now. This is my game. I run, you give chase. I am the hart, and you the hunter." They all leave, and Ashley falls to his knees as power fills him. <Ashley has recovered Battle Abilities from his suppressed memory>
Minotaur Zombie Edit
Because it takes so long for the new occupant to appear, it is considerably tougher than the original.
Minotaur Zombie appears later, drops HAGANE "Hand of Light" Heavy Mace at 13/255 chance
