Mino Magnus, known as Mino Magnaxe (ミノ・マグナクス Mino Magunakusu) in Japan, is one of the Einherjar Eight Warriors in Mega Man Zero 4, based on the Minotaur.

Mino tends to be very slow in forming his phrases, and shows his disapproval when Zero interrupts by trying to destroy him. He guards the Magnetic Zone which was spreading a very high amount of noise to disrupt Area Zero's environmental control system.

He uses an axe in battle, but he doesn't make use of it much. His magnetic abilities increase if the weather is in his favor.

He once worked as part of Mass Driver, a mass transportation unit. He seized the opportunity to join Weil's ranks at the promise of limitless energy. He can generate high amounts of power, but expends an equivalent amount of energy to do so. He is a slow talker, and being interrupted during conversations is one of his pet peeves.

Different designs for Mino Magnus were proposed, with different horns or with hands that seem to be combined with his axe.

Zero's EX Skill: Tractor Shot


  • Goes into the middle of the screen and separates his body into five parts, attacking Zero with a rather complex pattern of movements. Dodging this attack looks difficult, but the pattern is always the same, making this a good time to attack Magnus's vulnerable torso.
  • Tries to suck Zero in with a magnet ball formed on his spiked shoulder. There are two versions of them: pink (North) and blue (South). The pink one is stronger than the blue one.
  • Dashes towards Zero, grabs him and gives him a magnetic charge, then hurls him into a wall with an identical charge from his shoulder. The magnetic charge lasts for a long time and attracts bits of garbage to Zero while he's touching the ground, greatly hindering his movements until shaken off.
  • EX Skill: Creates a green (magnetic) ball, which is followed by one of two attacks:
    • The ball hovers above Zero and pulls damaging garbage out of the ground beneath it, eventually forming a large cube that drops to the ground. Magnus leaps and chops this cube in half, sending blocks of debris across the floor and into the walls where they shatter into more debris.
    • The ball is released to the side of the arena opposite Magnus and returns to him while quickly gathering garbage. Magnus swings at this block of trash like a baseball, sending two blocks of garbage through the air and shattering on impact into showers of debris.
