Manny Taur is a 2011-introduced and all-around character. He is the son of the minotaur and a notorious bully, whose favored victims comprise Jackson Jekyll, the devil boy, and zombies. Manny used to be a victim of bullying himself in middle school, but gained height and muscle just before enrolling at Monster High. It wasn't long before he began to inflict on others what had been inflicted on him. Eventually, though, he took note of his error and has since been working on getting out of the cycle, but his old behavior is stubborn. Fortunately, he has collected a number of friends around him who know when to be patient and when to be direct. It's partially thanks to their efforts that he has even managed to start a relationship, if rocky, with his dreamgirl: Iris Clops.

Portrayers

He is voiced by Audu Paden in English.

In the Hebrew version, he is voiced by Guy Roshiniack, who also voices Deuce Gorgon and Rotter.

Character

Personality

Manny is a typical bully, usually picking on weaker monsters or those who annoy him. He was seen picking on Jackson Jekyll in "Miss Infearmation" and was heard to be bullying Howleen Wolf in Abbey's 'School's Out' diary. He has a dislike of zombies, due to them being so slow and does not believe that they should be allowed to play sports such as dodgeskull.

Recently though, Manny has tried to change his ways, and while he's still very gruff toward others, he hasn't bullied anyone for a while, and is often seen hanging out with his friends and playing sports, which he enjoys greatly. In his diary, he revealed that he himself was bullied in middle school, and when he received a growth spurt before joining Monster High, he was all too eager to return the favour on his tormentors, and kept on bullying people just for fun. An encounter with Abbey convinced him to change his ways.

Outside of sports, Manny is a fairly easy going guy, but he flies into a rage whenever he sees the colour red, and feels compelled to charge at it. He may act tuff and scare everyone he sees but the truth is that Manny is a very troubled person. Because of his self conciousnous of being the only minotaur in his family that can't handle mazes Field of Screams and because of his clumsy ways, he chooses to hide behind his own ego and not let people see his soft side. He is also quite gross and indecent, violent and rude.

Appearance

Being the son of the minotaur, Manny is half-bull, half-man in his appearance. Manny also has a nose ring and wears red shirt with a labyrinth printed on it, and gray jeans. He has sandy blonde hair and is quite muscular. He also has tanned fur.

Relationships

Family

Manny is the son of the Minotaur. He has a sister named Minnie whom he fears knowing of his bullying, but whether that is because he's afraid of her or for her is unclear.

Friends

Manny didn't have any friends during his days as a bully, but nowadays he considers Heath Burns to be his best friend. He has also been seen hanging out with Clawd Wolf in many of the webisodes and movies. He also has his teammate Deuce Gorgon as his best friend since they're in sporting events.

In "The Need for Speed" Manny is seen walking with Simon Clops indicating a possible friendship.

Romance

Manny Taur has apparently dated a few times before. He was seen walking outside Monster High arm-in-arm with a purple animal girl, both looking happily at each other, though at Draculara's Sweet 1600 party, he was later shot with one of C.A. Cupid's love arrows and fell in love with Slo Mo in "Why Do Ghouls Fall in Love?". However this love was only temporary and only lasted until Frankie smashed the bow. In 'Hiss-toria", he is seen handing flowers to Meowlody.

Recently, he has started dating Iris Clops. While he cares a lot about her, his tendency to say the wrong thing and lack of experience with girls sometimes results in misunderstandings between them. While his friends try hard to help, their relationship is a little ruff, with many disagreements and the two seem to break up a lot. Their relationship seems to be popular for that reason. When Spectra asks Operetta for a scoop, she tells her Manny and Iris broke up, and then went back again, to which Spectra replies that she wants fresh news, not old ones, implying it's a recurrent issue. Haunted Apart from this the two love each other and share traits that bring them together and, even though they're natural opposites, they are caring of each other. Manny is very protective of her.

Timeline

Notes

  • Although Manny wears a red shirt, he says that he hates the color red. This is based on the urban myth that bulls charge at the color red.
