Manny Taur is the son of the minotaur and a school bully who picks on Jackson Jekyll and the little devil boy. His first big appearance was in "Miss Infearmation" and his second big appearance was in "Abominable Impression".
He is voiced by Audu Paden in English.
Manny is tough and a bully. 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. However he's afraid of his sister Minnie and people who tell her his recent misbehavings so he is not a hardcore bully. He does not like being called a "bull". 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.
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.
In Greek mythology, the Minotaur is a creature with the head of a bull on the body of a man or, as described by Roman poet Ovid, "part man and part bull". "Minotaur" translates to "bull of Minos", Minos being the name of the king of Crete and the husband of the Minotaur's mother. The Minotaur dwelt at the center of the Cretan Labyrinth, which was an elaborate maze-like construction designed by the architect Daedalus and his son Icarus, on the command of King Minos. The Minotaur was eventually killed by the Athenian hero Theseus.
Manny is the son of the Minotaur. He has a sister named Minnie whom he fears, but otherwise nothing is known.
In "The Need for Speed" Manny is seen walking with Simon Clops indicating a possible friendship.
Manny Taur has not been revealed to like or date anyone as of yet, 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.
