Maxotaur (マクスタウラー, Makusutaurā?) is a Minotaur-like Bakugan that appears in Bakugan Battle Planet. He is owned by China Riot.
Maxotaur doesn't express emotions and speaks in a low grumbling almost inaudible tone. He charges his opponents like the wild beast that he is. He willingly takes orders from China Riot, as it fits his mentality of "do now, ask questions later," if you even bother with questions at all. Though painfully sharp, his horns are a point of weakness.
Bakugan Battle Planet
Maxotaur appears as China Riot's partner Bakugan. During her brawl with Lia Venegas, and eventually the rest of the Awesome Ones, China uses Maxotaur and the surprise platforms on the field to catch her opponents off guard and limit their accessibility to BakuCores. With the help of her platforms, China and Maxotaur handily defeat Lia, and because of a contract signed by Lia, she has to give Gorthion to China. Maxotaur is later defeated by a combined effort from Dan and Drago, Wynton and Trox, and Lia and Pegatrix. 
The Bakugan Ultra version of Maxotaur has been seen in Pyrus, Ventus, Haos, Aurelus, and Diamond variants.
