Papyrus: The Animated Series Wikia

King Minos is a minor character who makes his appearance in the ninth episode of the series. He is the king of the Cretan kingdom, and is the father of Melos and Ariadne. His wife is never mentioned nor referred to; she may have died, or just left.


Minos is a fair and just ruler, and has zero tolerance for nonsense. He cares very much for his children. When Ariadne risked her life to save Papyrus, he immediately sets out to find them both and bring them to safety.

After having his kingdom saved, thanks to Papyrus, he is very pleased and offers his seal to Papyrus to deliver to Pharaoh Merenre as a symbol of their alliance.


  • He is based on King Minos, son of Zeus, in Greek mythology.
