It is said that goddess Sandawa had fought and kept this creature in Encantadia in order to prevent the chaos.
Upon awakening from a volcano, the Minokawa attacked and incinerated two Hathor soldiers. Pirena appears and fights it personally. The Minokawa fled from the Fire Gem, and conjured a Sky Portal to travel to the human world.
The Minokawa also incinerated one of the three Tagubas encountered in the forest.
The Minokawa was released when Daragit used the Book of Balasik.
Almiro and his group, along with Gabriel and Greco battled the Minokawa. After their attempt efforts to defeat the Minokawa, Gabriel theorizes about the weakness of Minokawa, the water. Gabriel and Greco managed to swim into the lake so that Minokawa could chase them in the lake, as a plan in order to defeat it. They seemingly managed to defeat the Minokawa, however its flame is restored as it rose up from the lake.
Pirena knows the weakness of a Minokawa: the Ruwido, a powerful weapon that can defeat it, which is guarded by Tres Aves in Mount Latukan.
The Minokawa was finally killed by Anya using the Ruwido (powered up with the Mystic Jewel or Mahiwagang Hiyas), with the assistance of Almiro, Gabriel, Pagaspas, Lawiswis, Malik, Pirena and Lira. When it fell, only its bones and heart remained. Pirena expected that it could revive, so she decides to bring back some of the bones to Encantadia, so that the bones of the Minokawa will not be united in the same place.
- Minokawa's summoning scene from volcano is much similar to the summoning scene of Arde in his dragon form.
- Minokawa's design is much similar to Sandawa's bird form.
- The Ruwido is said to be so powerful that the gods of Encantadia decided to divide the weapon into two and cast it to the human world to prevent any Encantado from reaching it.
