Minimus started out, in every sense, as a worrywart and coward and lacked confidence. He also has a few self-esteem issues. On countless occasions, he doubted his capabilities. He tried convincing Sofia to choose another horse as her racing partner, but while Minimus doubts himself, the true talent within him overpowers the doubt.
While being Sofia's partner, Minimus steadily grew bolder and gained confidence in himself. However, like Sofia, he is still very withdrawn and avoids confrontation, but when it came to Hugo quitting on the Derby Team just hours before the championship race in "The Flying Crown", Minimus becomes enraged and wishes to speak human, so he would give him a talking-to.
Minimus is very loyal to Sofia. In fact, he loves her as much as Clover does. He's willing to do anything to make her happy. From saving Clover to trying out new Derby Team plays.
Minimus has grown into a more confident horse after performing several brave deeds, such as helping his brother Mazzimo find Wildwing Valley and accompanying Sofia on her duties as Storykeeper. He even grew confident enough to stand up to his mother and do stunt flying.
