A minor piece is a piece that can not perform a checkmate when the only two pieces on its side are itself and a king. These two pieces are the bishop and the knight. Although the pawn also fits this description, they are not considered minor pieces traditionally.

A minor piece and a king alone can still perform a stalemate.
