What IS a Minion? That was the question I started with when working on this theory. I wanted to REALLY understand these little guys, so I started searching the movies for information. Well Theorists, I found more that I expected buried in the Minions and Despicable Me movies. A LOT more. So much that I can definitely say that the Minions in the movies are NOT Minions. You'll have to watch to find out WHY!

Minions are, in fact, made of thousands of mosquitos. This is the only way that they could have assisted the villain of the 2014 Ebola outbreak (mosquitos).

Well twins come frome the same cells they're essentially clones of each other. Yet we never refer to one of them as not being human. Same with the minions i guess you can say that they are not original minion but that doesnt change the fact that they are the same

The definition of the word “minion” is “a follower of a powerful person, especially a servile or unimportant one” not “little yellow pills that speak gibberish” so when the movies call them “minions” they are only referring to them as what they do (go around and find different evil masters to follow) not as what they are, so, even if they are just artificial recreations of the originals, they are still defined as minions.

“The minions in minions aren’t actually minions” well, you said that in “minions” the minions haven’t been cloned yet. So the minions in minions are minions, it’s just that most minions in despicable me aren’t minions.

Gru was always my favorite villian. He's cool and a good father.
V יום לפני
The real problem and what angered me the most is that in the first movie there are blueprints on the wall. It proves that Gru **engineered** the minions and they never evolved since the beginning of time like the movie says. It was just a cash grab and they threw out continuity and good storytelling to be able to make another movie.

Mat, you said that Gru was not going to be around for ever and that the minions where inevitably going to move on to a new master. What if that wasn't the case, as you said yourself that Gru (or at least someone he knew) would have vast knowledge in genetic science to be able to duplicate/clone the original minions. what if with his knowledge he was able to tap into the genetics that was able to make minions "Immortal" and has been able to infuse himself with that ability, or has this "elixir" tucked away as a just in case, afraid to use it at this time as he hasn't been able to test his "Theory" out... Or in a dark way he has been able to test it and that some minions are indeed humans turned into minions while he experimented on them trying to create an immortality elixir
