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!

    My only problem is how do we know the mutated minions WERENT apart of the original 230? The only minions we know for a fact apart of the original 230 is Bob , Chris, Dave, Eric ,Henry ,Kevin ,Norbert, Stuart, Tom and Tony, that leaves 220 unnamed, those of which could had been infected Its been awhile since I watched the second movie but I believe one of the name 10 originals was infected, I think it was Bob or Stuart

    So they ARE all minions, it's just some of them are clones. Therefore identical to the original minions, just there's more of them. (Not counting any possible human ones, I guess)
