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!

    Can a clone of a minion really not be a minion? The answer that they are clones precedes clones of what--minions. So the clones are minions

    Well, I think the conclusion is wrong. The clone of a sheep is still a sheep, right? Genetically they are literally identical. So the clone of a minion of course is a minion. An exact copy. (at least if Gru managed to perfect cloning, but given his ability with genetics I'd think so)

    You actually made a mistake in the beginning in the movie life of pets the animals can’t talk they’re just showing you that the animals understand each other but when they show you the humans perspective when max is trying to convince his owner to remove that brown dog she can’t understand him she just hears barking

    In Despicable me 2, there were minions in front of the screen making jelly and playing around with fruit hats. But in the backround, there were 2 minions hitting eachother with hammers. One of them knocks out the other minion and starts panicking. The minion then starts to perform CPR and the minion that was knocked out is back.

    Matpat why keep in check of them when you can launch them into space after all even though its not the most logical solution considering we'ed have to build THOUSANDS of spaceships it would work. Right?

    NGL I like Felonious and never found minions appealing. I wouldn't be here at all if this wasn't MattPat. The only thing primal about them is that I want to put them in a blender feet first so I can watch their reactions.
