    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!

I honestly thought this was going to be another trash 'theory' videos that hand wave all the things that contradict the theory. This is like....ridiculously solid, especially considering how silly the source material is.

Love you keep it up. Also, how about a game theory on the end poem. Everyone thinks they have the lore, but I think there is more to it

I'm pretty sure when Gru is gone, the minions will be serving under the three girls. They do seem to have a tight connection in the movies (Though it's been a while since I actually watched these movies).

Imo minions won't really realize that they are powerful enough to be their own masters of their own since for centuries they still are finding the strongest evil villain to serve.

Just a question. In my opinion the szene from 9:57 doesn't really proof, that he favoures some minions, because the original text says: "Didn't I get you already".

Actually gru didn’t kiss that one minion because he already did. Not because he doesn’t like that minion (9:54)

The minions were based off of Jewish children captured by the nazis. They were given large helmets to restrict their breathing and sight. The heavy helmets also stunted their growth, causing them to be short and wearing goggles.

I think it's in the behind the scenes section of the movie but gru actually was the creator of ALL minions using hard boiled egg yokes and in the minions movie they retconned it so that the minions have always existed which makes no sense but hey they needed a loose plot so they can make money off of milking the popularity of the minions just like frozen two milked it and was way worse then the first one

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
