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!

  • Off topic from this video, but I’d love to see an honest, broken down analysis of a fight between Bill Cipher and Thanos. According to research on both of them they are both pretty evenly matched. I personally think Bill would win, but a break from this channel would be so cool!

  • Theory idea: so in Invisible, apparently the Viltrumite DNA is so pure that Mark is almost pure viltrumite. Could this mean that Mark only inherited dominant genes from his father? Would that make Mark share no physical similarities with his mom? If Mark made a baby with another human, would the kid be 50% viltrumite or still pure?

  • Wait but if Gru is so good with cloning dna couldn't he just either make HIMSELF immortal or clone himself? Then he alone could care for the minions until the end of time, therefore UN dooming the world:)

  • Oh MatPat.... You forget that Gru has daughters. When he's gone, you know those three crazy gals will be taking over the family business in a variety of ways. Either they'll continue being eccentric super villains, or they'll take up the work Gru began as an international secret agent. All the while, they'll have the minions to back them up, since.... yanno.... the daughters would be the minions next obvious choice as someone to follow. They might be dumb, but they aren't stupid. They aren't going to wander off when the next in line to command them have been living under the same roof as they have for literal years at that point. Then after the daughters are all gone, there's a good chance they'll have had children of their own that the minions can continue to follow. If anything, Gru and Nefario unwittingly created a work force of service for all future generations of Gru's family.

  • However, it says the Minons seek out the "evilest" thing to follow. Gru isn't isolated- he's actually in a lot of contact with a large portion of the underworld. But the Minons stay with him... Is that because he hasn't died? Or because people are generally a lot nicer in this world?

  • I know this is completely irrelevant to minions but is anyone else confused at what Charlie's mom says in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? She says: "There's a hundred billion people in this world...". It is just as easy if not easier to say: "Seven billion", which is WAYYY more accurate than a hundred billion, even if it's not an exact number. Please consider this for a future episode! It has been bugging me ever since I saw the movie for the first time!
