    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!

Cloned or robots? You see, they might actually have DNA split. You showed a video of their DNA splitting and thought of clones. I thought of Gru splitting the DNA molecules of the minions and therefore stretching the amount of the minions by Multiplying the original amount of minions by 45.2173913. (close enough, I did the math.)

But a perfect genetic clone of a minion would just be another minion. When Dolly the sheep was cloned the result was another sheep. If it looks like a minion, talks like a minion, is indestructible like a minion, and farts like a minion, then it's probably because it's a minion

Uh... When i first saw despicable me i love the film by having a VILLAIN for protagonist, it's like, different from a simple character that is good and do good things all the time, it's a bad guy learning to be good (but still don't lose the villain personality), and the minions... I always hated them

The moment MatPat said that not all of them are actually minions, I knew immediately that he was going to say that the majority of them are clones. Not a fan of minions, but I guess I can understand their appeal.

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".

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
