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!

Couldn’t it also be that they might be huge cells (most likely prokaryotes since one clip showed nucleoid dna) replicating themselves by binary fission?🤔

@Keely oh that’s a relief! I was worried that I had unintentionally offended you😂😭😅

@Iduna I'm so sorry! I should have added an indicator that I was making a little joke. I'm not offended at all, but apologize for causing you stress when I intended to make you chuckle a bit.
Iduna Pirms 6 dienām
I’m sorry if you view anything as me being immature. I never intended anything to be a joke. If anything, I have not much humour, so forgive me if I have offended you in any way. It wasn’t my intention
Iduna Pirms 6 dienām
@Keely why would they be a joke to me? Of course they aren’t a joke.
Iduna Pirms 6 dienām
@Keely I’m just a gcse student. Just using my education to suggest a theory. I’m not be as aware of any other concepts of binary fission since I’m only at a gcse level, but that’s what we were taught

Y'ALL: TIME TRAVEL. My kid begged me to share this (she's the real fan, I get sucked in). The more I talked it out the more sense it made. Minions didn't evolve from the past. Gru & Dru's FATHER put them in the past by travelling in time. Papa Hu was more than just a rolling stone. In a plan to clone the most evil person on earth--himself but more indestructible and an army. Like most great discoveries, he first failed, creating twins, Gru and Dru. Though Papa Hu preened over their twisted genius and...durability... and both were proud parents. However, they soon saw the need to separate the boys after realizing what it means when naughty clones think alike: they're competitive and destructive. Before they could walk, they had already destroyed two homes and a Piggly Wiggly. At this rate, the parents realized the twins could destroy the entire planet (solar system?) if they stayed in contact and equally yoked. One twin would need an army of minions, COMPLETELY loyal to one master until death, immortal, and too stupid to ever switch masters. So Papa Hu and Dru moved. Papa Hu secretly developed minions. As he developed more minions, he couldn't make them indestructible unless they were exposed to a vast variety of times and environments. With the help of minions, Papa Gru invented a time machine. Conveniently, minions were test subjects. Each time they returned, he improved the time travel technique and the minion's DNA encoded new survival. This accounts for the slight changes in minions, even the anatomical variants. It was time to take all the minions to the very earliest point in history and leave them. The minions recognized Gru when they saw him as a child. They knew he was one of their creator's son's and this was their ultimate master. Many minion couldn't have successfully returned in the time machine. Papa Hu could have just told the minions to find and pick up their brothers as they live over the centuries. He could have even created some kind of biological homing device so they would be drawn to each other. But that's just a theory.

in the 2nd movie in order to turn the minions back from the purple minion form dr Nifario says to turn them back he mixes the minion formula with the nasty jam to turn them back. this is to say they do make new minions just in a different way. Noy saying that your wrong just wanted to see if you would use it and kinda was dissapointed.

I have a question for you, if GRU had ‘em in 1968, was GRU hiding then from his mum? when we see him watch the moon landing which happened the next year, the minions aren’t in that seen but his mum is not shocked at all when she sees them when the movie takes place

the minions are based on the kids prisoners of Jews from ww 2 by hitlers crazy scientist, the reason the kids look like minions is because a crazy scientist locked their heads by a metal helmet by not looking or not talking so that’s why the minions don’t talk normal language

So uuhhh, sorry to burst your bubble mat, but they're genetic clones lol, the shorts attached to either the first or second movie literally spelled out to the audience that each of the minions are genetic clones of each other, made by each other in Gru's lab. Bruh moment.
