The Minions are supporting characters in the Despicable Me franchise. They are yellow pill-shaped creatures who are Gru’s minions, and are characterized by their childlike behavior and unique language, which is almost intelligible at times.
Why They're Great
- They are comedic and hilarious comic reliefs for most of the time.
- They are the icon of Illumination.
- Their relationship with Gru is really heartwarming; instead of their boss abusing them like most henchmen, Gru gets along well with them. Their interactions with the girls were adorable too.
- They spawned some very funny internet memes.
- They also got their own short films and spin-off movie.
- Their character designs are pretty cute.
- Although comic reliefs, they can be annoying at times.
- They were extremely overmarked.
- They can be quite mean to each other, especially in the first movie.
- Their movie wasn't too great, but at least they get to have their own movie before Gru.
