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

  1. They are comedic and hilarious comic reliefs for most of the time.
  2. They are the icon of Illumination.
  3. 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.
  4. They spawned some very funny internet memes.
  5. They also got their own short films and spin-off movie.
  7. Their character designs are pretty cute.

Bad Qualities

  1. Although comic reliefs, they can be annoying at times.
  2. They were extremely overmarked.
  3. They can be quite mean to each other, especially in the first movie.
  4. Their movie wasn't too great, but at least they get to have their own movie before Gru.
