    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!

      Fun fact: In Orlando Universal Resort, there's a 4D minion ride and the theme is based on using a device that can turn you into a minion and has the option to turn you back into a human

    6. HereWeGo Again

    21. Punykirby

      My only problem is how do we know the mutated minions WERENT apart of the original 230? The only minions we know for a fact apart of the original 230 is Bob , Chris, Dave, Eric ,Henry ,Kevin ,Norbert, Stuart, Tom and Tony, that leaves 220 unnamed, those of which could had been infected Its been awhile since I watched the second movie but I believe one of the name 10 originals was infected, I think it was Bob or Stuart

    22. Maryam The Snek

      We'll find out more in the new Minons movie rise of Gru in 2022

    23. Antonio Zurita

      Do they stop being minions by being clones?

    24. Chara Violet

      So they ARE all minions, it's just some of them are clones. Therefore identical to the original minions, just there's more of them. (Not counting any possible human ones, I guess)

    25. NoiseHERO

      This wasn’t aggressively obvious????

    35. Lex Caesar Manikan Jr

    45. Frost Gaming

    46. Aeir Crown

      are we gonna gloss over the fact matpat steal a minion on a Mr beast video for his son?

    47. Nolan's world

      So we here that matpat calls his son as a nickname Bean. So does that mean that if his son gets a FIblock channel he's going to call it like bean vlogs or something

    48. Tfnafplayer2

      Mrbeat: here is 100000$ worth of minions murch

    49. Child_Chomper

      Gru's acscent is so iconic! I FREAKIN LOVE IT!!!! Especially when he says "I wIlL sTuFf yOu aLl iN zE cRuSt!!!"

    59. Olls84

      "It's all of us who will be forced to serve them." Yeeeaaah suuuuure, because 10,000 Minions will tooootally be able to command 10B Humans.

    60. SansShow Gamecore

      Also, i think they have evolutionary remnants from their cell stage, since some of them can glow in the dark when shaked, and can also produce light when electrocuted, as seen on the movies

    61. Seamus Wellen


    62. PlzEndR34...BcuzMyEyesCantTakeItAnymore

      1. marcus the epic gamer


    67. The Void Cult Boi

      I predict he'll mention that Despicable Me thing at Universal Studios. They at least used to have some uh ride? Dunno what you called that experience but it supposedly made you a minion. I'll edit when he either mentions it or the video ends. Edit: He mentioned it, it wasn't right but still it's brought up

    68. 𝓗𝓸𝔂

      Minions is not a yellow color but minion is a green and red color through the phone and PC and other devices every time we see green and red mixed together and looks like yellow but our brain gets tricked obviously

    69. lolDude19

      i like the og minions more than the clone

    70. Lucas LaFollette

      Lol I love the minions they are so funny😆

    71. The Coin jar

      If you think about it it’s is very likely the minions were involved in both world wars in their universe

    72. Jim Pickens

      fun fact: when i was a baby i called minions yellow cheese

    73. I I

      i don’t think matpat understand what fiction mean

    74. Kong

      What if I told you that absolutely *A N Y T H I N G* can be a minion so long as they work for a villian

    75. lunatic cultist


    76. savage me

      The versed digital adventitiously spoil because clarinet intralysosomally practise atop a fabulous magazine. ignorant, fabulous cultivator

    77. Grant Krieger

      You call your son bean that's so cute

    78. Erica Scott

      But what if the Minions asexually reproduce?

    79. Liam Rankin

      WAIT STOP NOW!... 11:18 UMMM... IF IT WAS 1968 to 2010 GRU'S 12!!!!!!!!!!!

    80. Dominic Lalama

      They also outright say that they are clones in orientation day.

    81. Carly-Ann Mitchell

      This is definately the correct theory 😥

    82. Carl Sean Paul Timola

      Wait What if he turned himself imortal?

    83. Carl Sean Paul Timola

      They literally dont have a nose

    84. R F W

      This theory will be backed up by the new movie the rise of gru so maybe you might want to make a part 2 of this theory maybe not.

    85. william house

      Imposter minion that's kinda sus

    86. iiSunset RiversYTii

      or it could be like some unicellular cells reproduce binary fission but instead of a nucleus its their brain then this would explain their stupidity

    87. Darksorin

      World theory: The Humans in Terra AREN'T HUMANS!

    88. Militant Pacifist

      My mom calls them “Twinkies”. 😂

    89. I Draw Long Sharp Teeth

      Matpat: The Minions have a secret!!!! Me: Wait.... Despicable Me and The Secret Life of Pets ARE IN THE SAME UNIVERSE?!?!?!😱😱😱

    90. The Shroomfruit Channel

      I have descended into madness

    91. Kurt Adriele

      What 😳

    92. Cool Brickz

      Why can’t the minions just die. #IHATETHEMINONS

    93. Jack Ellis

      Dude, if the minions are robots, I really hope that despicable me is a prequel to “Halloween 3: Season Of The Witch” and Gru is a younger Conal Cochran

    94. Tayseer Alnabelsi


    95. Tyler Barwin

      Or they can duplicate like these spec things

    96. keekeeplayz

      The beginning of minions started with 2 or 3 tiny minions meaning their population does grow and the bigger population makes more new minions

    97. GamepadsObjectiveVideos

      Is anyone gonna talk about how the video inside this video has 5M likes at 10:56 but in reality it has 150K?

    98. Cultish Magic

      "The minions in minions aren't minions!" Ah yes, the floor wasn't made from floor. (No, seriously the floor isn't really made out of floor. Welcome to the reality)
