    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!

    2. זיו שוסטר

      Can you do more videos of A:TLA especially on fire bending and on how they can lightning bend

    3. Cesalyn Tañega

      True i know they aren't minions when i was 10 years old

    4. Baris Klausen

      all because minions come back on netflix ????

    5. Teacup Boi


    6. Steven Grayson

      So the minions are clones of minions, in other words they’re minions...

    7. Michael Waters

      Honestly I watched despicable me without liking the minions I never liked them much

    8. Zach FiGart

      Off topic from this video, but I’d love to see an honest, broken down analysis of a fight between Bill Cipher and Thanos. According to research on both of them they are both pretty evenly matched. I personally think Bill would win, but a break from this channel would be so cool!

    9. MarkEplier-kun

      For a second I thought he was using human sound from worldbox

    10. HVRLCKFB 111

      I would love if you make a episode on how strong is the character Anvin in the story of rise of dragons written by Morgan rice like he didn't have any power but he survived being trampled by a army of thousands of huge creatures like a army of them I would like to help it happen in the book of that series forge of valor chapter 13 because I don't want you all to suffer that much at searching book and chapter please make a episode on it I need to know

    11. YoyoDrawsStuff

      HEY VIDEO IDEA! How about a theory about Sr Pelo's Spooky Month series???

    12. nathan chastain

      Who would win a 1v1 between a full realized avatar (air bender series or korra/ past lives included) or any of the avengers ?

    13. Martin Axel Gamer

      Also as thomas

    14. Kafj302

      JUST thought of a theory that could change a beloved classic movie. "Willy wonka/Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" do we ever see any Female oompa loompas? Could the oompa loompas be minions?

    15. Hudson Fathers


    16. Tuan Dao

      movie : Cloudy with a chance with meatballs | theory idea : Is it possible to make water into food? (or) Can you survive Cloudy with a chance with meatballs?

    17. Twix Bar

      Bro I like your content but could you do a theory about the new Star Wars series the bad batch about how ammega is related to the bad batch because it really bothers me so can you plz take my question or theory of how she is related okay plz take notice.

    18. Brayden

      Forget the minions, I watched these movies for Gru. And obviously Squid Launcher, oh yeah!

    19. qity

      can you do a video on how the other mother from Coraline isn't the true monster, rather the tunnel, something bigger, scarier. this is highlighted in the book :)

    20. mining764 111

      hey MatPat, do you think u could do a theory on the new netflix movie the michaels vs the machines ps i cant spell anything

    21. Robo Surfer

      Do camp camp! I dont know what you would do for camp camp, but i would love if you did a theory on Camp Camp

    22. Tara Campos

      hey mat pat how fast is the flash?

    23. Roberto Huerta Huerta

      Heres what happened they ate so much bananas that they copied themselves doyyy

    24. Paola Casas

      When re you gonna make a video about The Mitchels vs. The Machines? I really like the movie but on you last video about the Emoji breaking law I was wondering if TM vs TM was doing the same thing?

    25. eydya


    26. Sean Tan

      Theory idea: so in Invisible, apparently the Viltrumite DNA is so pure that Mark is almost pure viltrumite. Could this mean that Mark only inherited dominant genes from his father? Would that make Mark share no physical similarities with his mom? If Mark made a baby with another human, would the kid be 50% viltrumite or still pure?

    27. Emma Norris

      Hey Matt can you do a theory on the owl House

    28. kiesha power-arts


    29. Luisa Collado

      " Minions In Minions Arent Minions" wait wha-

    30. ツenzo

      Heres an idea for a theory: DIO'S The World can make a steam roller out of no where

    31. Luis Rodrigo Castillo Álvarez

      Yo, do a theory on that Malcolm episode in which Hal has to decide to disconnect a guy in a coma or keep him alive. By the end of the episode we learn he actually took a third choice that was so awesome and convoluted he decided he would never talk about it again.

    32. HuffingHeifer88

      How GOOD were Minions ACTUALLY????

    33. Daniel S

      The movie "Taken" part one. I think the dad let's her get kidnapped just to save his family relationship. He becomes the hero when she is rescued. Do a theroy on that

    34. Grey Goblin

      Wait but if Gru is so good with cloning dna couldn't he just either make HIMSELF immortal or clone himself? Then he alone could care for the minions until the end of time, therefore UN dooming the world:)

    35. Alvin Stormward

      thanks for ruining my day and childhood lol.

    36. J T

      Oh MatPat.... You forget that Gru has daughters. When he's gone, you know those three crazy gals will be taking over the family business in a variety of ways. Either they'll continue being eccentric super villains, or they'll take up the work Gru began as an international secret agent. All the while, they'll have the minions to back them up, since.... yanno.... the daughters would be the minions next obvious choice as someone to follow. They might be dumb, but they aren't stupid. They aren't going to wander off when the next in line to command them have been living under the same roof as they have for literal years at that point. Then after the daughters are all gone, there's a good chance they'll have had children of their own that the minions can continue to follow. If anything, Gru and Nefario unwittingly created a work force of service for all future generations of Gru's family.

    37. Rhys May

      I am not sure where else to pit this so here it is recently I watch a favorite movie of mine the adventures of tin tin and one see got me thinging in this seen a women was able to break a bullet proof case made of some kind of crystal and was wondering of this is possible plans if so how high would there voice need to go

    38. azha rash

      i used to like this channel

    39. IANOYTYK

      However, it says the Minons seek out the "evilest" thing to follow. Gru isn't isolated- he's actually in a lot of contact with a large portion of the underworld. But the Minons stay with him... Is that because he hasn't died? Or because people are generally a lot nicer in this world?

    40. GlitchKids Gaming

      Can you make a theory on ninjago next? I Know you've probably never watched it but its one my favorite shows and I really want to see a theory about it.

    41. Ben Noble

      Aren’t clones still members of the species they’re cloned from?

    42. Gemma Janning

      I know this is completely irrelevant to minions but is anyone else confused at what Charlie's mom says in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? She says: "There's a hundred billion people in this world...". It is just as easy if not easier to say: "Seven billion", which is WAYYY more accurate than a hundred billion, even if it's not an exact number. Please consider this for a future episode! It has been bugging me ever since I saw the movie for the first time!

    43. Star Blazed

      O god these poor mind controlled kids

    44. Quinn Carter

      Can you go over INVINCIBLE

    58. kit the cats


    59. FBI open up

      Love you matpat BUT i thought it was just common knowledge that Gru made most of the minion's.(will admit the rest of the video did not expect tho)

    60. Zygi Productions


    61. Thé Boyś

      Hey Matt idk If you will see that but you should do a theory on Invincible on why omni man killed the gaurdians of the globe

    62. Luke Brocklehurst

      I still prefer the original idea that Minions were created by Gru and Dr Nefario's genetic engineering experiments. It was mentioned in an animated short that was on the DVD release of the first movie.

    63. やな

      what a way to give food for thought, i'd go crazy if i ever need to serve a fickle minion as my boss

    64. clintusmaximus

      the minion evolved over centuries and eventually become the dominant species and rename the earth Kerbin

    65. Harun Ibrica

      So minions are clones? Whats next, minions execute order 66?

    66. Tertius Bruwer

      I don't think you should show these Vidoes to your son

    67. Da'dren Borders

      Film Theory How science can give me superpowers and make you longer And Hunger and Say this character is me

    68. OwuraO

      Hey Matpat, you should look at How to Make a Slow-Cooked Beef Stew by HowToBasic. I think it's more mysterious than we think.

      1. Iliana Jackevičiūtė

        yeah good point

    69. BlueCat cartoon's

      minions speak comme ça ¿y esto? i never knew.

    70. Tre Twine

      I think that you might be wrong about try creating more minions being a curse if minions have been killing villains since the dawn of time except for the one villain that wasn't evil. Arent they more likely to be secret agents for good?

    71. Jonathan Miller

      My dog's name is Oliver.

    86. LoneWolf772

      Was Antman in end game a product of the hidden universe quantum view. He only showed up in that universe because that was the universe he wouldn't die. He was in the quantum realm where he could easily change worlds. If he died he would be superseded by the universe.

    87. Django Tierney

      Idk why, but I really want matt to work on salad fingers now that episode 11 is out...

    88. Kitty Springy

      I watched coralline and there was a red stain on her dad’s shirt when he was putting her to bed in the normal world. There’s also quite a few secrets you didn’t cover for Coraline.

    94. Brett DiFrischia

      The best joke in the first "Despicable Me" was meant for folks in finance. It was the sign above the door to the bank that read "Bank of Evil" and right below "formerly Lehman Brothers". I was the only person in the theater laughing.
