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!

  • It could also be that gru might also be immortal like the minions I mean not completely immortal like the minions, but immortal as not dying out of old age or a disease maybe

  • Theory idea Matt: the movie petter rabbit, I throughly believe that petter had caused his father’s death. I throughly think that petter some how talked his dad into go into the garden; which caused his dad’s death. Reason I believe this because of petter’s obsessive behavior to “protect the garden”. Also he always continues to talk his family into doing dangerous stunts throughout the whole movie. Just a thought, thanks for listening and hopefully considering this to be a true theory.

  • Another possible thing that could happen with the minions is that they're like cells (just bigger) and they divide, making a new minion. (Which would be much simpler than taking DNA from different minions, figuring out how to add it to a gun and convert someone else into one)

  • In the subtitles of the first movie, the minions "language" is referred to as gibberish. In the second and third movies, it's referred to as "Minionese". Which one is it?

  • Ok so Most of the minions are just clones right. So the minions in minions aren’t minions but clones of the original minions which makes them minions right.

  • Major issues with this. A. We are not positive that the minions we follow in Minions are the ONLY minions, there could be paralleled sets around the world. B. As the initial minions do not reproduce, they cannot have evolved through traditional means. They would need some sort of mutagenic cancer to replace old tissues with new ones. This also implies that minion immortality comes from some sort of regenerative properties. However, if the minions did have some sort of miracle evolution cancer cells, due to the complete lack of natural selection, it is statistically impossible (citation needed) for the minions to all evolve paralleled to each other, and the differences would be essentially random.

  • I just got a new song / game / film theory well I was just listening to the Bill cipher rap on HUworld and well when it makes rain noises at the beginning and his eye gets bigger some pictures of bendy and the ink machine show up and maybe Bill cipher is working with Joey Drew because well they're both evil and well if he's been to the ink machine area where you the person are he probably seen you and is probably helping bendy this is just a theory I have so maybe it's true maybe you could do a video on it one day by the way I'm a big fan I've been watching ever since I was 10 years old I have grown up watching your videos and well you just made my life a better place with your videos I really call me cuz I am such a gamer geek knowing there's other people like me makes me feel a little safer because I get picked on a lot because of it so knowing there's more geeks like me makes me feel safe...

  • You're kinda over thinking this

  • ok so i'm not sure if matpat has already done this but, I was being forced to watch pokemon with my younger sister, and now that I know animal abuse, doesn't it seem like animal abuse? Like the pokemon are just being captured (against their will) then forced to fight. Then if pikachu is almost dead! ash does nothing! He doesn't end the fight, he doesn't call for a pokemon nurse, no he tells pikachu, to keep going! please forgive my language, but like wtf?!?! Also ash in these series seems like 11! (I know that matpat calculated is age, but he has the mentality of a 11 year old) Ash and the other side characters in the many series, are just kids and wondering around! They shouldn't be taking care of like 100 pokemon! Plus im sure they don't feed them all the time (like the ones that ash just doesn't give a). So new theory, should peta come after pokemon trainers?
