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!

  • Can a clone of a minion really not be a minion? The answer that they are clones precedes clones of what--minions. So the clones are minions

  • Well, I think the conclusion is wrong. The clone of a sheep is still a sheep, right? Genetically they are literally identical. So the clone of a minion of course is a minion. An exact copy. (at least if Gru managed to perfect cloning, but given his ability with genetics I'd think so)
