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!

  • The minions are indo-europeans confirmed.

  • The minions could asexually reproduce

  • How many times did you say Minions in this single video lol

  • Actually gru didn’t kiss that one minion because he already did. Not because he doesn’t like that minion (9:54)

  • BIRTH day*

  • ....(why am I doing this) birth DAY is 2012

  • I knew minions spoke a mix of languages cuz for ok/yes it’s ‘si’ which is Spanish Edit: and some of their language is English

  • Me reading the title: *99.9999 of my brain cells are gone now*

  • Minions look like single celled bacteria with flagella😉😁...having their own DNA.

  • I use to have a DVD of the first movie and I'm pretty sure there was a behind the scenes video that mentioned that Gru made the minions

  • I thought this video would be about the Holocaust experiments theory

  • It is funny that why lot kid watch it me watch it 215 time.

  • If you clone a human its still a human same with minions

  • have you gone insane

  • If its not a minion the its a yellow pill shaped creature. XD

  • can you do a video explaining how aquaman does to swim that fast

  • The minions were based off of Jewish children captured by the nazis. They were given large helmets to restrict their breathing and sight. The heavy helmets also stunted their growth, causing them to be short and wearing goggles.

  • I think it's in the behind the scenes section of the movie but gru actually was the creator of ALL minions using hard boiled egg yokes and in the minions movie they retconned it so that the minions have always existed which makes no sense but hey they needed a loose plot so they can make money off of milking the popularity of the minions just like frozen two milked it and was way worse then the first one

  • Ive never liked the minions i only like the 3 main ones and only for some of the jokes.


  • What if there were more tribes of minions?

  • Make a video about " Love, Death and Robots" please...

  • Lol I actually went to that minion ride at universal studios, it was kinda cool 🤧🤧

  • I was told/read somewhere when the first movie came out that minions were genetically modified corn pops cereal. Couldn't ever find anything confirming that, but I've always liked that theory.

  • Couldn’t there just have been... ya know... More ‘clans’ of minions that all found Gru?

  • okey MatPat is the perfect example of taking kid animated movies WAY too far

  • Another thing might be gru and dr naffario after discovering the minions went out to diffrent islands to discover more, who is to say that the ones we followed werent a small amount that the actual number of minions?

  • I hate minions

  • Mat is a diferent father .... " hey so you like minions ? ...hmmm.... did you know they are actually PEOPLE that have been FORCIBLY transformed into MINIONS .... kinda cool "

  • Yo do a theory on Jack Stauber PLEASE. His videos are CREEPY and need some explanation.

  • Film theory by Ron: #2 content creators are real life SLnumber minions. Their secret: your a big dumb dumb head with hopes of becoming a minion some day.

  • That Minion robot picture is going to haunt my nightmares

  • What's with the purple ribbon around your neck?

  • Fun Fact: what minions say can actually be translated.

  • Tbh mat this video could have been much shorter. Entertaining nonetheless

  • ok but like that clip of oliver brought back that christmas morning feeling and it made me so happy- also, that means 10,170 minions are clones

  • My oldest son is five, MatPat, and your Ollie reminds me so much of him at two that it's ridiculous.

  • Why is half the title literally the word “minion”? What the heck matpat?

  • If you go to peppa pig you will see tm on the entro

  • I will watch this ten times over just for Ollie getting excited at minions

  • I've seen the movies a thousand times(I have kids) but I never knew his name was Felonious, always thought it was just Gru

  • I felt really old when he said Oliver was 2 😭😭

  • Yeah they are thats why theyre called minions

  • I'm calling it some are clones

  • hello uhh do you have discord

    • @mikin lirou huh ya tht makes sense

    • Maybe he did something to a minion and it made another minion so he didn't again so that's why there's too many i do not know but they totally have dna

  • How do I sign up to be a henchman? Overalls AND karate classes sign me UP

  • Awe, Ollie was so adorable when he saw the blow up!

  • The cars in cars aren't cars

  • Hi mattpat Can you try doing something on the cartoon series 'talking tom and friends' Like maybe: Who are gingers parents? What the CEO, ceo of? Where is the town?

  • I feel sorry for Matpat's son already when he sees this video.

  • Gen z's children are gonna binge on this

  • it's so obvious and even you pointed it out matpat, minions aren't clones, they reproduce by dividing into genetic copies of each other JUST LIKE CELLS YOU ACKNFOFIAFLVewsdgvivsdg

  • Do you think the original minions have glowing skeletons like the 1 in the 1st movie or is that a added genetic trait like the glow in the dark cats?

  • Theory: if you remember in the first despicable me movie gru said how is the family indicating that minions do reproduce

    • And that they do have children

  • He could just turn him self slightly minion so he lives forever

  • Actually the Facebook post by Despicable Me said that the number of minions is 7.793400539 E+37262

  • oh end thre a bit of italian

  • YOU HAVE A SON!!!!!

  • Minions also speak 'Nihongo' - Japanese.

  • Maybe he did something to a minion and it made another minion so he didn't again so that's why there's too many i do not know but they totally have dna

  • *Flash backs I had in cars in cars the movie cars*

  • can you make a coraline theory

  • Sometimes I wonder if these titles are just self-parodies.

  • MatPat will most probably crush his own child’s dream, using scientific research and facts.

  • for a second there I thought I was on false swipe gaming's "How good was x pokemon really?"

  • 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

  • Childhood happiness being made with Minion inflatables

  • Don't they actually say in the movie something along the lines of “we all come from the same single cell organism”???

  • I love how this channel crushes my childhood but i watch it anyway

  • Film Theory: The original minions are God

  • 8:40 imposter???

  • I have a poster for the minions movie in my room behind the right side of my bed beside my dresser

    • the part with matpat and Oliver was so adorable and wholesome especially the part where matpat called him bean! 🥺

  • Mat Calls his Son Bean??? hold on I need moment that's just so sweet

  • I love this vid best yet❤️❤️❤️

  • God I hate people

  • Hello

  • You could have cut like 8 min just by showing off the blueprints

  • That meme at the end is pretty funny! 😂 Also: love how you keep puting a meme at the end of every Film Theory™️ video! Like that is some serious dedication!

  • I’m a child

  • Did you get a Devore with your wife?

  • 0:56 "dog goes home" uhh you mean Bolt right?

  • 1:56 When Oliver is wholesome

  • If they serve the biggest villain, then I wonder who was their boss in 20th century

    • Minions are responsible for the holocaust confirmed

  • Aw man can we have atleast a girl minion in this house?


  • Soooo..... No ones gonna talk about where were minions in the 1940s?

  • Wonder how long it takes to edit any of these videos

  • I’m sorry... “I got you some minions Bean!” MY HEART 🥺❤️✨
