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'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?

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)

You actually made a mistake in the beginning in the movie life of pets the animals can’t talk they’re just showing you that the animals understand each other but when they show you the humans perspective when max is trying to convince his owner to remove that brown dog she can’t understand him she just hears barking
