The Minions are small, yellow henchmen shaped like pill capsules who have one or two eyes and a few wispy strands of black hair on their heads. Their clothing consists of blue overalls emblazoned with Gru's logo, black rubber gloves and boots, and goggles. They mostly speak incomprehensible gibberish, which is partly derived from other languages, including Bahasa Indonesia, French, English, Italian, Spanish, and Hindi. Although seemingly nonsensical, the English-sounding dialogue is dubbed differently for every country, in order to make the sounds somewhat recognizable. They have the most ordinary of names, with Kevin, Stuart and Bob being the names of the lead trio in Minions, and Mel being the leader of the Minions in Despicable Me 3.
Minions, the 2015 animated feature film, shows that they have existed since the beginning of life on Earth, and want, above all else, to serve the most terrible of villains. In the 2010 short film "Banana", the Minions are revealed to have an uncontrollable craving for fruits, especially bananas.
