Despicable Me Wiki
Minion Rush Bapple

The player's minion about to grab a Bapple in the Residential Area.

Bapples were special items in Minion Rush, and they were giant red apples. Bapples played a major role in the game's daily events.

Three Bapples spawned with each daily event, and appeared in either one of the eight (from Gru's Lab to Super Silly Fun Land, which were all released before July 30th, 2014) locations released before the Jelly Lab update, or they appeared within an item such as the Fluffy UnicornGru's Rocket, Mega Minion or The Moon. Once all three Bapples were collected, the player was able to open a random metal pod for a prize. These prizes included Puzzle Pieces or items such as permanent Banana Multiplier Perk, and Minion Launchers. This was later a fruit in the Jelly Lab updates, minus the "B".

Bapples were retired after the version 2.0.1 update at July 30th, 2014, and they were replaced with fruit the minions collected to make jelly at the Jelly Lab, which ironically include apples. As of the March 2015 update, Bapples were replaced with Stars, which the player collected three of each daily, though Stars were also limited time items during special missions from April Fool's Prank until Ticket to Space.


  • The term "bapple" was first heard at the end the short Banana where a minion can be seen carrying an apple and calling it a "bapple" before taking a bite out of it after several other minions accidentally lose the banana by dropping it into a hole, prompting them to notice the bapple in that minion's hand and proceeding to pursue both him and his bapple. 
  • If the player happened to miss a Bapple in a particular item or location, it will respawn somewhere else in the location or the next time that item is used. 
  • Bapple is a portmanteau of "banana" and "apple". 
  • When a daily event for Bapples begins, all items and locations the three daily Bapples are within will spawn more often than normal. 
  • In fact, all new locations in the game created after the Jelly Lab update don't have bapples, and they are: The VolcanoVector's FortressThe Arctic Base, Minion Park, Eduardo's House, Pier 12, The Pyramids, Bratt's Lair, Prison, and Freedonia.
