"Evil is for adults who steal powerful ancient stones and wreck havoc, and not for tubby little punks who should be at school...learning, taking a recess, sucking his thumb!"
— Belle Bottom ridiculing Gru

Belle Bottom is the main antagonist of Minions: The Rise of Gru. She is the current leader of the Vicious 6 who dresses as a disco diva.


Belle Bottom is a female with black afro hair, golden hoop earrings, a pink ruffled collar, and a dark purple jacket. She wears a light purple bell-sleeved catsuit, magenta heeled boots, and pink accents. She also wears a pair of two golden and brown polka-dotted sashes.


Belle Bottom is best described as rude, sassy, and immoral. She was willing to let Wild Knuckles fall to his death and take his place as the leader of the Vicious 6 and is even willing to cause complete chaos and mass destruction to get what she wants. She is also shown to be petty, evidenced that she had Gru tied to the hands of a clock to be torn apart even after getting what she wanted. Although she is portrayed in a comedic way, she is just as threatening as the other Despicable Me villains.


Minions: Rise of Gru[]

Belle Bottom and the "Vicious 6" end up becoming traitors to their original leader Wild Knuckles, taking the Zodiac Stone from him after he stole it for them, and abandoning him in the jungle. Belle then took over as the leader of the Vicious 6. When the Vicious 6 met Gru in person afterward, Belle Bottom immediately judged him as being too young and small to be a true villain. Belle Bottom shows the Zodiac Stone to Gru, taunting him, and tells him to come back only when he does something evil to impress her. When another aspiring villain shows up and ends up distracting the Vicious 6, Gru manages to steal the stone. Belle Bottom then sees Gru as a threat and tries to stop him with her team, but was unable to capture him after he took the Zodiac Stone. Belle Bottom and the Vicious 6 chase Gru and his Minions.

Days later, during the Chinese New Year festival in China Town in San Francisco, Belle Bottom uses the Zodiac Stone to transform into a powerful dragon. She then kidnaps Gru and tied him to the hands of a clock, threatening to tear him apart. When Gru’s Minions show up to save him, Belle Bottom laughs and challenges the three Minions to a "fair fight", using the Zodiac Stone to transform Kevin into a rabbit, Bob into a goat and Stuart into a rooster. When Belle Bottom was eventually defeated by the Minions and Wild Knuckles, she was transformed into a little rat along with her gang after Gru reverses the effect of the Zodiac Stone. The AVL was then able to arrest and detain the Vicious 6, placing them in a cage in their rat forms.

Despicable Me 4[]

In Despicable Me 4, Belle appears in a short cameo in the finale. She is seen singing with the other AVL prisoners.

Powers and Abilities[]

  • Extendable Chain Belt with a Disco Ball Mace: Belle Bottom wears it in her outfit, but she also uses it as a weapon when necessary, such as distracting AVL agents or trying to catch Gru and the minions when she and the Vicious 6 try to catch them for stealing the Zodiac Stone.
  • Dragon Physiology: Belle Bottom's dragon form is by far the largest of any of the Vicious 6's zodiac forms, measuring multiple stories tall at the head in an average standing position on all fours. Kevin is less than one-half the height of her hindpaws even when they're bent and roughly the length of her toes, and goat Bob is only slightly taller than her toes. Her hind feet are comparable in size to a small car.
    • Superhuman Strength: As a massive dragon, the ground shakes under every step of her huge paws. This is only occasionally true for one other member's zodiac form, Stronghold's bull form. She can easily flatten a van by whipping her tail.
    • Superhuman Durability:
    • Superhuman Speed:
    • Fire Breath: In her dragon form, Belle Bottom has the ability to spit out fire from her mouth.
