Bob as king of England.

Bob was the only Minion interested in Kevin's journey, after begging him he was able to join. On the way to their destination, Kevin carried him sometimes. Bob is tired, and grew hungry halfway through the journey and tries to eat Kevin with Stuart, who has a hallucination that the minions are bananas.

When arriving to New York, Bob is quite interested in a parade against the war, so he holds a sign with "BOO-YA!" on it. Later, the trio visit an album store, and Bob follows a female customer because her clothes have lots of bananas drawn on it. Soon, Bob is accidentally brought into the taxi with the woman's baggage by the taxi driver. She soon notices Bob and shrieks then throws him and his teddy bear out. Then, he enters a department store while Kevin and Stuart search for him after noticing him missing. Kevin grabs the loudspeaker of the store and calls Bob, while Bob enters a changing room, thinking Kevin is inside. In the room, he sees lots of mirrors on the wall seeing his reflection, he thinks it is his buddies, he runs bumping into it and discovers it's not real. Kevin goes into the room, and Bob tells Kevin he misses the tribe. Kevin hands him his teddy bear just before the light goes out.

He is quite excited when he sees some information from VNC, a top secret channel about villains. In Villain-Con, Bob meets Professor Flux, who invented a time machine, but the professor is killed by one of his future avatars. In Scarlet Overkill's speech, Bob accidentally wins Scarlet's challenge, getting her ruby - he tries to retrieve his teddy bear and accidentally swallows the ruby when numerous villains try to get it chaotically.

In London, England, he is given a Stretch Suit by Herb Overkill to steal Queen Elizabeth II's crown. He later wields Arthur Pendragon's sword in the stone (with the help of the stretch suit), Elizabeth gets abdicated, and Bob is crowned as the new King of England. (His speech in Buckingham Palace can be seen in here). Although, later, Scarlet and Herb arrives in Buckingham Palace, and Bob abdicates in favor of her. Nevertheless, she sends him with Kevin and Stuart to be tortured. After escaping the torture room, the trio makes it to Scarlet's coronation at Westminster Abbey, where Stuart and Bob accidentally drop a chandelier on her. After hiding himself from the chase from other various villains, Bob gets fooled and captured by HY.

The next day, Bob and Stuart are tied up to a pile of explosives, ready to be set off by the Overkills, but Kevin breaks in and saves them. Meanwhile, after thinking Kevin had "died" with Scarlet's missile in the later fight, Bob was the first one to mourn his "death". But it turns out that Kevin is alive, and he returns to normal size, and he returns to him as a teddy bear.

At the end of the movie, Queen Elizabeth II thanks Bob for being king and rewards him with a tiny crown for his teddy bear Cheerio Bear and he hugs her in return, he later gives the crown to Scarlet in pity, and says goodbye to her, as he joins alongside the Minion tribe pursuing Felonius Gru.

Despicable Me 3[]

Bob wasn’t in the movie but he only appears in the Illumination opening. But it’s possible that he appeared in the movie as a cameo.

Minions: The Rise of Gru[]

Bob first appears when he, Stuart, & Kevin fetch a young Gru [1] from school, off to the theater to watch Jaws [2]all by themselves after warding off the moviegoers with a fart bomb. They then go to an arcade, & after such head to an ice cream shop, where he left a stuffed toy in the tips jar. After taunting some people at the gym with their ice cream, they get back home with a message from the Vicious 6, having been accepted for interviewing. He & the others then go to the basement (aka Gru's first evil lair) where Gru tells all the Minions the good news. Later that night, he asks Gru if he could sleep with him due to having a nightmare, & while he isn't convinced about the nightmare story, he still lets him sleep with him, followed by Kevin & Stuart.

The next day, the Minion trio decide to follow Gru to his interview, but he insists they stay at home. They follow him anyways, distracting Otto along the way as he was going on another of his long-winded talks again, though he manages to find them anyways. They all get on Gru's jet bike after the latter started being pursued by the Vicious 6 following a disastrous interview. While they manage to evade them, Otto has accidentally traded the stone for a pet rock, forcing Gru to fire the Minions before fleeing to find the stone himself.

After the disastrous night, the Minions receive a phone call from Wild Knuckles, who demands the Zodiac Stone as ransom for him to set Gru free, as he & his henchmen kidnapped him last evening. He, Kevin, & Stuart then go to San Francisco to infiltrate Wild Knuckles' house to save Gru, but get chased by his henchmen into Chinatown after their disguises fail. Master Chow saves the 3 & Kevin decides they should get kung fu lessons as a way to get Gru back. While at first the retired teacher refuses, Bob convinces her by making puppy eyes, with Kevin & Stuart following him. During training, Bob accidentally sneezes on the board he was meant to break, cutting it in half. Master Chow then proceeds to drop many things on Bob's head, though he still comes out perfectly fine. The rest of the training doesn't go well from there, however, especially unbeknownst to them as they leave, they're still in the junior level & still had to train. This doesn't stop the Minion trio from finding Gru's whereabouts, where the Vicious 6 (now monstrous beasts) tied him up to the hands of a clock, & they're turned into animals, Bob becomes a goat. The fight turns out terrible, until they're reminded about Master Chow advising them to unleash their "inner beast". They do such & manage to defeat the Vicious 6 as Gru, whom Otto has released, transformed them into rats.

Next morning, a staged funeral is held for Wild Knuckles (as he was actually live) which Bob attends with the rest of the Minion tribe. Later on, Gru successfully hires Dr. Nefario thanks to Bob's puppy eyes plea, which, Gru & all the other Minions also do. They then ride on Gru's would-be airship.

Despicable Me 4[]

In the main movie. Bob makes a cameo at the ending along with Kevin and Stuart. He can be seen next to Stuart spinning around with his Teddy Bear Tim. In the opening, He was seen putting toy pegs on a wall while Stuart comes with a LED peg toy gun. Confused. He stands up and looks at the gun. And then Stuart shoots the plugs on the wall. Due to it being too loud, Bob covers his ears and then Kevin comes and flips a light switch to light up the logo. And then Stuart shoots Bob with the toy gun. And then Kevin laughs at Bob and Stuart. Stuart then comes and shoots Kevin.

His appearance is slightly different. He became slightly plumper. Except for the Illumination opening.

"KING BOB!!" - Bob finishing his speech in Minions (film).



  • In Despicable Me 2 Bob is similar to Jerry, except he has heterochromia and is bald.
    • Writer Brian Lynch has added the fact Bob is heterochromatic because movie director Pierre Coffin is a huge fan of English singer David Bowie, who had two different eyes.[1]
      • In fact, David Bowie's collaboration with Queen, "Under Pressure", was used in trailers for Minions.
    • Hence, he is so far the only known minion to have heterochromia while the eyes of other normal minions are all brown; though Evil Minions do have purple eyes and Alex has blue eyes.
  • He is also the shortest known minion, while the former shortest minion or shortest one-eyed minion was Stuart.
