The Boxer Minion Costume is a playable character in Minion Rush. It costs 70 costume cards and 10 coins to unlock or can be bought in occasional bundle offers in the Shop.


The Boxer Minion Costume wears blue and white boxing shorts with Gru's logo on it. It also has red boxing gloves.



  • The costume's original coin price was 1,000, but the game makers changed it to 10 coins to help all players unlock it faster.
  • It was first released in the 2.1.1 version on September 16, 2014.
  • It is also the first costume released after the Jelly Lab update.
  • Boxer's old power (in the jelly lab versions) was extended time for all Power-Ups in The Volcano.
  • The costume design may have been inspired by the Minion mini-movie Competition, which was released much later in December 2015.
    • However, the Boxer costume was introduced way before Competition was released, this could have been a teaser for the mini-movie while it was early in development.
  • Its skills changed upon the release of the game update v.6.5.0 (formerly shorter penalty in Avoid Missions, currently more jump-overs in Avoid Missions). Currently, a task that this costume's skills are required is jumping over obstacles while avoiding collecting bananas and this costume's powers may seem to be a lot better than Ghost's or Egyptian's, but avoiding bananas missions are extremely hard to complete. The old skills (shorter penalty) that were offered in the late jelly lab versions were much more helpful. As a matter of fact, until update v.6.4.0 there were no avoid missions at all, making this costume's powers useless. The game makers probably thought that giving shorter penalty in any costume made the avoid missions too easy even without any boost on jump-overs in this case.
