Despicable Me Wiki

Competition is a short film that is included with the Blu-ray release of the film Minions. The main plot is about two Minions competing in various ways in a secret bomb laboratory.


One afternoon, two Minions were working in an underground Secret Bomb Lab. One of them is Jerry and the other one is Phil. They have nothing to do, so Jerry throws a waste paper ball into a trash can. In response, Phil does the same thing but in farther distance; so Jerry throws another paper ball again in even farther distance and throw it in his opposite direction, so Phil teases him.

However, there's two pairs of boxing mittens, so a ring is activated, they begin to fight and fight with fingers in later part. Soon their mittens are removed, they begin to slap each other by bare hands. Afterwards, they get exhausted as Jerry knocks Phil out of the ring. His partner takes thrusters and another competition begins, they bind those thrusters on chairs; they begin to rush. In the path, there's Euchariah doing experiments but be disturbed by their accelerating rush. Jerry is pushed by Phil on the walkway and some large bombs fall off; as the walkway and the Minions' path go downstairs of the lab, so when a bomb crashes the walkway, they begin to fall. In their falling, Jerry still wants to compete, they accelerate by escaping their chairs, running, and then pulling falling bombs to try to make themselves faster than their opponents. They can see that are reaching the bottom of the lab when an explosion goes off. Although the two bombs exploded, they were okay but the lab appeared to be seriously damaged. Jerry notices a piece of paper fall onto his face, and the trash can that begins this competition, which is now burning black, also falls near to the Minions. Phil then says, "eh!", to which Jerry agreed.


  • The laboratory is in a deserted land, but the location has never appeared in the main movies. This lab is apparently different from Gru's House and Gru's Lab.
