The Cookie Robots are robots created by Dr. Nefario and used by Gru to get the shrink ray from Vector. They are apparently disguised as cookies that the girls are selling. However, once the cookie robots opened up a hole in the wall for Gru and the minions to climb through, for some reason, they sealed the opening afterwards and leave, leaving Gru stuck inside of Vector's fortress and almost impossible for them to escape. One was eaten by Vector.

Appearances In Other Media

Minion Rush

The cookie robots are used by Meena as a weapon in Minion Rush. There are two types, big and small; the bigger one must be kept the minion from being crashed while the smaller one can be clicked and then the robot will collide with Meena, which will make her fall from her cart after several collisions, thus the player wins.

Cookie robots can also be used by minions in Minion Races, and it appears as Cookie Bots. When equipping it in minion races, the minion can place it on the track. When other minions bump into it, the robot explodes and makes the minions move slower.


  • The Cookie Bot's operating system is version 1.7. This number is questionable, given that Dr. Nefario had little time to create an abudance of prototypes.
  • The cookie robots in Minion Rush are very different from the original ones in the film. In the game, the bigger robots are as big as minions, while in the original film they are merely bigger than a palm. And it's also questionable for which purpose need Dr. Nefario to create bigger cookie robots.
  • The last seen cookie eaten by Vector was a cookie robot as it's inner workings were visible after he took a bite. �This almost gave it away until Victor finds that there's nothing special about it and thinks that it's just a cookie.
