This page is trivia about Despicable Me 4. Please add any trivia that pertain to that article.

  • The second animated fourth installment film to be produced in 1.85:1 aspect ratio, after Hotel Transylvania: Transformania.
  • Despicable Me 4 is the first time that an Illumination Entertainment franchise has become a quadrilogy.
  • This is the first feature film in the Despicable Me franchise to be produced in 1.85:1 since Minions; the previous two entries Despicable Me 3 and Minions: The Rise of Gru were produced in 2.39:1.
  • Will Ferrell and Sofia Vergara previously co-starred in Strays.
    • Coincidentally, Despicable Me 4 was released one month before the first anniversary of Strays.
  • Steve Carell and Joey King previously co-starred in the Blue Sky Studios film Horton Hears a Who.
  • In the previous film, Dru steals Gru's airship which leads to Gru saying: "We'll give him a five-minute head start" to Lucy. This was originally thought to be an open ending, which suggested Despicable Me 4 would start off where the 3rd film ended.
    • Despite this, the plot goes in a completely different direction, with Dru only appearing in a short, voiceless cameo.
  • This film's release date marks the 11th anniversary of Despicable Me 2's first release date.
  • Mel is also confirmed to return in Despicable Me 4.
  • Otto returns with Kevin, Stuart and Bob in Despicable Me 4.
  • Since Bob was shown to be older in Despicable Me 2 (during the credits), along with the fact that the Despicable Me movies take place long after Minions and Minions: The Rise of Gru, it could be possible Bob would appear in the film in the same design he had in Despicable Me 2, but it’s currently unknown if the new design from Minions and Minions: The Rise of Gru would use instead, however in the TV spot Minions Party Bus, Bob appears in the new design from Minions and Minions: The Rise of Gru.
  • Kevin, Stuart, Bob, Otto and Mel, didn't appear in the first trailer, but they appeared in the second trailer.
    • Kevin, Stuart, and Bob don't appear until the end of the movie.
  • The five Mega Minions are Tim, Mel, Dave, Jerry, and Gus.
    • To promote the movie, Illumination created a "Megaverse" website with what would happen if the Mega Minions got their own franchise with spoofs of other tv shows and movies spanning all the way to 2114.[1]
  • The Mega Minions reference various Marvel heroes. Tim has powers similar to Mr. Fantastic, Mel has powers similar to Cyclops, Dave has powers similar to the Hulk, and Jerry has powers similar to the Thing.
  • The three new Minions in the first trailer (Ron, Phil, and Ralph) were confirmed.
  • Ron (medium) and Phil (short and plump) swapped their spiky hairstyles.
  • Although the new villain is named Maxime Le Mal, Silas Ramsbottom refers to him as "Max Superball" as seen from the closed captions for the trailer. This could either be an editing mistake, since Maxime's villain name is never stated.
  • This is the first Despicable Me film to have licensed music outside the soundtrack.
  • On June 7, 2024, Illumination created a Roblox game to promote the movie called Despicable Me 4 Heist Obby where you try to steal Lenny the Honey Badger, the mascot of Lycée Pas Bon. You can also win free prizes from the game and new game modes are added every Friday up until the movie's release on July 3.[2]
  • This is the second Despicable Me film since the first movie's theatrical trailer to have a traditional trailer style instead of the usual clip styles that the second and third used.

    • Illumination may release another Minions spin-off before or after Despicable Me 5.
    • The music in the grocery store chase scene sounds a little like the Terminator theme.
  • Russell Brand doesn't reprise his role as Dr. Nefario in this film, being replaced by Romesh Ranganathan, likely due to recent controversy with Brand in late 2023.
