Despicable Me Wiki

The Earth is the third planet from the Sun and is the main setting of Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2 and Minions and Despicable Me 3 and minions: the rise of gru and Despicable me 4.


The Earth is mostly blue due to being composed of mostly water. The color of any landmass may vary by its topography. There are deserts, arctic environments, and temperate environments.

The Earth is basically the same as the real world Earth except the landmasses' shapes are different than its real-life counterpart. East Asia, for example, has Korea changed from a peninsula to a strip that is part of the larger Eurasian landmass.

The Earth is only orbited by a single natural satellite, the Moon. The Moon was stolen by Felonius Gru in 2010 but was promptly replaced by accident when Vector's escape pod blasted the celestial body back in orbit.


The Despicable Me Earth shares a majority of major locations of the real-world Earth.
