​El Macho's Lair is a playable level in Minion Rush. It is the third available location in the game. In update 2.0.1., it is the fifth area in the Jelly Lab. 


This area, hence the name, is based off the real El Macho's Lair in Despicable Me 2. All Minions here are replaced with Evil Minions, however, they don't act much different from the regular minions.

Obstacles here include, burning torches that must be rolled under, large and short totem poles, walls blocking one path, Evil Minions rolling in wheel-shaped cages, statues that spout fire across the entire path, large circular saws, magnets whose magnetic field pushes the player's Minion in the particular direction it is pointing (usually encountered around the circular saws), split paths, slides, and more.

El Macho will appear as a boss here randomly once a goal given to defeat him is given. He can be defeated simply be tossing Pollito back at him. There is an area with purple walls/liquid and screenshots of Minion Beach from the movie, that features many Bananas. Banana Vacuums are in this area which allow the player to collect these many Bananas. The music will also change once the player enters this area and will continue until he exits.


  • If the player loses and restarts here, his Minion can be seen activating the code to enter El Macho's Lair before becoming playable. 
  • Scenes from the movie can be found being played in certain areas. 
  • The music of the secret area of this location is also used in the prop Minion Glider.


Before the Jelly Lab update, there's a featured soundtrack played as background music in the home page in El Macho's Lair.

As mentioned above, there is also a music for the secret area.
