Despicable Me Wiki

The Great Pyramid of Giza (Arabic: الهرم الأكبر بالجيزة) is a significant landmark of Egypt that was stolen by Vector.


Despicable Me[]

Vector managed to quietly steal the Great Pyramid from its foundations. To make sure no one noticed, he replaced it with an inflatable replica. Vector then managed to put the Pyramid in his backyard. Vector then paints the Pyramid blue and white to camouflage itself with the sky so that it cannot be spotted easily.

Eventually, a young boy named Justin accidentally fell onto the replica, showcasing the villain's deed. This theft would cause another villain, Felonius Gru, to put into action his long-time plans to steal the Moon, which he eventually successfully does, dwarfing Vector's Pyramid heist and becoming the No. 1 Supervillain.


It's revealed in the film Minions that the minions built the pyramid in 2500 BC. At first, the pyramid was built upside down, so that the pointed part was facing down, but after a minion did a "ship christening" for the pyramid with a bottle of wine, it fell over and landed right-side up, crushing the Pharaoh and his slaves in the process.

The Pyramid appears in the secret area of The Pyramids in Minion Rush.



  • It is unknown what happened to the Pyramid after the events of Despicable Me, but it is assumed that it has since been moved to its original location and painted back into its original design.
