This article has not been given a name, as such, the name Herb's Laser Enlarger, is purely conjectural.

Herb's Laser Enlarger is one of the gadgets Herb Overkill owns in the film Minions. Herb refers it as his ''ultimate weapon'' as a nickname and it's his unfinished work.


The gadget locates in the lab in Scarlet's Castle. It is a red sphere with some triggers in it, and there's a door of the room of the gadget. It is also connected to several complicated machines.

The weapon fires laser beams which enlarges entities struck by it. On living beings, the effect can be reverted if the target is hit by an explosion, although this will not kill the target.


Minions enter Herb's Lab and they are about to go into it out of curiosity, Herb stops them and says called it as his ultimate weapon.

Later, during the fight against villains who want to catch him, Kevin activates the ultimate weapon accidentally by pushing a button, flipping a switch, pulling a lever, and blow into a detector; which eventually turns him into a giant.


  • This weapon is effectively the opposite of SR-6.
  • It is unknown how Kevin would’ve shrunk back to normal size if he didn’t swallow the missile that blew up.
