Despicable Me Wiki

Illumination's Villain-Con Minion Blast is a moving walkway shooting attraction at Universal Studios Florida. The attraction takes guests to Villain-Con, the largest criminal gathering anywhere, where they put their villainous skills to the test to see if they have what it takes to become the newest member of the Vicious 6 from Minions: The Rise of Gru. It also features the villains from the other films of the franchise, Scarlet Overkill from Minions, Vector from Despicable Me, El Macho from Despicable Me 2 and Balthazar Bratt from Despicable Me 3. It opened on August 11, 2023 alongside the new Minion Land area.

Minions dressed as the villains: Tim as Vector, Lionel as Balthazar Bratt, Pedro as Scarlet Overkill and Jorge as Clive.


In the queue, the guests are able to walk through Villain-Con, where they see things from may famous villains, including the Vicious 6. There, they get to pick up an E-Liminator X to use on the attraction.


When on the ride, the guests walk onto the moving walkway. On the walkway, they start using their E-Liminator X to shoot at targets which give them points.

When starting on the walkway, the guests first go through Gru's lab, where they encounter some Minions and get to shoot several kinds of boxes like TNT boxes. They then next go through the Bank of Evil, where they encounter Stronghold driving his vehicle, and would to shoot his flying robots. Next, they encounter Nunchuck in her flying vehicle. Then they next go through an underwater tank where they encounter Jean Clawed in his robotic crab, where they get to shoot his robot crabs. Then they next go through a roller coaster-like roller skating rink where they encounter Svengeance and get to shoot his flying drones. Then they encounter Belle Bottom on a disco stage.

After that, the guests encounter the other villains from the other Despicable Me films. Balthazar Bratt shows up in his giant Evil Bratt Robot, where they guests would shoot at it and his action figures of the Bratt Pack. When giving Bratt's robot damage, it causes Bratt to defeated. El Macho then shows up next flying on a flying vehicle. He then drinks the PX-41 serum, causing him to transform into his giant, purple, furry monster form and the guests get to shoot at his vehicle. When damaging El Macho's vehicle, it gets him defeated. Vector then shows up next, flying in his airship, carrying the SR-6, and the guests must shoot at his flying robots. When defeating Vector, the shrink ray shoots up into the sky, and the moon falls down onto the ground, hitting Vector's airship, and starts rolling away with Vector in his airship on it. Scarlet Overkill then shows up next, flying with her rocket dress, and starts using her weapons to shoot at the guests, and the guests must shoot them. When damaging Scarlet's rocket dress, it causes her to get defeated.

When reaching the end of the walkway, the guests would see their score they got, and Belle Bottom and the rest of the Vicious 6 tell them they'll have a chance of joining them.

After getting off the walkway, they guests would put away their E-Liminator X before they leave the attraction.


  • Many of the things villains do in the attraction are exactly the same things they've done each of the Despicable Me movies.
    • Scarlet Overkill flies with her rocket dress and shoots with its weapons, just like when she attacked Kevin when he was gigantic in Minions.
    • Vector flies around in his airship carrying the SR-6 to use it, just like when he was playing with it in Despicable Me. Also like in the movie, he gets hit by the moon as it rolls around with him on it.
    • El Macho drinks the PX-41 serum and transforms himself into a giant, purple, furry monster form of himself, just he did in Despicable Me 2.
    • Balthazar Bratt controls his giant Evil Bratt Robot to use to attack, just he used it to attack Hollywood in Despicable Me 3.
