Jerry is one of the Minions.


Jerry is a short and plump Minion with spiky hair and two eyes.


Jerry is very sensitive as seen when Kevin teases him for being a coward. He is also easily got scared when he hear any strange noises like when he heard a noise which is only a cat looking out throught the garbage. He loves to play his guitar as seen at the beach.


Despicable Me 2

Jerry along with the minions are having a large ice cream party. He and Kevin are then asked by Gru to watch the girls and put them to sleep.

After Jerry sings them a lullaby, they decide to play golf. The ball is planted on Jerry's mouth, but instead of hitting the ball, Kevin plans to hit Jerry on the head. However, their game is interrupted by a strange noise. Kevin and a terrified Jerry go outside to see what is causing the noise, but it's just a cat looking through their garbage can. Kevin laughs at Jerry for being so scared, which caused Jerry to start a fight with him. A light shining from above interrupts their fight. Kevin then proceeded to release Jerry, which caused him to float up into the light.

Some time later, he is seen at the beach (which is actually a part of Eduardo's Lab) playing his guitar.

In the final battle of the movie, Jerry, who was turned into an Evil Minion, enters a rocket that was going to target New York, but is turned back into a normal Minion and sings I Swear with Kevin, Stuart and Dave.
