Hey Dave, Hey!
— Jerry to Dave


Jerry is one of the Minions. A minion by the same name, having a different appearance, appears in the first film.


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 spooked when he hear any strange noises like when he heard a noise which is only a cat looking out through the garbage. He loves to play his guitar as seen at the beach.

Jerry along with the minions are having a large ice cream party. He and Kevin have been given a job from 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 frightened Jerry go outside to see what was making the racket, but it's just a cat looking through their garbage can. Kevin teases Jerry for getting so spooked over nothing, 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.

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

Minion Rush

  • When Jerry jumps over obstacles in Minion Rush, he sometimes jumps with wide arms and closed eyes. His move was previously designed as jumping in the same direction and sometimes opposite.
  • Jerry's original coin price was 800, but the game makers changed it to 1 coin to help all players unlock it easier.
  • In the previous version, Jerry was a separate character in the game and had a unique spot in the Shop. Carl, Jerry and Mel didn't have costumes like Dave did but they had hats. Now all the characters have been unified under the Wardrobe section.
  • Jerry's old power (in the previous version) was additional time for all Power-Ups. He had no special powers in the jelly lab versions. The minion's description used to be If one Minion fails while running, you can switch to another one! Skilled & smart, when Jerry uses Power-Ups, they last longer than Dave's.
  • Since abilities came in the game, all tasks that required picking up power-ups a number of times were changed into using their respective abilities a number of times. As a result, Jerry's utility, as well as all costumes that increase chances of certain power-up pick-ups became redundant. Instead, new costumes appear, giving shorter ability-charge.
