Despicable Me Wiki

Lance is one of the Minions.


Lance is a small one-eyed minion with slanted spiky hair. (formerly)


Lance is a minion with a keen eye for detail and a love for pitching in. He values cleanliness and order - Particularly around Gru's house. Lance's strong eye allows him to be laser-focused any task at hand, but can sometimes come at risk of seeing the bigger picture.


Despicable Me 2[]

When Tom is kidnapped by Dr. Nefario while he is vacuuming the carpeted floor, Lance is the minion with the cloth tied on his head, carrying a bucket of cleaning supplies. He appears after Tom is gone, and he notices that the vacuum cleaner is left on, the room is in a mess and the door is open. Curious, he looks outside through the door, but since there is no one there he closes the door; soon, he opens it again to clean the doorknob.

Lance is also the minion that is placing some newspapers and magazines on a table in front of where Gru sat. Gru is looking through some pictures of El Macho on his laptop. Halfway through the pictures, his laptop has lost internet connection. He called out for Kevin several times to fix it but there is no response. Annoyed, Gru asks Lance where Kevin is. Lance just shrugs, blows a raspberry and walks away not knowing that Kevin is kidnapped, as he is one of the only few minions who has not been kidnapped and turned evil.

At Gru and Lucy's wedding, he was the DJ.
