The Lifeguard Minion Costume is a playable character in Minion Rush. It costs 50 costume cards and 1 coin to unlock or can be won in occasional bundle offers in the Shop.


  • The Minion's original coin price was 1000, but the game makers changed it to 1 coin to help all players unlock it easier.
  • The costume's powers are second best to this category, the best so far being Knight's (300% more Bananas), and the third best is Santa Jerry (100% more).
  • Currently, Lifeguard cards can be found in the Special Mission pods and the time-limited missions that follow the Special Missions.
  • The costume was originally available for iOS devices only in the game version 2.4.1 on November 23, 2014.
  • Lifeguard's original price was $9.99 (US Dollars), however the costume was also found in 2,200 Tokens within a glitch in the previous version.
  • During 2015-2018 the costume was extremely rare and players from around the world demanded the costume to come back, but Gameloft could not bring it back due to certain legacy rights.
  • Lifeguard's did not have a certain power in the previous version and no updates either.
  • Its previous name was (LIFEGUARD)RED, but it is now referred as the shorter name in the menu.
  • All the profit gained from this costume was used towards finding a cure for AIDS.
