The Magician Minion Costume is a playable character in Minion Rush. It costs 60 costume cards and 10 coins to unlock or can be bought in occasional bundle offers in the Shop.


The Magician Minion Costume wears a white magician costume with a black cape, a black top hat and a red and yellow tie.


  • The costume's original coin price was 1,000, but the game makers changed it to 10 coins to help all players unlock it faster.
  • Magician's old power (in the previous version) was additional Bananas in every run. It used to collect 500% times more bananas than normal, making it the best costume for Banana events.
  • This costume is inspired by a plot in Despicable Me 2. Two minions dressed as magicians appear during Agnes' birthday party, where they attempt to perform a trick with Edith and a balloon. Then they try to play a trick with a chainsaw before being shooed off by Margo.
  • It is one of the original costumes released in v1.0.0 version on June 10, 2013.
  • Its skills changed upon the release of the game update v.6.5.0 (formerly shorter penalty in Avoid Missions, currently more Despicable Actions in Avoid Missions). Currently, a task that this costume's skills are required is performing DA's while avoiding collecting bananas and this costume's powers may seem to be a lot better than Lab Coat's, but avoiding bananas missions are extremely hard to complete. The old skills (shorter penalty) that were offered in the late jelly lab versions were much more helpful. As a matter of fact, until update v.6.4.0 there were no avoid missions at all, making this costume's powers useless. The game makers probably thought that giving shorter penalty in any costume made the avoid missions too easy even without any boost on running for time in this case.
