Despicable Me Wiki

Mike (or Michael or Mikey) is one of the Minions.


Mike has two eyes and combed hair.


Mike is sweet and nice to people. He also has an interest for kittens. His traits and characteristics are somewhat similar to ​Dave's. He is an obedient worker and very hardworking.


Mike is a Minion who works in the mail room with Ken. Unfortunately, Ken is slacking off and playing video games, but when he threw a package containing expired PX-41 serum and jams a tube, Mike is forced to take it out himself. As he is reaching it, he is splashed with the serum causing him to turn into an Evil Minion. Fortunately he changes back but is not fully normal as he still has purple hair like an Evil Minion. As they both got back to work, Ken notices that the mail stopped, and sees Mike turn into an Evil Minion and eat all the packages. Ken took advantage of this to play his video game while Mike is eating. Continuing to change back, Ken laughs while watching Mike.

A box of kittens are approaching Mike, almost being eaten. Ken saves the kittens while running from Mike. Climbing to the top of a pile of packages, Ken reaches the top with nowhere to run. Luckily, Mike changes back then falls. When Ken ran to Mike with the kittens, Mike admired the kittens, but coughs out all of the serum, turning back to normal for good, only for the kittens to mutate and attack Mike and Ken.



  • Mike is the only Minion who is turned into an Evil Minion outside of the second film.
  • He doesn't make any appearances in the Despicable Me films, and it's also unclear whether he is eaten by the mutated kittens or not, however he appears in The Secret Life of Kyle, so it looks like he servived.
    • If he was eaten, he is one of the only Minions to die.
    • He mostly likely survived as there were two identical minions who defected with Mel, with one possibly being Mike and the other being Mark.
  • It is possible that Mike is allergic to kittens as he sneezed when close to them.
  • Mike is one of the very few minions who were not kidnapped and turned evil being the other in Despicable Me 2.
  • As an Evil Minion, he is the only one to wear his original uniform as the other Evil Minions got their new uniforms after being changed
  • He is the only Minion that, as an Evil Minion, is cured from the PX-41 serum other than the antidote, as the serum is expired and he sneezed it out.
  • Mike is mentioned in the beginning of the film Minions.
  • He looks just like Dave.
