Despicable Me Wiki
That one is Norbert, he's an idiot.
— Narrator

Norbert is one of the Minions that appears in the film Minions. He has one eye and wet combed hair.



Norbert follows his tribe out of the ocean only to realize that he is naked. He runs back into the water and comes back out wearing starfishes on his chest. The narrator then states that he is an idiot. When the Minions see a T. Rex, one of the starfishes falls down.

He is later seen in the credits when the Minions chase after Gru and the banana. Norbert stumbles and finds out that the starfishes slide away again, so he put them back to his chest, and continues running for the banana, though he's the last one.

Despicable Me 4[]

Norbert returns in an advertisment for Minion Evolution of Jerry (Despicable Me 4).


  • He appears with his seaweed-made goggles and crude clothing. It's unclear why he hasn't changed his costume when he's seen in the credits, though it may be possible since he's an idiot or it would be hard to live in various locations the Minions have lived, such as the Minion Ice Cave.
  • It is possible that Norbert appeared in Minions: The Rise of Gru.
