Despicable Me Wiki

The Pirate Minion Costume is a playable character in Minion Rush. It costs 50 costume cards and 10 coins to unlock or can be won in occasional bundle offers in the Shop.


  • The costume was not avaliable in the Pirates, Ahoy Market so the only way to get his cards before 7.2.0 was through the last 3 stages of the special mission, via daily reward (double reward was needed to unlock him) and rarely through silver prize pods along with Spring costume.
  • Before 7.2.0 update pirate minion card icon was backwards.
  • In version 7.8.0 the Fluffycorn Minion was added with 200% more ability charge per action, and its abillity can be upgraded up to 350% while pirate was up to 180%.
  • It was first added in 7.1.0 update
  • The pirate minion was based on a deleted scene of the Minions film that the minions served a pirate but he was possibly eaten by a shark and was deleted from the film, thus never appearing in the films or shorts.
