Minion is a sapient fish-like creature enclosed in a water-filled ape-like robot body. He acts as Megamind's loyal assistant in his evil schemes. Minion was sent to Earth by Megamind's parents during their homeworld's destruction, in the same escape pod as Megamind himself, and was his only company as a child. It isn't known if his species is native to the same planet as Megamind's. If that is the case, it is likely that he too is the last member of his race.
