Minions Add-on

Minions are yellow, small, cylindrical creatures which are most known for their appearance in the Minions movie. This addon adds the minions (evil ones included) and Gru to Minecraft PE. The minions are very cute and can be used for multiple things. For example, you can tame them, have them fight for you or you can send them away on missions such as hunting or to go fishing.

Creator: Gona, Twitter Account
Updated: 18 May, 2017 (read changelog)


Minions can be found spawning in the Nether (because they replace zombie pigmen). You can also spawn them using the zombie pigman spawn egg.

To tame a minion you will first need to find a big one. Then feed it some bananas (carrots) until it likes you. Tame chance: 33%. If you find a baby minion you can feed it some bananas too to accelerate its growing process.

  • iOS / Android: Long press on the minion with a banana (carrot) and press Tame
  • Windows 10: Right-click on a minion with a banana (carrot)

A tamed minion will by default follow its master. You can command it to sit/stand (similar to a wolf) or even tie it to a fence post if you get tired of it.


You can give a tamed minion a couple of different jobs by giving it any of the following tools.

  • Sword = Hunt animals
  • Axe = Chop down trees
  • Pickaxe = Mine
  • Hoe = Harvest
  • Shovel = Dig
  • Fishing rod = Fishing

It will take anywhere between 1 – 5 minutes for a minion to return to you after it has been given a task. You can then press on the button to retrieve the items which it collected. In this case, I had asked it go fishing, so it dropped some fish.


Minions are no cowards. If you get attacked by a mob your tamed minion will be quick to help you. And it will also attack anything which you attack.

Evil Minion

There are a few different ways that an evil minion can spawn. It replaces the skeleton so it does spawn randomly in your worlds. You can transform an ordinary (yellow) minion into an evil one a vice versa.

  • Transform wild minion into an evil minion by throwing a poisonous potion at it
  • Transform an evil minion into a wild minion by throwing a potion of weakness at it

Also, if a normal (yellow) minion is killed by an evil minion then it will turn into its adversary.

Felonius Gru

Gru is one of the main characters plays a big role in the Despicable Me movies and has a minor part in the Minions movie. He was previously one of the most dangerous super villains but has since retired and become a consultant for the Anti-Villain League.

In this add-on he’s friendly towards players and can be tamed with a bow. Once tamed he will protect his owner against dangers and often so by using his levitation ray weapon.

  54. Alchemist says:

    Do they actually go and do it? Or do they just disappear and come back with the stuff to make you feel good, but don’t actually go and do it.

    • captainfour4 says:

      They just disappear and come back with the stuff to make you feel good, but don’t actually go and do it. It’s because Addons don’t have that possibility yet.

  89. Ethan says:

    Can you make a yoshi add-on? I would love to see yarn yoshis replace sheep! I would also love to ride them and throw explosive eggs while yoshi eats the enemy mobs!

    • Ethan says:

      The reason why I want yarn yoshi’s to replace sheep is because I want them to come in many colors. I would also like to see Kamek replace witches, and Baby Bowser replace the wither boss! I would also like for the yarn yoshi’s to lay yarn balls, which would replace snow balls. If yarn balls replace snow balls, I want the snow blocks and snow layers to be retextured to look like yarn.

    • Anonymous says:

      You have to feed the yellow minions bananas to tame them, and the purple minions are hostile and not tameable though you can convert them into normal minions again with the same method used to cure zombified villagers, if you hold a banana in your hand and look at a yellow minion it should show a tame button that you can press to take them.

      You also can only tame adult minions so make sure you feeding the ones that have the max size

    Very similar to the helper addon

    • XxMasrGLaDOS1xX says:

      Also, for anyone wondering, only wooden tools work.
      At least I think it was wood…
      Either wood or iron.

    • Anonymous says:

      The person who made this addon is the same person who made the helper addon, and their a bit different with the stats and stuff though I think their both inspired similarly

    Just in time for the third movie 🙂

  112. DerpyDerp says:

    I Think you should remove Gru because apparently you should be Gru so maybe try to retexture any armor, and also just try to make the other hostile mobs, the villain

  113. Anonymous says:

    What mob does Gru replace? You didint really specify and it’s really useful knowing that kinda stuff for addons cause then you can tell if there any other addons that you have that replace the same mob and will collide with this one messing up the textures and mob behaviors

    Stupid question..first time playing on windows 10 (usually use xbox). I downloaded this addon for my daughter. We cant figure out what key to use to spawn them. We have the minion spawn egg in the inventory. We can “drop” it, or its in our hand and we can “hit” with it. What can we do to “throw” it or use it? Pressing the action key just mines the block in crosshairs. Hope that makes sense. TIA!

    This one is a little better because the helper addon broke; the thing I dont like is that it just disappears so the minion is actually not mining, fishing, etc. WHY DO I ALWAYS USE FULL SENTENCES?
