Since its release at June 10, 2013, there's only one minion in Minion Rush, Dave, which makes what players differ from each other is the costume they use.

Carl's firefighter outfit appears as a playable costume, Bee-do Minion; but, as the minion is still Dave, so the minion costume still retains two-eyed, instead of one-eyed in original deign.

At March 23 in 2015, however, Gameloft Company, the developer of Minion Rush, announced that Carl would become the second minion that is available in the game. Then, at 25th, Carl minion was released and be available to purchase since 2.7.1 version of the game along with the new location Eduardo's House update. He costs $19.99, and after the purchase, players are allowed to revive once by costing 5000 bananas, and their minion will change from Dave to Carl or vice versa. Players can also upgrade Carl to get permanent despicable multiplier increase.

In the game, Carl can't make any items last longer, but if the player has picked up an item before revival, the item last span will inherit from the previous costume while the following items won't. His acceleration is also faster than Dave during the run.

Since the update until the 2.8.1 update (May 6, 2015), Dave was replaced by Carl on the Minion Rush icon. In addition, Dave and Carl appear together in the icon in 3.1.0 update.

Minions Paradise

Bee-do minions paradise

Carl in Minions Paradise

Carl is also a playable character in Minions Paradise, as Bee-do.

By unlocking enough quests from Celebration Station, he will appear on some of the new appearing quests; once they are completed, Bee-do can be unlocked - he floats in the sea and then arrives the beach near Phil's Bar. He has some quests which needs help from Phil, and he sits at one of the seats of the bar. New stories of new quests can be unlocked by Celebration as well; before a new story is introduced/unlocked, he walks around the island like a normal minion and can be called for distractivities or making resources.

However, he can't be leveled up by tokens, just like French Maid.
