The Fart Gun is a weapon Dr. Nefario created. This weapon's gas knocks its targets out when inhaled.


Dr. Nefario, about to shoot El Macho with the fart gun.

It looked like a metallic rifle with a canister on top holding blue liquid and an object like a shower head attached to the end. This distributes brown gas which can travel for about a metre and a half before dissipating. When fired it sounds like someone farting. This weapon is also used as a respectful salute tool, such as the 21-fart gun salute.


Despicable Me

Dr. Nefario fired this once, aiming for a minion (possibly Kevin), whom sniffed it and passed out. As Dr. Nefario put it away, saying "Yes. I was wondering, under what circumstances would we use this?".

Despicable Me 2

In Despicable Me 2, the weapon is used again. It is used by the Minions for a 21-Fart Gun salute in honor of Dr. Nefario's departure for a new employment offer. The second time, the Fart Gun is used by Dr. Nefario to completely incapacitate the mutated El Macho.

Appearances in Other Media

Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem

The fart gun is used as a threat to the minions in Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem. Somehow, the fart gun's scent is replaced with that of bananas.

Minion Rush

In Despicable Me: Minion Rush, sometimes two minions can be found on the side of the track playing with the Fart Gun. If your minion runs into them, the screen will be momentarily covered in green gas. A Despicable Bonus will be awarded to the player's Minion who will automatically knock a Minion playing with the Fart Gun.

In the Jelly Lab Update, the Fart Gun's effects have been been strengthened. When the player runs through its gas, the entire screen will be covered in liquid, greatly blinding the player's view. This can be dangerous in some areas, as the player won't be able to see oncoming obstacles in his way, usually resulting in colliding into one. Also in this update, Minions will spawn and use the Fart Gun in Vector's Fortress

In Minion Race update, Fart Gun is also used as a gadget. It is a two-star defense weapon, by using it, there are a few brown fogs staying at where the minion ran through; if other minion run through it, the scenery is also mask and the speed of running also decreases until the fog disappears.


The fart gun is sold under the label "Fart Blaster", as a Toys R Us exclusive, though some have been sold in a toy store at Universal Studios Citywalk and on Amazon.[1]


  • At first, Gru asked for a "dart gun", but Dr. Nefario thought he said "fart gun" so he made one.
