His appearance could be described as tall, skinny, with very bushy hair. He is very laid-back and never seems to get distressed at anything.

Plot

Minions

When Scarlet and the Minions arrive in her castle from Villain-Con, Herb gives his wife a love letter and says it was given from the bird, but when he reads the content for Scarlet, he says it's written by himself. Feeling pleased, Scarlet says that she would like to dig out William Shakespeare to show him "what true writing is".

After Scarlet explains her wish to get Queen Elizabeth II's crown, Herb gives the Minions gear so they can do their mission easier. Later, the minions are in a cozy room, about to sleep, and Scarlet tells them a bedtime story, while Herb runs out happily for cookies and milk.

Also, after the Minions were trapped in a dungeon by Scarlet, he was there and the three minions easily recognizes him as Herb but he claims his name as “Blerb". He then put the trio on torture equipments but they don't get hurt at all. Then, they even begin to fool around and start taking pictures. He then reveals that he was Herb all along when exiting the room, leaving Kevin, Stuart, and Bob, heading to his wife to help with her dress for the coronation ceremony.

During the coronation, a chandelier falls directly onto Scarlet, causing him to scream and try to lift up the chandelier to save her, only to reveal that she was alive thanks to her coronation dress. After the capture of Stuart and Bob, Herb aids Scarlet in setting up explosives around them; however, Kevin, who becomes a giant, saves them, so Scarlet decides to fight him and asks Herb to hold Bob's teddy bear. At last, Scarlet is defeated and she tries to escape and takes Herb with her, but they are stopped by Kevin, and they disappear after an explosion in the air.

Herb and Scarlet get frozen by Gru after trying to escape with the royal crown. He gets sent to jail along with his wife, but they break out a year in. Their whereabouts remain unknown.[1]

Trivia

  • He gave nicknames to Kevin, Stuart and Bob while giving them gear for their mission in stealing the crown of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Unlike Scarlet, he has never shown any anger towards the Minions.
  • Herb also doesn't seem to be serious either, such as when he was suppose to torture the Minions but ended up goofing off with them instead.
