The Minion Glider is a power-up that appears in Despicable Me: Minion Rush. It was added to the game in update 2.8.1. as part of the new Spring Is Back! special mission, which takes place in the Residential Area.
When this prop is activated, three will appear randomly during the run, replacing all the other power-ups. When ran into, the player will be attached to a glider being dragged by a blue car. They must simply tap the screen to glide upwards, allowing them to catch several Bananas and special items, such as umbrellas, flowers, or butterflies during the mission. To reach lower items, they can simply not tap the screen at all, allowing them to glide downwards. Special Bananas, which is much bigger than normal one and is equal 10 bananas, also appear while gliding that when collected, increase the player's Despicable Multiplier.
Minion Gliders can be obtained by paying 20,000 bananas or tokens (depending by many variables of the player), or winning them from completed levels or prize presents.
- Minion Glider is similar to Lucy's Car in Despicable Me 2, and the usage is inspired by the dragging scene of Stuart.
- The player's Minion will make the same sound as when firing from the Minion Launcher when they access the Minion Glider. And the music is as same as the one in El Macho's Lair.
- Unlike other special mission items such as Snowboards, Skateboards, and BMX Bikes, less items can be collected before the time is out.
- If a Minion Glider is missed while running, it will respawn elsewhere in the same run, and so will all usable props after the mission Extreme Sports at June 2015.
