Minion Rush (as an item)
The Moon is Earth's natural satellite.
The first moon landing happened in 1969. Felonius Gru watched this historic moment with his mother and was inspired by the landing to go to outer space.
Gru, along with Dr. Nefario, had formulated a plan to steal the Moon years before the supervillain adopts Margo, Edith, and Agnes. When Vector, a supervillain rival, steals the Pyramid of Giza, Gru reveals the devious plan that had been formulated for several years. Gru steals the Moon with the shrink ray, which comically stops tidal waves for surfers and reverts a werewolf to normal. But Gru is forced to give it to Vector in exchange for the girls who are kidnapped by him. However, Vector kept both the Moon and the girls, causing Gru to storm his lair. Vector, shocked to see Gru break through all his defenses, attempts to escape in an escape pod.
At the same time, the Moon begins to expand, but Gru manages to get Margo, Edith and Agnes out of the ship. The Moon expands extremely rapidly, destroying Vector's escape pod and leaving Vector trapped on the moon (along with a Minion who drank the anti-gravity serum).
