** A poster at a studio where the Minions are auditioning at is called "Sing!" Not exactly the same as [[WesternAnimation/{{Sing}} Illumination's last film with this title.]]


* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Bratt listens to the hits from the eighties while committing crimes. [[Music/MichaelJackson Bad]], [[Music/{{Madonna}} Into the Groove]], [[Music/{{Aha}} Take on Me]], [[Music/DireStraits Money for Nothing]] and [[Music/VanHalen Jump]] all make appearances.

* ToughActToFollow: The film has to live up to the expectations set by its predecessors. The backlash from ''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}'' can't have helped, either.


** One of the billboards in Hollywood is advertising a film called "''{{WesternAnimation/Soul}}''".

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Could Valerie Da Vinci be a disguise of Balthazar Bratt? Like Bratt, she dresses in shoulder pads and wears purple, and given Bratt's acting abilites, it wouldn't be hard to imagine he could pull this off. This would also clear up the confusion of how Bratt learned Gru was fired from the AVL, as WebVideo/CinemaSins pointed out.

* MoralEventHorizon: Bathazar Bratt was already a contemptible psychopath with no remorse for any of his horrid actions ([[EvilIsPetty all because of his show being cancelled and his popularity being decimated]]), but he most definitely crosses the line when he [[spoiler:not only kidnaps the girls and traps them inside his giant robot, but he "releases" them by placing them on the edge of a skyscraper]]. And if that wasn't enough, Bratt later attempts to [[spoiler:''burn unconscious Gru alive with his robot's laser'' and most certainly would've killed him had Dru not destroyed the robot's generator]]. Not to mention the fact that [[spoiler:there were still ''people'' in Hollywood, people that could easily have been killed if Bratt had succeeded in bubble-gumming the city and sending it into space.]]

* EsotericHappyEnding: [[spoiler:Due to defeating Bratt, Gru and Lucy are reinstated in the AVL. The former has reconciled with the Minions and Dru; the latter has been accepted as a mother figure by the girls. However, Dru and the Minions decide to continue doing villainy, in the same home no less, meaning that the Gru family are technically enemies now. This trope is downplayed however, seeing that Dru is still ''living'' with the family and Gru and Lucy treat his antics more as an amusing annoyance than a shocking betrayal.]]

* {{Sequelitis}}: Downplayed; it's considered weaker than the previous films, but still enjoyable nonetheless.


* EvilIsCool: Balthazar Bratt, due to his CrazyAwesome tendencies and for being played by Trey Parker.

** Balthazar Bratt is practically made of this trope, when he's not being CrazyAwesome.


* CrazyAwesome: Balthazar Bratt. Among other things, he fights by break-dancing and his arsenal includes exploding Rubik's cubes!


*** Adding to that, Edith was seen as a [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter waste of character potential]], especially how she (and her sisters) were OutOfFocus in the previous movie. In this movie, she gets more characterization and screen-time equal to that of her sisters.

* CriticalDissonance: While the film received less favorable reviews than its predecessors, it was able to become the franchise's second highest-grossing film worldwide and the first in the main series to gross more than $1 billion overall. It was only beaten out by '''Minions''' of all entries.

* CounterpartComparison: The film features a character [[NostalgiaFilter with a passion for the 80s]] who challenges his enemy [[spoiler: and later is challenged by said enemy]] to a dance battle. Are we talking about Balthazar Bratt or [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Star-Lord]]?


* AwesomeMusic: Bratt listens to the hits from the eighties while committing crimes. [[Music/MichaelJackson Bad]], [[Music/{{Madonna}} Into the Groove]], [[Music/{{Aha}} Take on Me]], [[Music/DireStraits Money for Nothing]] and [[Music/VanHalen Jump]] all make appearances.
