|“||Face it, Gru. Villainy is in your blood!||„|
|~ Dru reminding his brother of his former self.|
Dru Gru is the deuteragonist/anti-villain of Illumination's 8th feature film, Despicable Me 3. He is an amateur supervillain and the twin brother of Felonious Gru.
Just like his twin brother, he was voiced by Steve Carell.
Role in the film
Dru is the twin brother of Gru and is incredibly wealthy. He strives to be a supervillain and to make his father (who sees him as a disappointment) to be proud of him. Despite his wide variety of gadgets, weapons, etc. Dru is a very incompetent supervillain and is rather clumsy and naïve as well, thus prompting his father to ask Gru to teach him. However Dru instead attempts convince Gru to go back to villainy which he succeeds in and Gru begins teaching him how to be a great villain just like their father was.
He also did appear as rather kind and polite towards his brother until he realized his brother was just using him to get his old job back. The two of them have a fight about that Gru leaves in an huff. However after Balthazar Bratt kidnaps Gru's daughters, Dru chips in to help rescue them. The two brothers reconcile before the final battle against Bratt, and Dru almost gets himself killed trying to save Gru from Bratt's giant robot. He also watched Balthazar's show "Evil Bratt" when it was on air.
At the end of the movie, he and the minions steal Gru's ship as part of a family tradition. He most likely goes back to villainy after this.
Dru looks almost identical to his brother. However, there are a few differences, most notably he has a thick full head of blonde hair while Gru is bald. Dru also wears prominently white while Gru wears mostly black.
Unlike Gru, Dru is shown to be a lot more happier and a bit hipper, hyper and full of energy whenever excited, especially when he finally gets to meet Gru. He is also shown to be a bit clumsy, careless, which is why his father refused to teach him how to be a villain and had to turn to his brother for lessons. He often panics and also overacts when he is scared, as well as being uncooperative, disobedient, and childish.
- He is revealed to be a fan of Balthazar Bratt's "Evil Bratt" show, as he once owned an Evil Bratt action figure and had watched the episode that the latter drew his idea from.
