|“||I shall name him... Mini-Me!||„|
|~ Dr. Evil|
Mini-Me (sometimes spelled Mini-Me) is a major character of the Austin Powers film series.
He is the secondary antagonist in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and a supporting protagonist in Austin Powers: Goldmember.
He was portrayed by the late Verne Troyer.
Since Dr. Evil was cryogenically frozen in his escape rocket as part of his plan to evade capture by his nemesis Austin Powers, his cohorts in his evil organization began a program to replicate him.
In the second movie, Mini-Me made his debut. He then joins Dr. Evil when they head to the Moon and attacks Austin Powers, only to get ejected into outer space.
In the third movie, Dr. Evil's real son Scott Evil actually started becoming evil and than earned his place as Dr. Evil's favorite. Mini-me felt so left out by Dr. Evil and left and joined Austin Powers and became and mini version of him. In the end, Dr. Evil ended up reforming and became good friends with him again, while Scott, who is disappointed in his father, refused to reform and still hold a resentful grudge towards Mini-me.
- The late Verne Troyer once said that he was open to return in Austin Powers 4 as Mini-Me and that Mini-Me would reveal an ability to speak after his voiceless appearances in The Spy Who Shagged Me and Goldmember. Unfortunately, given Troyer's passing in 2018, this is no longer possible and Mini-Me will most likely not be included in a potential fourth film.
