Megamind: The Button of Doom is a 2011 animated short film released on DVD/Blu-ray with Megamind on February 25, 2011, starring Will Ferrell and David Cross.[1] It also made its television premiere on Nickelodeon on February 26, 2011.



For their first day on the job as the new protectors of Metro City, Megamind (Will Ferrell) and Minion (David Cross) are selling off the gadgets from their evil lair. All their items get sold (except for a Death Ray). As for the Dehydrating Gun, it gets sold to a boy named Damien, who then uses on his mother and turns her into a cube. Megamind tells Damien to soak the cube in water to, but unknown to Megamind, Damien decides not to do it, seeing this as an opportunity to revel in his freedom from his mother. Damien then decides to help his friends dehydrate their parents so that they can do whatever they want in Metro City. After the auction is over, Megamind reveals a suit that contains all of Metro Man's powers, which he will wear to protect Metro City.

Minion finds a seemingly harmless button that had also not had been sold. Not knowing what the button does, Megamind pushes the button, and it reveals a robot called the Mega Megamind, which Megamind put his evil self in. The robot thinks that Megamind is Metro Man, and starts attacking him. Megamind fights the robot with his new powers, but is defeated. He and Minion hide in the Invisible Car. Megamind decides that they should live in the car from then on, because he programmed the robot to not stop until the hero (and his assistant) is destroyed. Minion reveals that he still kept the Spiderbot, a robot that Megamind wanted to throw away, suggesting that Megamind should try to be a hero his way rather than try to do the job the way Metro-Man did it. Megamind plans to lure the Mega Megamind to a spot where the Death Ray can shoot. Minion realizes that he cannot activate the Death Ray because the control buttons were broken. He then tries to find a remote, but Megamind does not remember what the remote looks like, so Minion tries all the remotes. Megamind, trying to hide, eventually is found by the Mega Megamind (because Minion accidentally played rock music on the Spiderbot). Minion finally finds the remote and activates the Death Ray. Megamind and the Spiderbot get off the robot using the robot's shooter just before the robot explodes.

The duo then recover the Dehydrating Gun from Damien after catching him and his friends doing some crazy stuff in Downtown as they celebrate dehydrating their parents, and Megamind re-hydrates the parents with a glass of water to ensure that the children will not go unpunished of their actions. The short ends with Megamind and Minion riding off in the Invisible Car as they are called to action with a signal (an obvious parody of the Bat-Signal).
