- When a Minion davens, does he need to Daven with another Minion?
- Can a Minon daven with a Mignon Minion Minyan, or must it be with a large Minion Minyan?

From this article:
A slave may not be counted for a minyan (SA OC 55:4), nor may one who is half-freedman and half-slave (MB 55:3).
Minions are slaves. They may daven with another minyan that has at least 10 qualifiying Jewish men. But, they cannot be counted as part of a minyan, regardless of how many of them are there. It is a given that a minyan of only minions couldn't exist, either.
The Victorian poet Gerard Manley Hopkins answers this question in his 1877 masterpiece The Windhover, a poem about making it to the hashkama minyan for shacharis:
I CAUGHT this morning morning’s minion, king-
dom of daylight’s dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, in his riding
Of the rolling level underneath him steady air, and striding
High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing
In his ecstasy!
This suggests that a minion (here symbolized by a falcon) only needs itself to daven to H'.
This should answer your question. Unless, of course, you are asking about partnership minions. These need to have a second, female minion with them in order to daven.
