Although they’re twins, it’s not hard to tell them apart since Dru is has flowy blonde hair that Gru can only achieve through wigs. Oh, and that Dru is extremely rich and is living the lush life while Gru is without a job.

His family tree branches out to reveal that most of them were super villains, and that he can’t escape that fate because it’s in his blood. Of course, Gru declines but agrees to go on one heist. This being done wearing a stretchy villain suit, which matches with his twin.
