Main Toy Characters
Woody Pride is a 50s pull-string cowboy doll. He is Andy’s favorite toy, and the team leader of the main toys. He is at first jealous of newcomer Buzz, but after spending a night at Sid's house they become staunch friends. In Toy Story 2 Woody is stolen, and meets his costars from the TV show "Woody's Roundup".
Woody is voiced by Tom Hanks in the films, and his brother, Jim Hanks, in most other media.
- Anti-Hero: Type II (He is a Disney... well, Pixar anti hero after all.) This and a bit of Type I in the first film, where his problems are caused by his envy of Buzz, driving to him to accidentally shove him out the window. His motivations up until the climax are largely selfish, as he wants to get back to Andy and only worries about Buzz out of fear the other Toys will shun him unless he brings him back. He gets better in the sequels as he risks life and limb time and again to save his friends. Then again, he still tends to slide down the scale on account of his pride and a tendency to be needlessly callous and mean to his friends (Just look at his attitude towards the gang after they trekked through life threatening obstacles to save him, or his coldness during his first escape from Sunnyside.)
- Ultimately subverted in Toy Story 4 when he completely gives up his selfishness and makes Jessie the new leader of the former Andy's toys wile he and Bo Peep stay at the carnival to rescue other toys so they could have children to play with.
- The Atoner: Just in case you thought he got off a little too easily for his arguably selfish behaviour in the first two movies, the third has him give up his dream of going to college with Andy so that the rest of the toys won't have to be left in the attic, and so that himself and the other toys will be with an owner who would have more fun playing with them.
- Brown Eyes
- Cassandra Truth: In all three films.
- Catch Phrase: Being merch from a TV series, he has several like "Hey, howdy, hey!", "There is a snake in my boot!" or "Somebody poisoned the water hole!". These only sound when somebody pulls his string - the "sentient" Woody rarely or never uses them.
- Celibate Hero: Becomes this in Toy Story 3, due to Bo Peep’s disappearance
- The Chains of Commanding: Shows up a lot in the final film.
- Curtains Match the Window
- Deadpan Snarker: Somewhat present in the first film, dies off in the second and third.
- The Heart
- Heterosexual Life Partners: With Buzz, after the incident at Sid's.
- The Hero
- It's All About Me: Eventually subverted. The first movie has him so jealous of the attention Buzz is getting that he tries to knock him into the space between the table and the wall. The second movie has him refuse to return to Andy's place with the other toys, even after the journey the other toys went through to do get him to do so - admittedly, it was at least in part out of empathy for Jesse. The third, on the other hand, has him come back to Sunnyside to help free his friends, and better yet, has him give up his dream of going to college with Andy to spare the other toys from going to the attic; see also The Atoner.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He can be sarcastic, cynical, and sometimes even a bit selfish, but what he does toward the end of the third movie easily makes up for this; again, see The Atoner.
- Knight in Sour Armor
- Mr. Vice Guy: His Pride and necessity of attention are important plot points in the first film and to a lesser level in the second.
- Nice Hat
- Only Sane Man: Is often placed in this role.
- Platonic Life Partners: With Jessie, emphasized in Toy Story 3.
- Really Seven Hundred Years Old: While the rest of Andy’s toys are obviously younger than him, Woody is revealed in the second film to be a toy from an old TV series, making him roughly 50 years old. This raises lots of questions about his past and how he came to "forget" it.
- Tall, Dark and Snarky
- Team Dad: At the start at least, he's the semi-official leader and most respected of the toys. It's also implied and played with that he's something of a father figure to Andy, who notably has no on-screen father.
- Undying Loyalty: To Andy. Until it's time to say "So long, partner..."
- It's probably logical to assume he will show this to Bonnie as well.
- The Unfavorite / Parental Favoritism: Believed this in the first film after Buzz came on the scene. Third movie actually proved he really was Andy’s favorite toy.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: Faced with this choice in Toy Story 2.
Buzz Lightyear is a plastic action-figure and space toy. He features a working wrist communicator, karate-chop action, blinking laser light, pop up wings, glow in the dark paint, and talks when the buttons on his chest are pushed. When he first came out of his box, he believed he was a real spaceman, and not a toy, but he eventually comes to terms with his role as a toy. In Toy Story 2 Buzz is more down to earth and leads a rescue party to find Woody. As of the sequel, the toys basically view him as the second-in-command.
- The Ace: Kinda.
- Badass Spaniard: When reset into Spanish.
- Blue Eyes
- Captain Ersatz: Of Captain Kirk (William Shatner even sings the ending song for the Buzz Lightyear of Star Command direct-to-video movie).

- He also bears a remarkable similarity to Meteora from The Christmas Toy.
- Captain Space, Defender of Earth!: When met.
- Catch Phrase: "To Infinity... and BEYOND!"
- The Comically Serious: In the first movie, where he still thinks he's a space ranger and delivers hilarious lines like "I'm setting my laser from stun...to kill." and "I don't believe that man's ever been to medical school!" completely seriously.
- Daydream Believer: Until he saw the commercial.
- Drowning My Sorrows: With imaginary tea. Along with Marie-Antoinette and her little sister.
- Famed in Story: He's the newest and most popular toy at the time of the first film (something that became Truth in Television after the film was released).

- Something Else Also Rises / Getting Crap Past the Radar: His wings popping out after seeing Jessie pull a stunt.

- Tomato in the Mirror: Realizing that he really is a toy.
Jessie is a pull-string cowgirl doll, and Woody’s costar on "Woody's Roundup". Her old owner Emily gave her away, and she was put into storage by Al. At the end of Toy Story 2 she returns with Woody to Andy's room, and is implied to hold a torch for Buzz. Jessie is voiced by Joan Cusack.

Rex is a cheap plastic dinosaur toy. He has a huge inferiority complex because of his tiny arms. He constantly tries acting scary, but due to his timid nature, he can never pull it off, and constantly worries about getting replaced with a meaner dinosaur. In Toy Story 2 he is seen obsessing over a Buzz Lightyear video game he can't beat. He is part of Buzz's rescue team, he comes face to face with Zurg, and knocks him down an elevator shaft, this results in Rex gaining some confidence in himself.
He's also a bit of a gamer, as he is seen playing video games in the second and third movies.
Rex is voiced by Wallace Shawn.
- Cowardly Lion
- The Chick: Not really useful to the toys on their quests, but keeps everyone together.
- Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Most likely reason he was included in the first movie. On the other hand, he does not believe it at all, since he's convinced that Andy will reject him the minute he gets another, more expensive dinosaur toy.
- Geek: He's playing a game at the start of the second movie, and his search for a strategy guide becomes a minor plot point.
- Gentle Giant
- Tyrannosaurus Rex: A Deconstruction of the usual portrayal.
- Use Your Head: "But I don't wanna use my head!!"
Hamm is a plastic pink piggy bank. He has a witty sense of humor and is best friends with Mr. Potato Head. He is the second, after Potato Head, to turn against Woody, when he thought he pushed Buzz out the window and doesn't want Woody to get second chance to explain. In Toy Story 2 he is part of Buzz’s rescue team.
Hamm is voiced by John Ratzenberger.
- Actor Allusion: A USPS Priority Mail commercial has Hamm dressed as a mailman, a reference to John Ratzenberger's role as Cliff Clavin.

Slinky Dog is a plastic dog with leather ears, and a Slinky in the center of his body. He is very loyal to Woody, and was risked himself to help the duo into the back of the moving truck. In Toy Story 2 he is part of Buzz’s rescue team.
Slinky was voiced by Jim Varney in the first and second Toy Story movies. Varney died one year after the second movie was released in the US; Blake Clark replaces him as the voice in the third.
- Animal Stereotypes: He's a dog, whose main trait is loyalty.
- Even the Dog Is Ashamed: When the toys think Woody has murdered Buzz out of jealousy.
- Furry Confusion: He is a toy dog, in a series where major characters include an "actual" dog and a toy horse who acts like a dog... yeah, it's a little strange.
- Loyal Animal Companion: Of the Canine variety.
- Number Two: To Woody, especially in the first film.
- The Other Darrin: In Toy Story 3 following the death of his first voice actor.
- Team Pet: Averted, as he is more of a main cast member
- Undying Loyalty: Almost destroyed in the incident mentioned.
Mr. Potato Head is a potato-shaped toy made by Hasbro, whose removable facial features can be stored inside his body. He is short tempered and is the first to turn against Woody, when he thought he had pushed Buzz out the window. For Christmas Andy's sister, Molly, gets a Mrs. Potato Head. In Toy Story 2 Potato Head is part of Buzz’s rescue team. He later saves the lives of three squeeze toy aliens which to his dismay, his wife adopts.
Mr. Potato Head is voiced by Don Rickles.
- Anti-Hero: In Toy Story, he proved to be one of the main reasons preventing Woody and Buzz from returning to Andy, always ready to disbelieve him. In the second and third films, however, he is shown in a much more positive light (albeit still maintaining his short-tempered personality).
- Badass Moustache: Toy Story 2 after he goes off to save Woody.
- Butt Monkey
- Commander Contrarian
- Deadpan Snarker
- Detachment Combat: He's capable of it and thinks this puts him at an advantage when he has to fight. He's just not very good at one-on-one fighting.
- Happily Married: To Mrs. Potato Head.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: More of a Jerkass in the original movie, but mellowed out after being proven wrong about Woody... and getting married.
- Nice Hat: Uses it to pull off an Odd Job style move in Toy Story 2.
- Pulling Themselves Together: Is repeatedly forced to do this throughout the films. In Toy Story 3, both he and his wife are dismantled in the Caterpillar room, and get each other's parts mixed up as they recover.
- Those Two Guys: With Hamm.
Mrs. Potato Head is Mr. Potato Head’s loving wife. Before he goes on his adventure she makes sure he packs (among other things) an extra pair of shoes, and his angry eyes. When he comes back she decides to adopt the three squeeze toy aliens. In Toy Story 3, she loses one of her eyes, which later proves to be quite useful.
Mrs. Potato Head is voiced by Estelle Harris.
- Ascended Extra: She was introduced in 2 as a fairly minor character, but was one of the main characters in 3.
- Blind Seer: In Toy Story 3.
- Chekhov's Gun: Her missing eye in Part 3, proves quite useful to look back at Andy’s house to see that he didn’t really throw them away afterall.
- Closer to Earth

- Happily Married: To Mr. Potato Head.
The Squeeze Toy Aliens are three-eyed rubber squeeze toys first seen in the Pizza Planet claw game. They had been driven somewhat mad, and worshiped the claw which they dreamed would choose them. Three more aliens are found in the Pizza Planet truck in Toy Story 2, and they are taken back to Andy's room and were adopted by the Potato Heads.
- Ascended Extra: They were a One-Scene Wonder in the first film and are now a part of the main cast.

- The Load: The three that are with Woody and Co. are this during much of the escape from Sunny Side.
- Playing Against Type: Patrick Warburton, who voices them in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, is generally known for voicing burlesque manly characters, certainly not helium-breath critters.
- All Animals Are Dogs: Bullseye has the personality of a puppy dog and even makes puppy noises in the third movie.
- Cool Horse
- Loyal Animal Companion: His role in the original TV series. Played straight by the toy version.
- Phrase Catcher: "Ride like the wind, Bullseye!"
- The Speechless
Wheezy is a squeaky toy penguin who wears a red bow-tie. He had his squeaker broken, and at the beginning of Toy Story 2, was found on top of a shelf. At the end of the film, he got a new squeaker, and sings "You've got a Friend in Me"
Wheezy was voiced by Joe Ranft, and had his singing voice provided by Robert Goulet in the second film. Due to a fatal car crash that claimed the life of Joe Ranft in 2005, Wheezy was instead voiced by Charlie Adler in Toy Story 3, and various subsequent spin-offs of the third film
Sarge is the leader of the Green Army Men, in the Bucket-O-Soldiers. His army leads missions for Woody, to tell the toys through a Baby monitor what Andy and Molly have gotten for Birthdays and Christmas. By the time of Toy Story 3 He and his men are one of the few toys under this section that haven't been given away yet. But early on the film they parachute out the window in search of greener pastures.
Sarge is voiced by R. Lee Ermey.
- Casting Gag: R. Lee Ermey was a Marine Corps drill instructor, and gained fame playing Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: Averted, with Ermey Playing Against Type.
- Though he does briefly act like this when he thought Woody pushed Buzz out the window. "WHERE IS YOUR HONOR, DIRTBAG?!"
- A Father to His Men
- It Has Been an Honor: Said to Woody at the beginning of Toy Story 3.
- No One Gets Left Behind: From the first film, where Andy's mom steps on the minesweeper by accident. Sarge carries him to "cover" in the potted plant where their medic takes a look at him.
- Sacrificial Lambs: At the beginning of Toy Story 3, he and a few of his men seem to be the only ones left. Based on one of their lines, "When the trash bags come out, we army men are the first to go," may have something to do with it...
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here: At the beginning of the third movie, Sarge and his two remaining men parachute out the window, fearing that they are destined for the trash. They eventually land at Sunnyside Daycare, after Ken & Barbie have turned it around.
Andy's Other Toys
Bo Peep is a porcelain doll, based on the eponymous nursery rhyme, who tends to three lambs, whom she refers to as her "lambies. She has a romantic interest in Woody and is always a nice, sunny lady. She often acts as the voice of reason in Andy's Room.
Bo Peep is voiced by Annie Potts.
- Blue Eyes
- Closer to Earth
- Distressed Damsel: In Andy's games, so Woody could save her.
- Hair of Gold: When she's not wearing the bonnet.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Bo Peep is Janine Melnitz!
- Love Interest: To Woody and her primary role in the story (in parts 1 and 2).
- Necktie Leash: Subversion. Woody does wear a neckerchief, but Bo uses her shepherd's crook to hook Woody close to her instead.
- Only Sane Woman
- Proper Lady - Yamato Nadeshiko: She may be soft and sweet, but notice how she's the one who always hooks Woody with her shepherd's crook and aggressively (yet innocently) flirts with him.
- Put on a Bus: Bo Peep doesn't appear in Toy Story 3 (outside of a brief home movie showing Andy's toys before they were given away) and her disappearance is brought up by Rex, with Woody saddened over it.
- Sacrificial Lamb: Woody's reaction to the mentioning her absence in Part 3 helps set the film's darker and more somber atmosphere.
- Shallow Female Love Interest: While not much is known about her or how she came to fall in love with Woody, she (unlike most shallow love interests -- both male and female -- in fiction) actually comes off as likable and only suffered from not being fully-developed as a character (which is what resulted in having other female characters that were more well-developed like Jessie the cowgirl, and ironically enough, a Barbie doll).
- The Smurfette Principle: Until Jessie came along, Bo was the only female toy in the room (though technically, she was a porcelain lamp decoration that Andy used when playing with his toys).
- Team Mom: In 1.
- What Could Have Been: Originally, Woody’s love interest was supposed to be a Barbie doll that wore a Pimped-Out Dress and was a Badass. Mattel at the time thought Toy Story would be a flop and couldn't allow the animators and writers to use her in the story (given Toy Story's success, it wouldn't be wrong to picture the Mattel higher-ups kicking themselves over this decision). It wouldn't be until Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3 that Barbie would be featured; first as a supporting character, then as one of the main characters.
Lenny is a blue windup binocular toy. Woody and Buzz use him to see things outside from the windowsill. When Woody is knocked off the moving truck, Lenny is the first to see the duo ride up on RC.
Lenny is voiced by Joe Ranft.
- The Character Died with Him: Unlike Slinky or Wheezy, Lenny did not appear in Toy Story 3, due to Joe Ranft’s death. To be fair, though, it wouldn’t really make much sense for a pair of wind-up binoculars to still be there.
- The Voiceless: He had a few lines in the first Toy Story, but after that, rarely spoke again.
RC is Andy's remote controlled car. He is painted green with water splash designs. He cannot talk, but Mr. Potato Head is able to understand his engine noises and translates for him. At the end of Toy Story, Woody and Buzz ride RC to catch up to the moving truck, and escape from Scud.
Rocky Gibraltar is a wrestler action figure. His name is a reference to the Rock of Gibraltar. Rocky is the strongest toy in Andy's room, but he only speaks in grunts.
Rocky is voiced by Arnold Schwarzenegger
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: He is clearly inspired by Rocky Balboa, played by Sylvester Stallone. However, unlike that Rocky, this one’s voiced by another Top-Heavy Guy.
- Third Person Person
- Top-Heavy Guy
Snake and Robot are best friends, and are usually seen together. Robot is a blue educational robot toy, and snake is green plastic with purple joints. Snake cannot talk, but Robot can and has two lines ("Hey, man, what's up?" and "Mr. Lightyear wants more tape!")
Robot is voiced by Ben Affleck.
Shark is a squeaky rubber shark toy that lives in Andy's toybox. When Woody spends the night in the toybox, he steals Woody's hat. He exclaims, "Look I'm Woody! Howdy! Howdy! Howdy!" He was the one who found a replacement squeaker for Wheezy.
Shark is voiced by Jack Angel.
Microphone Mike is a toy tape recorder, based on the Rockin Robot made by Playschool. Woody uses Mike's microphone to amplify his voice during the staff meeting, and Wheezy uses him as a karaoke machine at the end of Toy Story 2.
Etch-a-Sketch is the "Magic Screen" drawing toy made by Ohio Arts Company. He draws with the knobs under his screen. He is seen drawing guns, a noose, Buzz Lightyear, Al and even complicated maps.
Mr. Spell is a yellow educational typing game. He is known to hold meetings in Andy's room on topics ranging from "Plastic Corrosion Awareness" to "What to do if You or Part of You is Swallowed". He helped Buzz in figuring out the meaning behind Al's license plate in Toy Story 2.
Mr. Spell is voiced by Jeff Pidgeon.
- Matryoshka Object: The Troikas.
Toys at Al's Toy Barn
Stinky Pete is a pull string Prospector doll, and one of Woody's costars on "Woody's Roundup." Woody meets the Prospector in Al's apartment, and he is still mint in the box. He wants to go to the museum in Japan, but when Woody and Jessie decide to return to Andy's room he leaves his box for the first time. He then becomes the main villain of the film, and tries to force Woody and Jessie into their cases. The other toys stop him by using cameras to temporarily blind him, and put him in a backpack belonging to a girl named Amy, who likes to draw on her toys.
- Big Bad: Part of a Big Bad Ensemble with Al in the second film.
- Dirty Old Man: Only in the credits, with the Barbies.
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Woody and Jessie mostly just refer to him as "Prospector".
- Fantastic Racism: He has a deep hatred of space toys because they became more popular since Sputnik, putting cowboy toys and Woody's Roundup out of fashion. The idea that Woody is best friends with a space toy probably sickens him.
- Fate Worse Than Death: His initial feelings on his fate: being given away to a little girl that paints on her toys. OH MY! However, after the release of the film, interviews with the characters were released on the TS2 web site. In his interview, Pete said that he actually came to like being drawn on, and that he was happy. Judging from what Woody said to him before giving him away to the girl, this was the desired outcome of the fate to start with.
- Freudian Excuse: Living in a dime store but never being bought or played with.
- Manipulative Bastard: He does seem to have a genuine fondness for Woody, Jessie, and Bullseye. Doesn't mean he's not going to lie to them and trick them at every opportunity so that they can go along with his plan.
- Mood Swinger: He acts like a father figure to Woody, and still remains a rather calm person while he sealed the air vent shut. But when Jesse tells him its not fair for him to trap them, he snaps.
- Plucky Comic Relief: His character on the show. Which he finds embarrassing.
- Poisonous Friend
- Villainous Breakdown: He's twitching after Woody changes his mind about going with Buzz and the others, and then he snaps. "'Fair'?! I'll tell you what's not fair: Spending a lifetime on a dime-store shelf watching every other toy be sold! Well, finally my waiting has paid off, and no hand-me-down cowboy doll is gonna mess it up for me now!"
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: He really does believe that he's saving Woody, Jessie, and Bullseye from being destroyed by children. It's just that his perspective is very skewed by his backstory.
Evil Emperor Zurg is the archenemy of the Galactic Alliance, and Buzz Lightyear. He has a light-up mouth and eyes, and a spring loaded gun that shoots little yellow balls. He is first seen in the Buzz Lightyear video game that Rex is trying to beat. When the toys go to Al's Toy Barn, they accidentally knock over Zurg's box and he breaks free. He believes he is the real Zurg, and plans to destroy Buzz Lightyear. They later encounter him in an elevator shaft, and he gets in a fight with Bonus Belt Buzz. He reveals he is Buzz's father, but is knocked down by Rex's tail. He is last seen playing catch with Bonus Belt Buzz. In the credits montage for Toy Story 3, a Zurg figure is shown being donated to Sunnyside with a bunch of other new toys - luckily, Sunnyside is a much better place without Lotso's rule. Whether this Zurg is the same one as in Toy Story 2 isn't stated, but it's a possibility.
Zurg is voiced by Andrew Stanton in Toy Story 2, and Wayne Knight in the Buzz Lightyear of Star Command spinoff.
- Big Bad: In the Buzz Lightyear of Star Command TV series.
- Bottomless Magazines: He shoots a lot of nerf balls from his ion gun.
- Breakout Character: He's deceptively popular despite his small role in the movies. So much that the PlayStation 3 version of the Toy Story 3 game has an ad campaign based mostly around him being a playable character.
- Card-Carrying Villain
- Captain Ersatz: Of Darth Vader and the Emperor.
- Daydream Believer: Much like newbrand Buzzs, he's convinced of being the real Emperor Zurg and that his mission is to destroy Buzz Lightyear. This raises interesting questions about what the hell goes on in this franchise's assembly lines.
- Harmless Villain: Newbrand Buzz and Rex are the only ones who take him the least bit seriously when he shows up.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Am I the only troper who recognized that he's also the same voice as Crush?
- Or Alpha, for that matter?
- Large Ham
- Incoming Ham: His first words in Toy Story 2, not counting the video game version?
"AAAARG! DESTROY BUZZ LIGHTYEAR!"
Bonus Belt Buzz is another Buzz encountered in a display at Al's Toy Barn. He believes he is the real Buzz Lightyear (not unlike Andy's Buzz during the first movie), and that Andy's Buzz is a traitorous imposter. He traps Buzz in his box, and goes with the Rescue Party. He helps them find Woody, by climbing through an elevator shaft, and Andy's Buzz shows up. He eventually fights Zurg, and is horrified to learn that Zurg is really his father. He is last seen playing a friendly game of catch with his dad.
Bonus Belt Buzz is also voiced by Tim Allen.
- Acting for Two
- Big No: When he finds out the truth about his father.
- Daydream Believer
- Here We Go Again: Another Buzz who believes he's the real deal.
- Spot the Imposter: A special variety since he's convinced the other Buzz is an imposter to him, and is not aware that he is mistaken for the other in the rescue party. The other Buzz eventually clears up all the confusion by popping his helmet open, and showing everyone else Andy's name on his foot.
- You Killed My Father: A direct Shout-Out to The Empire Strikes Back as Buzz confronts Zurg on the elevator.
Tour Guide Barbie is the barbie that shows the Rescue Party around Al's Toy Barn.
Barbie is voiced by Jodi Benson.
The Rock'em Sock'em Robots are a pair of boxing robots that live on the desk in Al's office. When they are asked for directions, they end up fighting angrily.
The Robots are voiced by John Lasseter and Lee Unkrich.
Sunnyside Daycare Toys
Lots-o-Huggin' Bear is a big pink teddy bear that smells like strawberries. He is the leader of the Daycare Toys, and also the Big Bad in the third film. After his original owner lost and replaced him, he came to Sunnyside. He quickly took over, and rules with an iron fist of hugs. When Andy's toys are donated, he puts them in the Caterpillar Room, where they are tortured by the young children that play there. When Buzz complains, Lotso captures and resets him. With Buzz a part of his gang, he locks the toys in boxes. When they escape, he confronts them on top of Sunnyside's dumpster. After an argument with Woody, his gang see how bad he is and turns on him, and Big Baby throws him in the dumpster. When Andy's toys end up at the dump, they help him survive. He is about to save them, but runs away instead. He is last seen being tied to the front of a garbage truck with some other toys.
Lotso is voiced by Ned Beatty.
- Affably Evil: Beatty's New Orleans accent probably helps.
- And I Must Scream: Or "And I Must NOT Scream". See Fate Worse Than Death. A rather literal example in comparison to the Trope Namer, since he has to keep his mouth closed to keep the bugs and dirt out of it - though likely only when the truck's moving, considering that the other toys had to open their mouths to warn him.
- Berserk Button: The very word "family" seems to be this for Lotso, as Buzz's mention of it seems to be the catalyst for the transition from Lotso's focus on his soft side to his focus on his vicious side. 
- Big Bad
- Big Ol' Eyebrows
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing
- Complete Monster: Totally contrary to his appearance, he holds the honor of being one of Pixar's most detestable and horrifying villains.
- Cool Old Guy: Is quite friendly to the toys when they first arrive to the Day Care. But don't be fooled.
- Corrupt Hick
- Cute Giant: He's literally a teddy bear, and is much bigger than the protagonists.
- Cute Is Evil: Is it EVER!
- Dark and Troubled Past: Being left behind and then replaced by his child.
- A sad twist to it is pretty much said by Woody to Lotso, though he's way too far gone at this point to listen. Humans don't know toys are alive. Lotso's owner didn't know that Lotso was an individual, and replacing him was pretty much a sign of how much she loved her toy. In the end, she didn't abandon Lotso so much as Lotso abandoned her.
- Everything's Worse with Bears: While he seems like a pretty nice guy at first, on the inside he's beary evil.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Word of God itself described Lotso as someone who, after his Start of Darkness, believes that love is a lie and never truly existed.
- Evil Counterpart: He has a lot of similarities with Woody.
- Face Heel Turn
- Fate Worse Than Death: Bound down to the hood of a garbage truck, bugs and mud flying in his face, and getting doomed to slowly decay like the other truck ornament toys - for a long, long time. And even if he does free himself from the front of the truck, he may still be trapped in the dump. The incinerator would have been a kinder fate.
- Or, as the junior novelization of the film puts it, his fate was "worse than being a toy in the Caterpillar Room"!
- The others in that same position didn't sound that unhappy, though they might have just relished New Meat. Well, they still had spirit, anyway.
- Go-Karting with Bowser: In the video game, he is a friendly character in Toy Box mode and only appears in one level of Story Mode, with his status as a villain only passingly mentioned once at a later point. He is completely absent from the Dump levels.
- Of course, the possibility is high that Toy Box Lotso may be a different character from Story Lotso, as there are lots of Lotsos out there, including the one that inadvertedly helped cause Story Lotso's Start of Darkness.
- Grumpy Bear: To an extreme take.
- Hate Sink: You can't hate the previous antagonists because they all had their own redeemable qualities and were Anti-Villains. But by contrast, Lotso is conniving, selfish and cowardly, making him the only truly evil villian (especially by kids' movie standards) uterlly lacking in redeemable qualities.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Ned Beatty, who played a greedy televangelist in the movie Repossessed. What is it with this guy and playing crooked Southern gentlemen?
- Humans Are Bastards: He is a firm believer in this ideology after being replaced by his former owner. Of course, he also thinks toys are worthless junk due to the same incident.
- Ironic Hell: His life's view is that toys are all just trash in the end, because kids don't truly love them. His ultimate fate? Trapped on a dump truck forever due to a grown man having some affection for him.
- It's All About Me
- Kick the Dog: Very frequently but in one case literally when he kicks Slinky Dog across the wastebin.
- Killer Rabbit: He's cute, but don't let that fool you.
- This line from Buttercup pretty much captures his character: "The guy may seem plushy and huggable on the outside, but on the inside he's a monster."
- Knight of Cerebus
- Laser-Guided Karma
- Magnificent Bastard: Manages this until his Villainous Breakdown.
- Manipulative Bastard: Poor Big Baby.
- Nietzsche Wannabe: A toy version. Unlike Stinky Pete, who put all blame of humans for messing up toys, Lotso genuinely believes that disposable trash "is all a toy is" in the long run.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Josef Stalin; although it's somewhat obscure, and probably wasn't consciously intentional.
- Phrase Catcher: "Smells of strawberries."
- Psychotic Smirk: He makes this expression a lot after he reveals his true colors.
- Real Men Wear Pink: Or are pink, in his case.
- Redemption Rejection: He has his chance to redeem himself by saving Woody and the others' lives like they saved his, He quite deliberately blows it.
- Southern Gentleman
- Sealed Evil in a Teddy Bear: A more literal case, as he was never really human to begin with.
- Start of Darkness
- Tragic Villain
- Ungrateful Bastard: Indeed, at least Karma kicked him in the rump not long after. Considering his fate afterwards, you can even classify it as Too Dumb to Live.
- Vile Villain Saccharine Show
- Villainous Breakdown: When he corners the toys trying to escape Sunnyside, he grows increasingly irritated and angry. But when Woody confronts him with his past, he loses it.
- What Could Have Been: Word of God states that his character was made before the original Toy Story, as a Teddy Ruxpin Expy that was stuck in a bargain bin because his tape player was broken. He and his gang of other bargain-bin toys would've snuck out nightly to raid neighborhoods.
Ken is an "Animal Lovin Ken" doll made by Mattel. He lives in his Dreamhouse at Sunnyside Daycare. When Andy's toys end up at the daycare, he and Barbie fall instantly in love. Ken is a member of Lotso's Gang, however. When Barbie finds this out, she breaks up with him. At the end of the film, he realizes Lotso's evil, and reunites with Barbie. During the credits, it is seen that Ken and Barbie made Sunnyside "cool and groovy", and they act as its new toy leaders.
Ken is voiced by Michael Keaton.
- Butt Monkey: The butt-end of a lot of jokes about being made for girls.
- Berserk Button: He's not a girl's toy! He's not!
- Nor is he a glorified accessory!
- Camp Straight
- Co-Dragons: Somewhat, with Big Baby.
- Conflicting Loyalty: Towards his duty to Lotso and his love for Barbie. He inevitably makes a Heel Face Turn and chooses Barbie.
- The Dark Chick

- Hey, It's That Voice!: Voiced by none other than Michael Keaton.
- Heel Face Turn/Love Redeems
- Love At First Sight: For Barbie, of course.
- Real Men Wear Pink: Very effeminate, yet clearly one of the toughest guards in the movie. Turns out that clothing is his weak spot, though.
- Totally Radical
Barbie is a "Great Shape Barbie" doll manufactured by Mattel. She was one of Molly's toys, until she was donated to Sunnyside Daycare. Once there she is swept off her feet by Ken, who hadn't realized Barbies existed.
Barbie is voiced by Jodi Benson.
- Ascended Extra: Barbies first appeared in Toy Story 2, and while we saw a lot of them, they were all minor characters and mostly just used for a few gags. By 3 she is a member of the main gang, and gets some real character development.
- Blue Eyes
- Dumb Blonde: Appears as this at first, but says two lines to Lotso that totally subvert the trope.
- Genius Ditz: Quite the expert on politics.
- Genki Girl
- Hair of Gold: Of course.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Hey, it's Princess Ariel!
- Love At First Sight: For Ken.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: With Jessie in Toy Story 3.
- Took a Level In Badass: In Toy Story 3, when she gets Ken to spill the beans on Lotso's secrets, by ripping his valuable outfits.
- What Could Have Been: Originally, a Barbie doll in a Pimped-Out Dress who acted like Sarah Connor from the Terminator movies was supposed to have been Woody's love interest after she rescued him and Sid's mutant toys from Scud the dog. Mattel refused to give Pixar the rights to use Barbie (fearing that the movie wouldn't be successful and sales of Barbie dolls would plummet because of the movie's supposed failure), so Woody's love interest was changed to the Little Bo Peep figurine and Woody hatched a plan with Sid's mutant toys to trick Scud the dog during the escape to the backyard. It wasn't until the first Toy Story became popular enough for a big-screen sequel (and a third installment) that Mattel decided to let Pixar use Barbie as a character.
Big Baby is a huge baby doll with a broken eye, and pen tattoos. He was once owned by Daisy, but went with Lotso to Sunnyside after she lost them. He is the strongest member of Lotso's Gang. When he realizes that he was never replaced, he becomes angry and throws Lotso into the dumpster.
- Badass Adorable
- Creepy Doll: You'd swear he was manufactured in the Uncanny Valley. The broken eye just makes the effect even more unsettling.
- Cute Giant: He has the appearance and mannerisms of a small child, yet is significantly bigger than the protagonists.
- The Dog Bites Back: When he throws Lotso into the dumpster.
- Dumb Muscle: He's Lotso's chief heavy, but has the mind of a child and only does what he'd told until Lotso pushes him too far.
- The Dragon

- Heel Face Turn / Love Redeems: Remembering his love for his previous owner Daisy and after Woody reveals that Lotso has been lying to him the whole time.
- Genius Bruiser
- The Voiceless: Mostly. He says stereotypically "baby" things like "Mama."
- Spanner in the Works
Twitch is an insectaloid warrior action figure who wouldn't have been out of place in the original Masters of the Universe toy line. He is a member of Lotso's Gang, and is seen gambling in the vending machine. He helps reset Buzz, and later capture Andy's toys. At the end of the film he and Sparks hold down a broken Chatter Telephone.
Twitch is voiced by John Cygan.
- Big Creepy-Crawlies
- The Brute
- Even Evil Has Standards: Just look at his reaction to Lotso hitting Big Baby with the cane.
Stretch is a purple, glittery rubber octopus. She is a member of Lotso's Gang, and is seen gambling in the vending machine (beating the others, possibly thanks to all her tentacles). She helps reset Buzz, and later capture Andy's toys. At the climax of the film she blocks the other end of the garbage chute, blocking escape for Andy's toys. She looks ready to push them in the dumpster... until Woody reveals Lotso's past, and she and the others have a change of heart. In the closing credits montage, when a happier, Lotso-less Sunnyside is shown, Stretch is seen slipping Ken's note to Andy's toys into Bonnie's backpack.
Stretch is voiced by Whoopi Goldberg.
Chunk is an orange rock monster action figure. When the spike on his head is pushed, his face switches from friendly to fierce. He is a member of Lotso's Gang, and is seen gambling in the vending machine. He helps reset Buzz, and later capture Andy's toys.
Chunk is voiced by Brad Garrett.
- Buffy-Speak: "[Buzz] ain't the sharpest knife in the...place where they keep the knives."
- Dumb Muscle
- Shout-Out: Possibly to the Mayor of The Nightmare Before Christmas, with both characters exhibiting a literal "Happy" and "Sad/Angry" expression.
- Two-Faced: Literally. In the picture, he's got his happy face. But when he gets unhappy, he pushes a botton on his head, and it flips to an angry face with red eyes.
Sparks is a tin robot that shoots out sparks when he rolls around. He is a member of Lotso's Gang, and is seen gambling in the vending machine. He helps to reset Buzz, and later capture Andy's toys. At the end of the film he and Twitch hold down a broken Chatter Telephone.
Sparks is voiced by Robert Loggia.
- Deadpan Snarker: After Chunk's remark about Buzz and knives (see above), Sparks remarks "Neither are you!"
Chatter Telephone is rotary telephone pull toy produced by Fisher Price. He can only talk through his receiver. He is the oldest toy in the Caterpillar Room, and takes pride that he has never been broken. Chatter tells Woody how to escape Sunnyside, and the obstacles he must get past. When Lotso finds out he has his gang break Chatter. During the credits, it is revealed that Chatter is eventually fixed, and lives a better life under Ken's leadership.
Chatter is voiced by Teddy Newton.
- Cold-Blooded Torture: Subjected to it.
- The Mentor
- Knight in Sour Armour
- The Old Convict
- Shell Shocked Senior: He's the oldest toy in the daycare and was there when Lotso took over.
- Shout-Out: Chatter's voice and inflection are a dead ringer for Gill in Finding Nemo, who masterminded the escape from the tank.
- Stepford Smiler: That sticker smile is really misleading.
- The Stool Pigeon: Although fits more with the "Lacerated Larry", as he really did help the toys escape and proved to be an extremely useful ally.
Bookworm is a green worm with glasses and a bow-tie. He carries around a flashlight, and keeps a library of instruction manuals in one of Sunnyside's closets. He gives a manual to Lotso that allows him to reset Buzz to demo mode.
Bookworm is voice by Richard Kind.
- Actor Allusion: This isn't the first time Richard Kind has played a bug working on the villains' side.
- Evil Genius
- Hey, It's That Voice!: He's Molt.
- Hey, Wait!
- Scary Librarian: A rare male example.
The Monkey watches over all the monitors of Sunnyside daycare, shrieks into a microphone to warn Lotso of any escaping toys. He looks just like this. Yeah, he's pretty creepy.
- Big Brother Is Watching
- Cool Shades: In the credits montage showing how much nicer and "groovier" Sunnyside is without Lotso, he puts some funky glasses on while playing with his cymbals. This either reduces his scariness level or it doesn't.
- Cymbal-Banging Monkey
- Evil Genius
- Humiliation Conga
- Maniac Monkeys
- Mission Control
- Slasher Smile
- The Guards Must Be Crazy: Subverted; before Andy's toys came along, no one ever got past this guy.
Mr. Pricklepants is a self-defined Classically Trained toy, who prefers to stay silent and hush other toys even when not being played with. Congratulates Woody on his brilliant performance when he first arrives. Along with the rest of Bonnie's toys, he reveals to Woody the terrible secret of Sunnyside, and helps him get back to save his friends. During the credits he puts on a production of Romeo and Juliet with himself as Romeo, and one of the aliens as Juliet.
Mr. Pricklepants is voiced by Timothy Dalton.
- Classically-Trained Extra: Amusingly, he thinks Woody is the classically trained extra.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Well, yeah.
- Large Ham: Comes with the territory.
Trixie is a blue plastic triceratops from the same toyline as Rex. She spends lots of time on the internet, playing online games and chatting. Along with the rest of Bonnie's toys, she reveals to Woody the terrible secret of Sunnyside, and helps him get back to save his friends. During the credits she is seen playing a computer game with Rex.
Trixie is voiced by Kristen Schaal.
- Naive Everygirl
- Gamer Chick
- Geek: Even moreso than Rex, and she seems to be the most computer-savvy toy we see.
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: A surprising amount of her appearances have some of this. 'Just a dinosaur toy down the street', and excitedly playing games with Rex during the credits...
Buttercup is a plush Unicorn toy. Along with the rest of Bonnie's toys, he reveals to Woody the terrible secret of Sunnyside, and helps him get back to save his friends. During the credits it is shown that he has become good friends with Hamm.
Buttercup is voiced by Jeff Garlin.
- Actor Allusion: Jeff Garlin did improv for a while.
- Large Ham: "THERE IS NO WAY OUT!"
- Those Two Guys: Seems to be becoming this with Hamm, as seen in the credits of 3. A short Hawiian Vacation confirms it.
- Vocal Dissonance: A cuddly unicorn with the voice of Jeff Garlin? Perfect.
Dolly is a friendly, somewhat snarky little ragdoll with purple hair, googly eyes, and an orange dress that Bonnie made herself. Along with the rest of Bonnie's toys, she reveals to Woody the terrible secret of Sunnyside, and helps him get back to save his friends. At the end of the film, she shows Andy's toys that they've made it to having drawings on Bonnie's wall, and is seen along with the other toys dancing along to the Spanish version of "You've Got a Friend in Me".
Dolly is voiced by Bonnie Hunt.
- A Dog Named "Dog"
- Cute Witch: She is cute and Bonnie casts her as a witch during a play session.
- Deadpan Snarker: She definitely has her moments - especially regarding Woody's name.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: She's a doll named Dolly.
- Powerpuff Girl Hands
- Shout-Out: Possibly - she looks quite a bit like Coraline, especially with the dark purple bob and hair barrettes. Plus, there is a button on her dress. And she is cast as "the Witch" in Bonnie's playtimes - a reference to the Other Mother?
- Even more so to Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas, especially when you consider that they both are handmade ragdolls.
- Wicked Witch: Plays this role during playtime.
- You Gotta Have Purple Hair: Justified; it's not that uncommon for toys to have unusual hair colors.
Peas in a Pod as a trio of plush peas, Peatey, Peatrice and Peanelope, with a zipper pea-pod. They have the personalities of small children. Along with the rest of Bonnie's toys, they reveal to Woody the terrible secret of Sunnyside, and help him get back to save his friends.

The Peas are voiced by Charlie Bright, Amber Kroner, and Brianna Maiwand.
Totoro is a big plush toy based off the title character from the Japanese film, My Neighbor Totoro. He befriends Buzz and the Aliens in the credits, giving the aliens a fun little ride as he juggles them around.
- The Cameo: No duh.
- Canon Foreigner: From another children's animated movie no less. He ups Bonnie's coolness quotient Up to Eleven.
- The Big Guy: He's significantly bigger than all of Bonnie's toys. Even Andy's.
- Life Imitates Art: Inverted since Hayao Miyazaki and John Lasseter are really, really good friends after all.
- The Pollyanna: He smiles quite a bit.
- The Voiceless: Doesn't even growl like he does in his original appearance.
Chuckles the Clown is a depressed clown who was abandoned together with Lotso and Big Baby. After Lotso became the Big Bad and took over Sunnyside, he left and came into Bonnie's care.
Chuckles is voiced by Bud Luckey.
- Dark and Troubled Past
- Evil Former Friend: Has one in Lotso. Chuckles himself isn't though.

- Knight in Sour Armour
- Mr. Exposition: He fills Woody in on Lotso's backstory and the situation at Sunnyside.
- Non-Ironic Clown
- Perpetual Frowner: Is this for almost the entire movie, until when he sees a picture of him drawn by Bonnie.
- The Eeyore: Bud Luckey even voiced Eeyore the following year!
- When He Smiles The end credits show him finally smiling. Cue Squee.
Sid's Mutant Toys
These are all of the toys that were maimed, blown up, or had their body parts swapped by Sid. Despite their horrifying, Frankenstein's Monster-esque appearances, these toys are actually all friendly. The mutant toys appear to be led by an odd toy who appears to be made up of a baby doll head mounted on top of a spider body made from an Erector kit. Other members include a toy car with legs instead of wheels, a fishing pole with Barbie legs, a jack-in-the-box containing a grasping hand instead of a clown/jester, an action figure upper torso mounted onto a skateboard, a wind-up frog with mismatched wheels, a bizarre insect toy with a Rocky Gibraltar torso for legs, a Janie doll (which was Hannah's) with a Pterodactyl head (thanks to one of Sid's "operations"), a toy with a duck head on top of an action figure torso with a spring for a lower body, an action figure head on top of a musical roller toy, a rusted-up monster truck that was buried in some sand, two action figures who are missing some arms and/or legs, another doll, and one of the squeeze-toy aliens from Pizza Planet.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Just about the creepiest things Pixar has ever made, and yet not worse than the other toys.
- The Dog Bites Back: When Woody convinces them to finally stand up to Sid.
- Misunderstood Loner with a Heart of Gold: Woody is shocked when they turn out to only look like monsters.
- The Speechless
- Why Isn't It Attacking??
Discarded Fun Meal Toys
Andy is the owner of the characters. He's voiced by John Morris.
- Big Brother Instinct
- Cheerful Child
- Blue Eyes
- Disappeared Dad: Although it's not really raised by the characters, it's notable that Mr. Davis is not present. His whereabouts have never been established, but Word of God revealed that Woody was a hand-me-down from father to son, leading to popular speculation that Mr. Davis passed away when Andy was very young.
- Mr. Fanservice/Bishonen: As a 17-year old in Toy Story 3.
- He Is All Grown Up: In Toy Story 3.
Andy's Mom is voiced by Laurie Metcalf.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Andy's mom is Jackie from Roseanne (and, if you really want to be obscure, a very short-lived feature player on Saturday Night Live during its aborted retool episode after Jean Doumanian and company [save for Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo] got fired). She is also Sheldon's fundamentalist mom on The Big Bang Theory.
- Hot Mom
- Unnamed Parent
Molly is Andy's little sister, voiced by Hannah Unkrich (Lee's daughter) in Toy Story 2, and Beatrice Miller in Toy Story 3. Archive recordings from Toy Story 2 were used for her toddler scenes in Toy Story 3, and her voice provider for the first film is unknown. (Hannah wasn't born until shortly before Toy Story 2.)
- Annoying Younger Sibling: Averted with Andy in Toy Story 1 and 2, as she was a baby/toddler at the time. She does annoy Mr. Potato Head whenever she drools on him though.
- Played straight in Toy Story 3 when she constantly bugs Andy about wanting his room once he leaves for college, though it's still made obvious that the two love each other alot.
- Blue Eyes
- Hair of Gold
Sid is Andy's polar opposite, and next door neighbor. He's a primary source of Nightmare Fuel to Andy's toys. He's voiced by Erik Von Detten.
- Big Bad: Is the main villain of the first film.
- Cheerful Child: Buzz mistakes him for a "happy child" in the first movie. And he does seem pretty cheerful. Just not in a way you would remotely enjoy if you were one of his toys.
- Enfante Terrible
- Evil Counterpart: To Andy, even Word of God confirms this.
- For the Evulz: "He tortures toys! JUST FOR FUN!"
- He is All Grown Up: That garbage man in Part 3? Take a good look at the name tag.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: It's Lawson!
- Humiliation Conga: What Woody did to Sid traumatized the boy so much that, 15 years later, he has grown up to be an uneducated loser working as a garbage-man. For the time being, anyway.
- Then again, garbagemen make a pretty good amount of cash.
- That and he's not nearly as bad of a person as he used to be. So maybe he wasn't traumatized so much as reformed by Woody's actions.
- Then again, garbagemen make a pretty good amount of cash.
- Intercontinuity Crossover: Appears in the comic book spinoff of Monsters, Inc., where he has managed to sneak into the Monster world and use the doors as a means to steal toys from kids to prevent what happened to him from happening to anyone else.
- Jerkass: His interactions with his sister clearly show him as this.
- Leitmotif: Gets a weird marching theme.
- Obliviously Evil: Since he has no way of knowing the toys are sentient and actually feel what he's doing to them for most of the first film, though the fact that he likes to pretend to torture his toys is probably not a good sign.
- Punny Name: Take the "d" and second "p" out of his name.
- Stuff Blowing Up: He loves blowing up toys.
- Troubling Unchildlike Behaviour: Woody and co. traumatizing him was probably for the best. If he tortures toys for no reason, who's to say he wouldn't move on to animals or humans as he got older, if left unchecked? While merely a Jerkass bully then, parental neglect could have turned him into something worse. As Toy Story 3 shows, he is now a still obnoxious but pretty much harmless garbage man.
- Big Bad: Unwittingly though.
- Harmless Villain: The only villain in the movie who poses no threat whatsoever to the toys (especially Woody, whose well-being is in his best interests).
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Newman quit his job as a mailman, moved out of New York, and became a toy store owner!
- Large Ham: Especially in his giant chicken persona.
- Obliviously Evil: Like Sid, he's more evil from the toys' perspective than from humans'. Stealing Woody is a misdemeanor as far as he and other humans are concerned (and it's suggested he's done a lot of such misdemeanors to get his hands on collectibles), but to toys, it's straight-up kidnapping.
- Villainous Glutton
Emily was Jessie's previous owner who was only seen in one flashback. Her outgrowing the doll and throwing it away left a deep emotional scar on Jessie.
- Distaff Counterpart: She's essentially a female Andy. This comes full circle in Toy Story 3.
Bonnie is voiced by Emily Hahn.
- Cheerful Child
- Generation Xerox: She's basically the Distaff Counterpart version of Andy when he was younger. Andy gives the whole gang of his old toys to her as he's leaving for college, so that they will be able to make another kid happy. Though this was partially orchestrated by Woody.
- Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Just look at the way she treats her toys. We love her for this reason.
- Hazel Eyes
- Meaningful Name: Bonnie. Adorable. 'Nuff said.
- Shrinking Violet: Is shy around other people.
