    Sox (Lightyear)
    Sox the Robotic Cat.png
    "Meow meow meow meow."
    Gender: Male
    Type: Hilarious and Lovable Sidekick
    Age: Unknown
    Species: Robotic Cat
    Portrayed by: Peter Sohn
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: Lightyear

    Sox is an orange robotic cat and Buzz's personal companion in the 2022 Disney/Pixar animated film, Lightyear. He is voiced by Peter Sohn.

    Why He Deserves a Frosted Snack Cake

    1. His cute, cuddly, and humorous personality stands out from everyone else in the film to a positive extent.
    2. Much like many beloved comic relief characters such Bertram Winkle from Jessie and The Red Guy from Cow and Chicken: he brings light to the movie's grim and dead-serious tone, as he practically steals the movie thanks to his comedic and adorable behavior, just like Forky from Toy Story 4. If Sox didn't exist in the film, the film would be so dreary, gloomy, and overwhelmingly serious, as it would not be as hilarious or light-hearted without him!
    3. He intended to be a therapy pet, but he is much more than just a robot made for emotional support. He is this movie's feline equivalent of R2D2 and C3PO from the Star Wars trilogy since both characters are known for being highly skilled in anything technology-related, having helpful tools and gadgets that help the protagonists progress, and providing tons of quick quips for comedic value.
    4. In the trailer for Lightyear, he seemed like he was about to be some annoying comic relief who'd be the worst character in the film. However, when the movie came out, he managed to change practically everyone's first opinions of him and has become a universally beloved character because of his one-liners, his charm, his likability, and the hilarity he provided throughout the film.
      • Simply put, what was thought to be the worst character in Lightyear turned out to be considered to be the movie's best character.
    5. Along with being incredibly cute and funny, he's also pretty smart.
      • He questions Buzz, is always there to support Buzz regardless of the situation he's in, generally shares how he feels with just about anything, and most importantly, can sometimes be very empathetic to the point of seeing both sides of the problem towards Buzz and the mini-squad of rookies (Mo, Izzy, and Darby). Buzz eventually sides with them after showing how reclusive and arrogant he was.
      • He even guides Izzy Hawthorne to face her fears of space when she needed to fly into Zurg's spaceship with a leap of faith.
    6. Peter Sohn did a phenomenal job voicing him, giving his voice a layer of robotic cuteness to his already adorable personality.
    7. He has so many impressive and useful gadgets as a robot that are worth noting. These include applying fuel to Buzz's spaceship from his tail that has a charger, being able to shoot tranquilizer darts through his mouth, and forcefully making a lighter inside of his mouth to burn metallic doors down.
    8. How he playfully imitates electronic sounds and his meowing are hilarious to listen to.
    9. He provides many funny one-liners and quick quips, for example, "Congratulations Buzz, that was utterly terrifying and I regret having joined you." and "I bought you five minutes."

    Bad Qualities

    1. Some viewers dislike his character as his design can be easily marketable in an extremely subtle way that contradicts the movie's existence.
    2. On the topic of being marketable, due to all of the movie's disorganized issues and problems, it makes no sense that Sox wouldn't be as marketable as say, Buzz or Zurg, within the Toy Story universe.
    3. He can be the source of plot convenience, which would take away more tension than the film's story needed to have.


    • His name is a play on the word "socks", which is a human everyday object, most likely to him after as a name for socks the cat, as it is a popular domestic cat name among cat owners. However, in Australian origin, the name Sox means "Saviour".
    • He is possibly based on Comet, a character from the canceled Circle Seven Animation version of Toy Story 3 and the cat sidekick to the main antagonist of said version of the aforementioned movie, Daxx Blastar.
    • He bears a resemblance with Goose, the "cat" in Captain Marvel in the way that it is more dangerous than meets the eye and can "regurgitate" important items.
    • His tone of voice feels very similar to the HQ member Collie from Cats & Dogs, as seen in the scene where he told Butch about the mission.
