    Incredible Characters Wiki
    (Redirected from Sox (Lightyear))
    "Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow."
    Gender: Male
    Type: Robotic Emotional Supporter
    Species: Robotic Cat
    Portrayed by: Peter Sohn
    Status: Active
    Media of origin: Lightyear

    Sox is the tritagonist of Pixar's 26th full-length animated feature film Lightyear, a Toy Story spin-off prequel film centered on the origin story of Buzz Lightyear.

    He was 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 film's grim and dead-serious tone, as he practically steals the film thanks to his comedic and adorable behavior, just like Forky from Toy Story 4. If Sox did not exist in the film, the film would be so dreary, gloomy, and overwhelmingly serious.
    3. He was meant to be a therapy pet, but he is much more than just a robot made for emotional support. He is this film's feline equivalent of R2D2 and C3PO from the Star Wars trilogy, as 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 the film, he seemed like he was about to be some annoying comic relief who would be the worst character in the film. However, when the film came out, he managed to change practically everyone's first opinions of him, and he has become a universally-beloved character because of his one-liners, his charm, his likability, and the hilarity he provides throughout the film.
      • Simply put, what was thought to be the worst character in the film turned out to be considered to be the film's best character.
    5. Along with being incredibly cute and funny, he is also pretty smart.
      • He questions Buzz, is always there to support him regardless of the situation he is 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 (Izzy, Mo, and Darby). Buzz eventually sides with them after showing how reclusive and arrogant he was.
      • He guides Izzy to face her fears of space when she needs to fly into Zurg's spaceship with a leap of faith.
    6. Peter Sohn does a phenomenal job voicing him, giving his voice a layer of robotic cuteness to his already adorable personality, thus making for a great performance.
    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. The way he playfully imitates electronic sounds and his meowing are hilarious to listen to.
    9. He provides many funny one-liners and quick quips:
      • "Congratulations, Buzz. That was utterly terrifying, and I regret having joined you."
      • "I bought you five minutes."

    Bad Qualities

    1. Some viewers dislike his character since his design can be easily marketable in an extremely subtle way that contradicts the film's existence.
    2. Speaking of being marketable, due to all of the film's disorganized issues and problems, it makes no sense that Sox would not 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.
