-->--'''[[CaptainSpaceDefenderOfEarth Buzz Lightyear]]'''

''[[UrExample The]]'' very first computer-animated theatrical film (and therefore an extraordinarily influential part of UsefulNotes/TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation), ''Toy Story'' is a renowned 1995 film from Creator/{{Pixar}} about [[LivingToys toys that come to life]] when their owners aren't around. It is the first installment of the [[Franchise/ToyStory titular film series]] and it has spawned two successful sequels, [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory2 one in 1999]] and [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 the other in 2010]]. A third sequel, ''Toy Story 4'', is scheduled for a 2018 release.

''Toy Story'' introduces us to a group of {{toys}} belonging to a boy named Andy. Their unofficial leader is Andy's favorite toy, Woody, an old cowboy doll with a pull-string vocalizer. Woody receives some competition when Andy gets a new toy for his birthday, "[[CaptainSpaceDefenderOfEarth Buzz Lightyear of Star Command]]", who thinks he's really a soldier of Star Command rather than a toy. His undoubted leadership qualities (and up-to-date modernity) arouse jealousy in Woody; when Buzz is "[[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident accidentally]]" lost, the other toys think Woody masterminded the disappearance. Hijinks ensue, and Woody and Buzz have a final confrontation that forces both of them to join forces to keep the toy "family" together.

In 2009, ''Toy Story'' was re-released alongside ''Toy Story 2'' as a double feature in stereoscopic [[UsefulNotes/ThreeDMovie Disney Digital 3-D]], with the two films completely re-rendered to match the level of detail of ''Toy Story 3'' (the UK had to wait until January 2010 for ''Toy Story 2'' to come out in 3D).

[[AndTheAdventureContinues The characters make further appearances]] in a series of shorts titled ''Toy Story Toons''. The first installment, "Hawaiian Vacation", played at the beginning of ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} Cars 2]]''. The second, "Small Fry", was shown before ''Film/TheMuppets'' (and shown in some countries with ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}''). The third, ''Partysaurus Rex'', was shown before the 3D re-release of ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''. A fourth in the form of a HalloweenSpecial, ''WesternAnimation/ToyStoryOfTerror'', aired on ABC on October 16th, 2013. On December 2, 2014, ABC aired Pixar's first true ChristmasSpecial, ''WesternAnimation/ToyStoryThatTimeForgot'', which featured the characters lost in a very 1980s play set of dinosaur warriors.
----
!!''Toy Story'' provides examples of:
* AllCGICartoon: The very first feature film.
* AllThereInTheManual: The names of most of Sid's toys were only in shown in the script, the novelization of the movie, and the EnemyRollCall at the end of the video game.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Buzz is a modern, battery-powered, talking toy with pop-out wings, a "lightbulb that blinks", and a retractable helmet. Woody... has a drawstring-powered vocalizer. You can see why he'd feel a bit threatened by Buzz's presence at first.
* AmusingInjuries: Woody suffers from them in the trunk of the Pizza Planet truck and when Buzz accidentally drops the toolbox on him. Averted when Buzz breaks off his arm.
* ArgumentOfContradictions: Woody and Buzz have one early on over whether or not Buzz can fly. It ends when Woody challenges Buzz to prove that he can, resulting in the famous "falling with style" sequence.
-->'''Buzz: ''Can!'''''
* AnArmAndALeg: Buzz's attempt to fly out Sid's window results in a long fall and the loss of his left arm. Woody ends up [[HoldingBothSidesOfTheConversation using the arm to try and convince Andy's toys that Buzz is ok]], before Sid's toys reattach it.
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: For being "not a flying toy," Buzz Lightyear does seem to break the laws of physics:
** The various features of the Buzz Lightyear action figure itself can't all fit in one toy, which is one reason why it hasn't been fully Deficitionalized. (In particular, the spring-loaded wings and the karate-chop button on the back are physically mutually exclusive.)
** The shape and length of Buzz's wings would not enable an object of his and Woody's combined mass to glide except under highly improbable wind conditions.
* BanisterSlide: Woody is sent on one by Andy near the beginning.
* BigWhat: Woody screams this when Buzz accuses him of endangering the universe.
-->'''Buzz:''' Because of ''you'' the security of the entire universe is in jeopardy!\\
'''Woody:''' WHAT?? What are you talking about?!
* BondOneLiner: By Woody, as he uses Buzz's karate action to drive away Sid's toys (who they think are cannibals at the time).
-->'''Woody:''' Sorry guys, but dinner's ''cancelled''!
* BorrowedCatchphrase: During the "falling with style" climax, Woody cries "To infinity, and beyond!"
* BreakTheHaughty: Whilst Woody tends to not rub it in anyone's faces, he's top of the heap and knows it until Buzz shows up and threatens his position as Andy's favourite toy. Then he becomes increasingly jealous and insecure. See AlwaysSomeoneBetter.
* BrickJoke: What Mr. Potato Head hopes Andy would get at his birthday.
-->'''Mr. Potato Head:''' ''[praying]'' Mrs. Potato Head. Mrs. Potato Head. Mrs. Potato Head...! ''[gets stared at]'' Hey, I can dream, can't I?
** The payoff comes at Christmas Time, where Molly gets a Mrs. Potato head, who appears in the following movies.
* BuffySpeak: Not too surprising, since Creator/JossWhedon was one of the writers and given [[Series/BuffytheVampireSlayer some of his other work...]]
-->'''Woody:''' Your helmet does that... that woosh-thing!
* CannotTellFictionFromReality: Buzz fully believes he is actually [[CaptainSpaceDefenderOfEarth Buzz Lightyear, Space Ranger of Star Command]], crash-landed and needing to get home to save the galaxy from a superweapon, until his TomatoInTheMirror moment when he sees a commercial for himself.
* CaptainErsatz: Bo Peep, since Creator/{{Mattel}} didn't allow Creator/{{Pixar}} to use Franchise/{{Barbie}} at the time, since they didn't think the movie would get much exposure, among other reasons. The company quickly reversed their decision after seeing the success of the first movie, which is why Barbie is featured significantly more than Bo Peep in the rest of the series.
* CassandraTruth: Buzz's HeroicBSOD in Sid's room as Woody is attempting to engineer an escape leaves Woody without hard evidence that Buzz is alive. It doesn't help when Woody accidentally produces Buzz's severed arm. What could have been a simple escape without all the drama of the final action sequence is averted because the toys won't believe Woody and refuse to rescue him.
* CentralTheme: The destructiveness of [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy and insecurity]], and ThePowerOfFriendship.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Seeing as Potato Head is slightly more of a jerk in this movie than in later installments. He gets better after a HeroicBSOD by the little green men.
* ChekhovsBoomerang: Buzz's wings. Used first by Buzz to try and prove he can fly, then when he tries and fails to fly in Sid's house (resulting in a broken arm), and finally used in the climax [[spoiler:to separate himself and Woody from the rocket before it blows up, and seconds later when "falling with style".]]
* ChekhovsGun:
** After being burned by Sid's magnifying glass, Woody is able to [[spoiler:light the fuse on the rocket with Buzz's helmet]].
** Subverted immediately beforehand. The [[RedHerring match in Woody's pocket]] had been ''blatantly'' set up for this exact purpose, but as soon as he lights it, Woody and Buzz are run over (as in, a car passes directly over them) and the match blows out.
** Also RC being [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin remote controlled]]. First used to knock off Buzz, then used to rescue him.
** Not flying, but [[EleventhHourSuperpower "falling with style"]].
** The rocket itself.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: During the scene where Sid is decapitating his sister's doll, he is playing "doctor." During the "operation" Buzz says, "I don't believe that man's ever been to medical school."
* ContainerCling: Woody does this to avoid being tied to a rocket by Sid.
* CoveredInKisses: Bo Peep does this to Woody at the end, courtesy of mistletoe ([[FridgeLogic though it isn't made apparent that Bo Peep has on lipstick until Woody is later seen with a face full of kiss marks, looking pretty pleased with himself]]. RuleOfFunny, of course).
* CreepyDoll: [[MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold Babyface]], a head of a baby doll that's missing its hair, an ''eye'', and is connected to a spider-like erector set.
* CurbStompBattle: Buzz knocks Woody around for most of their brawl at Pizza Planet, barring a few mildly uncomfortable-looking socks to his squeaker head.
* DarkIsNotEvil: [[MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold Sid's toys]]. They only do the bidding of their master, and look scary enough to be mistaken as evil toys.
* DeadpanSnarker: Hamm and Mr. Potato Head, with nearly every line. Woody to Buzz in the first movie.
* DescriptionCut: After sending the army men out, Woody says, "Come on! They're not lying down on the job." Cut to the army men (one having been crushed), kicked off to the side by Andy's mom, and not able to get up until she's walked away.
* DestinationDefenestration: Buzz falls out the window after Woody's scheme to go with Andy to Pizza Planet goes awry.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: Woody lights the rocket strapped to Buzz as a last resort to get back to Andy and the realization that rockets explode hits him seconds before it goes off.
* DingDongDitchDistraction: Sid's toys does this in order for Woody to get ''out'' of Sid's house.
* TheDogBitesBack: Sid's toys scare the tar out of him at the end of the film, though this was done to teach him not to mistreat his toys.
* DramaticThunder: Played with. Lightning strikes when Sid attaches Buzz to the rocket... only for the rain to delay the take-off.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: The Pizza Planet delivery man. ''Good GOD.''
* EasilyCondemned: Most of the toys are quick to believe Woody would try to off Buzz. Only Slinky stays loyal, only being convinced after the more plausible display of [[NotWhatItLooksLike Woody handling Buzz's discarded arm]].
* EasilyForgiven: Subverted after Woody sends Buzz out the window. For a moment, it seems like he will forgive him...but then he starts to try to beat the crud out of him, thanks to ExactWords.
-->'''Buzz:''' Even though you tried to terminate me, revenge is not an idea we promote on my planet. [...] But we're not on my planet, ''are we?''
* EurekaMoment: "Out the window! Buzz, you're a genius!" Also, when Woody realizes that the sunlight shining through Buzz's helmet is burning his hand, and he can use that to light the rocket.
* EvilCounterpart: As mentioned before, Sid is the total opposite of Andy.
* ExactlyWhatIAimedAt: Buzz glides himself straight over the moving van--to the car in front of it, where the open sunroof provides access to Andy.
* ExactWords: Woody asks Buzz to give him a hand to convince the other toys Buzz is alive and well. Buzz responds by [[VisualPun literally throwing an arm at him]].
-->'''Woody:''' Uh, Buzz? We missed the truck!\\
'''Buzz:''' We're not aiming for the truck!
** It seems at first like Buzz will forgive Woody for causing him to be knocked out the window because "revenge is not an idea we promote on [Buzz's] planet", only for Buzz to remind him that they're not ''on'' his planet. Are they? Cue an OhCrap from Woody.
* ExorcistHead: Buzz punches Woody during their fight and sets his head to spinning--as a toy, his neck is a simple swivel mount. Later Woody rotates his head 360 degrees [[spoiler:to scare away Sid]].
-->'''Woody:''' We toys can see ''everything...''
* ExpospeakGag: Usually courtesy of Buzz, such as while "repairing" his spaceship box.
-->'''Buzz:''' Unidirectional bonding strip...\\
'''Robot:''' Mr. Lightyear wants more tape!
* FacePalm: Woody, after the other toys panic about the presents' sizes, and after meeting the Little Green Men.
-->'''Woody:''' This is ludicrous...
* FalseReassurance: Buzz gives one to Woody in the van.
-->'''Buzz:''' I just wanted to let you know that even though you tried to terminate me, revenge is not an idea we promote on our planet.\\
'''Woody:''' Oh, well, that's good.\\
'''Buzz:''' [[PreAsskickingOneLiner But we're not on my planet, are we?]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: The action figure Sid blows up during his introductory scene.
* FatalFireworks: Sid ties Buzz to a rocket with the intent of firing it and watching it and Buzz blow up. Woody later uses the rocket to catch up to the moving van, jumping off just before the explosion.
* FeedbackRule: Woody gets feedback when he starts the meeting, so he tells the speaker for the toy microphone to step back.
* FireForgedFriends: Woody starts out hating Buzz, who gets angry at him in turn after his DestinationDefenestration. Their efforts to get back to Andy's room seal their friendship.[[note]] This trope's title just caused a major FunnyAneurysmMoment in light of the third movie...[[/note]]
* FlappingCheeks: At the end, when Woody and Buzz Lightyear fly on a rocket to catch up to Andy's car, Woody's cheeks flap around from the wind in his face. Buzz isn't affected, because he's wearing a helmet.
* ForcedFriendlyFire: Woody uses Buzz Lightyear as a HumanShield to escape from Sid's room. To repel Sid's hideous toys, Woody presses a button on Buzz's back that activates Buzz's Karate-Chop Action. This works because Sid's toys are actually not hostile to Woody and Buzz.
-->'''Buzz:''' Hey, hey, hey! How're you doing that?
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** When we first see Sid in the film, the idea of stopping Sid from torturing toys is brought up. This of course sets up Woody and the mutant toys coming alive in front of Sid later.
** When we first see Hannah in the film in the first scene in Sid's house, Sid asks her if his package has arrived yet. This package later turns out to be [[spoiler:the rocket]] that plays a big role in the film's climax.
** Sid sticks a match in Woody's holster with the line, "You and I can have a "cookout" later, hehehe!" The match, however, is a RedHerring; it's immediately blown out when Woody tries to use it.
* ForgotICouldntSwim: A non-comedic version happens when Slinky Dog attempts to rescue Woody and Buzz by stretching himself onto the moving van ramp. Even if the batteries hadn't run out, it's unlikely he would have had much success.
* FreezeFrameBonus: Look carefully at the box Andy's Mom removes from the closet during the party sequence and you see [[spoiler: images of Buzz]] all over it. Guess what was inside the box.
* ForWantOfANail: Funnily enough, had Buzz not turned around, he wouldn't have been knocked out the window.
* FriendshipSong: "You've Got a Friend in Me" is this for the film and its sequels.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent:
** When Woody announces that Andy's birthday party was taking place on that day and the other toys panic, [[BigWhat "WHAT????"]] scrolls across Mr. Spell's screen.
** Mr. Spell is good at this; his screen reads "HUBBA HUBBA" when the arrival of a Mrs. Potato Head is announced.
** When Mr. Potato Head and Hamm are drawn away from their TabletopGame/{{Battleship}} game, we see that Potato Head's board is nearly completely covered in white pegs--excepting only the areas where Hamm's ships are. Clearly someone isn't very good at Battleship...
** Many of the arcade games at Pizza Planet count. ''Combat Wombat'', anyone?
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Woody to Buzz--with Buzz's own ''[[AnArmAndALeg dismembered arm]]''. [[BlackHumor It's]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice hilarious.]]
* GoingNative: Buzz is an odd example, since he was technically a "native" all along, but he thinks of himself as an outsider who gets accepted into a new culture when Andy writes his name on Buzz's foot. And although "revenge is not an idea that we promote on my planet... we're not on my planet, are we?"
* GoneHorriblyRight: Woody wanted to knock Buzz off the desk so Andy would have to take him to Pizza Planet... and [[DestinationDefenestration boy did he ever]] knock Buzz off the desk.
* GoodAllAlong: The mutant toys. Woody and Buzz initially believe they are cannibals, but this stops after they reattach Buzz's severed arm to his body and that they repaired Janie and the pterodactyl by switching their heads back. Then they assist Woody in saving Buzz from the rocket and terrify Sid by revealing they are alive in front of him.
* GoryDiscretionShot: The destruction of Sid's Combat Carl isn't shown on-screen, being replaced by a shot of the toys looking at the commotion through Andy's window, but we do see pieces of it flying around after the explosion.
* GrievousHarmWithABody: Again, the dismembered arm GetAHoldOfYourselfMan slap.
* HaHaHaNo:
** Woody to a toy shark when he does a lame impression of him after finding his hat.
--->'''Woody:''' ''[gasping for breath]'' ...finally... hey, who's got my hat?\\
'''Shark:''' ''[with Woody's hat]'' Look! I'm Woody. Howdy howdy howdy!\\
'''Woody:''' ''[sarcastically]'' Aah-hah! Aah-haaa... GIMME THAT! ''[snatches hat back]''
** Again with Woody after he tells Buzz to "give him a hand", Buzz throws his dismembered arm at him.
--->'''Woody:''' Hahaha, that's very funny Buzz... ''[with annoyance]'' THIS IS SERIOUS!!
* HeroicBSOD: Buzz goes through a very humiliating one after he realizes he is a toy.
* HesAFriend: Woody to Buzz when several [[MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold other toys]] appear.
* HoldingBothSidesOfTheConversation: After Buzz's HeroicBSOD, Woody attempts to convince the other toys that Buzz is fine by holding [[ItMakesSenseInContext Buzz's severed arm from behind a wall]] and imitating his voice.
* HollywoodGiftwrap: [[TheLancer Buzz Lightyear]] arrives in this.
* IAmBecomingSong: "Strange Things (Are Happening to Me)," when it becomes obvious to Woody that he's being replaced by Buzz.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Sort of. When Hamm and Potato Head are playing Battleship, Potato Head covers nearly the whole board in white pegs--missing Hamm's ships completely.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Virtual Realty, the real estate company that sold Andy's house.
* IronicEcho: "This isn't flying! This is falling, with style!"
* ItWontTurnOff: Sid is disturbed when Woody begins talking even though his drawstring is not pulled out, although let's be honest, if a talking toy managed to start talking without it being activated, you'd probably assume it was busted too. Now if that toy [[ParanoiaFuel starts talking directly to you and addresses you with your]] ''[[ParanoiaFuel full name]]'', wouldn't you freak out just a little?
* IWillOnlySlowYouDown:
** The wounded soldier to his Sergeant, leading to the [[NoOneGetsLeftBehind inevitable response]].
** Buzz says something similar to Woody when his rocket gets stuck in the fence. Woody doesn't leave him behind either.
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: Parodied as Sid attempts to make Woody reveal the location of [[Franchise/StarWars the rebel base]]. Buzz congratulates him for not talking.
* {{Jerkass}}: Sid Phillips, Mr. Potato Head and initially Woody with Buzz. And arguably Hamm.
* JerkassHasAPoint:
** Mr. Potato Head, who's never really respected Woody for whatever reason, brings up a good point about getting rid of fellow toys you fear will dethrone you as your owner's favorite toy, as you might as well get rid of every other toy in the room as well.
--->'''Mr. Potato Head:''' What if Andy starts playing with ''me'' more, Woody, huh? You gonna knock me out of the window, too?
** Woody is constantly doing this to Buzz when he tries to point out that he's a toy.
* KidsAreCruel: Inverted with Sid. He tortures toys in the most vicious ways, though he has no way of knowing that the toys are actually sentient. Played straight in his relationship with Hannah, however.
* LanternJawOfJustice: [[CaptainSpaceDefenderOfEarth Buzz Lightyear]] sports one [[{{Troperiffic}} quite intentionally]].
* LaserGuidedKarma:
** Mr. Potato Head, being, debatably, the film's ''other'' antagonist, gets his pieces sent flying towards the end. He's OK (unfortunately).
** Sid bullies his little sister by stealing her toys from her and mutilating them--so after his confrontation with the living toys, when he comes across his sister with a doll and reacts with terror towards it, she gleefully takes the opportunity to settle scores.
** Buzz uses the exact same words Woody used on him to try and snap him out of his fantasy.
* LeapOfFaith: When Buzz jumps off the banister in Sid's house, believing that he can fly.
* LivingToy: The movie is centered around these.
* LordErrorProne: Buzz Lightyear probably counts.
* LostInTransmission: The baby monitor the toys are using to keep tabs on the birthday party cuts out just before Andy opens Buzz Lightyear's box. Rex shakes the nightstand in frustration, knocking the monitor over before they can get the signal back.
-->'''Rex:''' [[SeriousBusiness IT'S A WHAT?!? WHAT IS IT?!?]]
* MagicAIsMagicA: Averted. "Buzz, you're flying!" "NOT A FLYING TOY". The closest we get to even a handwave as to how Buzz can suddenly glide with flawless dexterity and accuracy at the end is "falling with style". It's still an awesome ending, but they probably wouldn't have contradicted themselves so boldly if they'd known there'd be a trilogy.
** [[{{WesternAnimation/Gargoyles}} Buzz can't fly; he can only glide on currents of wind.]]
* MatryoshkaObject: One of the toys is a nesting egg, called a Troika doll. Its layers are (from biggest to smallest) bulldog, cat, duck, goldfish, and ladybug.
* MeaningfulEcho: The reconnaissance mission that Woody sends the toy soldiers on during Andy's party at the beginning, with the toys nervous about what Andy could receive, is repeated at the end on Christmas (Woody mentions this during the earlier scene - "Every Christmas and birthday we go through this"), only this time, the toys are excited instead of nervous.
* MistakenForMurderer: Andy's toys believe that Woody murdered Buzz after he falls out the open window.
* MixAndMatchCritters: The results of Sid's "experimentations" with his toys.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:
** The other toys soon realise their mistake after they finally see Buzz is okay (after throwing Woody out of the moving truck, no less).
--->'''Rex:''' Great. Now I have guilt.
** Woody also goes through this a bit, when his plan to knock Buzz between the desk and the wall results in him knocking Buzz out of the window.
* NecktieLeash: A variant with Bo Peep [[FetishFuel using her shepherd's crook to draw Woody closer to her]].
* NeverMyFault: Woody and Buzz go through a [[BlameGame lengthy "You started it" argument]] after Buzz attacking him leaves them stranded at a gas station. This escalates to Buzz accusing Woody of [[ItMakesSenseInContext endangering the entire universe]].
-->'''Woody:''' I'm lost! Andy is ''gone''! They're gonna move from the house in two days and it's all your fault!!!\\
'''Buzz:''' My fa-- My fault?!? If you hadn't knocked me out of the window in the first place--\\
'''Woody:''' ''[fumes indignantly]'' Oh yeah? Well if ''you'' hadn't shown up in your stupid little cardboard spaceship and taken away everything that was important to me--\\
'''Buzz:''' Don't talk to ''me'' about importance!
* NeverTrustATrailer:
** The first theatrical trailer has a clip of Buzz asking Woody "You're mocking me, aren't you?" while he's pushing a tool box off a shelf and onto Woody. In the trailer's context, given the use of prior clips, it seems as if Buzz is getting revenge. In the final movie, however, Buzz is just trying to help Woody escape, and doesn't know Woody managed to get himself out and continues pushing the tool box, and Buzz actually says "Almost...there." The line that is used in the trailer is actually from much earlier on in the film, right around the introduction of Sid. Talk about taking things way out of context.
** The second trailer has Sarge calling out Woody for ditching Buzz and pointing out "A good soldier never leaves a man behind!" This makes it seem Woody voluntarily went after Buzz under pressure from the fellow toys. This is all out of context with the actual film, where Sarge is really insulting Woody for ditching Buzz before Woody shuts him up, and Andy just takes Woody with him to Pizza Planet and Buzz follows him by hitching a ride in Andy's van. Sarge's line in the trailer is actually spoken earlier on, when he is helping a fallen comrade while preparing to get information on Andy's birthday presents.
** A TV spot has Buzz saying "I changed my laser from stun to kill" and Woody replying "Oh great, now we can blink them to death" edited into the scene where they are riding on RC and being chased by Sid's dog. In the film, however, these lines are actually said after Buzz and Woody encounter Sid's toys.
** Another TV spot goes out of its way to proclaim [[BlatantLies the movie was produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation]], even though Disney's only involvement was co-financing and releasing the film.
* NightmareFace: Sid holding the magnifying glass in front of his mouth after using it to burn a dot on Woody's forehead. The braces on his teeth don't exactly help.
* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: Done by the plastic toy soldiers near the start of the film, and later by Woody and Buzz to each other when they're attempting to catch up to Andy.
* NotInFrontOfTheKid:
-->'''Woody:''' The word I'm searching for, I can't say, because there's preschool toys present.
* NotQuiteFlight: Buzz's gliding is the former TropeNamer.
-->'''Woody:''' That wasn't flying! That was--falling with style!
* NumberTwo: Slinky is implied to be this to Woody before Buzz Lightyear becomes leader of the toys.
* ObliviouslyEvil: Sid to the toys.
* OhCrap: Quite a few of them.
** Woody has one when he realises he is about to get his comeuppance from Buzz for trying to knock him off.
** Woody when he hears Sid's voice behind him at Pizza Planet. Then again when the claw grabs Buzz in the crane game.
** Hannah when she realises Sid is going to destroy her Janie doll.
** Woody when the mutant toys first appear. He has wide eyes, shakes in fear, and has inability to form coherent speech.
** Buzz when he jumps off the banister in Sid's house and realises that no, he can't fly.
** Woody when he accidentally reveals Buzz's broken arm in front of Andy's toys.
** Sid when he hears ''his own name'' spoken by Woody. And then when the mutant toys come to life in front of him.
** Buzz and then Woody when they see Scud coming up behind them while on the moving truck.
** Woody after lighting the rocket, and [[RememberedTooLate realizing that the rocket will]] ''[[RememberedTooLate explode]]''.
** Potato Head near the end in the moving truck before RC crashes into him.
* OhCrapSmile: Woody and Buzz at the end when they hear Andy's next present is a puppy.
* PlotDrivenBreakdown: The RC car has enough pep to keep up with full-size cars on the street while carrying both Woody and Buzz, until they try to make a final push to catch up with the moving van. That's when his batteries finally die.
* PoesLaw: The filmmakers intended the scene with the toy soldiers making their way to the lookout point to be funny, since it was a typical war scene played straight with toys instead of humans. When it was shown to test audiences they took it just as seriously as the real thing.
* ProperlyParanoid: Buzz, curiously enough.
** When they head to Pizza Planet in a pizza truck, Buzz explains to Woody that they should use seat belts for their own safety. Woody suffers the consequences when he doesn't.
** After Woody tries to escape Sid's room through the open door, Buzz warns him that they don't know what's waiting for them outside. Woody ends up nearly being mauled by Scud.
* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: Sid is seen by many viewers, including [[http://kotaku.com/5501908/is-the-best-way-to-play-games-the-subversive-way Will Wright]], [[WebVideo/JeepersMedia Mike Mozart]], and the creators, as a kid with a great imagination. (In fact, many of the things Sid does to his toys were inspired by things ''the creators'' used to do to theirs.) Some would argue that the only reason he is given the antagonist treatment is because the movie is from a toy's point of view. However, he apparently wrecks ''all'' his sister's toys (the fact that the only dolls Hannah has left to play with are dismembered and/or decapitated, and that several of the mutant toys have doll legs and heads, shows that the pterodactyl thing was not an isolated incident). And a little boy playing with explosives ''unsupervised'' is pretty questionable, considering the rockets he was using are not even legal in some states.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis:
** Woody reminding Buzz: "YOU! ARE! A! TOYYYYYY!!!"
** Hannah's response to Sid's "What do you mean you don't know?" (referring to if his package had arrived in the mail yet) "I. Don't. ''Know.''"
%%** "I AM MRS. NESBITT!"
* RaidersOfTheLostParody: The film does a ShoutOut to the boulder scene with Buzz being chased by a rolling globe that gets knocked loose, not long before he falls out the window. They used the sound effect of the boulder rolling from the original film.
* RedAlert: Called by the Sergeant during the birthday party in response to the surprise present in the closet.
* RememberedTooLate: After Woody gets the rocket lit, he and Buzz are ecstatic that they can now catch up with the moving truck... only for Woody to remember seconds before takeoff that ''rockets '''explode'''''.
* ScareEmStraight: Woody and Sid's toys come alive to provide NightmareFuel for Sid before the climax, leading straight to his breakdown. This gives Sid the distinction of being the only human in the entire series to have witnessed the toys' anthropomorphic capacity, although the outcome implies that he'll just write it all off as temporary insanity.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Woody, when Buzz startles him after saying hello, and before Scud bites his leg.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: It seems to be an unwritten rule that the toys will not walk and talk (other than that their normal toy operation allows) when there are any humans present. Even [[TheLancer Buzz Lightyear]] adheres to the rule, even throughout the time that he believes that he's the [[CaptainSpaceDefenderofEarth real Buzz Lightyear]] (although this can probably be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] if you consider that he probably went with good old fashioned herd mentality by imitating the "natives" in order to continue surviving in a hostile environment). To save Buzz from Sid, however, Woody decides that it's time to break a few rules.
* SecurityCling: Woody to Buzz when facing the mutilated toys.
* SkeletonMotif: Sid, the closest thing to a "villain" in the movie, wears a skull T-shirt.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: The series' main cast includes a young boy's toy collection, with predictably male-oriented rather than girls' toys. Bo Peep is the only female in the cast, a domestic woman and SatelliteLoveInterest with no part in the main action (and she seems to belong to Andy's sister's part of their shared room). ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 3]]'' even out the gender inequality, though not by much. Even though ''Toy Story 3'' has many more female characters than the other two, it should be worth mentioning that [[spoiler:Andy got rid of Bo Peep]].
* SolarPoweredMagnifyingGlass: Sid uses a magnifying glass to burn Woody's forehead while interrogating him.
* StockScream: When Buzz is knocked out of the window it's definitely the Wilhelm Scream that he makes.
* StrappedToABomb:
** Sid duct-tapes Buzz Lightyear to a model rocket and plans to launch him (the rocket will explode when it reaches its maximum height). Luckily, Woody saves him from this horrible fate, but later uses the rocket (with Buzz still attached to it) as part of a cunning plan.
** Sid's introduction has him blowing up a Combat Carl (a CaptainErsatz Franchise/GIJoe) with a firecracker.
* SuckECheeses: Averted. Pizza Planet is a ''really'' cool place, to the point that a lot of fans wish it were real[[note]][[{{Defictionalization}} There was, in fact, a counter service Pizza Planet]] at Disney's Hollywood Studios for almost a couple of decades, but it was nowhere near the scope of the film[[/note]].
* SurvivalMantra: Woody has a bit of a freakout in Sid's room.
-->'''Woody:''' There's no place like home! Theresnoplacelikehome!
* TakeCareOfTheKids: When Woody is grabbed by Sid's dog Scud, he tells Buzz to "take care of Andy for me." Buzz [[NoOneGetsLeftBehind rescues him instead]].
* TakeMyHand: [[LoyalAnimalCompanion Slinky Dog]] to Woody as he's trying to pull him into the truck.
* {{Technobabble}}: When Sid talks about a "double-bypass brain transplant."
-->'''Buzz:''' [[CaptainObvious I don't believe that man's ever been to medical school.]]
* TemptingFate:
** Woody, mocking Buzz. "It's safer in the cockpit than the cargo bay... WhatAnIdiot." And no points for guessing who was right.
** "Oh, now, Buzz. What can Andy possibly get that is worse than you?" [[YouJustHadToSayIt Cue the sound of a puppy barking,]] and Woody and Buzz's [[OhCrapSmile "Oh Crap" Smiles]].
* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry: Rex's reaction when the toys realize Woody is innocent at the end of the first movie:
-->'''Rex:''' [[SarcasmMode Great! Now I have guilt!]]
* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: Mr. Potato Head, after Woody accidentally knocks Buzz out a window.
-->'''Woody:''' C'mon, we're friends, right? Potato Head?\\
'''Mr. Potato Head:''' That's ''Mr.'' Potato Head to you, you murderer!
* ThisIsNoTimeToPanic: "This is the ''perfect'' time to panic!"
* ThoseTwoGuys: [[TheSpeechless Snake]] and Robot.
* TomatoInTheMirror: Buzz Lightyear [[WrongGenreSavvy genuinely believes himself to be the real space hero]], and that he only crash landed in Andy's room. He realizes that he's just a toy when he sees a ''Buzz Lightyear'' commercial on the TV, which sends him into a HeroicBSOD for a while. This proves that Woody was right about him all along.
* UnderTheMistletoe: Woody and Bo at the end. The mistletoe is held by her sheep.
* VaderBreath: Buzz's breathing when he first appears on the bed, when the camera adopts his point-of-view from inside his helmet.
* VillainsOutShopping: Sid, while in the middle of torturing Woody.
-->'''Sid:''' Where are your rebel friends now? [[EvilLaugh Ha Ha Ha!]]\\
'''Sid's Mom:''' ''[from off-screen]'' Sid! Your Pop-Tarts are ready!\\
'''Sid:''' All right!
* VillainyFreeVillain: Sid mangles his sister's dolls but otherwise doesn't really do anything bad. How was he to know that his toys are alive and can feel pain? Though taking his sister's toys and mutilating them without her permission isn't particularly nice. Hanna doesn't ''want'' a tea party with headless ladies...
* VisualInnuendo: When Mr. Potato Head makes a pessimistic statement about Woody not being worried about the move due to being Andy's Favorite Toy since Kindergarten, Slinky defends Woody, to which Mr. Potato Head quietly replies by removing his mouth and tapping his backside with it.[[note]]He's calling him an ass-kisser. Ironically, when Buzz introduces himself, Mr. Potato Head becomes the biggest ass-kissing (figuratively speaking, of course) fan of him, totally buying into his [[WrongGenreSavvy delusional mannerisms]].[[/note]]
* VisualPun:
** As follows:
--->'''Woody:''' Buzz, can you get over here and give me a hand?\\
''[Buzz, without a word, tosses his severed arm up to Woody and goes back to angsting.]''\\
'''Woody:''' Hahaha, that's very funny Buzz... ''[with annoyance]'' THIS IS SERIOUS!!
** [[http://cdn3.whatculture.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/hooker.png The fishing pole toy that sports a hook and a pair of sexy lady legs]] is a ''[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar hooker]]''.
* VomitDiscretionShot: Rex gets this after he sees Woody waving Buzz's dismembered arm--a rare example in which it makes sense, seeing as toys ''can't'' vomit.
* WainscotSociety: The toys appear to have a fairly well-developed society of sorts, which only operates when humans aren't lookingóbut they necessarily also take a keen interest in human activities, although they can't easily interact actively with humans.
* WeHaveWaysOfMakingYouTalk: Sid quotes the line verbatim when he tortures Woody with a magnifying glass (thankfully, without attempting a German accent).
* WhatDoesThisButtonDo: Rex asks this about one of the buttons on [[CaptainSpaceDefenderOfEarth Buzz Lightyear's]] suit.
* WhatTheHellHero: All of the toys are disgusted over Woody trying to get rid of Buzz just because the former is worried he won't be Andy's favorite toy anymore. Mr. Potato Head ''especially'' gets pissed at Woody for throwing Buzz out of the window, accident or not.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: The other toys to Woody towards the end.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Woody to Buzz after the latter's HeroicBSOD: "Why would Andy want you? Look at you! You're a Buzz Lightyear! Any other toy would give up its moving parts just to ''be'' you!"
