What Makes Him Pure Good?

Toy Story

  • He helped several of the toys with their problems, such as teaching Rex how to roar and helping one of the dolls comb its hair.
  • Upon seeing a Combat Carl strapped to an explosive device by Sid, Buzz attempts to go and rescue the toy and mourns his death.
  • During his debut, he's initially appeared to be cocky and delusional and even rivaling Woody. After he realized that he's actually a toy, he decided to accept being one and become a loyal best friend to Woody.
  • Though he initially becomes depressed and bitter after learning he wasn't a space ranger, after Woody makes him realize what it meant to be a toy and how much Andy loved him, he overcomes his existential crisis and helps Woody escape.
  • After Woody helps others to free Buzz, the two respectfully shake hands.
  • When Woody gets attacked by Sid's dog Scud, Buzz rushes in to save his friend.

Toy Story 2

  • He tries to help Woody find his hat before he goes to camp with Andy.
  • When Woody is taken by Al, he runs after Woody and attempts to rescue him himself, nearly succeeding before he loses his grip on Al's car.
  • He discovers where Woody was being held and leads the mission to rescue him, refusing to rest or relax until he was back in Andy's room.
  • He reluctantly left Woody after he refused to join them to return to Andy's house, and is relieved to hear Woody try to come home with them.
  • He convinces Woody to return to Andy when he wanted to go to Japan and be put on display in a museum.
  • He goes with Woody to save Jessie despite not knowing her at all, risking his life to do so.

Toy Story 3

  • He tries to comfort the other toys about being put in the attic and ensure them everything would be alright.
  • He tries to consider what is best for the entire gang of toys, and after seeing the positives of Sunnyside Daycare and believing that Andy had thrown them away, he tries to convince Woody it would be best to stay at daycare. He then attempts to amicably part with Woody by shaking hands.
  • He tries to warn Rex when he realizes the other toys were scared of the toddlers.
  • When Lotso tells him to let his friends stay in the Caterpillar Room and go to the Butterfly Room alone, Buzz refuses and says they should be together as a family.
  • While Buzz cages his friends and is fairly abusive towards them and is genuinely loyal to Lotso, this is because he was under the influence of his demo mode and believed his friends were evil, making this as Lotso’s actions, not Buzz’s.
  • When he's in Spanish mode, Buzz goes out of his way to save Jessie, and when a TV is about to fall on them, he throws Jessie out of the way and lets himself get hit by the TV, demonstrating his selfless nature.
  • He works with Woody to rescue Lotso from the shredder despite everything the latter forced them to go through. He and Woody even help Lotso up the ladder to give him a chance at pushing the button and saving the other toys, though Lotso leaves them to die in the flames.
    • After he and the rest of Andy's toys are saved by the Little Green Men, Buzz doesn't join in with Slinky and Hamm plotting their revenge on Lotso for leaving them to die in the incinerator despite his pity towards him long gone.
  • He affectionately places an arm around Woody's shoulder after Andy leaves.

Toy Story 4

  • He assists Woody in attempting to take Forky back from Gabby Gabby at the Second Chance Antiques store.
  • Unlike Bo Peep and the other toys leaving Woody alone for his behavior, Buzz still shows loyalty to him and never leaves his side.
  • He masterminds a scheme to ensure Bonnie would realize that she left Woody behind at the store, forcing the RV to return there so he could rescue Woody.
  • Despite all of the trouble they went through in rescuing Woody, he understands that he feels unable to leave Bo Peep and supports his decision to move on from Bonnie. He then hugs Woody before he leaves with Bo Peep.

Trivia

  • Buzz is the very first Pure Good hero of a Disney/Pixar film, because Toy Story was Pixar's very first film. He is also the first Pure Good hero of a CGI film, because Toy Story was the world's first computer-animated feature film.
  • He, Bo Peep and Barbie are the only Toy Story heroes who are Pure Good.
  • It's unknown whether his Lightyear film counterpart or his tv version counts as Pure Good.
