That is not brightly colored or shaped like a dinosaur. Hold on, guys. IT'S BROCCOLI!

Disgust is a character in Inside Out. She is one of the original five emotions inside the mind of Riley Andersen.


Inside Out[]

Disgust smile

Disgust was formed when Riley was very young. Her job is to keep Riley safe from disgusting things, like broccoli, which Riley refused to eat as a toddler until Dad made it into an airplane.

When Riley was eleven, her father got a new job in San Francisco, the family relocated there. Disgust was immediately disgusted by the new house, which had a dead mouse in the corner.

On Riley's first day at her new school, Disgust's job was to make sure Riley simultaneously stood out and blended in. Joy tried to get Riley to talk to some cool girls, but Disgust stopped her, saying that wasn't how things were done. When Riley, on the teacher's request, talked to her new class about her life in Minnesota and began crying, Disgusted noted the cool girls in the class whispering to each other. This formed a new Core Memory, the first sad one.

When Joy and Sadness were sucked out of Headquarters, the remaining emotions decided to do their best to replace Joy and make Riley happy. Unfortunately, without Joy and with all of Riley's Islands of Personality deactivated due to the loss of her Core Memories, Riley struggled. Disgust tried to replace Joy, but ended up making Riley sound sarcastic while talking to Mom.

When Anger had the idea to make Riley go back to Minnesota to make new happy Core Memories, Disgust admitted that Riley was happier in Minnesota, but Fear got Anger to sleep on it. When they woke up to find Fear curled up under the console, Anger decided to plant the idea in Riley's head.

As Riley got to the bus station, they started to realize what a bad idea it was, but were unable to get the idea out of Riley's head. They realized they were unable to make Riley feel anything. When Sadness and Joy returned to Headquarters, Disgust goaded Anger to make him Angry enough for flames to come out of his head, which she used to cut a hole in the glass, allowing them to come back inside. Then they were surprised when Joy had Sadness take control of the console, which she used to get Riley to get off the bus and go back home, then tell her parents how she was feeling about San Francisco.

Over the next year, the emotions worked together to form mixed emotion Core Memories for Riley, forming new Islands of Personality. Disgust was entranced by Fashion Island. The Mind Workers also installed a new, improved console, which included a button labelled, "Puberty," which Joy said was probably not important.

Riley's First Date?[]

When Mom tried to probe to see if Jordan and Riley were going on a date or just going out as friends, Disgust was embarrassed by Mom's use of slang.

Mind Candy[]

Disgust looked at herself in the mirror and ran away gagging when she saw broccoli in her teeth. When she found a spot on the wall, she showed it to Fear, who tried to clean it, but only made it worse. While jumping on a trampoline, Disgust was at first bored, but then started to gag. Disgust watched as Anger, Fear, and Joy piled on top of each over so Joy could reach an upper shelf and put a memory there. Once that was done, Sadness pulled a rope to reveal the shape of a Christmas Tree.

Inside Out 2[]



Disgust, is squeamish, sarcastic, sassy, and loves fashion.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • According to Pete Docter, her appearance is based on that of broccoli, which, ironically, is what she, Riley, and the other emotions hate and Pete Docter himself, loves.[source?]
  • In the first clips shown at the 2013 DisneyD23 Expo, Disgust wore a purple dress, had longer hair, and did not have long eyelashes. This version is referred to as Purple Disgust in this wiki.[source?]
  • In one of the first concept drawings, Disgust was, in the planning stages, portrayed as a male character during production, but was later switched to a female character.[source?]
  • Disgust, unlike Joy and Sadness, has visible eyelashes.
  • The buckle on her waist belt is shaped like a "D" to represent the first letter in her name.
  • According to Chris Sarsaki, the character artist designated for Inside Out, the reason that Disgust has a scarf around her neck is to hide her retches.[1]
  • Disgust's favorite island is Fashion Island.[source?]
  • In Disney Infinity 3.0, she hints that Riley's dad makes omelettes with broccoli on Sundays, to her distaste.
  • Official Description: Disgust is highly opinionated, extremely honest and prevents Riley from getting poisoned — both physically and socially. She keeps a careful eye on the people, places and things that Riley comes into contact with — whether that's broccoli or last year's fashion trend. Disgust always has the best of intentions and refuses to lower her standards.
  • Apparently Disgust, like Riley, has a crush on Lance Slashblade, as revealed in the second film.

"Well, I just saved our lives. Yeah. You're welcome."

"We have a major problem."

"Duh, tell me something I don't know."

"That's it. I'm done."

"On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this day an F."

"Riley is acting so weird. Why is she acting so weird?"

"Joy would know what to do."

"Great idea. Anger, Fear, Disgust, how are we supposed to be happy?"

(To Fear) "Uh, because I'm not Joy."

"I'm done. You pretend to be Joy."

(upon a young Riley being fed broccoli) "OK, caution. There is a dangerous smell here, people. Hold on. What is that?"

"The grape touched the ground. It's poison."

"You know what else barely touches the ground? Stray dogs, toenail clippings, road kill, hippies, dung beetles..."

(while bantering with Joy about whether or not to eat a grape that fell) "Ugh, Don't even go there... You're evil... Shut your mouth!"

"Emotions can't quit, genius!"

(sarcastic) "Yeah, Joy. We could be lying on the dirty floor in a bag."

"When I'm through, Riley will look so good, the other kids will look at their own outfits and barf."

"Find your happy place, guys!"

"Whoa! No way! We are not eating that!"

"Okay, we've got a group of cool girls at two o'clock."

(discussing with Joy, upon Riley noticing cool girls) "Yeah, we want to be friends with them. Are you kidding? We're not talking to them. We want them to like us."

(upon spotting cool girls whispering) "Cool kids whispering at three o'clock!"

(while in Cloudy Daze stage of Disney Infinity 3.0) "Riley's old enough for me to know there's something not right about this place."

"Okay, this is getting beyond ridiculous."

"Let the professional handle this."

"Oh yeah, this is totally broken."
