- "We can't focus on what's going wrong. There's always a way to turn things around."
In Inside Out, Joy is shown to glow, a feature not with any of the other emotions. She is tall, slender, and she has a light amber body, salmon pink lips, messy short sky-blue hair, azure blue eyes, light chartreuse sleeveless dress with blue flowers and white stripes.
As her name implies, Joy is known for her nearly endless positivity, her charge to keep Riley happy no matter what. She acts as the leader of the emotions, hoping to keep the peace amongst the emotions. While understanding the purpose of each emotion, she has a difficulty understanding Sadness despite knowing her the longest. Because of this, she goes to great lengths to keep Sadness away from the controls and does everything in her power to keep the maximum quota of memories yellow (happy), becoming disappointed when Riley's first day in San Francisco resulted in a high amount of green (disgust), red (anger), and purple (fear) memories.
She shares many of the quirks Riley and her emotions share (like hating broccoli). Like her other emotions, is capable of her own spectrum of emotions as well, such as when she felt true despair and sadness when lost in the Memory Dump.
Like the other emotions, she cares for Riley deeply and is devoted to her well-being.
Powers and Abilities Edit
While manning the controls to Riley's mind, every thought, memory and action she instigates are always happy ones.
She is also shown a few times to skate along the ground with her bare-feet, mimicking Riley's ice-skating moves.
While it is never stated outright, it is implied that she does not need to sleep, volunteering for dream duty one night and spending all of her time the next few days trying to make it back to headquarters with no sign of fatigue.
Role in the Crossover Edit
Although Joy does not usually appear in the crossover, may appear both as an emotion of Riley as a humanized version of it, which is related to Riley or be her friend.
Because of their same personalities, Joy and Anna would get along quite well and relate to each other.
