The proposal folder shown to Buena Vista included plans for a world based on Toy Story in the original Kingdom Hearts. For Kingdom Hearts II a model of Buzz Lightyear and Woody Pride were created for a similar purpose but according to the series' director Tetsuya Nomura, there was never a chance to present them to Disney so the idea was scrapped. Both the world and the characters finally made their appearance in Kingdom Hearts III as party members in Toy Box.
Kingdom Hearts III
Buzz is a Space Ranger action figure. He has a large build and a very prominent chin. His head and neck are covered in a tight purple cowl. He has a white space suit with a green chest plate featuring red, green, and blue buttons on the right side and a round red button on his left used to deploy and collapse the wings from his jet pack. His right arm ordinarily has a light bulb that flashes red to simulate a laser, however during the events of Kingdom Hearts III, it is replaced by a working laser. He has a collapsible, clear dome helmet that is controlled by the purple knobs on the side of it. There is a black coil around his waist.
Buzz is cautious and skeptical following the disappearance of his friends. He distrusts Sora, Donald, and Goofy initially, and believes the best solution is to wait in Andy's room for his return, rather than seek an answer.
Kingdom Hearts III
Buzz Lightyear first appeared in 1995, in Pixar's first feature film Toy Story, voiced by Tim Allen, and has since appeared in its sequels, as well as several television specials and shorts. The character also appeared in Disney/Pixar's animated film Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins, and the television series Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, which both are about the character which the toy in Toy Story is based on.
In the 1995 film, Buzz Lightyear is the newest toy in the collection of a boy named Andy. He initially believes that he is the real Buzz Lightyear, a space ranger on a mission to defeat his arch-nemesis, the evil Emperor Zurg, and repeatedly attempts to return to space. Woody, Andy's favorite toy, is jealous about the amount of time Andy now spends with Buzz and tried to hide him from Andy. In the process, he gets them both lost and in the possession of Sid, the toy-torturer who lives next door. In Sid's house, Buzz sees a commercial for the Buzz Lightyear action figure and finally realizes he is just a toy, sending him into a depression. With Woody's help, he regains his composure and the two of them escape back to Andy and become close friends.
