"Rawr! Ha ha! Sometimes I even scare myself."
-Sulley, when placed on the Disney Infinity Base

Sulley is the main protagonist of Monsters, Inc. and the deuteragonist of it's prequel, Monsters University. He is a starter and playable character in Disney INFINITY. Sulley was released on August 18th at launch, and a Crystal Figure of Sulley was released on October 11 in Canada and on October 13 everywhere else exclusively at Toys "R" Us.


Sulley is a giant, furry, blue, friendly and sweet monster. He has blue eyes, thick dark blue eyebrows, and a dark blue nose. He has one tannish horn on each side of his head. Sulley has purple spots all over his body along with a lighter blue belly. He has round spikes down his back and on his tail. Sulley has dark black claws on his fingers and toes. He is normally seen without clothes.


One of Sulley's abilities is to scare people. By scaring, he can activate triggers in his respective playset that will help him in many instances. Sulley otherwise relies on weapons like the Toilet Paper Launcher, as well as a shoulder charge. He has also demonstrated many instances of great strength and endurance.


Sulley in Disney infinity is based on his Monsters University appearance, quoting references to the film and looks.

When the art team first started drawing Sulley and Mike, they didn't know that they were working on Monsters University instead of Monsters, Inc., so their earliest concept art depicts the older versions of the characters.[1]


  • His model number is 1000002, while his Crystal variant's is 1000032.
  • Sulley is one of the three characters in the Disney Infinity Starter Pack. The other two being Mr. Incredible and Captain Jack Sparrow.
    • Interestingly he's also the only one out of the three Starter Pack characters from 1.0 who did not get a costume power disc in 2.0.
  • Sulley is the first 1.0 character to have confirmed locomotion in 2.0, that being a super-jump.
  • In Disney Infinity: 3.0 Edition, the subtitles strangely do not cover his lines.
    • The same goes with every 1.0 figure. this will be fixed in a later update.
