- "It's not brightly-colored or shaped like a dinosaur. Hold on, guys... it's broccoli!"
- 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.
Disgust is one of the five emotions controlling Riley's mind and helping her. She is first seen when Bill Andersen starts to feed broccoli to his daughter.
When their leader, Joy and another emotion, Sadness, literally get lost in Riley's mind, she and the other emotions have to keep Riley's head on straight until Joy and Sadness get home. However, things go wrong sooner or later, they even decide to make Riley run away, even though Fear tells them how wrong that idea is. She possibly belittles Sadness to a neutral degree due to her superficial teen attitude.
When Joy and Sadness reach headquarters, Anger tries to break the glass with a chair, but to no avail. Getting an idea, Disgust gets Anger to ignite his fire, and then, after putting on a welding mask, she uses him as a blowtorch to burn a hole in the glass for Joy and Sadness to climb through.
Disgust returns in the short along with the other emotions. She displays absolute disgust over Riley's mom speaking in slang.
Disgust appears in Disney INFINITY's third installment as a playable character. However, Mindy Kaling did not reprise the role, as John Vignocchi explained that her agent said she was too busy.
Disgust was recently added in the 1.5.0 update and is unlocked after reaching level 126. Her ability is to cause memories of the same color to disappear when hit.
- 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.
- In the first clips shown at the 2013 D23 Expo, Disgust wore a purple dress, had longer hair, didn't wear lipstick, and did not have long eyelashes.
- 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.
- The buckle on her waist belt is shaped like a "D" to represent the first letter in her name.
- During a stage where the emotion all had human names, Disgust was going to be called Nadia or Gretchen.
