|~ Sid after the Combat Carl toy is destroyed.|
Sidney "Sid" Phillips is the main antagonist of Pixar's very 1st full-length animated feature film Toy Story, and a cameo character in Pixar's 11th full-length animated feature film Toy Story 3. He is an 11-year-old boy who destroys toys for his own amusement. However, he stopped destroying toys after he got Woody and Buzz Lightyear, the film's main protagonists.
He was voiced by Erik von Detten in the films (excluding the second and fourth film), and portrayed by Rachel Fischer in the musical.
Sid is a fair-skinned boy with a brown buzz cut, hazel green eyes, and braces. He usually wears a black T-shirt with a white skull with blue jeans and black sneakers. In Toy Story 3, he has a small growing beard, and wears a dyed green cap, green goggles with mirror effects, headphones, a high visibility vest and a gray shirt underneath his T-shirt.

Mr. Potato Head: That ain't no happy child.
Rex: He tortures toys, just for fun!
|~ Rex and Mr. Potato Head telling Buzz about Sid after seeing him for the first time.|
Even after the events of the first film, Sid remained mostly the same (especially his love of heavy metal) in his adulthood, and eventually became a garbage man.

|~ Sid after he "wins" Woody and Buzz.|
After putting Pterosaur's head on Janie Doll's body, he opens up the door and showed Hannah. Scared, she ran off to report to their mother. Sid threw the mutant toy onto the ground and ran after her, claiming that Hannah was lying. With Sid gone, Woody explored his room to search for a way out, but found the door locked and unable to escape. Trying to find another way out, he then discovered that Sid has taken toys apart and assembled them back together in weird combinations, much to Woody's horror as Buzz tries to call Star Command to send reinforcements for help.
Sid Tortures Woody

The Big One

|~ Sid delaying the launch.|
Unfortunately for Sid, he is forced to delay the launch due to "adverse weather conditions at the launch site" when a rainstorm hits the neighborhood, giving Woody and Buzz time to reconcile overnight where Woody tells Buzz the joy of being a toy, which allows Buzz to gain his spirit of being a toy and allows himself and Woody to escape Sid's house when they see the moving truck near Andy's old house next door.
|“||The Toys! The Toys are alive! (sees Hannah's Sally doll) Nice Dolly. *screams* (Hannah Phillips: What's wrong Sid? Don't you want to play with Sally?)||„|

Toy Story 3
10 years after Andy's toys have rescued Woody and defeated Al and Stinky Pete in Toy Story 2, Sid makes a cameo in Toy Story's second sequel Toy Story 3, where he is now an adult and has become a garbage man. He is easily recognized by his black skull T-shirt. In spite of the rather undesirable nature of Sid's job, he appears to be happy and content, as he is singing and dancing to a metal song he likes while going about his rounds.
He first appears when he picked the garbage near Andy's house. As Woody tries to recuse Buzz and the others (who are trapped in a garbage bag that Andy's mom put one the crib while under the impression it was trash), he hides behind the mailbox post to prevent being seen by Sid, who rides off in the garbage truck.
Later, after Woody, Buzz, and their friends end up at the dump, Sid later appears again and Woody, Buzz, and the rest of Andy's remaining toys hitch up a ride on his garbage truck to get back to Andy's house. It is unknown whether he still believes that toys are alive or if he has suppressed the memories of it a long time ago.
Monsters, Inc.: Laugh Factory
Sid appears as one of the main antagonists of the Monsters, Inc.: Laugh Factory comic miniseries, though his name is not given during his appearances. He first appears in issue 3, "Toy Worry", where he enters Boo's room through her closet while holding a duffel bag. Claiming he is running from monsters, he asks if he can hide, with Boo agreeing, believing it is a game of hide and seek. James P. Sullivan and Mike Wazowski then enter the room looking for Sid, revealing that he has discovered the door network and is using it to steal toys from kids, thus threatening the monster's ability to make kids happy as well as the Monster World in general. Unable to find him, Mike and Sulley leave, and Sid comes out of hiding to thank Boo before leaving himself, though Boo realizes that he had stolen her Jessie doll, and chases after him in her monster disguise.
Boo begins to chase after Sid throughout Monsters, Inc, preparing to tackle him after hitching a ride on George Sanderson's back. However, before she can do so, she is grabbed and scolded by Sulley, giving Sid enough time to escape towards a ventilation shaft, with Mike and Boo coming after him. Mike ends up getting stuck in the vent while Sulley is distracted by Mrs. Nesbitt, though the latter manages to finally apprehend Sid by capturing him in Boo's monster disguise. Mike and Sulley turn Sid over to the CDA, who confesses that, after seeing toys come to life and attack him (referencing the events of Toy Story), he was trying to prevent such a thing from happening to any other children by stealing their toys, while also making money off of any toys that were actually valuable. However, the monsters don't believe his story, and toss him back into the Human World through his sister's door.
In the next and final issue, Sid uses the door technology again to return to Monstropolis and breaks Randall Boggs and Henry James Waternoose III out of prison, who both offer to give him plans for the monsters' door-travelling technology (which he plans to get rich off of in the human world) in exchange for revenge on Sulley and Mike. Sid and the others then kidnap Sulley as he is leaving Boo's house (also having abducted Mike and Celia earlier), not knowing that Boo had snuck in on Sulley's back. As Randall, Waternoose and a mostly uninterested Sid are deciding on how they will enact their revenge, the monsters try to make Boo laugh in order to reactivate the door so they can escape. The villains quickly realize what their captives are trying to do and attempt to stop them, though fail to keep Boo from laughing at Sulley and Mike being suspended by their legs, resulting in them going after Celia as she escapes with Boo, searching the neighborhood in pursuit of another active door they can use. Celia and Boo end up bouncing into another child's bedroom after evading Waternoose and Randall, where they are both accosted by Sid until one of the snakes in Celia's hair bites his nose, allowing them to escape through the door. Sid, Randall and Waternoose then go through the same door after them, only to be confronted by the CDA instead. As a result, Waternoose and Randall are sent back to prison, while Sid is sent back to his own world, with the monsters hoping that he's had enough of them by now and thus won't decide on coming back.
- Sid is the very first main antagonist of a Disney/Pixar film, because Toy Story was Pixar's very first film. Sid is also the first main antagonist of a CGI film, because Toy Story was the world's first computer-animated feature film.
- In a 2016 interview with some of the key animators of Toy Story, they stated that their primary influence for the character Sid was actually one of the animator's long time childhood friend, Ryan Newbert.
- Sid is the only main antagonist of the Toy Story film series to be a human, as Stinky Pete, Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear, and Gabby Gabby, the respective main antagonists of Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3, and Toy Story 4, are all toys. The closest thing the original Toy Story had to any toy villains was Mr. Potato Head.
- Sid and Emperor Zurg are the only two classic Toy Story villains to appear in Toy Story 3 (though Sid only appears as a cameo in Toy Story 3).
- They are also the only two Toy Story villains who are related to the heroes.
- The scene where Sid demands Woody tell him the location of a rebel base parodies the scene in Star Wars: A New Hope where Grand Moff Tarkin demands Princess Leia reveal the location of the rebel base.
- Sid is the only known human in the Toy Story quadrilogy that knows the toys are alive.
- So far, Toy Story 4 is the only movie of the franchise where Sid doesn't appear nor is mentioned. However, given that while they searched for Bonnie's van, Woody takes advantage to tell Forky the time he spend with Andy, including when Buzz and him first met, it might be possible that Woody told Forky about Sid, albeit offscreen.
- In a video, Chatter Telephone, one of the characters introduced in Toy Story 3, told Woody the garbage man is Sid, and Lee Unkrich, the director of Toy Story 3, confirmed it.
- As further proof, Sid's name appears during the film credits while Woody and the others read the note from Ken in Bonnie Anderson's house.
