This article is about the character Jordan from Inside Out. For other characters, see Jordan (disambiguation).

Jordan is a minor character from the Disney/Pixar film, Inside Out and a major character in the short, Riley's First Date?


Inside Out

Jordan only appears at the end of the film when he bumps into Riley, who is about to enter the ice ring. He drops his water bottle and Riley picks it up for him. Inside his mind, his own emotions freak out with a large klaxon alarm shouting "GIRL!", possibly hinting at what is to come for Riley's own emotions in the coming years. He is also mentioned by Riley's teacher during the credits where he is heard struggling to answer her question.

Riley's First Date?

Jordan returns in the short where he takes Riley skating. While waiting for Riley, Riley's father develops animosity towards Jordan, believing that the two are going on a date. Riley's father tries intimidating the boy with a stern, silent glare, but Jordan remained oblivious to it. When questioned on his interests, Jordan gives a vague answer, which Riley's father interprets as back talk and prepares to throw the boy out. However, the two end up bonding over their experiences in a band and love for music, dancing to "Back in Black" by AC/DC. At the end of the short, the misunderstanding is cleared and Jordan leaves with Riley on good terms with her father.



  • Jordan's memory orbs are monochromatic (each has only one color) in both Inside Out and Riley's First Date?, implying that he's still emotionally immature.
  • Bill Hader, the voice of Jordan's Joy, is also the voice of Riley's Fear.
