- “Hi, everyone, I'm Olaf! And I like warm hugs!”
Olaf is a small snowman with a tall, irregularly shaped head, a small midsection with one black rock in the middle, and a squat bottom section with two black rocks, which look like buttons on a shirt. He has two stubby feet, three twig hairs, one large tooth, and a nose made out of a carrot. He also has two arms made of twigs, which can bend and move with no effort even when not attached to his body. He is able to rearrange his body parts at will with no consequences. His appearance resembles a snowman with the same name that Elsa built for Anna when they were children.
Olaf is the epitome of a childlike personality. He's upbeat, goofy, naive, brutally honest, and the slightest bit sarcastic. It is clear that he does not understand the world around him, as he dreams of experiencing summer without realizing that the sun would melt him. He also may have some miscommunications with people, as he mistakenly thought that Kristoff's name was Sven, after Anna didn't recognize his insult toward Kristoff i.e "Funky-looking donkey." Although he is outgoing and tries to be everyone's friend, he also doesn't sugarcoat his feelings and will say exactly how he feels all the time. He also loves warm hugs, as he will helpfully declare as soon as he meets someone.
Despite his childlike behavior, however, he also seems to possess some wisdom, and is fiercely loyal to his friends. He considers himself a "love expert," and follows through on that claim, as he is the one to tell Anna that true love is putting someone else's needs above your own. He also stays by her side when she is freezing, even when he almost melts by a fireplace, and later, getting blown apart by a blizzard.
In Olaf's Frozen Adventure, he further demonstrates his loyalty by going out of his way to make Anna and Elsa happy. He is determined to find a holiday tradition for the sisters to share (once again being incredibly naive when going about it), and is devastated and depressed when he believes he has failed. It is one of the few times that Olaf has ever been seen to be sad, the other time being in the film when he thinks Anna has died.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
While Olaf does not possess magical powers, he can perform some impossible feats as a living snowman. He can take his body apart and rearrange it at will, and seems impervious to any type of physical harm (including literally getting impaled by a giant icicle, something he merely jokes about when it happens). He is also capable of surviving in any weather without melting thanks to the "personal flurry" that Elsa created for him.
Role in CrossoverEdit
Much like in the movie, Olaf is usually included in stories soley for comic relief and rarely holds any weight to a situation.
With Olaf's niave, positive personality would be considered off-putting to the cynical, attention-starved Viking, not helped by the fact that Olaf is a talking snowman. Toothless would have the same neutral position as Sven, but is more likely to ignore Olaf due to his carnivorous diet.
Being a construct of winter magic, Olaf would most likely be able to see Jack Frost in the same manner as any animal would. Jack's playful side would allow himself to humor the snowman, but would most likely keep his attention on Elsa.
Though the events of Brave would allow her to swallow a talking snowman, her patience would slowly wain from the snowman's child-like approach to everything.
After a small freak-out, Rapunzel would immediately connect with the snowman, sharing their childlike wonder and curiosity like children playing in the summer sun.
