Just before his deathCharacter Information: His entry on the Disney wikiPersonality:
Kind, selfless, devoted, optimistic, caring, supportive...basically Tadashi is one of the nicest, most helpful people you’ll ever meet.
And he has been from a young age. After losing both parents before the age of 10, Tadashi had to grow up very fast, no longer having to be just a big brother but also a sort of parental figure to his younger brother, to make up for their maternal aunt’s lack of parenting skills. It was up to him to keep Hiro from withdrawing when he was bullied for being intelligent, as well as to cheer his aunt up when she was reminded of the loss of her siblings or to give her a hand when she wasn’t sure what to do when it came to taking care of the boys.
Generally, Tadashi is a very selfless person, always attempting to make sure that everyone around him--or at least those he knows and loves--is safe and happy before worrying about his own well-being. He always put his brother before himself as a child, put the well-being of all the strangers he hoped to help before him while building and programming Baymax, and put his own life on the line to run into a burning building to rescue a beloved professor. In the case of Baymax, it took 84 tests (and a severe lack of sleep; the tests might have been consecutive) to get the robot to start up properly.
Baymax also one of the ways Tadashi demonstrates how driven and determined he is. He wants to help people so much that he’s willing to pour all the time and energy he has into developing and completing that particular project, making sure most, if not all of the kinks are ironed out. Also his optimism, as he states that he’s not going to give up until he gets done what he wants to. He demonstrates this with Hiro as well, not letting Hiro give up when the younger boy hit an inventing roadblock. He also believes that if something doesn’t work out quite right the first time or a dead end is hit, it’s best to ‘look at it from a different angle’ and either change the method or way of thinking to get things on track again.
While Tadashi usually plays the more ‘mature but good-natured’ older brother, he has his moments of dork, either where he’ll be overexcited or just silly. He has a decent, if dry, sense of humor, noticable when he finds his friend Fred’s method of recycling underwear (normal, backwards, inside-out normal, then inside-out backwards) ‘both awesome and disgusting’ and responds to Hiro’s lack of ideas for a robotics project to showcase with a comment about how sad it is that Hiro is ‘washed up at 14’. He also mentions in lieu of anything serious, that his brother’s fly was down the entire time he was presenting said robotics project in front of a crowd. While working on Baymax, he runs around the room and kisses Baymax’s camera when the robot finally boots itself up correctly. It's also implied that he was possibly messing around and purposely programmed parts of Baymax's code that were intended as a joke, one being his suggestion that he defibrulate Hiro after the boy accuses Baymax of giving him a heart attack and later his insistence that Hiro not swim for an hour after eating.
Tadashi might be kind and selfless and all that, but he’s not without his flaws. Partly as a result of having to grow up and be a brother-parent, he worries more than he has to about his friends and loved ones, especially Hiro. And when it comes to Hiro, his frustration sometimes gets the better of him, where he loses his patience and actually becomes upset enough to scold the kid instead of offering advice. The best instance is when he rescues Hiro from one of the botfights--he first asks if Hiro is unhurt just before hitting him a few times and berating him for being an idiot. He also gets particularly upset whenever Hiro seems to dismiss their parents’ death and aunt’s worry for the two of them as unimportant. Also while he might seem to be more intelligent than his brother in some ways, as a child, Tadashi was actually a little jealous because he considered Hiro much more intelligent than him
. Nothing ultimately came of the feelings because Tadashi eventually came to accept it and put energy towards getting Hiro to actually apply his abilities. Because of this, he gets upset as an adult when Hiro apparently refuses to do that.
In a way, Tadashi’s selflessness and desire to help people can also be seen as a flaw as well as an asset because of how much he’ll put into doing things for others at his own risk.5-10 Key Character Traits:
