* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Although not the hero themselves, the Nicelanders are still ostensibly the "good guys" of the game. It's their rejection of Ralph despite his importance to the game that leads to him deciding to leave and try to become a hero in the first place. Had they actually treated him with respect, kindness, and appreciation from the start, none of the movie would likely have ever happened.

When another arcade game, ''[=RoadBlasters=]'', started drawing attention away from him, he literally abandoned his game and invaded theirs.

He did manage to cripple her in the attempt, though, and was able to usurp her position by manipulating her mind and the minds of her subjects. He destroyed the other kids' memories of her and turned them against her, encouraging them to pick on her for the disability he inflicted upon her. And then he changed the rules specifically to exclude her from an event she used to love before her memories were destroyed and can still feel an affinity for. Remember, the character he's doing all this to is designed as a nine year old girl. His reason? He can't stand not being the center of attention.

* LaserGuidedKarma: King Candy/Turbo, who had called himself a boss thanks to the power-up his Cy-Bug OneWingedAngel provided, dies because of the very thing he thought would help him win and continue his mad spree of game-hopping/conquering -- sure, he became one with a virus... a virus programmed to be [[GoIntoTheLight drawn into a destructive beacon]]. So he's dragged into it, unable to escape... and [[YouCantFightFate [[AndIMustScream fully aware the whole time]].



* LightningBruiser: In his Cy-Bug form, he can move with frightening speed, and has enough strength to toss Ralph like a ragdoll. Worth noting that Ralph is physically the strongest character in the film.
** Also applies to the playable version of ''Sugar Rush''. His stats are maxed out -- they didn't lock him up with a password for nothing.
* ManInWhite: His original form as Turbo wears a racing uniform that's white with a bit of red.
* ManipulativeBastard: Oh yes. He manipulated ''everyone'' in ''Sugar Rush'' into being nasty to Vanellope as part of his plan to replace Vanellope as ruler and was immensely successful at it, and when Ralph showed up to put a kink in his plans, he rolled with it and managed to get Ralph and Vanellope to turn on each other ''by giving Ralph exactly what he wanted!'' Heck, he even gives a ''perfectly reasonable'' explanation for not letting Vanellope race. And his villainy would have gone ''completely undiscovered''... if Ralph hadn't seen the side of the ''Sugar Rush'' console and put two and two together.

* TheReveal: Which you probably already know if you made it this far. King Candy is not actually supposed to be in the game -- he is really Turbo, the main character in an arcade cautionary tale, and he snuck into Sugar Rush and manipulated its code to let him be a racer. This is revealed when Vanellope comes in contact with him and triggers her glitch, which spreads to him and causes his disguise to flicker off.
