* MissingTrailerScene:
** There's a scene in which Ralph is chased by a swarm of Cy-Bugs while he is riding on Calhoun's cruiser to Diet Cola Mountain. In actuality, while riding to the mountain, he's not chased at all. The clip was most likely cut because it comes across as lightheartedly humorous (with Ralph flailing around and screaming), which would've been out of place in what is otherwise a serious climactic scene.
** Another missing trailer scene; there's a clip from ''Hero's Duty'' where one of the soldiers tells to Ralph "Get outta this game, buddy!" in the midst of the Cy-Bug attack.

Henry Jackman [[http://www.firstshowing.net/2014/wreck-it-ralph-composer-reveals-a-sequel-is-developing-at-disney/ revealed]] in an interview that a sequel is in early development. If made, it will be the fifth sequel in Disney's official classics canon, preceded by ''Disney/TheThreeCaballeros'', ''[[Disney/TheRescuers The Rescuers Down Under]]'', ''Disney/Fantasia2000'' and ''Disney/WinnieThePooh''. In addition, it would make ''Wreck-It Ralph'' the first film since 1977's ''The Rescuers'' to get a direct sequel that is part of the canon. The sequel was officially announced at the end of June 2016 for a release date of March 9, 2018. The sequel's premise will have Ralph venturing the Internet rather than the arcade.

* TheAllegedCar: Vanellope's first car, dubbed the Lickety-Split, isn't much to look at, doesn't even have an engine, and is entirely pedal-powered. It's unlikely it would have ever offered any serious competition in the race and it is destroyed very easily by the other ''Sugar Rush'' racers... who finish the job for her.

** Ralph inadvertently ''kills'' Felix when he crashes the party. Fortunately [[DeathIsCheap he can respawn]], so no harm done. Killing the guest of honor is quite clearly a serious faux pas, though.

* ArtificialStupidity: Spoofed with the PTSD-inflicted ''Hero's Duty'' [[SpaceMarine soldier]] Markowski at ''Tapper's'' who constantly walks head-on into a wall and repeats "We are humanity's last hope... our mission: destroy all Cy-Bugs", as if suffering from faulty routing and looping sound files.
* ArtShift: The ending credits have the main characters moving through various eras of video game animation, though for obvious reasons they don't bother with present-day. This also happens in the film proper when Ralph moves from ''Pac-Man'' back to Game Central Station, not to mention his own game in the beginning. Overall, ''all'' of the characters (except those from ''Hero's Duty'') are much more realistic and better-defined in their "private lives" than on their own game-screens; in fact Felix's adoration of Calhoun's "high definition" is somewhat puzzling, since he's not exactly 8-bit himself when he's off his own screen.\\\

Sonic is voiced by Creator/RogerCraigSmith, who has voiced him in the games since 2010. Additionally, many of the movie's dubs into other languages (including Dutch, German, French and Spanish) use Sonic's voice from the cartoons as the games never received dubs until Sonic Generations.

** Ralph, for his part, may be destructive and have a bad temper, which resulted in him inadvertently ruining the anniversary party and abandoning the game to prove his detractors wrong, but he also has plenty reason to be upset. He's been shunned and has lived in the dump for thirty years, and the Nicelanders and Felix never even bothered to ask him how he feels or help out. The destruction isn't nearly as bad as it seems either, since [[DeathIsCheap dead characters regenerate instantly]] and damage can be [[MrFixIt fixed with a magic hammer in seconds]]. Admittedly, the Nicelanders may have had a point in banning him from this ''specific'' party, since characters from ''other games'' [[DeaderThanDead don't regenerate]], but the fact that Ralph has never even eaten cake ''at all'' indicates that they've done nothing but ostracize him, which leaves them with no excuse. [[spoilers:So it makes sense that at the end of the film every one of these issues have to be addressed by Felix and the Nicelanders.]]

* AIIsACrapshoot: In an odd inversion, the Cy-Bugs, who, thanks to their simple, mindless, animalistic programming, are incredibly dangerous if they're let out of ''Hero's Duty''. While every other NPC is, at the very least, self-aware and follows the game's parameters, the bugs do ''not'' -- they are only kept in check by the beacon in ''Hero's Duty'', which recalls and destroys them when the game isn't being played. If they ever escaped, they would never stop consuming and multiplying.
