* Why did King Candy lock up Felix in the Fungeon upon seeing him? [[spoiler: As far as he knows, if Felix simply bops Vanellope on the head with his hammer, it could fix what he did to her code. Felix is one of the most dangerous characters in the arcade, as far as Turbo's concerned]].

*** Actually, think about it. One of these bugs ate a [[MadeOfIndestructium Jawbreaker]]. Which means that even at their weakest, candy-based form they're more than capable of tearing through everything they touch, or they're capable of engulfing things the size of a SMALL TANK. To make it even worse, we know that for the most part, Calhoun's weapons are supposed to be effective against them when they're in their own game. Yep. Jawbreakers are tougher than anything in ''Hero's duty'' and their weapons are useless. And these bugs eat them [[{{Pun}} like candy!]]

* Fridge Tearjerker: Look closely at Vanellope and Ralph's first interaction with each other; Vanellope wasn't rude to Ralph until he tells her to "go home". A few scenes later, we find out that Vanellope's "home" isn't really a home for her.

* Personal; Turbo used the term 'Glitch' and 'Mistake' when he meant 'Dummied Out'. Then it hit me. Gaming from his era wouldn't even understand the concept of 'Dummied out'. Old gaming, especially arcade gaming, was very tight on raw space. ANYTHING that was not as it should be was a mistake, a glitch, not meant to happen, dangerous, etc. He even has an example in Pac-Man's kill screen(If anyone at Litwak's ever got that far). There wasn't ''room'' for 'things they intended/planned for but left out' like there can be today. Of course, that leads to the thinking 'if he'd worded it right, he'd have gotten her to stay away of her own will'.

** Actually, this is not as apparent as it may seem. From a gamer's perspective Ralph used an exploit to get to the medal. Instead of fighting his way up during gameplay, he climbed the outside of the building and broke in while his opponents we inactive. Essentially, he cheated. From his perspective, however, he earned it as he did exactly what he was supposed to do according to his programming, i.e. climb building, break building.

** The fact that there is a cart creation mini-game at all implies that all the drivers may have to drive custom carts from time to time. It makes sense that they would be able to adapt.

* Why is Valleope so [[EasilyForgiven easily forgiving]] of Ralph and the Sugar Rush racers? [[spoiler:Well, she is a [[{{Pun}} Sweet Princess.]]]]

to:

** To quote the CatharsisFactor page: "Using such actions regularly or frequently will more often than not make you even more prone to stress and anger fits, since it becomes a habit that gets readily associated with tense situations. In other words, if you punch a pillow to deal with stress, you are more likely to hit something at an inopportune time when stressed." [[DeconstructedTrope On top of Ralph inadvertently destroying the cake at the party when the others continue to belittle him, his first reaction after in sinks in that he's probably not going to get his medal back is to start destroying the scenery.]]

*Ralphs plight could also be a referance to how native americans where treated...pushed out of there homeland by invaders who felt entitled to have it , then where treated like little more than filthy beasts (like with how the nicelanders where insensitive to Ralphs complaints on how he was being treated ) and there anger at this was treated as savagery ( Ralph is the "villian" of the game despite him just being rightously angry that he was pushed out of his home without his consent into a dump .

* There's a ''Film/{{Tron}}'' [[FreezeFrameBonus game in the arcade]] as a ShoutOut. Now, think about the RecursiveCanon explanation given in both the [[videoGame/TronTwoPointOh FPS]] and [[Film/TronLegacy filmed]] sequels. If that game is a nod to the films being in a shared universe (after all, they're both {{Disney}}), it would explain a ridiculous amount about both. It would also make one of the nastiest bits of FridgeHorror about Flynn's Arcade turn out to be not so bad after all; the games were never ''supposed'' to be lethal or even harmful. The death-match element was just Master Control perverting it to his own ends and behaving like a dick.
