* Sort of a Fridge Sadness here. The way the other racers make fun of Vanellope's glitching (faking stutters, twitching, limb spasms...) is precisely the same way bullies tend to make fun of kids with mental handicaps. It's a surprisingly dark and grounded way of showing just what she is to them.[[note]]Actually that's one reason why this film strikes a major chord with certain neurodivergent communities. Many people on the autistic spectrum (including those with AspergersSyndrome too) sympathize with her and with Ralph.[[/note]] And considering that Vanellope lied and said she had "Pixlexia", there's even more resonance.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* King Candy looks like an old man. [[spoiler:The outdated graphics make his true form look like a zombie.]]

** Hero's Duty is created in modern times where all kinds of interesting technologies exist, like hypervisors or virtual machines that is capable of making sure the game is operating within specs. Also in the modern age we have MAME, the emulator that allows modern PCs to simulate older arcades.

* Why is the animation of the Nicelanders so choppy while Ralph and Felix are fully animated? Because, as the hero and villain of the game, they have more frames programmed. While the NPCs will have just one or two.

** It wouldn't be farfetched to assume that ''Tapper's'' closes down at least a few

** It wouldn't be farfetched to assume that ''Tapper's'' closes down at least a few
few hours before the arcade opens, so as to give everyone enough time to go back to their games, and allow Tapper to clean up after the customers. Before closing, Tapper must look around for the customers who got [[DrunkOnMilk drunk on root beer]], wake them up and send them back to their games. If that's the case, it gets worse when you realize Tapper's bar may have led to one game being unplugged in the past, because a character didn't leave or returned to his home game wasted.
** Maybe it's an example of "Did you try turning it on and off again?" Turning the game on and off again resets weak status effects because you're basically clearing out some of the data that happened in the last few days. It's just such an inconvenience.
* The death threat that Vanellope gives to the other racers in ''Sugar Rush'' was entirely played for laughs, but think about it: All the racers are in their own game, so Vanellope ''could'' have acted on the threat if she wanted to with all of the racers respawning shortly after they die. Brr...
* Cybugs don't die in their game any more than anybody else - but killing them resets them into their egg form, ready for the next game. What remains if the player fails is dealt with by the beacon.

** Except that 'Glitch' and 'Mistake' are exactly what he meant. [[spoiler: It is explicitly stated that he tried to ''delete her code'' He made a very spirited try to completely [[CessationOfExistence erase her from existence]] (because as long as she is still present in the game, she might be able to cross the finish line and reset the game), presumably he has made several attempts to remove her, because he has no reason to let her remain, yet she keeps coming back. As far as he is concerned, she is a 'glitch' a flaw in the perfect world he has created for himself, something that should not exist, but keeps coming back no matter how hard he tries. [[CompleteMonster Sums him up pretty well,]] doesn't it?]]
