*** WordOfGod is that Zangief was put in there because he was ThatOneBoss for the writer. Which makes sense. In a fighting game, each fighter is effectively a boss fight. If the players in your local arcade tend to hit a wall when fighting you, they'll probably ''treat'' you like a bad guy.

** It's not that they would have died, but all those people would be homeless. If Ralph didn't sacrifice himself, everybody in the arcade would hate him for dooming two games and he'd lose his only friend anyway. At least if he sacrificed himself he could save one game and the little girl he cared about. And he'd finally be a hero...



* The Nicelanders panic when Ralph has left and Felix tries to asure them that "Ralph probably fell asleep in the washroom of Tapper's again". So, Ralph is so depressed about his life that he's drowning his sorrows in alcohol (or root beer). Worse yet, Felix says "fell asleep in the washroom of Tapper's '''again'''", meaning he does this frequently. And worse ''yet''; Felix ''knows'' he's doing this, but he does absolutely squat about it.

** 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.

* 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.

** Ralph would have died if he'd gone down into Cola Mountain, but that's because he would never have gotten to the exit in time. Once the gate was blown up and there was no way out, and the Cybugs had basically turned the game inside out, the arcade would turn it off permanently which WOULD finally kill him.

* King Candy's wariness of having outsiders in his kingdom makes sense [[spoiler: since there's a risk of them recognizing Vanellope from the side of the cabinet, which Ralph ends up doing later.]]

** But what are the odds of there being another arcade with another Ralph having an existential crisis, going into another Hero's Duty, getting another medal then getting in another escape pod with another Cy-bug, and miraculously landing in another Sugar Rush, with [[spoiler: another Turbo gone rogue and taking over said Sugar Rush]]?

** Or, even worse, [[spoiler:[[AndIMustScream the same thing that happened to Turbo would happen to her.]]]]

*** Should this be true, and we put two and two together, [[spoiler:what with Princess Vanellope and King Candy both being actual characters..... This implies Turbo essentially killed her father.]]

** What would happen if the surge protector ever got unplugged? It's very likely that every character inside of Game Central Station would cease to exist.

** Then how did Ralph leave after [[spoiler: breaking Vanellope's baked cart]] and [[spoiler: collecting his medal]], get back to ''Fix-It Felix Jr.'', and then return once he realised that Vanellope [[spoiler: is actually meant to be part of the game when he sees her picture on the side of the console]]?

** Even more FridgeBrilliance when you consider the following: All video game characters are warned that if they die ''"inside TheMatrix"'' (outside of their games) they die for real. But let's think about Ralph for a minute here, and who this rule applies to. For starters, Ralph is, quite obviously, the bad guy of his video game, which automatically makes him the boss character of each game. Now consider this: does Ralph rely on a lives system? Of course not, it's not in his programming. In fact, the only one we see lose a life in the game is Felix, and this makes sense because he's the playable character. Ralph is thrown off the roof in every game, but it never kills him. In fact, Ralph is never shown to be even capable of being destroyed, because as we cringe in worried anticipation of our favorite wrecker getting wrecked, we overlook just how much damage he's taken, and, conversely, notice how much damage he can deal. Of course he can deal large amounts of damage, it's in his programming to be capable of wrecking whole buildings and surviving their falls, but not ONCE is Ralph ever killed by Felix or any Nicelander in the game. Here's where the FridgeBrilliance comes into play: Ralph is one of the few, if not only video game character capable of surviving in any other game he's in! Based on the simplicity of his programming, Ralph is impervious. He survives Hero's Duty despite barrages of Bugs and Gunfire. He survives various falls and blows in Sugar Rush. Despite the damage he takes, he's not shown to be effected by any of it, and unlike Felix, he wouldn't be capable of fixing his sustained injuries. Ralph manages to do more harm to the environments beyond his own game despite never receiving a serious injury. Meanwhile, Ralph is oblivious to it all, convinced of his own possible demise based on warnings that seem to mostly apply to video game characters that are programmed to be capable of dying, be it boss, fighting character or hero. In this sense, Felix took a bigger risk going after Ralph because Felix could actually die! Which makes perfect sense, given he's supposed to be the hero. No wonder he panicked in the Nesquick Sand! This also accentuates the motif of Ralph being the bad guy. By proxy, he does more harm to everyone around him than he ever could do to himself.
