* Why do all the Sugar Rush characters have such fancy (almost to the point of ridiculous) names? Since the game is most likely from Japan, it's either a hit-and-miss translation attempt or the designers really wanted to try sounding cool (a la [[NoMoreHeroes Travis Touchdown]]).

* This movie actually explains and expands upon the GoKartingWithBowser phenomenon! Mario doesn't hate Bowser; nor does Peach. The whole cast likes getting together for friendly games. And as shown in SuperSmashBrosBrawl, Peach likes instilling this friendly camaraderie in other game characters.

**** Unless there's a home console or PC version with a story mode. You don't have to look any further than the ''Call of Duty'' franchise to find some noteworthy plots and plot-twists, it wouldn't be surprising for Hero's Duty to have something similar. Calhoun has a highly-detailed, appealing design and a strong personality to go with her tragic backstory, but why would anyone bother with all that for a character with no narrative in an arcade rail shooter? Simple: they probably didn't. Calhoun as a character exists in every version of Hero's Duty the same way Sonic exists in every Sonic game, and they would all naturally have the same backstory whether or not it applied to their incarnation in a particular format.

*** Most game stores organize alphabetically by title, with best sellers being placed at eye-level for their target audience. "Top shelf" specifically refers to specialty ''food'' items, usually things like candy (like you [[TheHatefulEight see in]] [[WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory movies]] [[{{Animaniacs}} and cartoons]]. Or alcohol, but that's not appropriate for a kid-oriented game like Sugar Rush.

Inaccurate. In the original script for Aliens, nobody had an assigned gender, so it's not that Ripley was supposed to be a man and was changed to a woman.
*** Ripley wasn't supposed to be female either. It was changed at the last minute because audiences of the time wouldn't have expected the female to survive. Although, Calhoun isn't technically the "hero" of the game...

** Well, Ralph only got in undetected because he was wearing armor from the game, and Felix was pegged immediately as not belonging there, which he obviously didn't even at first glance, being differently designed from ''Hero's Duty'' characters. I imagine if, say, Taffyta had wandered into the game, she'd stick out like a sore thumb even if she somehow got her hands on the armor, being so small, and would quickly be escorted out of the game. After all, the only reason Calhoun let Felix tag along to get the Cy-Bug was because of the whole situation with Ralph. Before that, she told him to scram.

* This troper had the thought of why Calhoun had a balistic pistol near the end of the movie, imagine if the cy-bugs had been able to take over most of the arcade games and the soldiers were the last line from them destroying everything, that pistol is only shown to bounce off of a Cy-bugs armor, so why have it?

One of their meanings is that of rebirth, and the white ones like Felix and Brad use can mean innocence and purity- the latter two definitions seem to suit the personalities of Brad and Felix. The rebirth definition works really well for Felix, who regenerates (is reborn) when killed in-game and works in his relationship to Calhoun and what he represents to her.

*** There was no purpose for him to delete Candlehead, as there are no 'lethal' hazards in Sugar Rush. Seeing as how Taffyta and gang fall hundreds of feet and land with no damage (other than Candlehead's candle going out) and another racer gets decimated by the gumball hazards but appears fine later, these are just annoyances to force the player off the track and lose the race. Diet Cola Mountain is a dangerous place likely because it's a dummied-out level--when you glitch games and go into areas you're not supposed to (no matter how finished they are) it's likely to glitch and break the game, sometimes to unsalvagable levels. Turbo dies at the end because of two reasons: one, he goes into a glitched, dangerous area where game code can't protect him and two, because when he fused with the Cy-Bug, he was forced to follow its AI and be attracted to bright things--in this case, the dangerous, glitchy Diet Cola lava.

* The reason Cy-Bug Turbo can roll like a wheel? The Cy-Bug that ate him also ate his kart, which had rolling wheels. Cy-Bugs become what they eat, so the kart was integrated into the design. * Why would Sugar Rush have double-stripe candy cane branches and Nesquick-sand, plus a minigame where you make your own kart? Wouldn't those be more at home in a platforming game? Well, sometimes full games are ported into arcade machines. Maybe there's a home version of the game which has platforming aspects, and the game was exported to arcade format, but the original code was left in.

** It wouldn't be fatferched to assume Tapper closes at least a few hours before the arcade opens, so as to give everyone enough time to go back to their games. Before closing, Tapper must look around for the customers who got [[DrunkOnMilk drunk on root beer]], wake them up and tell them to hurry to their games.

"Not cuts, no buts, no coconuts" is a phrase telling people there's no cutting in line. It has nothing to do with butts or genitalia or anything of that sort.
* When Ralph is asked what the 1st rule of "Heroes Duty" is, he ad-libs "No Cuts, No Butts, No Coconuts." While seemingly a gibberish phrase he's plucked out of thin air, all three of the things he lists are fairly common euphamisms for body parts that common decency demands people keep covered in public. Nuts = (male) genitals, butts = butts & coconuts = (female) breasts. So essentially, when Ralph is asked "What's the 1st rule of Heroes Duty?" his answer is "Don't flash any of your rude bits!"

[[spoiler: In Sugar Rush, ''Sugar Rush'', the only character who used the term "going Turbo" or even seemed at all suspicious of Ralph's game-jumping is King Candy.]] Since Sugar Rush ''Sugar Rush'' was plugged in years after what happened with Turbo, it's likely that no one else in the game was familiar with what had happened, [[spoiler: except for the one person who was there when it happened.]] ** Additionally, since Sugar Rush ''Sugar Rush'' had been around for years, no one knowing what happened is [[spoiler:a hint that King Candy had messed with the game's code--they weren't just made to forget Vanellope and view him as their rightful ruler, they were also made to forget Turbo and what he did so they wouldn't make the connection]].

* Felix can dodge Calhoun's shots because 1) dodging stuff is half the gameplay in his game (he has to dodge debris from Ralph) and 2) his jerky 8-bit movement is a lot like rubberbanding/lag/etc in a modern shooter which makes a target really really really hard to hit.

The games would have had to have met the ESRB or whatever other censorship organizations' standards. The characters are using the only words they can find. This leads to the greater fridge brilliance of realizing that ALL the characters' overall actions are built around this, which may explain lots of other weird customs in the arcade. ** This applies more to Calhoun; she could realistically be expected to use profanity - and maybe there exists an uncensored console version of Hero's Duty where she does - but in Felix's case it's likely an extension of his programmed personality.

Then you look at the damage Turbo did, and you realize it's foreshadowing, hinting at the fact that Ralph is basically doing the same thing - abandoning his own game, moving into another, and breaking both as a result, just because he doesn't like the game circumstances he's in. ** The CyBugs Cy-Bugs are breeding in a hidden underground cave of Sugar Rush, Rush that doesn't appear to have any entrances - a sort of MinusWorld, perhaps.

* The trailer shows a "Game Over" when Ralph is tossed off the tower, when it should actually be more like "End of Level 1". But Ralph is the movie's protagonist (for the most part), so to him, that moment is losing. * Why do all the Sugar Rush characters have such fancy (almost to the point of ridiculous) names? Since the game is most likely from Japan, it's either a hit-and-miss translation attempt or the designers really wanted to tr/ cool (a la [[NoMoreHeroes Travis Touchdown]]).

* Why does Ralph appear normal in Hero's Duty? He "replaces" Markowski in the game so the game is able to render him with modern graphics instead of his 8-bit version. If you pay attention every time a character jumps games and appears correctly it is either because the games are similar graphics [[spoiler:like when Q*bert becomes a bonus level in Fix-It-Felix Jr.]] or because they replaced an existing character. This also explains why [[spoiler:Turbo appears as his 8 bit form in RoadBlasters. He just tried racing in the game as an extra character and so showed up as his 8-bit self which wasn't compatible and crashed the game. This also explains why he took the time to replace Vanellope because if he didn't he would show up as an 8-bit character again and create problems in Sugar Rush.

** Though the above is probably true, if you look closely, you can also still see differences in 8-bit and 3-D characters' rendering even when they're both depicted in 3-D model form. Skin texture, details on clothing, and ranges of facial expression vary between them to an extent. For example, Calhoun has light freckles and her teeth look like realistic human teeth, whereas Felix just has uniform, almost plastic-looking skin and his teeth are only rows of white blocks with little indentations between them (it's not even clear that they're individual teeth until several are knocked out in the Nesquiksand scene). * Why does Ralph appear normal in Hero's Duty?

*** This would assume, however, that stats are inherent to the karts rather than the characters. When Vanelope saves Ralph at the end, she uses another racer's kart since it was conveniently nearby, and seems to be as fast as ever; As Sugar Rush's top character she would have top stats, which would transfer to whatever kart she's using (assuming the stats are inherent to the racer). This works for King Candy too since he effectively took Vanelope's place.

*** We see Vanellope present at Felix and Calhoun's wedding at the chapel in ''Hero's Duty'', so the ''Sugar Rush'' reset fixed her coding enough that she can travel between games. Her glitching is probably just a byproduct of a mangled teleportation ability that Turbo messed up when he tampered with her code.

*** Technically they ''could'' live forever as long as they kept finding stable and safe places in which to live (they obviously don't die of old age, at least). ''Hero's Duty'' and a handful of other games in the arcade are new enough that they'd get remote updates via the internet, so if the arcade were to be shut down, everyone could abscond to the internet and find residence in just about any game on the planet (any Animal Crossing game would be a pretty neat place to retire, for example). Alternatively, given how much he seems to love the games, Litwak would probably arrange for someone to take over the arcade if he became unable to - maybe Moppet Girl will be the next owner?

For other older characters like Ralph and Felix, their base personalities in their games (impulsive and hot-tempered vs. helpful and excruciatingly polite) are a result of their roles (Bad Guy wrecker vs. Good Guy fixer), but real-life experiences shape the finer points of who they are - Ralph is a GentleGiant who is sensitive to the way he is treated by the Nicelanders, for instance.

The "Sugar Rush" game trailer wouldn't be based on Litwick's game, it would be based on the original. Meaning [[spoiler: King Candy was a real character before Turbo showed up. So instead of creating him, ''Turbo took his place'']].

* [[spoiler: All of Vanellope's karts have been destroyed by the three antagonists of the three central games of the film. Her first kart, which was stolen by King Candy, was eaten by a Cy-Bug when the invasion happened. Her second kart, the Lickety Split, was destroyed by the Sugar Rush Racers, who could count as antagonists or rivals, since the gamer has to choose one, and they were fairly antagonistic towards Vanellope; later revealed to be so because King Candy warped their memories when he came to Sugar Rush as Turbo. Her third kart was destroyed by Ralph, the In-Universe antagonist of his own game; however, he only did because of King Candy/Turbo's lies that Vanellope would die if she raced in the game. So, the first was destroyed out of animalistic instinct, the second was destroyed out of spite, and the third was destroyed out of pity. Ultimately, the last was restored thanks to Fix-It-Felix Jr. Why? Because Ralph, as stated before, only did so because he cared for Vanellope's safety.]] * The irony of [[spoiler: King Candy/Turbo' s death. When he was Turbo, he took over Sugar Rush, leading to him taking Vanellope's old home. When he dies as a Cy-Bug hybrid, he dies in the Diet Cola Mountain. Vanellope's new home. An ironic death.]] * One reason the Nicelanders hate Ralph? '''He always wins in the end.''' * Besides the [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming,]] another reason Ralph [[spoiler: loves being thrown off of the building in the end]] is so the kids playing the real game [[{{Defictionalization}} (either in app or cabinet form)]] won't feel so bad when they win! Disney, you delightful [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative bastards!]]

* In the scene where Ralph crashes the escape pod from ''Hero's Duty'' into ''Sugar Rush'', he goes flying through Game Central Station and wings Sonic, who goes flying and drops dozens of golden rings. A funny little gag, but not nearly as funny when you consider the implications of that scene: Sonic is traditionally a OneHitPointWonder in his own games; he ''needs'' those rings in case he gets hurt outside of his game, or he could risk getting KilledOffForReal (as [[ChekhovsGun Sonic himself explained earlier in an in-story PSA]]). If Sonic ''hadn't'' brought those rings with him, he'd have been one dead hedgehog.

Death by Diet Cola + Mentos is a well-known urban legend. Additionally, the interaction between Diet Coke and Mentos is a popular home science experiment. This is very much Fridge Brilliance. Readded with note.

** Not necessarily so - they were art-designed to be small children, but each and every one of them is an aggressive, competent racer with about fifteen years' experience. Chances are that even the non-Vanellope racers give King Candy a hard run for his money, especially if (as was demonstrated,) the others have no problem colluding on the track to ensure someone who needs to take a dive takes a dive. They probably don't do that too often to someone who has a fungeon and the crooked cops to throw them into it, though. If anything, unless he's tampered with the code to give himself an edge, it's likely that they let King Candy qualify, if not take first, in most or all of the nightly races, simply out of fear of him as an autocratic monarch, not because they aren't capable of leaving him in their crumbs if he doesn't bring his A game.

However, at the end of the film, Ralph is much happier, his situation at home has improved substantially, and he's even learned to appreciate getting tossed off the roof just to see his little friend from across the arcade. Meanwhile, not only does Gene ''still'' have to get thrown out of the building as always, but he has no choice but to acknowledge Ralph's importance in the game.

* It's never actually stated that the characters don't feel pain when they die. Now, for those such as Felix for whom death is basically just falling over, it probably isn't too bad, but in games like Hero's Duty, there are probably more realistic death scenes... and they would have to go through that over and over. ** When Turbo finally dies notice how he does not stop screaming until he is completly gone.

*** There's also nothing to suggest that reboots or what not would actually erase their living memory. We saw that a reboot restored original pre-programmed memory but character's living memory were still in tact - the racers still remembered bullying Van, they just now also had their proper memories restored as well.

**** Recall the Laffy Taffy scene. The hammer returns things to their original state in the same sense as a reboot. Hammering a Cy-bug - especially a bug not in their own game - would probably actually destroy it since it's a glitch in the system (not naturally part of the game) or from a metaphysical perspective, since the Cy-Bugs are what they eat, technically random Sugar Rush!Cy-Bug is actually whatever they ate (the ground for instance).

* Why does Ralph appear normal in Hero's Duty? He "replaces" Markowski in the game so the game is able to render him with modern graphics instead of his 8 bit version. If you pay attention every time a character jumps games and appears correctly it is either because the games are similar graphics [[spoiler:like when Qbert becomes a bonus level in fix-it-felix jr.]] or because they replaced an existing character. This also explains why [[spoiler:Turbo appears as his 8 bit form in Roadblasters. He just tried racing in the game as an extra character and so showed up as his 8 bit self which wasn't compatible and crashed the game. This also explains why he took the time to replace Vanellope because if he didn't he would show up as an 8 bit character again and create problems in Sugar Rush. By booting Vanellope out of the game as a glitch he was able to take her place and be rendered in a way that the game could handle as instead of showing up as a 2d sprite again.]]

* Several times on this site there's been mention of Felix's "high definition" comment since, while he is from 8-bit while Calhoun's from 3D, they both are at least ''close'' to the same animation style in "real life." However, remember that there are several phrases, such as "[[UnusualEuphemism top shelf]]," which indicate that the world has its own slang.

* Early in the movie, while still in his own game, Felix's goes through his death animation just from being hit by a piece of falling ceiling, making him look like a OneHitPointWonder even though he takes more damage than that later on in the movie. This makes sense, since during gameplay, Felix is injured by Ralph throwing pieces of the building. It's likely that his death animation is specifically set off by building debris, particularly since the debris was generated by Ralph in the first place.

* Vanellope seems to pick up racing immensely quickly even though she purportedly does not know how to drive at the beginning of the movie; in the course of one day she becomes so good that even without her glitching abuse she manages to quickly get past several of the racers with little difficulty. One could easily chalk this up to Vanellope's claim that it's "in her code" and that she's a designated protagonist, but at the end we find out [[spoiler:she's the true ruler of Sugar Rush's world]], and therefore it would make perfect sense for her to by default be the most skilled racer in the entire game. ** Ralph also broke the machines in the kart factory, essentially breaking the minigame. Vanellope wanted a lot of frosting, and he ended up dumping several entire containers onto the kart. Maybe frosting is a sort of nitro for the karts, and by breaking the minigame, Ralph essentially created a "glitched" kart with impossibly high stats. The randomly slathered-on colors even resemble the kinds of corrupted textures you might see on a glitched character/vehicle.

** Is there such a thing as Fridge Heartwarming? *** There is now! ** Adding to this, there's the part where he kisses her on the cheek at the end of the movie after Sugar Rush is saved.

* The 'you must have one gold coin to enter the qualifying round' rule was something created by King Candy as part of his plans to keep Vanellope from ever having a chance to cross the finish line, along with the increased security on the kart factory. Since Vanellope has never been allowed to race, she has no gold coins from her nonexistent winnings... and since none of the other racers are friendly with her, she can't even hope to ''borrow'' one. Since King Candy could easily 'loan' a gold coin from his treasury (especially since we know he can hack the prize cup inventory) to any other racer who'd been on a consistent losing streak and couldn't pay their daily entrance fee, or the racers could loan coins to each other, the net result of the entrance fee is to ban Vanellope from ever having a hope of getting in while not obstructing any other racer at all. ** And why does Ralph's medal work to enter Vanellope in the race, despite not being the same as the other gold coins? Because Vanellope didn't just steal the medal from Ralph, she ''raced him for it''. She won it by racing, so its a racing prize, so by the rules of the Random Daily Roster Race it counts as a legitimate entrance fee!

* The Nicelanders are so disapproving of Ralph, no matter what he says or tries to do, simply because he's the villain, even when he breaks the mold. This is probably because of their programming: Felix and Ralph are the main characters, while all they can do is call for help and throw Ralph off the building when Felix wins... they ''literally'' can't do much else because their programming is very limited, in stark contrast to Felix and Ralph. * Remember all of that graffiti tagged everywhere? The credits show who does it: [[spoiler: The Surge Protector.]]. Why does he do it? [[spoiler: Go back to his conversation with Ralph. "Anything to declare?" "I hate you." "I get that a lot." If the characters saw all of the graffiti, they'd comment and wonder on who did it and soon he'd get some recognition and be liked!]]

** ShigeruMiyamoto more or less confirmed this theory in an interview, where he said he considers the characters more like "actors" who play different parts depending on the game. So Bowser will play the part of a brutal usurper one game, then just a large racer the next. * At the end of the movie, [[spoiler:Vanellope discovers she's really supposed to be the ruler of the game, but decides that a democracy would fit better.]] It's probably a coincidence that this film was released the week before the 2012 presidential election! The mock ad for Fix-It Felix, Jr.'s Magic Hammer even lampshades this!

It's probably a coincidence that this film was released the week before the 2012 presidential election! The mock ad for Fix-It Felix, Jr.'s Magic Hammer even lampshades this!

* Vanellope seems incapable of interacting with people without casually insulting them every so often. This makes sense, considering she likely [[TearJerker has no experiences with others that don't involve getting insulted.]] * Vanellope can't leave her game. [[spoiler:But as the rightful ruler she wouldn't want to abandon her kingdom anyway.]] ** Not so much. [[spoiler: We see other 'main characters' able to leave their original game, including Felix and Turbo himself. Vanellope's locked into Sugar Rush because that's part of Turbo's hacking; after all, his entire scheme collapses the instant Vanellope gets out and shows her face to anyone else who's seen the Sugar Rush game cabinet from the outside.]] *** [[spoiler: She was only glitched because Turbo messed with her code. Once the game reset, the program re-loaded from ROM, and she was restored to normal. Her random teleporting isn't a glitch - it's her special ability. She just forgot how to control it because her memory was locked away. The others assumed it was a glitch, because it looks like one and they've been led to believe she's always been a glitch, and because they also can't remember that it's just her normal ability.]] *** But it took her years to master the teleporting while she picked up on driving overnight. Besides, WordOfGod confirms it is a glitch.

* Why can't glitches leave their game? They're corrupted data. You try transferring a broken file and see how it works. ** You can transfer broken files quite well. Opening or using them anywhere else is the problem. ** There is also the concept of Sandboxing code where it can not interact with anything outside of said sandbox. Did it look like Vanellope was hardly able to interact with her game other then existing in it with out the help of the medal to enter the race. * It probably was not intended by the film-makers, but, when Ralph was trying to get to the candy-cane tree in the middle of the green lake by jumping from gumdrop to gumdrop, he was grappling with a gamer's worst nightmare! The dreaded platforming! ** His game is also a platformer, but he's not the one doing the platforming-- Felix is.

Old ones eventually get recycled in code or some such. * In the ending [[spoiler:the Q*bert characters make a cameo in the Wreck-It Ralph game.]] Not only is there the issue of accidentally killing one of them, but the movie establishes that games with non-native characters inside at the time of playing are prone to crashing. ** Actually, the movie doesn't say that; Turbo's game and the RoadBlasters game he jumped into were taken out because he refused to leave and kept messing up the gameplay, but didn't actually crash anything. If that were true, [[spoiler:then Sugar Rush should have had problems long before the Cy-Bug invasion since Turbo forced his way into the game]]. As for the Q*bert characters, it's possible the coding of the game prevents them from dying as "bad guys" since the only one who "dies" in the game is Felix himself. *** Not true: if you watch closely, both games are shown to crash violently (with the Pac-Man kill screen, even). However, Ralph didn't cause any trouble (at least code-wise) in Hero's Duty. Turbo Time was obviously broken because the main character was missing; RoadBlasters probably broke because of something Turbo did to its code, in a failed attempt to take over the same way he did Sugar Rush. *** RoadBlasters crashed because Turbo drove right into the player's car. The game was fine when he drove across the top of the screen, but when he touched the player's car the game had no code for what to do, so it crashed. ** Also, they only appear in a bonus level where Q*bert and co basically just throw the Nicelanders around meaning the only harm is to Felix and the Nicelanders. *** This could loop back around to FridgeBrilliance - since the characters now know the game code is hackable, maybe Felix "fixed" his game to recognize them as natives? *** Even more FridgeBrilliance: They literally ''can't die'' in Fix-It Felix Jr. Felix's hammer can only fix things! * [[spoiler:King Candy/Turbo himself. An attention whore who not only destroyed his home arcade, but also the world of an arcade game he was jealous of. He was able to survive and instead of learning the errors of his selfish acts, he usurped the rightful ruler of another game and {{mind rape}}d the populace into believing that he was their ruler. This character was perfectly fine with making a child's life miserable and allowing other worlds to be destroyed as long as he was the center of attention. And that is even before he goes OneWingedAngel!]] ** Even more Horror: [[spoiler:The last heard of Turbo, he crashed his replacement, the next-gen racing game. Said game was 16-bit to Turbo's 8. That's still quite old. In other words, ''Turbo has been loose for at least a decade''. How many games/lives has he ruined between then and ''Sugar Rush''?]] ** Did it ever actually say in the movie that [[spoiler: there ''wasn't'' a real King Candy?]] I recall that the characters in Sugar Rush had a verbal announcement of their name to go along with being selected, like when King Candy started the prelim race and the "announcer voice" called his name out... That being the case, it might suggest that [[spoiler: since there was a sound clip of his name, King Candy actually was a real Sugar Rush character, and Turbo ''hacked and stole his identity''. Plus, since he was King, that probably meant he would have been Vanellope's father...]] *** [[spoiler: I would think that, once everyone's memories came back, they'd have remembered and mentioned that. They remembered Vanellope as their princess who ruled over them, not as the daughter of their ruler. Besides, wouldn't having everything reset bring back the original King Candy if there was one? Maybe...]] *** One more horrible thought is [[spoiler: King Candy ''was'' a real character but in order to take his place and make sure the game recognized him on some level, Turbo hacked KC like a virus (or a Cy-Bug). If this is so, he's metaphorically wearing KC's skin and got him killed in the pseudo-Beacon (since he was no longer original code any more).]] *** This would also explain why there is room for 16 racers at the night races (and possibly all 16 race as AIs against players) while Vanellope was supposed to be a 'glitch' [[spoiler: and was replaced by Turbo.

[[spoiler: King Candy's plot failed because he chose Vanellope to become the glitch and take her place in the game. Given the fact that Ralph learned that he wasn't lying when he spotted her on the arcade cabinet...what if King Candy ''did'' think a few steps ahead and chose someone else to become the glitch? He had a perfectly good argument for why Vanellope should not become one of the racers... Ralph could have possibly simply abandoned Sugar Rush since he was legitimately convinced King Candy was a ReasonableAuthorityFigure...]] ** Except [[spoiler: Turbo's thing is that he wants to be the star of the game, not just in the game. So of course he's going to go after the ruler of the game, and not pick just any random racer.]] * None of these nine-year-old children appear to have parents or even families of any kind; they and King Candy are the only humans in Sugar Rush. ** The racers look like they're able to take care of themselves, and King Candy is the worst possible role model imaginable. They're probably better off on their own, rather than have ''him'' as a father figure. ** They're ''video game characters.'' They don't need parents. ** There is concept art of the racer's parents in the art book. They probably exist offscreen. ** In the commentary for deleted scenes there was originally a town called Candy Hollow where the racers lived with their families. ** So if there ''are'' adults other than King Candy in Sugar Rush, why weren't they helping the little kid living all by herself on the outskirts of town? Why weren't they stopping their kids from bullying her? Were they just that awful? Were they ''deliberately {{MindRape}}d'' by [[spoiler: King Candy]] so that they wouldn't interfere? It's probably less horrifying to just assume that there aren't any adults. * More fridge sadness, but if you watched the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwZxdWJmA6w Sugar Rush Arcade commercial]], you'll see Vanellope as a selectable character, and when the player doesn't choose her, she starts crying. But considering that this is advertising a new game in the arcade but King Candy is already a playable character, that means that the time Vanellope managed to enter the race in the movie ''wasn't the first time'' she pulled that off... but no one chose to be her that first time. Then comes the horror, as that's probably what caused King Candy to clamp down so hard on her. ** Most likely a continuity error in the commercial, because the movie establishes that you don't get into the playable roster in the first place until after you've placed among the first nine finishers in the Daily Random Roster Race held 'inside the game' after the arcade closes -- the very same race Vanellope has been trying all along to enter in the first place. *** So, here's some more Fridge Brilliance as to why she's there. [[spoiler:King Candy ''knows'' that Vanellope is supposed to be the flagship character of Sugar Rush, therefore having her be completely absent in the commercial might possibly make someone "out there" suspicious. But since the commercial is only going to show the selection screen and not actually an entire race, Vanellope can be allowed to appear in it without risking her actually crossing a finish line. So Turbo taunts her with false hope, telling her he'll let her in the race selection at last... then the instant Litwak's is done filming its ad, he boots her back out into the wilderness without actually putting her in a kart because he's a total bastard like that. By the same logic, King Candy should never have let himself be seen on-screen during the TV commercial, but since being an AttentionWhore is his fatal flaw, there's no way he wouldn't take the risk. Even so, note that he never actually shows his face to the camera, just his racing helmet.]] ** The rule that you have to win at least one race might have been implemented by King Candy to keep Vanellope from racing. We don't know if racers have to buy their way into the pot when the game is running normally / under Vanellope's rule. And even if it is, under normal circumstances a racer who had a bad streak of luck and was broke could just borrow a coin from a friend, or the reigning ruler can hand out some gold coins from the royal treasury as a gift... but under King Candy's rule, neither of those would ever happen for Vanellope because she has no friends and King Candy is specifically trying to keep her out. ** [[spoiler:For that matter, just try to imagine the original takeover of ''Sugar Rush'', with the rightful ruler forcibly removed and then everyone {{Mind Rape}}d to forget what had just happened.]]

Note that there a number of said monsters who are DangerouslyGenreSavvy, are of the PhysicalGod level(or can go OneWingedAngel) and/or have [[GalacticConqueror unnerving]] [[ForTheEvulz goals.]] And there would be versions who think they're said character, and are either in a big arcade, wi-fi accessible or learnt to hack their game. Could you imagine the kind of damage [[MegaManZero Dr Weil]], [[PokemonMysteryDungeon Time and Darkness Darkrai]], [[FinalFantasyVI Kefka]], [[SuperPaperMario Dimentio]] and ''[[IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream AM]]'' would do if even one version behaved just like their character? Especially the aforementioned Dimentio and Darkrai, who are [[MagnificentBastard horrifyingly]] [[TheChessmaster good]] at [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation]], [[OmnicidalManiac want to destroy]] or rule [[MultiversalConqueror everything]] and who's games [[OhCrap can connect]] [[AIIsACrapshoot to the]] '''[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou INTER]][[ApocalypseHow NET]]''' * It's a bit odd that the only refugees we see in Game Central Station are from Q*Bert, considering that other games have certainly been unplugged. Of course, this must mean that either the residents didn't get out in time... or they went Turbo and are hiding out somewhere in another game.

* [[spoiler: When King Candy/Turbo gets eaten by a Cy-Bug, he still shows self-awareness.]] Does that mean that anyone who gets eaten by a CyBug ''is still conscious and aware of what they're doing?''

Fridge Logic belongs on Headscratchers
[[folder: Fridge Logic]] * Why is Zangief[[note]]who, in the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' canon, is NOT particularly villainous[[/note]] at the villain support group? He's not a bad guy; he just [[PunchClockVillain plays]] [[DesignatedVillain one]] sometimes. ** So is the title character. ** He was in [[Film/StreetFighter the movie]] and [[WesternAnimation/StreetFighter the cartoon]]. The mix-up could've been there. *** Going off of that, he might be a version of Zangief from [[VideoGame/StreetFighterTheMovie the arcade game based on the movie]], where he was evil. ** Before and for a few years after the ColdWar, ANY Russian character in American Media was depicted as a villain. Zangief's in the support group as a victim of cultural dissonance. ** A Psychological issue: Statistically speaking, how many ''Street Fighter'' players actually ''play'' Zangief (and other MightyGlacier grappler types like him), compared to RyuAndKen, Chun-Li, and other more balanced (or even [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute attractive]]) characters? Technically speaking, Zangief ''isn't'' a Bad Guy. But if you spend 95% of the time as an obstacle to the player rather than the PlayerCharacter himself, you might start to ''feel'' like one. *** There's also the fact that, sometimes depending on the iteration but almost always in the right hands (another player or high-level A.I.), Zangief is ''notorious'' for giving players an extraordinarily hard time. So, it could be less a case of Zangief being erroneously labelled as villain because he's morally evil (unlike, say, [[MadeOfEvil M. Bison]]) and more the fact that he's seen as a barricade by players on the other side of the screen, as said above. *** This one's pretty much confirmed. When asked about this over Reddit, [[WordOfGod Rich Moore]] responded "[[ThatOneBoss he was bad to]] ''[[ThatOneBoss me.]]''" ** Also, remember what Zangief actually ''says'' to Ralph. "You are '[[DesignatedVillain Bad Guy]]', but that does not mean you are ''bad guy''." Who better to explain that concept than a guy who, despite not being particularly villainous in most of his incarnations, is nonetheless filed under 'villain'? ** Zangief isn't there because he's a villain, he's there because he's the ''group leader'' helping them through their issues. It's why he gets all the deep and insightful lines. He's not a member, he's the therapist. *** According to the director, he had trouble defeating Zangief as a child, so he considers him "evil". *** I thought Clyde was the leader? They meet at his place, he leads the discussion it seems... ** I thought he was just there for the free donuts. ** It's because the director, Rich Moore, always got his ass kicked by Zangief when he was playing single-player in ''Street Fighter II'', so Zangief became a "bad guy" for him. * When Felix stopped following the player's commands, why did the controls start moving on their own? ** Because Moppet Girl started a game, and basically in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' fashion, the characters can move on their own but just allow themselves to be controlled during gameplay. * Ralph's and Q*bert's TakeThat about the FirstPersonShooter makes little sense. The genre is a distant minority in the arcade scene, where the only ones I can find are ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'', SNK's ''TheSuperSpy'', and possibly Atari's I, Robot. (There is also SNK's CrossedSwords trilogy, but those are first person slice'em-ups.) Furthermore, shoot'em ups have a long and honorable history in the arcade scene. The rail versions dating back to ''Crossbow'' and ''OperationWolf'', and the scrolling versions to ''Commando'', ''IkariWarriors'', and ''Jackal''. Frankly he should be more bewildered at the way tournament fighting games have taken over. ** The TakeThat doesn't appear to be so much against the genre itself, so much as the sheer omnipresence they have in the modern market. Outside of Nintendo systems, FPS games are seen by many as the easiest way to make money in the game world; because of this, other genres get less attention. Q*bert, a character from a Platformer, is willing to settle for a cameo in an FPS. ** Ralph's TakeThat could also be referencing at how the market is flooded with "DarkerAndEdgier" type of games. * In his game, Felix "fixes" windows by hitting them with a hammer. ** It's a ''[[AWizardDidIt magic]]'' hammer. *** Could it be a reconstructed throwback to Mario's Hammer-powerup from {{Videogame/Donkey Kong}}? *** WHY DO I FIX EVERYTHING I TOUCH?!?! ** Also, aren't maintenance workers required to wear hard hats and safety harnesses while working on windows? *** Felix isn't a maintenance worker, per se. He's the superintendent of the building. He's not ''required'' to wear hard hats or a harness, but he probably should. *** Most maintenance workers don't have a giant dude smashing the building when they are working on it. *** Which would only FURTHER necessitate a hard hat and safety harness! *** There's no time to get them on. He has to fix the building before Ralph completely smashes it. *** Couldn't he have been programmed to have a hard hat on instead of a cap? **** It's shown that Felix gets a hard hat as a power up. *** Shouldn't they stop Ralph first, instead of trying to repair the building ''while he's still destroying it?'' *** That might be why Gene was thrown off the building during the intro to begin with. He tried to stop Ralph, but he's the biggest character there. They're powerless. * The bartender from the game "Tapper" was seen in the new trailer, instead of the soda jerk character from Root Beer Tapper. Does this mean that Disney will have to use the Budweiser logo? ** Not necessarily. If you look in the background of the scene, where the Budweiser logo would normally be is in fact the logo from "Root Beer Tapper." The Bartender is definitely from "Tapper" though. I assume they simply mixed the two games, but if that were the case, why they didn't just use the bartender from "Root Beer Tapper" remains a mystery. *** Maybe it's to keep the bartender a traditional bartender instead of the soda jerk with the paper hat. *** There were four versions of Tapper: Root Beer Tapper, (Budweiser) Tapper, a variant of Budweiser Tapper for Japan that used Suntory beer instead, and a generic beer Tapper for the rest of the world. The Tapper from the film is likely a mix of the first and the last, since no licenses to the beer companies would be involved. *** Turns out, it's the Budweiser Tapper. They were happy to have him in the film. ** Plus, when Ralph returns to the GCS, you can clearly see the "Tapper" sign. Maybe they won't show the Budweiser logo, but will keep the bartender for the older gamers? ** FridgeBrilliance: It's ''not'' a legit copy of Root Beer Tapper, it's a '''hack''' of a (Budweiser) Tapper machine to make it like a Root Beer Tapper machine! ** Also, Tapper is pixelated, or in other words, the root beers are square. Squared Root Beer. Mathematically, the two cancel each-other out, and you're left with Beer. *** Wow... *** Mind = Blown * What happens when you have games who have customizable characters? When you create one, is a new character popped into the world, or is it like they've got a couple of people who can shapeshift or otherwise go through a lot of make-up? ** In Hero's Duty, it shows that the PlayerCharacter is personified by a TV monitor with arms and legs showing the gamer's face. *** What about someone like [[Franchise/MassEffect Commander Shepard]], whose appearance, backstory, abilities ''and personality'' are decided by the player, but are seen through a third-person perspective? *** AnimatedActors, they're just playing a part decided on by the gamer. As soon as they walk away, they drop character. *** Also, these are arcade games, not PC games. Presumably PC games function under different rules. * In one scene from the trailers, Dig-Dug quickly digs underground to hide from Ralph at the Game Central Station, i.e., the surge protector that all the games are connected to. What happens if he actually digs his way out of the device? ** The floor could be made of Minecraft bedrock, so he ''can't'' break it. ** That raises an interesting point: Ralph already showed that he could "wreck" pretty much anything during his time in Sugar Rush, cracking the supposedly unbreakable jawbreaker in half. Who's to say he couldn't break through Minecraft bedrock... or, say, the game's ''screen''. If Turbo had thought of that, he might have gone [[Film/{{Tron}} MCP]] and set his sights higher than just the Arcade... ** Ralph did affect the real world: [[spoiler: he threw his Hero's Duty medal against Fix It Felix Jr.'s screen with enough force that a corner of the Out of Order Sign slipped. And what did he see when it slipped? Vanellope on the side of the Sugar Rush console.]] * Wouldn't Calhoun's fiancee not actually exist since he's only a programmed memory? ** The same could be said of Ralph's former home. He's as real as everyone's memory is, and that doesn't make the pain any less real. ** The memories may be real in some form, as the same wedding chapel from Calhoun's traumatic memory appears in the ending. Perhaps non-interactive cutscenes such as those regarding backstory are merely "filmed" once, then characters like Brad and General Hologram retire to pixel paradise or something. * [[spoiler:Turbo's]] plan is pretty clever within the game, but kinda falls apart outside the fourth wall. [[spoiler:''Sugar Rush'' must surely be played elsewhere than that one arcade. If Turbo simply hasn't usurped the identity of an existing character, and even then, odds are ''someone'' is going to notice that this particular console doesn't follow the basic plotline of others of its make. It's not just that Vanellope is absent as a racer, she's outright absent as a character when she's on the console artwork.]] ** You have to remember that the game only has 9 racers on every given day, and they get changed up daily. Someone that played Sugar Rush at another arcade would assume that she just didn't get picked that day at that particular machine. ** Also, there were arcade machines that could be re-programmed/updated with new code via flash ROM, and later, there were arcade machines that could be hooked up to landlines for remote updates. And some arcade machines were time-locked; it would take months for a new character to actually appear. And, given the age of Sugar Rush, at some point, only the die hard fans would really start nitpicking. ** More likely, wouldn't people who have played ''Sugar Rush'' in a different arcade notice that this copy [[spoiler: has a completely new character? King Candy does not exist in any other copy of the game, so players would be more likely to notice the strange addition than the absence of another character. And if this console was the only one with a "unique character" it would have garnered a lot more popularity and attention for the arcade because of its rarity, which we didn't see in the movie.]] *** Sugar Rush has been in Litwak's arcade for ''fifteen years'' and still has people lining up to play it literally all day long. I think we ''did'' see the "popularity and attention" in the movie. ** Plus, if you never noticed, in the commercials it explicitly states that these games are only available at Litwak's arcade. ** Also, in real life, there had/have been some Easter Eggs and hidden secrets that have remained so for over a decade. So it's possible. ** They'd also wonder why no other Vanellope uses the kart she has at Litwak's. * Won't people be curious that King Candy permanently vanished from the game and got replaced by Vanellope? I get the whole random generator thing, but permanently replacing a character is sure to raise an eyebrow. ** On a related note, what about the new bonus round for Fix-It-Felix Jr. just appearing? And with characters from unrelated games? Won't anyone get suspicious how that was just added? They also might be curious how no other Fix-It-Felix Jr. game in the world has it. *** Worst case scenario, everyone assumes someone other than themselves hacked the games. Since nothing is actually broken and, most importantly, the customers are happy, there isn't going to be much reason to do more than shrug at an oddity. *** Yup! That particular Fix-It-Felix Jr. machine, the only one in the world with the new bonus level? It's going to be considered ''awesome'' and make that machine a collectible. Litwak is probably refusing offers for it because it's drawing people to his arcade like nobody's business. Heck, in the last scene with Moppet Girl playing Fix-It-Felix Jr., we see that almost everyone else in the arcade has crowded around to gape over her shoulders at the 'new bonus level'. *** When players are seeing the new bonus level for the first time, one of them says something like "I can't believe we never noticed this before!" They just assume this bonus level always existed, and is just so hard to find that they've never unlocked it before. ** In real life, there had/have been some Easter Eggs and hidden secrets that have remained so for over a decade. So it's possible. And it's possible that they might think that for this one machine, the Easter Egg was solved. More over, SR was made at just about the end of the time when game developers weren't really credited with their games or even allowed to talk about them. So if anyone asks, they could very well not know. ** Many real-life arcade games contain DIP switches or secret menus that allow the owner to customize certain settings to their liking. Most of these settings are related to difficulty, in the form of number of lives, coins per play, or points to an extra life, but some games allow changes to graphics modes, sound effects, or even whole characters or levels. Gamers may have assumed that when he had maintenance done on the faulty games, Litwak started adjusting the DIP switches enough to change the experience, unlocking the bonus rounds of Fix-It Felix, Jr., and switching from a "localization" of Sugar Rush's monarch back to the original Japanese version's character model and powerset which had been left in there. * Are there any real arcades that list the price on video games by number of quarters? I've definitely seen it that way on pinball machines, but most arcades I've played just say the price directly. ** They might have changed that practice in recent times, but the x quarters thing is definitely real. Litwak's arcade seems to be a bit dated compared to what you might find in a mall or something, so it's more likely his machines would use such a pricing system. ** I thought that was the only way the price was listed. But then it's been a while since I've been to anything resembling an arcade. * Why are there TemporaryPlatform branches (on the candy trees) in a racing game like ''Sugar Rush''? No one's going to be walking... ** Maybe from [[spoiler: King Candy messing with the code of the game]]. ** Unused minigame? *** Or a fully functional minigame that we just don't ''see'' used. *** Well, in the credits, we ''do'' see Ralph and Vanellope hopping across some types of gummies in an HD pixel gameplay, so... ** Maybe it was from a ''Sugar Rush'' platformer that came out before ''Speedway'' did. ** It's probably a racing hazard on one of the courses, and trees outside have the same properties. That one branch Calhoun and Felix walked on was huge. ** It could also be used on shortcuts where you 'break' through branches to get to said shortcut. In which case, it's not that double stripes disappear when stood on, they just disappear when collided with in order to mimic breaking away. * Rail shooters are the one genre where you can bank on having unlimited ammunition. Why doesn't Calhoun have it? ** There's a Hero's Duty game on the Disney website. IIRC, it doesn't have unlimited ammo. *** The only unlimited ammo in the real Hero's Duty games is for your starting weapon, the one that deals the least damage with the lowest firing rate, naturally. ** Because Calhoun's outside her home game at the time. Stuff doesn't respawn when you're outside your game. ** Possible {{FridgeBrilliance}} brought on by reading this just now: Because she's an NPC. Think of all the events in Time Crisis or House of the Dead or what have you where you need to cover your teammates while they reload. [[spoiler: The First-Person Shooter]] might have had infinite ammo, but it makes sense to me that Calhoun and her team wouldn't. * What would have happened if [[spoiler:Vanellope had crossed the finish line during the Cy-Bug attack? Would they be deleted when the game reset, or would they have continued to destroy the restored world?]] ** [[spoiler: As Ralph put it, there was no finish line to cross.]] *** [[spoiler:The Cy-Bugs probably would have been deleted, but that would have required the same steps - Ralph to wreck the debris, Felix to fix the finish line and then Vanellope to cross it - which there simply wasn't enough time for in the middle of the Cy-Bug attack.]] *** [[spoiler:Probably not, Ralph, Felix, and Calhoun weren't affected.]] *** [[spoiler:In that vein, what probably happened was that the reset only reboots the existing code in the game itself. Ralph, Felix and Calhoun are all foreign code so the reset ignored them. The Cy-Bugs probably would have been ignored as well, unless the game recognized their candy-based structures as being 'weird' and got rid of them as a result. This also further explains why Vanellope's glitch isn't a glitch but a teleportation ability since the game didn't fix it in its reset (unless it is unfixable as a result of Candy/Turbo severing the links.)]] * Wouldn't the cars with ice cream themes melt? ** No more than cars made of food spoil. Or drive. ** That's all thanks to the game's programmed physics. They function like regular karts as long as they're in Sugar Rush. Notice that when [[spoiler: the Cy-Bugs invade and everyone flees,]] the racers leave their karts behind. That's likely because the karts wouldn't hold if they were outside the game. * [[spoiler: What was Vanellope's original kart and 'theme'? Except for when she uses someone else's kart to save Ralph, she's always seen driving that mess they made in the factory. Aside from that pedal-driven thing in the beginning...]] ** [[spoiler: What kart do we know plays the opening bars of "Hail To The Chief" when you honk its horn? Turbo apparently stole Vanellope's kart at the same time he was stealing her crown, castle, and subjects. No ''wonder'' Vanellope keeps her handmade kart rather than switch back to her 'original' one; who'd want to drive that bad memory anywhere? As for her original theme, her last name "Von Schweetz" implies that her theme would be as the sovereign of ''all'' candy, not named after any particular type of candy like Taffyta or Minty Zaki, hence the generic 'cartoon princess' dress and royal cream-colored kart. And if the picture on the side of the game console is any indicator, she was also intended to be a tomboy princess who'd ditch her foofy gown for a cool green NASCAR-style racing suit whenever she actually got off the reviewing stand and in the race.]] *** [[spoiler: Upon further inspection, the front of Vanellope's kart on the game cabinet is white and shaped similarly to King Candy's. So yeah, he probably took it.]] *** Confirmed with this [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mcxbcm3jXp1qdbhwwo8_1280.png piece of concept art]]. *** [[spoiler: Goes into FridgeBrillance since it explains why his castle, car, and everything else is pink (salmon). It was Van's to begin with.]] *** [[spoiler: Also a bit of GeniusBonus to anyone with a solid color sense; the pinks the castle is decorated in are nowhere near salmon.]] *** Wow, EvilIsPetty. *** The artbook confirms that her theme is actually licorice. Notice that her hair tie was red licorice and so were the strings on her hoodie when you look closely. * Although in many respects [[spoiler:Candy/Turbo]] is quite TheChessmaster and ManipulativeBastard, he seems rather TooDumbToLive in one way--not following his plan through to its logical conclusion. If by joining with a Cy-Bug he became a virus that could spread to other games, he could certainly conquer and control every one of them in the arcade. Based on [[spoiler:Turbo's backstory]], [[AndThenWhat all this would accomplish is getting ''every'' game shut down]] for being glitchy/hacked, which would either get everyone (including him!) killed when the games were all unplugged, or leave them all homeless if they managed to escape the games before they were unplugged. Either way, his great plan would ultimately end in him losing. [[FridgeHorror Unless he thought he could somehow escape the arcade and get into other arcades/home systems/PC games/the Web...]] ** At this point he is likely quite insane. And if that Cy-Bug had even the slightest effect on his personality, then it's quite probable he couldn't think beyond that motivation. * Okay, what about this: The reason Vanellope glitches is because [[spoiler:her code was tampered with and all but destroyed... But when Vanellope crosses the finish line, she supposedly resets the game back to its factory settings. So how come she can STILL glitch? Did she master some cosmic, matrix-like force... or is it that the game not 100% better, and [[FridgeHorror Turbo is still hiding in the code somewhere]]...?]] ** [[spoiler: Because when she was "glitched", she was already aware of some of her dummied out programming. Teleporting was ''never'' a glitch, it was ''always'' her character ability. Ralph and Co. just continue to call it a glitch because that's what they're used to calling it.]] *** [[spoiler: This makes the most sense to me. Near the end of the movie, it looks like Moppet Girl has to push a button on the console in order to teleport. There might be a timer associated with it too. So I'm thinking that the short teleport was her special ability and she lost control of it when Turbo messed with the code.]] ** Alternatively, reset or not, her code is still damaged. [[spoiler:Turbo rather forcefully tried to disconnect her. If the game had bounced back to factory settings completely, their memories would reset completely, Vanellope included. The default settings were restored, so Vanellope retains her glitching but the system rightfully treats her as the star racer.]] *** My working theory is that her teleportation is a combination of an ability she's supposed to have in the game (like Candlehead lighting the cherry bombs) that she forgot about and slight remaining damage from being reduced to a glitch. It probably had some kind of pretty animation that made it work with the candy theme of the world (like she might disappear and reappear in a cloud of sparkles and sugar or something), but having [[spoiler:King Candy try to get rid of her resulted in ruining that animation. This left her teleporting in the form of blue pixilation instead. That's why Moppet Girl could activate her "glitch" with a button press at the end of the film and she could leave her game, but she could also still teleport around the place]]. Her ability remains, but the pretty animation is lost. * Felix was in a jail cell in Sugar Rush, with bars clearly made of chocolate. Why didn't he just eat his way out? ** If the chocolate bars are strong enough to resist being broken with his hands, they're probably strong enough to resist breaking with his teeth, and he likely didn't have the time to melt them by licking them. ** The Wreck-It Ralph Wii game (of questionable canonicity) states that Felix is lactose intolerant, so maybe he couldn't eat the chocolate without making himself sick? ** A Missed Moment of Awesome: Sugar Rush is made of sweets. Felix gets an energy boost from pies. Why didn't they include a sequence where Felix was exhausted and ate a gigantic piece of pie ''in'' Sugar Rush so he could do awesome shit!? Probably too obvious. *** Only the Nicelanders' pie will do? *** Shouldn't Felix have thought to bring some power-up pies to help him survive any deadly encounters? Perhaps they would have been too cumbersome to carry, or Felix considered them redundant when his hammer repairs injuries, or there was no time to wait for a pie to bake, but it seems like something worth considering. *** Nope. If the defictionalized game is any indication, pies either give him more points or just makes him repair faster. So unlike Sonic's rings, it wouldn't do him much good. Besides, he's also not the most worldly of characters - it wouldn't occur to him to be that prepared. * If Vanellope was supposed to be a [[spoiler: [[BeautifulAllAlong Princess all along]], why is she in her track outfit on the side of the cabinet?]] ** As mentioned before, the programmers probably intended her to [[spoiler:wear the dress during royal duties in her castle, but she changed into a more tomboyish racing uniform whenever she raced. She probably used both outfits.]] ** Clothing alone does not make one [[spoiler:a princess]] anyway. *** [[spoiler:By God... she's a ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Princess Peach]] [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething who actually does something!]]'']] ** [[spoiler:Her racing outfit is the one that players would actually see her in.]] ** Or maybe [[spoiler: she was ''always'' programmed to give up the monarchy for a constitutional democracy, and that's why her personality didn't change after the reset like the others did]]. *** Intersting but headache-inducing. With no story mode that we know of, why would Sugar Rush's devopers waste time and money on something that is not useful? *** Lots of games with no 'story mode' have a backstory anyway. Probably the premise of Sugar Rush is that the princess is holding some kind of racing tournament for a prize. * One of the villains' complaints is losing all the time to make the hero look good. The way most arcade games are structured, [[NintendoHard villains win so often that losses are almost statistically insignificant]]. ** Maybe it would ''end'' this way. But the first levels of an arcade are usually the easiest ones, so by the time the villain won, they would have lost several times. * Ralph is commonly said to be 30 years old, as that's how long his game has been around. Continuing the pattern, Vanellope and the other kids in ''Sugar Rush'' are actually 15 years old, despite them being 9 years old physically. Hence, the ''Sugar Rush'' kids are OlderThanTheyLook. While they'd be almost-legal in some areas, Sergeant Calhoun would not, being 1 week old. ** The ages of the physical game cabinets have nothing to do with the ages that their characters are programmed to be. (For example, Vanellope has been 9 [[ViolationOfCommonSense for 15 years]].) If the game worlds have a concept of "legality" in that sense, it would certainly be based on the latter. ** The age the characters are programed as is their physical and, most importantly, mental age. Unlike real people, they won't change from this, ever. * If Q*bert can understand English, as we see when Ralph chats to him, why does Felix bother with his "rusty" Q*bertese? ** Maybe Felix doesn't know Q*bert can understand English. Or perhaps Q*bert ''doesn't'' understand English. Ralph gave Q*bert a Pac-Man cherry the first time; even if Ralph was speaking Latin, free food is free food. And the second time, Ralph ran off to Hero's Duty. Q*bert may not have understood ''what'' Ralph said, but he can connect that Ralph was game-jumping. ** Felix is a very polite person. It's more polite to speak to someone in their native language if you can, so he does because that's the kind of guy he is. ** He's also a little bit of a show-off (not that that makes him any less nice or polite). It's more impressive to speak to someone in their native language in front of folks who can't understand it. * This is probably more of a {{Headscratcher}} but I thought it could go here. Anyway, before [[spoiler:Turbo gets incinerated, he starts glitching between his regular persona and the King Candy persona. The Candy one is drawn to the light, but the Turbo one is trying to pull himself away. Is it possible that if he had stuck to being Turbo the whole time, he could've consciously gotten himself out of there?]] ** [[spoiler:The Cy-Bug-hybrid resembles King Candy more than Turbo. The King Candy head/persona could be the default appearance of the hybrid, and thus be linked to the Cy-Bug programming, while the Turbo head/persona is still independent. So the Cy-Bug linked King Candy would be attracted to the makeshift beacon, and Turbo wouldn't.]] * There's no ArtShift for ''Sugar Rush'' as there is for ''Fix-it Felix Jr'' when viewed from outside the consoles. Instead, ''Sugar Rush'' has the same "high definition" as ''Hero's Duty''. ''Sugar Rush'' was supposed to come out in 1997. Shouldn't the graphics of ''Sugar Rush'' resemble the {{Nintendo64}}'s graphics or even the [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super NES]]? I wouldn't have minded seeing the characters in a low-polygon "blocky" art style. ** At least the browser minigame has 1997 graphics. ** Perhaps in 1997 it was rendered with those kinds of graphics, but as it became popular it got some graphical enhancements. On top of that, it is a racing game. One would need to see as much as they could, and having high definition graphics would help with that. So it got retooled and revamped and enhanced graphically once more powerful technology was available. Meanwhile, Fix-It Felix Jr. is a classic just like VideoGame/DonkeyKong, meaning 8-bit, and should be preserved as such. After all, it was such a hit that it stayed put for thirty years, so they would want to keep it as it is. That's this troper's guess, anyway. *** If that's the case, then [[spoiler: if Vanellope was a glitch during the upgrade, why did she get an upgrade? Unless Turbo took over sometime ''after'' the upgrade?]] ** Then again, it may be possible that the game's been done with DigitizedSprites. ** Do note that Donkey Kong Country was released in 1994 and used pre-rendered CGI graphics. While not as fancy as modern day stuff, it was still fairly high quality. CGI is, yup, OlderThanTheyThink. ** Textured polygons weren't uncommon in 1997. Just to give two examples, ''Ridge Racer'' was released in 1993 and ''SanFranciscoRush'' came out in 1997. * What are characters from Mario and Sonic games doing here? They're not arcade games. ** During the {{Time Passes Montage}} where we see all the games that have been in the arcade over the past 30 years, the mildly obscure game {{Sonic The Fighters}} can be seen, so it's safe to assume it's still there. Bowser could potentially be from the Vs. Super Mario Bros. arcade game. *** There was a Mario Kart arcade game that came out a few years ago, and there are NES arcade machines. ** Mario originally appears in Donkey Kong (where he was called Jumpman), Donkey Kong Jr. (where he was given the name Mario), Mario Bros. (sans Super), and Vs. Super Mario Bros. He was even in Vs. Wrecking Crew. Mario, not from an arcade game? Hmph. * Considering that Mr. Litwak only puts up an out-of-order notice when a customer notifies him of it (makes sense, as I'd assume he's very busy), and ''[=TurboTime=]'' was decommissioned at the same time as ''[=RoadBlasters=]'', this means that people still cared enough about Turbo and his game to see if something's wrong with ''[=TurboTime=]'' almost as soon as ''[=RoadBlasters=]'' crashed. It fits with Turbo's nature that he can't stand being anywhere other than the top--people still loved him (and likely way more than Ralph had hoped for), but second-best made him furious. * Sonic's credits scene has a bit of a oddity: he rolls off a ramp and hits Dr. Eggman's Eggmobile from Angel Island. That machine isn't protected by spikes nor shoots its fireballs, and yet it is Sonic, in ''rolling mode'', who takes damage. Didn't people learn anything from ''Sonic 2006''? * One thing about when [[spoiler: Princess]] Vanelope stated she was going to have the everyone who was mean to her executed. Why would this be such a big deal? They're inside their own game, they'll respawn at the start of the next race. It's not like we didn't see at least two racers die in the big finale, one by being suffocated by Apple Pie A la Mode, the other by crashing straight through a giant glass ball full of gumballs and jawbreakers, the hardest thing in the game world. A friend suggested she might have them taken outside the game to do it, or edit their game code, but is that the first thing they'd think of? Surely the instant reaction is an in-game reaction? ** Um, you're confusing reality with a video game world. Things that would result in serious injury or even death in real life can, depending on the type of game, be brushed off by the characters as almost nothing. Just play a Mario Kart game and you'll see just how far it and Sugar Rush are from reality. While the characters from Sugar Rush are in their own game I doubt they even could die from either attack items or obstacles since they're not programmed to. Even if they can die (and respawn) I doubt death is a very pleasant experience, hence why they'd be freaking out. ** They just saw the entire world nearly destroyed by Cybugs, and Vanellope might well have the power to execute them ''permanently'', as far as they know. Plus, they're clearly emotionally unstable and illogical from having their memories returned and realizing that they've been persecuting the rightful ruler for years on end. Taffyta has trouble keeping from crying, even. * Turbo was shown as having the KonamiCode written on a Tappers napkin. He used it to game-jump and wreak all kinds of havoc, to the point where only blind, dumb luck stopped him. Now, here's the question - where did he learn that code in the first place? Does someone ''else'' have that code, destroyed another game (or several other games), and just managed to avoid detection by not being a complete AttentionWhore? ** It's possible that Turbo guessed the code, through trial and error, and he has been messing up racing games for some time. He got lucky and found the perfect game to infiltrate at the same time that he finally figured out how to hack the game's code. Or there could b another character out there who has "gone Turbo" and passed on the code to Turbo. Which means it is also possible that more characters may have that code. And there are more characters pushed to the side like Vanellope. * The QBert characters get into Fix-it-Felix Jr. on the bonus stage... but if they die in the game, don't they die for good? ** Yes, but given that Ralph is routinely thrown off the building with no harm while Felix is a OneHitPointWonder, Felix is probably the only one vulnerable to death. *** All the Q*Bert bad guys helping Ralph are perfectly safe; remember, all Felix has is a magic hammer that fixes stuff. He can't heal anyone to death. Q*Bert himself I'm not so sure about. * This borders on FridgeBrilliance and WildMassGuessing: Fix-it Felix Jr. is obviously a stand-in for Donkey Kong. While originally a villain, Donkey Kong was able to be a hero of his own game. Wouldn't it be interesting if Ralph had a talk with DK? * Gene was the one who taunnted Ralph into retrireving a hero medal from another game in the first place. How come Ralph didn't call him out on that when Gene was giving him crap about how his desire to be a hero for once doomed the whole game? ** Could be that he's too depressed to even bother caring anymore. ** Also, Gene was probably just expecting Ralph to just quietly go into another game, pick up the medal, and go home. Which is exactly what ''would've'' happened...but because Ralph forgot about a Cy-Bug, it turned into a gigantic catastrophe. ''That's'' the part Gene is probably chewing Ralph out over, not over having gotten a medal at all. *** No, Gene made it pretty clear he never expected Ralph to try it ''at all''. As far as the movie shows no one else but Calhoun, Felix, and the rest of the Hero's Duty characters knew about the bugs getting loose into Sugar Rush. Ralph himself even thought the bug he brought in was dead, and Felix and Calhoun certainly didn't have time to tell anyone, so unless the rest of the Hero's Duty soldiers left the game to spread an alert (unlikely) there's no way Gene could have even known about it. He and the rest of the Nicelanders certainly wouldn't have calmly packed up and left their game if they knew about the threat of the bugs getting loose. * Just a small little nitpicky problem, but if the game Sonic and Eggman come from is SonicTheFighters... then why is Eggman wearing his Post-SonicAdventure outfit? ** They probably decided to depict him that way to make him more recognizable to a newer audience. Sonic's also using his new design and voice actor, rather than the classic style Sonic from that game. * Why is Smoke at the Bad-Anon meeting? He's FaceHeelRevolvingDoor in Mortal Kombat, and he's in his good guy form. ** Maybe he's from ''Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. He's a bad guy in that one but his good guy skin appears as an alternate skin. * It's rather depressing to realize that ''Tapper'' is almost the only video game, ever, in which people show up just to hang out. If not for that one obscure 80's game about slinging suds, arcade characters would have nowhere to go to relax and unwind without the immediate threat of irreversible death. (Well, I suppose they could spend their time hanging out in ''Dance Dance Revolution,'' but personally I'd rather risk irreversible death.) [[/folder]]

** Her bio discribes her as having been "one of the best racers besides King Candy". Which means she was likely some sort of [[TheRival rival character]] or TheLancer, she fits all the common criteria - acting tough and arrogant while concealing emotional vulnerability etc, contrasting hair style and color... Now, consider that this type of characrer tends to have a complicated, strong bond with the protagonist. She may have essentially woken up to find that she totally bullied/turned on on one of her best friends without knowing it.

** King Candy was bound by cybug code after, and went flying into the beacon as a result, all the while Turbo trying to stop. the implication is that the Cybug assimilated king candy, but Turbo was effectively wearing that code as a skin, so could take over the bug from within.

*** My working theory is that her teleportation is a combination of an ability she's supposed to have in the game (like Candlehead lighting the cherry bombs) that she forgot about and slight remaining damage from being reduced to a glitch. It probably had some kind of pretty animation that made it work with the candy theme of the world (like she might disappear and reappear in a cloud of sparkles and sugar or something), but having [[spoiler:King Candy try to get rid of her resulted in ruining that animation. This left her teleporting in the form of blue pixilation instead. That's why Moppet Girl could activate her "glitch" with a button press at the end of the film and she could leave her game, but she could also still teleport around the place]]. Her ability remains, but the pretty animation is lost.

** Perhaps in 1997 it was rendered with those kinds of graphics, but as it became popular it got some graphical enhancements. On top of that, it is a racing game. One would need to see as much as they could, and having high definition graphics would help with that. So it got retooled and revamped and enhanced graphically once more powerful technology was available. Meanwhile, Fix-It Felix Jr. is a classic just like DonkeyKong, meaning 8-bit, and should be preserved as such. After all, it was such a hit that it stayed put for thirty years, so they would want to keep it as it is. That's this troper's guess, anyway.

** The memories may be real in some form, as the same wedding chapel from Calhoun's traumatic memory appears in the ending. Perhaps non-interactive cutscenes such as those regarding backstory are merely "filmed" "filmed" once, then characters like Brad and General Hologram retire to pixel paradise or something. * [[spoiler:Turbo's]] plan is pretty clever within the game, but kinda falls apart outside the fourth wall. [[spoiler:''Sugar Rush'' must surely be played elsewhere than that one arcade. If Turbo simply hasn't usurped the identity of an existing character, and even then, odds are ''someone'' is going to notice that this particular console doesn't follow the basic plotline of others of its make. It's not just that Vanellope is absent as a racer, she's outright absent as a character when she's on the console artwork.]] ** You have to remember that the game only has 9 racers on every given day, and they get changed up daily. Someone that played Sugar Rush at another arcade would assume that she just didn't get picked that day at that particular machine. ** Also, there were arcade machines that could be re-programmed/updated with new code via flash ROM, and later, there were arcade machines that could be hooked up to landlines for remote updates. And some arcade machines were time-locked; it would take months for a new character to actually appear. And, given the age of Sugar Rush, at some point, only the die hard fans would really start nitpicking. ** More likely, wouldn't people who have played ''Sugar Rush'' in a different arcade notice that this copy [[spoiler: has a completely new character? King Candy does not exist in any other copy of the game, so players would be more likely to notice the strange addition than the absence of another character. And if this console was the only one with a "unique character" it would have garnered a lot more popularity and attention for the arcade because of its rarity, which we didn't see in the movie.]] *** Sugar Rush has been in Litwak's arcade for ''fifteen years'' and still has people lining up to play it literally all day long. I think we ''did'' see the "popularity and attention" in the movie. ** Plus, if you never noticed, in the commercials it explicitly states that these games are only available at Litwak's arcade. ** Also, in real life, there had/have been some Easter Eggs and hidden secrets that have remained so for over a decade. So it's possible. ** They'd also wonder why no other Vanellope uses the kart she has at Litwak's. * Won't people be curious that King Candy permanently vanished from the game and got replaced by Vanellope? I get the whole random generator thing, but permanently replacing a character is sure to raise an eyebrow. ** On a related note, what about the new bonus round for Fix-It-Felix Jr. just appearing? And with characters from unrelated games? Won't anyone get suspicious how that was just added? They also might be curious how no other Fix-It-Felix Jr. game in the world has it. *** Worst case scenario, everyone assumes someone other than themselves hacked the games. Since nothing is actually broken and, most importantly, the customers are happy, there isn't going to be much reason to do more than shrug at an oddity. *** Yup! That particular Fix-It-Felix Jr. machine, the only one in the world with the new bonus level? It's going to be considered ''awesome'' and make that machine a collectible. Litwak is probably refusing offers for it because it's drawing people to his arcade like nobody's business. Heck, in the last scene with Moppet Girl playing Fix-It-Felix Jr., we see that almost everyone else in the arcade has crowded around to gape over her shoulders at the 'new bonus level'. *** When players are seeing the new bonus level for the first time, one of them says something like "I can't believe we never noticed this before!" They just assume this bonus level always existed, and is just so hard to find that they've never unlocked it before. ** In real life, there had/have been some Easter Eggs and hidden secrets that have remained so for over a decade. So it's possible. And it's possible that they might think that for this one machine, the Easter Egg was solved. More over, SR was made at just about the end of the time when game developers weren't really credited with their games or even allowed to talk about them. So if anyone asks, they could very well not know. ** Many real-life arcade games contain DIP switches or secret menus that allow the owner to customize certain settings to their liking. Most of these settings are related to difficulty, in the form of number of lives, coins per play, or points to an extra life, but some games allow changes to graphics modes, sound effects, or even whole characters or levels. Gamers may have assumed that when he had maintenance done on the faulty games, Litwak started adjusting the DIP switches enough to change the experience, unlocking the bonus rounds of Fix-It Felix, Jr., and switching from a "localization" of Sugar Rush's monarch back to the original Japanese version's character model and powerset which had been left in there. * Are there any real arcades that list the price on video games by number of quarters? I've definitely seen it that way on pinball machines, but most arcades I've played just say the price directly. ** They might have changed that practice in recent times, but the x quarters thing is definitely real. Litwak's arcade seems to be a bit dated compared to what you might find in a mall or something, so it's more likely his machines would use such a pricing system. ** I thought that was the only way the price was listed. But then it's been a while since I've been to anything resembling an arcade. * Why are there TemporaryPlatform branches (on the candy trees) in a racing game like ''Sugar Rush''? No one's going to be walking... ** Maybe from [[spoiler: King Candy messing with the code of the game]]. ** Unused minigame? *** Or a fully functional minigame that we just don't ''see'' used. *** Well, in the credits, we ''do'' see Ralph and Vanellope hopping across some types of gummies in an HD pixel gameplay, so... ** Maybe it was from a ''Sugar Rush'' platformer that came out before ''Speedway'' did. ** It's probably a racing hazard on one of the courses, and trees outside have the same properties. That one branch Calhoun and Felix walked on was huge. ** It could also be used on shortcuts where you 'break' through branches to get to said shortcut. In which case, it's not that double stripes disappear when stood on, they just disappear when collided with in order to mimic breaking away. * Rail shooters are the one genre where you can bank on having unlimited ammunition. Why doesn't Calhoun have it? ** There's a Hero's Duty game on the Disney website. IIRC, it doesn't have unlimited ammo. *** The only unlimited ammo in the real Hero's Duty games is for your starting weapon, the one that deals the least damage with the lowest firing rate, naturally. ** Because Calhoun's outside her home game at the time. Stuff doesn't respawn when you're outside your game. ** Possible {{FridgeBrilliance}} brought on by reading this just now: Because she's an NPC. Think of all the events in Time Crisis or House of the Dead or what have you where you need to cover your teammates while they reload. [[spoiler: The First-Person Shooter]] might have had infinite ammo, but it makes sense to me that Calhoun and her team wouldn't. * What would have happened if [[spoiler:Vanellope had crossed the finish line during the Cy-Bug attack? Would they be deleted when the game reset, or would they have continued to destroy the restored world?]] ** [[spoiler: As Ralph put it, there was no finish line to cross.]] *** [[spoiler:The Cy-Bugs probably would have been deleted, but that would have required the same steps - Ralph to wreck the debris, Felix to fix the finish line and then Vanellope to cross it - which there simply wasn't enough time for in the middle of the Cy-Bug attack.]] *** [[spoiler:Probably not, Ralph, Felix, and Calhoun weren't affected.]] *** [[spoiler:In that vein, what probably happened was that the reset only reboots the existing code in the game itself.

And if that Cy-Bug had even the slightest effect on his personality, then it's quite probable he couldn't think beyond that motivation. * Okay, what about this: The reason Vanellope glitches is because [[spoiler:her code was tampered with and all but destroyed... But when Vanellope crosses the finish line, she supposedly resets the game back to its factory settings. So how come she can STILL glitch? Did she master some cosmic, matrix-like force... or is it that the game not 100% better, and [[FridgeHorror Turbo is still hiding in the code somewhere]]...?]] ** [[spoiler: Because when she was "glitched", she was already aware of some of her dummied out programming. Teleporting was ''never'' a glitch, it was ''always'' her character ability. Ralph and Co. just continue to call it a glitch because that's what they're used to calling it.]] *** [[spoiler: This makes the most sense to me. Near the end of the movie, it looks like Moppet Girl has to push a button on the console in order to teleport. There might be a timer associated with it too. So I'm thinking that the short teleport was her special ability and she lost control of it when Turbo messed with the code.]] ** Alternatively, reset or not, her code is still damaged. [[spoiler:Turbo rather forcefully tried to disconnect her. If the game had bounced back to factory settings completely, their memories would reset completely, Vanellope included. The default settings were restored, so Vanellope retains her glitching but the system rightfully treats her as the star racer.]] * Felix was in a jail cell in Sugar Rush, with bars clearly made of chocolate. Why didn't he just eat his way out? ** If the chocolate bars are strong enough to resist being broken with his hands, they're probably strong enough to resist breaking with his teeth, and he likely didn't have the time to melt them by licking them. ** The Wreck-It Ralph Wii game (of questionable canonicity) states that Felix is lactose intolerant, so maybe he couldn't eat the chocolate without making himself sick? ** A Missed Moment of Awesome: Sugar Rush is made of sweets. Felix gets an energy boost from pies. Why didn't they include a sequence where Felix was exhausted and ate a gigantic piece of pie ''in'' Sugar Rush so he could do awesome shit!? Probably too obvious. *** Only the Nicelanders' pie will do? *** Shouldn't Felix have thought to bring some power-up pies to help him survive any deadly encounters? Perhaps they would have been too cumbersome to carry, or Felix considered them redundant when his hammer repairs injuries, or there was no time to wait for a pie to bake, but it seems like something worth considering. *** Nope. If the defictionalized game is any indication, pies either give him more points or just makes him repair faster. So unlike Sonic's rings, it wouldn't do him much good. Besides, he's also not the most worldly of characters - it wouldn't occur to him to be that prepared. * If Vanellope was supposed to be a [[spoiler: [[BeautifulAllAlong Princess all along]], why is she in her track outfit on the side of the cabinet?]] ** As mentioned before, the programmers probably intended her to [[spoiler:wear the dress during royal duties in her castle, but she changed into a more tomboyish racing uniform whenever she raced. She probably used both outfits.]] ** Clothing alone does not make one [[spoiler:a princess]] anyway. *** [[spoiler:By God... she's a ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Princess Peach]] [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething who actually does something!]]'']] ** [[spoiler:Her racing outfit is the one that players would actually see her in.]] ** Or maybe [[spoiler: she was ''always'' programmed to give up the monarchy for a constitutional democracy, and that's why her personality didn't change after the reset like the others did]]. *** Intersting but headache-inducing. With no story mode that we know of, why would Sugar Rush's devopers waste time and money on something that is not useful? *** Lots of games with no 'story mode' have a backstory anyway. Probably the premise of Sugar Rush is that the princess is holding some kind of racing tournament for a prize. * One of the villains' complaints is losing all the time to make the hero look good. The way most arcade games are structured, [[NintendoHard villains win so often that losses are almost statistically insignificant]]. ** Maybe it would ''end'' this way. But the first levels of an arcade are usually the easiest ones, so by the time the villain won, they would have lost several times. * Ralph is commonly said to be 30 years old, as that's how long his game has been around. Continuing the pattern, Vanellope and the other kids in ''Sugar Rush'' are actually 15 years old, despite them being 9 years old physically. Hence, the ''Sugar Rush'' kids are OlderThanTheyLook. While they'd be almost-legal in some areas, Sergeant Calhoun would not, being 1 week old. ** The ages of the physical game cabinets have nothing to do with the ages that their characters are programmed to be. (For example, Vanellope has been 9 [[ViolationOfCommonSense for 15 years]].) If the game worlds have a concept of "legality" in that sense, it would certainly be based on the latter. ** The age the characters are programed as is their physical and, most importantly, mental age. Unlike real people, they won't change from this, ever. * If Q*bert can understand English, as we see when Ralph chats to him, why does Felix bother with his "rusty" Q*bertese? ** Maybe Felix doesn't know Q*bert can understand English. Or perhaps Q*bert ''doesn't'' understand English. Ralph gave Q*bert a Pac-Man cherry the first time; even if Ralph was speaking Latin, free food is free food. And the second time, Ralph ran off to Hero's Duty. Q*bert may not have understood ''what'' Ralph said, but he can connect that Ralph was game-jumping. ** Felix is a very polite person. It's more polite to speak to someone in their native language if you can, so he does because that's the kind of guy he is. * This is probably more of a {{Headscratcher}} but I thought it could go here. Anyway, before [[spoiler:Turbo gets incinerated, he starts glitching between his regular persona and the King Candy persona. The Candy one is drawn to the light, but the Turbo one is trying to pull himself away. Is it possible that if he had stuck to being Turbo the whole time, he could've consciously gotten himself out of there?]] ** [[spoiler:The Cy-Bug-hybrid resembles King Candy more than Turbo. The King Candy head/persona could be the default appearance of the hybrid, and thus be linked to the Cy-Bug programming, while the Turbo head/persona is still independent. So the Cy-Bug linked King Candy would be attracted to the makeshift beacon, and Turbo wouldn't.]] * There's no ArtShift for ''Sugar Rush'' as there is for ''Fix-it Felix Jr'' when viewed from outside the consoles. Instead, ''Sugar Rush'' has the same "high definition" as ''Hero's Duty''. ''Sugar Rush'' was supposed to come out in 1997. Shouldn't the graphics of ''Sugar Rush'' resemble the {{Nintendo64}}'s graphics or even the [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super NES]]? I wouldn't have minded seeing the characters in a low-polygon "blocky" art style. ** At least the browser minigame has 1997 graphics. ** Perhaps in 1997 it was rendered with those kinds of graphics, but as it became popular it got some graphical enhancements. On top of that, it is a racing game. One would need to see as much as they could, and having high definition graphics would help with that. So it got retooled and revamped and enhanced graphically once more powerful technology was available. Meanwhile, Fix-It Felix Jr. is a classic just like DonkeyKong, meaning 8-bit, and should be preserved as such. After all, it was such a hit that it stayed put for thirty years, so they would want to keep it as it is. That's this troper's guess, anyway. *** If that's the case, then [[spoiler: if Vanellope was a glitch during the upgrade, why did she get an upgrade? Unless Turbo took over sometime ''after'' the upgrade?]] ** Then again, it may be possible that the game's been done with DigitizedSprites. ** Do note that Donkey Kong Country was released in 1994 and used pre-rendered CGI graphics. While not as fancy as modern day stuff, it was still fairly high quality. CGI is, yup, OlderThanTheyThink. ** Textured polygons weren't uncommon in 1997. Just to give two examples, ''Ridge Racer'' was released in 1993 and ''SanFranciscoRush'' came out in 1997. * What are characters from Mario and Sonic games doing here? They're not arcade games. ** During the {{Time Passes Montage}} where we see all the games that have been in the arcade over the past 30 years, the mildly obscure game {{Sonic The Fighters}} can be seen, so it's safe to assume it's still there. Bowser could potentially be from the Vs. Super Mario Bros. arcade game. *** There was a Mario Kart arcade game that came out a few years ago, and there are NES arcade machines. ** Mario originally appears in Donkey Kong (where he was called Jumpman), Donkey Kong Jr. (where he was given the name Mario), Mario Bros. (sans Super), and Vs. Super Mario Bros. He was even in Vs. Wrecking Crew. Mario, not from an arcade game? Hmph. * Considering that Mr. Litwak only puts up an out-of-order notice when a customer notifies him of it (makes sense, as I'd assume he's very busy), and ''[=TurboTime=]'' was decommissioned at the same time as ''[=RoadBlasters=]'', this means that people still cared enough about Turbo and his game to see if something's wrong with ''[=TurboTime=]'' almost as soon as ''[=RoadBlasters=]'' crashed. It fits with Turbo's nature that he can't stand being anywhere other than the top--people still loved him (and likely way more than Ralph had hoped for), but second-best made him furious. * Sonic's credits scene has a bit of a oddity: he rolls off a ramp and hits Dr. Eggman's Eggmobile from Angel Island. That machine isn't protected by spikes nor shoots its fireballs, and yet it is Sonic, in ''rolling mode'', who takes damage. Didn't people learn anything from ''Sonic 2006''? * One thing about when [[spoiler: Princess]] Vanelope stated she was going to have the everyone who was mean to her executed. Why would this be such a big deal? They're inside their own game, they'll respawn at the start of the next race. It's not like we didn't see at least two racers die in the big finale, one by being suffocated by Apple Pie A la Mode, the other by crashing straight through a giant glass ball full of gumballs and jawbreakers, the hardest thing in the game world. A friend suggested she might have them taken outside the game to do it, or edit their game code, but is that the first thing they'd think of? Surely the instant reaction is an in-game reaction? ** Um, you're confusing reality with a video game world. Things that would result in serious injury or even death in real life can, depending on the type of game, be brushed off by the characters as almost nothing. Just play a Mario Kart game and you'll see just how far it and Sugar Rush are from reality. While the characters from Sugar Rush are in their own game I doubt they even could die from either attack items or obstacles since they're not programmed to. Even if they can die (and respawn) I doubt death is a very pleasant experience, hence why they'd be freaking out. ** They just saw the entire world nearly destroyed by Cybugs, and Vanellope might well have the power to execute them ''permanently'', as far as they know. Plus, they're clearly emotionally unstable and illogical from having their memories returned and realizing that they've been persecuting the rightful ruler for years on end. Taffyta has trouble keeping from crying, even. * Turbo was shown as having the KonamiCode written on a Tappers napkin. He used it to game-jump and wreak all kinds of havoc, to the point where only blind, dumb luck stopped him. Now, here's the question - where did he learn that code in the first place? Does someone ''else'' have that code, destroyed another game (or several other games), and just managed to avoid detection by not being a complete AttentionWhore? * The QBert characters get into Fix-it-Felix Jr. on the bonus stage... but if they die in the game, don't they die for good? ** Yes, but given that Ralph is routinely thrown off the building with no harm while Felix is a OneHitPointWonder, Felix is probably the only one vulnerable to death. *** All the Q*Bert bad guys helping Ralph are perfectly safe; remember, all Felix has is a magic hammer that fixes stuff. He can't heal anyone to death. Q*Bert himself I'm not so sure about. * This borders on FridgeBrilliance and WildMassGuessing: Fix-it Felix Jr. is obviously a stand-in for Donkey Kong. While originally a villain, Donkey Kong was able to be a hero of his own game. Wouldn't it be interesting if Ralph had a talk with DK? * Gene was the one who taunnted Ralph into retrireving a hero medal from another game in the first place. How come Ralph didn't call him out on that when Gene was giving him crap about how his desire to be a hero for once doomed the whole game? * Just a small little nitpicky problem, but if the game Sonic and Eggman come from is SonicTheFighters... then why is Eggman wearing his Post-SonicAdventure outfit?outfit?[[/folder]]

** The memories may be real in some form, as the same wedding chapel from Calhoun's traumatic memory appears in the ending. Perhaps non-interactive cutscenes such as those regarding backstory are merely "filmed" once, then characters like Brad and General Hologram retire to pixel paradise or something. * [[spoiler:Turbo's]] plan is pretty clever within the game, but kinda falls apart outside the fourth wall. [[spoiler:''Sugar Rush'' must surely be played elsewhere than that one arcade. If Turbo simply hasn't usurped the identity of an existing character, and even then, odds are ''someone'' is going to notice that this particular console doesn't follow the basic plotline of others of its make. It's not just that Vanellope is absent as a racer, she's outright absent as a character when she's on the console artwork.]] ** You have to remember that the game only has 9 racers on every given day, and they get changed up daily. Someone that played Sugar Rush at another arcade would assume that she just didn't get picked that day at that particular machine. ** Also, there were arcade machines that could be re-programmed/updated with new code via flash ROM, and later, there were arcade machines that could be hooked up to landlines for remote updates. And some arcade machines were time-locked; it would take months for a new character to actually appear. And, given the age of Sugar Rush, at some point, only the die hard fans would really start nitpicking. ** More likely, wouldn't people who have played ''Sugar Rush'' in a different arcade notice that this copy [[spoiler: has a completely new character? King Candy does not exist in any other copy of the game, so players would be more likely to notice the strange addition than the absence of another character. And if this console was the only one with a "unique character" it would have garnered a lot more popularity and attention for the arcade because of its rarity, which we didn't see in the movie.]] *** Sugar Rush has been in Litwak's arcade for ''fifteen years'' and still has people lining up to play it literally all day long. I think we ''did'' see the "popularity and attention" in the movie. ** Plus, if you never noticed, in the commercials it explicitly states that these games are only available at Litwak's arcade. ** Also, in real life, there had/have been some Easter Eggs and hidden secrets that have remained so for over a decade. So it's possible. ** They'd also wonder why no other Vanellope uses the kart she has at Litwak's. * Won't people be curious that King Candy permanently vanished from the game and got replaced by Vanellope? I get the whole random generator thing, but permanently replacing a character is sure to raise an eyebrow. ** On a related note, what about the new bonus round for Fix-It-Felix Jr. just appearing? And with characters from unrelated games? Won't anyone get suspicious how that was just added? They also might be curious how no other Fix-It-Felix Jr. game in the world has it. *** Worst case scenario, everyone assumes someone other than themselves hacked the games. Since nothing is actually broken and, most importantly, the customers are happy, there isn't going to be much reason to do more than shrug at an oddity. *** Yup! That particular Fix-It-Felix Jr. machine, the only one in the world with the new bonus level? It's going to be considered ''awesome'' and make that machine a collectible. Litwak is probably refusing offers for it because it's drawing people to his arcade like nobody's business. Heck, in the last scene with Moppet Girl playing Fix-It-Felix Jr., we see that almost everyone else in the arcade has crowded around to gape over her shoulders at the 'new bonus level'. *** When players are seeing the new bonus level for the first time, one of them says something like "I can't believe we never noticed this before!" They just assume this bonus level always existed, and is just so hard to find that they've never unlocked it before. ** In real life, there had/have been some Easter Eggs and hidden secrets that have remained so for over a decade. So it's possible. And it's possible that they might think that for this one machine, the Easter Egg was solved. More over, SR was made at just about the end of the time when game developers weren't really credited with their games or even allowed to talk about them. So if anyone asks, they could very well not know. ** Many real-life arcade games contain DIP switches or secret menus that allow the owner to customize certain settings to their liking. Most of these settings are related to difficulty, in the form of number of lives, coins per play, or points to an extra life, but some games allow changes to graphics modes, sound effects, or even whole characters or levels. Gamers may have assumed that when he had maintenance done on the faulty games, Litwak started adjusting the DIP switches enough to change the experience, unlocking the bonus rounds of Fix-It Felix, Jr., and switching from a "localization" of Sugar Rush's monarch back to the original Japanese version's character model and powerset which had been left in there. * Are there any real arcades that list the price on video games by number of quarters? I've definitely seen it that way on pinball machines, but most arcades I've played just say the price directly. ** They might have changed that practice in recent times, but the x quarters thing is definitely real. Litwak's arcade seems to be a bit dated compared to what you might find in a mall or something, so it's more likely his machines would use such a pricing system. ** I thought that was the only way the price was listed. But then it's been a while since I've been to anything resembling an arcade. * Why are there TemporaryPlatform branches (on the candy trees) in a racing game like ''Sugar Rush''? No one's going to be walking... ** Maybe from [[spoiler: King Candy messing with the code of the game]]. ** Unused minigame? *** Or a fully functional minigame that we just don't ''see'' used. *** Well, in the credits, we ''do'' see Ralph and Vanellope hopping across some types of gummies in an HD pixel gameplay, so... ** Maybe it was from a ''Sugar Rush'' platformer that came out before ''Speedway'' did. ** It's probably a racing hazard on one of the courses, and trees outside have the same properties. That one branch Calhoun and Felix walked on was huge. ** It could also be used on shortcuts where you 'break' through branches to get to said shortcut. In which case, it's not that double stripes disappear when stood on, they just disappear when collided with in order to mimic breaking away. * Rail shooters are the one genre where you can bank on having unlimited ammunition. Why doesn't Calhoun have it? ** There's a Hero's Duty game on the Disney website. IIRC, it doesn't have unlimited ammo. *** The only unlimited ammo in the real Hero's Duty games is for your starting weapon, the one that deals the least damage with the lowest firing rate, naturally. ** Because Calhoun's outside her home game at the time. Stuff doesn't respawn when you're outside your game. ** Possible {{FridgeBrilliance}} brought on by reading this just now: Because she's an NPC. Think of all the events in Time Crisis or House of the Dead or what have you where you need to cover your teammates while they reload. [[spoiler: The First-Person Shooter]] might have had infinite ammo, but it makes sense to me that Calhoun and her team wouldn't. * What would have happened if [[spoiler:Vanellope had crossed the finish line during the Cy-Bug attack? Would they be deleted when the game reset, or would they have continued to destroy the restored world?]] ** [[spoiler: As Ralph put it, there was no finish line to cross.]] *** [[spoiler:The Cy-Bugs probably would have been deleted, but that would have required the same steps - Ralph to wreck the debris, Felix to fix the finish line and then Vanellope to cross it - which there simply wasn't enough time for in the middle of the Cy-Bug attack.]] *** [[spoiler:Probably not, Ralph, Felix, and Calhoun weren't affected.]] *** [[spoiler:In that vein, what probably happened was that the reset only reboots the existing code in the game itself. Ralph, Felix and Calhoun are all foreign code so the reset ignored them. The Cy-Bugs probably would have been ignored as well, unless the game recognized their candy-based structures as being 'weird' and got rid of them as a result. This also further explains why Vanellope's glitch isn't a glitch but a teleportation ability since the game didn't fix it in its reset (unless it is unfixable as a result of Candy/Turbo severing the links.)]] * Wouldn't the cars with ice cream themes melt? ** No more than cars made of food spoil. Or drive. * [[spoiler: What was Vanellope's original kart and 'theme'? Except for when she uses someone else's kart to save Ralph, she's always seen driving that mess they made in the factory. Aside from that pedal-driven thing in the beginning...]] ** [[spoiler: What kart do we know plays the opening bars of "Hail To The Chief" when you honk its horn?

Instead, ''Sugar Rush'' has the same "high definition" as ''Hero's Duty''. ''Sugar Rush'' was supposed to come out in 1997. Shouldn't the graphics of ''Sugar Rush'' resemble the {{Nintendo64}}'s graphics or even the [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super NES]]? I wouldn't have minded seeing the characters in a low-polygon "blocky" art style. ** At least the browser minigame has 1997 graphics. ** Perhaps in 1997 it was rendered with those kinds of graphics, but as it became popular it got some graphical enhancements. On top of that, it is a racing game. One would need to see as much as they could, and having high definition graphics would help with that. So it got retooled and revamped and enhanced graphically once more powerful technology was available. Meanwhile, Fix-It Felix Jr. is a classic just like DonkeyKong, meaning 8-bit, and should be preserved as such. After all, it was such a hit that it stayed put for thirty years, so they would want to keep it as it is. That's this troper's guess, anyway. *** If that's the case, then [[spoiler: if Vanellope was a glitch during the upgrade, why did she get an upgrade?

Just to give two examples, ''Ridge Racer'' was released in 1993 and ''SanFranciscoRush'' came out in 1997. * What are characters from Mario and Sonic games doing here? They're not arcade games. ** During the {{Time Passes Montage}} where we see all the games that have been in the arcade over the past 30 years, the mildly obscure game {{Sonic The Fighters}} can be seen, so it's safe to assume it's still there. Bowser could potentially be from the Vs. Super Mario Bros. arcade game. *** There was a Mario Kart arcade game that came out a few years ago, and there are NES arcade machines. ** Mario originally appears in Donkey Kong (where he was called Jumpman), Donkey Kong Jr. (where he was given the name Mario), Mario Bros. (sans Super), and Vs. Super Mario Bros. He was even in Vs. Wrecking Crew. Mario, not from an arcade game? Hmph. * Considering that Mr. Litwak only puts up an out-of-order notice when a customer notifies him of it (makes sense, as I'd assume he's very busy), and ''[=TurboTime=]'' was decommissioned at the same time as ''[=RoadBlasters=]'', this means that people still cared enough about Turbo and his game to see if something's wrong with ''[=TurboTime=]'' almost as soon as ''[=RoadBlasters=]'' crashed. It fits with Turbo's nature that he can't stand being anywhere other than the top--people still loved him (and likely way more than Ralph had hoped for), but second-best made him furious. * Sonic's credits scene has a bit of a oddity: he rolls off a ramp and hits Dr. Eggman's Eggmobile from Angel Island. That machine isn't protected by spikes nor shoots its fireballs, and yet it is Sonic, in ''rolling mode'', who takes damage. Didn't people learn anything from ''Sonic 2006''? * One thing about when [[spoiler: Princess]] Vanelope stated she was going to have the everyone who was mean to her executed. Why would this be such a big deal? They're inside their own game, they'll respawn at the start of the next race. It's not like we didn't see at least two racers die in the big finale, one by being suffocated by Apple Pie A la Mode, the other by crashing straight through a giant glass ball full of gumballs and jawbreakers, the hardest thing in the game world. A friend suggested she might have them taken outside the game to do it, or edit their game code, but is that the first thing they'd think of? Surely the instant reaction is an in-game reaction? ** Um, you're confusing reality with a video game world. Things that would result in serious injury or even death in real life can, depending on the type of game, be brushed off by the characters as almost nothing. Just play a Mario Kart game and you'll see just how far it and Sugar Rush are from reality. While the characters from Sugar Rush are in their own game I doubt they even could die from either attack items or obstacles since they're not programmed to. Even if they can die (and respawn) I doubt death is a very pleasant experience, hence why they'd be freaking out. ** They just saw the entire world nearly destroyed by Cybugs, and Vanellope might well have the power to execute them ''permanently'', as far as they know. Plus, they're clearly emotionally unstable and illogical from having their memories returned and realizing that they've been persecuting the rightful ruler for years on end. Taffyta has trouble keeping from crying, even. * Turbo was shown as having the KonamiCode written on a Tappers napkin. He used it to game-jump and wreak all kinds of havoc, to the point where only blind, dumb luck stopped him. Now, here's the question - where did he learn that code in the first place? Does someone ''else'' have that code, destroyed another game (or several other games), and just managed to avoid detection by not being a complete AttentionWhore? * The QBert characters get into Fix-it-Felix Jr. on the bonus stage... but if they die in the game, don't they die for good? ** Yes, but given that Ralph is routinely thrown off the building with no harm while Felix is a OneHitPointWonder, Felix is probably the only one vulnerable to death. *** All the Q*Bert bad guys helping Ralph are perfectly safe; remember, all Felix has is a magic hammer that fixes stuff. He can't heal anyone to death. Q*Bert himself I'm not so sure about. * This borders on FridgeBrilliance and WildMassGuessing: Fix-it Felix Jr. is obviously a stand-in for Donkey Kong.

** The memories may be real in some form, as the same wedding chapel from Calhoun's traumatic memory appears in the ending. Perhaps non-interactive cutscenes such as those regarding backstory are merely "filmed" once, then characters like Brad and General Hologram retire to pixel paradise or something. "filmed" * [[spoiler:Turbo's]] plan is pretty clever within the game, Just a small little nitpicky problem, but kinda falls apart outside the fourth wall. [[spoiler:''Sugar Rush'' must surely be played elsewhere than that one arcade. If Turbo simply hasn't usurped the identity of an existing character, and even then, odds are ''someone'' is going to notice that this particular console doesn't follow the basic plotline of others of its make. It's not just that Vanellope is absent as a racer, she's outright absent as a character when she's on the console artwork.]] ** You have to remember that if the game only has 9 racers on every given day, Sonic and they get changed up daily. Someone that played Sugar Rush at another arcade would assume that she just didn't get picked that day at that particular machine. ** Also, there were arcade machines that could be re-programmed/updated with new code via flash ROM, and later, there were arcade machines that could be hooked up to landlines for remote updates. And some arcade machines were time-locked; it would take months for a new character to actually appear. And, given the age of Sugar Rush, at some point, only the die hard fans would really start nitpicking. ** More likely, wouldn't people who have played ''Sugar Rush'' in a different arcade notice that this copy [[spoiler: has a completely new character? King Candy does not exist in any other copy of the game, so players would be more likely to notice the strange addition than the absence of another character. And if this console was the only one with a "unique character" it would have garnered a lot more popularity and attention for the arcade because of its rarity, which we didn't see in the movie.]] *** Sugar Rush has been in Litwak's arcade for ''fifteen years'' and still has people lining up to play it literally all day long. I think we ''did'' see the "popularity and attention" in the movie. ** Plus, if you never noticed, in the commercials it explicitly states that these games are only available at Litwak's arcade. ** Also, in real life, there had/have been some Easter Eggs and hidden secrets that have remained so for over a decade. So it's possible. ** They'd also wonder why no other Vanellope uses the kart she has at Litwak's. * Won't people be curious that King Candy permanently vanished Eggman come from the game and got replaced by Vanellope? I get the whole random generator thing, but permanently replacing a character is sure to raise an eyebrow. ** On a related note, what about the new bonus round for Fix-It-Felix Jr. just appearing? And with characters from unrelated games? Won't anyone get suspicious how that was just added? They also might be curious how no other Fix-It-Felix Jr. game in the world has it. *** Worst case scenario, everyone assumes someone other than themselves hacked the games. Since nothing is actually broken and, most importantly, the customers are happy, there isn't going to be much reason to do more than shrug at an oddity. *** Yup! That particular Fix-It-Felix Jr. machine, the only one in the world with the new bonus level? It's going to be considered ''awesome'' and make that machine a collectible. Litwak is probably refusing offers for it because it's drawing people to his arcade like nobody's business. Heck, in the last scene with Moppet Girl playing Fix-It-Felix Jr., we see that almost everyone else in the arcade has crowded around to gape over her shoulders at the 'new bonus level'. *** When players are seeing the new bonus level for the first time, one of them says something like "I can't believe we never noticed this before!" They just assume this bonus level always existed, and is just so hard to find that they've never unlocked it before. ** In real life, there had/have been some Easter Eggs and hidden secrets that have remained so for over a decade. So it's possible. And it's possible that they might think that for this one machine, the Easter Egg was solved. More over, SR was made at just about the end of the time when game developers weren't really credited with their games or even allowed to talk about them. So if anyone asks, they could very well not know. ** Many real-life arcade games contain DIP switches or secret menus that allow the owner to customize certain settings to their liking. Most of these settings are related to difficulty, in the form of number of lives, coins per play, or points to an extra life, but some games allow changes to graphics modes, sound effects, or even whole characters or levels. Gamers may have assumed that when he had maintenance done on the faulty games, Litwak started adjusting the DIP switches enough to change the experience, unlocking the bonus rounds of Fix-It Felix, Jr., and switching from a "localization" of Sugar Rush's monarch back to the original Japanese version's character model and powerset which had been left in there. * Are there any real arcades that list the price on video games by number of quarters? I've definitely seen it that way on pinball machines, but most arcades I've played just say the price directly. ** They might have changed that practice in recent times, but the x quarters thing is definitely real. Litwak's arcade seems to be a bit dated compared to what you might find in a mall or something, so it's more likely his machines would use such a pricing system. ** I thought that was the only way the price was listed. But SonicTheFighters... then it's been a while since I've been to anything resembling an arcade. * Why are there TemporaryPlatform branches (on the candy trees) in a racing game like ''Sugar Rush''? No one's going to be walking... ** Maybe from [[spoiler: King Candy messing with the code of the game]]. ** Unused minigame? *** Or a fully functional minigame that we just don't ''see'' used. *** Well, in the credits, we ''do'' see Ralph and Vanellope hopping across some types of gummies in an HD pixel gameplay, so... ** Maybe it was from a ''Sugar Rush'' platformer that came out before ''Speedway'' did. ** It's probably a racing hazard on one of the courses, and trees outside have the same properties. That one branch Calhoun and Felix walked on was huge. ** It could also be used on shortcuts where you 'break' through branches to get to said shortcut. In which case, it's not that double stripes disappear when stood on, they just disappear when collided with in order to mimic breaking away. * Rail shooters are the one genre where you can bank on having unlimited ammunition. Why doesn't Calhoun have it? ** There's a Hero's Duty game on the Disney website. IIRC, it doesn't have unlimited ammo. *** The only unlimited ammo in the real Hero's Duty games is for your starting weapon, the one that deals the least damage with the lowest firing rate, naturally. ** Because Calhoun's outside her home game at the time. Stuff doesn't respawn when you're outside your game. ** Possible {{FridgeBrilliance}} brought on by reading this just now: Because she's an NPC. Think of all the events in Time Crisis or House of the Dead or what have you where you need to cover your teammates while they reload. [[spoiler: The First-Person Shooter]] might have had infinite ammo, but it makes sense to me that Calhoun and her team wouldn't. * What would have happened if [[spoiler:Vanellope had crossed the finish line during the Cy-Bug attack? Would they be deleted when the game reset, or would they have continued to destroy the restored world?]] ** [[spoiler: As Ralph put it, there was no finish line to cross.]] *** [[spoiler:The Cy-Bugs probably would have been deleted, but that would have required the same steps - Ralph to wreck the debris, Felix to fix the finish line and then Vanellope to cross it - which there simply wasn't enough time for in the middle of the Cy-Bug attack.]] *** [[spoiler:Probably not, Ralph, Felix, and Calhoun weren't affected.]] *** [[spoiler:In that vein, what probably happened was that the reset only reboots the existing code in the game itself. Ralph, Felix and Calhoun are all foreign code so the reset ignored them. The Cy-Bugs probably would have been ignored as well, unless the game recognized their candy-based structures as being 'weird' and got rid of them as a result. This also further explains why Vanellope's glitch isn't a glitch but a teleportation ability since the game didn't fix it in its reset (unless it is unfixable as a result of Candy/Turbo severing the links.)]] * Wouldn't the cars with ice cream themes melt? ** No more than cars made of food spoil. Or drive. * [[spoiler: What was Vanellope's original kart and 'theme'? Except for when she uses someone else's kart to save Ralph, she's always seen driving that mess they made in the factory. Aside from that pedal-driven thing in the beginning...]] ** [[spoiler: What kart do we know plays the opening bars of "Hail To The Chief" when you honk its horn? Turbo apparently stole Vanellope's kart at the same time he was stealing her crown, castle, and subjects. No ''wonder'' Vanellope keeps her handmade kart rather than switch back to her 'original' one; who'd want to drive that bad memory anywhere? As for her original theme, her last name "Von Schweetz" implies that her theme would be as the sovereign of ''all'' candy, not named after any particular type of candy like Taffyta or Minty Zaki, hence the generic 'cartoon princess' dress and royal cream-colored kart. And if the picture on the side of the game console is any indicator, she was also intended to be a tomboy princess who'd ditch her foofy gown for a cool green NASCAR-style racing suit whenever she actually got off the reviewing stand and in the race.]] *** [[spoiler: Upon further inspection, the front of Vanellope's kart on the game cabinet is white and shaped similarly to King Candy's. So yeah, he probably took it.]] *** Confirmed with this [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mcxbcm3jXp1qdbhwwo8_1280.png piece of concept art]]. *** [[spoiler: Goes into FridgeBrillance since it explains why his castle, car, and everything else is pink (salmon). It was Van's to begin with.]] *** [[spoiler: Also a bit of GeniusBonus to anyone with a solid color sense; the pinks the castle is decorated in are nowhere near salmon.]] *** Wow, EvilIsPetty. * Although in many respects [[spoiler:Candy/Turbo]] is quite TheChessmaster and ManipulativeBastard, he seems rather TooDumbToLive in one way--not following his plan through to its logical conclusion. If by joining with a Cy-Bug he became a virus that could spread to other games, he could certainly conquer and control every one of them in the arcade. Based on [[spoiler:Turbo's backstory]], [[AndThenWhat all this would accomplish is getting ''every'' game shut down]] for being glitchy/hacked, which would either get everyone (including him!) killed when the games were all unplugged, or leave them all homeless if they managed to escape the games before they were unplugged. Either way, his great plan would ultimately end in him losing. [[FridgeHorror Unless he thought he could somehow escape the arcade and get into other arcades/home systems/PC games/the Web...]] ** At this point he is likely quite insane. And if that Cy-Bug had even the slightest effect on his personality, then it's quite probable he couldn't think beyond that motivation. * Okay, what about this: The reason Vanellope glitches is because [[spoiler:her code was tampered with and all but destroyed... But when Vanellope crosses the finish line, she supposedly resets the game back to its factory settings. So how come she can STILL glitch? Did she master some cosmic, matrix-like force... or is it that the game not 100% better, and [[FridgeHorror Turbo is still hiding in the code somewhere]]...?]] ** [[spoiler: Because when she was "glitched", she was already aware of some of her dummied out programming. Teleporting was ''never'' a glitch, it was ''always'' her character ability. Ralph and Co. just continue to call it a glitch because that's what they're used to calling it.]] *** [[spoiler: This makes the most sense to me. Near the end of the movie, it looks like Moppet Girl has to push a button on the console in order to teleport. There might be a timer associated with it too. So I'm thinking that the short teleport was her special ability and she lost control of it when Turbo messed with the code.]] ** Alternatively, reset or not, her code is still damaged. [[spoiler:Turbo rather forcefully tried to disconnect her. If the game had bounced back to factory settings completely, their memories would reset completely, Vanellope included. The default settings were restored, so Vanellope retains her glitching but the system rightfully treats her as the star racer.]] * Felix was in a jail cell in Sugar Rush, with bars clearly made of chocolate. Why didn't he just eat his way out? ** If the chocolate bars are strong enough to resist being broken with his hands, they're probably strong enough to resist breaking with his teeth, and he likely didn't have the time to melt them by licking them. ** The Wreck-It Ralph Wii game (of questionable canonicity) states that Felix is lactose intolerant, so maybe he couldn't eat the chocolate without making himself sick? ** A Missed Moment of Awesome: Sugar Rush is made of sweets. Felix gets an energy boost from pies. Why didn't they include a sequence where Felix was exhausted and ate a gigantic piece of pie ''in'' Sugar Rush so he could do awesome shit!? Probably too obvious. *** Only the Nicelanders' pie will do? *** Shouldn't Felix have thought to bring some power-up pies to help him survive any deadly encounters? Perhaps they would have been too cumbersome to carry, or Felix considered them redundant when his hammer repairs injuries, or there was no time to wait for a pie to bake, but it seems like something worth considering. *** Nope. If the defictionalized game is any indication, pies either give him more points or just makes him repair faster. So unlike Sonic's rings, it wouldn't do him much good. Besides, he's also not the most worldly of characters - it wouldn't occur to him to be that prepared. * If Vanellope was supposed to be a [[spoiler: [[BeautifulAllAlong Princess all along]], why is she in her track outfit on the side of the cabinet?]] ** As mentioned before, the programmers probably intended her to [[spoiler:wear the dress during royal duties in her castle, but she changed into a more tomboyish racing uniform whenever she raced. She probably used both outfits.]] ** Clothing alone does not make one [[spoiler:a princess]] anyway. *** [[spoiler:By God... she's a ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Princess Peach]] [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething who actually does something!]]'']] ** [[spoiler:Her racing outfit is the one that players would actually see her in.]] ** Or maybe [[spoiler: she was ''always'' programmed to give up the monarchy for a constitutional democracy, and that's why her personality didn't change after the reset like the others did]]. *** Intersting but headache-inducing. With no story mode that we know of, why would Sugar Rush's devopers waste time and money on something that is not useful? *** Lots of games with no 'story mode' have a backstory anyway. Probably the premise of Sugar Rush is that the princess is holding some kind of racing tournament for a prize. * One of the villains' complaints is losing all the time to make the hero look good. The way most arcade games are structured, [[NintendoHard villains win so often that losses are almost statistically insignificant]]. ** Maybe it would ''end'' this way. But the first levels of an arcade are usually the easiest ones, so by the time the villain won, they would have lost several times. * Ralph is commonly said to be 30 years old, as that's how long Eggman wearing his game has been around. Continuing the pattern, Vanellope and the other kids in ''Sugar Rush'' are actually 15 years old, despite them being 9 years old physically. Hence, the ''Sugar Rush'' kids are OlderThanTheyLook. While they'd be almost-legal in some areas, Sergeant Calhoun would not, being 1 week old. ** The ages of the physical game cabinets have nothing to do with the ages that their characters are programmed to be. (For example, Vanellope has been 9 [[ViolationOfCommonSense for 15 years]].) If the game worlds have a concept of "legality" in that sense, it would certainly be based on the latter. ** The age the characters are programed as is their physical and, most importantly, mental age. Unlike real people, they won't change from this, ever. * If Q*bert can understand English, as we see when Ralph chats to him, why does Felix bother with his "rusty" Q*bertese? ** Maybe Felix doesn't know Q*bert can understand English. Or perhaps Q*bert ''doesn't'' understand English. Ralph gave Q*bert a Pac-Man cherry the first time; even if Ralph was speaking Latin, free food is free food. And the second time, Ralph ran off to Hero's Duty. Q*bert may not have understood ''what'' Ralph said, but he can connect that Ralph was game-jumping. ** Felix is a very polite person. It's more polite to speak to someone in their native language if you can, so he does because that's the kind of guy he is. * This is probably more of a {{Headscratcher}} but I thought it could go here. Anyway, before [[spoiler:Turbo gets incinerated, he starts glitching between his regular persona and the King Candy persona. The Candy one is drawn to the light, but the Turbo one is trying to pull himself away.

The King Candy head/persona could be the default appearance of the hybrid, and thus be linked to the Cy-Bug programming, while the Turbo head/persona is still independent.

* Sonic's PSA provides even more {{Foreshadowing}} than it lets on. Viewers may dismiss his "Game Over" remark at the end as just Sonic showing off his [[MascotWithAttitude trademark attitude]], but it's actually much more than that. He's actually dropping the first hint at what happens to your ''entire game'' if you die. If you die outside your game and you don't regenerate, your game now does not have you in it. This most likely leads to an "Out of Order", usually followed quickly by its permanent unplugging. Game Over, indeed.

After all, it was such a hit that it stayed put for thirty years, so they would want to keep it as it is. That's this troper's guess, anyway.

** Mario originally appears in Donkey Kong (where he was called Jumpman), Donkey Kong Jr (where he was given the name Mario), Mario Bros (sans Super), and Vs. Super Mario Bros. He was even in Vs. Wrecking Crew. Mario, not from an arcade game? Hmph.

* One thing about when [[spoiler: Princess]] Vanelope stated she was going to have the everyone who was mean to her executed. Why would this be such a big deal? They're inside their own game, they'll respawn at the start of the next race. It's not like we didn't see at least two racers die in the big finale, one by being turned into or suffocated by Apple Pie A la Mode, the other by crashing straight through a giant glass ball full of jawbreakers, the hardest thing in the game world. A friend suggested she might have them taken outside the game to do it, or edit their game code, but is that the first thing they'd think of? Surely the instant reaction is an in-game reaction?

*** This would assume, however, that stats are inherent to the karts rather than the characters. When Vanelope saves Ralph at the end, she uses another racer's kart since it was conveniently nearby, and seems to be as fast as ever; As Sugar Rush's top character she would have top stats, which would transfer to whatever kart she's using (assuming the stats are inherent to the racer). This works for King Candy too since he effectively took Vanelope's place.

* Oh sweet Vanellope. She is pretty much the Deconstruction Personification of the DummiedOut trope. She herself, her car, her level...they weren't finished and she can't do anything about it. She's stuck in the game, ostracized by all the other racers and all she wants to do is be in the game. She can't. What's worse is that most players of Sugar Rush wouldn't even ''know'' she existed unless they could hack into the game and find her data or the creators of the game got interviewed to explain what was left in the final product. And if that's just her, what about all of the other games? How does it feel like to be the DummiedOut characters in those games, unable to interact in the game or just even being ''in'' the game?

Now, for those such as Felix for whom death is basically just falling over, it probably isn't too bad, but in games like Hero's Duty, there are probably more realistic death scenes...and they would have to go through that over and over.

** Um, you're confusing reality with a video game world. Things that would result in serious injury or even death in real life can, depending on the type of game, be brushed off by the characters as almost nothing. Just play a Mario Kart game and you'll see just how far it and Sugar Rush are from reality. While the characters from Sugar Rush are in their own game I doubt they even could die from either attack items or obstacles since they're not programmed to. Even if they can die (and respawn) I doubt death is a very pleasant experience, hence why they'd be freaking out.

* Some viewers have wondered why King Candy didn't just tell Vanellope the lie he told Ralph, that he was keeping her from racing to protect her? He probably did, but, as he said, she would not listen. Why? Because racing, as she tells Ralph, is in her code, that is, in her ''soul''. She understands the risks, but is ''willing'' to die just to have the chance to race. That's why Ralph's own willingness to lay down his life at the end is so significant: he too has finally found something he is willing to die for, something more important than his own life. And what was it that he was searching for from the beginning of the film? Meaning to his life. If you think about it logically, a thing's purpose or end must always be more important than the thing itself. If a thing has nothing which is more important than the thing itself, than that thing can logically have no purpose outside of itself. Ergo, someone who has nothing for which he is willing to die has no purpose to his life, beyond his own continued existence. Ralph's problem at the beginning of the film is that his continued existence has become unbearable to him. He leaves his game looking for the thing that will give his life meaning, that is, the thing for which he is willing to die. Once he finds that, he can return to his old existence and be happy, because now his life has meaning: Vanellope.

** All true, and it goes even deeper than that. The ghosts in Pac-Man were the first videogame characters to have any kind of AI ''at all''; before then non-player-controlled objects only moved on mechanistic, predetermined courses. Bad-Anon is holding its meeting on the very spot where the first 'intelligent' video game characters ever were born!

** Ralph also broke the machines in the kart factory, essentially breaking the minigame. Vanellope wanted a lot of frosting, and he ended up dumping several entire containers onto the kart. Maybe frosting is a sort of nitro for the karts, and by breaking the minigame, Ralph essentially created a "glitched" kart with impossibly high stats. The randomly slathered-on colours even resemble the kinds of corrupted textures you might see on a glitched character/vehicle.

** Maybe Felix doesn't know Q*bert can understand English. Or perhaps Q*bert ''doesn't'' understand English. Ralph gave Q*bert a Pac-Man cherry the first time; even if Ralph was speaking Latin, free food is free food. And the second time, Ralph ran off to Hero's Duty. Q*bert may not have understood ''what'' Ralph said, but he can connect that Ralph is game-jumping.

* If you think about it, the brilliance of Ralph's idea to help out Q*Bert and friends at the end isn't in the broad concept of retro characters finding a new game his game; it's in the realization that ''his'' game is far and away ''the'' ideal game for them to move to. They go in as additional wreckers, bad guys in a game where ''the good guy can't do anything but fix things''. There isn't any way for them to get killed, so they don't have to worry about being KilledOffForReal!

* There is an interesting thing about the Nesquiksand scene... What Felix initially suggests to do, namely to just jump out, is actually the typical method to get out of quicksand in {{Platform Game}}s, especially Mario games. Felix's panic could be seen as panicking because Sugar Rush ''doesn't'' follow that convention, being a RacingGame instead of a PlatformGame. In {{Racing Game}}s, a racer just gets instantly put back on the track if something like that were to happen.

*The dummied-out level in Sugar Rush. Who says it was dummied out to begin with? It seems to be the only level to contain a lethal hazard (the Diet Cola/Mentos thing) and we all know what would happen if a certain character "died" in Sugar Rush. Furthermore, we see him messing with the code onscreen.
