* When Ralph gets the Hero's Medal in ''Hero's Duty'', he is surrounded by holograms of soldiers that all congratulate him for his "heroics." Even though he just climbed up there to get the medal rather than actually doing anything heroic, he's still overjoyed to actually be praised for once in his life.

** Adding a sweet layer to this, when Ralph races off to wreck the mountain, he tells Vanellope to "stay with Felix." He trusts his old frenemy enough that, before dying, he leaves him the care of his first real friend.

** Felix's reaction to Ralph ''finally'' pouring out his frustration about how things have been going for the last thirty years. Hearing [[NiceJobBreakingItHero how badly he helped wreck things]] could not have been easy, but he readily accepts it. Then, when Ralph finally finishes and begs him again to fix Vanellope's kart, Felix raises his hammer with a little smile as if to say, "Well, why didn't you just say so in the first place?"

** [[http://draqua.tumblr.com/post/45695529076/just-a-little-side-note-building-off-my-previous Someone pointed out]] that it's exceptionally heartwarming that the spoilered event went through without either Felix or Calhoun having to change physically. They're such an OddCouple -- the short, cartoony handyman and the tall, "realistic" soldier -- that you'd expect there to be some transformation [[spoiler: before the two of them could be together.]] Nope. Felix and Calhoun fell in love with each other in their current forms, and that's how [[spoiler: they got married.]]

* It's REALLY hard to hear, but when [[spoiler: Ralph saves the day and Felix kisses Calhoun and she picks him up, looking like she's ready to kill him]], Felix stutters, "[[{{Adorkable}} Uhmm, excuse me]] --" -- and then she [[TheyDo kisses him back]]

Felix stutters, "[[{{Adorkable}} Uhmm, excuse me]] --" -- and then she [[TheyDo kisses [[ShutUpKiss shuts him back]]up with a kiss on the]] ''[[ShutUpKiss mouth]]''. The two of them melt into the kiss, leaving no doubt, that, yes, TheyDo.

* The role of Q*Bert in the movie (a gameless character) was originally supposed to be filled by the main character from VideoGame/DigDug and his adversaries. Namco, however, denied them the use of the character--because the main character of Dig Dug canonically has a huge video game family (with the hero of ''VideoGame/MrDriller'' being his son, for example) and they said that none of his family would let him be out in the cold, and all would take care of him in their own games. ''D'awww!''
** Speaking of Q*Bert, he's got a new game coming, thanks mostly to his popularity in this movie!
* The scene where Ralph sneaks into Hero's Duty shows us that when you play a first-person shooter, the characters really ''are'' talking to you!

* It's REALLY hard to hear, but when [[spoiler: Ralph saves the day and Felix kisses Calhoun and she picks him up, looking like she's ready to kill him]], you can hear Felix say "I, uh, missed you".
** Actually, he says "Uhmm, excuse me-" before she kisses him since he thought she got mad at him, but it doesn't make the moment any less sweet and aww-tastic.

** It's also mentioned that the other bad guys have been trying to get Ralph to go to Bad-Anon for ''years'' now. As in, it's very possible they realized Ralph was depressed a long time before this, and genuinely wanted to help him. They ''do'' care!

** Not to mention the entirety of the end credits is enough to make a good part of gamers cry happy tears, since it includes a lot of homages to famous games such as ''Street Fighter'', ''Doom'' and ''Sonic the Hedgehog''. This troper was definitely touched and shed a tear or two. Some people even called the film "a love letter to gamers everywhere", and the end credits is probably the biggest love declaration in it...

* [[http://upperstories.tumblr.com/post/71623274981/my-wir-secret-santa-for-mr-nonsensology-one-of-my Here]] is a Christmas-themed WIR fanart done as a Secret Santa gift on Tumblr. According to the author, the prompt was Ralph bonding with the Sugar Rush racers.
-->What’s a better way to bond than sneaking presents in the night before X-mas and stealing cookies while the kiddies fail to snap a picture of Santa?
* One Tumblr user gave a [[http://theflyingredpig.tumblr.com/post/56844252228/im-gunna-wreck-it-the-cutest-friendship commentary of Ralph and Vanellope's relationship.]]
-->These two provide joy for and help EACH OTHER, rather than make Ralph Vanellope’s sworn protector because she’s [[TheChewToy so helpless]] (she’s not, she’s actually cleverer than him, and makes sure he properly makes up for his mistake before forgiving him, among other things) or make Vanellope his [[ManicPixieDreamGirl platonic pixie]] [[NoYay dream girl]] or any of that one-sided BS.
