** Then again, in the likelihood that MAME emulation exists within the movie's universe, all might not be lost.

*** Really, that whole trip could warrant its own page. It begins with Viola arriving at a Pokemon Center in the midst of the insanity, with everyone seeking shelter and panicking in the confusion. Someone notices that Calem is behaving strangely. Then, his [[FacialHorror mouth and eyes start bleeding]] and a freaking ''swarm'' of tentacles burst out of his head. An invariable swarm of Lovecraftian Pokemon proceed to wreck up the place, including an Espurr that makes Serena, Tierno, Shauna and Trevor's heads explode with its psychic powers, nearly doing the same to Viola until her Vivillon knocks her away...and it's implied that this resulted in the Vivillon being corrupted as well, seeing as she proceeds to kill Viola with [[TheSwarm Infestation]]. Things start looking up toward the end of it all, when [[TheHighQueen Diantha]] leads a rebellion of survivors against Creeper. [[HopeSpot This lasts about five seconds]] before Creeper decides to bring a warped and horrifying looking version of [[spoiler:ARCEUS]] into the mix. That's right, Creeper managed to [[spoiler:corrupt ''GOD'']]. The truly ''{{te|arsOfFear}}rrified'' look of defeat on Diantha's face as [[spoiler:Arceus]] emerges is both this and a TearJerker, and the only saving grace at this point is that [[spoiler:Arceus]] proceeds to [[HolyHandGrenade put them all out of their misery immediately afterward]].

* [[spoiler: The part where King candy tries to [[MoralEventHorizon beat Vanellope to death with a car part]]. It just shows how [[AdultFear vulnerable]] she is to danger.]]

** It also demonstrates how damn aware King Candy is of [[spoiler: the morbid situations he creates for other video game characters for the sake of his own self obsession, especially with how dark and thorough the whole ImagineSpot is and how King Candy indirectly details the repercussions of all his past actions with fake concern he knew to be expected from a good guy, he even knows the term "going Turbo". Add to that how gleefully sadistic and murderous a bastard Turbo proves to be towards characters that try to steal his spotlight, it suggests he wasn't just apathetic to dooming other game characters to deletion in his actions, he outright took cruel enjoyment thinking about it]].

* In this movie's reality, glitches cannot leave their game nor can they be killed within their own game making them practically immortal. Want some pure FridgeHorror? Think about real video game glitches, some can be terrifying as hell;. Now imagine being trapped with those glitches for the rest of your life.

*** [[spoiler:...And right after that line, he flips her car over and [[WouldHurtAChild tries to ram the poor little girl headfirst into a stalagmite dividing a fork in the road]]. If you hated smashing into those things then, you really gotta hate them now.]]

* A bit of FridgeHorror: If a game gets -unplugged, the characters in it can at least evacuate to the surge protector or another game, although they'll essentially be homeless. [[ApocalypseHow So what happens to all the characters in all the games when the arcade itself goes out of business?]] Now think about how popular arcades were in the eighties and nineties, and how many of them have closed down since then...

** In real arcades, machines are moved about and cords are tripped on all the time. Also most arcades turn things off during the night. Also, what if a blackout occurs. Most games wouldn't get any kind of warning.

** A positive note: Don't forget patches. Which heal major game problems without needing to uninstall, as well as add new content. Just imagine if Sugar Rush was for the PC, and Vanellope wakes up one morning to find out she's not only not glitched anymore but has new racetracks and new racers. On the other hand, it would be pretty disorienting to suddenly find oneself in a new clothes and everyone acting different. Kinda of like Franchise/TheTwilightZone...

** What's also scary about the Cybugs in Sugar Rush is that, yes, they do look like ridiculous candy coated CuteMachines but they are just as violent as the ones in Hero's Duty.

* It can be a little disturbing FridgeHorror: it's never stated what happened to Fix-it Felix Sr. It's possible he never was part of the game, which means Felix actually has/had a father, but no memories of him? In a way, this is worse than Calhoun's story

* Calhoun's traumatic flashbacks of her previous fiancee, {{trigger}}ed by Felix calling her "one dynamite gal", can resonate too close for comfort for those who have some sort of emotional trigger.
