* The movie puts unsettling emphasis on characters whose psychosis are completely wracked from being stuck as a (usually) unchangeable program in a video game. It's creepy how vindictive or bitter some get towards other characters [[JustFollowingOrders simply for being other bits of the program at their expense]] (Gene for example, obsessively getting Ralph ostracised by everyone in Fix-It-Felix, out of petty spite for simply being the part programmed to throw him off the level building every game) while other characters such as Turbo just seem to completely and utterly lose their mind and even find ways to reprogram and destroy the game, in a way of rebelling against the creators.]]

** 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. 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.]]

to:

* The flashback of Turbo invading the usurping racing game. Note that unlike [[spoiler: his Sugar Rush invasion where he pragmatically disguises himself to function in the game, here he just spazzes the game, distracting the players and even attacking and glitching the racers. He wasn't just trying to take over the game, [[IfICantHaveYou he was trying to sabotage it and put it out of action out of spite for stealing his thunder.]] It's even creepier after getting a video game perspective of Turbo doing the exact same thing to Vanellope as he did the racer.]]

*** Creeper's trip to ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXandY Pokemon Y]]'', as seen [[http://imgur.com/a/fq63d#0 here.]] [[http://creeper-pasta.tumblr.com/tagged/%2AA-GALA-NIGHT-%28JOURNAL%29 Now with free]] ApocalypticLog!ApocalypticLog!
*** 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 ''[[TearsOfFear terrified]]'' 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]].

*** To give an idea of just how terrifying that line is, [[http://www.cracked.com/article_21674_5-movies-kids-that-stole-their-plot-from-adult-movies_p2.html a Cracked.com article]] argues that the plot of ''Wreck-It Ralph'' shares many similarities to the movie ''Film/TaxiDriver''... and uses that line as proof that the animated kid's movie is actually the ''darker'' of the two.
--> We're trying to imagine Scorsese going over that scene with the Taxi Driver cast, and Harvey Keitel saying, "Jesus, Marty, can we change that? This shit will give people nightmares."

** The very idea that [[spoiler: King Candy/Turbo is insane and resolute enough to pull one up on the cy-bug assimilating him and assimilate IT instead. As he said, his new form is unstoppable and he can take over any and all games as he wants.]]

*** He didn't make the player's forget her. It's stated near the beginning that the lineup of racers changes daily. Someone would only notice Vanellope missing if they played every day and began wondering why she never appeared as a racer anymore.

** Ralph himself points out how lucky he is to have 30 years under his belt without having been plugged out. Who's to say other Fix-it Felix games haven't been, as Litwak put it, "put out to pasture"?

** This is further supported by the changes [[spoiler: Turbo]] made to Sugar Rush: it wasn't just the citizens' memories he locked away, it was the player's too! [[spoiler: Turbo]] can make people in the real world forget Vanellope and accept him as the rightful ruler - what else is he capable of?

** [[spoiler: Just Turbo by himself is [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/wreckitralph/images/9/99/Turbo_02.png/revision/latest?cb=20130606195721 one seriously creepy-looking character]]. The gray pale skin, large sunken yellow eyes and teeth; he's almost a zombie.]]
