* A Meta TearJerker: Disney got Buckner and Garcia[[hottip:*:The guys who did ''Music/PacManFever'', helping with the {{Retraux}} feel of the Fix-It Felix Jr. game]] to record a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl2uM_KX_9g theme song]] for the movie. Gary Garcia [[AuthorExistenceFailure didn't live to see the song finalized or the movie released]]. Jerry Buckner kept the song in their name as a duo anyway, in tribute to his fallen friend.

*** YMMV on the round of applause part, as she was also willing to risk the wellbeing of all the characters in Sugar Rush in order to race, but this tidbit makes her all the more tragic. But considering the way she's been treated by them for years, it's not surprising that she would not be too concerned what would happen to them.



* YMMV on this one, but the scene near the end where Vanellope, [[spoiler:who has regained her status as the game's princess, makes all the other racers who tormented her earlier break down in tears after decreeing that they be executed]] seems to come off as a bit cruel and mean-spirited. Sure, [[spoiler:she revealed that she was just joking about it moments later, and, to be fair, the other racers KINDA deserved it]], but you can't help but [[spoiler:feel sorry for them as they bawl their eyes out.]] Hell, after all the other stuff already mentioned on this page, you might even cry along with them.

**Even worse when you realize they're making fun of her the same way a bully makes fun of someone with a physical or mental disability.

* Imagine for a moment that Vanellope hadn't saved Ralph and he had died in the cola volcano. All the Bad-Anon members would ever know of what happened would be that despite their attempts to help him, Ralph went Turbo and ended up getting himself killed. They would probably feel somewhat guilty that they weren't able to help him with his problems when he came to them for help coping with his life. They would never know that the bad guy creed they taught him gave him the courage to save an entire game world and comforted him as he fell to his doom. They would never know how much their support helped him in the most important moment of his life.

** With Ralph gone, Fix-it Felix Jr. would be unplugged. The Nicelanders and Felix would be all homeless, begging next to Q*Bert and Co., instead of Ralph and Felix taking Q*Bert in.

*** Right after [[spoiler: Vanellope gives Ralph the medal]], he tries to let her down gently, playing it off like it's no big deal. She assumes he's joking and lightly tells him to knock it off. When he grows more and more frustrated, finally breaking the news to her in more blunt language, there is a brief moment where she glitches and stands up perfectly straight, quite clearly in complete shock. Her next words are little more than a confused mumble - the first time we see her rendered completely speechless - as she realises Ralph is actually serious. Ralph's words cut right through her snark and you realise that [[WhamLine they've hit her with all the force of a brick to the face.]]

* The entire scene where Taffyta and the other racers bully Vanellope and destroy her car is devastating on its own, but what finally pushes Ralph over the edge and prompts him to run over, screaming, "LEAVE HER ALONE!"? Seeing Vanellope get shoved in the mud. Considering he gets tossed in the mud every single day in his own game, it makes sense that seeing it happen to someone else, even a bratty kid he doesn't like (at least at that point), would ''really'' upset him.

** [[spoiler:The room was filled with colorful imagery and the words "You have been a bad girl." on the walls. 10/1 if King Candy/Turbo had managed to find her sooner that would have probably been her new home until the game was inevitably unplugged.]]

** During it, we get a glimpse of how the inner world of ''Fix-It Felix Jr.'' looks. All the Nicelanders go inside the front apartment entrance to relax after another hard day of work and are greeted by Felix at the door. Ralph picks himself up, covered in mud, and walks past them... right in time for the last tenant to rush in frightened, and for Gene to give him an angry glance before shutting the door behind him. ''[[FridgeLogic This has been happening in that game every single day for 30 years at least!]]''
