** Unlike the other three protagonists, she has ''no one''. Felix is a well-respected "good guy" among his game, Calhoun has her soldiers to keep company, and Ralph has other "bad guys". Vanellope can't go out of her game to befriend others. Meaning she is forced to be in the same world as her tormentors.

* It all starts with a main character who's was literally designed to be "the bad guy" of his story, something he eventually realizes isn't much fun.

Creator/RogerEbert once stated that VideoGames were not art to him.[[note]][[http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/2010/07/okay_kids_play_on_my_lawn.html He did eventually back away from this opinion.]][[/note]] Never mind the gamers' community's InternetBackdraft, ''this'' is what will make anyone with that idea change his or her mind. Because, just as ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' did with toys, ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' will do with VideoGames: showing the heart that lies within such things.

And given this is [[TearJerker/{{Disney}} Disney]] we're talking about, the task will be accomplished in the most [[TearJerker gut-wrenching]] of ways.

* Sergeant Calhoun has the most tragic backstory ever. Dear God, her backstory. Her fiance was eaten by a Cy-Bug ''at the altar on their wedding day'' because she forgot to do a perimeter check.

** The moment that leads to this decision is equally worthy of tears. The [[spoiler:Cy-Bug revived Turbo grabs Ralph and flies with him up in the air, grabs his head and yanks it in the direction of where Vanellope is along with Felix and Calhoun, and proceeds to tell him ''[[ForcedToWatch to watch]]'' while Vanellope gets ''eaten'' by the Cy-Bugs.]]

* During the finale while Calhoun and Felix are trying to [[spoiler: evacuate the residents of Sugar Rush due to the Cy Bug invasion]], Ralph desperately trying to take Vanellope with him but her [[spoiler: glitching doesn't allow her to follow]]. Vanellope then proceeds to tell Ralph "It's okay. Just go. Go without me." Cue the waterworks.

to:

* "I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me."
** What really clinches it is [[spoiler:Ralph looking at the medal Vanellope made for him while he falls. Take note that his fist was faltering as he fell even as he recited his Bad-Anon Mantra. His whole body language was expressing the terrible fear he was attempting to suppress with the mantra. It was him looking at the medal that gave him the strength to recite the rest of the mantra resolutely and hold himself with determination.]] Cue the tears.

For just a second as he falls, Ralph opens his eyes to [[spoiler:look at the medal one last time- it is the last thing he expects to see before his FinalDeath.]] And then he closes his eyes again and he ''smiles.'' He just smiles. Cue more tears.

* The quick gag that Felix says that Ralph sometimes falls asleep in the bar "Tappers". Through a darker lens it could be that [[DrowningMySorrows he drinks a lot some days.]]

** We find out through this that the "glitching" is at least partially related to Vanellope's emotional state. After [[spoiler:Ralph destroys her car, she so devastated that she glitches off the tree Ralph hung her on into a heap on the ground]].

* [[spoiler: Ralph's near-HeroicSacrifice by divebombing head first into mentos, planning to be boiled alive in Diet Cola Hot Springs, all while stating the Bad Annon Affirmation and looking at Vanellope's message of "You're my Hero" as he whispers the last line.]]

* [[spoiler: After hearing King Candy's explanation (which later proves to be a deception) about the danger Vanellope could possibly bring to herself and the rest of their world by being a glitch, Ralph, wanting whats best for her, forces himself to demolish the car he helped her build which brought them together.]]

* Once he gets to ''Sugar Rush'', [[spoiler:Vanellope steals his medal, and it's inadvertently destroyed]], Ralph totally loses it and proceeds to wreck anything he can smash in a fit of rage! It's a bit narmy and maybe hilarious to some until you really consider his situation. After a life of neglect from being a bad guy ''and'' finally doing the impossible and proving a bad guy can get a medal, he LOSES it before he can show anybody he knows! This was probably his ''only'' chance to get a medal the hard way, and now he's just back to face a life of utter torment! The look on his face screams, "Because I wreck stuff!! That's all I exist for right, World, you piece of crap!!!??" It's more than a few peoples' dream to be worth something, and even more people have given up on it already.
