* DuelingMovies: In a manner with Creator/DreamWorksAnimation's ''WesternAnimation/{{Turbo}}'' thanks to that film taking cues from Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog, who appears in ''Wreck It-Ralph'', and because that film and the title character share a name with a character in this film [[spoiler:that turned out to be the BigBad, a major spoiler that really wasn't known until ''Wreck It-Ralph'' was screened for critics, well into ''Turbo's'' production and making it a possible coincidence for DWA]]. ''Wreck-It Ralph'' won since it did well while ''Turbo'' bombed and got DWA and former Disney boss Jeffrey Katzenberg sued by his stockholders.

*** Mario was originally planned to have a cameo in the movie, but according to the director Rich Moore and screenwriter Phil Johnston, [[http://www.gamesradar.com/wreck-it-ralph-9-amazing-things-you-couldnt-possibly-know-about-movie/ they didn't know what to do with him]]. They thought Mario was too important for a sight gag, but couldn't come up with something that had more substance (it ''wasn't'' about the fact that using him in the movie would be expensive due to licensing fees: see GodNeverSaidThat).[[note]]However, it's been said stated that Mario will appear in the sequel, and have a more prominent role (assuming Creator/SonyPictures decides to walk out of making a ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' movie). As well, Dr. Wily ''had'' been rumored to appear, as well as Mega Man, but that now seems unlikely since the film rights to those characters [[http://www.tracking-board.com/tb-exclusive-a-mega-man-movie-is-a-go-at-fox/ have been secured]] by Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox. Rumors also suggest that cameos of the ''Sonic'' characters could be cut from the sequel in order to [[ScrewedByTheLawyers avoid issues]] with ''Sonic'' film rightsholder Creator/SonyPictures.[[/note]] Mario ''does'' get mentioned in the movie.
