* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Some fans think that the rest of the ''Sugar Rush'' racers should've gotten more screen-time. They only appear in four parts of the film and when they do, it's rather brief. Not to mention, they spent most of the film tormenting Vanellope and don't reform until the end [[spoiler:once they got their memories back]] so we don't know how they really act.

** The name "Vanellope" is a mixture of the word "Vanilla" and the name "Penelope". Alterations of both were used in two consecutive ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games, with Penelo of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', and Oerba Dia Vanille of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII''.

* DesignatedVillain: Wreck-It Ralph, even if you ignore how he is [[BeingEvilSucks in reality]]. Ralph's home was the forest in the game he originates, which was torn down in favor of Niceland Apartments. At least one Website/YouTube comment said:

* StrangledByTheRedString: The film presents Felix and Calhoun's relationship as thus: they meet (and Felix comments on Calhoun's high definition), they have a {{Slapstick}} routine that ends with them gazing into each others' eyes (and are [[ShipperOnDeck shipped by the Laffy Taffy]]), Felix calls Calhoun a dynamite gal (which doesn't end well), they share a BigDamnKiss, and they get married in the epilogue (presumably after a year or so has passed offscreen). That's it. Apparently, WordOfGod admits they paired the two together because they found it cute/funny ([[http://imgonnasketchit.tumblr.com/post/37459144132 and because it was hard to work out Felix's odd proportions without a realistic reference]]), so it could be intentional, in addition to the fact that Ralph and Vanellope's stories were the central focus of the movie. The removal of several ''Hero's Duty'' scenes from an earlier scrapped plot probably didn't help Felix and Calhoun's screentime, either.

* TastesLikeDiabetes: ''Sugar Rush''. Lampshaded by Ralph who is visibly annoyed when he first notices that he's in ''Sugar Rush''. Also lampshaded by Sergeant Calhoun, who constantly complains about the sugar particles in the air jamming her sensor and calls the game a "saccharine-saturated nightmare."

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The video game ''Fix-It Felix Jr.'' is actually astonishingly complex for an ExcusePlot. The basic story is, of course, Ralph losing his home and solitude in one fell swoop to the Niceland Apartment building and deciding to get even by destroying the penthouse. Unfortunately, people are already living in it (innocent people, mind you -- any objection to Ralph's loss should be directed to the building's owners, planners, and builders, who are inaccessible from within the game), and Felix has an obligation to defend them. The premise of the game itself is plenty ripe for conflict, or at least for character motivation and backstory, but is rather dishearteningly ignored, as if the writers themselves didn't realize its potential.
