** Also, quite a lot of people find the scene where the Sugar Rush racers bully Vanellope very, very hard to watch.

** Calhoun's deliberately melodramatic backstory. Having your fiance eaten at the altar by a robot bug? Silly. Shooting said robot bug in a wedding dress with a machine gun you pulled from your {{hammerspace}}? Even sillier. Being traumatized by this despite knowing full well that this was a fictional backstory designed for you? Now it's hilarious, though it becomes a double whammy when it melds into MoodWhiplash: the over-the-top-ness of the backstory ''itself'' may be played for laughs, but the comedic tone is dropped as soon as we see the trauma it causes for Calhoun, at which point the scene turns seriously sad.

** The promotional artwork for ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'' is Mario in a construction outfit. Seeing how Fix-it Felix was an {{Expy}} of Mario, it goes full circle.

** Turbo gets painted as this a lot by his more extreme fans, inserting sympathy into an infamous attention whore despite the movie doing none of that. (see AlternativeCharacterInterpretation above for more details.)

** ''Vanellope.'' Between her design, enthusiasm for racing, interactions with Ralph and [[spoiler: the "you're my hero" candy medal she made for him]], she is just ''ozzing'' adorable-little-sister. Even the bratty-ness can come off as endearing (adorable-yet-annoying-little-sister).

* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Turbo became jealous because of the existence of another racing game taking his spot, so he wrecked it and got both games unplugged. He goes one step further when he invades ''Sugar Rush'' and tries to delete Vanellope from the game, but when he couldn't, he turned her into a glitch and locked away everyone's memories of who she really was. Then there's the ending scene when he tries to kill Ralph. Also, he tries to outright kill Vanellope in the final race and as a Cy-bug plans on taking over any game he wants. His original goal was to be a popular character, but now he intentionally wants to ruin games because he has the power to.]]

*** To be fair, it was only Calhoun's backstory itself - a parody of overly-dark FPS character backstories - that was played for laughs; once we see the traumatic effect it has on her, the humorous part of the scene stops. Although this makes for one hell of a MoodWhiplash.

* 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 meant less screen time for them which makes the problem worse. .

** Sure, Gene's an ass toward Ralph, but considering Ralph throws him like a football at the start of every game, is it any wonder he'd develop a grudge? There's also a hint of regret about his earlier attitude in his last major scene with Ralph, but he still chooses to [[NeverMyFault take it out on Ralph instead.]]
** The Surge Protector. Yeah, he's also an ass, but he apparently has people regularly tell him that they hate him.

* TakeThatScrappy: If you look closely during the ending you can see that [[{{Jerkass}} Gene]] gets blown out of the Nicelander's building by one of Q*bert's friends.

** A certain [[VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiterature literature club]] has a character who is [[spoiler:similar to Turbo in terms of motives and how they do their actions. Especially in terms of manipulating codes and attempting to delete characters to get the attention they want from [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou you, the player]] ]].

* StrawmanHasAPoint: The bullies in tell Vanellope, who is a glitch, that she can't race with them because she is a "disaster waiting to happen". They are portrayed as bullies prejudiced against glitches, but Vanellope does nearly damage Diet Cola Mountain later in the film and it's a legitimate concern for all characters that if their game is viewed as broken that the whole thing gets its plug pulled. Though during the climax [[spoiler:Vanellope masters her glitch and manages to go through the race without damaging the track and when it's clear her glitches aren't dangerous they become very popular as part of regular play.]]
