* VillainousBreakdown: This happens when Vanellope manages to catch up to him during the race at the climax, revealing, to his utter shock, that she managed to not only somehow break out of the dungeon, but was about to best him in the race using a kart that was just a short time beforehand just a pile of scraps. Then he completely loses it as he attacks Vanellope with a car part, which leads to TheReveal and the last vestiges of his sanity going down the drain.

He was originally Turbo, the famous main character in an 8-bit racing game called ''Turbo Time''. When attention turned away from him and to a new game called ''[=RoadBlasters=]'', he invaded it to force people to pay attention to him. This resulted in both games being labeled non-functional and unplugged. The story became a cautionary tale, and his name became a byword for abandoning one's game. Most of the arcade's inhabitants think he died when ''Turbo Time'' and ''[=RoadBlasters=]'' were unplugged, but in reality, he game-jumped once again to ''Sugar Rush'' and altered its code to become its ruler, while making the real ruler, Princess Vanellope Von Schweetz, a glitch.

* AdultsAreUseless: Although in his place it's more like Adults Caused the Problem to Begin With. He never steps in when Vanellope is bullied because he is the one who originally made her a glitch and influenced the other racers to bully her by altering their memories.

* AristocratsAreEvil: Given his treatment of Vanellope it looks like this trope but it's actually an aversion. He was evil (or at least a jerkass) ''before'' he became an aristocrat.
* AssimilationBackfire: When he's eaten by a Cy-Bug, he instead takes control of it.
* AttentionWhore: The core of his character and motivation is attention-seeking. When another arcade game, ''[=RoadBlasters=]'', started drawing attention away from him, he literally abandoned ''Turbo Time'' and invaded their game. His antics caused both games to crash and be shipped off from the arcade, but he managed to escape and get into ''Sugar Rush'', where he cut Vanellope's code from the game and even brainwashed the residents into forgetting about her so he could be the star racer and ruler.

* BadassDriver: He races in ''Sugar Rush'''s tournaments as well and does pretty good at it. Consider that he is foreign to the game and thus subject to perma-death - in all his years of daily dangerous racing, he did not die even once.
* BaldOfEvil: As King Candy, he is bald but this does not ''immediately'' bing as evil due to his comical nature. As Turbo, a helmet keeps us from seeing if he has hair. In either case, he is a jerkass.

* BigBad: His battle to keep the number one place led to two games getting unplugged, and caused the whole panic about "going Turbo". Then he took over ''Sugar Rush'' and caused all of Vanellope's problems, which then spill over into Ralph's storyline.
* BigCreepyCrawlies: Invokes both this trope and MonsterClown with his Cy-Bug form. It's very phobia-inducing.

* CatchPhrase: "[[BreadAndCircuses Have some candy!]]" and "Turbo-tastic!", [[spoiler:"Turbo-tastic!", his original catchphrase as Turbo.]]



* ChekhovsSkill: The first clue to his identity is his skill as a racer. Turbo was the most challenging opponent of his respective game before jumping to ''Sugar Rush''.
* ClassicVillain: Turbo is driven by a combination of Envy and Vanity. In his original game, he loved being in the spotlight, but when that spotlight started to shift to a new game, he became envious of its success and jumped over to the new game to once again be the center of attention. He repeated the process with Sugar Rush, this time stealing the place of its ''real'' ruler[=/=]top racer Vanellope Von Schweetz in order to get the attention she would have had.
* ClippedWingAngel: As a Cy-Bug, he's powerful enough to slap Ralph around like a ragdoll, but he also has their programmed-in weakness of not being able to resist being drawn towards bright light.
* CoolCrown: He wears a golden one in his role as king, although it actually belongs to Vanellope.
* TheCracker: He knows how to access a game's source code and uses it to install himself as King of Sugar Rush while Vanellope, the rightful princess, is shunted off and passed off as a DummiedOut character.
* CreepyHighPitchedVoice: He has a goofy high-pitched voice, complete with a [[SpeechImpediment lisp]], which helps his image as a comical {{Expy}} of [[Disney/AliceInWonderland Ed Wynn's performance as the Mad Hatter]]. He keeps this voice even as we start to learn that he's not as friendly as seems. His true form as the psychopathic GreenEyedMonster Turbo still has that same voice, which serves as an early hint that Candy is Turbo when we first hear Turbo's voice in a flashback sequence. And his voice gets even more terrifying in the climax, when he starts glitching between his forms as King Candy and Turbo, heavily distorting his voice.
* CrunchTastic: His original catchphrase, "Turbo-tastic!"
* DisasterDominoes: The moment Ralph entered ''Sugar Rush'' was the moment his plans started to fall apart. It went something like this: Ralph enters with a medal. The medal looks enough like the coins used as entry fees in order to fool the system, which Vanellope takes advantage of to actually enter the Random Roster Race by stealing it and using it as her fee. Vanellope completing the race would trigger the game to reboot and expel all the code changes King Candy had made. Fortunately, she doesn't actually have a cart nor know how to race, but then Ralph helps her make one and learn how to drive in order to get the medal back (if she wins the race, she'll get the medal as part of her prize money). He manages to get Ralph to go away by giving him the medal and convincing him it would be better if Vanellope didn't race, but when Ralph returns to his own game, he's in a position to notice that Vanellope is prominently advertised on the side of her game box, which makes him suspicious of King Candy's story, and he returns, helping Vanellope to enter the race (she's still part of the roster). King Candy tries to run her off the track so she can't complete the race, but her glitching interferes with his King Candy skin, revealing him to be Turbo. And then the Cy-Bug Ralph accidentally brought with him starts the apocalypse, which results in him being devoured by a Cy-bug and then killed by being forced to fly into a volcano. ''Whew!''
* DyingAsYourself: A rare villainous example. As the Cy-Bug King Candy is destroyed, it alternates between the hypnotized Candy and the protesting Turbo, the two shifting back and forth as the body is melted by the volcano.

** Towards Ralph: both he and Ralph wanted something more than what they had, and were willing to force their way into other games to get what they felt was their due. The difference is, Ralph legitimately cares about others even if he is a little selfish, and makes up for his many mistakes, while Turbo cares about no one and nothing other than himself and getting the attention he wants. He represents what Ralph could have been if he had been consumed by his resentment and jealousy.

* HateSink: As amusing as King Candy is at certain points, the film still makes it clear that he's a vile, despicable, remorseless, heartless and unsympathetic sociopath who not only stole Vanellope's life from her and purposely instigated the other racers to bully her mercilessly for his own selfish reasons for 15 years straight, but '''''gleefully''''' wanted her to get killed just so he could continue his fame. He is also cruel to Ralph, particularly by [[KickTheDog forcing him to break Vanellope's heart for shits and giggles]].
