Fix-It Felix, Jr. is the arcade game in the film Wreck-It Ralph. The Machine hold's Niceland where Wreck-It Ralph, Fix-It Felix, Jr. and the other Nicelanders live in. The game is one of the oldest games of Litwak's Arcade having been there for thirty years. Due to Ralph's desire to become a hero, the machine is temporarily marked as "Out-Of-Order" and would be unplugged if they couldn't get him back. By the end of the movie, not only does Ralph return, he invite the characters from Q*bert and other homeless video game characters, whose games had been unplugged respectively, to join them as part of the game's bonus level, as well as making Niceland their new home.

Plot

Ralph's forest home is destroyed by construction of a new apartment building. Ralph shouts out, "I'm gonna wreck it!" and begins to demolish the building by destroying the windows. As Fix-It Felix comes in to save the day, Ralph throws down bricks at Felix, who must dodge them and fix the broken parts with his hammer, eating pies to become temporarily invincible.

At the end of the game, the Nicelanders throw Ralph off the top of the building, having him unceremoniously fall into a pile of mud, while the tenants of the building present Felix with a medal, thus ending the game.

Trivia

  • As part of Disney's marketing of the film, a version of the game can be played on their website. This is in addition to playable versions of Sugar Rush and Hero's Duty.
  • According to the game-screen, the game was first released in 1982.
  • The game is probably a parody of the classic Nintendo arcade game Donkey Kong, although the Jr. portion of the game's title could be a reference to the game Donkey Kong Jr., in which DK is the captive and Mario is the villain (and DKJr being the only Mario game to feature a villainous Mario).
  • The game also has many elements in common with 1980's Crazy Climber by Nichibutsu/Taito.
  • The ducks seen as obstacles in the later levels resemble the ones from Duck Hunt
  • Like Pac-Man, completing a certain number of levels of this game will cause it to crash and show a "kill screen" just like in this game and at the end of this film.
  • Despite the fact that any video game could potentially risk permanent death if they die outside their own game, this was not the case for either Q*Bert and/or the Q*Bert villains. However, this may be due to the fact that Fix-it Felix Jr. must have reprogrammed them so that they are now permanently part of this game.
