Shank's lived a lot, she's seen a lot, yet she's got nothing but kindness in her heart.
―Rich Moore on Shank

Shank is a character in Disney's 2018 animated feature Ralph Breaks the Internet. She is a tough-as-nails netizen from an online racing game called Slaughter Race whom Ralph and Vanellope meet in the Internet.[1]


Shank comes from an extremely intense and gritty online racing game, where she serves as a non-playable boss. She is often accompanied by her crew of followers (Butcher Boy, Felony, Pyro and Little Debbie).[2] Shank takes both her job and her tricked-out car very seriously (the one thing she cannot tolerate, is losing). Grizzled and experienced, Shank gives off a "bad-girl" vibe. Underneath the surface, however, she is fun, warm and wise.[3] She even forms a sisterly relationship with Vanellope, who shares Shank's profession and love of racing.[4]

Physical appearance

Shank wears a black leather hooded jacket, that has a touch of red on its hood and rope that tightens it. She has a tattoo of a knife/dagger on her left arm, that can be seen when she stretches out her arm to hold the steering wheel, as well as wearing red fingerless gloves and has her nails painted. Along with blue jeans, with a black and white belt-buckle, and black boots. Her hair is a dark shade of brown while her eyes are of a lighter shade, her long hair sometimes covers the large ringed earrings that she wears.


According to co-director Phil Johnston, actress Gal Gadot was chosen for the role based on two major factors; one of which was the distinct texture in Gal's voice, while the other involves Shank's relationship with Vanellope—much like Ralph is an older brother figure to Vanellope, Shank becomes something of an older sister. To Johnston and the creative team, Gal's reverence amongst kids and adults made her a natural fit for the character.[4]
