The Surge Protector is a minor character in the 2012 Disney animated film Wreck-It Ralph. He acts as a security guard for Game Central Station.

Official Disney Bio

With Surge Protector having the duties of a high school hall monitor and the officiality of a mall rent-a-cop, this straight-laced civil servant is more hassle than help. But electrical voltage spikes are no laughing matter. Like a border patrol cop, he checks those in Game Central Station for fruit. His duty is to check security, but he is known to stop bad guys more than good guys, particularly Ralph, stopping him every single time he enters or exits a game and claiming these to be random security checks, constantly annoying the bad guy.

Role in the film

The Surge Protector is first seen when Ralph is exiting Pac-Man, stopping the latter for a "random security check" which, according to Ralph, occurs on a regular basis.

Later on, the Surge Protector is seen when Ralph sneaks into Hero's Duty, and again when Ralph is being blasted through Game Central Station in a shuttle from the same game. Afterwards, Fix-It Felix, Jr. and Sergeant Calhoun are searching for Ralph, and the Surge Protector informs them that the space shuttle the bad guy was riding in flew into Sugar Rush.

During the end credits, Surge Protector is seen writing graffiti on the walls on Game Central Station. He zips away the moment he realizes he was spotted.

Trivia

  • Surge Protector's voice actor, Phil Johnston, was also a writer for the film.
  • Despite his job, he draws graffiti like a punk.
    • In the credits, he is seen drawing his voice actor's name in graffiti.
  • In real life, a surge protector is a feature inside a power strip that regulates how much electricity is discharged from a certain appliance, and is also responsible for preventing voltage spikes that could potentially short out said appliances.
  • Despite being called "Surge Protector," he does not function as a real surge protector, which his job is more of security worker. As shown in the movie, he is actually incapable of "protecting" against real power surges such as when Ralph zips around wildly in the shuttle.
