< Wreck-It Ralph

Focused around video game characters, Wreck-It Ralph features numerous video game characters from multiple publishing companies alongside the film's cast of original characters, much like the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit.



  • A Star Wars Arcade game can be seen in the wide view of Litwak's Arcade.
  • Darth Vader breathing can be heard while Ralph is using a wafer as a snorkel as he evades the doughnut cops by hiding underneath the surface of a chocolate lake.


  • Bowser from Super Mario Bros.
  • A Super Mushroom from Super Mario Bros.
  • Ducks from Duck Hunt (as obstacles in Fix-it Felix Jr.)
  • An NES controller as the vault to Sugar Rush's CPU room.
  • Mario in the Fix-It Felix Jr. 30th Anniversary party (Mentioned by Fix-It Felix.)

(Note: Luigi, 1 of the 2 protagonists of Super Mario Bros. were intended to have appeared in the film. However, the producers could not find a place to work them into the story that felt right for their significance, along with paying a hefty licensing fee.)



(Note: Dr. Wily from Mega Man was originally set to make an appearance in the Bad-Anon villains support group, as shown in an early render image. However, he was cut in the final version of the film and replaced with Smoke.)


  • Kano from Mortal Kombat (aka "Cyborg")
  • Paperboy from Paperboy
  • Bartender from Root Beer Tapper
  • Cowboys from Root Beer Tapper
  • Smoke from Mortal Kombat however some speculate that it is not smoke but Ryu Harabusa from Ninja Gaiden and the Dead or Alive series
  • Satan from Satan's Hollow, (referred as "Satine") 

Namco Bandai



  • Frogger from Frogger
  • Turtles from Frogger
  • Yuni from Dance Dance Revolution
  • Leonardo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade cabinet during the wide view of Litwak's arcade)
  • An Exclamation point (!) from Metal Gear


  • Paddle 1 and Paddle 2 from Pong
  • Charley Chuck from Food Fight (on the Food Fight arcade cabinet during the wide view of Litwak's arcade)
  • A racer from RoadBlasters
  • (debatable): Bentley Bear from Crystal Castles



  • Dirk the Daring from Dragon's Lair (briefly on the Dragon's Lair arcade screen during the wide view of Litwak's arcade)

Mattel Eletronics, Inc.

Williams Electronics

  • Knight and Ostrich from Joust

Square Enix


  • Beard Papa the Japanese cream-puff store brand mascot (as the Sugar Rush candy-kart factory security guard, voiced by John DiMaggio)
  • Skrillex as the DJ at the Fix-it Felix Jr. 30th anniversary party.
  • Peter Pan from Peter Pan (one of the Nicelanders is dressed as him at Fix-it Felix Jr. 30th anniversary party.)
  • A caricature of Director Rich Moore (seen behind Ralph in Tapper's).
  • In the scene in which Sargent Calhoun and Fix-It Felix are in Sugar Rush, they land themselves in a river of NesquikSand, made entirely of over-concentrated Nestle Nesquik.
    • In the same scene, they must pull themselves out using vines made of Laffy Taffy, which gets attracted to anything they find amusing.
  • In one of the scenes that takes place in Litwak's Arcade and Family Fun Center near the beginning of the film, a soda with a cup that reads Subway is shown on-screen on an arcade game. (That means this movie partnered up for the first time.)
  • One of the arcade games in Litwak's Arcade is Undead Apocalypse, made by Crosman and Airsoft.
  • The Sorceress bears a resemblance to the Dark Queen from Battletoads with the coloration of Mishela from Shining Force.
  • The Konami Code is used as the password to unlock the game vault.
