< 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.


(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.)


  • Sonic the Hedgehog from Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik from Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Miles "Tails" Prower from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Picture on a wall in Tapper's Bar)
  • Amy Rose from Sonic the Hedgehog CD (on the arcade cabinet of Sonic the Fighters alongside some other Sonic characters; her younger self from Sonic CD is used)
  • Knuckles the Echidna from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles (on the arcade cabinet of Sonic the Fighters and when Vanellope tell Ralph to "bust it open, Knuckles" (debatable)
  • Bean the Dynamite from Sonic the Fighters (on the arcade cabinet of Sonic the Fighters)
  • Bark the Polar Bear from Sonic the Fighters (on the arcade cabinet of Sonic the Fighters)

  • Neff from Altered Beast
  • Cyril the Zombie from House of the Dead
  • Saw-Hand Cyborg from Cyborg Justice
  • Hornet from Daytona USA (on the arcade cabinet of Finish Line)


(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, although some have suggested he may simply be a generic ninja representative of the ninja enemies commonly found in action games
  • Satan from Satan's Hollow, (referred to as "Saitine") 

Namco Bandai



  • Frogger from Frogger
  • Turtles from Frogger
  • Yuni from Dance Dance Revolution

  • 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 Lillith from Darkstalkers.
  • The Konami Code is used as the password to unlock the game vault.

Mentions and Allusions
