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.

Disney

LucasArts

  • 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.

  • Ducks from Duck Hunt (as obstacles in Fix-it Felix Jr.)

(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.)

    • 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.
