This 52nd Disney animated feature is about an obese 8-bit video game character, named Wreck-It Ralph, who is actually depicted as the villain of the arcade game Fix-It Felix Jr.. Tired of being the bad guy, he tries to prove himself a hero by entering a first-person shooter game called Hero's Duty, where the game's winner wins a medal. But after collecting the medal, he hatches a Cy-Bug, which launches him out of the game and into another game called Sugar Rush, where he meets Vanellope von Schweetz, a young girl who is also a glitch. Vanellope takes the medal to herself and plans to use it to buy entry into a race. But the king of Sugar Rush, King Candy, refuses for this to happen. Ralph helps Vanellope build her own racing kart, while Felix, along with the leader of Hero's Duty, Sgt. Calhoun, enter Sugar Rush to search for Ralph. But after Felix becomes imprisoned in the dungeon of King Candy's castle, he offers Ralph's medal in exchange for keeping Vanellope out of the race. Ralph wrecks Vanellope's kart, then returns to his own game, only to find out that everyone has left the game and that it will be unplugged the next morning. He returns back to Sugar Rush and asks Felix to fix Vanellope's wrecked kart. When the race starts, with Vanellope as one of the racers, King Candy reveals that his real name is Turbo. During the race, an army Cy-Bugs from Hero's Duty begin to take over the game. But eventually, Vanellope crosses the finish line, and the entire game restores itself. Soon Ralph and Felix return back to their own game just in time before it gets unplugged, Felix marries Sgt. Calhoun, and the Fix-It Felix Jr. characters gain respect for Ralph.
