Focused around video game characters, Disney's 2012 animated feature film, Wreck-It Ralph and its 2018 sequel feature 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.

Concept art for the Tappers scene featured Glass Joe from Punch-Out! as a bar patron. The Bubbles from Clu Clu Land, The Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda, and Piranha Plant from Super Mario Bros. were also initially set to make appearance in the film, but were eventually cut from the final version of the film.

Sega

Capcom USA

Dr. Wily from the Mega Man series was initially set to make an appearance in the Bad-Anon villains support group, but was eventually cut from the final version of the film.

Namco Bandai Games

  • Peter Pepper from BurgerTime
  • Mr. Egg from BurgerTime (on a picture)
  • Mr. Hotdog from BurgerTime (on a picture)
  • Mr. Pickle from BurgerTime (on a picture)

Midway Games

Note: The credits call Kano “Cyborg” most likely as a way of avoiding a direct reference to a video game series that targets an older demographic compared to the film.

Epic Games

  • Ralph's dance is the Floss emote and set in the barn setting from Fortnite.
  • One of the videos shown by Maybe is gameplay footage from Fortnite Battle Royale. Maybe subsequently uses the titular game as a comparison to the number of bee-related pun videos.

Bally Sente

Games featured/homaged during end credits

  • Stage 1 from Q*bert (appearing on the "Screenplay by" credit.)
  • Chemical Plant Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog 2, with the Flame Mobile boss from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (Appearing on the Co-Producer credit.)
  • An 8-bit version of House of the Dead
  • A Hero's Duty cutscene referencing Metal Gear Solid
  • A Sugar-Rush version of Adventure Island
  • A 3-D Hero's Duty level themed after Doom or Castle Wolfenstein
  • Root Beer Tapper
  • The car-breaking bonus stage round from Street Fighter II
  • An 8-bit version of Hero's Duty referencing both Metroid and Super Mario Bros.

Others

  • 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.
  • A caricature of Director Rich Moore (seen behind Ralph in Tapper's).
  • The Astronaut from Jetpac.
  • In the scene when Sergeant Calhoun and Fix-It Felix are in Sugar Rush, they land themselves in a river of NesquikSand, made entirely of over-concentrated Nestlé Nesquik.
    • In the same scene, they must pull themselves out using vines made of Laffy Taffy, which gets attracted to anything they find funny.
  • Several Oreo cookies act as guards at King Candy's castle. Their "Oreo" chant is, in turn, a reference to the guards of the castle of the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz.
  • In one of the scenes that take 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 a made-up game called 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.
  • Stan Lee.
  • The A113 joke.

Helen Chen, one of the visual development artists for the film, was originally supposed to have a cameo as a caricature, however due to unknown reasons she was scrapped.

Mentions and Allusions

  • Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Eeyore, Owl, Kanga and Roo from the Winnie the Pooh series (names appeared on a screen board of the Food Fight arcade cabinet [Note: Eeyore also made a cameo on his own in the movie.])
  • Mario (mentioned by Felix in the 30th Anniversary party. [Note: Mario was intended to have a physical appearance in the film alongside his brother, Luigi. However, the producers could not find a place to work them into the story that felt right for their significance.])
  • Aerith from Final Fantasy VII (referenced and written in graffiti as Aerith Lives on a subway wall in Game Central Station)
  • Sheng Long from the Street Fighter series (his name appears as a graffiti at the portal leading to Sugar Rush)
  • Lara Croft from Tomb Raider (given sarcastically by Wreck-It Ralph as his name when trying to get past the Surge Protector) (Note: Lara Croft was intended to have a physical appearance in the film. However, the producers could not find a place to work her into the story that felt right for her significance.)
  • GLaDOS from Portal (Incorrectly pronnounced as "Gladys")
  • Leeroy Jenkins (shown as graffiti on the Terminal Wall as "Leeroy" and later "Jenkins")
  • Zero Wing (referenced in graffiti on the Terminal Wall as All your base are belong to us)
  • Tron from Tron

False rumored cameos

These are characters that people believe to have seen in the movie while not actually being there. Most of these can even be found in many lists of cameos around the web.

  • Mary Mouse, Perla and Suzy from Cinderella: It was believed that one of them was on Cinderella’s hand when she met Vanellope, but it was actually a completely different mouse, who was seen along with the other 3 mice in the film while cleaning Cinderella’s outfit with a feather.
  • Maximus from Tangled: a white horse in Game Central Station was rumored to be Maximus, but it's actually a generic white horse with no similarity to him other than its color. Oddly enough, "The Gamers Guide", a special feature in the Blu Ray version of the movie that shows some of the hidden easter eggs, also highlights the horse.
  • Lian-Chu from Dragon Hunters: It was believed that he made a cameo, but a closer look shows that it is actually Vladimir from Tangled.
  • Sora from Kingdom Hearts: One of the sprites in the gameplay scene of Tapper was believed by many to be Sora. It was actually proven to just be one of the many generic cowboys in the game, only with matching colors to Sora. Had he appeared, Sora would've been the only Disney character originating from a Disney game to appear in the film, though graffiti of his crown necklace appears in the portal to Sugar Rush.
  • Moogle from the Final Fantasy series: In one of the first renders of Game Central Station, some white and red shapes were believed to be Moogles with their pom-poms. The same image viewed in higher definition shows those shapes to actually be the shirts and pants of generic sport games characters.
  • Deku Link from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask: It was believed that he made a cameo, but a closer look shows that it is actually Bentley Bear from Crystal Castles.
