While Ralph is content with his current life, Vanellope confesses to being burnt out with her video game's predictability and also yearns for something a lot more. The following day, Ralph tries to applaud her up by producing a secret perk track during a race. Vanellope overrides player control to examine it out, yet the resulting problem in between her and also the gamer results with the steering wheel controller being ruined. Because the company that made Sugar Rush is obsolete, among the children locates a substitute for Mr. Litwak on ebay.com. Sadly, Mr. Litwak finds it too expensive and has no selection yet to disconnect Sugar Rush, leaving the game's citizens homeless.
Later that evening, after chatting with Fix-It Felix Jr., Ralph makes a decision to go into the web via Mr. Litwak's recently mounted Wi-Fi router to get the new wheel on eBay. Ralph brings Vanellope with him, and although they win the bid to get the wheel, they are incapable to pay as well as should make the purchase within 24 hours.

Vanellope thinks the accident was her fault, yet a guilty Ralph discusses what he had done. Really feeling betrayed, she takes the hero medal she made him six years prior and also tosses it away. While Ralph rushes to recoup the medal, which was now broken in fifty percent, the Insecurity Infection checks him and replicates his character flaws. This leads Wreck it Ralph to a legion of Ralph duplicates that ruin the Internet on a widespread search for Vanellope. The actual Ralph discovers her, and also they deal with Yesss to lead the clones right into an anti-virus software application. However, the duplicates collect right into a huge robot of Ralph as well as foil their strategy. Seeing that Ralph is combating a shedding battle, Vanellope abandonments herself, but Ralph refuses to accept this. He challenges his duplicates by admitting to his instabilities and informs the automaton a physical splitting up does not indicate the end of their relationship. With his instabilities fixed, the clones break down, and the Net is brought back, while Ralph is conserved from falling to his fatality by the synergies of the Disney Princesses.
Later, Shank schedules Vanellope to respawn in Massacre Race, enabling her to remain. Ralph provides her fifty percent of his damaged medal and go back to the gallery.
