When Litwak's video game store closes at night, the characters in the games return to normal and are free to travel to other games via power lines. Wreck-It Ralph, the antagonist of the game Fix-It Felix Jr., was ostracized for being the antagonist of the game, while celebrity hero Felix was praised and awarded a medal. At the meeting between the villains from the games, Ralph revealed his desire not to continue to be the villain. After the residents of the game excluded Ralph from their thirtieth anniversary party, he began earning himself a medal in order to earn the respect of his neighbors. He saw a character from Hero's Duty and thought he would go to this game to find a medal. During this time he accidentally made a Robot, the game's enemy escaped. Meanwhile, with Ralph missing, a gamer reported to the game store owner Fix-It Felix apparently broken. The damaged game will be unplugged, the characters of the game will become homeless, so Felix sets out to find Ralph.
Ralph fell into Sugar Rush, a sweet candy kingdom with auto racing game. He dropped the medal in the hands of Vanellope von Schweetz, a character with a programming error who wanted to use his medal to buy tickets to a race to get on the game's list of characters. Other racers, including the game's ruler, the King of Candy, refused Vanellope's participation, claiming she could never be part of the game. Sympathy for Vanellope, Ralph helps make her a car and teaches her how to drive. Meanwhile, Felix enters Hero's Duty and meets Sergeant Calhoun, the game's nonsense leader, who warns that the Robots will destroy any game they invade. While searching for Ralph and the Robots in Sugar Rush, Felix develops a crush on Calhoun, accidentally reminding her of her late fiancé, who pushes Felix out of the spaceship. Calhoun finds a nest of Robots eggs underground, and Felix becomes a prisoner in the Candy King's castle.
Desperate, the King of Candy enters the system area of Sugar Rush to get Ralph's medal and return it to Ralph, saying that letting Vanellope join the race will be a disaster for her and the game. Fearing for Vanellope's safety, Ralph destroyed Vanellope's car and returned to his game, but by then everyone was gone. Ralph then accidentally sees an image of Vanellope outside the Sugar Rush's chassis and realizes she is part of the game. Ralph returns to Sugar Rush, saves Felix and Vanellope, and asks Felix to repair Vanellope's car. With the race going on, the Robots are attacking. When Vanellope caught up with the Candy King, she realized he was in fact Turbo, a character in an outdated racing game sabotaging a newer game out of jealousy, causing both of them to be unplugged. Vanellope escapes Turbo, he is swallowed by a Machine Bug.
The people ran away from Sugar Rush, but Vanellope was unable to get through the exit because she was still at fault. Calhoun realizes that the game cannot be saved because there is no bright light to attract and destroy the Robots. Ralph headed towards Diet Coke Mountain, a game volcano where he intended to drop mentos above the crater into the hot coke pool below to cause an eruption like a bright light to destroy the Robots. Before he could finish, Turbo turned into Robot Bug to destroy him, he carried Ralph into the sky and dropped it. Ralph fell to break the crater, intending to sacrifice himself to save the game. Vanellope uses her flicker to save Ralph, and the eruption attracts Turbo and the Robots to their destruction. Vanellope crossed the finish line, restoring her memory of the game and her identity as Princess Vanellope, the ruler of the game and the main character. Felix and Ralph return to their game and it's plugged back in. Calhoun and Felix are married, and the characters of Fix-It Felix, Jr have paid homage to Ralph.
