10 Video Game Cameos We Want To See In Wreck-It Ralph 2
Move over Mario, your time has come…

submit to reddit

Sonic, Tails, Zangief, Kano, Pac-man, Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde… the roster of video game character cameos in Wreck-It Ralph is not to be sniffed at. But with a bumper box office over in the US late last year – $183 million, and a whopping $377m so far worldwide – the sequel is practically guaranteed, forcing director Rich Moore to consider who he’s going to ‘cast’ in the next film to top Chun-Li and co. To help him with his quest, here are just 10 of suggestions of characters to include next time around. Let us know who’d you like to see in the comment box below, and for some inspiration, why not check out our 50 Greatest Video Game Characters feature?

10 Video Game Cameos We Want To See In Wreck-It Ralph 2 | Wario
Wario

Despite his humongous coin collection, natty red duds and beautiful (if easily kidnapped) girlfriend, Mario is boring. There, we said it. Wario, however, is the life and soul of the cartridge, screaming and shouting and hell-bent on global domination. Sure, he may resemble a colourblind tramp who’s recently headbutted a passing train, but as anyone who’s played any of the beautifully bonkers WarioWare games will know, he’s a perfectly fit for the manic world of Wreck-It Ralph’s Game Central Station. Plus, as perhaps the most unhinged bad guy in the history of kiddy-friendly gaming, can you imagine his confessions at bad guy therapy group Bad-Anon? He’ll be the one on the constantly revving yellow motorbike, bellowing gibberish.

Thinking of a Glados cameo, perhaps she could run a cake stand? Or maybe even just be running an obstacle course of some kind to hint at her Testing Obsession. More

One of the athletes from "Track and Field". Would be funny to see a gamer hitting the buttons fast and hard. Or Hunchback. Gorf! More

Good call on Lemmings. They could just be there in the background the whole time, with no reference made to them, just for people to spot. More

Erm I thought everyone in the film were from Arcade games (Yes sonic has had one) as it was based in a Arcade Hall. This whole list is mostly pointless as its all home video game characters. So unless he moves to a home video system it would not make sense. The cameo`s were funny but not a big part of the film. But I have to say I was shocked there was no mention of Tron in the film at all even though Disney film. More
