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

Standing awkwardly above a sea of cutesy platforming heroes, Abe is perhaps the ugliest leading man ever to achieve minor celebrity status in gaming. As well as his somewhat unconventional appearance, what makes him so charming is his generous, happy, peace-loving nature, starting off as an enslaved Mudokon alien under the thumb of the evil Glukkons before jumping, leaping and puzzling his way out of the evil RuptureFarms complex to save the day. Morally complicated and ethically fascinating, the Oddworld games are real gems in their genre, and to have their gangly star crop up in Wreck-It Ralph 2 would be a real pat on the back for an underappreciated icon, though Abe may have to do something about his notoriously dodgy digestive system…

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

8 Track and Field
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
