Turbo!KC vs Real!KC Comparison by cuddlesaurus21 Turbo!KC vs Real!KC Comparison by cuddlesaurus21

Just a comparison chart explaining the differences (both visual and non-visual) between Turbo!King Candy and Real!King Candy in my own little Wreck-It Ralph AU (when/if I do any more fanwork for it, or just in my head otherwise). The slight weight change is merely a detail I added for interest (Real!KC liking food more than Turbo and Turbo being more serious about training than real!KC are neither one meant to be bad things, just random personality differences), and the shadows around the eyes are something I've seen omitted in some other folks' fanart as well, and just thought up an explanation for myself (Turbo's skin filtering through the code). The other notes, of course, are about Turbo being mean and real!KC being kindhearted.

More of my head-canons about real!KC and his friends and family:
-King Candy's first name is "Marchpin." ("Vanellope" = vanilla, "Marchpin" = marzipan/marchpane.)
-When veteran players who've unlocked King Candy decide to play with him, Vanellope switches places with him as commentator. This is why the game gave them the same royal white car (they share it), and why Vanellope has a fancy dress in the code as well as her original white racing suit seen on the console art.
-Turbo was hiding out throughout the arcade for a long time after his game was unplugged. After honing his hacking skills unobtrusively in other games (he overheard the Konami code from human players talking near the screens in the arcade [and wrote it on that napkin from Tapper's] and used it to access secret areas in several games), he eventually came upon Sugar Rush and felt it was the best target for his plans, being a racing game, after all. About five or six years before the movie took place in 2012 (but still several years after Sugar Rush's initial plug-in in the late 1990's), he snuck into the royal castle and made his move. When Turbo hacked into King Candy's folder, he took all his appearance/body codes and partial mannerism codes (like the lisp and the giggle, which he knew he had to have to fool the veteran players and out-of-game visitors) and placed them over himself (kind of like he did for Ralph's medal in the movie), leaving King Candy's true mind and heart as a sort of "ghost." Since his code was merely "splintered" rather than destroyed, Real!KC was not technically dead, so his spirit stayed in the code core and the game rather than moving on to the afterlife. Real!KC spent most of his time taking comfort in his memories (unlike the other characters', Turbo didn't bother locking them up, possibly because he was sharing the same folder and didn't want to risk damage to it) or just sadly sleeping. He also sometimes hovered around Vanellope and her folder--without a body, he was powerless to repair the snapped wires, but he tried to send his daughter comforting thoughts, hoping she could feel his presence watching over her. Vanellope did sometimes recieve vague feelings of warmth, and faint lullabies in her head at strange moments, but she didn't know where they came from.
-Turbo!KC treated Taffyta as his "pet," praising her above all the other little racers and having a sort of friendly rivalry with her (as close as he could come to being friendly, anyway), the two often practicing together. This is why Taffyta was particularly forceful in her bullying of Vanellope--Turbo influenced her greatly, and kept encouraging her to think of Vanellope as something less than human. Taffyta is therefore the most emotionally troubled of the Sugar Rush kids after Turbo!KC's demise and real!KC's return, because of her various feelings of confused guilt and wistfulness alike. After he learns about this, real!KC treats Taffyta with extra gentleness and concern, and has a few heart-to-heart talks with her, and then she starts feeling and acting better.
-Real!KC is more considerate towards Sour Bill than Turbo!KC was, but also more teasing towards him (up to and including grabbing him at unexpected moments and tweaking his permanent frown into a smile with his fingers). It takes Sour Bill a little while to relax and get used to both the extra leeway and the extra ribbing again.
-Upon his return, real!KC declares Ralph, Felix, and Sgt. Calhoun honorary knights of Sugar Rush. Calhoun is oddly touched that King Candy, Vanellope, and the other Sugar-Rush-ians start referring to her as "Lady Tamora" after this, since before that, not many people called her by her first name.
-Real!KC does not approve of the "potty-mouthed" vocabulary Vanellope picked up during her time as an orphaned glitch. He gently discourages her from using "stinky" phrases and the like, with overall success, but she always reverts back to them whenever they visit Ralph, the two having to enjoy their "insult game" again. King Candy chides them both about this, but only good-naturedly.
-Beard Papa (the sleeping guard at the kart bakery) is one of several "bakery gnomes" (including some females), the only other humanoid characters in Sugar Rush besides King Candy and the racing children. The gnomes are the parents of the other little racers, so Vanellope isn't the only one with a caregiver. Still, the kids all look up to King Candy and love him quite a lot, and he's like an extended paternal figure to all of them, just with Vanellope as his first and foremost concern.

So we can assume that the generic sounding announcer voice that we heard in the film could have just been a placeholder for King Candy that was put into sugar rush during it's development.

More or less, yes, that's how things would work in my head-canon version of the story. :thanks: Or maybe Turbo even found a way to write those lines in himself, with his hacking skills (provided he could find a voicebank [perhaps a random candy-person citizen's] somewhere to make it from).

Thanks! :) It was a cool little experiment, taking the same sketch and then tweaking the facial features a bit... I was surprised at how different it really did make them look when I was done with it!

That's fine, I just wondered! :) To reiterate, again, um, the King Candy you'll see on the screen, if you ever do watch the movie, turns out to noooooooot be a good guy. At all. :XD: But this chart probably already explains that and everything.

I really love cute characters and father-daughter themes both, so the theory of there being a good, pre-existing KC--who has all the cute outer qualities and none of the bad inner ones Turbo put in there, and who's Vanellope's (one of the main characters) father--just warmed my heart so much, and I ran with the idea. (Plus, it really seemed awkward, to me, in the movie, that there wouldn't be any real adults in Vanellope's game, nor a commentator for the races, if she's busy racing... so that made the real!KC theory oddly logical and satisfying too.) Anyways, I'm rambling. I'm honored you like it too! :aww:

Yay! :aww: And I'm glad you pointed that out--I don't mean this in a bragging way at all, but that really struck me as well, about the differences, as I was making/coloring this. It was an interesting exercise, taking the same sketch and then using an eraser and altering certain lines.

Thanks again, Bells! :hug:

I like how you drew the real!KC :D I can totally imagine him having a jolly face with a little tummy sticking out. The evil KC looks like the complete opposite from the real one as if he was an evil clone or something. This reference sheet is nicely detailed ;)

cuddlesaurus21 Featured By Owner Edited Oct 27, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Aww, thank you, amiga! :aww: Yes, I can imagine that too--I do think real!King Candy would be a jolly little fella. The King Candy in the movie was always laughing all over himself during the announcements, so I like to think that was part of the "mannerism codes" Turbo stole, and real!KC would have that cute laugh a lot of the time with a genuinely kind and cheerful heart behind it. :heart:

I'm glad the difference shows up so well! "An evil clone," yes, that's essentially what Turbo!KC was, the way I see it--he had the same "digital DNA" covering his body outside, but with a different mind/spirit inside.

Thank you again!

Aww, thank you so much! :thanks: Yeah, I did almost cry writing/thinking about that part too... real!KC had a rough couple of years while Turbo was using his outer code. :( But thankfully, he made it through with faith, and then he regenerated after the movie and was able to have a happy, normal life again. :)

But I'm thinking about something that's so sad as same as.

No Arcade games can be populate forever, Game Center too, soon or later, unplug time will come.

Game center are out-trend, as same the DVD rental shops and film develop booths, Sugar Rush and Fix-It Felix were unpluged as same as another games that's the out trend time come to, and there were abandoned in once the dark werehouse, many people forgot them many decades.

until 15 year later....the silent and darkness in the werehouse are interrupt by the noise of angle grinder that's cutting the rusty lock, the lock was cut, the door is open, someone walk in.

Bob, the fat man who's look like the Mario in real life, except he;s wearing a brown tweed jacket, not a red overall, he's the specialist in old arcade console game restoration, he purchased this werehouse for expand his business, and don't thing this is the destiny that's bring him to meet the 2 classic arcade games that's he look for long time, Sugar Rush and Fix-It Felix.

Bob my OC that's just pop up in my mind.

Aww... that's a comforting thought. :thanks: I was thinking that maybe the characters somehow escape to the world of computer-and-internet-based games after the arcade closes, or maybe WiR could be an AU where arcades remain popular in the 21st century. But your story with Bob sounds nice too. :)

:iconvernondursley:
vernondursley Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2015
your idea also excellent, they not only escape to the world of internet and computer, but can jump to any electronic devices too (TV, smartphone, MP4 player, etc.)

many AU with your universe of WiR and my OC also pop up in my mind again, but sorry for I suck in drawing.

the reason why I imagine bob to become like Mario because that's relate directly to video games verse, and I imagine he should be fat because...many characters you like to draw also fat too, and sure cute and lovely like "Unca Scotty".

Aww, I'm honored you like it so much! :thanks: Yeah, sometimes when I get a new fandom it really takes over my head, so I did spend several days going over the backstory theory in the back of my mind.... :XD: I'm not the first to have the real!King Candy theory (in fact my first look-through for WiR fanart is what introduced the idea to me), but everybody does seem to have a slightly different take on how it works and how it happened.

Thanks so much! :aww: Yeah, the idea of a real King Candy made a lot of sense to me too, and I figured he would indeed have been a nice character in his true form (and hopefully comes back after the movie to be so again!). :)

I'm glad there are apparently still fans of this cute little movie around, since I saw it a couple of years late, myself! :giggle:

Wow, thank you so much!! :thanks: I had fun thinking up all the side details, and the hacking backstory just... kind of came from me puzzling out how it could have happened, filling in the blanks the movie left the best I could in my own little fanwork-universe. I'm glad it sounds believable! Thank you again!
