Aloha my wonderful merfolk
As mentioned earlier this week, the look of Sugar Rush is just a delightful and sweet mind overload of pink and cute. Sugar Rush is a racing game within the Wreck-It Ralph universe that involved choosing a candy related racer and trying your best to beat the computer run racers. You can actually play a version of this game here.
Today I thought I would share the wonderful design of the Sugar Rush racers as they’re all so different and cute!
Vanellope Von Schweetz
Vammelope is the true ruler of Sugar Rush but was manipulated into believing she was glitch by King Candy so he could take over. All of the other racers were brainwashed to believe that Vanellope would break the game if she was allowed to race, so, they treated her horribly through the entire movie. During the movie she wears a green hoody and striped leggings, however when she is announced as Princess, she is wearing a big poofy pink dress.
Taffyta is a minor antagonist in the movie. She is a prominent racer in Sugar Rush and drives a pink, hard candy cart. She is second only to King Candy. She is quite mean to Vanellope at the beginning of the movie, however by the end, she is begging for forgiveness for her behaviour, realising how wrong she was.
Candlehead is a minor character in Wreck-It Ralph, however she is one of the more cheerful racers. She is also kinder. However, she will follow whatever Taffyta Muttonfudge tells her to do, which includes bullying Penelope. She is themed around birthday cake and ice cream.
Racis is always very dedicated to what he does, including his bullying behaviour towards Vanellope. He is first seen racing and then giving a gold coin to King Candy before being disturbed by Vanellopes arrival. Rancis is the racer that starts the destruction of Vanellopes racing cart.
Jubileena Bing Bing
Jubileena is themed around cherry pie. Her cheerful smile and enthusiasm are really contagious. She is one of the best racers in Sugar rush, however she doesn’t see winning as the be all and end all. Winning is nice but all that really matters is love and being kind.
Snowanna Rainbeau is a cool chick with some serious style. She has a personality that is as loud and colourful as her hair. Snowanna is themed around snow cones and sorbet and her go-kart signature is the Fro-Cone.
Crumbelina is the poshest racer in Sugar Rush however she considers herself a down and dirty racer. Her appearance seems to be thmed around Italian desserts including cannoli and tiramisu. Her go-kart is the Tiramissle and was used by Vanellope to rescue Ralph.
Gloyd loves nothing more than candy. For Gloyd every day is Halloween as he is themed around candy corn and mellocreme pumpkins. His go-kart is the Kernel.
Swizzle is a lover of adrenaline and thinks life must be lived to the last breath. His racing is fast and elegant and there is no stunt he can’t perform. His candy theme is based on unicorn pops and his go-kart is the Togue Twister. His orange skin and green hair are a reference to the Oompa-Loompa’s from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Minty Zaki/Minty Sakura
Minty Zaki is the queen of the ice cream set in jewel and always has an ace up her sleeve. Minty is the defender of good causes but for the wrong reasons. Minty appears to have an apple toffee motif as opposed to an mint theme. Minty Zaki’s name pays homage to Hayao Miyazaki. In Japan, Minty Zaki recieved a brand new design and was renamed Minty Sakura.
She is the prettiest and most amicable of the racers. She’s a racing and skiing fanatic who has an ice pop and peppermint theme. Her go-kart is the Ice Rocket.
There are a few racers who did not receive their own design and instead were recoloured versions of other racers. There is Citrusella Flugpucker who is a dark blue and purple version of Jubileene Bing Bing. There is Torvald Batterbutter who is an orange and yellow Minty Zaki. Sticky Wipplesnit is a teal and turquoise Minty Zaki and finally, Nougetsia Brumblestain who is a pink and white Adorabeezle Winterpop.
