At the end of Wreck-It Ralph, President Venellope decides not to give up her "glitch" powers - she says something along the lines of "Why would I want to give that up?", and demonstrates that she can still "glitch" from place to place, calling it a superpower.

Earlier, we saw that since she was a glitch, she can't leave the game - there's an effect similar to a force field that blocks her. Given that she still has her glitch abilities, how is she able to leave to the Internet in Ralph Breaks the Internet?


Having the ability to glitch and being a glitch aren't the same thing.

When Ralph confronts Sour Bill about Vanellope's picture being on the side of the game the following conversation takes place

Sour Bill: Vanellope was a racer until King Candy tried to delete her code!

Ralph: Tried to delete her code? So that's why she's a glitch!

After Sour Bill explains that King Candy also locked up all of their memories he says:

He'll do anything to keep her from racing. Because if she crosses the finish line, the game will reset and she won't be a glitch anymore!

Vanellope did the cross the finish line and her code was reconnected to the rest of the game making her no longer a glitch. However, she chose to keep the ability to glitch. She did not decide to remain a glitch. Thus she can leave her game whenever she wishes.

  • I think that the implication was that her special ability was the glitch-looking flash teleport.. I don't remember anything suggesting she chose, or otherwise had the ability to choose to keep something like this.
