Oh the things you can create with a new tablet on your day off. >=-D
Alright video game and Wreck-It-Ralph fans alike: get ready. Cause Ralph's dug deeper into the Tapper's Lost and Found. What he ultimately ends up with is a video game cameo that'll make you crap your pants. >:=-D
In the movie Ralph found objects like the 'Power Up Mushroom' from Mario and the '!' with the sound qeue from the Metal Gear Solid series. And the big question was: how can those things even be in Tapper's or have the respective characters visit that place if they don't really come from an Arcade. I know Mario was in arcades; but not Snake.
Well there was no logical explanation behind it. But I have one.
Portable game systems. You know like Nintendo DS, PSP and even Gameboy Advance. I'm sure kids carry those things with em all the time. Sometimes they need to be charged up so they must plug their games in the outlets in the arcade. This allows the passage of travel for the characters.
Of course that means they run the risk of being shut out of their game. So they must grab their drinks quickly and as a result: they leave some pretty important stuff behind.
Three more iconic video game items found their way in the Tapper's lost and Found. From top to bottom Ralph has dug through them.
The first thing he comes across is a jar with a tiny fairy in it. Wouldn't you know it? It's Navi from 'The LEgend of Zelda.' Why is she in a jar? Well maybe Link didn't wanna lose her (way to go buddy XD) or she was too annoying. I guess Link was disappointed Tapper's doesn't serve Lon Lon milk.
The bottle is kind of floating in Ralph's hand as it does whenever Link finds an item from a treasure chest or purchases it. Only thing it's not floating over Ralph's head like it does with Link. XD
Quickly putting Navi away (thank you Ralph) he digs through it again looking for a medal hopefully.
And wouldn't ya know? he grabs one of the most iconic video game pieces ever: a Pokeball!! And look who it is! It's Pikachu!! XD What Pokedouche (cough...Ash....) left him behind in such a hurry? XD
Oh and even Ralph's being kind of a douche to Pikachu. Sure he put Navi back. But he just tosses Pikachu over his shoulder with the Pokeball. I wanted Pikachu to say "PIKA!!" as he got tossed. But I didn't want to kill the joke and no word bubble could fit in that space.
And now...what's this? What does Ralph see this time?
Something big. Something shiny. Is it a medal!?
No....it's a HEAD!!!
It's JENOVA'S HEAD!!!!! O.O
Yes: the one winged angel Sephiroth was here apparently. Not only did he leave the head behind, but his mother too! Wow. Now Sephiroth really is a king douche!!
Oh and how can JENOVA's head be here? Well Final Fantasy VII IS on PSN you know. It makes sense. XD
What doesn't make sense is why Tapper would keep a head he found in the Lost and Found. And why didn't he report a black caped man carrying a head and a seven foot sword? XD
Ralph is understandably freaked out.
The last panel was the 'BIG FINISH!' I made this pose of Ralph real original along with his face. Man that face. XD I can't blame him. Jenova's head is the creepiest thing you could be carrying around this place.
This took hours to make. I started at like 10 pm last night: finished at 7:30 am. (I work nights and it was my day off so no biggie.)
My goal was to take an idea and flesh it out as much as possible. The background was done in complex colors. Ralph himself was not as detailed so he wouldn't blend in with it and the gags were made more clear.
With the sequel underway: I can only wonder what other video game cameos will make their way into the next film. I can only imagine maybe a few here could.
I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did making it.
Wreck It Ralph belongs to Disney
Legend of Zelda, Navi, Pokemon and Pikachu belong to Nintendo.
Sephiroth and Jenova belong to Square-Enix
