When Litwak's Arcade closes at night, the various video game characters leave their normal in-game roles and socialize in a power strip. Wreck-It Ralph, the villain of the game Fix-It Felix Jr., is ostracized by its other characters, while the titular hero Felix is celebrated. After the game's inhabitants exclude Ralph from their thirtieth anniversary party, he sets out to earn a medal for himself to gain his neighbors' respect. Ralph overhears that he can win a medal from the first-person shooter, Hero's Duty. He disrupts the game during a fight with Cy-Bugs to obtain the medal. He and a Cy-Bug are ejected from the game via an escape pod, crash landing in the game Sugar Rush, a candy-themed kart racing game.

Meanwhile, with Ralph missing, his game is labeled as malfunctioning. Felix worries that Ralph has "gone Turbo"—a term coined by the inhabitants of the arcade when racing game character Turbo, jealous of being overshadowed, attempted to take over a newer racing game RoadBlasters, which resulted in both of their games being unplugged. Felix ventures to Hero's Duty and allies with the game's heroine, Sergeant Calhoun, to retrieve Ralph.

In Sugar Rush, a young girl, Vanellope von Schweetz, steals Ralph's medal to buy her way into the nightly race that determines which characters are playable the next day. King Candy, the ruler of Sugar Rush, forbids her from racing because she has glitches that cause her to teleport erratically. Ralph and Vanellope agree to work together to retrieve his medal and help her win a race. They build a kart and hide out at Diet Cola Mountain, an unfinished race track, where Ralph teaches her to drive.

King Candy hacks the game's code to obtain Ralph's medal and offers it to Ralph in exchange for preventing Vanellope from racing. He claims that if Vanellope wins and becomes playable, her glitches will lead to Sugar Rush being unplugged. Ralph reluctantly agrees and destroys Vanellope's kart despite her pleas. Distraught, she tells Ralph that he "really is a bad guy" and runs off. A heartbroken Ralph leaves Sugar Rush to travel back to his own game, which has been evacuated. Ralph notices Vanellope's image on the side of the Sugar Rush cabinet and realizes she was meant to be a playable character. Ralph returns to Sugar Rush and confronts King Candy's assistant, Sour Bill. Bill reveals that King Candy tried to delete her code and prevented her from winning the race as that would cause the game to reset and restore her as a playable character.
