- Video game characters are seen drinking from martini glasses in a party sequence.
- One of the video games in the movie is called Tapper, which involves a bartender serving mugs to customers which dialog identifies as root beer. Tapper is a real-life video game, not just from this movie, that was controversial in the 1980s because it did in fact involve beer and was sponsored by Budweiser. However, the real game developers later released a kid-friendly version called "Root Beer Tapper." The version in Wreck-It Ralph looks like the original game but calls the mugs root beer.
