Sugar rush au cover

Arcade AU is a fairly new AU (Alternate Universe) within the Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons fandom. In the AU, the Big Four are characters from their own, individual arcade games in Litwak's Arcade from Disney's Wreck-It Ralph.

About the AUEdit

Though this concept was talked about in forums and blogs, it was never fully realized until the Icebreaker pairing was made.

In this AU, Jack, Merida, Hiccup, Rapunzel and other such characters found in different arcade games in the arcade, sharing the same digital universe as Ralph and his friends. Whether or not the games they came from are video-game adaptations of their own respective films (from our real world or not) differs from story to story.

The most common scenario in this AU places the characters as super-deformed versions of themselves as racers in Sugar Rush.

Spinoff AUsEdit

Featured CharactersEdit

The Big FourEdit

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock IIIEdit

Jack FrostEdit

When Jack is featured as a Sugar Rush Racer, his sugary theme is of icy sweets and treats. It is sometimes of a frosting style theme on his Sugar Rush clothing, Go-kart and racing name, due to his name, or of a candy cane theme (that is blue striped) when his staff is made to look like one.

Merida DunBrochEdit

Rapunzel CoronaEdit

Extra CharactersEdit

Wreck-it RalphEdit

Since Ralph is someone that lives and works in a arcade game, he is commonly portrayed as himself (much like how Hiccup is portrayed as himself in the Viking AU).

Vanellope von SchweetzEdit

Since Vanellope is someone that lives and is part of an arcade game, she is commonly portrayed as herself (much like how Jack is portrayed as himself in the Seasons Guardians AU).

King CandyEdit

Since King Candy/Turbo is someone that lived and "was" part of two arcade games, he is commonly portrayed as himself (much like how Gothel is portrayed as herself in the Rapunzel AU).

The Once-lerEdit

Fans have cast the Once-ler as Vanellope's big, caring brother, King Once-Lick (due to the Vaniller pairing), that became King Greed-Pop (which is based on his Greed-er side) when a virus took over and filled him up with greed. He can also be the Bad Guy in his own game, that is based on The Loax film; bad and mean for when the arcade is opened and later becomes his kind and helpful self when the arcade is closed for the night. Much like Ralph.

Queen ElsaEdit

Elsa's original role as the main antagonist, in one of the early drafts of Frozen, and the original design of Evil Elsa is commonly used in Dark AU, it could have her as the "Bad-Guy" of her home game and attends the Bad-Anon: One Game at a Time meetings with the arcade's other bad guys. It could also cast her as a Wreck-It Ralph-like character, as the Icebreaker pairing sometimes has Elsa and Ralph switch clothes for fun, it is the same with the Elsanellope pairing; which can portrayed Elsa as a older version of Vanellope von Schweetz. Or have a younger version of Elsa for the role.

Fans also have Elsa as a Sugar Rush Racer, with a icy treat food, like ice-cream or snowballs, as her sugary theme. On her Sugar Rush clothing and Go-Kart.

Hiro HamadaEdit

Sometimes for the Vaniro pairing, when Hiro is placed in Vanellope's clothes for fun, it portrays him as a older, taller, male version of Vanellope von Schweetz. Fans also have Hiro as a Sugar Rush Racer, sometimes with gummy bears as his sugary theme; while Baymax's white body has him as a Sugar rush civilian that is made out of marshmallows.

Princess AnnaEdit

When Elsa is placed as a Wreck-It Ralph-like character and the "bad-guy" of their home game, Anna can be cast as a Fix-It Felix, Jr.-like character and the "good-guy" of their game.
