King Candy in Wreck-It Ralph

25 villains disguised as good guys 1

In 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph, King Candy (Alan Tudyk) presented himself as someone with a bubbly yet posh personality. Since he genuinely enjoyed his job as king, he gave off the impression that he was a benevolent, jolly, and fun-loving ruler. The truth, however, was that King Candy was vain and corrupt.

Extremely possessive of Sugar Rush, King Candy flaunted his status as king by having his insignia and likeness plastered throughout the game. He also had a fondness for locking people in his “fungeon,” which later revealed to be a sign of sadism. When threatened in the latter part of the movie, King Candy’s cheerful demeanor completely disappeared, revealing his ruthless and violent underlying nature.
