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.

Interesting facts about BTS
  • The group name, “BTS” stands for the Korean expression Bangtan Sonyeondan which translates to “Bulletproof Boy Scouts”. Band member J-Hope said that they chose this name because it represents BTS’s desire “to block out stereotypes, criticisms, and expectations that aim on adolescents like bullets.” But that isn’t the only meaning behind the name. In 2017, BTS said, as part of their new brand identity, that their name would also stand for Beyond the Scene” which extended their name to mean “growing youth BTS who is going beyond the realities they are facing, and going forward.”
  • BTS was originally intended to be a hip-hop group, similar to YG Entertainment’s 1TYM. This was because Big Hit Entertainment CEO Bang Si-hyuk met with RM and was very impressed by his rapping talents. However, Bang Si-hyuk changed his mind and decided that today’s youth needed “a hero who can lend them a shoulder to lean on, even without speaking a single word.”
  • BTS has said that all of the following musicians have inspired their music; Post Malone, Eminem, Seo Taiji and Boys, Nas, Kanye West, Drake, Charlie Puth, Danger, and Queen.
