Candlehead is a secondary character in Wreck-It Ralph. She is a racer in Sugar Rush and close friends to Taffyta Muttonfudge and Rancis Fluggerbutter. She bullies Vanellope for her status as a glitch. She is voiced by Katie Lowes.
Candlehead first appears racing alongside several other Sugar Rush racers in the Gumball Gorge. After the arcade closes, Candlehead joins the other racers at the Random Roster ceremony to pay her fees for the upcoming Random Roster Race. She is the last racer to deposit her gold coin before Vanellope shows up and deposits Ralph's medal. When the glitch is discovered and security tries to arrest her, Ralph shows up, wanting his medal back, and Candlehead flees the scene. Ralph is capture, but Vanellope escapes in her hand-made kart. Taffyta then tells Candlehead and Rancis to follow her to find Vanellope.
Candlehead and the other racers soon find Vanellope in the junkyard, where Vanellope presents her poorly-built kart to them. Unimpressed, the racers try to get her to back out of the race, and when she doesn't, Taffyta starts to destroy the kart, which Candlehead and the other racers join in on. Vanellope tries to get Taffyta to stop by pulling her away from the kart, but is shoved into a mud puddle. An escaped Ralph sees this and charges at the racers, scaring them away. Candlehead gives one glance at Ralph and Vanellope before driving off with the other racers.
Candlehead later appears in the Random Roster Race powering up her kart. The race starts, and Candlehead gets into third place. However, Vanellope joins in with a new kart and catches up to Candlehead, Taffyta, and Rancis. Taffyta orders Candlehead to light the cherry bombs on fire to blow Vanellope off track, and it appears to work, but Vanellope glitches in front of the racers while their entering a large cannon. This terrifies the three and they miss the jump and land in an ice cream sundae, blowing out Candlehead's candle, much to her distress.
The race is halted by an attack from a Cy-Bug swarm nesting in Sugar Rush. Candlehead and the other racers flee into Game Central Station, but King Candy, revealed to be Turbo, is consumed by a Cy-Bug. After the attack is quelled and the swarm is destroyed, Candlehead returns to her game. Vanellope crosses the finish line, resetting the game and restoring the racers memories of her being princess. Horrified, Candlehead blames Taffyta for making her bully Vanellope. Vanellope states she will have them all executed, terrifying her and the other racers, but Vanellope reveals she was only joking. Candlehead invites Vanellope into the group of racers shortly afterwards. She is later invited to Felix and Calhoun's wedding.
