- Vanellope von Schweetz in Wreck-It Ralph takes it Up to Eleven; she seems to have stuck roughly 40 small pieces of candy, including a peppermint disk and a gummy bear, onto her own hair. (Though Ralph says she has "dirty hair"; maybe that's what dirty hair looks like in a world where everything, including the dirt, is made of candy.) Her ponytail is tied with a licorice stick. Some of the other Sugar Rush racers have candy in their hair too, though not to Vanellope's extent. Minty Zaki has a large candy wrapper tied in a bow, Snowanna Rainbeau has a spoon in her sherbet-looking Funny Afro where a hair comb would stereotypically be, and for a male example, Rancis Fluggerbutter has a peanut butter cup on the side of his head.
