Gene is a minor antagonist and a supporting character of Pooh's Adventures of Wreck-It Ralph. He is the mayor of Niceland, a town within the arcade game Fix-It Felix, Jr. Out of all the Nicelanders in the film, Gene is the most prominent, and, the most antagonistic towards Wreck-It Ralph. Like the others, he fears Ralph because of the latter's role of the villain in their respective game. However, Gene is more likely to express these emotions in an aggressive way. Unbeknown to Gene and the other Nicelanders, Ralph is a very important part of the game, as his absence alone could be the difference between life and death for the characters in Niceland. In the end, he and all the Nicelanders decided to warm up to Ralph by congratulating and praising him with respect for his work as the good "villain" after they see that the game was spared from being unplugged due to Ralph and Felix's return. Although Gene is referred to as the main antagonist by some fans, he is not.
