you might have just bricked your system if you did that, I remember when I had to do that update, I yelled at my sisters to not turn off the Wii U.

I like to rev up those fryers, I play games, I can't draw good, but I make stick figures named Sheldon and Mr. Randoms.

Only a system update would brick the WiiU, because unplugging it would interfere with the system while it is changing files required for it to function.

Unplugging during an update for a game would at worst corrupt the save file, or if the game was downloaded, corrupt that and require it be redownloaded.

Ya, I'm pretty sure Nintendo took extra precaution to make sure your console doesn't break over an accident. They probably have a torture chamber to test it, for setting it on fire, deadly electric shocks, unplugging it's life support(during update), drowning it, hitting it with various weapons, etc... I'm sure your Wii U will be fine. It probably makes a restore point like PC if it does mess up.

Whew, I would be too nervous to do this when it is installing, I'd hate to corrupt my AC3 save and have to redo hours upon hours of tutorial missions!
