* PlayfulHacker: His opening scene is trying to hack into Encom, and his orders to Clu 1.0 indicate he's used his computer skills for a few unsavory purposes.

to:

* PlayfulHacker: His opening scene is trying to hack into Encom, and his orders to Clu CLU 1.0 indicate he's used his computer skills for a few unsavory purposes.



* SupportingLeader: Tron is the title character and the action hero but it's really Flynn's show.



* DeusEstMachina: The Master Control Program is the supreme leader of the digital world and has grown smart enough to blackmail people in the real world.
* EvilIsSterile: The MCP cannot create programs, only [[ReforgedIntoAMinion repurpose]] existing ones.
* EvilOverlord: The MCP oppresses the digital world and is the leader of its Empire.



* MasterComputer: MCP: it's almost his name and primary function.



* NotSoStoic: [[spoiler:When Sark is killed, the MCP is visually audibly distressed and saddened.]]



* TheStoic: The MCP never wavers in his cool, deep voice whether he is threatening or giving basic instructions.



* NotAsYouKnowThem: Following the events of the movie, CLU was rebuilt and vastly upgraded into a powerful Admin program who later became the BigBad of the [[Film/TronLegacy sequel]]. Some fans consider them the same character because they have the same name and actor, but they have very distinct functions and characterization. Others refer to this Clu as "Clu 1.0" and the ''Film/TronLegacy'' one as "Clu 2.0"

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Mercilessly trolls Lora and Alan when they come by to help him out. (Lora clearly got fed up with his shtick ages ago.) Between the films, he has a bad habit of taking his friends and allies for granted. However, it's never done out of malice, and he's very willing to risk his life or even give it for his loved ones if it comes down it it.

%%* NerdsAreSexy

to:

%%* NerdsAreSexy* NerdsAreSexy: Flynn is played by a young Jeff Bridges who changes shirts for the audience in once scene. In-universe he is noted for dating Lora and having an appreciative fan base based on his charisma and gaming skills.

This mode is his default "on" mode and makes snide remarks to his friends, allies, enemies and ''doors''.
* TheresNoPlaceLikeHome: although Although his goals do eventually shift from "get home" to "free the system".



* TheCreon: In the ExpandedUniverse, he becomes Flynn's second in command, and has no interest in taking the company himself. He's a programmer, not a businessman, and does his best work out of the spotlight. [[spoiler: [[Film/TronLegacy Twenty years and change later]], he is very happy to let Sam Flynn be the flamboyant "face" of the company and run interference with the press while he makes the ''real'' decisions behind the scenes.]]

* NerdsAreSexy: Alan manages to look striking in his programming outfit and is in a healthy relationship with Lora.
* NiceGuy: All of his actions are good and nice and even when he's on edge the strongest word he will use is "frustrated". He even lets a coworker have some of his popcorn when he's in a bad mood.



* TechnicianVersusPerformer: He's anything but flashy or charismatic, withers if put in the spotlight, and the most cautious of the PowerTrio. However, it's ''his'' software that actually stands a chance of shutting down Master Control. [[spoiler: And even ''twenty years of brainwashing'' couldn't completely override all the safeties Alan put in.]]

* NerdGlasses: He wears some big spectacles when outside of the lab to highlight his mousiness vs. Dillinger's business savvy.



* EstablishingCharacterMoment: TRON's Badass cred is established in his very first appearance, where he is seeing taking on four other Programs in a blatantly-unfair disc duel...''and wins.'' Then he raises his disc to the sky, as if dedicating his victory to the Users.
* FriendlySniper: Is an expert at throwing his disc.

* ReligiousBruiser: Bordering on ThePaladin. He explicitly states that he fights for [[TheMaker Users]], particularly his creator, Alan. Much of the reason he was sent to the Games was because he refused to abandon that faith. [[spoiler: It's probably dimmed significantly come the TronUprising era]].
* ThreeLawsCompliant: Will not injure a User, or by inaction allow Users to come to harm? Check. [[spoiler: This is a big plot point in the sequel.]] Obeys orders given by Users unless it comes into conflict with the first law? Check. Will fight to preserve his own life ''unless'' it comes into conflict with the first two directives? [[spoiler: Check, and tragically so]].

** YMMV on the impractical: [[spoiler:Sark demonstrates his power by deflecting Tron's multi-striking disc ''with his bare hand''. If not for Flynn's intervention, it's entirely possible Tron would have lost.]]
