Added DiffLines:

* [[SnarkyNonHumanSideKick Snarky Non-Program Sidekick]]: Seems to be a trait for all Bits and their [[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh upgraded Byte counterparts]] to dole out the sarcasm at the expense of the human or Program they're accompanying.

* TheChick: Definitely the emotional anchor for the group inside the Grid.

to:

* BehindEveryGreatMan: As pointed out in the Fridge page, Tron handles the fighting, but Yori handles most everything else.
* TheChick: Definitely the emotional anchor for the group inside the Grid.Grid, and no apparent combat ability.

to:

* SmallRoleBigImpact: On screen for roughly ten minutes, and effectively written out of the sequels (dead in one canon, stuck in Washington DC for the other) but ''she'' co-invented the laser that got the whole franchise started, she was the one who persuaded Alan that they needed to warn Flynn, and she came up with the plan to break them into Encom and become a PowerTrio. Oh, and wrote Yori on top of all that.

* 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.

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"



* TheEngineer: She designed the Solar Sailer that gets them out of the city and most of the way to the fight with Master Control.

to:

* DespairEventHorizon: She hits it briefly when the Sailer is destroyed, she sees Dumont being dragged away to certain de-rez, Tron's apparently dead, and Flynn's imprisoned with her. Flynn talks her out of it.
* EarlyBirdCameo: During the scene where Gibbs's team is digitizing the orange, there's a readout on the lower right of the screen saying "ROM YORI, LOAD YORI," meaning she has a role in running the digitizer. This may be the reason Master Control left her alive while sending her bondmate to the Games.
* TheEngineer: She designed and helped to build the Solar Sailer that gets them out of the city and most of the way to the fight with Master Control.Control.
* HappilyMarried: Or at least the Program equivalent of "committed relationship" with Tron. The DeletedScene demonstrates that they live together as a unit, much like their creators.


Added DiffLines:

* BadassBiker: A survival requirement in that universe, but the fact he's awesome enough to be ''Tron's wingman'' says a lot.

Added DiffLines:

* TheReliableOne: A stable, reliable fellow who tends to plan ahead as compared to Flynn's flashier "make it up as I go along" style. Becomes especially prominent in the ExpandedUniverse, where he tended to run interference between Flynn's more outlandish ideas and the corporate board and hold the line of Flynn's (and Gibbs's) vision for Encom in the sequel timelines.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.]]

* 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.

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.



* LingerieScene: Cut from the final release, but seen on DVD. She waits for Tron at her place while wearing a loose nightgown and basically a TronLine-covered onesie.

%%* PlayfulHacker

to:

%%* PlayfulHacker* 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.

** {{Downplayed|Trope}} at the end of the film [[spoiler:after Flynn's documentation of Dillinger's plagiarism is displayed on his desk screen, and he realizes his game is up. He says nothing, but the look on his face is enough]].

* OhCrapSmile: {{Downplayed|Trope}} during his "talk" with Alan right after Alan drops the bombshell that, yes, his software will run independently. And oh, yes. Said software ''can'' disable Master Control. Dillinger slaps on his best fake smile, says [[BlatantLies "sounds good"]] and hustles Alan out of the office ASAP.

** ChessmasterSidekick: He becomes this to Flynn once the plan is in place to break into Encom, and between the films, becomes the man who put Flynn's big ideas for Encom into practical reality.
