* BatmanGambit: Possibly. That pager went off ''well'' before Sam's annual prank, but Alan waited until after the prank was over ,and seemed to be choosing his words specifically to goad Sam into investigating the arcade.

%%* ParentalAbandonment

to:

%%* ParentalAbandonment* ParentalAbandonment: The kid's got ''issues'', to the point where bringing up his dad can be a minor BerserkButton, even if his motive for pranking the company is to remind them how far they've pulled away from his dad's (and Gibbs's, by extension) ideals.



%%* FourEyesZeroSoul
* HypercompetentSidekick: To the CorruptCorporateExecutive Mackey. Also, in the bonus material Flynn Lives, Alan mentions that "the kid earned his place." After all, it must not be easy to rise in a company where your father was publically revealed to be a fraud.

to:

%%* FourEyesZeroSoul
* FourEyesZeroSoul: Thick hipster glasses, comes up with a ''very'' slick way to make the board look good and profit from Sam's prank and [[spoiler: is collaborating with a resurrected Master Control in the bonus scenes.]]

%%* CorruptCorporateExecutive

to:

%%* CorruptCorporateExecutive* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Sure, he's going to charge schools, non-profits, and consumers out the nose for an overpriced OS where the only "justification" he can give is a new number on the box. What's wrong with that?



* GoldColoredSuperiority: Started with white TronLines when he was loyal to Flynn, but assumed the gold colors after he was unquestioned ruler, and is the only one who does have gold circuits.



* APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil: Kevin programmed him for good.

to:

* APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil: Kevin programmed him for good. The Betrayal comics and ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' seem to point to him being a BastardUnderstudy the entire time, though.



%%* TotalitarianUtilitarian

to:

%%* TotalitarianUtilitarian* TotalitarianUtilitarian: A "perfect" system where he reigns unquestioned above an army of perfectly rectified drones.



* DisnetDeath: [[spoiler: His lights change color and we never see him derez. There's plenty of ambiguity, but it looks like he might be starting to swim back up just as the scene changes.]]

* DisnetDeath: DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: His lights change color and we never see him derez. There's plenty of ambiguity, but it looks like he might be starting to swim back up just as the scene changes.]]



* [[RedEyesTakeWarning Red Lines Take Warning]]: He has red circuits like the rest of Clu's mooks, though Clu didn't change the ''pattern.'' [[spoiler: Big hint that he's a rectified drone.]]
* [[spoiler: ReforgedIntoAMinion: He evaded capture after the Coup, started a rebellion in [[{{WesternAnimation/TronUprising}} Argon City]], [[ShoottheShaggyDog which was leveled in retaliation. Sometime after that, he was re-captured, broken, and turned into a rectified drone.]] ]]



* ThreeLawsCompliant: [[spoiler:''Very'' tragically so. First law: He sacrfices himself to let Flynn Sr. escape and stops dead in the arena once he realizes Sam's a User. Second Law: He snapped out of it when he got a good look at Flynn and heard his User friend's dismay. Third law: He did fight to protect his own existence - ''until'' Users were in danger, then he made a suicidal charge on Clu.]]

* {{Expy}}: To Music/DavidBowie in the "Ziggy Stardust" persona. He even talks about having had to "reinvent himself." Possibly unintentional, but the way Michael Sheen plays Castor makes him a dead ringer for Creator/AlanCumming too.
** His VictoryDance and mannerisms also bring to mind Fred Astaire, especially considering he does this with his cane.

* AmbiguousSituation: Due to the details of the prequel ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'', a strong minority of viewers believe that Rinzler's identity [[spoiler:is Beck, the protagonist of that series, instead of Tron as implied in ''Legacy''. The idea stems from the fact that the writers and artists seem to have designed Beck to be what is essentially a non-evil Rinzler in appearance and fighting style, and a major plot point is that he is conditioned to be a replacement Tron.]]

%%* FauxAffablyEvil

to:
