* RecursiveCreators: Flynn casually thanks God that Alan was awake when he received the message from Tron. In the book, Yori is more concerned about this user called God, as opposed to the casual use of Alan's name.

* RealityEnsues: Flynn is able to steal a Recognizer... but since he has no idea how to steer one of these behemoths, the thing goes careening out of control, with Flynn and Bit often hanging on for dear life, and it finally crashes into a building.

* AllThereInTheManual: The novelization, by Brian Daley, gives a lot of little detail that the movie had trouble with. For example, when Flynn and Crom meet in the ring game, Flynn is grinning while Crom looks very hostile. The book makes it clear that Flynn thinks it's another training exercise, while Crom thinks Flynn has turned and is taking a last test of loyalty to the MCP. It's also noted that Dillinger stole several videogame programs from Flynn, and the printout Flynn gets at the end is hard evidence of ''all'' of the thefts. Finally, the novel ends with Tron and Yori taking the Solar Sailer for a spin.... and [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse Bit]] is tagging along.

* AllThereInTheManual: The novelization, by Brian Daley, gives a lot of little detail details that the movie had trouble with. For example, when with:
** Alan shares Tron's Boy Scout-like sense of earnest integrity. Dillinger secretly views this with contempt, but it's that sense of honor that gets Alan to side with Flynn almost immediately, once he's learned what Dillinger had done.
** When
Flynn and Crom meet in the ring game, Flynn is grinning while Crom looks very hostile. The book makes it clear that Flynn thinks it's another training exercise, while Crom thinks Flynn has turned and is taking a last test of loyalty to the MCP.
** Sark is anxious to get rid of Flynn as quickly as possible. First, he puts Flynn in a match against Crom, hoping that either a program will kill a User, or a User will kill a program; either one would be a huge psychological victory for the
MCP. It's also When that backfires spectacularly, Sark decides to run Flynn through game after game with no rest, hoping to tire him out. Again, it backfires when Flynn escapes with Ram and Tron.
** Flynn has gotten to like Bit, and he worries if Bit will be okay after Bit runs away.
** Sark was present at Clu's interrogation. When he confronts Flynn and Yori, Sark -- who never saw Flynn up close -- thinks Clu has come back to life.
** When [[spoiler: Sark's Carrier de-rezzes,]] it is made clear that this is a normal thing, and that [[spoiler: the Carrier can be re-rezzed at any time,]] making it less of an AssPull.
** When the MCP [[spoiler: turns Sark into a giant,]] it is
noted that Dillinger stole several videogame [[spoiler: Sark]] is now little more than a mindless zombie; apparently, programs from Flynn, and the can suffer [[spoiler: massive brain damage]] just as humans do.
** The

Finally, the novel ends with Tron and Yori taking the Solar Sailer for a spin.... and [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse Bit]] is tagging along.

* EnergyDonation: Master Control keeps Sark's loyalty by feeding him large amounts of power, and threatens him frequently with cutting him off or draining him. Master Control also, in desperation, feeds a huge amount of power to Sark's nonfunctional chassis to make him grow to a massive size. The novelization implies that [[spoiler: a dying Ram]] gave up what little energy he had left to Flynn. Later, Flynn transfers a large pulse of energy to a dying Yori to bring her back.

* HeavenAbove: There isn't much of a heaven inside the computer world of the Grid, but still, whenever Tron and other programs think about or make a sign to the Users who created and act as their god-equivalents, they look up to the sky and maybe even hold up their identity discs as a sign of trust.
