* ThreeDMovie: Unlike most of its contemporaries, this movie was filmed from the outset in 3D format, as opposed to being later converted in post production. The camera equipment used was also a generational step beyond the 3D technology used in ''Film/{{Avatar}}''. Note: The "real world" footage is presented in 2-D, and the "Electronic world" footage is presented in 3-D, as per the filmmaker's intentions.

** ''Franchise/StarWars'': The fight on the retractable bridge, the dogfight (complete with Quorra announcing "It's gonna be rough" and flicking some overhead switches), Sam initially mistaking the Light Cycle baton for a lightsaber, and Kevin's resemblance to Obi-Wan. There's also [[DarthVaderClone masked, black-clad]] bad guy Rinzler with an [[HellIsThatNoise unnerving]] VerbalTic and [[spoiler:actually being former good guy Tron, who returns to the light side and tries to kill his evil master at the end]]. Not to mention a largely mute, acrobatically badass [[TheDragon Dragon]] who reveals his weapon to be a double version of everyone else's. The Black Guards, clad in black with red highlights, also have a moment of activating their DoubleWeapon {{Energy Blade}}s.

* HammyHerald: Jarvis in the Light Cycle Arena, when he introduces Clu. Per Jarvis' comments, Clu wrote the speech, another nod to Clu's egomania.

* HighTechHexagons: Sported by a lot of the architecture on the Grid. As well as the mesh worn underneath most of the Programs' costumes.

* [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled Better to Die than Be Derezzed]]: A program throws himself off a building rather than be conscripted into the games.

* [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney Screw the Rules, I Have Money]] [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight and I'm Doing What's Right]]: Since Sam is Kevin's son and owns a controlling interest in Encom stock, he can get away with a lot of legally questionable actions. For example, after breaking into Encom headquarters, stealing its intellectual property, and freely distributing it across the internet, Sam is merely punished with a couple hours in jail and getting his bike impounded. Plus, it's implied that this isn't the first time it's happened.\\\
Why does he do this? Encom has gone from a shining example of Noblesse Oblige in Kevin's day into a corporation governed by cold greed, and Sam's voicing his disdain for this by griefing them. Our glimpse of the Encom board meeting is clearly intended to cause the audience to sympathize with this attitude. It's mentioned that his annual shenanigans are only tolerated is because he lets the board do whatever they want 364 days out of the year. Not to mention that once the new operating system is online for free, ENCOM immediately decides to act like that was the plan all along and get a nice PR boost.
