* 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.

Sinkhole: Not allowed in trope names within lists is Potholing Trope Names. Seriously, sinkhole or no sinkhole, the initial fix was bad form.
* RageAgainstTheHeavens: Part of Clu's motivation is Rage Against the Users.

* [[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.

* CreativeSterility: Clu cannot create new programs, he can only "repurpose" them. This actually seems to fit into the religious undertone of the series, as it's a trope that the Devil (Fallen Angel, in this case Clu) cannot create new life on his own, as that power rests only with God (in this case, Kevin Flynn), so the most he can do is pervert and distort God's creations to his own purposes. This works out for fans, because it meant Clu repurposed and reprogrammed [[spoiler:Tron instead of killing him]]. Clu wanted a champion and enforcer, but couldn't just create a new one from scratch. His answer was to simply reprogram [[spoiler:Tron into Rinzler]]. ** It also fits the UNIX security best practice. Clu, being a single-purpose daemon initially created by Kevin to monitor running programs with ptrace(2) while Kevin himself signed off, along with other programs, cannot fork(2). In order for him to repurpose programs, he have to inject code into other processes and somehow make the injected code run.
