* Yori is a character that operates on ''nothing'' but FridgeBrilliance. In the theatrical film, it's difficult to discern what use she has outside of being ShallowLoveInterest...unless you're watching closely and get your hands on that DeletedScene and/or the {{Novelization}}. Her EarlyBirdCameo is shown on a screen well before she shows up in the film (when they're digitizing the orange, the lower right hand side of the screen reads "ROM Yori, LOAD Yori"), establishing she pretty much runs the laser. (Which is why she was captured and turned into a drone instead of being sent to The Games like her husband - Master Control needed her alive). Secondly, notice that even with an ''urgent call from his deity'' on the line, Tron goes and finds her first? [[AlwaysSavetheGirl Okay, so maybe showing some Disney Prince origins here, but]]...Then we get the DeletedScene. Yori's providing the hideout, she's adept at sabotage (highly illegal power reroute), she's the one who actually makes the plans on how to get into the I/O Tower. (And incorporates them into foreplay!) It's ''her'' connection to Dumont that gets the old Guardian to relent. And ''she'' is the one who designed and piloted the getaway vehicle (the Solar Sailer). The only thing she ''isn't'' handling is the combat, which is her husband's job.

* Of course, death was permanent for fellows like Crom and Ram. They were accounting applications, not game bots. [[WreckItRalph And when they did die, it was outside their game]], meaning no respawns.

* The ending is a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming. Flynn comes out of the helicopter, vindicated at last. He's got Dillinger's job running day to day operations, he's made peace with Lora and Alan, and they're now a PowerTrio, walking off into the sunset. It is the high point in the entire franchise. [[{{Tron20}} Because no matter what]] [[{{Film/TronLegacy}} timeline you pick]], [[HappyEndingOverride it all goes to hell from there]] and their victories and happiness will be fleeting at best. By the time the sequel(s) end, Encom is in shambles, over 2/3 of the characters are dead/de-rezzed, and the other 1/3 end up with dim survival odds or even a FateWorseThanDeath with one of the SpinOffspring left to pick up the pieces of what's left. .

* As brought up in Cracked's "Five Lighthearted Films With Dark Moral Implications," if video games are horrifying BloodSport on the other side of the screen (explicitly shown in the {{Novelization}}), then Flynn continuing to run the arcade ''after'' seeing what he did in the virtual world would be cruel at the very ''least'' and a huge case of GodIsEvil at worst. We'd better hope that arcade games are more or less like ''Disney/WreckItRalph,'' where no one ''actually'' was supposed to get hurt, and that Master Control was just perverting the whole setup.

* Minor one, but whenever a program or a user in the guise of a program expresses extreme emotions, their TronLines light up intensely. The big example, being Tron's BigNo causing his blue lines to glow brighter. The same effect happens whenever a program consumes energy from a pure source or is close to dying. Much like how us humans get tired if we are angry or upset, a program's emotional state is burning energy faster the more intense it is.
