* Ok how come Rinzler rammed his light jet into CLU's rather than [[WhyDon'tYaJustShootHim?]] And please don't say it's because he has super durable light constucts because his light cycle was destroyed by the light runner's light streak all the same. It sees like the good guys in this movie are all bent on HeroicSacrfices for no good reason.
** Opening fire on Clu's light glider gives Clu the chance to evade and return fire; the shots from the gliders are very visible and not incredibly accurate. The entire air battle is actually similar to WorldWarII aerial battles, and the aircraft and weapons behave like WWII planes, so its reasonable to assume it would take multiple hits to down Clu's glider. Ramming Clu's light glider with his own is much more likely to destroy Clu's glider before he would have a chance to begin evasive maneuvers, especially as up until Tron rams his glider, Clu has no idea that Tron has turned. It achieves both surprise and maximum force on target.\\

* For a preemptive multitasking time sharing operating system to work, there must be a hardware periodic interrupt source available to the system to pump the preemptive scheduler. The mainframe running the Grid is obviously one of such systems. The speed of this periodic interrupt source may be much slower than you think: for Linux and a lot of other UNIX-likes this interrupt occurs at 100Hz. If this is the definition of a cycle on the Grid one millicycle would mean 10 microseconds. Even back in the early 80s the processor speed are about 4.77MHz (Intel 8088 in IBM PC Model 5150) in comparison (48 clock cycles per millicycle.) For a machine built in the 90s it would have a clock speed of 100-133MHz (Am5x86-P75 1k-1.3k clock cycles per millicycle.) For a modern computer with a 3.4GHz clock speed (the Xeon E3-1231v3 on my workstation) it means 34k-38k clock cycles per millicycle.

** Flynn mentions that he came up with the basic idea behind Wi-Fi in the late 80s, but Clu's rebellion prevented him from actually implementing it. It's possible that he also came up with PDF, or something similar, and just never got the chance to patent it. And that's assuming that Encom's presence alongside ([[{{LikeRealityUnlessNoted}} presumably]]) both Microsoft and Apple's didn't make certain computer milestones occur years ahead of when they did in our world. [[note]]We ''are'' dealing with a world that developed true A.I.'s before 1982, after all.[[/note]]

*** But this is an unfortunate side effect of a nip-it-in-the-bud conclusion. Possibilities of WhatCouldHaveBeen remain unanswered, except in AlternateUniverse comics and stories. And we don't get to see defined how magic A interacts with physics

** Whether or not the rectified programs would retain their powers in the physical world is actually beside the point: Clu's scheme needs to be stopped for ''the Grid natives''' sake, too. Even if they all would've simply disintegrated upon contact with physical reality, doing no harm to the human world whatsoever, Clu's invasion would still mean that great numbers of innocent beings who'd ''been brainwashed'' into becoming his soldiers would be perishing for a tyrant's insane ambition.

*** I'm pretty sure that Clu is smart enough to know that he couldn't maintain the Flynn charade, and Sam is already putting together all the inconsistencies within minutes of meeting him. Look at the way Sam glances around the room and the hint of suspicion in his voice. Clu doesn't know enough about Flynn's life outside the Grid to keep up the charade either. He's DangerouslyGenreSavvy enough that he doesn't try a plan that's likely to run into failure. Besides, realistically, what can Sam really do for Clu that Rinzler and his thousands of rectified troops can't? Clu's ultimate goal is to draw Flynn out, so the quickest and simplest way to do that is to throw Sam onto the public gaming grid and keep trying to kill him until Flynn intervenes.

If Kevin was GenreSavvy enough to write his last will and testament before digitizing one last time (evidently, because he was expecting Clu's coup), why wasn't he genre savvy '''enough''' to a) kill the process corresponding to Clu with signal 9, so Clu would immediately cease to exist, and b) delete Clu's files, so that it wouldn't be possible to launch Clu anymore? That way, he wouldn't even have had to digitize himself!

** It's arguable that Kevin is even ''more'' badass in ''Legacy'' than he is in the original. In the original movie he had to hide and sneak around, and his powers were large-scale and overt. In the sequel, he seems even more powerful, but his abilities are far more subtle. He's not overt or flashy; he heals dying/disabled programs, he converts a program's functions without it knowing immediately, he actually ''breaks'' Clu's programming on Tron by meeting his eyes, and he wins a battle by [[AwesomenessIsAForce showing up.]] He never raises a hand against anyone (except to bop that one program on the head) and the most overt attack he launches is to pull Clu into himself to destroy him. It reminds me of a scene from the novel ''[[TheDresdenFiles Turn Coat]]'' where a Native American medicine man deflects the magical attacks with a rain dance that causes all of his foe's energy assaults to simply flow around him, like it was part of the natural order that he couldn't be harmed. Kevin Flynn's power is like that; subtle but impressively potent.

** Seeing as he ran that universe's answer to Apple or IBM, It's entirely possible that he coded a lot of them, but took others from decaying hard drives, decommissioned mainframes, obsolete servers, etc. , saving them from the "natural" death they'd have otherwise.
