** All programs have the same actor as their Users: Flynn and Clu, Alan and Tron, Lora and Yori...[[note]] Three actors in the franchise have had three different roles in it. Warner, as noted above played a trifecta of villains. Bridges played Flynn and both the good Clu 1.0 and the evil Clu 2.0, and Morgan played Lora, Yori, and [=Ma3a=] in VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh [[/]]

Added DiffLines:

* ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy: The original toyline and its 2002 re-release zig-zag it. On the one hand, the sculpts of Tron, Flynn, and Sark are spot on and the Light Cycles are outstandingly accurate with only a couple of minor inaccuracies. On the other hand, accessories are pure white plastic with no paint, and the TronLines are painted on as solid colors against translucent plastic, making them inverted compared to the characters they represent. Also, the circuit patterns and the sculpt of the "warrior" (one of Sark's guards) are only sort of ballparked.

Added DiffLines:

* RetroactiveRecognition: Send this one to the BabylonFive fans. The future Captain Sheridan is obvious. The future Centauri ambassador is a bit harder to spot.
** Looks like Walter Gibbs [[Film/TheLostBoys retired to Santa Clara and doesn't care much for all the damn vampires.]]
** [[Film/BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure And looks like "Mister The Kid" took up accounting.]]

* ShoutOut: A double-shot in ''Series/OnceUponATime.'' In a Season 1 episode, Regina burns down a playground, then "makes up for it" by buying her fairy-tale AgentMulder son a video game system. The kid's game of choice is ''Space Paranoids.'' Emma even looks at the game and comments "it's all in the wrist." Then, in the Season 2 episode "Welcome to Storybrooke," a hapless father and son (Kurt and Owen Flynn) wander into the cursed town. The plotline has a few creepy parallels to the [[{{Film/TronLegacy}} filmed sequel]], and Kurt shouts to his boy "find your uncle!" Given the Encom billboard they passed in the opening, the existence of Flynn's games in the OUAT universe, the surname, and the ''Legacy''-meets-Stephen King plot, and the fact that the same team of writers behind the show wrote ''{{Film/TronLegacy}}'', it's at least an educated guess said "uncle" was Kevin.

* HeyItsThatGuy
** Show this one to a ''Series/BabylonFive'' fan. Boxleitner's obvious, [[Creator/DavidWarner as is the guy after the Holy Grail]], but the future Centauri ambassador is harder to spot...
** And you might also notice that [[BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure Mr. The Kid]] plays Ram.
** Prior to ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'', in which he plays Lovejoy (the bodyguard of [[BigBad Cal]]), Creator/DavidWarner's triple-play as Dillinger, Sark and [[spoiler: the Master Control Program]] would've been considered one of his most famous roles.
** [[Film/FridayThe13thTheFinalChapter Jason Voorhees]] is one of the guards.
** Looks like Walter Gibbs [[{{Film/TheLostBoys}} retired to Santa Clara, and got really annoyed with all the damn vampires.]]



* ThrowItIn: When the prints came back from Taiwan, there were often errors in the frames that looked like flashes of light. Since it would cost ''way'' to much to have it done over, Lisberger had a EurekaMoment and realized, of ''course'' the computer world would have ''electric glitches''. So, basically, he added a sound effect and it became ''atmosphere''.
