* SaveTheVillain: Twice. The first time [[spoiler: with Thorne. You need him alive to interrogate him about F-con's schemes]], the second time [[spoiler: With the TerribleTrio after they were fused into a monster. You have to defeat them and kick them out of the transit beam or they will die upon arrival in analog.]]

** Played straight with Thorne's server. [[spoiler: Once he dies, the whole place goes into cascade failure.]] Justified partly because we ''are'' talking about a server heavily damaged by the corruption and because [[spoiler: Jet's fight with the Kernel took out a few major support pillars]].

* ActionGirl: Mercury. Undisputed and undefested champion of Encom's lightcycle combat arena, and appears to serve [=Ma3a=] in some kind of guard capacity. ''Killer App'' has her fighting her way through corrupted sectors and defeating a powerful virus in single combat, while explicitly showing she's ''equal to Tron'' as far as fighting ability. [[spoiler: Considering they're both Alan's Programs, this shouldn't be a surprise.]]

* MinorMajorCharacter: The F-Con CEO. He sets all this mess in motion as part of what's said to be a [[spoiler: twenty year plan to get revenge]] in addition to TakeOverTheWorld, but does little directly. It's the TerribleTrio doing the legwork.

It is a sequel to the 1982 movie ''Film/{{Tron}}''; the player takes the role of Jethro "Jet" Bradley, son of the film's characters Alan and Lora. Jet is swiftly summoned into the digital world of Encom's computer network to protect it, his father, and the secrets of the digitizer technology from both a mysteriously powerful virus corrupting everything in its path and a group of {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s from the company Future Control Industries ("[=fCon=]") staging a hostile takeover.

* HijackedByGanon: Thorne was being used by F-con. F-con's day to day operations are run by Seth Crown. But Crown's boss? [[spoiler: ''Heavily'' implied to be Edward Dillinger, though a resurrected Master Control is also plausible.]]

[[spoiler: ''Heavily'' implied to be Edward Dillinger, though a resurrected Master Control is also plausible.]]]] It shows up again in the ''Killer App'' sequel as the malicious User behind the problem [[spoiler: is voiced by Creator/CoreyBurton doing the same Creator/DavidWarner impression he pulled later for VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII]]

* UnfinishedUntestedUsedAnyway: Thorne saw Alan using the laser, but was warned that the connection algorithms were not completely tested. Thorne didn't buy it and told F-Con to use the laser anyway. Alan Bradley ''does not bluff'' when it comes to the need for safety measures as Thorne found out the hard way. Alan was still running the tests when F-Con kidnapped him, meaning [=Ma3a=] invoked this trope herself when zapping in Jet. F-Con then subverts it by [[spoiler: making Alan the guinea pig for the laser to test it before sending in the wraiths, since that will get rid of him either way.]]

* GoodColorsEvilColors: {{Exaggerated}} and [[Justified Trope Justified]] in the ''TRON'' universe. The color and pattern of a Program's circuits indicate their loyalties and their function, with each faction having their own color ([[BlueIsHeroic Blue for Encom]], red for ICP forces, purple for F-Con, SicklyGreenGlow for Thorne and his viral army). You have to take note of ''both'' to keep from accidentally killing civilians.

* NoEnding: The ending leaves more open than it solves. [[spoiler:Sure, Thorne's dead, the virus was halted, Alan and Jet make it back to the analog world, and it seems their rocky relationship is a bit smoother now. Yes, [=Ma3a=] is uploaded out of danger and Mercury appears to have escaped.]] However, [[spoiler: The F-con CEO / Dillinger/ (or maybe even Master Control Program 2.0)]] is still operating with impunity, and Alan cuts him off in mid-threat. Furthermore, [[spoiler: Crown, Popoff, and Baza are trapped on a hard disk, and Alan isn't in any hurry to free them]]. And what about the F-Con buyout of Encom, and ''all those [=[=DataWraiths=]=]?''

* CassandraTruth: When captured by the Kernel's ICP forces (Intrusion Countermeasure Programs), Jet answers everything in the interrogation truthfully. He was born in 1982, and he doesn't have a User - he ''is'' a User. The Kernel doesn't buy any of it and Jet narrowly escapes summary execution. Mercury even questions his statement, and Byte says it's {{Justified}} by saying ICP should stand for [[DumbMuscle "incompetent, confused Programs."]]

* ColourCodedArmies: Every faction gets its own colour, the red and blue of the original film being supplemented with green for infected, viral programs and sectors, gold for really ancient systems, and purple for the BigBad. {{Exaggerated}} and {{Justified}} tropes in the universe's settings. The color and pattern of Program circuitry are important identifiers. Just be careful to take notice of ''both'' to avoid shooting helpless civilians.
