Added DiffLines:

* 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."]]

* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler: Thorne, the apparent BigBad, is killed off about 2/3rds of the way through the game (and not even by the player). The remainder of the game is spent dealing with [=fCon=] and their Datawraith scheme.]]

* EverythingIsOnline: Played mostly straight as Thorne also uses the Internet and other networking protocols to spread the virus, and F-con is about to launch a virtual server (software that acts like a server) to spread the Datawraiths. Jet is hopping between network connections to travel between systems. However, especially in the case of EN-1282, the challenge is ''getting'' it online.

* ItsUpToYou: ZigZagged. Users (humans) are almost PhysicalGods in cyberspace, and with a corruped User unleashing ZombieApocalypse all over the digital world, [=Ma3a=] figured the only thing that could stop a User was another User. Jet was also immune to Thorne's plague, whereas no Program could take a hit without becoming a ZombieInfectee. Worse, the KnightTemplar Kernel had also flagged [=Ma3a=] as an enemy, and [=Ma3a=]'s [[spoiler: agent, Mercury, is de-rezzed when the Encom server reformats]], leaving Jet as her ''only'' line of defense. Of course, by the time Jet reaches Thorne, [[spoiler: the Kernel has already mortally wounded Thorne (who was likely wounded earlier during the BarBrawl).]] And once the Datawraiths show up, it pretty much becomes "only a User can fight another User."

* LegendaryInTheSequel: Both played straight and subverted. Several Programs mention Tron as a legendary hero and at least one NPC wistfully wishes he'd return to help them fight the Datawraiths. Amusingly enough, ''no'' Program seems to remember Flynn...

* {{Ninja}}: [=fCon=]'s Datawraiths are all-but-literally computer ninja -- digitized hackers able to infiltrate any system, and appear and disappear with virtually no warning to attack the player. In fact, their animations are almost entirely copied from the ninjas in ''VideoGame/NoOneLivesForever 2''.

* 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=]?''

* PhysicalGod: Played with. Users in this setting can certainly be powerful. Even at his bare minimum, Jet is much stronger than most Programs, who have to resort to sheer numbers to wear him down. And Thorne pretty much ''does'' live down to a near-deity status as he infects hordes of minions. [[spoiler: [=Ma3a=], who is only ''part'' User, being what remains of Lora, can also unleash terrifying amounts of power given sufficient time or bad code]]. The Datawraiths (digitized mercenaries) are also the nastiest {{Mook}} enemies you can face. However, they are not as powerful as Seeker engines, or other heavy-duty security countermeasures, and [[spoiler: Alan Bradley]] has laughably low hit points once he's zapped in.

Not to mention the leads in each canon are the sons of the original ''TRON''[='=]s leads, who meet a female program who's been influenced or sent to help [[spoiler: by the lead's father]]. And the fake-out with the living virus and apparent BigBad merely being an UnwittingPawn to the truly evil people who set the whole thing up has shades of ''VideoGame/TronEvolution''. Let's just say it probably wouldn't be a surprise if the ''Legacy'' writers played a few rounds of this.

* BarBrawl: Jet and Ma3a head to the Progress Bar to get the Legacy code compiled and contact "Guest." Just when it's looking like everything's going to turn out ok, "Guest" [[spoiler: warns Jet about the bad code too late to do anything about it]], and Thorne crashes the party with a horde of Z-Lots.
* BenevolentAI: Like in the movie {{Film/Tron}}, the Programs are mostly benign or even friendly and happy to help. Even the [=ICP=] units trying to hunt Jet down aren't malicious, just mistaken and the Z-Lots are insane and under the control of a corrupted User. Ma3a, a full-blown AI, is Jet's ally and MissionControl through the game.
* BifurcatedWeapon: The Sequencer allows Jet to split his Disc into up to ''four'' parts (at the highest upgrade) and fling them at enemies ala [[{{Film/TronLegacy}} Rinzler]].

* CutscenePowerToTheMax: In-game, Mercury ''barely'' helps out, but when Jet's freed Ma3a and they're about to escape, she is shown fending off about five Z-lots in melee combat in a YouShallNotPass moment.
* CyberpunkIsTechno: Yup. The whole soundtrack. The Antiquated Server level even samples Music/WendyCarlos's original score.
* CycleOfHurting : Due to the scarcity of save checkpoints, you will be using autosave frequently. Unfortunately, it's also very easy to save right before an inevitable de-rez or other failure, meaning you have to play the whole level from the start.

* IndecisiveDeconstruction: Of the "partial" and likely the "unintentional" varieties. The implications of humans being {{PhysicalGod}}s in {{cyberspace}} are glossed over in the [[{{Film/Tron}} Tron]] [[{{Film/TronLegacy}} films]] (and ExpandedUniverse), which feature [[AIIsACrapshoot malelovent Programs]] [[RobotsEnslavingRobots enslaving other Programs]] and planning to turn the same cruelty onto the human world. To switch the storyline to where the Programs are (for the most part) well-intentioned, and for ''humans'' to exploit virutal godhood in the ''worst'' way possible certainly hits one of the central premises of the universe and inverts the source of conflict shown in the movies, but doesn't do much past that. The spin-off comics take it all the way to DeconstructorFleet, however.

The game was released to minimal advertising and press coverage, but still managed enough success for Slave Labor Graphics to release a six-part graphic novel series called ''Tron: Ghost in the Machine'' that took place six months after the game's events. Jet is shown to be traumatized from his experience in cyberspace, having nightmares and having trouble discerning those nightmares from reality. [[spoiler: The experiences are really those of an "echo" of Jet's time in the system, a Program called Jet.exe. Jet and Alan had split the echo into three different Programs to try and keep them stable, and the other two copies were trying to mislead or torture Jet.exe to keep their separate existences intact]]. There was also a sequel for the Game Boy Advance called ''Tron 2.0 Killer App'' (a title which was also used for the Xbox port of the PC game) where Tron was revived from archival storage and teamed up with Mercury to thwart a viral attack on Encom.

The game was released to minimal advertising and press coverage, but still managed enough success for Slave Labor Graphics to release a six-part graphic novel series called ''Tron: Ghost in the Machine'' that took place six months after the game's events. Jet is shown to be traumatized from his experience in cyberspace, having nightmares and having trouble discerning those nightmares from reality. [[spoiler: The experiences are really those of an "echo" of Jet's time in the system, a Program called Jet.exe. Jet and Alan had split the echo into three different Programs to try and keep keeping them stable, and the other two copies were trying to mislead or torture Jet.exe to keep their separate existences intact]]. There was also a sequel for the Game Boy Advance called ''Tron 2.0 Killer App'' (a title which was also used for the Xbox port of the PC game) where Tron was revived from archival storage and teamed up with Mercury to thwart a viral attack on Encom.

Added DiffLines:

* ItemDropMechanic: When you de-rez an enemy, it leaves behind a "core dump" containing a small EssenceDrop of energy and health as well as subroutines and permissions. Yes, even the Wraiths. [[FridgeHorror Try not to think TOO hard about the implications of this.]]

* LiteralMetaphor: Everything in the game. For example, when they plan to crash the server, they literally mean to make the server (which is represented as a boat) to literally crash into the "ground".
