* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatIfGodWasOneOfUs: Thorne gets uploaded and becomes The Despot. F-Con plan on being even ''worse'' Despots. In-game, Jet doesn't get a lot of time to think over the issue, but is more a Self-Denouncer, willing to ''take'' orders from Programs, work with the ICP forces on Thorne's server instead of taking command, and tell Mercury that humans are the ones too crude to exist in the digital world. In the comics, he has a full-blown mental breakdown, but settles on a cross of Self-Denouncer, Reluctant Messiah, and Savior; he may hate being a User or some of the things he has to do, but he does feel humans have an obligation to protect and care for the Programs they create.

* 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.]]

* LegendaryInTheSequel: Both played straight and subverted. Several Programs mention Tron as a legendary hero, the focus of a KingInTheMountain style myth that states that he will return in the system's darkest hour. At least one NPC wistfully wishes he'd return to help them fight the [=DataWraiths=]. [[note]] Amusingly enough, the ''Killer App'' sequel plays this completely straight - Alan had a copy in reserve and reactivates his old System Monitor to fight a threat to Encom, leading to a BadassMindsThinkAlike team-up with Mercury! [/note]] Amusingly enough, ''no'' Program seems to remember Flynn...

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.

The dialogue between Alan and Jet also sounds suspiciously like some of the Tron and Beck dialogue in ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' Let's just say it probably wouldn't be a surprise if the ''Legacy'' writers played a few rounds of this.



* AttackReflector: Jet can turn his disc into one of these using the Power Block subroutine. It's devestating against other disc-wielding opponents.

* AlreadyDoneForYou: About 2/3rds of the way through the game, you join forces with the [=ICP=]s in an EnemyMine alliance to assault BigBad Master User Thorne's domain and take him out. By the time you get to Thorne's throne room, however, you find that the [=ICP=] Kernel has already defeated Thorne, and you end up in a boss fight against the Kernel instead in order to SaveTheVillain (who you need alive to interrogate).
