'''''TRON ''TRON 2.0''''' 0'' is a video game developed by Creator/MonolithProductions and released in 2003.



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 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.

* PsychicStrangle: The Energy Claw subroutine is a nasty cross of this and LifeDrain. Use it and the opponent visibly chokes to death...er...de-rez while it fills up your energy (ammo) bar.

* ArtifactTitle: Tron's not in the game at all. He's only mentioned in two optional conversations, the in-game emails, and [[spoiler: the unused and buggy upgrade that was scrapped on Flynn's orders]]. It only makes a little sense in that Tron and Jet technically have the same father.

* DigitizedHacker: Staple for the franchise. Thorne and the Datawraiths play out the ugly aspects of this trope with the former declaring himself a virtual god and amassing an army of corrupted followers. The latter are mercenaries under the employ of [=fCon=], out to steal everything from state secrets and bank accounts to controlling global finance markets and media outlets. That's why [=Ma3a=]resorted, in desperation, to TakesOneToKillOne and kidnapped the protagonist to help. She explicitly states that humans are "five hundred and twenty six times more powerful" inside {{Cyberspace}} than out in the analog world.

* SaveBothWorlds: [=fCon's=] plans would bring devastation to the electronic world, either via ZombieApocalypse (Thorne) or by the [=DataWraiths=] brutalizing the Programs into giving up their secrets. But since the real goal of the company is to TakeOverTheWorld by using the data they loot, it quickly becomes this.

* 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]].
