*** For the original film, it could be a very strong form of TranslationConvention for the viewer- the characters depicted on-screen representing what the actual programs are doing in-system, but shown as the characters Flynn experienced so hte viewer can identify with what is going on. Likely anything after the original film is running on the far more advanced systems designed by Flynn in the first place.

Assume that Master Control was ''defeated,'' but not ''destroyed.'' His "[[TakeOverTheWorld take over the virtual and analog worlds]]" plans had a serious setback. It's not a total loss, though. He's still got piles of embezzled cash from the corporations he took over. He's got access to all kinds of computer networks (which will only increase with the invention of TCP/IP and modern computer networking) plenty of time, ''and'' many, many reasons to have a serious grudge against the Flynn/Baines/Bradley PowerTrio and any of their Programs. So, he waits, lies low, and gathers strength as computing technology improves. Flynn builds The Grid, and it's almost, but ''not quite'' an isolated system (after all, it could still send a signal to Alan's pager). Master Control sees an opportunity, and starts playing [[Film/TheForceAwakens Supreme Leader Snoke to Clu's "Kylo Ren"]], listening to the Administrator's frustrations, being his "[[PoisonousFriend friend]]," [[TheCorrupter making the odd suggestion on what he can do to that careless User and his precious Isos]]...(Remember, Flynn vanishes in ''both'' timelines, making the events of Legacy entirely plausible in 2.0 continuity)

Okay, now Flynn's out of the way, and Tron's not going to be a threat ([[WesternAnimation/TronUprising at least not until after Argon's destroyed]]), time to turn his attention to Alan and Lora. Arrange for an "accident" in the laser lab to take Lora out of the picture (either death or injury, depending on timeline), and keep Alan isolated in one form or another. And all that embezzled corporate cash and company secrets? Let's start making a company of his own, one specializing in "secure" offsite data storage (all the better for him to go snooping). Hire Crown, Baza, and Popoff to be the fronts there, plant Dillinger Junior and J. D. Thorne as [[TheMole moles]] inside Encom, and start setting things up for his minions to get Shiva technology and send their army into {{Cyberspace}} while Clu gears up to try and invade the analog world. Whichever of them succeeds, Master Control wins ''and'' gets revenge. Unfortunately for him, the SpinOffspring are just a little too good at screwing up well-made plans.

So, we have Clu, who wants the perfect system, and is reaching the final stage of the bigger plan. He could use some assistance, but a bunch of rectified drones and ass-kissing sycophants simply will not do. Worse, he hasn't quite worked the bugs out on his rectified {{Dragon}}. He has all of Flynn's memories up to the point of his creation. And who was Flynn's right-hand man? His {{Lancer}}? The guy who could take the big ideas and turn them into reality? ''And'' could help work the bugs out of Rinzler? And all it would take is dialing a pager? So maybe he gets Alan, sits him down at a table, discusses an offer he can't refuse, and "sweetens" the deal by showing him "Rinzler." Now, he has a User to assist him, ''and'' the best leverage possible to use against his buggy enforcer.

[[WMG: If Tron 3 ever happens, it'll take place in (or at least show) the original ENCOM system]]
Yori's actress wants to reprise her role if there's ever a sequel, plus a FreezeFrameBonus in Uprising shows that the original system is probably still online, and potentially connected to the TRON system somehow. The DVD extras also hint at someone named "MCTRL_751", who might be [[BackFromTheDead the MCP from the first movie.]] If there's any code of ''him'' left lying around, it'd be somewhere in the ENCOM system.

In ''Film/TronLegacy'', Sam is shown to be adept at breaking and entering, dangerous stunts, and fighting. It's also implied [[EmptyFridgeEmptyLife that he's inward-facing]] as a result of his abandonment issues. It's entirely likely that he ''was'' drawing on User abilities in both the Games and in other combat situations, enhancing his strength, speed, reaction time, and subconsciously "reading" his enemies for weaknesses. It also allowed him to get into places he shouldn't have been able to access - like Clu's control room.

Having lived through Master Control's reign, Yori would have seen the signs - doubly so, given [[WordOfGod Word of Lisburger]] that Programs retain some memories and psychological patterning from their Users. Also, check the first film (especially the DeletedScene), Tron is an excellent fighter, but ''everything else'' - the hideout, the planning, the logistics, the diplomacy, securing ''and'' piloting the getaway vehicle - that was totally Yori. Unfortunately, ''because'' of their Users' history, Clu would know better than to underestimate her, and she possibly outranked Tron on his shit list. Unfortunately, she's not much of a combatant ([[{{Xenafication}} though she probably picked up a few subroutines over the cycles]]), so she specializes in running things in a secret base somewhere while sending out trusted agents when combat is necessary. If Beck survives the end of ''Uprising'', it's likely Yori would have found him (and been none too amused that some barely out of beta punk ripped off her husband's ID), then started teaching him the ''rest'' of the "overthrow nutcase dictator" trade.

[[WMG: User abilities will vary depending on the person's personality and skillset (crossposted to {{Film/Tron}} and TronTwoPointOh)]]

While all digitized humans become [[PhysicalGod incredibly powerful]] inside {{cyberspace}}, and have a "base" set of abilities (higher energy storage, more durability), the rest of their powers can vary wildly and reflect who they are as a person in their own world. Flynn was a consummate manipulator (look how fast he was able to talk both his ex and his ex's fiance into a six-felony night or how loyal they are to him even 20 years after he vanishes!), so his abilities reflected that. He manipulated matter (the Recognizer), energy (draining Sark's {{Mook}}, the transport beam), and even pulled a JediMindTrick of sorts on the guard in TronLegacy.

In ''VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh'', Thorne was relatively powerless and frustrated with his life in the human world, and was vulnerable to corruption by F-con, who promised great riches and power. Once he got into the digital one, he instantly indulged both his desire for power and inner corruption by becoming "Master User Thorne," and corrupting a horde of Programs into {{PlagueZombie}}s. On the flip side of the coin, Jethro Bradley did ''everything'' he could to avoid power and his abilities centered on using what was already available (archive bins, downloads), including being able to wield corruption-based weaponry without becoming corrupt himself. The only hint we get about what Alan Bradley may have developed is seen when he is able to analyze the Wraith server's schematics and plot out a plan to take it down from the inside - then again, he wasn't in the system for very long.

Finding a badly injured Tron with the help of [[VideoGame/TronEvolution Anon]], Yori started her investigations into helping wherever she could to rescue Flynn and help them stop Clu. Naturally, this is the time of the Purge that leads to the great holocaust of Isos - Alan and Lora arrived too late to see on the Grid interface that Yori in helping Anon and Flynn save a young Quorra, was derezzed. Tron, like Flynn, went into hiding within [[WesternAnimation/TronUprising Argon City]] - but he and Flynn took some of Yori's memories with them in their solitudes until Tron was re-purposed into Rinzler around 2008.

[[WMG: Yori was sent to rescue Kevin Flynn and Tron, and was [[BusCrash derezzed]] by Clu and his Black Guards.]]
Immediately after Kevin Flynn got trapped on his new Grid by Clu; Alan Bradley and Lora Baines Bradley secretly took action after custody was awarded to them of Sam. They then attempted in secret to rescue Kevin and Tron if they can. By connecting and then disconnecting Flynn's Grid to the original ENCOM Grid, Lora's program Yori was tasked to rescue them. Connecting both Grids enabled Yori to pass through a temporary portal that took her to the new Grid that had become more dangerous. Once she arrived, Yori began her investigations while in a slightly lighter version of the costume depicted [[http://mikemaihack.deviantart.com/art/Tron-Yori-157360460 here]] - happening upon Clu's coup.
