[[WMG: Or maybe Beck was made from a combination of Tron and Yori's code]]

It's possible that a Tron upgrade was being worked on. And while Tron is very good at stopping threats? He can't fix the underlying breech that caused it. Yori, meanwhile, has no combat functions, but is an amazing planner and builder. So, say Alan and/or Lora get the idea to use code from both their Programs to make an upgraded security system...that turns out to favor his "mother's" mechanical talent and not his "father's" security function. The project is scrapped, but Flynn decides "Ah, heck. I'll send the little guy to The Grid." And as we all know, Flynn was horrible with explanations. Luckily, Programs don't have the same concept of family as humans. (See Clu's inability to understand why Sam was important, and [=Ma3a's=] inability to understand "father")

* In the first movie, Crom was a compound interest program, and Ram was an actuarial program. Their skills as warriors are more like soldiering in the sense of "I used to do this, now I do this - but I haven't lost that other skill." There's no canon reason to believe that additional combat subroutines couldn't be added to functioning programs, even if those abilities are later deprecated - much like Abel's.

* The "Tron" training Beck is, pardon the ActorAllusion, as much a falsehood as [[Series/BabylonFive Talia Winters]]. Tron already said that he was badly injured and left for dead, with no explanation for how he escaped Clu. Furthermore, Clu didn't so much as pause before telling Tesler that Tron was dead. By having Beck pose as Tron start a resistance movement, Clu will be able to have a young, naive, and inexperienced Program posing as a ''much'' more experienced one, rallying his enemies from hiding and making them all the easier to round up and destroy.

*** Most likely explainable as it's just been too long, and they've forgotten what he looked like.
*** The "T" on Rinzler's uniform is barely noticeable and lacks the circle around it that Tron and Beck have.

* ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' takes place during and immediately after ''VideoGame/TronEvolution'', so there's no reason not to. Sure, Beck's plot is the first and most important one in the show, but bringing in elements from that game would be fun and make for some nice continuity backfiling. And if they can get MandyMoore and Elijah Wood(!) as voice actors, it's not impossible for them to get Olivia Wilde behind a microphone.

It was pointed out on DeviantArt that the two characters have a bizarre resemblance to one another; not just in appearance, but ''attitude'' (much like the way Programs resembled their creators physically and mentally) The way Jet and Alan interact can also be creepily similar to the way Beck and Tron interact; Jet and Beck being reckless idealists, while Tron and Alan are older, cautious, and more embittered.

*** With his aerodynamics programming he could have used the blast wave together with a jet and concealed his escape.

** Unless [[spoiler:Cutler had a light jet with him...]]

[[WMG: Beck is [[SpyKids The Guy]].]]
They are both [[ActorAllusion portrayed by Elijah Wood]], and they both exist within a virtual reality. The show may have been canceled, but [[FridgeHorror we know Beck's ultimate fate thanks to ''Spy Kids 3D: Game Over]]:[[spoiler: Beck dies.

Jet would have been about seven at the time of the coup, but with two parents who pioneered modern computing, and growing up with computers all of his life, it's not a stretch to think he was starting to learn programming early. Add Kevin Flynn for a [[HonoraryUncle godfather]], and all the stories about what really goes on in {{cyberspace}} for additional measure. If Flynn was grooming Sam to join him in the Grid, he was probably grooming Jet as well. So, Jet codes up his first debugger with some (read: a lot) help from HonoraryUncle Kevin. The little boy's [[BigBrotherWorship admiration for his virtual "older brother"]] rubbed off on the Program.

* As a slight modification, there might instead be ''two'' Rinzlers, one Beck and one Tron who are interchangeable physically ''and'' mentally. The duality here ''might'' play into a sequel, if they wanted to bring back Tron and make him face Rinzler and play it for symbolism. Or, to be more general., just if they wanted to bring back Tron and keep Rinzler as a villain for some reason.

** A better case could probably be made for [[spoiler:Able]], who at least had the advantage of an offscreen fate-- He could have jumped out of the back of the crane and into the harbor before the electrical shock from the deactivated bombs set the fuel canisters off. And we didn't see ''any'' remains of his recovered by Zed and Mara in the following episode-- no disk, no code voxels, nothing. Maybe a couple guards fished him out of the water and jailed him-- l for one could easily imagine Pavel torturing [[spoiler:Able]] with the knowledge that Pavel was taking over [[spoiler:the garage]] in his absence. Being dropped into a huge engine while holding a bomb, and coming out alive... not so much.
