* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The film itself came out before the PG-13 rating (1982), and while it was technically aimed at kids, it was much DarkerAndEdgier than the usual Creator/{{Disney}} fare. On its roster; brutal on-screen deaths (including a BoomHeadshot with some [[LudicrousGibs gibs]]), ElectricTorture (Clu 1.0 is tortured to death, Dumont and the other Tower Guardians come close to it), overt religious themes (more blatant than the second film's), a brief flirtation with a LoveTriangle (or ThreesomeSubtext), snarky innuendo and a ShirtlessScene... then there's the DeletedScene that was ostensibly cut for pacing, but was quite obviously sexual in nature.

* OneTrueThreesome: See ThreesomeSubtext - Flynn/Lora/Alan is a RunningGag in fandom, nicknamed "Big Dumb OT3" on {{Tumblr}}. It's a satisfactory workaround for those who ship Alan/Flynn, but don't want to discard the canonical Alan/Lora marriage.

* ComplacentGamingSyndrome: In the arcade game, there are blind spots to the AI on the tank level. The cubbyhole to the upper right lets you shoot any tank that comes near long before it gets near you, and if you move into the pink transporter ''just short'' of actually transporting, the AI can drive right past you and will not collide with you. Once you pick up those tricks, the tank level is one of the easiest in the game - all you have to do is get to those spots.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: See section under Film. The characterization being a bit thin, the characters and motivations could be read in several ways across both films.

* ThreesomeSubtext: Some people see this in spades, despite the film being a {{Disney}} flick.

* AwesomeMusic: ... Yes. This was Music/WendyCarlos (who released the first ''commercially successful'' electronic music album and the soundtrack for ''Film/AClockworkOrange''), backed up the London Symphony Orchestra. ''Lots'' of synthesizer pipe organ and CherubicChoir. And when it ''wasn't'' Wendy Carlos, it was {{Music/Journey}}.

* AwardSnub: The Academy refused to nominate ''TRON'' for Best Visual Effects, saying that [[InsaneTrollLogic they "cheated" by using computers]]. Then ''YoungSherlockHolmes'' was nominated three years later, and ''TheAbyss'' won six years later, both for computer digital effects. Now, the only winner of Best Visual Effects are CGI effects.
