* FriendlyFandoms: With ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'', naturally. Similar premise and computer-based humor. ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' fans also gravitate towards ''StarWarsRebels'' and ''Film/RogueOne'' (similar themes and DoomedByCanon), or the ''{{Voltron}}'' reboot. And due to the actors, they're also friendly with ''Film/TheBigLebowski'', ''Series/BabylonFive,'' and ''Series/ScarecrowAndMrsKing.''

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

** When Sanzaru Games developed ''Tron [=Run/r=]'', they became this with ''Franchise/SlyCooper'' fans ([[VideoGame/SlyCooperThievesInTime the fourth installment]] of which was also developed by Sanzaru)...mainly due to both franchises having no sequels to resolve their massive cliffhangers.

* FandomRivalry: With ''Film/{{Tomorrowland}}'', but mainly one-sided. This is largely to do with the fact that Disney bet the success of ''science fiction as a whole'' on that one movie. After it had a similar turn out to, ironically enough, the original ''Tron'', they cancelled all future endeavors in the genre for the foreseeable future. This meant the cancellation of several films, including an in-the-works ''Legacy'' sequel. ''Tomorrowland'' fans tend not to have any animosity towards ''Tron'' fans (assuming they aren't fans of both), but ''Tron'' fans aren't very happy that the lukewarm reception of another "theme park attraction as premise" movie didn't live up to ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'''s standard.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A common criticism of the franchise is that it neglects to explore the interesting - and somewhat disturbing - implications of the Program (and Iso) species, and their worship of humans as creator deities, as well as what humanity's responsibility to the Programs might be. The closest we get is that Flynn tried to be a benevolent deity, [[GodIsFlawed but proved inept]] in the ''Legacy'' canon, and that the villains of ''2.0's'' canon pursued the path of virtual godhood to satisfy a lust for power.

** There's a moment at the film climax where Yori's hit DespairEventHorizon, and he argues back ''"We're only defeated if we give up!"'' Now, remember that sequel? ''"Life has a way of moving you past wants and hopes."'' '''OUCH!'''
