** F-Con, a rival company, is trying to take over Encom to obtain the digitizer tech. Their CEO says in an email how he has been looking forward to this for twenty-plus years\\
'''You'd Expect''': F-Con to wait for the merger to quietly go through, the new bosses to force Alan Bradley into early retirement (with a generous severance package), and quietly appropriate the AI [=Ma3a=] and the Shiva Mark II laser as company property, launching the Datawraith project beneath everyone's notice.\\
'''Or''' If that was not an option, they would use their mole, Thorne, to copy and steal the files and smuggle them back to F-Con headquarters where they could again, quietly work on it.\\
'''Or''': If Alan ''really'' made a stink about the merger and handing over his life's work, arrange for him to "[[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident disappear]]" from his home or even the Encom parking garage, maybe with some appropriate steps to make it look like he was a despondent, aging man who had [[DrivenToSuicide lost his beloved wife, his close friend, was estranged from his son, and had a career go down in flames]]. \\
''Or'': If they really needed the man himself alive, arrange the kidnapping and staged suicide, but make sure to keep a ''pioneer of AI technology and computer security'' (as in ''the guy who programmed Tron and [=Ma3a=]'') away from any computer equipment, electronics, or even a telephone jack and electrical outlet. \\
'''Instead''': They arrange for a couple of goons to march into Encom in the middle of the workday, brazenly kidnap Mr. Bradley while he is on the phone with his son, threaten his life repeatedly, and [[LockingMacGyverInTheStoreCupboard lock said computing pioneer in a room full of cast off computer parts with a working power outlet and telephone line]].
** Speaking of Thorne, he was F-con's [[TheMole mole]] inside Encom for several months, observing the laser tests and sending the results back to F-Con. He heard Alan repeatedly talk about how the laser wasn't ready to digitize humans and he had ''almost'', but not quite, worked the bugs out just yet on the safety features.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Thorne and F-Con to run some tests of their own to discern if that was truly the case or if Alan was stalling for time. You'd also expect F-Con to test this with something other than a human being right off the bat. \\
'''Instead''': Assuming Alan was just stalling, F-Con bypasses all safeties and shoots Thorne in there. Alan was ''not'' joking about those safeties. Thorne becomes a living computer virus ''they'' can't even control.
** Jet obtains the [[NamesTheSame Tron Legacy]] code ([[{{Film/TronLegacy}} no relation]]) in the belief it will protect [=Ma3a=] from tampering, but he also finds several emails on the old Encom mainframe indicating that the code wasn't completed and has serious bugs. \\
'''You'd Expect''': Him to point these out to [=Ma3a=] and have second thoughts about installing something to her code that may not be compatible. \\
'''Or''': Wait until he could contact "Guest" and ask about the code.\\
'''Instead''': He and [=Ma3a=] find a compiler living on the Internet, ''he volunteers'' to try compiling it to himself (dude, you're a User, that alone should make it a dodgy idea). [=Ma3a=] steps in and says it's meant to protect her from tampering. As she is being compiled, Jet gets a warning from his dad ''not'' to compile it. As soon as the process completes, [=Ma3a=] goes AxCrazy from the buggy code, kills Byte, wounds Thorne, and tries to kill Jet, who can only get on a lightcycle and flee in terror.

* PortingDisaster: The Steam release has a bug that causes an infinite installation loop. Luckily, [[http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Tron_2.0#Infinite_Install_Loop there are fixes for it]].

* On a meta level; [[OrwellianRetcon Disney deciding to make the game]] [[CanonDiscontinuity and its related material non-canon]] (and the fanbase pretty much ignoring the dictate as an inverse of FanonDiscontinuity) is happening again with the StarWarsExpandedUniverse.

* ContestedSequel: Despite being given the OrwellianRetcon treatment from {{Disney}}, there are still a handful of fans who prefer this sequel to ''Film/TronLegacy'', or who say [[TakeAThirdOption both sequels]] [[PatchworkFic could fit in the same continuity]] by making some minor changes to both canons.

** The first time you engage a Seeker is easy enough, right? The data worm is weakened, one wave of three Resource Hogs appears between "phases" of the fight, piece-'o-cake even if you are down to using Primitive Disc. But then you have to sink a ship, but before that you got to fight a fully powered Seeker while DataWraiths spawns nonstop, and even at full power all you do is scratch the Seeker to death. Oh, and be mindful that being anywhere near a Seeker is instant de-resolution.
** Light Cycle Sequences. No quick-saving allowed, AI is just too good at it and has frame-precise controls.
