** The Datawraith's chatter. It even freaks the programs out.

** Taking out the stabilizer bits on the Datawraith cruiser. You have to hit the target ''just right'' with a disc shot, and then ''run for your life'' because it instantly spawns two Wraiths up in the carrier itself raining continuous fire on you with Mesh blasters. Worse, they are at a far distance and use their TeleportSpam to make them insanely hard to hit. (The Prankster Bit removes ''that'' issue, however.)
** 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.

'''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.\\

** Thorne breaking into the dance club can be frustrating as well, since his attacks have splash damage in a very small space ''and'' there are zealots all over the place as well AND you have to protect [=MA3A=] as well.

** The second comes when Jet and Mercury split up to cover more ground. The reformat is closing in, there's not much time. Jet, Byte, and Ma3a are on the platform leading to the exit port with nanos to spare...and [[spoiler: Mercury sacrifices herself to fend off the Z-Lots so they don't overrun the party.]]
** The next one comes on the antiquated Encom server where you realize, to your horror, that getting Ma3a to a few minutes of safety [[NiceJobBreakingItHero condemed the entire server]] [[spoiler: including I-No]] to death, and there's nothing you can do to stop it.

** It looks like everything's going to be okay. The Tron upgrade is being compiled to Ma3a, the Z-Lots have been chased off for now, and it looks like Jet's earned a breather. But then [[spoiler: Alan warns Jet ''too late'' not to compile that code, and Thorne crashes the party with an army of Z-Lots]].
** OK, Jet's putting up a good fight. He might just be able to chase [[spoiler: Thorne]] off. But that's when the code finishes compiling and [[spoiler: the corrupted Ma3a emerges ''"All Users must be terminated!"'' She attacks and wounds Thorne, ''murders'' Byte by casually backhanding him into the wall where he shatters, and only [[FightingFromTheInside fights the corruption long enough]] to tell Jet to ''run'']]

** A case could also be made for Alan and Ma3a, especially considering that Ma3a is, at least in part, a VirtualGhost of Lora.

* FollowTheLeader: While it's certainly an original game, it uses many of the same gameplay elements as ''VideoGame/HalfLife1''.



** The level of having to snipe [=ICP=]s from a tower has also caused players to rip their hair out in frustration. Your sniper rifle uses most of your energy bar at that point, there's a very limited opportinity to refuel, and if a single ICP gets to Ma3a, you have to do the whole thing over again.

** 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]].
