* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The show has very complex characters all working at cross-purposes to each other, even when they're on the same side. None of them are cut and dried. ** Beck seems the most obviously heroic character and he does seem to be a good person, but his TechnicalPacifist stance can come off as [[WideEyedIdealist unrealistic]] considering he's being groomed to lead an armed rebellion against Clu. Does he really believe the lives of every program is important enough to save, or is he [[SlidingDownTheSlipperySlope worried that he may become as bad as Tesler and Clu if he allows himself to take a life?]] ** Paige: loyal second-in-command whose traumatic past causes her to turn a blind eye toward Tesler's viciousness and instability because she believes his way is the only way to save the Grid, or a seriously deluded young woman who only serves a man she ''knows'' to be a horrible person who doesn't care about his underlings like he does for her and doesn't see the flaws in his "rescue" of her from the Isos? Was she really trying to kill the Renegade all those times or was she holding back because she subconsciously recognizes he's the only one protecting the programs Of Argon from Tesler and Pavel's excesses? Or maybe she realized that Beck was the Renegade and just couldn't bring herself to kill him, either for [[DatingCatwoman personal]] reasons or because she believed she could convince him to support the occupation, as he would be more useful joining willingly than as a rectified drone. ** Tesler: just what is his motivations? He's definitely brutal and power-hungry, yet he cares for Paige in a way that he doesn't seem to care about anyone else. Other than her fighting skills there doesn't seem to be anything else about her and there's more of a [[DaddysLittleVillain father-daughter dynamic]] than anything romantic. Is he serving Clu out of MyCountryRightOrWrong? Is he a WellIntentionedExtremist who believes Clu is doing the right thing? Is he trying to amass a power base for himself, independent of Clu? ** [[spoiler: Cyrus]]: just why did he go from [[spoiler: saving Tron's life to wanting to destroy the whole Grid?]] Again, there's so little revealed about him it's only possible to speculate. Did the [[spoiler: TronLines on his body]] have something to do with it? ** Lomox, is he TheBrute with a touch of GeniusBruiser, or a SlaveMook to Gorn who had his programming messed with [[spoiler: similar to what Pavel did to Gorn.]]

* CultClassic: Even moreso than the two {{Franchise/Tron}} films. Thanks to poor advertising, extended hiatuses, and a short run, as well as Disney XD's status as a cable channel, not many people have seen the show. However, the reception among those who have watched it is almost unanimously positive.

* JustForFun/XMeetsY: Like "''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' meets ''Anime/{{Fractale}}''" is an apt analogy. The show shares plot elements of ''Batman Beyond'' (vigilantism and training by a retired hero in hiding), the tone and light Noir sensibilities, and the sprawling urban setting. It also has the [[DesignStudentsOrgasm amazingly vibrant visual style]] of ''Fractale'' and its themes of apathy and oppression. Its setting involves the automation/computerization of almost every aspect of life, like ''Fractale'', with ([[SceneryPorn Beautiful!]]) holographic interfaces being everywhere.

* NarmCharm: Beck's early mannerisms are reminiscent of the 80s idealistic and na´ve heroic mindset which is in stark contrast to the cyberpunk atmosphere, especially to Tron's gruff demeanor. However, it's quite endearing and reminds the viewer that Beck is still young and not plagued with cynicism.

** Heck, in the intro to "Isolated", it's outright stated that she's infatuated with him.** Beck (as himself) spends half of "Welcome Home" flirting with Paige. It started as a distraction, but he keeps doing it even when he doesn't need to.
