[[folder:Sam Flynn]]
[[caption-width-right:300:"[[IndyPloy I'm a user. I'll improvise.]]"]]
* ActionSurvivor: When he first enters The Grid.
* BadassBiker: To the point that he is a lot more comfortable in [[GladiatorGames the Games]] when he realizes they involve [[CoolBike Light Cycles]].
-->'''Sam:''' Now ''this,'' I can do!
* BatmanGambit: In his second fight with Rinzler, he opens with the same exact attack as the first fight, expecting Rinzler to perform the same dodge. Unbeknownst to Rinzler, Sam had both his own disc and his father's, and when he was forced to defend the second disc instead of his usual dodge, Quorra was able to kick him off the tower.
* BloodlessCarnage: Averted. When Rinzler hits him with a disc, Sam bleeds and Rinzler recognizes him as a User.
* BoringButPractical: He's not capable of the acrobatics that Rinzler is, nor is his disk flinging as intricate as other programs. However, his direct style is simple and effective.
* ChangingOfTheGuard: Takes over Encom...or at least becomes the public ''face'' of Encom at the end of the film.
%%* ChickMagnet
* CollapsibleHelmet: Standard for all programs.
* DeadlyDisc: Ditto.
* FightsLikeANormal: {{Justified}}. Yes, he's a User, but he has no idea what he's capable of inside {{cyberspace}} and never really got a chance to find out.
* HeroesLoveDogs: He gives his bulldog an entire burger. Best. Owner. Ever.
* IndyPloy: He isn't really big on making plans. In his own words, "I'm a user. I'll improvise."
* ManChild: He acts more like a rebellious teenager seeking thrills than the 27 year old that he is. At the end of the movie, [[spoiler: he [[CharacterDevelopment decides to start working at Encom]].]]
* MundaneUtility: Apparently, he's the only one that realizes that his father's disc, which is essentially the MacGuffin of the entire film, can actually be used in combat like any other disc.
%%* NerdsAreSexy
%%* ParentalAbandonment
* PlayfulHacker: Best seen when he hacks into Encom to give the latest operating system to the public for free and [[{{Troll}} interrupts the board meeting with a video of his dog]].
* RichIdiotWithNoDayJob: Sam might have the most shares of Encom, but he's a college dropout with no job and no social connections outside Alan Bradley and his rescue dog Marv.
* ShirtlessScene: The stripping off of his old clothes by Gem and her colleagues. However, judging from how this is a different system from the one in the original film, that might in fact be necessary to get his new attire.
* SpinOffspring: Kevin's son.
* UnskilledButStrong: He's never seen doing the things that make Users {{Physical God}}s, which is unusual given that he's an accomplished hacker and very tech savvy. He's a good fighter though, and naturally a lot tougher than most programs. Not to mention that most of his handicap is due to being completely unfamiliar with the system; later on in the movie he is able to fight Rinzler on equal footing, although the fight is quickly interrupted.
* WrongGenreSavvy: He mistakes a Lightcycle baton for a [[Franchise/StarWars lightsaber]], at first.

[[folder:Kevin Flynn]]
[[caption-width-right:300:"In there is our destiny!"]]

The father of Sam, and the creator of another Grid.

* TheAtoner: He admits he royally screwed up as far as The Grid is concerned, and as far as his involuntary abandonment of Sam [[spoiler: and being unable to stop the slaughter of Quorra's people]], and decides to [[spoiler: Make a HeroicSacrifice to get them to safety, destroying himself, Clu, and probably a good chunk of what's left of The Grid]].
* AwesomenessIsAForce: Capable of turning the tide in a battle by simply [[BigDamnHeroes showing up and touching the floor.]] As one person on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yY5ecnUA5dc#t=01m59s Youtube]] said:
-->'''''The Admin''''' ''has logged in.''
* BackgroundHalo: When meditating on the Solar-Sailer, the light behind him gives him a halo.
%%* BadassBeard
%%* BadassGrandpa
%%* BadassLongcoat
%%* BadassLongRobe
* BadassPacifist: Kevin is [[PhysicalGod so powerful]] that he usually wins without having to raise a hand against anyone. Subverted with [[spoiler: Quorra's]] rescue: She states that she closed her eyes, surrounded by Clu's Black Guards, waiting for the end... and when she opened them, the guards were just... gone.
%%* BigGood
%%* ChekhovMIA
%%* CoolOldGuy
%%* DisappearedDad
* GodInHumanForm: More pronounced, but not as shown as in [[Film/{{Tron}} the original film]].
%%* GodIsFlawed:
* GodIsGood: The creator and BigGood of the Grid.
* GovernmentInExile: More like ''God'' in exile, after Clu's rebellion.
* GrandpaGod: Due to spending [[http://tron.wikia.com/wiki/Cycle the Tron universe equivalent]] to one thousand years on the Grid.
%%* HermitGuru
* InTheHood: Wears a cloak to disguise himself on the streets of TRON City as he goes to the End of Line club.
* LookOnMyWorksYeMightyAndDespair: He was proud of The Grid, even to the point of calling it "[his] Rome" in the Betrayal comic, and boasting about how it would change "science, medicine, religion" in the analog world, but he neglected the problems the system had until it was too late and Clu took matters into his own hands.
* LotusPosition: In his own words, he knocks on the sky and listens to the sound.
* TheMaker: Of the entirety of the new Grid. Inverted with the [=ISOs=], which the ''Grid'' created.
* MyGreatestFailure: Clu. "He's ''me''. I screwed it up!"
* OlderAndWiser: Or at least older and ''very'' much had the ego smacked out of him.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Mentally, not physically.
* PhysicalGod: He ''created'' The Grid.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: If his years gone are counted in Grid time, he's over one thousand.
* ShoutOut: To Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original trilogy (Episodes IV-VI) of ''Franchise/StarWars'' with the beard, cloak, hideout, hermit nature, and regret. Though a little bit of [[Film/TheBigLebowski The Dude]] slips in as well.
* ShipperOnDeck: To Sam and Quorra, if the smile he gives when they talk is a sign.
* StopWorshippingMe: Subverted. By the time of the film, he's long since accepted that the Programs are gonna worship him, whether he likes it or not.

[[folder:Alan Bradley]]
[[caption-width-right:300:[[CallToAdventure "I got a page last night... Page came from your dad's office at the arcade."]]]]
Coming back from the original ''Film/{{Tron}}'', Alan Bradley is revealed to be one of Kevin Flynn's closest friends and still in the employ of ENCOM. According to the ENCOM website, Alan holds the position of Executive Consultant, and later [[spoiler: promoted to Chairman of the Board by Sam.]] He was the man who sent Sam to Flynn's Arcade to investigate a message, starting the search again...

* BatmanGambit: Possibly. That pager went off ''well'' before Sam's annual prank, but Alan waited until after the prank was over ,and seemed to be choosing his words specifically to goad Sam into investigating the arcade.
* TheChessmaster: A mild case of it. In the first film, he'd been building Tron for ''months'' beneath the notice of Dillinger and Master Control. The alternate reality game establishes that he's ''leading'' the Flynn Lives movement under the name [=ISOLated=] Thinker. He's also been minding the store as best he can at Encom for when Sam finally gets his act together, and looking the other way on the stunts. The speech with the pager and the fact he held off until ''after'' the prank was likely an attempt at a BatmanGambit, and "The Next Day" [[spoiler: shows him going over a {{Plan}} with Roy Kleinburg about the company's future without Sam present.]]
** ChessmasterSidekick: He was Kevin Flynn's right hand man, helping turn the big, crazy ideas into workable technological progress, and acting as CloudcuckoolandersMinder when Kevin's fanciful ideas got a little ''too'' out there. {{Deconstructed}} as he withered when put in the actual CEO seat after Kevin's disappearence, but {{Reconstructed}} in "The Next Day," when he was shown talking to Roy and planning Encom's future [[spoiler: Sam is going to be mostly a figurehead. Alan's the one calling the ''real'' shots.]]
* CoolOldGuy: Staid corporate mascot and punchline by day...secret identity of a hacktivist as "[=IsoLATED=] Thinker," helping to run the Flynn Lives group under everyone's nose.
* HappilyMarried: To Lora (who was PutOnABus), per the ARG (No word on if there's a version of [[{{Tron20}} Jet]] in this timeline, though)
* TheMentor: Arguably, since he became Sam's surrogate father during Kevin's disappearance.
* OnlySaneMan: He's the only one on the board who still believes in Flynn's (and Walter Gibbs's) vision for the company.
* ThePeterPrinciple: According to [[AllThereInTheManual supporting materials]] including the AlternateRealityGame, he was made CEO of Encom after Kevin's disappearance, and was later forced to resign as a result of the company's decline in the late '80s. Consider that he's a computer programmer, not necessarily a businessman by trade.
* PapaWolf: During the introduction, when the reporters try to swarm the young Sam, we see Alan turn around, looking ''furious''.
* ParentalSubstitute: Alan took over as father figure to Sam after Kevin disappears. In one of the clips in the news montage on Kevin's disappearance, it looks like he's about to go PapaWolf on some hounding reporters harassing young Sam.
* PromotionToParent: Acted as a father figure to Sam Flynn after Kevin's disappearance. But at the start of the movie, their relationship seems to be a bit strained.
* SpecsOfAwesome: Still has the glasses.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Flynn. He still has a ''pager'', even after all these years, because Flynn told him to hold onto it so he could contact him at anytime.

[[folder:Ed Dillinger, Jr.]]
%%* TheCameo
%%* ContinuityCameo
%%* FourEyesZeroSoul
* HypercompetentSidekick: To the CorruptCorporateExecutive Mackey. Also, in the bonus material Flynn Lives, Alan mentions that "the kid earned his place." After all, it must not be easy to rise in a company where your father was publically revealed to be a fraud.
* OverlordJr: In a sense, seeing as he's the son of [[Film/{{Tron}} Ed Dillinger]], but he's really just a ContinuityCameo and isn't really in charge at all. Of course, [[spoiler: the coda shows he's definitely up to ''something'' and conspiring with his father (and/or Master Control 2.0). And he is shown phoning ''somebody'' after the launch of [=EncomOS=] 12 goes pear-shaped.]]

[[folder:Richard Mackey]]
%%* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* PointyHairedBoss: He can certainly go on at length about buying and selling stock around the world, but can't even come up with a convincing line of bull to justify the high cost of their latest OS, or know much about it at all.


[[caption-width-right:280:"You could say I was a rescue."]]
%%* AcePilot
%%* ActionGirl
* BadassAdorable: Although she knows how to kick ass, she's naive and innocent, much like a little girl.
* BadassBiker: In the music video for the Music/DaftPunk soundtrack tune "Derezzed."
* BadassBookworm: This badass sure loves her Creator/JulesVerne novels, as well as Dostoevsky, Tolstoy and Buddhist scriptures.
* BadassDriver: Her [[CoolCar Light Runner]] skills save Sam's life, though she does, admittedly, end up coming across to him as someone who DrivesLikeCrazy.
* BadassInDistress: [[spoiler:Captured by Clu partway into the film.]]
* CollapsibleHelmet: Only shown in the [[BigDamnHeroes Grid rescue]].
* DeadlyDisc: In conjunction below; if you notice, she uses hers more defensively and doesn't hurl it around like everyone else.
* DualWielding: With her Identity Disc and a LaserBlade, in a sword and shield-like form in [[spoiler:the battle in the End of Line Club]].
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Sam is ''terrified'' by Quorra's reckless off-road driving during their escape.
* FashionableAsymmetry: [[spoiler:Perhaps it has something to do with her being an ISO.]]
%%* GenkiGirl
* GrapplingHookPistol: Uses the "Cable" function of her Baton once to [[spoiler:swing under the bridge to the Portal and get between Clu and the Flynns]].
* InstantExpert: On her first try, she basically becomes an AcePilot, complete with kills and complex maneuvers. Justified, due to her spending a millennium as Kevin Flynn's apprentice.
* JeanneDArchetype: She's an ActionGirl guided by a sort of "higher power." Her somewhat androgynous appearance reinforces this comparison.
* LaserBlade: One of the rare programs in ''Legacy'' to use the "Light Sword" function of a [[MagicTool baton]].
* MagicTool: Although many a program have them, Quorra uses her [[http://tron.wikia.com/wiki/Baton Baton]] for more than many of them.
* LastOfHerKind: [[spoiler:Quorra's the last [=ISO=] after the Great Purge.]]
* LivingMacGuffin: [[spoiler:Kevin wants to get her off the Grid so that she can change the outside world. Clu wants her for unspecified reasons.]]
* MotorcycleJousting: Partakes in the music video for the soundtrack tune "Derezzed."
* MyNaymeIs: Her name is pronounced exactly like "Cora".
* ReverseGrip: At times.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: OliviaWilde [[DoingItForTheArt went out of her way]] to ensure that her character didn't get saddled with this. We see the beginnings of an attraction between Sam and Quorra once they get to know each other a bit better on the Solar Sailer, which is probably a more natural true-to-life progression than this trope: they only recently met.
%%* ScifiBobHaircut
* ShesGotLegs: To reiterate, there's the scene midway through during the explanation of how Kevin got stuck on the Grid. Whenever it cuts to Quorra, we inexplicably get a full shot that does nothing but emphasize this.
* SkilledButNaive: She knows her combat skills, but she knows almost nothing about the real world. Similarly, she is very well read, but appears to have missed the memo that says Jules Verne died a century ago. Possibly justified as it's hinted that Flynn may not be aware that she dabbles in fantasy besides the deep philosophical readings he's set out for her, therefore she might not have been able to ask him. Plus, it is strongly implied that most programs on the Grid do not have access to things like the Internet.
%%* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman

[[caption-width-right:300:[[IronicEcho "Out there is our destiny!"]]]]

* AffablyEvil: Polite and charismatic, but ruthless.
* AntiMutiny: As Clu himself notes, he has never strayed from what Flynn created him for. It's ''Flynn'' that changed directions, leaving Clu with no purpose.
* AntiVillain: According to Kevin Flynn, anyway. He's only created the {{dystopia}} of the film because that is precisely what he was programmed to do. He simply cannot contemplate Kevin's change in thought. Also, it is revealed that all he wants is his Creator's approval. In the final battle, he has Kevin Flynn at his mercy but doesn't kill him.
* AscendedExtra: From the minor character Clu in ''Film/{{Tron}}''. Also in-universe, in that he was a hacker program meant to find things in the ENCOM server in his first incarnation, whereas his second incarnation was one of the three people in charge of the Grid in version two, and eventually the sole leader.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He was created to be a substitute for the Grid's version of ''God.'' He takes a direct hit from an Identity Disc without flinching. Pretty much nothing is able to hurt him, let alone kill him. In a very literal way: Clu has all the authority that Kevin Flynn does, which is why he gets stronger the more Kevin uses his User powers.
* BigBad: To the point where he's ''also'' an antagonist in ''VideoGame/TronEvolution'' and ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' (though only as a GreaterScopeVillain).
* BlofeldPloy: When he [[spoiler:seems like he's going to derez Rinzler, only to do it to Jarvis instead]].
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: He acts the way he does because he believes it is how he should fulfill his programs. Bonus points for living in a world where one's morality is shown by being blue or orange. Brilliant in that he's ''yellow'', symbolizing how he's not simply good or evil, just trying to fulfill his "father's" wishes.
* ChronicVillainy: He is a program, so he's basically ''obliged'' to pursue his quest for perfection, even if it implies genocide.
* CollapsibleHelmet: He wears one that initially hides his appearance from Sam.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: So freaking much. During the Games, he pits Sam Flynn, an inexperienced user, against Rinzler, aka freaking [[spoiler:TRON. As in, the guy who took down Sark, effortlessly crushed four of Clu's EliteMooks, and helped create the new Grid]]. He also modded his CoolBike so that it is faster than others of its type.
* TheComputerIsYourFriend: Despite the fact that he goes genocidal against the [=ISOs=] and rules the grid with an iron fist inside an iron glove, Clu isn't a rogue A.I. at all. He is, in fact, working [[AntiMutiny exactly as Flynn intended]] [[GoneHorriblyRight at the moment he created him]]. Flynn's attitude towards Clu is that of a remorseful father, not of one who created a monster, admitting that Clu's obsession with order was a reflection of his own misunderstanding of the concept of a "perfect system" - that User-generated programs became obsolete once the [=ISOs=] appeared. Flynn himself instantly recognized that the [=ISOs=] were superior to anything he or any User could create, but failed to realize that Clu, in turn, would see the [=ISOs=] as a threat to programs like himself for the exact same reason.
%%* ContemplativeBoss
* CoolBike: A 5th Generation Lightcycle, used in the Game Grid. His is explicitly stated to be faster than the other combatants'.
* CoolPlane: A Light Jet, which he generates, rather than keeping generated, twice over the course of a single scene.
* TheCorrupter: Since he can't create programs, he gets new recruits for his armies by "rectifying" them and removing their free will. [[spoiler:He even manages to corrupt Tron, now known as Rinzler]].
* CreativeSterility: Cannot make new programs, so he must enslave them instead.
%%* DeadlyDisc
* DimensionLord: He rules the Grid and wants to invade Earth.
* DramaticUnmask: He's revealed to look exactly like Kevin Flynn, causing Sam to mistake him for his father.
%%* EnemyWithout
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: At the climax, the otherwise omniscent Clu cannot understand why his creator would sacrifice himself to save Sam.
-->'''Clu:''' WHY?
-->'''Kevin:''' He's my son.
* EvilMeScaresMe: Kevin Flynn created Clu in his own image.
* TheEvilsOfFreeWill: Specifically, free will runs counter to maintaining order in a perfect system.
%%* FaceHeelTurn
* FantasticRacism: If there's one thing Clu hates, it's imperfection. And boy, are [=ISO=]s and Users anything ''but'' perfect.
* FascistButInefficient: Subverted. He rules with an iron fist (and there's that little problem of the [=ISO=] genocide), yet the Grid seems to work rather good.
* FreudianExcuse: His relationship with [[WellDoneSonGuy his creator]] is... complex.
--> '''Clu:''' You promised we would change the world! ''Together!''
* FromNobodyToNightmare: In the 1982 installment, the first version of Clu was best known for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQwKV7lCzEI shrieking upon crashing his tank]]. 28 years later, this new, upgraded Program betrays Kevin Flynn and becomes one of the most evil villains in Disney history.
* HitlerCam: For his ''Film/TriumphOfTheWill''-esque speech.
* KnightTemplar: He honestly want to create a perfect system.
* LargeHam: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTlktIzcmPc&feature=related As seen in his speech to his soldiers]].
* LegacyCharacter: The original Clu was destroyed by the MCP in the [[Film/{{Tron}} original film]]. This Clu is an upgraded version that Flynn created to help him supervise the Grid.
* MagicTool: He uses his own Baton for a number of applications.
%%* MoralSociopathy
%%* ANaziByAnyOtherName
* NeatFreak: He was upset by the slightest lack of order in Flynn's apartment. Comes with [[ThePerfectionist the program]].
* NoSell: Clu shrugs off a direct hit from a disc.
* ObliviouslyEvil: Being programmed to bring perfection, he doesn't see his actions as evil.
* ThePerfectionist: Unfortunately, his idea of "perfection" is permanently stuck at Flynn's at the time of his creation. Flynn explains that PerfectionIsImpossible, and yet right in front of us all the time.
%%* PermaStubble
* APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil: Kevin programmed him for good.
* PuttingOnTheReich: Seriously, his speech was one heck of a [[NightmareFuel terrifying tribute]] to [[Film/TriumphOfTheWill Leni Riefenstahl's movies]]. Not to mention [[EliteMooks the Black Guards]].
* RageAgainstTheHeavens: He loves Flynn like a son to his father, but hates him for essentially betraying him and making him obsolete.
* SlouchOfVillainy: Mirrors Flynn's from the first film.
* TheSuperego: He acts like one for the whole Grid. More specifically, he acts like a very dysfunctional super-ego, obsessed with perfection at the expense of flexibility.
* SwordDrag: With his DeadlyDisc.
%%* TotalitarianUtilitarian
* TragicVillain: He simply cannot realize what his quest for perfection means for his victims. He's sincerely distraught when Kevin Flynn doesn't agree with him.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: He really just interpreted Kevin's orders wrong.
* UncannyValley: InvokedTrope.
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: Since his moral compass is based on what is in favor or against the perfect system, even genocide is justified.
* VillainousBreakdown: Experiences this twice; first when he's searching Flynn's house, and the second when his creator tells him that perfection is impossible.
* VisionaryVillain: Wants to create the perfect system... because that was the first order Kevin Flynn gave him upon his creation.
* ZerothLawRebellion: What led to his AntiMutiny.

->[[spoiler:"[[CallBack I]] [[HeelFaceTurn fight]] [[RammingAlwaysWorks for]] [[HesBack the]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Users]]."]]

* AmbiguousSituation: Due to the details of the prequel ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'', a strong minority of viewers believe that Rinzler's identity [[spoiler:is Beck, the protagonist of that series, instead of Tron as implied in ''Legacy''. The idea stems from the fact that the writers and artists seem to have designed Beck to be what is essentially a non-evil Rinzler in appearance and fighting style, and a major plot point is that he is conditioned to be a replacement Tron.]]
* BifurcatedWeapon: His Identity Disc(s). Complete with a hilarious jab from Sam.

%%* BlackKnight
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Was once Tron until Clu corrupted him.]]
* CallBack: [[spoiler:"I fight for the Users!", of course. In addition, Rinzler's introduction features him in a four-sided Disc Wars court, just as Tron was introduced fighting a four-on-one game in the original.]]
* CatchPhrase: Subverted. [[spoiler:Being Tron, his CatchPhrase is "I fight for the Users!" However, being BrainwashedAndCrazy for almost the entire movie, he only says it once.]]
* CrazyPrepared: Always seems to have a backup of everything at hand, whether it's a disc, lightcycle, or aircraft. If one vehicle gets destroyed while he's riding it, he will summon another one in midair and hit the ground running like nothing ever happened.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Actually, Clu is, but his tactics during the fight with Sam mirrors video game FakeDifficulty (changing the rules to Rinzler's advantage).
* DarthVaderClone: Ticks just about every box. Nigh-unstoppable Dragon who dresses all in black, wears a face-concealing mask, is associated with an ominous noise, [[spoiler: and turns out to be a fallen hero.]]

In that flashback, Tron uses two discs at once, just as Rinzler does (they even have a scene where he specifically looks at the discs in his hands as if to highlight this). Secondly, if you listen very carefully straight after the camera pans from Clu smashing the disc onto Tron, you can hear Rinzler's signature sound.]]

* LightningBruiser: Unlike Clu, who just simply [[NoSell shrugs off hits]], Rinzler artfully dodges out of the way. And then is on you a heartbeat later, going ginsu on you with his [[DualWielding dual]] [[DeadlyDisc discs]].
* RestrainingBolt: [[spoiler:Immediately ceases his attack on Sam when he sees him bleed. Throughout the film, he seems to target everyone ''but'' Sam, since his original core program was designed to fight ''for'' the Users.]]
* SuddenSequelHeelSyndrome: [[spoiler:Although, admittedly, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy not by choice]].]]
* ThreeLawsCompliant: [[spoiler:''Very'' tragically so. First law: He sacrfices himself to let Flynn Sr. escape and stops dead in the arena once he realizes Sam's a User. Second Law: He snapped out of it when he got a good look at Flynn and heard his User friend's dismay. Third law: He did fight to protect his own existence - ''until'' Users were in danger, then he made a suicidal charge on Clu.]]
