These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: TRON 2.0
Awesome Music: Monolith's soundtrack is a love letter to Wendy Carlos, using a fair amount of techno in orchastral arrangements.
Depending on your opinion on TRON: Legacy, the fact that the Tron Legacy Code only manages to make things worse can become hilariously ironic.
Ditto with the fact that Tron himself went missing shortly after the events of the film and no one knows where the hell he is. The comic book sequel says that Flynn himself also went missing...Maybe these continuities aren't as separate as they appear?
Except for the fact that it says Flynn went insane after the events of TRON. Of course, his behavior in Betrayal and Legacy could be construed as crazy.
The Sequencer weapon itself counts as another case of Hilarious in Hindsight or Harsher in Hindsight. Jet is able to split his disc into multiple parts and fight with them. Remember who does that in the canon sequel?
A second weaponry example with the Rod Primitive (the lightcycle baton). Mercury shows Jet how it could be used as a nasty improvised shock weapon. Sam?Tried to use it asa lightsaber. Right idea, wrong implementation.
The first comes when you download an email from Alan talking about the completion of the Shiva Laser rebuild.
Lora was right about the algorithms. I wish she was here to celebrate this moment.
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 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 condemed the entire server including I-No to death, and there's nothing you can do to stop it.
Follow it up on the Internet Hub. Mercury's alive?! But she doesn't recogize Jet at all, speaks robotically, and can't understand anything other than her User's orders. Two Programs who overhear this comment that she must have been re-installed from backup.
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 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 Thorne off. But that's when the code finishes compiling and 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 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 Virtual Ghost of Lora.
That One Level: The glitching tank gauntlet on the Antiquated server. The tanks cannot be overriden or destroyed, they shoot at random, cause a lot of damage, and occasionally shoot out the very ground you're standing on.
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 level of having to snipe ICPs 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.
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 Teleport Spam to make them insanely hard to hit.
Unfortunate Implications: The franchise is pretty short of POCs and female characters (justified only somewhat by the demographics of a typical computer company). The villains? A Scary Black Man (Crown), a Bollywood Nerd (Baza, said to be from Delhi), and a French woman (Popoff). Thorne, voiced by David Scully, may or may not be African-American as well (the corruption makes it difficult to tell).
Then again, the only human protagonists are father and son, while the rest are computer programs.
