* BifurcatedWeapon: His Identity Disc(s). Complete with a hilarious jab from Sam.

* BifurcatedWeapon: His Rinzler's Identity Disc(s).Disc can split into two separate ones. Complete with a hilarious jab from Sam.



* DanceBattler: Courtesy of Anis Cheurfa, Rinzler is the only one who fights with incorporated acrobatics and dance choreography.



* DeadlyDisc: Two at once.

to:

* DeadlyDisc: Two at once.Like other Programs and Users, he can use his Identity Disc as a weapon. But unlike everyone else, Rinzler can wield two instead of one.



* 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]].

* [[spoiler: ReforgedIntoAMinion: He evaded capture after the Coup, started a rebellion in [[{{WesternAnimation/TronUprising}} Argon City]], [[ShoottheShaggyDog which was leveled in retaliation. Sometime after that, he was re-captured, broken, and turned into a rectified drone.]] ]]

Added DiffLines:

* BeneathNotice: Still his standard operating procedure. He stoically puts up with being treated as a mascot and a joke by the Encom board, but uses it as a chance to spy on their actions and leak it to the hacktivists in the Flynn Lives movement.

Added DiffLines:

* UnfitForGreatness: He had the best of intentions, and buckets of charisma and genius, but the ExpandedUniverse (especially the ''Betrayal'' comic) show that he was stupidly overconfident, way too distracted to focus on any one of his responsibilities adequately, too arrogant to ask for help, unwilling to see the reality of Encom and The Grid's situations, treated his allies shabbily, and those reckless mistakes compounded in a way that ''everyone'' suffered for.

Added DiffLines:

* FamousLastWords: "Goodbye, kiddo." [[spoiler:Said just before he assimilates Clu to get Sam and Quorra to safety in the real world]].


* 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. However, being voiced by Bruce Boxleitner and having the exact same markings as Tron at least point to his being Tron as the original intent when the movie was written.]]
** Hell, the design for Beck is purely a RuleOfCool, and ultimately does not support the theory. Especially since Kevin Flynn would recognize his programs without fail. More importantly the above reference to Rinzler being voiced by Bruce. That pretty much subverts the AmbiguousSituation entirely.

* SaveYourDeity: [[spoiler: It starts with a HeroicSacrifice to get Flynn to safety. And when he breaks the brainwashing, the suicidal charge at Clu prevents Clu from finishing off the Users and Iso in the stolen jet.]]



* ThreeLawsCompliant: [[spoiler:''Very'' tragically so. First law: He sacrifices 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 BrainwashedAndCrazy when he got a good look at Flynn and heard his User friend's dismay, which could be broadly interpreted as an order. Third law: He did fight to protect his own existence - ''until'' Users were in danger, then he made a suicidal charge on Clu.]]

* RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: [[spoiler:It wasn't the run-of-the-mill poisoned drink that killed him, however. More like his own belief in his worth to Clu being grossly overestimated.]]

* FaceHeelTurn: Never quite as nice as his polite demeanor belies, but at least wanted the Grid to be independent and ISOs to be free when he is first met in ''Evolution''. [[spoiler: Then he sells out to Clu, for no reason other than it potentially meaning a huge profit if Clu succeeds.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PreMortemCatchphrase: [[spoiler: "I fight for the Users!"]]


* 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.

Clu even states he managed to bring the Grid to its maximum potential under his reign which is why he tried to go into the real world to extend his reach.

Added DiffLines:

* FightingFromTheInside: [[spoiler: Twice before his HeroicSacrifice. The first time his gaze lingers on Kevin before he pulls back into position to attack, but he suddenly [[HearingVoices hears himself telling Flynn to run back during Clu's coup]] and has to shake it off. The second time happens seconds later as he hears Clu shout "Finish the Game!", which was something that ''Sark'' said. This time he simply pulls up to move into position to ''ram Clu,'' having regained his memories.]]
