* GeniusBonus: The names of the cities, aside from Purgos, are elements on the periodic table. [[note]] Amusingly enough, this means there's likely a city on The Grid named [[{{VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh}} Mercury]] [[/note]]

** Parts of the fandom who work in real-world computer repair have pointed out that Cyrus's OmnicidalManiac plan is ''exactly'' what you do with a hard drive that's too corrupted to save and that the whole Dyson-Tron rivalry is very much like what happens if you have two incompatible pieces of security software on a system.


* ActorAllusion: In "Price of Power," Beck is tasked with destroying a powerful circle-shaped weapon before it falls into the wrong hands, uses it to escape a dangerous situation, and finds that using it begins to corrupt him. Nope, we definitely haven't seen Elijah Wood [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings play a character in that situation before]].
** Also wouldn't be the first time Mr. Boxleitner played a character BackFromTheDead and on ''severely'' [[BabylonFive borrowed time]].
** Guess [[{{Film/Aliens}} Bishop's]] model is also a little "twitchy"

* DecompositeCharacter: Fans on social media have pointed out that Beck has a strong resemblance, in both looks and personality, to Jet Bradley, the protagonist of the discredited ''[[{{VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh}} Tron 2.0]].''

* DrinkingGame: Take a shot when you remember this is supposed to be a ''kid's'' cartoon. Proceed to be comatose by the second act of "Scars"



* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Seven episodes in, it suddenly got postponed to October. The return lasted three episodes, just long enough to get the two-parter out of the way, before disappearing from the lineup ''again'' until December, where it got moved to ''midnight'' on Mondays. Short of not being aired at all, you cannot get much more screwed than that.
