* NeverSayDie: Averted, oddly. Rather than say Kevin Flynn and Tron were derezzed, like most programs, Quorra says they were "killed".

Added DiffLines:

* JustifiedExtraLives: Since you are playing as a computer program you are simply restored from backup whenever you die.


* DeadlyEuphemism: Programs don't die, they are derezzed. This one is true for the entire TRON [[TheVerse 'verse]], though. And for some reason, Quorra doesn't actually use this terminology at all.

This one is true for used pretty much interchangeably with "die" throughout the entire TRON [[TheVerse 'verse]], though. And for some reason, series. For the most part, the game uses derez in its dialog with a few exceptions, most notably Quorra doesn't actually use this terminology at all.never using it.

Added DiffLines:

* ReformulatedGame: ''Battle Grids'' has all of the same gameplay mechanics of Evolution but limit it to a party-style selection of minigames, with a simplistic story to tie together the single player mode. [[spoiler:Turns out its one plot twist is important to the main game.]]


Added DiffLines:

* [[StealthSequel Stealth Prequel]]: ''Battle Grids'' looks like a standard ReformulatedGame given the typical treatment of Wii titles for licensed games of the time period. [[spoiler:It actually turns out it covers events just prior to Clu creating Abraxas. You play the first Iso to compete in and win the Games, which the Abraxas Shards reveal is [[CuttingOffTheBranches Jalen]].]]


* SkilledButNaive: Characteristic of the [=ISOs=] and the undoing of [[spoiler:Jalen, architect of Arjia City, co-leader of the [=ISOs=], first [=ISO=] Champion of the Games, and prospective co-Administrator of the entire Grid...until he naively hands his disc over to Clu for an "upgrade", that is.]]

Added DiffLines:

* StoryBreadcrumbs: Abraxas Shards and Tron Files provide tidbits of information that reveal more of the plot than simply playing through the game will provide.


%%* CompetitiveBalance: Kind of. The different enemies fulfill different types.

* [[spoiler:TheHeroDies: Anon dies saving Quorra when the damaged Recognizer crashes in the ending.]]

* [[spoiler:TheHeavy: GrapplingHookPistol: The Mag Disc acts like one of these, pulling Anon toward the magnet hook he aims at.

* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: The idenity disc will fly straight at whatever the Monitors attack before either flying straight back.


'''''TRON: Evolution''''', the requisite [[LicensedGame video game tie-in]]/{{prequel}} to ''Film/TronLegacy'', fills in some of the backstory that is only vaguely alluded to in the film itself. You play as a newly-written program known only as the [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep System Monitor]], designed by Kevin Flynn to help quell the unrest between the newly-arrived [=ISOs=] and Grid-native Basics. The arrival of virus [[BigBad Abraxas]] on a supposedly-closed system doesn't help matters, and soon the Monitor is pressed into service to [[SaveTheWorld defend the Grid]] from threats both internal and external, with Quorra watching from a distance.

* CompetitiveBalance: Kind of. The different enemies fulfill different types.
** FragileSpeedster: Scout type Sentries, who can use LeParkour and run around the battlefield, but can be derezzed in two CounterAttack moves.
** GlassCannon: Light Tanks, if against a Bomb Disc. One hit can derez Anon, but a single bomb can also derez the tank.
** LightningBruiser: Black Guards, the EliteMooks who can use the same LeParkour as Anon, but also have a very high health limit and powerful attacks.
** MightyGlacier: Shield type Sentries, who can guard against many attacks with their shields and throw very powerful strikes, but are very slow.
