** There's two weapons that ''do not'' have gold versions available, and one of them doesn't have a ''beta'' version either: the Energy Claw and the Prankster Bit. The Energy Claw can be found as an alpha and upgraded to beta using one of the last available [=COWs=] (Code Optimization Wares), or found as a beta later on. The Prankster Bit is only found as an alpha. After getting the alpha Energy Claw and upgrading it to a beta version (or finding the beta version), there are no more [=COWs=] in the game. And you get the Prankster Bit so late in the game that there's no [=COWs=] at all after you find it, so it can never be upgraded (without cheating).



* RPGElements: Before they were widely popular. The player can gather points throughout the game that can be used to "upgrade" Jet's basic characteristics (life meter, energy meter, etc.).

* RPGElements: Before they were widely popular. The player can gather points throughout the game that can be used to "upgrade" Jet's basic characteristics (life meter, energy meter, etc.).) by increasing his version number: he starts as Jet 1.0.0, and every 100 points, he upgrades to another full version (2.0.0, 3.0.0, etc) and can improve a characteristic. His highest full version is 9, and there's enough upgrade points to get him halfway to 10 (in case you miss some of the points). Upgrades improve his max health, max energy pool, energy/health drain speed, weapon efficiency, and so on. Upgrading any characteristic to max gives it a "surge", which is a massive final bonus to the characteristic: health surge gives a huge increase to maximum health, for example.


* LogicBomb: A prissy archive guard bars Jet from going into the Historical Archive on the old mainframe. Jet quickly asks him what the 7th even prime number is, causing him to spazz out.

Jet quickly asks him what the 7th even prime number is, is[[note]]Prime Numbers can't be even, because then they would be divisible by 2 and therefore not prime, so Jet is intentionally asking for an impossible result[[/note]], causing him to spazz out.


** Notably, while you will be fighting them for the majority of the game, the red ICP programs are ''not'' evil. They're security, and their doing their job of preventing unauthorized access.

** Interestingly, the amount of space is determined by the system you're accessing: some systems have lots of space for programs, while some (particularly the EN-1214 system) have very limited space due to hardware constraints.

* HostageSpiritLink: Killing any ally or civilian Program or failing to protect [[spoiler: [=Ma3a=] and Alan]] leads to an instant NonstandardGameOver.NonstandardGameOver, as Jet's "program" is forcibly terminated by the system[[note]]Presumably, the system could do that at any time, but the ICP programs are trying to stop Jet without using extra system resources. It's only when Jet endangers the system by killing a civilian or letting system-critical resources get derezzed that Jet gets purged[[/note]].


* AGodIAmNot: Between Thorne and the Wraiths, and the fact it almost got him killed by [[KnightTemplar The Kernel]], Jet is reluctant at best about embracing his [[PhysicalGod User]] status (it's played up a lot more in the spin-off comic).

As a result, he's at best only capable of things a very high level program would be able to do: his best "superpower" is being able to decide what he wants to do, something programs can't do.

* CutsceneIncompetence: Early on, Jet managed to plow through several waves of security units. But when a cutscene takes him directly to the Kernel's office, he surrenders without a fight

* IndecisiveDeconstruction / InternalDeconstruction: Of the "partial" and likely the "unintentional" varieties. The implications of humans being {{Physical God}}s in {{cyberspace}} are glossed over in the ''{{Film/Tron}}'' [[{{Film/TronLegacy}} films]] (and ExpandedUniverse), which feature [[AIIsACrapshoot malelovent Programs]] [[RobotsEnslavingRobots enslaving other Programs]] and planning to turn the same cruelty onto the human world. To switch the storyline to where the Programs are (for the most part) well-intentioned, and for ''humans'' to exploit virutal godhood in the ''worst'' way possible certainly hits one of the central premises of the universe and inverts the source of conflict shown in the movies, but doesn't do much past that. The spin-off comics take it all the way to DeconstructorFleet, however.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: I-No is an appropriate name for a wizened old indexing program who knows every corner of his system.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenPedestal: fCon's datawraiths aren't exactly sterling examples of human virtue. Some programs can be overheard saying, if they are indeed users as it's claimed, [[NayTheist perhaps users don't deserve the admiration they receive]].

Added DiffLines:

* EnergyBall: The Ball weapons. They use energy, are difficult to aim with any accuracy, and cause a large area of splash damage. When wielded by Thorne's minions, they also corrupt and infect nearby Programs.


* GameMod: The Killer App Mod from [=LDSO=] (Living Dead System Operators, a ''dedicated'' fan collective) patches a lot of the bugs found in initial release and restores several XBox only weapons to multiplayer (and yes, they maintain their own server for it on a limited basis). The same collective also came out with "User Error," a fan-done expansion pack that [[PatchworkFic attempts to tie the game into the]] ''{{Film/TronLegacy}}'' [[PatchworkFic timeline]].

Added DiffLines:

** A conversation between Jet and Alan references a bit from the film; "We made it!" "This far."
** "End of Line" is used as a form of "goodbye" or "end of message" several times.
