This article covers notable characters of the Tron franchise , including all of its various cinematic, literary, video game adaptations and sequels. For the first film, Richard Rickitt explains that to "produce the characters who inhabit the computer world, actors were dressed in costumes that were covered in black-and-white computer circuitry designs With coloured light shining through the white areas of their costumes, the resulting characters appeared to glow as if lit from within Clarke reported that Tron: Legacy would "combine live action with Computer-generated imagery CGI ," adding that "several characters He is played by Jeff Bridges. At the start of the first film, he owns "Flynn's", a video arcade where he impresses his patrons with his skills at games that unknown to them he designed at ENCOM, but remains determined to find evidence that CEO Ed Dillinger plagiarised Flynn's work to advance his position within the company. Throughout most of the film, Flynn travels around the digital world, accompanying the eponymous character Tron; but later discovers that as a User, he commands the physical laws of the digital world which empowers him beyond the abilities of an ordinary program.

He appears in Kingdom Hearts II as the highest-ranking program in Space Paranoids , and is the major antagonist of that world, bent on taking over the user world. He originated in Disney's film Tron. That system was deleted and its contents became The Grid ; however, Ansem the Wise discovered the old system at some point and copied it for his personal network.
Master Control Program
It was a computer program created by Ed Dillinger that ruled inside ENCOM 's mainframe computer to overview the game system, but rebelled himself and decided to get rid of the humans users, as he usually refers to them. During the rule of the MCP, many programs were enslaved and pitted against the program's henchmen, led by Sark. MCP is highly intelligent and yet ruthless. He apparently wants to get rid of humans and especially users. MCP appears as two pointed red cylinders balanced on both points with a sphere between them. The top half has a humanoid face. Years later, Dillinger wrote the MCP to administer the company's computer network; however, the MCP had the capacity to learn and grew beyond the confines of its original programming. It began to steal data from other systems, and took control of several companies and institutions. Its intelligence - and ambition - grew nearly out of control, and the MCP grew to desire nothing less than world domination.
The MCP was a leader in many areas, including: the first operating system to manage multiple processors, the first commercial implementation of virtual memory, and the first OS written exclusively in a high-level language. The Burroughs Large System B  and successors were unique in that they were designed with the expectation that all software, including system software, would be written in an HLL rather than in assembly language , which was a unique and innovative approach in Unlike IBM, which faced hardware competition after the departure of Gene Amdahl , Burroughs software was designed to run only on proprietary hardware. For this reason, Burroughs was free to distribute the source code of all software it sold, including the MCP, which was designed with this openness in mind. For example, upgrading required the user to recompile the system software and apply any needed local patches.
