Fictional Characters: TRONned

Clearly, something about the Tron: Legacy aesthetic clicked for a lot of people. Since the movie’s release — heck, since way before that, even — CG artists, sketchers, and painters have been putting the Tron spin on cartoon characters, superheroes, video game characters, and much more.

Here’s an exhaustive collection of more than 60 fictional/pop culture characters who’ve been TRONned, and to the best of my knowledge, these are 100% fan-made. The list ranges from the obvious (Star Wars + Tron = no-brainer), to the obscure (My Little Pony? seriously?), but I’m sure many of my finds will surprise you. There’s no accounting for taste, which I suppose is why there are three different versions of Princess Jasmine from Aladdin.

I present to you, the ultimate compilation of fictional characters who have entered the Grid, along with some who sport the old-school Tron look as well. They’re in alphabetical order, because that’s how I roll.

Darth Vader (Star Wars)

The most inevitable entry on this list. The only thing surprising about it is that this was the only one I could find; I expected there to be more. [Source]

The Flash (DC Comics)

Love the 3D texturing on this one. Very well done. [Source]

Dorothy Gale (The Wizard of Oz)

Not sure why there’s a mix of the old-school and Legacy aesthetics on this one. [Source]

Geth (Mass Effect)

Jessica Rabbit (Who Framed Roger Rabbit?)

I think this is the only female entry that’s done as Gem instead of Quorra or Yori. Which is appropriate for a temptress like Jessica. [Source]

Kim Possible

LEGO Minifigure

You have no idea how much I wish TT Games would make a LEGO Tron game! Would also love to see another image like this one done using Legacy‘s style. [Source]

Link (The Legend of Zelda)

The manliest Link has looked in like, ever. [Source]

Loki (Marvel Comics)

[Source]

Mad Hatter (Disney’s animated Alice in Wonderland)

[Source]

Magneto (Marvel Comics)

Love the detail of the floating discs, but it’s a little hard to see Magneto as threatening when he’s wearing pink. [Source]

Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty)

[Source]

Mario (Super Mario Bros.)

[Source]

Megamind (Dreamworks animated film)

[Source]

Megatron (Transformers)

I was very surprised to be unable to find an Optimus Prime. Seems like a no-brainer, doesn’t it? [Source]

Michael Jackson (Thriller)

Okay, so not a fictional character. Unless you count the zombie he played in the “Thriller” music video. [Source]

Mickey Mouse

[Source]

Minnie Mouse

Mon Calamari (Star Wars)

Mulan (Disney animated film)

[Source]

My Little Pony

Naruto (Naruto Shippuden)

Fun fact: my wife is convinced that when the voice-over guy on Disney XD says “Naruto Shippuden,” he’s really saying “not until she pooted.” Hear it once, and you’ll never hear it any other way. [Source]

Pac-Man

[Source]

Pinnochio (Disney animated film)

[Source]

Pocahontas (Disney animated film)

I like how this one uses the light patterns as Native American-ish symbols and tattoos. [Source]
