If TRON would have needed a japanese partner, then this...

... this would have been his:

Yeah, it's a japanese series in which the hero periodically came "digitalized", and his battles are *all* placed in the computer world. Nothing of innovative, but the concept is still cool as hell! Enjoy it.

GRIDMAN was bought by an Italian channel not so time ago, and aired with another name (I don't even remember it). I thought: "okay, another unconscious TRON rip-off".
Keep in mind TRON was a success in Japan... in the worst case, I suppose GRIDMAN's releasers heard about it, of course!

This character was actually brought over here under a different series name.

I don't remember what it was, but it was supposed to be a power rangers rip off.

Edit-- actually now, yeah, this is it:

My memory is scary.

ABC aired that show long ago. The only reson I remember it was because right as Reboot was gaining good ground, ABC suddenly pluged this show in to replace it. They would have Megabyte sitting in his little command chair watching the shows end credits on a vid screen, commenting about how "fascinating" the show was. It was lame.
