Why are people automatically assuming that the second disc he's using is the one he picked up off of some random Black Guard mook he ganked during the fight at the crosswalk in Legacy? This is Tron we're talking about. If he's fighting with two discs as Rinzler, I'd like to think there's something more to the extra one than 'found weapon looted off of some faceless low-level program he crushed'.
Black guards are anything but low level.
Compared to Tron?
They're supposed to be like one rank below Tron in terms of skill level.
If the crosswalk fight sequence in Legacy was any indication, there's no comparison. I imagine they're not all created equal, but I figured it was pretty safe to assume that the ones accompanying Clu would be some of the more capable fighters in his army, and Tron destroyed them with almost contemptuous ease. So when I say 'low level', that's relative to Tron.

I wouldn't be surprised if that turns out to be the case. However their final confrontation ends up shaking out, Tron ends up holding onto Dyson's disc for whatever reason, and this subplot ends up explaining why he kept it and is fighting with two discs. Yeah, I think you may have nailed it.
I have this feeling that Dyson had strong ties with Tron in the past. We have to question why he's so pissed off at him personally. Was Dyson responsible for the scars on Tron? It can't be because that was all Clu's handiwork.
But, I have this little nagging feeling that Dyson was supposed to be Tron's protege and Beck is the second one currently.
I don't think taking Dyson's disc gives Tron a two-disc capability. He's had that ability ever since he got transferred from ENCOM to the Grid. Look at the flashback scene again in Legacy. Tron pops out two discs on his own.
I'm concerned that the flashback scene with Tron and the Black Guard in Uprising might not match accurately with Legacy. One of my problems with Uprising is the attention to detail and consistency. Overall, the writing is excellent, but attention to detail and consistency is extremely important.
I have long suspected that Uprising was the writers' attempt to 'explain away' things they could'nt answer in Legacy.
EDIT: By the way, the fight scene with the Black Guards look great and dramatic. But does the trailer show it takes place on the bridge area in Legacy? And if Tron with scars was still standing, going after Dyson, then Clu just failed to finish it up.
So think about it. Why would Clu want to make a deal to 'heal' and repurpose Tron when he originally wanted him dead? He should've done that in the first place, but did'nt think of it.
