Sam Flynn is the son to Kevin Flynn. He appears in the Disney film, Tron Legacy and in Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance. Sam was first seen in the special trailer released on February the 14th, 2012.
Although a world based on Tron: Legacy was first revealed to appear in Jump Festa 2012, Sam was not revealed until a special trailer in February 2012. In the trailer, he appears mostly to play out the same role as in Tron: Legacy, except for his interactions with Sora and Riku.
Sam's appearance is based on his attire in Tron: Legacy, in which he is shown with short, light brown hair and dressed in a black, skintight outfit with blue circuitry similar to Tron himself.
Sam's official debut was in the 2010 film Tron: Legacy, the sequel to Tron. He is presented as the son of the since-disappeared Kevin Flynn and the "official" owner of ENCOM, although the only interest he has in the company is playing an annual prank on the board of directors. Eventually receiving a message from his father, Sam enters The Grid inside his father's old arcade and ends up in conflict with the Grid's tyrannical ruler, CLU 2, and his right-hand man, Rinzler. As Sam is almost killed, he is saved by an ISO, Quorra, who takes him to his father in a secluded house in the mountains, where they are reunited.
Upon learning that CLU 2's goal is to enter the real world and take it over, Sam embarks on a mission to escape back to the real world with Flynn and Quorra while leaving CLU 2 trapped inside. Along the journey, Sam develops romantic feelings for Quorra. Eventually, when they make it to the I/O tower, Sam and Quorra are forced to leave Flynn behind, who sacrifices himself to destroy CLU 2 by merging with him. Once safely outside, Sam takes Quorra to a bridge to show her a sunrise, something she had longed to see for a while.
