[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/howling_commandos_ca_9121.png]]

->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger | Series/AgentsOfSHIELD | Series/AgentCarter''

->''"See? Told you, they're all idiots."''
-->-- '''Bucky Barnes'''

Steve Rogers' hand-picked strike-force. Despite the prejudices of the 40s, each were chosen based on their fighting ability, not their race. Together the Commandos brought down of the ComicBook/RedSkull's bases, impeding his efforts for his [[NukeEm annihilation of the world]].
----
* BadassCrew: They kick much ass together. In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' the Smithsonian exhibit states that Bucky was the ''only'' soldier they ever lost in the entire war.
* BadassInDistress: All of them are former Prisoners Of War held in a HYDRA camp. After Steve frees them, they proceed to kick HYDRA butt.
* BadassNormal: With the exception of Steve himself, none of them are supersoldiers, and yet they all keep up with Steve.
* BlackVikings: Justified. All of them are excellent soldiers, and Cap (never one to pick rules over the right thing) needs the best, not what his era would consider the most appropriate.
* BloodKnight: They all happily accept Rogers' offer to re-enter the field of battle. Dugan in particular qualifies.
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames:
** The name "Howling Commandos" was used in the script, but never stated in the film. One screenwriter noted, "They are commandos, and at one point they do howl. They're called the Howling Commandos in the script, but no one says that out loud". However, in post-''[[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger First Avenger]]'' appearances and mentions, they are referred to as the Howling Commandos regularly.
** The official film soundtrack has a track called ''Invaders Montage'' during the OnPatrolMontage showcasing the team routing HYDRA forces. Again, they aren't called ''this'' name in the film, either.
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: Zig-zagged. The Howling Commandos are a team of seven men capable of laying waste to battalions of enemy forces and destroying a string of fortified HYDRA installations, but we aren't informed of what units the Howlers came from, though Bucky is said to belong to a standard infantry regiment (and a deleted scene shows both Dugan and Jones to come from the same unit), with the only exception of Falsworth, a British paratrooper in the appropriate uniform, though he is neither shown to be more badass than the others, nor is his elite cred mentioned.
* TheEnemyWeaponsAreBetter: Some of them use HYDRA weapons when they can. Other, like Cap or Bucky, [[KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter prefer bullets]].
* FireForgedFriends: The fact that most of them were locked in the same cage no doubt contributed to them forging a strong bond that transcends racial, national and class differences.
* IOweYouMyLife: Downplayed. Steve rescues them from being worked to death in a prison camp, and they eagerly agree to join his team.
* JumpedAtTheCall: All are pretty enthusiastic to follow Steve into battle.
* LegendaryInTheSequel: In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', the entire team is revealed to be immortalized in the Captain America exhibit at the Smithsonian. Over at ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', having a Howling Commando as a grandfather is an extremely big deal for a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. In ''Series/AgentCarter'', set just one year after ''[=TFA=]'', Peggy's [=SSR=] coworkers are awestruck by her camaraderie with the Commandos.
* MultinationalTeam: In the forties, no less! Dernier is French, Falsworth is British, and the rest are American, though they include Jones, an African-American, and Morita who is ''Nisei'', alongside the Caucasian Steve, Bucky and Dugan.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted. Half the team, that is 3.5 of them, are named James. The 0.5 is Jacques, which is the French form of James. Also played straight, as there is in fact only [[{{Pun}} one Steve]].
* TrueCompanions: Off the job, they're perfectly happy to hang out at the local bar together.
* YouAllMeetInACell: They all meet in a HYDRA cell.

!!Timothy Aloysius Cadwallader "Dum Dum" Dugan
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dum_dum_dogun_ca_5806.png]]

->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/NealMcDonough
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger | Film/MarvelOneShots: Film/AgentCarter | Series/AgentsOfSHIELD | Series/AgentCarter''

->''"Hell, I'll always fight. But you gotta do one thing for me: Open a tab."''

A prisoner Rogers rescued from a HYDRA factory, and a hand-picked member of his commandos.
----
* BadassMustache: Creator/NealMcDonough [[DyeingForYourArt grew the moustache]] specifically to emulate the comics.
* BattleCry: From ''Series/AgentCarter'', it's "Wahoo!".
-->'''Peggy:''' [[DeadpanSnarker "Stop wahooing and HELP!"]]
* TheBigGuy: Does most of the fighting for the commandos.
* BloodKnight: Loves fighting, just look at his quote above.
* BoisterousBruiser: Loves fighting ''and'' drinking.
* DrinkOrder: Bourbon. In ''Agent Carter'', Peggy brings him Bourbon all the way from America during the episode they're together.
* DrunkenMaster: Promise of fighting and more ale gets him on the Howling Commandos.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: What he says to a HYDRA guard.
-->'''Dum Dum:''' You know, Fritz, one of these days I'm going to have a stick of my own.
* LetMeGetThisStraight: His first response when Steve invited him to join his team.
* NiceHat: His bowler. One of the HYDRA guards seemed jealous of it. After becoming a Commando, it gets the Corporal insignia embossed on it. This leads to an amusing bit in ''Agent Carter'' where he seems to realize for the first time he has no idea why it's called a bowler.
* OverlyLongName: "Timothy Aloysius Cadwallader" is probably why they call him "Dum Dum".
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: He prefers them as a weapon even after they acquire HYDRA beam weapons.
* YouAreInCommandNow: After the war and Steve's freezing, he stays in the 107th and leads a new team of Howling Commandos.

[[folder:James Montgomery Falsworth]]
!!James Montgomery Falsworth
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/james_montgomery_falsworth_ca_5528.png]]

->'''Portrayed by:''' JJ Field
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

->''"Mind the gap."''[[note]]A phrase used on the London Underground, after his time, about the gap between the boarding platforms and the trains one boards. In this case, the gap is a zipline.[[/note]]

A Second Lieutenant in the British Paras and POW who joins Captain America's [[HowlingCommandos elite squad]].
----
* BadassMustache: Not as pronounced as Dugan's, but he still has quite an impressive one, as the pictures show.
* CharacterDeath: In a deleted scene in ''The Avengers'', his file has him listed as "Deceased". How and when this happened are unknown.
* CompositeCharacter: Of Union Jack I/James Montgomery Falsworth (name), Union Jack II/Brian Falsworth (camaraderie with Captain America & Bucky) and [[http://marvel.wikia.com/Percival_Pinkerton_(Earth-616) Percival Pinkerton]] (physical appearance, camaraderie with the Howlers).
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: He is a member of the British Paras, but this isn't mentioned.
* {{Expy}}: like his comics counterpart, he bears more than a slight resemblance to the most famous British General of World War II, Bernard Law Montgomery, down to his characteristic beret and moustache and, of course, the name. This is ironic, since the real Montgomery was an InsufferableGenius who was infamous for not getting on with his American colleagues.
* JumpedAtTheCall: His response to going back to the death camp he just barely escaped? "Sounds rather... fun, actually".
* MythologyGag: In the comics, he's the British equivalent of Captain America named "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_Jack_(comics) Union Jack]]". The film references this [[http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140826022048/marvelcinematicuniverse/images/0/02/Union_Jack_CATWS.png by having his uniform resemble the British flag]]. The ''[[VideoGame/CaptainAmericaSuperSoldier Super Soldier]]'' video game goes as far as Zola planning on turning Falsworth into Union Jack, but brainwashed and secretly working for HYDRA, though the comics' moniker is never said.
* NiceHat: A red beret, indicative of his being a paratrooper.
* OfficerAndAGentleman: Honorable British Lord and member of the army.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Not royal, but a member of the British aristocracy, though this isn't unusual - British officers were still drawn heavily from the aristocracy at the time and to some extent they still are.
* ToAbsentFriends:
-->'''Falsworth:''' ''[leading a toast with the other Howling Commandos]'' To the [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Captain]].

[[folder:Jacques Dernier]]
!!Jacques Dernier
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jacques_dernier_ca_6987.png]]

->'''Portrayed by:''' Bruno Ricci
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

->''"I will fight until the last one of these bastards will be dead, in chains, or crying like a little baby!"''

A French resistance operative. He was rescued from HYDRA's prison camp by Steve, and joined his handpicked elite unit as the resident explosives expert.
----
* BadassMustache: It's somewhere between Falsworth's and Dugan's on the bushiness scale.
* BilingualBonus: He only speaks in unsubtitled French. Gabe Jones typically acts as his translator.
* BloodKnight: He gets into his role. ''"I will fight until the last one of these bastards will be dead, in chains, or crying like a little baby!"''
* CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkey: Averted. He's french and just as brave as the rest of the Commandos.
* DemolitionsExpert: He's good at blowing up vehicles, often by sticking things underneath them.
* GadgeteerGenius: When it comes to [[StuffBlowingUp explosives]] he's your guy.
* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: Almost disintegrated Morita by pointing a HYDRA gun in the wrong direction.
* LaResistance: Before joining Howling Commandos, he was a member of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_Resistance French Resistance]].
* OldSoldier: Looks to be the oldest member of TheTeam.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Private Jim Morita]]
!!Jim Morita
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jim_morita_ca_9742.png]]

->'''Portrayed by:''' Kenneth Choi
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger | Series/AgentsOfSHIELD''

->''"I'm from Fresno, ace."''

A ''Nisei'' (American-Born Japanese) soldier from Fresno, California rescued by Steve. Jim endured the predictable prejudice towards his people after Pearl Harbor in spite of his patriotism. However, he soon proved himself a fierce and loyal battle-brother serving as the Communications Officer of Captain America's Howling Commandos.
----
* BadassBookworm: Communications officer and a commando to boot.
* CharacterDeath: In a deleted scene in ''The Avengers'', his file has him listed as "Deceased". How and when this happened are unknown.
* CommunicationsOfficer: He handles the team's communiques, and also taps into the enemy's radios.
* DeadpanSnarker: The 'Fresno' comment is dripping bitter sarcasm.
* TokenEnemyMinority: He's a ''Nisei'', meaning he has Japanese descent, but is American-born. He had to point this out when Dum-Dum thought he was this trope.
* YellowPeril: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] and [[DefiedTrope Defied]]; In his backstory he endured a lot of harassment for being Japanese after Pearl Harbor, but there's no mention of his race in the movie itself, and he's just as loyal and dedicated to bringing down the Nazis / HYDRA as the other Commandos.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Gabriel "Gabe" Jones]]
!!Gabriel "Gabe" Jones
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gabe_jones_ca_1975.png]]
->''"We barely got out of there alive, and you want us to go back? ...We're in."''

->'''Portrayed by:''' Derek Luke
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

Prior to being rescued by Captain Rogers, Gabe was a Linguistics-Major graduate of Howard University who hoped to steal the hearts of European women with his winning smile, charming personality and fluency of multiple languages. Now his linguistic mastery has become an invaluable asset amongst the Howling Commandos.
----
* BadassBookworm: Made doubly so by the difficulties and prejudice faced by African Americans when seeking education in the racist social-climate of 1940's America; and he was able to ''graduate'' in spite of said prejudices.
* {{BFG}}: Uses a huge two handed machine gun as his main weapon.
* BlackAndNerdy: Averted; Jones is every inch as fierce a warrior as his fellow Howling Commandos. Being an academic doesn't make him weak.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Averted. He doesn't die in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, and even is the one to capture Dr. Zola.
* BlackVikings: Last-minute aversion. A cut scene shows him fighting in the trenches in Bucky and Dum Dum's unit ''before'' their capture, even though in reality, black soldiers were segregated from white at the time. However, the scene was cut, so the canon Jones may have previously fought in a segregated unit as was the norm.
* CunningLinguist: Being able to read German tank-controls allowed Jones to help Dum-Dum turn the tide in the battle of the concentration camp. It's also shown he knows French, which allows him to interpret intercepted communications on Zola's train.
* EverythingsSexierInFrench: Including the ladies, according to him. That's why he learned the language.
* FamousAncestor: Strongly implied that he's the famous grandfather of Antoine Triplett in ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD''.
* TranslatorBuddy: To Jacques, who only knows French.

[[folder:Colonel Chester Phillips]]
!!Colonel Chester Phillips
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chester_phillips_ca_2260.png]]

->'''Portrayed By:''' Creator/TommyLeeJones
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

->''"If you have anything to say, now would be a perfect time to keep it to yourself."''

The US Army Colonel in charge of the SuperSoldier project alongside Erskine. Upon first seeing Rogers (before the serum), he "wanted to cry" and had absolutely no faith in the young asthmatic. Even after the project worked, Phillips still considered it a failure because Rogers was its only product instead of the supersoldier army he hoped for. While Phillips went off to the battlefield, he intended for Rogers to be locked up in a lab - didn't work out quite so well as the Captain became America's greatest propaganda icon. After the Cap saved 400 prisoners from HYDRA, the two reconciled and worked together to bring down Schmidt.
----
* BadassGrandpa: Clearly an older man, but no less of a badass for it.
* BadassNormal: No superpowers here, just vast combat experience and a shotgun.
* ColonelBadass: When he goes into combat, he shows that he's very much a badass: He joins the fray in the final fight and coins the response to HYDRA agents' "cut off one head, two more will take its place" evil creed.
-->'''HYDRA Soldier:''' [[BadassCreed Cut off one head, two more shall]]--! ''[gets [[KilledMidSentence shot mid sentence]] by Philips]''
-->'''Colonel Philips:''' ''[[[DramaticGunCock Dramatic Shotgun Cock]]]'' [[BondOneLiner Let's go find two more.]]
* CommanderContrarian: He's a commander who all his naysaying is an approach that leaves him with egg on his face no less than twice.
* CompositeCharacter: In the comics, Phillps chose Steve Rogers personally for being the Super Soldier test subject, while General Saunders was contrary. In the movie, Phillips fills Saunders role as he opposes the choice until being convinced otherwise.
* CoolCar: Procures Schmidt's monstrosity to help Cap stop him.
* DeadpanSnarker: Seeing as it's Creator/TommyLeeJones, it's hard to expect anything less.
-->'''Phillips:''' ''[when Steve looks to him for orders after his and Peggy's NowOrNeverKiss]'' [[NoYay I'm not kissing you!]]
* GoodIsNotNice:
** He may be on the heroically portrayed side in his film, but his words show he's not all that nice.
--->'''Phillips:''' When you brought a ''[[MuscleAngst ninety-pound asthmatic]]'' onto ''my'' army base, I let it slide. I thought, what the hell? Maybe he'll be useful to you, like a gerbil. I never thought you'd ''[[SuperSoldier pick]]'' him. ''[sees Pre-Serum Steve doing some very awkward jumping jacks]'' Look at him. He's making me cry.
** Steve shows him that the two can go hand in hand and he noticeably becomes more respectful, leading to the below trope.
* JerkassHasAPoint: He has a good reason for not staging a mission to rescue the 107th: they are located 30 miles behind enemy lines in a heavily fortified area. They'd lose more men than they'd save.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Dislikes Steve greatly early on, but warms up to him as he proves himself.
* TheNeidermeyer: Averted. He turns out to be [[ColonelBadass pretty awesome]].
* PetTheDog: Near the end of the film, he silently gives Peggy a file on Steve Rogers, [[HerHeartWillGoOn to help her cope with the loss of the love of her life.]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Not at first but CharacterDevelopment turns him into one, starting from the moment Steve surrenders himself to disciplinary action and up to his final scene when he gives Peggy Steve's folder with a heartfelt look of sympathy.
* SourSupporter: His reaction to [[MuscleAngst Steve Rogers]] JumpingOnAGrenade ([[SecretTestOfCharacter dud]]) instead of [[JerkJock his favored subject]]?
--> '''Colonel Philips:''' [[SourGrapes He's still skinny.]]
* VeteranInstructor: UsefulNotes/WorldWarII isn't his first rodeo.

[[folder:Dr. Abraham Erskine]]
!!Dr. Abraham Erskine
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abraham_erskine_ca_8967.png]]

->'''Portrayed By:''' Creator/StanleyTucci
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

->''"This is why you were chosen. Because a strong man, who has known power all his life, will lose respect for that power. But a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows compassion."''

A German scientist and inventor of a SuperSoldier formula. He picks Rogers as the candidate out of an entire muscled platoon, believing that a weak man knew the value of strength, and knew that Rogers was a truly good man.
----
* AllGermansAreNazis: [[DefiedTrope Defies]] and [[AvertedTrope averts]] this trope. As Erskine notes; "many people forget" the first country the Nazis invaded was, in fact, Germany.
* AmbiguouslyJewish: His name "Abraham", his resemblance to UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein, and his wife having been confirmed as Jewish in the tie-in comic all suggest this.
* TheAtoner: He works with Americans to create an American super-soldier because he was responsible for the creation of the Red Skull.
* CharacterDeath: The most clear in the film when he gets shot twice by Heinz Kruger.
* TheChooserOfTheOne: He chooses [[NiceGuy Steve Rogers]] to be [[SuperSoldier Captain America]].
* CoolOldGuy: For Example, in his conversation with Steve the night before the [[SuperSoldier procedure]] about drinking.
* DeathByOriginStory: He dies in the same scene as the creation of Captain America.
* FamousLastWords: Averted, instead he gently smiles and points to Steve's heart as he dies, reminding him to never forget his promise to stay a good man.
* ForScience: Averted. He doesn't want to create a super soldier for its own sake; he wants to so this super soldier can do good in the world.
* GoOutWithASmile: Since he knows that if one person had to be picked to be the only one to get the full serum, it should have been [[NiceGuy Steve]].
* HerrDoktor: Steve is initially surprised to see him because of this reason; his accent is German.
* MiseryBuildsCharacter: See his quote above; the reason he picked Steve is because Steve knows what it's like to be weak, and can empathize with those who can't defend themselves.
* MyGreatestFailure: Allowing [[ComicBook/RedSkull Schmidt]] to take the SuperSoldier serum.
* NiceGuy: Insists on noble qualities for his super soldier because he wants it to be used to end the war. He clearly isn't lacking in noble qualities himself.
* NonActionGuy: Not a fighter obviously.
* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: He intentionally kept all the notes to his super-serum in his head, as he didn't want anyone to replicate it and then misuse it.
* TheObiWan: To Steve; mentoring, empowering, death; the whole nine yards.
* ParentalSubstitute: In their friendship Abraham was a gentle figure of wisdom ''and'' the man who allowed Steve Rogers to be reborn as a new man, effectively becoming his second father in every sense of the word.
* TokenEnemyMinority: A German-born scientist working for the Allies in WWII.
* WideEyedIdealist: Adamant in his belief that it takes a kind heart to create the ultimate warrior, not just loyalty or willingness to fight; hence his choice of Steve as his candidate for the Super Soldier Serum test.

----
* CanonForeigner: She has no comic counterpart.
* ForcefulKiss: Forced Steve into one, until they're caught by [[WomanScorned Peggy]].
* SexySecretary: For Phillips; she's his personal assistant and played by the sinfully sexy Natalie Dormer. She wastes little time trying to seduce Steve.
* ShesGotLegs: As part of her SexySecretary get-up. The audience gets a view while she tries to seduce Steve.

[[folder:Georges Batroc]]
-->See the [[Characters/MCUCriminals Criminals page]]

->'''Portrayed By:''' Georges St-Pierre
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''

An Algerian pirate who was a former French Intelligence agent before going rogue. His crew hijacks a S.H.I.E.L.D ship, the ''Lemurian Star'', and thus become targets of STRIKE and Captain America.
----
* AdaptationalBadass: Batroc's considered something of a joke in the comics, although occasionally he proves to be a NotSoHarmlessVillain. Here he's able to put up a fair fight against a superhuman.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Batroc in the comics is essentially a thief at best, and he has a strong code of honor that includes not harming innocent people. Here, he's a pirate leader fully willing to kill hostages and raid boats.
* BeardOfEvil: Batroc sports a goatee and mustache, though it's nowhere near as pronounced as his comic book DastardlyWhiplash mustache.
* BadassNormal: He's the first non-enhanced human in the series to be able to put up a decent fight against Captain America in hand-to-hand combat, and later manages to make an escape from Cap and Natasha make his way off the ''Lemurian Star'' despite being in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
* BloodKnight: After he lost his ship and his crew, he went back just to fight Captain America.
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames: Referred to by his real name rather than his alias from the comic "Batroc the Leaper".
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Every fight with the guards on the ship was a CurbStompBattle by Cap. Only when he gets to the last guy, their leader Batroc, does he find himself a challenge.
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: Batroc was ex-DGSE, with over 36 kill missions, before his commanding officers axed his career. He's also been issued a Red Notice by Interpol.[[note]][[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interpol_notice More or less an international arrest warrant]].[[/note]]
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Unlike his comic book counterpart, he doesn't wear a helmet and even goads Steve Rogers into removing his own.
* IKnowKarate: He practices savate, a French martial arts with lots of jumping kicks. In the comics this is where he gets his full name "Batroc the Leaper". In the film, however, his style resembles more UsefulNotes/{{Capoeira}}.
* LetsFightLikeGentlemen: Well, not exactly ''gentlemen'', but he does belittle Cap for using a helmet and a defensive weapon, prompting him to put them aside and even the playing field.
-->'''Batroc:''' ''<...I thought you were more than just a shield.>''\\
'''Steve:''' ''<Let's find out.>''
* LightningBruiser: Fast and strong enough to pose a challenge to Captain America.
* MistakenNationality: Some characters assume he's French, but he's actually Algerian.
* MisplacedAccent: Despite being Algerian, he sports Georges St-Pierre's native Quebecois accent. To put this in perspective, this is as out of place as, say, an English-speaking Egyptian with an American accent would be.
* RaceLift: Just plain French in the comics, Algerian in the movie. He's still said to be a veteran of French Intelligence, and portrayed by an actor who doesn't look remotely North African.
* RuthlessModernPirates: Batroc is more interested in getting his ransom from S.H.I.E.L.D., but his crew is openly vicious and ready to kill any hostages.
* StarterVillain: Serves as the main antagonist during the opening mission of ''The Winter Soldier'', before the film's main crisis begins.
* TemptingFate: He demands that Captain America put his shield away so that the fight is fairer. Cap does... and then starts fighting even better than beforehand.
* UnwittingPawn: He was hired by Fury himself in a move to get the USB MacGuffin off the boat under cover of rescuing the team.
* WorthyOpponent: Captain America sees him as one, even going so far as to not use his shield while fighting him to put them on more even ground.

!!Everett K. Ross

->'''Portrayed By:''' Creator/MartinFreeman
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''

A government employee who works for the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre.
----
* CompositeCharacter: His role as the government attaché assigned to oversee the Avengers is similar to that of Henry Peter Gyrich, who traditionally serves as the team's government liaison in the comics, but who cannot be used in the MCU because of rights issues.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Kevin Feige has said Ross doesn't have a particularly large role in ''Civil War'', but will play a bigger part in future MCU movies. The character is most strongly associated with Black Panther in the comics.

->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger | Series/AgentsOfSHIELD | Series/AgentCarter''

->''"See? Told you, they're all idiots."''
-->-- '''Bucky Barnes'''

Steve Rogers' hand-picked strike-force. Despite the prejudices of the 40s, each were chosen based on their fighting ability, not their race. Together the Commandos brought down of the ComicBook/RedSkull's bases, impeding his efforts for his [[NukeEm annihilation of the world]].
----
* BadassCrew: They kick much ass together. In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' the Smithsonian exhibit states that Bucky was the ''only'' soldier they ever lost in the entire war.
* BadassInDistress: All of them are former Prisoners Of War held in a HYDRA camp. After Steve frees them, they proceed to kick HYDRA butt.
* BadassNormal: With the exception of Steve himself, none of them are supersoldiers, and yet they all keep up with Steve.
* BlackVikings: Justified. All of them are excellent soldiers, and Cap (never one to pick rules over the right thing) needs the best, not what his era would consider the most appropriate.
* BloodKnight: They all happily accept Rogers' offer to re-enter the field of battle. Dugan in particular qualifies.
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames:
** The name "Howling Commandos" was used in the script, but never stated in the film. One screenwriter noted, "They are commandos, and at one point they do howl. They're called the Howling Commandos in the script, but no one says that out loud". However, in post-''[[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger First Avenger]]'' appearances and mentions, they are referred to as the Howling Commandos regularly.
** The official film soundtrack has a track called ''Invaders Montage'' during the OnPatrolMontage showcasing the team routing HYDRA forces. Again, they aren't called ''this'' name in the film, either.
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: Zig-zagged. The Howling Commandos are a team of seven men capable of laying waste to battalions of enemy forces and destroying a string of fortified HYDRA installations, but we aren't informed of what units the Howlers came from, though Bucky is said to belong to a standard infantry regiment (and a deleted scene shows both Dugan and Jones to come from the same unit), with the only exception of Falsworth, a British paratrooper in the appropriate uniform, though he is neither shown to be more badass than the others, nor is his elite cred mentioned.
* TheEnemyWeaponsAreBetter: Some of them use HYDRA weapons when they can. Other, like Cap or Bucky, [[KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter prefer bullets]].
* FireForgedFriends: The fact that most of them were locked in the same cage no doubt contributed to them forging a strong bond that transcends racial, national and class differences.
* IOweYouMyLife: Downplayed. Steve rescues them from being worked to death in a prison camp, and they eagerly agree to join his team.
* JumpedAtTheCall: All are pretty enthusiastic to follow Steve into battle.
* LegendaryInTheSequel: In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', the entire team is revealed to be immortalized in the Captain America exhibit at the Smithsonian. Over at ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', having a Howling Commando as a grandfather is an extremely big deal for a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. In ''Series/AgentCarter'', set just one year after ''[=TFA=]'', Peggy's [=SSR=] coworkers are awestruck by her camaraderie with the Commandos.
* MultinationalTeam: In the forties, no less! Dernier is French, Falsworth is British, and the rest are American, though they include Jones, an African-American, and Morita who is ''Nisei'', alongside the Caucasian Steve, Bucky and Dugan.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted. Half the team, that is 3.5 of them, are named James. The 0.5 is Jacques, which is the French form of James. Also played straight, as there is in fact only [[{{Pun}} one Steve]].
* TrueCompanions: Off the job, they're perfectly happy to hang out at the local bar together.
* YouAllMeetInACell: They all meet in a HYDRA cell.

->''"Hell, I'll always fight. But you gotta do one thing for me: Open a tab."''

A prisoner Rogers rescued from a HYDRA factory, and a hand-picked member of his commandos.
----
* BadassMustache: Creator/NealMcDonough [[DyeingForYourArt grew the moustache]] specifically to emulate the comics.
* BattleCry: From ''Series/AgentCarter'', it's "Wahoo!".
-->'''Peggy:''' [[DeadpanSnarker "Stop wahooing and HELP!"]]
* TheBigGuy: Does most of the fighting for the commandos.
* BloodKnight: Loves fighting, just look at his quote above.
* BoisterousBruiser: Loves fighting ''and'' drinking.
* DrinkOrder: Bourbon. In ''Agent Carter'', Peggy brings him Bourbon all the way from America during the episode they're together.

-->'''Dum Dum:''' You know, Fritz, one of these days I'm going to have a stick of my own.
* LetMeGetThisStraight: His first response when Steve invited him to join his team.
* NiceHat: His bowler. One of the HYDRA guards seemed jealous of it. After becoming a Commando, it gets the Corporal insignia embossed on it. This leads to an amusing bit in ''Agent Carter'' where he seems to realize for the first time he has no idea why it's called a bowler.
* OverlyLongName: "Timothy Aloysius Cadwallader" is probably why they call him "Dum Dum".
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: He prefers them as a weapon even after they acquire HYDRA beam weapons.

A Second Lieutenant in the British Paras and POW who joins Captain America's [[HowlingCommandos elite squad]].
----
* BadassMustache: Not as pronounced as Dugan's, but he still has quite an impressive one, as the pictures show.
* CharacterDeath: In a deleted scene in ''The Avengers'', his file has him listed as "Deceased". How and when this happened are unknown.
* CompositeCharacter: Of Union Jack I/James Montgomery Falsworth (name), Union Jack II/Brian Falsworth (camaraderie with Captain America & Bucky) and [[http://marvel.wikia.com/Percival_Pinkerton_(Earth-616) Percival Pinkerton]] (physical appearance, camaraderie with the Howlers).
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: He is a member of the British Paras, but this isn't mentioned.
* {{Expy}}: like his comics counterpart, he bears more than a slight resemblance to the most famous British General of World War II, Bernard Law Montgomery, down to his characteristic beret and moustache and, of course, the name. This is ironic, since the real Montgomery was an InsufferableGenius who was infamous for not getting on with his American colleagues.
* JumpedAtTheCall: His response to going back to the death camp he just barely escaped? "Sounds rather... fun, actually".
* MythologyGag: In the comics, he's the British equivalent of Captain America named "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_Jack_(comics) Union Jack]]". The film references this [[http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140826022048/marvelcinematicuniverse/images/0/02/Union_Jack_CATWS.png by having his uniform resemble the British flag]]. The ''[[VideoGame/CaptainAmericaSuperSoldier Super Soldier]]'' video game goes as far as Zola planning on turning Falsworth into Union Jack, but brainwashed and secretly working for HYDRA, though the comics' moniker is never said.
* NiceHat: A red beret, indicative of his being a paratrooper.
* OfficerAndAGentleman: Honorable British Lord and member of the army.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Not royal, but a member of the British aristocracy, though this isn't unusual - British officers were still drawn heavily from the aristocracy at the time and to some extent they still are.

->''"I will fight until the last one of these bastards will be dead, in chains, or crying like a little baby!"''

A French resistance operative. He was rescued from HYDRA's prison camp by Steve, and joined his handpicked elite unit as the resident explosives expert.
----
* BadassMustache: It's somewhere between Falsworth's and Dugan's on the bushiness scale.
* BilingualBonus: He only speaks in unsubtitled French. Gabe Jones typically acts as his translator.
* BloodKnight: He gets into his role. ''"I will fight until the last one of these bastards will be dead, in chains, or crying like a little baby!"''
* CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkey: Averted. He's french and just as brave as the rest of the Commandos.
* DemolitionsExpert: He's good at blowing up vehicles, often by sticking things underneath them.
* GadgeteerGenius: When it comes to [[StuffBlowingUp explosives]] he's your guy.

->''"I'm from Fresno, ace."''

A ''Nisei'' (American-Born Japanese) soldier from Fresno, California rescued by Steve. Jim endured the predictable prejudice towards his people after Pearl Harbor in spite of his patriotism. However, he soon proved himself a fierce and loyal battle-brother serving as the Communications Officer of Captain America's Howling Commandos.
----
* BadassBookworm: Communications officer and a commando to boot.
* CharacterDeath: In a deleted scene in ''The Avengers'', his file has him listed as "Deceased". How and when this happened are unknown.
* CommunicationsOfficer: He handles the team's communiques, and also taps into the enemy's radios.
* DeadpanSnarker: The 'Fresno' comment is dripping bitter sarcasm.
* TokenEnemyMinority: He's a ''Nisei'', meaning he has Japanese descent, but is American-born. He had to point this out when Dum-Dum thought he was this trope.
* YellowPeril: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] and [[DefiedTrope Defied]]; In his backstory he endured a lot of harassment for being Japanese after Pearl Harbor, but there's no mention of his race in the movie itself, and he's just as loyal and dedicated to bringing down the Nazis / HYDRA as the other Commandos.

->'''Portrayed by:''' Derek Luke
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

Prior to being rescued by Captain Rogers, Gabe was a Linguistics-Major graduate of Howard University who hoped to steal the hearts of European women with his winning smile, charming personality and fluency of multiple languages. Now his linguistic mastery has become an invaluable asset amongst the Howling Commandos.
----
* BadassBookworm: Made doubly so by the difficulties and prejudice faced by African Americans when seeking education in the racist social-climate of 1940's America; and he was able to ''graduate'' in spite of said prejudices.
* {{BFG}}: Uses a huge two handed machine gun as his main weapon.
* BlackAndNerdy: Averted; Jones is every inch as fierce a warrior as his fellow Howling Commandos. Being an academic doesn't make him weak.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Averted. He doesn't die in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, and even is the one to capture Dr. Zola.
* BlackVikings: Last-minute aversion. A cut scene shows him fighting in the trenches in Bucky and Dum Dum's unit ''before'' their capture, even though in reality, black soldiers were segregated from white at the time. However, the scene was cut, so the canon Jones may have previously fought in a segregated unit as was the norm.
* CunningLinguist: Being able to read German tank-controls allowed Jones to help Dum-Dum turn the tide in the battle of the concentration camp. It's also shown he knows French, which allows him to interpret intercepted communications on Zola's train.
* EverythingsSexierInFrench: Including the ladies, according to him. That's why he learned the language.
* FamousAncestor: Strongly implied that he's the famous grandfather of Antoine Triplett in ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD''.
* TranslatorBuddy: To Jacques, who only knows French.

->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

->''"If you have anything to say, now would be a perfect time to keep it to yourself."''

The US Army Colonel in charge of the SuperSoldier project alongside Erskine. Upon first seeing Rogers (before the serum), he "wanted to cry" and had absolutely no faith in the young asthmatic. Even after the project worked, Phillips still considered it a failure because Rogers was its only product instead of the supersoldier army he hoped for. While Phillips went off to the battlefield, he intended for Rogers to be locked up in a lab - didn't work out quite so well as the Captain became America's greatest propaganda icon. After the Cap saved 400 prisoners from HYDRA, the two reconciled and worked together to bring down Schmidt.
----
* BadassGrandpa: Clearly an older man, but no less of a badass for it.
* BadassNormal: No superpowers here, just vast combat experience and a shotgun.
* ColonelBadass: When he goes into combat, he shows that he's very much a badass: He joins the fray in the final fight and coins the response to HYDRA agents' "cut off one head, two more will take its place" evil creed.
-->'''HYDRA Soldier:''' [[BadassCreed Cut off one head, two more shall]]--! ''[gets [[KilledMidSentence shot mid sentence]] by Philips]''
-->'''Colonel Philips:''' ''[[[DramaticGunCock Dramatic Shotgun Cock]]]'' [[BondOneLiner Let's go find two more.]]
* CommanderContrarian: He's a commander who all his naysaying is an approach that leaves him with egg on his face no less than twice.
* CompositeCharacter: In the comics, Phillps chose Steve Rogers personally for being the Super Soldier test subject, while General Saunders was contrary. In the movie, Phillips fills Saunders role as he opposes the choice until being convinced otherwise.
* CoolCar: Procures Schmidt's monstrosity to help Cap stop him.
* DeadpanSnarker: Seeing as it's Creator/TommyLeeJones, it's hard to expect anything less.
-->'''Phillips:''' ''[when Steve looks to him for orders after his and Peggy's NowOrNeverKiss]'' [[NoYay I'm not kissing you!]]

** He may be on the heroically portrayed side in his film, but his words show he's not all that nice.

I never thought you'd ''[[SuperSoldier pick]]'' him. ''[sees Pre-Serum Steve doing some very awkward jumping jacks]'' Look at him. He's making me cry.
** Steve shows him that the two can go hand in hand and he noticeably becomes more respectful, leading to the below trope.
* JerkassHasAPoint: He has a good reason for not staging a mission to rescue the 107th: they are located 30 miles behind enemy lines in a heavily fortified area. They'd lose more men than they'd save.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Dislikes Steve greatly early on, but warms up to him as he proves himself.
* TheNeidermeyer: Averted. He turns out to be [[ColonelBadass pretty awesome]].
* PetTheDog: Near the end of the film, he silently gives Peggy a file on Steve Rogers, [[HerHeartWillGoOn to help her cope with the loss of the love of her life.]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Not at first but CharacterDevelopment turns him into one, starting from the moment Steve surrenders himself to disciplinary action and up to his final scene when he gives Peggy Steve's folder with a heartfelt look of sympathy.

->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

->''"This is why you were chosen. Because a strong man, who has known power all his life, will lose respect for that power. But a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows compassion."''

A German scientist and inventor of a SuperSoldier formula. He picks Rogers as the candidate out of an entire muscled platoon, believing that a weak man knew the value of strength, and knew that Rogers was a truly good man.
----
* AllGermansAreNazis: [[DefiedTrope Defies]] and [[AvertedTrope averts]] this trope. As Erskine notes; "many people forget" the first country the Nazis invaded was, in fact, Germany.
* AmbiguouslyJewish: His name "Abraham", his resemblance to UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein, and his wife having been confirmed as Jewish in the tie-in comic all suggest this.
* TheAtoner: He works with Americans to create an American super-soldier because he was responsible for the creation of the Red Skull.
* CharacterDeath: The most clear in the film when he gets shot twice by Heinz Kruger.
* TheChooserOfTheOne: He chooses [[NiceGuy Steve Rogers]] to be [[SuperSoldier Captain America]].
* CoolOldGuy: For Example, in his conversation with Steve the night before the [[SuperSoldier procedure]] about drinking.
* DeathByOriginStory: He dies in the same scene as the creation of Captain America.
* FamousLastWords: Averted, instead he gently smiles and points to Steve's heart as he dies, reminding him to never forget his promise to stay a good man.
* ForScience: Averted. He doesn't want to create a super soldier for its own sake; he wants to so this super soldier can do good in the world.
* GoOutWithASmile: Since he knows that if one person had to be picked to be the only one to get the full serum, it should have been [[NiceGuy Steve]].
* HerrDoktor: Steve is initially surprised to see him because of this reason; his accent is German.
* MiseryBuildsCharacter: See his quote above; the reason he picked Steve is because Steve knows what it's like to be weak, and can empathize with those who can't defend themselves.
* MyGreatestFailure: Allowing [[ComicBook/RedSkull Schmidt]] to take the SuperSoldier serum.
* NiceGuy: Insists on noble qualities for his super soldier because he wants it to be used to end the war. He clearly isn't lacking in noble qualities himself.
* NonActionGuy: Not a fighter obviously.
* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: He intentionally kept all the notes to his super-serum in his head, as he didn't want anyone to replicate it and then misuse it.
* TheObiWan: To Steve; mentoring, empowering, death; the whole nine yards.
* ParentalSubstitute: In their friendship Abraham was a gentle figure of wisdom ''and'' the man who allowed Steve Rogers to be reborn as a new man, effectively becoming his second father in every sense of the word.
* TokenEnemyMinority: A German-born scientist working for the Allies in WWII.
* WideEyedIdealist: Adamant in his belief that it takes a kind heart to create the ultimate warrior, not just loyalty or willingness to fight; hence his choice of Steve as his candidate for the Super Soldier Serum test.

->'''Portrayed By:''' Georges St-Pierre
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''

An Algerian pirate who was a former French Intelligence agent before going rogue. His crew hijacks a S.H.I.E.L.D ship, the ''Lemurian Star'', and thus become targets of STRIKE and Captain America.
----
* AdaptationalBadass: Batroc's considered something of a joke in the comics, although occasionally he proves to be a NotSoHarmlessVillain. Here he's able to put up a fair fight against a superhuman.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Batroc in the comics is essentially a thief at best, and he has a strong code of honor that includes not harming innocent people. Here, he's a pirate leader fully willing to kill hostages and raid boats.
* BeardOfEvil: Batroc sports a goatee and mustache, though it's nowhere near as pronounced as his comic book DastardlyWhiplash mustache.
* BadassNormal: He's the first non-enhanced human in the series to be able to put up a decent fight against Captain America in hand-to-hand combat, and later manages to make an escape from Cap and Natasha make his way off the ''Lemurian Star'' despite being in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
* BloodKnight: After he lost his ship and his crew, he went back just to fight Captain America.
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames: Referred to by his real name rather than his alias from the comic "Batroc the Leaper".
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Every fight with the guards on the ship was a CurbStompBattle by Cap. Only when he gets to the last guy, their leader Batroc, does he find himself a challenge.
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: Batroc was ex-DGSE, with over 36 kill missions, before his commanding officers axed his career. He's also been issued a Red Notice by Interpol.[[note]][[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interpol_notice More or less an international arrest warrant]].[[/note]]
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Unlike his comic book counterpart, he doesn't wear a helmet and even goads Steve Rogers into removing his own.
* IKnowKarate: He practices savate, a French martial arts with lots of jumping kicks. In the comics this is where he gets his full name "Batroc the Leaper". In the film, however, his style resembles more UsefulNotes/{{Capoeira}}.
* LetsFightLikeGentlemen: Well, not exactly ''gentlemen'', but he does belittle Cap for using a helmet and a defensive weapon, prompting him to put them aside and even the playing field.
-->'''Batroc:''' ''<...I thought you were more than just a shield.>''\\
'''Steve:''' ''<Let's find out.>''
* LightningBruiser: Fast and strong enough to pose a challenge to Captain America.
* MistakenNationality: Some characters assume he's French, but he's actually Algerian.
* MisplacedAccent: Despite being Algerian, he sports Georges St-Pierre's native Quebecois accent. To put this in perspective, this is as out of place as, say, an English-speaking Egyptian with an American accent would be.
* RaceLift: Just plain French in the comics, Algerian in the movie. He's still said to be a veteran of French Intelligence, and portrayed by an actor who doesn't look remotely North African.
* RuthlessModernPirates: Batroc is more interested in getting his ransom from S.H.I.E.L.D., but his crew is openly vicious and ready to kill any hostages.
* StarterVillain: Serves as the main antagonist during the opening mission of ''The Winter Soldier'', before the film's main crisis begins.
* TemptingFate: He demands that Captain America put his shield away so that the fight is fairer. Cap does... and then starts fighting even better than beforehand.
* UnwittingPawn: He was hired by Fury himself in a move to get the USB MacGuffin off the boat under cover of rescuing the team.
* WorthyOpponent: Captain America sees him as one, even going so far as to not use his shield while fighting him to put them on more even ground.

* AdaptationalHeroism: The reveal that he's driven by [[spoiler:revenge for the death of his family]] makes him much more sympathetic than his outright villainous comic book counterpart. [[spoiler:He doesn't have ties to HYDRA, either.]]
* AdaptationalNationality: In the comics Helmut Zemo is German, but here he is [[spoiler:a Sokovian]].
* AdaptationalWimp: He never even attempts to fight the Avengers directly, whereas in the comics, he's able to hold his own against Captain America despite having no superpowers.

* BigBad: The lead villain in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''.
* ColonelBadass: He used to be a Colonel [[spoiler:in the Sokovian Special Forces]] and he is one of the most effective foes the Avengers have faced.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He's been studying how Captain America, and by extension the rest of The Avengers, fight their battles, and realizes that no villains, however powerful they are, have ever defeated them in a fight. [[spoiler: So he manipulates them into fighting each other.]]
* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler: Once he has put Iron Man against Bucky and Cap, he decides to shoot himself with a gun. Black Panther prevents him from doing so in order to make him face justice.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: According to a set visit, he will have a bigger role in the MCU down the line.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Despite his profound hatred of the Avengers, [[spoiler:he refuses to unleash the other five Winter Soldiers, as they're worse than Bucky and would do untold damage to the world]].
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:His wife, father and son were crushed by Sokovia's debris when it fell from the skies.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He's a former [[spoiler:Sokovian Special Forces colonel]], but otherwise he's just a normal guy living his life. [[spoiler: The death of his family during the Battle of Sokovia launches him on a secret crusade against the Avengers, and he succeeds in driving them apart, causing the most damage to them in a way that none of the previous villain has ever managed to achieve.]]
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: [[spoiler: He wants to take revenge for the death of his family which he blames on the Avengers. In doing so, he is responsible for the deaths of dozens of innocent people himself.]]
* HiddenAgendaVillain: His motives remain unclear for much of the film.
* MarqueeAlterEgo: Unlike the comics, Zemo does not wear a mask.
* NonActionBigBad: He never directly fights any of the Avengers, acknowledging that he could never physically stand up to the likes of them. Instead, he relies more on subterfuge and deception.
* NothingPersonal: [[spoiler: He tells T'Challa that he is sorry for killing his father and that he seemed like a good man.]]
* TragicVillain: [[spoiler: He wants to take revenge on the Avengers for the death of his family in Sokovia.]]

Cameron Klein was a S.H.I.E.L.D. Technician responsible for the launch of the Insight Helicarriers.

'mothballed' Helicarrier.



* AdaptationalVillainy: In the comics, Pierce is a standard, good guy agent. In the movie, he's not only the BigBad of the second film, but also a part of HYDRA.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Comic Pierce has black hair, the movie version has Redford's natural red.
* AgeLift: Pierce is a young man in the comics, somewhere in his thirties, and not even half of Redford's age.
* BadassBoast: His retort to Nick Fury's line in BrokenPedestal below.
-->'''Alexander Pierce:''' You already did. You will again, when it's useful.
* BigBad: Of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''. He calls for the hit on Fury, gives orders to the Winter Soldier, and plans to use Helicarriers and Zola's algorithm to place the entire world under his control.
* BigBadFriend: To Nick Fury, whom he has a long history with and whom he tries to have killed rather quickly.
* BrokenPedestal: He was the man who appointed Nick Fury as Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. and was TheMentor to him. The revelation that he was EvilAllAlong greatly upsets Nick.
-->'''Nick Fury:''' You know, there was a time when I would have taken a bullet for you.
* CelebrityParadox: Redford's long career combined with the size of the MCU would make it pretty hard to avoid, and sure enough ''Film/ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid'' has been mentioned on ''Agents of SHIELD''.
* CompositeCharacter: The film's Pierce is an amalgamation of several different characters from the Marvel Universe; Alexander Goodwin Pierce, as far as the name goes, Robert 'Rebel' Ralston, in being an old friend of Fury's who was in an oversight position over S.H.I.E.L.D., not to mention being drawn to look like Redford for a time, and Aleksander Lukin, the Winter Soldier's master. His motives and high position evoke shades of Number One of the Secret Empire arc, while he physically resembles Arnold Brown, the leader of HYDRA during the Strange Tales story arc where the organization first appeared.
* CoolOldGuy: The fact that he's Robert Redford is reason enough, but he also argues defiantly with the World Security Council and has a good sense of humor.
* CorruptBureaucrat: When it comes down to it, this is all he is, but the corruption is in a different way than most. Think of a kill list. People who, it's been decided, threaten the world's order enough that they must be killed to uphold it. From that, he's extrapolated the concept of figuring out what makes a person threaten world order, then removing the people who fit that profile in their dozens, or hundreds, or millions before they become threats. Never mind "innocent until proven guilty". Never mind those on kill lists have usually actively resisted less lethal alternatives. It's just another step...
* DeadpanSnarker: His remark about pointing out Algiers on a map qualifies. This is apparently a habit of his; at one point, one of the World Security Council asks Pierce to get any "snappy remarks" out of the way early.
* DeathGlare: Despite his usual [[FauxAffablyEvil friendly-seeming demeanor]], he can demonstrate a pretty chilling one, such as during Captain America's RousingSpeech and when Pierce kills the World Security Councilors.
* DetectiveMole: He puts himself in charge of investigating Fury's "murder."
* DissonantSerenity: This is his reaction to shooting his maid, who has walked in on him chatting with The Winter Soldier:
-->'''Pierce:''' ''[in a completely calm tone]'' Oh, Renata; I wish you'd ''knocked.''
* DyingAlone: After being shot by Fury, he's left to die in in the ruins of his office as the helicarriers and his plans crumble to pieces around him, proclaiming loyalty to HYDRA with his final breath.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: His first appearance, meeting with the Council. He's standing while they're sitting passively, and while they're argumentative, stuffy, and obstructive, Pierce sees through all of it and delivers catty zingers at their expense. Lastly, there's this exchange, which greatly foreshadows TheReveal later on.
--> '''Councilman:''' This Council takes piracy seriously.\\
'''Pierce:''' [[BrutalHonesty Really? I don't.]] [[WhatIsOneMansLifeInComparison I don't care about one ship. I care about the fleet.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes:
** His daughter, whose near death at the hands of terrorists was what motivated his StartOfDarkness. When he saw how his inaction would've cost her her life and how Fury's unauthorized heroics saved her, Pierce decided he'd rather have the power to stop threats before they occur, whatever the cost, and this may have contributed to his turning to HYDRA.
** He also expresses regret about the death of his maid, even though he personally was forced to shoot her after she stumbled on his meeting with Winter Soldier.
* EvilOldFolks: One of the oldest people in ''The Winter Soldier'' (Robert Redford was 76 at the time of filming) and the head bad guy.
* EvilRedhead: Pierce has Redford's red hair, and is the current leader of HYDRA. Better than having a red face like the previous leader.
* FamousLastWords: "Hail HYDRA."
* FauxAffablyEvil: At first, Pierce seems like another Nick Fury. He rails against the World Security Council much like Fury, has a friendship with Fury and is a fan of the Avengers. The reality is, he's a manipulative {{Jerkass}} who is a member of a dictatorial regime that was spawned in Nazi Germany and he himself is responsible for God-knows how many deaths over the years.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: A bespectacled remorseless mass murderer and HYDRA leader.
* GreaterScopeVillain: Of the first season of ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD''. The first season's BigBad is a mysterious DiabolicalMastermind who calls himself the Clairvoyant, who is actually a HYDRA mole within S.H.I.E.L.D. That means this guy is his boss, but is uninvolved with his EvilPlan.
* HannibalLecture: After Natasha takes over his meeting, puts him at gunpoint and Nick Fury walks in, he gives one of these at the end of the movie. He tells Fury that seeing his aggressive stance on terrorism earlier in their lives is what inspired Pierce to actively stamp out any and all threats to peace. Giving that meant joining HYDRA, Fury is noticeably upset at the notion.
* HumbleHero: Turned down the Nobel Peace Prize. Why? Because he sees it as just the right thing to do. Problem is, he's more about "peace through overwhelming power".
* KarmicDeath: Shot twice by Nick Fury, the man he tried to kill and whose "death" set the motion of the events in the film.
* KickTheDog:
** When his housekeeper unexpectedly returns and stumbles onto his meeting with the Winter Soldier, he shoots her twice with only the most minor of regrets.
** While trying to get a mission report from the Winter Soldier, Pierce slaps him in the face when he proves unresponsive, then has him subjected to a painful memory wipe, indifferent to the Soldier's screams of agony as he walks away. This ''disturbs'' the HYDRA agents watching, which includes Brock Rumlow, and they're all normally very apathetic.
* KnightTemplar: Seems to genuinely believe that HYDRA's work is for the good of mankind.
* TheManBehindTheMan: The one who's pulling the strings of the Winter Soldier. He is also HYDRA's modern day leader.
* ManipulativeBastard: He's successfully manipulated S.H.I.E.L.D. for years, and does a good job for manipulating the World Security Council, Captain America and even seasoned chessmaster Nick Fury.
* MoleInCharge: He is HYDRA's mole within S.H.I.E.L.D. and he's ''Fury's boss''. After Fury's death, his control of S.H.I.E.L.D. is essentially rock-solid.
* TheNeedsOfTheMany: He justifies his plot to have HYDRA shoot 20,000,000 people by saying their deaths will save billions.
* NonActionBigBad: Unusually for a superhero movie, Pierce does not ''appear'' to have any physical combat capabilities. However, he knows how to use guns and hidden kill-gadgets, and given that he is in command of virtually all of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s resources (including legions of SWAT teams, ''multiple'' helicarriers, and [[OneManArmy The Winter Soldier]]), he is still extremely dangerous.
* OhCrap: Multiple ones, during the Finale.
** First when Natasha reveals that she infiltrated the Council and takes out his guards. Pierce can only watch in surprise.
** Then, when Nick Fury reveals he survived the assassination attempt. Pierce respond with a grimace but tries to save face with a quip.
-->'''Pierce:''' [[BlackComedy Did you get my flowers?]]
** Last when, Black Widow shocks herself to disable Pierce's kill-device on her. This time his shock of trying to figure out what just happened buys time for Fury to grab a gun and shoot him.
* RealAwardFictionalCharacter: Pierce is notable for that time he turned down the Nobel Peace Prize by saying that peace is a goal that must be continuously striven for and such a worthy goal does not need prizes. By this point in the film he's already been revealed as the head of HYDRA, and we know that HYDRA's ideas of peace are not the kind that would warrant the Peace Prize. Nick is suitably disgusted when he says the line.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Introduced as friend and superior of Nick Fury's, a member of the World Security Council, despite not appearing among them in ''The Avengers''. Almost all the WSC members seen here are new, though, so it's possible ''The Avengers'' either didn't show all the members or there was a change in staff in the time since.
* RunningBothSides: For most of ''The Winter Soldier'', he's in charge of both the legitimate S.H.I.E.L.D. and the American division of HYDRA.
%%* SharpDressedMan: Wears a gray three-piece suit.
* SmugSmiler: When Fury turns up alive, he can only smirk. Alan Dale's World Security Councillor even calls him a "smug son of a bitch" which is a very accurate description.
* TwoFirstNames: Alexander and Pierce.
* TheUnfettered: The ends justify the means for Pierce, so he doesn't bother limiting his means; early in ''The Winter Soldier'', he tries to have his old friend Nick Fury assassinated by police officers. Then there's Project INSIGHT.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity:
** He turned down a Nobel Peace Prize because he supposedly felt that peace wasn't something you achieve and then get a prize for; it's something you must forever strive to attain and defend.
** He remained a very high-ranking S.H.I.E.L.D. agent until Rogers exposed him as the leader of HYDRA.
* WalkingSpoiler: Being an essential character in the ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' movie, a great deal of his role consists of spoilers.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Pierce ''believes'' himself to be one of these, but it falls short when one considers that the intended targets of Project Insight were all people who stood to threaten HYDRA, rather than the world as a whole.

* MoleInCharge: He is HYDRA's mole within UndyingLoyalty: To S.H.I.E.L.D. and he's ''Fury's boss''. After Fury's death, his control of S.H.I.E.L.D. is essentially rock-solid.
* TheNeedsOfTheMany: He justifies his plot to have HYDRA shoot 20,000,000 people by saying their deaths will save billions.
* NonActionBigBad: Unusually for a superhero movie, Pierce does not ''appear'' to have any physical combat capabilities. However, he knows how to use guns and hidden kill-gadgets, and given that he is
Captain America as seen in command of virtually all of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s resources (including legions of SWAT teams, ''multiple'' helicarriers, and [[OneManArmy The Winter Soldier]]), he is still extremely dangerous.
* OhCrap: Multiple ones, during the Finale.
** First when Natasha reveals that she infiltrated the Council and takes out his guards. Pierce can only watch in surprise.
** Then, when Nick Fury reveals he survived the assassination attempt. Pierce respond
''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''. Even with a grimace but tries to save face with a quip.
-->'''Pierce:''' [[BlackComedy Did you get my flowers?]]
** Last when, Black Widow shocks herself to disable Pierce's kill-device on her. This time his shock of trying to figure out what just happened buys time for Fury to grab a gun and shoot him.
* RealAwardFictionalCharacter: Pierce is notable for that time he turned down the Nobel Peace Prize by saying that peace is a goal that must be continuously striven for and such a worthy goal does not need prizes. By this point in the film he's already been revealed as the head of HYDRA, and we know that HYDRA's ideas of peace are not the kind that would warrant the Peace Prize. Nick is suitably disgusted when he says the line.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Introduced as friend and superior of Nick Fury's, a member of the World Security Council, despite not appearing among them in ''The Avengers''. Almost all the WSC members seen here are new, though, so it's possible ''The Avengers'' either didn't show all the members or there was a change in staff in the time since.
* RunningBothSides: For most of ''The Winter Soldier'', he's in charge of both the legitimate S.H.I.E.L.D. and the American division of HYDRA.
%%* SharpDressedMan: Wears a gray three-piece suit.
* SmugSmiler: When Fury turns up alive, he can only smirk. Alan Dale's World Security Councillor even calls
Brock Rumlow held him a "smug son of a bitch" which is a very accurate description.
* TwoFirstNames: Alexander and Pierce.
* TheUnfettered: The ends justify the means for Pierce, so
at gunpoint, he doesn't bother limiting sacrifice his means; early in ''The Winter Soldier'', he tries to have loyalty even if it might cost his old friend Nick Fury assassinated by police officers. Then there's Project INSIGHT.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity:
** He turned down a Nobel Peace Prize because he supposedly felt that peace wasn't something you achieve and then get a prize for; it's something you must forever strive to attain and defend.
** He remained a very high-ranking S.H.I.E.L.D. agent until Rogers exposed him as the leader of HYDRA.
* WalkingSpoiler: Being an essential character in the ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' movie, a great deal of his role consists of spoilers.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Pierce ''believes'' himself to be one of these, but it falls short when one considers that the intended targets of Project Insight were all people who stood to threaten HYDRA, rather than the world as a whole.

An Algerian pirate who was a former French Intelligence agent before going rogue. His crew hijacks a
S.H.I.E.L.D. operative working with D ship, the ''Lemurian Star'', and thus become targets of STRIKE and Captain America and leader of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s STRIKE team.America.



* AdaptationalHeroism: PlayedWith. In the comics, Rumlow has always been an unrepentant thug with zero redeeming characteristics. In the movie, he's a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who turns out to be a HYDRA agent, although HYDRA has taken on KnightTemplar traits in this film, so the trope still applies to a limited extent; in the comics, Rumlow loyally served the openly evil Red Skull.
* BadassNormal:
** In ''Winter Soldier'', he's just a well-trained ordinary human, but he dominates in his fight with Sam and can even briefly hold out against Captain America in a fight, albeit not to the same extent as Batroc.
** After becoming Crossbones, Rumlow seems to have acquired advanced combat equipment(including a pair of powered gauntlets that look and operate suspiciously like [=StarkTech=]), that allow him to match Captain America in a fight.
* BadassBoast: He's one of the toughest agents around and he knows it, as shown when he brags before fighting Sam Wilson aka "Falcon".
-->'''Rumlow''': This is gonna hurt. There are no prisoners with HYDRA. Just order, and order only comes through pain. You ready for yours? (''after beating Falcon down again'') You're out of your depth, kid.
* BeardOfEvil: A PermaStubble goatee
* BodyHorror: Rumlow ''survived'' having a Helicarrier crash into a building while he was inside of said building. The end result isn't pretty. In ''[[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar Civil War]]'', [[spoiler: he shows that the various burns and debris left his face incredibly disfigured, prompting him to primarily sport a mask]].
* TheBrute: He acts as Pierce's main muscle in ''The Winter Soldier''.
* CoDragons: With the Winter Soldier, to Alexander Pierce. Of those two, Rumlow is more active, and seems to be the blunt hammer and everyday right-hand man. When things ''really'' need to get done, the higher-ups call in Bucky/the Winter Soldier.
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames: Zig-zagged. He's never referred to as 'Crossbones' in ''Winter Soldier'', having not yet taken up the alias, and the only hint is the cross-shape of his weapon straps across his chest; ''Civil War'', however, sees him finally identified as such, and donning a helmet and armored pads painted to resemble his comics counterpart.
* DeadpanSnarker: At least as part of his façade as Cap and Black Widow's friendly colleague.
--> '''Rumlow:''' ''[after saving Steve from one mook when Cap's already taken every other one out]'' Yeah, you seemed pretty helpless without me.
* DragonTheirFeet: He's still fighting Sam after [[BigBad Pierce]] and HYDRA's Helicarriers have been dispatched.
* EvilAllAlong: Rumlow's been a member of HYDRA for God knows how long.
* FaceHeelTurn: Introduced as a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague of Cap and Black Widow and on friendly terms with them, but eventually turns on them, because he's a member of HYDRA.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He's personable enough, and even claims that his assault on Cap is nothing personal, but he's still a loyal agent of HYDRA and ruthless killer.
* FriendlyEnemy: To Cap. They're on opposite sides of the S.H.I.E.L.D.-HYDRA conflict, but according to the DVD commentary, he actually has a degree of admiration for Cap. This suggests that his attack on Cap may have indeed been NothingPersonal, despite what Cap believes.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: In ''Civil War'', under his mask Rumlow's face is moderately scarred up from having S.H.I.E.L.D. Headquarters dropped on his head.
* KnightTemplar: If his remarks towards the end of the film are any indication, Rumlow [[TheFundamentalist fully believes]] in HYDRA's goals.
* TheLancer: Prior to HYDRA's uncloaking he acted as Captain America's NumberTwo in missions
* MadeOfIron: He survived a Helicarrier crashing into the building he was in. [[DeconstructedTrope He's not in good shape afterwards, though]].
* TheMole: One of the many HYDRA moles.
* MookLieutenant: As the leader of S.T.R.I.K.E.
* NervesOfSteel: Easily the most cool headed member of both Strike and the rest of the Hydra agents sent to try and capture Cap in the elevator. Everyone else is either sweating in anticipation or giving away their plans via posture or acting unnatural. Rumlow has his arms crossed and makes small talk to try and lower Cap's guard.
* NothingPersonal: Claims this when attacking Cap. Steve begs to differ.
** Averted in ''Civil War'', where he holds an immense grudge against Cap for the brutal damage he suffered at the end of ''The Winter Soldier''. [[spoiler: It leads to him trying to take Steve out in a last-ditch suicide bomb]].
* NotQuiteDead: At the climax of the movie, he's seemingly crushed to death under debris when a heli-carrier crashes into the floor of the building he's in. A sequence before the credits reveals he's badly scarred and in critical condition, but still alive.
* PermaStubble: It gives him a rugged, tough-guy look.
* PragmaticVillainy: Though ruthless, he knows better than to shoot Rogers in broad daylight, after spotting a news helicopter filming overhead. Instead he opts to capture him and transport him some place abandoned where they can shoot him and dump the body.
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: [[spoiler: Serves as the StarterVillain of ''Civil War'' and dies during the first 10 minutes. though he inadvertenly kicks off the main plot.]]
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler: In the opening of ''Civil War'', he gets outfought by Cap and tries to blow up a bomb that will take them both out, as well as the surrounding block of people. He fails in his goal, as Wanda suppresses the blast and lifts Crossbones into the air away from Steve. However, the explosion ends up packing too much power for her to hold back completely, and a number of people in nearby building are killed as a result]].
* WeaponOfChoice: Carries an electrified shock baton that are powerful enough to knock-out a mercenary with a single touch and hurt Rogers.

to:

* AdaptationalHeroism: PlayedWith. In AdaptationalBadass: Batroc's considered something of a joke in the comics, Rumlow although occasionally he proves to be a NotSoHarmlessVillain. Here he's able to put up a fair fight against a superhuman.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Batroc in the comics is essentially a thief at best, and he
has always been an unrepentant thug with zero redeeming characteristics. In the movie, a strong code of honor that includes not harming innocent people. Here, he's a pirate leader fully willing to kill hostages and raid boats.
* BeardOfEvil: Batroc sports a goatee and mustache, though it's nowhere near as pronounced as his comic book DastardlyWhiplash mustache.
* BadassNormal: He's the first non-enhanced human in the series to be able to put up a decent fight against Captain America in hand-to-hand combat, and later manages to make an escape from Cap and Natasha make his way off the ''Lemurian Star'' despite being in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
* BloodKnight: After he lost his ship and his crew, he went back just to fight Captain America.
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames: Referred to by his real name rather than his alias from the comic "Batroc the Leaper".
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Every fight with the guards on the ship was a CurbStompBattle by Cap. Only when he gets to the last guy, their leader Batroc, does he find himself a challenge.
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: Batroc was ex-DGSE, with over 36 kill missions, before his commanding officers axed his career. He's also been issued a Red Notice by Interpol.[[note]][[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interpol_notice More or less an international arrest warrant]].[[/note]]
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Unlike his comic book counterpart, he doesn't wear a helmet and even goads Steve Rogers into removing his own.
* IKnowKarate: He practices savate, a French martial arts with lots of jumping kicks. In the comics this is where he gets his full name "Batroc the Leaper". In the film, however, his style resembles more UsefulNotes/{{Capoeira}}.
* LetsFightLikeGentlemen: Well, not exactly ''gentlemen'', but he does belittle Cap for using a helmet and a defensive weapon, prompting him to put them aside and even the playing field.
-->'''Batroc:''' ''<...I thought you were more than just a shield.>''\\
'''Steve:''' ''<Let's find out.>''
* LightningBruiser: Fast and strong enough to pose a challenge to Captain America.
* MistakenNationality: Some characters assume he's French, but he's actually Algerian.
* MisplacedAccent: Despite being Algerian, he sports Georges St-Pierre's native Quebecois accent. To put this in perspective, this is as out of place as, say, an English-speaking Egyptian with an American accent would be.
* RaceLift: Just plain French in the comics, Algerian in the movie. He's still said to be a veteran of French Intelligence, and portrayed by an actor who doesn't look remotely North African.
* RuthlessModernPirates: Batroc is more interested in getting his ransom from
S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who turns out to be a HYDRA agent, although HYDRA has taken on KnightTemplar traits in this film, so the trope still applies to a limited extent; in the comics, Rumlow loyally served the , but his crew is openly evil Red Skull.

* AscendedExtra: [[spoiler:In ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', he's recruited by Nick Fury as a technician for the old Helicarrier in a bid to evacuate the citizens of Sokovia before Ultron could enact his EvilPlan. Upon arrival he launched the Helicarrier's lifeboats to the now levitating city so that the Avengers and local law enforcement could commence with the evacuation. This time, he's credited with the name "Cameron Klein"]].
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Averted as he intended one by defying Rumlow's commands while having a gun put to his head but Sharon Carter manages to kick him away from the gun and thus save his life.]]
* MissionControl: His job in S.H.I.E.L.D. is to offer assistance with information and technology to those in the field.
* MythologyGag: In the comics, he is grandson of Stanley Klein, a United States Armed Forces private rescued by Captain America and the Howling Commandos during World War II. By knowing this, his loyalty to S.H.I.E.L.D. and Captain America becomes more heartwarming and meaningful.
* NoNameGiven: He's unnamed until his appearance in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''.
* NonActionGuy: He's technician, not personal combatant. [[spoiler:It's made explicit by him hiding under his desk when the S.H.I.E.L.D. loyalists and HYDRA infiltrators start shooting at each other and in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' hysterically screaming when an Ultron drone breaches the Helicarrier bridge.]]

* SmallRoleBigImpact: Consider that Cap saved the world with ''less than one second'' remaining. Now, remember that this man refused to launch the INSIGHT carriers, even at gunpoint, and stalled Rumlow for as long as he could. The entire MCU owes this man huge thanks.
* UndyingLoyalty: To S.H.I.E.L.D. and Captain America as seen in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''. Even with Brock Rumlow held him at gunpoint, he doesn't sacrifice his loyalty even if it might cost his life.

[[folder:Georges Batroc]]
!!Georges Batroc
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bartoc_tws_9801.jpg]]

->'''Portrayed By:''' Georges St-Pierre
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''

An Algerian pirate who was a former French Intelligence agent before going rogue. His crew hijacks a S.H.I.E.L.D ship, the ''Lemurian Star'', and thus become targets of STRIKE and Captain America.
----
* AdaptationalBadass: Batroc's considered something of a joke in the comics, although occasionally he proves to be a NotSoHarmlessVillain. Here he's able to put up a fair fight against a superhuman.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Batroc in the comics is essentially a thief at best, and he has a strong code of honor that includes not harming innocent people. Here, he's a pirate leader fully willing to kill hostages and raid boats.
* BeardOfEvil: Batroc sports a goatee and mustache, though it's nowhere near as pronounced as his comic book DastardlyWhiplash mustache.
* BadassNormal: He's the first non-enhanced human in the series to be able to put up a decent fight against Captain America in hand-to-hand combat, and later manages to make an escape from Cap and Natasha make his way off the ''Lemurian Star'' despite being in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
* BloodKnight: After he lost his ship and his crew, he went back just to fight Captain America.
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames: Referred to by his real name rather than his alias from the comic "Batroc the Leaper".
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Every fight with the guards on the ship was a CurbStompBattle by Cap. Only when he gets to the last guy, their leader Batroc, does he find himself a challenge.
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: Batroc was ex-DGSE, with over 36 kill missions, before his commanding officers axed his career. He's also been issued a Red Notice by Interpol.[[note]][[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interpol_notice More or less an international arrest warrant]].[[/note]]
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Unlike his comic book counterpart, he doesn't wear a helmet and even goads Steve Rogers into removing his own.
* IKnowKarate: He practices savate, a French martial arts with lots of jumping kicks. In the comics this is where he gets his full name "Batroc the Leaper". In the film, however, his style resembles more UsefulNotes/{{Capoeira}}.
* LetsFightLikeGentlemen: Well, not exactly ''gentlemen'', but he does belittle Cap for using a helmet and a defensive weapon, prompting him to put them aside and even the playing field.
-->'''Batroc:''' ''<...I thought you were more than just a shield.>''\\
'''Steve:''' ''<Let's find out.>''
* LightningBruiser: Fast and strong enough to pose a challenge to Captain America.
* MistakenNationality: Some characters assume he's French, but he's actually Algerian.
* MisplacedAccent: Despite being Algerian, he sports Georges St-Pierre's native Quebecois accent. To put this in perspective, this is as out of place as, say, an English-speaking Egyptian with an American accent would be.
* RaceLift: Just plain French in the comics, Algerian in the movie. He's still said to be a veteran of French Intelligence, and portrayed by an actor who doesn't look remotely North African.
* RuthlessModernPirates: Batroc is more interested in getting his ransom from S.H.I.E.L.D., but his crew is openly vicious and ready to kill any hostages.
* StarterVillain: Serves as the main antagonist during the opening mission of ''The Winter Soldier'', before the film's main crisis begins.
* TemptingFate: He demands that Captain America put his shield away so that the fight is fairer. Cap does... and then starts fighting even better than beforehand.
* UnwittingPawn: He was hired by Fury himself in a move to get the USB MacGuffin off the boat under cover of rescuing the team.
* WorthyOpponent: Captain America sees him as one, even going so far as to not use his shield while fighting him to put them on more even ground.

->'''Portrayed By:''' Daniel Brühl
->'''Appearances:''' ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''

A former special ops colonel with a grudge against the Avengers.
----
* AdaptationalHeroism: The reveal that he's driven by [[spoiler:revenge for the death of his family]] makes him much more sympathetic than his outright villainous comic book counterpart. [[spoiler:He doesn't have ties to HYDRA, either.]]
* AdaptationalNationality: In the comics Helmut Zemo is German, but here he is [[spoiler:a Sokovian]].
* AdaptationalWimp: He never even attempts to fight the Avengers directly, whereas in the comics, he's able to hold his own against Captain America despite having no superpowers.
* TheBadGuyWins: Somewhat. [[spoiler:He get's incarcerated, but he accomplishes his main goal in dividing the Avengers and is content with this. Nobody of them ends up dead however and the potential for reunion is given.]]
* BigBad: The lead villain in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''.
* ColonelBadass: He used to be a Colonel [[spoiler:in the Sokovian Special Forces]] and he is one of the most effective foes the Avengers have faced.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He's been studying how Captain America, and by extension the rest of The Avengers, fight their battles, and realizes that no villains, however powerful they are, have ever defeated them in a fight. [[spoiler: So he manipulates them into fighting each other.]]
* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler: Once he has put Iron Man against Bucky and Cap, he decides to shoot himself with a gun. Black Panther prevents him from doing so in order to make him face justice.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: According to a set visit, he will have a bigger role in the MCU down the line.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Despite his profound hatred of the Avengers, [[spoiler:he refuses to unleash the other five Winter Soldiers, as they're worse than Bucky and would do untold damage to the world]].
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:His wife, father and son were crushed by Sokovia's debris when it fell from the skies.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He's a former [[spoiler:Sokovian Special Forces colonel]], but otherwise he's just a normal guy living his life. [[spoiler: The death of his family during the Battle of Sokovia launches him on a secret crusade against the Avengers, and he succeeds in dividing them apart, causing the most damage to them in a way that none of the previous villain has ever managed to achieve.]]
