* ControlFreak: It's part of what makes him so effective at his job, but he's done a number of morally questionable things in service of it. [[spoiler: It's all but stated that he is the one who brought in The Red Skull in an effort to get his position at S.H.I.E.L.D. back.]]

* DirtyBusiness: He truly sees what his actions as unpleasant but necessary for the sake of national security and protecting the world from possible greater threats. The validity of his beliefs tends to range from being mostly justified given the situation or horribly misguided and self-indulgent in others.

* GoodIsNotNice: He might be on the side of good, but he is not only an unrepentant asshole, but someone who has done horrible, horrible things.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: He can commit some serious atrocities. Noted in Ultimate Power where his tampering with Reed Richards' probe help cost millions of lives on another world.

* KarmaHoudini: Nick never suffers any long-term consequences for his amoral actions and the collateral damage he helps cause for his own gain. He was over to authorities on an alternate world in the "Ultimate Power" arc, but later ended up working his way up to making his own S.H.I.E.L.D. organization on that world before he was called back for his help in stopping Magneto during the "Ultimatum" arc.

* ManipulativeBastard[=/=]GuileHero: Increasingly the former. Case in point, it's implied he lured the Red Skull out of hiding just so that the Avengers could be restarted, allowing him to eventually get his old job back. Nick did this again when he used Gregory Stark's scheme to use superhumans to overthrown anti-American governments to force his successor Carol Danvers into signing over his position as director back to him again.

* VetinariJobSecurity: Either by outside sources or because of his own manipulations, Nick always ends up in charge of S.H.I.E.L.D. or an influential US government organization controlling superhumans simply because his successors always end up being too incompetent or morally bankrupt to get the needed results. He's simply too good at his job to be left to retire or get rid of for good.

* CrazyPrepared: As he states, he's got a black belt in thinking ahead. It's why he has Wasp on the team, because you never know when you'll need a mutant on-team.

* {{Jerkass}}: Shows recurrent shades of this.

* {{Jerkass}}: Shows recurrent shades of this. He's much more abrasive, rude, politically incorrect, violent, and ruthless than the mainstream Steve Rodgers would choose to be.



* MyCountryRightOrWrong: He's fanatically loyal to the country as an ideal. He made it clear in his solo series against the Vietnam War Captain-America Frank Simpson where Simpson had defected from America because of its brutal actions towards the people of Vietnam that he has heard countless atrocities committed by America and still supports it anyway.

* MyCountryRightOrWrong: He's fanatically loyal to the country as an ideal.country, believing no atrocity or war isn't worth the price of the stability and safety of the nation. He made it clear in his solo series against the Vietnam War Captain-America Frank Simpson where Simpson had defected from America because of its brutal actions towards the people of Vietnam that he has heard countless atrocities committed by America and still supports it anyway.


Added DiffLines:

* WarIsHell: As much as he identifies himself as a war hero, he actually admits he despises people who glorify war and battle, calling it a horrible experience that he made himself proficient in so he could end it quickly as possible.

* InLoveWithYourCarnage: Implied to be the case with Betty towards the Hulk. She remarked to Bruce during his session of regretful sulking after he viciously ate Herr Kleiser as the Hulk how much she wanted to have a sexual conjugal visit with him after seeing satellite pictures of Bruce consuming Kleiser's intestines like an animal.

* HopeBringer: Cap is seen as this by many on his own team such as Tony Stark despite his consistent unpleasant behaviors. He was this for pretty much the majority of the American populace after helped prevent the United States from breaking apart and saved multiple people from the mechinations of Thor's evil son, Modi.

Added DiffLines:

* MayDecemberRomance: Has this with Wasp after her falling out with Hank Pym. Thoroughly deconstructed in that their age difference and generational gap causes them to be too disinterested and scornful of each other's lifestyles to the point Wasp decides to cheat on Cap with Hank because she found him easier to socialize with despite his past history of brutally abusing her.

Added DiffLines:

* RealMenLoveJesus: This Cap is much more religiously fervent than the Mainstream to the point of mentioning his faith in the Christian God during battle.

* EvilVersusEvil: Ultimate Nick Fury is notably darker than the original. A few feats including working with Ultimate Doctor Doom to tamper with one of Richard's probes, preferring to work with Ultimate Iron Man's more amoral older brother Gregory Stark, and secretly hiring the Ultimate version of the Red Skull to regain his position as the head of SHIELD (which he lost because of the aforementioned deal with Doom).
