* He has had only two video games on his own: ''Captain America in: The Doom Tube of Dr. Megalomann'' (1987) on the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64 and ''[[VideoGame/CaptainAmericaSuperSoldier Captain America: Super Soldier]]'' on next-gen consoles, but has featured alongside other heroes quite often, such as the arcade BeatEmUp ''VideoGame/CaptainAmericaAndTheAvengers'', the FightingGame ''Avengers in Galactic Storm'' (with a different set of Avengers), and of course most of [[CapcomVsWhatever Capcom's Marvel Fighting Games]], the ''VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance'' games, and ''VideoGame/MarvelAvengersAlliance''.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: After the first appearance, Timely Comics was prompted by [[ArchieComics MLJ Comics]] to change Cap's shield from the triangular shape to the discus one. Years later, this change of shields was {{retcon}}ned as being presented as a new weapon to Cap by President UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt himself.

* HumbleHero: Part of the point of him. He wasn't anything too special before he got the Super Soldier Serum, and he's pointed out he wasn't ''supposed'' to be unique, just the first of many. His humility is one of the reasons he's the embodiment of the American Dream: he's a nobody who became a somebody, and he's eternally thankful for it. Perhaps best summed up by the folloing exchange from ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'':

* RealityWarper: [[spoiler:In a meta-loophole, Marvel was actually telling the complete and honest truth with the "revelation" that Cap had always been a member of Hydra and was NotBrainwashed. The Red Skull had managed to convince a CosmicEntity named Kobik (who has the appearance, personality, and naïvete of a little girl) to alter reality and change history to make this true. (The Skull couldn't keep the façade for long though, and Kobik eventually put reality back to how it was.)]]

** The Fighting American, ironically, was originally created by Kirby and Simon for Harvey Comics, as a ''[[SelfParody parody]]'' of Captain America type characters. Leifeld either missed the irony or [[TheyJustDidntCare didn't care]] and quite literally continued telling [[ComicBook/HeroesReborn his Captain America story]] with the character.

* BrooklynRage: Subverted on the "rage" part as he's the nicest, most polite guy from Brooklyn you'll ever meet. Except if he finds out you're trying to kill people or bully the innocent, at which point he's gonna use all his strength and skills to stop you. And he'll still try to talk you out of it with a polite lecture even as he's beating the crap out of you.

%% Please, await to read the entire storyline before decide to put or remove this trope.
%%* EvilAllAlong:[[spoiler: ''Captain America: Steve Rogers'' reveals ''he was '''[[DeepCoverAgent always]]''' a HYDRA agent'' due to his mother being "influenced" by a woman who belonged to a proto-HYRDA organization who helped her flee her abusive husband. Word of God(s) is this the real Steve Rogers and not a clone/copy, he isn't acting or under mind-control and this isn't something "that will be over in six months".]]
