* HeroStoleMyBike: Captain America feigns sickness to lure the unsuspecting driver out from the car before he steals it, twice. Subverted when he appears to steal a bike from a civilian during his and Sharon's escape from the Red Skull's thugs, but he throws down money towards the owner for compensation.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalHeroism: Downplayed- while Red Skull at no point displays any real positive qualities whatsoever, he's still far less utterly repulsive and vile than his comics counterpart. Not only his racism is greatly downplayed, he treats his daughter (even after her failure) with far greater tolerance than Comics Skull ever shows for his daughter Sin, he can at least act polite enough more often than his constantly sneering and insulting original source, and he's even given a sympathetic and tragic origin while his comics self always was rotten to the core.

* SherlockScan: Notably, it gives Captain America all the details needed for him to reach exactly the ''wrong'' conclusion. [[note]]He doesn't know that UsefulNotes/WorldWarII ended over four decades ago, and that owning a Japanese tape recorder would not at all be unusual for an American.[[/note]]

* MistakenForSpies: Captain America thinks that Sam Kowlawetz is a spy for the Japanese, because he has a tape recorder that was made in Japan.
** Or possibly for the Germans, because he's driving a car that was made in West Germany. (This is the first car he steals, under HeroStoleMyBike.)

* NotSoDifferent: Captain America and The Red Skull both got their powers as a result of the same research. Because of this, the Red Skull insists on referring to Captain America as his "American Brother".

-->'''Red Skull''': Assassination isn't worth the trouble. It took me two years to find Sirhan. Three to find Oswald. The King job alone cost me over twenty million dollars. What do we get for our pains? Saints. Martyrs to the cause.

* WickedCultured: The Skull can be awfully poetic and it appears he's a fan of classical music. Additionally, once he's in the present, [[ManOfWealthAndTaste he's never seen without a crisp suit and tie.]] Bonus points for hiding his megaton detonator in his piano.
