** Argubly subverted as Zola merely used Chester's offer to infiltrate the american government and secretly continue HYDRA, successfully converting numerous agents and even forcing SHIELD to shut down from being compromised, both literally and morally.



** Peggy gets her chance to save Cap's bacon when she shoots down a flamethrower-wielding enemy soldier who had a shield-less Cap on the ropes right after the above-mentioned scene.

* ChasteHero: Steve Rogers, even after becoming Captain America (see AManIsNotAVirgin below).

* ChasteHero: Steve Rogers, even after becoming Captain America (see AManIsNotAVirgin below).America.



* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted. Pre-transformation Steve Rogers is terribly intimidated by women (owing to his small stature), even afraid to ask girls to dance with him. His apprehension remains after receiving the Super-Soldier serum, even when women throw themselves at him. His brief macking with the secretary may very well be his first kiss.

* CompensatingForSomething: Not outright stated in the film, but according to the HYDRAmobile's designer, the car is "[[http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/digital/visual-effects/captain-america-gonzo-engineering-behind-red-skulls-monster-car over 25 feet long... much longer than anything you would consider a car, but he's a dictator, he wants to show his power]]." Yes. "Power."

* CoolCar: [[http://imageshack.us/f/842/17captainamerica.jpg/ Gaze upon the HYDRAmobile, and despair!]] And notice the look of glee on Zola's face when the Skull lets him drive. The RealLife car built for the film has [[AwesomeButImpractical the size of a bus, the weight of a truck and the maneuverability of an 18-wheeler truck]] -- and (apart from the one time with Zola) the Skull always drives it himself. It's never shown to be driven by a chauffeur.

* AnachronisticClue: Late in the film, Steve awakens in an unfamiliar room and hears a nearby radio playing the broadcast of a baseball game. A young woman in 1940s period clothing enters the room, and he demands answers from her, informing her that it can't be 1945 since the game on the radio was played in 1941 [[spoiler:and he knows this because he attended that game]]. He is likely also clued in because [[spoiler:she's wearing a haircut that didn't come into vogue before the mid-2000s and a style of bra (a foam-padded push-up bra) that didn't exist before the 1990s]].

* AGlitchInTheMatrix: When Steve Rogers wakes up in the hospital. He realizes that something is not right, as the radio is broadcasting a game he had attended himself. He breaks through the set and gets out to the street and discovers the truth that they intended to tell gradually: That he has been a HumanPopsicle for 70 years.
** Also, his S.H.I.E.L.D. handler's hairstyle is overtly wrong (American professional women in the 1940s did not wear their hair loose like that) and she's wearing a modern push-up bra (that is not properly fitted, so the edge of the cups can be clearly seen through her period blouse).

* AdaptationalBadass: Bucky Barnes starts out as much more of a {{Badass}} than he was in the comics [[spoiler:(pre-Winter Soldier, at least)]]. Instead of starting out as a KidSidekick like in Earth-616, he's a year ''older'' than Steve [[note]]in ''[[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier Winter Soldier]]'', a FreezeFrameBonus in the Smithsonian exhibit says that Bucky was born in 1917, while later in the same film [[spoiler:the computerized Arnim Zola]] mentions that Steve was born in 1918[[/note]], he starts out as a BadassNormal soldier (who's a hit with the ladies, to boot) and gets himself enlisted in the Army before Steve ever does. And instead of being Steve's spokesman/medic like in the UltimateUniverse, he's the sniper, coming to Steve's aid when his guard is down.

* ColonelBadass: Phillips. More like Colonel Jerkass, but hey, he's Creator/TommyLeeJones. 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' [[KilledMidSentence "cut off one head, two more will take its place"]] evil creed.
