* AdaptationalBadass: Bucky Barnes starts out as much more of a badass than he did in the comics. 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 a talking computer 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.

** Played for dark laughs in the scene where Schmidt kills the inspecting Nazis. He immediately hits the first with his Cube-powered gun, but has a lot more trouble hitting his next target.

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: "Look, it's Captain America! Everyone, aim directly for his shield!". HYDRA troopers prove quite capable of killing regular soldiers, and his shield is a bullseye that would attract the eye, and would certainly distract enemy soldiers in combat situations. Without his shield they don't even seem to bother aiming at him, such as when nobody shoots him at close range after he charges into the middle of a pack of HYDRA troopers and starts throwing his shield instead of using it defensively. Subtly lampshaded and played for laughs in the scene where Schmidt kills the inspecting Nazis. He immediately hits the first with his Cube-powered gun, but has a lot more trouble hitting his next target.

* BlackAndWhiteMorality: This is one of the few Marvel movies to follow this morality exactly (in fact, aversions include this movie's own sequel). This is justified in-story through the SuperSerum that created both Captain America and his enemy the Red Skull, as it enhances people's true qualities -- good becomes great, bad becomes worse. Steve Rogers is an idealistic, friendly guy who just wants to do his duty for his country by fighting bad guys, and becomes a capable war hero. Red Skull is a bullying Nazi extremist too evil even for Hitler, is so narcissistic as to have a god complex, and becomes an OmnicidalManiac.

* YouCantGoHomeAGAIN: At the end of the film, Steve Rogers wakws up in the present day, approximitely 65 years after he crashed the Valkerie to prevent the bombing of New York City. Most of the landmarks of New York have changed and almost everyone he knew is dead. He can go back to Brooklyn, but he can never truly return home.

* CreatorCameo: Par for the course, Creator/StanLee, who shows up as a general at a medal ceremony. While he was not Cap's creator, he was responsible for reviving the character and bringing him into the Avengers (while teamed up with Jack Kirby, who ''was'' the creator). This marks Lee's first cameo in a Marvel film about a character he did not himself create.
