* CentralTheme: Knowledge and secrets, as fitting for a spy thriller. [[spoiler:One particular secret ends up causing big problems in ''Civil War''.]]



** In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' [[spoiler:HYDRA's catchphrase of "Cut off one head, two more shall take its place"]] was largely treated as a joke. This movie shows that it was far from it and more true than anyone would have ever guessed after they have all but [[spoiler:taken over S.H.I.E.L.D.]]. Also, the whole business with how they captured Arnim Zola and he supposedly caved under Col. Phillips. [[spoiler:Zola did it all just to use S.H.I.E.L.D. to further HYDRA's agenda.]]

** [[spoiler:Brock Rumlow]] manages to survive a building collapse caused by a Helicarrier crash. RealityEnsues to a certain extent in that he is ''badly'' injured and very heavily burned.
** Black Widow gets shot in the shoulder, yet several hours later [[OnlyAFleshWound fights like nothing happened]].
* MagicFloppyDisk: [[spoiler:Zola's brain]] was uploaded to "two hundred thousand feet of databanks", with the ability to read and rewrite itself. You could feasibly pull this off in the 21[-[[superscript:st]]-] century with digital tape, but in the early Seventies when the mainframe was built it wouldn't have enough space to hold the estimated 2.5 petabytes for a [[spoiler:human brain]].

* MexicanStandoff: [[spoiler:After Steve announces that anyone in S.H.I.E.L.D. could actually be working for HYDRA,]] ''everybody'' has a gun pointed at someone else. Unsurprisingly, it ends in a BlastOut.

** [[spoiler:Alexander Pierce]] claims that part of the reason for his FaceHeelTurn was a reflection on Fury saying ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight. There was a hostage situation where Nick Fury's methods of cutting through political red tape and adopting an IDidWhatIHadToDo attitude ''[[TheExtremistWasRight worked]]'', where his own attempts at finding a diplomatic solution failed. This caused him to re-evaluate [[PeaceThroughSuperiorFirepower how best to accomplish]] his vision for [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans achieving world peace]].

** [[spoiler:Arnim Zola is the one who recreated HYDRA within S.H.I.E.L.D.,]] but he has a small role in this film and is only one part of [[spoiler:Project Insight]].
** [[spoiler:Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker,]] who appears in TheStinger, would count as well since it's implied he has the same level of leadership as [[spoiler:Pierce]].

** When Captain America, Sam, Black Widow, and Maria Hill begin their attack on S.H.I.E.L.D., did you notice that Black Widow is suddenly missing? No, she did not take a break: [[spoiler:she disguised herself as a member of the Council]].

* SpoilerCover: The Blu-Ray and DVD releases show the Winter Soldier unmasked right on the back cover, showing that he's [[spoiler:Bucky Barnes]]. This is hardly a revelation to comic fans, but might still come as a surprise to viewers who hadn't read the source material.

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: Thanks to the [[MemeticMutation meme in which people caption images of a person whispering into another person's ear]] with [[spoiler:"Hail HYDRA", even people who haven't seen the movie know that HYDRA is the bad guys]], and that's actually the [[TheReveal biggest reveal]] in the entire movie, if not the entire '''franchise.'''
