** During the Mark III fight in Gulmira, the Ten Rings militants [[GenreSavvy quickly realize]] that their weapons have absolutely no effect on Iron Man's armor, and turn their guns on their civilian hostages.

* ShirtlessScene: Aplenty. First we have Tony in the first during his "heart change" operation, then Creator/MickeyRourke in the second wearing nothing but underpants and sporting muscles and covered in tattoos.

* SmallNameBigEgo: Justin Hammer.Hammer likes to think of himself as a better version of Tony Stark, but he's actually far inferior.



* Creator/StanWinston: The genius behind the creation of Tony's battlesuits in the movies.



* ThouShallNotKill: Notably {{Averted}} in all three films. Within minutes (screentime) of Tony perfecting the Mark III, he takes out a small battalion of terrorists, including a manned tank, who were attacking civilians. He doesn't even TRY to use nonlethal force, and the experience doesn't seem to phase him later. Throughout the rest of the films, he has no moral dilemmas about killing the villains if there's no better/easier choice.

* {{Foil}}: The first two movies' villains are foils of Tony Stark, representing darker sides of his character, having his vices pushed UpToEleven or stripped of his redeeming qualities. [[spoiler:Obadiah Stane]] is a shrewd businessman like Tony, but is a completely immoral profiteer and [[MythologyGag ironmonger]] with no sense of honor or patriotism. Justin Hammer is a flamboyant narcissistic billionaire who shares Tony's taste for [[{{Jerkass}} douchebaggery]] and partying, but has [[CreativeSterility none of his genius]] or [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold charity]]. Whiplash is also a brilliant scientist who can build power armor in a shitty apartment and a son of a technology wizard, but has none of Tony's wealth or prestige that he envies so much; in addition, he seems to share Tony's [[VodkaDrunkenski drinking problem]]. He also doesn't really care about civilian casualties.\\
\\
[[TheDanza Jack]] is a foil to Pepper Potts. Both are assistants to industrialist magnates, who get put through some pretty crazy stuff. But in Pepper's case, the crazy stuff is actually for a good reason (saving Tony from Whiplash on the racetrack), while in Jack's case, the crazy stuff is just for the hell of it (being told to try to put a drone head on his own head like a helmet, when it obviously won't work). This has a great effect on how loyal they are.

* IntrepidReporter: Played with; Christine Everhart clearly ''wants'' to be this, but the fact that she ends up sleeping with Tony not long after self-righteously calling him out as the 'Merchant of Death' alone indicates that she's probably not as intrepid as she wants people to think. She generally comes off as being a bit smug and incompetent.
** Then again, she ''is'' the one to reveal to Tony that [[spoiler: his company is selling weapons to the villains.]]

* CoolGarage: Tony Stark's workshop houses a Saleen S7, a Tesla Roadster, an Audi R8, an AC Cobra and a hot rod. Oh, and a suit of power armor that is easily the most advanced piece of combat equipment ever made. He smashes one of them and sprays debris on another during his tests of the Iron Man suit. He somehow has ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's partially completed shield just ''lying around his workshop''[[note]]It's actually in one of Howard Stark's crates, which is lying around his garage[[/note]].[[spoiler: Making for yet another funny moment when he casually uses it to prop up part of his prismatic accelerator, as many a fanboy orgasm turned to horrible, horrible shock.]]
** Taken even further when Iron Man 3 reveals that Tony has put in a wine cellar beneath his garage, along with a ''[[http://sciencefiction.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Iron-Man-3-Armor-Designs-Iron-Legion.jpg freaking ARMORY]]'' built specifically for his Iron Man suits.

** Interestingly enough, while the BigBad of each film [[spoiler: does get killed, it's not by Tony's direct hand: after Pepper overloads the Stark Factory arc reactor, Stane gets electrocuted while in the War Monger suit and dies in the ensuing explosion; Vanko survives the opposing repulsor blast attack from Tony and Rhodes, but is blown up when the surrounding Hammerdrones self destruct, and Killian is killed by a well placed missile/repulsor blast combo, courtesy of Pepper.]]
