* ViewerFriendlyInterface: Most of the images inside the Iron Man suit's holographic interface are so large that they would obstruct Tony's view, display data he doesn't need at that time, and generally are there more to [[RuleOfCool look cool for the viewer]] than be useful to Tony.

However, it can at least partially be justified in that Tony designed the display himself, and Tony is (since [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]] doesn't exist in the MCU (yet)), one of the smartest guys in the world, we can assume that even though it looks like there's way too much stuff there, his mind works so much faster than ours that he ''can'' make use of all that input, and he specifically made it that way.

** In a deleted scene, Tony tries fending off his captors by picking a weapon off of the the fallen soldiers, only for a weapon ''he designed'' to jam on him.

* MauveShirt: The soldiers escorting Tony at the start of the film received a few fleeting minutes of characterization before they were wiped out by Stark's captors.

**Tony is implied, especially in the novelisation, to have had a very good relationship with his father. Subsequent movies in the MCU give him more daddy issues.

* EvilKnockoff [[spoiler:Stane builds the Iron Monger suit, a mass production model based off Tony's Mark 1 Iron Man suit. It's bigger, has more weapons, features flight and a targeting system and is expertly manufactured compared to the ramshackle Mark 1. However, it lacks some of the upgrades in the later Iron Man suits such as the ice protection. He also can't copy the arc reactor, having to steal Tony's to power it.]]

** For another example, the mobile robotic arm he built when he was a child behaves exactly like a faithful dog. During one of the climactic scenes, [[spoiler:Tony is dying, and needs to reach the spare arc reactor to put into his chest, but can't reach it. Tony crumples to the ground, about to die, when the robotic arm suddenly fetches it for him, and even whimpers like a dog concerned about his owner.]] Tony smiles and says "Good boy," and [[spoiler: takes the arc reactor]]. The same robotic arm - believed to be Dum-E -- also shows up in the sequel, although in a somewhat smaller role. Needless to say, he's the closest thing Tony has to an actual pet.

** Tony Stark builds an arc reactor to power the electromagnet that protects his heart, then upgrades the unit by having his secretary, Pepper, install a larger version in his chest. He tells her to throw the small unit away, but Pepper has it put in a display case for him. The miniature reactor becomes crucial later on, when [[spoiler: Obadiah Stane takes the larger reactor from Tony's chest while he's paralyzed, and he must rely on the smaller model to power his suit and his heart.]]

* InMediasRes: The movie begins a little while in with Tony in Afghanistan being escorted back to his plane. He jokes around with the troops [[spoiler: before his convoy is attacked. His guards are quickly slaughtered and when he tries to take cover, a missile produced by his company lands beside him and explodes in his face knocking him unconscious. Tony is then captured by the Ten Rings, and forced to work for them.]] The story then flashes back 36 hours to show Tony's personal life up till that point.

* 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.]]
