* MythologyGag:
** A very obscure one: the Black Widow's cover identity "Natalie Rushman" refers to "Nancy Rushman," a cover identity the comic-book version of the Widow used in an arc of ''Marvel Team-Up'' in the 1970s.
** Tony's bodyguard, Happy Hogan, is shown training Tony how to box. In the comics, Happy was a boxer before becoming Tony's bodyguard. Given Happy's fight with a security guard (which he wins) later in the film, this origin probably still applies.
** The broken semi-transparent Captain America shield looks like it comes from the Creator/RebBrown ''[[Film/CaptainAmerica1979 Captain]] [[Film/CaptainAmericaIIDeathTooSoon America]]'' films. [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-K_N0MjuLrOk/T6hSD6C6U-I/AAAAAAAAAz0/3a5D2GSq0Pw/s1600/reb+brown+cap!.jpg Here's a picture.]]
** Tony suggests perhaps he could be Secretary of Defense, a position he held in the comics for a little while in the early 2000s.
** Happy Hogan rescues Tony from Vanko on a racetrack. In TALES OF SUSPENSE #45, Happy rescuing Tony from a crashed race car is how the two characters first met.
** The map of metahuman activity that Nick Fury shows to Tony has markers in Africa and the middle of the Atlantic ocean. The marker in Africa is in reference to the ComicBook/BlackPanther, while fans have speculated that the one in the ocean is meant to hint at either [[ComicBook/SubMariner Namor]] or ComicBook/TheInhumans.
** Tony stores his armor in an attache case, which dates back to the very earliest issues of Iron Man.

* CanonDiscontinuity: The novelization of the movie claims that the new element Tony creates is vibranium. Needless to say, future MCU movies would establish that this is absolutely ''not'' the case.

** Pepper of all things, despite obviously being a highly capable and intelligent person, veers into this during the finale. [[spoiler:So the BigBad EvilGenius just sicced an army of {{Mecha Mook}}s on you and shot everything around you to hell. One of those mechs is lying disabled only a few steps away. That disabled mech's torso suddenly starts flashing a big red light, combined with [[ActionBomb a very audible accelerating countdown]]. What do you do? Why yes, of course you stay put and stare at the damn thing instead of hightailing it out of there.]] It's obviously played for drama so Tony can pull off another awesome rescue stunt.

* {{Badass}}: [[DiscussedTrope discussed]].
-->'''Tony:''' You HAVE a big gun, you are not THE big gun.
--> '''Rhodey:''' Tony, don't be jealous.
-->'''Tony:''' No, it's subtle, all the [[MoreDakka bells and whistles]].
--> '''Rhodey:''' Yeah, it's called being a badass.

** Tony having a suitcase that physically transforms into a suit of armor might be a callback to the 90's animated series, where Tony had one in the first season and would often suit up in stock footage (the second season abandoned that approach, and was a hell of a lot better).
* NeverTrustATrailer: As cute/funny as that whole "You Complete Me" scene was in the trailer, it ''never'' showed up in the film. Nor does the scene in which Tony lends Natasha one of the Iron Man gauntlets. And several others. Ironically, they did consistently show up in the film's novelization, albeit loosely interpreted.
