** The Asgardian's power is a mix of this and [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien sufficiently advanced technology]]. Thor even states that in Asgard, magic and science are the same thing.

* DutchAngle: Done a ''lot'', presumably to further emphasize the Asgardians' heights or that being on Midgard is just so darn ''weird'' for Thor. According to Kenneth Branagh's DVD commentary, this was done to create a look similar to comic book panel layouts.

* GoMadFromTheRevelation: Loki, when he discovers [[spoiler: that he's a Frost Giant.]] He was unstable to begin with, demonstrated when [[spoiler: he allowed a few Frost Giants into Asgard for "a bit of fun" (a plan to discredit Thor)]], but this tips him over the edge.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The ultimate fate of the The Destroyer and the Casket of Ancient Winters remains unexplored. Presumably S.H.I.E.L.D. took custody of the former while the latter is last seen in the Bifröst [[spoiler: before it was destroyed.]] In Film/TheAvengers it is revealed S.H.I.E.L.D. recovered the remains of the Destroyer and reverse engineered it.

* SwissArmyWeapon: Mjölnir can smash like a typical hammer, it can summon lightning bolts, it can be used as a PrecisionGuidedBoomerang, it can make you [[FlyingBrick fly]][[note]]technically, Thor never flies, but rather throws the hammer and ''holds on''[[/note]], it can deflect energy blasts from other Asgardian weaponry, and it can simply be used as an immovable weight. Odin also suggests it can be used to build things, but Thor never uses it for that purpose.
