* CarCushion: Cap gets this treatment. It helps that he only fell about one story on to [[MadeOfIndestructium his shield]] and is empowered by [[SuperSerum the Super Soldier Serum]]. He still takes at least a couple of minutes to get going again; it ''really'' hurt.

* BeatTheCurseOutOfHim: "Cognitive recalibration. ''[pause]'' I hit you really hard on the head."

* BeatTheCurseOutOfHim: "Cognitive A solid blow to the head seems to reverse the mind control caused by Loki's staff, at least in the cases of [[spoiler:Hawkeye and Dr. Selvig.]] Black Widow, not wanting to take the risk that the trope isn't in effect, knocks [[spoiler:Hawkeye]] out cold just to be safe.

recalibration. ''[pause]'' I hit you really hard on the head."



-->'''Coulson:''' I watched you while you were sleeping. ({{beat}}) I mean, I was present when you were unconscious from the ice.

* BilingualBonus: At the party in Stuttgart, there are banners saying "Eroberung und Opferung" ("conquest and sacrifice").
** Also, the address of the location is the "Königsstraße" ("king's road").

* BorrowedBiometricBypass: In The Avengers (2012), Loki and his minions use a fancy piece of stolen S.H.I.E.L.D. tech that lets them scan someone's eye and turn it into a hologram good enough to fool a retina scanner. Loki probably didn't ''have'' to [[EyeScream jam it right into the poor man's eye socket though]]...

* AndMissionControlRejoiced: The controllers on the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier cheer when [[spoiler:Tony Stark captures the nuke bound for New York and instead sends it through the portal.]]



* AnnoyingArrows: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with [[spoiler:the brainwashing of Hawkeye. He retains his full destructive capability while doing his best to bring S.H.I.E.L.D. down, and he causes a lot of damage before he regains his senses.]] He also does quite a lot of damage to the invading Chitauri army.

* ApocalypseHow: Loki attempts a Class 1.

to:

* ApocalypseHow: Loki attempts a [[ApocalypseHow/Class1 Class 1.1]], meaning a lot of people are going to die, but civilization is still surviving in a reduced state.



* AttentionWhore: Tony Stark, good god. He's partly doing it to break the ice (and at one point, to implant a computer virus into S.H.I.E.L.D.'s network to find out what they're hiding from the Avengers), but he's also clearly reveling in his captive audience in order to show off and crack jokes nonstop.

* CerebusRetcon: Just as Senator Stern in ''Film/IronMan2'' was "revealed" to be [[spoiler:a member of HYDRA]] in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' brings back the World Security Councilman played by Creator/PowersBoothe and makes him [[spoiler:one of HYDRA's ''leaders'']]. It's not clear if his support of [[NukeEm a nuclear strike on Manhattan]] was intended to somehow serve an agenda or if he and the rest of the Council honestly thought this was the best call in a tough situation; but his pressure on Fury to adopt the "Phase Two" Tesseract weaponry definitely takes on a darker subtext.

:: The correct answer is, of course, all of the above! Furthermore, all the egos visible from space having to exist together in a single room. These issues have a very strong effect on the characters' volatile, overly-developed, wildly divergent, intra- and inter-personal conflict-ridden Type-A personalities and actions, too. In the words of WSC, they are "isolated and unstable". In the words of Loki, they are "lost creatures". In the words of Bruce Banner:

* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: Every single S.H.I.E.L.D. Quinjet we see throughout the film is painted grey on top (a camouflage shade called Dark Ghost Grey; very appropriate for a non-existent paramilitary organization), except for the one that delivers [[spoiler:[[BrainwashedAndCrazy Barton]]]] and his mercenaries to the helicarrier. [[spoiler:Barton]], or Loki, or somebody, took the time to have this particular Quinjet painted... BLACK. That should have tipped off the Hovercarrier air traffic controller, even if the whole "unscheduled arms and munitions" business didn't. Then during the assault, the loudspeaker announces that the intruders are wearing S.H.I.E.L.D. gear, which inverts this trope and makes them harder to take out.
