* TheAestheticsOfTechnology: Asgard and Chitauri weaponry/engineering tends toward the sleek and shiny, while modern human technology favors functionality, though with clear embellishments like Cap's uniform and shield and the Iron Man armors. Form does not, however, follow function, as [[spoiler: S.H.I.E.L.D. shows with their boxy, gunmetal-black "Thorbuster" gun based on the remains of the Destroyer, an Asgard weapon.]]

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.

** Nick Fury, much like the other members of S.H.I.E.L.D., is a Type V that may have slid down to a type IV by the end of the movie. He's a ManipulativeBastard that [[spoiler:keeps secrets from the team and tried to use alien tech to build a WMD]], but ultimately he just wants to protect the Earth, and even ''he'' has limits on that, [[spoiler: doing everything he can to stop the World Security Council's nuclear missile destroying New York]].

* BoringInvincibleHero: Averted. Maria Hill is injured by a grenade and Fury is shot in the chest. He's wearing a bulletproof vest, but he's still winded. During the final battle, each of the Avengers is winded, wounded, or pinned down. [[spoiler: And [[CharacterDeath Coulson dies]]]].

** Bruce is hugely cynical throughout most of the movie, with notable lines like: "Well, this is all horrible," and "Oh no, this is much worse." In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a positive word leaving that guy's mouth. [[spoiler: He is, after all, always angry.]]

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: Right after Nick Fury uses an RPG to take out the Quinjet carrying the nuke that the WSC ordered against New York, a second jet takes off from a different catapult. Without thinking about it, he whips out his sidearm before realizing the bullets would do as much damage as a spitball from that distance.

** Averted with Captain America. He's the only one who's a straight-up hero. Though even there he's still killing bad guys, something most [[TheCape capes]] would sneer at, though unlike everyone else, he only kills when necessary, and most of the time when he fights he'll land KO punches rather than shoot them. This actually doesn't make him any better a team player than anyone else early on, [[TokenGoodTeammate due to his problems dealing with the numerous Anti-heroes on his team.]]

* DefeatMeansFriendship: After Thor spends a couple minutes beating the crap out of him before the two of them figure out they're on the same side, Tony brushes it off with a merry "No hard feelings, Film/PointBreak, [[WorthyOpponent you've got a mean swing]]" and cheerfully claps him on the shoulder.
