** A very subtle one. In Natasha's EstablishingCharacterShot, she's apparently in someone's mercy, feeling threatened and vulnerable, only for her to reveal that this was exactly the position she wanted to be in to con information from the one who thinks he's in control. This is exactly the method she uses [[spoiler:on Loki to find out what he wanted on the Helicarrier]].

* FauxActionGirl: Exploited and subverted by Black Widow, who appears to have been beaten and cowed by the Russian mobsters. [[LampshadeHanging They even mock her supposed tough reputation]]. [[WoundedGazelleGambit However, this was all a play to get them to reveal information]]. Once she is tasked with a much more important mission she quickly breaks free and [[CurbStompBattle dispatches with them]].

** Also, the SHILED Helicarrier has a cargo hold full of HYDRA weapons and crates stamped with the HYDRA logo. One can wonder how many HYDRA ''items'' were present on board during the operation.

* GodwinsLaw: Invoked, appropriately enough, by Captain America, who compares Loki to man he dealt with "the last time I was in Germany." He may technically have been referring to Red Skull rather than Hitler but they were both Nazi and he could be referring to both of them.

* EqualOpportunityEvil: Loki's henchmen seem fairly diverse, at least racially. Where they're from is never specified though; Hawkeye just refers to them as enemies of S.H.I.E.L.D.

** Black Widow [[spoiler:has a battle of wits with Loki and uncovers his agenda while seemingly unfazed by Loki's HannibalLecture, but it ultimately does nothing to hinder Loki's EvilPlan, and it's later shown that Loki ''did'' get under her skin]].
** Coulson [[spoiler:is fatally stabbed by Loki, but bravely tells him that Loki is doomed to fail. As the latter tries to retort, Coulson shoots him through the wall]].
** Iron Man [[spoiler:likewise has a lecture battle with Loki, then is immune to his attacks. Both succeed, as Loki's {{plan}} follows through and Tony is only stalling, but Loki's VillainousBreakdown begins]].

* GoKartingWithBowser: As mentioned below, Tony pours himself a drink as he talks to Loki and even offers him one.

* GoKartingWithBowser: As mentioned below, Tony pours himself a drink as he talks to Loki and even offers him one. May be a slight subversion, as he seems to be using this as a cover to discreetly put on bracelets that match his Iron Man suit. We subsequently see that these allow the suit to 'lock-on' to him after Loki throws him out of the tower.

** Loki calls Black Widow a "mewling quim", which includes [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain archaic slang]] for the [[CountryMatters female anatomy]]. Though WordOfGod said it was a close call.
