** The sick patients Banner had been treating when Natasha recruited him aren't mentioned again, for all that losing their doctor surely reduced their chances of recovery. One would think S.H.I.E.L.D. could at least spare them some antibiotics.

* UseYourHead: Iron Man tries this in his battle against Thor. Key word: "Tries." Fully suited, he blasts Thor with a headbutt, who doesn't even flinch in slight discomfort, before returning the favor, bare forehead vs. reinforced steel. And the former wins handily -- apparently, Asgardian skulls are MadeOfIndestructium.

* RealityEnsues:
** Black Widow is all sorts of badass, but she's savvy enough to know how well she'd fare if Banner turns into the Hulk and she happens to be the closest target for his rage. When it happens, she's visibly terrified and doesn't try to fight him, instead resorting to hiding. When he catches up to her, a single swipe is enough to stun her long enough for him to crush her, and it would've happened if Thor hadn't intervened.
** Despite being in a superhero movie, the team fighting an full army is treated with a fair amount of realism. The cliché of a dozen enemies landing a single hit is deconstructed when every member slows down from injuries and exhaustion:
*** The most human member ComicBook/BlackWidow slows down first and decides to do something else to stop the army.
*** ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} runs out of his trademark {{Trick Arrow}}s at one point and is nearly killed. He is also shown having to scavenge and collect arrows he's already fired in order to remain useful in the fight, as well as the effects of smashing through a hard glass window and landing on the shards of broken glass.
*** ComicBook/IronMan runs out of weapons outside of his repulsors and gets swarmed.
*** ComicBook/CaptainAmerica is injured from fight after fight and it's pretty obvious that if they had to battle for a couple more minutes, they wouldn't have held out.
*** [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]] himself is being shown overwhelmed by the Chitauri as they focus all their firepower on him and he gets less smash-happy as it goes on and the hits pile up.
*** The only one who doesn't appear to be affected by all the fighting is [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]], [[JustifiedTrope who is a god]].
** TheStinger for the movie also shows something that we rarely get to see in anything superhero-y: [[spoiler:the exhausted Avengers sitting around the ruins of a schwarma joint, wolfing down food in weary silence]].
** After the big battle when the various screens are showing people's reactions to the Avengers, one screen shows a memorial service being held for those who died in the attack. What, you think no one at all got hurt when the aliens invaded? This becomes one of the driving forces for the main conflict in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', as after the events of this film and ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', governments of other countries want restrictions for the Avengers.

* YoureNothingWithoutYourPhlebotinum: Iron Man and Captain America trade these:
** Steve Rogers sneers at Stark, "Big man in a [[PoweredArmour suit of armor]]. Take that away and what are you?" Stark immediately responds, "A genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist." Rogers then immediately shoots down Stark's smug reply by pointing out he knew plenty of better men who had none of that. However, the question of whether Stark has the heart of a hero is not concluded until the finale.
** Stark eventually returns the favor by telling Captain America, "Everything special about you came [[SuperSerum from a bottle]]," implying that Captain America hasn't really earned his spot among the team like the rest have.

* VichyEarth: Loki believes he and his Chitauri army will be the bringers of such a regime. Tony Stark, however, does not agree.
* ViewerFriendlyInterface: The S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier has a few giant vertically-mounted touchscreens for Fury and Hill to use, which feature giant spinning holograms of the Helicarrier, Earth, or just some moving wiggly lines. Background drones get keyboards and joysticks on their machines. The "Captain's" screens are specifically designed for a person with normal eyesight, which is lampshaded by Tony Stark when he covers one eye and tries to see all the screens around him and then asks how Nick Fury can see them with just one eye. (He turns, according to Maria Hill.)
* VillainOpeningScene: The movie opens with a brief, ominous scene of The Other giving Loki his scepter and musing about how they will TakeOverTheWorld and "The humans? What can they do but burn?"
