* TheReveal:
** The true master of the Chitauri is [[spoiler:ComicBook/{{Thanos}} the mad titan]].
** Banner's secret for how he's avoided getting angry for so long: [[spoiler:he hasn't. He's ''always'' angry, he's just made peace with his anger enough to avoid Hulking out. Until he ''needs'' to.]]

* RewatchBonus: The World Security Council's decision to nuke New York makes far more sense [[spoiler: after watching ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' with the revelation that it and SHIELD are both heavily infiltrated by Hydra. Destroying a major city in a seemingly justifiable action like that would have played into their long-term goals quite well]].

** Inverted during Natasha's chair-bound fight scene. When Agent Coulson calls her, she says, "Let me put you on hold." She then proceeds to fight Russian thugs, accompanied by racing, staccato music, When the scene switches to Coulson listening to the fight, the music continues, sounding like (peculiar) on-hold music.

* TheStraightAndArrowPath: While Hawkeye does have a service handgun, he spends most of the time firing arrows.
* StrangerInAFamiliarLand: Steve Rogers tells Fury that he doubts anything they're about to face will surprise him after all the strange things the 21st century has already thrown at him. It doesn't help that, this being a Joss Whedon script, people keep making [[PopCulturalOsmosisFailure pop-culture references he doesn't understand]]. (He does eventually get a small victory when he [[Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz understands a reference]] that Thor doesn't.)
* [[TraumaCongaLine Stress Conga Line]]: It took quite a bit for Loki to get Banner to Hulk out. Being more or less drafted into S.H.I.E.L.D, shoved onto a flying helicarrier (Banner hates submarines and planes alike), getting into a shouting match with the other Avengers, picking up [[EvilIsNotAToy Loki's scepter]], and then banging his head on a wall when the Helicarrier lurches from an explosion eventually does him in.

* TakeThat: Possibly. Coulson's "I watched you while you were sleeping" line to Captain Steve Rogers is possibly a TakeThat to ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''.

* TrojanPrisoner:
** It was strongly [[ImpliedTrope implied]] that Black Widow deliberately let herself get captured by the Russian officer early in the film in order to trick him into confessing what he was intending to do before she was forced to abort the operation thanks in part to Loki's arrival.
** Loki [[spoiler:allowed himself to be captured on so he could get his scepter inside the Helicarrier, which supernaturally encouraged the Avengers to start arguing with each other, thus setting up Bruce Banner to go Hulk and smash everything. The spear also allowed Hawkeye to trace the Helicarrier's location so he could disable it and rescue Loki; you can see a readout of the spear on the Quinjet's console.]]



** Arguably, Bruce Banner. The look on his face when he says [[spoiler:"I'm always angry,"]] shows what a burden "the other guy" is on his life. There's also the beautifully subtle moment when he says to Black Widow "I don't every time get what I want," and gently rocks an old baby cradle.

*** ''Series/Daredevil2015'' shows that Wilson Fisk profited from bid-rigging on reconstruction contracts for damage sustained to Hell's Kitchen.
*** ''Series/JessicaJones2015'' shows that some people have developed prejudiced fears of 'gifted' people.
*** ''Series/LukeCage2016'' shows that Hammer Industries has used alien metal from the Chitauri to engineer the Judas bullet.
*** ''Series/IronFist2017'' shows that a number of Bakuto's recruits into the Hand were teens who were orphaned in the invasion.

** 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.
