Added DiffLines:

** The big difference is that in the movie the Infinity Gauntlet is a ''tool'' of near-infinite power, while in the comics simply wearing it made the wearer themselves ''literally omnipotent.'' Consequently, Thanos while wearing the completed Gauntlet suffers from this trope in a big way, as he remains just a mortal (albeit an incredibly strong one) with a godlike weapon, rather than the PhysicalGod he became in the comics.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: The entire plan of Thanos completing all six Infinity Stones could have been avoided at the onset if our heroes destroyed even one stone in their possession. However, because of the Masters of the Mystic Arts' insistence of not breaking their oath to protect the Time Stone and The Avengers' hesitancy to destroy the Mind Stone without killing Vision eventually leads to Thanos succeeding.

* DarkerAndEdgier: This is the darkest MCU film in the Infinity Saga, with only its sequel ''Avengers: Endgame'' rivaling or coming close. The stakes are much higher than they ever were in previous films. Thanos finally makes his debut on Earth to assemble all the Infinity Stones and take over the Universe, showing how immensely powerful he is, along with just how the heroes are about to face their most life-threatening battle. Multiple characters on both sides are killed off throughout the entire film, and two characters are seen tortured. Even the credits reflect this, just being very plain serif fonts on a black background as opposed to the usual "fancy visual effects matching the motif of the movie" that the previous MCU films have used.

Thanos finally makes his debut on Earth to assemble all the Infinity Stones and take over the Universe, showing how immensely powerful he is, along with just how the heroes are about to face their most life-threatening battle.

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Per the Marvel norm, everybody can understand each other, species be damned. The only exception is Cull Obsidian, whose few short lines are in an alien language. And Groot, for obvious reasons. Thor lampshades this by jokingly saying he learned Groot thanks to an elective in school[[note]]He might understand Groot thanks to Allspeak, a language spoken by the Asgardians in the comics that enables them to understand any other language. It hasn't been confirmed for the MCU though[[/note]]. Steve plays it for laughs, thinking Groot is introducing himself.

* DrivenToMadness: The writers' statements implied that this is the case for Thanos' character. After witnessing his home world's destruction, Thanos became insane (Or was already insane from the start) and began his obsession of halving the population of the universe which he ostensibly claims is for the universe's good but in reality its just to prove himself correct.

Added DiffLines:

* AloneWithThePsycho: Once Gamora is recaptured by Thanos, this happens twice: first in his throne room, and then again on Vormir (Red Skull doesn't really count as a witness, since he doesn't care about preserving Gamora's life, plus he's at minimum a former psycho himself). In the latter situation, Gamora dies.
