* WillfullyWeak: In ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''. He's certainly the most powerful member of Team Iron Man, but his [[AllLovingHero moral beliefs]] mean he has no desire to take a life or hurt anyone. As a result, most of his contributions in the big battle are support. The one time he cuts loose -- ''accidentally'', at that -- he nearly kills Sam and winds up one-shotting one of his own teammates.

Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: Rather than using micro-missiles, repulsors, lasers, glowing melee weapons, or other futuristic tech like Tony, Rhodes settles with strapping a big [[MoreDakka 7.62mm minigun]] on his back (replaced with what appears to be a 20mm HE cannon in later films) and a pair of 5.56mm rifles on his wrists. He's no less effective for it. This is best shown in ''Infinity War'' where he alone racks up more kills than the entire Wakandan army simply by dropping a lot of big explosives on the Outriders and pouring automatic fire at a choke point.


** '''The''' most powerful Avenger offensively (rivaling Thor in ''Infinity War'' and Captain Marvel), but also the weakest defensively (not including her power to shield herself).

** '''The''' most powerful Avenger offensively (rivaling Thor in ''Infinity War'' and Captain Marvel), but also the weakest defensively (not including her power to shield herself). This is established right from her first fight scene, where she incapacitates Thor but then gets taken down with ease by Hawkeye tasing her.


* HiddenDepths: He's apparently quite the movie buff, listing a bunch of scifi movies in an attempt to explain his (mistaken), ideas of the nature of time travel in ''Endgame.''

** When Nebula begins to walk through the chamber on Morab to get the Orb, Rhodey tries to stop her, thinking the place is boobytrapped a la ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.



* BroughtDownToBadass: In ''3''. He's stripped of his suit, and winds up on an oil tanker armed with only a pistol against Extremis-empowered soldiers. He proceeds to go and get his suit back and rescue the President.

He proceeds to go and get his suit back and rescue the President. It’s worth noting that both he and Tony are without their armor in this situation with Rhodey doing most of the heavy lifting in their fight with AIM until the House Party arrives.



* {{Foil}}: To Falcon for ''Civil War''. Both are former airmen who serve as the main partners to Tony and Cap respectively, unquestioningly backing their friend when sides get drawn.



** He spends a good amount of ''Endgame'' trolling Thor with some side jabs thrown at Scott and 2014!Quill for good measure.



** The last thing he tells Hawkeye and Black Widow before they depart for Vormir is to “watch each others’ six.”



* OddFriendship: By ''Endgame'', he's formed a friendship with, of all people, [[spoiler:Nebula]]. They get partnered up in the [[spoiler:Time Heist]], she calls him by his nickname, and he sympathizes with her condition and compares it to his own.

* WorldsStrongestWoman: Aside from Captain Marvel (and, given Wanda's [[UnskilledButStrong general lack of skill]], she may even have the potential to be stronger), she is bar-none the most powerful known hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While her lack of training and emotional volatility often limit her effectiveness, she is capable of vast-scale destruction with just a little bit of focus. To put it into perspective, in ''Endgame'', she [[spoiler:absolutely ''crushed'' Thanos and was seconds away from killing him when he ordered an indiscriminate bombardment just to get her away from him, and had she not felt like making him suffer, she probably could have killed him even faster]].

* WorldsStrongestWoman: Aside from Captain Marvel (and, given Wanda's [[UnskilledButStrong general lack of skill]], she may even have the potential to be stronger), she She is bar-none the most powerful unaided known hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While her lack of training and emotional volatility often limit her effectiveness, she is capable of vast-scale destruction with just a little bit of focus. To put it into perspective, in ''Endgame'', she [[spoiler:absolutely ''crushed'' Thanos and was seconds away from killing him when he ordered an indiscriminate bombardment just to get her away from him, and had she not felt like making him suffer, she probably could have killed him even faster]]. The only one that comes close to match her, also on her own without any tools, is Captain Marvel (perhaps not coincidentally, the only other being whose powers come from an infinity stone), and even then, Carol was already a military veteran by the time she got her powers and has clearly fully mastered them. Wanda, on the other hand, still has room to learn, and in fact still fears some of her abilities, particularly her telepathy.


* SadisticChoice: In ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'', she has to choose between [[spoiler:killing her loved one, Vision to destroy the Soul Stone and allowing Thanos to get the stone and wipe out half the universe. She ultimately [[KillTheOnesYouLove Kills the One She Loves]], but Thanos uses the Time stone to undo this choice and rips the Soul Stone from Vision's forehead, killing him anyway. And then he performs his BadassFingersnap]].

Added DiffLines:

** {{Downplayed}} by ''Infinity War'', where she's still the most physically fragile of the Avengers, but has improved to the point that she can hold her own (and eventually win) in a close-quarters brawl with Proxima Midnight. [[spoiler: Taken even further in ''Endgame'', where her telekinesis enables her to win a contest of brute strength against ''Thanos'', something neither Hulk nor Thor could accomplish before.]]
