* EveryoneHasStandards: Even they find Pierce's HYDRA scheme repellent. When Pierce gave one of them the hypothetical situation of their daughter being held at gunpoint by terrorists, about to be executed, and he could stop it with a flick of a switch, Pierce asks him if would. The member retorts, "Not if it was your switch."



* {{NGO}}: They don't seem to be accountable to any government - as they order a nuclear mission to New York City without consulting anyone. After S.H.I.E.L.D.'s collapse they were permanently disbanded and when S.H.I.E.L.D. was relegitimized the UN took overseeing S.H.I.E.L.D.

* CurbStompBattle: He ends up on the receiving end of a couple of these throughout the series.
** In late season 3, when Daisy is under Hives sway, she uses her powers to deliver one of these to him and is only stopped by May.
** In the midseason finale of season 5, after Kasius drinks the Odium and [[spoiler: kills Future Yo-Yo]], Mack squares off with him, and manages to hold his own for some time, but Kasius, being on the Odium, [[NoSell no-sells]] all of Macks attacks and eventually overpowers him, delivering a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown only stopped by the timely intervention of Simmons.
** In the season 6 finale, Mack takes on Sarge by himself [[spoiler: after Sarge had both delivered a fatal wound to May and unlocked his godlike potential, which was ''completely immune'' to point-blank quake blasts from Daisy]] and manages to fend for himself for some time strictly because Sarge makes absolutely no attempt to fight back, and once he does its with obvious minimal effort and he simply steamrolls over Mack until [[spoiler: Izels death distracts Sarge enough that Daisy, May and Mack are able to CombinationAttack him and kill him.]]


* NoodleIncident: According to Fury, the last time he trusted someone, he lost an eye. As it turns out, an alien AnimalisticAbomination that looks like a cat scratched it out, and then he just started ''lying'' about how he lost it to make himself sound cooler.

* AndStarring: Samuel L. Jackson gets the final "and" credit in all of the ''Avengers'' movies with the exception of ''Infinity War'', as well as in ''Iron Man 2'' and ''Captain America: The Winter Soldier''.



* OutOfFocus: Despite being a central figure in the early MCU, he was absent from every Phase 3 movie until he had a cameo in TheStinger of ''Avengers: Infinity War''. 2019, the last year of Phase 3, is when the game '''really''' changed, as Nick Fury has prominent roles in ''Captain Marvel'', ''Avengers: Endgame'', and ''Spider-Man: Far From Home''.

In ''The Winter Soldier'', he's '''furious''' that his old friend Alexander Pierce has been part of HYDRA for decades. The real kicker is Pierce is the one who made Fury in charge of S.H.I.E.L.D.

* EveryoneHasStandards: Mack is without question one of the nicest and sweetest guys in the series, if not the entire MCU. But even ''he'' has his limits. And when those said limits involve, say, [[{{Squick}} a virtual-reality simulation fantasy scenario where a digital duplicate of his best friend throws herself upon the player (read: Deke Shaw) for hugs and smooches]], he's ''not'' going to react well to it. If anything, he'll give TranquilFury a whole new meaning.
