* Stark is regularly seen ridiculing a particular AI-controlled robotic assistant, often unsatisfied with its work and at one point threatening to donate it to a city college. However, when a dying Stark tries to reach for [[ChekhovsGun the old arc generator Potts saved for him]], "Dummy" loyally grabs it for him and hands it over. The following shot of the robot makes it look almost like a concerned face. As Stark reaches for it, he whispers "good boy". Cue the sympathetic "Aaawwwwww" from the crowd.

* The Collective Project, an organization that provides prosthetic bionic arms for children, designed an arm for Albert, a boy who was born with an underdeveloped right arm. Since Albert is a comic book fan, they modeled his new arm after Iron Man's armor. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEx5lmbCKtY Robert Downey Jr., in character as Tony Stark, gave Albert his new arm and helped him with a test run.]]
* Tony Stark asking for a cheeseburger when he arrives back in America is a funny gag, but apparently it has some reality subtext; according to Creator/RobertDowneyJr, he was driving in L.A. with quote "a whole trunk full of drugs" before stopping at a Burger King for a quick bite. Eating that burger gave him enough time to make him think "What the hell am I doing?" before heading to the ocean to dump all the drugs and clean himself up for good. Throwing in the Burger King gag was his way of nodding to the event that started his recovery.
* After ''Film/AvengersEndgame'' premiered, [[https://twitter.com/malihaness/status/1126128474392006657 a Twitter user noted how Yinsen was a favorable portrayal of a Muslim or Middle Eastern character in Hollywood]], especially given the severe stigma towards Muslims and Middle Easterners alike since the September 11th attacks.

* From the video game adaptation, when Tony is testing out the Mark 2 and successfully flies with it:
-->'''Tony''': Yinsen would've ''loved'' this.

** More likely Pepper. In the extended opening, Tony sees Rhodey trying to fight off the attackers and getting knocked out.

* When Tony enters a legal no-fly zone and [[NiceJobBreakingItHero ends up sending a man plummeting to the ground with a jammed parachute]], Rhodey's superior reasonably refuses to rescind his order for the unknown object to be shot down. Then, ignoring the risk to himself, Tony saves the man, and despite still being furious, the officer's so relieved that the other man is going to be okay that he doesn't continue trying to have Tony shot down. The way everyone in the room cheers when Tony gets the parachute un-jammed is also heartwarming.
