** Horrifyingly, Tony wakes up while he the electromagnet to keep the shrapnel out of his heart is being grafted to him. He can only scream in agonizing pain before being put under hurried anaesthesia.

* The Ten Rings' invasion of Gulmira.

to:

* The Ten Rings' invasion of Gulmira.Gulmira, made all the more chilling by the fact that, while the Rings themselves are fictional, [[TruthInTelevision their actions aren't]]. Massacres like Gulmira happen in regions all over the world where extremism runs rampant.


* After Tony's attack on the Ten Rings' weapons depot, he gets engaged by a pair of USAF Raptors, and after an accidental collision, one of the pilots is forced to punch out - but his parachute doesn't deploy. If Tony hadn't gone after him, that pilot would have been conscious all the way down - and his wingman and the guys in the command center would have had to watch.

Added DiffLines:

** A minor subpoint, but while Stane is talking, you might notice that Tony is ''bleeding from one ear'' thanks to the gizmo that paralyzed him.

* Stane's paralyzing Tony and pulling out his arc reactor, all the while never dropping his AffablyEvil personality and casually telling him that he's going to murder [[LoveInterest Pepper]] before leaving Tony to die a slow and painful death of shrapnel in the heart.

** For some, this may fall into CatharsisFactor or NightmareRetardant.
* Stane gives quite a lot of this. He's always AffablyEvil, he often seems like he's acting in Tony's best interests, and yet he's an OmnicidalManiac by the end of the movie.
** The scene where Pepper and Coulson come to arrest Stane at Stark Industries, especially when Pepper is alone. She walks over to some chains, and we ''know'' Stane finished his Iron Monger suit not long ago. But we've never seen the full armor. And then the arc reactor lights up, and the POV camera moves up, and Pepper [[OhCrap begins to run.]] Cut to her and the agents pulling a [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere Screw This I'm Out Of Here,]] while ''something'' huge tears apart the lab behind them and chases them. It's chilling.

* The terrorist leader being left to the mercy of those he had been kidnapping and murdering.


* Here's one that you only realize in hindsight: it's revealed in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' that HYDRA has been active inside SHIELD this whole time. HYDRA said that accidents happen, and they engineered Howard Stark's death. Now think about Obadiah Stane and his motivations in this movie. The easiest way for HYDRA to set up a murder as an accident would be to have an inside man Howard Stark trusted. Add to that the fact that Obadiah is selling weapons to the Ten Rings and possibly lots of other terrorist organizations around the world, which is exactly the kind of thing HYDRA would do to sow disorder and fear and it's wholly possible that Stane was actually a mole for HYDRA the whole time.
