This story contains examples of:

     Tropes #-F 

  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: Given their seemingly familiar interactions, Carol and Rhodey apparently knew each other before the Snap.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Tony loses his left arm in the final battle in one last Callback to the Running Gag of it being injured.
  • Arc Words: A few forms.
    • Avenge/Avenging/Avenged/Avenger: Finds multiple uses.
      • Natasha, Steve, and Thor all reference "Avenging them" in reference to the victims of Thanos.
      • The alternate Thanos talks about Steve's role in the world being solely to avenge people.
    • Whatever It Takes: Uttered by characters whose status quos will change massively in the story.
      • Clint, Rocket, Bruce, and the alternate Thanos die.
      • Steve passes the mantle of Captain America to Sam.
      • Strange passes the duties of the Sorcerer Supreme to Wanda.
      • Tony, like his arm, is cut off when saying it.
      • In the final line of dialogue of the story (Not including The Stingers), Wanda changes the phrase to something far more hopeful.
        Wanda: "Whatever it brings."
  • Bash Brothers: Thor and Beta Ray Bill. They even have their own group name, Oathbrothers.
  • Back from the Dead: Bruce Banner reverses the Snap at the cost of his own life.
  • Badass Boast: As usual for MCU related material.
    • The final showdown against Thanos is chock full of them.
      • Wanda gets one when the alternate Thanos tells her that he will be taking the Time and Reality Stones and calls her an irritating witch.
        Wanda: "I much prefer Sorcerer Supreme nowadays. And you won't get them without a fight."
      • T'Challa gets one immediately after Wanda's, pulled almost directly from a speech he gives to Doctor Doom in the comics.
        T'Challa: "Your reign is over today, Mad Titan. And it ends with us."
      • The alternate Thanos has one to Wanda after an offensive from the heroes.
        Alternate Thanos: "Your parlour tricks and cheap magic did not stop me when your teacher used them, and they will not stop me now."
      • Tony and the alternate Thanos have an exchange once the alternate Thanos believes he has claimed the Stones.
        Alternate Thanos: "You came close to victory, Stark. But close is not enough. I am inevitable."
        Stark reveals the Stones are in his remaining hand and not Thanos' Gauntlet.
        Tony: "Eitri put an enchantment on my suit allowing me to absorb the Stones from the Gauntlet. And you may be inevitable, but I… am Iron Man."
  • Battlecry: In the final battle, every major group of heroes shows up with a battle cry.
    • The Wakandans make use of both "Yibambe!" and "Wakanda Forever!"
    • Beta Ray Bill yells "For Korbin, for Asgard, and for Nidavellir!", rallying all three armies behind him.
    • Peter Quill calls back to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with "Show time, a-holes!"
    • Talos goes with "Skrull, fight as one and all!"
    • "Let's be the shield." is Nick Fury's chosen order as he emerges with Maria Hill, Sharon Carter, and Phil Coulson's team.
    • Doctor Strange invokes the Vishanti with "In the name of Agamotto!".
    • Ant-Man tops off the portal reinforcements with "We don't have a battle cry!"
    • And, of course, the final battle cry of the chapter comes courtesy of Captain America: Avengers, Assemble!
  • Big Damn Heroes: Two instances.
    • In Chapter 4: Hulk gets one when he finally shows up to help Thor, Beta Ray Bill, and Valkyrie with Ares.
    • In Chapter 20: The Avengers' army arrives to help Thor, Tony, Natasha, Hulk, and Steve against the forces of the alternate Thanos.
  • Break the Badass: Chapter 1 all features examples of Manly Tears from Hawkeye, Thor, and Captain America after they have all seen loved ones fall victim to Thanos' snap.
  • Broken Tears: Shuri, Nakia, and Ramonda share a moment of broken tears together when they find out that T'Challa has died, but unlike after the fight with Killmonger, this time it's real.
  • Closing Credits: As setting the standard for the MCFFU. According to Word of God, they're in the story to allow for new characters to have a named actor/actress and to include credits scenes.
  • Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: Averted hard.
    • Both the original and alternate Thanos refer to Carol as Captain Marvel, as does Peter Parker.
    • Clint is called Ronin by Akihiko.
    • Wanda refers to Pepper as Rescue when in the field.
    • For the sake of simplicity, every hero with a codename is referred to as such in the text.
  • Downer Beginning: Chapter 1 is a bit of a downer in its entirety, but even it starts with a massive downer: Clint Barton enters his home, and hears his daughter yell for him. He enters the kitchen to see his wife and sons dissolving into dust. He then hugs his daughter before she too is dusted.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Two notable examples.
    • Steve shaves his beard before the Reality Heist, positing that past him didn't have it. It's part of his speech about him not truly moving on.
    • During the Timeskip, Wanda returns to her natural hair colour and cuts it shorter to signify the passage of time and her increase in both self-confidence and magical power.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Tony, Thor, Natasha, and Hulk when they stand face to face against the alternate Thanos and his army.
    Thor: "Avengers, this is it."
  • Forging Scene: The Avengers left on Earth when the rest are lost in other realities travel to Nidavellir to have Eitri forge them weapons in the event something goes wrong. Eitri obliges and forges new weapons for all the Avengers, including remaking Mjolnir and giving Tony the means to steal the Stones from the alternate Thanos.
  • Forgot About His Powers: Thoroughly averted, specifically in relation to the alternate Thanos in the final battle. He uses all the Stones to shut down various powerhouses, especially Carol.

     Tropes G-M 

  • Loads and Loads of Characters: Even more than the movie, which already had a massive cast.
    • Expanded roles are given to Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, Carol Danvers, Wanda Maximoff, Vision, Peter Parker, Groot, Korg, Miek, Valkyrie, Okoye, Shuri, M'Baku, Loki, Heimdall, Cull Obsidian, and Eitri.
    • Previously existing characters are given appearances, with Talos, Goose, Pietro Maximoff, Ultron, Hela, Killmonger, Monica Rambeau, Mordo, Kaecilius, Maria Stark, and Ho Yinsen all getting cameos.
      • The Agents of SHIELD are even pulled in, with Sharon Carter, Phil Coulson, Daisy Johnson, Melinda May, Alphonso Mackenzie, and Robbie Reyes receiving a moment in the final battle. Audrey Nathan, Coulson's old cellist flame, makes an appearance at Stark's wedding.
    • Oodles of new characters are introduced in the form of Beta Ray Bill, Ares, Anubis, Marc Spector, Supergiant, Jocasta, Kevin Feige's Watcher Informant, and Victor von Doom.

     Tropes N-T 

  • Single Tear: Corvus Glaive sheds one after looking at a picture of himself and the rest of the Black Order playing with the young Gamora.
  • Thanatos Gambit: Strange made one of these. He put an enchantment on the Time Stone to ensure that himself and Wanda would fall victim to the snap so they could fight from within the Soul Stone, and to ensure that Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man wouldn't.
  • Time Skip: The heroes, with the exception of Wanda, Vision, Pepper, Korg, Miek, and Supergiant, end up stuck in the past. They return after three years.

     Tropes U-Z 

  • Unexpected Character: Eagle eyed viewers may have seen the build up to the appearances of Ho Yinsen, Pietro Maximoff, and the Agents of SHIELD, but who would have guessed that Victor von Doom would show up?
  • Unholy Matrimony: Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight had this before Proxima's death. It changes to Happily Married after their redemption.
