I had noticed that the only MCU Thor respect threads lacked new feats. So I decided I would make one myself. This is my first respect thread so sorry if its not great.
Edit: Several people have brought up feats that I hadn't remembered. But I want to call particular notice to @theycallmebt who has provided this RT with a great number of feats that I hadn't considered. And gone as far as to put them in gif's making my job a lot easier.

Bulrushes Hulk through a wall.
Overturns a large table.
Thor easily lands on the ground with enough force to damage it.
Thor's legs are strong enough to damage concrete by simply jumping into the air.
Thor busts open the cockpit of a space ship and throws the pilot out.
Here we see Thor very easily utilize Hulk's war hammer.
This may not seem impressive but that War hammer is massive. And real world steel weighs 7850 kg per cubic meter. This here was clearly stronger and denser than steel so it probably weighed a number of tons. And Thor was casually using that like it was a regular weapon.
Thor overpowers five of Surtur's fire demons at once.
Thor forces open the mouth of a dragon.
Effortlessly tears Iron Man's face plate off as if it weren't attached.
Thor throws an Iron Legion bot through a metal railing with enough force to brake pieces of the robot off.
Thor easily tears an Ultron bot's spine out.
Moving on to some of his most impressive strength feats.
Here Thor tears a part of an alien space ship off and than throws it at the engines of the space ship hard enough to cause the ship to crash.
Thor is strong enough to casually throw a women hundreds of meters upwards and than proceed to carry a car up to the bridge.
Thor throws an alien an incredible distance effortlessly.
Here, Thor is shown to be capable of breaking out of 10+ of Surtur's chains that were wrapped around his body.
What makes this an insane strength feat is that this dragon, while thrusting with all its might struggled greatly to break out of one of such chains. And it failed to do so for about a minute and a half.
This being a dragon that had the strength to easily break through large amounts of rock/stone.
But not just that. As you can hear in the video and is confirmed in the script, while tunneling through the rock this dragon was shaking the ground like an earthquake.
It was also able to propel its body to fly extremely fast in order to catch up to Thor.
Essentially, Thor while in a bad constricted position, could easily burst out of approximately 10+ chains instantly, whereas despite its immense strength and power this dragon while thrusting against it took about a minute and a half to break a single chain. That is an extreme level of physicality on Thor's part. It makes him much more than a dozen times as strong as this dragon.
Here Thor casually crushes Iron Man's armor.
There are a couple of important things to note.
1. Thor was likely weakened at this time due to the dark energy Odin used to teleport Thor to earth.
2. This Iron Man suit was so incredibly durable that it could survive being grinded up in the Helicarrier.
Yet Thor crushed it casually while weakened.
Thor can stop a punch from the Hulk.
It's not totally clear but here he seems as if he might be preforming a Suplex on the Hulk. Make of this what you will but I wanted to include it.
At the very least it shows that Thor can put Hulk in a hold.
Here is one of Thor's most impressive strength feats. Where he holds open the Iris of Nidavellir.
Mind you said Iris is massive.
And Thor could move it and hold it open for an extended period of time while being burnt by a star.
Here is what is likely Thor's best strength feat. Where he throws Rocket's ship and moves the one of the massive rings of Nidavellir as anchor. Therefore reigniting the star. I want to dwell on this feat for some time and go over why it's so impressive. First we have him spin around the space ship with ease as he builds up momentoum.
He than throws the ship and as it flies he easily places his arm and than feet into the ground tearing apart massive amounts of metal.
Next and most impressively he manages to stop at the edge of the ring and braces against Rocket's ship with such force that he moves the ring under his feet, breaking the ice and reigniting the star.
While there has been some debate over whether or not there was gravity near these rings it's clear that there was as evidenced by the fact that Thor fell 10+ feet onto these rings in about 2 seconds.
There has also been some confusion over how much of this feat is Thor's strength due to the factor of Rocket's ship. However while Rocket's ship is moving the rings Thor himself is resisting and checking the power of Rocket's ship so that the rings move.
It is literally just Tug of war physics. One side is pulling (Pod) and the other side is trying not to get pulled (Thor). If they apply equal force in opposite directions then they remain stationary. Unless the ground beneath them (Thor's anchor) gives way(the Rings)thus allowing motion to occur.
So Thor still has to be applying the strength in this scene. Furthermore Rocket's ship didn't have enough power to move the rings itself without help from Thor. As stated by Rocket himself when talking discussing his pod
I don't think you get the scientifics here. These rings are gigantic. You want to get them moving, you're gonna need something a lot bigger to yank em lose.
To which Thor responded.
Leave that to me.
Thor had to throw it in the first place. Mind you this is a space craft capable off interstellar travel. Able to traverse significant portions of the galaxy in very short periods of time. A space craft with extreme force. Yet it could not move these rings with just its own power.
Now to go over just how massive these rings are you can see here that they completely dwarf Rocket's ship to the point it is a literal dot of light in comparison.
Another thing that shows you how large these rings are is a size comparison between the Iris of Nidallier and the rings. Said Iris is this massive. Making Thor a dot and Rocket's ship minuscule in comparison.
Yet these rings are so massive that the Iris is completely dwarfed by them and not even visible in this image.
Greg Steele, the VFX supervisor of the company that did the Nidavellir scenes also described its size. Stating it's the size of a small moon Link.
It’s this whole Rube Goldberg-type of machine that we had to get going. It had to be extremely high resolution and working either a foot away from the surface to miles and miles away. It’s the size of a small moon.”
I may have dwelt on this feat for a long time but I just want to nail in how impressive this is. Thor moved an incredibly massive object with his strength. The fact that it was in space or that Thor was acting as the anchor in this scene does not change that its an extremely impressive showing of physical strength. I'd argue easily the best in the MCU up to this point.
Thor is also able to use his strength in the form of super leaps.
Here he jumps up to a space ship.
He is able to jump up over opponents.
Here if you watch in the top right corner of the Gif Thor is performing a significant super leap from one ship to the other.
I want to highlight where Thor is when he jumps just so everyone catches it.
Thor is able to jump all the way from the Asgardian palace to well onto the Bifrost Bridge.
Here he jumps hundreds of feet from Rocket's ship to the Iris of Nidavellir.
Speed(Reactions and Combat)
Thor is often regarded as slow but his capabilities in this category are not as low as many think.
Thor consistently reacts to energy blasts.
Here we see him block Chitauri fire.
Here he reacts to Loki's scepter blast.
Just so you get an idea of how fast this is Loki's scepter blast could reach cloud level in about 1 second.
Thor deflects a Ultron bot blaster without looking.
Here he reacts to a Hydra Soldier's blast.
What makes this impressive is that these blasts have been shown in comparison to bullets and they move at the same speed.
Thor blocks attacks from the Destroyer.
It's important to note that the Destroyer's beam travels the distance to Thor almost instantly.
Here we see Thor react to Malekith's Aether tendrils which considering the aura around them, seem as if they may be traveling at speeds exceeding sound.
Here Thor reacts to a bullrush from Vision.
Thor easily reacts to a bullrush from an Iron Legion drone.
Thor reacts to Hela's blades.
Now this feat is arguably incredible because Hela's blades can travel insane distances in a short time span.
It has been confirmed That Surtur's height varied from 800 meters after he emerged to 4 kilometers when he destroyed Asgard.
Just judging visually it is clear that the distance between Hela and Surtur in this scene is greater than his height. Which means that Hela's blades where likely traveling multiple kilometers in merely a second or so. That would put them above most bullets in speed.
Thor is fast enough to consistently outmaneuver the Hulk in combat(also a skill feat).
Kinda a mixture of a reaction and a combat speed feat. Here Thor reacts to a massive blitzing Jotunheim beast and manages to get his whole body out of the way.
Here Thor moves out of the way of a jumping Hulk at the last second.
Here Thor is shown to move in Quicksilver's perception while the other Avengers are frozen
As you can see all the other Avengers are frozen including Iron Man mid flight.
Thor latter saw Quicksilver as he was running and threw his hammer at him.
This is a deleted scene and is not cannon but I also wanted to note it as it was likely meant to show the characters general capabilities.
Thor reacts to Vision's mind Gem Blast.
It is important to note that Vision's blasts have been calculated at hypersonic speeds.
Mjolnir Thor's former hammer granted him a number of abilities.
Mjolnir grants Thor the ability to fly at extreme speeds.
Here Thor takes off and travels across a significant portion of the Bifrost bridge in less than a second.
Thor travels across the city of Asgard in mere seconds.
If you listen to the video you can hear that his flight creates a noise identical to aircraft moving through the air at high speeds.
In Thor 1 we also see Thor fly across a significant portion of the Bifrost Bridge and the Asgardian city at high speeds.
All three of these feats are extremely impressive because of how large the Asgardian city and the Bifrost bridge are as you can see here.
And this image only shows a small portion of it. Thor traveled across far more.
Thor takes off at insane speeds and at the end he even seemed to move so fast he created a mach cone around Mjolnir.
Here Thor flies fast enough to save Loki from the gravitational force of a black hole grenade.
Here he uses his flight to travel a great distance and blitzes a massive beast.
It should be considered that this beast was durable enough to withstand running through large amounts Jotunheim ice.
Thor blitzes Loki out of the Bifrost building.
Thor blitzes a tank so fast he appears as a blur.
Here Thor blitzes Malekith at incredible speeds
Thor can spin Mjolnir at incredible speeds and he uses this ability in different ways.
Here Thor spins Mjolnir with such force that it knocks up ice shards with enough force to kill or KO Frost giants.
Thor creates shield that protect him from fire demons.
Thor makes a shield powerful enough to stop Surtur's fire.
Mjolnir can fly itself and be used independently of Thor.
Mjolnir can travel at incredible speeds. Here you see when it is sent back to Earth while Thor was on another planet. It tries to return to Thor and it reaches into space in about a second.
And here you see him call it from way into space and it reached back to earth in 2-3 seconds.
With Mjolnir Thor has shown the ability to summon his armor from lightning.
In the first Thor film you see him do this with a massive lightning bolt when Mjolnir returned to him after deeming him worthy.
In Avengers you can see him doing this again as he summons a tornado and lightning and restores his armor.
In Ragnarok he did it very casually in a split second changing from human clothes to his armor. And changing Mjolnir from its umbrella form back to Mjolnir.
Said armor seems to be as durable as Thor since it has withstood virtually everything he does such as the Sokovia explosion, Aether storm and multiple hits from Hulk and other superhumans.
It is also shown to be bulletproof. As you can see here a Hydra soldier shoots Thor yet it does nothing.
Stormbreaker is a new weapon Thor forged during Infinity War at the space forge Nidavellir. It seems to have a connection to Thor like Mjolnir as it rose and seemed to come to him as soon as it was forged. Also like Mjolnir it focuses Thor's powers and has many similarities to his previous hammer. But is much more powerful than Mjolnir and provides Thor with some new abilities.
As stated by Eitri Stormbreaker was "meant to be the greatest in Asgard".
Being a very new weapon it doesn't have many feats but here you can see that it easily plows through the Outrider army.
As you can see it has it's own lightning cloak that reaches out and destroys surrounding Outriders.
It grants Thor flight.
Here he uses this flight to fly through one of Thanos's ships.
While destroying the ship can mainly be attributed to lightning Thor still had to fly through it with Stormbreaker which shows the force with which he can bullrush an opponent.
Another thing that can be noted right before he flies through that ship you see him blitzing about a dozen Outriders and killing them.
Combat wise this shows that Thor can use Stormbreaker to blitz opponents while projecting his lightning cloak onto them during the blitz. It makes it far harder to counter him if he decides to blitz an opponent.
Stormbreaker is easily one of the most powerful weapons in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is so incredibly powerful that it can completely overpower and cut through a full blast from a completed IG including all 6 Infinity Stones.
This mystical axe grants Thor the ability to summon the Bifrost.
The Bifrost has shown the ability to devastate the planet of Jotunheim and it was stated repeatedly that it can destroy the planet.
I personally don't feel that we should assume Thor will do this in combat on the battle forums but theoretically he should be able to with Stormbreaker.
The axe also gives him an impressive healing factor. This can be noted in the film after Thor is burnt near to the point of death by the power of a neutron star he is healed by the axe and restored to full health.
You do not see it actually heal Thor onscreen but it was shown that he was fine as soon as he entered the battle of Wakanda and it was also stated by the directors of the film that the axe healed him.
Fodderizes Asgardian level Frost Giants.
Thor breaks out of a container that was designed to contain the Hulk.
If you take what the official script says it is actually confirmed that this blow violently shook the Helicarrier ship.
Sends Hulk flying and dazes him.
Thor one shots loads of Ultron bots and launches a few with enough force to send them flying dozens of meters into a truck causing that truck to explode.
Thor sends a car flipping.
Topples over a tank with a strike.
Thor strikes a giant 20 foot tall Malekith hard enough to send him flying and crashing into his spaceship with enough force to create a crater in the ships metal.
Here Thor dents the Bifrost bridge.
The same bridge no sold a Dark Elf ship slamming unto it.
And these same ships could fly through pillars, statues and aircraft with no issue.
Its also noted in the official script that Thor shook the entire Bifrost bridge and Observatory.
Thor hits hard enough to create massive shockwaves that make a clearing in a Forrest.
Thor hits so hard that he takes the turret off of a tank with the shockwave of his hit.
Creates massive shockwaves that expands and wrecks concrete for over a hundred feet.
Thor his the ground so hard that he creates a shockwave that expands for hundreds of feet, obliterates surrounding fire demons and moves Surtur.
The famous city busting feat. Now while I think it is unclear whether or not this feat is city busting I still think it's impressive.
Why? Because of this.
If you watch the scene closely you can see visually shockwaves expanding from where Thor hit and destroying the surrounding buildings.
Thor often throws his hammer at opponents and he has acquired several good feats while doing so.
Throws his hammer through loads of Asgardian level Frost Giants.
Here he throws Mjolnir with enough force to send Iron Man through a tree.
Here he manages to knock down the Destroyer which seemed to be heavier than a car.
Here he manages to send Malekith flying back hundreds of feet through multiple concrete pillars. And with enough force to wreck a car after that.
Striking Without Mjolnir.
Thor ragdolls a large Frost Giant with a kick.
Thor lifts a large Frost Giant into the air with a punch.
Thor launches an Iron Legion bot back 20+ feet with a punch.
Here from AOU Thor blows open a wall. His hammer was down so he seems to have done it by punching or kicking it.
Thor punches hard enough to obliterate Surtur's fire demons.
Thor was able to completely shatter a small shield Hela generated with a punch.
Thor consistently hits hard enough to hurt the Hulk.
Thor wrecks a space ship.
Thor dents Iron Man's armor with a headbutt.
This is really impressive considering Iron Man can survive being grinded up in he Helicarrier. And a previous suit could tank a tank round.
Hammer Strikes Without Mjolnir
Thor hits hard enough to consistently hurt the Hulk with a random war hammer from Sakkar.
Thor launches Hulk through hundreds of feet of advanced alien metal.
Thor punches Hulk hard enough to create massive shockwaves that wrecks the ground. And dazes the Hulk.
Here Thor hits the ground hard enough to damage it and kill dozens of Outriders.
Thor was also likely holding back to an extent here as to not harm any of his allies that were near the area.
Here Thor casually launches a couple Outrider's flying back.
