** Sandman. When we first see him he's completely unstable and looks like he's in agony. The Hammer scientist who created him says the physical transformation went perfectly but his mind couldn't handle it. Later on he settles down, but its implied he has brain damage.

* RealityEnsues: As shown with both Peter and Miles teenagers are not good at protecting their secret identities as there classmates eventually put two and two together. It reached the point that during Ultimate Fallout the only one in Peterís class who didnít realize he was Spiderman was Flash Tompson.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Somewhat and rather humorously for the Hollywood arc. Which is set during the during the filming of ''Spider-Man 2'' and even uses the people who worked on the movie (Tobey Maguire, Sam Raimi). The real-life equivalent of which had came out not too long ago that year. The real Spider-Man isn't pleased when he finds out, to say the least. Although he's mostly annoyed that he can't get royalties from the movie, at least not without telling them his real-life identity.

* TooDumbToLive: For a while, Mary Jane appeared as if she was desperatly trying to fall under this, as she completely ignored Peter's warnings to stay away from Harry Osborn and was ''stunned'' when Peter broke up with her after this led to her nearly being killed by the Hobgoblin shortly after [[spoiler:Gwen's death]].
* TriangRelations: '''Type Four''', with an added, extra suitor in Kitty Pryde, who would form a D to Peter's A. At certain points through the comic's run, the reciprocation Peter displays does switch based on events, but he's GenreSavvy or simply smart enough to realize a Type Seven would be a bad idea.
* TrueCompanions: By the start of ''[[TonightSomeoneDies The Death Of Spider-Man]], Peter has managed to get some consisting of Mary Jane, Gwen, Kitty, Johnny and Bobby.

** How Whammy was the Ultimate Clone Saga? [[spoiler:Peter meets a crazy supervillain with his face. MJ gets kidnapped by an insane, deformed clone of Peter. Peter meets a "Spider-Woman" who knocks him out. Peter finds Gwen Stacey apparently back from the dead. Aunt May finds out Peter's secret and hysterically tells him to get the hell out. Richard Parker walks in the front door, apparently having been alive all along. Nick Fury shows up with an army of Spider Slayers to arrest Peter. "Gwen" transforms into Carnage, the monster that ''killed'' her and attacks Fury. Aunt May has a heart attack. "Spider-Woman" rescues Peter from Nick Fury and reveals herself to be an OppositeSexClone of him. The deformed clone beats up another clone which has 6 arms and mutates MJ with OZ, causing her to turn into a horrific hairy monster when she gets angry or frightened. "Richard Parker" turns out to be an artificially aged clone of Peter with fake memories. It turns out the one behind it all was Doctor Octopus, who is now working for the CIA. And Doc Ock's power isn't control over his tentacles after all- it's absolute control over ''metal''.]] The [[HolyShitQuotient HSQ]] for this arc was ''through the roof.''

** Doctor Octopus was retconned into having control over metal like Magneto, as opposed to just having a psychic link to his mechanical arms.

* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: Immediately after getting bit by the spider, Peter is a jerk. It doesn't last long.

to:

* AbortedArc: Nick Fury claims that after the symbiote's existence had been revealed to the world, multiple factions all over the world are starting to look for and fight over it. The conflict is apparently so bad that Fury sees this as the prelude to World War 3. This is never brought up again due to the next story arc being part of ''ComicBook/{{Ultimatum}}'', with this conflict possibly also being cancelled in-universe due to the worldwide destruction ''Ultimatum'' brought about.

** Martha and Billy Connors are renamed Doris and Timmy. Curt's last name itself is modified is to "Conn'''e'''rs", instead of "Connors". Additionally, the name of Curt's wife is a ContinuitySnarl as Curt's debut in ''Ultimate Marvel Team-Up'' featured a letter to her, wherein he calls her "Marsha"--and later in the same issue, her 616 name, "Martha".

* AllThereInTheManual: The short-lived ''Ultimate Marvel Team-Up'' and the ''Ultimate Spider-Man Super Special'' that closed out the series contained Ultimate Spidey's first run-ins with the Lizard, ComicBook/BlackWidow, ComicBook/{{Blade}}, ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}, ComicBook/{{Elektra}}, and ComicBook/ManThing (though the Blade encounter did get revisited in the "ComicBook/{{Morbius}}" arc). The Special also wrapped-up the class assignment subplot seen in "Double Trouble" (the initial Doctor Octopus/Kraven arc of the main ''Ultimate Spider-Man'' series).

** Ultimate Marvel Team-Up shows Spidey going to meet the ComicBook/FantasticFour (clearly inspired by the first regular issue of ''Amazing Spider-Man''), and Spidey knows who the FF are, and they are pretty much the adult mainstream versions. The Ultimate version of the FF were later shown to be in their early twenties/late teens, and Spidey didn't know who or what Johnny Storm was when he showed up at Midtown High and later accidentally revealed his powers.

** Daredevil gets a much darker portrayal than his 616!counterpart, having no qualms about killing his enemies and even (in the case of [[spoiler: Wilson Fisk]]) holding their loved ones hostage to get to them. His relationship with Peter Parker is also drastically different; instead of being a close ally that respects and even relates to Peter, Daredevil treats him mostly with disdain and often chews him out for being, in his own opinion, a naive, inexperienced kid with no business fighting crime. While this could be explained as Daredevil wanting keep a teenager from getting involved in a life he may not be ready for, it doesn't change the fact that he's very much a JerkAss to Peter (to the point of physically ''assaulting'' him on at least one occasion) and goes to extremes that 616 Daredevil would never go to. It goes to show that Daredevil's brand of vigilante justice wouldn't lead to the nicest, or ''sanest'' person.
