* FacePalm: Phil Urich does a ''double'' face palm when Betty Brant points out that Miles Morales (even though in costume) is black, just before she posits that [[UnfortunateImplications he and the African-American Prowler must be related]].

** 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.

** Likewise, the Lizard is one of Spider-Man's classic villains, but he only appears once in Ultimate Marvel Team-Up, and his only two appearances in the main Ultimate Spider-Man title were a flashback and nightmare sequence.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Not quite as dark as the rest of ComicBook/UltimateMarvel, but still a little darker than [[ComicBook/SpiderMan mainstream Spider-Man comics]].

** 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.

** ''Ultimate Origins'' reveals [[spoiler:that Richard and Mary Parker were injured by the Hulk during Banner's first transformation whilst Peter was a baby... and it was only the sight of Peter in his mother's arms that stops the Hulk from doing more damage]]. However, as it had previously been established that [[spoiler:Peter knew his parents and that they died in a plane crash with Eddie Brock's parents]]. However, Bendis claims that they survived.

** Shocker is a brutal deconstruction of the HarmlessVillain trope. [[spoiler: His ButtMonkey abuse ends up causing him to snap and horrifically torture Spider-Man. It's all but explicitly said that Spider-Man's constant fights with him have wrecked his mental state beyond repair.]]

* EvenEvilHasStandards: High standards at that. While he's not evil, Jameson was antagonistic towards Peter for most of his run as Spider-Man, and refused to run a story outing Miles's secret identity if there's really no other point, no impact or importance, to that story. It'd accomplish nothing except to seriously screw over Miles. Interestingly enough, the reason why they went ''back'' to ranting about Spider-Man was because Jonah (and a ''lot'' of people in New York) felt that Miles taking the "Spider-Man" name (and his bumbling first appearance) showed nothing but [[NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead disrespect for Peter's memory]].
