* AccidentalMisnaming: Jameson misnames Eddie Brock twice in the same scene in his office. Instead of referring to him by his surname of Brock (like he does with Peter), he calls him Bruckner and Bernstein. Eddie corrects him the first time.

* BrokenPedestal: Invoked. Thanks to Eddie's fake picture, Spider-Man is seen this way by the people of New York, with one woman even saying: "This is the guy they gave the key to the city to?" Spider-Man is then vindicated when the picture is exposed as a fake and Eddie is fired.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Implied. Eddie faked the picture of Spider-Man robbing the bank to get the photographer staff job at the Daily Bugle, and seemingly didn't plan for what could happen if the picture was revealed to be a fake and he was found out. When Peter found out and exposed the truth, Eddie quietly told Peter that no paper in the city would hire him if they knew what he did. Peter simply tells him he should have thought of that earlier.



* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Peter [[spoiler:and later Eddie]] being affected by the symbiote seems reminiscent of drug addiction and the mood swings that accompany it. [[spoiler:Getting rid of the symbiote could be like trying to get off of drugs.]]

** The symbiote attaches itself to the rear licence plate of Peter's moped after it lands in Central Park. The shape of the symbiote at this point is a V shape. This foreshadows Venom [[spoiler:as the symbiote later bonds to Eddie Brock and he becomes Venom, who Peter has to defeat in the climax.]]



** Eddie Brock coming across black-suited Spider-Man at the bank heist. Spider-Man smashes his camera, forcing Eddie to use his other camera. One of the pictures Eddie takes is used to make his fake picture during said bank heist to try and expose black Spider-Man as a criminal.

* SmugSnake: Eddie Brock is, at least initially, a slimy, unctuous creep who sucks up to Jameson to advance his own career prospects, is quite condescending towards Peter, flirts with Betty Brant while still with Gwen, is a bit too creepy-stalkerish with Gwen Stacy, the 'girl he intends to marry' (although Gwen is quick to point out that they've only ever been out for a coffee once) and ends up manufacturing a photo of Spider-Man robbing a bank to frame the superhero and secure a staff job at the ''Bugle''. Then Peter exposes his fake, he loses his job, and Gwen breaks up with him [[spoiler:and then he meets the Venom symbiote]]...



* SpinningPaper: At the start of the montage sequence, the Daily Bugle spins into shot, with the headline "Sorry Spidey, Faker Fired". It then spins out of shot and cuts to Peter with Ursula.
