** The Green Goblin is about on par with Spider-Man in terms of physical capabilities. However, Peter does get the upper hand on him a few times, most notably in the climax where he is shown pummeling him with ease after he regains his resolve. His biggest threat level comes from his trickery and the fact that he knows about Peter's identity and those he cares about.

** The Green Goblin is about on par with Spider-Man in terms of physical capabilities. Most of their fights end inconclusively with the Goblin giving him the biggest NoHoldsBarredBeatdown of all the villains (making the hero into a bloody mess). However, Peter does get gets the upper hand on him a few times, him, most notably in the climax where he is shown pummeling him with ease after he regains his resolve. His biggest threat level comes from Goblin doesn't really have an EvilPlan and mostly content with causing general mayhem and chaos, or somehow getting Peter to "join him" (to do what is not made clear). What makes him dangerous is his trickery unpredictability and the fact that he knows about his knowledge of Peter's identity and those he cares about. SecretIdentity to attack his loved ones.

* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: PlayedWith. The threat between each of the villains tends to vary in terms of physical fighting capability and actual potential threat.

** Despite landing many blows on him, Spider-Man is unable to defeat Doctor Octopus in a straight up fight and they are about even. However, he is arguably a bigger threat than the Goblin due to the destructive capability of his fusion reactor.
** In comparison to his father, Harry is not nearly the same level of threat; despite catching him off guard a few times, Peter defeats him in both of their fights. In contrast, Venom and Sandman are both individually more powerful than Peter and more of a threat due to their team-up.

* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Ursula [[ShoutOut Diko]]vitch is clearly infatuated with Peter, but whenever he's in trouble she advises him to call Mary Jane does what she can to help him.

* YourCheatingHeart: Mary Jane Watson is very prone to this. In the first film, she cheats on Harry by kissing Spider-Man in the rain. In the second film, she is engaged and cheats with Peter. In the third film, shea feels betrays when Peter publically kisses Gwen Stacy (even though it was only for show) and berates him for this because it was "their kiss", despite the fact that when she did it with him ''she'' was the one who was cheating. During her rough patch, she gets a passionate-yet-immediately-regretted kiss with Harry (Peter's best friend and her EX).

** And Eddie Brock: despite being TheSociopath and a [[SmugSnake slimeball]], his downward spiral into madness that ends up consuming him when he bonds with the Symbiote is just sad. Also Sandman and Harry, who are on the AntiVillain side of things. Really, the only villains without any tragedy to them are Dennis Carradine, the aforementioned "Goblin" SplitPersonality, the ArtificialIntelligence of Ock's "tentacles", and the alien symbiote.

** A mild example. With the exception of Venom, almost all villains are more sympathetic compared to their comic book counterparts, some more, some less.

%% * NeutralFemale: Mary Jane and Aunt May do some subversions.



%% * NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Parts 1 and 3.
* NoSympathy: Mary Jane rather infamously gives this to Peter on more than one occasion. In the first movie, when Peter beats up the bullies, she merely walks away in disgust -- despite him visibly only doing so in self-defense. And throughout the second, she gives him some WhatTheHellHero treatment for repeatedly missing her play -- sure, she doesn't know that he's Spider-Man [[spoiler:(yet, though at the end she does say she thinks she knew, which actually makes her previous behavior even worse)]]; however, not only does she indeed know that he's borderline impoverished and busy fighting an uphill battle trying to juggle work and college (even one of which, realistically, would make it pretty difficult for anyone to be able to go to such a high-class event), but he actually does manage to make it anyway at one point (only to be denied entry due to being too late to be seated) in front of an usher who could easily verify his whereabouts for MJ.

The Green Goblin is under the receiving end of this from Spidey at the climax of the first movie.

** It is interesting to compare how ''Franchise/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' reboots the series while [[{{Reconstruction}} trying to incorporate]] some of the elements left out of this series. Specifically the web shooters are modified from high tech devices created by Oscorp rather than created whole stock by Peter himself. Oscorp turns out to [[MetaOrigin also be connected to]] the origins of Peter and most of his RoguesGallery.

** Mary-Jane Watson is more or less a CompositeCharacter of several of Peter's girlfriends (Herself, Liz Allan, and Gwen Stacy). She is initially Flash Thompson's and Harry Osborn's girlfriend (much like Liz Allan was) and outwardly is a charming and charismatic girl while balancing at home a troubled family background (an aspect of her character that was explored in later years of the Spider-Man comics). Her overall serious and melancholy nature is very much Gwen Stacy rather than the immensely cheerful MJ of the early comics (who more or less lightened up Peter's mood and that of the overall dark tone of the comics).
