* 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 think 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.

* LostInImitation: A LOT of things from the movies were taken from the 90's cartoon series and not the comic books. Green Goblin being a split personality of Norman's developed from the Goblin formula and Norman talking to him was from the cartoon. The plot point of the Green Goblin going after people who wronged Norman Osborn was from the cartoon, Mary Jane being a replacement for Gwen on the iconic bridge scene was from the cartoon,Otto Octavius being someone Peter personally knew was from the cartoon, the symbiote augmenting Peter's powers and creating a dark side was from the cartoon, Eddie Brock working at the Daily Bugle as a rival photographer and not as a journalist somewhere else and his prior relationship to Peter was from the cartoon

** The most blatant example is probably the part where Peter wears the black suit for the first time. The alien symbiote climbs on his bed while he sleeps and then he wakes up hanging upside down from a web wearing it, while he sees his reflection on the side of a building. The only thing missing is the nightmare sequence (and even that is hinted at).

* MovieSuperheroesWearMutedColors: The TropeMaker and TropeCodifier. Peter wears his red-and-blue webs, but the colors are noticeably darker than they are in the comics. Green Goblin also ditches the purple parts of his outfit, and the green is darker and more metallic.

In the third film he has a ''very'' dark grey version of his regular costume, instead of the pitch black suit with big, bright white spider on the chest and back from the comics.

** 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 and the alien symbiote.

** In terms of overall story, the film's focus on LoveDodecahedron for its dramatic tension draws squarely from the soap opera of the Lee-Romita years, rather than the bildungsroman[=/=]science-fiction of the original stories, or the more weirder and complicated runs in later Spider-Man arcs.

Most notably Peter's personal involvement with his villains, either knowing them before transformation (Dr. Octopus, Eddie Brock, Flint Marko) or being connected to them personally (Norman Osborn) came from this era, whereas in the earlier stories, Peter had no connection to any of these villains.



** Harry Osborn (who is after all played by Creator/JamesFranco) starts hamming it up in the third movie.



* TookALevelInJerkass: Harry Osborn and Mary-Jane in the second movie. Peter in the third movie.
