* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Actor RhysIfans has likened Connors' use of the serum to a drug addiction, and it's easy to see why: he injects the serum into his arm by means of a hollow needle, it makes him feel fantastic, and he keeps using more and more of it to negate going back to normal.

Added DiffLines:

* ImAHumanitarian: Immediately after a terse confrontation with Dr. Connors, Peter discovers that Fred - the three-legged mouse used as the Lizard Serum's first test subject - has mutated into a grotesque reptilian rodent and is in the process of devouring Wilma, the three-legged mouse used as the experiment's control sample.

* InstantlyProvenWrong: Implied when Peter Parker comes home and Uncle Ben demands to know why he didn't answer his phone. Before Peter can speak, his phone rings, disproving any story of it being unable to do so.

* AdaptationalVillainy: While not an outright ''villain'' per se, George Stacy is here presented as much more antagonistic toward Spidey than in the comics, wherein he's openly supportive.

* BigBad: Curt Connors in this movie, or more accurately his monstrous alternate personality "The Lizard".

* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: This version of Uncle Ben takes it UpToEleven: After storming out of the house, Peter tries to buy milk but is two cents short. Since the clerk won't spot him two pennies from the (overflowing!) take-a-penny tray, Peter leaves, only to watch a street thug grab a handful of money from the register while the clerk's back was turned. Peter's reward for doing nothing, the milk the clerk refused him. Naturally Peter doesn't help track down that thug for the clerk. The dude was a {{Jerkass}}, he deserved to be robbed. Of course, that same thug then kills Uncle Ben, who had been chasing after Peter trying to find him. He dies because of ''two cents.''
** It can be traced back even further, to when Peter was busy being Spider-Man and didn't pick up the phone call that presumably would have reminded him to pick up Aunt May. After Uncle Ben's death, it's notable that he never ignores a call again.

* DamselOutOfDistress : Gwen is ''not'' helpless. [[spoiler:An intern at Oscorp's labs, she prepares the Lizard antidote there for Peter. When the Lizard himself is coming to the same lab she's in, she refuses to flee while the antidote is "cooking", even though Peter begs her to. She sets off the general evacuation alarm and uses a burner to set off the room's fire alarm, fogging it up and triggering the blast doors. She takes the dispersal device the Lizard is after and hides. When the Lizard finds her, she uses the burner and an aerosol can as a ''flamethrower.'' The Lizard is more interested in the device than her, so he just takes it and leaves her alone.]]

* TheDogBitesBack: After having enough of Flash playing the JerkJock role, Peter proceeds to humiliate Flash in front of the cheerleaders and the rest of the basketball team, by using his new powers to keep Flash from retrieving a basketball, culminating with [[spoiler:Peter dunking the ball, destroying the backboard and hoop in the process.]]

* TheHerosJourney: We follow Peter from a normal kid, to a vigilante with a vendetta, to a genuine hero under the unwitting tutelage of Captain Stacy.

* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: Both averted and played straight in the movie. One scene has a cop fire at Spider-Man... who happens to be standing maybe 6 feet in front of a webbed up car thief. Since Spidey naturally dodges the bullets, it's a wonder the thief isn't shot. Then in the climatic fight [[spoiler: Stacy averts this when he keeps his shotgun trained on Lizard and only releases one hand to pass the antidote to Spidey, doing so without also looking away from Lizard and using his non-trigger hand.]]

* KillItWithIce: [[spoiler:Captain Stacy and Peter manage to incapacitate the Lizard by freezing him with liquid nitrogen and then pumping shells into him. However, he soon heals back and the liquid nitrogen doesn't last very long.]]

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:Connors, after being cured of the Lizard, is devastated by the fact that he killed Captain Stacy. Probably why he didn't resist when he was taken to jail.]]

* NoticeThis: A rare non-video game example; [[spoiler:When Spidey is on a rooftop trying to get to Oscorp in time, an overhead helicopter shines a spotlight, first on him, then to the cranes the construction works have set up so he can swing there more quickly.]]

* TheRealHeroes: One of the construction workers recognizes Spider-Man as the one who saved his son, and sees that he's injured and struggling to make it to the Oscorp building. Rather than fleeing with the rest of Manhattan, he and his fellows on construction sites along Sixth Ave line up their cranes so Spider-Man can get there more easily. As they assemble, an American flag is rather prominently displayed in the middle of the screen.

* SeanConneryIsAboutToShootYou: The final shot of the movie.



* SequelHook: Not only was a sequel announced before the movie was released, but some points of the film are deliberately left unresolved such as [[spoiler:Uncle Ben's killer never being caught]], and the [[TheStinger midcredits scene]] (see The Stinger below) Also, what happened to Peter's parents isn't completely resolved either. (Also see The Stinger below)



* ShapeshifterBaggage: Dr. Connors gets huge amounts of extra body mass and grows several feet in height when he turns into the Lizard, and likewise loses it all when he returns to human form.

* TalkingToThemself: [[spoiler:Connors develops a Lizard personality, much like Norman Osborn in the first film. ''Un''like it, however, the conversation is explicitly mental and not spoken out loud. The stinger hints he may have been talking to someone else after all.]]

* YouLookFamiliar: During the bridge scene, before Dr. Ratha's car [[spoiler:is attacked by the Lizard]], his driver steps out to see what's holding up traffic on the bridge. Take a ''good, long look'' at the driver. That's Michael Papajohn, who played Uncle Ben's killer in the [[Film/SpiderMan1 first film]]!

* FreezeFrameBonus: When Peter first enters Gwen's room, a copy of Seabiscuit can be seen in a stack of books. Guess who played that film's [[Creator/TobeyMaguire star jockey]]. There is a scene where Peter's computer screen is visible for just a couple of seconds, yet you can make out his desktop background: a photo of RichardFeynman. Now that's a GeniusBonus for ya.
