** Except, of course, for the fact that Connors explained how some people pointed out the fact that there was no opt out option once the chemical was already dispersed which may have convinced him or someone else that being able to take away or remove the chemical (at the very last second before the device disperses the chemical agent and let its effects take place) was an acceptable countermeasure. Besides, it never really got out of prototype phase due to the potential threats it could cause.

* BigApplesauce: Of course!

* BigApplesauce: Of course!Like the rest of the series, ''The Amazing Spider-Man'' is set in New York City.



* EntitledBastard: The convenience store clerk demands that Peter stop a thief after he had been a complete jerk to Peter, and Peter refuses. Of course this is to set up Uncle Ben's [[ItWasHisSled requisite death scene]], but really, you can empathize with Peter. Anyone who'd put himself in harm's way to help someone who'd treated them like that would have to be a saint.

* {{Jerkass}}: A cashier refuses to let Peter take 2 cents out of the penny jar to buy some chocolate milk and acts very rudely, resulting in Peter refusing to help him catch the robber.
* JerkJock: Flash Thompson.
** [[spoiler:LovableJock: While starting off as a JerkJock (and a pretty violent one), Flash shows sympathy to Peter after Uncle Ben dies. By the end of the movie, the two seem to have become friendlier and Flash has become an admirer of Spider-Man.]]

* 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.''

* 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's accomplice in the [[Film/SpiderMan1 first film]]!

** Spider-Man never runs out of the web used for his web-shooters, ever. He also seems to be not concerned about cost even though they're experimental tech. This is particularly {{egregious}}, given that running out of web fluid at inopportune moments is one of Spidey's defining characteristics. Each cartridge holds several hundred meters of cable, which seems like a lot until you realize that even 500 meters translates into about 1600 feet or 160 story lengths of webbing (easily spent in a few swings going across the city). On the other hand, each cartridge is shown to be about the size of a MicroSD card so it may be that he easily carries a number of carts under the costume.

* AntiHero: Peter starts off as an UnscrupulousHero, only stopping criminals because [[spoiler:he's looking for Uncle Ben's killer]]. He grows more selfless after [[spoiler:hearing Gwen's father dismiss him as "some vigilante who only has a personal vendetta" and then saving a small child during the Lizard's first attack]] before he finally settles into the ClassicalAntiHero he's known as after [[spoiler:the death of George Stacy]].

* RealityEnsues:
** Peter has great difficulty finding one long blonde-haired crook among who-knows-how-many in New York, and at the end of the film ''still'' hasn't found Uncle Ben's killer.
** Uncle Ben's death in general: he gets involved in stopping a crook with a gun and gets shot and just dies. No last words, no last glance at Peter, he just dies.
** Flash is a bully and a jerk but when Peter's uncle is murdered he reacts the way most kids would: with genuine sympathy.
** The intern whose pass Peter filched is seen being dragged out for not having it later.

** Gwen Stacy was Peter's love interest before Mary Jane Watson was created. Her interest in science and role as an intern for Dr. Connors is also similar to her portrayal in ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan The Spectacular Spider-Man]]''. While her personality and the way she interacts with Peter[note]him revealing his identity to her and her becoming his schoolmate confidante and ally[/note] is closer to the Ultimate comics' version of Mary Jane than Gwen Stacy in the original comics or the Ultimate comics.
