** A [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7Y0L5Z-KwU Dr. Pepper ad]] for ''Spider-Man 2'' spoofs the web slinging by having a kid climb up a building and trying to imitate Spidey by swinging across to another building with his own improvised grappling hook--[[WhatAnIdiot he doesn't factor in Spidey's abilities that make the swinging work]], [[RealityEnsues and he ends up smashing face first into the nearby building.]]

* The various incarnations of ''Comicbook/SpiderMan''. Along with wall-crawling, web-slinging is his defining characteristic. His web-shooters manufacture the lines from chemicals, and in most incarnations are technological devices rather than an innate power (though the 21st-century movies used organic webs, and the comics followed suit... [[ComicBook/OneMoreDay for a while]]). Spidey's arms not coming out of his sockets, as would generally happen with normal people, is HandWaved (justifiably) with his super-strength. On one occasion in the 90s cartoon, he loses his powers temporarily, and mentions how much it hurts when he tries to use the webshooters to get around. He also uses his wall crawling ability to stick his hands to the web strings, otherwise it'd easily slip out of his hand when he swung from it. His web cartridges tend to resemble BottomlessMagazines... [[DependingOnTheWriter except when]] [[RuleOfDrama running out would be more dramatic]].

Also, his spider-sense allowed him to be confident that he would consistently have his web-lines hit safe anchor points to swing from. His web cartridges tend to resemble BottomlessMagazines...
