* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Smythe sets his cross-species killing robots out in the city to stop them, which only causes more harm than good, and also creates a nanobot serum designed to destroy those infected with the cross-species virus from the inside out, all with the intention of "saving" the city.]]

* VillainsActHeroesReact: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-zagged.]] The story starts out with Gwen Stacy taking Peter to investigate [[BigBad Alistaire Smythe]], who she suspects of continuing cross-species experiments for nefarious purposes, but it turns out that he's actually going to dispose of them. In fact, at the beginning of the game, Alistaire isn't even a villain, doing nothing illegal and acting under protocol. However, Peter's presence [[spoiler: causes the cross-species to break out, starting the city-wide catastrophe. Smythe then spends the first half of the game trying to contain the threat using his robot army, before finally becoming a full villain once he is crippled with the cure that Peter himself gave him.]] Most of the game plays out with Peter and Smythe trying to outmaneuver each other, rather than either one being the sole one acting or reacting.
