* MotiveDecay: At first Morbius wants to find a cure for his vampiric hunger. By the time Blade shows up, though, Morbius has already tasted Spider-Man's blood...er, ''plasma''. Stronger than he had ever been, [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity he liked it]] and set out to turn the entire city into vampires. The downside of course is that he remains a villain for a more extended period of time, and a lot of viewers [[TheScrappy grew sick of him]] as a result.

** When Spidey visists the little girl Tiana, she asks him about his origins, saying, "Timmy says you're an alien from a planet full of spider-people that blew up. But your parents put you in a rocketship to Earth when you were a baby!" The ShoutOut to Franchise/{{Superman}} is obvious. More subtle is the reference to Timmy. Tiana is the [[GenderFlip Gender-Flipped]] version of a character from a famous ''Spider-Man'' story, "The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man". In that story, the boy Spidey visisted was named Timmy.

* NeverMyFault: Mysterio blames Spider-Man for ruining his life by exposing an unethical stunt that nearly killed one of his actors. When called on this, he admits his psychiatrist told him the same thing, but "[[EvilFeelsGood his sessions never made me feel this good.]]"

Being made in the 1990's, and not being ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', the Saturday-morning cartoon came under heavy censorship -- heavier, in fact, than even [[WesternAnimation/XMen other Marvel cartoons of the time]]. Spider-Man almost never threw a punch, and most of the action sequences was either DeadlyDodging or swinging kicks. NeverSayDie was in full force and there was even a joke among the staff that they couldn't even disturb any pigeons on the rooftops for fear one might have been hurt. The corner-cutting animation also left a ''lot'' to be desired, featuring static movement, constantly recycled sequences, and all manner of video goofs.

* HarsherInHindsight:an episode of a disfigured former actress plans to kidnap Mary Jane and use a device to transfer her mind into Mary Jane's young and beautiful body it doesn't work as Mysterio tells her that what she wanted was scientifically impossible. In Comicbook/SuperiorSpiderMan [[spoiler: Doc Ock used this trick on Peter... and it worked.]]
* HilariousInHindsight: In this series Spidey occasionally talks to a Gargoyle statue that he calls "Bruce". Years later,"Creator/GregWeisman" would work on WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan. The work that got him famous? WesternAnimation/Gargoyles

** DisabledSnarker / ServileSnarker
* DestinedBystander: Harry and Norman Osborn, as per the comics. Eddie Brock's grudge against Spider-Man is built up over the course of season one, beginning with the first episode. Felicia Hardy takes the place in the cast you'd expect Gwen or Liz to occupy, and gets three seasons of screentime before becoming the Black Cat. Michael ComicBook/{{Morbius}}, etc.

** DisabledSnarker / ServileSnarker
* DestinedBystander: Much like future adaptations, this series not only keeps the existing Spidey examples but introduces several other characters ''long'' before they take on their classic identities.
**
Harry and Norman Osborn, as per the comics. Unlike the comics, Norman funds the creation of the Hobgoblin years before donning the green mask.
**
Eddie Brock's grudge against Spider-Man is built up over the course of season one, beginning with the first episode. In the comics, Peter had never met him or even heard of him prior to him becoming Venom.
**
Felicia Hardy takes the place in the cast you'd expect Gwen or Liz Allen to occupy, and gets three seasons of screentime before becoming the Black Cat. Michael ComicBook/{{Morbius}}, etc.etc.
* DisabledSnarker / ServileSnarker: Smythe spends most of his time in Crime Central trading snark with Kingpin.
