* BullyingTheDragon: J. Jonah Jameson sure has a way with words when calling out Doctor Octopus for kidnapping Felicia Hardy.
-->'''Doc Ock:''' You dare talk that way to a scientist?!\\
'''Jameson:''' Scientist? You're just some coward who kidnapped an innocent girl!\\

** Doctor Crawford didn't believe Eddie's stories about Venom - thinking "Venom never existed." Instead, she thinks that Eddie was deluded because of ''Spider-Man'''s "horrible persecution" of him. This is odd because not only is Eddie completely upfront about it, but there were a number of witnesses that actually saw Venom (including Jonah and Robbie). Her skepticism doesn't last long, though.

* UnexpectedCharacter: In the SeriesFinale, Spidey went to an alternate universe where he met [[spoiler:Gwen Stacy, who was unexpected because there was no appearance or even mention of any Gwen Stacy in that series until then]].

** Similarly, Carnage may not be shown actually killing people left and right ([[NeverSayDie merely "draining their life energy" for Mordo]]), he was portrayed as unhinged and callous enough that it wouldn't surprise you if he went on a rampage.

** Similarly, Carnage may not be shown actually killing people left and right ([[NeverSayDie merely "draining their life energy" for Mordo]]), he was portrayed as unhinged and callous enough that it wouldn't surprise you if he went on a rampage. Cletus Kasady was in fact introduced as a MadBomber who, when cornered, laughed at the idea of [[TakingYouWithMe taking out Spider-Man and any number of police]] with himself.



** Let's not forget Robbie's son Randy Robertson, as well as Otto Octavius, Spencer Smythe, Michael Morbius, Lonnie Lincoln, Glory Grant, Cletus Kasady, John Jameson, Curt Connors, and in guest appearances, Reed Richards, Sue Storm, "Rhodey" Rhodes, Scott Summers, and even Stephen Strange.

(Of course, Robbie and Rhodey are nicknames based on their last names; their first names are Joseph and Jim, respectively.)



**It also means the original [[spoiler:Hydro-Man]] isn't BackFromTheDead after all.
**[[spoiler: Miranda actually commits suicide, as does Mysterio by choosing to stay with her.]] We also get a ContinuityNod to something you'd think they'd want swept under the rug.



**Jameson's wife was killed in a gang crossfire, giving him a distate for "people in masks who think they're above the law," while every other version, even darker versions, do not give Jameson any FreudianExcuse for hating Spidey.



**Hobgoblin is voiced by none other than Creator/MarkHamill. (Yeah, we mostly think of him as [[Franchise/StarWars Luke]], but fans of [[{{ComicBook.Batman}} the Joker]] and [[Series/TheFlash the Trickster]] know that he ''more often'' plays villains who bring a Death Star-sized helping of ham.)



** ComicBook/ThePunisher. The series had to do this to even get him on the show. He's restricted from using proper firearms, and doesn't kill anyone, but it does slightly imply that he has done so in the past (his partner convinces him to use the nonlethal ordinance for once). And he looks like he's about ready to off a crook in his first appearance, the crook having to jump out the window and run to the police himself instead.

* 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 grew sick of him as a result.

He eventually just wants to be left alone, and with the Blade arc, goes from there to becoming another heroic vampire.



***He also serves as a nod to [[ComicBook/IronMan another hero]] who is wealthy, armored, and can be arrogant.



* OmnicidalManiac: Spider-Carnage, the final BigBad. An alternate Peter Parker, he was at the end of his rope due to his world's [[ComicBook/TheCloneSaga Clone Saga]] (which included the death of Aunt May) ''before'' being possessed by the Carnage-Symbiote and acquiring dimension-travel tech. [[spoiler:When Spidey goes to one of the alternate universes and brings back a still alive Uncle Ben in tow [[RousingSpeech to try to reach the man inside of Spider-Carnage]], that Peter finds [[FightingFromTheInside his efforts to fight the influence of the Symbiote]] to be all for naught and subsequently [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices himself]] to save the multiverse.]]

**The worst was when Green Goblin got his upgraded glider. Every Gobby episode after that would have him switch from one to another from one shot to the next as old footage was slipped into new battles.



* SuperPoweredAlterEgo: It's not particularly explicit but Felica's personality appears to change into a more casual, reckless, confidant, slightly more amoral and sexually forward version of herself upon turning into the Black Cat. This is shown best after her inital bank robbery where the Cat is smugly boasts about her sucess but quickly becomes indigant and outraged after turning back into Felica.

** VillainsWantMercy: In ''The Alien Costume'' three-parter, Spidey acquires the black suit and he ends up fighting Rhino and, later, Shocker. He becomes straight up ruthless and has both of them begging for mercy. With Rhino, Spidey runs off upon realizing what he was about to do, while with Shocker, he refrains from throwing the villain from a bell tower, but then the suit throws Shocker off for him, and Spidey is only narrowly able to save Shocker from becoming a satin on the lawn.

* DirtyCop: Federal Agent Susan Choi, who turns out to be TheMole for the Kingpin in "Framed".



* DramaticIrony: Several interactions between Dr. Landon and his assistant Genevieve in "The Mutant Agenda" become a sad version of this after TheReveal. Landon's chief ambition is to [[FantasticRacism destroy]] the [[PsychicPowers Marvel mutants]], something the seeming KnightTemplar Genevieve does not oppose. It is then shown that ''[[YouAreWhatYouHate she]]'' is secretly a mutant herself--but troubled and [[InternalizedCategorism filled with self-loathing]] because of it. In one of their final dialogues, when he is about to launch his purge, she works up her courage and ''almost'' asks him not to do it... Only to withdraw when he responds with hostility.

* HadToComeToPrisonToBeACrook: This is how The Kingpin came to be -- originally sent to prison for larceny, after one of his dad's scams went south, and his bulk prevented him from following his father up a fire escape. Once he comes out, [[spoiler:he's got "connections", and uses what he's learned to begin building his criminal empire]].

They include a [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]] style inventor engaged to Gwen Stacy (who "our" Spidey had [[AdaptedOut never even met]]), a version of [[CloningBlues Ben Reily]], a Spidey [[CallBack still having multiple arms do to a mutation problem]], a Spidey with Doc Ock arms, and an actor with no powers who [[RealWorldEpisode plays Spidey in movies, hailing from a universe where Spider-Man is just a famous comic character created by]] Creator/StanLee.
