* MythologyGag:
** Many shots are based on or even directly stolen from [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy the live-action movies]]
** Many shots are also straight from comic book covers, including the famous Amazing Spider-Man #100 cover.
** Spidey uses one of [[ComicBook/FantasticFour The Thing's]] many {{Catchphrase}} "What a revoltin' development this is"
** Combining this with possible {{Foreshadowing}}, Stan Carter complains that Spider-Man "doesn't go far enough" when dealing with criminals. The comicbook version of Carter was actually the psychotic vigilante Sin-Eater, who went way beyond "far enough" [[spoiler: including the murder of Jean [=DeWolff=]]]
** Doc Ock had two girls on his arms in "Accomplices", and the blond one of them bears a resemblance to Stunner, one of Doc's in-comic girls. Some say the black haired one looks a bit like Mary-Alice, his first fiance.
** As it happens in every animated series he appears, Mysterio battles Spidey in a movie lot. This also happens regularly in comic books; justified because of Mysterio's former job as stuntman and special effects expert.
*** Spider-Man also fights Mysterio on a Wild West Saloon set on that lot. [[WesternAnimation/SpiderMan1967 Hmmm...]]
** As well as some to the fans for example, lack of banter was a complaint about [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy the movies]], so when Doc Ock yells "Do you ever shut up!?" during a fight, Spidey responds with"Sorry, no. My fans expect a certain amount of quippage in every battle."
** The Season 2 episode "Shear Strength" has Spidey trapped into a situation similar to the comic books, where he had to save the life of a loved one despite being buried under a big fricking machine.
** In "Opening Night" Montana resorts to his comic book weapon: a lasso, only in this case one made from sheets.
** The fact that Frederick Foswell was investigating Tombstone/The Big Man could be a reference to the fact that in the comics, Foswell was himself the Big Man.
** Kingsley Lampshading his BaitAndSwitch, also saying "the classics are the best." In the comics, Kingsley was the Hobgoblin and had multiple people to take the fall for it, and the Hobgoblin's intended identity had a habit of being changed fairly frequently. This is, of course, a classic storyline and Kingsley is a fan favourite.
** The story arc leading up to Mary Jane's reveal was done in the same vein as her original debut in the comics, with Peter being unsure of how she looks and assuming the worst before being proven dead wrong, capped off with this classic line:
--->'''Mary Jane''': Face it, Tiger: you just hit the jackpot.
** In "Reaction," Spider-Man stops a stolen truck using almost exactly the same technique that he did to stop a train in the second Creator/SamRaimi film.
** The field trip flashback in "Intervention" is an almost line-for-line, shot-for-shot recreation of the scene in the first movie, albeit with Gwen instead of Mary Jane. The rest of the flashback borrows a more iconic scenes from both the movies and the comics, with a few of the lines changed to avoid a lawsuit.
** In "Survival of the Fittest," Pete tells himself that "Spider-Man's a wallcrawler, not a wallflower," before trying to ask out Sally Avril. This is a callback to ''Amazing Fantasy #15'' (Spidey's first appearance in comics), in which Peter Parker was referred to as a "professional wallflower." He also tried asking out a girl named Sally, only to be rejected.
** A possible meta example calling back to [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries the '90s series]]; on that series, the MoralGuardians insisted that Spider-Man not disturb pigeons on rooftops, for fear they might get hurt. In the cartoon, not only does Peter disturb a group of pigeons just by walking past them (they get scared of his shadow) but he is also thrown into a stack of cages holding them. None are visibly hurt, but this seems like a TakeThat to the censors for the previous cartoon.
** Gwen Stacy's black headband finally turns up in the last few minutes of "Final Curtain"
** The Black Cat teaming up with Spidey to stop the Chameleon in the first episode of the Symbiote arc is very likely a nod to the fact that in the original Symbiote arc in the comics the two were a couple at the time.
** The Black Costume notably begins looking like it did in the third movie, and as it gradually begins exerting its influence over Peter it begins looking more and more like it does in the comics.
** Several of the villain's debut episodes are based on their first comic appearances or defeated in the same way as in the comics.
*** Spidey beats Venom by surrendering himself to the symbiote and allowing it to try and take over his body again.
*** Chameleon is defeated and apprehended while trying to escape by sea.
*** Spidey first encounters Mysterio on a bridge, both versions ending with Spider-Man diving into the water below.
*** Kraven the Hunter is defeated by getting trapped in webbing in Central Park.

* ShoutOut:
** In the series premiere, there are a great many WesternAnimation/{{gargoyles}} shown, in reference to director Creator/GregWeisman's series of the same name, also set in New York.
** In the TitleSequence, one of the "photos" of Spider-Man is a tribute to the cover of ''Amazing Fantasy #15,'' his debut issue.
** Musical {{leitmotif}}s from the 1960s and 1990s series can be heard in the background music.
** In the second season episode, "First Steps," Sandman is stealing the "Urn of [[ComicBook/TheSandman Morpheus]]" from a museum for Hammerhead.
** In the fourth episode of the 1st season, Spider-Man comments to the Shocker/Montana "I mock. I'm a mocker." The Mocker was a comic by Spider-Man creator Creator/SteveDitko.
** The statue of Atlas is a reoccurring feature, likely a shout out to "Atlas Shrugged" in keeping with Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko's objectivism.
** In "Opening Night" Black Cat uses a fake ID with the name "Selina Drew" "Drew" is probably a reference to Spider-Woman, aka Jessica Drew, while "Selina" may refer to Comicbook/{{Catwoman}}.
*** Also in "Opening Night", when Spider-Man is fighting Mysterio, Mysterio sends out some imp creatures to attack him. J. Jonah Jameson, watching from the security room says:
--> '''J. Jonah Jameson''': I love these guys! Ha! [[Creator/GregWeisman Someone]] should give them [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} their own show]]!
** In "Nature Vs. Nuture" Peter wonders if "Romita's" delivers turkey pizza. A reference to artists John Romita
** There may also be some homage to WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond Because, at some point during the fight with the Sinister Six (First fight), Spider-Man defeats Shocker the same way Shriek was defeated.
** The battle damage that Spider-Man suffers in his fight with the Green Goblin in season 2 looks like it came from the movie.
** Also, Impact Webbing makes an appearance in season 2. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, Venom's are ''much'' more effective.]]
** And then there's.....
--> '''Spider-Man (To a Mysterio-bot's disembodied head)''': What are you gonna do? [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail Bite my kneecaps off?]]
*** That one was also used in Weisman's other show ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' episode "Future Tense", where Xanatos said the exact same thing.
** While fighting a giant Sandman, Spider-Man cribs a line from Greg Weisman's time on WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}} regarding the similar villain Sandpit: "How am I supposed to beat up a beach?"
*** That's another one that goes all the way back to ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''; after the heroes defeat a massive amount of sand controlled by [[EvilSorcerer the Archmage]], he gloats that they accomplished nothing other than beating up a beach.
** Colonel Jupiter's ShoutOut to ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan''.
*** And he mentions "[[{{Superman}} leaping tall buildings]] InASingleBound."
** Episode "Catalyst" has Peter getting [[TomPetty a last dance with Mary Jane]].
** "Survival of the Fittest" had Peter cling to a gargoyle that looked remarkably like [[{{WesternAnimation/Gargoyles}} Hudson]] to slow his fall.
** Liz Allan's RaceLift to Latina may be a ShoutOut to Paulina from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''.
** In "Shear Strength", a demolitions tech refers to "cascading detonations" that would bring a building down "in its own footprint". Which happens to sound a lot like UsefulNotes/ConspiracyTheories about 9/11.
* ShoutOutToShakespeare: The school play is ''Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream''. Green Goblin even quotes a few of Puck's lines. Oh, did we mention the guy writing this episode is [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} Greg Weisman]]?
