* DangerouslyGenreSavvy - Venom actually decides to ''take advantage'' of the knowledge that Peter held, rather than just go out and fight him like in most of his other appearances.
** When Silvermane is trying to crush Peter to death, the latter manages to shoot some webs into his eyes. Instead of dropping him, Silvermane cries out that he's blind, pauses thoughtfully, and notes that he doesn't need to see to keep crushing him. Dang.

The series draws heavily from the early comic stories by Creator/StanLee & Creator/SteveDitko, although it also draws from the [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy the film series]], ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'', more recent comics, and even ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries''. Combined with fluid animation thanks to the simple art style of artist [[http://gotcheeks.blogspot.com/ Sean "Cheeks" Galloway]], sharp dialogue, interwoven character origins and a pleasing lack of its [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries predecessor's]] crippling censorship, it was a composite adaptation of all sorts, that managed to combine all these aspects yet somehow managed to feel like its own universe.

[[http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=14223 Unfortunately for many of the fans, Sony lost the rights for TV adaptations of Spider-Man]] [[ScrewedByTheLawyers and couldn't continue]], leaving the series on a major bittersweet cliffhanger and prompting Marvel to start a new series, ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}''. What's makes this even more infuriating is that after [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries two films]] which the show was dropped for in order to produce, Sony would later share the rights with Marvel Studios due to their uncertainty over the series, making the show's cancellation even more pointless.

For those who either miss or missed out watching this show on TV, it has become one of the few ''Spider-Man'' TV shows to have all its episodes released on DVD, and the first one to receive a Blu-ray release.[[note]]Regarding the [=DVDs=], the first season received four single-disc volumes, then a 2-Disc set of the complete season. The second season only has the former option. The 4-Disc Blu-ray contains the complete series, and currently remains the only way to buy all the episodes together.[[/note]] Though strangely it is one of the few Spider-Man cartoons to be absent from (Canadian) Netflix, despite being among the most popular.

* AbusiveParents: Norman Osborn barely conceals [[WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent contempt]] for his son Harry, from [[CompassionateCritic snide criticisms]] to blatant displays of [[ParentalFavoritism favoritism]] towards Harry's ''best friend'' Peter. Harry's mother [[TheVoiceless barely acknowledges him]].

** 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 few more iconic scenes from both the movies and the comics, with a few of the lines changed to avoid a lawsuit.

* FaceHeelTurn - Eddie Brock was originally Peter's friend at the start of season one, but over time he developed a burning hatred for Peter Parker AND Spider-Man. After he bonds with the symbiote, he learns that they're the same person and becomes Venom.
** A lot of other villains count too like the Vulture (who became a villain after Norman stole his work), Mark, Colonel Jupiter, Doctor Oc, Eltro, etc.
