* CreatorsPet: Arachne, to the point where Taymour compared cutting any of her songs or scenes to a ''mastectomy.'' Needless to say, after Taymour was fired Arachne's part was gutted, turning her into TheArtifact.

* AwesomeMusic: All the songs, with "Rise Above" and "Freaks Like Me" being among the best.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: An overhaul of the play was made after weeks of being torn to shreds by critics. See "Growing The Beard" for details.
* AwesomeMusic: All the songs, with "Rise Above" and "Freaks "A Freak Like Me" Me Needs Company" being among the best.



* DancingBear: A lot of people admittedly went to see this because of the fact that it's a musical based on a superhero. Earlier on in the play's production, people went to see it because of the negative reception the play was getting.



* GrowingTheBeard: The play is considered to have improved significantly after it was overhauled, cutting out elements that were widely hated and adding more content to the things that people liked. The biggest change would be from switching the BigBad from Arachne (a CreatorsPet) to The Green Goblin (an EnsembleDarkhorse).



* PainfulRhyme / LyricalShoehorn: The lyrics to "A Freak Like Me Needs Company" were written in a hurry, and sometimes it shows.
* SoBadItsGood: The previews all sold out very quickly based solely on this principal. A 60 million dollar avant-garde trainwreck is ''worth seeing'', to say the least.
** There was a sequence in the original version of the play where Arachne has a musical number ''[[MundaneMadeAwesome based around shopping]]''. It was considered the epitome of this trope.
* SoOkayItsAverage: This seems to be the general consensus among critics, at least in regards to the final version.

* UncannyValley: Many of the more elaborate costumes left over from Taymor's version fall squarely into this, [[MalevolentMaskedMen especially the villains]].

** The Goblin trying to leave a message on the ''Daily Bugle's'' answering machine. The message itself is an over the top threat to Spider-Man.
