** Possibly Loki and Taskmaster in the third season, as well. The former suffered a seriously AdaptationalWimp in the first two seasons, and the later suffered BadassDecay in his only second season's appearence, "Ultimate Deadpool"; in "Web Warriors" they return to being characterized as dangerous {{chessmaster}}s {{Manipulative Bastard}}s and formidable fighters.

Added DiffLines:

** Nick Fury is rather disliked due to being controlling and [[DesignatedHero unheroic]], having a part in [[CreateYourOwnVillain the creation of a few of the series villains]], and often [[PoorCommunicationKills failing to relay helpful or useful information]] even when asked for it.

** Less so when Scarlet Spider actually appears, as most people agree that his character focus episodes have been well done, and many feel the plot has progressed nicely. Then again, considering the source material one could argue that it didn't have anywhere to go but up.



** Spidey's teammates; Spider-Man gets constantly blamed by them for not trusting them, wanting to work alone and trying to keep his distance from them, while they are arguing that they are his friends and teammates now. However, [[StrawmanHasAPoint Spidey's arguments to defend himself are pretty valid]]: they ''very'' forcefully insert themselves in his life without him asking them anything, and his deal with Fury ''clearly'' involved him still being allowed to work alone. Yet the show still seems to present this as him being a jerk when, for example, he ''understandably'' refuses to tell his team that [[spoiler:Harry Osborn is Venom]]. Get to an extreme when, at the end of "Venomous", he thanks them for actually acting like his friends... and they reply by pulling a prank where he is about to get beat up by S.H.I.E.L.D. training robots.\\

Added DiffLines:

** Nova and Fury, two of the most hated characters in the show, mysteriously disappear at the start of season 4 and have yet to reappear. While there is a plotline involving finding them it's been rarely touched on. Their absence is no doubt a result of the aforementioned hatred they've received.
** Given how dislike 3/4ths of Spidey's original team was in season 1 their phasing out in season 3, and getting replaced with more spider themed characters was more than likely this.


Added DiffLines:

** The other spider themed characters. Some love them, others hate them for being a rather large SpotLightStealingSquad and [[ReplacementScrappy replacement scrappies]] to Spidey's original teammates, all four of whom have long since been RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap and have become relatively well liked among the show's fanbase. There's also complaints from some fans that they also over shadow the other new recruits, most of which these fans find more interesting, such as Dagger and Cloak.

* Honestly Spider-Man has this going with most of his male teammates (and a few of his villains) on varying levels throughout the show's run.

** Peter and Flash start to get a one sided case of this after the latter begins his character development. Flash already started off being a Spidey fanboy, and after he stops bullying Peter they're shown getting rather chumy from time to time. After Flash becomes [[Agent Venom]] it arguably gets worse as we get to see him fanboying even and more often, and get to witness his shear excitement over being [[spoiler: on the team.]] Then after he finds out Peter and Spider-Man are the same during the season 3 finale he's shown to be shocked, but then portrayed as being ''even closer'' in latter episodes. Comes to a head in ''Anti-Venom'' where he acts like a jealous boyfriend due Spidey gushing about Harry (of course) and unintentionally throwing it in Flash's face. A notable moment includes Flash pointing out to Harry that Peter called him a "good friend" as he's [[spoiler: being violently assaulted by the Anti-Venom.]]

** The rivalry between Nova and Spider-Man in the first season has potential to come off as this. As Nova gets [[TookALevelInKindness nicer]] in the second season he can come off as being somewhat Tsundere towards Spidey.

* CrackShip: ComicBook/{{Nova}} and Spider-Man were also part of this trope despite the former's mistreatment of latter.

* CrackShip: ComicBook/{{Nova}} and Spider-Man were also part of this trope despite the former's mistreatment of latter. It's only been getting more popular since Nova TookALevelInKindness during Season 2.
** She-Hulk and Spidey get very little interaction during her cameo but since their dialogue can be interpreted as being mildly flirty they've gained a small but noticable fanbase.
** Pretty much any of the Iron Fist ships count.

** There's a certain degree of HoYay between Iron Fist and Spidey as well. Out of his original teammates Peter bonds with quickly and get along best with Danny, and they're shown to value each other highly. Enough so on Spider-Man's end that he once followed Danny ''across the world'' to convince him not to leave the team.

Added DiffLines:

* ItWasHisSled: Flash [[spoiler: becoming Agent Venom]] due to how [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap popular he became afterwards.]]
** [[spoiler: Harry]] being Venom due to it happening in the first season and it being referenced in later seasons.
** White Tiger's origins due to shipping.


Added DiffLines:

* LauncherOfAThousandShips: As with most animated incarnations, Spider-Man has fallen victim to this. He's been shipped with best friends Harry and MJ, most of his teammates (including the ones that come in on latter seasons), Iron Man, Norman Osborn, and many more.
* Nova, White Tiger, and Iron Fist all place in second, third, and fourth most shipped characters respectively.

* Some fans view this version of [[ChasteHero Spider-Man]] as being aromantic, as he's shown absolutely zero interest in dating -- Which is rather unusual for the character. He ''has'' gotten flustered on a couple of occasions however, so fans haven't been portraying him as asexual.

** While Harry was lucky enough not to get [[OutOfFocus phased out]] until early season 3 MJ was abandoned mid-season 2. To make it worse MJ has little importance in the first season itself during which we don't get to learn anything about her other than she's an inspiring news reporter, and that's it. Whereas Harry was a key character for at least two arcs and got a decent amount of character development.

** This also explains other inconsistencies such as the weather being all over the place (some episodes are in the dead of winter, and others are during the spring or summer at rather odd intervals) as well as address complaints that Spidey becomes to close to his team too quickly. We're not seeing the day-by-day adventures of these characters, We're seeing random in intervals into their lives that are connected with each other, which could happen weeks if not months apart from each other, giving plenty of time in-universe for these to happen.
