* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Nick Fury clearly is intended by the writers to be seen as a BigGood and ReasonableAuthorityFigure. Problem is, many fans see him more like a DesignatedHero ControlFreak who basically blackmailed Peter into joining SHIELD, keeps not holding his side of the bargain, leaves him very little freedom (he placed camera in his house, has an agent pose as his principal and made his teammates forcefully insert themselves in his life), and has a spectacular record of [[CreateYourOwnVillain creating his own villains]]. This wouldn't be so much a problem if these were ''aknowledged'' as flaws to make Fury a morally grey character- but the show lacks any self-awareness on the topic, and keeps portraying him as always in the right.

* NeverLiveItDown: For the show itself, both the over abundance of gags in the first two seasons and the admittedly mediocre writing that occurred for most of the first two season will forever be reason some people choose to avoid this show. Character wise Fury will never live down his DesignatedHero status he created for himself in the first season. On a meta-note the common misconception that the show ''somehow'' had something to do with the previous Spider-Man show getting cut short is a common source of bad press among the Marvel fandom as a whole.

** The concept of Mary Jane getting powers and donning a spider costume is nothing new as well since in Marvel's multiverse there is an alternate universe where Mary Jane acquired spider powers instead of Peter classic example include ''{{Marvel Mangaverse}}'' and recent {{ComicBook/Renew Your Vows}} where she fought alongside Peter and their daughter and recently in possession of a symbiote costume.

* InternetBackdraft: Spider-Man being turned into Spider-Ham by Loki. As soon as the trailers were revealed, several fans were outraged, stating this was an attack to Spidey's dignity. And things ''didn't'' get better when the episode was up.

* AssPull: Doc Ock [[spoiler: getting a redeeming moment in helping Spidey save the other heroes]] in the climax of the series finale [[spoiler: and his last appearance implying that Iron Man is going to give him a job at Stark Industries. After his role in Season 4 as the KnightOfCerebus Archenemy who kept further crossing the MoralEventHorizon with each new episode, it feels very unearned and makes Ock a major KarmaHoudini. Then again, if ''[[Series/AvengersAssemble Avengers: Ultron Revolution]]'' is anything to go by, Ock may still be in Iron Man's custody]].

* LoveItOrHateIt: This show in a nutshell; just read the other tropes on this page to figure out why.



* RootingForTheEmpire: Our heroes consist of a protagonist whose sense of humor ''[[LoveItOrHateIt really]]'' depends on personal taste and his teammates who regularly mistreat him. Many villains are usually composed of CreepyAwesome characters who have excellent vocalization on the part of their actors, and tend to be the part many people think is [[JustHereForGodzilla worth watching]]. There's also the fact that some major villains on the show are portrayed in a very sympathetic light. Particularly [[spoiler:Venom, who is actually Harry Osborn, who is genuinely a good person, who cannot control the symbiote and is easily the most sympathetic character on the show.]]

** Following a LoveItOrHateIt reception for the first two seasons, Web Warriors has made some fans admit the show can be good at times, but it's still overall quite mediocre.

** Some fans decried Mary Jane expressing an interest in journalism as making her an {{expy}} of ComicBook/LoisLane--expected during the "Ultimate Knights" arc shortly before ''ComicBook/{{Ultimatum}}'', the MJ of the actual ComicBook/UltimateMarvel comics displayed an interest in journalism and even joined the Midtown's school network after filming a report and [[spoiler:and after Peter's "death", she typed up a story about how she felt the world and Nick Fury, killed Spider-Man with the intent of sending it to various media outlets.]]

* HarsherInHindsight: Every [[Heartwarming/{{UltimateSpider-Man}} heartwarming moment]] with [[spoiler: the Scarlet Spider]] became a lot less so in light of [[spoiler: "The New Sinister 6, Part 1",]] where it was revealed that [[spoiler: he, and not Rhino, was really TheMole for Octavius, meaning those moments consisted of him stringing Peter, Flash, Aunt May, and others along as part of his cover to make it hurt worse when he betrays Peter and unmasks him to Ock.]]
** Likewise, depending on whether or not [[spoiler: Scarlet Spider is a clone (which given his resemblance to Peter, he probably is)]] those couple of times Doc Ock managed to catch Spider-Man become even darker than they already were, especially the times he successfully [[spoiler: acquired blood]] from Spidey.

%%* {{Misblamed}}: Too many examples to list. It's safe to say a few of them are unjustified.
