----

* AdorkAble: Both Peter and Twilight.
* ActionGirl: Twilight shows more traits of this [[spoiler:in the Marvel Universe]].
** The Mane Six in general.
** Princess Luna also gets a chance to show her power.
* ActorAllusion: After getting fed up with the actions of [[spoiler: James Jonah Jameson]], Twilight put [[spoiler: the Daily Bugle]] under new management, using the name [[Creator/TaraStrong Tara]] Sparkle.
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: [[spoiler: Prince]] Peter Pony Parker
* AFriendInNeed: Often resulting in [[HeartwarmingMoments Heartwarming]].
* AGodAmI: [[spoiler:NormanOsborn]], after his transformation.
* AlcoholHic: [[spoiler:Twilight and Cadance]] in chapter 42.
* AlienAmongUs: Being a human in the guise of a pony, Spidey gets to learn a lot from Equestria and it's society.
* AllLovingHero: Spidey. And everypony loves him, too.
* AlternateContinuity: The Spider-Man of this fanfic seems to have elements from both, the mainstream Marvel universe, and the Ultimate universe, as well as some elements from the films (The final consensus seems to be that he's the "Amazing" Spider-Man from Shattered Dimensions, though Edge of Time doesn't seem to have happened yet). It is also an alternate continuation of MLP Season 3, since it takes place after Sombra's first defeat in the Crystal Empire.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Twilight's mother, Velvet, shows signs of this in chapter 35.
* AnOddPlaceToSleep: Twilight mentions that she once found Peter sleeping on the ceiling of her house...
** ... And that Pinkie Pie had managed to duct tape herself to the ceiling, next to him.
* AngerBornOfWorry: Twilight is quite prone to do this.
* AnimorPhism: Of the involuntary type.
-->'''Peter:''' Oh, my God! I turned into Seabiscuit! I look more ridiculous than Spider-Ham!
* AnythingYouCanDoICanDoBetter: Rainbow Dash, while trying to prove herself as a better hero than Spider-Mane in chapter 4. [[spoiler:Or so she believes...]]
* AscendedFangirl: Twilight Velvet is a big fan of Spider-Mane. And now her daughter is his marefriend. Oh my.
* AsleepForDays: Peter, after [[spoiler:the accident in the Manehattan race]].
* BadAss: The Amazing Spider-Mane!
* BadAssBookworm: Twilight Sparkle, particulary after [[spoiler:defeating the Hulk]].
** And Peter, of course.
* BattleCouple: Peter and Twilight, after [[spoiler:entering into the Marvel Universe]].
* BeQuietNudge
* BigBad: Discord initially seems like this, but in fact the true big bad is NormanOsborn.
** DragonAscendant: Who [[spoiler: Stole Discord's powers to take over.]]
** TheStarscream: Against his will.
* BigBrotherInstinct: [[spoiler:Shining Armor]] and his initial hostility towards Peter.
* BigBrotherMentor: Peter for [[spoiler:the Cutie Mark Crusaders]].
* BlindedByTheLight: When Spider-Mane uses miniature crystal hearts to blind [[spoiler:King Sombra]].
* BrainWashed: [[spoiler:The Hulk, in chapter 44]].
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Sunset Shimmer]].
* ButtMonkey: Lyra, in her everlasting quest to prove Peter a human.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: [[spoiler:Twilight]] and Peter, both.
* CassandraTruth: [[spoiler:Lyra, as per fanon, is obsessed with humans]]. [[spoiler:She]] saw Peter in his human form on the first day, but nobody believes that he's a human. Still applies even AFTER Spidey becomes a pony.
* CasualDangerDialog: Well, it's Spider-Man. Would you expect anything less?
* CharacterDevelopment: Peter, particularly. While he is still prone to moments of self-loathing and doubt, he has come a long way from the BrokenHero that we are all familiar with.
* TheChewToy: Peter. Constantly curses his 'Parker Luck' for every insane shenanigan he suffers.
* CliffHanger: There's a LOT of these in the story.
* [[CluelessChickMagnet Mindless Mare Magnet]]: Just like in the comics, Peter gets (almost) ALL the mares.
** To elaborate, he has his main relationship with Twilight, but every single one of the Mane 6 (except Pinkie Pie) are attracted to him, and Sweetie Belle and [[spoiler:Scootaloo]] even have precocious crushes on him. And that's just from the main cast. Princess Luna finds a lot of common ground with him, Trixe treasures his friendship as her first friend, Derpy fangirls over him and even [[spoiler: Spitfire]] likes him.
* ComesGreatResponsibility: Inevitable, as the TropeNamer himself is the protagonist.
* TheComicallySerious: Luna, generally.
** Funnily enough, Comicbook/DoctorStrange is not this. He's actually quite the snark master, and a bit of a flirt.
* ComfortingComforter
* CrushBlush: They happen quite often, and they're usually of the [[LuminescentBlush bright variety]].
* CryIntoChest
* CutenessProximity: Peter suffers it. Oh, does Peter suffer it. And he feels the blow to his masculinity each time.
* DarkAndTroubledPast
* DarkerAndEdgier: Obviously, when compared with MLP:FIM, especially since it incorporates some elements from the Ultimate Marvel universe (which loves this trope). For the most part, however, it's a pretty light story.
* DefrostingIceQueen: There is a non-romantic example, with Peter trying to win [[spoiler:Princess Luna's]] trust, and even teaching her to loosen up a little in the process. The non-romantic part [[ShipTease starts to get a little iffy]] after he succeeds, especially in chapter 35.
** Also, [[spoiler:Trixie]].
* DeadpanSnarker: It's Spider-Man. He's obviously here.
* DeathGlare: [[spoiler:Blueblood]] is given one by most of the Mane Six in Chapter 40, after he insults Peter.
** PlayedForLaughs. Twilight gives Peter one whenever she gets annoyed by some of his references.
* TheDeterminator: Spider-Man, obviously. When the ponies start to learn more about his past and his reputation back in New York, they can't help but admire his willingness to keep fighting for people that distrust him or outright hate him.
** Also, Rainbow Dash, when trying to prove that she's a better hero than Pete, and going as far as to [[spoiler:enter into a dragon's lair as a "Test of Bravery".]]
** And Lyra, and [[spoiler:her obsession with proving that Spider-Mane is a human.]]
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Happens a few times:
** In chapter 4, when Peter [[spoiler: knocks out a dragon with one kick]].
** His fight against [[spoiler: King Sombra]] in chapter 30.
** Also, defeating [[spoiler: the two ruling princesses of Equestria]] causes this reaction on the ponies.
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: [[spoiler:Twilight's premonitions of the upcoming battle with Osborn]].
* EmbarrassingNickname: Peter likes to call Rainbow after a certain candy...
** While Pinkie likes to call him Peter Pony Parker.
* EurekaMoment: [[spoiler:When Lyra deduces that Peter Parker and Spider Mane are one in the same]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[spoiler:Discord]] seemed to be quite disturbed after hearing that [[spoiler:the Green Goblin]] wouldn't think twice about blowing up innocent bystanders.
--> [[spoiler:'''Discord:''' I enjoy the fun type of chaos. Thatís just... demented.]]
* EvilMakesYouMonstrous: [[spoiler: Norman Osborn]], after absorbing [[spoiler: Discord's chaotic]] powers, achieves a form similar to the [[spoiler: Ultimate Green Goblin]].
* ExhaustedEyeBags
* Facepalm: Twilight's ocassional reaction towards Peter's comments.
* FantasticArousal: Pegasi ponies[[spoiler: and alicorns.]]
* [[spoiler:FailureToSaveMurder]]
* {{Fainting}}: During chapter 38, after [[spoiler:watching the memory where Osborn gets impaled by his own glider]], Fluttershy makes use of this trope.
** Also, a more comical example turns up in chapter 46, when Peter gets a large amount of money from [[spoiler:[[IronMan Tony Stark]]]]
* FightingYourFriend: Occassionaly, Peter will spar with Rainbow Dash. There's also the time he have a duel with [[spoiler:Princess Celestia and Luna]].
* FirstGirlWins: Twilight is the first pony that Peter meets upon his arrival to Equestria. You can guess how things go from there...
* FishOutOfWater
* FriendToAllChildren
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Twilight's condition when she is conjuring up a spell to stop [[spoiler:a brainwashed Hulk]].
* GreenEyedMonster: [[spoiler:Blueblood]] is quite jealous of the attention Peter receives from mares, namely the Mane Six.
* GuiltComplex: Peter, and, as always, taking it to ludicrous levels.
* HannibalLecture: [[spoiler:Sombra]] delivers one to Peter while trying to brainwash him.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: [[spoiler:Cadance]] is one, apparently.
* HarmlessVillain: Peter doesn't sees [[spoiler:Discord]] as actually evil, but more as an annoying jerk, especially when comparing [[spoiler: him]] to some members of his RoguesGallery.
* HeartbrokenBadass
* HeldGaze
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: While this is nothing new for Peter, sometimes during the story, he seems to take it [[UpToEleven even further]] than in the comics.
* HeroicBSOD: Twilight is reduced to tears when she read the prophecy that says Peter would die.
* HeroicWillpower: It should be obvious by now.
* [[HoldingHands Holding Hooves]]
* HowDoIShotWeb: Peter, while trying to learn uicorn magic. He even quotes it.
* HumanityEnsues: Starting from chapter 43.
* HumbleHero
* HurtingHero: Since the story takes place just one month after [[spoiler:ComicBook/TheNightGwenStacyDied]], and this been Spider-Man we are talking about, this was unavoidable.
** In fact, the main purpose of this story is to try and give him some respite from all the crap he has gone through in his career as a superhero.
* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: [[spoiler:Shining]] to Peter.
* ImHavingSoulPains: From the battle in [[spoiler:the Helicarrier]], to the battle with [[spoiler:Sunset Shimmer]], the ponies who have developed a close relationship with Peter, start feeling pain whenever he's close to die.
* ImplausibleFencingPowers: Apparently, [[spoiler:Celestia]] has a sword of [[spoiler:her]] own, and is ridiculously proficient with it.
** To be fair, [[spoiler:she]] uses magic to wield it and fight with it.
* InconvenientSummons: Spidey is brought to Equestria via one of this.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Peter's career as a hero, [[spoiler:as shown to the ponies via his flashbacks]].
* INeedAFreakingDrink: Shining Armor in chapter 42.
* InterspeciesRomance: Played with, as Spidey becomes a pony. Understandably, he still freaks out over it, [[spoiler:especially after he hooks up with Twilight.]]
* IWantGrandkids: Used as a joke by [[spoiler:Twilight's mom, Velvet]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[spoiler:Trixie]], as shown when she starts to open up to others.
* JerkassFacade: [[spoiler:Trixie]] believes that no one will accept her for who she really is, and thus decides to put on a mask.
* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. They don't actually get inside of his head, but rather, they just [[spoiler: take a look at his memories]].
* JerkAss: [[spoiler:Prince Blueblood]].
** Also, [[spoiler:Trixie]], at first.
* JustInTime
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: For those who felt that [[spoiler:Babs Seed]] got off scot-free, there's chapter 48.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Doctor Octopus]], as stated in chapter 45.
** [[spoiler:As of chapter 51, you can add King Sombra to that list.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Knighting}}: Peter Pony Parker, personal knight of Princess Twilight Sparkle]].
* LadyAndKnight: [[spoiler:Twilight and Peter]].
* LeotardOfPower: Part of Twilight's costume [[spoiler:after her trip to Earth with Peter and Spike]].
* LeParkour: Since the buildings in Ponyville tend to be only two stories high, this is Spider-Mane's main form to move around.
* LetsGetDangerous: While Equestria citizens admire Spider-Mane, they won't become aware of his full power until his seemingly hopeless [[spoiler:duel with the Princesses of the moon and the sun]]. [[SarcasmMode Hopeless, indeed]].
** Peter, again, at the end of chapter 29.
* LighterAndSofter: Most definitely, when compared with the comics.
** Also, the SugarBowl land of Equestria is a very nice change of setting, according to Peter. This comes as no surprise, considering how his [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse home]] [[CrapsackWorld world]] tends to be.
* LightheartedRematch: In chapter 41, between Peter and [[spoiler:Spitfire]].
* LoveConfession
* MagicalLand: [[DeadpanSnarker Take a wild guess]].

* ModestRoyalty: Princess Twilight and [[spoiler:Prince Peter]].
* NotAMorningPerson: Peter, much to Twilight's annoyance.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:King Sombra]].
* NotSoStoic: [[spoiler:Trixie]], and much to her embarrassment, most of the time.
** [[spoiler:Luna]] is feeling the effects of this, as well.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: In chapter 12 when Rarity and Applejack find Peter [[spoiler:pinned to the ground in the royal garden, and hugged tightly by Fluttershy]]. Turns out that [[spoiler:she]] was only frightened by [[spoiler:Princess Luna]]'s appearance.
* OfficialCouple: Spider-Mane and Twilight.
* OneHitKill: During his [[spoiler: royal duel with Luna]], Peter, accidentally delivers one to [[spoiler: her]] forehead [[spoiler: (it only knocks her out, though)]].
* PairTheSmartOnes: Peter and Twilight. The nerd and the dork, the chemist and the bookworm, etc.
* PrecociousCrush: [[spoiler:Sweetie Bell]] develops one towards Peter.
* [[spoiler:ProphecyTwist]]: As of Chapter 46, it seems to be heading towards this direction. However, nothing has been confirmed yet.

Peter ultimately decides on the former.]]
* SecondLove: Twilight, especially since WordOfGod states that she serves as the Mary-Jane of this story (except that Twilight is more capable of defending herself). Funnily enough, Applejack, who has had the least ShipTease with Spidey (aside from Pinkie Pie), reminds him of Gwen.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: The reason behind [[spoiler:Spidey's duels with Celestia and Luna]].
* SecurityCling: Happens quite a lot.
* ShipperOnDeck: Applejack and Cadence for Peter x Twilight.
* ShootTheTelevision: Twilight in chapter 49.
* ShoutOut: Peter does this quite a few times, much to the confusion (and in Twilight's case, annoyance) of Equestria's denizens, since they can't get any of the references. True to his usual style, he continues LONG after Twilight voices her displeasure... or because of it.
** Chapter 42, when Peter [[spoiler:tries to think of a superhero name for Twilight, he suggests... Equestria Girl]].
** Chapter 43 ends with [[spoiler: the intro Marvel Ultimate Alliance]] without Spider-Man.
** [[spoiler:Peter's second and final battle with Sombra (spanning chapters 50 & 51) is almost beat-for-beat the same battle WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack has with the cursed Viking warrior.]]
* ShutUpHannibal: Peter gives one to [[spoiler:King Sombra]] in chapter 50.
* SicEm: Chapter 30.
* SickeninglySweethearts: Spike accuses Peter and Twilight of being this, whenever they make out in front of him.
* SleepCute: Peter, is guilty of it, according to Twilight.
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: Poor, poor [[spoiler:Fluttershy.]]
** As of chapter 34, [[spoiler: Twilight joins in, even lampshading that she understands how Fluttershy feels.]]
* SpitTake: Peter makes use of this trope in chapter 35, due to a comment from Twilight's mother.

* TheChosenOne: Spider-Man is the focus of a very ominous prophecy.
* TheDragon: [[spoiler:Sunset Shimmer]] seems to be this to [[spoiler:Norman Osborn]].
* TheMessiah: Peter turns more into this, as the story progresses.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: [[spoiler:Norman Osborn]].
* [[spoiler:TrappedInAnotherWorld: It seems that Spider-Man's summoning was a one-way trip only.]]
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: [[spoiler:Norman Osborn]].

* TookALevelInBadass: In chapter 43, Spike [[spoiler:gets turned into an older, taller and stronger version of himself, but while still retaining his child persona]].
--> [[spoiler:'''Osborn''': It is God's will that I kill Peter Parker, and whose will is above mine now?]]
* TsunDere: [[spoiler: Trixie]] is quite fond of this.
** Also, [[spoiler: Princess Luna]] and [[spoiler: Rainbow Dash]] to a lesser extent.
* WeakButSkilled: The cast's assessment of Spidey when he's going against Spitfire. Spitfire is naturally faster, but Peter has his Spider Sense and the acrobatic agility to go full speed at all times while she has to slow down. At all OTHER times though, this does not take.
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: At first, Twilight seems to be unable to understand her feelings for Peter, due to her [[NoSocialSkills social awkwardness]].
** [[spoiler:Princess Luna]] seems to be a good example of this, too.
* [[spoiler:YearInsideHourOutside: Peter learns, in chapter 43, that after spending three months in Equestria, four years have gone by on Earth.]]
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: The ponies often remind Peter of this, when he's in one of his HeroicSelfDeprecation moments.
* YoureCuteWhenYoureAngry: Peter's comment to Twilight in Chapter 48.
* [[spoiler:YouCantFightFate]]: During a conversation between Celestia and Madame Web, the former states that Peter's arrival in Equestria [[spoiler:has only altered his prophecy, but it hasn't stopped it]].
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Osborn]]'s declaration to the Sinister Six after he starts absorbing [[spoiler:Discord]]'s powers.
** And again in chapter 48, when [[spoiler:Osborn]] brainwashes [[spoiler:Sunset Shimmer]] to make her fight until she dies, and declares that he has no more use for her.
