----
* ActorAllusion: In the episode "First Steps," the Sandman is obsessed with getting his "big score." The same actor voiced Bender in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', including the movie ''Bender's Big Score''.
* ChannelHop - Moved to DisneyXD from [=CW4Kids=] in March 2009.
* TheDanza - StanLee as Stan the Dockworker.
* DoingItForTheArt: Beck seems to view the disguises and special effects he uses for his crimes as akin to acting and is concerned about putting on a good performance.
* ExecutiveMeddling - The original plan was to create extra material for each episode, then use it to edit each Story Arc into a movie for the DVD releases. But only the first arc was released like this before Sony switched to just plain episodes on DVD, leaving extra footage we might not ever see.
* FakeBrit: Mysterio speaks in a hammy, pseudo-British accent.
* FanNickname: Many.
** THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-BRO.
** Doc Ock has two. Pre-breakdown is "[[TheWoobie D'awww]]c Ock", post- is "DOCTOR OCTOPUS, LORD OF THE VAMPIRES" due to his rather vampire-esque attire in "Gangland".
** Due to the various girls that Peter/Spidey attracts, fans have decided to rename the show "BITCHES LOVE SPIDER-MAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES".
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3 Young Ocelot]] (Creator/JoshKeaton) is Peter Parker/Spider-Man.
*** For added [[{{Irony}} irony points]], Josh voiced Harry Osborn in the first two video game adaptations of the Spider-Man movies. [[MindScrew Think about that one for a second.]]
**** And Harry as the New Goblin in ''VideoGame/SpiderManFriendOrFoe''. Helping in the irony? The below-mentioned Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor, who voiced Harry, did the voice of Spider-Man in ''[[VideoGame/SpiderManBattleForNewYork Spider-Man: Battle for New York]]'' and the aforementioned ''Friend or Foe'', making Josh as Spidey and James as Harry a literal role reversal.
** [[TheWildThornberrys Eliza Thornberry]] (LaceyChabert) is Gwen Stacy.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Tidus]] and [[StarWarsTheCloneWars Obi-Wan Kenobi]] (Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor) are Harry Osborn [[TalkingToHimself and]] Frederick Foswell.

*** Dee Bradley Baker also voiced both the Lizard and Dr. Connors personas in the two PS1 Spider-Man games.
** [[Franchise/{{DCAU}} John Stewart]] and {{WesternAnimation/Static|Shock}} (PhilLaMarr) are Robbie Robertson [[TalkingToHimself and]] his son Randy.
** [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond Max]], [[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated Blackarachnia]], and [[Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire Princess Kida]] (Creator/CreeSummer) are Glory Grant.

*** Speaking of Goliath, a number of voice actors from ''Gargoyles'', also appear on the show. [[EdAsner Uncle Ben]], [[Creator/ClancyBrown Captain Stacy]], [[Creator/CreeSummer Glory]], [[Creator/XanderBerkeley Mysterio]], and [[KathSoucie Martha Connor]] were respectively Hudson, Hakon/Tomas Brod/Wolf, Hyena, Coldsteel, and Princess Katherine/Ophelia/The Weird Sisters/Maggie Reed.

* IKnewIt: In the first season, we are introduced to the Green Goblin. Most people by now know that [[spoiler: Norman Osborn]] is the Green Goblin, and at first the show didn't do much to deny this, giving several indications that it was he. Then later that season, we were shown that it was in fact [[spoiler: Harry Osborn]]. When Goblin made his return in the second season, the final episodes played up the idea that other people could be the Goblin, giving the audience some very serious misdirection. Of course, all of this was proven to be just subterfuge, as in the final episode it was revealed that the Goblin had, in fact, been [[spoiler: Norman Osborn]] all along.
** Adding to the confusion, of course, was the fact that [[spoiler:Harry Osborn]] was ''also'' the Goblin in the comics for a while.
* NamesTheSame: A variant; Weisman has admitted that part of the reason Silvermane and Silver Sable are related here is because they both have "Silver" in their names.
** Ricochet takes the name of another unrelated Marvel character for his superpowered identity.
* TheOtherDarrin - After the first episode, Keith David is replaced with Kevin Michael Richardson in the role of Tombstone. In the Enforcers' debut, Creator/ClancyBrown did Ox's grunts, but when the Enforcers returned in season 2 and Ox actually speaks, he was voiced by Creator/DannyTrejo.
* PlayingAgainstType:
** Creator/ClancyBrown is known more often as a man who plays MagnificentBastard type characters, or outright amoral ones. Here he plays [[TheBrute the brutish]] [[DumbMuscle Rhino]] and [[TheGoodCaptain George]] [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Stacey]].
** Creator/KellyHu, who usually plays {{Action Girl}}s ({{dark|Action Girl}} or otherwise), voices average high-school student Sha Shan Nguyen.
** BenDiskin, who usually plays heroes, voices the villainous and psychotic Venom.
** Creator/SteveBlum normally voices calm characters with lower voices. Here, he voices the loud, scenery-chewing and high-pitched Green Goblin.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Unlike most cases of the trope, there was no malice behind the cancellation of the show, just poorly timed legalities. After Disney's purchase of Marvel, Sony gave up the broadcasting rights of airing Spider-Man TV shows during negotiations to keep their film rights (Which are obviously far more lucrative). Since they still technically owned the show, Disney would have had to pay ''Sony'' to continue producing it.
* ShortRunInPeru - Canada aired the entire second season before the US even started on it. And then Disney put it on hiatus midway through…
* TalkingToHimself - Several instances.
** Of special note has to go to the symbiote, whoever he bonds with, the character's voice actor does the voice of the symbiote, doing a more twisted and [[NightmareFuel freaky]] voice as the symbiote.
** Not seen in action, but PhilLaMarr also voices Randy's father and ''Daily Bugle'' editor, Robbie Robertson.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** The show's head honcho, Greg Weisman, had rough plans for a total of 65 episodes (39 more than what we got). He also had plans for Hobgoblin, Scorpion, and Hydro-Man.
** And there were also rumors about Carnage (Cletus Kassidy was seen in season 2) as well as the Clone Saga (Miles Warren gained full control over Curt Connors' lab at the end of season 2).
** Emily Osborn was to have been given a larger role and was to be voiced by Marina Sirtis, a.k.a. [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} Demona]].
** Weisman's aspirations also included finishing the series with Peter's graduation from High School, then doing four straight to DVD movies, covering Peter's college years.
** Christopher Yost was up for the executive producer job on ''Spectacular Spider-Man''. They went with Weisman instead. [[https://twitter.com/yost/status/209086069159886848]]
** Weisman said that had the show continued, he considered using [[ComicBook/BrandNewDay Mr. Negative]].
** Weisman also planned to make Mary Jane to become Peter's main love interest at some point down the line. Which becomes interesting if we consider that he also decided to NOT [[spoiler:kill off Gwen]].
* WordOfGod: Mark Allen is [[CompositeCharacter Mark Raxton and Bennett Brant]].
