* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Ursula, the shy daughter of Peter's landlord, who a substantial amount of fans would have preferred to see Peter get together with rather than MJ.
** Doc Ock, who is often considered the trilogy's best villain.
* EvenBetterSequel: This is widely thought of as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time.
* MemeticMutation: [[{{Website/YTMND}} Whoa.....he stole that guy's PIZZA!]] Quickly became one of the site's most popular fads, with imaginative re-cuts of films and music videos with Donnell Rawlings, even including the two musical stings right after his line.
* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The [[VideoGame/SpiderMan2 video game adaption]] is also held in high regard as one of the best superhero games of all time (many considered it THE best until the release of the BatmanArkhamSeries 5 years later), and alongside ''VideoGame/TheIncredibleHulkUltimateDestruction'', revived the "Superhero Sandbox" genre after ''{{VideoGame/Superman 64}}'' destroyed its credibility.
** ScrappyMechanic: People ''hate'' the kids who lose their balloons. The ''VideoGame/UltimateSpiderMan'' game [[TakeThatScrappy took a jab at it]] by having the first person that the player-controlled Venom kills in the game be [[KickTheSonOfABitch an obnoxious little kid with a balloon]]. In the same vein, the children's crying and whining over their lost balloons for almost every player became the MostAnnoyingSound.
