* CreatorsPet: Videoman
* HarsherInHindsight: The opening to "The Origin of the Spider-Friends" has StanLee explain that this episode will answer viewers' questions about the series, saying, "Well, at good old Marvel, we listen to our fans." Not all the time, especially with [[ComicBook/OneMoreDay one particular example]].
* HilariousInHindsight:
** Wolverine is Canadian, but in his only speaking appearance on this series, actor Neil Ross used an Australian accent. Fans reacted badly to the very idea of this, but twenty years later [[Creator/HughJackman a bona fide Australian]] [[Film/XMen would play the mutant hero]].
** Norman Osborn physically transforming into the Green Goblin in the first episode. Stark contrast to 616-Marvel, but fits in much better with ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'' a couple decades later. Perhaps Creator/BrianMichaelBendis was watching back in the day.
** [[WesternAnimation/KimPossible Another show]] features a [[RedHeadedHero Red-Headed Heroine]] with an AlphaBitch named Bonnie.
** Videoman's second appearance involves a malfunctioning arcade machine giving a complete dweeb the ability to transform into a superpowered alternate self and back. In other words, it's almost the exact same concept as WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}.
** The Sandman's episode ends with him growing to massive size and fighting our heroes at a construction sight. [[Film/SpiderMan3 Sound familiar?]]
* MorePopularSpinoff - On purpose. ''Amazing Friends'' came about after a 26-episode ''Spider-Man'' series (which was actually quite good, for what it's worth) produced largely to get the big networks' attention. It worked.
* NarmCharm - Makes the "Swarm" episode one of the greatest things produced by man. "SWAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRMMMMMMMM!"
* NightmareFuel: The imposter Spider-Man's InvoluntaryTransformation into the Arachnoid.
** Juggernaut might count for some as well. Most of the episode consists of him doing his ImplacableMan impression, wading through everything the heroes throw at him, even when Firestar, the last thing standing between the Juggernaut and his target Prof. X, created a wall of fire to stop him. The Juggernaut walks right into the fire, creating this large silhouette in the flame as his voice echoes, "I'M COMING FOR YOU, CHARLES XAVIER!" The utter look of fear and helplessness on Prof. X's face as the Juggernaut gets closer really sells it, and if Spider-Man hadn't pulled the Professor out of the way at the last second, they make it clear that the Juggernaut would have carried out his threat and killed Charles right there.
* VillainDecay: Dr. Doom, especially in comparison to the previous Spider-Man cartoon in which he was the BigBad.
