  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: Never actually gave Peter the "with great power" line in the original... origin, but he says it in just about every adaptation.
    • Also a retcon. Peter mentions that he DID tell him the line any time he gets the chance.
  • Cool Old Guy: In Ultimate Spider-Man, and quite a few flashbacks.
  • Death by Origin Story
  • Happily Married
  • Killed Off for Real: Due to Death by Origin Story. He's pretty much the only Marvel character who hasn't come back from the dead.
  • The Obi-Wan: It varies in continuity to continuity, but he is the main inspiration in Peter's resolution to do good.
    • In Ultimate Spider-Man he's brought back to life in the Nightmare world to haunt Peter with the fact that he couldn't save him. Instead he shows his approval for what Peter's doing and gives sage advice and encouragement.
  • Parental Substitute
    • Uncle Wolf: One flashback to Peter's childhood has him chasing off a few bullies harassing Peter with a baseball bat.
