Characters: Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions
- Adorkable: They ARE cool, but the times they try to be cool are just dorky. Least seen with Noir, who had much of the adorable smashed out of him.
- Alternate Self: All of the Spideys are different versions of Peter Parker. Except Miguel O'Hara, Spider-Man 2099.
- Badass: They're Spider-Man. It's inevitable.
- Badass Bookworm: All of them are nerds and are incredibly smart. Amazing's a radiologist, Noir's studying science for college, O'Hara's a geneticist and Ultimate's the school nerd.
- Deadpan Snarker: Duh. Spidey trademark, natch.
- Snark-to-Snark Combat: With the villains who actually want to talk to them, and with the beleaguered Madame Webb.
- Healing Factor: All of them have health regeneration. Noir has the fastest health regeneration when he's undetected.
- Improv Fu: The Spideys mostly rely on their acrobatics and super strength instead of any set form. Well, except for Noir, who somehow knows Chinese Kung Fu.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: One of their most powerful moves, Eight-Legged Fury. All of them have an awesome version.
- Amazing Spider Man pummels them so fast, he makes Speed Echoes.
- Ultimate Spider-Man unleashes a massive tentacle tackle.
- Spider-Man Noir throws out Chinese Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs
- Spider Man 2099 slashes out a massive Spin Attack.
- Pungeon Master: Dear lord. Especially seen with Ultimate, who annoys Electro so much HE tries to strike back with his own puns but fails.
- Resigned to the Call: Originally weren't superheroes, but we all know how that went.
- Jumped at the Call: On the other hand, they have no problems helping Madame Webb. And Noir DEFINITELY had no problems with getting a shot at vengeance.
- Vigilante Man: Technically still outside the law. Most traditionally seen with Noir, whose setting needs somebody outside the law.
Amazing Spider-Man/Peter Parker
Who am I to refuse a lovely lady? Lead on, MW.
Spidey (or the closest character to it) and the one who makes the most use of his webbing - much of his fighting style consists of grabbing nearby objects with weblines and using them to pound on his enemies.
- Combat Tentacles: In a departure from most depictions of Spider-Man, the Amazing version uses his webs as flails, usually by web-grabbing rocks and slinging them around.
- Dishing Out Dirt: A lot of his more powerful moves involve rocks or boulders.
- Genre Savvy: So much so that he predicts nearly every trap set up for him (given how long he's been in the business, this is understandable). Granted, he's never actually able to do anything about it, but the guy deserves credit for trying.
- Improvised Weapon: He relies more on using objects scattered around the background for heavy attacks.
- Lightning Bruiser: Compared to the other versions, his fighting style moves him all over the place, making him hard to hit, and his attacks incorporate webbing as a weapon to have a really long reach and hit large groups of enemies multiple times very quickly. There's a reason he doesn't have a Super-Meter like the other combat-heavy Spider-Men. He doesn't NEED it.
- Morph Weapon: He can shape his webs into any form he wants them to take, mostly hammers and flails.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He started the whole adventure by breaking the tablet in the intro. A literal case of Nice Job Breaking It, Hero.
Noir Spider-Man/Peter Parker
This version of Spider-Man
Say your prayers, punks. Here comes the Spider-Man.
Voiced By: Christopher Daniel Barnes
prefers to work at night, where he can hide in the shadows and pick his enemies off at his leisure. He can't take quite as much punishment as the others (hence the stealth), but can still go one-on-one with fragment-powered supervillains.
- Awesome, yet Impractical: A lot of his takedowns are not silent at all, and take way too long. Close-range takedowns are even worse since you literally have no excuse except challenges to do them. longer range ones are possibly subverted as you can drag enemies into the shadows before you knock them out, and then web zip somewhere else if someone hears you.
- Blow You Away: His crowd control and uppercut moves have a wind theme for their names.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Black all over, and sticks to the shadows to takedown foes stealthily and brutally. An idealist despite how dark his world is.
- Always Night: All of Noir's levels take place at night. Justified, as stealth is his modus operandi and his black costume helps hide him from all the mooks, and all the villains' operations take place at night.
- Fights Like a Normal: The other Spider-Men have their durability, so they can just charge in and tank everything. Noir takes on people with guns as a a normal unarmed person would: by sneaking up and doing them in silently. Even in direct combat he barely relies on web powers. Probably because he just got them. Notably, he's the only Spider-Man with any sort of recognizable fighting style, specifically a combination of Good Old Fisticuffs and Chinese Martial arts. Really supports how some think Spidey relies too much on his Spider-Sense.
- Glowing Eyes of Doom: Due to the art style of the game, Noir's goggles have a white glow.
- Goggles Do Nothing: Subverted. They hide his eyes and face because they glow in the dark.
- It's Personal: Notably, unlike the other Spider-Men who simply take the villains as they come, this Peter Parker has suffered much at their hands and HATES them with a passion. Seen especially with Vulture and Osborn.
- Ninja Run: When he hides in the shadows, Noir runs like this. In the light, he runs normally.
- Ordinary High-School Student: Saving up for college.
- Stealth Expert: Practically walks past outposts filled with armed gangsters, leaving behind webbed up bodies.
- Vertical Kidnapping: One of his favorite tactics.
- Weak, but Skilled: Unlike the other Spider-Men who can easily tank gunshots and dodge them with ease, Noir has to rely on hiding. However, he's GOOD at it, mastering his web and crawling powers instantly to stealth kill with ease. He even uses Chinese martial arts instead of mere acrobatics or webbing like the other Spider-Men.
- You Killed My Uncle: Towards Vulture.
2099 Spider-Man/Miguel O'Hara
That's me, out to save the universe and look good while doing it!
Voiced By: Dan Gilvezan
The only Spider-Man in the game who isn't an incarnation of Peter Parker
. Has Bullet Time
Powers and light-speed attacks.
- Free-Fall Fight: One of his trademarks, falling through the high skies of Nuevo York while beating up bad guys and destroying jetbikes.
- Future Slang: The multi-purpose "shock".
- She-Fu: Most visibly out of all the Spider-Men, his attacks are femininely acrobatic. All of his heavy attacks and his Spider Swipe and Spider Fang combos are all involve long strings of extended kicks, almost making him a Kick Chick.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot
- Bullet Time: His Accelerated Vision.
- Lightning Bruiser: Combat speed wise, he isn't as fast as Amazing, but he's still the next fastest. So fast, in fact, that he leaves after-images behind when he attacks.
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: The only non-Peter Parker Spider Man. Almost literal, as he's from the future and therefore the last.
- Was It Really Worth It?: His reaction to beating Scorpion.
Madame Webb: Congratulations Spider Man, the day is yours!
Spider Man: Yeah? Then why do I feel so bad about it?
- Wolverine Claws: The claws on his costume aren't just design. He uses slash attacks a lot. They sadly don't have the poisonous Spider Venom.
Ultimate Spider-Man/Peter Parker
The youngest of the four
See you later, older and less-cool versions of me.
. Madame Web provides him with (a new version of?) the black suit, which she telepathically keeps in check so he doesn't go all Evil Costume Switch
- Butt Monkey: Out of all the Spider-Men in the game, he gets the worst treatment.
- Clothes Make The Spider Man: While he has his own powers, the black suit provides the basis for his fighting style in this game.
- Combat Tentacles / Lovecraftian Superpower: He'd typically operate as Amazing Spider-Man-lite otherwise.
- Lightning Bruiser: Third fastest of all the Spider-Men, with his black suit powers and his rage mode making his own unique fighting style.
- OOC Is Serious Business: For the most part, he's as snarky as the other Spideys... then comes Carnage's level, which has him completely on edge and much more serious (though he still makes some jokes, such as referring to Carnage as "a monster made of malevolent spaghetti").
- Ordinary High-School Student
- Super Mode: The Rage Mode. Activate it, keep mashing light attack, and boom, the room is cleared.
- Unstoppable Rage: An ability from the symbiote suit.

This is what real power feels like!
Hey spider, wanna go a few rounds?
It's time for the Vulture to feast!
The Goblin/Norman Osborn
I have this unfortunate tendency to... kill things when I'm bored.
Call me the Hobgoblin! Every Spider-Man needs one.
Will hurt others if followed!

- Anti-Villain: While he wasn't a nice guy before he became Scorpion, it's made incredibly clear that he just wants to be human again, nothing else.
- Beware My Stinger Tail
- Canon Immigrant: Given the 2099 universe is based on the classic version, the fact they opted to make Kron Stone Scorpion ala Timestorm: 2009-2099 rather than Venom as in the classic 2099 universe could count as this.
- Lampshaded in the loading screen comments, which theorizes that they're either one-in-the-same or that "Kron Stone" is a common name in 2099.
- Lightning Bruiser: He's larger than Miguel, but is incredibly agile, and is strong enough to tear apart three Private Eye drop ships with little effort.
- Hulk Speak
- Mook Maker: Sends his spawn as minions to battle Miguel.
- Scary Scorpions: Both him and his spawn.
Dr. Octopus/Dr. Serena Patel
I could kill you or I could explain everything and then kill you. Nah, I think I'll just kill you.
Voiced By: Thomas F. Wilson
- Badass Normal: Since my healing factor isn't brought up in this game, I actually do come off as, about as close to normal as somebody like me can get.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: Why I'm so damn lovable.
- Came Back Wrong: Implied to be the reason for my personality change. Good thing, too, 'cause I wasn't about to show up in this game the way I was.
- Composite Character: I'm basically classic me in Ultimate me's costume.
- Doppelgänger Attack: My fragment power, which finally gave me an audience for my sweet jokes!
- Fiction 500: Oh boy did I ever have fun with this. I got myself not one, but two oil rigs that I filled with death traps, giant TV screens, dozens of video cameras, some of which doubled as machine guns and rocket launchers, and some flamethrowers. And let's not forget the bombs I set up to create a series of tidal waves! Would you believe I bought all this with merchandise revenue?
- Fluffy the Terrible: One of my Giant Mooks is named Beauregard. No, I don't know why he's named that.
- I Surrender, Suckers: You won't believe what Canadians are able to replicate.
- Large Ham: Hey! I'm not me if I don't flaunt my awesomeness constantly. Besides, I was on live TV.
- Medium Awareness: Just like the comic books, I knew I was in a video game. I asked Beenox to consider my Deadpool: Shattered Dimensions project, but it was a no-no, apparently.
- Hell, that's how I lured Spidey into the level, displaying his beloved fragment on every TV screen in the US!
- Moment Killer: Kind of a bad habit of mine.
- Motor Mouth: And you love it.
- The Television Talks Back: My intro and level. Remember, I'm always available for black ops missions, assassinations and birthday parties!
- Blood Lust
- Combat Tentacles
- Knight of Cerebus: Carnage has what's probably the most downright terrifying level for Ultimate Spidey, has no humorous quirks like the other two Ultimate Spidey villains (Electro, at least, is an entertaining Large Ham and Deadpool's just plain hilarious), and is generally the only opponent Spider-Man has less funny comments toward.
- Mook Maker: Spawns symbiote offspring in the latter half of his stage, and the infected corpses of all of the soldiers he killed make up the majority of the mooks of the stage.
- The Unintelligible: He mainly "speaks" in roars and growls.
- Wolverine Claws
- Zombie Apocalypse: What the fragment enables him to cause.
Madame Web/Cassandra Webb
Voiced By: Susanne Blakeslee
Silver Sable/Silver Sablinova
Nuff said kids. Nuff said.
- Brick Joke: Amazing Spidey notices him in the wall behind Madame Web that had images of various alternate universes and asks, "Is that a cartoon pig?" He then appears during a point in the credits, but he's too late to help.
