The third installment, '''''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/250801/ Spiders and Magic III: Days of Friendship Past,]]''''' is now out. [[SarcasmMode Try and guess]] [[ComicBook/DaysOfFuturePast what the main inspiration for this story was.]]

The fourth and final installment, '''''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/286658/ Spiders and Magic IV: The Fall of Spider-Mane,]]''''' is currently out, but is incomplete. It takes inspiration from '''''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight.'''''

* CasualDangerDialog: Well, it's Spider-Man. Would you expect anything less?
* CharacterDevelopment: Peter, particularly. While he is still prone to moments of self loathing and doubt, he has come a long way from the BrokenHero that we are all familiar with.
* TheChewToy: Peter. Constantly curses his "Parker Luck" for every insane shenanigan he suffers.
* TheChosenOne: Spider-Man is the focus of a very ominous prophecy and [[spoiler: Discord needs him to die at a specific time for his plan to work.]]

* ComesGreatResponsibility: Inevitable, as the {{Trope Namer|s}} himself is the protagonist.
* ComfortingComforter
* TheComicallySerious: Luna, generally.
** Funnily enough, ComicBook/DoctorStrange is not this. He's actually quite the snark master, and a bit of a flirt.

* CryIntoChest
* CurbStompBattle: Twilight delivers one to [[spoiler: Venom-Luna]] in Chapter 55.
** Everyone is expecting, and looking forward to, Peter delivering one to Blueblood after the later challenges him to a duel. [[spoiler: Unfortunately Blueblood TookALevelInBadass by bonding to the Venom symbiote.]]
** Chapter 59 has Peter delivering one to [[spoiler: Osborn.]]
* CutenessProximity: Peter suffers it. Oh, does Peter suffer it. And he feels the blow to his masculinity each time.
* DarkActionGirl: [[spoiler: Sunset Shimmer.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast
* DarkerAndEdgier: Obviously, when compared with MLP: FIM, especially since it incorporates some elements from the Ultimate Marvel universe (which loves this trope). For the most part, however, it's a pretty light story.
* DeadpanSnarker: It's Spider-Man. He's obviously here.
* DeathGlare: [[spoiler: Blueblood]] is given one by most of the Mane 6 in Chapter 40, after he insults Peter.

* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler: King Sombra,]] as of Chapter 51.
* DefeatMeansRespect: [[spoiler: Sombra,]] after being defeated twice by Peter.
* DefrostingIceQueen: There is a non romantic example, with Peter trying to win [[spoiler: Princess Luna's]] trust, and even teaching her to loosen up a little in the process. The non romantic part [[ShipTease starts to get a little iffy]] after he succeeds, especially in Chapter 35.
** Also, [[spoiler: Trixie.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Spider-Man, obviously. When the ponies start to learn more about his past and his reputation back in UsefulNotes/NewYork, they can't help but admire his willingness to keep fighting for people that distrust him or outright hate him.
** Also, Rainbow Dash, when trying to prove that she's a better hero than Pete, and going as far as to [[spoiler: enter into a dragon's lair as a "Test of Bravery."]]
** And Lyra, and [[spoiler: her obsession with proving that Spider-Mane is a human.]]
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Happens a few times:
** In Chapter 4, when Peter [[spoiler: knocks out a dragon with one kick.]]
** His fight against [[spoiler: King Sombra]] in Chapter 30.
** Also, defeating [[spoiler: the two ruling princesses of Equestria]] causes this reaction on the ponies.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: Peter.]]
* TheDragon: [[spoiler: Sunset Shimmer]] seems to be this to [[spoiler: Norman Osborn.]]
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: [[spoiler: Twilight's premonitions of the upcoming battle with Osborn.]]
* EmbarrassingNickname: Peter likes to call Rainbow after a certain candy...
** While Pinkie likes to call him Peter Pony Parker.
* [[spoiler: EternalLove]]: [[spoiler: Due to Luna's spell which resuscitates Peter, he will now be immortal and have this with Twilight.]]
* EurekaMoment: [[spoiler: When Lyra deduces that Peter Parker and Spider Mane are one in the same.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[spoiler: Discord]] seemed to be quite disturbed after hearing that [[spoiler: the Green Goblin]] wouldn't think twice about blowing up innocent bystanders.
--> [[spoiler: '''Discord:''' I enjoy the fun type of chaos. That's just... Demented.]]

* ExhaustedEyeBags
* {{Facepalm}}: Twilight's occasional reaction towards Peter's comments.
* [[spoiler: FailureToSaveMurder]]: [[spoiler: Averted: Osborn reveals that Gwen was already dead by his own hand before Peter got involved. [[BerserkButton Probably not the wisest move on his part.]]]]
* {{Fainting}}: During Chapter 38, after [[spoiler: watching the memory where Osborn gets impaled by his own glider,]] Fluttershy makes use of this trope.
** Also, a more comical example turns up in Chapter 46, when Peter gets a large amount of money from [[spoiler: [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark.]]]]
* FantasticArousal: Pegasus ponies and the wingboner effect. [[spoiler: Alicorns get it too.]]
* FightingFromTheInside: [[spoiler: Luna, trying to fight off the Symbiote's influence.]]
* FightingYourFriend: Occasionally, Peter will spar with Rainbow Dash. There's also the time he has a duel with [[spoiler: Princess Celestia and Luna.]]
* FireForgedFriends: Peter and Shining Armor become this after their battle against [[spoiler: Sombra.]]
* FirstGirlWins: Twilight is the first pony that Peter meets upon his arrival to Equestria. You can guess how things go from there...
* FishOutOfWater
* AFriendInNeed: Often resulting in SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments.
* FriendToAllChildren
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Blueblood after he [[spoiler: receives the Venom symbiote from Discord.]]
* [[spoiler: GenocideBackfire: Celestia used a spell to prevent the Sirens from feeding, leaving them to starve to death. As Sirens, the Dazzlings are understandably 'not' okay with this, but Adagio takes it further than Sonata or Aria by actively fighting Celestia.]]
** [[spoiler: Peter prevents this from happening with the changelings after returning from the future.]]
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Twilight's condition when she is conjuring up a spell to stop [[spoiler: a brainwashed Hulk.]]
* AGodAmI: [[spoiler: Norman Osborn,]] after his transformation.
* GreenEyedMonster: [[spoiler: Blueblood]] is quite jealous of the attention Peter receives from mares, namely the Mane 6.
* GroinAttack: In Chapter 59, and delivered by Peter, of all people.
* GuiltComplex: Peter, and, as always, taking it to ludicrous levels.
* HannibalLecture: [[spoiler: Sombra]] delivers one to Peter while trying to brainwash him.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: [[spoiler: Cadance]] is one, apparently.
* HarmlessVillain: Peter doesn't see [[spoiler: Discord]] as actually evil, but more as an annoying jerk, especially when comparing [[spoiler: him]] to some members of his RoguesGallery.
* HeartbrokenBadass
* HeelFaceTurn: Quite of few, mainly due to becoming friends or infatuated with Peter. This is up to and including a [[spoiler: [[Rule63 genderbent]] alternate reality version of [[MadGod Discord]]!]]
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler: J. Jonah Jameson has an extended one during the four year period after Spider-Man's "death," taken to the next level when Osborn's broadcasting of the final battle reveals Spider-Man's identity -- a kid who suffered Jameson's abuse his whole career, even accepting a pittance of a salary for defaming his own alter-ego, yet kept fighting the good fight.]]
* HeldGaze
* HeroicBSOD: Twilight is reduced to tears when she read the prophecy that says Peter would die.
** Princess Luna, upon realizing that [[spoiler: she had killed Peter under the influence of the Symbiote.]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: While this is nothing new for Peter, sometimes during the story, he seems to take it [[UpToEleven even further]] than in the comics.
* HeroicWillpower: It should be obvious by now.
* [[HoldingHands Holding Hooves]]
* [[spoiler: HowDareYouDieOnMe: Peter, who finally succumbs to the prophecy of his death in Chapter 54.]]
* HowDoIShotWeb: Peter, while trying to learn unicorn magic. He even quotes it.
* HumanityEnsues: Starting from Chapter 43.
* HumbleHero
* HurtingHero: Since the story takes place just one month after [[spoiler: ComicBook/TheNightGwenStacyDied,]] and this being Spider-Man we are talking about, this was unavoidable.
** In fact, the main purpose of this story is to try and give him some respite from all the crap he has gone through in his career as a superhero.
* ImHavingSoulPains: From the battle in [[spoiler: the Helicarrier,]] to the battle with [[spoiler: Sunset Shimmer,]] the ponies who have developed a close relationship with Peter, start feeling pain whenever he's close to die.
* INeedAFreakingDrink: Shining Armor in Chapter 42.
* IWantGrandkids: Used as a joke by [[spoiler: Twilight's mom, Velvet.]]

* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: [[spoiler: Shining Armor]] to Peter.
* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Twilight tells this to [[spoiler: Peter, when he's about to kill Norman Osborn.]]
* ImplausibleFencingPowers: Apparently, [[spoiler: Celestia]] has a sword of [[spoiler: her]] own, and is ridiculously proficient with it.
** To be fair, [[spoiler: she]] uses magic to wield it and fight with it.
* InconvenientSummons: Spidey is brought to Equestria via one of this.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Peter's career as a hero, [[spoiler: as shown to the ponies via his flashbacks.]]
* InsecureLoveInterest: Peter, especially after [[spoiler: Twilight becomes an alicorn princess.]] Naturally, she frequently has to reassure / snap him out of it.
* InterspeciesRomance: Played with, as Spidey becomes a pony. Understandably, he still freaks out over it, [[spoiler: especially after he hooks up with Twilight.]]
* Irony: Peter starts out hated by much of humanity, [[spoiler: but becomes beloved by Equestria. By the end of the story, his battle with Green Goblin has made him a hero on Earth... But it revealed his true origins to Equestria, much of which now fear and distrust him.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[spoiler: Trixie,]] as shown when she starts to open up to others.
* {{Jerkass}}: [[spoiler: Prince Blueblood.]]
** Also, [[spoiler: Trixie,]] at first.
* [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Jerkass Cannot Comprehend Altruism]]: [[spoiler: J. Jonah Jameson]] until the below mentioned HeelRealization.
* JerkassFacade: [[spoiler: Trixie]] believes that no one will accept her for who she really is, and thus decides to put on a mask.
* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: {{Subverted|Trope}}. They don't actually get inside of his head, but rather, they just [[spoiler: take a look at his memories.]]
* JustInTime
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: For those who felt that [[spoiler: Babs Seed]] got off scot-free, there's Chapter 48.
* KillItWithFire: How [[spoiler: Twilight]] deals with [[spoiler: Venom's Symbiote.]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Doctor Octopus,]] as stated in Chapter 45.
** [[spoiler: As of Chapter 51, you can add King Sombra to that list.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Knighting}}: Peter Pony Parker, personal knight of Princess Twilight Sparkle.]]
* LadyAndKnight: [[spoiler: Twilight and Peter.]]
* LastOfHisKind: The [[spoiler: Sirens, as it turns out. Celestia killed the others over a thousand years ago.]]
* LeotardOfPower: Part of Twilight's costume [[spoiler: after her trip to Earth with Peter and Spike.]]
* LeParkour: Since the buildings in Ponyville tend to be only two stories high, this is Spider-Mane's main form to move around.
* LetsGetDangerous: While Equestria citizens admire Spider-Mane, they won't become aware of his full power until his seemingly hopeless [[spoiler: duel with the Princesses of the moon and the sun.]] [[SarcasmMode Hopeless, indeed.]]
** Peter, again, at the end of Chapter 29.
* LighterAndSofter: Most definitely, when compared with the comics.
** Also, the SugarBowl land of Equestria is a very nice change of setting, according to Peter. This comes as no surprise, considering how his [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse home]] [[CrapsackWorld world]] tends to be.
* LightheartedRematch: In Chapter 41, between Peter and [[spoiler: Spitfire.]]
* LoveConfession
* MagicIsMental
* MagicalLand: [[DeadpanSnarker Take a wild guess.]]
* MakeOutPoint: Chapter 34.
* ManaDrain: [[spoiler: Who else but Tirek?]]
* MentalPictureProjector: Used by the ponies [[spoiler: to look into Spidey's memories.]]
* [[CluelessChickMagnet Mindless Mare Magnet]]: Just like in the comics, Peter gets (almost) ALL the mares.
** To elaborate, he has his main relationship with Twilight, but every single one of the Mane 6 (except Pinkie Pie) are attracted to him, and Sweetie Belle and [[spoiler: Scootaloo]] even have precocious crushes on him. And that's just from the main cast. Princess Luna finds a lot of common ground with him, Trixie treasures his friendship as her first friend, Derpy fangirls over him and even [[spoiler: Spitfire]] likes him. The author has downplayed this with recent edits, however.
* ModestRoyalty: Princess Twilight and [[spoiler: Prince Peter.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Princess Luna. See HeroicBSOD, above.
* NoKillLikeOverkill: Chapter 54 gives us [[spoiler: Venom-Luna delivering one to Wolverine. [[HealingFactor This being Logan we're talking about,]] it doesn't stick.]]
* NoSell: [[spoiler: Deadpool's rat's nest of a brain prevents him from being mind controlled by Osborn, although he's still susceptible to more monetary forms of manipulation.]]
* NotAMorningPerson: Peter, much to Twilight's annoyance.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler: King Sombra.]]
* NotSoStoic: [[spoiler: Trixie,]] and much to her embarrassment, most of the time.
** [[spoiler: Luna]] is feeling the effects of this, as well.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: In Chapter 12 when Rarity and Applejack find Peter [[spoiler: pinned to the ground in the royal garden, and hugged tightly by Fluttershy.]] Turns out that [[spoiler: she]] was only frightened by [[spoiler: Princess Luna's]] appearance.
* AnOddPlaceToSleep: Twilight mentions that she once found Peter sleeping on the ceiling of her house...
** ...And that Pinkie Pie had managed to duct tape herself to the ceiling, next to him.
* OfficialCouple: Spider-Mane and Twilight.
* OneHeadTaller: [[spoiler: Peter and Twilight while on human form.]]
* OneHitKill: During his [[spoiler: royal duel with Luna,]] Peter, accidentally delivers one to [[spoiler: her]] forehead [[spoiler: (it only knocks her out, though).]]
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: [[spoiler: Norman Osborn.]]
* OpenSaysMe: Done twice by Peter, and both times they were done in order to reach [[spoiler: King Sombra.]]
** Extra points for the doors being made of stone.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Blueblood feels that he is this in comparison to Peter and, frankly, he's right.
** Actually, just about everyone outside of Luna, Twilight and Trixie is this to Peter.
* PairTheSmartOnes: Peter and Twilight. The nerd and the dork, the chemist and the bookworm, etc.
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler: Discord comforts Adagio after the two discover that Aria committed suicide.]]
* PowerAtAPrice: Blueblood receives the [[spoiler: Venom symbiote from Discord in exchange for his horn and, therefore, his ability to do magic. Considering how weak Blueblood was before, it was more than a fair trade.]]
* PrecociousCrush: [[spoiler: Sweetie Bell]] develops one towards Peter.
** She still has it in the [[spoiler: alternate future, culminating in her and Peter [[YourCheatingHeart having sex]].]]
* [[spoiler: ProphecyTwist: The prophecy states that Peter will die at the hands of a closely trusted ally. The prophecy says nothing about that ally being consciously in control of her own actions, nor does it state that the ally can't use magic to bring him back to life.]]
* PsychosomaticSuperpowerOutage: Peter starts losing his powers after getting to Equestria, due [[spoiler: to him not having a Cutie Mark.]]
* PunchedAcrossTheRoom: Since Peter is much physically stronger than most in the story, this happens frequently.
* RageAgainstTheMentor: Sunset Shimmer's memories of her trial in Chapter 53, and how she lashed out at Celestia. She appears to be remorseful, however.
* RagsToRoyalty: [[spoiler: When Peter is made into a knight, he also receives the title of prince.]]
* RantInducingSlight: Though often the one doing the ranting, Blueblood, after a rude remark about Peter (the most recent of many), is absolutely ripped into as everyone, even his family, drops what they are doing to give it to him. And they do this right in the middle of the Grand Galloping Gala.
* RapidFireFisticuffs: Used by Spidey to break [[spoiler: Celestia's glaive]] during their fight.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler: Sombra.]]
* RejectedApology: Celestia tries to do right and extend an olive branch to [[spoiler: the Dazzlings, but considering the reason that she is apologizing is for committing genocide against their race, they do not accept it.]]
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler: Twilight in chapter 55.]]
** [[spoiler: Adagio has been waging a subdued, but no less rage driven one against Celestia for the genocide against her kind.]]
* SadisticChoice: [[spoiler: Peter gets one in Chapter 51: Either break his ThouShaltNotKill pledge to end Sombra's life ([[DeathSeeker which is what]] [[ICannotSelfTerminate he wants]]), or seal him away again, and risk him coming back to harm his loved ones. Peter ultimately decides on the former.]]
* SecondLove: Twilight, especially since WordOfGod states that she serves as the Mary-Jane of this story (except that Twilight is more capable of defending herself). Funnily enough, Applejack, who has had the least ShipTease with Spidey (aside from Pinkie Pie), reminds him of Gwen.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: The reason behind [[spoiler: Spidey's duels with Celestia and Luna.]]
* SecurityCling: Happens quite a lot.
* ShipperOnDeck: Applejack and Cadence for Peter / Twilight.
* ShootTheTelevision: Twilight in Chapter 49.
* ShoutOut: Peter does this quite a few times, much to the confusion (and in Twilight's case, annoyance) of Equestria's denizens, since they can't get any of the references. True to his usual style, he continues LONG after Twilight voices her displeasure... Or because of it.
** Chapter 42, when Peter [[spoiler: tries to think of a superhero name for Twilight, he suggests... Equestria Girl.]]
** Chapter 43 ends with [[spoiler: the intro Marvel Ultimate Alliance]] without Spider-Man.
** [[spoiler: Peter's second and final battle with Sombra (spanning Chapters 50 and 51) is almost beat-for-beat the same battle WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack has with the cursed Viking warrior.]]
* ShutUpHannibal: Peter gives one to [[spoiler: King Sombra]] in Chapter 50.
* SicEm: Chapter 30.
* SickeninglySweethearts: Spike accuses Peter and Twilight of being this, whenever they make out in front of him.
* SleepCute: Peter, is guilty of it, according to Twilight.
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: Poor, poor [[spoiler: Fluttershy.]]
** As of Chapter 34, [[spoiler: Twilight joins in, even lampshading that she understands how Fluttershy feels.]]
* SpitTake: Peter makes use of this trope in Chapter 35, due to a comment from Twilight's mother.
* SummonEverymanHero: Twilight summons Peter to Equestria in order to save Ponyville from a rampaging dragon.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: Nightmare Moon, first to Luna and then to [[spoiler: Peter.]]
* SurprisePregnancy: [[spoiler: Twilight Sparkle.]]
* TalentedPrincessRegularGuy: This is how Peter feels about his relationship with Twilight during Chapter 31.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: The [[spoiler: second Sinister Six, who are united only in their hatred of Spider-Man and their fear of Discord and Tirek. [[AHouseDivided And even that's barely holding them together]] as the team consists of Venom and [[AntagonisticOffspring Carnage]], Sonata defected, Aria kills herself and, recently. Adagio and Starlight have gone AWOL.]]
* ThrowingDownTheGauntlet: Blublood invokes an ancient law, challenging Peter to a duel at the end of the Equestria Games where the loser is stripped of their titles. [[spoiler: [[OhCrap This also when Blueblood reveals that he is the new Venom]].]]
* TooMuchInformation: Twilight's reaction in Chapter 48, after Peter tells her what hot dogs are made of.
* TookALevelInBadass: In Chapter 43, Spike [[spoiler: gets turned into an older, taller, and stronger version of himself, but while still retaining his child persona.]]
* TranquilFury: Read Roaring Rampage of Revenge, above.
* [[spoiler: TrappedInAnotherWorld: It seems that Spider-Man's summoning was a one-way trip only.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: [[spoiler: Trixie]] is quite fond of this.
** Also, [[spoiler: Princess Luna]] and [[spoiler: Rainbow Dash]] to a lesser extent.
* UnknownRival: Blueblood to Peter, [[spoiler: who can't even bother to remember him, despite meeting multiple times and [[UpToEleven being relatives for nearly a decade]].]]
* UnstoppableRage: [[spoiler: Peter in Chapter 59, after the Goblin shows him the memory of when Gwen was killed.]]
* WeakButSkilled: The cast's assessment of Spidey when he's going against Spitfire. Spitfire is naturally faster, but Peter has his Spider Sense and the acrobatic agility to go full speed at all times while she has to slow down. At all OTHER times though, this does not take.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler: Discord paints himself as being this, trying to instill chaos against Celestia and Luna's crusade of order.]]
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: At first, Twilight seems to be unable to understand her feelings for Peter, due to her [[NoSocialSkills social awkwardness.]]
** [[spoiler: Princess Luna]] seems to be a good example of this, too.
* WhatTheHellHero: Twilight lecturing Peter, while she's tending his injuries from his last battle with [[spoiler: Sombra.]]
* [[spoiler: WonTheWarLostThePeace]]: [[spoiler: Yeah, Peter finally brought down the Green Goblin... But now he's arrived in Equestria, and will unite with other villains to takeover Equestria. And his true nature as a human being has tarnished his good name in Equestria.]]
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Black Cat gives [[spoiler: Venom-Luna]] a spinning DDT in Chapter 54.
* [[spoiler: YearInsideHourOutside: Peter learns, in Chapter 43, that after spending three months in Equestria, four years have gone by on Earth.]]
** [[spoiler: Exploited by Eris later on, so that Peter, Twilight and the others can get in three months of training while only a week passes in Equestria, though they travel to an Earth much like our own rather than Peter's since Discord would look there for them.]]
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: The ponies often remind Peter of this, when he's in one of his HeroicSelfDeprecation moments.
** Peter himself has also been using this in recent times, prompting a number of [[HeelFaceTurn Heel-Face Turns]].
* YoureCuteWhenYoureAngry: Peter's comment to Twilight in Chapter 48.
* [[spoiler: YouCantFightFate]]: During a conversation between Celestia and Madame Web, the former states that Peter's arrival in Equestria [[spoiler: has only altered his prophecy, but it hasn't stopped it.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler: Osborn's]] declaration to the Sinister Six after he starts absorbing [[spoiler: Discord's]] powers.
** And again in Chapter 48, when [[spoiler: Osborn]] brainwashes [[spoiler: Sunset Shimmer]] to make her fight until she dies, and declares that he has no more use for her.
