!!Be wary of spoilers!



* AdaptationDyeJob: Peter is usually portrayed with having either brown, blue, or hazel eyes in the comics and other versions. Here, his eyes are green.
* AdaptationalBadass:
** Peter's physical strength has gotten an upgrade from most incarnations where he's 15 years old. He's strong, but you wouldn't think he could catch a falling helicopter or a careening van as a teen, something he could do in his adult years. This version doesn't make that feat look hard at all. Then there's also the fact that he's strong and fast enough to create a miniature cyclone simply by swinging a heavy object around him in a circle.
** Same goes for the enhancement provided by the Venom Symbiote. Previous versions ''did'' enhance his strength, but not to the point his punch would generate a ''shockwave'' and cause an ElementalShapeshifter to back down.
* AdorablyPrecociousChild: His interest in the sciences goes way back, to the point that he'd rather play with a chemistry set than go outside and hang out with other kids his age when he was younger.
* AlliterativeName: '''P'''eter '''P'''arker.
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: In case ''Spider''-Man didn't tip it off for you.
* TheApprentice: Peter becomes one to Max Modell so that he can pay off his tuition [[spoiler:until Otto's will helps him]].
* AscendedFanboy: A fan of Superheroes who became one himself.
* BadassAdorable: A cute fifteen-year-old science geek who fights supervillains.
* BadassBookworm: He not only solved an incredibly complex equation that served as an admittance test to an exclusive science school, he repurposed it to help fight a fire that the VillainOfTheWeek had caused.
* BerserkButton: "Spider-Man on Ice" reveals that Peter despises the idea that inventions could be weaponized, calling Harry out for turning their thermal gauntlet into a sword.
* BetaOutfit: [[https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/horizonhigh/images/9/91/HHPO_001381.png/revision/latest?cb=20190925095703 His original costume is a hoodie with goggles and a sweatpants]] similar to the original outfit in the ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse''.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's jovial, wise-cracking, and friendly most of the time. You ''really'' don't want him angry though.
* BigNo: Let's one out when Flint Marko AKA Sandman is seemingly killed by his daughter.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:He is made into an UnwittingPawn of Doctor Octopus via mind control in "The Hobgoblin, Part 1". Thankfully, Harry is able to snap him out of it.]]
* BrainyBrunette: Brown-haired and a TeenGenius.
* ClothingDamage: His original costume gets continually ripped up as he's forced to repair it. He finally ditches it in favor of his high-tech version he made in his lab while facing the first Spider-Slayer.
* ComesGreatResponsibility: Well, it is ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' after all. Uncle Ben framed it as a pseudo-math equation in this continuity.
* CompositeCharacter: He is a teenage version of the Dan Slott era Peter Parker, is a fan of the older heroes just like the MCU and Ultimate cartoon versions and [[spoiler:he's the Sinister Six's unwilling sixth member like in the Ultimate Comics]].
* CoolLoser: As usual. Despite being chipper, friendly, funny, and knowledgeable, he's still so much of a nerd that Liz Allan rolls her eyes and sighs at the thought of being his tour chaperone.
* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: As Peter wears the V-252, he becomes much more uncooperative and aggressive as the suit takes greater control over him. Even after he takes off the suit and very briefly has to put it on again to save the day in "Stark Expo", he briefly considers just keeping it on forever before Iron Man and Max talk him out of it.
* GeekPhysique: Unlike most versions of the character, Peter didn't gain much of an increase in muscle mass or tone from his mutation. He still weighs a paltry 97 pounds even though he stands at [=5'10''=].
* HeroWithBadPublicity: He enters this territory in season 2 when J. Jonah Jameson shows up, complaining about the collateral damage in his wake.
* IHaveManyNames: Peter Parker, Spider-Man, Spidey, [[spoiler:Stealth Spider]], [[spoiler:Robo-Spider]].
* IndyPloy: Sometimes, most notably when he dives out a window to save Max while not actually being sure whether or not his new parachute web function actually worked or not.
* IShallTauntYou: Come on, it wouldn't be Spider-Man without this.
* ItBeganWithATwistOfFate: His mutation arose after being bitten by an escaped radioactive spider while attending Oscorp's demonstration. Anyone could have gotten spider powers if Harry hadn't volunteered him for the job.
* KidHero: Barely meets the criteria as a 15-year old.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Often accompanied by a loud, heroic orchestral piece as he engages his enemies.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: He's not filled in about [[spoiler:what Otto did while their minds were swapped (i.e. quitting Horizon High, tarnishing his reputation with un-Peter-like behavior, getting Jameson's approval as Spider-Man, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and encouraging Aunt May to eat healthier]])]], leaving him baffled until Miles explains what happened.
* TheMentor: Becomes this, as both Peter and Spider-Man, to Miles after he gets his powers. Peter does note that he has all of three months' experience, and isn't exactly a veteran. Miles counters that he needs a mentor with his powers, which narrows his options down to... Peter.
--> '''Peter:''' I'm...flattered?
* MotorMouth: As both Peter and Spider-Man, he ''never'' shuts up.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: His proportionate Spider-Strength allows him to lift and punch well above what his wiry frame would suggest. According to Iron Man, Pete only weighs 97 pounds, which would be considered very underweight for a boy his age. It doesn't stop him from catching cars and helicopters.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Outside of the "My God" part, Peter literally says this upon realizing that Ben's killer was the guy he let get away earlier.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Peter is not only gifted in every kind of physical science, but is also a skilled enough computer programmer to design his upgraded costume and program all sorts of functions, sensors, and scanners into it.
* RelativeButton: Don't disrespect Uncle Ben, as [[WesternAnimation/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy2015 Rocket Raccoon]] found out the hard way.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: He doesn't get brain freeze. He gets sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia. Though this aspect is greatly toned down midway through season 1 and rarely shows up for the rest of the show.
* ShipTease: He [[LuminescentBlush lights up like a fire hydrant]] when he finally sees Mary Jane in-person during ''Maximum Venom''.
* SuperSoldier: Unlike most versions of Spider-Man, [[spoiler:Raymond Warren intentionally created the genetically modified spider that bit Peter to create an army of spider-powered super soldiers. Peter just happened to be in the right place at the right time after one of them escaped]].
* TechnoBabble: With the show's emphasis on science, this version engages in this more than other incarnations.
* TeenGenius: Peter is exceptionally gifted in math and science, as best seen when he quickly neutralized a haywire experiment involving vibranium by pouring the corresponding materials into the machine in the correct order. However, while the show goes out of its way to emphasize this, it's also downplayed by the fact that he goes to a school for geniuses, meaning that he comes across as a NormalFishInATinyPond at times.
* YoungerAndHipper: While Peter canonically started his superhero career as a teenager, this version borrows from ComicBook/DanSlottSpiderMan, including Horizon Labs being reimagined as a special high school he gets accepted into opposed to a lab he works at as an adult and the updated costume being a modified version of the Spider-Armor Mk IV from ''ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' rather than a normal cloth costume.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/NadjiJeter
----
* AdaptationalBadass: His venom blast from the comics goes from FingerpokeOfDoom to electrical energy blast that can total two giant robots to instant submission.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Since the context in which he began as Spider-Man from ''ComicBook/UltimateMarvel'' is no longer there (i.e. [[spoiler:he became Spider-Man after Ultimate Peter temporarily died]], and indeed becomes Spider-Man while Peter is still a teenager, Miles's show personality has changed, going from being nervous and reluctant about being a LegacyCharacter to being a superhero who is a ThrillSeeker and goofball who eventually mellows under Spider-Man's mentorship.
** Even beyond the aforementioned context of how he became Spider-Man, Miles is canonically an introvert, albeit a more realistic version who's functional, as opposed to the more typical [[LonersAreFreaks Hollywood]] [[IneffectualLoner versions]]. It is an occasional point of contention that this is changed DependingOnTheWriter, with the implication that healthy extroverts are easier/more familiar to write than healthy introverts. This show completely upends this part of Miles' character, making him a full-on extroverted person, once again, regardless of the context of how he becomes Spider-Man.
* AdaptationalIntelligence: While Miles is bright and canonically a student at a STEM school, in the comics he got there through a lottery. Here, he's shown to have built a security robot.
* AgeLift: Miles Morales is 15 at the time Spider-Man makes his debut rather than 12/13. Additionally, he's 15 around the same time Peter is instead of being younger than Peter.
* AlliterativeName: '''M'''iles '''M'''orales.
* BadassBookworm: A given since Horizon is a genius school. Miles designed a working robot.
* CannotKeepASecret: Blurts his secret identity to Peter, Anya, and Gwen within minutes of finishing his costume, and the only reason he didn't tell ''more'' people is because Peter convinced him to keep it a secret.
** He gets better after absentmindedly revealing where he lives on the Evening News and endangering his neighborhood and his father.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Once he obtains his spider powers, the lessons Peter tries to instill into him about secrets, power, and responsibility go over his head [[spoiler:until the Smythes send their respective Spider Slayers to capture him]].
* DarkIsNotEvil: His costume is black and red and he can use red lightning, but he is still one of the heroes.
* HowDoIShootWeb: Literally until he learned that they were tech based.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Literally when he saves Spider-Man.
* {{Keet}}: Once he gains his super-powers, he gets really excitable and eager to use them.
* KidAppealCharacter: He's usually the first one to crack a joke in most situations, is more excitable than Peter in more mundane ways, might even be slightly younger than him, along with being relatively new to superheroics.
* OutOfFocus: Tends to come off as this, likely due to the above-mentioned Trope. It gets even more frustrating when he does nothing to help Peter during the "Bring on the Bad Guys" arc.
* SecretPublicIdentity: He's never adopted his own superhero alias and Peter calls him "Miles" even when they're in the middle of fighting villains.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:In "Kraven's Big Hunt", he finds out Peter's secret identity as Spider-Man and promises not to tell anyone at school.]]
* StoryBreakerPower: Due to the fact that most of the villains Spider-Man faces in this series wear PoweredArmor or use heavily electronic weaponry, this trope is likely why Miles sporadically does any heroing in the series; his powers, which can short out electrical devices, would make capturing a number of these tech-based villains too easy.

----
* AgeLift: Played with as while she's a teenager like her comics counterpart, comics Anya was introduced after Peter had finished college and was thus older than her. Here, they're the same age.
* AmbiguouslyBi: While rather heat of the moment, she clearly says to Miles during the Spider Island arc that she could kiss him for the good job he did. At the same time, she's shown to have a ''very'' special connection to Gwen in said arc.
* BadassBookworm: A given since Horizon is a genius school. She designed a scrambler that cuts the power to any electronic equipment.
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:Subverted. Anya is the only person to have kept her spider powers after Spider Island.]]
* CuteBruiser: She won't hesitate to get into a physical fight if there's danger around.
* DarkIsNotEvil: [[spoiler:Her Spider-Girl has the same motif and colors as the Black Suit/Venom and is one of the heroes.]]
* {{Foil}}: She serves as one to Gwen Stacy. Compared to Gwen, who becomes more open hearted, and is more of herself out the costume than in it (on top of being more emotionally vulnerable), she tends to be more cynical, has some skewed priorities, yet is also shown to be more level headed when it comes to heroics, with her ego downplayed.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She may be stern and ambition driven, but she won't hesitate to leap into action to help others.
* HowDoIShotWeb: Literally; out of all the protagonists, she is by far the one who has the most trouble getting used to her spider-power when she gets them, and is freaked out by it.
* NeverTrustATrailer: Promotional materials featured her in a version of her Spider-Girl costume with inverted colors on the torso (a black spider on a white torso). Not only does she wear a more-accurately colored costume (white spider on a black torso), but she didn't even don the Spider-Girl identity until season 2.
* NotSoAboveItAll: In "Dead Man's Party", she joins Miles in doing the robot.
* SecretKeeper: She and Gwen know Miles's secret identity, but not Peter's.
* SkewedPriorities: She chews out Peter for messing with her device, seemingly not knowing that Midtown High would've been destroyed by her invention had he not stopped it.
* SociallyAwkwardHero: To a degree. She was shown to be very against the school dance that Peter accidentally came up with in "Party Animals" and was absent for the party in "Halloween Moon" (Miles at least has the excuse of possible training). She seems to have grown out of it in season 2, judging by her willingly attending a Ross Caliban concert and going to Peter's party.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Gwen's Girly Girl.
* WhatTheHellHero: She calls Harry out for [[UngratefulBastard not being appreciative of Spider-Man saving his life]] from a [[KillerRobot Spider Slayer]].

----
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Whereas most Spiders tend to be [[HeroWithBadPublicity Heroes With Bad Publicity]], Gwen, operating without a mask or secret identity, has quickly become the darling of Manhattan as Spider-Gwen.
* AcademicAlphaBitch: Known as "the Princess of Preparation" at school, she is very smart and she likes to flaunt it with little false modesty. This does reflect parts of Gwen's early appearances but differs in both kind and degree[[note]]EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Gwen was snobbish because she was a beauty queen and a kind of UptownGirl[[/note]]. Becomes a much more [[LovableAlphaBitch lovable type]] after she bonds with Peter following her uncle's arrest.
* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: Even after becoming a more humble person than she was at the start, Gwen can't help but relapse into being somewhat cocky when she first becomes Spider-Gwen, a hero with no secret identity, and [[HundredPercentAdorationRating everyone promptly adores her for it]].
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Like most adaptations of Gwen Stacy, her personality has no resemblance to her original comics appearance (beyond the reworked variant on her initial snobbishness as stated above) -- she's especially different from the comics' Spider-Gwen who's an underdog musician -- and she's more or less an original character who just so happens to be named Gwen Stacy.
* BrokenPedestal: Her uncle, [[spoiler:Raymond Warren]], was her mentor who inspired her to get into science and she is disappointed when he is revealed to be a super-villain.
* CharacterDevelopment: At the start, Gwen thinks Spider-Man is a bungler who causes more problems than he solves. Her opinion of him improves over the course of the first season, and by the time of "Spider Island", she is passionately defending him from an angry Harry, saying that Spider-Man isn't a bad guy and only ever tries to do the right thing. She also grows a closer bond with Peter Parker, due to how much he's influenced and supported her.
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: She isn't a big fan of Spidey at the start, and points out what he could have done better any time he saves the day.
* CompositeCharacter: She has the look and fashion of her mainstream depiction, the scientific intelligence of the ''Amazing Spider-Man'' films (here taken to genius levels), and the powers of Spider-Gwen. When she's repowered she gains the power to glide, much like Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman.
* ADayInTheLimelight: She has a major role in the season 2 episode "The Day Without Spider-Man".
* {{Foil}}: To Anya Corazon. While Anya has some skewed priorities and is more comfortable with heroics, Gwen is the opposite. She's very altruistic when out of costume, but when it comes to major tragedies and being in costume, she shows more emotional vulnerability.
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Or rather Masks Are Hardly Heroic. While Gwen wears her Spider-Gwen costume in the first season like in the comics, she is lacking the mask. Averted in the second season.
* HourglassPlot: Her first appearance has her criticizing Spider-Man ever chance she got. After she gets spider powers of her own, Spider-Man is the one who points out all her faults. The only difference is that [[MoralMyopia she cheekily waves off his comments]].
* LittleMissSnarker: Frequently snarks at people, whether she likes them or not. She even does it to ''the Hulk''.
* LovesMyAlterEgo: In a reverse on the usual trope, it's Peter that Gwen is nice to and appreciates. Conversely, she doesn't seem to care too much for Spider-Man at first.
* NiceGirl: She eventually becomes this after "Party Animals". Snarky and no nonsense that she is, she's also the most willing to help others.
* SecretKeeper: She and Anya know Miles's secret identity, but not Peter's.
** [[spoiler:She's also the only one who knows about Anya keeping her powers from Spider-Island.]]
* SparedByTheAdaptation: This version of Gwen Stacy is not imported from an alternate universe. Rather, she is alive in this continuity and becomes Spider-Gwen. And given the shows target demographic, an adaptation of ComicBook/TheNightGwenStacyDied is unlikely.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Girly Girl to Anya's Tomboy.
* TookALevelInBadass: From Gwen to Spider-Gwen.
* TookALevelInKindness: Her AcademicAlphaBitch side only really shows up in her first episode; the following ones, particularly following "Party Animals", downplay it considerably, depicting her as still somewhat academic, pretty nice to Peter and not particularly hostile to Spider-Man after he helps save her from her uncle. That said, she still [[LittleMissSnarker maintains a snarky side]].
* WhatTheHellHero: And boy does she bring down Harry ''hard'' during the "Spider-Island" arc. She tells Harry to knock it off with his treatment of Spider-Man, telling him Spider-Man has been trying his hardest to make things right, did his best to save his father, ''and'' tells him that his sentiment towards ''any'' spider-person is completely baseless and misguided.
* YouDontLookLikeYou: Outside of being a Caucasian female with blonde hair and blue eyes, she does not visually resemble her comic book counterpart and other versions that much, mainly through having a different hairstyle and lacking her iconic headband. Her Spider-Gwen costume in Season 1 lacks the mask. She does get a wardrobe upgrade in Season 2, wearing a blue shirt instead of a pink one, and wearing her hair in a ponytail instead of a bun and finally wears a mask for her super alter ego.

!! [[ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan The Superior Spider-Man (Otto Octavius)]]
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maxresdefault_1_2806.jpg]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/RobbieDaymond, Creator/ScottMenville
----
* AdaptationDyeJob: His costume is primarily navy blue in place of the blacks of his comic costume. Averted later on as his costume gradually darkens to his comic costume's shade of black coinciding with him slipping into KnightTemplar territory.
* AgeLift: While Peter was an adult when Otto took over Spider-Man's body in the comics, here Peter is a teenager. Otto himself is also significantly younger than his comic counterpart.
* AntiHero: Through Peter's memories, Otto finally understands the value of altruism. Despite now desiring to become a hero and understanding WithGreatPowerComesGreatResponsibility, he still hasn't lost his old ruthlessness or his ego for that matter. It's demonstrated rather brutally in "Critical Update" when he outright tries to kill Sand Girl for daring to oppose him only to be stopped by Miles. He was also willing to let an innocent man dangle on the edge of a scaffolding in order to keep Miles off his back.
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: In "Cloak and Dagger", he admits that the eponymous duo suffered Tiberius Stone's horrific experiments, and that Stone will be made to pay for these crimes, but adds that they are also guilty of criminal activities, and he will bring the two down too.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: Well, more like Black Eyes of Anti-Heroism. His costume's eyes are black, in contrast to Peter, Miles, Anya and Gwen's white.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: As a consequence of retaining Peter's memories including the death of Uncle Ben, he finds himself incapable of resisting the urge to help those in need even when it inconveniences him. Of course, he proves to be a lot more flexible with this newfound urge, considering he willingly passed by a man dangling on a scaffolding just because he knew Miles would be following behind him and intervene on his behalf.
* CompositeCharacter: In-universe, he is Otto Octavius's mind in Spider-Man's body. His spider-symbol also closely resembles the Iron Spider suit in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse.
* DidNotSeeThatComing: He admits to himself that he miscalculated how much Peter's residual memories would end up affecting him.
* FreakyFridayFlip: Otto in Peter Spider-Man's body. However, he still does retain at least some of Peter's memories, which are what drive him to be a hero in the first place.
* GoodFeelsGood: His reaction when people thank him for saving their lives. It seems that this is a genuinely foreign feeling for him.
* HazyFeelTurn: Otto initially took over Peter's body with the intent of using Spider-Man's powers for conquest. Peter's memories end up teaching him the value of heroism, forcing him out of his previous villainous mindset. However, this leads him to sliding into KnightTemplar territory instead. [[spoiler:He cements his turn to good in "Superior" by agreeing to swap back with Peter so Peter can face Venom.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:He swaps back with Peter so that Peter can successfully deal with Venom, even though this means going back into a dying mechanical body.]]
* InsufferableGenius: He retains his incredibly high opinion on his intelligence and is more than willing to lord over others with it.
* KnightTemplar: He does seem to earnestly want to do good. Unfortunately, "Critical Update" shows that he's more than willing to impose his views on how the world should work onto those he deems his opposition.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: The promotional material for season 2's second half doesn't even bother to hide his origin.
* LighterAndSofter: Barring an interrupted attempt to shatter Keemia Marko after turning into glass, [=SpOck=] doesn't murder anyone in this adaptation.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:His aggressive takedown of every major supervillain in New York creates a power vacuum that allows the much more dangerous and unified Goblin Nation to emerge.]]
* NotHimself: Otto doesn't even ''try'' to act like Peter. Other characters quickly notice this, though they're in the dark as to the sudden shift in Peter's personality.
* NotHisSled: [[spoiler:Unlike the comics version who completely erased himself to allow Peter's restoration and thus losing out on his CharacterDevelopment, Peter ends up saving Otto and returns him to his body, hopefully with his CharacterDevelopment intact.]]
* TerrorHero: Upon taking up the Superior Spider-Man mantle, Otto conducts himself more like a slasher villain, sticking to the shadows and brutally picking off mooks one by one.
* UngratefulBastard:
** Shows no gratitude whatsoever when Miles saves him from Sandgirl's trap in "Critical Update".
** He does the same after [[spoiler:Peter saves him from Stone]].
* VoicesAreMental: Averted. Though Scott Menville voices his internal monologues, his speaking voice is Robbie Draymond albeit with Otto's distinct cadence and accent.
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: In his whole life, no one has liked Otto, much less loved him. The warmth and grief in Peter's memories of Uncle Ben are so foreign that they successfully overwhelm him in just a few hours.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/MaxMittelman
Peter's best friend and Norman's son.
----
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: As in the Ultimate, ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' and film versions, Harry Osborn is more good looking here as opposed to his counterparts' nebbish look in the original comics, ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan''. [[spoiler:When we see him in civies in ''Maximum Venom'', he's borderline {{Hunk}} territory, especially with his more casual, sporty clothing choices.]]
* AdaptationDyeJob: While most depictions are traditionally depicted as brown or red-haired, this version's hair is black.
* AdaptationalHeroism: [[spoiler:As the Hobgoblin. While his Ultimate counterpart was a TragicVillain, this version is willing to be a hero, and is still one by ''Maximum Venom''.]]
* AdaptationalIntelligence: Not that his comic counterpart was dumb to begin with but Harry's just as enthusiastic about science as Peter Parker is and was admitted into Horizon High, a high school "for geniuses" while Peter didn't at the time. [[spoiler:He also created most of the Goblin technology he uses as the Hobgoblin himself.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:In "Generations", he shows up just in the nick of time to save Spider-Man from the Dark Goblin once he has the former cornered.]]
* BrokenPedestal: [[spoiler:He is very heartbroken to learn that Norman has been conspiring against Spider-Man all along, realizing that Peter's claims of Norman getting Harry suspended from Horizon High on purpose were true.]]
* TheBusCameBack: After being PutOnABus, Harry finally returns in the "Goblin War" arc.
** Harry's PutOnABus again after that and he once again returns in time for the climax of ''Maximum Venom''.
* CharacterDevelopment:
** He's the most vocal in his distrust of Spider-Man in Season 1 despite reluctantly working with Spider-Man. It gets worse when the Jackal attacks Oscorp, making him think the two are working together. It takes the "Spider-Island" arc where [[spoiler:Spider-Gwen calls him out for his bias and Peter revealing being Spider-Man]] that he gets over his feelings of betrayal, puts much more faith in Spider-Man, and stops trying to justify why Spider-Man could be evil.
** In Season 1, he tries to get some form of appreciation from Norman Osborn, unaware that his father is manipulating him, [[spoiler:but loses respect for Norman after Season 1's finale. By Season 3, he confronts his father trying once again to turn him against Peter to which Harry says that he has ''no'' interest in trying to get his father's approval anymore, even saying that Norman [[YoureNotMyFather was no father to him]].]]
* CoolSword: Creates one that forms a blade out of ''fire'', getting even cooler as the show progresses and Harry gains more skill in wielding the weapon.
* CompositeCharacter: He is an amalgamation of his comic counterpart and [[spoiler:Phil Urich]]. Like his various counterparts (original, Ultimate, and first two film series), Harry is Peter's and Gwen's friend and Norman's son. [[spoiler:Phil's post-FaceHeelTurn is also fused into his character as his look evokes a more spiky black hair and he knows Anya.]]
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Outside of the Spider heroes, he gets the most screen-time, plot importance, and characterization in Season 1 out of Peter's circle of friends.
** This makes his OutOfFocus [[PutOnABus periods]] in Season 2 and ''Maximum Venom'' all the more jarring, both because he was pretty much the secondary main character throughout Season 1 (one of the biggest things Peter had that Harry didn't was being TheNarrator) and especially since it happens [[spoiler:after the point where he's reconciled with Peter and where one might assume that would lead to the two working in active consort with one another. When Harry and Peter do just that, making a superb combat team, during the climax of ''Maximum Venom'', it just highlights what could have been if Harry maintained his Season 1 focus throughout the rest of the series.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: At least part of his IrrationalHatred for Spider-Man is his desire to have a chance to be in the spotlight as a hero the way Spider-Man is.
* HatesMySecretIdentity: Of all the civilian characters, he easily dislikes Spider-Man the most ([[spoiler:though not as much as his dad and Jameson]]) despite being best friends with Peter Parker.
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: As [[spoiler:Hobgoblin, particularly post-HeelFaceTurn. Harry is frequently seen with his Hobgoblin face mask off, and sometimes with his whole hood down too. This stands out more when you consider Spider-Man is as covetous of his own secret identity as ever. Yet Harry often can't keep his mask on or his hood up for nothing, in spite of Harry potentially being more vulnerable if his secret identity were to be spread too wide than Peter would]].
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: When Horizon High's demonstration at Midtown is sabotaged resulting in his suspension, he thinks Spider-Man (who saved everyone) is responsible while believing the Smythes (the real culprits) wouldn't sink so low. His opinion on Spider-Man is so low that he ''immediately'' assumes that Spider-Man is TheDragon to the Jackal after the latter's sarcastic compliment to the former, and this assumption refuses to disappear [[spoiler:especially after learning about the Jackal's plans for an army with Spider abilities]] even though Spider-Man has been clearly shown fighting the Jackal. Seems to be getting somewhat better in "Spider Island, Part 1" after [[spoiler:he loudly states he thinks Spider-Gwen might be part of the Jackal's Spider army to which Spider-Gwen tells him that he's being irrational, and he makes a clearer (if still begrudging) attempt to just trust Spider-Man and even tries to repair his friendship with Peter]].
* {{Hypocrite}}:
** During the "Rise of Doc Ock" storyline, he finds out about Peter's "alliance" with Spider-Man and breaks off their friendship as he's angry that Peter had lied to him. [[spoiler:But not long after, he pretends to want to reconcile their friendship in order to trick Peter into helping him find the Jackal's lab.]]
** This goes a step further when Harry learns that Peter and Spider-Man are actually the same person during the "Spider-Island" storyline but their friendship gets better in "The Hobgoblin". [[spoiler:However, the "Goblin War" storyline reveals Harry lied about being overseas and actually built the Goblin Mech, something Peter points out.]]
** In the "Goblin War" storyline, Harry gets gradually enraged by [[spoiler:the Goblin King leading the Goblin Nation using mass-produced Goblin technology]]. Yet earlier in "The Hobgoblin", Harry's Hobgoblin technology included [[spoiler:the Vulture's sonic scream]].
* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: [[spoiler:After learning that Doc Ock has brainwashed Spider-Man into joining the Sinister Six, Harry drops all his hatred and tries to reach Peter to break out of the mind control. He succeeds.]]
* {{Irony}}[=/=]DramaticIrony: He values his friendship with Peter but distrusts Spider-Man. Naturally, this leads to loads of dramatic tension throughout Season 1.
* IrrationalHatred: No matter how many people Spider-Man continues to save, Harry refuses to see Spider-Man in a positive light [[spoiler:until the "Spider Island" arc when Spider-Gwen calls him out and after he finds out Peter is Spider-Man. This hatred is dialed UpToEleven when Peter lets Oz Academy get destroyed even though it can always be rebuilt and that it helped cure everyone in New York City.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Harry may have an irrational hatred of Spider-Man, and can be morally skewed but is ultimately a good person. A good example is in the last two parts of the "Spider Island" arc, where [[spoiler:he's understandably upset about Peter not telling him of being Spider-Man, but at least tries to make amends when he sees Peter saving his father]]. "The Hobgoblin" expands on this where he's still mad at Peter for [[spoiler:letting Osborn Academy blow up when trying to save the city]], but has a change of heart when he sees [[spoiler:Peter brainwashed committing crimes, is initially mad, but then tries to get to Spider-Man when he sees the truth]]. He's got quite a bit to do, but he's getting better.
* MythologyGag:
** [[spoiler:His thermal jumpsuit and breathing mask which is a homage to the [[Film/SpiderMan3 New Goblin]].]]
** [[spoiler:His Hobgoblin alter ego is a homage to his Ultimate counterpart in the ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'' comics.]]
** [[spoiler:His knowledge of Mechas is a homage to Normie Osborn having a similar knowledge.]]
* TheNotLoveInterest: Similar to his counterpart in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}''. Harry's friendship with Peter, and how it's affected by Peter's supposed flakiness, is the focus of multiple episodes and one of Peter's most important relationships.
* PutOnABus: Season 2 has Harry (initially) running Oscorp overseas, [[spoiler:or so Harry had claimed]]. Season 3/''Maximum Venom'' also has a noticeable lack of Harry until the climax, though Harry's whereabouts aren't explicitly alluded to this time.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:He finds out that Peter is Spider-Man in "Spider Island, Part 4", and was willing to keep it even though they weren't on the best of terms.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: Happens gradually throughout the series, usually coinciding with Harry's moments of character change and growth.
** [[spoiler:His fight against Dark Goblin in "Generations" shows that Harry's stepped up his game as a fighter during his long periods OutOfFocus in Season 2 and ''Maximum Venom''. He's shown to be able to keep up with Peter and the other Spiders, performing honed [[LeParkour parkour]] and acrobatic feats with just his Hobgoblin suit. While he loses his Goblin Glider early on, Harry still manages to keep pace and show off some epic maneuvers with a little help from Pete as support. He even deals the finishing blow to his dad that knocks the Dark Goblin back into the containment unit that transformed his dad in the first place, complete with a heroically timed OneLiner. A stark contrast to his [[RealityEnsues first real fight]] [[CurbStompBattle against Blizzard]] in Season 1.]]
* UnclePennybags: ''Wants'' to be this for Peter, bringing lunch and breakfast and offering to help cover the tuition costs of attending Horizon High, but Peter turns him down on the basis that it wouldn't feel right to be using his connections that way.]]
* UngratefulBastard: Rather than show appreciation for being saved from the [[KillerRobot Spider Slayer]], he accuses Spider-Man of trying to kill him. Subsequent episodes have him develop a grudge against the web-slinger. [[spoiler:He reaches his lowest point in the "Spider Island" arc, when he lashes out at Spider-Man for getting Osborn Academy destroyed even when New York is saved.]]
* WellDoneSonGuy: He really wants Norman's appreciation, going out of his way to try and impress Norman at every turn with his increasingly over the top and dangerous inventions. But, surprise, surprise, poor Harry doesn't get any of it because his dad is ''Norman Osborn.''
** This dilemma is [[spoiler:officially resolved in "Generations". Upon confronting the Dark Goblin, Harry muses that there was a point where he'd do anything for his father's approval. He then [[ShutUpHannibal definitively concludes]] that that point has long-since past, and they may share blood but [[YoureNotMyFather Norman is no father of Harry's]].]]
* WeUsedToBeFriends: He ends his friendship with Peter in "The Rise of Doc Ock, Part 4" after he gets fed up with Peter backing up Spider-Man, and again during "Spider Island, Part 5". [[spoiler:Thankfully, their friendship is rekindled during "The Hobgoblin" arc.]]

!!ComicBook/NormanOsborn
[[quoteright:291:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/norman_osborn_earth_trn633_from_marvels_spider_man_season_1_3_002.png]]
[[caption-width-right:291:]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JoshKeaton
Oscorp's CEO and Harry's father.
----
* [[AbusiveParents Abusive Dad]]: Played with example, but to start with [[spoiler:he frames Harry for a crime his son did not commit]] which is considered abusive for a father to do [[spoiler:(even though he has Spencer Smythe do it)]], not to mention saying that Harry wouldn't have anything without the Osborn name and discouraging from trying to establish himself outside of it, but some episodes shows that Norman cares for his son's safety. This dilemma is [[spoiler:officially at its worst in "Generations" where the Dark Goblin attacks Harry alongside Spider-Man's allies]].
* AdaptationalDumbass: Downplayed. While he's still a very adept manipulator, he gets blindsided by his arrogance more often than in his other incarnations, such as [[spoiler:failing to realize Otto Octavius was going to betray him as soon as he said that he owns Otto's tech]]. He also lacks the intelligence to make his own weapons and will stoop to stealing ideas from others.
* AdaptationalHeroism: To a lesser extent; while he is still as unscrupulous and ruthless as usual, his primary motivation here is to [[spoiler:stop the Jackal's creation of an army of spider-themed {{Super Soldier}}s]], an unusually altruistic goal for his character. He also antagonizes Spider-Man not out of greed or revenge as usual, but because [[spoiler:he wrongly believes Spider-Man to be working for the Jackal. Though it's ultimately subverted on the last part: turns out he wanted Harry to be a hero for the new generation, only for Spider-Man to show up at the wrong time and steal the thunder, so he planned to get rid of Spider-Man]].
* AdaptationalWimp: A variation when it comes to his symbiote-bonded Goblin form. His comics counterpart as the Red Goblin had what amounted to StorybreakerPower with no traditional symbiote weaknesses and manhandled the entire Spider-family, only losing in the end because Spider-Man convinced him to ditch the Carnage symbiote and fight man-to-man. This version [[spoiler:instead bonds with a synthetic symbiote to be the "Dark Goblin". Despite being so enhanced, both Harry and Spider-Man are still able to fight back against him and once the whole Spider-team joins the fray, the Dark Goblin is beaten soundly]].
* AntiVillain: Surprisingly. He is ruthless, manipulative, deceptive and corrupt, but [[spoiler:he genuinely wishes to prevent the Jackal's army of spider-soldiers]].
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:''Maximum Venom'' shows him alive as Curt Connors's contact who’s shown to be somewhere in what appears to be some kind of chamber with his face hidden except for behind the chair shows the top of his hair.]]
* BigBad: Of Season 1 and ''Maximum Venom'', most of the things that go wrong and villains that are created can be traced either directly or indirectly to him.
* BigBadEnsemble: He ends up scheming in conflict with other major villains: Raymond Warren/The Jackal during Season 1 and Venom during ''Maximum Venom''.
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler:"Generations" shows how severe his injuries from Season 1 are. The right side of his face is burned, he is deathly thin, and he is missing [[AnArmAndALeg his left arm and his right leg]]. As the Dark Goblin, he is instantly healed and his limbs are regenerated (possibly as a result of the synthetic symbiote) and even so when he's reverted back to normal.]]
%%* TheChessmaster
* CompositeCharacter:
** [[spoiler:His Dark Goblin form resembles his original counterpart's Red Goblin form with the symbiote abilities and the tail while having the Green Goblin's weaponry and green accents, and his Ultimate counterpart's Hulk-esque size.]]
** [[spoiler:His Spider-King form is an amalgamation of his six-armed counterpart (an alternate equivalent of [[ComicBook/SpiderGeddon Spider-Man]]) and the Spider-Queen.]]
** [[spoiler:His Hobgoblin impersonation is a mix of Roderick Kingsley and Phil Urich.]]
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He ''is'' Norman Osborn after all.
* DeflectorShields: He uses this whenever someone targets him personally.
* DevilInPlainSight: Even at his most Faux Affable, the guy's every word and action has "evil mastermind" written all over it.
* DrivenByEnvy: [[spoiler:Why he framed his own son; he was envious of Max being something greater than the Osborn name.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Can be stern and a bit controlling with Harry but loves his son all the same, despite being a villain. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, he abandons this redeeming aspect after Harry turns on him for masquerading as the Hobgoblin to kill Spider-Man]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: The Jackal approached Norman about working together on an army of spider soldiers and got turned down. Not only that but Norman is viciously driven to prevent this spider army's creation and opts for destroying the resources that would enable the plan rather than taking for his own use.
* EvilCounterpart:
** To Max Modell. Whereas Max prefers to work ethically and students to work together, Norman doesn't care about ethics and encourages competition between each other, even at its most extreme.
** To Uncle Ben. Whereas Ben taught Peter to use talents to help others in his own way, Norman tries to mold his son into a direction he prefers.
* EvilIsOneBigHappyFamily: Norman welcomes all to his faculty those who are morally bankrupt, or who feel betrayed by Modell for denying a chance at their work.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He keeps a courteous and pleasant tone while talking with Modell, but it's pretty clear that behind this thin-veiled facade, he has very clear disdain for the man. Most of the other characters who personally know Norman [[DevilInPlainSight know it's an act immediately]].
* Fiction500: Casually founds an entire academy filled with state-of-the-art technology in virtually no time at all. Then again, he ''is'' the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive CEO of Oscorp]], a rival of various industries.
* ForScience: He's more than willing to manipulate two teenagers who are best friends into attacking each other with lethal sonic weaponry just to see the full capabilities of their creations.
* {{Gaslighting}}: [[spoiler:Had Spencer set up Harry on purpose as an excuse to set up Osborn Academy to have Harry enrolled there, and then guilt-trips Harry and carefully derails his son's confidence to make dependent on his father's tutelage. This is a classic Norman trick common across all adaptations. He also does the same thing to Otto, giving incorrect information as to a cure for the Lizard, then pinning the blame on Spider-Man and leaking to news outlets that Otto is responsible for the Lizard's towering form that trashed the city]].
* GreaterScopeVillain: Like his Ultimate Universe depiction, this version's recurrent as the instigator in a lot of story arcs. It's his work with the Jackal that lead to the creation of the spider based genetic enhancements that empowered Peter, Miles, Anya and Gwen. His scheming to secure greater glory to the Osborn name lead to the creation of Osborn Academy where a lot of supervillains (and one superhero) got their start.
* HateSink: Unlike the [[WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan previous series]], this version is a complete {{Jerkass}} who [[spoiler:manipulates his own son in order to mold into his personal vision]], keeping him in line with his comic counterpart.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: Osborn has some plan or the other, involving [[spoiler:Warren's experiments on spiders, originally hoping to create super soldiers until he discontinued this research]].
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: His manipulations end up hurting him in a big way:
** [[spoiler:After revealing he owns Octavius's technology, Doc Ock takes control of the Oz Commandos whilst revealing an intent to take over Norman's company.]]
** [[spoiler:Norman destroying the Jackal's spider soldier technology is what led to the spider virus being airborne and New York City's citizens are turned in Spider-Creatures.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: He accuses Modell of being a GloryHound, but one of his main reasons for setting up Osborn Academy was to prove he could make a better school than Horizon High. [[spoiler:And "The Hobgoblin" arc reveals that he hates Spider-Man ''far'' more for being a hero before Harry could, essentially because this robbed the Osborn legacy of such a powerful figure.]]
* IHaveNoSon: [[spoiler:"Then you failed me, and deserve what you've wrought!"]]
* ILied: [[spoiler:He promised Connors he would fully cure the Lizard condition if he's restored. Once it's done, however, he admits that the cure was only temporary and that there is no way to make it permanent.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: He's a terrible person and is very upfront about this.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Norman ''thinks'' he is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold with his claims on being stern and tough yet ultimately wanting Harry to do good, but he's vile and cruel deep down.
* KickTheDog: He deliberately sets Herman and Clayton against each other after he sees that they're a team. [[spoiler:Then he sends Alistair Smythe against Spencer.]]
%%* KickTheSonOfABitch
* {{Leitmotif}}: Often accompanied by a quiet, eerie theme whenever he shows up.
* ManipulativeBastard: Can get most people to do what he wants simply by talking to them and preying on their fears, insecurities and desires, letting him get away with any one of his "experiments" since he didn't have to get his own hands dirty.
* MythologyGag:
** [[spoiler:He's briefly called "Normie" is an apparent nod to Normie Osborn.]]
** [[spoiler:His Hobgoblin impersonation is similar to what his mainstream counterpart did in the ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan'' comics.]]
* NeverFoundTheBody: [[spoiler:His body wasn’t found which leads to Peter and Harry believing he's still alive.]]
* NotHisSled: This version doesn't use the Green Goblin moniker, [[spoiler:however, he embraces the Dark Goblin name in ''Maximum Venom'']].
* RedHerring: [[spoiler:Norman's body wasn’t found, leading to Peter and Harry to believe he's seemingly returns in Season 2 as the Goblin King. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] as his actual status remains uncertain (at the time), and Adrian Toomes is the Goblin King while the heroes just had the wrong assumption.]]
* TheResenter: [[spoiler:Big time. He wanted Harry to be a hero of the new generation. But after Spider-Man showed up, he came to the conclusion that Spider-Man was stealing his son's thunder and made several plots to get rid of Spider-Man and get the Osborn name into the spotlight.]]
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:His defeat and near death in Season 1's finale has taken a toll on his mind, getting completely obsessed with revenge on Spider-Man. As the Dark Goblin, he refuses to acknowledge his humanity.]]
* SayingTooMuch: [[spoiler:While attacking as the Hobgoblin, he told Spider-Man that he would learn the web-slinger's secret identity before killing, making Spider-Man realize that it wasn't Harry attacking since Harry already knew Spider-Man's true identity.]]
* StageDad: [[spoiler:Wants to mold Harry into his idea of the hero that New York City needs, and got Harry kicked out of Horizon and set up Osborn Academy so he could keep a closer eye on and mentor himself instead of letting Max influence his son.]]
* StartMyOwn: After Harry's suspended from Horizon High, it's mentions that his dad wants to start his own, better school. He makes due on that promise in "Osborn Academy", and it's out of spite for how Modell and the other students at Horizon treated Harry. [[spoiler:And, given the plot to frame Harry was his idea, Norman was planning it from the start.]]
* ThatManIsDead: [[spoiler:As the Dark Goblin, he refuses to be called Norman Osborn ever again, and even insists that Spider-Man is Peter's true self.]]
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: [[spoiler:His survival is spoiled by the trailer of "Generations".]]
* UngratefulBastard: Max officially clears Harry of all charges, and how does Norman repay Horizon High? Burns all bridges with them by opening Osborn Academy and convinces Harry not to go back to Horizon, all because he can't forgive them for not believing in Harry. [[spoiler:The fact that it was Norman who framed Harry and started the situation is all the more hypocritical and cynical.]]
** [[spoiler:After Connors helped Norman with his plans in exchange of a cure for the Lizard mutations, the Dark Goblin repays this by refusing and bragging that the cures he supplied were always temporary.]]
* VillainousBreakdown:
** In "The Rise of Doc Ock, Part 4", [[spoiler:when he finds out that the Oz Commandos were no longer under his control results in him (for the first time in the series) stumbling, losing his coolheadedness (seen when he tries to kill the four experimental Spiders), and being legitimately afraid for his life]].
** In "The Hobgoblin", [[spoiler:he drops his FauxAffablyEvil act after being discovered as the Hobgoblin promptly trying to kill Spider-Man and then viciously disowns his son for refusing to follow his orders]].
* VillainHasAPoint:
** Despite the nefarious purpose behind his school, it's hard to argue against him when he mentions that Harry's classmates didn't stand by him when he was accused. Max in particular, while being a ReasonableAuthorityFigure about the whole thing ''and'' being smart enough to recognize Smythe framing him, still chose to suspend Harry before he absolutely had to. [[spoiler:Then again, the whole plot to frame Harry was Norman's idea, anyway. Nonetheless, the fact that those who knew Harry for the longest time didn't believe in his innocence in such a situation justifies that sentiment.]]
** He also didn't want Harry to debut his flying glider at the Stark Expo. Though Norman probably had his own agenda for the glider, he was still right to tell Harry not to present it there, considering a supervillain hijacked the expo and destroyed almost everybody's experiments there. Harry later understood afterwards.
** Although Max is the one who acknowledges it, no matter how morally bankrupt people see Norman as, he has the right to run his school as he sees fit, so Max has no say in the matter.
* WaistcoatOfStyle: This version sports one constantly, rather than the usual double-breasted suits he wears.

[[folder:Hobgoblin]]
!!Hobgoblin
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/MaxMittelman
----
* AdaptationalHeroism: Played with. Most incarnations are villains as the Hobgoblin, [[spoiler:however, Harry Osborn is depicted as a hero. Subverted with Norman Osborn's impersonation]].
* AdaptedOut: Roderick Kingsley and Phil Urich are nowhere to be seen.
* CastAsAMask: The Hobgoblin alter ego shares the same voice actor as Harry Osborn (voiced by Creator/MaxMittelman) as well as the antagonistic impersonator [[spoiler:who is unmasked to be Norman Osborn (voiced by Creator/JoshKeaton)]].
* CompositeCharacter: This version of Hobgoblin is an amalgamation of Urich with the flame sword, being a heroic Goblin and sonic scream, and Kingsley with the flying glider. [[spoiler:Plus the identity being used by Harry such as his Ultimate counterpart.]]
* CoolSword: The Hobgoblin uses a blade made out of fire.
* DecompositeCharacter: In-universe. [[spoiler:The Hobgoblin mantle is used by Harry primarily as a hero while Norman's impersonation comes off as a villain.]]
* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler:Norman-Goblin]] is one to Spider-Man. Whereas Spider-Man makes sure civilians are safe from danger, the Hobgoblin will actually welcome collateral damage.
* {{Foil}}: [[spoiler:Harry-Goblin]] is one to Spider-Man. While Spider-Man relies on spider strength, the Hobgoblin replies on an arsenal of weapons. Both make their own respective tech, however, Spider-Man has limited resources while the Hobgoblin has Oscorp's limitless resources [[spoiler:to the point of mass-production for the Goblin Nation]].
* MythologyGag: The Hobgoblin alter-ego being created by Oscorp is an homage to the [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries 1990s animated series]].

[[folder:Otto Octavius / Doctor Octopus]]
!![[ComicBook/DoctorOctopus Doctor Octopus (Otto Octavius)]]
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img_08022018_202303.jpg]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/ScottMenville
A young but brilliant, somewhat irritable teacher at Horizon High, Otto Octavius ends up suffering an accident leading to one of his inventions, a harness with tentacle-like apprendices, being merged to his body. He is initially inspired by Peter into becoming a hero as "the Octopus", but tensions with Max Modell, coupled with Norman Osborn's manipulations, eventually lead him to quit and join Oz Academy instead. When Osborn betrays his trust as well, he turns against him and starts a career as a criminal, renaming himself Doctor Octopus.
----
* AbusiveParents: [[spoiler:During his childhood, his father Torbert was shown to be both physically and verbally abusive to Otto, such as pushing and belittling him about science.]]
* ActingYourIntellectualAge: Despite being nineteen, which is very young for an adult, he acts and talks to students as if he's even older.
* ActuallyIAmHim: When Peter first meets him, Peter mistakes Otto for a fellow student and mentions the bad things heard about Otto. It's only upon seeing a picture of Otto receiving an award from the Mayor that Peter realizes of talking to Otto.
* AdaptationalHeroism: While his comic counterpart always was a NobleDemon and did try to act as a hero during a [[ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan specific arc]], he started out as a straight villain and was one for most of his career. This incarnation, while definitely a JerkAss with ego problems, starts out as a hero before his ego gets the better of him in season 1. He also doesn't snap and go psychopathic after his freak accident like most versions of his character did, instead continuing his career as a teacher until [[spoiler:the tensions with Modell lead him to quit]]. In season 2, he also [[spoiler:makes a genuine attempt to [[HeelFaceTurn reform]] after giving Peter's body back, and dies a hero in season 2's finale]].
* AlliterativeName: '''O'''tto '''O'''ctavius.
* AppropriatedAppellation: Implied. Briefly in "The Rise of Doc Ock, Part 3", Peter refers to the Oz Commandos as "sinister". In the very next part, after revealing that he [[spoiler:used mind control on the other members]], he refers to the group as the "Sinister Five".
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:At the end of "The Living Brain", he successfully takes over Spider-Man's body after transferring his consciousness from the titular robot. [[AndIMustScream Guess where Spidey's consciousness is now?]]]]
* BewareTheQuietOnes: While Otto's definitely an InsufferableGenius, he does tend to dip into this on some occasions. [[spoiler:The most recent case being the "quiet one" of the "Oz Commandos", being subservient to Osborn until the Oz Commandos are ordered to finish off the Jackal...which is where Doc Ock reveals his ManipulativeBastard qualities through EvilGloating.]]
* BigBadEnsemble: [[spoiler:His scheming and machinations in the "Rise of Doc Ock" multi-parter puts him on the same level as Norman Osborn and the Jackal in season 1. With Norman seemingly killed and the Jackal out of the picture, Octavius is the only operating major villain of season 2's first half.]]
* BigOlEyebrows: Has a rather big set of those.
* BodyHorror: His robotic arms are ''merged'' with his nervous system now in "The Rise of Doc Ock Part 1".
* CharacterDevelopment: [[spoiler:Spending time as the Superior Spider-Man significantly softens him, putting him toward a genuine effort to become a hero (albeit [[GoodIsNotNice much darker than Peter]]), and his interactions with Anna Maria and the swap being undone result in him shedding a lot of his worst tendencies as both Doctor Octopus and the Superior Spider-Man, becoming an ally to Peter as a result.]]
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:How did he manage to get control of Peter's body? By sending wave after wave of villains after him to tire him out.]]
* CompositeCharacter: He is under Oscorp's employment like his Ultimate Marvel version and is the Sinister Six's leader like his mainstream version. His connection with Horizon High and [[spoiler:his mind within the Neuro-Cortex followed by a robot body also makes him one to his backup consciousness and the Living Brain]].
* CoolShades: In his pre-villain days, he occasionally wore black sunglasses through experiments and crime-fighting.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:He sacrifices himself to save New York during the "Goblin War" arc.]]
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler:He dies in Peter's in "Goblin War, Part 4".]]
* EvilCounterpart: Another one to Peter Parker/Spider-Man; they're remarkably intelligent for their age and driven to do good by a figure who gave them a pep-talk on using their abilities responsibly, but unlike Peter, Otto's ego cripples his judgment and eventually results in him being a villain. In a dark mirror to Max seeing Peter's potential and letting him into Horizon, Norman wants Octavius to be part of Oscorp, [[spoiler:something Norman succeeds in]]. [[spoiler:He also leads a team of people with great scientific minds, but instead of a mutual desire to work together, has implanted mind control devices on them to render them subservient to him.]]
* EvilGenius: [[spoiler:Is ''miffed'' with Norman after discovering the Octobot project. When he confronts Norman about this, Norman nonchalantly dismisses his complaints, since Oscorp owns Otto's research contractually. To get back at Norman, Otto utilizes mind-control devices he developed alongside the Jackal in order to completely brainwash the Oz Commandos and severely wound Norman, effortlessly taking over Oscorp as well as the Jackal's own research. ''Damn.'']]
* EvilIsHammy: He was mostly a stoic grump before, but he gets more bombastic as Doctor Octopus.
* FatalFlaw: {{Pride}}. While Otto undeniably is brilliant, he is so convinced of his own genius that he dismisses ''everyone'' as less intelligent than him and doesn't even considers they might have a point. Most notably, he worked on an extremely volatile power source ''in a school's basement'' in blatant disregard for the students' security, based on the argument that surely, someone with a superior intelligence like him would ''know'' how to make it safe. [[spoiler:Amusingly, this also is what prevents him from figuring out Spider-Man's identity; despite having recognize Peter's tech on one of Spider-Man's tracers, his assumption is that Peter is ''providing'' tech for Spider-Man rather than being Spider-Man himself, because he cannot believe Spider-Man would be smart enough to build his own tech like himself is.]]
* ForScience: His primary motivation. He considers any risk to be worth the pursuit of scientific advancement, and looks down on those who think otherwise.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:He was bullied as a child for his short stature, and his father physically and emotionally abused him because he resented his intelligence and love of science. That instilled in him the constant need to prove his superiority over others that would ultimately lead him down the path of villainy.]]
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:As his molecules are ripped apart by his HeroicSacrifice, Otto can't help but smile tearfully because he finally found a best friend with Peter.]]
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:At the end of "The Living Brain", he transfers his consciousness into Spider-Man. With neither Miles nor Spider-Girl none the wiser.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:"Superior" has him sacrificing himself to give Peter's body back after realizing what it truly means to be a hero. When he wakes up from his coma in "The Cellar", he seems to be on his way towards being an ally.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:In "Goblin War, Part 4", he uses the Neuro Cortex to disable Adrian Toomes's mech, but at the cost of his own life.]]
* HijackedByGanon: [[spoiler:He turns out to be the mastermind who put a bounty on Spider-Man's head in season 2, hoping to tire Peter out until he could finally enact his plan to steal Spider-Man's body.]]
* IHaveManyNames: Otto Octavius, Doctor Octopus, Doc Ock, The Octopus, [[spoiler:Superior Spider-Man]].
* IJustWantToBeLoved: It's buried so deep even Otto's not aware of it, but all he really wants is to be accepted. Unfortunately, thanks to [[spoiler:his father's abuse]] and the resulting superiority complex, he believes it doesn't come unconditionally, so he must prove he's worthy of people's acknowledgement. At the time of the series, he's long forgotten ''why'' he needs to be smarter than everybody else.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: For all his arrogance, Otto really is looking for people recognizing his genius, something he had trouble finding due to his young age, and as such tends to follow whoever acknowledges him as brilliant. Max being the first to recognize him despite his age was what led him to join Horizon High. [[spoiler:This is also exploited by Norman to create tension between him and Max, and get him to join Oscorp.]]
* InsufferableGenius: Otto is an incredibly smart and talented scientist, especially considering his age; unfortunately, he also is very arrogant, dismissive of others and constantly convinced he knows better than anyone else around him due to his intelligence.
* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: "The Rise of Doc Ock" reveals he always was considered a freak by his peers due to his high intelligence, presumably leading to his asocial behavior.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Arrogant, dismissive of others, easily annoyed and generally an unpleasant teacher, but does occasionally compliment his students, and his bouts of heroism were genuine, if somewhat reluctant. [[spoiler:He's later released from prison after his Sinister Six stunt was foiled, and in the months spent he gained three degrees, and seems to have TookALevelInKindness]], however [[spoiler:the Kindness part turns out be be an act and he became a JerkWithAHeartOfJerk to use his kind facade as a way for his master plan. As of "The Cellar", however, he seems to have fully become this trope. Time will tell if it sticks.]]
* LoveRedeems: [[spoiler:It's ultimately his feelings for Anna Maria and desire to validate her belief that he's a hero that push him towards cementing his HeelFaceTurn.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:After spending much of his tenure in the Oz Commandos as TheQuietOne, Octavius fully embraces his supervillain status by expositing his plan to overthrow Norman as head of Oscorp, since the company owns all his research. To that end, he utilized the Jackal's mind-control research to brainwash the rest of the Commandos into his minions and formed a VillainTeamUp with the Jackal, ''off-screen and out of prying eyes''. The plan goes off without a hitch...except, of course, for the fact that Norman apparently survives the ordeal. Still, the minimal time and effort Otto put into his plan is astounding.]]
* MissionControl: As of "The Road to Goblin War", [[spoiler:Otto finds a new way to be a hero as Spider-Man's partner behind the Spider's Nest computers, headset and all, and controlling the Spider-Bots.]]
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: [[spoiler:He turns against Osborn after finding out Norman stole his technology by hiring him.]]
* MoralMyopia: [[spoiler:After the Sinister Five are freed from his mind control and attack him, he is outraged that they would "betray" him, believing that he was helping the group to "achieve greatness".]]
* NeverMyFault: [[spoiler:In "The Hobgoblin, Part One", he claims that Max Modell had "practically driven" him to side with Osborn.]]
* NeverTrustATrailer: This version of Doctor Octopus is 19 years old, only slightly older than Peter. However, [[https://static3.comicvine.com/uploads/original/4/46646/5813593-6718589659-15403.jpg a poster to promote the show]] features the traditional middle-aged version with a bowl cut.
* NoBodyLeftBehind: [[spoiler:In "Goblin War, Part 4", his body fades away after he dies, leaving only his tentacles.]]
* NotSoAboveItAll: Otto spends most of his earlier episodes as TheStoic, and looks down to the Spider-Men for their goofy antics. However, he himself displays a liking for catchy names (he came up himself with his two aliases and the Sinister Five name), makes attempts at witty banter during his brief career as a hero, and [[EvilIsHammy can at times be quiet hammy]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: He is ''nineteen'', but looks young enough that Peter initially mistakes him for a fellow student.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Much like the comics, Octavius created a nuclear reactor with mechanical arms, requiring engineering and nuclar physics degrees. Somewhat justified in his return when he gained three more doctorates (at least one in neuroscience) [[spoiler:during his time in prison]], which helps the plot along significantly.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:In the "Goblin War" arc, he uses the Neuro Cortex to defeat Toomes to make up for his sins, but dies in Peter's arms in doing so.]]
* ReformedButRejected: [[spoiler:Unsurprisingly, no one except Anna Maria and Peter is willing to accept his genuine turn to the side of good, especially since he faked being reformed once before, not to mention the many moral lines he crossed as a supervillain. It takes him sacrificing himself for everyone to acknowledge his turn to good.]]
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:In the "Superior Spider-Man" arc, he learns about Peter's identity while possessing Spider-Man's body.]]
* ShadowArchetype: [[spoiler:He's basically what Peter would've turned into without the kindness and support of Aunt May and Uncle Ben. Like Peter, he's a promising man of science who was bullied for his intelligence. Without anyone to support him and put him on the right path, however, Otto became obsessed with proving his superiority over those who belittled him, which evolved into a full-blown InferioritySuperiorityComplex that would lead him to eventually becoming a supervillain. Upon finding out about his past, Peter notes how they're NotSoDifferent.]]
* ShorterMeansSmarter: Is much shorter than Peter, and quite brilliant.
* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Seems to be the impetus of his eventual transformation into Dr. Octopus; he was bullied by his peers for his intelligence, [[spoiler:was unable to keep the job he has at Horizon due to Max assuming the worst of him, and then finding out that he doesn't own any of his tech anymore]]. These, coupled with calling his team "the Sinister Five", suggests he's decided to drop any pretense of being a hero entirely.
* TheStoic: He's not much on emotions.
* TheUsurper: [[spoiler:Is primarily this to Osborn as leader of the "Oz Commandos" (aka the Sinister Five), having severely injured him in the finale of "Rise of Doc Ock", and surprisingly this to the Jackal as well, at least in terms of his mind-control research.]]
* VillainTeamUp: [[spoiler:Teams up with the Jackal to help along with his mutiny of Oscorp, although the latter seems to consider the deal more of an EnemyMine.]]
* VoiceForTheVoiceless: He speaks for the Sinister Five who never speak since they are [[spoiler:being mind-controlled by him]].
* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: [[spoiler:He becomes this for Peter, and later the other Spiders, after he reverses their bodyswap and comes out of his coma.]]
* YoungerAndHipper: This version is only nineteen instead of a middle-aged man as in the comics and other versions.

[[caption-width-right:350:]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JohnDiMaggio
A scientist who can turn into an animalistic, green-furred criminal trying to steal technology for unknown purposes. [[spoiler:Also happens to be Gwen's uncle. Later revealed to have created the spiders behind Peter's and Miles's abilities- and he fully intends to use them to create an entire army at his command.]]
----
* ActuallyADoombot: [[spoiler:The creature that attacked Norman and the one in prison were both his clones, with the latter revealing this is a favored tactic for keeping the real Jackal out of the spotlight.]]
* AdaptedOut: Miles Warren is nowhere to be seen and the Jackal persona is used by his brother Raymond Warren.
* AdaptationOriginConnection: [[spoiler:This version is responsible for the creation of the spiders who behind the abilities of Peter and the main cast. He is also responsible for the Rhino serum.]]
* AdaptationalVillainy: The Jackal's comic counterpart was driven insane by Gwen's [[ComicBook/TheNightGwenStacyDied infamous demise]], but was classified as an AntiVillain. This version has no such excuse and only seeks to perfect his projects at the expense of everyone else.
* ArtEvolution: He sports prominent [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] when he [[spoiler:reappears in ''Maximum Venom'']] along with gaunter facial features that make him look even more deranged.
* AxCrazy: While his human self (despite still being evil) is a bit more collected, his Jackal persona displays psychopathic tendencies, including trying to kill random bystanders or threatening to dissect Spider-Man so he could figure out how his nemesis's powers work.
* BigBadEnsemble: He ends up in conflict with Season 1's other major villain Norman Osborn.
* TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler:After having a long absence, he finally returns in ''Maximum Venom''.]]
* CompositeCharacter: His comics counterpart is the Jackal's ''brother'' but [[OneSteveLimit seeing as the Jackal's name was Miles and this series already has a character named Miles as a protagonist... yeah]]. This version also has a character trait from [[spoiler:Arthur Stacy through being portrayed as Gwen's uncle]].
* CreepyUncle: [[spoiler:The way he has Gwen pinned on the bed with his creation and his way of wanting Gwen to respect him, gives him some creepy implications for a show aimed for kids.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: As evil as he is, Raymond does seem to genuinely care about [[spoiler:Gwen]], as he [[spoiler:actually goes through the trouble of saving his niece in the middle of a crime]].
* EvilUncle: [[spoiler:He's Gwen Stacy's uncle.]]
* EvilVersusEvil: Both he and Norman are ruthless and willing to do morally questionable things to reach their goals, but they end up in conflict due to [[spoiler:Norman opposing his plan to create a spider soldier army]].
* ExpendableClone: [[spoiler:Uses these to keep himself incognito, and even the clones themselves go along with this, to the point of one in prison killing himself upon learning that another one self-destructed.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: Likes to have seemingly genial conversations with his opponents and co-workers, but it's clear that much of it isn't genuine at all.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: [[spoiler:As of ''Maximum Venom'', he's now behind bars.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Episodes involving him tend to be game changers, due to his personal connection to [[spoiler:Gwen Stacy]], and his overall influence having series-wide consequences. He's also regularly portrayed as being among the most evil of Spider-Man's enemies in the series, being far more willing to intentionally try and commit murder on innocent bystanders for seemingly no reason. He's also the villain that came the closest to succeeding at their goals throughout Season 1, with the events of [[spoiler:Spider-Island]].
* MadScientist: Just like in his comic equivalent, this version is implied to have created the serum behind the ability to shapeshift into a jackal-man, and [[spoiler:is responsible for both mutating the Rhino and creating the spiders which are behind the main cast's abilities.]]
* OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: He has the ability to switch between his human form and furry, green-haired BeastMan with jackal ears.
* OutOfFocus: He's largely absent from Season 2, and left mostly unacknowledged with sporadic references to his influence to be referenced but with no physical reappearance. [[spoiler:He officially returns in ''Maximum Venom'', temporarily working with Osborn.]]
* RedHerring: Played with. He's introduced with almost no formal introduction in his first appearance, much like the Scorpion, seemingly indicating that he's going to be a BitPartBadGuy, but at the end of his episode, [[spoiler:is shown to secretly be Gwen's uncle]], highlighting that he's really going to be a very important character, and in fact one of the most major antagonists of the series.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: This version is [[spoiler:Gwen Stacy's uncle]].
* SendInTheClones: Just like in the comics, he has a big liking for clones. [[spoiler:In this case, he repeatedly uses clones of himself as decoys, and intends to create an army of them with Spider-Man's abilities.]]
* SuicideAttack: His clones have a self-destruct feature. A Jackal and Raymond Warren clone both use it to try to kill Norman and Spider-Man respectively.
* ThatManIsDead [[spoiler:In ''Maximum Venom'', he no longer responds to Raymond Warren and considers himself to be only The Jackal.]]

* AlliterativeName: '''S'''pencer '''S'''mythe.
* BullyingTheDragon: Mouths off to the Vulture only to get sent flying into a wall by his sonic weapon.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: "Ultimate Spider-Man" implied that he cares for his son.
* HateSink: Frames Harry for nearly killing everyone at Max's speech, inadvertently messes up his relationship with Peter, and considering [[spoiler:[[ForegoneConclusion what happens to his kid in the comics...]]]] [[spoiler:It turns out this was exploited by Norman, needing him to sabotage the project so that Norman would have an excuse to place Harry into Osborn Academy]].
* KickTheDog: In the first episode, he sabotages an experimental machine during Horizon High's demonstration, and frames his former student Harry, putting numerous people in danger and resulting in the latter being suspended indefinitely solely to spite Max Modell.
* PlayingGertrude: Creator/BenDiskin (who's in his mid-30s) voices the middle-aged character. Additionally, Spencer is the father of Alistair--and Diskin is 9 years ''younger'' than Jason Spisak (Alistair's voice actor).
* {{Revenge}}: Seeks retribution against Norman for not honoring their deal.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/AlastairDuncan

----
* AdaptationalVillainy: While his comic counterpart has more redeeming qualities, this version is far more vile, [[spoiler:willing to use his minions as tools and having no problem with the idea of killing many civilians just to get to Spider-Man]], making him the second most amoral version of Adrian Toomes right next to his Noir counterpart.
* AgeLift: Instead of an elderly man, this version is presented as being more of a middle aged man with his hair still intact and with full color.
* ArcVillain: [[spoiler:Of the "Goblin War" arc as the Goblin King.]]
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:He's a member of the Sinister Five via mind control in "The Rise of Doc Ock, Part 4" and "The Hobgoblin, Part 1".]]
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He's much more impulsive, loud, and egotistical in the pilot episode, but later appearances have shown him to be one of the few of Norman's henchmen to be relatively sane, mild-mannered, and even refuses to steal from Horizon [[PragmaticVillainy because it'd jeopardize having just got out of prison]]. Given that Alistair wears a different Vulture suit and demonstrates a lot of the same traits as Toomes's first appearance, it was likely to help keep the two distinct when they both wore the Vulture technology.
* CompositeCharacter: His Vulture technology is a mix of his original incarnation and his MCU counterpart. [[spoiler:He also later takes on the Goblin King identity.]]
* TheDragon: He's Norman's top enforcer after he is bailed.
* FatalFlaw: {{Pride}}. His inflated sense of pride is why he's the Vulture and attacks Max Modell. This trait also allows the Wake Riders to convince him to return to a life of crime in "Rise Above It All" and ultimately drive him [[spoiler:in his crusade as the Goblin King]].
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:He goes from a glorified minion of Norman and Doctor Octopus to the leader of a crime movement that has practically every criminal in New York.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler:His motivation in the "Goblin War" arc is that he wishes to be recognized for his technology which has been claimed by Oscorp. He accomplishes this by assimilating Electro's and Silvermane's inventions into the Goblin Nation, and stealing the Hobgoblin's schematics.]]
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Since Spencer pretty much falls into the HateSink category, the Vulture attacking Spencer can come off as this.
* MakeMeWannaShout: The Vulture's main WeaponOfChoice in contrast to his other versions.
* MoralMyopia: During a {{Crossover}} with ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'', he insisted that he wasn't a criminal despite breaking out of jail with Ulysses Klaue's help. When Spider-Man arrived on the scene, he tried to "prove" himself by attempting to capture Klaue while wrecking Horizon's gym as he did. When Spidey pointed out all the damage he was causing, the Vulture replied "And your point is?".
* NeverMyFault: Modell fired him for stealing equipment that belonged to the school. He got pissed and decides to kill Max, blaming Max for it.
* NeverTrustATrailer: This version looks like he came out of ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''. However, [[https://static3.comicvine.com/uploads/original/4/46646/5813593-6718589659-15403.jpg a poster to promote the show]] features a design more akin to his counterpart in ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming''.
* PoweredArmor: His Vulture technology grants him {{flight}} and a sonic scream. [[spoiler:As the Goblin King, he sports a bulkier, green Goblin suit followed by the Goblin Mech.]]
* PragmaticVillainy: He's bailed out of jail in "Symbiotic Relationship", and when Norman tells him to go steal the V-252 from Horizon, he points out that he just got out of prison and doesn't want to risk getting caught again so soon.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:He's the Goblin King, not Norman as everyone initially assumes.]]
* StarterVillain: The first proper supervillain that Spider-Man fights in the series.

----
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: [[spoiler:In "The Day Without Spider-Man", he grows to a larger size after getting blasted by the Bloodstone.]]
* BewareMyStingerTail: As per usual with the Scorpion, his main method to fight is a gigantic tail with a stinger. He can also use it to shoot beams in this incarnation.
* BitPartBadGuy: In the second episode, he shows up robbing a museum without much context as to who he is or how he got his suit, just to give Spidey someone to fight in the BatmanColdOpen.
* DecompositeCharacter: His comic counterpart's status as Venom's third major host is [[spoiler:Eddie]] instead.
* DemotedToExtra: Compared to all of Spider-Man's other mainstay antagonists who show up in the series, a majority of whom have gotten an origin story. The Scorpion gets no backstory or even any context as to who he is.
** Averted where he has a much bigger role in "The Day Without Spider-Man", where he teams up with the Tinkerer.
* EnergyWeapon: This version's stinger shoots lasers rather than the venom most iterations are infamous for in most media.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/GreyDeLisle
----
* AdaptationRelationshipOverhaul: This version isn't romantically interested in Spider-Man unlike other incarnations.
* ClassyCatBurglar: A staple of the character, although this version doesn't mind stealing stuff in broad daylight.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: Steals a car from a local dealership, apparently not knowing car dealers intentionally keep exhibit cars at low gas.
* {{Expy}}: She can be seen as one to Catwoman, due to her cat burglar shtick and being rather playful with the hero. She's even voiced by her voice actress from the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'' .
* TheGadfly: Spends her entire debut episode messing with Spidey and treating attempts to apprehend her as if it's some big game. She also doesn't take it badly when Spidey hands her over to the cops.
* KarmaHoudini: Zig-zagged. This version, unlike most versions, gets arrested as while Spider-Man actually is bothered by this, but it's implied she'll break out before she even makes it to jail.
* LogicalWeakness: If she were to look at a mirror while her bad luck powers are active, she herself gets inflicted with misfortune.
* WindsOfDestinyChange: She can affect luck. To be more specific, inflict bad luck on anyone she looks at if she wishes to.

-> '''Voiced by''': Music/SofiaCarson

Flint Marko's estranged daughter who was taken by Hammerhead.
----
* AdaptationNameChange: Her comics counterpart had the last name Alvarado, but this version has her father's last name.
* AdaptationalBadass: This version inherits her father's abilities, while her comics counterpart was a regular human girl. This aspect of her character may have been taken instead from ''ComicBook/SpiderManReign''.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Her comics counterpart was a CheerfulChild and supportive of her father and didn't understand that he was a villain. This version, however, is hostile and resentful towards Flint and joins Hammerhead. Although she inherits her father's powers, she outright kills Flint.
* AgeLift: Her comics counterpart was about seven or eight when she met the adult Spider-Man. This version's a teenager at the same time Spider-Man is.
* AssholeVictim: Downplayed. [[spoiler:Keemia gets turned into a glass statue by Superior Spider-Man in season 2. Normally, viewers would feel bad for her given her rough life. Then again, since she possibly murdered her father in season 1, it's hard to muster sympathy for her.]]
* {{Bifauxnen}}: Keemia dresses in punk clothes and has a boyish look, but is a girl.
* BlindingBangs: Her hair covers her right eye (or rather, what used to be her eye).
* TheBusCameBack: She returns in season 2, having apparently become a crime boss.
* CallingTheOldManOut: In Season 1, she berates her father's criminal activities during their fight. She also outright tells her old man how stupid he was for bringing her anywhere near Hammerhead, and then leaving her alone.
* CompositeCharacter: She has the antagonistic and criminal traits that are usually associated with her father from the comics and other versions.
* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: When she appears in Flint's flashback, she seems to be at most aloof. When she's revealed to be working for Hammerhead, she doesn't sound completely sane anymore and is borderline berserk.
* DespairEventHorizon: By the time Spider-Man and Flint track her down in Season 1, she seems to have completely given up on her dreams of studying hard and carving out a brighter future for herself than her less-educated criminal father. Instead, she accepts she has no options other to be a criminal too, and throws herself into the role with a manic, berserk fervor.
* TheDragon: Serves as this for Hammerhead.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Sort of. Although she's Flint's daughter, she says that she hates Flint before possibly crushing her father into dust.
** That said, Keemia only got mutated when she followed her father into the factory because she was frightened, and clearly thought she would be safe. She was tragically wrong.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: In Season 2, she is now shown wearing a red beanie and a red shirt.
* EvilCounterpart: To Spider-Man. She's encouraged to use her powers for personal gain by someone she considers a surrogate father, rather than using them responsibly.
* EvilGenius: During her MotiveRant in Season 1, she mentions being very good at science ([[RunningGag like seemingly everyone else in the series thus far]]), having studied hard in order to build a brighter future for herself than the one her father has. She also figures out her powers and how to use them much sooner than her father did.
* EyeScream: Her right eye is made of sand as a result of her mutation, which explains her hair covering the right side of her face.
** Unlike Flint being able to pass for human completely, her eye seems to be in a permanent state of sand. While she can pass for a regular girl with her hair hanging over it, all it takes is a breeze to blow the hair out of the way...
* HateSink: While Keemia ''does'' have a FreudianExcuse for her nasty temperament, it doesn't justify her decisions, and she ends up being more vile than the original Sandman ever was. Not only does she seemingly murder her father, she also becomes a mob enforcer. And tries to kill Spider-Man as well, ''just for trying to help!'' [[spoiler:It's pretty much satisfying to see Superior Spider-Man turn her into a glass sculpture.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}:
** In season one, she admonishes her father for his criminal lifestyle and hates him for the accident that gave her superpowers, but ended up joining the exact same gang that tried to murder him and indirectly gave her powers that she freely uses. By the time of her return in season two, she's become a worse criminal than her father ever was (and is clearly [[EvilFeelsGood enjoying]] every minute of it).
** In Season 2, she claims Spider-Man is "just a kid", even though she's a teenager herself.
* {{Jerkass}}: A major one. When her father and Spider-Man show up to rescue her, she rudely says the fight doesn't concern Spider-Man.
* KarmaHoudini: In season 1, she escapes after Spider-Man has defeated Hammerhead's goons and tries to capture her. She returns in season 2, still on the run from the police.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: When she finally does make another appearance, [[spoiler:the Superior Spider-Man sets off a trap [[AndIMustScream to turn her into glass]], [[LiterallyShatteredLives and would have shattered her to pieces if it weren't for the Ultimate Spy-D]].]]
* KickTheDog: She downright kills Flint, even though her father outright refuses to fight back. This leads to Spider-Man unleashing the V-252 suit and defeating her.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: She seems honestly unaware that the "accident" behind her and Flint's abilities was in fact a deliberate attempt by Hammerhead to kill her father, blaming her father for it instead of her savior.
* NeverMyFault: She blames her father for getting her involved in the "accident" behind both of their superpowers, even though it was her decision to sneak out of the car and enter the building he was in.
** Crosses with VillainHasAPoint, though. What kind of father would bring his teenage daughter to a place where he was planning to meet a crime boss... and then leave her all alone in the car?
* NiceHat: Wears a green beanie in Season 1, which becomes part of her once she transforms. [[spoiler:She changes it to a red one in Season 2.]]
* SelfMadeOrphan: Seemingly [[{{Patricide}} kills her father]] in a fit of rage.
* TragicMonster: The reason she got mutated as well was because she was afraid to be left alone in an unfamiliar place, and so followed her father. Her MotiveRant as she attacks him during the climax reveals that she'd worked hard in order to avoid going down the same path of the criminal her father did, but now that she was a mutated freak that was all for nothing.
* UngratefulBitch: She hates her father for working for a criminal in spite of everything done was to support her. And by the time Flint and Spider-Man show up to rescue her, she attacks the two relentlessly.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In spite of being introduced in a fairly plot important episode, she's completely unaccounted for by the end of season 1, and doesn't show up in any of Hammerhead's other appearances. She finally shows up again in season 2.
* TheWorfEffect: She manages to defeat her father and nearly kill Spider-Man, up until the V-252 merges with Spidey, resulting in her being on the ropes.

A crime boss who Flint Marko and Randy Macklin used to work for.
----
* BigBadWannabe: Considering (Norman, Otto, the Jackal, Toomes and Venom) are more competent threats to Spider-Man than him.
* BrooklynRage: As expected at this point, this version sports a Brooklyn accent.
* BullyingADragon: Antagonizes Mackiln and gets frozen to the wall for it.
* ButtMonkey: Out of the recurring villains, he's the most likely to be humiliated or left in a precarious position, often thanks to his own actions (the area he's hiding out with Keemia ends up destroyed, he gets frozen by Blizzard, and [[PoorCommunicationKills doesn't disclose the importance of an encrypted thumb-drive]] to Absorbing Man to keep things simple which sabotages his operations).

* QualityVsQuantity: Expresses the belief that while supervillains are more expensive than regular hoods, they also make more to make up for it.
* PetTheDog: Downplayed. He takes in Keemia and even helps restore Keemia after being exposed to the same mixture of sand and toxic waste that he tried to kill Sandman with. That said, he also gleefully manipulated Keemia's vulnerable emotional state in order to gain her loyalty.

A substance found in outer space, with properties that enhance Spider-Man's powers and webbing.
----
* AdaptedOut: One of the abilities the Venom Suit gave to its hosts was [[spoiler:Spider-Man's identity. Flash Thompson was the host in season 1, but doesn't know who is Spider-Man. Subverted once Eddie Brock was the host in season 2, retaining the knowledge of Spider-Man's identity]].
* AdaptationalVillainy: Most iterations of Venom are only villainous as a result of absorbing the negative thoughts and emotions of their previous hosts and typically only fixate on Peter Parker and Eddie at most. [[spoiler:This version is revealed in ''Maximum Venom'' to actually be a scout for a full-blown AlienInvasion.]]
* AliensAreBastards: [[spoiler:It's revealed in "Web of Venom" that it intentionally crash landed on Earth to signal an AlienInvasion.]]
* ArcVillain: The V-252 itself in season 1 takes center stage in "Sandman", "Symbiotic Relationship" and "Stark Expo" before being separated by Peter and returns five episodes later in "Venom". In season 2, [[spoiler:Venom bonds with Eddie]] for "Dead Man's Party" and "Venom Returns".
* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: Being trapped in a jar for over 3 years and being experimented on has likely made the V-252 not very friendly towards humans. [[spoiler:Venom kidnaps Max Modell, Gwen Stacy and Anya Corazon to get revenge in "Venom Returns" and points out the mistreatment in "Superior".]]
* TheCorrupter: Peter gradually loses his moral compass and starts getting more aggressive and egotistical, the more the Venom Symbiote is bonded.
* EvilSoundsDeep: As per tradition with the character, his voice (as [[spoiler:Eddie-Venom]]) is particularly deep, with an alien filter on top.
* FinalBoss: Venom serves as the final villain of ''Maximum Venom'' and pretty much the entire series overall.
* InterimVillain: In season 2, Venom takes over as the main villain when Doctor Octopus is put in a coma. Once Venom is defeated, Doc Ock returns to BigBad status.
* KnightOfCerebus: Same as it was in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'', his presence often darkens the show's fairly lighthearted tone, [[spoiler:especially after bonding with Eddie]].
* JaggedMouth: When it causes Peter to lash out at Aunt May, it forms a serrated mouth. In all subsequent appearances, it has it on full-time often alongside MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Accompanied by a [[DarkReprise distorted, slightly off-key]] version of Spider-Man's theme.
* MythologyGag: Venom's appearance when bonded to [[spoiler:Flash Thompson matches his first monstrous form from the comics, and Eddie Brock matches Mac Gargan's form in the comics]].
* PowerEchoes: This series marks the first time effects are added to Peter's voice when he wears the V-252 as a costume instead of just limiting it to Venom.
* SignificantDoubleCasting: Venom has the same voice actor as [[spoiler:Flash Thompson in "Venom" and Eddie Brock in "Dead Man's Party" and "Venom Returns"]].
* SpotTheImposter: A villainous example in "Superior" where, while seeking revenge on the web-slinger's rejection, the Venom symbiote clashes with [[spoiler:Superior Spider-Man]] at Midtown High; [[spoiler:its new ability to interface with people's memories leads it to realize that it had not been fighting Peter but Otto Octavius [[{{Sucksessor}} who it dismisses as a fraud]]]].
* SuddenlyVoiced: He has his first speaking role in "Dead Man's Party" when he's bonded to [[spoiler:Eddie]], whereas he didn't speak in his self-titled episode while bonded to Flash.
* TheSymbiote: It is a black, amorphous entity that bonds to a host who it augments at the cost of turning into a vicious monster.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:After having been experimented on, it now has the ability to communicate with its host, and has a much higher resistance toward loud noises, previously the Venom symbiote's most easily exploitable weakness.]]
** He's revealed to have taken another one in "Superior". [[spoiler:Not only does he have much more control over his body, he also ''doesn't need a host''. In addition, he can forcibly bond himself to others in order to use their memories. He's effectively an EldritchAbomination at this point.]]
* TheVoiceless: Unlike most versions, Venom attached to [[spoiler:Flash]] doesn't speak and only hisses and roars. This is averted when Venom speaks due to being attached on [[spoiler:Eddie]].
* {{Yandere}}: If he wasn't before, he is definitely this by "Superior". [[spoiler:When he confronts Peter, he sounds very much like a jilted lover.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: A non-lethal variation. As soon as Venom has evolved past needing a host, it abandons Eddie [[spoiler:and later Curt Connors after escaping from Horizon High]].

A bitter ex-employee of Tony Stark.
----
* CripplingOverspecialization: After taking a key part of Iron Man's armor, he takes control of all the technology at the Stark Expo he's currently in. He's eventually taken down when Spider-Man puts on the V-252, which Ghost can't control due to it being organic, and quickly loses the fight.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/TroyBaker

The host and star of "Kraven's Amazing Hunt" who is hired by Norman to hunt down Spider-Man.
----
* AdaptationalComicRelief: While still an adept hunter, he's fond of constantly plugging his show and at one point gives Peter an ''autograph''.
* ArtificialLimbs: This version has a robotic right arm, unlike his other versions.
* BrokenPedestal: Played for comedy; Miles used to be a big fan of his show, and is understandably disappointed when Kraven decides to go after them.
* CompositeCharacter: This version's based off of his initial appearance in the ''Ultimate Spider-Man'' comics, having a reality TV show, but has the combat proficiency of the 616 counterpart. His appearance also evokes how his second son Alyosha looked when fighting ComicBook/ThePunisher.
* DreadlockWarrior: He has rather [[{{WesternAnimation/Tarzan}} Tarzan-like]] hair as befitting a skilled [[EgomaniacHunter big game hunter]].
* EgomaniacHunter: ''Very'' egomaniacal.
* EyeScream: He has an unexplained scar over his left eye, possibly an occupational hazard.
* HonorBeforeReason: After being humiliated by Peter and Miles, he decides to outright try and kill the two, and almost passes them up on saving his life on the basis he failed, and that he deserved to die.
* LargeHam: One of the most LaughablyEvil villains on the show due to how theatrical he is, unable to resist talking to the camera and advertising products from his show at any given moment. Troy Baker is put to good use here.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He bears a striking resemblance towards Creator/DannyTrejo.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: He's got a slightly more exaggerated, cartoonish appearance than the rest of the cast, most notably his [[FangsAreEvil sharp teeth]].
* WorthyOpponent: In "Spider-Island Part 3", Peter gives him such a good fight that, after losing, Kraven gives an autographed photo.

[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hqdefault_691.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/TrevorDevall

A petty thug who gets an ice gauntlet Peter and Harry created, and becomes a supervillain.
----
* AdaptedOut: The first two versions of Blizzard (Gregor Shapanka and Donald Gill) are unmentioned, making it appear that Randall Macklin is the identity's bearer in this continuity.
* AnIcePerson: The ice gauntlet he gets allows him to create a field of ice around himself, make an icy PoweredArmor, and also freeze over New York.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He's a ''lot'' more dangerous once he starts getting the hang of the gauntlet's abilities.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Given that Hammerhead insisted on treating him like a regular mook, after giving Randall the idea behind being a supervillain, along with Hammerhead's already previously seen emotional manipulation of Keemia, it's hard to not see Randall's actions as at least somewhat karmic.
* MundaneUtility: Inverted. That gauntlet he stole from Peter and Harry? It was created for the purpose of ''refrigerating food'', but became unexpectedly powerful after a gem was put in it, and Randall decided to use it to freeze over New York instead.
* NoOntologicalInertia: The gauntlet alters his body as he uses it, with the right side of his hair being snow white, an icicle growing out of his shoulder, and having clearly blue veins, but having it removed immediately changes him back.
* NotWearingTights: He did not bother wearing a costume after becoming a Supervillain.
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: Blizzard is traditionally an ''ComicBook/IronMan'' villain, but the character's spotlight episode doesn't feature Iron Man in any way, and also ties his origin story to an invention Peter and Harry created. His comic counterpart never even tangled with Spider-Man in the first place.

* AlliterativeName: '''C'''arl '''C'''reel.
* AssimilationBackfire: He falls victim to this twice. He first absorbs Spider-Man's webbing to smother him and gets a face full of web dissolvent causing him pain, then he absorbs lithium ([[KillItWithWater which reacts badly to water]]) and when Spider-Man [[DeadlyDodging tricks him into touching water]] he starts [[BodyHorror buddling then dissolves to liquid]].
* DumbMuscle: He is pretty stupid, seeing as he didn't know some of the stuff Hammerhead was talking about and went onto Screwball's site to complain about Spidey while around Hammerhead.
* EpicFlail: As is tradition for Absorbing Man, he carries a wrecking ball and the chain it's attached to use as a weapon.
* PowerCopying: He can mimic the properties of any substances he touches.
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: Usually a foe of Thor and the Hulk, this version's fighting Spider-Man and encountered Hawkeye at one point.

* TheFaceless: She is never shown outside her armor.
* PoweredArmor
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: Usually an ''ComicBook/IronMan'' villain, this version is fighting Spider-Man. Justified since the series features Iron Man.
* SamusIsAGirl: Due to the shape and size of her armor, Spidey mistakes her for a man in their first encounter.
* UnskilledButStrong: She stole the Crimson Dynamo armor, and Octavius hypothesizes that she only knows how the suit works at least at its most basic, but the suit is still powerful enough to knock around Spider-Man and Octavius.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/YuriLowenthal

A scientist at Osborn Academy trying to find a way to regrow his arm.
----
* AdaptationDeviation: This version's missing his left arm, not the right one like other incarnations.
* AdaptationDyeJob: His comics counterpart and other media versions is usually depicted with short, brown hair while this version's hair is blonde and long.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Downplayed. He's the same TragicVillain as in other incarnations, but works for Oscorp, a company that is distinctly established to be very shady. [[spoiler:It's less downplayed in his return in ''Maximum Venom'', where he's willingly acting as TheMole for Norman Osborn and unleashes the Technovore and frames Grady before proceeding to oust Max from Horizon High by orchestrating a series of disasters to make Max come off as reckless and irresponsible. Admittedly, it's later revealed that he did so under Norman's orders because he was that desperate to cure his Lizard condition, but he seems shockingly gleeful about getting Max fired from Horizon.]]
* AllForNothing: [[spoiler:He spends quite some time doing a number of terrible things for Norman trying to get a full cure for his Lizard condition once he restores his benefactor. In the end, the Dark Goblin decides not to honor their bargain and stabs Connors in the back, rendering all of his hard work for naught.]]
* AlliterativeName: '''C'''urt '''C'''onnors.
* ArtEvolution: [[spoiler:His Lizard form in ''Maximum Venom'' seems to have gone through a major change, such as his scales having a lighter shade of green and his back having a darker shade of the same color.]]
* ArtificialLimbs: This version has a prosthetic arm, just like his [[WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan other animated counterpart]].
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Doc Ock's "cure" ends up enlarging him into a giant ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}''-like monster.
%%* BatmanGambit
* TheBusCameBack: After his singular appearance in Season 1, he returns in ''Maximum Venom'' as a new instructor at Horizon High.
* DemotedToExtra: Most adaptations are Peter Parker's teacher, and often acts as Spidey's scientific advisor. This version has no such connections even after he's a new instructor at Horizon.
* TheDragon: [[spoiler:To Norman Osborn in ''Maximum Venom''.]]
* HateSink: [[spoiler:He seems to have officially wandered into this territory as of "Spider-Man Unmasked". He is ''gleeful'' about Max getting fired from Horizon after the Symbiote invasion. In fact, he pressures Peter into revealing being Spider-Man. Ultimately zig-zagged as it's later revealed that he did everything under Norman's orders because Norman was dangling a supposed cure over his head, but he doesn't seem all too remorseful about the horrible things he did to get it.]]
* HealingFactor: He is able to re-grow his tail.
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler:He outs Max for conducting a dangerous symbiote project within the school, but he later proceeds to create an experiment that's far more deadly.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: A major one to Peter and Max.
* JerkassHasAPoint: His attitude may be uncouth, but Connors has a point that Spider-Man’s presence in Horizon High has attracted a lot of trouble and Max’s projects have been dangerous.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: [[spoiler:After getting away with having Max fired and forcing Peter to unmask as Spider-Man and be removed from school grounds, he learns that there was no way for him to cure his Lizard transformation. Adding to that, his deeds get exposed to the school board who have the position of principal returned to Max.]]
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:During Max's hearing, he repeatedly bad mouths Peter. He even openly reveals the kid's identity as Spider-Man in front of everyone.]]
* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler:For all the things he did to Spider-Man and Max just so he could be cured, Connors is transformed back into the Lizard. He even loses his position as the principal of Horizon High, which is given back to Max.]]
* PermaStubble: He sports a prominent five-o-clock shadow.
* ProfessorGuineaPig: [[spoiler:Subverted]]; when introduced, he initially is presented as being this just like in the comics, but [[spoiler:this is later revealed to be a lie; Obsorn was the one who injected him with the lizard formula and used it to blackmail him]].
* PsychoticSmirk: [[spoiler:He does this twice in "Spider-Man Unmasked": one from when Spider-Man unmasks himself to be Peter Parker; and two when he gains the position of intern principal from Max.]]
* SwissArmyWeapon: His prosthetic arm can hack into control panels, [[spoiler:which he uses to infiltrate Max's secret lab with the artificial symbiote]].
* TragicVillain: As usual, though with a twist. This version is introduced as having the same origin than usual, but it's eventually revealed [[spoiler:''Norman'' was the one who willingly turned him into a lizard, then used the promise of a perfected formula to regrow his arm to blackmail him. Connors still is blatantly not comfortable with the situation, though, and begs Norman to stop. And then he becomes another unwilling host for Venom at the start of Season 3, though he's a lot less sympathetic with just how much seeming pleasure he takes in having Max removed from Horizon High and his general lack of remorse towards the terrible things he has done, even if it was all to cure his condition]].
* TyrantTakesTheHelm: [[spoiler:In "Spider-Man Unmasked", he is given full control of Horizon High by the Head Administrator. While he does allow Peter to continue his studies, he forbids him from stepping on school grounds as Spider-Man. In "Generations", the atmosphere at Horizon High is noticeably darker as he implements stricter rules. Thankfully, he loses that position after Norman's confession is recorded and Max is reinstated at the school.]]

----
* AdaptationalHeroism: Her comic counterpart is typically depicted as Octavius's StalkerWithACrush to the bitter end, mercenary at best, and a full on villain at worst. This version [[spoiler:views Octavius as a BrokenPedestal after her debut episode and undergoes a MistreatmentInducedBetrayal HeelFaceTurn, giving up villainy in the process.]]
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Her crush on Octavius is played for comedy, she behaves like a stereotypical teenager, and due to her inexperience as a villain she ends up making rookie mistakes such as ''confusing her schedules''. Still, she is competent enough to give Spider-Man a hard time, and [[spoiler:almost fights toe-to-toe with a psychic-powered Dr Octopus after turning on him.]].

* ManipulativeBastard: Their manager Gabby Flenkman is a very manipulative woman who is able to convince Jameson that Spider-Man framed the Wake Riders, which adds more fuel to Jameson's dislike of the wall-crawler.

----
* AdaptationalWimp: Unlike either of the comic incarnations who have superpowers, this version has to rely on tech with a low budget, which she frequently ends up having to fix mid-fight against Spider-Man. When she ends up stealing an amplifier Peter created, she's much more in-line with how powerful the comics character can be, with her later appearance in prison suggesting that she's now a metahuman after her first appearance.
* AgeLift: This version's a teenager as opposed to her original incarnation being an adult woman.
* AlliterativeName: '''F'''rancine '''F'''rye.
* AxeCrazy: Not ''quite'' as insane as Jack O'Lantern, but she is quite gleeful about going on rampage and blowing everything up with lightning.

* AdaptationalVillainy: His comics counterpart did what he did because he lost his family in the crossfire of a superhero/supervillain battle, which incited deep resentment in him, and drove him to become the only hero the world would need. [[spoiler:This version hates heroes because his father was a criminal (a fact he is well aware of) who was arrested and locked up thanks to the Avengers.]]

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/AlexDesert

Miles's kind-hearted father. [[spoiler:He is later a supervillain made up of robotic bees who runs an underground gladiator arena.]]
----
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: His comic counterpart (a generally nice guy) detested mutants and other superhumans--though this was understandable as it was the ''ComicBook/UltimateMarvel'' universe where everyone is given the AdaptationalJerkass or even AdaptationalVillainy but he did warm to the Ultimate Spider-Man's alter ego some time [[spoiler:after learning it was his son]]. This version's actually okay with Spidey and his son's alter ego from the start. [[spoiler:Subverted in ''Maximum Venom'', where he dons the Swarm identity to get revenge on the Spider-Men for endangering his neighborhood -- though he's arguably still this as the original Swarm (Fritz von Meyer) was a literal Nazi.]]
* AdaptationalVillainy: [[spoiler:While his original counterpart was a former agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. with some code of morals who turned to a life of crime while undercover, this version turns into a supervillain.]]
* AdaptationalWimp: This depiction is a normal civilian. [[spoiler:This gets subverted later on when he takes on the Swarm identity.]]
* CompositeCharacter: His role as [[spoiler:Swarm]] resembles [[spoiler:Aaron Davis (rather than his comic counterpart) in being a supervillain related to Miles with purple in his costume, with the gold being a bit close to his brother's Iron Spider armor]].
* DarthVaderClone: [[spoiler:As Swarm, he wears dark and menacing armor, however, he is the one who gets more shocked when he discovers his son is the one he's attacking.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: [[spoiler:He is the only member of Osborn's recruits who wasn't informed about either of Team Spider's identities. It is only until Miles unmasks himself that Jefferson realizes the error of his ways.]]

He even ran an underground fight club where he mutated innocent people into more dangerous monsters and forced them to fight to the death against their will.

A group of symbiotes that are the first of their species. Once there were four of them, now only three remain.
----
* AllThereInTheManual: According to a video called "The Secret History of Venom", the Symbiote Sisters were the first of their kind created by a being called Knull.
* AdaptationalBackstoryChange: Scream, Scorn and Mania had completely different origins on the comic books, with the first being one of Venom's children, the second being one of Carnage's offsprings, and the third being a clone of the Venom symbiote. Here, they are the first symbiotes created and were the ones who created Venom, the World-Killer and the Klyntar.
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: They are introduced in the last episode of ''Maximum Venom''.

!!All-Black
----
* BirthDeathJuxtaposition: After her death, [[spoiler:her living abyss was used to create the Venom symbiote and a symbiote-dragon]].
* PosthumousCharacter: She was killed [[spoiler:by an elder alien prior to the series, leaving only her sisters]].

!!Scream
-> '''Voiced by''': Meg Donnelly
----
* AdaptationalBadass: Her comics counterpart would usually be defeated by Venom solidly and she didn't do so hot either whenever she had to fight Spider-Man. This version is shown to be a much higher-ranking symbiote who can overpower and give marching orders to Venom.
* [[AdaptationalNiceGuy Adaptational Nice Girl]]: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-zagged]]. Her comics counterpart or rather her host Donna Diego was mentally unstable and murdered her own symbiote friends and companions. This incarnation, outside of harshly disciplining Venom, is loyal to her sisters and the symbiote cause from the get-go... which in turn has [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt very bad implications for the rest of humanity and Earth]].

!!Scorn

* AdaptationalCurves: This incarnation features a muscular body type, unlike her comic portrayal in which she is a skinny individual.

----
Horizon High's headmaster and founder who recognizes Peter's potential and recruits him in his school.
----
* AlliterativeName: '''M'''ax '''M'''odell.
* CharacterTitle: [[spoiler:He is the "Maximum" in "Maximum Venom".]]
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Inverted. He tends to make a ''lot'' of enemies with the people he makes ties with, and then they turn on him.
* FatalFlaw: Max's biggest problem is that once he gets an idea in his head, he will not be convinced he might be wrong until it blows up in his face. Norman has exploited this a few times to further his own agenda by making both Harry and Otto look bad in Max's eyes and start creating tension between them. Making things worse is that, while he has enough grace to admit when he has been wrong, he tends to swing to the other side of the spectrum from his initial choices rather than learn that his doubling down might not be the best idea.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:It's revealed in "Web of Venom", that early in his life he was caught in an accident and someone got hurt helping him. This trauma stuck with him and became the reason for his obsession with believing V-252 could people, so no one would have to get hurt again.]]
* GloryHound: He's accused of being this by several characters, such as Norman, and "Stark Expo" shows a grain of truth to this sentiment; he ignores Peter's concerns that the V-252 is alive, because he's too concerned with proving it can be on the periodic table. After Spider-Man uses the suit, proving once and for all that it's a symbiotic organism, he's quick to admit he got too obsessed with it, to the point of ignoring his students.
* InkSuitActor: He looks like Fred Tatasciore, with a beard.
* TheMentor: To Peter, being the one who acknowledges his potential and takes him to Horizon High.
* OutOfFocus: He stops showing up as frequently after the Venom arc in Season 1, with more focus going to Peter and his relationship with Harry and the other Spider-Heroes.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: The main authority at Horizon High, and overall a rather reasonable and well-meaning kind of guy.
* RedHerring: [[spoiler:Peter believes he has become the host for the V-252. Turns out he's wrong.]]

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/MatthewMercer
A foreign student who was transformed into Rhino.
----
* AdaptationDyeJob: His comic counterpart and most iterations are usually a brunet before being the Rhino. This version is a redhead.
* AdaptationalHeroism: This version is a pretty fun guy to be around, and is rather nice to the other Horizon students, and also didn't willingly turn into the Rhino. His comics counterpart was already a thug and volunteered to turn into the Rhino.
* AdaptationalIntelligence: His comics counterpart was a DumbMuscle thug while this version is a {{Teen Genius}} before he's the Rhino.
* AdaptationalWimp: This version of Rhino is nowhere near as tough as past incarnations of the character, being little more than a humanoid brute with the mind of an animal. Against Spider-Man, he doesn't even get in a single hit in their short fight.
* BalefulPolymorph: Was forced to being the Rhino.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Becomes a member of the Sinister Five with a mind control device in his neck.]]
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodeNames: An animated example. Aleksei is never referred to as the Rhino at all.
* InNameOnly: Just like Shocker and Clash, this version of Rhino has nothing in common with his comic book counterpart and most versions outside of his name, powers, and nationality.
* NeverTrustATrailer: This version, much like his ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'' counterpart, is a teenager mutated into a more Rhino-like appearance. However, [[https://static3.comicvine.com/uploads/original/4/46646/5813593-6718589659-15403.jpg a poster to promote the show]] features the traditional thug in a Rhino costume.

* ShorterMeansSmarter: He's short but quite brilliant.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: He appears after Doctor Octopus is no longer around and sports a comparable body type, roughly similar quirks (at least during Otto's better moments), and clothes with Doc Ock's classic color scheme. To top it all off, the two even shares the same voice actor.

[[caption-width-right:350:]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/BenDiskin
A student at Midtown High.
----
* AbledInTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:Much like his version in ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'', Flash Thompson still use the full use of his legs when he bonds to the Venom symbiote, unlike his counterpart of the comics who was an adult soldier who lost the use of his legs in battle before being Agent Venom.]]
* AdaptationalIntelligence: '''Heavily''' downplayed compared to the rest of the cast, but this version is at least interested enough in science to build a decent soda volcano and enter a science expo with it, whereas the comics version would have never engaged in any activity of the sort.
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Played with, Flash is most famous for being TheBully to Peter Parker, and rarely does he grow out of this phase in adaptations. Here, he has the same past of bullying Peter but by the time the show takes place he has eased off.
* BoisterousBruiser: Somewhat downplayed compared to his previous incarnation in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'', but only because this version has considerably lesser screen-time at this point then his prior version did especially as Agent Venom. He still manages to showcase this trope in his one focus episode so far, both during [[spoiler:the temporary point when he's bonded to the Venom Symbiote]] and the climax after during the football game. Also, fact that he's mellowed from explicitly bullying Peter outside keeping his "[[HiddenHeartOfGold street cred]]", he's more receptive to being this from the onset compared to his prior incarnation who had to [[CharacterDevelopment grow into being this]].
* CompositeCharacter: He is [[spoiler:Venom's original host instead of Eddie Brock. Although Flash himself did eventually be Venom in the comics.]] His interest is science (and lack of actually being good at it) might've also come from his ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'' counterpart. Also, he sports a similar buzzcut to the one sported by his ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries'' incarnation.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: He has blond hair, but it is unknown if his skin is tan.
* DisqualificationInducedVictory: Parodied; [[spoiler:his soda volcano ends up winning the Stark Expo despite being by far the least impressive project, solely because Ghost happened to wreck all the other inventions]].
* DumbJock: This version plays up the fact he isn't particularly smart. Granted, the fact he's a normal teenager in a show where the large majority of the cast are super-geniuses doesn't help.
* JerkJock: Downplayed; he is portrayed as not particularly smart and a bit cocky, but his bullying days are behind him.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He still occasionally picks on Peter, at one point saying he has to keep up appearances, but a lot of it is mostly lighthearted ribbing, and he's quick to defend Peter after two people try to pick on Peter after tutoring Flash because it saved Midtown.
* MythologyGag: [[spoiler:Venom using him as a host seems to be a reference to his Agent Venom role in both the comics and the previous show.]]
** [[spoiler:His cameo as a Spider-Creature is likely a reference to his Spider-King impersonation.]]
* OddFriendship: He's a slightly rough jock and kind of a meathead but is on amicable terms with the nice, nerdy Peter Parker, even before Peter started tutoring Flash.
* RaceLift: Possibly; he was white in the comic while he is AmbiguouslyBrown here.
* ReformedBully: Flash by the time the story takes place has given up his former bullying ways. Even more so in "Venom"--he started out being hard on Peter due to being a nerd he can solicit help from, but Peter's tutoring saved his life, so he stood up for Peter in the end.
* TookALevelInKindness: Although Flash has nowadays has stopped tormenting Peter, he still gave Peter a hard time when he asked Peter to tutor him in chemistry, as the only thing that mattered to him was being able to play in the football game. Ultimately, what he learned from Peter did save his life and the school, and he has been grateful ever since.
* WisdomFromTheGutter: Flash of all people [[spoiler:manages to get Otto Octavius [[ItMakesSenseInContext (in Peter's body)]] to reconsider the Superior Spider-Man's actions by voicing his disapproval for the Superior Spider-Man's approach to criminals and telling Otto that being a hero is more than just keeping crime rates down]].

----
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her comic counterpart is a blonde while this iteration is a brunette.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Screwball is a villain in the original comic, but this equivalent is introduced as an anti-hero before gradually becoming a full hero over the course of her episode.
* ButHeSoundsHandsome: Being directly asked about Screwball always gets a compliment for Screwball.
* CompositeCharacter: The two are separate characters in the comics, but this version has Screwball as Liz's alter ego.
* ForWantOfANail: She almost became the one with spider powers. Had she not have realized that she was left-handed at the last second before switching places with Peter in ''Origins'', the radioactive spider would've landed on her hand and bitten her instead of Peter.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Liz is popular in Midtown, had one of the highest grades and is a student body president. But after the arrival of schools such as Horizon High and Osborn Academy where students smarter than she attended, she realized that her achievements were no longer enough.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's not the best person ever but she does ultimately want to do good.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A clownish, out-of-sync, theme plays whenever she performs her pranks.
* MotiveDecay: She did her Screwball shtick to prank major corporations that were doing bad things, but upon finding out that pranking Spider-Man gave her a lot of views, she decides to keep making videos about Spider-Man, which she stops after she realizes it put everyone in trouble.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Deconstructed; she used to be a pretty important student in Midtown High, but the arrival of Horizon High and Osborn creating his own school brought multiple {{Teen Genius}}es in the spotlight, leaving her OvershadowedByAwesome. Becoming Screwball partially was a way to make her special again, though she still was trying to do good before MotiveDecay kicked in.

-> '''Voiced by''': Bob Joles
The Daily Bugle's editor-in-chief who has a strong dislike of Spider-Man.
----
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: A minor one, but in the comics, J.J. pretty much hated all masked superheroes with the exception of Captain America. Here, however, he's often calling the Avengers real heroes and his dislike only seems to be directed at Spider-Man, his reason being that the Avengers all made their identities public while Spider-Man didn't.
* AdaptationalJerkass: In the comics, Jameson suspected Peter had some kind of connection to Spider-Man due to him being the only one who could get good pictures of the webslinger, but he didn't hold it against. When Peter "confesses" that he and Spider-Man have a similar connection, Jameson fires him on the spot.
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Combined with AdaptationPersonalityChange, while he's not a saint by any means, he's still a somewhat more reasonable person than his comic book counterpart and most versions.
* BullyingADragon: On at least two occasions when he's been face to face with Spidey, he's attempted to make a "citizen's arrest", in spite of the fact that Spider-Man has SuperStrength and could easily snap him in half if he were really the "menace" Jameson believes him to be.
* {{Hypocrite}}:
** After spending most of time ranting about how Spider-Man is a "menace" who needs to be locked up, "The Day Without Spider-Man" shows him complaining when Spider-Man is a no-show, claiming that he's "more of a menace" when he doesn't show up.
** [[spoiler:Despite hating Spider-Man for not being a "real hero", when the Superior Spider-Man shows up at his office and makes his AntiHero ways clear, Jameson actually ''approves'' of it.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: As usual in most incarnations. This version takes it up a notch by flat-out bullying some of his employees [[spoiler:and outright fires Peter believing he's connected to Spider-Man without hearing the boy out]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: It's not too noticeable, but he has his moments. He's actually somewhat cordial with Peter when he proves his worth when getting good footage of Spider-Man, and is less prone to yelling at him than with Eddie Brock.
* LargeHam: He's not over the top for nothing.
* MeanBoss: At the end of the day, he will not consider the opinions of any of his employees, and he's definitely dismissive of Peter Parker speaking of Spider-Man in a good light. When Peter complains about how he's not being truthful, Jameson tells him to get on board or get out.
* NeverMyFault: He refuses to admit that he had a part in Eddie's transformation into Venom, even though both Spider-Man and Venom rightfully tell him otherwise.
* NoIndoorVoice: Communicates by shouting, both on TV and to his employees.
* UngratefulBastard: Just like Harry in season 1, he does not show appreciation towards Spider-Man for saving him from Venom and only bashes him further.

[[folder:Eddie Brock]]
!!Edward "Eddie" Brock
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eddie_brock.JPG]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Ben Pronsky
A photographer for the ''Daily Bugle'' who has had a hard time getting footage of Spider-Man.
----
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Eddie Brock is just a down-on-his-luck and less-than-competent photographer that's forced to endure a lot of undeserved crap from [[BadBoss J. Jonah Jameson]], and Peter Parker (while having sympathetic reasons for doing so) ''is'' taking Eddie's job from him. This gives Eddie more understandable reasons to hate him compared where his original counterpart wrote a series of sensationalist interviews with a supposed serial killer for weeks before actually going to the authorities and hates Spidey for catching the real serial killer and causing him to lose his reputation and job.
* DestinedBystander: His early appearances are unvoiced and he doesn't get much focus until Peter begins working at the Daily Bugle and starts inadvertently scooping him on Spider-Man stories. Of course by this point, the Venom symbiote has long been established.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He makes an unvoiced appearance early in Season 2, trying to record Spider-Man.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Implied. When the Venom Symbiote begins to come off of him, he begs it not to leave because he doesn't want to be "nothing".
* NeverMyFault: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] compared to the original comics version; this version does show an inability to acknowledge his own flaws, such as lacking any real talent as a photographer, being sleazy in his day-to-day maintenance and hygiene, or being something of an all-around creep. On the other hand, Eddie does have a dedicated work ethic and never commits any form of journalistic fraud. Meanwhile Peter (for all his understandable reasons for doing so) ''is'' using fraudulent pictures to take Eddie's job from him, and Jameson ''does'' treat him like garbage in a way Eddie doesn't deserve. That being said, Eddie to some degree is aware of how others perceive him and mid-VillainousBreakdown admits he feels like nothing without the Venom Symbiote.
* TheResenter: He hates Peter for [[VillainHasAPoint stealing his job]]. [[spoiler:This hatred allows the Venom symbiote to sympathize with him and the two to bond.]]
* StalkerWithoutACrush: Obviously stalks Spider-Man in an attempt to get good photos of the web-slinger, but a far more disturbing case happens with Peter; after [[spoiler:bonding with the Venom symbiote]], he breaks into Peter's room and is found creepily searching through Peter's personal goods and family photos, commenting how he can see Peter's whole life has gone so well.
* VillainHasAPoint: Eddie may not be as good a photographer as he thinks he is, but Peter ''is'' cheating him out of his job with glorified selfies, wittingly or not. [[/folder]]

* AlliterativeName: '''S'''ilver '''S'''ablinova.
* BadassNormal: She seems to be just a normal human with enhanced equipment, yet can fight decently against the super-powered Spider-Man.
* LightIsNotGood: Her white hair and light clothing is not much telling of her.
* RealityEnsues: Despite being a rather efficient BadassNormal, she still is a regular human with no apparent enhancement.

* OutOfFocus: Doesn't actually appear all that much in this version, especially compared to Harry, Miles, Anya and Gwen; in fact, she's absent from the majority of episodes.

Peter's deceased uncle.
----
* DeathByOriginStory: Naturally, being part of a Franchise/SpiderMan series, his death is required to push Peter into using these great powers responsibly.
* MoralityChain: [[spoiler:A bizarre example in that he isn't alive yet still plays the role. Otto admits that Peter's memories of Uncle Ben that he obtained during the FreakyFridayFlip are what are keeping Otto from slipping back into evil.]]
* NiceGuy: Flashbacks show him as being supportive of Peter.
* OutOfFocus: Oddly enough, the shorts before the series didn't feature him with an onscreen presence in any way. While the final short covers his death due to Peter's indirect actions, he still doesn't show up at all barring a picture. The series circumvents this a bit by occasionally showing him in flashbacks, and he's mentioned every now and then.

* AlliterativeName: '''C'''layton '''C'''ole.
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodeNames: An animated example. Just like with Herman, Clayton is never referred to as Clash and he only uses the code name for his invention.
* InNameOnly: Just like Shocker in this series, this version of Clayton has nothing in common with his comic book counterpart outside of his name, his general appearance, and his invention. (Since he did create his own sound powers same as his comic counterpart, he's probably more similar than other examples of this Trope in this series, but he's still portrayed a lot more emotionally well-off here [[IneffectualLoner than]] [[LonersAreFreaks in his]] [[IJustWantToBeSpecial comic]] [[TookALevelInJerkass debut]].)

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/TravisWillingham
----
* AdaptationalHeroism: This version is similar to his [[Film/SpiderMan3 film counterpart]], being a loving father for his daughter. He's also willing to use his powers for good from the start instead of using them for committing crimes in order to make ends meet.
* AdaptationalWimp: This version is not ''nearly'' as powerful as his comics counterpart and other versions.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: By the time he goes to rescue Keemia, his daughter's already gotten greater control of their powers than he has, and [[CurbStompBattle utterly trounces him]], albeit in part because he's unwilling to fight back.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:Seemingly the case in his debut episode.]]
* DecompositeCharacter: He appears to be primarily based on his more heroic takes, with his much more criminal traits transplanted to his daughter.

----
* CanonForeigner: He doesn't have any counterpart in the comics.
* ExorcistHead: He turns his head 360 degrees like what normal owls do. Even Spider-Man is freaked out by this.
* {{Expy}}: Though likely unintentional, his origin as a boy/teenager who was mutated into a bird-like form by a mad scientist harks very much to that of the second Falcon (Joaquin Torres) introduced in ''ComicBook/NickSpencersCaptainAmerica''. Nocturnal is a bit more [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman noticeably transformed than Falcon is]], though, and doesn't have nearly the same network of support looking after him.
** Given his name, he may also act as a DistaffCounterpart to Angela Cairn/Nocturne, a police officer who was also mutated into a being with a bat-like form by a mad scientist, in this case Baron Zemo.
* HeelFaceTurn: Somewhat; while he's likely still scrounging other people's food in the woods and generally being reclusive, he doesn't have any ill will toward Spider-Man.
* TragicMonster: He was transformed from a lab accident that forced him to live out in the woods.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: In Season 2, she's one of the few people who earnestly believes Spider-Man is actually good for New York (and is clearly hesitant to help aid Jameson's witch hunt), and even tells him to call her if there's any significant information he's found in regards to the mastermind who wants to hunt Spider-Man down. While she does briefly come into conflict with Spider-Man due to some incriminating circumstances, to the point of having to take him to prison, [[spoiler:after Octavius proves he's still around, she's very quick to cooperate with Spider-Man afterward.

* CainAndAbel: Maria is jealous of Anya and tries to kill her stepsister. [[spoiler:Subverted when it's actually the Chameleon impersonating her.]]
* CanonForeigner: She was created exclusively for this series, as her sister didn't have any siblings in the comics.
* CompositeCharacter: She is an amalgamation of minor characters in the comics, visually resembling Lynn (Anya's childhood friend) and [[spoiler:her impersonator]] acted similar to Nina Smith (Anya's armor-equipped antagonist-esque acquaintance).

* TheMentor: He implies at the end of the episode that he would like to be this for Spider-Man the same way Max Modell is to Peter Parker.
* SecretKeeper: While not outright stated, it's strongly implied by the end of the episode that he has deduced Peter's identity based on details connecting the two (in particular their size and the fact Peter has a hand injury he inflicted on Spider-Man earlier).
** If he didn't figure it out then, then he certainly is in the know after he, Natasha, and Kamala detain [[spoiler:Superior]] Spider-Man. He outright says Peter's name while talking to the other two Avengers.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/KathreenKhavari

A member of the Avengers sent by Iron Man to investigate a boarding school after its students start displaying out-of-control super powers, but is forced to team up with Spider-Man.
----
* AdaptationalPersonalityChange: Kamala is more focused on the task and doesn't fangirl over meeting Spider-Man like she does in the comics.
** JustifiedTrope: In the comics, Peter is an experienced hero and Kamala's a rookie. In this series, Kamala is the more experienced one.
* AlliterativeName: '''K'''amala '''K'''han.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Kamala is constantly being compared to Thor, Captain America, and the rest of her Avengers teammates and she implies her lack of choosing decisions, hence her desire to prove her competence to Iron Man.
* DareToBeBadass: She’s really excited about participating in her first solo mission undercover to stop, A.I.M. hence her initial intolerance to Spider-Man intruding.
* EasilyForgiven: After the whole Superior Spider-Man incident, she's angry with Peter over his supposed attitude. When Peter confesses what happens, she considers it water under the bridge. "Hello?! I'm an Avenger! We've seen way weirder stuff than that."
* ExperiencedProtagonist: In contrast to Peter, she’s been working with the Avengers for a period of time, and has more recognition as a hero than Spider-Man.
* FakeRelationship: Non-kissing example, Kamala takes off her identity and convinces Peter to do so, tricking the guards by hugging him to pass off the two being a couple.
* FireForgedFriends: Through the course of foiling Scientist Supreme and AIM with Peter’s help, she’s slowly grown to accept him as an ally and a friend, even attempting to improve his reputation with the press.
* RubberMan: The same as her [[WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble other incarnation]].
* SecretKeeper: She is one of the few characters who know Peter's secret identity as Spider-Man.
* SeenItAll: When Spider-Man explains "his" behavior as Superior Spider-Man as it actually being Otto Octavius in his body, she has no problem believing it because, as an Avenger, she's "seen way weirder stuff than that."
* ShipTease: With Peter; while she made them look like a couple to avoid suspicion while on a mission, one can't help how cute they look together.
* SizeShifter: As per her canon comics counterpart, she can adjust the shape and size of her body parts, mostly preferring to adjust her arms for stronger striking power or legs for improved mobility.

* InsufferableGenius: He won't hesitate to mention that he's the 7th smartest person on Earth.

[[index]]
* AdaptationDyeJob: Peter is usually portrayed with having either brown, blue, or hazel eyes in the comics and other versions. Here, his eyes are green.
* AdaptationalBadass:
** Peter's physical strength has gotten an upgrade from most incarnations where he's 15 years old. He's strong, but you wouldn't think he could catch a falling helicopter or a careening van as a teen, something he could do in his adult years. This version doesn't make that feat look hard at all. Then there's also the fact that he's strong and fast enough to create a miniature cyclone simply by swinging a heavy object around him in a circle.
** Same goes for the enhancement provided by the Venom Symbiote. Previous versions ''did'' enhance his strength, but not to the point his punch would generate a ''shockwave'' and cause an ElementalShapeshifter to back down.
* AdorablyPrecociousChild: His interest in the sciences goes way back, to the point that he'd rather play with a chemistry set than go outside and hang out with other kids his age when he was younger.
* AlliterativeName: '''P'''eter '''P'''arker.
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: In case ''Spider''-Man didn't tip it off for you.
* TheApprentice: Peter becomes one to Max Modell so that he can pay off his tuition [[spoiler:until Otto's will helps him]].
* AscendedFanboy: A fan of Superheroes who became one himself.
* BadassAdorable: A cute fifteen-year-old science geek who fights supervillains.
* BadassBookworm: He not only solved an incredibly complex equation that served as an admittance test to an exclusive science school, he repurposed it to help fight a fire that the VillainOfTheWeek had caused.
* BerserkButton: "Spider-Man on Ice" reveals that Peter despises the idea that inventions could be weaponized, calling Harry out for turning their thermal gauntlet into a sword.
* BetaOutfit: [[https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/horizonhigh/images/9/91/HHPO_001381.png/revision/latest?cb=20190925095703 His original costume is a hoodie with goggles and a sweatpants]] similar to the original outfit in the ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse''.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's jovial, wise-cracking, and friendly most of the time. You ''really'' don't want him angry though.
* BigNo: Let's one out when Flint Marko AKA Sandman is seemingly killed by his daughter.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:He is made into an UnwittingPawn of Doctor Octopus via mind control in "The Hobgoblin, Part 1". Thankfully, Harry is able to snap him out of it.]]
* BrainyBrunette: Brown-haired and a TeenGenius.
* ClothingDamage: His original costume gets continually ripped up as he's forced to repair it. He finally ditches it in favor of his high-tech version he made in his lab while facing the first Spider-Slayer.
* ComesGreatResponsibility: Well, it is ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' after all. Uncle Ben framed it as a pseudo-math equation in this continuity.
* CompositeCharacter: He is a teenage version of the Dan Slott era Peter Parker, is a fan of the older heroes just like the MCU and Ultimate cartoon versions and [[spoiler:he's the Sinister Six's unwilling sixth member like in the Ultimate Comics]].
* CoolLoser: As usual. Despite being chipper, friendly, funny, and knowledgeable, he's still so much of a nerd that Liz Allan rolls her eyes and sighs at the thought of being his tour chaperone.
* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: As Peter wears the V-252, he becomes much more uncooperative and aggressive as the suit takes greater control over him. Even after he takes off the suit and very briefly has to put it on again to save the day in "Stark Expo", he briefly considers just keeping it on forever before Iron Man and Max talk him out of it.
* GeekPhysique: Unlike most versions of the character, Peter didn't gain much of an increase in muscle mass or tone from his mutation. He still weighs a paltry 97 pounds even though he stands at [=5'10''=].
* HeroWithBadPublicity: He enters this territory in season 2 when J. Jonah Jameson shows up, complaining about the collateral damage in his wake.
* IHaveManyNames: Peter Parker, Spider-Man, Spidey, [[spoiler:Stealth Spider]], [[spoiler:Robo-Spider]].
* IndyPloy: Sometimes, most notably when he dives out a window to save Max while not actually being sure whether or not his new parachute web function actually worked or not.
* IShallTauntYou: Come on, it wouldn't be Spider-Man without this.
* ItBeganWithATwistOfFate: His mutation arose after being bitten by an escaped radioactive spider while attending Oscorp's demonstration. Anyone could have gotten spider powers if Harry hadn't volunteered him for the job.
* KidHero: Barely meets the criteria as a 15-year old.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Often accompanied by a loud, heroic orchestral piece as he engages his enemies.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: He's not filled in about [[spoiler:what Otto did while their minds were swapped (i.e. quitting Horizon High, tarnishing his reputation with un-Peter-like behavior, getting Jameson's approval as Spider-Man, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and encouraging Aunt May to eat healthier]])]], leaving him baffled until Miles explains what happened.
* TheMentor: Becomes this, as both Peter and Spider-Man, to Miles after he gets his powers. Peter does note that he has all of three months' experience, and isn't exactly a veteran. Miles counters that he needs a mentor with his powers, which narrows his options down to... Peter.
--> '''Peter:''' I'm...flattered?
* MotorMouth: As both Peter and Spider-Man, he ''never'' shuts up.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: His proportionate Spider-Strength allows him to lift and punch well above what his wiry frame would suggest. According to Iron Man, Pete only weighs 97 pounds, which would be considered very underweight for a boy his age. It doesn't stop him from catching cars and helicopters.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Outside of the "My God" part, Peter literally says this upon realizing that Ben's killer was the guy he let get away earlier.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Peter is not only gifted in every kind of physical science, but is also a skilled enough computer programmer to design his upgraded costume and program all sorts of functions, sensors, and scanners into it.
* RelativeButton: Don't disrespect Uncle Ben, as [[WesternAnimation/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy2015 Rocket Raccoon]] found out the hard way.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: He doesn't get brain freeze. He gets sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia. Though this aspect is greatly toned down midway through season 1 and rarely shows up for the rest of the show.
* ShipTease: He [[LuminescentBlush lights up like a fire hydrant]] when he finally sees Mary Jane in-person during ''Maximum Venom''.
* SuperSoldier: Unlike most versions of Spider-Man, [[spoiler:Raymond Warren intentionally created the genetically modified spider that bit Peter to create an army of spider-powered super soldiers. Peter just happened to be in the right place at the right time after one of them escaped]].
* TechnoBabble: With the show's emphasis on science, this version engages in this more than other incarnations.
* TeenGenius: Peter is exceptionally gifted in math and science, as best seen when he quickly neutralized a haywire experiment involving vibranium by pouring the corresponding materials into the machine in the correct order. However, while the show goes out of its way to emphasize this, it's also downplayed by the fact that he goes to a school for geniuses, meaning that he comes across as a NormalFishInATinyPond at times.
* YoungerAndHipper: While Peter canonically started his superhero career as a teenager, this version borrows from ComicBook/DanSlottSpiderMan, including Horizon Labs being reimagined as a special high school he gets accepted into opposed to a lab he works at as an adult and the updated costume being a modified version of the Spider-Armor Mk IV from ''ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' rather than a normal cloth costume.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/NadjiJeter
----
* AdaptationalBadass: His venom blast from the comics goes from FingerpokeOfDoom to electrical energy blast that can total two giant robots to instant submission.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Since the context in which he began as Spider-Man from ''ComicBook/UltimateMarvel'' is no longer there (i.e. [[spoiler:he became Spider-Man after Ultimate Peter temporarily died]], and indeed becomes Spider-Man while Peter is still a teenager, Miles's show personality has changed, going from being nervous and reluctant about being a LegacyCharacter to being a superhero who is a ThrillSeeker and goofball who eventually mellows under Spider-Man's mentorship.
** Even beyond the aforementioned context of how he became Spider-Man, Miles is canonically an introvert, albeit a more realistic version who's functional, as opposed to the more typical [[LonersAreFreaks Hollywood]] [[IneffectualLoner versions]]. It is an occasional point of contention that this is changed DependingOnTheWriter, with the implication that healthy extroverts are easier/more familiar to write than healthy introverts. This show completely upends this part of Miles' character, making him a full-on extroverted person, once again, regardless of the context of how he becomes Spider-Man.
* AdaptationalIntelligence: While Miles is bright and canonically a student at a STEM school, in the comics he got there through a lottery. Here, he's shown to have built a security robot.
* AgeLift: Miles Morales is 15 at the time Spider-Man makes his debut rather than 12/13. Additionally, he's 15 around the same time Peter is instead of being younger than Peter.
* AlliterativeName: '''M'''iles '''M'''orales.
* BadassBookworm: A given since Horizon is a genius school. Miles designed a working robot.
* CannotKeepASecret: Blurts his secret identity to Peter, Anya, and Gwen within minutes of finishing his costume, and the only reason he didn't tell ''more'' people is because Peter convinced him to keep it a secret.
** He gets better after absentmindedly revealing where he lives on the Evening News and endangering his neighborhood and his father.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Once he obtains his spider powers, the lessons Peter tries to instill into him about secrets, power, and responsibility go over his head [[spoiler:until the Smythes send their respective Spider Slayers to capture him]].
* DarkIsNotEvil: His costume is black and red and he can use red lightning, but he is still one of the heroes.
* HowDoIShootWeb: Literally until he learned that they were tech based.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Literally when he saves Spider-Man.
* {{Keet}}: Once he gains his super-powers, he gets really excitable and eager to use them.
* KidAppealCharacter: He's usually the first one to crack a joke in most situations, is more excitable than Peter in more mundane ways, might even be slightly younger than him, along with being relatively new to superheroics.
* OutOfFocus: Tends to come off as this, likely due to the above-mentioned Trope. It gets even more frustrating when he does nothing to help Peter during the "Bring on the Bad Guys" arc.
* SecretPublicIdentity: He's never adopted his own superhero alias and Peter calls him "Miles" even when they're in the middle of fighting villains.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:In "Kraven's Big Hunt", he finds out Peter's secret identity as Spider-Man and promises not to tell anyone at school.]]
* StoryBreakerPower: Due to the fact that most of the villains Spider-Man faces in this series wear PoweredArmor or use heavily electronic weaponry, this trope is likely why Miles sporadically does any heroing in the series; his powers, which can short out electrical devices, would make capturing a number of these tech-based villains too easy.

----
* AgeLift: Played with as while she's a teenager like her comics counterpart, comics Anya was introduced after Peter had finished college and was thus older than her. Here, they're the same age.
* AmbiguouslyBi: While rather heat of the moment, she clearly says to Miles during the Spider Island arc that she could kiss him for the good job he did. At the same time, she's shown to have a ''very'' special connection to Gwen in said arc.
* BadassBookworm: A given since Horizon is a genius school. She designed a scrambler that cuts the power to any electronic equipment.
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:Subverted. Anya is the only person to have kept her spider powers after Spider Island.]]
* CuteBruiser: She won't hesitate to get into a physical fight if there's danger around.
* DarkIsNotEvil: [[spoiler:Her Spider-Girl has the same motif and colors as the Black Suit/Venom and is one of the heroes.]]
* {{Foil}}: She serves as one to Gwen Stacy. Compared to Gwen, who becomes more open hearted, and is more of herself out the costume than in it (on top of being more emotionally vulnerable), she tends to be more cynical, has some skewed priorities, yet is also shown to be more level headed when it comes to heroics, with her ego downplayed.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She may be stern and ambition driven, but she won't hesitate to leap into action to help others.
* HowDoIShotWeb: Literally; out of all the protagonists, she is by far the one who has the most trouble getting used to her spider-power when she gets them, and is freaked out by it.
* NeverTrustATrailer: Promotional materials featured her in a version of her Spider-Girl costume with inverted colors on the torso (a black spider on a white torso). Not only does she wear a more-accurately colored costume (white spider on a black torso), but she didn't even don the Spider-Girl identity until season 2.
* NotSoAboveItAll: In "Dead Man's Party", she joins Miles in doing the robot.
* SecretKeeper: She and Gwen know Miles's secret identity, but not Peter's.
* SkewedPriorities: She chews out Peter for messing with her device, seemingly not knowing that Midtown High would've been destroyed by her invention had he not stopped it.
* SociallyAwkwardHero: To a degree. She was shown to be very against the school dance that Peter accidentally came up with in "Party Animals" and was absent for the party in "Halloween Moon" (Miles at least has the excuse of possible training). She seems to have grown out of it in season 2, judging by her willingly attending a Ross Caliban concert and going to Peter's party.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl:
[[Characters/MarvelsSpiderManTheSpiders The Tomboy to Gwen's Girly Girl.

* WhatTheHellHero: She calls Harry out for [[UngratefulBastard not being appreciative of Spider-Man saving his life]] from a [[KillerRobot Spider Slayer]].

[[Characters/MarvelsSpiderManAntagonists Antagonists]]
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Whereas most Spiders tend to be [[HeroWithBadPublicity Heroes With Bad Publicity]], Gwen, operating without a mask or secret identity, has quickly become the darling of Manhattan as Spider-Gwen.
* AcademicAlphaBitch: Known as "the Princess of Preparation" at school, she is very smart and she likes to flaunt it with little false modesty. This does reflect parts of Gwen's early appearances but differs in both kind and degree[[note]]EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Gwen was snobbish because she was a beauty queen and a kind of UptownGirl[[/note]]. Becomes a much more [[LovableAlphaBitch lovable type]] after she bonds with Peter following her uncle's arrest.
* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: Even after becoming a more humble person than she was at the start, Gwen can't help but relapse into being somewhat cocky when she first becomes Spider-Gwen, a hero with no secret identity, and [[HundredPercentAdorationRating everyone promptly adores her for it]].
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Like most adaptations of Gwen Stacy, her personality has no resemblance to her original comics appearance (beyond the reworked variant on her initial snobbishness as stated above) -- she's especially different from the comics' Spider-Gwen who's an underdog musician -- and she's more or less an original character who just so happens to be named Gwen Stacy.
* BrokenPedestal: Her uncle, [[spoiler:Raymond Warren]], was her mentor who inspired her to get into science and she is disappointed when he is revealed to be a super-villain.
* CharacterDevelopment: At the start, Gwen thinks Spider-Man is a bungler who causes more problems than he solves. Her opinion of him improves over the course of the first season, and by the time of "Spider Island", she is passionately defending him from an angry Harry, saying that Spider-Man isn't a bad guy and only ever tries to do the right thing. She also grows a closer bond with Peter Parker, due to how much he's influenced and supported her.
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: She isn't a big fan of Spidey at the start, and points out what he could have done better any time he saves the day.
* CompositeCharacter: She has the look and fashion of her mainstream depiction, the scientific intelligence of the ''Amazing Spider-Man'' films (here taken to genius levels), and the powers of Spider-Gwen. When she's repowered she gains the power to glide, much like Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman.
* ADayInTheLimelight: She has a major role in the season 2 episode "The Day Without Spider-Man".
* {{Foil}}: To Anya Corazon. While Anya has some skewed priorities and is more comfortable with heroics, Gwen is the opposite. She's very altruistic when out of costume, but when it comes to major tragedies and being in costume, she shows more emotional vulnerability.
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Or rather Masks Are Hardly Heroic. While Gwen wears her Spider-Gwen costume in the first season like in the comics, she is lacking the mask. Averted in the second season.
* HourglassPlot: Her first appearance has her criticizing Spider-Man ever chance she got. After she gets spider powers of her own, Spider-Man is the one who points out all her faults. The only difference is that [[MoralMyopia she cheekily waves off his comments]].
* LittleMissSnarker: Frequently snarks at people, whether she likes them or not. She even does it to ''the Hulk''.
* LovesMyAlterEgo: In a reverse on the usual trope, it's Peter that Gwen is nice to and appreciates. Conversely, she doesn't seem to care too much for Spider-Man at first.
* NiceGirl: She eventually becomes this after "Party Animals". Snarky and no nonsense that she is, she's also the most willing to help others.
* SecretKeeper: She and Anya know Miles's secret identity, but not Peter's.
** [[spoiler:She's also the only one who knows about Anya keeping her powers from Spider-Island.]]
* SparedByTheAdaptation: This version of Gwen Stacy is not imported from an alternate universe. Rather, she is alive in this continuity and becomes Spider-Gwen. And given the shows target demographic, an adaptation of ComicBook/TheNightGwenStacyDied is unlikely.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Girly Girl to Anya's Tomboy.
* TookALevelInBadass: From Gwen to Spider-Gwen.
* TookALevelInKindness: Her AcademicAlphaBitch side only really shows up in her first episode; the following ones, particularly following "Party Animals", downplay it considerably, depicting her as still somewhat academic, pretty nice to Peter and not particularly hostile to Spider-Man after he helps save her from her uncle. That said, she still [[LittleMissSnarker maintains a snarky side]].
* WhatTheHellHero: And boy does she bring down Harry ''hard'' during the "Spider-Island" arc. She tells Harry to knock it off with his treatment of Spider-Man, telling him Spider-Man has been trying his hardest to make things right, did his best to save his father, ''and'' tells him that his sentiment towards ''any'' spider-person is completely baseless and misguided.
* YouDontLookLikeYou: Outside of being a Caucasian female with blonde hair and blue eyes, she does not visually resemble her comic book counterpart and other versions that much, mainly through having a different hairstyle and lacking her iconic headband. Her Spider-Gwen costume in Season 1 lacks the mask. She does get a wardrobe upgrade in Season 2, wearing a blue shirt instead of a pink one, and wearing her hair in a ponytail instead of a bun and finally wears a mask for her super alter ego.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/RobbieDaymond, Creator/ScottMenville
----
* AdaptationDyeJob: His costume is primarily navy blue in place of the blacks of his comic costume. Averted later on as his costume gradually darkens to his comic costume's shade of black coinciding with him slipping into KnightTemplar territory.
* AgeLift: While Peter was an adult when Otto took over Spider-Man's body in the comics, here Peter is a teenager. Otto himself is also significantly younger than his comic counterpart.
* AntiHero: Through Peter's memories, Otto finally understands the value of altruism. Despite now desiring to become a hero and understanding WithGreatPowerComesGreatResponsibility, he still hasn't lost his old ruthlessness or his ego for that matter. It's demonstrated rather brutally in "Critical Update" when he outright tries to kill Sand Girl for daring to oppose him only to be stopped by Miles. He was also willing to let an innocent man dangle on the edge of a scaffolding in order to keep Miles off his back.
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: In "Cloak and Dagger", he admits that the eponymous duo suffered Tiberius Stone's horrific experiments, and that Stone will be made to pay for these crimes, but adds that they are also guilty of criminal activities, and he will bring the two down too.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: Well, more like Black Eyes of Anti-Heroism. His costume's eyes are black, in contrast to Peter, Miles, Anya and Gwen's white.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: As a consequence of retaining Peter's memories including the death of Uncle Ben, he finds himself incapable of resisting the urge to help those in need even when it inconveniences him. Of course, he proves to be a lot more flexible with this newfound urge, considering he willingly passed by a man dangling on a scaffolding just because he knew Miles would be following behind him and intervene on his behalf.
* CompositeCharacter: In-universe, he is Otto Octavius's mind in Spider-Man's body. His spider-symbol also closely resembles the Iron Spider suit in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse.
* DidNotSeeThatComing: He admits to himself that he miscalculated how much Peter's residual memories would end up affecting him.
* FreakyFridayFlip: Otto in Peter Spider-Man's body. However, he still does retain at least some of Peter's memories, which are what drive him to be a hero in the first place.
* GoodFeelsGood: His reaction when people thank him for saving their lives. It seems that this is a genuinely foreign feeling for him.
* HazyFeelTurn: Otto initially took over Peter's body with the intent of using Spider-Man's powers for conquest. Peter's memories end up teaching him the value of heroism, forcing him out of his previous villainous mindset. However, this leads him to sliding into KnightTemplar territory instead. [[spoiler:He cements his turn to good in "Superior" by agreeing to swap back with Peter so Peter can face Venom.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:He swaps back with Peter so that Peter can successfully deal with Venom, even though this means going back into a dying mechanical body.]]
* InsufferableGenius: He retains his incredibly high opinion on his intelligence and is more than willing to lord over others with it.
* KnightTemplar: He does seem to earnestly want to do good. Unfortunately, "Critical Update" shows that he's more than willing to impose his views on how the world should work onto those he deems his opposition.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: The promotional material for season 2's second half doesn't even bother to hide his origin.
* LighterAndSofter: Barring an interrupted attempt to shatter Keemia Marko after turning into glass, [=SpOck=] doesn't murder anyone in this adaptation.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:His aggressive takedown of every major supervillain in New York creates a power vacuum that allows the much more dangerous and unified Goblin Nation to emerge.]]
* NotHimself: Otto doesn't even ''try'' to act like Peter.
[[Characters/MarvelsSpiderManOtherCharacters Other characters quickly notice this, though they're in the dark as to the sudden shift in Peter's personality.
* NotHisSled: [[spoiler:Unlike the comics version who completely erased himself to allow Peter's restoration and thus losing out on his CharacterDevelopment, Peter ends up saving Otto and returns him to his body, hopefully with his CharacterDevelopment intact.]]
* TerrorHero: Upon taking up the Superior Spider-Man mantle, Otto conducts himself more like a slasher villain, sticking to the shadows and brutally picking off mooks one by one.
* UngratefulBastard:
** Shows no gratitude whatsoever when Miles saves him from Sandgirl's trap in "Critical Update".
** He does the same after [[spoiler:Peter saves him from Stone]].
* VoicesAreMental: Averted. Though Scott Menville voices his internal monologues, his speaking voice is Robbie Draymond albeit with Otto's distinct cadence and accent.
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: In his whole life, no one has liked Otto, much less loved him. The warmth and grief in Peter's memories of Uncle Ben are so foreign that they successfully overwhelm him in just a few hours.

[[caption-width-right:208:]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/MaxMittelman
Peter's best friend and Norman's son.
----
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: As in the Ultimate, ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' and film versions, Harry Osborn is more good looking here as opposed to his counterparts' nebbish look in the original comics, ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan''. [[spoiler:When we see him in civies in ''Maximum Venom'', he's borderline {{Hunk}} territory, especially with his more casual, sporty clothing choices.]]
* AdaptationDyeJob: While most depictions are traditionally depicted as brown or red-haired, this version's hair is black.
* AdaptationalHeroism: [[spoiler:As the Hobgoblin. While his Ultimate counterpart was a TragicVillain, this version is willing to be a hero, and is still one by ''Maximum Venom''.]]
* AdaptationalIntelligence: Not that his comic counterpart was dumb to begin with but Harry's just as enthusiastic about science as Peter Parker is and was admitted into Horizon High, a high school "for geniuses" while Peter didn't at the time. [[spoiler:He also created most of the Goblin technology he uses as the Hobgoblin himself.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:In "Generations", he shows up just in the nick of time to save Spider-Man from the Dark Goblin once he has the former cornered.]]
* BrokenPedestal: [[spoiler:He is very heartbroken to learn that Norman has been conspiring against Spider-Man all along, realizing that Peter's claims of Norman getting Harry suspended from Horizon High on purpose were true.]]
* TheBusCameBack: After being PutOnABus, Harry finally returns in the "Goblin War" arc.
** Harry's PutOnABus again after that and he once again returns in time for the climax of ''Maximum Venom''.
* CharacterDevelopment:
** He's the most vocal in his distrust of Spider-Man in Season 1 despite reluctantly working with Spider-Man. It gets worse when the Jackal attacks Oscorp, making him think the two are working together. It takes the "Spider-Island" arc where [[spoiler:Spider-Gwen calls him out for his bias and Peter revealing being Spider-Man]] that he gets over his feelings of betrayal, puts much more faith in Spider-Man, and stops trying to justify why Spider-Man could be evil.
** In Season 1, he tries to get some form of appreciation from Norman Osborn, unaware that his father is manipulating him, [[spoiler:but loses respect for Norman after Season 1's finale. By Season 3, he confronts his father trying once again to turn him against Peter to which Harry says that he has ''no'' interest in trying to get his father's approval anymore, even saying that Norman [[YoureNotMyFather was no father to him]].]]
* CoolSword: Creates one that forms a blade out of ''fire'', getting even cooler as the show progresses and Harry gains more skill in wielding the weapon.
* CompositeCharacter: He is an amalgamation of his comic counterpart and [[spoiler:Phil Urich]]. Like his various counterparts (original, Ultimate, and first two film series), Harry is Peter's and Gwen's friend and Norman's son. [[spoiler:Phil's post-FaceHeelTurn is also fused into his character as his look evokes a more spiky black hair and he knows Anya.]]
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Outside of the Spider heroes, he gets the most screen-time, plot importance, and characterization in Season 1 out of Peter's circle of friends.
** This makes his OutOfFocus [[PutOnABus periods]] in Season 2 and ''Maximum Venom'' all the more jarring, both because he was pretty much the secondary main character throughout Season 1 (one of the biggest things Peter had that Harry didn't was being TheNarrator) and especially since it happens [[spoiler:after the point where he's reconciled with Peter and where one might assume that would lead to the two working in active consort with one another. When Harry and Peter do just that, making a superb combat team, during the climax of ''Maximum Venom'', it just highlights what could have been if Harry maintained his Season 1 focus throughout the rest of the series.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: At least part of his IrrationalHatred for Spider-Man is his desire to have a chance to be in the spotlight as a hero the way Spider-Man is.
* HatesMySecretIdentity: Of all the civilian characters, he easily dislikes Spider-Man the most ([[spoiler:though not as much as his dad and Jameson]]) despite being best friends with Peter Parker.
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: As [[spoiler:Hobgoblin, particularly post-HeelFaceTurn. Harry is frequently seen with his Hobgoblin face mask off, and sometimes with his whole hood down too. This stands out more when you consider Spider-Man is as covetous of his own secret identity as ever. Yet Harry often can't keep his mask on or his hood up for nothing, in spite of Harry potentially being more vulnerable if his secret identity were to be spread too wide than Peter would]].
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: When Horizon High's demonstration at Midtown is sabotaged resulting in his suspension, he thinks Spider-Man (who saved everyone) is responsible while believing the Smythes (the real culprits) wouldn't sink so low. His opinion on Spider-Man is so low that he ''immediately'' assumes that Spider-Man is TheDragon to the Jackal after the latter's sarcastic compliment to the former, and this assumption refuses to disappear [[spoiler:especially after learning about the Jackal's plans for an army with Spider abilities]] even though Spider-Man has been clearly shown fighting the Jackal. Seems to be getting somewhat better in "Spider Island, Part 1" after [[spoiler:he loudly states he thinks Spider-Gwen might be part of the Jackal's Spider army to which Spider-Gwen tells him that he's being irrational, and he makes a clearer (if still begrudging) attempt to just trust Spider-Man and even tries to repair his friendship with Peter]].
* {{Hypocrite}}:
** During the "Rise of Doc Ock" storyline, he finds out about Peter's "alliance" with Spider-Man and breaks off their friendship as he's angry that Peter had lied to him. [[spoiler:But not long after, he pretends to want to reconcile their friendship in order to trick Peter into helping him find the Jackal's lab.]]
** This goes a step further when Harry learns that Peter and Spider-Man are actually the same person during the "Spider-Island" storyline but their friendship gets better in "The Hobgoblin". [[spoiler:However, the "Goblin War" storyline reveals Harry lied about being overseas and actually built the Goblin Mech, something Peter points out.]]
** In the "Goblin War" storyline, Harry gets gradually enraged by [[spoiler:the Goblin King leading the Goblin Nation using mass-produced Goblin technology]]. Yet earlier in "The Hobgoblin", Harry's Hobgoblin technology included [[spoiler:the Vulture's sonic scream]].
* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: [[spoiler:After learning that Doc Ock has brainwashed Spider-Man into joining the Sinister Six, Harry drops all his hatred and tries to reach Peter to break out of the mind control. He succeeds.]]
* {{Irony}}[=/=]DramaticIrony: He values his friendship with Peter but distrusts Spider-Man. Naturally, this leads to loads of dramatic tension throughout Season 1.
* IrrationalHatred: No matter how many people Spider-Man continues to save, Harry refuses to see Spider-Man in a positive light [[spoiler:until the "Spider Island" arc when Spider-Gwen calls him out and after he finds out Peter is Spider-Man. This hatred is dialed UpToEleven when Peter lets Oz Academy get destroyed even though it can always be rebuilt and that it helped cure everyone in New York City.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Harry may have an irrational hatred of Spider-Man, and can be morally skewed but is ultimately a good person. A good example is in the last two parts of the "Spider Island" arc, where [[spoiler:he's understandably upset about Peter not telling him of being Spider-Man, but at least tries to make amends when he sees Peter saving his father]]. "The Hobgoblin" expands on this where he's still mad at Peter for [[spoiler:letting Osborn Academy blow up when trying to save the city]], but has a change of heart when he sees [[spoiler:Peter brainwashed committing crimes, is initially mad, but then tries to get to Spider-Man when he sees the truth]]. He's got quite a bit to do, but he's getting better.
* MythologyGag:
** [[spoiler:His thermal jumpsuit and breathing mask which is a homage to the [[Film/SpiderMan3 New Goblin]].]]
** [[spoiler:His Hobgoblin alter ego is a homage to his Ultimate counterpart in the ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'' comics.]]
** [[spoiler:His knowledge of Mechas is a homage to Normie Osborn having a similar knowledge.]]
* TheNotLoveInterest: Similar to his counterpart in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}''. Harry's friendship with Peter, and how it's affected by Peter's supposed flakiness, is the focus of multiple episodes and one of Peter's most important relationships.
* PutOnABus: Season 2 has Harry (initially) running Oscorp overseas, [[spoiler:or so Harry had claimed]]. Season 3/''Maximum Venom'' also has a noticeable lack of Harry until the climax, though Harry's whereabouts aren't explicitly alluded to this time.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:He finds out that Peter is Spider-Man in "Spider Island, Part 4", and was willing to keep it even though they weren't on the best of terms.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: Happens gradually throughout the series, usually coinciding with Harry's moments of character change and growth.
** [[spoiler:His fight against Dark Goblin in "Generations" shows that Harry's stepped up his game as a fighter during his long periods OutOfFocus in Season 2 and ''Maximum Venom''. He's shown to be able to keep up with Peter and the other Spiders, performing honed [[LeParkour parkour]] and acrobatic feats with just his Hobgoblin suit. While he loses his Goblin Glider early on, Harry still manages to keep pace and show off some epic maneuvers with a little help from Pete as support. He even deals the finishing blow to his dad that knocks the Dark Goblin back into the containment unit that transformed his dad in the first place, complete with a heroically timed OneLiner. A stark contrast to his [[RealityEnsues first real fight]] [[CurbStompBattle against Blizzard]] in Season 1.]]
* UnclePennybags: ''Wants'' to be this for Peter, bringing lunch and breakfast and offering to help cover the tuition costs of attending Horizon High, but Peter turns him down on the basis that it wouldn't feel right to be using his connections that way.]]
* UngratefulBastard: Rather than show appreciation for being saved from the [[KillerRobot Spider Slayer]], he accuses Spider-Man of trying to kill him. Subsequent episodes have him develop a grudge against the web-slinger. [[spoiler:He reaches his lowest point in the "Spider Island" arc, when he lashes out at Spider-Man for getting Osborn Academy destroyed even when New York is saved.]]
* WellDoneSonGuy: He really wants Norman's appreciation, going out of his way to try and impress Norman at every turn with his increasingly over the top and dangerous inventions. But, surprise, surprise, poor Harry doesn't get any of it because his dad is ''Norman Osborn.''
** This dilemma is [[spoiler:officially resolved in "Generations". Upon confronting the Dark Goblin, Harry muses that there was a point where he'd do anything for his father's approval. He then [[ShutUpHannibal definitively concludes]] that that point has long-since past, and they may share blood but [[YoureNotMyFather Norman is no father of Harry's]].]]
* WeUsedToBeFriends: He ends his friendship with Peter in "The Rise of Doc Ock, Part 4" after he gets fed up with Peter backing up Spider-Man, and again during "Spider Island, Part 5". [[spoiler:Thankfully, their friendship is rekindled during "The Hobgoblin" arc.]]

[[caption-width-right:291:]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JoshKeaton
Oscorp's CEO and Harry's father.
----
* [[AbusiveParents Abusive Dad]]: Played with example, but to start with [[spoiler:he frames Harry for a crime his son did not commit]] which is considered abusive for a father to do [[spoiler:(even though he has Spencer Smythe do it)]], not to mention saying that Harry wouldn't have anything without the Osborn name and discouraging from trying to establish himself outside of it, but some episodes shows that Norman cares for his son's safety. This dilemma is [[spoiler:officially at its worst in "Generations" where the Dark Goblin attacks Harry alongside Spider-Man's allies]].
* AdaptationalDumbass: Downplayed. While he's still a very adept manipulator, he gets blindsided by his arrogance more often than in his other incarnations, such as [[spoiler:failing to realize Otto Octavius was going to betray him as soon as he said that he owns Otto's tech]]. He also lacks the intelligence to make his own weapons and will stoop to stealing ideas from others.
* AdaptationalHeroism: To a lesser extent; while he is still as unscrupulous and ruthless as usual, his primary motivation here is to [[spoiler:stop the Jackal's creation of an army of spider-themed {{Super Soldier}}s]], an unusually altruistic goal for his character. He also antagonizes Spider-Man not out of greed or revenge as usual, but because [[spoiler:he wrongly believes Spider-Man to be working for the Jackal. Though it's ultimately subverted on the last part: turns out he wanted Harry to be a hero for the new generation, only for Spider-Man to show up at the wrong time and steal the thunder, so he planned to get rid of Spider-Man]].
* AdaptationalWimp: A variation when it comes to his symbiote-bonded Goblin form. His comics counterpart as the Red Goblin had what amounted to StorybreakerPower with no traditional symbiote weaknesses and manhandled the entire Spider-family, only losing in the end because Spider-Man convinced him to ditch the Carnage symbiote and fight man-to-man. This version [[spoiler:instead bonds with a synthetic symbiote to be the "Dark Goblin". Despite being so enhanced, both Harry and Spider-Man are still able to fight back against him and once the whole Spider-team joins the fray, the Dark Goblin is beaten soundly]].
* AntiVillain: Surprisingly. He is ruthless, manipulative, deceptive and corrupt, but [[spoiler:he genuinely wishes to prevent the Jackal's army of spider-soldiers]].
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:''Maximum Venom'' shows him alive as Curt Connors's contact who’s shown to be somewhere in what appears to be some kind of chamber with his face hidden except for behind the chair shows the top of his hair.]]
* BigBad: Of Season 1 and ''Maximum Venom'', most of the things that go wrong and villains that are created can be traced either directly or indirectly to him.
* BigBadEnsemble: He ends up scheming in conflict with other major villains: Raymond Warren/The Jackal during Season 1 and Venom during ''Maximum Venom''.
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler:"Generations" shows how severe his injuries from Season 1 are. The right side of his face is burned, he is deathly thin, and he is missing [[AnArmAndALeg his left arm and his right leg]]. As the Dark Goblin, he is instantly healed and his limbs are regenerated (possibly as a result of the synthetic symbiote) and even so when he's reverted back to normal.]]
%%* TheChessmaster
* CompositeCharacter:
** [[spoiler:His Dark Goblin form resembles his original counterpart's Red Goblin form with the symbiote abilities and the tail while having the Green Goblin's weaponry and green accents, and his Ultimate counterpart's Hulk-esque size.]]
** [[spoiler:His Spider-King form is an amalgamation of his six-armed counterpart (an alternate equivalent of [[ComicBook/SpiderGeddon Spider-Man]]) and the Spider-Queen.]]
** [[spoiler:His Hobgoblin impersonation is a mix of Roderick Kingsley and Phil Urich.]]
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He ''is'' Norman Osborn after all.
* DeflectorShields: He uses this whenever someone targets him personally.
* DevilInPlainSight: Even at his most Faux Affable, the guy's every word and action has "evil mastermind" written all over it.
* DrivenByEnvy: [[spoiler:Why he framed his own son; he was envious of Max being something greater than the Osborn name.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Can be stern and a bit controlling with Harry but loves his son all the same, despite being a villain. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, he abandons this redeeming aspect after Harry turns on him for masquerading as the Hobgoblin to kill Spider-Man]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: The Jackal approached Norman about working together on an army of spider soldiers and got turned down. Not only that but Norman is viciously driven to prevent this spider army's creation and opts for destroying the resources that would enable the plan rather than taking for his own use.
* EvilCounterpart:
** To Max Modell. Whereas Max prefers to work ethically and students to work together, Norman doesn't care about ethics and encourages competition between each other, even at its most extreme.
** To Uncle Ben. Whereas Ben taught Peter to use talents to help others in his own way, Norman tries to mold his son into a direction he prefers.
* EvilIsOneBigHappyFamily: Norman welcomes all to his faculty those who are morally bankrupt, or who feel betrayed by Modell for denying a chance at their work.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He keeps a courteous and pleasant tone while talking with Modell, but it's pretty clear that behind this thin-veiled facade, he has very clear disdain for the man. Most of the other characters who personally know Norman [[DevilInPlainSight know it's an act immediately]].
* Fiction500: Casually founds an entire academy filled with state-of-the-art technology in virtually no time at all. Then again, he ''is'' the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive CEO of Oscorp]], a rival of various industries.
* ForScience: He's more than willing to manipulate two teenagers who are best friends into attacking each other with lethal sonic weaponry just to see the full capabilities of their creations.
* {{Gaslighting}}: [[spoiler:Had Spencer set up Harry on purpose as an excuse to set up Osborn Academy to have Harry enrolled there, and then guilt-trips Harry and carefully derails his son's confidence to make dependent on his father's tutelage. This is a classic Norman trick common across all adaptations. He also does the same thing to Otto, giving incorrect information as to a cure for the Lizard, then pinning the blame on Spider-Man and leaking to news outlets that Otto is responsible for the Lizard's towering form that trashed the city]].
* GreaterScopeVillain: Like his Ultimate Universe depiction, this version's recurrent as the instigator in a lot of story arcs. It's his work with the Jackal that lead to the creation of the spider based genetic enhancements that empowered Peter, Miles, Anya and Gwen. His scheming to secure greater glory to the Osborn name lead to the creation of Osborn Academy where a lot of supervillains (and one superhero) got their start.
* HateSink: Unlike the [[WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan previous series]], this version is a complete {{Jerkass}} who [[spoiler:manipulates his own son in order to mold into his personal vision]], keeping him in line with his comic counterpart.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: Osborn has some plan or the other, involving [[spoiler:Warren's experiments on spiders, originally hoping to create super soldiers until he discontinued this research]].
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: His manipulations end up hurting him in a big way:
** [[spoiler:After revealing he owns Octavius's technology, Doc Ock takes control of the Oz Commandos whilst revealing an intent to take over Norman's company.]]
** [[spoiler:Norman destroying the Jackal's spider soldier technology is what led to the spider virus being airborne and New York City's citizens are turned in Spider-Creatures.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: He accuses Modell of being a GloryHound, but one of his main reasons for setting up Osborn Academy was to prove he could make a better school than Horizon High. [[spoiler:And "The Hobgoblin" arc reveals that he hates Spider-Man ''far'' more for being a hero before Harry could, essentially because this robbed the Osborn legacy of such a powerful figure.]]
* IHaveNoSon: [[spoiler:"Then you failed me, and deserve what you've wrought!"]]
* ILied: [[spoiler:He promised Connors he would fully cure the Lizard condition if he's restored. Once it's done, however, he admits that the cure was only temporary and that there is no way to make it permanent.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: He's a terrible person and is very upfront about this.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Norman ''thinks'' he is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold with his claims on being stern and tough yet ultimately wanting Harry to do good, but he's vile and cruel deep down.
* KickTheDog: He deliberately sets Herman and Clayton against each other after he sees that they're a team. [[spoiler:Then he sends Alistair Smythe against Spencer.]]
%%* KickTheSonOfABitch
* {{Leitmotif}}: Often accompanied by a quiet, eerie theme whenever he shows up.
* ManipulativeBastard: Can get most people to do what he wants simply by talking to them and preying on their fears, insecurities and desires, letting him get away with any one of his "experiments" since he didn't have to get his own hands dirty.
* MythologyGag:
** [[spoiler:He's briefly called "Normie" is an apparent nod to Normie Osborn.]]
** [[spoiler:His Hobgoblin impersonation is similar to what his mainstream counterpart did in the ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan'' comics.]]
* NeverFoundTheBody: [[spoiler:His body wasn’t found which leads to Peter and Harry believing he's still alive.]]
* NotHisSled: This version doesn't use the Green Goblin moniker, [[spoiler:however, he embraces the Dark Goblin name in ''Maximum Venom'']].
* RedHerring: [[spoiler:Norman's body wasn’t found, leading to Peter and Harry to believe he's seemingly returns in Season 2 as the Goblin King. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] as his actual status remains uncertain (at the time), and Adrian Toomes is the Goblin King while the heroes just had the wrong assumption.]]
* TheResenter: [[spoiler:Big time. He wanted Harry to be a hero of the new generation. But after Spider-Man showed up, he came to the conclusion that Spider-Man was stealing his son's thunder and made several plots to get rid of Spider-Man and get the Osborn name into the spotlight.]]
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:His defeat and near death in Season 1's finale has taken a toll on his mind, getting completely obsessed with revenge on Spider-Man. As the Dark Goblin, he refuses to acknowledge his humanity.]]
* SayingTooMuch: [[spoiler:While attacking as the Hobgoblin, he told Spider-Man that he would learn the web-slinger's secret identity before killing, making Spider-Man realize that it wasn't Harry attacking since Harry already knew Spider-Man's true identity.]]
* StageDad: [[spoiler:Wants to mold Harry into his idea of the hero that New York City needs, and got Harry kicked out of Horizon and set up Osborn Academy so he could keep a closer eye on and mentor himself instead of letting Max influence his son.]]
* StartMyOwn: After Harry's suspended from Horizon High, it's mentions that his dad wants to start his own, better school. He makes due on that promise in "Osborn Academy", and it's out of spite for how Modell and the other students at Horizon treated Harry. [[spoiler:And, given the plot to frame Harry was his idea, Norman was planning it from the start.]]
* ThatManIsDead: [[spoiler:As the Dark Goblin, he refuses to be called Norman Osborn ever again, and even insists that Spider-Man is Peter's true self.]]
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: [[spoiler:His survival is spoiled by the trailer of "Generations".]]
* UngratefulBastard: Max officially clears Harry of all charges, and how does Norman repay Horizon High? Burns all bridges with them by opening Osborn Academy and convinces Harry not to go back to Horizon, all because he can't forgive them for not believing in Harry. [[spoiler:The fact that it was Norman who framed Harry and started the situation is all the more hypocritical and cynical.]]
** [[spoiler:After Connors helped Norman with his plans in exchange of a cure for the Lizard mutations, the Dark Goblin repays this by refusing and bragging that the cures he supplied were always temporary.]]
* VillainousBreakdown:
** In "The Rise of Doc Ock, Part 4", [[spoiler:when he finds out that the Oz Commandos were no longer under his control results in him (for the first time in the series) stumbling, losing his coolheadedness (seen when he tries to kill the four experimental Spiders), and being legitimately afraid for his life]].
** In "The Hobgoblin", [[spoiler:he drops his FauxAffablyEvil act after being discovered as the Hobgoblin promptly trying to kill Spider-Man and then viciously disowns his son for refusing to follow his orders]].
* VillainHasAPoint:
** Despite the nefarious purpose behind his school, it's hard to argue against him when he mentions that Harry's classmates didn't stand by him when he was accused. Max in particular, while being a ReasonableAuthorityFigure about the whole thing ''and'' being smart enough to recognize Smythe framing him, still chose to suspend Harry before he absolutely had to. [[spoiler:Then again, the whole plot to frame Harry was Norman's idea, anyway. Nonetheless, the fact that those who knew Harry for the longest time didn't believe in his innocence in such a situation justifies that sentiment.]]
** He also didn't want Harry to debut his flying glider at the Stark Expo. Though Norman probably had his own agenda for the glider, he was still right to tell Harry not to present it there, considering a supervillain hijacked the expo and destroyed almost everybody's experiments there. Harry later understood afterwards.
** Although Max is the one who acknowledges it, no matter how morally bankrupt people see Norman as, he has the right to run his school as he sees fit, so Max has no say in the matter.
* WaistcoatOfStyle: This version sports one constantly, rather than the usual double-breasted suits he wears.

!!Hobgoblin
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/MaxMittelman
----
* AdaptationalHeroism: Played with. Most incarnations are villains as the Hobgoblin, [[spoiler:however, Harry Osborn is depicted as a hero. Subverted with Norman Osborn's impersonation]].
* AdaptedOut: Roderick Kingsley and Phil Urich are nowhere to be seen.
* CastAsAMask: The Hobgoblin alter ego shares the same voice actor as Harry Osborn (voiced by Creator/MaxMittelman) as well as the antagonistic impersonator [[spoiler:who is unmasked to be Norman Osborn (voiced by Creator/JoshKeaton)]].
* CompositeCharacter: This version of Hobgoblin is an amalgamation of Urich with the flame sword, being a heroic Goblin and sonic scream, and Kingsley with the flying glider. [[spoiler:Plus the identity being used by Harry such as his Ultimate counterpart.]]
* CoolSword: The Hobgoblin uses a blade made out of fire.
* DecompositeCharacter: In-universe. [[spoiler:The Hobgoblin mantle is used by Harry primarily as a hero while Norman's impersonation comes off as a villain.]]
* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler:Norman-Goblin]] is one to Spider-Man. Whereas Spider-Man makes sure civilians are safe from danger, the Hobgoblin will actually welcome collateral damage.
* {{Foil}}: [[spoiler:Harry-Goblin]] is one to Spider-Man. While Spider-Man relies on spider strength, the Hobgoblin replies on an arsenal of weapons. Both make their own respective tech, however, Spider-Man has limited resources while the Hobgoblin has Oscorp's limitless resources [[spoiler:to the point of mass-production for the Goblin Nation]].
* MythologyGag: The Hobgoblin alter-ego being created by Oscorp is an homage to the [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries 1990s animated series]].

[[folder:Otto Octavius / Doctor Octopus]]
!![[ComicBook/DoctorOctopus Doctor Octopus (Otto Octavius)]]
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img_08022018_202303.jpg]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/ScottMenville
A young but brilliant, somewhat irritable teacher at Horizon High, Otto Octavius ends up suffering an accident leading to one of his inventions, a harness with tentacle-like apprendices, being merged to his body. He is initially inspired by Peter into becoming a hero as "the Octopus", but tensions with Max Modell, coupled with Norman Osborn's manipulations, eventually lead him to quit and join Oz Academy instead. When Osborn betrays his trust as well, he turns against him and starts a career as a criminal, renaming himself Doctor Octopus.
----
* AbusiveParents: [[spoiler:During his childhood, his father Torbert was shown to be both physically and verbally abusive to Otto, such as pushing and belittling him about science.]]
* ActingYourIntellectualAge: Despite being nineteen, which is very young for an adult, he acts and talks to students as if he's even older.
* ActuallyIAmHim: When Peter first meets him, Peter mistakes Otto for a fellow student and mentions the bad things heard about Otto. It's only upon seeing a picture of Otto receiving an award from the Mayor that Peter realizes of talking to Otto.
* AdaptationalHeroism: While his comic counterpart always was a NobleDemon and did try to act as a hero during a [[ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan specific arc]], he started out as a straight villain and was one for most of his career. This incarnation, while definitely a JerkAss with ego problems, starts out as a hero before his ego gets the better of him in season 1. He also doesn't snap and go psychopathic after his freak accident like most versions of his character did, instead continuing his career as a teacher until [[spoiler:the tensions with Modell lead him to quit]]. In season 2, he also [[spoiler:makes a genuine attempt to [[HeelFaceTurn reform]] after giving Peter's body back, and dies a hero in season 2's finale]].
* AlliterativeName: '''O'''tto '''O'''ctavius.
* AppropriatedAppellation: Implied. Briefly in "The Rise of Doc Ock, Part 3", Peter refers to the Oz Commandos as "sinister". In the very next part, after revealing that he [[spoiler:used mind control on the other members]], he refers to the group as the "Sinister Five".
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:At the end of "The Living Brain", he successfully takes over Spider-Man's body after transferring his consciousness from the titular robot. [[AndIMustScream Guess where Spidey's consciousness is now?]]]]
* BewareTheQuietOnes: While Otto's definitely an InsufferableGenius, he does tend to dip into this on some occasions. [[spoiler:The most recent case being the "quiet one" of the "Oz Commandos", being subservient to Osborn until the Oz Commandos are ordered to finish off the Jackal...which is where Doc Ock reveals his ManipulativeBastard qualities through EvilGloating.]]
* BigBadEnsemble: [[spoiler:His scheming and machinations in the "Rise of Doc Ock" multi-parter puts him on the same level as Norman Osborn and the Jackal in season 1. With Norman seemingly killed and the Jackal out of the picture, Octavius is the only operating major villain of season 2's first half.]]
* BigOlEyebrows: Has a rather big set of those.
* BodyHorror: His robotic arms are ''merged'' with his nervous system now in "The Rise of Doc Ock Part 1".
* CharacterDevelopment: [[spoiler:Spending time as the Superior Spider-Man significantly softens him, putting him toward a genuine effort to become a hero (albeit [[GoodIsNotNice much darker than Peter]]), and his interactions with Anna Maria and the swap being undone result in him shedding a lot of his worst tendencies as both Doctor Octopus and the Superior Spider-Man, becoming an ally to Peter as a result.]]
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:How did he manage to get control of Peter's body? By sending wave after wave of villains after him to tire him out.]]
* CompositeCharacter: He is under Oscorp's employment like his Ultimate Marvel version and is the Sinister Six's leader like his mainstream version. His connection with Horizon High and [[spoiler:his mind within the Neuro-Cortex followed by a robot body also makes him one to his backup consciousness and the Living Brain]].
* CoolShades: In his pre-villain days, he occasionally wore black sunglasses through experiments and crime-fighting.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:He sacrifices himself to save New York during the "Goblin War" arc.]]
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler:He dies in Peter's in "Goblin War, Part 4".]]
* EvilCounterpart: Another one to Peter Parker/Spider-Man; they're remarkably intelligent for their age and driven to do good by a figure who gave them a pep-talk on using their abilities responsibly, but unlike Peter, Otto's ego cripples his judgment and eventually results in him being a villain. In a dark mirror to Max seeing Peter's potential and letting him into Horizon, Norman wants Octavius to be part of Oscorp, [[spoiler:something Norman succeeds in]]. [[spoiler:He also leads a team of people with great scientific minds, but instead of a mutual desire to work together, has implanted mind control devices on them to render them subservient to him.]]
* EvilGenius: [[spoiler:Is ''miffed'' with Norman after discovering the Octobot project. When he confronts Norman about this, Norman nonchalantly dismisses his complaints, since Oscorp owns Otto's research contractually. To get back at Norman, Otto utilizes mind-control devices he developed alongside the Jackal in order to completely brainwash the Oz Commandos and severely wound Norman, effortlessly taking over Oscorp as well as the Jackal's own research. ''Damn.'']]
* EvilIsHammy: He was mostly a stoic grump before, but he gets more bombastic as Doctor Octopus.
* FatalFlaw: {{Pride}}. While Otto undeniably is brilliant, he is so convinced of his own genius that he dismisses ''everyone'' as less intelligent than him and doesn't even considers they might have a point. Most notably, he worked on an extremely volatile power source ''in a school's basement'' in blatant disregard for the students' security, based on the argument that surely, someone with a superior intelligence like him would ''know'' how to make it safe. [[spoiler:Amusingly, this also is what prevents him from figuring out Spider-Man's identity; despite having recognize Peter's tech on one of Spider-Man's tracers, his assumption is that Peter is ''providing'' tech for Spider-Man rather than being Spider-Man himself, because he cannot believe Spider-Man would be smart enough to build his own tech like himself is.]]
* ForScience: His primary motivation. He considers any risk to be worth the pursuit of scientific advancement, and looks down on those who think otherwise.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:He was bullied as a child for his short stature, and his father physically and emotionally abused him because he resented his intelligence and love of science. That instilled in him the constant need to prove his superiority over others that would ultimately lead him down the path of villainy.]]
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:As his molecules are ripped apart by his HeroicSacrifice, Otto can't help but smile tearfully because he finally found a best friend with Peter.]]
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:At the end of "The Living Brain", he transfers his consciousness into Spider-Man. With neither Miles nor Spider-Girl none the wiser.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:"Superior" has him sacrificing himself to give Peter's body back after realizing what it truly means to be a hero. When he wakes up from his coma in "The Cellar", he seems to be on his way towards being an ally.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:In "Goblin War, Part 4", he uses the Neuro Cortex to disable Adrian Toomes's mech, but at the cost of his own life.]]
* HijackedByGanon: [[spoiler:He turns out to be the mastermind who put a bounty on Spider-Man's head in season 2, hoping to tire Peter out until he could finally enact his plan to steal Spider-Man's body.]]
* IHaveManyNames: Otto Octavius, Doctor Octopus, Doc Ock, The Octopus, [[spoiler:Superior Spider-Man]].
* IJustWantToBeLoved: It's buried so deep even Otto's not aware of it, but all he really wants is to be accepted. Unfortunately, thanks to [[spoiler:his father's abuse]] and the resulting superiority complex, he believes it doesn't come unconditionally, so he must prove he's worthy of people's acknowledgement. At the time of the series, he's long forgotten ''why'' he needs to be smarter than everybody else.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: For all his arrogance, Otto really is looking for people recognizing his genius, something he had trouble finding due to his young age, and as such tends to follow whoever acknowledges him as brilliant. Max being the first to recognize him despite his age was what led him to join Horizon High. [[spoiler:This is also exploited by Norman to create tension between him and Max, and get him to join Oscorp.]]
* InsufferableGenius: Otto is an incredibly smart and talented scientist, especially considering his age; unfortunately, he also is very arrogant, dismissive of others and constantly convinced he knows better than anyone else around him due to his intelligence.
* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: "The Rise of Doc Ock" reveals he always was considered a freak by his peers due to his high intelligence, presumably leading to his asocial behavior.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Arrogant, dismissive of others, easily annoyed and generally an unpleasant teacher, but does occasionally compliment his students, and his bouts of heroism were genuine, if somewhat reluctant. [[spoiler:He's later released from prison after his Sinister Six stunt was foiled, and in the months spent he gained three degrees, and seems to have TookALevelInKindness]], however [[spoiler:the Kindness part turns out be be an act and he became a JerkWithAHeartOfJerk to use his kind facade as a way for his master plan. As of "The Cellar", however, he seems to have fully become this trope. Time will tell if it sticks.]]
* LoveRedeems: [[spoiler:It's ultimately his feelings for Anna Maria and desire to validate her belief that he's a hero that push him towards cementing his HeelFaceTurn.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:After spending much of his tenure in the Oz Commandos as TheQuietOne, Octavius fully embraces his supervillain status by expositing his plan to overthrow Norman as head of Oscorp, since the company owns all his research. To that end, he utilized the Jackal's mind-control research to brainwash the rest of the Commandos into his minions and formed a VillainTeamUp with the Jackal, ''off-screen and out of prying eyes''. The plan goes off without a hitch...except, of course, for the fact that Norman apparently survives the ordeal. Still, the minimal time and effort Otto put into his plan is astounding.]]
* MissionControl: As of "The Road to Goblin War", [[spoiler:Otto finds a new way to be a hero as Spider-Man's partner behind the Spider's Nest computers, headset and all, and controlling the Spider-Bots.]]
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: [[spoiler:He turns against Osborn after finding out Norman stole his technology by hiring him.]]
* MoralMyopia: [[spoiler:After the Sinister Five are freed from his mind control and attack him, he is outraged that they would "betray" him, believing that he was helping the group to "achieve greatness".]]
* NeverMyFault: [[spoiler:In "The Hobgoblin, Part One", he claims that Max Modell had "practically driven" him to side with Osborn.]]
* NeverTrustATrailer: This version of Doctor Octopus is 19 years old, only slightly older than Peter. However, [[https://static3.comicvine.com/uploads/original/4/46646/5813593-6718589659-15403.jpg a poster to promote the show]] features the traditional middle-aged version with a bowl cut.
* NoBodyLeftBehind: [[spoiler:In "Goblin War, Part 4", his body fades away after he dies, leaving only his tentacles.]]
* NotSoAboveItAll: Otto spends most of his earlier episodes as TheStoic, and looks down to the Spider-Men for their goofy antics. However, he himself displays a liking for catchy names (he came up himself with his two aliases and the Sinister Five name), makes attempts at witty banter during his brief career as a hero, and [[EvilIsHammy can at times be quiet hammy]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: He is ''nineteen'', but looks young enough that Peter initially mistakes him for a fellow student.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Much like the comics, Octavius created a nuclear reactor with mechanical arms, requiring engineering and nuclar physics degrees. Somewhat justified in his return when he gained three more doctorates (at least one in neuroscience) [[spoiler:during his time in prison]], which helps the plot along significantly.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:In the "Goblin War" arc, he uses the Neuro Cortex to defeat Toomes to make up for his sins, but dies in Peter's arms in doing so.]]
* ReformedButRejected: [[spoiler:Unsurprisingly, no one except Anna Maria and Peter is willing to accept his genuine turn to the side of good, especially since he faked being reformed once before, not to mention the many moral lines he crossed as a supervillain. It takes him sacrificing himself for everyone to acknowledge his turn to good.]]
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:In the "Superior Spider-Man" arc, he learns about Peter's identity while possessing Spider-Man's body.]]
* ShadowArchetype: [[spoiler:He's basically what Peter would've turned into without the kindness and support of Aunt May and Uncle Ben. Like Peter, he's a promising man of science who was bullied for his intelligence. Without anyone to support him and put him on the right path, however, Otto became obsessed with proving his superiority over those who belittled him, which evolved into a full-blown InferioritySuperiorityComplex that would lead him to eventually becoming a supervillain. Upon finding out about his past, Peter notes how they're NotSoDifferent.]]
* ShorterMeansSmarter: Is much shorter than Peter, and quite brilliant.
* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Seems to be the impetus of his eventual transformation into Dr. Octopus; he was bullied by his peers for his intelligence, [[spoiler:was unable to keep the job he has at Horizon due to Max assuming the worst of him, and then finding out that he doesn't own any of his tech anymore]]. These, coupled with calling his team "the Sinister Five", suggests he's decided to drop any pretense of being a hero entirely.
* TheStoic: He's not much on emotions.
* TheUsurper: [[spoiler:Is primarily this to Osborn as leader of the "Oz Commandos" (aka the Sinister Five), having severely injured him in the finale of "Rise of Doc Ock", and surprisingly this to the Jackal as well, at least in terms of his mind-control research.]]
* VillainTeamUp: [[spoiler:Teams up with the Jackal to help along with his mutiny of Oscorp, although the latter seems to consider the deal more of an EnemyMine.]]
* VoiceForTheVoiceless: He speaks for the Sinister Five who never speak since they are [[spoiler:being mind-controlled by him]].
* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: [[spoiler:He becomes this for Peter, and later the other Spiders, after he reverses their bodyswap and comes out of his coma.]]
* YoungerAndHipper: This version is only nineteen instead of a middle-aged man as in the comics and other versions.

[[caption-width-right:350:]]

A scientist who can turn into an animalistic, green-furred criminal trying to steal technology for unknown purposes. [[spoiler:Also happens to be Gwen's uncle. Later revealed to have created the spiders behind Peter's and Miles's abilities- and he fully intends to use them to create an entire army at his command.]]
----
* ActuallyADoombot: [[spoiler:The creature that attacked Norman and the one in prison were both his clones, with the latter revealing this is a favored tactic for keeping the real Jackal out of the spotlight.]]
* AdaptedOut: Miles Warren is nowhere to be seen and the Jackal persona is used by his brother Raymond Warren.
* AdaptationOriginConnection: [[spoiler:This version is responsible for the creation of the spiders who behind the abilities of Peter and the main cast. He is also responsible for the Rhino serum.]]
* AdaptationalVillainy: The Jackal's comic counterpart was driven insane by Gwen's [[ComicBook/TheNightGwenStacyDied infamous demise]], but was classified as an AntiVillain. This version has no such excuse and only seeks to perfect his projects at the expense of everyone else.
* ArtEvolution: He sports prominent [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] when he [[spoiler:reappears in ''Maximum Venom'']] along with gaunter facial features that make him look even more deranged.
* AxCrazy: While his human self (despite still being evil) is a bit more collected, his Jackal persona displays psychopathic tendencies, including trying to kill random bystanders or threatening to dissect Spider-Man so he could figure out how his nemesis's powers work.
* BigBadEnsemble: He ends up in conflict with Season 1's other major villain Norman Osborn.
* TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler:After having a long absence, he finally returns in ''Maximum Venom''.]]
* CompositeCharacter: His comics counterpart is the Jackal's ''brother'' but [[OneSteveLimit seeing as the Jackal's name was Miles and this series already has a character named Miles as a protagonist... yeah]]. This version also has a character trait from [[spoiler:Arthur Stacy through being portrayed as Gwen's uncle]].
* CreepyUncle: [[spoiler:The way he has Gwen pinned on the bed with his creation and his way of wanting Gwen to respect him, gives him some creepy implications for a show aimed for kids.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: As evil as he is, Raymond does seem to genuinely care about [[spoiler:Gwen]], as he [[spoiler:actually goes through the trouble of saving his niece in the middle of a crime]].
* EvilUncle: [[spoiler:He's Gwen Stacy's uncle.]]
* EvilVersusEvil: Both he and Norman are ruthless and willing to do morally questionable things to reach their goals, but they end up in conflict due to [[spoiler:Norman opposing his plan to create a spider soldier army]].
* ExpendableClone: [[spoiler:Uses these to keep himself incognito, and even the clones themselves go along with this, to the point of one in prison killing himself upon learning that another one self-destructed.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: Likes to have seemingly genial conversations with his opponents and co-workers, but it's clear that much of it isn't genuine at all.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: [[spoiler:As of ''Maximum Venom'', he's now behind bars.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Episodes involving him tend to be game changers, due to his personal connection to [[spoiler:Gwen Stacy]], and his overall influence having series-wide consequences. He's also regularly portrayed as being among the most evil of Spider-Man's enemies in the series, being far more willing to intentionally try and commit murder on innocent bystanders for seemingly no reason. He's also the villain that came the closest to succeeding at their goals throughout Season 1, with the events of [[spoiler:Spider-Island]].
* MadScientist: Just like in his comic equivalent, this version is implied to have created the serum behind the ability to shapeshift into a jackal-man, and [[spoiler:is responsible for both mutating the Rhino and creating the spiders which are behind the main cast's abilities.]]
* OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: He has the ability to switch between his human form and furry, green-haired BeastMan with jackal ears.
* OutOfFocus: He's largely absent from Season 2, and left mostly unacknowledged with sporadic references to his influence to be referenced but with no physical reappearance. [[spoiler:He officially returns in ''Maximum Venom'', temporarily working with Osborn.]]
* RedHerring: Played with. He's introduced with almost no formal introduction in his first appearance, much like the Scorpion, seemingly indicating that he's going to be a BitPartBadGuy, but at the end of his episode, [[spoiler:is shown to secretly be Gwen's uncle]], highlighting that he's really going to be a very important character, and in fact one of the most major antagonists of the series.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: This version is [[spoiler:Gwen Stacy's uncle]].
* SendInTheClones: Just like in the comics, he has a big liking for clones. [[spoiler:In this case, he repeatedly uses clones of himself as decoys, and intends to create an army of them with Spider-Man's abilities.]]
* SuicideAttack: His clones have a self-destruct feature. A Jackal and Raymond Warren clone both use it to try to kill Norman and Spider-Man respectively.
* ThatManIsDead [[spoiler:In ''Maximum Venom'', he no longer responds to Raymond Warren and considers himself to be only The Jackal.]]

----
* AlliterativeName: '''S'''pencer '''S'''mythe.
* BullyingTheDragon: Mouths off to the Vulture only to get sent flying into a wall by his sonic weapon.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: "Ultimate Spider-Man" implied that he cares for his son.
* HateSink: Frames Harry for nearly killing everyone at Max's speech, inadvertently messes up his relationship with Peter, and considering [[spoiler:[[ForegoneConclusion what happens to his kid in the comics...]]]] [[spoiler:It turns out this was exploited by Norman, needing him to sabotage the project so that Norman would have an excuse to place Harry into Osborn Academy]].
* KickTheDog: In the first episode, he sabotages an experimental machine during Horizon High's demonstration, and frames his former student Harry, putting numerous people in danger and resulting in the latter being suspended indefinitely solely to spite Max Modell.
* PlayingGertrude: Creator/BenDiskin (who's in his mid-30s) voices the middle-aged character. Additionally, Spencer is the father of Alistair--and Diskin is 9 years ''younger'' than Jason Spisak (Alistair's voice actor).
* {{Revenge}}: Seeks retribution against Norman for not honoring their deal.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/AlastairDuncan

----
* AdaptationalVillainy: While his comic counterpart has more redeeming qualities, this version is far more vile, [[spoiler:willing to use his minions as tools and having no problem with the idea of killing many civilians just to get to Spider-Man]], making him the second most amoral version of Adrian Toomes right next to his Noir counterpart.
* AgeLift: Instead of an elderly man, this version is presented as being more of a middle aged man with his hair still intact and with full color.
* ArcVillain: [[spoiler:Of the "Goblin War" arc as the Goblin King.]]
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:He's a member of the Sinister Five via mind control in "The Rise of Doc Ock, Part 4" and "The Hobgoblin, Part 1".]]
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He's much more impulsive, loud, and egotistical in the pilot episode, but later appearances have shown him to be one of the few of Norman's henchmen to be relatively sane, mild-mannered, and even refuses to steal from Horizon [[PragmaticVillainy because it'd jeopardize having just got out of prison]]. Given that Alistair wears a different Vulture suit and demonstrates a lot of the same traits as Toomes's first appearance, it was likely to help keep the two distinct when they both wore the Vulture technology.
* CompositeCharacter: His Vulture technology is a mix of his original incarnation and his MCU counterpart. [[spoiler:He also later takes on the Goblin King identity.]]
* TheDragon: He's Norman's top enforcer after he is bailed.
* FatalFlaw: {{Pride}}. His inflated sense of pride is why he's the Vulture and attacks Max Modell. This trait also allows the Wake Riders to convince him to return to a life of crime in "Rise Above It All" and ultimately drive him [[spoiler:in his crusade as the Goblin King]].
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:He goes from a glorified minion of Norman and Doctor Octopus to the leader of a crime movement that has practically every criminal in New York.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler:His motivation in the "Goblin War" arc is that he wishes to be recognized for his technology which has been claimed by Oscorp. He accomplishes this by assimilating Electro's and Silvermane's inventions into the Goblin Nation, and stealing the Hobgoblin's schematics.]]
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Since Spencer pretty much falls into the HateSink category, the Vulture attacking Spencer can come off as this.
* MakeMeWannaShout: The Vulture's main WeaponOfChoice in contrast to his other versions.
* MoralMyopia: During a {{Crossover}} with ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'', he insisted that he wasn't a criminal despite breaking out of jail with Ulysses Klaue's help. When Spider-Man arrived on the scene, he tried to "prove" himself by attempting to capture Klaue while wrecking Horizon's gym as he did. When Spidey pointed out all the damage he was causing, the Vulture replied "And your point is?".
* NeverMyFault: Modell fired him for stealing equipment that belonged to the school. He got pissed and decides to kill Max, blaming Max for it.
* NeverTrustATrailer: This version looks like he came out of ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''. However, [[https://static3.comicvine.com/uploads/original/4/46646/5813593-6718589659-15403.jpg a poster to promote the show]] features a design more akin to his counterpart in ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming''.
* PoweredArmor: His Vulture technology grants him {{flight}} and a sonic scream. [[spoiler:As the Goblin King, he sports a bulkier, green Goblin suit followed by the Goblin Mech.]]
* PragmaticVillainy: He's bailed out of jail in "Symbiotic Relationship", and when Norman tells him to go steal the V-252 from Horizon, he points out that he just got out of prison and doesn't want to risk getting caught again so soon.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:He's the Goblin King, not Norman as everyone initially assumes.]]

* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: [[spoiler:In "The Day Without Spider-Man", he grows to a larger size after getting blasted by the Bloodstone.]]
* BewareMyStingerTail: As per usual with the Scorpion, his main method to fight is a gigantic tail with a stinger. He can also use it to shoot beams in this incarnation.
* BitPartBadGuy: In the second episode, he shows up robbing a museum without much context as to who he is or how he got his suit, just to give Spidey someone to fight in the BatmanColdOpen.
* DecompositeCharacter: His comic counterpart's status as Venom's third major host is [[spoiler:Eddie]] instead.
* DemotedToExtra: Compared to all of Spider-Man's other mainstay antagonists who show up in the series, a majority of whom have gotten an origin story. The Scorpion gets no backstory or even any context as to who he is.
** Averted where he has a much bigger role in "The Day Without Spider-Man", where he teams up with the Tinkerer.

----
* AdaptationRelationshipOverhaul: This version isn't romantically interested in Spider-Man unlike other incarnations.
* ClassyCatBurglar: A staple of the character, although this version doesn't mind stealing stuff in broad daylight.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: Steals a car from a local dealership, apparently not knowing car dealers intentionally keep exhibit cars at low gas.
* {{Expy}}: She can be seen as one to Catwoman, due to her cat burglar shtick and being rather playful with the hero. She's even voiced by her voice actress from the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'' .
* TheGadfly: Spends her entire debut episode messing with Spidey and treating attempts to apprehend her as if it's some big game. She also doesn't take it badly when Spidey hands her over to the cops.
* KarmaHoudini: Zig-zagged. This version, unlike most versions, gets arrested as while Spider-Man actually is bothered by this, but it's implied she'll break out before she even makes it to jail.

-> '''Voiced by''': Music/SofiaCarson

Flint Marko's estranged daughter who was taken by Hammerhead.
----
* AdaptationNameChange: Her comics counterpart had the last name Alvarado, but this version has her father's last name.
* AdaptationalBadass: This version inherits her father's abilities, while her comics counterpart was a regular human girl. This aspect of her character may have been taken instead from ''ComicBook/SpiderManReign''.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Her comics counterpart was a CheerfulChild and supportive of her father and didn't understand that he was a villain. This version, however, is hostile and resentful towards Flint and joins Hammerhead. Although she inherits her father's powers, she outright kills Flint.
* AgeLift: Her comics counterpart was about seven or eight when she met the adult Spider-Man. This version's a teenager at the same time Spider-Man is.
* AssholeVictim: Downplayed. [[spoiler:Keemia gets turned into a glass statue by Superior Spider-Man in season 2. Normally, viewers would feel bad for her given her rough life. Then again, since she possibly murdered her father in season 1, it's hard to muster sympathy for her.]]
* {{Bifauxnen}}: Keemia dresses in punk clothes and has a boyish look, but is a girl.
* BlindingBangs: Her hair covers her right eye (or rather, what used to be her eye).
* TheBusCameBack: She returns in season 2, having apparently become a crime boss.
* CallingTheOldManOut: In Season 1, she berates her father's criminal activities during their fight. She also outright tells her old man how stupid he was for bringing her anywhere near Hammerhead, and then leaving her alone.
* CompositeCharacter: She has the antagonistic and criminal traits that are usually associated with her father from the comics and other versions.
* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: When she appears in Flint's flashback, she seems to be at most aloof. When she's revealed to be working for Hammerhead, she doesn't sound completely sane anymore and is borderline berserk.
* DespairEventHorizon: By the time Spider-Man and Flint track her down in Season 1, she seems to have completely given up on her dreams of studying hard and carving out a brighter future for herself than her less-educated criminal father. Instead, she accepts she has no options other to be a criminal too, and throws herself into the role with a manic, berserk fervor.
* TheDragon: Serves as this for Hammerhead.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Sort of. Although she's Flint's daughter, she says that she hates Flint before possibly crushing her father into dust.
** That said, Keemia only got mutated when she followed her father into the factory because she was frightened, and clearly thought she would be safe. She was tragically wrong.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: In Season 2, she is now shown wearing a red beanie and a red shirt.
* EvilCounterpart: To Spider-Man. She's encouraged to use her powers for personal gain by someone she considers a surrogate father, rather than using them responsibly.
* EvilGenius: During her MotiveRant in Season 1, she mentions being very good at science ([[RunningGag like seemingly everyone else in the series thus far]]), having studied hard in order to build a brighter future for herself than the one her father has. She also figures out her powers and how to use them much sooner than her father did.
* EyeScream: Her right eye is made of sand as a result of her mutation, which explains her hair covering the right side of her face.
** Unlike Flint being able to pass for human completely, her eye seems to be in a permanent state of sand. While she can pass for a regular girl with her hair hanging over it, all it takes is a breeze to blow the hair out of the way...
* HateSink: While Keemia ''does'' have a FreudianExcuse for her nasty temperament, it doesn't justify her decisions, and she ends up being more vile than the original Sandman ever was. Not only does she seemingly murder her father, she also becomes a mob enforcer. And tries to kill Spider-Man as well, ''just for trying to help!'' [[spoiler:It's pretty much satisfying to see Superior Spider-Man turn her into a glass sculpture.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}:
** In season one, she admonishes her father for his criminal lifestyle and hates him for the accident that gave her superpowers, but ended up joining the exact same gang that tried to murder him and indirectly gave her powers that she freely uses. By the time of her return in season two, she's become a worse criminal than her father ever was (and is clearly [[EvilFeelsGood enjoying]] every minute of it).
** In Season 2, she claims Spider-Man is "just a kid", even though she's a teenager herself.
* {{Jerkass}}: A major one. When her father and Spider-Man show up to rescue her, she rudely says the fight doesn't concern Spider-Man.
* KarmaHoudini: In season 1, she escapes after Spider-Man has defeated Hammerhead's goons and tries to capture her. She returns in season 2, still on the run from the police.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: When she finally does make another appearance, [[spoiler:the Superior Spider-Man sets off a trap [[AndIMustScream to turn her into glass]], [[LiterallyShatteredLives and would have shattered her to pieces if it weren't for the Ultimate Spy-D]].]]
* KickTheDog: She downright kills Flint, even though her father outright refuses to fight back. This leads to Spider-Man unleashing the V-252 suit and defeating her.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: She seems honestly unaware that the "accident" behind her and Flint's abilities was in fact a deliberate attempt by Hammerhead to kill her father, blaming her father for it instead of her savior.
* NeverMyFault: She blames her father for getting her involved in the "accident" behind both of their superpowers, even though it was her decision to sneak out of the car and enter the building he was in.
** Crosses with VillainHasAPoint, though. What kind of father would bring his teenage daughter to a place where he was planning to meet a crime boss... and then leave her all alone in the car?
* NiceHat: Wears a green beanie in Season 1, which becomes part of her once she transforms. [[spoiler:She changes it to a red one in Season 2.]]
* SelfMadeOrphan: Seemingly [[{{Patricide}} kills her father]] in a fit of rage.
* TragicMonster: The reason she got mutated as well was because she was afraid to be left alone in an unfamiliar place, and so followed her father. Her MotiveRant as she attacks him during the climax reveals that she'd worked hard in order to avoid going down the same path of the criminal her father did, but now that she was a mutated freak that was all for nothing.
* UngratefulBitch: She hates her father for working for a criminal in spite of everything done was to support her. And by the time Flint and Spider-Man show up to rescue her, she attacks the two relentlessly.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In spite of being introduced in a fairly plot important episode, she's completely unaccounted for by the end of season 1, and doesn't show up in any of Hammerhead's other appearances. She finally shows up again in season 2.
* TheWorfEffect: She manages to defeat her father and nearly kill Spider-Man, up until the V-252 merges with Spidey, resulting in her being on the ropes.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JimCummings

A crime boss who Flint Marko and Randy Macklin used to work for.
----
* BigBadWannabe: Considering (Norman, Otto, the Jackal, Toomes and Venom) are more competent threats to Spider-Man than him.
* BrooklynRage: As expected at this point, this version sports a Brooklyn accent.
* BullyingADragon: Antagonizes Mackiln and gets frozen to the wall for it.
* ButtMonkey: Out of the recurring villains, he's the most likely to be humiliated or left in a precarious position, often thanks to his own actions (the area he's hiding out with Keemia ends up destroyed, he gets frozen by Blizzard, and [[PoorCommunicationKills doesn't disclose the importance of an encrypted thumb-drive]] to Absorbing Man to keep things simple which sabotages his operations).
* TheCorrupter: Turned Keemia against Sandman.
* TheDon: He's a crime boss.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: While he's clearly manipulating Keemia, he has genuine love for his 8 year old son Tully.
* QualityVsQuantity: Expresses the belief that while supervillains are more expensive than regular hoods, they also make more to make up for it.
* PetTheDog: Downplayed. He takes in Keemia and even helps restore Keemia after being exposed to the same mixture of sand and toxic waste that he tried to kill Sandman with. That said, he also gleefully manipulated Keemia's vulnerable emotional state in order to gain her loyalty.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/BenPronsky, Creator/BenDiskin (vocal effects in Season 1), [[spoiler:Creator/FredTatasciore (Max Modell in ''Maximum Venom'')]]

A substance found in outer space, with properties that enhance Spider-Man's powers and webbing.
----
* AdaptedOut: One of the abilities the Venom Suit gave to its hosts was [[spoiler:Spider-Man's identity. Flash Thompson was the host in season 1, but doesn't know who is Spider-Man. Subverted once Eddie Brock was the host in season 2, retaining the knowledge of Spider-Man's identity]].
* AdaptationalVillainy: Most iterations of Venom are only villainous as a result of absorbing the negative thoughts and emotions of their previous hosts and typically only fixate on Peter Parker and Eddie at most. [[spoiler:This version is revealed in ''Maximum Venom'' to actually be a scout for a full-blown AlienInvasion.]]
* AliensAreBastards: [[spoiler:It's revealed in "Web of Venom" that it intentionally crash landed on Earth to signal an AlienInvasion.]]
* ArcVillain: The V-252 itself in season 1 takes center stage in "Sandman", "Symbiotic Relationship" and "Stark Expo" before being separated by Peter and returns five episodes later in "Venom". In season 2, [[spoiler:Venom bonds with Eddie]] for "Dead Man's Party" and "Venom Returns".
* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: Being trapped in a jar for over 3 years and being experimented on has likely made the V-252 not very friendly towards humans. [[spoiler:Venom kidnaps Max Modell, Gwen Stacy and Anya Corazon to get revenge in "Venom Returns" and points out the mistreatment in "Superior".]]
* TheCorrupter: Peter gradually loses his moral compass and starts getting more aggressive and egotistical, the more the Venom Symbiote is bonded.
* EvilSoundsDeep: As per tradition with the character, his voice (as [[spoiler:Eddie-Venom]]) is particularly deep, with an alien filter on top.
* FinalBoss: Venom serves as the final villain of ''Maximum Venom'' and pretty much the entire series overall.
* InterimVillain: In season 2, Venom takes over as the main villain when Doctor Octopus is put in a coma. Once Venom is defeated, Doc Ock returns to BigBad status.
* KnightOfCerebus: Same as it was in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'', his presence often darkens the show's fairly lighthearted tone, [[spoiler:especially after bonding with Eddie]].
* JaggedMouth: When it causes Peter to lash out at Aunt May, it forms a serrated mouth. In all subsequent appearances, it has it on full-time often alongside MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Accompanied by a [[DarkReprise distorted, slightly off-key]] version of Spider-Man's theme.
* MythologyGag: Venom's appearance when bonded to [[spoiler:Flash Thompson matches his first monstrous form from the comics, and Eddie Brock matches Mac Gargan's form in the comics]].
* PowerEchoes: This series marks the first time effects are added to Peter's voice when he wears the V-252 as a costume instead of just limiting it to Venom.
* SignificantDoubleCasting: Venom has the same voice actor as [[spoiler:Flash Thompson in "Venom" and Eddie Brock in "Dead Man's Party" and "Venom Returns"]].
* SpotTheImposter: A villainous example in "Superior" where, while seeking revenge on the web-slinger's rejection, the Venom symbiote clashes with [[spoiler:Superior Spider-Man]] at Midtown High; [[spoiler:its new ability to interface with people's memories leads it to realize that it had not been fighting Peter but Otto Octavius [[{{Sucksessor}} who it dismisses as a fraud]]]].
* SuddenlyVoiced: He has his first speaking role in "Dead Man's Party" when he's bonded to [[spoiler:Eddie]], whereas he didn't speak in his self-titled episode while bonded to Flash.
* TheSymbiote: It is a black, amorphous entity that bonds to a host who it augments at the cost of turning into a vicious monster.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:After having been experimented on, it now has the ability to communicate with its host, and has a much higher resistance toward loud noises, previously the Venom symbiote's most easily exploitable weakness.]]
** He's revealed to have taken another one in "Superior". [[spoiler:Not only does he have much more control over his body, he also ''doesn't need a host''. In addition, he can forcibly bond himself to others in order to use their memories. He's effectively an EldritchAbomination at this point.]]
* TheVoiceless: Unlike most versions, Venom attached to [[spoiler:Flash]] doesn't speak and only hisses and roars. This is averted when Venom speaks due to being attached on [[spoiler:Eddie]].
* {{Yandere}}: If he wasn't before, he is definitely this by "Superior". [[spoiler:When he confronts Peter, he sounds very much like a jilted lover.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: A non-lethal variation. As soon as Venom has evolved past needing a host, it abandons Eddie [[spoiler:and later Curt Connors after escaping from Horizon High]].

A bitter ex-employee of Tony Stark.
----
* CripplingOverspecialization: After taking a key part of Iron Man's armor, he takes control of all the technology at the Stark Expo he's currently in. He's eventually taken down when Spider-Man puts on the V-252, which Ghost can't control due to it being organic, and quickly loses the fight.

[[caption-width-right:350:]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/TroyBaker

The host and star of "Kraven's Amazing Hunt" who is hired by Norman to hunt down Spider-Man.
----
* AdaptationalComicRelief: While still an adept hunter, he's fond of constantly plugging his show and at one point gives Peter an ''autograph''.
* ArtificialLimbs: This version has a robotic right arm, unlike his other versions.
* BrokenPedestal: Played for comedy; Miles used to be a big fan of his show, and is understandably disappointed when Kraven decides to go after them.
* CompositeCharacter: This version's based off of his initial appearance in the ''Ultimate Spider-Man'' comics, having a reality TV show, but has the combat proficiency of the 616 counterpart. His appearance also evokes how his second son Alyosha looked when fighting ComicBook/ThePunisher.
* DreadlockWarrior: He has rather [[{{WesternAnimation/Tarzan}} Tarzan-like]] hair as befitting a skilled [[EgomaniacHunter big game hunter]].
* EgomaniacHunter: ''Very'' egomaniacal.
* EyeScream: He has an unexplained scar over his left eye, possibly an occupational hazard.
* HonorBeforeReason: After being humiliated by Peter and Miles, he decides to outright try and kill the two, and almost passes them up on saving his life on the basis he failed, and that he deserved to die.
* LargeHam: One of the most LaughablyEvil villains on the show due to how theatrical he is, unable to resist talking to the camera and advertising products from his show at any given moment. Troy Baker is put to good use here.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He bears a striking resemblance towards Creator/DannyTrejo.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: He's got a slightly more exaggerated, cartoonish appearance than the rest of the cast, most notably his [[FangsAreEvil sharp teeth]].
* WorthyOpponent: In "Spider-Island Part 3", Peter gives him such a good fight that, after losing, Kraven gives an autographed photo.

[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hqdefault_691.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/TrevorDevall

A petty thug who gets an ice gauntlet Peter and Harry created, and becomes a supervillain.
----
* AdaptedOut: The first two versions of Blizzard (Gregor Shapanka and Donald Gill) are unmentioned, making it appear that Randall Macklin is the identity's bearer in this continuity.
* AnIcePerson: The ice gauntlet he gets allows him to create a field of ice around himself, make an icy PoweredArmor, and also freeze over New York.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He's a ''lot'' more dangerous once he starts getting the hang of the gauntlet's abilities.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Given that Hammerhead insisted on treating him like a regular mook, after giving Randall the idea behind being a supervillain, along with Hammerhead's already previously seen emotional manipulation of Keemia, it's hard to not see Randall's actions as at least somewhat karmic.
* MundaneUtility: Inverted. That gauntlet he stole from Peter and Harry? It was created for the purpose of ''refrigerating food'', but became unexpectedly powerful after a gem was put in it, and Randall decided to use it to freeze over New York instead.
* NoOntologicalInertia: The gauntlet alters his body as he uses it, with the right side of his hair being snow white, an icicle growing out of his shoulder, and having clearly blue veins, but having it removed immediately changes him back.
* NotWearingTights: He did not bother wearing a costume after becoming a Supervillain.
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: Blizzard is traditionally an ''ComicBook/IronMan'' villain, but the character's spotlight episode doesn't feature Iron Man in any way, and also ties his origin story to an invention Peter and Harry created. His comic counterpart never even tangled with Spider-Man in the first place.

A thug working for Hammerhead who can mimic the properties of anything he touches.
----
* AlliterativeName: '''C'''arl '''C'''reel.
* AssimilationBackfire: He falls victim to this twice. He first absorbs Spider-Man's webbing to smother him and gets a face full of web dissolvent causing him pain, then he absorbs lithium ([[KillItWithWater which reacts badly to water]]) and when Spider-Man [[DeadlyDodging tricks him into touching water]] he starts [[BodyHorror buddling then dissolves to liquid]].
* DumbMuscle: He is pretty stupid, seeing as he didn't know some of the stuff Hammerhead was talking about and went onto Screwball's site to complain about Spidey while around Hammerhead.
* EpicFlail: As is tradition for Absorbing Man, he carries a wrecking ball and the chain it's attached to use as a weapon.
* PowerCopying: He can mimic the properties of any substances he touches.
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: Usually a foe of Thor and the Hulk, this version's fighting Spider-Man and encountered Hawkeye at one point.

* TheFaceless: She is never shown outside her armor.
* PoweredArmor
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: Usually an ''ComicBook/IronMan'' villain, this version is fighting Spider-Man. Justified since the series features Iron Man.
* SamusIsAGirl: Due to the shape and size of her armor, Spidey mistakes her for a man in their first encounter.
* UnskilledButStrong: She stole the Crimson Dynamo armor, and Octavius hypothesizes that she only knows how the suit works at least at its most basic, but the suit is still powerful enough to knock around Spider-Man and Octavius.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/YuriLowenthal

A scientist at Osborn Academy trying to find a way to regrow his arm.
----
* AdaptationDeviation: This version's missing his left arm, not the right one like other incarnations.
* AdaptationDyeJob: His comics counterpart and other media versions is usually depicted with short, brown hair while this version's hair is blonde and long.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Downplayed. He's the same TragicVillain as in other incarnations, but works for Oscorp, a company that is distinctly established to be very shady. [[spoiler:It's less downplayed in his return in ''Maximum Venom'', where he's willingly acting as TheMole for Norman Osborn and unleashes the Technovore and frames Grady before proceeding to oust Max from Horizon High by orchestrating a series of disasters to make Max come off as reckless and irresponsible. Admittedly, it's later revealed that he did so under Norman's orders because he was that desperate to cure his Lizard condition, but he seems shockingly gleeful about getting Max fired from Horizon.]]
* AllForNothing: [[spoiler:He spends quite some time doing a number of terrible things for Norman trying to get a full cure for his Lizard condition once he restores his benefactor. In the end, the Dark Goblin decides not to honor their bargain and stabs Connors in the back, rendering all of his hard work for naught.]]
* AlliterativeName: '''C'''urt '''C'''onnors.
* ArtEvolution: [[spoiler:His Lizard form in ''Maximum Venom'' seems to have gone through a major change, such as his scales having a lighter shade of green and his back having a darker shade of the same color.]]
* ArtificialLimbs: This version has a prosthetic arm, just like his [[WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan other animated counterpart]].
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Doc Ock's "cure" ends up enlarging him into a giant ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}''-like monster.
%%* BatmanGambit
* TheBusCameBack: After his singular appearance in Season 1, he returns in ''Maximum Venom'' as a new instructor at Horizon High.
* DemotedToExtra: Most adaptations are Peter Parker's teacher, and often acts as Spidey's scientific advisor. This version has no such connections even after he's a new instructor at Horizon.
* TheDragon: [[spoiler:To Norman Osborn in ''Maximum Venom''.]]
* HateSink: [[spoiler:He seems to have officially wandered into this territory as of "Spider-Man Unmasked". He is ''gleeful'' about Max getting fired from Horizon after the Symbiote invasion. In fact, he pressures Peter into revealing being Spider-Man. Ultimately zig-zagged as it's later revealed that he did everything under Norman's orders because Norman was dangling a supposed cure over his head, but he doesn't seem all too remorseful about the horrible things he did to get it.]]
* HealingFactor: He is able to re-grow his tail.
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler:He outs Max for conducting a dangerous symbiote project within the school, but he later proceeds to create an experiment that's far more deadly.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: A major one to Peter and Max.
* JerkassHasAPoint: His attitude may be uncouth, but Connors has a point that Spider-Man’s presence in Horizon High has attracted a lot of trouble and Max’s projects have been dangerous.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: [[spoiler:After getting away with having Max fired and forcing Peter to unmask as Spider-Man and be removed from school grounds, he learns that there was no way for him to cure his Lizard transformation. Adding to that, his deeds get exposed to the school board who have the position of principal returned to Max.]]
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:During Max's hearing, he repeatedly bad mouths Peter. He even openly reveals the kid's identity as Spider-Man in front of everyone.]]
* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler:For all the things he did to Spider-Man and Max just so he could be cured, Connors is transformed back into the Lizard. He even loses his position as the principal of Horizon High, which is given back to Max.]]
* PermaStubble: He sports a prominent five-o-clock shadow.
* ProfessorGuineaPig: [[spoiler:Subverted]]; when introduced, he initially is presented as being this just like in the comics, but [[spoiler:this is later revealed to be a lie; Obsorn was the one who injected him with the lizard formula and used it to blackmail him]].
* PsychoticSmirk: [[spoiler:He does this twice in "Spider-Man Unmasked": one from when Spider-Man unmasks himself to be Peter Parker; and two when he gains the position of intern principal from Max.]]
* SwissArmyWeapon: His prosthetic arm can hack into control panels, [[spoiler:which he uses to infiltrate Max's secret lab with the artificial symbiote]].
* TragicVillain: As usual, though with a twist. This version is introduced as having the same origin than usual, but it's eventually revealed [[spoiler:''Norman'' was the one who willingly turned him into a lizard, then used the promise of a perfected formula to regrow his arm to blackmail him. Connors still is blatantly not comfortable with the situation, though, and begs Norman to stop. And then he becomes another unwilling host for Venom at the start of Season 3, though he's a lot less sympathetic with just how much seeming pleasure he takes in having Max removed from Horizon High and his general lack of remorse towards the terrible things he has done, even if it was all to cure his condition]].
* TyrantTakesTheHelm: [[spoiler:In "Spider-Man Unmasked", he is given full control of Horizon High by the Head Administrator. While he does allow Peter to continue his studies, he forbids him from stepping on school grounds as Spider-Man. In "Generations", the atmosphere at Horizon High is noticeably darker as he implements stricter rules. Thankfully, he loses that position after Norman's confession is recorded and Max is reinstated at the school.]]

* AxeCrazy: To quote Spider-Man, "this guy is crazy even by supervillain standards".
* EvilIsHammy
* ExactWords: When asking "Trick or Treat" to Spider-Man, Spidey complains there is no point in answering, since all he ever gives is tricks. Jack O'Lantern, however, assures Spidey it'll be a treat this time - and then proceeds to shoot [[AbnormalAmmo a gun that fires candies]].
* LaughingMad: Constantly laughing, and quite insane.
* PsychopathicManchild: Despite being apparently a full-grown man, he has a childish obsession with Halloween, constantly throwing puns based on it and acting gleeful when asked "Trick or treat".

* BadassNormal: He is a regular human who relies entirely on a high-tech gear, yet can give trouble even to the super-powered Spider-Man.
* BrainsAndBrawn: With him being the Brawn; by his own admission, he is no scientist, just a muscle; his gear was developed by his brother.
* CompositeCharacter: It's Hobie Brown but wears Aaron Davis's costume.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:After Spider-Man helped him save his brother from Silvermane, he gives up supervillainy and starts considering a career as a superhero.]]
* IOweYouMyLife: Decides to let Spider-Man go once the latter saves him from a malfunction of his own gear.
* LogicalWeakness: He doesn't build his own gear, his brother does; as a result, when his brother is held prisoner by Silvermane, he is unable to fix his equipment, leaving him vulnerable to the slightest malfunction.
* NobleDemon: Despite being a supervillain, he does have something of a code; namely, he refuses to take down Spider-Man after the latter risked his life to save his.

----
* AdaptationalWimp: Unlike either of the comic incarnations who have superpowers, this version has to rely on tech with a low budget, which she frequently ends up having to fix mid-fight against Spider-Man. When she ends up stealing an amplifier Peter created, she's much more in-line with how powerful the comics character can be, with her later appearance in prison suggesting that she's now a metahuman after her first appearance.
* AgeLift: This version's a teenager as opposed to her original incarnation being an adult woman.
* AlliterativeName: '''F'''rancine '''F'''rye.
* AxeCrazy: Not ''quite'' as insane as Jack O'Lantern, but she is quite gleeful about going on rampage and blowing everything up with lightning.
* CompositeCharacter: This version is [[LegacyCharacter Francine Frye]] but has an EnergyBeing form similar to the Ultimate incarnation of Max Dillon and being black might also be from ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' version who is also an Engineer.
* ElectricBlackGuy: Or rather girl.
* PsychoElectro: In case the name wasn't a hint, she has power over electricity, and is quite insane and destructive.
* RaceLift: Her comic counterpart is Caucasian but this version is African-American.
* ShoutOut: One of her attacks, putting her hand against the ground to form a sort of blade made of lightning, resembles the [[{{Manga/Naruto}} Raikiri technique]].

** During his proper introduction, the Chameleon messes with Spider-Man by [[spoiler:impersonating Chief Watanabe and J. Jonah Jameson]].
** [[spoiler:In "Generations", he nearly fooled Spider-Girl while impersonating his target's stepsister]].

* MythologyGag: This version's holographic disguises serve as an homage to his [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries previous animated counterpart]], only that he uses his mask instead of a belt.
* RedHerring: Invoked; [[spoiler:he pretends to be the mastermind behind the bounty on Spider-Man's head, thus allowing the actual mastermind to catch everyone off-guard once he's imprisoned]].

He's like his counterpart with in having provoking encounters with the Superior Spider-Man, sports his own son's likeness and place as Alchemax's CEO, and takes the roles of Marshall (in Earth-616) and Roxxon (in ''ComicBook/UltimateMarvel'') in being behind Cloak and Dagger through his experiments.

A mysterious villain who has the powers of other supervillains held in the Cellar, a maximum security supervillain prison.
----
* AdaptationalVillainy: His comics counterpart did what he did because he lost his family in the crossfire of a superhero/supervillain battle, which incited deep resentment in him, and drove him to become the only hero the world would need. [[spoiler:This version hates heroes because his father was a criminal (a fact he is well aware of) who was arrested and locked up thanks to the Avengers.]]
* AllYourPowersCombined: Regent's armor utilizes the powers of people imprisoned in the Cellar: Mr. Negative's [[CastingAShadow darkforce manipulation]], Molten Man's [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinesis]], Electro's [[ShockAndAwe electricity]], Sandgirl's [[DishingOutDirt sand manipulation]], Cloak's [[ThinkingUpPortals portal creation]], Dagger's [[LightEmUp hard light weapons]], Frostbite's [[AnIcePerson cryokinesis]], Whirlwind's [[BlowYouAway aerokinesis]], and Paradox's green {{Hand Blast}}s.

-> '''Voiced by''': Creator/AlexDesert

Miles's kind-hearted father. [[spoiler:He is later a supervillain made up of robotic bees who runs an underground gladiator arena.]]
----
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: His comic counterpart (a generally nice guy) detested mutants and other superhumans--though this was understandable as it was the ''ComicBook/UltimateMarvel'' universe where everyone is given the AdaptationalJerkass or even AdaptationalVillainy but he did warm to the Ultimate Spider-Man's alter ego some time [[spoiler:after learning it was his son]]. This version's actually okay with Spidey and his son's alter ego from the start. [[spoiler:Subverted in ''Maximum Venom'', where he dons the Swarm identity to get revenge on the Spider-Men for endangering his neighborhood -- though he's arguably still this as the original Swarm (Fritz von Meyer) was a literal Nazi.]]
* AdaptationalVillainy: [[spoiler:While his original counterpart was a former agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. with some code of morals who turned to a life of crime while undercover, this version turns into a supervillain.]]
* AdaptationalWimp: This depiction is a normal civilian. [[spoiler:This gets subverted later on when he takes on the Swarm identity.]]
* CompositeCharacter: His role as [[spoiler:Swarm]] resembles [[spoiler:Aaron Davis (rather than his comic counterpart) in being a supervillain related to Miles with purple in his costume, with the gold being a bit close to his brother's Iron Spider armor]].
* DarthVaderClone: [[spoiler:As Swarm, he wears dark and menacing armor, however, he is the one who gets more shocked when he discovers his son is the one he's attacking.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: [[spoiler:He is the only member of Osborn's recruits who wasn't informed about either of Team Spider's identities. It is only until Miles unmasks himself that Jefferson realizes the error of his ways.]]
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:Miles's father is revealed to be Swarm.]]

* RevengeBeforeReason: [[spoiler:He was ''so'' enraged that his neighborhood, and thus his son, was endangered in a superhuman fight that he accepted a deal with Norman Osborn to become a supervillain and destroy the heroes, even though the villains are the main problem (especially with Osborn [[GreaterScopeVillain being behind most of them]]). He even ran an underground fight club where he mutated innocent people into more dangerous monsters and forced them to fight to the death against their will.

----
* AllThereInTheManual: According to a video called "The Secret History of Venom", the Symbiote Sisters were the first of their kind created by a being called Knull.
* AdaptationalBackstoryChange: Scream, Scorn and Mania had completely different origins on the comic books, with the first being one of Venom's children, the second being one of Carnage's offsprings, and the third being a clone of the Venom symbiote. Here, they are the first symbiotes created and were the ones who created Venom, the World-Killer and the Klyntar.
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: They are introduced in the last episode of ''Maximum Venom''.

* BirthDeathJuxtaposition: After her death, [[spoiler:her living abyss was used to create the Venom symbiote and a symbiote-dragon]].
* PosthumousCharacter: She was killed [[spoiler:by an elder alien prior to the series, leaving only her sisters]].

!!Scream
-> '''Voiced by''': Meg Donnelly
----
* AdaptationalBadass: Her comics counterpart would usually be defeated by Venom solidly and she didn't do so hot either whenever she had to fight Spider-Man. This version is shown to be a much higher-ranking symbiote who can overpower and give marching orders to Venom.
* [[AdaptationalNiceGuy Adaptational Nice Girl]]: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-zagged]]. Her comics counterpart or rather her host Donna Diego was mentally unstable and murdered her own symbiote friends and companions. This incarnation, outside of harshly disciplining Venom, is loyal to her sisters and the symbiote cause from the get-go... which in turn has [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt very bad implications for the rest of humanity and Earth]].

----
Horizon High's headmaster and founder who recognizes Peter's potential and recruits him in his school.
----
* AlliterativeName: '''M'''ax '''M'''odell.
* CharacterTitle: [[spoiler:He is the "Maximum" in "Maximum Venom".]]
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Inverted. He tends to make a ''lot'' of enemies with the people he makes ties with, and then they turn on him.
* FatalFlaw: Max's biggest problem is that once he gets an idea in his head, he will not be convinced he might be wrong until it blows up in his face. Norman has exploited this a few times to further his own agenda by making both Harry and Otto look bad in Max's eyes and start creating tension between them. Making things worse is that, while he has enough grace to admit when he has been wrong, he tends to swing to the other side of the spectrum from his initial choices rather than learn that his doubling down might not be the best idea.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:It's revealed in "Web of Venom", that early in his life he was caught in an accident and someone got hurt helping him. This trauma stuck with him and became the reason for his obsession with believing V-252 could people, so no one would have to get hurt again.]]
* GloryHound: He's accused of being this by several characters, such as Norman, and "Stark Expo" shows a grain of truth to this sentiment; he ignores Peter's concerns that the V-252 is alive, because he's too concerned with proving it can be on the periodic table. After Spider-Man uses the suit, proving once and for all that it's a symbiotic organism, he's quick to admit he got too obsessed with it, to the point of ignoring his students.
* InkSuitActor: He looks like Fred Tatasciore, with a beard.
* TheMentor: To Peter, being the one who acknowledges his potential and takes him to Horizon High.
* OutOfFocus: He stops showing up as frequently after the Venom arc in Season 1, with more focus going to Peter and his relationship with Harry and the other Spider-Heroes.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: The main authority at Horizon High, and overall a rather reasonable and well-meaning kind of guy.
* RedHerring: [[spoiler:Peter believes he has become the host for the V-252. Turns out he's wrong.]]

----
* AdaptationDyeJob: His comic counterpart and most iterations are usually a brunet before being the Rhino. This version is a redhead.
* AdaptationalHeroism: This version is a pretty fun guy to be around, and is rather nice to the other Horizon students, and also didn't willingly turn into the Rhino. His comics counterpart was already a thug and volunteered to turn into the Rhino.
* AdaptationalIntelligence: His comics counterpart was a DumbMuscle thug while this version is a {{Teen Genius}} before he's the Rhino.
* AdaptationalWimp: This version of Rhino is nowhere near as tough as past incarnations of the character, being little more than a humanoid brute with the mind of an animal. Against Spider-Man, he doesn't even get in a single hit in their short fight.
* BalefulPolymorph: Was forced to being the Rhino.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Becomes a member of the Sinister Five with a mind control device in his neck.]]
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodeNames: An animated example. Aleksei is never referred to as the Rhino at all.
* InNameOnly: Just like Shocker and Clash, this version of Rhino has nothing in common with his comic book counterpart and most versions outside of his name, powers, and nationality.
* NeverTrustATrailer: This version, much like his ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'' counterpart, is a teenager mutated into a more Rhino-like appearance. However, [[https://static3.comicvine.com/uploads/original/4/46646/5813593-6718589659-15403.jpg a poster to promote the show]] features the traditional thug in a Rhino costume.

A student at Midtown High.
----
* AbledInTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:Much like his version in ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'', Flash Thompson still use the full use of his legs when he bonds to the Venom symbiote, unlike his counterpart of the comics who was an adult soldier who lost the use of his legs in battle before being Agent Venom.]]
* AdaptationalIntelligence: '''Heavily''' downplayed compared to the rest of the cast, but this version is at least interested enough in science to build a decent soda volcano and enter a science expo with it, whereas the comics version would have never engaged in any activity of the sort.
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Played with, Flash is most famous for being TheBully to Peter Parker, and rarely does he grow out of this phase in adaptations. Here, he has the same past of bullying Peter but by the time the show takes place he has eased off.
* BoisterousBruiser: Somewhat downplayed compared to his previous incarnation in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'', but only because this version has considerably lesser screen-time at this point then his prior version did especially as Agent Venom. He still manages to showcase this trope in his one focus episode so far, both during [[spoiler:the temporary point when he's bonded to the Venom Symbiote]] and the climax after during the football game. Also, fact that he's mellowed from explicitly bullying Peter outside keeping his "[[HiddenHeartOfGold street cred]]", he's more receptive to being this from the onset compared to his prior incarnation who had to [[CharacterDevelopment grow into being this]].
* CompositeCharacter: He is [[spoiler:Venom's original host instead of Eddie Brock. Although Flash himself did eventually be Venom in the comics.]] His interest is science (and lack of actually being good at it) might've also come from his ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'' counterpart. Also, he sports a similar buzzcut to the one sported by his ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries'' incarnation.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: He has blond hair, but it is unknown if his skin is tan.
* DisqualificationInducedVictory: Parodied; [[spoiler:his soda volcano ends up winning the Stark Expo despite being by far the least impressive project, solely because Ghost happened to wreck all the other inventions]].
* DumbJock: This version plays up the fact he isn't particularly smart. Granted, the fact he's a normal teenager in a show where the large majority of the cast are super-geniuses doesn't help.
* JerkJock: Downplayed; he is portrayed as not particularly smart and a bit cocky, but his bullying days are behind him.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He still occasionally picks on Peter, at one point saying he has to keep up appearances, but a lot of it is mostly lighthearted ribbing, and he's quick to defend Peter after two people try to pick on Peter after tutoring Flash because it saved Midtown.
* MythologyGag: [[spoiler:Venom using him as a host seems to be a reference to his Agent Venom role in both the comics and the previous show.]]
** [[spoiler:His cameo as a Spider-Creature is likely a reference to his Spider-King impersonation.]]
* OddFriendship: He's a slightly rough jock and kind of a meathead but is on amicable terms with the nice, nerdy Peter Parker, even before Peter started tutoring Flash.
* RaceLift: Possibly; he was white in the comic while he is AmbiguouslyBrown here.
* ReformedBully: Flash by the time the story takes place has given up his former bullying ways. Even more so in "Venom"--he started out being hard on Peter due to being a nerd he can solicit help from, but Peter's tutoring saved his life, so he stood up for Peter in the end.
* TookALevelInKindness: Although Flash has nowadays has stopped tormenting Peter, he still gave Peter a hard time when he asked Peter to tutor him in chemistry, as the only thing that mattered to him was being able to play in the football game. Ultimately, what he learned from Peter did save his life and the school, and he has been grateful ever since.
* WisdomFromTheGutter: Flash of all people [[spoiler:manages to get Otto Octavius [[ItMakesSenseInContext (in Peter's body)]] to reconsider the Superior Spider-Man's actions by voicing his disapproval for the Superior Spider-Man's approach to criminals and telling Otto that being a hero is more than just keeping crime rates down]].

* ButHeSoundsHandsome: Being directly asked about Screwball always gets a compliment for Screwball.
* CompositeCharacter: The two are separate characters in the comics, but this version has Screwball as Liz's alter ego.
* ForWantOfANail: She almost became the one with spider powers. Had she not have realized that she was left-handed at the last second before switching places with Peter in ''Origins'', the radioactive spider would've landed on her hand and bitten her instead of Peter.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Liz is popular in Midtown, had one of the highest grades and is a student body president. But after the arrival of schools such as Horizon High and Osborn Academy where students smarter than she attended, she realized that her achievements were no longer enough.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's not the best person ever but she does ultimately want to do good.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A clownish, out-of-sync, theme plays whenever she performs her pranks.
* MotiveDecay: She did her Screwball shtick to prank major corporations that were doing bad things, but upon finding out that pranking Spider-Man gave her a lot of views, she decides to keep making videos about Spider-Man, which she stops after she realizes it put everyone in trouble.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Deconstructed; she used to be a pretty important student in Midtown High, but the arrival of Horizon High and Osborn creating his own school brought multiple {{Teen Genius}}es in the spotlight, leaving her OvershadowedByAwesome. Becoming Screwball partially was a way to make her special again, though she still was trying to do good before MotiveDecay kicked in.

* BirdsOfAFeather: With [[spoiler:Otto Octavius]]. Both of them are ambitious and intellectually gifted people who were ostracized for their physical statures. This is partly what draws [[spoiler:Otto]] to her.
* MoralityPet: She's probably the first person that [[spoiler:Otto]] treats with upmost kindness and respect, [[spoiler:and ultimately the one to push him towards cementing his HeelFaceTurn]].

An aspiring inventor who applies for Osborn University alongside his friend Cole. He invented a set of vibro-shock gauntlets named the Shockers.
----
* AdaptationOriginConnection: He's the best friend of Clayton Cole/Clash in this show.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Most versions of Shocker are criminals, this version of Herman Schultz is just a high school student and he gives Spider-Man advice by telling the weakness of Clayton's suit when the Jackal took their gear.
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames: An animated example. Herman is never referred to as Shocker. However, he does use the code name for his invention.
* InNameOnly: Has nothing in common with his comic book counterpart outside of his name and invention.

-> '''Voiced by''': Bob Joles
The Daily Bugle's editor-in-chief who has a strong dislike of Spider-Man.
----
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: A minor one, but in the comics, J.J. pretty much hated all masked superheroes with the exception of Captain America. Here, however, he's often calling the Avengers real heroes and his dislike only seems to be directed at Spider-Man, his reason being that the Avengers all made their identities public while Spider-Man didn't.
* AdaptationalJerkass: In the comics, Jameson suspected Peter had some kind of connection to Spider-Man due to him being the only one who could get good pictures of the webslinger, but he didn't hold it against. When Peter "confesses" that he and Spider-Man have a similar connection, Jameson fires him on the spot.
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Combined with AdaptationPersonalityChange, while he's not a saint by any means, he's still a somewhat more reasonable person than his comic book counterpart and most versions.
* BullyingADragon: On at least two occasions when he's been face to face with Spidey, he's attempted to make a "citizen's arrest", in spite of the fact that Spider-Man has SuperStrength and could easily snap him in half if he were really the "menace" Jameson believes him to be.
* {{Hypocrite}}:
** After spending most of time ranting about how Spider-Man is a "menace" who needs to be locked up, "The Day Without Spider-Man" shows him complaining when Spider-Man is a no-show, claiming that he's "more of a menace" when he doesn't show up.
** [[spoiler:Despite hating Spider-Man for not being a "real hero", when the Superior Spider-Man shows up at his office and makes his AntiHero ways clear, Jameson actually ''approves'' of it.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: As usual in most incarnations. This version takes it up a notch by flat-out bullying some of his employees [[spoiler:and outright fires Peter believing he's connected to Spider-Man without hearing the boy out]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: It's not too noticeable, but he has his moments. He's actually somewhat cordial with Peter when he proves his worth when getting good footage of Spider-Man, and is less prone to yelling at him than with Eddie Brock.
* LargeHam: He's not over the top for nothing.
* MeanBoss: At the end of the day, he will not consider the opinions of any of his employees, and he's definitely dismissive of Peter Parker speaking of Spider-Man in a good light. When Peter complains about how he's not being truthful, Jameson tells him to get on board or get out.
* NeverMyFault: He refuses to admit that he had a part in Eddie's transformation into Venom, even though both Spider-Man and Venom rightfully tell him otherwise.
* NoIndoorVoice: Communicates by shouting, both on TV and to his employees.
* UngratefulBastard: Just like Harry in season 1, he does not show appreciation towards Spider-Man for saving him from Venom and only bashes him further.

[[folder:Eddie Brock]]
!!Edward "Eddie" Brock
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eddie_brock.JPG]]
-> '''Voiced by''': Ben Pronsky
A photographer for the ''Daily Bugle'' who has had a hard time getting footage of Spider-Man.
----
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Eddie Brock is just a down-on-his-luck and less-than-competent photographer that's forced to endure a lot of undeserved crap from [[BadBoss J. Jonah Jameson]], and Peter Parker (while having sympathetic reasons for doing so) ''is'' taking Eddie's job from him. This gives Eddie more understandable reasons to hate him compared where his original counterpart wrote a series of sensationalist interviews with a supposed serial killer for weeks before actually going to the authorities and hates Spidey for catching the real serial killer and causing him to lose his reputation and job.
* DestinedBystander: His early appearances are unvoiced and he doesn't get much focus until Peter begins working at the Daily Bugle and starts inadvertently scooping him on Spider-Man stories. Of course by this point, the Venom symbiote has long been established.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He makes an unvoiced appearance early in Season 2, trying to record Spider-Man.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Implied. When the Venom Symbiote begins to come off of him, he begs it not to leave because he doesn't want to be "nothing".
* NeverMyFault: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] compared to the original comics version; this version does show an inability to acknowledge his own flaws, such as lacking any real talent as a photographer, being sleazy in his day-to-day maintenance and hygiene, or being something of an all-around creep. On the other hand, Eddie does have a dedicated work ethic and never commits any form of journalistic fraud. Meanwhile Peter (for all his understandable reasons for doing so) ''is'' using fraudulent pictures to take Eddie's job from him, and Jameson ''does'' treat him like garbage in a way Eddie doesn't deserve. That being said, Eddie to some degree is aware of how others perceive him and mid-VillainousBreakdown admits he feels like nothing without the Venom Symbiote.
* TheResenter: He hates Peter for [[VillainHasAPoint stealing his job]]. [[spoiler:This hatred allows the Venom symbiote to sympathize with him and the two to bond.]]
* StalkerWithoutACrush: Obviously stalks Spider-Man in an attempt to get good photos of the web-slinger, but a far more disturbing case happens with Peter; after [[spoiler:bonding with the Venom symbiote]], he breaks into Peter's room and is found creepily searching through Peter's personal goods and family photos, commenting how he can see Peter's whole life has gone so well.
* VillainHasAPoint: Eddie may not be as good a photographer as he thinks he is, but Peter ''is'' cheating him out of his job with glorified selfies, wittingly or not. [[/folder]]

* BadassNormal: She seems to be just a normal human with enhanced equipment, yet can fight decently against the super-powered Spider-Man.
* LightIsNotGood: Her white hair and light clothing is not much telling of her.
* RealityEnsues: Despite being a rather efficient BadassNormal, she still is a regular human with no apparent enhancement.

* OutOfFocus: Doesn't actually appear all that much in this version, especially compared to Harry, Miles, Anya and Gwen; in fact, she's absent from the majority of episodes.

----
* DeathByOriginStory: Naturally, being part of a Franchise/SpiderMan series, his death is required to push Peter into using these great powers responsibly.
* MoralityChain: [[spoiler:A bizarre example in that he isn't alive yet still plays the role. Otto admits that Peter's memories of Uncle Ben that he obtained during the FreakyFridayFlip are what are keeping Otto from slipping back into evil.]]
* NiceGuy: Flashbacks show him as being supportive of Peter.
* OutOfFocus: Oddly enough, the shorts before the series didn't feature him with an onscreen presence in any way. While the final short covers his death due to Peter's indirect actions, he still doesn't show up at all barring a picture.

* InNameOnly: Just like Shocker in this series, this version of Clayton has nothing in common with his comic book counterpart outside of his name, his general appearance, and his invention. (Since he did create his own sound powers same as his comic counterpart, he's probably more similar than other examples of this Trope in this series, but he's still portrayed a lot more emotionally well-off here [[IneffectualLoner than]] [[LonersAreFreaks in his]] [[IJustWantToBeSpecial comic]] [[TookALevelInJerkass debut]].)

* AdaptationalHeroism: This version is similar to his [[Film/SpiderMan3 film counterpart]], being a loving father for his daughter. He's also willing to use his powers for good from the start instead of using them for committing crimes in order to make ends meet.
* AdaptationalWimp: This version is not ''nearly'' as powerful as his comics counterpart and other versions.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: By the time he goes to rescue Keemia, his daughter's already gotten greater control of their powers than he has, and [[CurbStompBattle utterly trounces him]], albeit in part because he's unwilling to fight back.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:Seemingly the case in his debut episode.]]

----
* CanonForeigner: He doesn't have any counterpart in the comics.
* ExorcistHead: He turns his head 360 degrees like what normal owls do. Even Spider-Man is freaked out by this.
* {{Expy}}: Though likely unintentional, his origin as a boy/teenager who was mutated into a bird-like form by a mad scientist harks very much to that of the second Falcon (Joaquin Torres) introduced in ''ComicBook/NickSpencersCaptainAmerica''. Nocturnal is a bit more [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman noticeably transformed than Falcon is]], though, and doesn't have nearly the same network of support looking after him.
** Given his name, he may also act as a DistaffCounterpart to Angela Cairn/Nocturne, a police officer who was also mutated into a being with a bat-like form by a mad scientist, in this case Baron Zemo.
* HeelFaceTurn: Somewhat; while he's likely still scrounging other people's food in the woods and generally being reclusive, he doesn't have any ill will toward Spider-Man.

* CainAndAbel: Maria is jealous of Anya and tries to kill her stepsister. [[spoiler:Subverted when it's actually the Chameleon impersonating her.]]
* CanonForeigner: She was created exclusively for this series, as her sister didn't have any siblings in the comics.
* CompositeCharacter: She is an amalgamation of minor characters in the comics, visually resembling Lynn (Anya's childhood friend) and [[spoiler:her impersonator]] acted similar to Nina Smith (Anya's armor-equipped antagonist-esque acquaintance).
