* EvilMentor: Cletus Kasidy, the Carnage Killer, is both Peter's first kill with his powers and the most prominent voice in his head, doling out advice and commentary on Peter's situation and makes sure his head is on straight during battle.



* FoeYay: Deliberately invoked with Jessica's MoreThanMindControl abilities, which Peter can resist, but he still can't help but find her incredibly attractive. [[spoiler: As the story progresses, Jessica begins to grow obsessed with Peter not only for his ability to NoSell her powers, but as an equal and potential ''mate''.]]



* WallCrawl

* WallCrawlWallCrawl: It wouldn't be an extended shout-out to the Spider-Man mythos without it.


* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Anna Watson, who in the {{Spider-Man}} comics is an older middle-aged pudgy woman, is depicted here as a highly attractive woman in her mid-thirties.

Added DiffLines:

** And then played straight later in the chapter when MJ recognises the real Peter by his habit of cracking bad jokes under stress. (The imposter had access to Peter's memories, but wasn't a good enough actor to imitate Peter's conversational style.)


* {{Homage}}: There are extended references to ''TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'', particularly in chapters 45 and 46.

Added DiffLines:

* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: In chapter 65 [[spoiler:Peter starts hallucinating things under Jessica's influence. It makes him see the world around him like it's still the 1950s.]]


* AchievementsInIgnorance: Sort of. [[spoiler: By [[EmergencyTransformation activating MJ's dormant HYDRA infection in order to save her]], Peter has managed to succesfully recreate the original Romanov strain, which the Thunderbolts have been trying for the past several decades to do.]]



* AdaptationalVillainy: According to chapter 58 [[spoiler:J. Jonah Jameson is a colonel in the Thunderbolts and apparently as unethical as canon Blackwatch's senior officers.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Yandere}}: [[spoiler: Mary Jane]] is shaping up to be one.

Added DiffLines:
