* After the collider causes some lampposts to turn into what looks like bizarrely colorful artpieces, some pedestrians look at one of them while someone remarks "I think it's a Creator/{{Banksy}}".


* The whole bit with Miles wanting a cape, only to be shot down by Peter B's physically yanking the cape off and insisting that Spider-man doesn't wear a cape is an odd scene that seems over-emphasized for such a minor detail...until you realize it's a shout-out to another group of ground-breaking animated superheroes who became famous for "NO CAPES!" -- WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles.

[[WordOfGod according to the director]], [[https://www.thisisinsider.com/spider-man-spider-verse-42-meaning-2019-2 it's a reference]] to UsefulNotes/JackieRobinson's jersey number. It's also directly lifted from Miles' origin story, where both the lottery ball that earns him a scholarship to Brooklyn Visions, and the spider that eventually bites him and gives him his powers, are both conspicuously marked "42".
