* AdaptationalBadass: In most of the comics, Electro is shown as being too incompetent to take the position of BigBad. Here, he's much more competent.

* BossArenaIdiocy: Sandman and [[spoiler:Hyper Electro]] both stage their respective boss fights in locations peppered with sources of the only thing each one is vulnerable to ([[KillItWithWater water pumps]] and [[spoiler:[[HoistByHisOwnPetard power generators]]]], respectively). This is lampshaded in the latter thusly:

** Arguably, Electro's final boss battle is also a subversion: The arena starts off having a massive lightningrod he can use to recharge his health, meaning Spidey has to destroy it, and the engines used to make him vulnerable have several compartments that likewise have to be destroyed first before they can fulfill that purpose.
* TheCameo: The villains of the first game appear in the ending, and Doc Ock is ''still'' beating his head against the bars.

* SequelDifficultySpike: ''Ohh'' yeah.
** Even the Invincibility effect does not help anymore due to how overpowered it was in the prequel video game. Here, Spider-Man's health bar does not decrease but he can "still get hurt" by mere punches and climbing up the wall during one stage without getting away from Electro's electricity attack will still send Spider-Man falling down from the wall and the player has to start all over again.

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Well, sort of, and directed at Spidey. In one early level, you have to put out a fire by using your web yank on a fire hydrant. It's possible to put Spidey directly in the blast zone and watch him get hurdled by the water blast directly into the burning building. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments It's pretty goddamn funny.]]

* AndYourRewardIsClothes: All the costumes from the original, plus Alex Ross's famous ideas for the costume from the movies, Spider-[[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Phoenix]], a version of the ''ComicBook/EarthX'' Venom costume, the black and white Negative Zone costume Spider-Man wore, the nanotech suit from ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManUnlimited'', and an insulated costume worn to fight Electro once. Most of them, as in the first game, have some sort of power-up to abilities, such as infinite webbing or invulnerability, but this time around you can mix-and-match costumes and power-ups.
