Added DiffLines:

* CardboardPrison: If defeated, Spidey is taken to a jail designed for normal criminals. There's no way that's going to hold Spider-Man.


* TheHeroDies: In the 'Kingpin wins' ending of the Sega CD version, Kingpin hangs Spider-Man alogside Mary Jane above a pit of acid and lowers to them to their deaths on-screen.

* ColdHam: Kingpin in the Sega CD version actually does not speak in a boisterous, melodramatic tone (that goes to Venom), but instead speaks in a husky, soft tone akin to what would eventually be his incarnation in ''Series/Daredevil2015'' - although, he still has an arsenal of almost cartoonishly evil lines.

Added DiffLines:

* BookEnd: The final level uses the same music as the title screen in the Genesis version.


* ShoutOut: The brief introductory stage serves as one to ''VideoGame/Atari2600SpiderMan'', where Spidey has to scale the facade of a building while avoiding mooks that pop out of windows to knock him off.

* {{Crossover}}: This incarnation of Spider-Man also appeared in Sega's 1989 Genesis game ''VideoGame/TheRevengeOfShinobi'' as a boss. Originally, this was [[LawyerFriendlyCameo unofficial]], to the point of having his suit's design slightly changed. But once Sega got the Spider-Man license in 1990, and granted permission from Marvel to use him in ''Shinobi'', his suit was changed again to match the official design, and stayed that way, until 2009, when he was changed once again, due to Activision and Capcom both holding the Spider-Man game rights.

** The Lizard is conscious all the time and in the paybook of Kingpin in this game. Thankfully, this is rectified in the Sega CD version, whereas the Lizard is once again being Kurt Connors' SuperpoweredEvilSide, and when Kurt regains control of himself, he willingly handed over the key to defuse the bomb before the Lizard took over again. Likewise, the Lizard is no longer part of the boss marathon in the last level unlike the Genesis version.
