  • Fan Nickname - Many.
    • THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-BRO.
    • Doc Ock has two. Pre-breakdown is "D'awwwc Ock", post- is "DOCTOR OCTOPUS, LORD OF THE VAMPIRES". Just watch the episode with the famed opera fight to see what I'm talking about.
    • Due to the various girls that Peter/Spidey attracts, fans have decided to rename the show "BITCHES LOVE SPIDER-MAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES".
  • Hey It's That Voice - Try to watch a whole episode and not recognize at least one character's VA from a different show. The voice actors of this series are on the same level as The Avengers in both quality and quantity:
  • I Knew It! - In the first season, we are introduced to Green Goblin. Most people by now know that Norman Osborn is the Green Goblin, and at first the show didn't do much to deny this, giving several indications that it was he. Then later that season, we were shown that it was in fact Harry Osborn. When Goblin made his return in the second season, the final episodes played up the idea that other people could be the Goblin, giving the audience some very serious misdirection. Even this troper, who is rather well versed in Spider-Man lore, thought that possibly they would change the identity of the Goblin. Of course, all of this was proven to be just subterfuge, as in the final episode it was revealed that the Goblin had, in fact, been Norman Osborn all along.
    • Adding to the confusion, of course, was the fact that Harry Osborn was also the Goblin in the comics for a while.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers - What ultimately did the show in was Sony losing the TV rights following the Disney/Marvel deal to keep the movies rights, but...
  • Screwed by the Network - ...the end of Kids WB and Disney XD waiting until summer to air Season 2 didn't help.
  • What Could Have Been - The show's head honcho, Greg Weisman, had rough plans for a total of 65 episodes (39 more than what we got). He also had plans for Hobgoblin and Scorpion.
    • And there were also rumors about Carnage (Cletus Kassidy was seen in season 2) as well as The Clone Saga (Miles Warren gained full control over Curt Connors' lab at the end of season 2).
    • Weisman's aspirations also included finishing the series with Peter's graduation from High School, then doing four straight to DVD movies, covering Peter's college years.
