* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': The kind and pacifist GirlNextDoor Orihime Inoue looks like a good Betty and the {{Tsundere}} Rukia seems to be a nice Veronica. Ichigo and Rukia are considered more than friends but less than lovers; on the other hand, Orihime already confessed her love for Ichigo but he wasn't conscious at the time to hear. Ichigo is more than willing to scale both Soul Society and Hueco Mundo in order to rescue both of them (in separate arcs) and has the 'other' help participate in the rescue: Orihime is the BarrierWarrior and healer in Soul Society who actually came up with the idea of rescuing Rukia, while Rukia recovers her ActionGirl credentials by the time the Hueco Mundo arc kicks in and joins Ichigo's quest for Orihime heartily. [[spoiler: It turns out that Rukia was TheNotLoveInterest to Ichigo and her romantic feelings [[ChildhoodFriendRomance were for her childhood friend Renji]] instead; Ichigo is seen HappilyMarried to Orihime.]]

* In ''Manga/GokinjoMonogatari'', one of the main characters, [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Yuusuke]], is involved in a LoveTriangle with wild and [[HelloNurse sexy]] MsFanservice Mariko and his 'GirlNextDoor'-ish ExtremeDoormat classmate, Ayumi. Since this is a [[Manga/{{Nana}} Yazawa]] [[Manga/ParadiseKiss Ai]] manga, things [[{{Deconstruction}} don't quite look as stereotypical as they can be described]]...

* ''Anime/{{Voltron}}'' has a male version. Boy Scout Keith (Betty) and Evil Prince Lotor (Veronica) both love Princess Allura. But Allura only loves Keith- so this may actually be a subversion. Some fans try to pair up Allura with the rebellious Lance (Veronica)- but in the canon anime and other series they show absolutely no interest whatsoever in each other.

** As shown in the image at the top of the page, Ranma is the Archie to Akane's Betty and Shampoo's Veronica. Although this being an UnwantedHarem situation, it's not so much about Ranma being torn about which one to choose (though he is attracted to both girls, he feels much more attracted to [[NoGuyWantsToBeChased Akane]]), but torn because he's engaged against his will to both women (Akane being an ArrangedMarriage, Shampoo an AccidentalMarriage) and rejecting one in favor of the other [[PillarsOfMoralCharacter would bring lots of trouble for the THREE of them]]. This triangle also includes a ThirdOptionLoveInterest, in the form of UnluckyChildhoodFriend and {{Bokukko}}, Ukyo Kuonji who is ALSO engaged to Ranma.

** Parodied with Tatewaki Kuno who sees himself as an Archie in his delusions. caught between a LoveTriangle between him, Akane, and the Pigtailed Girl. Akane is Betty, the Betty to "the girl he's known longer and has always been close at hand. "The pigtailed girl" (female Ranma)'s Veronica. The fact girl"([[LovesMyAlterEgo female Ranma]]) is Veronica, a mysterious beauty who disappears and reappears like the wind. Of course, Kuno [[SelectiveObliviousness doesn't seem to get]] that neither of them can stand him doesn't deter him at all.the two like him. An episode of the anime also had Kuno consider his [[VitriolicBestBuds vitriolic best bud]], Nabiki, as a ThirdOptionLoveInterest, ultimately leading to Kuno saying he'd MarryThemAll. Unsurprisingly Kuno was turned into ATwinkleInTheSky after say that.

** ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' had Lynn Minmay as the Veronica and Misa Hayase as the Betty. Minmay herself had a similar case, with Hikaru as the Betty and Lynn Kaifunn as the Veronica.
** ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' had a gender-reversed version of the trope, with Gamlin as the Betty and Basara as the Veronica.

to:

** ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' had has IdolSinger Lynn Minmay as the Veronica and BridgeBunny Misa Hayase as the Betty. Minmay herself had has a similar case, with military pilot Hikaru as the Betty and manager/martial artist Lynn Kaifunn as the Veronica.
** ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' had a gender-reversed version of the trope, with dutiful military pilot Gamlin as the Betty Betty, and HotBlooded rock musician Basara as the Veronica.


Added DiffLines:

** ''Anime/MacrossDelta'' plays with this. Sweet-natured PluckyGirl Freyja Wion would ''at first'' seem like the Betty compared to older {{Tsundere}} Mirage Jenius, but the former is an IdolSinger with a fairly rambunctious personality, while the latter is a straight-laced military pilot.

* The ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' anime has a twisted, 'sort of' affection triangle between Alucard, Integra Hellsing, and Seras Victoria that creates an animosity between the women. While Seras looks as the Veronica (being the one with sultry clothes and the newest addition to the Hellsing group) to Integra's Betty (long-standing bond with Alucard and with more tomboyish traits), personality and role wise could be switched: Integra's the Rich Veronica that has Alucard's affection while Reliable Betty Seras longs for it. [[WordOfGod Studio Gonzo]] claims that in the Anime, Alucard actually [[ReplacementGoldfish turned Seras because her eyes reminded him to Integra during her youth]], but he was mistaken. The manga averts this situation with an emphasis on a platonic bond between Alucard and Seras, but curiously adding LesYay subtext between Seras and Integra, and having Pip Bernadotte as Seras' LoveInterest.
