* The episode Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' both zig-zagged the trope and played it straight at the same time. Worf (Betty) pined after the conventionally beautyful (Veronica) but traditional (Betty) Grelka, but agreed to help Quark (Archie and Veronica at the same time) to woo her, while being helped of alien and liberal (Veronica) but caring and less conventionally beautyfull (Betty) Jadzia Dax.

* ''Series/{{Victorious}}'': Beck (Archie), his long-term girlfriend Jade (Betty) and the popular Tori (Veronica). Played with in that Jade is more 'dangerous' while Tori is sweet-natured. But the two years Jade and Beck have been together pushes Jade firmly into Betty territory. (Especially as Tori is an exotic new student, who everyone adores and Jade is more of a loner). [[spoiler: Apart from a brief break up, and AlmostKiss with Tori, Beck remains committed to Jade and they end the series still together, happy and in love]]

* ''Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger'' seems to fit this trope, as it features Sousuke as Archie to the sweet, unspoiled Saki (Betty) and the wealthy, shallow drama queen, Miu (Veronica).
** ''Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman'' has Kaori in a love triangle with TroubledButCute Ryuu (Betty) and JerkWithAHeartOfGold Gai (Veronica). [[spoiler:She marries Ryuu in the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue, while Gai gets knifed to death on his way to the wedding. Oh dear.]]

** The Betty (again), to Maya's Veronica (again), Smackle's Cheryl Blossom to Farkle's Archie. Smackle wins.
** The Archie to Farkle's Betty, Lucas' Veronica and [[DoggedNiceGuy Charlie Gardner's]] Cheryl Blossom. Lucas wins. Charlie and Farkle are okay with it as they display the IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy trope.
** In turn, Lucas is the Archie to Riley's Betty and Maya's Veronica. In "Girl Meets Ski Lodge," he realizes [[spoiler: he only liked a Betty-fied (or Riley-fied) version of Maya and truly liked Riley all along.]]

Examples are Trista (Betty) and Amanda (Veronica) on the first season of ''Series/TheBachelor'' and Paige (Betty) and Erin (Veronica) on the first season of ''ForLoveOrForMoney''.

* ''Series/SwitchedAtBirth'' has set this up with Daphne (Betty) declaring her feelings for Emmett (Archie), who in turn professes to only want Bay (Veronica). Complete with original trope-maker hair colours.

* In the ''Series/Leverage'' season 3 episode "The Boost Job" this trope is hinted at, though it's attributed to two cars. In this case, Veronica is car salesman Penzer's exotic and Betty Eliot's [[PimpedOutCar slightly pimped muscle car]], piloted by Nate.

* ''Series/TheNanny'' is a show told from the point of view of a Veronica. Fran is the wild, lower-class "risky" option that Maxwell falls for, whereas his business partner, C.C. Babcock, is the "safe" Betty option. The LoveTriangle only exists in C.C.'s mind, but that's besides the point.

** Betty is of course the Betty for Archie, while Veronica is his Veronica; Betty is the friendly and safe GirlNextDoor, while Veronica is the more dangerous seductress. Though there's a case to be made that Miss Grundy is his Veronica, Veronica is his Betty (as the safer alternative), and Betty is just an UnluckyChildhoodFriend.
