* Out of Chrom's two [[ImpliedLoveInterest Implied Love Interests]] in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', [[CuteClumsyGirl clumsy]] [[FriendToAllLivingThings animal-loving]] Sumia is the Betty, and the [[LaserGuidedAmnesia amnesiac]], [[MysteriousWaif mysterious]] [[PlayerCharacter Female Avatar]] is the Veronica. His ''other'' three love interests have this dynamic, too. Sully is a knight [[ChildhoodFriendRomance he grew up with]] and the Betty, sharp-tongued noblewoman Maribelle is the Veronica, and shy dancer Olivia is the CherylBlossom (taken UpToEleven in that she joins in the chapter ''he has to get married'' in, meaning she ''literally'' would marry him at the last minute).

** Felicia would be the Male Avatar's Betty, being the CuteClumsyGirl he grew up with, and Azura the Veronica, being the MysteriousWaif he feels oddly drawn too. FarmGirl Mozu would the CherylBlossom, as she's an optionally recruited character he has no story ties to.

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', [[TheHero Lloyd's]] two most obvious love interests are Colette, his blond, quiet, gentle VictoriousChildhoodFriend (Betty) and Sheena, the raven-haired, tough, exotic ActionGirl (Veronica). The game lets you decide who he ends up with (including neither), thanks to the multiple endings.

* Present in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemBlazingSword''. Main character Eliwood has his choice of suitors from [[BadassPrincess Lyn]] (Betty), whom he's known a year, [[MysteriousWaif Ninian]] (Veronica), a girl he saved once but never saw again until his story starts, and [[SugarAndIcePersonality Fiora]] (CherylBlossom), who joins the last and latest.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'', lead character Ephraim can choose between sweet, innocent, determined Tana or upbeat, cheerful, crazy (and rich!) L'arachel. However, [[CherylBlossom don't forget that he can have an ending with]] [[TwinCest his twin sister Eirika]] too.

[[spoiler: Though Thracia 776 has a clear slant towards Ferry]].
** And 17 years later, the second lead Seliph has the ProperLady Lana and the ActionGirl Larcei as this. In a subversion, ''both'' of them are his childhood friends.

* In the Zelda games, Link has several cases of these, usually with Zelda as the Betty. The most obvious example is in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', where Midna served as the Veronica (although Zelda's role in this game was fairly minor, so Link's childhood Ilia better fit the Betty role). The game also has a FunnyBackgroundEvent in the form of blonde Beth and dark-haired Luda fighting for the right to nurse an injured Colin back to health. In their case, however, Beth is kind of a {{Tsundere}} and thus much more of a Veronica to silent Luda's Betty.

* While there are never any LoveTriangle shenanigans going on, the "[[UndyingLoyalty neutral]]" characters of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' make this dynamic for each gendered Avatar.
** Felicia would be the Male Avatar's Betty, being the CuteClumsyGirl he grew up with, and Azura the Veronica, being the MysteriousWaif he feels oddly drawn too. FarmGirl Mozu would the CherylBlossom, as she's an optionally recruited character he has no story ties to.
** Jakob would be the Female Avatar's Betty, as like Felicia he also grew up with her, and Kaze the Veronica, being the [[MarriedToTheJob reclusive]] ninja of an enemy nation (though their personalities mix it up--[[{{Tsundere}} Jakob]] is more Veronica, and [[NiceGuy Kaze]] is more Betty). Silas has shades of the Betty, being her ForgottenChildhoodFriend, but is ultimately the CherylBlossom, as he's the last one she "meets".

* In ''DarkMessiahOfMightAndMagic'' Sareth is presented with a choice between Leanna as the Betty and Xana as the Veronica. Ironically, while both of them make blatant demands of Sareth (with Leanna/Betty continually asking Sareth to do the majority of the work involved in saving the day, while Xana/Veronica [[spoiler: is a succubus who makes no attempt to hide her intentions of pushing Sareth into becoming a powerful overlord and being his sexy concubine]]), it's the Betty who pushes things over the edge, depending on the player's choices. At the start of the final level, if [[spoiler: Sareth saved Leanna's life and refused to exorcise Xana in the church, then Leanna accuses him of betraying them and attacks him. Most players take a good deal of satisfaction in killing her at that point.]]

** The same thing applies if you pick a female protagonist in the PlayStation Portable version of the game: while he's seemingly aloof, [[BigManOnCampus Akihiko]] is actually a rather [[{{Adorkable}} awkward]], affable, and [[BigBrotherInstinct caring]] Betty, while the [[JerkassFacade brooding]] and [[SugarAndIceGuy unfriendly]] yet ultimately [[BruiserWithASoftCenter gentle]] Shinjiro is the Veronica. While both are similar in hiding their softer sides, Akihiko is more open and friendly than Shinjiro is. [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Ken]], once again, doesn't fit either category - not only is he more of a ThirdOptionLoveInterest, he's also [[{{Shotacon}} a kid]].

* ''StarWarsTheOldRepublic:'' Most classes have one romance option per gender, but for those with more than one, there usually can be a Betty and Veronica found amongst them:

** {{Subverted|Trope}} in ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt''. Yennefer is devious, duplicitous, amoral and glamourous. Triss is also all of these things to a somewhat lesser degree, as is [[spoiler:Keira Metz]]. Jeez, Geralt, you sure know how to pick 'em.
