* MistakenForGay: For years WildMassGuessing and AlternateCharacterInterpretations placed Jughead as this, which made a joke in the first Kevin Keller adventure so funny. Veronica, not knowing Kevin is gay, gave him a giant heart-shaped box of chocolates. Kevin wanted to turn Veronica down (and didn't like the chocolates anyway), so he gave the box to Jughead, who would eat anything. Veronica sees this and, having just found out before that Kevin is gay, starts crying that even ''Jughead'' is stealing boys away from her now.

* StrongFamilyResemblance: Both of Jughead's parents look like him.



* UncannyFamilyResemblance: has a cousin that looks ''exactly'' like him -- Nathan. Problems arose for Jug when Nathan shows up in Riverdale, and starts unintentionally ruining Jughead's reputation; for the unaware, Nathan is TheCasanova. Yeah. There's also Jug's other, more recurring cousin, Souphead, who's basically a Mini-Jughead. Both of Jughead's parents also look like him.

* {{Asexuality}}: Explicitly stated as of 2016. The author of the reboot says that he has been written as straight in the past and someone else in the future may try to write him that way again, though.

* CelibateHero: Jughead was initially misogynistic, but is now usually uninterested in pursuing romance, preferring the simpler (and less painful) world of food. Many stories have played with this, trying to figure him out. The answer reached in the 1990s was that he liked ''some'' girls, but love was so complicated (his first crush broke his heart by moving away when they were kids) that he ultimately returned to the simple joys of eating. As of 2016, confirmed as asexual, a fair difference from celibate (being an orientation versus a choice).

* CharacterDevelopment: A lot of it- initially, she was very flighty and kind of a "Dumb Blonde", and usually entirely focused on domestic pursuits. By the 1960s, she'd morphed into a combination of a tomboy and girly girl. She also used to be ''much'' more desperate to pick up Archie, and was nearly always a definite loser for his heart. Only later did Archie actually seem to ''want'' to date her most of the time.

* SatelliteCharacter: Many would be surprised to know that Betty has two adult siblings- Chic the government spy, and Polly the successful reporter. Neither appear very often.

Archie's best pal, debuting in December 1941 alongside Archie and Betty, Jughead was a noted woman-hater at first, famous for being the Big Eater of Big Eaters. An overall weirdo, he tended to follow his own path, avoiding the girl-crazy antics of his male co-stars. Initially a misogynist, he recieved CharacterDevelopment and eventually became more disinterested in romance as much as anything, and actually made friends with girls like Betty. Some stories in the early 90s played with romance for Jug, but were ultimately short-lived, and as of 2016 he's stated to be asexual. He became an older brother in the 1990s, gaining a sister in Jellybean (aka "Forsythia").

* FreudianExcuse Featured most prominently in the Freshmen Year prequel series. Unlike his friends who all have really close, tight-knit families, Reggie often comes home to an empty house. One particularly effective page has then 14-yr old Reggie sitting alone in the kitchen for hours, hoping in vain that his cool, upperclassmen friends will contact him. Nobody calls.

* SingleTargetSexuality: Almost entirely focused on Jughead, to the point of insanity. A few stories have shown her with interests in other boys, who even returned the favour (Dilton, Jeffrey, even Archie), but most of these were either one-shot stories or short-lived escapades.

* WhyDontYouMarryIt: Nancy sometimes feels like she's playing second-fiddle to Chuck's artist pasttime, and she calls him out on it like this.

One of the newest characters added into the series. Kevin's the new kid in town who's quickly become good friends with Jughead and Veronica. He's also interested in becoming a journalist, and the local news paper publishes his articles now and then. He was introduced in 2010 as one of the first positive portayals of an openly gay character in a series aimed for children -- to put it mildly, it was ''huge''. Kevin's introduction and accompanying mini-series sold out faster than any previous Archie comic, and spawned his own graphic novel within two years. Now he has his own permanent series, which already had a staggering number of pre-orders before it even hit shelves.
