A large, skinny, buck-toothed ugly girl, primarily shown as psychotically [[AbhorrentAdmirer chasing after Jughead]] to play off of his girl-hating nature for cheap gags. It was played so cruelly at first that Jughead even made fun of her appearance on a frequent basis! By later decades, she was developed into a NiceGirl with a crush, and even had other male interests for a while. She debuted in May, 1962, and underwent a visual evolution in the early 2000s, become more homely than hideous.

** There was one time she was sent to a school in Rome full of nasty girls that reduced her to tears on occasion. [[spoiler:When she realizes that she was accidentally picked up at the airport by the wrong person and bought to a reform school instead of a business school, the headmistress starts sweating as soon as Veronica says her last name is actually "Lodge" and picks up the phone to call her dad. She basically begs Ronnie ''not to ruin her life''.]]

* SelfMadeMan: Sometimes Mr. Lodge is written has being born into a wealthy family or he's written as building his own wealth from a middle-class existence. And the trope is subverted hard in [[http://riverdalegirlsrule.tumblr.com/post/101656548934 this comic]].

* HerosClassicCar: For many years Archie was depicted driving a 1916 Ford Model T (or Model A), sometimes as a Hot Rod and sometimes just an old car, prone to breaking down more than driving. In 1983 this was permanently replaced by a 1960s era Ford Mustang, again prone to breaking down. In one comic story Mr. Lodge temporarily trades cars with Archie, giving him a late model sports car in an even trade for Archie's jalopy - Mr. Lodge is attending a classic car show and feels he's sure to win with Archie's car.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: He is sometimes portrayed as this, though it [[DependingOnTheWriter Depends On The Writer]]. One issue even had Mr. Weatherbee and Ms. Grundy ''furious'' at the revelation that Jughead was getting straight-As despite being such an oddball and slacker, and utterly refused to believe it was due to anything other than cheating until he aced a pop quiz.
--> '''Mr. Weatherbee''' Let's just face facts. His mind is a steel trap. Whatever he hears he never forgets; he just files it away until it's needed. He's a sloppy, unkempt, irritating genius.
** He even intentionally got himself sent to detention so he'd have a ''quiet place to study'', it never occurred to him to just ''ask'' if he could stay after class.
