* RedHeadedHero



A mysterious individual who appears in the last quarter of the remaining issues of ''ComicBook/LifeWithArchieTheMarriedLife''. Not much is known about his life, except that he was taken in as a new busboy of the Chocklit Shoppe by Jughead. Lately, however, Wendell has been stalking [[StraightGay Kevin Keller]] and his husband Clay Walker for a long time now and hates getting his pictures taken. It seems that there is something very shady about him... [[spoiler:It is later revealed by the end of the series that he is a HeteronormativeCrusader and a gunman who shot Clay during one of his robberies in Issue #22 and later goes on a rampage by shooting down gay employees in the Southport Mall in Issue #30, and is now seeking to end Kevin's life when his attempt to stop Kevin from becoming a senator on gun control fails. It will have to take a HeroicSacrifice from RedHeadedHero Archie to save the day...]]

* 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).
